1. Accounts, Passwords, and Payments.
A. Account Types. We currently offer the following types of accounts through the Services: Individual Accounts, Institutional Accounts. Users of the Services include those who use the learning-directed portion of the Services and others (including parents and guardians of Child Users, Gift Account purchasers, teachers and school administrators, librarians, and or other institution administrators or agents).
(i) Family Accounts. A Family Account is for individual household use only.
We offer the option of purchasing pre-paid, non-refundable, non-transferable access to a Family Account as a gift (“Gift Account”). In these Terms, the person who purchases a Gift Account is the “Purchaser.” Upon purchase, the Purchaser will receive a Gift Account code that can be redeemed to activate the Account. Gift Account redemption codes must be redeemed by an Adult who can then set up and be responsible for the Account. Therefore, if you purchase a Gift Account, you represent and warrant that you will only provide the redemption code to an Adult. At the time of purchase, the Purchaser will choose the date the Gift Account is to be activated, provided that the activation date may not be more than 90 days after the date on which the Gift Account is purchased. At the time of purchase, the Purchaser will also have the option to print out the Gift Account code receipt or have the Company email it to the child’s parent or legal guardian. The Purchaser shall provide a valid email address for such parent or legal guardian. The Company is not responsible for errors or delays as a result of the email address(es) provided by the Purchaser. The Gift Account period will begin on either the date the Gift Account is redeemed or the Gift Account activation date, whichever is earlier. Discounts may be available for the purchase of multiple Gift Accounts, and all discounts or promo codes, if any, are applied at the time of payment. Gift Accounts are not redeemable or refundable for cash, subject to applicable law.
B. Passwords and Account Access. Every Account has one designated Adult User who must be at least 18 years of age. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account information. You agree a. that you will provide complete and accurate registration information about yourself and keep your Account information up-to-date, (b) that you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, (c) to notify us immediately of any unauthorized Account use, (d) that we are in no way responsible for any loss that you may incur as a result of any unauthorized use of your Account and password, and (e) that you will not sell, transfer, or assign your Account or any Account rights. If we learn that an ineligible user has created an Account, we may seek confirmation of the user’s status or deactivate the Account.
C. Account Fees. For certain types of Accounts, we may charge a fee, such as an Account fee or subscription fee. For existing subscribers, we may change your fee at any time in our sole discretion at the end of your subscription period, provided that we first notify you by email. All fees are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. We may offer promotional trial subscriptions to access the Services for free or at special discounted prices. If you sign up for a trial subscription, your rights to use the Services are limited by the terms of such trial and will terminate or renew according to the terms of your trial arrangement and/or any applicable Additional Terms. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds for existing subscribers in the event of a price drop or promotional offering for new subscribers.
(i) Authorization to Charge for Services. You must either use a credit card or other payment mechanism accepted by us (e.g., PayPal, Apple’s iTunes App Store) (“Pay Mechanism”) to activate and maintain a paid Account. You authorize us to charge you through the Pay Mechanism that you use when registering for an Account. You will also be responsible for charges for any products or services that you order that are offered for sale through the Services. If we do not receive payment from the Pay Mechanism you use, you agree to pay all amounts due hereunder upon our demand and will be solely responsible for any dispute with your payment provider. Should the Pay Mechanism provided initially be declined for insufficient funds or any other reason, we reserve the right to attempt to recharge the Pay Mechanism in full or in lesser installments of the initially incurred charge for the duration of the Account subscription you selected and for up to an additional ninety days. You will not be charged more than the amount for which you purchased your Account subscription. You will be solely responsible for all overdraft fees and/or penalties that may be assessed by your payment provider. We use a third-party service provider to process payments on our behalf. You acknowledge and agree that in the event the third-party payment processor experiences a data breach that affects your information through no fault of Company, Company will in no way be responsible or liable to you for any such breach.
(ii) Subscription Renewal. By activating an Account, you agree that we may renew your subscription automatically for the same subscription term on the day after your previous subscription ends, and you authorize us to charge you for the subscription term, unless you cancel your Account prior to its renewal date through the procedures described in the “Subscription Cancellation” section below. We will charge your credit card (or the other method of payment initially used by you) each year, month, or other applicable period (depending on the term that you selected) for the then-current applicable price.
(iii) Subscription Cancellation. Unless you purchased your subscription through Apple’s iTunes App Store, to cancel your subscription and avoid future billing, you may cancel your Account prior to its renewal date emailing email@example.com with clear communication that you want to cancel your account, or by cancelling your account in from the customer portal which can be accessed from the "Settings" page for logged in users at littlepilgrimstheology.com. If you do so, please know that we endeavor to have customer requests handled within 48 hours; however, we cannot guarantee that your cancellation will be registered within that time period. If you downloaded our app through Apple’s iTunes App Store, you must follow the cancellation instructions provided in the iTunes App Store. For all Accounts, you will continue to have access to your Account for the period of time that has already been prepaid unless a refund is or has been processed. If you activated a paid Account at a discounted or promotional rate, the period of time after cancellation that your Account will continue to be accessible will be calculated based on the non-promotional/non-discounted rate in effect at the time of cancellation. After you cancel your Account, we will not charge you any subscription fees after the expiration of your then-current subscription. Please note we are not obligated to provide a full or partial refund for prepaid sums for any reason. In any event, you will be able to continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid unless a refund is or has been processed.

6. Governing Law/Jurisdiction.
A. Governing Law/Jurisdiction. THESE TERMS, AND ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, WILL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES.
B. Arbitration and Dispute Resolution. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Services or these Terms (collectively, “Dispute”), you and we agree to the following resolution process with respect to the Dispute. To most efficiently resolve any Dispute, you and we agree to first discuss the Dispute informally for at least thirty (30) days. To do so, the party who wants to raise the Dispute must first send to the other party a notice that must include (1) a description of the Dispute and (2) a proposed resolution (together, the “Dispute Notice”). If you want to raise a Dispute, you must send your Dispute Notice by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we would like to subsequently discuss your Dispute Notice with you, we will contact you by using contact information included with your Dispute Notice. If we want to raise a Dispute, we will send our Dispute Notice to you at the email address we have on file for you. If we do not have a valid email address on file for you, we will send our Dispute Notice to you through a means that complies with the service of process rules in the state of Texas.
If you and Company do not reach an agreed-upon resolution within 30 days of receipt of the Dispute Notice, you and Company agree that the Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. In resolving the Dispute, the arbitrator will consider applicable law, the provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms, and any facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned decision. If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within sixty (60) days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a lawyer or retired judge, using JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service to which you and we consent. You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
AAA: 800.778.7879 JAMS: 800.352.5267
(i) Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator will resolve the submitted Dispute and can issue a decision consistent with this Section 6. However, WITH ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY; THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES; AND JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules, but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 6 to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered into any court that has jurisdiction over the parties.
(ii) Small Claims Matters Are Excluded. Either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes in small claims court.
C. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 6 will not apply to any legal action taken by either party to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in conjunction with any intellectual property claim or claim related to unauthorized access to data through the Services (including, but not limited to, claims related to patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secrets, and claims relating to the access or retrieval of data through the Services using an automated process such as scraping).
D. Timing of Claim. To help resolve any issues between you and us promptly and directly, you and Company agree that any Dispute Notice must be sent, or that any small claims or injunctive relief complaint permitted under this Section 6 must be filed, within one year after the events giving rise to the Dispute arise; otherwise, the Dispute is waived.
E. No Class Actions. You and Company agree that any Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.
7. Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties.

Some jurisdictions limit or do not allow the disclaimer of implied or other warranties, so the above disclaimers may not apply to the extent that such jurisdictions’ laws are applicable.
8. Limitations of Liability.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY COMPANY PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, including personal injury or death or for any direct, indirect, economic, exemplary, special, punitive, incidental, or consequential losses or damages that are directly or indirectly related to:

The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if Company Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action of contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, force majeure, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the Services).
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages of the sort that are described above, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
EXCEPT AS MAY BE PROVIDED IN ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY PARTIES’ TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES AND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO US DURING THE PREVIOUS TWELVE MONTHS FOR ALL POSSIBLE DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION.
To the maximum extent allowed by law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Company Parties from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from: a. your breach or alleged breach of these Terms; (b) your use of the Services or activities in connection with the Services; (c) your User-Generated Content; (d) your violation of any law, rule or regulation; or (e) your violation of any third party rights. The Company Parties reserve the right to assume, at their sole expense, the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with the Company Parties in asserting any available defenses. You will not, in any event, settle any claim without our prior written consent. If any child you authorize to use or access the Services disaffirms any or all of these Terms, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless for any damages we suffer by the child’s disaffirmance.
