AGE POLICY; PERMITTED USERS; COPPA
Although Classes are available to Students under the age of 18, Students under the age of 18 are not allowed to either register for a Class on the Service or otherwise transmit any information whatsoever through the Service. If a Student under the age of 18 wishes to register for a Class, that Student’s Parent must register on the Service and for that Class on that Student’s behalf. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a user under 18 years of age registered for a Class on the Service, we will promptly revoke that user’s access to the Service and the Class, and delete any personally identifiable information submitted by that user. Further, you represent and warrant that your use of the Service does not and will not conflict with any pre-existing obligation in conflict or in any way inconsistent with the provisions of these Terms.
The Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act ("COPPA") requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. As stated herein, Students under the age of 13 cannot register for a Class on the Service or otherwise transmit any information through the Service. However, in the event the Parent of a Student who is under the age of 13 registers such Student for an online Class, that parent must provide parental consent to have the Student participate in the online Class. Before registering the Student for the online Class, the Parent will be required to sign and return to DFE a COPPA Parental Consent Form. The COPPA Parental Consent Form will be provided to any Parent who attempts to register his or her child under 13 for an online Class (www.dreamformula.education/parental-consent-form).
OVERVIEW OF SERVICE
The Service fundamentally provides a platform that allows Students to register for Classes spanning a wide variety of subjects structured around on DFE’s personalized, collaborative, and state-of-the-art education model. Students who are 18 years old and older will be allowed to register for Classes directly through the Service. As described in Section 2 above, Students who are under the age of 18 will not be allowed to register for Classes on the Service, but such Students’ Parents may register them on their behalf. Prices and structure of the Class will depend on the size of the Class and the location (for example, in the Student’s home or online-based). To sign up for a Class, simply click on our “Classes” tab, where you’ll be able to browse our Class selection. Once you find the Class you want to register for, click on the particular Class, and then Click on the “Sign Up Now” link.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES; “AS IS”
WE ARE MAKING THE SERVICE AND CLASSES AVAILABLE “AS IS” AND, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR LOST DATA, REGARDLESS OF THE FORESEEABILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: ANY CLAIM RELATED TO PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE SERVICE; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY, OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO, YOUR RELIANCE ON INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICE; ANY LOSS OR UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF DATA; ANY HARM OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY, OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO, YOUR USE OF OR INTERACTION WITH ANY SERVICES OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE OR WITH ANY OTHER USERS WITH WHOM YOU CONNECT THROUGH THE SERVICE; AND ANY VIOLATIONS OF APPLICABLE LAWS, RULES, REGULATIONS, AND OTHER AGREEMENTS. THIS LIMITATION SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY OR FORM OF ACTION.
IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00).
THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND US.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES OR CAUSES OF ACTION, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
In the event that any third party brings a claim against us related to your actions, content, information, or any other use of the Service by you, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our agents harmless from and against any and all third party claims, losses, liability, damages, and/or costs (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) relating to such claim. We will notify you promptly of any such claim and will provide you with reasonable assistance, at your expense, in defending any such claim, provided, however, that our failure to so notify you shall not relieve you of your indemnity obligations, but instead shall reduce those obligations by the amount of damages or increased costs and expenses attributable to our failure to give notice. We reserve the right to approve counsel retained by you, to take control of the defense (at our expense) of any claim for which indemnity is required, and to participate in the defense of any claim (at our expense) for which indemnity is required. You may not settle any claim without our prior consent.
You agree to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy with DFE arising out of or relating to your use in any way of the Service or the Classes in the following manner. First, we both agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute informally by contacting each other by email (you can email us at email@example.com). Second, if the dispute is not resolved through informal resolution, we both agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute through mediation administered by JAMS, which shall take place in San Francisco County, California, USA, and the costs of which shall be divided equally between you and DFE. Third, if the dispute is not resolved through informal resolution and mediation, we both agree to participate in binding arbitration administered by JAMS, which shall take place in San Francisco County, California, USA.
Either you or we may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief without first engaging in the dispute resolution process described above.
We both agree that, in the event of arbitration, or in the event of a lawsuit as permitted by this Section or otherwise, the prevailing party shall be entitled to costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees). Arbitration pursuant to this Section shall be confidential, and neither you, nor DFE, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration clause to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general). If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
YOU AND DFE EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
Nothing contained in this Section shall limit our ability to take action related to your access to the Service as provided in these Terms.
GOVERNING LAW, VENUE, & PERSONAL JURISDICTION
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. In the event that a lawsuit is filed where permitted under the provisions above, or in the event that the provisions above are found not to apply to you or to a given dispute, we both agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California, USA. Both you and we consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
If, for whatever reason, any term or condition in these Terms is found unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. The failure to enforce any provision of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so later, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
DFE reserves the right to change these Terms from time to time, with or without notice to you. If you continue to use the Service, you consent to the new Terms. Any changes to these Terms will become effective on the “Effective Date” indicated above. If you continue to use the Service after the Effective Date, you consent to the new Terms.
