Welcome and thank you for your interest in our Service (defined below), operated by Energy Think LLC (“we”, “us”, “our” or “Energy Think”)!
- BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND HAVE TAKEN TIME TO CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS IMPORTANT DECISION. - SECTION 2(C) CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OUR SUBSCRIPTION PLANS, WHICH AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AND REQUIRE PERIODIC AND NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENTS UNTIL CANCELLED BY US OR YOU.
- THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SET FORTH IN SECTION 13 BELOW REQUIRES YOU TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, AND NOT BY A JURY TRIAL.
We may amend the Terms by posting the amended version via the Site. You agree that the foregoing will constitute sufficient and effective notice. By continuing to use the Service after we post an amended version, you confirm your acceptance of the Terms as amended. If you do not agree with any of the changes, you must immediately stop using the Service.
2. Eligibility; User Accounts; Fees and Subscriptions.
a. Who Can Use Our Service
In order to use our Service, you need to be 18 years old or older and have the power to enter a binding contract with us and not be barred from doing so under any applicable laws. By agreeing to these Terms, you represent and warrant that you are not in violation of any of these eligibility requirements. In the event that a person under 18 years old desires to use our Service, we will consider their eligibility on a case-by-case basis and at minimum require their parent or guardian’s consent to the Terms.
b. User Accounts
To access certain content, programming, products, services, features or functionalities, you may need to create an Energy Think user account. You are responsible for all actions taken via your account, and you represent that you are a legal owner of, and that you are authorized to provide us with, your account registration information. You are responsible for safeguarding your login credentials. If you become aware of or suspect any unauthorized use of your account or unauthorized access to your login credentials, you must notify us immediately. You are also responsible for updating your account information.
c. Fees and Subscriptions
Subscription Plans: To access some components of our Service, you may be required to pay fees in accordance with an applicable subscription plan described on the Site or otherwise by us to you at the time you sign up for such plan (“Subscription Plan”). If we change the fees for all or part of the Service, including by adding fees or charges, we will provide you advance notice of those changes.
No Refunds: Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used subscription periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the relevant component of the Service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our users ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
Payment: All fees are in U.S. dollars. We or our third-party payment processor will charge the payment method you specified at the time of purchase. You authorize us and them to charge all fees as described in these Terms and the applicable Subscription Plan to that payment method. If you pay any fees with a credit card, we may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account before your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, we may suspend your access to the Service until we have successfully charged a valid payment method. For some payment methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your payment method. Check with your payment method service provider for details.
Renewal and Cancellation: Your Subscription Plan will continue and automatically renew until cancelled. You must cancel your Subscription Plan before it renews in order to avoid being charged the next periodic subscription fee. We will bill the periodic subscription fee to the payment method you specified at the time of purchase (or to a different payment method if you change your payment information). You authorize us or our third-party payment processor to charge, periodically, on a going-forward basis, and until cancellation by you or us of the Subscription Plan, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums. You may cancel a Subscription Plan by contacting us using the contact information provided at the end of the Terms or through your settings page for the paid feature.

14. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER.
Most disputes that arise out of the use of the Service can be resolved quickly, informally, and with mutual satisfaction by reaching out to us at email@example.com. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users. Energy Think reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and other users.
Disputes between you and Energy Think that cannot be resolved informally are subject to the subsequent paragraphs:
CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVERS. BY ENTERING INTO THE TERMS, YOU AND ENERGY THINK EACH EXPRESSLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. ADDITIONALLY, YOU AND ENERGY THINK AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND THAT THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, JOINT, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CONSOLIDATED PROCEEDING OR ON BASES INVOLVING CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC, OTHER USERS, OR ANY OTHER PERSONS.
Arbitration Agreement: You and Energy Think agree to submit any dispute concerning the Service or Terms that cannot be resolved informally to final and binding arbitration, to be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Rules”) then in effect, provided, however, that you and Energy Think each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's intellectual property rights. In any such case, your waiver of the right to a jury trial and the class action waiver set forth in this Agreement shall continue to apply. You and Energy Think empower the Arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these Terms or the formation of this contract, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of the Terms are void or voidable. If any part of this Arbitration Agreement, other than the class action waiver, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall be enforceable. The class action waiver is non-severable and if it is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the whole Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The parties acknowledge and agree that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce, that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto, and that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of California. Subject to the AAA Rules, the Arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone, or online, will take place in Los Angeles County, California, or in another jurisdiction to which you and Energy Think agree in writing. The Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties. The Arbitrator shall provide a written decision with a statement of reasons if requested by either party. The Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. You and Energy Think agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

We respect the intellectual property of others, and ask that users of the Site do the same. We may remove infringing materials and may terminate the license to use the Site for users who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights, including copyrights. If you believe that one of our users is unlawfully infringing the copyright(s) in a work via the Site, and wish to have the allegedly infringing material removed, please provide the following information in the form of a written notification (pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)) to our designated Copyright Agent:

c. identification of the material on our services that you claim is infringing and that you request us to remove;
d. sufficient information to permit us to locate such material;

Please note that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any misrepresentation of material fact (falsities) in a written notification automatically subjects the complaining party to liability for any damages, costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us in connection with the written notification and allegation of copyright infringement.

b. Severability. You and Energy Think agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, if any portion of these Terms is found unlawful or unenforceable, in whole or in part, that provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such finding and as to such jurisdiction, without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of these Terms, which will be enforced to the fullest extent of applicable law.
c.Choice of Law; Venue. You and Energy Think agree that any action at law or in equity or other dispute of any nature that might arise between you and Energy Think concerning the Service or Terms that is not subject to the arbitration clause in Section 14 shall be governed by the laws of state of California, without giving effect to its conflict or choice of laws principles, and that any such action shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California, and you and Energy Think expressly consent and submit to the exclusive and personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.

They supersede all prior and/or contemporaneous understandings, regardless of the medium (oral, written, or electronic) and practice (custom, policy, course of business, precedent) by which such understandings were communicated.
