This Independent Contractor Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into and made effective by and between Smarttfix LLC (the “Company”) whose principal place of business is located at 2319, 80TH Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11214, and _____________________________________ (hereinafter referred to as “Repair Technician”), whose address for business purposes is ________________________________.
This Agreement is governed by the Independent Contractor Terms and Conditions, located at the “Terms and Conditions” on www.smarttfix.com, which are hereby expressly incorporated into this Agreement by this reference. If there are any differences between this Agreement and the Terms and Conditions, the Terms and Conditions shall control. By signing this Agreement, Repair Technician certifies that Repair Technician has read, and agrees to, such Terms and Conditions.
[X] I certify I have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions
The Company operates a proprietary mobile application and associated systems, solutions and an online platform (collectively, the “Software”) that will connect Repair Technician to individual customers seeking service requests (including but not limited to technology device repairs, installation, and diagnostics) by providing customer information (including but not limited to contact information as well as the nature of the service request) (collectively, “Customer Information”) to the Repair Technician (such customers, “Customers,” and such service requests, each, a “Service Request” or “Request”). Company will make available Customer Information to Repair Technicians through the Software, which will allow Repair Technician to possess the necessary information to respond to, perform and fulfill the Service Request (as further described in the Terms and Conditions, the “Service”).
In consideration of the mutual covenants of the parties, and for good and other valuable consideration, the sufficiency and receipt of which are acknowledged, and expressly agreeing to the Terms and Conditions governing Company and Repair Technician’s relationship, rights and obligations, the parties agree as follows:
In exchange for utilizing the Software and providing the Service to the Company’s Customers, and subject to the Terms and Conditions, Repair Technician and Company agree as follows:
This is an “Arbitration Agreement” or “Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes.” The purpose of it is to resolve disputes between Repair Technician and Smarttfix LLC (“Smarttfix” or the “Company”), who are the “Parties.” Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Arbitration Agreement have the meanings given to them in the Terms and Conditions or the Independent Contractor Agreement.
A “Dispute” means, except as provided below, any disagreement or claim between the Parties regarding the Independent Contractor Agreement, Terms and Conditions or any Services performed by Repair Technician. Examples of Disputes include disagreements about payment for Requests, termination of the Agreement or Terms and Conditions, interpretation of terms
contained in the Agreement, the Terms and Conditions or this Arbitration Agreement, enforcement, validity, scope and applicability of the Arbitration Agreement, the Agreement or the Terms and Conditions, or any other type of legal or equitable claim that could be made under federal, state, or local law, and which could be asserted in a court or filed with a government agency, relating to the Agreement, Services or the Requests. By clicking the “I agree to Mutual Arbitration” button, Repair Technician acknowledges Repair Technician’s acceptance of this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims that as a matter of law cannot be subject to arbitration are not included in the term “Dispute.” If a claim includes a Dispute as defined in this Arbitration Agreement and also includes claim(s) that, as a matter of law, cannot be subject to arbitration, the Parties agree that all Disputes will be arbitrated pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement before commencement of litigation of claims that as a matter of law cannot be subject to arbitration
This Arbitration Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. and is a transaction involving commerce. In exchange for the mutual promises, the Parties agree to submit to final and binding arbitration of any Dispute before a single neutral arbitrator. This Arbitration Agreement is intended to apply to the resolution of Disputes that otherwise would be resolved in a court of law. The Parties agree that a Dispute arising under any law that requires resort to, or filing with, an administrative agency, may be brought before such agency as permitted by law, and that after exhaustion of administrative remedies, the Parties must pursue such Dispute through this binding arbitration procedure to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The Parties will try in good faith to mutually select and agree upon an arbitrator and rules and procedures to govern the arbitration. If the Parties cannot agree, then arbitration shall be administered by a single neutral JAMS arbitrator selected in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures and subject to JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (collectively, “Rules”) that are in effect when arbitration is demanded by either of the Parties. The Rules are available at www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. If Repair Technician would like a copy of the Rules, Company will supply Repair Technician with a copy upon request. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall apply. The arbitration shall be held in the county where Repair Technician resides or at another mutually agreed location, unless applicable law requires otherwise.
The Parties agree that, regardless of what the rules and procedures that govern the arbitration provide with regard to arbitration expenses or fees, Company will pay all of the arbitrator’s fees, arbitration expenses, and any other costs associated with the arbitration hearing, except that each Party shall pay its own attorney’s fees and costs, if any, unless applicable controlling law requires payment of another’s fees and costs. The arbitrator will allow for sufficient discovery procedures, including access to essential documents and witnesses, to satisfy principles of due process. The arbitrator may award any remedy or relief available under applicable law in a court proceeding including, without limitation, damages, costs, and injunctive relief. The arbitrator shall not have the power or authority to commit errors of law or legal reasoning. After completion of the arbitration, the arbitrator shall submit a decision in writing, specifying the findings of fact and the conclusions of law on which the decision is based; in his or her discretion, the arbitrator may award fees and costs as provided for by applicable law.
Except as otherwise required under applicable law: (1) Repair Technician and Company intend and agree that class action procedures shall not be asserted, nor will they apply, in any arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement; (2) Repair Technician and Company agree that each will not assert class action claims against the other in arbitration or otherwise, including in any civil court; and (3) both Repair Technician and Company shall only submit their own, individual claims in arbitration and will not seek to represent the interests of any other person in the arbitration. Repair Technician and Company expressly waive the right to assert or participate in any class action as a class member against the other regarding any Dispute, whether in a civil court or in arbitration. This Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes does not prevent either Repair Technician or Company from participating as a witness in any proceeding, whether in court or in arbitration.
The Parties agree that the enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed exclusively by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 2 (“FAA”), and acknowledge that Company’s business and the nature of Repair Technician’s Services involve interstate commerce. The arbitrator shall have the authority to determine the enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement as well as whether a claim is arbitrable, both of which shall be decided under the FAA. The arbitrator shall apply the laws of California unless applicable law in the state in which the Repair Technician resides requires otherwise, as the substantive law to the proceeding, except for any claim to which Federal substantive law would apply. The Parties each expressly waive the right to a jury trial and any other civil court proceeding, and agree that the arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on the Parties.
Should any provision of this Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes be deemed unenforceable or invalid, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable to the fullest extent of the law.
Notwithstanding any other provision of the Arbitration Agreement or the Terms and Conditions, this Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes may only be modified by the mutual, written agreement of the Company and Repair Technician.
Repair Technician may opt out and decide not to be subject to this Arbitration Agreement by submitting a signed and dated statement on an “Arbitration Agreement Opt Out” form.

This Arbitration Agreement will be in effect from the signing of this Arbitration Agreement until it is superseded in writing by some subsequent agreement, or until Repair Technician timely opts out of this Arbitration Agreement.
