LiftRocket's Services & Fees
7.1. Overview of LiftRocket's Services
LiftRocket offers Lifts to its users. A Lift is our way of providing fast funding to help LiftRocket members meet emergency financial needs. A Lift requires answering a few questions and hooking up a bank account. We encourage you to add a Booster to improve your chances of receiving a Lift and increasing the amount you can receive. A Booster agrees to help make payments on the requester’s Pay It Forward plan in the event the requester is unable to complete a payment.
7.2. Lift Features
A Lift is an advance of funds to meet a requester’s emergency financial needs. Lifts are disbursed after evaluation of information provided by the requester and the requester’s booster, including, but not limited to:
We ask requesters to pay an amount equal to the original advance plus fees (described below) through a payment schedule called a Pay It Forward plan. Payments are scheduled automatically through electronic payments from the requester’s bank account. Payments are currently collected on a bi-weekly basis (once every two weeks) on a regular schedule established by LiftRocket when Lifts are disbursed.
If the requester is unable to complete an automatic payment, LiftRocket may ask the booster to make the payment.
LiftRocket may allow boosters to complete their commitment to make payments on behalf of the requester after a defined period of successful consecutive payments from the requester. That period is currently six months.
LiftRocket may allow requesters to qualify for a larger Lift or a new Lift based on their record of completing Pay It Forward payments successfully.
7.3. Lift fees
Bi-weekly Pay It Forward payments include three components
|Balance repayment||return the original balance of your Lift in small, easy to manage pieces.||Dependent on the size of the Lift|
|Service fee||help to pay for LiftRocket’s operating expenses||Currently $3.00 per payment|
|Community contribution||Help us serve more members and fill gaps if members need extra help||Dependent on the size of the Lift|
You can find all of your Pay It Forward details, including payment amounts, on your Lift dashboard.
7.4. Credit and Debit Authorization For Pay It Forward payments
We require that requesters link a Bank Account or debit card (a "Payment Method") for payment of the Pay It Forward plan. We will automatically charge your Payment Method for the Pay It Forward amount every two weeks on a schedule established when your Lift is awarded. Automatic payments will continue until you complete your Pay It Forward plan or you pay your remaining Lift balance in full through one or more manual payments. Upcoming dates upon which you will be charged for subsequent Membership Fees will also be displayed in the app.
LiftRocket will do its best to collect the Pay It Forward payment when you have the funds available to pay it. If our attempt to collect the Pay It Forward payment is declined, LiftRocket reserves the right to try up to two (2) additional times, for a total of three (3) debit attempts. After the first decline, LiftRocket will inform you and provide an opportunity for you to initiate a manual payment. If you are unable to initiate and complete a manual payment, we will ask your booster to make the payment on your behalf.
LiftRocket monitors your balance and does its best effort to ensure you have sufficient funds before debiting your account, but the company makes no warranties that an overdraft will not occur.
We also require that boosters link a Bank Account or debit card (a "Payment Method") for payment of the Pay It Forward plan in the event a requester is unable to complete a payment. We will do our best to collect the Pay It Forward plan from the requester but if we are unable to do so, we will inform the booster and then charge the booster’s Payment Method for the uncollected amount.
You acknowledge that, as applicable, the electronic authorization contained in this Section represents your written authorization for automated clearinghouse ("ACH") transactions as provided herein and will remain in full force and effect until you notify LiftRocket that you wish to revoke this authorization by emailing member.services@LiftRocket.com. You must notify LiftRocket at least three (3) business days before the scheduled debit date in order to cancel this authorization. When you call or email, please include the name and telephone number associated with your LiftRocket User Account. Failure to provide correct and complete information may make it impossible for LiftRocket to stop withdrawal of the preauthorized withdrawal.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless LiftRocket from and against any loss incurred as a result of its withdrawal of a preauthorized debit transaction from your Bank Account or debit card if any of the information relied upon in your request to stop payment is incorrect or incomplete. If you have followed the instructions in this section to notify LiftRocket of your desire to revoke your authorization at least three (3) business days before the scheduled debit date, LiftRocket will be liable for your losses or damages directly caused by our failure to stop any preauthorized transaction. If we do not receive notice at least three (3) business days before the scheduled debit date, we may attempt, in our sole discretion, to cancel the transaction. However, we assume no responsibility for our failure to do so.
You warrant and represent to LiftRocket that you have the right to authorize us to charge and credit your Bank Account or debit card for payments due to us under this Agreement.
You represent that you are capable of saving or otherwise storing a copy of this electronic authorization for your records, and the credit and debit transactions you request comply with applicable law.
7.5. Credit reporting
LiftRocket does not currently report information about Lifts to credit reporting agencies.
7.6. LiftRocket's Recourse In the Event of Non-Payment
This Section sets forth the entirety of LiftRocket's recourse against requesters or boosters in the event that a Pay it Forward plan is not fully completed. Any other recourse or remedies claimed by LiftRocket, including but not limited to, indemnities, limitations on liability, and disclaimers of warranty described in this Agreement, do not apply to non-completion of a Pay It Forward plan.
LiftRocket warrants that it has no legal or contractual claim against requesters or boosters based on a failure to complete a Pay It Forward plan, but LiftRocket will suspend your access to the Services and eligibility for additional Lifts until you complete the Pay It Forward plan in full. With respect to a failure to complete the plan in full, LiftRocket warrants it will not engage in any debt collection activities, place the amount owed with or sell to a third party for the purpose of debt collection activities, or report you to a consumer reporting agency. LiftRocket does not waive any rights regarding fraudulent activity, and LiftRocket will pursue instances of fraud.
It is your responsibility to contact LiftRocket if you are unable to meet your Pay It Forward plan payment on the scheduled due-date. LiftRocket monitors your Bank Account balance before withdrawing the funds to ensure there are sufficient funds, but LiftRocket is not responsible for any overdraft fees, over-the-limit fees, or insufficient fund charges (including finance charges, late fees, or similar charges) that result from your failure to maintain a balance or available credit in your Bank Account sufficient to make a Pay It Forward plan payment.

Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration
YOU HAVE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS PROVISION AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 20.3 BELOW.
18.1. Election to Arbitrate
You and LiftRocket agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for resolution of a Claim be final and binding arbitration pursuant to this section 20 (the "Arbitration Provision"), unless you opt out as provided in section 20.3 below. As used in this Arbitration Provision, "Claim" shall include any past, present, or future claim, dispute, or controversy involving you (or persons claiming through or connected with you), on the one hand, and us on the other hand, relating to or arising out of this Agreement, and/or the activities or relationships that involve, lead to, or result from this Agreement, such as the Site or the Services and including (except to the extent provided otherwise in the last sentence of Section 20.8 below) the validity or enforceability of this Arbitration Provision, any part thereof, or the entire Agreement. Claims are subject to arbitration regardless of whether they arise from contract; tort (intentional or otherwise); a constitution, statute, common law, or principles of equity; or otherwise. Claims include matters arising as initial claims, counter‐claims, cross-claims, third-party claims, or otherwise. Please note that you may continue to assert Claims in small claims court, if your Claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The scope of this Arbitration Provision is to be given the broadest possible interpretation that is enforceable.
18.2. Applicability of the Federal Arbitration Act; Arbitrator's Powers.
This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the "FAA"). The arbitrator will apply substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations. The arbitrator may award damages or other types of relief permitted by applicable substantive law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator will not be bound by judicial rules of procedure and evidence that would apply in a court. The arbitrator shall take steps to reasonably protect confidential information.
18.3. Opt-Out of Arbitration Provision.
You may opt out of this Arbitration Provision for all purposes by sending an arbitration opt out notice to member.services@LiftRocket.com, within 60 days of the date of your electronic acceptance of the Agreement of this Agreement. The opt out notice must clearly state that you are rejecting arbitration; identify the Agreement to which it applies by date; provide your name, address, and social security number; and be signed by you. You may send an opt-out notice in any manner you see fit as long as it is received at the specified address within the specified time. No other methods can be used to opt out of this Arbitration Provision. If the opt out notice is sent on your behalf by a third party, such third party must include evidence of his or her authority to submit the opt out notice on your behalf.
18.4. Informal Dispute Resolution.
If a Claim arises, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. You agree that before filing any claim in arbitration, you may submit Claims by sending an email to member.services@LiftRocket.com at any time.
18.5. Arbitration Procedures.
The party initiating arbitration shall do so with the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") or Judicial Alternatives and Mediation Services ("JAMS"). The arbitration shall be conducted according to, and the location of the arbitration shall be determined in accordance with, the rules and policies of the administrator selected, except to the extent the rules conflict with this Arbitration Provision or any countervailing law. If you have any questions concerning the AAA or would like to obtain a copy of the AAA arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 778-7879 or visit the AAA's web site at: www.adr.org. If you have any questions concerning JAMS or would like to obtain a copy of the JAMS arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 352-5267 or visit their web site at: www.jamsadr.com. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, or any other location we agree to.
18.6. Arbitration Fees.
If we elect arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator's filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you elect arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the rules of the administrator selected, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the administrator's rules. We shall pay the administrator's hearing fees for one full day of arbitration hearings. Fees for hearings that exceed one day will be paid by the party requesting the hearing, unless the administrator's rules or applicable law require otherwise, or you request that we pay them and we agree to do so. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys' fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.
Within 30 days of a final award by the arbitrator, any party may appeal the award for reconsideration by a three-arbitrator panel selected according to the rules of the arbitrator administrator. In the event of such an appeal, any opposing party may cross-appeal within 30 days after notice of the appeal. The panel will reconsider de novo all aspects of the initial award that are appealed. Costs and conduct of any appeal shall be governed by this Arbitration Provision and the administrator's rules, in the same way as the initial arbitration proceeding. Any award by the individual arbitrator that is not subject to appeal, and any panel award on appeal, shall be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
18.8. No Class Actions.
NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS (INCLUDING AS PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHERS), EVEN IF THE CLAIM OR CLAIMS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this Section 20.8, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this Section 20.8 shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.
18.9. Survival and Severability of Arbitration Provision.
This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision other than section 20.8 is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Arbitration Provision's limitations as to a particular claim for relief or particular term, then that claim (and only that claim) or that term (and only that term) must be severed from the Arbitration Provision and may be brought in court. If an arbitration is brought on a class, representative, or collective basis, and the limitations on such proceedings in section 20.8 are finally adjudicated pursuant to the last sentence of section 20.8 to be unenforceable, then no arbitration shall be had. In no event shall any invalidation be deemed to authorize an arbitrator to determine Claims or make awards beyond those authorized in this Arbitration Provision.
18.10. Judicial Forum for Claims.
Except as otherwise required by applicable law or governing loan agreement, in the event that this Arbitration Provision is found not to apply to you or your Claim, you and LiftRocket agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of New York, New York. Both you and LiftRocket consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
18.11. WAIVER OF RIGHT TO LITIGATE.
THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY, BUT WILL NOT HAVE THAT RIGHT IF ANY PARTY ELECTS ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS IN A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY UPON ELECTION OF ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY.
Governing Law and Venue
Except for Section 20 which is governed by the FAA, and the Credit Builder, this Agreement and all Claims are governed by the laws of the State of Connecticut, without regard to conflict-of-law rules.
