The Services may further provide a platform for Users to create, upload and/or display content of their own creation, including audiovisual content, written works posted on message boards, chat and blogs, and other content, including, without limitation, videos, music, images and text (collectively, “User Content”, or together with “Teacher Content”, “Content”). You represent and warrant to Teachers1on1 that you wish to access, engage, interact, communicate with or otherwise be exposed to Teacher Services and Teacher Content and such content is in compliance with the community standards in your area and other applicable laws and regulations. You understand that when using or accessing the Platform or Services, you will be exposed to Teacher Content and User Content from various groups and individuals, and that Teachers1on1 is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, safety, or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Teacher Content or User Content. You further understand and acknowledge that you may be exposed to Teacher Content or User Content that is inaccurate, offensive, indecent and/or objectionable, and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against Teachers1on1 with respect thereto. Teachers1on1 does not endorse any Teacher Content or User Content. Any opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and Teachers1on1 expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with such Teacher Content or User Content. The views and opinions expressed in the Teacher Content and User Content are solely those of the account which provided such content and not those of the Platform. Teachers are independent contractors and are not endorsed, employed by, or agents of Teachers1on1. YOU FULLY ASSUME ALL RISK OF LOSS OR HARM ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES.
All of the provisions in this Section 6 shall apply with equal force to Teacher Content and User Content that includes advertorials, native advertising, or sponsorship (“Sponsored Content”). Without limitation, all of your representations, warranties, indemnification obligations, and other obligations under the Terms will apply equally to Sponsored Content as they would to any other content you submit. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your Sponsored Content complies with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning Endorsements and Testimonials (“FTC Guidelines”), including all required disclosures and disclaimers.
As with Teacher Content or User Content, Teachers1on1 assumes no liability for Sponsored Content Submitted by you or any other users of the Service, or for any product or service offered by or through Sponsored Content (“Sponsored Products and Services”). You shall be solely liable for Sponsored Content that you submit to the Service and all elements of it, including without limitation for Sponsored Products and Services and for any other consequences of transmission of Sponsored Content through the Service.
In addition to all other termination provisions set forth in the Terms, Teachers1on1 reserves the right, but does not undertake the obligation, to terminate immediately your access to the Service if you fail to make disclosures in any Sponsored Content You submit in accordance with the FTC Guidelines or as otherwise required by applicable law. Further, in the event that Sponsored Content submitted by you includes material or promotes products or services which, in Teachers1on1’s sole opinion, conflicts with or does not align with Teachers1on1’s business, community, ethical or other goals, then Teachers1on1 shall have the right (a) to require that You cease submission of the Sponsored Content and/or (b) immediately terminate your access to the Service.

13. User/Teacher Interactions and Disputes.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users and Teachers. You understand and agree that Teachers1on1 has no obligation to screen Users or Teachers; inquire into the background of Users or Teachers; or attempt to verify the statements of Users or Teachers. Teachers1on1 makes no representations or warranties as to the conduct of Users or Teachers. If you find other Users’ or Teachers’ information or content to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate and/or deceptive, you may report abuse by contacting customer support. With respect to interactions through the Platform, Teachers1on1 reserves the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users or Teachers and/or to terminate or block you and other Users or Teachers for violations of these Terms. Should you decide to communicate or interact with one or more Users or Teachers outside of the Platform, Teachers1on1 will be unable to assist with such interactions regardless of whether or not such interaction began on the platform. Please also use caution, common sense, and safety when using the Services to interact with other Users or Teachers. Teachers1on1 further reserves the right, but have no obligation, to conduct any credit, criminal, or other background checks using publicly available records, at any time, to confirm your compliance with these Terms.
In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other Users and/or Teachers, you hereby release us and Teachers1on1 affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, successors and assigns from any and all claims, demands, damages (actual and consequential), losses and liabilities of every kind or nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. 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 exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
14. User Fees.
Viewing Fees. Certain Services provided to Users are subject to content viewing fees (“Content Viewing Fees”). The Content Viewing Fees (e.g., periodic, pay-per-minute, pay-per-view, etc.) for each item of Content are specified to Users when they select specific Content for viewing and such fees may be different for different pieces of Content. Content may recur on a periodic basis or per interaction. All Content is subject to applicable Content Viewing Fees. To the extent such fees are recurring, this will be disclosed prior to purchase. By electing to view any Content, the User will be deemed to have agreed to pay the Content Viewing Fees applicable to such Content as posted on the Service at the time the User elects to view each item of Content. Content Viewing Fees shall be paid for using credits that Users purchase which may be redeemed solely for specified Services (“Credits”). Credits, as well as unused balances, may not be redeemed for cash and may not be returned or forfeited for a cash refund, except as may be required by applicable law. In addition, Credits and unused balances are not transferable.
Subscriptions and Renewals. If Users are afforded the opportunity to subscribe to receive certain Content by payment of a periodic subscription fee (“subscriptions”), rather than paying separately for each individual item of Content, then in order to provide continuous service, Teachers1on1 may automatically renew all subscriptions for the Services on the day such subscriptions expire. Such renewals shall be (i) for a period equivalent to the period of your initial subscription to the Services or a shorter period of time if specified, and (ii) in Teachers1on1’s discretion, at the then current price of the same or comparable Services then in effect. In addition, Teachers1on1 sometimes offers special promotions that have renewal periods of different duration than the initial subscription term. In all cases, if you do not wish for your subscription to renew automatically, please deactivate auto-renew under your profile settings.
Teachers1on1 reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access to any subscription-based part of the Service without notice upon rejection of any charges or if the bank or other entity that makes payment on your behalf (or its agent or affiliate) seeks return of payments previously made when Teachers1on1 believes You are liable for the charges. Teachers1on1 also reserves the right in its sole discretion to suspend or terminate your access to any subscription-based service if you are found, at the sole discretion of Teachers1on1, to be in breach of these Terms, or if You are suspended or banned, for any reason. In such event, any and all Credits in your account will be deemed forfeit. Should you access an account following a ban or while you are suspended from the Platform, such account will be subject to termination without warning and all Credits in such account will be deemed forfeit.
Authorization to Charge. Your non-termination or continued use of the Services reaffirms that Teachers1on1 is authorized to charge your chosen payment provider per the terms of the purchase at the time the purchase was made. Teachers1on1 may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive Teachers1on1’s right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to, or otherwise joined, the Services. Any change to such billing practice will be posted here and in the Billing Page in your account.
Transaction Fees. Teachers1on1 may use credit card processors or banks (domestic or internationally) to process your transactions. In some instances, banks or credit card processors may charge transaction or similar fees. Such fees are your responsibility. Before purchasing any Services, please check with your bank or credit card issuer for more information about its policies regarding transaction and similar fees.
Subject to any applicable additional terms and conditions, all purchases are final and non-refundable. And because Teachers1on1’s performance begins once you tap buy and Teachers1on1 gives you immediate access to your purchase, you waive any right you may have under EU or other local law to cancel your purchase once it’s completed or to get a refund. BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE THAT TEACHERS1ON1 IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON.
Teachers1on1 reserves the right to terminate or restrict your access to or use of the Services, without notice or liability, for any or no reason whatsoever. In addition, Teachers1on1 may terminate your Account and any subscription with us by sending notice to you at the e-mail address you provided upon registration. Upon termination of your Account, you will not be entitled to any refund of any unused Credits or other prepaid fees unless otherwise required by applicable law. All decisions regarding the termination of Accounts shall be made by us in Teachers1on1’s sole discretion. You will not create another account if Teachers1on1 has already disabled your account, unless you have Teachers1on1’s written permission to do so. Teachers1on1 is not required, and may be prohibited, from disclosing to you the reason for termination of your Account or subscription. You may terminate your Account and/or subscription with us at any time, and termination will be effective upon receipt of notice from you. TEACHERS1ON1 DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY AMOUNTS PREPAID BY YOU AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY REFUND FOR ANY UNUSED DAYS OF ANY PERIODIC SUBSCRIPTION TERM UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW.
Upon termination of your Account/subscription for any reason, these Terms shall survive termination in accordance with their respective terms.

Any award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH CLAIMS.

The prevailing party will be entitled to receive from the non-prevailing party its costs relating to the arbitration proceeding including but not limited to, the arbitrator’s fees, attorneys’ fees and costs, witness fees, transcription fees, etc. and sales and use taxes thereon, if any.
