- Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
You and BP each agree that any and all disputes or claims in any way relating to or concerning this Agreement or any BP products or services will be resolved by binding individual arbitration.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, and expressly includes claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 et seq., or any other statute, regulation, or legal or equitable theory. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus, you and BP hereby agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq. (“FAA”) applies to this agreement to arbitrate, and governs all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration. Unless you and we agree otherwise in writing, arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association using its Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time of filing of the arbitration (the “AAA’s Rules”). However, an arbitrator or arbitrators can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief (including any attorneys’ fees) as a court. The arbitration decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the FAA, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND BP ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.
THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF THE PROCEDURES OR RULES OF THE AAA WOULD. RATHER, YOU AND WE ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL, BILATERAL BASIS. FURTHER, AND UNLESS YOU AND BP AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIMS WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.
You and BP are each responsible for our respective costs relating to counsel, experts, and witnesses, as well as any other costs relating to the arbitration. BP, however, will pay for the arbitration administrative or filing fees, including the arbitrator and/or other AAA case management fees, for any claim seeking $75,000 or less, unless the claim is determined by the arbitrator to be frivolous. Otherwise, the AAA’s Rules regarding costs and payment apply.
This agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
If any term of this Section (Arbitration and Class Action Waiver) is to any extent illegal, otherwise invalid, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability; all other terms hereof shall remain in full force and effect; and, to the extent permitted and possible, the invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed replaced by a term that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of such invalid or unenforceable term. If application of this Severability provision should materially and adversely affect the economic substance of the transactions contemplated hereby, the Party adversely impacted shall be entitled to compensation for such adverse impact, provided the reason for the invalidity or unenforceability of a term is not due to serious misconduct by the Party seeking such compensation.
If the arbitration provision applies or you choose arbitration to resolve your disputes, then either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent at Suite 900, 30 S Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60606 to begin arbitration. The arbitration of all disputes will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is commenced. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration of all disputes will be conducted by a single arbitrator who shall be appointed by the AAA according to its rules. Upon filing of the arbitration demand, BP will pay or reimburse all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees.

If any term of this Agreement is to any extent illegal, otherwise invalid, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability; all other terms hereof shall remain in full force and effect; and, to the extent permitted and possible, the invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed replaced by a term that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of such invalid or unenforceable term.

(Effective as of September 2019)
BPme Rewards Program is a rewards program operated by BP which lets registered users earn rewards, including, without limitation, discounts on BP and Amoco fuel, and receive other promotion and offers (collectively, “Rewards”) by making qualifying purchases at participating BP and Amoco locations within the U.S. that participate in the BPme Rewards Program. Visit mybpstation.com/bpme-rewards for a full description of the BPme Rewards Program, including possible Rewards.
To be eligible to register in the BPme Rewards Program you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and have a residence in the United States, excluding residents of the State of California. If you are under the age of majority in your home jurisdiction, you may only use the BPme Rewards Program under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these BPme Rewards Program Terms. Rewards may only be used in the United States. BP may change these eligibility requirements at any time, with or without notice, and reserves the right to refuse membership to any applicant for any reason, in its sole discretion.
To fully register in the BPme Rewards Program you must (i) first download the BPme App (as defined below); (ii) in the BPme App, provide your first and last name, a valid email address, and valid phone number; and (iii) in the BPme App, accept these BPme Rewards Program Terms. You may also provision a valid credit card when you register and enroll in the BPme Rewards Program, however, you are not required to do so to register and enroll in the BPme Rewards Program. You represent that all information you provide during registration and throughout your participation in the BPme Rewards Program are true and accurate, and you agree to update such information, as necessary to maintain its truth and accuracy.
Immediately upon registration in BPme Rewards Program, members will receive $0.05 off per gallon of fuel purchased at participating BP and Amoco locations during the month of registration and the immediately following month (the “Registration Period”). During each month following the Registration Period, members will continue to receive $0.05 off per gallon of fuel purchased at participating BP and Amoco locations during each calendar month, provided members have spent a minimum of one hundred dollars ($100) on BP and/or Amoco fuel during the immediately previous month.
You will not receive Rewards for: any purchases excluded by law; the value of any discounts or coupons outside of the BPme Rewards Program; purchases that a particular BP or Amoco location rule ineligible for the BPme Rewards Program; or taxes on purchases.
All active Rewards will be automatically applied to the entirety of the next fuel purchase at participating BP and Amoco locations, provided the member makes such fuel purchase either through (i) a valid credit card provisioned in the BPme mobile wallet, (ii) a valid linked credit card at the pump or inside the store, or (iii) any other method expressly permitted by BP.
BP and other third parties may provide you with additional ways to receive additional Rewards through offers, promotions, and other programs. Such offers, promotions and programs may be subject to additional terms and conditions which shall be included in messaging to you regarding such offers, promotions and/or programs. All such available additional Rewards will be automatically applied to the entirety of the next fuel purchase at participating BP and Amoco locations, provided the member makes such fuel purchase either through (i) a valid linked credit card on the BPme App, (ii) a valid linked credit card at the pump or inside the store, or (iii) any other method expressly permitted by BP.
Payment Cards in the BPme Mobile Wallet
When you add a valid payment card to the BPme app upon registration and enrollment in the BPme Rewards Program, all fuel purchases made using these payment cards within the BPme app will qualify for BPme Rewards. A single valid payment card can be added to multiple BPme mobile wallets. BP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to decline any transaction with such card, or deactivate such card from your BPme mobile wallet, in the event BP believes there has been any fraudulent activity on such card or such card is reported lost or stolen.
Linked Payment Card
When you add a valid payment card to the BPme App upon registration and enrollment in the BPme Rewards Program, or if you already have a valid payment card registered in the BPme App, you will have the option to link that payment card to your BPme Rewards Program account. Qualified fuel purchases made through such payment card both through the BPme App and outside of the BPme App (e.g., at the pump, inside the store, etc.) will qualify for BPme Rewards and count toward the monthly one hundred dollars ($100) fuel spend threshold. A single payment card can only be linked to one (1) BPme Rewards Program account and all qualified purchases made through such linked payment card will apply only to the primary BPme Rewards Program account to which such card is linked. You may remove any card from being linked to your BPme Rewards Program account at any time, however, you will need a valid linked payment card to enjoy Rewards on fuel purchases made outside of the app. Should you remove a payment card from the BPme App, such card will automatically be unlinked from your BPme Rewards Program account.
BP Credit Card Holders
Should you add a valid BP Credit Card, BP Visa Credit Card or BP Visa Signature Credit Card (each a “BP Credit Card”) to your BPme mobile wallet or link your valid BP Credit Card to the BPme Rewards Program in the BPme App, applicable purchases made on the BP Credit Card shall qualify for both Rewards and any other reward programs available through the BP Credit Card which such purchases may apply, subject to all applicable BP Credit Card reward program terms and conditions which may be found at mybpstation.com/terms-and-conditions. Limit: one (1) BP Credit Card per BPme mobile wallet account.
BP is not responsible for any tax liability related to the BPme Rewards Program. Any disputes concerning the BPme Rewards Program will not affect your payment obligations for your fuel purchases. We are not responsible for any disputes among you or any authorized users relating to the BPme Rewards Program. Questions regarding the Program please call 1-800-333-3991
We reserve the right to approve, deny or revoke participation in the BPme Rewards Program to any individual for any reason whatsoever on an immediate basis and without prior notice. If we determine that you have registered more than one (1) BPme Rewards account to your name/business, we reserve the right to terminate these accounts without further notice.
Right to Change/Modify/Cancel
BP may cancel, modify, restrict, waive or terminate any of the BPme Rewards Program Terms, including but not limited to the rules for earning and redeeming Rewards and the expiration policy for Rewards, at any time, with or without prior notice, even though these changes may affect your ability to use any Rewards you have already earned. Your continued participation in the BPme Rewards Program constitutes your acceptance of any changes to the terms and conditions of the BPme Rewards Program. You are responsible for remaining knowledgeable of any changes that BP makes to the BPme Rewards Program and the BPme Rewards Program Terms. The most current version of these BPme Rewards Program Terms will be available on the website mybpstation.com/terms-and-conditions and will supersede all previous versions of these BPme Rewards Program Terms.
The BPme Rewards Program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as BP decides to terminate the BPme Rewards Program. BP may terminate the BPme Rewards Program at any time. BP will provide notice of termination via the email address you supplied at the time of registration. Upon termination, your ability to earn additional Rewards terminates immediately, and you will have to use any available Rewards remaining in your account prior to their expiration pursuant to the above-referenced expiration of Rewards. After that date, any remaining Rewards will be forfeited without compensation to you and without liability to BP.
Program Responsibility and Statement of Non-Reliance
BP makes no guarantees, warranties or representations of any kind concerning the BPme Rewards Program. You release BP and its affiliates and partners from liability regarding or connected to any earning, redemption and use of Rewards, including, without limitation, any Rewards that, after receipt, may be lost, stolen or destroyed.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION; MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN COURT, USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, AND DISCOVERY IS MORE LIMITED. ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISION (EXCEPT JURY TRIAL WAIVER) WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS OF ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS, IF YOU FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 12. OTHERWISE, YOU WILL BE BOUND TO SETTLE ANY DISPUTES YOU MAY HAVE WITH BP THROUGH THE FOLLOWING DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES.
YOU AND BP AGREE TO ARBITRATE – RATHER THAN LITIGATE IN COURT – any and all claims or disputes between us (including any parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, or agents of BP) that are connected to, arise out of, or in any way relate to these Terms, the BPme Rewards Program, BPme App or the Service. Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, you and BP may bring appropriate claims against each other in small claims court, if the claims fall within the small claims court's jurisdiction, or before the Federal Communications Commission, the relevant state public utilities commission, or any other federal, state, or local government agency authorized by law to hear the claims.
Opt Out: You may opt out of this dispute resolution provision (except for the jury trial waiver contained below) by notifying BP in writing of that intent within thirty (30) days after acceptance of these Terms by sending a letter stating that you are opting out of this dispute resolution provision to BP via U.S. mail to 28301 Ferry Road, Warrenville, Illinois 60555. Exercising this right, should you choose to do so, will not affect any of the terms of your agreement with BP. If you opt out of the dispute resolution provision, that opt out will remain in effect if BP modifies this section in the future.
Class Action Waiver: You and BP agree that all claims or disputes between you and BP will be arbitrated individually, and that there will be no class, representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration. If you or BP brings a claim in small claims court, the class action waiver will apply, and neither of us can bring a claim on a class or representative basis. Furthermore, neither you nor BP may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class action asserts claims that would fall within the scope of this arbitration agreement if they were directly asserted by you or BP. Both parties agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and that if this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court or arbitrator then the entire arbitration agreement set forth in this Section 12 will not apply to any claim or dispute between you and BP, except for the provisions waiving the right to jury trial. This class action waiver may not be severed from our arbitration agreement.
Arbitrator Authority: The arbitration between you and BP will be binding. In arbitration, there is no judge and no jury. Instead, our disputes will be resolved by an arbitrator, whose authority is governed by these Terms. You and BP agree that an arbitrator may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to these Terms. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs if a court would be authorized to do so, and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief if that relief is required or authorized by the applicable law, but that injunctive or declaratory relief may not extend beyond you and your dealings with BP. Review of arbitration decisions in the courts is very limited.
Arbitration Procedures: You and BP agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies. All arbitrations shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The AAA's rules are available on its website at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If the claim asserted in arbitration is for less than $75,000, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply. If the claim asserted is for $75,000 or more, the Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. If there is a conflict between the AAA's rules and this dispute resolution agreement, this dispute resolution agreement shall control. To initiate arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claims to BP via U.S. mail to 28301 Ferry Road, Warrenville, Illinois 60555. You must also comply with the AAA's rules regarding initiation of arbitration. BP will pay all filing fees and costs for commencement of an arbitration, but you will be responsible for your own attorneys’ fees and costs unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator pursuant to these Terms or applicable law. BP will not seek to recover its fees and costs from you in the arbitration, even if allowed under the law, unless your claim has been determined to be frivolous. If you are successful in the arbitration, BP will pay your reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. The arbitration will be held in a mutually convenient location.
Jury Trial Waiver: If for any reason this arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, or if you opt out of this dispute resolution agreement, you and BP expressly and knowingly WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. This means that a judge rather than a jury will decide disputes between you and BP if, for any reason, the arbitration agreement is not enforced.
