If you had to agree to the new TOS, and if you want to opt-out of arbitration, then this template will help you do so.
Must be sent within 30 days of agreeing to new TOS.

What is the 'effective date' at the beginning of the entire TOS that you had to agree to?

Do you have more screenshots, specifically of the beginning of the arbitration section that you just posted?

I am curious how it affects or applies to drivers that have already accepted a previous TOS but did not opt-out of arbitration within 30 days.

Thanks!

What does opting out do for us exactly? Does it mean we will not have to agree to this new addendum? Im assuming it is better to opt out for our individual rights to sue, but what about class action lawsuits once we opt out. I would need to know my legal rights and what lyft has changed on this new agreement. I didnt opt out of of the first one when i signed up, but i think i will opt of this new one. Any thoughts or reasons why we should opt out? Also can it affect our account we will not recieve certain benefits and promotions from lyft as there were before? Thanks for this post its very helpful.

Opting out in layman's terms is the ability to "sue" without the company, corporation or whatever entity forcing you into arbitration, which always benefits the defendant. (You been the plaintiff)

I thought that we all already opted out when we accepted the class action money.....no? Ha anyone here gotten paid AND had to accept the new TOS? I didn't get one of those when they logged in.
Anytime TOS change you need to Opt-Out again if you so chose. It's a new ball game when a company changes their TOS.

I have read reports here on UP that some drivers have not had to agree to the new TOS, believe it will come around to everyone.
Im in sf i wonder why some have and others dont have to. Maybe it has something to do with the previous class action lawsuit that i got paid out i was forced to sign this new agreement though i think i will opt out on this one.
