H. Export Control.
Your use of the Services, including our software, is subject to export and re-export control laws and regulations, including the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) maintained by the United States Department of Commerce and sanctions programs maintained by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. You shall not – directly or indirectly – sell, export, re-export, transfer, divert, or otherwise dispose of any software or service to any end-user without obtaining the required authorizations from the appropriate government authorities. You also warrant that you are not prohibited from receiving US origin products, including services or software.
On the condition that you comply with all of your obligations under this Agreement, we grant you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive, nonassignable, nonsublicenseable license and right to access the Services, through a generally available web browser, mobile device or application (but not through scraping, spidering, crawling or other technology or software used to access data without the express written consent of 12twenty or its Users), view information and use the Services that we provide on 12twenty webpages and in accordance with this Agreement. Any other use of the Services contrary to our mission and purpose (such as seeking to contact someone you do not know or trust, or to use information gathered from 12twenty commercially unless expressly authorized by 12twenty) is strictly prohibited and a violation of this Agreement. We reserve all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement, including, without limitation, title, ownership, intellectual property rights, and all other rights and interest in the Services and all related items, including any and all copies made of the 12twenty website.
A. Ownership of the Services.
All right, title and interest in and to the Services and all technology related thereto, are proprietary to 12twenty and are protected by applicable intellectual property laws. Except with respect to the information you provide 12twenty under this Agreement, all content on the 12twenty website, including text, graphics, logos, icons, images and video clips, is the exclusive property of 12twenty or its content suppliers and is protected by applicable intellectual property laws. The compilation (meaning the collection, management and assembly) of all content on the 12twenty website is the exclusive property of 12twenty and also protected by applicable intellectual property laws. The content on the 12twenty website may be used as a resource solely for its intended purpose. Any other use, including the reproduction, modification, distribution, transmission, republication, display, or performance, of the content on the 12twenty website is strictly prohibited. Furthermore, you agree that you will not, nor will you allow or direct any third party (whether or not for your benefit), to reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, display, perform, publish, distribute, disseminate, broadcast, circulate or use any content on the 12twenty website without the express written consent of 12twenty. You acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights in or to the Services.
B. Services Availability.
For as long as 12twenty continues to offer the Services, 12twenty shall provide and seek to update, improve and expand the Services. As a result, we allow you to access the Services as they may exist and be available on any given day and have no other obligations, except as expressly stated in this Agreement. We may modify, replace, refuse access to, suspend or discontinue the Services, partially or entirely, or change and modify prices for all or part of the Services for you or for all our Users in our sole discretion. All of these changes shall be effective upon their posting on our site or by direct communication to you unless otherwise noted. 12twenty further reserves the right to withhold, remove and or discard any content available as part of your account, with or without notice if deemed by 12twenty to be contrary to this Agreement. For avoidance of doubt, 12twenty has no obligation to store, maintain or provide you a copy of any content that you or other Users provide when using the Services. Any information you submit to us is at your own risk of loss.
C. Third Party Sites and Developers.
12twenty is not responsible for and does not endorse any features, content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from Third Party Sites. Accordingly, if you decide to access Third Party Sites, you do so at your own risk, and you agree that this Agreement does not apply to your use of any Third Party Site.
Please note: If you allow a Third Party Site to authenticate to or connect with your 12twenty account, that application or website can access information related to you and your connections.
D. Disclosure of User Information.
You acknowledge, consent and agree that we may access, preserve, and disclose your registration and any other information you provide if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary in our opinion to: (1) comply with legal process, including, but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this Agreement; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties, whether or not the third party is a User, individual, or government agency; (4) respond to customer service inquiries; or (5) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of 12twenty, our Users or the public.
The purpose of the Agreement is for you to secure access to the Services. All fees set forth within and paid by you under the Agreement shall be considered solely in furtherance of this purpose. In no way are these fees paid considered payment for the sale, license, or use of any 12twenty software or associated documentation, separate from the Services made available by 12twenty under this Agreement. From time to time, we may charge fees for our Services. We may change the fees we charge for our Services and such changes are effective when we post the change on the corresponding purchase page on our website.
You agree to pay all charges at the amounts in effect when such charges are incurred. You must provide a valid credit, debit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other accepted issuer) or other specified payment or financial mechanism (“Payment Provider”) as a condition to making any payments. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit or debit card or other mechanism, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities.
12twenty’s fees are net of any applicable Sales Tax (defined below). If any Services, or payments for any Services, under this Agreement are subject to Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to 12twenty, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority and you will indemnify 12twenty for any liability or expense we may incur in connection with such Sales Tax. Upon our request, you will provide us with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” will mean any sales or use tax, and any other tax measured by sales proceeds, that 12twenty is permitted to pass on to its customers that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
E. Promo Codes.
We may, in our sole discretion, create discounts and promotional codes that may be redeemed for credit in your account, or other features or benefits, subject to any additional terms that we establish on a per promotional code basis (“Promo Codes”). Promo Codes may only be used once per person or entity unless otherwise specified in a specific offer. Only Promo Codes sent to you through official 12twenty communications channels are valid. You agree that Promo Codes: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold, or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public form or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by us; (iii) may be disabled by us at any time for any reason without liability to us; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that we establish for such Promo Code; (v) are not valid for cash; and (vi) may expire prior to your use.
Except as set forth on the corresponding 12twenty Employer FAQ page located at https://12twenty.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4413512205971-Employer-FAQ, all fees are non-refundable. For any billing questions, please contact our customer support department at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
G. Orders and Cancellations.
12twenty reserves the right at its discretion to cancel or reverse any payment, even if it has been previously confirmed by 12twenty, as a result of any mistake or error, including any mistaken pricing, description error, or other error. Although it is unlikely that 12twenty would refuse to accept an order, 12twenty reserves the right to deny any order for any reason, including where the following situations arise: (i) insufficient information or errors in billing, payment, and/or other information; (ii) orders that cannot be processed due to erroneous information that you have provided, which includes, but is not limited to incorrect credit card or debit card number, expiration date, security value, or other incorrect information regarding payment types; (iii) suspected fraudulent information; or (iv) unavailability of a Service due to discontinuance or otherwise.
H. Job Posting and Automatic Repost.
If you are an Employer User, you will be able to post job opportunities on the 12twenty Network to certain schools as part of the Service for a fee. Job opportunities will be posted for the period you select prior to initial posting (e.g., 30 days, 6 months, or such other period we make available) (“Application Cycle”). If the school you have selected to post your job opportunity does not reject the job posting within six (6) days of submission, it will be automatically approved and added to the school job board. Certain schools may elect not to post job opportunities through the Service, but rather, share the job opportunity through other channels, including via e-mail or an internal recruitment platform. In such event, those schools will not have the right to approve or reject the job posting. Following the initial Application Cycle, the job posting will be automatically reposted (or resent via notification, in the case of schools that do not post through the Service) on the 12twenty Network for additional Application Cycles, each for a period equivalent to your initial Application Cycle. You will receive a notification three (3) days prior to the expiration of the then-current Application Cycle for your job post to allow you to cancel the automatic repost or resend and manage your job posting. If you do not wish to have your job posting automatically repost or resent at the end of such Application Cycle, you must uncheck the box labeled “Automatically repost my job at the end of the application period” before submitting the initial job post or you must deactivate the job posting in the “Manage your Job Posting” area of your account prior to the expiration of the then-current Application Cycle. Otherwise, your job posting will continue to be reposted on the 12twenty Network (or resent, as applicable) for an indefinite number of Application Cycles until the job posting is deactivated. By posting a job opportunity on the Service and not opting out of automatic reposting, you authorize 12twenty to charge your Payment Provider upon submission of your job post, and again at the beginning of any subsequent Application Cycle for such job post until such time that you deactivate your job posting. Upon commencement of each subsequent Application Cycle for your job posting, if 12twenty does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, 12twenty will not automatically repost or resend the job posting.

B. DO NOT RELY ON THE 12TWENTY WEBSITE, ANY INFORMATION THEREIN, OR THE CONTINUATION OF THE SERVICES.

WE DO NOT PROVIDE ANY EXPRESS WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS.

D. 12TWENTY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES FOR THE DELIVERY OF ANY MESSAGES (SUCH AS POSTING OF ANSWERS OR TRANSMISSION OF ANY OTHER USER GENERATED CONTENT) SENT THROUGH 12TWENTY TO ANYONE. IN ADDITION, WE NEITHER WARRANT NOR REPRESENT THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES WILL NOT INFRINGE THE RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES. ANY MATERIAL, SERVICE, OR TECHNOLOGY DESCRIBED OR USED AS PART OF THE SERVICES MAY BE SUBJECT TO INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OWNED BY THIRD PARTIES WHO HAVE LICENSED SUCH MATERIAL, SERVICE, OR TECHNOLOGY TO US.
E. 12TWENTY DOES NOT HAVE ANY OBLIGATION TO VERIFY THE IDENTITY OF THE PERSONS USING ITS SERVICES, NOR DOES IT HAVE ANY OBLIGATION TO MONITOR THE USE OF ITS SERVICES BY OTHER USERS OF ITS COMMUNITY; THEREFORE, 12TWENTY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR IDENTITY THEFT OR ANY OTHER MISUSE OF YOUR IDENTITY OR INFORMATION.
F. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM 12twenty OR THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.
G. 12TWENTY DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE SERVICES IT PROVIDES WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR ERRORS IN FUNCTIONING. IN PARTICULAR, THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES MAY BE INTERRUPTED DUE TO MAINTENANCE, UPDATES, OR SYSTEM OR NETWORK FAILURES. 12TWENTY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY ANY SUCH INTERRUPTION OR ERRORS IN FUNCTIONING. FURTHERMORE, 12TWENTY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY MALFUNCTIONING, IMPOSSIBILITY OF ACCESS, OR POOR USE CONDITIONS OF THE 12TWENTY WEBSITE DUE TO INAPPROPRIATE EQUIPMENT, DISTURBANCES RELATED TO INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS, TO THE SATURATION OF THE INTERNET NETWORK, AND FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
A. SOME COUNTRIES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY IN CONTRACTS AND AS A RESULT THE CONTENTS OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION SHALL NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS BY NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY 12TWENTY’S FRAUD, DECEPTION, FALSE PROMISE, MISREPRESENTATION, OMISSION OF ANY MATERIAL FACT OR INTENTIONAL OR RECKLESS MISCONDUCT.
B. Neither 12Twenty nor any of our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, shareholders, or directors (“12Twenty Affiliates”) shall be cumulatively liable for (a) any damages in excess US $100 or (b) any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to you or any third person arising from your use of the Services, any platform applications or any of the content or other materials on, accessed through or downloaded from 12twenty. This limitation of liability is an essential basis of the bargain between the parties and without it the terms and prices charged would be different. This limitation of liability shall:
A. Mutual Rights of Termination.
You may terminate this Agreement, for any or no reason, at any time, by providing notice to 12twenty in accordance with the notice provision in Section X. This notice will be effective upon 12twenty processing your notice. 12twenty may terminate the Agreement and your account for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice. This cancellation shall be effective immediately or as may be specified in any notice. Termination of your 12twenty account includes disabling your access to the Services and may also bar you from any future use of the Services.
B. Misuse of the Services.
12twenty may restrict, suspend or terminate the account of any User who abuses or misuses the Services. Misuse of the Services includes inviting other Users with whom you do not know to connect; abusing any 12twenty messaging services; creating multiple or false accounts; using the Services commercially without 12twenty’s authorization, infringing any intellectual property rights, violating any obligations, or any other behavior that 12twenty, in its sole discretion, deems objectionable or contrary to its purpose. In addition, and without limiting the foregoing, 12twenty will terminate accounts of Users who, in 12twenty’s sole discretion, are deemed to be repeat infringers under the United States Copyright Act.
C. Effect of Termination.
Upon the termination of your 12twenty account, you lose access to the Services. The terms of this Agreement shall survive any termination, except your rights to use the Services and our obligations to provide them to you. You understand that any termination of Services may involve deletion of your content and information associated therewith from our live databases. 12twenty will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any suspension or termination, including for deletion of your content and information.
A. Governing Law.
This Agreement or any claim, cause of action or dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of California and the Federal Arbitration Act, as applicable, regardless of your country of origin or where you access the Services, and notwithstanding any conflicts of law principles and the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is hereby disclaimed.
B. Mandatory Arbitration.
1. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Service, or to any aspect of your relationship with 12twenty, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (a) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify, and (b) you or 12twenty may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement. .
2. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to us at [1112 Montana Ave, #186 Santa Monica, CA 90403, ATTN: Legal Department]. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or request for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, 12twenty will pay them for you. In addition, 12twenty will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 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 country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction..
3. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and 12twenty. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
4. YOU AND 12TWENTY HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and 12twenty are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section IX.B.1. (stating the applicability of the Arbitration Agreement) above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
5. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this section’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of California. All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
6. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: [email@example.com], within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Company username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Company account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us .
7. Except as provided in Section IX.B.5. (waiving class or other non-individualized relief) above, if any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Agreement. This Section will survive the termination of the Agreement or your relationship with 12twenty.
8. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if 12twenty makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing to 12twenty at the following address: [firstname.lastname@example.org].
If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; and if a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected in any way.
C. Notices and Service of Process.
We may notify you via postings on www.12twenty.com. Where we require that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing us with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Agreement, 12twenty’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may contact us at email@example.com.
Or via mail or overnight courier at:
ATTN: Legal Department
8605 Santa Monica Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90069-4109
Additionally, 12twenty accepts service of process at this address. Any notices that you provide without compliance with this section on Notices shall have no legal effect.
D. Entire Agreement.
You agree that this Agreement constitutes the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other 12twenty services, third-party content or third party software.
E. No informal waivers, agreements or representations.
Our failure to act with respect to a breach of this Agreement by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Agreement, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by any 12twenty Affiliate shall be deemed legally binding on any 12twenty Affiliate, unless documented in a physical writing hand signed by a duly appointed officer of 12twenty.
You hereby release 12twenty and 12twenty Affiliates and their successors from claims, demands, any and all losses, damages, rights, and actions of any kind, including personal injuries, death, and property damage, that is either directly or indirectly related to or arises from your use of Services, including but not limited to, any interactions with or conduct of other Users or third-party websites of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of the Agreement or your use of Services. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” The foregoing release does not apply to any claims, demands, or any losses, damages, rights and actions of any kind, including personal injuries, death or property damage for any unconscionable commercial practice by a 12twenty Affiliate or for such party’s fraud, deception, false, promise, misrepresentation or concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with any Services provided hereunder.
G. Assignment and Delegation.
You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Agreement. Any purported assignment and delegation shall be ineffective. We may freely assign or delegate all rights and obligations under the Agreement, fully or partially without notice to you. We may also substitute, by way of unilateral novation, effective upon notice to you, 12twenty, Inc. for any third party that assumes our rights and obligations under this Agreement.
H. Force Majeure.
12twenty shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
I. Potential Other Rights and Obligations.
