The School does not warrant that any of the materials on its web site are accurate, complete, or current.

You shall indemnify the School and its owners, agents, and representatives (each an “Indemnified Party”) against any claims, actions, damages, liabilities, losses, or costs, including attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in the settlement or avoidance of any such claim, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnified Party resulting from or arising in connection with: (i) your access to or use of the Service or Content, or (ii) any breach or alleged breach by you of any of your representations, warranties, covenants, or obligations under these Terms.

You and the School agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms will be settled by final and binding arbitration using the English language and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect. Arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under the Terms will take place on an individual basis. Class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to the Terms, you and the School are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action or class arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator. You may instead assert your claim in “small claims” court, but only if your claim qualifies, your claim remains in such court, and your claim remains on an individual, non-representative, and non-class basis. Payment for any and all reasonable AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the Service and supersede all prior understanding, whether written or oral. Except as provided in these Terms, no term or condition of the Terms may be amended or deemed waived, except by a writing signed by the parties that refers to the Terms. If any term or part of a term of the Terms is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of the Terms will remain in effect. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Oregon, without regard to conflict of laws principles. Any claim or arbitration arising out of these Terms, including tort claims, must be resolved in Clackamas County, Oregon.
