Last updated: 23rd January 2024
If you are under the age of 13, you represent that your legal guardian has reviewed and agreed to the Agreement. If you don’t get your parent or guardian to read and agree to the Agreement, you don’t have permission to use the Service.
If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to these terms and conditions, in which case the terms “you”, “your” or “Member” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these terms and conditions, you must not accept this Agreement and may not use the Service.
1. ACCESS TO THE SERVICES
The Services offered from time to time by Company in connection therewith are owned and operated by Company. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company may offer to provide certain services, as described more fully on the Website, and that have been selected by you, solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. Company may change, suspend, or discontinue the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or Content. Company may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all the Services without notice or liability. Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify this Agreement at any time by posting a notice on the Website and/or Application. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified.
We authorize you, subject to these Terms, to access and use our Services, as defined below, solely for your personal use of the Services, and may not be used for any commercial or other purposes. This license is revocable by us at any time without notice and with or without cause.
You may not use the Services and you may not accept the Terms if you are not of a legal age to form a binding contract and otherwise capable of entering into this agreement. We do allow the use of our Services by children under 13 as a Student but the teachers are responsible for creating the children’s account and sharing login information with them.
2. COLLECTION AND STORAGE OF INFORMATION
To register to use our Services as an Educator, you must provide your name and email address. For YouHue Student users, their Educator will create their account and provide them with a unique class access code and a login code. Additionally, students have the option to log in using their Google accounts. We collect and store certain information to create your and your school’s YouHue profile, which includes but is not limited to your name, email address, and school/organization name. You agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information, and keep your information accurate, current, and complete. If we have reasonable grounds to believe that your information is untrue, we may suspend or terminate your account. Additionally, you represent, warrant, and agree that you (i) possess all rights necessary to provide your User Content and grant the Company the rights in this Agreement, (ii) will comply with the Laws in connection with your use of the Service, and (iii) are solely responsible for providing notices and obtaining consents required by applicable Laws for students to use the Services or to provide User Content, including compliance with the applicable provisions of COPPA when obtaining School Consent.
4. ACCOUNT, PASSWORD AND SECURITY
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your YouHue account name (email address) and password and/or YouHue Student account (class access code and login code) and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account and password. You agree to not hold us liable for any loss or damage arising from or relating to your failure to properly safeguard your account or password. Please immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your YouHue account.
5. STUDENTS UNDER AND OVER THE AGE OF 13
a. Students who have been given access to the Services by their Educator or Parents may use the Service. You may not access or use the Service unless you are given access to the Services by your Educator or Parents.
b. YouHue requires minimal personal information to be used for Student Accounts to be created on the Services: First and Last Name (or First Name and Last Initial, or simply Initials).
c. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) prohibits online service providers from knowingly collecting personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age without verifiable parental consent or notice as applicable (“Consent”) or if their School or Educator chooses to act as the agent of the parent and consent on the parent’s behalf – commonly referred to as “school consent” under COPPA. Children under and over the age of 13 are prohibited from using the Services without Consent. For that reason, we only allow the School or Educator or Parent to create the student account on behalf of the student and let students access their accounts.
6. PARENTS OF CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
a. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child who has an account with us and do not want your child to continue using our Services or you did not receive an email from the child’s School seeking your Consent, you can email us at email@example.com to have that child’s account deleted.

You release Company from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services. The Services may contain, or direct you to websites containing, information that some people may find offensive or inappropriate. Company makes no representations concerning any content contained in or accessed through the Services, and Company will not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality or decency of material contained in or accessed through the Services. Company makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of colors or textures displayed anywhere on the Services, or regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services (including, without limitation, the actual color, texture, size, fit, quality, or use of such products or services). Products and services purchased (whether or not following such recommendations and suggestions) are provided “AS IS” without any warranty of any kind from Company or others unless, with respect to others (only), otherwise made expressly and unambiguously in writing by a designated third party for a specific product or service. The services, content, website, products and services obtained through the website, and any software, are provided on an “as is” basis, without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non- infringement, or that use of the services will be uninterrupted or error-free.

Upon termination of your account, your right to use the Services, access the Application, and any Content will immediately cease. All provisions of this Agreement which, by their nature, should survive termination, shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
15. LAW AND FORUM DISPUTES
This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against us must be resolved by a Federal court located in California, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration paragraph below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
Any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) shall be resolved exclusively by binding non-appearance-based arbitration pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), but the parties do not necessarily intend for the AAA to administer the arbitration. The arbitration will take place in California and the internal laws of the State of California (other than conflicts of laws rules) and of the United States of America shall apply. Part or all of the arbitration may be conducted by telephone or based on written submissions, and will not require the personal appearance of the parties or any witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties. The allocation of costs and fees for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules. If such costs are finally determined to be excessive in a consumer dispute, we will be responsible for paying all arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation in excess of what is deemed reasonable. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator engaged in the practice of law who is mutually agreed upon by the parties or failing such agreement within 14 days from the delivery of the original arbitration demand, each party shall select one arbitrator and the two selected arbitrators shall mutually agree upon the selection of a third arbitrator within 30 days from the delivery of the original arbitration demand. The arbitrator’s decision and award shall be final and binding and may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent a party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief with respect to the infringement, misappropriation or other violation of such party’s intellectual property or other proprietary rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event the foregoing agreement to arbitrate is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable with respect to any claim, dispute, or controversy, then you agree that any such claim, dispute or controversy shall be filed and adjudicated only in the state and federal courts located in California and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of this Agreement.
17. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE AND OUR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, AND LICENSORS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE OUR SERVICES; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH, FROM OR AS A RESULT OF OUR SERVICES; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (IV) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON OUR SERVICES; OR (V) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO US OR OUR SERVICES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO YOU THAT SOMEHOW MAY BE CONNECTED TO YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES. IF YOU USE OUR SERVICES IN A WAY THAT CAUSES US TO BE INCLUDED IN LITIGATION, YOU AGREE TO PAY ALL LEGAL FEES AND COSTS WE INCUR.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD US AND OUR SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS, AND LICENSORS HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIM OR DEMAND, INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES, MADE BY ANY THIRD PARTY DUE TO OR ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES.
The failure of either party to exercise, in any respect, any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Company shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Company’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including “line-noise” interference). If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with Company’s prior written consent. Company may transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Company in any respect whatsoever.

Company has adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act or DMCA (posted at www.lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf). The address of Company’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (“Designated Agent”) is listed at the end of this Section. It is Company’s policy to (a) block access to or remove material that it believes in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users; and (b) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
• A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
• Identification of works or materials being infringed;
• Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that Company is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
• Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;
• A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material identified in (3) is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
• A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
Once Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification is Received by the Designated Agent, it is Company’s policy:
• to remove or disable access to the infringing material;
• to notify the content provider, member, or user that it has removed or disabled access to the material; and
• that repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that Company will terminate access to the Services of such content provider, member or user.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider, member, or user, must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
• A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member or user;
• Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
• A statement that the content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
• Content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Company may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company’s discretion.
