Please see Section 11 for definitions of certain capitalized terms used in these Terms.

1. Access to the Interfima Learning Services.

1.1 Generally.

You may access and use the Interfima Learning Services in accordance with these Terms. Additional terms may apply to certain Interfima Learning Classes, and any such additional terms will be set forth in a separate agreement between Interfima and you. You agree and acknowledge that you have entered into these Terms, and will use the Interfima Learning Services, as part of your business or professional activities, and not as a consumer or for personal use. Interfima Learning Services may be provided to you by Interfima or our Experts, contractors or agents. To access the Interfima Learning Services, you must register via the Interfima Site and agree to these Terms. If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of an entity, you will provide Interfima with enrollment information for all Clients via the Interfima Site or as otherwise requested by Interfima. We may add, remove or change the Interfima Learning Services described on the Interfima Site from time to time. We will not make any material change to an Interfima Class for which you have already paid a registration fee without notifying you at least five business days before the scheduled start date of the Class.

1.2 Your Responsibilities.

You are responsible for all activities that occur under Interfima accounts you use or create in connection with any Interfima Learning Classes, regardless of whether the activities are undertaken by you, your employees or a third party (including your contractors or agents).

2. Fees and Payment.

2.1 Fees.

You will pay us all applicable fees and charges for use of and access to the Interfima Learning Services as described on the Interfima Site using one of the payment methods we support. All amounts payable under these Terms will be made without setoff or counterclaim, and without any deduction or withholding.

2.2 Cancellation; Refunds.

Interfima may cancel an Interfima Learning Class in its discretion at any time up to and including the date of the Interfima Learning Class. If Interfima cancels any Interfima Learning Class for which you have already paid a registration fee, we will either (a) refund the amount you paid for such Interfima Learning Class or (b) offer the same Interfima Learning Class to you on an alternative date. In the case you want to cancel the class for which you have already paid a registration fee, you can only reschedule it by selecting a different date and time from the class calendar on the control panel of the class. You can reschedule your registration for an Interfima Learning Class at least ten business days before the scheduled start date of the Class. Refunds are not eligible after the end of the class. 

2.3. Taxes.

All fees and charges payable by you are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties (collectively, “Taxes”), including VAT and applicable sales tax. Interfima may charge and you will pay applicable Taxes that Interfima is legally obligated to collect from you.

You will provide such information to us as reasonably required to determine whether we are obligated to collect such Taxes from you. If you are legally entitled to an exemption from any sales, use, or similar transaction tax, you are responsible for providing us with legally-sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction. We will apply the tax exemption certificates to charges under your account occurring after the date we receive the tax exemption certificates.

In cases where Interfima is required to charge Taxes, Interfima will issue an invoice complying with the relevant tax invoicing regulations applicable at that time.

If any deduction or withholding is required by law, you will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, you will provide us with documentation showing that the withheld and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way arising from this Expert Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.

The governing law of this arbitration agreement shall be English law or by the parties’ express choice of governing law upon notification. To begin an arbitration proceeding, the expert must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Interfima. The arbitration will be conducted under the rules of International Arbitration. Payment of filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. We will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. The parties may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or at a mutually agreed location. Interfima and the expert agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a Session, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration Interfima and the expert waive any right to a jury trial.
