Notice for California Residents

Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, California users are entitled to the following consumer rights notice: If you have a question or complaint regarding the Site, please send an email to [email protected]. You may also contact us by writing to Cygnus Home Service, LLC ATTN Legal Department, P.O. Box 201, Marshall, MN 56258, or by calling us at 1-888-724-9267. California residents may reach the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by mail at 1625 North Market Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (916) 445-1254 or (800) 952-5210.

Arbitration Terms

Please read this section carefully. Except as the Terms & Conditions otherwise provide, you waive your rights to try any claim in court before a judge or jury and to bring or participate in any class, collective, or other representative action.

Agreement to Binding Arbitration

You and Cygnus agree that in the event of any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, statute, or otherwise) arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with (1) the site or (2) the breach, enforcement, interpretation, application, or validity of these Terms & Conditions, such claim, dispute or controversy will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration, except as otherwise set forth in these Arbitration Terms.

Exceptions to Arbitration

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of arbitration: (1) either you or Cygnus can bring an individual claim in small claims court in the United States of America consistent with any applicable jurisdictional and monetary limits that may apply, provided that it is brought and maintained as an individual claim; and (2) you agree that you or Cygnus may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

Jury Trial & Class Action Waiver

Except as the Terms & Conditions otherwise provide, you and Cygnus acknowledge and agree that you are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. You and Cygnus may not be plaintiffs or class members in any purported class, collective, or representative proceeding, and may each bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim.

If any court or arbitrator determines that any term in the immediately preceding paragraph is unenforceable for any reason as to any claim, then the Arbitration Terms will be inapplicable to that claim, and that claim will instead proceed through litigation in court rather than by arbitration, but only after the conclusion of the arbitration of any claim or dispute that is subject to the Arbitration Terms.

Governing Law & Arbitration Rules

The Arbitration Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section. If the FAA is found not to apply to any issue that arises under this section or the enforcement of the Arbitration Terms, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the State of Minnesota.

The arbitration will be conducted under the then current and applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

Initiating Arbitration

If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send a written notice (“Notice”), by first class or certified mail to Cygnus Home Service, LLC, ATTN Legal Department, P.O. Box 201, Marshall, MN 56258. If Cygnus intends to seek arbitration, Cygnus will send a Notice to the current billing address on your account. The Notice must describe the nature and basis of the claim and the specific relief sought. If the parties cannot reach an agreement within 30 days from the receipt of the Notice, either party may initiate arbitration proceedings.

A form to initiate arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send such copy to Cygnus Home Service, LLC ATTN Legal Department, P.O. Box 201, Marshall, MN 56258, and Cygnus will send such copy to the current billing address on your account or to your attorney, if you have retained one.


For claims of $100,000 (US Dollars) or less, Cygnus will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, “Filing Fees”) unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous. For claims over $100,000 (US Dollars), you will be responsible for the Filing Fees.

Location & Procedure

If your claim is for $10,000 (US Dollars) or less, you may choose to have arbitration conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, via a telephone hearing, by an in-person hearing in the county of your residence, or as otherwise mutually agreed to by the parties. If your claim exceeds $10,000 (US Dollars), the location of the arbitration and the parties’ right to a hearing will be determined in accordance with the rules of the AAA.

Arbitrator’s Decision

The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. We and you waive the right to seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration.

Choice of Law, Forum Selection, & Jury Waiver

Except as set forth in the Arbitration Terms section above, all matters relating to your access to or use of the site and all matters arising out of or related to these Terms & Conditions, will be governed by the applicable laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Minnesota, without regard to Minnesota’s choice of law principles. Unless you and us agree otherwise, in the event that it is determined or these Terms & Conditions provide that a claim should not proceed through arbitration, you agree that any claim or dispute (with the exception of a claim or dispute appropriately lodged in any small claims court in the United States of America) shall be resolved in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, and you submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. If subject matter jurisdiction (including diversity jurisdiction) does not exist in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota for any such claim, then the exclusive forum and venue for any such action shall be the courts of the State of Minnesota located in Hennepin County, and you submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. As to any proceeding in court, you and Cygnus both waive your right to a jury trial, unless such waiver is unenforceable.

The choice-of-law and forum-selection provisions in this section do not apply to the Arbitration Agreement or to any arbitrable disputes as provided by the Arbitration Terms section. Instead, as provided in the Arbitration Terms section, the FAA shall apply to any such disputes.


These Terms & Conditions, including policies and information linked from or incorporated herein or otherwise found on the Site, constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Site and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications, agreements, and proposals with respect to the Site. No provision of these Terms & Conditions shall be waived except pursuant to a writing executed by the party against whom the waiver is sought. No failure to exercise, partial exercise of, or delay in exercising any right or remedy under these Terms & Conditions shall operate as a waiver or estoppel of any right, remedy, or condition. Except as provided in the Arbitration Terms section, if any provision of these Terms & Conditions is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not be affected or impaired. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense any of your rights or obligations under these Terms & Conditions without our express prior written consent. We will not be responsible for failure to fulfill any obligation due to causes beyond our control. For contractual purposes, you (1) consent to receive communications from us in an electronic form; and (2) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in writing. You agree to keep your contact information, including email address and telephone number, current.
