i. We have included, in italics at the beginning of each section, summaries that provide short explanations of the legal language in plain English to aid in understanding, but such summaries are not legally binding.
1. GETTING ACCESS AND GETTING STARTED WITH GOGUARDIAN OFFERINGS
i. This Section explains establishing and maintaining a GoGuardian Account, including orders for GoGuardian Offerings. This Section also reminds you of the importance of being mindful about the information and settings in your GoGuardian Account – the value of our tools is dependent on the accuracy of the information you provide and the proper selection of product settings.
GoGuardian makes our Offerings available on a paid subscription-based license. As further described in Section 4.1, from time to time and in its sole discretion, GoGuardian may offer limited free, trial or beta GoGuardian Offerings at no additional charge.
You may purchase Subscriptions to our Offerings either directly from GoGuardian or indirectly through one of GoGuardian’s Authorized Resellers. If you purchase a Subscription to a GoGuardian Offering through an Authorized Reseller, you will enter into an Order Form directly with such Authorized Reseller and may be subject to additional terms as agreed upon between you and the Authorized Reseller. You expressly agree that this Agreement governs your access to and use of any GoGuardian Offering that you acquire from an Authorized Reseller, as well your relationship with GoGuardian as to any products or services you purchase through an Authorized Reseller, and that GoGuardian has the right to enforce the terms of this Agreement with respect to such purchases. You also acknowledge that no Authorized Reseller is authorized to provide warranties with respect to any GoGuardian Offerings in excess of those provided by GoGuardian in this Agreement. The terms regarding any value-added services provided to you by an Authorized Reseller are solely between you and the Authorized Reseller and we have no responsibility for any such services.
If during the Subscription Term, you would like to expand your base Subscription(s) to include additional licenses above your Licensed Capacity, please contact GoGuardian so that we can send you an additional Order Form for those Add-Ons. If we do not hear from you and you deploy additional Licenses, we or, as applicable, an Authorized Reseller will send you an Order Form and invoice you for the subscriptions to the Add-Ons that you use above your Licensed Capacity. Add-Ons, once deployed and paid, will be rolled into your base Subscription.
1.2 GoGuardian Accounts and School Account Information
Before accessing certain GoGuardian Offerings, you may be required to create a GoGuardian Account. When setting up your GoGuardian Account, you may link your GoGuardian Offering with your Google and/or Microsoft Active Directory account for ease of sign on and to pull in a directory of Managed Accounts or Devices. In linking to your Google and/or Microsoft account, you are granting GoGuardian access to certain account information from your Google and/or Microsoft account, as permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of that Google or Microsoft Active Directory account.
1.2.1 Authorized Users
Within the GoGuardian Account, you will have the ability to enable separate accounts for Authorized Users. You are responsible for issuing and maintaining such accounts only for appropriate Authorized Users, as well as issuing and maintaining appropriate permission settings for each Authorized User.
1.2.2 School Information
In creating a GoGuardian Account, you agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information necessary to create a GoGuardian Account and deploy the purchased GoGuardian Offerings on Managed Devices or Accounts, including accurate, up-to-date and complete School Profile Information, Authorized School Personnel Information, Personal Student Information, Parent/Guardian Information, and Association Information; and (b) promptly update any such information to maintain its accuracy and completeness. Because proper implementation and operation of the GoGuardian Offerings is dependent on the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the Personal Student Information, Parent/GoGuardian Information and Association Information, it is of the utmost importance that your School take great care in maintaining and updating this Personal Student Information, Parent/Guardian Information and Association Information at all times during the Term.
You are responsible for ensuring the confidentiality and security of School Account Information, including protecting, and requiring Authorized Users to protect, usernames and passwords associated with GoGuardian Account, and notifying GoGuardian immediately if you suspect or know that (1) a username and password is known by someone other than the applicable Authorized User; and/or (2) your GoGuardian Account (including any individual Authorized User account) has been compromised.
1.2.3 Account Settings
You are responsible for selecting and updating the settings in the GoGuardian Offerings as you see fit and ensuring that the selections comply with all Applicable Law, as well as any guidelines and requirements you have established for monitoring Managed Devices or Accounts and parents’ or guardians’ authorization of such monitoring. If you have questions about any settings in a GoGuardian Offering or GoGuardian Account, such as permissions and settings associated with Managed Devices or Accounts, please visit GoGuardian’s Help Center and/or contact email@example.com.
1.3 Payment Terms
Fees due for initial orders, any Add-Ons, and any renewals of GoGuardian Offerings shall be set forth in the applicable Order Form (“Fees”). Fees for purchases made directly from GoGuardian shall be paid within thirty (30) days of the date of GoGuardian’s issuance of an invoice for such purchases, unless otherwise stated on an Order Form. Payment obligations for purchases made through an Authorized Reseller shall be as agreed upon by you and the Authorized Reseller.
Fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction; you are responsible for paying all such taxes, levies, duties and assessments associated with purchases and transactions under this Agreement.
Unless otherwise stated on an Order Form, Fees are paid in advance of each billing period. Payment obligations under this Agreement are non-cancelable and all Fees paid are non-refundable. Upon your cancellation or termination of any Subscription, you remain responsible for payment of all Fees allocable to the terminated portion of the Subscription Term referenced in the applicable Order Form without any refund owed to you, unless otherwise mutually agreed to in writing between you and GoGuardian.
Upon notice to you, GoGuardian may increase any Fees specified in an Order Form, provided the increase will not become effective until the expiration of the current Subscription Term. GoGuardian may increase any Fees that are not specified in an Order Form between you and GoGuardian at any time, with or without notice to you. GoGuardian may allow you to continue using a free, trial or beta GoGuardian Offering on a paid Subscription basis, but your continued use and your Subscription would be subject to a completed Order Form and payment of the applicable Fee.
2. GOGUARDIAN OFFERINGS
i. This Section explains more about the GoGuardian Offerings to which you have subscribed, including updates and linkage with other third party integration software that GoGuardian makes available to you. GoGuardian Offerings may experience downtime or suspend access in certain situations.
2.1 Access and Updates to GoGuardian Offerings.
GoGuardian will make our Offerings to which you have subscribed available to you, subject to the terms of this Agreement. From time to time, GoGuardian may also make updates to its Offerings to you, including to improve its GoGuardian Offerings. You agree that GoGuardian may automatically install updates, upgrades, and additional features to the GoGuardian Offerings that we deem to be reasonable, beneficial to you, and/or reasonably necessary. You acknowledge and agree that any obligation GoGuardian may have to support previous version(s) of a GoGuardian Offering may end when an update, upgrade, and/or additional feature is made available for the GoGuardian Offering. The license granted for a Subscription shall apply to any updates, upgrades, and/or additional features that are not distributed with a separate license or other agreement. If we make any material changes to a GoGuardian Offering, we will notify you within the GoGuardian Offering interface or by sending you an email.
With respect to a GoGuardian Offering accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store (an “App Store Sourced Application”), you agree to only use the App Store Sourced Application (a) on an Apple-branded product that runs the iOS (Apple’s proprietary operating system) and (b) as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that the availability of the App Store Sourced Application is dependent on the Apple App Store.
2.2 Downtime and Suspension of GoGuardian Offerings.
You acknowledge that you may experience downtime (a) as a result of GoGuardian conducting maintenance; or (b) in connection with a force majeure event (as described in Section 14.5). In addition, you acknowledge that GoGuardian, may at its discretion, suspend your access to the GoGuardian Offerings for your breach of this Agreement, if GoGuardian has reasonable grounds to suspect that any School Account Information provided by you or any Authorized User is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if GoGuardian deems it reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate harm to GoGuardian, you, any other of GoGuardian’s customers or a third party if the offerings were not suspended, or to comply, in our sole discretion, with legal requirements.
2.3 Integrations with GoGuardian Offerings.
GoGuardian may allow you to access certain third party software or offerings through your GoGuardian Account via an application programming interface (“API”) or other technical connection (such software or offering, an “Integration Offering”). Because you control whether to integrate and use an Integration Offering, you are solely responsible for all interactions with the Integration Offering, including ensuring appropriate privacy, contractual, and other protections with it as well as ensuring that you are complying with any terms you are required to agree with the provider of such Integration Offering. Integration Offerings are not “GoGuardian Offerings” under this Agreement and are not subject to any of the warranties, service commitments or other obligations with respect to GoGuardian Offerings hereunder. The availability of any Integration Offering through GoGuardian Offerings does not imply GoGuardian’s endorsement of or affiliation with the provider of such Integration Offering. GoGuardian does not control Integration Offerings and will have no liability to you in connection with any Integration Offering. GoGuardian has no obligation to monitor or maintain access to Integration Offerings, and may disable the ability to integrate with them or restrict access to any Integration Offerings at any time, with or without notice to you (though we, of course, will endeavor to provide notice of any such disabling whenever reasonably practicable under the circumstances). By using or enabling any Integration Offering, you are expressly permitting GoGuardian to disclose School Profile Information, Authorized School Personnel Information, Personal Student Information, Parent/Guardian Information, Association Information or other information, including support requests and School Log and Cookie Information to the extent necessary to utilize the Integration Offering. YOUR USE OF INTEGRATION OFFERINGS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND IS SUBJECT TO ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, CONDITIONS AND POLICIES APPLICABLE TO SUCH INTEGRATION OFFERINGS (SUCH AS TERMS OF SERVICE OR PRIVACY POLICIES OF THE PROVIDERS OF SUCH INTEGRATION OFFERINGS).

School shall continue to be responsible for all Fees for the terminated Subscription Term and other Fees agreed to in the Order Form except to the extent School terminates this Agreement as a result of GoGuardian’s uncured material breach or GoGuardian terminates without cause (i.e., not as a result of School’s uncured material breach), in which cases School shall not be obligated to pay for (and shall be entitled to a refund by GoGuardian of) the Fees allocable to the unused portion of the Subscription Term.

9. ALERTS AND NOTIFICATIONS
i. This Section explains that some GoGuardian Offerings are designed to generate alerts and/or have other notification features, and that, through your settings, you have some ability to control whether to receive certain alerts and/or notifications . It is important for you to understand these features and settings, and to review alerts and notifications carefully and promptly so that you can properly intervene to help students stay safe.
Some GoGuardian Offerings contain features that generate alerts and/or notifications for School or a designated Authorized User’s review and attention related to a user’s activity through a Managed Device or Account. These alerts and notifications are tools designed to help you support and protect the wellbeing of your students and school community. If you receive an alert and/or gain access to any information that triggers a legal obligation, such as a reporting or intervention duty for you (including, for an example, an alert from a GoGuardian Offering that one of your students is potentially at risk of suicide), it is your sole responsibility to fulfill that legal obligation and take any additional, responsible actions necessary to safeguard the students in compliance with Applicable Law. In addition, to the extent you elect not to receive one or more types of alerts and/or notifications in your settings, you are solely responsible for that decision. GoGuardian does not review alerts generated through any of the GoGuardian Offerings or take any action based on these alerts. or review your settings.
Your escalation and notification list for such alert and/or notification feature in your account for a particular GoGuardian Offering may change from time to time, including because contact information changes (e.g., changes in School Profile Information, Authorized School Personnel Information, Personal Student Information and Parent/Guardian Information (e.g., contact information, including an Authorized User’s email address, or changes in Parent/Guardian Information ), and Association Information, including, for example, the relationship of an Authorized Personnel User or a guardian/parent to a child/student changes (e.g., change in guardianship or educational rights holder). Without limiting the generality of Section 1.1.2, it is important that you maintain accurate and up-to-date Authorized School Personnel Information, Personal Student Information, Parent/Guardian Information, and Association Information to ensure the appropriateness and timeliness of any alerts and notifications generated through a GoGuardian Offering. It is also important that you remind parents/guardians to update School of any changes, including contact information and guardianship.
Additionally, without limiting the generality of the other terms of this Agreement, if your School uses GoGuardian Beacon, your School represents and warrants that your School: (1) is solely responsible for having, to the extent legally required, an up-to-date and easily available suicide prevention policy; (2) is solely responsible for having, to the extent legally required, a necessary suicide prevention program; and (3) your School will notify parents/guardians about your School’s adoption of GoGuardian Beacon and educate them about suicide prevention (including, suicide risk factors, warning signs, and resources) before enabling the Guardian Notification feature (or similar functionality) of GoGuardian Beacon.
10. WARRANTIES, DISCLAIMER, AND RELEASE
i. This Section explains that GoGuardian strives to provide your School with our Offerings with a certain level of skill and care, but we cannot promise that our Offerings are perfect.
GoGuardian provides the GoGuardian Offerings using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care, but we cannot make guarantees about the operation, use or results achieved through the use of the GoGuardian Offerings. ACCORDINGLY, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, EACH GOGUARDIAN OFFERING IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND SCHOOL’S USE IS AT ITS SOLE RISK.

THE GOGUARDIAN PARTIES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND HEREBY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ALL WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, ACCURACY, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE GOGUARDIAN PARTIES MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT ANY GOGUARDIAN OFFERINGS WILL MEET SCHOOL’S REQUIREMENTS, WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS, OR WILL BE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CODE, COMPLETE, LEGAL, OR SAFE. SCHOOL IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SCHOOL ACCOUNT INFORMATION, THE MEANS BY WHICH SCHOOL ACQUIRES SCHOOL ACCOUNT INFORMATION, ACTIVITY INFORMATION, PERSONAL STUDENT INFORMATION, GUARDIAN/PARENT INFORMATION AND SCHOOL LOG AND COOKIE INFORMATION, AND ALL OF COMMUNICATIONS AND INTERACTIONS BASED ON THE GOGUARDIAN OFFERINGS, INCLUDING ANY AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED ALERTS THAT SCHOOL MAY RECEIVE. GOGUARDIAN IS NOT A MEDICAL HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. SCHOOL UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT GOGUARDIAN AND THE OTHER GOGUARDIAN PARTIES ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION OTHER THAN TO PROVIDE THE GOGUARDIAN OFFERINGS TO SCHOOL IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
SCHOOL HEREBY RELEASES EACH OF THE GOGUARDIAN PARTIES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS IN RIGHTS FROM ANY CLAIMS, DAMAGES, AND DEMANDS OF EVERY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO ANY CLAIMS MADE BY SCHOOL, ANY AUTHORIZED USER, ANY USER OF A MANAGED DEVICE OR ACCOUNT OR THEIR FAMILIES. IF APPLICABLE LAW REQUIRES ANY WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY GOGUARDIAN OFFERING, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO NINETY (90) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF FIRST USE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND/OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO SCHOOL. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT EXCLUDES, RESTRICTS OR MODIFIES ANY GUARANTEE, WARRANTY, TERM OR CONDITION, RIGHT OR REMEDY IMPLIED OR IMPOSED BY ANY APPLICABLE LAW WHICH CANNOT LAWFULLY BE EXCLUDED, RESTRICTED OR MODIFIED.

This Agreement and any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement are governed by the laws of the state of California, United States, without regard to its conflict of law principles. You further agree to accept service of process by mail. To the extent the parties are permitted under this Agreement to initiate litigation in court, the parties consent to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in the courts located in Los Angeles County, California. If School is a United States public and accredited educational institution, domiciled in a state within the United States that expressly requires a different choice of law other than California law, then School’s state’s law will apply. If School is a United States public and accredited educational institution domiciled in a state within the United States that expressly requires venue or jurisdiction of a different state, then School’s state’s required venue and jurisdiction will apply.
13.2 Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration; Class Action Waiver (“Arbitration Agreement”)
In the event of a dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement, any GoGuardian Offering, any person’s access to and/or use of a GoGuardian Offering, and/or the provision of content, features, and/or technology on or through a GoGuardian Offering (collectively, “Claims”), the parties must first give the other notice of the Claim. This notice must include a brief written statement with the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, as well as the facts giving rise to the Claim and the relief requested. You must send any such notice to GoGuardian by email to firstname.lastname@example.org AND by U.S. Mail to GoGuardian, 2030 E Maple Ave, El Segundo, CA 90245. If we have your contact information, we will send any such notice to you by U.S. Mail and your email address.
The parties shall use reasonable, good faith efforts to resolve any Claim through consultation and good faith negotiations within thirty (30) days from the date that any notice of a Claim is sent. After thirty (30) days, you or GoGuardian may resort to the other alternatives described in this Section 13.2.1. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the notice requirement in this section and the 30-day negotiation period required shall not apply to Claims involving patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, trade secrets or piracy or unauthorized use of a GoGuardian Offering.
13.2.1 Binding Arbitration
Arbitration Rules and Forum Except as otherwise specifically set forth below, any Claims between you and GoGuardian, if unresolved through informal consultation and negotiation pursuant to the preceding paragraph, shall be resolved by binding arbitration to be held in Los Angeles, California. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if School is a United States public and accredited educational institution domiciled in a state within the United States that expressly requires a different location for arbitration other than Los Angeles, California, then School’s state’s required location for binding arbitration will apply. If School is a United States public and accredited educational institution and School’s consent to binding arbitration is expressly prohibited by the laws of the state within the United States in which School’s educational institution is domiciled, then this Section is hereby waived. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator, governed by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures (collectively, “JAMS Rules”), as modified by this Agreement, and administered by JAMS. The JAMS Rules and fee information are available at www.jamsadr.org or by calling JAMS at 1-800-352-5267. 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 claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and GoGuardian. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties.
Exceptions: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims Claims concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, and Claims of piracy or unauthorized use of any GoGuardian Offering shall not be subject to arbitration under this Section 13.2.1. In addition, you or GoGuardian may choose to pursue a Claim in small claims court where jurisdiction and venue over you and GoGuardian otherwise qualify for such small claims court and where the Claim does not include a request for any type of equitable relief.
Authority of Arbitrator In binding arbitration, the arbitrator shall have the authority (a) to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any Claim; (b) to award monetary damages; and (c) to grant any non-monetary remedy or reli ef available to an individual under Applicable Law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and this 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.
Confidentiality All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. Both parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent you or GoGuardian from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
13.2.2 Class Action Waiver
YOU AND GOGUARDIAN 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 GoGuardian are instead electing that all Claims not otherwise resolved informally as permitted above shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. 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.

The foregoing does not affect your statutory rights.
This Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by you without GoGuardian’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Where GoGuardian requires that you or any Authorized User provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for ensuring that GoGuardian is provided with the most current e-mail address for the designated Authorized User. In the event that the last e-mail address provided to GoGuardian is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of receiving any notices required/ permitted by this Agreement, GoGuardian’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice to such address will nonetheless constitute effective notice.
