Please be advised: This User Agreement contains provisions that govern how claims you and we have against each other are resolved (see Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability and Legal Disputes Sections below). It also contains a forum selection clause, which will, with limited exception, subject you to personal jurisdiction, and require you to submit claims you have against us, in a state or federal court located in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. By accepting this User Agreement (1) you will only be permitted to pursue claims against AR Direct on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding and (2) you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.

It is your sole obligation to maintain all requisite license(s) and registration(s) required for the purchase of salvage vehicles, and to update your sales tax exemption certificate.

AR Direct, or the collection agencies we retain, may also report information about your account to credit bureaus, and as a result, late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report. If you wish to dispute the information AR Direct reported to a credit bureau (i.e., Experian, Equifax or TransUnion) please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to dispute the information a collection agency reported to a credit bureau regarding your AR Direct account, you must contact the collection agency directly.
