Effective as of: February 6th, 2019
The SpotterEDU App is an app that may be utilized by a university, college, learning institution, or other sponsoring organization with whom SpotterEDU has an agreement (each, an "Institution") to help monitor and record your ingress and egress from classroom locations at the Institution. Your use of the SpotterEDU App is optional. You cannot use the SpotterEDU App without first securing login credentials from an Institution and, even if you are given login credentials, there is no guarantee that every class or other attendance based session you attend at the Institution will utilize the SpotterEDU app for monitoring and recording class attendance. If you have not been provided login credentials from an Institution, you must not use the SpotterEDU App.

Governing Law. THESE TERMS AND THE INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS WILL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES AND WILL SPECIFICALLY NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTIONS ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, IF OTHERWISE APPLICABLE.
Dispute Resolution/Class-Action Waiver/Arbitration. BOTH YOU AND SPOTTEREDU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. BOTH YOU AND SPOTTEREDU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION RELATED ANY DISPUTE THAT IS BROUGHT BY ANYONE ELSE. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THE JAMS (DEFINED BELOW) RULES TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY OR ANY JURISDICTION TO HEAR THE ARBITRATION AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN, OR OTHERWISE COMBINE THE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT PERSONS INTO ONE PROCEEDING.
You and SpotterEDU each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, SpotterEDU will be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Cook County, Illinois and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Program will be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. ("JAMS") or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a "Demand for Arbitration", then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service who will hear the case. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Chicago, IL, New York City, NY, Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA or Dallas, TX (whichever is closest to your residence) or in your hometown, but only if JAMS rules so require. The federal or state law that applies to these Terms will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions or class arbitrations; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Cook County, Illinois. SpotterEDU agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs incurred by you to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In no event will you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief or to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of the SpotterEDU App.
Modifications. SpotterEDU reserves the right to modify or add to these Terms as described in this section ("Updated Terms"). You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by making them available via the SpotterEDU App, and that your use of the SpotterEDU App after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms before using the SpotterEDU App. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the SpotterEDU App from that point forward.
Special Terms for Apple iOS Users. Notwithstanding any other provision within these Terms, the following additional terms are applicable to those using the SpotterEDU App on Apple’s iOS platform: You understand that these Terms are between you and us only, and not with Apple. SpotterEDU, not Apple, is solely responsible for the SpotterEDU App and there content thereof. You further understand that the SpotterEDU App may not be used in any manner inconsistent with the Apple App Store Terms of Service as of the Effective Date. You are granted a license to use the SpotterEDU App on any iOS device that you own or control and as permitted by the "Usage Rules" set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service. We are solely responsible for providing maintenance and support for the SpotterEDU App, as specified in these terms or as required under applicable law. You understand that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the SpotterEDU App. We are solely responsible for any warranties, whether express or implied by law, to the extent not effectively disclaimed. In the event of any failure of the SpotterEDU App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for such SpotterEDU App to you (if any); and that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the SpotterEDU App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of us. We, not Apple, are responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the SpotterEDU App or your possession and/or use of the SpotterEDU App, including, but not limited to: (i) product-liability claims; (ii) any claim that the SpotterEDU App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. Our liability is limited so far as permitted by applicable law. In the event of any third-party claim that the SpotterEDU App or your possession and use of such SpotterEDU App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, we, not Apple, are solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim. You and we acknowledge and agree that Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Terms against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the SpotterEDU App, please contact SpotterEDU as described below.
Miscellaneous. The failure of SpotterEDU to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit SpotterEDU’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by SpotterEDU of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of SpotterEDU. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. SpotterEDU may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. These Terms may not be assigned by you without SpotterEDU’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms will be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The Section titles are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against SpotterEDU by virtue of SpotterEDU having drafted them.
SpotterEDU will not be liable to you or be deemed to be in breach of its obligations under these Terms for any delay or failure in performance caused by acts beyond SpotterEDU’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, war, terrorism, accidents, fires, floods, hurricane, tornado, severe weather, strikes, labor disputes, mechanical breakdown, shortages or delays in obtaining supplies, materials, labor, or transportation, interruption of utility services or the Internet, acts of any unit of government or any governmental agency, or any similar or dissimilar cause.
