2. OUR SERVICES
Our business formation and incorporation service are offered to our AMG Business customers. It allows our users to form a legal entity in the United States and obtain the necessary documents and resources to build a business or company. Users will be able to access documents generated by the AMG Business platform, connect with AMG Business partners that execute different services for users, and take advantage of perks and discounts within the AMG Business Network.
We charge a fee for use of the services available on our website. You are responsible for any fees applicable to other features, products, services or licenses you purchase or that are purchased through your account. You authorize us or our designated payment processor to charge your specified credit card, debit card or another payment method for such fees.
Unless otherwise specified, all fees are in United States dollars and all charges will be made in United States dollars. Any applicable sales or other taxes are additional to the stated fee. Currency exchange settlements and foreign transaction fees are based on your agreement with your credit card or other payment method provider.
Except as required by law or otherwise stated on the site or in the services, all fees are nonrefundable and payments and purchases may not be canceled by the user. However, we reserve the right to refuse or terminate any purchase or attempted purchase at any time in our sole discretion.
4. APPLICATION FOR INCORPORATION
The process of setting up a company may take longer than the estimated time if one of the parties involved (e.g., IRS, registered agent, or any other party) requires additional time to process the request.
Once the state formation fee is covered by AMG Business, no changes can be made to the selected state of formation or the provided name.
All of the documents will be provided digitally, sent via email, and uploaded to the customer’s profile within AMG Business. A copy of the documents will be provided.

14. CHOICE OF LAW AND BINDING ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY.
The laws of the state of California shall govern this Agreement without giving effect to conflict of laws principles. We agree that any dispute, claim, or disagreement between us shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration. Arbitration is a process in which persons with disputes: (i) agree to submit their disputes to a neutral third person (an “arbitrator”) for a decision; and (ii) waive their rights to file a lawsuit in court to resolve their disputes. Each party to the disputes has an opportunity to present some evidence to the arbitrator. Pre-arbitration discovery may be limited. Arbitration proceedings are private and less formal than court trials. The arbitrator will issue a final and binding decision resolving the disputes, which may be enforced as a court judgment. A court rarely overturns an arbitrator’s decision.
THEREFORE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
For purposes of this Arbitration Provision the words “dispute” and “disputes” are given the broadest possible meaning and include, without limitation (i) all claims, disputes, or controversies arising from or relating directly or indirectly to the signing of this Arbitration Provision, the validity and scope of this Arbitration Provision and any claim or attempt to set aside this Arbitration Provision; (ii) all Federal or State law claims, disputes or controversies, arising from or relating directly or indirectly to this Agreement (including the Arbitration Provision), the information you gave us before entering into this Agreement, and/or any past agreement or agreements between you and us; (iii) all counterclaims, cross-claims and third-party claims; (iv) all common law claims, based upon contract, tort, fraud, or other intentional torts; (v) all claims based upon a violation of any state or federal statute or regulation; (vi) all claims asserted by us against you, including claims for money damages to collect any sum we claim you owe us; (vii) all claims asserted by you individually against us and/or any of our employees, agents, directors, officers, shareholders, managers, or affiliated entities (hereinafter collectively referred to as “related third parties”), including claims for money damages and/or equitable or injunctive relief; (viii) all claims asserted on your behalf by another person; and/or (ix) all claims asserted by you as a private attorney general, as a representative and member of a class of persons, or in any other representative capacity, against us and/or related third parties.
All disputes hereunder shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association in effect at the time of the dispute. The cost of the arbitration will be borne equally by the parties. The arbitration award will be final and binding and may be enforced by any court in Alameda jurisdiction.
Only disputes involving you and AMG Business may be addressed in the arbitration. This means that the arbitration may not address disputes involving other persons with disputes similar to the disputes between you and AMG Business.
The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any legal or equitable remedy or relief that a court could order or grant under this agreement. All statutes of limitations that apply to any dispute shall apply to any arbitration between us. The Arbitrator will issue a decision or award in writing, briefly stating the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law.
Binding Effect. This Arbitration Provision is binding upon and benefits you, your respective heirs, successors, and assigns. The Arbitration Provision is binding upon and benefits us, our successors and assigns, and related third parties. The Arbitration Provision continues in full force and effect, even if your obligations have been prepaid, paid, or discharged through bankruptcy. The Arbitration Provision survives any termination, amendment, expiration, or performance of any transaction between you and us and continues in full force and effect unless you and we otherwise agree in writing.
Severability. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Provision, unless the provision precluding the arbitrator from conducting a class arbitration as set forth above is deemed invalid or unenforceable, in which case this entire Arbitration Provision shall be deemed void.
15. GENERAL PROVISIONS
15.1 Severability. If any provision of these Terms is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the parties with respect to the provisions within the context of the overall Terms. If a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected.
15.3 No Informal Waivers, Agreements or Representations. Any failure to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by one party does not waive the other party’s right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by either party or its affiliates shall be deemed legally binding unless expressly and specifically documented in a writing that refers to the Terms and states expressly the intent to modify or supplement the Terms.
CUSTOMER HEREBY AGREES THAT CUSTOMER HAS READ AND AGREED TO THIS LEGAL DISCLAIMER AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN THEIR ENTIRETY.
