Federal Truth in Lending Disclosure (Truth in Lending Act)
This section is intended to be compliant with the Truth in Lending Act and applicable regulations. The type of credit extended under the terms and conditions of this agreement and the Sales Agreement, separately executed by the Member, is intended to be a Closed-End Credit agreement as that term is used in Regulation Z (found in 12 CFR 1026). The Member is put on notice and agrees that all products purchased from SDM do not contain any added fees or interest charges to the cost of the goods sold. The Member will not pay more than the price reflected at the time of checkout, unless the Member misses required payments under the terms of the Sales Agreement, which is separately executed. Any fee for any unanticipated late payments will be specifically noted in the Sales Agreement and not considered as interest in accordance with federal law. A Member Sales Agreement will reflect:
- ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE (The cost of your credit as a yearly rate)
- FINANCE CHARGE (The dollar amount the credit will cost you as a yearly rate)
- AMOUNT FINANCED (The amount of credit provided to you on your behalf)
This amount will be found in your (the Member’s) Sales Agreement
- TOTAL OF PAYMENTS (The amount you will have paid after repayment is complete)
The total amount of your (the Member’s) purchase as reflected in the Sales Agreement. In cases where the Member’s employer limits payroll deductions to whole dollar amounts, your total amount of payments may be slightly more than the amount shown.
- NUMBER OF PAYMENTS
The number of payments you have selected, as found in your Sales Agreement (e.g., 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10)
- AMOUNT OF PAYMENTS
(The total dollar amount of your order) / (The number of payments you selected)
- FREQUENCY OF PAYMENTS
Depending on whether you have a lump sum payment using a pre-authorized check, credit card; or payroll allotments through weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly withdrawals based on your pay-cycle, payments will commence on your next scheduled draw or pay date or shortly thereafter.
- OTHER PROVISIONS
There is no credit life or disability insurance offered as part of this transaction. You are not giving a security interest in the goods being sold to you. There is no prepayment penalty and, therefore, no credit returned to you in consideration of prepaying the amount owed under the Sales Agreement.
Standing Between the Parties
Nothing in this agreement shall be construed to create an employer/employee relationship between the parties. Neither party may authorize, obligate, or contract on behalf of the other party. Each party to this agreement will be solely responsible for complying with any applicable federal, state, or local laws, including but not limited to the payment of any taxes.
Conflicts of Law
The parties agree to waive any conflicts of law and recognize that the agreement shall be governed by, and construed under, the laws of the State of Maryland, Howard County. Both parties consent to the jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts of the State of Maryland.

The parties agree that any arbitration under this clause shall be before a single arbitrator who shall also have the authority to award reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party.
Class Action Waiver
Member agrees not to bring, participate, or represent parties involving any dispute against SDM, or under the terms and conditions of this agreement, which will be brought before or arbitrated as a CLASS ACTION (including, without any limitation opting in or out of class actions). Member agrees not to bring any action or be a party to any actions against SDM, or under the terms of this agreement, as a private attorney general or other representative.

Each party to this agreement acknowledges that they have certain regulatory and contractual responsibilities. The failure of one party to this agreement to follow any applicable law, regulation, obligation, or mandate will not be imputed to the other party to this agreement. The party that fails to follow any applicable law, regulation, obligation, or mandate will indemnify and hold harmless the other party against any and all losses, obligations, costs, liabilities, damages, actions, suits, causes of action, claims, demands, settlements, judgments, or any other expenses, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, to the extent arising out of or resulting from the indemnifying party’s negligence or wrongful acts.
If a court of competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator finds any provision of this agreement to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the parties will reform that provision to the extent necessary to enforce it and preserve the parties’ original intent, failing which, it will be severed from this agreement with the balance of the agreement continuing in full force and effect.
Scope of Agreement
This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and neither party has relied on any oral representations in executing this agreement. Any amendments or alterations to this agreement must be dated, in writing, and signed by the parties.
Unless specifically agreed upon by the parties in writing, Member cannot assign, transfer, or subcontract any obligation under this agreement.
The failure of either party to this agreement to assert any right afforded under this agreement, or take any action to assert any rights under this agreement, shall not constitute a waiver of any such right, unless consented to by the party in writing.
Unless otherwise provided for in this agreement (see Membership Agreement and Form of Communication) all notices required under this agreement shall be sent by registered mail, return receipt requested, or by a nationally recognized carrier, such as FEDEX or the United Postal Service.
