DISPUTE RESOLUTION/ARBITRATION AGREEMENT and CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Arbitration is a method of resolving any Claim without filing a lawsuit. In this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver (collectively including all of this section of this Plan), You, We/the Administrator and Obligor (the "Parties") are agreeing to submit any and all Claims to binding arbitration on an individual basis for resolution. This Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver sets forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to binding arbitration. The Parties agree that any and all claims, disputes and controversies related in any way to this Plan, including but not limited to claims related to the underlying transaction giving rise to this Plan, or claims related to the sale, financing or fulfillment of this Plan (collectively, "Claims"), shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration. "Claims" shall be given the broadest meaning possible and includes, without limitation, Claims arising under contract, tort, statute, regulation, rule, ordinance or other rule of law or equity, and Claims against any of Administrator's and Obligor's owners, shareholders, members, affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents, successors, or assigns. "Claims" does not include a statutory claim for public injunctive relief brought under any California statute enacted for a public reason, provided that you are a California resident or that you received your Plan in California. In arbitration, Claims are resolved by an arbitrator and not by a judge or jury. THE PARTIES, INCLUDING YOU, WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE CLAIMS DECIDED BY A JUDGE OR JURY. In addition, except as expressly stated in the Class Action Waiver or otherwise expressly stated herein, the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues related to the enforcement, applicability, scope, validity, and interpretation of this Arbitration Agreement, including but not limited to any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the Arbitration Agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, each of the Parties retains the right to seek remedies in small claims court to resolve any Claim, on an individual basis, within the jurisdiction of small claims court. You acknowledge your understanding that all Parties hereunder are waiving their rights to go to court, except for small claims court, to resolve any Claims arising under or related to this Plan.

The Parties agree and acknowledge that the transaction evidenced by this Plan affects interstate commerce. The Parties further agree that all issues relating to this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver, including its enforcement, scope, validity, interpretation, and implementation, will be determine pursuant to federal substantive law and the substantive and procedural provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act ("Act"), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16. If federal substantive law holds that state law should apply to any issue relating to this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver, then the law of the state where you received this Plan through the purchase of your eligible tire shall apply, without regards to conflicts of law.

CLASS ACTION WAIVER. All Claims must be brought solely in an individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, representative action, mass action, private attorney general action or action on behalf of the general public, or similar proceeding (any such action is referred to herein as a "Class Action"). NO CLAIM WILL BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS ACTION BASIS. The Parties, including you, expressly waive any right or ability to bring, assert, maintain, or participate as a class member in any Class Action in court, arbitration, or any other forum, and the right for anyone to do so on Your behalf. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person or entity's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any Class Action. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to combine or aggregate multiple persons' or entities' Claims or discovery, to conduct a Class Action or to make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Parties agree that the enforcement, applicability, scope, validity, and/or interpretation of this Class Action Waiver shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. If this Class Action Waiver is ruled unenforceable or is interpreted to not prevent a Class Action, then the Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, and any Claims shall proceed in a court of law and not in arbitration. The Parties agree that if an arbitrator renders a decision regarding the enforcement, applicability, scope, validity, and/or interpretation of this Class Action Waiver, or determines that a Class Action may proceed in arbitration, then: (1) the arbitrator has exceeded his powers, pursuant to §10(a)(4) of the FAA, by taking such action; (2) either party may seek immediate review of that decision by a court of competent jurisdiction; and (3) a court of competent jurisdiction shall apply a "de novo" standard of review of that decision if such standard of review is allowed by the common law or statutes of that state. The Parties, including You, agree that if for any reason a Claim proceeds to Court, rather than arbitration, (1) the Claim will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis, and (2) no Party may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any Class Action.

The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The arbitration shall be conducted pursuant to the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "Code"). Information on AAA and a copy of the Code may be found at the following number and URL: American Arbitration Association, (800) 778-7879, www.adr.org. The arbitration will be governed by federal substantive law and the substantive and procedural provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act ("Act"), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16. If federal substantive law holds that state law should apply to any issue relating to the arbitration, then the law of the state where you originally received this Plan shall apply, without regards to conflicts of law. The arbitration will occur before a single, neutral arbitrator selected in accordance with the Code in effect at the time the arbitration is commenced. If your total damage claims (not including attorney's fees) do not exceed $25,000, then all Claims shall be resolved by the Code's Procedures for the Resolution of Disputes through Document Submission, except that a Party may ask for a hearing or the arbitrator may decide that a hearing is necessary. If a hearing is held, you have a right to attend the arbitration hearing in person, and You may choose to have any arbitration hearing held in the county in which You live, the closest AAA location to Your residence, or via telephone. In the event that the specified arbitration forum is unavailable, the Parties may agree on a substitute arbitration forum. If the Parties cannot agree, a court of competent jurisdiction may appoint a substitute arbitration forum. For information about how to initiate arbitration with the AAA, the Parties may refer to the AAA Code and forms at www.adr.org  or call (800) 778–7879. If you initiate arbitration with AAA, You must pay the AAA filing fee in an amount no greater than the fee you would have to pay if you filed a complaint in federal court. The Administrator will pay any remaining Costs of arbitration required by the Code ("Arbitration Costs"); however, if the arbitrator determines that any of your claims are frivolous, You shall bear all of the Arbitration Costs. If the Obligor initiates arbitration against you, the Obligor will pay the AAA filing fee and the Arbitration Costs. Each party will pay his/her/its own attorney's fees, as well as costs relating to proof and witnesses, regardless of who prevails, unless applicable law and/or the Code gives a party the right to recover any of those fees from the other party. An arbitration award may not be set aside except upon the limited circumstances set forth in the Federal Arbitration Act. An award in arbitration will be enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act by any court having jurisdiction. The time for commencing an arbitration asserting any Claim shall be determined by reference to the applicable statute(s) of limitations, including the applicable rules governing the commencement of the limitations period, and a Claim in arbitration is barred to the same extent it would be barred if it were asserted in court of law or equity rather than in arbitration.

If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, all the remaining portions of this Arbitration Agreement shall nevertheless remain valid and enforceable, provided, however, that if any portion of the Class Action Waiver is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then this Arbitration Agreement shall be invalidated and unenforceable in its entirety. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver and the other provisions of this Plan or any other agreement, this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver governs.

OPT-OUT PROVISION. YOU SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER BY PROVIDING WRITTEN NOTICE OF YOUR INTENTION TO DO SO TO THE PROGRAM ADMINISTRATOR OR THE OBLIGOR WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS OF THE RECEIPT OF THIS PLAN (THE DATE OF RECEIPT BEING INDICATED ON THE INVOICE FOR YOUR TIRE PURCHASE.  To opt out, You must send written notice to either: (1) 10170 Church Ranch Way, Suite 320, Westminster, CO 80021, Attn: Legal or (2) legal@fortegra.com, with the subject line, "Arbitration/Class Action Waiver Opt Out."

Local rules of law as to procedure and evidence will apply. Payment of the arbitrator's fee shall be made by Us if coverage is found to exist. If coverage is not found, each party will: (a) pay its chosen arbitrator; and (b) bear the other expenses of the arbitrator equally.

WISCONSIN: If a covered claim is not paid within sixty (60) days after You provide proof of loss, or if the Obligor becomes insolvent or otherwise financially impaired, You may file a claim directly with the insurance company, listed in the Insurance Statement section of this Plan, for reimbursement, payment, or provision of the service. In the state of Wisconsin, preauthorization of repair work is required by Administrator. However, if extenuating circumstances prevent You from obtaining preauthorization, Administrator will not deny a claim based solely on the lack of preauthorization.
THIS PLAN IS SUBJECT TO LIMITED REGULATION BY THE OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF INSURANCE.
