TERMS AND CONDITIONS

DISCLAIMER: Every J2 Logistics report is subject to our Terms and Conditions which impose significant limitations on your remedies against J2 Logistics in the event of a dispute relating to your order. Please read them carefully.

Every J2 Logistics Report and the information contained therein is based solely upon the lay observations and opinions of the individual or individuals who process your order and complete the report. None of these individuals are experts in any field, nor are they professional photographers. Your personal observations and opinions might differ from those contained in your J2 Logistics Report. The photographs contained in your report may differ from photographs that would be taken by a professional photographer.

We do not check ownership or title to any item or property. Your report should not be considered a recommendation that you should or should not bid on or purchase an item or property, nor should it be the sole basis upon which you might make any important decision. Unless we specifically agree in writing otherwise at the time you place your order, we do not perform appraisals or issue value opinions of any kind, and any such information contained in your J2 Logistics report should be not be relied upon for any purpose. We do not determine whether an item is authentic or fake.

The Inspector may ask the seller to demonstrate that the item is in basic working order (if applicable). The Inspector, however, is not an expert, and will not perform any tests. Only the most basic functions which the seller chooses to demonstrate will be observed. For example, a vehicle has many features and functions. We will not ask the seller to demonstrate each one. We will ask the seller to power-up the engine and, for example, turn on the headlights and activate the turn signals.

For purposes of this provision, “Affiliate” means any entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with Client If affiliate operates independently as a separate entity then they will need to have their own account. 

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

  • Confidential Information Defined. Pursuant to this Agreement, each party (“Disclosing Party”) may disclose or make available to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in physical form, non-public confidential or proprietary information concerning the Disclosing Party and its business, products and/or services, including, without limitation, its software; systems and technology; product and service specifications, methodologies and strategies; pricing; Inspection Reports; invoices; and trade secrets and other intellectual property (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) was rightfully in the possession of the Receiving Party prior to disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (ii) was or is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of the Confidential Information; (iii) is now or hereafter becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of disclosure by the Receiving Party in violation of this Agreement; or (iv) becomes available to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the Disclosing Party and such source is not, to the best of the Receiving Party’s knowledge, under any obligation to keep such information confidential.
  • Duty of Confidentiality. The Receiving Party agrees: (i) to keep confidential and hold in strict confidence the Confidential Information; (ii) to take all reasonable precautions to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information (which precautions shall be no less than those employed by the Receiving Party to preserve the confidentiality of its own confidential materials and information); (iii) that it will not, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, or in conjunction with a Required Disclosure, disclose any portion of the Confidential Information to any third party; (iv) not to copy or reproduce the Confidential Information, except as reasonably required for the purposes contemplated in this Agreement (in which case Receiving Party will ensure that any confidentiality or other proprietary rights notices on the Confidential Information are reproduced on all copies); (v) not to reverse engineer or disassemble any products, technology or tangible objects that utilize or contain such Confidential Information; and (vi) to return and/or destroy all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party upon request.
  • Required Disclosures. If the Receiving Party is requested in any judicial or administrative proceeding or by any governmental or regulatory authority (whether by depositions, interrogatories, requests for information or documents, subpoenas, civil investigative demands, or similar processes) or otherwise required by applicable Laws to disclose the Confidential Information (collectively, a “Required Disclosure”), the Receiving Party may make such disclosure, provided it uses reasonable efforts to give prompt written notice, as soon as practicable, to the Disclosing Party of such required disclosure so that Disclosing Party may seek an appropriate protective order. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, J2 Logistics shall not: (i) be restricted from disclosing to Applicants their Inspection Reports and file information in accordance with applicable laws, (ii) be restricted from disclosing Confidential Information to the extent necessary to perform its obligations under this Agreement, or (iii) be required to destroy, erase or return any Inspection Reports or related Applicant data in J2 Logistics files.
  1. No Offer. Nothing on this Site or related Mobile Applications shall be construed as an offer or promise to make any J2 Logistics service or product or the services or products of any third party available to you. By acquiring the self-reported information you enter and allowing the entry of your order, neither J2 Logistics nor associated third parties are attempting to sell services or products in any jurisdiction in which we or they are not authorized to do so.
  2. Right to Refuse Service or Cancel Order. We are not obligated to accept any order or request for an inspection or other services.  We reserve the right to refuse service or to cancel any order for any reason at any time. If we cancel an order for any reason other than your breach of this agreement, we will refund any payment you made.
  3. Order Fulfillment. We make every reasonable effort to issue your inspection report within the estimated timeframe quoted for your order, and most orders should be completed within that period. However, because our ability to do so is often dependent on a variety of factors such as, for example, order volume in the area, or difficulty in making arrangements to meet with a seller or other necessary party, we cannot guarantee that the inspection report will be completed and available to you within that time frame or within any specific time frame.
  4. Cancellation, Refund Policy. If you cancel your order and notify us via telephone at (301) 909-5572, or via email to [email protected], before the inspector has started to travel to the inspection site, we will refund the amount you paid minus a $25.00 cancellation fee.  Once an inspector has claimed an assignment a $45.00 cancellation fee applies. Once an inspector has started to travel to the inspection site, however, there are no refunds.
  5. No-Shows. If the inspector arrives at the inspection site and the seller or other parties who have agreed to meet us is not there or does not have the item or property available for the inspection, you will be charged a no-show fee equal to one-half of the total fee for the order.
  6. Use of subcontractors. We may, without notice, delegate, assign, or subcontract the inspection service to any person, entity, agent, independent contractor, or subcontractor.  J2 Logistics’s Inspectors are independent contractors, subcontractors of J2 Logistics, LLC.
  7. Authorized Communications. No person other than the person who places the order shall be entitled to issue instructions or in any way communicate with J2 Logistics regarding the order. In order to minimize the opportunity for miscommunication, you may not communicate directly, by any means, with your Inspector.
  8. Entry Upon Private Property. If fulfillment of your order requires us to enter upon private property, YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING THE CONSENT AND PERMISSION OF ALL LEGALLY NECESSARY PARTIES (OWNER, TENANT, ETC.) AND PROVIDING CONFIRMATION THEREOF TO US. You hereby indemnify and hold us harmless for any claims, liabilities, judgments, costs, expenses, or losses of any kind whatsoever we might suffer in connection with entry upon private property at your request in fulfillment of your order. You agree to provide written documentation of ownership or other rights if we so request.
  9. No Warranty. The Inspectors work very hard to make sure that the information they report to you is accurate and complete. However, there is no warranty as to the information in the report you receive. In addition, because we typically do not take possession of the item or property we have no control over substitutions or changes that could possibly occur after the inspection is made. We provide no warranty for any alterations, changes in condition, or damages to the property being inspected that occur subsequent to the inspection. J2 Logistics, LLC does not guarantee or warrant the condition or operation of any item or property upon delivery to you. You are also bound by the provisions of the Disclaimer found elsewhere on this website.
  10. Not Experts; No Authentication. Every J2 Logistics Report and the information contained therein is based solely upon the lay observations and opinions of the individual or individuals who process your order and complete the report. You understand that the person or persons that perform the J2 Logistics service for you are not experts in any field, and neither possess nor apply any special or specific skill, knowledge, or expertise to their observations and report.  Your personal observations and opinions might differ from those contained in your J2 Logistics Report. The photographs contained in your report may differ from photographs that would be taken by a professional photographer. We do not determine whether an item is authentic or fake. We do not perform appraisals or issue value opinions of any kind, and any such information contained in your J2 Logistics Report should be not be relied upon for any such purpose. The Inspector may ask the seller to demonstrate that the item is in basic working order (if you ordered that service). The Inspector, however, is not an expert, and will not perform any diagnostic tests. Only the most basic functions which the seller chooses to demonstrate will be observed. For example, a vehicle has many features and functions. Unless otherwise agreed by us in writing as a part of your order, we will not ask the seller to demonstrate each function or any specific feature.
  11. Scope of Order. J2 Logistics is under no obligation to report any facts, observations, information or events that are outside of the express scope of the order and which are not included in the services offered by us as described on this site or otherwise agreed to by us in writing.
  12. No Endorsement or Recommendation. Nothing contained in a report that we issue, or what we might say to you, constitutes a recommendation to bid or purchase or not to bid or purchase, or an endorsement or recommendation of any kind whatsoever.
  13. Scope of Auto and Other Vehicle Inspection Services. The type of information you will receive when you order an auto or other types of vehicle inspection report depends upon the type of inspection you request, and the types of inspections that we offer are listed and explained on this website.  J2 Logistics is under no obligation to provide any data or information in any form, report any facts, observations, or events that are outside of the express scope of the accepted order you place, or which are not included in the services offered by us as described on this website. 

While it is possible that the person who performs your inspection might happen to be, or once have been, a certified automotive technician, you understand that the person that performs the inspection service for you may not be so certified, or ever have been, and may not be an expert in any field, and neither possesses nor applies any special or specific skill, knowledge, or expertise to his or her observations. The observations made and reported to you reflect the inspector’s, or our, personal lay observations and opinions based upon the observations made by the inspector at the time the inspection was made, or by us when compiling the inspection report. The inspection will not be a safety inspection or a substitute for any safety, emissions, or other inspection required by law.  The inspector will not perform and diagnostic tests that would be performed by an automotive or other technician or mechanic. We do not determine whether a vehicle or any portion thereof is authentic or fake. We do not appraise or provide advice on the value of any vehicle. 

Our inspectors work very hard to make sure that the information they report to you is accurate and complete. However, there is no warranty as to the information in the report you receive.  Sometimes inspectors make mistakes. Factors beyond our control, such as weather conditions, cleanliness of the vehicle, lighting conditions, whether the car is wet or dry, and others may reduce the accuracy of the inspection and the clarity of photos and videos.  For example, such factors may cause the inspector to fail to detect repainting or bodywork issues. The inspector will not clean or disassemble the vehicle or take other steps to mitigate these factors. Unless you order a custom inspection, and request that the inspector look at the registration certificate, owner’s manual, or any maintenance records that are made available to the inspector at the time of the inspection, and we accept your custom order request and agree to do so in writing, the inspector will not be required to do so.  In addition, we have no control over substitutions or changes that could possibly occur after the inspection is made. We are not responsible for any alterations, changes in condition, or damages to the vehicle being inspected that occur subsequent to the inspection. J2 Logistics, LLC does not guarantee or warranty the condition or operation of any vehicle upon delivery to you. The inspection report is also subject to the provisions of the Disclaimer found elsewhere on this website. 

  1. Title and Liens. J2 LOGISTICS DOES NOT VERIFY, CHECK, CONFIRM, REPRESENT, WARRANT, OR GUARANTEE THAT THE SELLER OR PERSON IN POSSESSION AT THE TIME WE PERFORM THE INSPECTION HAS LEGAL TITLE, OWNERSHIP, OR LEGAL POSSESSION OF THE ITEM OR PROPERTY INVOLVED.  WE DO NOT CHECK FOR LIENS OR OTHER ENCUMBRANCES.
  2. Third-Party Links. This Site and related Mobile Applications might contain references or links to other websites owned or operated by third parties.

  3. Pass-through Expenses. The customer agrees to pay applicable reimbursable direct expenses incurred by inspectors as part of performing an inspection including but not limited to tolls, postage, and copy fees. Pass-through expenses shall be verified with a copy of a receipt from the inspector and billed at cost to the Customer.
  4. Travel Fees. A travel fee may be assessed in remote, hard to reach, or restricted access areas such as but not limited to Indian reservations, military bases, mountainous locations, islands, or locations with limited population densities.  Approval for any such fees shall require Customer approval or the order can be canceled.
  5. Multiple Trip Fees. A multiple trip fee may be assessed in instances in which, due to onsite contact conflicts or no-shows, a return trip is required.
  6. Sales and Other Taxes. You agree to pay all applicable sales, use, excise, or other taxes applicable to your order.

ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Please read this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It is part of your contract with J2 Logistics and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

  1. Informal Resolution. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by writing to our customer service department at [email protected] or J2 Logistics, Attn: Customer Service, 4500 Forbes Blvd., Suite 200, Lanham, MD 20706. In the unlikely event that our customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction, these terms govern dispute resolution between us.
  2. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes in connection with the Agreement or the use of any product or service provided by J2 Logistics that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and J2 Logistics, and to any of J2 Logistics’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Agreement.

33(a). Arbitration Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with this Arbitration Agreement (“Arbitration Rules”). The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Any hearing will be held in a location within one hundred (100) miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States (in which case hearing will be held in the capital of your country), and unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

33(b). Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and J2 Logistics, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and J2 Logistics.

33(c). Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and J2 Logistics in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND WEGOLOOK WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.

33(d). Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. In the event that this subparagraph is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes shall be resolved in a court located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

33(e). 30-Day Right to Opt-Out.
