Also, we may refuse to grant you a user name that impersonates someone else, is protected by trademark or other proprietary right law, or is vulgar or otherwise offensive.
4. Paid Services
While it is our mission to provide users with as many content choices as possible, sometimes that involves giving users the choice of paying a fee in order to access Content that Provider would not otherwise be able to make available without charging a fee. In addition, certain Services will be offered in the form of courses, which require users to enroll and pay fees. Accordingly, access to certain Content may require payment of an enrollment fee or a subscription fee (“Paid Services”).
You agree to pay the enrollment fees, subscription fees and any other fees for additional Services you may purchase and any applicable taxes in connection with your use of Paid Services at the rates in effect when the charges are incurred. If your enrollment or subscription includes access to areas containing what Provider in its sole discretion determines to be premium content or services, your access to such areas may be subject to additional fees, terms and conditions, which will be separately disclosed in such areas. Enrollment and subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your enrollment or subscription or of any renewal. Unless we state in writing otherwise, all fees and charges are nonrefundable. We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance. If you want to use a different credit card or there is a change in credit card validity or expiration date, or if you believe someone has accessed or used a Product or a Service using your user name and password without your authorization, you must contact Provider to alert us to the problem.
When a purchase is made, Provider will send you an email link to verify your email address. If you subsequently change email addresses, you acknowledge that it is your responsibility to change your email address at this Site. If you stop receiving the Content, it is your responsibility to contact Provider to investigate. You also pledge to do everything in your power to make sure that the emails can get through your company’s email filters.
You agree that your Paid Services account is for individual use only and your Paid Services account is limited to only one simultaneous stream at a time. You also agree that you are voluntarily choosing to purchase this Content and that Provider makes no promises that you will like the Content or agree with the Content.
5. Monthly Enrollment Payments and Automatic Subscription
With respect to Paid Services offered in the form of a course, you have the option of paying for a full term of enrollment fees up front. You also have the option of making a deposit toward enrollment fees in combination with subsequent monthly payments (“Monthly Enrollment Payments”). In addition, certain Paid Services are provided in the form of an automatic monthly membership subscription (“Automatic Subscription”). If Automatic Subscription applies to a particular Paid Service, this Site will specify that.
By providing a credit card or other payment method accepted by us (“Payment Method”) for your Monthly Enrollment Payments or Automatic Subscription, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly enrollment fee, monthly subscription fee, any other fees for additional Products or Services you may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with your use of this Site. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up for during registration or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by logging in on this Site. As used in these Terms, “bill,” “billing” or “billed” shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. If your Payment Method expires and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
The enrollment fee or subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your enrollment or subscription, or expiration of your free trial period, if any, whichever is earlier, and on each month thereafter unless and until you complete your enrollment, cancel your subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms.
We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your enrollment or subscription (each such month, a “Monthly Period”). In the event your enrollment or subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. You acknowledge that the amount billed each Monthly Period may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your course enrollment, your subscription plan, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts. We will not make changes to the enrollment fee or other charges for any Monthly Enrollment Payment unless there is a change to the Services being offered, and in such case, we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If we change the subscription fee or other charges for any Automatic Subscription from time to time, we will give you advance notice of these changes by email.
Your Monthly Enrollment Payments will continue on a monthly basis until you complete full payment of enrollment fees for your course or your Paid Service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. Your Automatic Subscription will continue in effect on a month-to-month basis unless and until you cancel your subscription, the account, or access to the Product or Service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each Monthly Period in order to avoid the next billing.
We will bill the monthly enrollment fee or subscription fee plus any applicable taxes to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).

12. Disputes and Jurisdiction
Resolving Disputes. Since we always prefer to find ways to satisfy you as quickly and efficiently as possible, we want to address your concerns without resorting to formal legal proceedings. Before filing a claim against Provider, you agree to try to resolve any dispute or claim relating to these Terms, your relationship with Provider or your access to or use of the Products and Services (“Dispute”) informally by contacting us at info@Sedona120School.org. We will also try to resolve Disputes informally by contacting you by email. If a Dispute is not resolved within 30 days of submission, you or Provider may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree to Arbitrate. You and Provider agree to resolve any and all Disputes through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under the “Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate” paragraph below. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would.
Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Provider will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
No Class Actions. You agree that you will only resolve Disputes with us on an individual basis, and will not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. You further agree not to participate in class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations.
No Jury Trial. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or Provider may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Sedona, Arizona or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Products or Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Jurisdiction. You agree that these Terms, as well as any and all claims arising from these Terms, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona, United States of America, without regard to any conflict or choice of law principles. The sole jurisdiction and venue for any litigation arising out of these Terms will be an appropriate federal or state court located in Arizona. These Terms will not be governed by the United Nations convention on contracts for the international sale of goods.
