Other miscellaneous legal information for you
In exchange for our allowing you to use this Website, you assume a number of legal obligations. Many have been described above. In addition, you agree:
- to provide true, accurate and complete information about yourself and to keep that information current; and
- to receive emails from us at any time and from time to time that may include updates and other news about theLearnia and may also include advertising for products or services that we believe may interest you. You may unsubscribe to such emails, but we may terminate your Account if you do; and
- to indemnify, release and hold us harmless as well as our officers, directors, agents, representatives and employees from any claim, liability, loss, expense or demand, including legal fees, related to your violation of these Terms or your access to or use of this Website (including any information, materials, products or services available through this Website).
If a dispute arises between you and us with respect to any of these Terms, or their application to your use of the Website or your account with theLearnia, or any services provided to you by theLearnia, then we and you will submit the dispute to mediation, using a commercial mediation service in New York, New York. There will be a single mediator. The mediation may be conducted, at the mediator’s option, in person, by conference call (audio only or video), or through correspondence of any kind designated by the mediator.
If such mediation fails to resolve the dispute within 30 calendar days after the day on which the mediator first hears both parties, then the dispute shall be submitted to arbitration. Either party may commence the arbitration. The arbitration will take place in New York, New York, and will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its International Commercial Arbitration Rules and the following additional rules:
(a) There will be a single arbitrator, appointed by the AAA. The arbitrator must be expert in on-line educational websites and their operation.
(b) Until the arbitrator’s award is made, the parties will share all AAA and arbitrator fees equally, and each party shall bear all his/her/its own costs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and fees charged by his/her/its own witnesses. However, the arbitrator’s award must order the losing party to pay to the prevailing party an amount equal to all the prevailing party’s costs incurred in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation the prevailing party’s share of the AAA and arbitrator fees and all the prevailing party’s witness fees and attorneys’ fees and costs.
(c) The provisions of this subparagraph (c) apply only if in an arbitration commenced under this Agreement there are both a claim and a counterclaim and if awards are made to both the claimant and to the counterclaimant. In that event, and if monetary awards are made in favor of both the claimant and the counterclaimant, then the arbitrator shall aggregate all costs, fees and expenses of the parties and shall apportion them between the parties in the ratio of the amount of the claimant’s award to the counterclaimant’s award. If either of the claimant’s award and the counterclaimant’s award contains an injunction or other non-monetary relief, or if both awards do, then the arbitrator shall aggregate all costs, fees and expenses of the parties and shall apportion an equal share to each party.
You and we expressly and irrevocably waive all rights to have any dispute adjudicated or reviewed by any court or tribunal other than the AAA as provided in these Terms.
You acknowledge that some failures of a User, like you, to conform to these Terms might cause us irreparable harm, and that in that circumstance we would have the right to obtain from the arbitrator an injunction against your continuation of the harmful activity.
In addition to obtaining and injunction as provided above, we would also have the right to recover from you all appropriate direct and consequential money damages for the prohibited activities.
The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding on both parties and may be entered and enforced as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Any such dispute must be brought to our attention within one year after the date on which the most recent event that gave rise to the dispute occurred. If it is not brought to our attention within such one-year period, it is permanently barred.
If anyone brings a claim against us related to your actions, content or information on theLearnia, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to such claim. Although we provide rules for User conduct, we do not control or direct Users' actions on theLearnia and are not responsible for the content or information that Users transmit or share on theLearnia. We are not responsible for any offensive, inappropriate, obscene, unlawful or otherwise objectionable content or information you may encounter on theLearnia. We are not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, or any user of theLearnia.
