If you have been notified by us that you are prohibited from using the Platforms, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you have no license to use the Platforms and any access by you or on your behalf shall be unauthorized and unlawful.
You also agree that any violation by you of this Agreement will constitute an unlawful and unfair business practice, and will cause irreparable harm to CompetentSee, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to CompetentSee obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that CompetentSee deems necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies CompetentSee may have at law or in equity. If CompetentSee does take any legal action against you as a result of your violation of these Terms, CompetentSee will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of such action, in addition to any other relief granted to CompetentSee.

11 Third Party Links and Mentor Relationships
A link on the Platforms to a non-CompetentSee website to mentoring service advertised by a user of the Platforms does not mean that CompetentSee endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use, of such website or mentoring service or the products or services offered thereon. Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that CompetentSee is not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such third party websites and mentoring servuces; (ii) the content, products, or services on or available from such third party websites or mentoring services; or (iii) the privacy policies or practices of such third party websites or mentoring services.

To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty, the scope and duration of such warranty will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.
14 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND DAMAGES
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY WILLING TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE PLATFORMS IF YOU AGREE TO CERTAIN LIMITATIONS OF OUR LIABILITY TO YOU AND TO THIRD PARTIES. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR THE COMPETENTSEE RELATED PARTIES (DEFINED IN SECTION 14) BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, LOST OPPORTUNITIES, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTIONS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE PLATFORMS, HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER ARISING UNDER STATUTE, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE OR WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE OR IN THE CONTEMPLATION OF THE PARTIES.
SUCH LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY WHETHER THE DAMAGES ARISE FROM USE OR MISUSE OF AND RELIANCE ON THE PLATFORMS, FROM INABILITY TO USE THE PLATFORMS, OR FROM THE INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, OR TERMINATION OF THE PLATFORMS (INCLUDING SUCH DAMAGES INCURRED BY THIRD PARTIES).
SUCH LIMITATION SHALL ALSO APPLY WITH RESPECT TO DAMAGES INCURRED BY REASON OF OTHER SERVICES OR GOODS RECEIVED OR ADVERTISED THROUGH ANY LINKS PROVIDED IN THE PLATFORMS, AS WELL AS BY REASON OF ANY INFORMATION OR ADVICE RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED ON THE PLATFORMS OR RECEIVED THROUGH ANY LINKS PROVIDED VIA THE PLATFORMS.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR LIMITED LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES OR EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT WAIVE OR LIMIT ANY RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS NOT ALLOWED BY LAW AND WE DO NOT REQUEST THAT YOU WAIVE OR LIMIT ANY SUCH RIGHTS.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless CompetentSee and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, directors, officers, employees, licensors, co-branders and other partners, contractors, representatives, successors, and assigns (“CompetentSee Related Parties”) from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, suits, proceedings, investigations, allegations, damages, costs, expenses, amounts agreed to in settlement, losses and any and all other liabilities (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) arising out of or resulting from: (i) your use of the Platforms; (ii) a violation of these Terms; (iii) a violation of any rights of any other person or entity; (iv) your registration or any activity in which you engage using the Platforms; (v) any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, spyware, malware, cancelbots or other similar harmful or deleterious programming routines input by you; or (vi) any other acts, omissions, negligence or misconduct by you.
16 Governing Law; Arbitration; Jury Trial Waiver; Class Action Waiver; Forum Selection Clause
These Terms and the relationship between you and CompetentSee shall be governed by the laws of the State of Utah, without giving effect to any choice of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of a different country or state. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Utah for the adjudication of any and all claims arising out of your use of the Platforms and your relationship with CompetentSee, and you waive any objection thereto.
Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and CompetentSee or the CompetentSee Related Parties, will exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration. Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). As modified by this Agreement, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively “Rules and Procedures”). You are thus GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and CompetentSee must abide by the following rules: (a) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR COMPETENTSEE MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (b) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF, (c) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, CompetentSee will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (d) CompetentSee also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (e) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (f) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (g) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (h) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and then in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or CompetentSee may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of CompetentSee’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret will not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims will be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in Salt Lake City, Utah in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Salt Lake City, Utah for such purposes. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate. With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (a) or (b) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor CompetentSee will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute will be exclusively brought in state or federal court in Salt Lake City, Utah.
(a) Force Majeure. We will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside of our reasonable control, including acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
(b) Independent Contractor. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Platforms.
(c) Assignment. We may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign this Agreement without our prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.
(d) No Waiver. Our failure to enforce or our delay in enforcement of any provision of this Agreement shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect our right to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, condition, or requirement of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition, or requirement.
(e) Equitable Remedies. You hereby agree that we would be irreparably damaged if this Agreement was not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws. Further, unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise
(f) Severability. Should any provision of the Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the full extent permitted by law.
(g) Electronic Communications. You Consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Platforms. You agree that all agreements, notices, documents, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically or post on the Platforms satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting us in the manner set forth in Section (h). If you withdraw your consent, from that time forward, you must stop using the Platforms. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the legal validity and enforceability of any obligations or any electronic communications provided or business transacted between us prior to the time you withdraw your consent. Please keep us informed of any changes in your email or mailing address so that you continue to receive all communications without interruption.
(h) Notices to CompetentSee. Any notices or communication required or permitted to be given to you will be as stated in Section (g) above. Any notices or communication required or permitted to be given to CompetentSee shall be in writing and shall be sufficiently given if delivered via email or mailed as follows:
If you have any further questions or comments about us or our policies, email us at [email protected] or by post to: CompetentSee, LLC 2698 Redwood Rd #0, West Valley City, UT 84119 United States Phone: 801-349-1049
Any notice delivered via email shall be deemed to have been received on the first business day after which it was sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid. Any notice sent by letter shall be deemed to have been received on the fourth business day after it was posted.
(i) Foreign Language Translations. For your convenience only, CompetentSee may provide you with a non-English translation of the Agreement. You agree that any such translation is for reference purposes and the English language versions will govern the parties’ relationship.
(j) U.S. Export Regulations. You acknowledge and agree that material on the Platforms is subject to the U.S. Export Administration Laws and Regulations. Diversion of such material contrary to U.S. law is prohibited. You certify that you are not on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Persons List or affiliated lists or on the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Specially Designated Nationals List. You agree to comply strictly with all U.S. export laws and assume sole responsibility for obtaining licenses to export or re-export as may be required.
(k) Survival. All provisions of this Agreement related to limitation and exclusion of liability, waivers, assumption of risk, warranties, and indemnification obligations survive termination of this Agreement, and any other terms of this Agreement which by their nature extend beyond the termination of this Agreement, remain in effect until fulfilled and apply to respective successors and assigns.
(l) Nothing contained herein shall in any way be construed to constitute that any subscribed user of CompetentSee is an agent or employee of CompetentSee.
(l) Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including any materials incorporated by reference hereunder, constitutes all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and us and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of this Agreement, whether written or oral. Any additional or different terms or conditions in relation to the subject matter of the Agreement in any written or oral communication from you to us are void.

19 Subscription Plan Agreements
