permitted under these Terms, then you and GradePro agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the
state courts in Montgomery County, Texas, and federal courts located within the Houston Division of the

we make no representation that Materials included in the Service are appropriate or available for use in
General. These Terms, together with the Additional Terms, and any other agreements
expressly incorporated by reference into these Terms, are the entire and exclusive understanding and
agreement between you and GradePro regarding your use of the Service. You may not assign or transfer these
Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our
prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. The failure to
require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time
after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these
Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section
headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any
provision. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be

Upon termination of these Terms, Sections 3-5, 7(b), 7(c), 7(e), 8-31, along with the GradePro
Dispute Resolution and Arbitration.
Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and GradePro in the most
expedient and cost effective manner, you and GradePro agree that every dispute arising in connection
with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration, to the fullest extent permitted under
applicable law. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral
arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be
subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court
can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims (including, without limitation,
substantive claims and threshold questions of the applicability and scope of this Section 25) arising
out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, products
liability, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises
during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE
TERMS, YOU AND GRADEPRO ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS
ACTION, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 25(a), nothing in these Terms will be
deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual
action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state,
or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (iv) to
file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Arbitrator. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, any arbitration
between you and GradePro will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the
Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes
(collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified
by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online
at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879, or by contacting GradePro.
Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written
notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature
required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic
mail (“Notice”). GradePro’s address for Notice is: GradePro, Inc., Attention: Legal Department,
1350 Rayford Park Rd., Suite A, Spring, TX 77386. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of
the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will
make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to
do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or GradePro may commence an arbitration
proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or GradePro must not
be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, GradePro will
reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which
case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place
at a location to be agreed upon in Montgomery County, Texas, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less,
you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted
to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person
hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the
arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous
or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you
agree to reimburse GradePro for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation
to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the
arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and
conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and
resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the
proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the
No Class Actions. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND
GRADEPRO AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL
CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both you and GradePro agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one
person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If GradePro makes any future change to
this arbitration provision, other than a change to GradePro’s address for Notice, you may reject the
change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to GradePro’s address for Notice, in
which case you are no longer permitted to use the Service and this arbitration provision, as in effect
immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will survive.
Opt-Out Procedure. You can choose to reject this Arbitration Agreement by mailing us a
written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”) in accordance with the terms of this Section. For new
users, the Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than 30 days after the date you use the Service
for the first time. You must mail the Opt-Out Notice to GradePro, Inc., Attention: Legal Department,
1350 Rayford Park Rd., Suite A, Spring, TX 77386. The Opt-Out Notice must state that you do not agree to
the arbitration agreement and must include your name, address, phone number, and the username and school
district used for the Service to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to
be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the arbitration agreement. If you opt
out of the arbitration agreement, GradePro will likewise not be bound by these arbitration provisions.
All other terms of these Terms will continue to apply. Opting out of the arbitration agreement has no
effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us. GradePro
users who accepted a previous version of these Terms that included an arbitration agreement, and who did
not timely opt out of that arbitration agreement, remain bound by the last arbitration agreement that
they accepted. Upon receipt of a valid Opt-Out Notice, GradePro will provide the opting out user with a
copy of the arbitration agreement from the last version of the Terms that the user accepted, if any
Enforceability. If Section 25(f) is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of
this Section 25 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 25 (except this Section
25(i)) will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and
venue described in Section 23 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
Claims. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, no action arising out of, in
connection with, or relating to these Terms shall be brought by you more than one (1) year after the accrual
of the cause of action. This period shall not be extended for any reason, except by the written consent of
both parties. All statutes or provisions of law which would toll or otherwise affect the running of the
period of limitation are hereby waived and no such statute or provision of law shall operate to extend the
period limited in this paragraph, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.
Consent to Electronic Communications. By using the Service, you consent to receiving
certain electronic communications from us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other
communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements,
including that those communications be in writing.
Export. You may not use the Service if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of
sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using the
Services. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods,
software, technology, and services.

limitations in these Terms are intended to be only as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of
your state of residence. If you are a California resident, under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, you
may contact the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department
of Consumer Affairs in writing at 1625 N. Market Blvd., Suite S-202, Sacramento, California 95834, or by
