Emtrain® Terms of Service
Please read these Terms carefully before registering for or otherwise using the Services (including if you use the free Emtrain Micro Lessons, described below). These Terms include information about future changes to these Terms, limitations of liability, a class action waiver and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER.
ARBITRATION NOTICE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION SECTION BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
Emtrain provides a platform of online education addressing ethics, respect and inclusion topics.
You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract.
You will only use the Services for your own internal, personal, non-commercial use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services.

Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card account, and you must refer to that agreement and not these Terms to determine your rights and liabilities with respect to your Payment Provider. By providing Emtrain with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Emtrain is authorized to verify information immediately, and subsequently invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to Emtrain hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Emtrain of any change in your billing address or the credit card used for payment hereunder. Emtrain reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on our Site or by e-mail delivery to your organization’s administrator(s).
Any attorney fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in collection of delinquent undisputed amounts shall be the responsibility of and paid for by you.
All fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and Emtrain for the Services until Emtrain accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail or other appropriate means of communication.
You are responsible for any third-party fees that you may incur when using the Services.
If your account is associated with an Enterprise Account Holder, the Enterprise Account Holder may pay fees for your access to the Services. If the Enterprise Account Holder ceases to pay such fees, your access to the Services may be restricted or terminated.

IX. Entire Agreement; Severability
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the subject matter hereof and supersede all proposals and prior discussions and writings between the parties with respect thereto. No failure or delay in enforcing any right or exercising any remedy will be deemed a waiver of any right or remedy. Each provision of these Terms is a separately enforceable provision. If any provision of these Terms is determined to be or becomes unenforceable or illegal, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent necessary in order for these Terms to remain in effect in accordance with its terms as modified by such reformation.
Emtrain has the right to terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Services or the Site for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. Emtrain has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.
Sections III – X, XIV and XV shall survive the termination of these Terms.
Emtrain reserves the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will place a notice on our site located at https://emtrain.com/, send you an email, and/or notify you by some other means. If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, you will be deemed to have agreed to all of the changes. Except for changes made by Emtrain as described herein, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Emtrain’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without your consent.
XII. Force Majeure
Emtrain shall not be liable to you for any delay or failure of Emtrain to perform its obligations hereunder if such delay or failure arises from any cause or causes beyond the reasonable control of Emtrain. Such causes shall include, but are not limited to, acts of God, floods, fires, loss of electricity or other utilities, labor strike, or delays by you in performing any requirements hereunder.
XIV. Arbitration; Waiver of Jury Trial; Class Action Waiver
- Any dispute, controversy or claim arising under, out of or relating to these Terms and any subsequent amendments of these Terms, including, without limitation, its formation, validity, binding effect, interpretation, performance, breach or termination, as well as non-contractual claims, shall be submitted to arbitration before the JAMS (“JAMS”) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes. The arbitrator shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. The place of arbitration shall be San Francisco, California. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The arbitrator may award any form of individual or equitable relief, including injunctive relief. Any award will be final and conclusive to the parties and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief at any time.
- YOU AND EMTRAIN WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. In any litigation between you and Emtrain over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND EMTRAIN WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
- ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CLIENT OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CLIENT OR USER. If however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor Emtrain is entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in (E) below.
- You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: 1731 J St #200, Sacramento, CA 95811 postmarked within thirty (30) days of first accepting these Terms. You must include (i) your name and residence address, (ii) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account, and (iii) a clear statement that you want to opt out of these Terms’ arbitration agreement.
- If you send the opt-out notice in (D), and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or Emtrain to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and Emtrain agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, San Francisco County, California, or the federal district in which that county falls.
- If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration Agreement section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Emtrain.
All notices regarding these Terms and the Services will be provided in writing to you by e-mail using the contact information provided by you upon registration or by posting on the Site. Notice will be deemed given one (1) business day after e-mail transmission from Emtrain, or two (2) business days after the date of posting.
