6.1. Service Fees. While Committocitizenship makes a large amount of information available without cost, it charges fees for some of its services (“Service Fees”). All Service Fees will be set forth on the Site. USCIS and other agencies charge fees for the filing and processing of various government forms (“Government Fees”). Government Fees are separate from our Service Fees and must be paid to the applicable government agency at the time of filing. Unless we indicate otherwise, you remain responsible for paying Government Fees directly to the applicable government agency.
6.2. Payment of Service Fees. When you purchase services for which Service Fees apply, you will be required to provide Committocitizenship with valid, up-to-date credit card or other payment information. You authorize Committocitizenship to charge your credit card or other payment method for all Service Fees you incur as they become due and payable. You are responsible for maintaining up-to-date payment information. If we cannot charge you for Service Fees when due because your payment information is incorrect or no longer valid, or if we do not receive your payment when due, Committocitizenship will have no obligation to provide the services associated with those Service Fees.
6.3. Refunds/Credits. If you believe there has been a billing error or you are not satisfied with the Services, please contact our customer service department at help@Committocitizenship.com so that we may try to resolve your issue, provide a full or partial refund of the fees you paid, or issue a credit. Any request for a refund or credit must be made within 30 days of your purchase of Services and prior to filing your form with the relevant government agency. Committocitizenship reviews requests for refunds and credits on a case-by-case basis, and you may be required to provide us with additional information or documentation. The determination of whether to issue a refund or credit, other than a refund due to a billing error by Committocitizenship, shall be made in Committocitizenship’ sole discretion, in good faith, and we reserve the right to deny a request a refund or credit.

8. Copyright Infringement (Digital Millennium Copyright Act)
Committocitizenship respects the intellectual property of others. We strive to respond promptly to proper notices of copyright infringement by removing or disabling access to allegedly infringing material. It is Committocitizenship’ policy to terminate the access privileges of those who repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others.
Submitting a Copyright Infringement Notification. If you believe that any material appears on the Site in a way that infringes the copyright in a work owned by you, please send a notification containing the following information to Committocitizenship’ Copyright Agent:
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
- a description of the work in which you hold a copyright interest which you believe is being infringed;
- a description of the location on this website where the allegedly infringing material is located (preferably including a URL address);
- your address, telephone number, and email address;
- a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Committocitizenship’ Copyright Agent can be reached at the following address:
When Committocitizenship removes material or disables access to material in response to an infringement notification, Committocitizenship will make a reasonable attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party, provide information about the notification and removal, and provide information about submitting a counter-notification. Committocitizenship may also provide a copy of the infringement notification to the allegedly infringing party.
Submitting a Counter-Notification. If you believe that any material identified in a copyright infringement notification is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, from the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material complained of, you may send a counter-notification containing the following information to Committocitizenship’ Copyright Agent (identified above):
- your physical or electronic signature;
- identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- a statement that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the material; and
- your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in the Western District of Washington, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If Committocitizenship receives a counter-notification, we may send a copy of the counter-notification to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the original complaining party files an action seeking a court order against the person who provided the allegedly infringing material, the removed material may be replaced, or access to it restored, 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notification, at Committocitizenship’ sole discretion.

IN NO EVENT WILL Committocitizenship BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF THE FEES PAID BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES DURING THE SIX MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE.

Committocitizenship shall have the right to participate in the defense of any such claim, at its own cost. You may not settle or negotiate any claim that results in liability to, or imposes any obligation upon, Committocitizenship, financial or otherwise, without the written consent of Committocitizenship.

Upon any termination of this Agreement, you must immediately discontinue use of the Site and Services. Sections 7 and 10-15 shall survive any termination of these this Agreement.
14. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
We believe customer concerns can be resolved quickly by emailing our Customer Care Center at help@Committocitizenship.com. If Committocitizenship is unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after trying to do so informally), we each agree to resolve such disputes through binding arbitration or in small claims court, rather than in a court of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, limits discovery, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
For any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, Committocitizenship will pay all costs of the arbitration. Under certain circumstances as explained below, we will pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator’s award. If you prevail in arbitration, you may recover attorney’s fees from Committocitizenship to the same extent or more as you would in court. The arbitrator shall apply the same limitations period that would apply in court.
14.1. Committocitizenship and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator. The types of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted and include, without limitation:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before these or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to “Committocitizenship,” “you,” and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, business partners, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under this Agreement or any prior agreements between us. Beneficiaries include, but are not limited to, those seeking to change immigration status and any relatives.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court or in a court of proper jurisdiction seeking injunctive relief ancillary to arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Committocitizenship are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action or class or mass arbitration. This Agreement evidences a transaction or website use in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision will survive termination of this Agreement.
14.2. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) to the other party. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Committocitizenship and you do not resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Committocitizenship may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Committocitizenship or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Committocitizenship is entitled.
You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the AAA website, including for California residents, at https://www.adr.org.
14.3. After we receive notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $75,000 (excluding attorney’s fees and expenses). (Currently, the filing fee for consumer-initiated arbitrations is $200, but this is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, Committocitizenship will pay it directly after receiving a written request at the Notice Address.) If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Committocitizenship for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph (f) are for the court to decide. Unless Committocitizenship and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing(s) will take place in the county (or parish) of your contact address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether to conduct the arbitration solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If you choose to proceed either in person or by telephone, we may choose to respond only by telephone or submission. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have a right to a hearing. The parties agree that in any arbitration of a dispute or claim, neither party will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration of any dispute or claim to which Committocitizenship was a party.
14.4. If the arbitrator issues an award in your favor that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, Committocitizenship will:
- pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 (“the Alternative Payment”), whichever is greater; and
- pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorney’s fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the “Attorney’s Payment”).
If Committocitizenship did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the Alternative Payment and the Attorney’s Payment, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney’s fees at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. In assessing whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall include in his or her calculations only the value of any attorney’s fees or expenses you reasonably incurred in connection with the arbitration proceeding before our settlement offer.
14.5. The right to attorney’s fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorney’s fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorney’s fees or costs. Although under some laws we may have a right to an award of attorney’s fees and expenses from you if we prevail in an arbitration proceeding, we will not seek such an award.
14.6. YOU AND Committocitizenship AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, INCLUDING IN ARBITRATION. Unless both you and Committocitizenship agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court could award that is individualized to the claimant and would not affect other customers. Neither you nor we may seek non-individualized relief that would affect other customers. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) may be severed from the arbitration and brought in court.
14.7. If the amount in dispute exceeds $75,000 (excluding attorney’s fees and expenses) either party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by AAA by a written notice of appeal within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award. The members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected according to AAA rules. The three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the appealing party’s notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator panel shall be final and binding, subject to any right of judicial review that exists under the FAA.
14.8. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement or elsewhere to the contrary, Committocitizenship agrees that if we make any changes to this arbitration provision (other than a change to any notice address, website link or telephone number provided herein), that change will not apply to any dispute of which we had written notice on the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate this Agreement, any such termination will not be effective as to this Arbitration Agreement until at least thirty (30) days after written notice of such termination is provided to you, and shall not be effective as to disputes which arose prior to the date of termination.
15. Miscellaneous Terms
15.1. Consent to Electronic Communications. You consent to receive communications from Committocitizenship electronically, and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that Committocitizenship provides to you electronically, via email, or on the Site, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications or agreements be in writing.
15.2. Assignment. You may not assign your rights under this Agreement without the prior written permission of Committocitizenship and any attempt by you to do so shall be null and void.
15.3. Waiver. The waiver of a breach of any provision of this Agreement will not operate or be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.
15.4. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions will continue in full force without being impaired or invalidated in any way.
15.5. Changes to Agreement. Committocitizenship may make changes to this Agreement at any time. If we make any material changes we will notify you via email if you have created an account (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by posting the revised Agreement on the Site prior to any changes becoming effective. You should review our Agreement each time you access the Site or use the Services. Your continued use of the Site or Services following the posting of any changes or notice to you of the changes constitutes your agreement to such changes.
15.6. Governing Law. This Agreement will be construed in accordance with and governed exclusively by the laws of the State of Washington applicable to agreements made among Washington residents and to be performed wholly within such jurisdiction, regardless of the parties’ actual domiciles.
15.7. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all agreements referred to and incorporated herein, sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Committocitizenship, and supersedes any and all other oral or written agreements or understandings between the parties.
