READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM FLATIRON. THIS SECTION WAIVES YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION.
Flatiron and you (collectively the “Parties”) waive all rights to trial before a jury in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this License, the Educational Content, or otherwise arising between the Parties, including, without limitation, any User’s statutorily created or protected rights. With the exception of any action or proceeding brought by Flatiron (or by any of the other Flatiron Entities) in which injunctive relief is sought, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this License and/or the Educational Content shall be settled exclusively by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

This waiver applies to class arbitration and the arbitrator(s) may not consolidate more than one person’s claim. With the exception of any claim by Flatiron (or by any of the other Flatiron Entities) for indemnification or other relief, under no circumstances is an arbitrator authorized to issue an award for, and you hereby waive all rights to claim, punitive damages, liquidated damages, incidental or consequential damages, or attorneys’ fees. The arbitration shall be conducted in State of New York, City of New York, unless the Parties agree otherwise. You hereby acknowledge that you understand the terms of the arbitration clause, and agree to comply with all of its terms and provisions.
Flatiron may freely transfer or assign any portion of its rights or delegate its obligations under this License. You shall not transfer or assign, by operation of law or otherwise, any portion of your rights or delegate your obligations under this License without the prior written consent of Flatiron. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof will be null and void.

No other person or company, with the exception of the Flatiron Entities, will be third party beneficiaries to this License. If any provision of this License is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the other provisions herein, and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Any delay or failure on the part of Flatiron to enforce any rights under this License to which it may be entitled shall not, in any event, be construed as a waiver of the right and privilege to do so at any subsequent time.
This License is subject to change. If you continue to access and use the Educational Content after this License changes, you agree to be bound by such changes. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting. Please check for changes periodically.
