THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM.
1. DESCRIPTION AND USE OF SERVICES
We provide end-to-end professional education in the accounting, finance and healthcare sections. We provide some of our Services to you on a subscription basis (“Subscription”).
We provide Visitors with access to the Websites, and Registered Users with access to the Services as described below.
Visitors. Visitors, as the term implies, are people who do not register with us, but want to explore the Websites. No login is required for Visitors. Visitors can: (i) view all publicly-available content on the Websites; and (ii) e-mail us.
Registered Users. Login is required for all Registered Users. Registered Users can do all things that Visitors can do, and can also use the Platform and the Services.
We are under no obligation to accept any individual as a Registered User, and may accept or reject any registration in our sole and complete discretion.
2. LICENSE TO USE THE APP
3. TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR OUR STREAMING SERVICES
ii. Individual Streaming. Allows a single Subscriber to watch streaming videos through the Streaming Services. If you are purchasing the video for use by more than one person you will need to purchase videos with a group license (see Section iii). Access to the videos may be terminated if Subscriber is found to be in violation of these terms and conditions, or upon the termination of the Streaming Services.
a. Video Stream Purchases. Allows a single Subscriber to add streaming videos to their account with no further commitment. Videos added this way remain in the Subscriber’s account indefinitely.
b. Video Stream Memberships. Allows a single Subscriber to access multiple streaming videos through the Streaming Services. Subscribers’ credit cards will be automatically charged at the beginning of each membership cycle.
1. Choice Plan. Allows a single Subscriber to access a personalized selection of streaming videos through the Streaming Services. Choice Plan Subscribers are allowed to add two streaming videos from the Streaming Services to their account every 30 days. Videos added through the Choice Plan will remain in the Subscriber’s account as long as the Subscriber continues to subscribe to the Choice Plan (e.g. after three months on the program a Subscriber will have six videos in their account).
2. Unlimited Plan. Allows a single Subscriber to access the entire video library that is made available through the Streaming Services. Access to the full library will continue as long as the membership is active.
iii. Group Streaming. Allows one Subscriber, and all Users under the Subscribers account, to watch streaming videos through the Streaming Services. All persons viewing the Streaming Services Content in a group setting (such as a classroom) must be authorized Users. Group license streaming videos can be purchased individually or as a collection and will last for the amount of time indicated on the Subscription. The price of a group license is based on the number of Users connected to the license. We monitor Subscriber/User usage levels and reserve the right to terminate access to Subscribers who, in our sole opinion, have more Users accessing the Streaming Services Content than are allowed. It is the responsibility of the Subscriber to notify us if the number of Users associated with their account changes.
iv. Permitted and Prohibited Uses.
a. Downloading of Streaming Services Content. Subscriber/Users may download the instructor manuals for any videos included in their Subscription. Such downloading shall be for Subscriber/User convenience only, and Subscriber/Users may not (1) systematically download any of the Streaming Services Content, (2) create distribution “libraries”, or (3) transfer, sell, rent, display, or exhibit any of the Streaming Services Content to any third party who is not also a Subscriber/User.
b. Dissemination of Streaming Services Content. In the course of using any Streaming Services Content as permitted hereunder, Subscriber and/or its Users may not make the Streaming Services Content, or any part thereof, available to any party who is not a Subscriber or a User.
c. Prohibited Uses. Except as expressly set forth herein, neither Subscriber nor the Users may (i) copy, reproduce, alter, modify, transmit, perform, create derivative works of, publish, sub-license, distribute, or circulate the Streaming Services Content, or any portion thereof; (ii) disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer the Streaming Services Content or any portion thereof, or use a robot, spider, or any similar device to copy or catalog the Streaming Services Content or any portion thereof; (iii) take any actions, whether intentional or unintentional, that may circumvent, disable, damage or impair the Streaming Services Content’s control or security systems, nor allow or assist a third party to do so; or (iv) use the Streaming Services Content in a manner that disparages the Streaming Services Content or us, or in any manner that we may, in its sole discretion, deem inappropriate.
v. Compatible Devices. In order to be able to stream or download the Streaming Services Content from the Streaming Services and to view Streaming Services Content through the Streaming Services, you will need to use a personal computer, portable media player, or other device that meets the system and compatibility requirements that we establish from time to time and is otherwise capable of interacting with the Streaming Services (each such device, a “Compatible Device”). We may change the requirements for Compatible Devices from time to time and, in some cases, whether a device is (or remains) a Compatible Device may depend on software or systems provided or maintained by the device manufacturer or other third parties. As a result, devices that are Compatible Devices at one time may cease to be Compatible Devices in the future.
vi. Video Quality. When you stream the Streaming Services Content, the resolution and quality of the Streaming Services Content you receive will depend on a number of factors, including the type of Compatible Device on which you are streaming the Streaming Services Content and your bandwidth, which may go up and down over the course of your viewing. If we detect that the Streaming Services Content we are streaming to you may be interrupted or may otherwise not play properly due to bandwidth constraints or other factors, we may decrease the resolution and file size of the Streaming Services Content we stream to you in an effort to provide an uninterrupted viewing experience. While we strive to provide you a high quality viewing experience, we make no guarantee as to the resolution or quality of the Streaming Services Content you will receive when streaming.

Reporting Claims of Copyright Infringement
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and attempt to comply with all relevant laws. We will review all claims of copyright infringement received and remove any content deemed to have been posted or distributed in violation of any such laws. Our designated agent under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “Act”) for the receipt of any Notification of Claimed Infringement which may be given under that Act is as follows:
Knowfully Learning Group
201 N. King of Prussia Rd
Radnor, PA, 19087
Attn: Copyright Agent
If you believe that your work has been copied on any of the Website and/or the App in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our agent with notice in accordance with the requirements of the Act, including (i) a description of the copyrighted work that has been infringed and the specific location on the Website and/or the App where such work is located; (ii) a description of the location of the original or an authorized copy of the copyrighted work; (iii) your address, telephone number and e-mail address; (iv) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; (v) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf; and (vi) an electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest.
If you believe that material you posted on any of the Website and/or the App was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification with us (a “Counter-Notice”) by submitting written notification to our copyright agent (identified above).
Pursuant to the Act, the Counter-Notice must include substantially the following: (i) your physical or electronic signature; (ii) an identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled; (iii) adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number, and, if available, email address); (iv) a statement under penalty of perjury by you that you have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (v) a statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Website and/or the App may be found) and that you will accept service from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Website with the complaint at issue.
The Act allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter-Notice.
Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Website and/or the App was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) under Section 512(f) of the Act.
20. BINDING ARBITRATION
In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement or any other products or services provided by us (each, a “Dispute”), such dispute will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. As set forth in Section 21 below, nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests.
21. CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
22. EQUITABLE RELIEF
You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of Pennsylvania for purposes of any such action by us.
23. CONTROLLING LAW; EXCLUSIVE FORUM
The Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Pennsylvania without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The Parties hereby consent and agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the State of Pennsylvania for all suits, actions, or proceedings directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and waive any and all objections to such courts, including but not limited to, objections based on improper venue or inconvenient forum, and each party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any suits, actions, or proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement.
If the Agreement is terminated in accordance with the termination provision in Section 17 above, such termination shall not affect the validity of the following provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect: “Intellectual Property,” “User Generated Content,” “Feedback,” “No Warranties; Limitation of Liability,” “Indemnification,” “Compliance with Applicable Laws,” “Termination of the Agreement,” “Controlling Law; Exclusive Forum,” and “Miscellaneous.”
Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, the Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
