Third Party Providers and Your Responsibilities
Company is not responsible for and makes no warranties, express or implied, as to the Third Party Providers’ products or services or their conduct related to your information.

The Company does not validate or investigate the licensing, certification or other requirements and qualifications of Third Party Providers. It is your responsibility to investigate the Third Party Providers you choose to interact with.
The Company makes no guarantees that the terms or rates for the products or services offered and made available by Third Party Providers are the optimal terms or rates accessible in a particular market. Market conditions, approval and qualification requirements may dictate the nature of the products or services offered to you. For example, in the case of any educational services, quotes and rates actually provided by Third Party Providers may be higher or lower depending on your individual financial profile, your geographic location and other factors. Accordingly, unless expressly stated in writing, nothing contained with respect to the Services shall constitute an offer or promise for a product or service.

Agreement to Pre-Arbitration Notification of Dispute
This Agreement provides for final, binding arbitration of all disputed claims (discussed immediately below). The Company and you agree, however, that it would be preferable to discuss and resolve any disputes before arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein are initiated. In the event of a dispute, you shall send an email message to the Company at email@example.com briefly summarizing the claim and the request for relief. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after the email is received, you may proceed to initiate arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein.
The laws of the State of California, and applicable federal law (including the Federal Arbitration Act), will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute relating thereto or to your use of the Services, without regard to its conflicts or choice of law rules.
Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
Any controversy, claim or dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement or your use of the Services shall be settled by arbitration using a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “Rules”). Unless a hearing is requested (which may be conducted by telephone), the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing, and the arbitrator will make an award based only on the documents. Under no circumstances shall any party be required to travel to participate in the arbitration.
If you decide to commence arbitration, the provider will require you to pay a filing fee based on the amount of the claim. The Company will reimburse you for any filing fees incurred in excess of $125 after arbitration is initiated, and you will be reimbursed the initial $125 fee if the arbitrator ultimately rules in your favor. This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall exclusively determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, make clearly erroneous factual findings, or abuse his or her discretion, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.
Both you and the Company waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else. Notwithstanding any provision in the Rules to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
Opting-Out of Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver by sending a notice within 30 days of using the Services to firstname.lastname@example.org that specifies (1) your name, (2) your mailing address, and (3) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver set forth herein. All other terms shall continue to apply, including the requirement to pre-dispute notification and mediation, and non-arbitrated claims or disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the use of any of the Services will be resolved exclusively in the state or federal courts in San Diego County, California with the parties consenting to such exclusive jurisdiction and venue.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Company and the Affiliated Parties from and against any and all claims, demands, obligations, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from or related to: (a) your use of the Services; (b) your use of or interaction with any Third Party Provider or other third party websites, software or other technology; and (c) your breach of this Agreement, applicable laws, or third party rights. Your indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the Services.
The Company may modify this Agreement at any time, and each such modification will be effective upon notice to you (including posting on the Site). All material modifications will apply prospectively only. It is therefore important that you review this Agreement regularly. You may also receive a copy of this Agreement by emailing us at email@example.com.
