11.1  YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND SAVE HARMLESS MOOTIVATION and each of its directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all losses, damages, injuries, liabilities, obligations and costs (including without limitation legal costs on a solicitor-and-client basis) that may be incurred by or claimed against Mootivation as a result of or arising out of any and all uses of the IP Rights, the App or the Design Platform by You or your Students, including uses contrary to these Terms of Use and any and all breaches by You of these Terms of Use.  You further acknowledge that a breach by You of these Terms of Use may cause Mootivation irreparable harm for which damages would not be an adequate remedy and, therefore, agree that, in addition to all other rights and remedies, Mootivation will be entitled to injunctive relief against a continuing or further breach by You without the necessity of proof of actual damages.  The provisions hereof will survive the termination of Your access to the Product.

12.  Termination

12.3  Sections 8, 9, 10 and 11 of these Terms of Use will survive the termination of these Terms of Use for any reason.

13.  No Agency

14.  Choice of Law

14.1  You agree that all matters relating to these Terms of Use, including the use of the Product, shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without reference to conflict of law principles, save and except to the extent that applicable law provides otherwise.  Mootivation and You each agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of British Columbia and to waive any objections based upon venue.

15.  Privacy Protection for Children

15.1  Our App is approved for use by minors under 18 years of age (precisely, 13~18). Congress and the FTC have taken special steps to assure that children under 13 years of age don’t share their personal information on the Internet without the express approval of their parents. Congress passed the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act in 1998 and the FTC wrote a rule implementing the law. The FTC has taken law enforcement actions against companies that failed to comply with the provisions of the law and has issued a report to Congress assessing how companies have complied with it.

15.2  We comply with the California Eraser Law (a.k.a. Privacy Rights for California Minors in the Digital World) The law defines such a forum, as one “created for the purpose of reaching an audience that is predominately comprised of minors, and is not intended for a more general audience comprised of adults.” 

15.3  Although the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), 15 U.S.C. § 6501–6506, and the FTC’s COPPA Rule, 16 C.F.R. Part 312, regulate children’s privacy and have led to some guidance on when websites are “directed to minors” (as well as on the ways “actual knowledge” of a minor’s status is obtained outside of collecting date-of-birth), COPPA and the FTC’s rules apply only to minors under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are a parent, guardian, teacher, or school official and you learn that a Child under the age of 13 has provided us with Personal Information without consent, please contact us at support@mootivated.com. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will remove that information from our servers within 10 business days.

15.4  If you are using our App in the United States of America, you represent and warrant that you are solely responsible for complying with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), which requires parental consent for online collection of personal information from children under 13. When obtaining Consent, you must provide parents with a copy of our Privacy Policy found here:  https://www.mootivated.com/privacy-policy/.

16.  General

16.1  In these Terms of Use “You” and “Your” means you, your employees and any other person or entity on whose behalf you have the authority to accept these Terms of Use, all of whom shall also be bound by these Terms of Use to the extent permitted by law.

16.2  These Terms of Use, together with Mootivation’s Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between Mootivation and You with respect to Your use of the Product and supersede all previous communications, representations and agreements, whether oral or written, between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, there being no representations, warranties, terms, conditions, undertakings or collateral agreements (express, implied or statutory) between the parties other than as expressly set forth in these Terms of Use.

16.3  If any section (or part thereof) of these Terms of Use is determined to be void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such determination shall not affect the remaining sections (or parts thereof) of these Terms of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect.  Mootivation’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any section of these Terms of Use or any right shall not be construed as a waiver of any such section or right.

16.4  These Terms of Use will enure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and assigns.  Mootivation may assign its rights and duties under these Terms of Use at any time without notice to You.  You may not assign Your rights and duties under these Terms of Use to any individual or entity at any time.

16.5  Any communications to Mootivation in relation to these Terms of Use and/or the App or Design Platform may be made to:
