Information About You and Your Visits to the Website
Terms and Conditions for Class Action Claims
If you have confirmed that you are eligible to submit a class action claim, you may do so through our site.
You Do Not Need To Use Sparrow To Submit Class Action Claims. Sparrow provides an easy way for users to submit class action claims. However, you do not need to use Sparrow to submit a claim: you may do that by yourself directly through the class action administrator. You generally also have the option to opt out of class action participation entirely. It is your responsibility to review the materials associated with each class action carefully, as they affect your legal rights.
Sparrow Is Not Affiliated With Class Action Claims Administrators. Sparrow is not affiliated with the class action claims administrators, the parties to the class action, or with any court: we cannot speak on their behalf, and are not responsible for their processing, interpretation, acceptance, or denial of your claim; the amount of compensation (if any) they award; or any other actions or omissions that may be made by a class action claims administrator, the parties to the class action litigation, or any court.
When You Use Sparrow To Submit A Claim. If you choose to use Sparrow, when you tell us that you are eligible to file a claim, Sparrow will fill out a claim form for you to review and sign, using your mailing address. Sparrow will provide its own email address and payment information on the form, to compile and organize information sent by the class action administrator, and to compile and track payments received from each class action. You will have an opportunity to review the form before you sign it. Although Sparrow will mail the form to the class administrator and forward 80% of any payments made to you as provided herein, it is you, and not Sparrow, who is submitting the form to the class action administrator. You, not Sparrow are solely responsible for reviewing all applicable information concerning each class action you file a claim for, and for the accuracy and completeness of all information on your claim forms. If you notice any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies on a claim form, it is your responsibility to let us know before you sign it. The claim form, and all other materials related to a class action claim, are provided by the class action administrator, who is solely responsible for their content and for reviewing and processing your claim.
Sparrow Is Not A Law Firm And Does Not Provide Legal Advice. Sparrow provides an easy way for you to submit class action claims to class action settlement claims administrators. Whether to file a class action claim, how to fill out your claim form, whether to participate as a class member or opt out of the class, and other decisions regarding your class action claim are important legal decisions that you need to make on our own, or in consultation with a lawyer. Sparrow is not a law firm and cannot provide legal advice. All content related to legal matters on the Website is provided for your private, noncommercial use and does not constitute legal advice. We do not review any information you provide to us for legal accuracy or sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide opinions about your claim forms, eligibility for class action participation or any other legal matter, or apply the law to the facts of your situation. If you need legal advice on a specific matter, you should consult with an attorney licensed to practice in your jurisdiction. Because Sparrow is not a law firm, please be aware that any communications between you and Sparrow may not be protected under the attorney-client privilege doctrine.
FEE FOR SERVICE. IN EXCHANGE FOR PROVIDING THIS SERVICE TO YOU, WE TAKE 20% OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID IN RESPONSE TO ANY CLAIM YOU SUBMIT THROUGH THE WEBSITE (THE “FEE”), AND REMIT THE REMAINING 80% TO YOU, VIA THE PAYMENT INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED.
Your Cooperation. You agree to respond promptly to any requests to provide information, approvals, authorizations, or decisions that are reasonably necessary to process your User Submissions, and you agree to ensure that any materials you submit are complete and accurate in all respects.
Payment of Our Fee. You agree to pay the Fee for each claim you submit through the Website. Generally, we will deduct the fee and remit the balance to you. However, if funds are remitted to you directly, instead of to us, you agree to send us the Fee within fourteen (14) days of receipt.
Referral Program. If we provide you with a Sparrow Referral URL, you may provide the URL to a friend to receive 50% of our Fee, i.e., 10% of the total class action earnings (the “Referral Fee”), for any claim your friend submits within thirty (30) days after submitting their first claim through the Website, provided that the class action is paid out within six (6) months following the applicable User Submission. You will not be eligible for a Referral Fee if your friend has previously used Sparrow, or if you post your Sparrow Referral URL publicly: the Sparrow Referral URL may only be shared via personal direct message (such as via text or social media direct message).
Delay or Withholding of Funds. We typically send your 80% of the amount received in connection with your settlement claim (or your Referral Fee) within approximately thirty (30) days of our receipt of the funds (which may take 3 to 12 months, or longer). However, we reserve the right to further delay delivery – or to fully withhold and never pay you the funds – if there is any indication of fraud, or for any other reason an indication that you are not entitled to receive the funds. If we have already paid out funds to you and the party who paid the funds (e.g., the class action administrator) demands that they be repaid for any reason, you agree to promptly repay the funds directly to the class action administrator or other applicable party.
Estimates Not Guaranteed. If we estimate a payment amount, or a timeframe in which payment may be available, that is an estimate only. We cannot guarantee specific payment amounts or timeframes.
Taxes. You are solely responsible for all sales, use, excise, income, and any other taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, local, or other government entity, on any amounts payable to or received by you.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction
DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION
Please read this section carefully. It affects your rights.
Most disputes can be resolved informally. If you have a concern, please contact us. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your concern to your satisfaction (or if we haven’t been able to resolve a dispute that we have with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve disputes arising out of your use of the Website through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. It uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. Whether to agree to arbitration is an important decision, and in making it you should not rely solely on the information in this agreement. You may opt out of this arbitration provision by following the instructions below.
References to "you", "we", and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services under this or prior agreements between us.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court if your claims are within that court’s jurisdiction and are pending only in that court. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
(2) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by email, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to us should be addressed to: email@example.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If we and you don't reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled.
(3) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures, and when applicable the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 800.778.7879.
The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision. Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Austin, TX. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
(4) The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND WE 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, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. Further, unless both you and we 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. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
