Terms & Conditions
Last updated January 19, 2022
These Terms state that any disputes between you and us must be resolved in binding arbitration, that you waive the right to participate in any class action, and that the laws of the state of Alaska apply to all interactions between you and us. You may opt out of arbitration and the class action waiver by following the procedures below in Section 10.g.
We match qualified small business owners with active lending sources. Through our matching process, we help business owners identify the business loan category and specific lender(s) that offer the best opportunity for that business owner to prepare for and acquire financial services. Once prepared, small business owners are then introduced to what we believe to be the most appropriate lending source(s) we represent.

10. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and us in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and us agree to resolve disputes through binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction (“Agreement to Arbitrate”). Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, condenses discovery, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that individual party’s claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, WE AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
a. Claims To Be Resolved By Binding Arbitration. We and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) 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; (ii) claims that arose before this or any prior Terms; (iii) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and (iv) claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms.
b. Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 10(a), we and you agree that no statement herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either party’s right: (i) to pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available; (ii) to seek injunctive relief in any competent court of law; or (iii) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
c. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and us will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
d. Notice and Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to us should be addressed to: Plan B Capital, 3705 Arctic Blvd, #2532, Anchorage, AK 99503 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding.
e. Fees. In the event you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, we will, at your request, reimburse you for your payment of the arbitration filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00), in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any request for payment of fees by us will be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), you agree to reimburse us for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by us on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules.
If your claim is for said claim amount or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator either through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules.
Any in-person arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Anchorage, Alaska. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding as well as upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
f. No Class Actions. Unless both we and you 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.
WE AND YOU AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
g. Opt-Out. If you are a new Site user, you can choose to reject the arbitration agreement contained in this Section 10 (“opt-out”) by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty (30) days after the date you accept these Terms for the first time. You must mail the Opt-Out Notice to the Notice Address listed in Section 10(d), above.
The Opt-Out Notice must contain your name, address (including street address, city, state and zip code), and the user name(s) and email address(es) associated with the Plan B Capital account(s) to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of the Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Agreement to Arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
h. Modifications. If we make any future change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. You acknowledge and agree that, in the event you reject any future change, your account with us shall be immediately terminated and you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
i. Severability and Enforceability. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Section 10 is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section 10 shall still apply. If the entirety of this Section 10 is found to be unenforceable, then the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 15 shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms, and that the remainder of the Terms will continue to apply.
11. TELEPHONE COMMUNICATIONS AND AGREEMENT TO BE CONTACTED
a. Call Recording and Monitoring. You acknowledge that telephone calls to or from us, together with our agents and affiliates, may be monitored and recorded and you agree to such monitoring and recording.
b. Providing Telephone Numbers and Other Contact Information. You verify that any contact information provided to us, including but not limited to your name, mailing address, email address, your residential or business telephone number, and/or your mobile telephone number, is true and accurate. You verify that you are the current subscriber or owner of any telephone number you provide. You are strictly prohibited from providing a phone number that is not your own. If we discover that any information provided in connection with your registration is false or inaccurate, we may suspend or terminate your account at any time. Should any of your contact information change, including ownership of your telephone numbers, you agree to immediately notify us before the change goes into effect by replying STOP to any text message you may receive from us, by calling us at (907) 206-2512, or notifying us in writing by sending such notification via email to info@planBcapital.biz.
c. Your Consent to Receive Automated Calls/Texts. You acknowledge that by voluntarily providing your telephone number(s), you expressly agree to receive artificial voices, prerecorded voice messages, and/or autodialed calls and text messages (such as SMS, MMS, or successor protocols or technologies) from us, and third parties acting on our behalf, related to promotions, your account, any application or transaction, and/or your relationship with us. You acknowledge that automated calls or text messages may be made to your telephone number(s) even if your telephone number(s) is registered on any state or federal Do Not Call list. You agree that we may obtain, and you expressly agree to be contacted at, any email addresses, mailing addresses, or phone numbers provided by you or your representative at any time or obtained through other lawful means,such as skip tracing, caller ID capture, or other means. You agree to receive automated calls and text messages from us, even if you cancel your account or terminate your relationship with us, except if you opt-out (see below). You understand that you do not have to agree to receive automated promotional calls/texts as a condition of purchasing any goods or services or account creation. If you do not consent, you may call us at (907) 206-2512 or via email to info@planBcapital.biz to further inquire about our products and services. To opt-out, please see the Opt-Out Instructions below.
d. Opt-Out Instructions. Your consent to receive automated calls and texts is completely voluntary. You may opt-out at any time. To opt-out of text messages, reply STOP to any text message you receive from us. You acknowledge and agree to accept a final text message confirming your opt-out. We may use different shortcodes for different messaging purposes, so texting STOP to one shortcode will not effectuate a stop request for all shortcodes to which you are subscribed. If you would like to stop messages from multiple shortcodes, reply STOP to each shortcode to which you would like to unsubscribe. Alternatively, you may email info@planBcapital.biz advising that you want to opt out of text messages and specifying the phone number(s) for which that opt-out should apply.
To opt-out of automated voice calls (not text messages), you must: (i) provide us with written notice revoking your consent to receiving automated calls; (ii) in that written notice, you must include your full name, mailing address, account number, and the specific phone number(s) for which you wish to stop automated calls; and (iii) send this written notice to info@planBcapital.biz.
It is your sole responsibility to notify us if you no longer want to receive automated calls or text messages. You waive any rights to bring claims for unauthorized or undesired calls or text messages by failing to opt-out immediately or by failing to follow these instructions. Please allow up to thirty (30) days to process any opt-out request. Please note that, if you opt out of automated calls or text messages, we reserve the right to make non-automated calls to you. It is possible that third parties may have your contact information and you may continue to receive communications from these third parties despite an opt out request. We are not responsible for unwanted contact from third parties. Please contact third parties directly to inform them of your communication preferences.
e. Fees and Charges. There is no fee to receive automated telephone calls or text messages from us. However, you may incur a charge for these calls or text messages from your telephone carrier, which is your sole responsibility. Message and data rates may apply. Check your telephone plan and contact your carrier for details. You represent and warrant you are authorized to incur such charges and acknowledge that we are not responsible for such charges.
f. Unauthorized Use of Your Telephone Device. You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your telephone device. Although we will not be liable for losses caused by any unauthorized use of your telephone device, you may be liable for our losses due to such unauthorized use.
g. Your Indemnification to Us. You agree to indemnify us for any privacy, tort, or other claims, including claims under the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act or its state law equivalent, including claims relating to your voluntary provision of a telephone number that is not owned by you and/or your failure to notify us of any changes in your contact information, including telephone number. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless from and against any and all such claims, losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees). We shall have the exclusive right to choose counsel, at your expense, to defend any such claims.
h. Release of Claims. In consideration of the Service provided by us, you hereby release us from any and all claims, causes of action, lawsuits, injuries, damages, losses, liabilities, or other harms resulting from or relating to telephone calls or text messages including without limitation any claims, causes of action, or lawsuits based on any alleged violations of the law (including, without limitation, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Truth in Caller ID Act, Telemarketing Sales Rule, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or any similar state and local acts or statutes, and any federal or state tort or consumer protection laws).
i. General. You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone devices and other equipment and software, and all internet service provider, mobile service, and other services needed to receive calls and text messages. Text messaging may be available only with select carriers with compatible handsets. Your obligations under this Section will survive termination of these Terms of Service.

Either you or we may terminate your account at any time, for any reason or no reason, without explanation, effective upon written notice to the other party. We reserve the right to immediately suspend or terminate your access to any of the Service, without notice, for any reason or no reason. We also reserve the right to remove your account information or data from our Service and any other records at any time at our sole discretion.

The FAQ’s found on the Site are for informational purposes only and are not deemed to be part of these Terms.
Unless otherwise explicitly stated, the Terms will survive termination of your registration to the Service.

Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Site or Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
The section titles in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
c. Securities Statements. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR OTHER GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND AS TO THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, OR TIMELINESS OF ANY PRICE QUOTES, NOR DO WE MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR OTHER GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND AS TO THE PRESENT OR FUTURE VALUE OR SUITABILITY OF ANY SALE, TRADE, OR OTHER TRANSACTION INVOLVING ANY PARTICULAR FINANCIAL TRANSACTION OR ANY OTHER TRANSACTION OF ANY KIND. You understand we are an independent sales organization (ISO) and thus are not a broker or dealer in financial products, or an investment or financial advisor.
