or Content Offerings. As between Digitalatto Academy and Content Providers, such Content
Offerings are governed by the relevant agreements in place between Digitalatto Academy and

Digitalatto Academy offers paid Services (e.g., course certificates for certain courses) for a
fee. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for

manner with a payment mechanism associated with the applicable paid Services. If your

Academy reserves the right to change any fees at any time at its sole discretion. Any change,

Degree, MasterTrack, and University Certificate Programs
The Services may allow you to enroll in Degree, MasterTrack, and University Certificate
programs or similar programs offered by our Content Providers on the Digitalatto Academy
platform. Our Content Providers serve as the distance education providers of these programs
and determine admissions, refund, and graduation or completion policies and requirements.
Nothing in these Terms shall restrict the applicability to you of any institutional policies
established by our Content Provider in connection with these programs (e.g., student codes of
conduct); such policies shall supplement these Terms and to the extent there is a conflict
between such policies and these Terms, as between you and our Content Provider, our
Content Provider’s policies shall govern.
Depending on the program, tuition and fee payments for these programs may be collected by
Digitalatto Academy or our Content Partners. If your payment method fails or your account is
past due, we or our Content Partners may collect tuition and fees using other collection
mechanisms. Tuition and fees may vary based on your location and other factors, and
Digitalatto Academy and its Content Partners reserve the right to change any tuition and fees
for future semesters or equivalent payment periods at their sole discretion. Refunds may be
available for paid Services as described in our Refund Policy below. You are encouraged to
research and consider whether the tuition and fees required for Content Offerings align with
your professional and financial goals.
Professional licensure, certification, and job requirements for various professions may vary in
each state and country, and job requirements may vary by employer. Digitalatto Academy
does not guarantee licensure, certification or qualification for any profession or job on the
basis of your completion of a Content Offering on Digitalatto Academy. You are advised to

in which you work or intend to work, and to investigate whether the Content Offering in
which you intend to enroll meets your academic and/or professional needs before enrolling.

regions or countries for various reasons, including due to applicable export control
requirements or internet access limitations and restrictions from governments. None of
Digitalatto Academy, its Content Providers and instructors, its contributors, sponsors, and

15. Export Controls
You warrant that you are not located in, or ordinarily reside in, any country that is subject to
applicable U.S. laws and regulations preventing Digitalatto Academy from providing you

circumventing these laws is strictly prohibited.
You warrant that you are not named on any government prohibited, denied, unverified-party,
sanctions, debarment, or exclusion list or export-controlled related restricted party list
(collectively, “Sanctions Lists”). You will immediately discontinue your use of the Services

17. Governing Law and Venue
Except as provided below, the Services are managed by Digitalatto Academy, Inc. which is
located in Santa Clara County, California. You agree that these Terms will be governed by
the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of law provisions. In the event of
any dispute related to these Terms that is not subject to binding arbitration, you and
Digitalatto Academy will submit to the personal jurisdiction of and exclusive venue in the
federal and state courts located in and serving Santa Clara County, California as the legal
forum for any such dispute.
To the extent you are located in the European Union or the United Kingdom, the Services are
managed by Digitalatto Academy Europe B.V. You agree that these Terms will be governed
by the laws of the Netherlands, excluding its conflicts of law provisions.
This section shall not deprive you of any mandatory consumer protections under the law of
the country to which we direct Services to you, where you have your habitual residence.
18. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
You and Digitalatto Academy agree to submit to binding arbitration any and all disputes,
claims, or controversies of any kind, whether based on statute, regulation, constitution,
common law, equity, or any other legal basis or theory, and whether pre-existing, present, or
future, that arise out of or relate to our Services, these Terms, and/or any other relationship or
dispute between you and us, including without limitation (i) the scope, applicability, or
enforceability of these Terms and/or this arbitration provision, and (ii) relationships with
third parties who are not parties to these Terms or this arbitration provision to the fullest
extent permitted by applicable law (each a “Claim,” and collectively the “Claims”).
Any and all Claims shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the
Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), as
amended, in effect at the time arbitration is initiated. The AAA Rules are available online at
www.adr.org or by calling (800) 778-7879, and are hereby incorporated by reference. In the
event of any inconsistency between this arbitration provision and the AAA Rules, such
inconsistency shall be resolved in favor of this provision. If you decide to initiate arbitration,
you agree to pay the initiation fee of $200 (or the amount otherwise required by the AAA
Rules), and we agree to pay the remaining arbitration initiation fee and any additional deposit
required by AAA to initiate your arbitration. We will pay the costs of the arbitration
proceeding, including the arbitrator’s fees; however, other fees, such as attorney’s fees and
expenses of travel to the arbitration, shall be paid in accordance with the AAA Rules and
applicable law. We will pay all costs associated with any arbitration that we commence. A
single, neutral arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules shall decide all Claims.
The arbitrator shall be an active member in good standing of the bar for any state in the
continental United States and shall be either actively engaged in the practice of law for at
least five years or a retired judge. The arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege recognized at
law. Unless inconsistent with applicable law, and except as otherwise provided herein, each
party shall bear the expense of its respective attorney, expert, and witness fees, regardless of
which party prevails in the arbitration. Any arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in the
federal judicial district of your residence, and you will be given the opportunity to attend the
proceeding and be heard. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding upon the parties
and may be enforced in any federal or state court that has jurisdiction. You and we agree that
the arbitration shall be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any
element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents
submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be
disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial
proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of
Neither you nor Digitalatto Academy may act as a class representative, nor participate as a
member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. The Claims may not be arbitrated
on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Digitalatto
Academy individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other
persons or parties who may be similarly situated. Accordingly, you and we agree that the
AAA Supplementary Rules for Class Arbitrations do not apply to our arbitration. This
arbitration provision and the procedures applicable to the arbitration contemplated by this
provision are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding any state law that
may be applicable.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or us from seeking action by federal, state,
or local government agencies. You and we also have the right to exercise self-help remedies,
such as set-off, or to bring qualifying claims in small claims court so long as the matter
remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative)
basis. In addition, you and we retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction
for provisional or ancillary relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary
injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with any of these Terms,
nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in this
A court may sever any portion of this Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section
that it finds to be unenforceable, except for the prohibitions on any Claim being handled on a
class or representative basis, and the remaining portions of this arbitration provision will
remain valid and enforceable. 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 these Terms.
THIS BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER SECTION LIMITS
CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION,
THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF
CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, AND THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN
DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE AAA RULES. OTHER RIGHTS THAT
YOU OR DIGITALATTO ACADEMY WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE
AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
19. General Terms
Revisions to the Terms
We reserve the right to revise the Terms at our sole discretion at any time. Any revisions to
the Terms will be effective immediately upon posting by us. For any material changes to the
Terms, we will take reasonable steps to notify you of such changes, via a banner on the
website, email notification, another method, or combination of methods. In all cases, your
continued use of the Services after publication of such changes, with or without notification,
constitutes binding acceptance of the revised Terms.
If it turns out that a particular provision of these Terms is not enforceable, this will not affect
any other terms. If you do not comply with these Terms, and we do not take immediate
action, this does not indicate that we relinquish any rights that we may have (such as taking
action in the future).
Our Content Providers and integrated service providers are third party beneficiaries of the
Terms and may enforce those provisions of the Terms that relate to them.
20. Honor Code
All users participating in Content Offerings must agree to abide by the following code:
1. I will register for only one account, unless expressly permitted to register for
additional accounts by Digitalatto Academy.

3. I will not make solutions to homework, quizzes, exams, projects, and other

permits sharing solutions). This includes both solutions written by me, as well as any
