  6. 6.Subscriptions.

  7. 6.1 Subscription Levels and Pricing. Taylor Method Account holders may utilize the Services and its various features and functionality by subscribing to online access to the Site and the Services (the “Subscription”) and may choose one of several subscription levels (each, a “Subscription Level”).  Description of included features and pricing information for each Subscription Level can be found on the services description and pricing webpage at www.thetaylormethod.com/pricing. 6.2 Subscription Period and Fees.  The Services are offered to you as a monthly Subscription or as a 12-month prepaid Subscription (each, a “Subscription Period”).  Each monthly Subscription requires a one-time initial set-up fee (the “Set-Up Fee”) in the amount effective on the date you subscribe for the Services.  The applicable cost of a monthly Subscription (the “Monthly Fee”) is billed in advance each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Subscription.  You may also purchase 12-month access to Services (the “Prepaid Access”) by paying a one-time fee for the applicable Subscription Level (the “One-Time Fee,” and, together with the Monthly Fee,” the “Subscription Fees”).  You will not be charged the Set-Up Fee if you purchase Prepaid Access immediately upon opening a Taylor Method Account. You must associate a valid credit card or other valid payment method accepted by Taylor Method (the “Payment Method”) with your Taylor Method Account.  Your Monthly Fee payment to Taylor Method will automatically renew each month and the Payment Method associated with your Taylor Method Account will be charged the Monthly Fee for the subsequent month. Upon expiration of your Prepaid Access, you may elect to continue your Subscription on a monthly basis or purchase another Prepaid Access by paying the applicable One-Time Fee. 6.3 Upgrades and Downgrades. You may upgrade your Subscription Level at any time.  You may also upgrade your Subscription Period from monthly access to Prepaid Access at any time.  When you upgrade your monthly Subscription Level, we will charge you the applicable Monthly Fee starting with the month following the month in which you made the election, and for the month in which the election is made we will charge you a prorated difference between the applicable Monthly Fees for the remainder of that month.  When you upgrade Subscription Level of your Prepaid Access, we will charge you a prorated difference between the applicable One-Time Fees for each Subscription for the remainder of the applicable Subscription Period. You can downgrade your Subscription Level only at the time of renewal of your Subscription upon expiration of the then-current Subscription Period.  You may downgrade the Subscription Level of your Prepaid Access by giving us a written notice no later than thirty (30) calendar days prior to the expiration of your then-current Subscription Period.  A downgrade request for your monthly Subscription must be received no later than five (5) business days prior to the end of your then-current month. When you purchase Prepaid Access for your monthly Subscription, we will charge you the One-Time Fee starting with the month following the month in which you made the election, and for the month in which the election is made we will charge you a prorated difference between the applicable Monthly Subscription Fees for the remainder of that month. 6.4 Payment Processing.  If you wish to pay Subscription Fees in accordance with the pricing terms provided herein (each payment, a “Transaction”), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Transaction including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, and your billing address (“Payment Information”).  YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD(S) OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD(S) UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY TRANSACTION. Payments made on the Site are processed by a third-party independent payment processor (“Processor”) that Taylor Method has engaged to process payments on its behalf, and not Taylor Method.  By submitting Payment Information, you authorize the Processor to facilitate the completion of Transactions initiated by you or on your behalf.  Verification of Payment Information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction.  Your Transaction may also be subject to the Processor’s terms of use in addition to the terms and provision of these Terms of Service.  Taylor Method is not liable or responsible for any errors or omissions caused by the Processor or failures on the part of the Processor. 6.5 Cancellation and Refunds.  You may cancel your Subscription at any time upon a written notice which must be received no later than thirty (30) calendar days prior to the end of your then-current month.  If you cancel your Prepaid Access, we will issue you a refund of the pro rata portion of the applicable One-Time Fee for the unused portion of the applicable Subscription Period.  No refunds whatsoever will be issued if your Subscription is terminated by us, or if we block you or deny you access to the Site, the Services or the Materials, for violations of the terms and provisions of these Terms of Service. 6.6 Change in Subscription Fees.  Taylor Method may change the Subscription Fees from time to time (“Fee Changes”), and will communicate any such changes to you. Fee Changes will take effect at the start of the next Subscription Period following the date of the price change. By continuing to use the Services after the Fee Changes take effect, you accept the new Subscription Fees. 6.7 Invalid Payment Method. If we are unable to charge your Subscription Fees to Payment Method associated with your Taylor Method Account due to the expiration, invalidity, or rejection of your Payment Method, we will send you a message at the email address associated with your Taylor Method Account notifying you that our attempt to charge your Subscription Fees to your Payment Method was unsuccessful.  Upon receiving such message, you must log in to your Taylor Method Account and update your Payment Method.  Five (5) days after the unsuccessful attempt to charge your Payment Method, we will make a second attempt.  If such second attempt is unsuccessful, your Subscription will automatically be cancelled as of the date of such second attempt and we will send you a message at the email address associated with your Taylor Method Account notifying you of such cancellation. 6.8 Codes and other Limited Offers. If you have received a code sold by or on behalf of Taylor Method for the time period indicated on your email, card, or paper receipt (“Code”), or if you are accessing the Services through some other limited offer which you received as a gift or purchased from Taylor Method (“Limited Offer”), these Terms of Service apply to your access to the Services.  Any separate sets of terms and conditions presented to you along with the Code or Limited Offer also apply to your access to the Services using the Code or Limited Offer.  If a Code or Limited Offer has been designated for a certain country or countries, the Limited Offer is only redeemable in the country or countries for which it was designated.  Codes and Limited Offers are not redeemable for cash and may not be returned for a cash refund, exchanged, resold or used to purchase other Codes or redeem other Limited Offers. 6.9 Free Trials.  Occasionally, Taylor Method may authorize to offer the use of the Services through free trials for certain qualifying users.  If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be stated in the marketing material describing the particular free trial.  To the extent a free trial is offered in conjunction with purchases of, or payment for, third party products or services, you agree that we will not be liable to you for any claims arising out of or related to your purchase or use of such third party products or services.

  17. 13. Legal Disputes and Arbitration Agreement.

  18. Please Read The Following Clause Carefully – It May Significantly Affect Your Legal Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit in Court 13.1 Initial Dispute Resolution.  We are available by email at info@thetaylormethod.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Site.  Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner.  Taylor Method will work in good faith to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. 13.2 Agreement to Binding Arbitration.  If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to Section 13.1 above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration.  All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Site shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered on a confidential basis by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.  The place of arbitration shall be Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, State of California. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Service, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Service is void or voidable.  The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.  The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.  The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms of Service shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. The AAA’s rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1.800.778.7879.  To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost.  A request for payment of fees should be submitted to AAA along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to AAA.  If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000.  The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain circumstances. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial.  They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. 13.3 Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver.  The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis.  If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above in Section 13.2 shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. 13.4 Exception – Small Claims Court Claims.  Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. 13.5 30-Day Right to Opt-Out.  You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in Sections 13.2, 13.3 and 13.4 by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: Taylor Method Services Incorporated, P.O. Box 395, Pasadena, CA 91102 or by email to info@thetaylormethod.com.  The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of commencing use of the Site, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those Sections.  If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Taylor Method also will not be bound by them. 13.6 Exclusive Venue for Litigation.  To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth in Section 13.2 do not apply, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside).  The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in the Los Angeles County, California for any litigation other than small claims court actions. 13.7 Applicable Law.  You agree that federal laws and the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Service and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Taylor Method.
