SimpliTime may also deduct a transaction fee from the amounts paid by a User for access and use of your instructional content and/or services provided through the Website. You agree to pay to SimpliTime all fees (including any applicable taxes) for content or services purchased on or through SimpliTime.

You agree to provide SimpliTime updated information regarding your credit card and account upon SimpliTime’s request and any time the information earlier provided is no longer valid. For any amounts payable by SimpliTime to you (such as the amounts paid by a User for access and use of your instructional content after deduction by SimpliTime of its transaction fee), SimpliTime will pay such amounts to you through the payment method specified in your account.
11. User Submissions.
11.1 Generally. SimpliTime Services may allow you and other Users to submit, post, transmit, and share content with other Users, which may include, without limitation, informational materials, documents, forms, pictures, images, audiovisual works, and any user comments submitted by you and other Users on or through SimpliTime Services (collectively, “User Submissions”). User Submissions are provided to Users or displayed on or through the Website for informational purposes only and their content is not otherwise controlled or endorsed by SimpliTime. SimpliTime does not guarantee any accuracy or confidentiality with respect to any information contained in any User Submission, and strongly recommends that you think carefully about what you transmit, submit or post to or through SimpliTime Services. You understand that all information contained in User Submissions is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such User Submissions originated. This means that you, and not SimpliTime, are entirely responsible for all User Submissions that you upload, post, transmit, or otherwise make available through SimpliTime Services, as well as for any actions taken by SimpliTime or other Users as a result of such User Submissions.
11.2 Right to Remove or Edit User Submissions. SimpliTime makes no representations that it will publish or make any User Submission available on or through SimpliTime Services, and reserves the right (but has no obligation), in its sole discretion, to refuse to allow any User Submission on the Website, or to edit or remove any User Submission at any time with or without notice. Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, SimpliTime complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and will remove User Submissions from the Website upon receipt of a compliant takedown notice (see Section 20 below).
11.3 License Grant by You to SimpliTime. You retain all your ownership rights in your User Submissions, whether posted and/or uploaded by you or made available on or through SimpliTime Services by SimpliTime. By submitting your User Submissions to SimpliTime through SimpliTime Services, you hereby grant SimpliTime and its affiliates, sublicensees, partners, designees, and assignees of SimpliTime Services (collectively, the “SimpliTime Licensees”) a worldwide, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, reproduce (including by making mechanical reproductions), distribute, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit your User Submissions and derivatives thereof for any purpose whatsoever in connection with SimpliTime Services and SimpliTime’s (and its successors’) business, including, without limitation, for providing you with the services you have chosen consistent with the intended features of SimpliTime Services, for provision to all Users of certain services, features and/or contests available on or through SimpliTime Services, and for marketing, promoting, and/or redistributing part or all of SimpliTime Services (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any websites, social media networks or media channels now known or hereafter discovered or developed.

By submitting or distributing your User Submissions through SimpliTime Services, you hereby grant to other Users a non-exclusive license to access or otherwise use your User Submissions for personal, non-commercial use. The foregoing license granted by you terminates as to a specific User Submission once you remove or delete such User Submission from the Website, provided, however, that other Users’ rights to such User Submission arising out of distributions occurring on or prior to deletion of such User Submission from the Website survive any termination or expiration of the license granted in this Section 11.4.
11.5 User Submissions Representations and Warranties. You are solely responsible for your own User Submissions and the consequences of posting or publishing them. In connection with User Submissions, you affirm, represent, and warrant that: (i) you either own your User Submissions or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize SimpliTime to display or otherwise use your User Submissions under all patent, trademark, copyright, or other proprietary rights in and to your User Submissions in a manner consistent with the intended features of SimpliTime Services and these Terms, and to grant the rights and license set forth in Section 11.3, and (ii) your User Submissions, SimpliTime’s or any SimpliTime Licensee’s use of such User Submissions pursuant to these Terms, and SimpliTime’s or any of SimpliTime Licensee’s exercise of the license rights set forth in Section 11.3, do not and will not: (a) infringe, violate, or misappropriate any third-party right, including any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, moral right, privacy right, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary right; (b) violate any applicable law or regulation; or (c) require obtaining a license from or paying any fees and/or royalties by SimpliTime to any third party for the performance of any services you have chosen to be performed by SimpliTime or for the exercise of any rights granted in these Terms, unless you and SimpliTime otherwise agree.

You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to User Submissions that are inaccurate, misleading, offensive, indecent, or objectionable. You agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against SimpliTime with respect thereto. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
11.7 Feedback. If you provide SimpliTime with any comments, bug reports, feedback, or modifications proposed or suggested by you for SimpliTime Services (“Feedback”), SimpliTime shall have the right to use such Feedback at its discretion, including, but not limited to the incorporation of such suggested changes into SimpliTime Services. You hereby grant SimpliTime a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive license under all rights necessary to incorporate and use your Feedback for any purpose.
12.1 By SimpliTime. You agree that SimpliTime, in its sole discretion and for any or no reason, may terminate these Terms, any account you may have with SimpliTime or your use of SimpliTime Services, and remove and discard all or any part of any User Submissions uploaded by you, at any time. SimpliTime, in its sole discretion and at any time, may also discontinue providing access to SimpliTime Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of these Terms, your access to SimpliTime Services or any account you may have may be effected without prior notice, and you agree that SimpliTime will not be liable to you or any third party for any such termination except as described in these Terms. SimpliTime does not permit any fraudulent or illegal activities on or through SimpliTime Services and reserves the right to terminate access to SimpliTime Services and remove all content submitted by any persons who are found to be engaging in illegal activities.

14. User Interactions and Disagreements.
14.1 User Interactions. The SimpliTime Services allow you to correspond or otherwise interact with other Users. You acknowledge that such other Users are not affiliated with or controlled by SimpliTime or its affiliates, and SimpliTime cannot influence the instruction, information, content, materials or services provided by them. Your correspondence or interaction with other Users is solely between you and such other Users. SimpliTime’s sole function is as a marketplace and facilitator of transactions related to educational materials between interested parties who enter into such transactions on their own terms. YOU AGREE THAT SIMPLITIME AND ITS AFFILIATES WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF ANY INTERACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND OTHER USERS.

SimpliTime reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor disagreements between you and other Users. If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you irrevocably and forever release SimpliTime (and SimpliTime’s affiliates, officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

15. Disclaimers; No Warranties.
15.1 UNLESS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY STATED BY SIMPLITIME, SIMPLITIME SERVICES AND ANY CONTENT, SERVICES, OR FEATURES MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH SIMPLITIME SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW, SIMPLITIME AND ITS AFFILLIATES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, STATUTORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. UNLESS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY STATED BY SIMPLITIME, SIMPLITIME AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE OR THE RESULTS OF THE USE OF THE WEBSITE, SIMPLITIME SERVICES, OR ANY LINKED SITES, IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE.

15.3 CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
16. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless SimpliTime and its affiliates from any claims, losses, damages, liabilities, including attorney's fees, arising out of your use or misuse of SimpliTime Services, representations made to SimpliTime, its Users, and/or third parties, violation of these Terms, violation of the rights of any other person or entity, or any breach of the foregoing representations, warranties, and covenants. SimpliTime reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify SimpliTime, and you agree to cooperate with such defense of these claims.
17. Limitation of Liability and Damages.
17.1 Limitation of Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, WILL SIMPLITIME OR ITS AFFILIATES, CONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR THIRD-PARTY PARTNERS OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE USE OF SIMPLITIME SERVICES, INCLUDING THOSE THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE SIMPLITIME SERVICES OR ANY LINKED SITES, THE CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER INTERACTIONS WITH SIMPLITIME, EVEN IF SIMPLITIME OR A SIMPLITIME AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, SIMPLITIME'S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
17.2 Limitation of Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL SIMPLITIME’S OR ITS AFFILIATES’, CONTRACTORS’, EMPLOYEES’, AGENTS’, OR THIRD-PARTY PARTNERS’ OR SUPPLIERS’ LIABILITY TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF SIMPLITIME SERVICES OR YOUR INTERACTION WITH OTHER USERS (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU, IF ANY, FOR ANY ACCESS TO OR USE OF SIMPLITIME SERVICES OR ANY PART THEREOF, OR FIFTY DOLLARS, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.
17.3 Linked Sites. THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND DAMAGES ALSO APPLY WITH RESPECT TO DAMAGES INCURRED BY YOU BY REASON OF ANY CONTENT, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD OR PROVIDED on any LINKED sites or otherwise BY THIRD PARTIES OTHER THAN SIMPLITIME AND RECEIVED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR RECEIVED THROUGH ANY LINKED sites.
17.4 Basis of the Bargain. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SIMPLITIME HAS OFFERED ITS PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, SET ITS PRICES, AND ENTERED INTO THE TERMS IN RELIANCE UPON THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN, THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND SIMPLITIME, AND THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND SIMPLITIME. SIMPLITIME would not be able to provide the SIMPLITIME SERVICES to You on an economically reasonable basis without these limitations.
18. Notice. Except as explicitly stated otherwise, legal notices will be served, with respect to SimpliTime and SimpliTime Services, to firstname.lastname@example.org and, with respect to you, to the email address you provide to SimpliTime during the registration process. Notice will be deemed given 24 hours after email is sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, SimpliTime may give you legal notice by mail to the postal mailing address provided during the registration process, if any, or if no such mailing address was provided during the registration process, by posting on the Website. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing or posting, as applicable. You agree that all notices and other communications that SimpliTime provides to you electronically satisfies any legal requirement that such notice or communication be in writing.
19. Waiver. A provision of these Terms may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms will in no manner affect such party's right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms.
20. Digital Millennium Copyright Act Compliance. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof, and you believe that any content hosted on SimpliTime Services infringes your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing SimpliTime’s Designated Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C § 512(c)(3) for further detail):
(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on SimpliTime Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at SimpliTime Services;
(iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit SimpliTime to locate the material;
(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit SimpliTime to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;
(v) A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
SimpliTime's Designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement can be reached as follows:
Copyright Agent SimpliTime, Inc.
54 Coppergate Ln
Warwick, NY 10990
or by email at email@example.com
For the avoidance of doubt, only DMCA notices should go to SimpliTime’s Designated Copyright Agent. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support or other communications should be directed to SimpliTime customer service through firstname.lastname@example.org. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
21. Dispute Resolution
21.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving any disputes that arise between you and SimpliTime in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and SimpliTime agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with the Terms or your use of SimpliTime Services or any part thereof shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the Terms or SimpliTime Services, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of your account for SimpliTime Services. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, YOU AND SIMPLITIME ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
21.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding the contents of Section 21.1 above, you and SimpliTime agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either party’s right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
21.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and SimpliTime will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting SimpliTime.
Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that SimpliTime do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). SimpliTime's address for Notice is:
Copyright Agent SimpliTime, Inc.
54 Coppergate LN
Warwick, NY 10990
21.4 The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). You and SimpliTime agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if no such resolution is reached within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or SimpliTime may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or SimpliTime shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any; provided that if the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, SimpliTime shall pay you the greater of (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, and (ii) the greatest amount offered by SimpliTime in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award.
21.5 Fees. In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, SimpliTime will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in King County, Washington, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse SimpliTime for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the preceding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
21.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND SIMPLITIME AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and SimpliTime agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
21.7 Modifications. In the event that SimpliTime makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the SimpliTime's address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to SimpliTime's address for Notice, in which case your account with SimpliTime shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, shall survive.
21.8 Enforceability. If either Section 21.6 or the entirety of this Section 21 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 21 shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 22.1 below, shall govern any action arising out of or related to the Terms or your use of the Website and/or SimpliTime Services or any part thereof.
