Verifying the Plate and Lot Number. You
are responsible for correctly entering the relevant Lot and license plate
number at the time of purchasing each monthly permit, which Lot is indicated on
the drop-down menu on the Website when purchasing a monthly permit. A permit is
valid only for the Lot or Lots for which it is purchased and only for the
calendar month for which it is purchased, regardless of when purchased. There
are no partial payments or refunds for partial months. (For example, a permit
purchased on September 10 is the same price as a permit purchased on September
is valid only through September 30th.) There is no proration for partial months. There are
no refunds for unused permits, provided, however, that refunds may be issued
for unused permits prior to the first day of the month for that permit provided
the user requests a refund in writing at least five (5) business days prior to
the first day of said month. The permit allows only the vehicle bearing the
requested license plate number and displaying the associated permit by hanging
it from the interior rear view mirror of the vehicle (or otherwise visibly
displaying it as provided in the registration form or otherwise) to use the
permit. However, an authorized user may change the license plate number for the
vehicle using the permit by accessing the Website and modifying the plate
information, but in no event shall a change in such plate number be permitted
more than once in 24 hours.
3.2. Restrictions, Signs and
Notices Take Precedence. You are
responsible for checking and verifying that you are parked in the Lot for which
a permit was purchased, as well as for any permanent or temporary parking
restrictions posted. All notices and signs or directions made by relevant
government authorities, traffic attendants or authorized persons (e.g., the
suspension of a parking space) shall take precedence over any information that
you receive from CPM if for any reason the information is inconsistent. Please
note that use of the Services does not guarantee you a parking space.
3.3. Compliance with Parking
Regulations. All applicable parking
regulations apply to you, and your use of the Services does not exempt you from
following such rules. When parking in a permit parking Lot, at all times a
valid license plate and a valid permit must be visibly displayed on the
vehicle, and the permit must be clearly visible from the outside of the vehicle
by hanging the permit from the interior rear view mirror of the vehicle or
otherwise displaying it in a readily visible manner clearly viewable from the
exterior of the vehicle. Failure to do so may result in a violation notice
being issued and your vehicle being towed or booted. CPM IS NOT RESPONSIBLE
FOR LOST, STOLEN OR MISPLACED PERMITS. CPM IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAYS IN
MAIL DELIVERY OR LOST MAIL. YOU SHOULD ALLOW TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS FOR MAILING

penalty notices, you acknowledge and agree that in such cases, CPM may provide
all or a portion of your information collected by CPM to the relevant
authorities. If you use the Services, CPM, upon the reasonable request of the
relevant authorities, may provide all or a portion of your information
collected by CPM to such authorities.
3.5. CPM IS NOT RESPONSIBLE
FOR PARKING FINES. CPM IS NOT

ACTIVATED AND DISPLAYED THE PERMIT FOR THE RELEVANT PARKING LOT BEFORE YOU
LEAVE ANY VEHICLE UNATTENDED. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FINE, TICKET, OR
PENALTY CHARGE ISSUED BY THE APPLICABLE AUTHORITIES.
3.6. Any misuse of a permit will be considered a breach of
the permit. Misuse includes, but is not limited to, allowing any third party to
use a permit. If you are in breach of the terms and conditions, we may without
notice, suspend parking privileges; terminate the parking permit agreement;
and/or, to the extent permitted by applicable law, tow or boot the vehicle at
3.7. The parking of unlicensed or uninsured vehicles, the
general storage of vehicles, and repair or maintenance of vehicles, including
car washing, is prohibited. Further, the parking of vehicles that in the
opinion of CPM post any kind of hazard or have hazardous contents is also
prohibited. Vehicles must not be parked in such a way as to block traffic lanes
or violate any laws or regulations.

parking space designations, traffic signs, fire lanes, height restrictions,
official notices, and other facility markings. All space is available on a
first-come, first-served basis.

to time, the space to be used by the permit holder. Fees are due regardless of
whether permit holder uses the space or not.
4. Paying for the Services
4.1. Credit Card
Authorization. Each time you purchase
the monthly permit you must access the web site and initiate an authorization
process that will validate the credit or debit card number, status, available
credit or funds and billing information to ensure that it matches what the bank
or card company has on file. Your bank or CPM may attempt to contact you for
additional information prior to authorizing the transaction amount. For credit
cards, once an authorization is received, you may notice a decrease in your
available credit line. Your bank may hold this dollar amount from your credit
line or available balance for a short period of time determined by the policy
of your bank before your transaction is fulfilled. For debit cards, your bank
may pre-authorize a charge to your deposit or checking account and place a
temporary hold on the funds before your transaction is fulfilled. If you are
the owner of the bank account or credit card, we recommend contacting your bank
or credit card company to learn about their authorization and authorization
4.2. Errors. We may correct the balance of your Account if we
believe that a clerical, billing or accounting error occurred. If you have
questions regarding your transaction history or any correction, or if you wish
to dispute any transaction or correction that has been applied to your Account,
please call CPM at 1-773-935-8532. Assuming you provide sufficient details, we
will review your claim and tell you what we find. We will correct any error
promptly after we finish our review. If we do not find any error, we will
explain what we found. We have no obligation to review or correct any billing error
unless you provide us sufficient notice for us to review your claim within
thirty (30) days of the date of the transaction in question.

firstname.lastname@example.org or at 1-773-935-8532 or by mail at the following
Mandatory Arbitration. For all
disputes arising out of or relating in any way to the Services, you must first
send a written description of your claim to CPM to allow us an opportunity to
resolve the dispute. You and CPM each agree to negotiate your claim in good

Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a
court. This arbitration clause shall survive termination of this Agreement.
Arbitration Procedures. The
individual arbitration of any dispute or claim arising out of or relating in
any way to the Services shall be conducted in accordance with the rules of the
American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's
Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement. The
AAA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available online at
www.adr.org. You agree that this Agreement evidences a transaction in
interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and
enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal
arbitration law, and not governed by state law. Any arbitration shall take
place in Chicago, Illinois, United States. The individual arbitration will be
conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may award on an individual
basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or
declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and
must follow and enforce this Agreement as a court would. Any arbitration shall
be confidential, and neither party may disclose the existence, content or
results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of
enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be
entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.
Costs. Each party will bear the fees
and expense of its own attorneys, experts, witnesses and preparation and
presentation of evidence at the arbitration. Each party will equally share all
filing, administration and arbitrator fees.
13.5. Class Action Waiver for
Arbitration. YOU AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDING IN ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED

Class Action Waiver and Jury Waiver in Litigation. You agree that, if the arbitration agreement
contained in Sections 13.2 through 13.5 is found to be unenforceable, any claim
or proceeding pursued in court will be conducted only on an individual basis
and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. You further agree
that if a claim or proceeding proceeds in court rather than through
arbitration, you and CPM each waive the right to a jury trial.
Governing Law. By using the Services,
you agree that the statutes and laws of the United States and the State of
Illinois without regard to conflicts of laws principles, will apply to all
matters relating to use of the Services. If we are unable to commence
arbitration, you agree that any litigation shall be subject to the exclusive
jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Cook County, Illinois, USA. The
United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods
(1980) is hereby excluded in its entirety from application to these Terms.
13.8. Time Limit for Filing
Claims. You agree that regardless of
any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of
or related to any use of the Services or any activity related to these Terms
must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or
be forever barred.
General 14.1. Export Control.
Software and other materials from the Services may be subject to United States
Export Control. The United States Export Control laws prohibit the export of
certain technical data and software to certain territories. No software from
the Services may be downloaded, exported, or re-exported in violation of any
such laws. CPM does not authorize the exportation of any software or technical
data from the Services to any jurisdiction prohibited by the United States
Export laws. You represent and warrant that you are not listed on any U.S.
Government “watch list” of prohibited or restricted parties, including the
Specially Designated Nationals list published by the Office of Foreign Assets
Control of the U.S. Treasury or the Denied Persons List published by the U.S.
Department of Commerce. Further, the Services may not be exported or
re-exported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries or (b) to anyone on the U.S.
Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S.
Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List. By using the
Services, you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such
country or on any such list. You also agree that you will not use the Services
for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without
limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of nuclear,
missiles, or chemical or biological weapons.
Assignment. CPM may assign these
Terms in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. You may
not assign this contract, or any part of it, to any other person. Any attempt
by you to do so is void. You may not transfer to anyone else, either temporarily
or permanently, any rights to use any part of the Services. To the extent that
you allow a third party to use your device, you shall remain solely responsible
for the use of the Services by others using the device.
No Partnership. Both you and CPM acknowledge
and agree that no partnership is formed between you and CPM.
14.4. Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between
you and CPM governing your use of the Services, superseding any prior
agreements between you and CPM relating to your use of the Services. You may
also be subject to additional terms and conditions (including, but not limited
to, terms and conditions from your wireless carrier or operator) that may apply
to your use of
Services. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have
no legal or contractual effect.
Severability and Waiver. If any
provision of these Terms is held to be invalid by any law, rule, order or
regulation of any government or by the final determination of any state or
federal court, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other
provision of these Terms. The failure of CPM to exercise or enforce any right
or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or
Force Majeure. The failure of CPM to
comply with these Terms due to an act of God, pandemic, epidemic, public health
order, war, fire, riot, terrorism, earthquake, actions of federal, state or
local governmental authorities, delayed or lost mail or for any other reason
beyond the reasonable control of CPM, shall not be deemed a breach of these
Preferences. You consent to receive
communications about these Terms electronically through the email address
listed in your Account. CPM may use your mailing address to communicate with
you regarding the Services, including providing you with the permit for display
in the vehicle. CPM is not responsible for lost or delayed mail.
