  6. Account Closure, Freeze or Suspension. Upon the closure of your Hyve Account for any reason, we will transfer the funds in your Hyve Account, if any, to an account of your choosing or, at our discretion, we may send you a check for the amount of the funds to you at your street address in our records.

You acknowledge and agree that Hyve maintains records of your consent to the documents made available, accurately, and that are made available to You for the period required by applicable law.
  1. INVESTMENT SERVICES. You may only use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial use and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party.
  1. You can determine which Services are best suited for your needs. For instance, you can establish an investment strategy using our Investment Services service. Based on the information we have about you, we will provide recommendations for a financial strategy that is intended to fit your financial and risk profile. You will be the one deciding how much you wish to set aside.
  2. Past performance is not a guarantee of future success, and, in fact, volatility means that returns in any period may be far above or below those of a previous period. Some customers may have investment results that materially differ from those we might indicate by our investment tools and projections. Investments at Hyve may lose value. Hyve is unable to predict or forecast market fluctuations or other uncertainties that may affect the value of any investment. Model predictions are inherently limited in that they do not represent actual trading nor material economic or market factors that might have had an impact on Hyves’s advice. Portfolio performance projections are based on Hyve’s current recommended portfolios, and, for periods that pre-date the issuance of funds in our current recommended portfolios, broad market indexes. Portfolio performance projected account for the reinvestment of dividends as well as investment fund fees, but they do not take into account management fees earned by Hyve. While the features within the Investment Services are designed to provide helpful investing guidance, as an individual, you must carefully consider the appropriateness of the proposed portfolios in light of your own personal financial circumstances, including cash flow needs, tax circumstances, or other complex or subjective concerns. Hyve does not offer to give legal or tax advice. For specific legal or tax matters, you should consult with your own legal and/or tax advisors. You are urged to use all available resources to educate yourself about investing in general, as well as the investments and overall composition of your portfolio and Investment Services. Additionally, market conditions and your personal financial circumstances may change - perhaps suddenly or maybe gradually over time. Monitoring and adjusting your Investment Services to suit changing circumstances is your responsibility, and it is recommended that you reassess any investing program on a regular basis to ensure that it remains consistent with your current financial resources and investment objectives.
  3. Hyve is a financial adviser only in regard to the product provided and Services used by you pursuant to these Terms.

Before using the Services, you should consider obtaining additional information and advice from a financial adviser.

  2. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. Please read carefully.  This Arbitration Agreement is part of the Terms of Use.




Unless prohibited by federal law, you and Hyve agree to arbitrate all Claims through BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, as explained below.  The term "Claim" means any action, dispute, claim, or controversy of any kind arising out of, in connection with or in any way related to the Terms of Use or the Services, including without limitation any aspect whatsoever of the past, present, or future relationship or conduct of the Parties.  The term "Claim" includes, without limitation: claims under federal or state consumer protection laws; claims in tort or contract; claims under statutes or common law; claims at law or in equity; or other past, present, or future claims, counterclaims, cross-claims, third party claims, interpleaders or otherwise.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, the Parties agree that any claim relating to the applicability of this arbitration agreement or arbitrability of any Claim shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction rather than the arbitrator, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void, voidable, or unconscionable.

Background and Scope.

What is binding arbitration?

An alternative to court.

In binding arbitration, a neutral third party (an “Arbitrator”) resolves Claims in a hearing.  In any arbitration, neither you nor Hyve will be able to have a court or jury trial or participate in a class action or class arbitration. 

Is it different from court and jury trials?


The hearing is private and less formal than court.  Other rights that either Party would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including the right to appeal.  The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding. 

Who does the Arbitration Agreement cover?

Me, Hyve, and Others.

This Arbitration Agreement covers all parties involved in any Claims, such as heirs, successors, assigns, employees, agents, vendors, and other third parties. 

What types of disputes are covered?

All Claims.

Hyve and you agree to arbitrate any and all Claims.  The Parties each may exercise any lawful rights to seek provisional remedies or self-help, without waiving the right to arbitrate by doing so. 

Are you waiving rights?


You waive your rights to:

1. Have a jury resolve Claims.

2. Have a court resolve Claims.

3. Serve as a private attorney general or in a representative capacity.

4. Be in a class action.

Are you waiving class action rights?


Hyve and you each understand and agree that by requiring each other to resolve all disputes through individual arbitration, WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL.  ALL DISPUTES SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING.  The arbitrator(s) may not consolidate the claims of multiple parties unless all parties, including Hyve, agree in writing.


Only a court, and not an arbitrator, shall determine the validity, scope, and effect of this Arbitration Agreement.

What law applies?

The Federal Arbitration Act.

This Arbitration Agreement involves interstate commerce.  It shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 (“FAA”).  The Arbitrator may decide all issues relating to the merits of Claims, including among other things whether the governing law provisions in the Terms of Use are enforceable.

What is the first step in trying to resolve Claims?

Please write to Hyve.

Hyve wants to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case.  Before either Party is allowed to file a Claim, we each agree to try to resolve the dispute informally.  you may do this by emailing or writing to Hyve.  you understand that you need to describe the details of your Claim and how you would like Hyve to resolve it.  Hyve will try to resolve the dispute informally.  If a dispute is not resolved within fifteen (15) days of receipt of written notice, either you or Hyve may start arbitration.  To start arbitration, either Party may contact one of the arbitration groups listed below.  Settlement offers are confidential.  Neither you nor Hyve are allowed to disclose settlement offers to the arbitrator during arbitration.

How should you contact Hyve?

By mail or telephone.

Send mail to Hyve at support@letshyve.com.  Call Hyve at 1-877–566-6420.

Will this Arbitration Agreement continue to govern?

Yes, unless the class action waiver and class arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid or not enforceable.

This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of the Terms of Use.  It will survive your fulfillment or default of your obligations.  It will survive either Party’s bankruptcy or insolvency to the extent permitted by applicable law.  Notwithstanding anything else in the Terms of Use, if the class action waiver or class arbitration waiver is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be void.  If any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the rest of this Arbitration Agreement. 


How does arbitration start?

Mailing a notice.

After trying to resolve Claims informally, either Party may mail the other a request to arbitrate.  The notice should describe the Claims and relief sought.  The receiving Party must mail a response within thirty (30) days.  If you mail the request to arbitrate, you may choose between the arbitration providers listed below.  If related third parties or Hyve mails the request to arbitrate, you must respond in thirty (30) days.  My response must choose between the arbitration providers listed below.  If it does not, Hyve may choose the arbitration provider.

Who arbitrates?

AAA, JAMS, or an arbitrator we both agree to.

Arbitrations shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or JAMS pursuant to the applicable AAA or JAMS consumer rules in effect when the arbitration is initiated.  You may obtain information about arbitration and fees from AAA by calling 800-778-7879 or visiting www.adr.org or from JAMS by calling 800-352-5267 or visiting www.jamsadr.com.  If AAA and JAMS are unable or unwilling to arbitrate a dispute, then the dispute may be referred to any other arbitration organization or arbitrator the Parties agree upon in writing.  If the Parties cannot agree on another arbitration organization or arbitrator, then an arbitrator may be appointed by a court pursuant to Section 5 of the FAA.

Will the hearing be held nearby?


For your convenience, the arbitration hearing will take place remotely via the applicable virtual hearing processes of the AAA or JAMS.  If for some reason a virtual hearing is unavailable through either AAA or JAMS, the arbitration hearing will be held in the state of New York.  

Will Hyve advance arbitration fees?


The Party filing the arbitration is expected to cover the filing fee, and the Parties will split all other arbitration fees and costs (e.g., the hearing fee and the fees charged by the arbitrator).  Each Party will pay its own attorneys’ fees and expenses. 

Are damages and attorney fees possible?

Yes, if allowed.

The arbitrator may award the same damages as a court.  This includes statutory, punitive, or treble damages if allowed by state or federal law.  Arbitrators may award reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses if allowed by state or federal law.  A Party may not recover its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator decides that the other Party’s Claim is frivolous and the arbitration rules allow it. 

Is injunctive relief possible?

Yes, but only between the Parties.

The arbitrator may award injunctive relief in favor of the individual Party seeking relief, but not in favor of others.  The arbitrator may not award class, representative, or public injunctive relief.

If a court decides that these limits on public injunctive relief are not enforceable, then after any and all appeals from that decision have been exhausted, the Claim for public injunctive relief must be severed from the arbitration.  The Claim for public injunctive relief may then be brought in court after arbitration of the remaining Claims is completed. 

Can an award be explained?


Either Party may request that the arbitrator explain his or her decision in writing, if such a request is made within fourteen (14) days of the decision.  The Party requesting a written explanation is responsible for paying any additional fees required due to such request.

Can an award be enforced?


Either Party may seek to confirm, vacate, modify, or correct an arbitration award, in accordance with Sections 9-11 of the FAA, in the United States District Court for the federal judicial district where you live.
