If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Site.
To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site is in conflict or inconsistent with these Terms, the Terms shall control. Any express waiver or failure to exercise promptly any right under the Terms will not create a continuing waiver or any expectation of non-enforcement. If any provision of the Terms is held invalid by any law or regulation of any government, or by any court or arbitrator, the parties agree that such provision will be replaced with a new provision that accomplishes the original business purpose, and the other provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.

seeking tutoring services to connect with those seeking to provide tutoring

frequency, duration, and all aspects of the lessons. IF THE STUDENT IS

consent. We Succeed reserves the right, in its discretion, to remove any
Content if we believe it may infringe the copyright rights of others, and/or to
terminate the accounts of Users who we believe to be infringers.
If you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Site in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, we will respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA"), a federal law that provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.

The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow We Succeed to locate the content or material within the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the content or material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. We Succeed's agent for notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement can be reached as follows:
By email: email@example.com.

21. Release and Indemnification
This section explains the process of resolving any disputes between We Suceed and a Tutor; We Succeed and a Student; Tutor and Student; or We Succeed, a Tutor, and a Student. All disputes shall be resolved through arbitration instead of through the courts. Specifically:
Any controversy, claim, suit, dispute, injury
or damage arising from or in any way related to the Site, its use, its User
(e.g. Tutor, Student) conduct, or the Terms shall be settled by binding
arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American
Arbitration Association ("AAA") then in effect, which can be obtained at any
AAA office, at www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at 1-800- 778-7879. If there
is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this arbitration provision, the
terms of the arbitration provision will control unless the arbitrator
determines that the application of the inconsistent terms would result in a
fundamentally unfair arbitration. This arbitration provision will be construed
and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1 et
We Succeed and you will attempt to agree on a single arbitrator. If agreement is not possible, each party will select its own arbitrator. Each party's arbitrator will, in turn, confer and select a single arbitrator. The arbitrator will base the decision on the evidence presented and in accordance with these Terms and governing law, including statutory and judicial authority. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms and applicable law. The arbitrator will issue a written decision, which will contain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision is based. The arbitrator's decision will be final and binding upon all parties.
YOU AND WE SUCCEED AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS, SUIT, INJURY, HARM, LOSS OR DAMAGE AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE SUCCEED AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER WE SUCCEED USERS.
The arbitration shall be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances; and the judgment of the arbitration award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Each party will pay its own attorneys' fees, subject to any remedies to which that party may later be entitled under applicable law. You will bear only those costs of arbitration that you would have borne had you brought a claim covered by this arbitration provision in court. If you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, We Succeed will pay as much of the arbitration fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, disputes may be brought before an administrative agency to the extent applicable law requires access to an agency notwithstanding the existence of this arbitration provision. Nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed to: (i) relieve any party of the duty to exhaust administrative remedies by filing a charge or complaint with an administrative agency and obtaining a right to sue notice, where otherwise required by law; or (ii) prevent either party from cooperating with a federal or state body as required by law. However, you understand that you are not entitled to a double recovery or eligible to receive any monetary benefit from any action brought by an administrative agency except as required by law.
To commence an arbitration against We Succeed, you must complete a short form, submit it to the AAA, and email a copy to We Succeed, Inc. to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, see the AAA's claim filing page. You may represent yourself in the arbitration or be represented by an attorney or another representative. Once we receive your arbitration claim, we may assert any counterclaims we may have against you.
In the event that a tribunal or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction determines that the arbitration provision is unenforceable, you agree that the exclusive forum and/or venue for any controversy, claim, suit, injury, harm, loss or damage arising from or in any way related to the use, inability to use or provision of these Terms shall be any California State Court or Federal Court sitting in Riverside County, and you hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts for purposes of any such proceeding. You hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts for purposes of any such proceeding and agree not to seek to transfer the matter to a different court for any reason. You and We Succeed agree that any dispute is personal to you and We Succeed and that any such controversy, claim, suit, injury, harm, loss or damage shall be brought on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated with any controversy, claim, suit, injury, harm, loss or damage of any other party. However, this representative action waiver may be severed if it would otherwise render these Terms unenforceable.
You agree that any material breach of the Terms will result in irreparable harm to We Succeed for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and, therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, We Succeed will be entitled to equitable relief, including both a preliminary and permanent injunction, if such a breach occurs. You waive any requirement for the posting of a bond or other security if We Succeed seeks such an injunction.
