Learnexus Terms and Conditions

Last Updated: March 1, 2024



By using our site, you indicate that you accept these terms and conditions, and the referenced policies, and that you agree to abide by them.

Please read these Terms carefully before using this website. This Agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes between users and Learnexus, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limits the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute.  

1. What We Do

Learnexus Inc. and Learnexus Enterprises LLC operate Learnexus, a platform linking Freelancers to Employers.


Services are offered on Learnexus through either Offers, which are fixed–price services; or custom projects, which can be fixed price, price per hour or price per item. Services delivered in these ways on Learnexus are collectively referred to in these terms as “projects”. Whether or not a project is offered and/or accepted is entirely at the discretion of the Freelancer/Employer. Learnexus has no control over this process. Services are provided by Freelancers directly to Employers, who determine the deliverables, price and all other requirements. The Freelancer must provide regular progress updates and respond within one (1) business day to all messages from the Employer, in the Platform. Freelancers must deliver work within the delivery times either defined in their Offer or agreed with the Employer upfront in the Platform for custom projects. Freelancers’ rankings will be penalized for late delivery. Freelancers must fulfill their projects and Employers agree to pay for work delivered. Users will be charged for cancellations or refunds caused by them, without a valid business reason. As work on the project is completed and approved, an invoice will be submitted to the Employer. Freelancers must not request payment upfront before work has been completed. Employers must pay within the payment terms stated in their agreements with Learnexus.


Learnexus IS NOT A BANK and only holds funds for the purposes of settling fees related to the provision of services and specific invoices. We strongly recommend that all users do not hold dormant balances on the platform. No user is permitted to hold a dormant balance on the platform for more than 30 days. Learnexus reserves the right to apply Admin Fees or to otherwise make adjustments to dormant balances until they are withdrawn or reach a zero balance. Funds held by Learnexus on the platform are not insured nor covered by any financial services compensation scheme or any other government agency program providing for the protection of deposited funds. Learnexus holds the funds in a separate client account.



Learnexus acts as an agent of payment between the Employer and Freelancer. In return for full invoice payment by the Employer for the project, Learnexus agrees to discharge the Employers obligations relating to debts owed to the Freelancer under this agreement. Learnexus agrees to make such funds available to the Freelancer within ten (10) calendar days, subject to fraud prevention and anti-money laundering procedures. Freelancers are able to withdraw funds subject to the setting up of a valid withdrawal mechanism. Learnexus takes its obligations to prevent fraud and money laundering seriously and reserves the right to delay payments to Freelancers if fraud or money laundering is suspected. All payments for work completed must be remitted via Learnexus unless Learnexus has given its express written permission otherwise in relation to a specific payment or invoice; attempts to pay outside of Learnexus will lead to remedial actions including without limitation, immediate account suspension. Users must immediately report to Learnexus any offers to pay outside of Learnexus made by their Employer or requests for payment outside of Learnexus by any Freelancer.



Once payment has been made, Employers are granted rights to use, and ownership of, all delivered work.



For purposes of service messages, notices, offers and news about Learnexus, Users receive alerts on certain pages and emails to the email addresses associated with their accounts. If you do not want to receive newsletters, announcements, or other communications and/or services from our Site, please do not opt-in for those communications or services at the time of registration. If you have opted-in and, at a later time, wish to opt-out, please click on the relevant link inserted in our communications. In every “Interesting and Important” e-mail communication sent to you, we provide you the opportunity to discontinue receiving future communications (i.e., unsubscribe). Simply follow the unsubscribe process or directions provided in these emails should you wish to cease receiving them. Users cannot opt-out from essential emails (such as emails transmitting an invoice or communicating an Employer request for a refund).


2. Learnexus User Accounts

To access the full Learnexus site, Users have to register for an account, provide accurate and complete information, and keep their account information updated. Both Employers and Freelancers undergo the same account registration process.

Each account must be a personal account, but Users may trade as a sole trader, company or any other legal entity (whether incorporated or unincorporated).

Users cannot register for more than one account.

Learnexus reserves the right to restrict your access, temporarily or indefinitely block your account, stop any projects you have in progress, warn other Employers and Freelancers of your actions or issue you a warning if:

(1) you breach these terms and conditions or the policies reference herein; (2) we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us; or (3) we believe that your actions may cause any loss or liability to our Users or to us.

Users are solely responsible for any activity that occurs on their account, unless it is a result of actions beyond their control (such as hacking or theft of password when Users have taken reasonable steps to keep their password secure). Users may never use another person’s user account or registration information for the Website.

You confirm that you are not economically barred/limited under sanctions rules of any country worldwide. If your circumstances change causing you to be included in such lists, please cease using Learnexus immediately.


3. Project Delivery 

Project Offers

On purchase of an Offer the Employer will need to provide their requirements (as specified in the Offers description page) in the Platform so that the Freelancer can get started.

Once the requirements are provided in the Platform by the Employer, the Freelancer must:

(1) respond in the Platform within one (1) business day to confirm work has started otherwise the Employer may request a cancellation;

(2) provide regular progress updates in the Platform and respond within one (1) business day to all messages from the Employer;

(3) complete the project within the delivery timescales indicated in their Offer description including handover of all deliverables in the Platform. 

(4) understand that late delivery, or non-delivery, will negatively affect the Freelancer’s rankings on Learnexus.

All direct communication between Employer and Freelancer must go via the Platform to keep both parties protected in case of a Dispute.

Once the Offer has been completed and approved, an invoice will be submitted to the Employer and:

(1) the Employer is then able to leave feedback for the Freelancer, after which funds will be automatically released to the Freelancer as payment;


(2) if the Employer does not leave feedback for the Freelancer funds will be automatically released to the Freelancer as payment after ten (10) calendar days; and

(3) if funds are released to the Freelancer in accordance with (1) or (2) above, Learnexus and the Freelancer will be entitled to detrimentally rely upon the fact that the Employer is satisfied with the project and does not have a dispute of any kind in relation to the project. The Employer agrees that they will not file a dispute or seek to reverse payment through their credit card provider, bank, or Stripe in any such circumstance.


Custom Projects

Payment for custom projects are either agreed as fixed price, price per item or as a per hour rate project:

(1) for a per hour rate, custom project the Employer agrees to pay based on the time spent, not on the real or perceived quality or value of any deliverables provided. The Freelancer must provide the Employer, upon request, with a breakdown of their billed hours as evidence of time spent on any such per hour, custom project;

(2) for a fixed–priced custom project the Employer agrees to pay based on deliverables. The parties must agree upfront in the Platform whether or not to divide the project into milestones, with associated milestone payments. If milestones have not been agreed in advance of any project, then the custom project will only be invoiced upon full completion of all deliverables; and

(3) for price per item custom project the Employer agrees to pay for all items delivered.


The Employer must provide their detailed requirements in the Platform so that the Freelancer can get started. These requirements should include (but need not be limited to):

(1) timeframe for delivery of the project or milestones;

(2) description of any subjective elements of the project like aesthetics providing similar examples for use by Freelancer as a guide;

(3) breakdown of all expected deliverables; and

(4) any other expectations for the work.

Employers are encouraged to provide as much detail as possible in their requirements for any project.  Freelancers are encouraged to clarify their understanding of any Employer requirements prior to beginning any project.

Once requirements have been received from the Employer, the Freelancer must:

(1) respond in the Platform within one (1) business day to confirm commencement of work. Failing to respond within one (1) business day may mean that the Employer requests a cancellation;

(2) provide regular progress updates in the Platform and respond within one (1) business day to all Platform messages from the Employer; and

(3) complete the project, including handover of all deliverables in the Platform, within the delivery timescales agreed with the Employer.

Additional requirements:

(1) if missing a previously agreed deadline is unavoidable, then the Freelancer must inform the Employer immediately in the Platform and provide a revised delivery date;

(2) failing to deliver the work within agreed timescales, or repeatedly revising previously agreed deadlines, may mean the Employer requests a cancellation; and

(3) Late delivery or non-delivery of a project will negatively affect the Freelancer’s rankings on Learnexus.

All direct communication between Employer and Freelancer should go via the Platform to keep both parties protected in case of a Dispute.

As work on the Custom project is completed and approved (or an agreed milestone has been reached and approved), an invoice will be submitted to the Employer:

(1) the fees charged in the Invoice should be as has been explicitly agreed upfront in the Proposal. If requirements/scope change materially during a custom project, the Freelancer may need to propose a change to a previously agreed price in order to be compensated for additional work necessitated by such requirement/scope changes. Any such price change must be explicitly agreed in the Platform before any extra work is undertaken so that the Employer can confirm whether they wish to proceed with the additional requirements/scope for the extra cost;

(2) the Employer must pay the Invoice within the payment terms stated in their agreements with Learnexus;


(3) if the Employer does not pay the Invoice, Learnexus will take further actions to obtain payment and may, temporarily or permanently, restrict the Employer’s account; and

(4) if the Employer pays the invoice, Learnexus and the Freelancer will be entitled to detrimentally rely upon the fact that the Employer is satisfied with the project and does not have a dispute of any kind in relation to the project. The Employer agrees that they will not file a dispute or seek to reverse payment for any such project through their credit card provider, bank, or Stripe.


Per Hour Contracts

Payment for Per Hour Contracts is set on a per hour rate project using the per hour rate as stated on the Freelancer’s Proposal at the time of the Per Hour Contract setup. The Employer agrees to pay based on the time spent, not on the real or perceived quality or value of any deliverables provided.

On acceptance of a Per Hour Proposal and upon a hire request through the Platform, the Employer must place a valid payment method on file and give authorization to Learnexus to charge it repeatedly, per Learnexus’ Terms and Conditions to provide payment to Freelancer.

Invoices will be automatically generated and submitted to the Employer by the Platform according to the number of hours tracked and completed by the Freelancer and approved by the Employer at the per hour rate of the Per Hour Contract.

Upon invoice submission:

(1) the Employer must pay the Invoice within the payment terms stated in their agreements with Learnexus; and

(2) if the Employer does not pay the Invoice, Learnexus will take further actions to obtain payment and may, temporarily or permanently, restrict the Employer’s account.


Protection for Freelancers

In the rare event that an Employer refuses payment for legitimate services performed by a Freelancer, Learnexus will provide limited payment protection to the Freelancer as mentioned below (“Per Hour Payment Protection”). Per Hour Payment Protection will be provided only if all of the following criteria are met:

(1) Employer must have an Account in good standing and at least one valid and authenticated payment method lodged with Learnexus, and Employer must have approved hours submitted for payment by the Freelancer.

(2) Freelancer’s Account must be in good standing;

(3) The number of hours billed must not exceed the weekly limit of hours if such limit is defined in the Per Hour Contract; and

(4) Within ten (10) calendar days after hours are approved and submitted for payment, if the hours are rejected by Employer, the Freelancer must submit a dispute specifically identifying the details of the work that Freelancer maintains should be paid.

Per Hour Payment Protection is available with a maximum rate per hour protected by Learnexus to Freelancer the lesser of:

(1) the rate defined in the Per Hour Contract terms;

(2) the usual per hour rate billed by Freelancer on the Site across all Employers; and

(3) the going rate for the same skills on the Site in Freelancer’s geographic area (such determination to be made in Learnexus’ sole discretion).


Protection for Employers

Learnexus will adjust the invoice to Employer for work that is not clearly related to either the project requirements or Employer instructions in the Platform and within the hours authorized for the week, subject to and conditioned on the following terms:

(1) Employer must have an Account in good standing and at least one valid and authenticated payment method lodged with Learnexus, and Employer must agree to pay for hours submitted by the Freelancer and approved by Employer;

(2) Freelancer’s Account must be in good standing; and

(3) The Employer must reject the invoice within ten (10) calendar days of such invoice being submitted, identifying the time billed and attaching screenshots of the Freelancer’s work that show materials or work which are not clearly related to either the project requirements or Employer instructions in the Platform.



All Freelancers on Learnexus must strive to deliver a high standard of work, appropriately meeting the Employer’s needs.

Specifically, Freelancers must ensure that all deliverables:

(1) are error free;

(2) fully address each of the Employer’s defined requirements;

(3) are a complete set of deliverables as defined in the Offer description, or as agreed in the Platform, as part of the requirements for custom projects; and

(4) for Offers and projects, are of a standard consistent with the level of expertise indicated in the Freelancer’s profile and proposals.



Each of the Employer and Freelancer shall ensure that: (a) the Employer and Freelancer decide on the type of project, Hourly, custom or fixed price; and (b) they determine the terms and conditions of projects, including deliverables, any specific requirements, and for “custom or fixed price projects,” the price, directly between them.

Subject to this being varied as part of the Service Contract, ownership in and to any materials and or deliverables arising from a project and any intellectual property rights therein, will be assigned to the Employer upon successful payment. If the Employer and Freelancer wish to include any special terms in the contract (for example, in relation to the ownership of the work produced, ownership of intellectual property rights or special rights of termination), the Employer and Freelancer should negotiate and document these terms in the project Platform.

Subject to variation in the Service Contract, the terms and conditions of each project shall be deemed to incorporate a term that in consideration of the fee paid for the project the Freelancer thereby assigns to the Employer absolutely with full title guarantee the following rights throughout the world:

(1) the entire copyright and all other rights in the nature of copyright subsisting in the project;

(2) any database right subsisting in the project; and

(3) all other rights in the project of whatever nature, whether now known or created in the future, to which the Freelancer is now, or at any time after the date of Commencement of the project may be, entitled by virtue of the laws in force in the United States and in any other part of the world.

In each of the foregoing cases, such assignment shall be for the whole term including any renewals, reversions, revivals and extensions and together with all related rights and powers arising or accrued, including the right to bring, make, oppose, defend, appeal and obtain relief (and to retain any damages recovered) in respect of any infringement, or any other cause of action arising from ownership, of any of these assigned rights, whether occurring before, on, or after the date of Commencement of the project.

You promise that:

(1) you are able to; pay for the services if you are an Employer, and perform the services, if you are a Freelancer;

(2) you are not in breach of any applicable laws, rules or regulations or obligations to any other person (“Limitations”) and your performance of your obligations pursuant to these Terms and Conditions will not cause you to be in breach of any such Limitations;

(3) you have made, and will make, all required legal and tax filings related to any project. If relevant, you will file all necessary legal documentation relating to your self-employment required by any governmental body, and pay all applicable taxes including without limitation other income tax and national insurance; and

(4) you shall not (and shall not permit) any third party to either take any action or upload, download, post, submit or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any Content, project, or Proposal on or through the services Learnexus provides, including without limitation any User Content, that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other right of any other person or entity or violates any law or contractual duty.


4. Payments

Payments are made as described in Section 3, for a project agreed by the Employer and successfully completed. Employers must pay within the payment terms stated in their agreements with Learnexus.


Learnexus provides payment features solely to simplify the payment process. Use of the features does not alter the nature of the relationship between Learnexus and its Users or between Employers and Freelancers.

All payments by Employer must be processed through Learnexus as described in Section 3, both for work sourced on Learnexus and for any subsequent work between the Employer and Freelancer, either for the same project or additional projects. A Freelancer may seek express written permission from Learnexus to allow payment by alternative means for a specific invoice or payment if the Freelancer intends to institute proceedings or pursue legal action against the Employer.

Payment (or attempt to gain payment) outside of Learnexus is a breach of these terms and conditions unless the prior express written consent of Learnexus has been obtained. Such payment (or attempt to gain such payment) will lead to temporary and/or permanent suspension of the Employer and/or Freelancer’s account. The Freelancer shall be liable for any loss of business and legal expenses incurred related to Learnexus seeking to recover fees paid outside of Learnexus. Learnexus reserves the right to debit funds held in the Freelancer’s Account in order to recover any such lost fees. Moreover, Learnexus will not mediate any disputes or be liable to either the Employer or Freelancer for either of their loss of business as a result of violation of this clause. Users shall report attempts or offers to make payment outside of Learnexus by their Employer or Freelancer, as the case may be, to Learnexus immediately.

Payments to Freelancers are routinely checked by Learnexus for fraud prevention purposes. Learnexus aims to process these payments and credit funds to the Freelancer’s Learnexus User Account within ten (10) calendar days, however Learnexus reserves the right to take up to twenty (20) calendar days to credit any such payment to Freelancer’s account.

To withdraw funds from their Learnexus User Account a Freelancer needs to request a withdrawal to an authorized withdrawal account. An “authorized withdrawal account” can be:

(1) a bank account under the user’s name as registered on user’s profile;


Learnexus processes payments daily and will send the money to the Freelancer via their selected payment preference. Once Learnexus has processed payments, they are then subject to timescales imposed by the banking clearing system (ACH in the United States).

For security reasons, Learnexus reserves the right to request additional information from Employers and Freelancers, including original documents, and to verify documents with issuing institutions. Therefore, we reserve the right to request the following proofs of identity:

• a copy of a Government issued ID (Passport, Driver’s License or National ID Card); and

• a copy of a recent utility bill showing your name and address (less than 3 months old);

For credit/debit card users (one of the following):

• a copy of the front and back of the card used. For Security Compliance we recommend that you blank out the central 8 digits of the card number digits, and the last three digits from the number on the back; and/or

• Credit or Debit Card Bank Statement of the card used on your Learnexus User account (less than 3 months old). For Security Compliance you must blank out the central 8 digits of the card number digits.

For international Bank transfers, credit to the beneficiary may be delayed by factors such as local bank holidays, delays by an intermediary bank or other local conditions. Please note that some countries have been designated as “slow-to-pay” countries, and transfers made to those countries may take several days or even weeks in crediting the receiving account.

Learnexus IS NOT A BANK and only holds funds for the purposes of settling the provision of services and specific invoices of Freelancers. We strongly recommend that all users do not hold balances on the platform. Learnexus will endeavor to ensure that the funds in the Learnexus User Account are available to the User in accordance with these Terms and Conditions but do not guarantee that they will be available to the User in circumstances which are unforeseen or beyond our control.

If Learnexus has to return funds to the Employer due to the Employer (contrary to these Terms and Conditions) filing a dispute or requesting a payment be reversed through its credit card provider, bank, or Stripe, then Learnexus will be entitled to recover any such amount from the Freelancer’s Learnexus User Account (and if insufficient monies are in the Freelancer’s Account), credit card or other previously made payment method if available. If Learnexus is unable to recover the amount returned to the Employer from the Freelancer in full, then the Freelancer agrees to pay to Learnexus any outstanding sums within 48 hours of Learnexus making a request for such payment.


5. Leaving Feedback

When the project is completed and the Freelancer has been paid, both parties are asked to provide both qualitative feedback and a rating from 1-5 for the other party. This rating influences each User’s ranking on Learnexus. In order for a user to read a received review, they have to submit their feedback as well. A review (feedback) is published on the member profile page when both parties (Employer and Freelancer) leave their feedback within the first 60 calendar days since invoice payment (funds released / amount paid). In case 60 calendar days have passed, any submitted review is disclosed and users that haven’t left any review will no longer be able to do so.

Both parties should complete the feedback honestly. Users must not falsify feedback, manipulate or coerce another User by threatening negative feedback or offer incentives in exchange for feedback. Any attempts of this nature should be reported immediately to Learnexus.

Feedback comments that are reported to us as defamatory, abusive or offensive will be reviewed and may be removed at our discretion.


6. Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations of A Project

After the Commencement of a project, Employer may request a cancellation if Employer has paid for all work that was completed by the Freelancer and approved by Employer. Employer may notify Learnexus of the cancellation by using the Platform.



Requesting A Refund

An Employer can request a refund using the “Submit Dispute” action in the Platform and specifying a reason for such request.

Learnexus will process refund requests subject to a review of the reason provided for the refund request and circumstances related thereto to ensure that both Employer and Freelancer have complied with these terms and conditions, and that the purpose of the refund is not to avoid any of the parties’ obligations under these terms and conditions. If Learnexus reasonably believes that the parties have not complied with these terms and conditions or are seeking to avoid any such obligations Learnexus shall not be obliged to make the requested refund.


Refund and Cancellation Consequences

Users are strictly discouraged from causing undue cancellations and refunds. Users understand and agree that refunds will impact Users standing in the Learnexus marketplace as follows:

(1) where the conduct or failure to perform of the Freelancer is the cause for the refund (for example, due to no response, poor quality of work or cancellation of the project by Freelancer), it will negatively impact their Freelancer status and rankings on the Site;

(2) where the Employer’s conduct gives rise to the refund (for example, an early cancellation due to a change in their business needs) it will negatively impact their Employer status on the Site; and

(3) multiple refunds attributed to a User may lead to temporary and/or permanent restrictions on their account.


7. Disputes

Learnexus encourages our Freelancers and Employers to try and resolve any disagreements between themselves. However, should that not prove possible Learnexus Customer Services can provide Dispute resolution.

A Dispute can be raised by the Freelancer through a submission on the Site, but it is understood by Users that disputes may only be submitted by Freelancers that have qualified as trusted members of the Learnexus community.

Learnexus may reach out to both parties in order to mediate and try and bring the Dispute to resolution. Users agree to cooperate in good faith with any such mediation efforts.  Learnexus will use commercially reasonable best efforts to make a resolution decision in respect of any such Dispute behalf of both parties within seven (7) calendar days. If a mutual resolution has already been agreed between both parties on the Platform, then the dispute will either be cancelled or resolved in line with such mutual agreement.

In the event of Learnexus having to make a resolution decision related to any Dispute, Learnexus will base its decision solely on the communication found in the Platform, and shall consider:

(1) whether or not both parties are acting in good faith and have tried to resolve the issue between themselves before contacting us, including at least a second attempt made between both parties to complete or rectify the project;

(2) whether or not the project was delivered (or the milestone was met, if the Dispute is for a milestone payment) in accordance with the terms in Section 3;

(3) for Disputes concerning the quality of the work delivered Learnexus will consider whether the Freelancer has met general quality standards as defined in Section 3. Assessments on quality i) related to Employer’s personal or corporate taste, or ii) requiring specialist technical or subject matter expertise, will not form part of the resolution decision; &

(4) whether or not the Employer and Freelancer have complied with these terms and conditions.

In the event of its having to make a resolution decision on behalf of the parties, Learnexus will notify both parties within fourteen (14) calendar days of the submission of the Dispute. The disputed funds shall be disbursed or refunded in accordance with the resolution decision and these terms and conditions. Our involvement with the Dispute ends once the determination in relation to the Dispute has been communicated

Users agree and accept that any payments and/or other actions made by Learnexus in accordance with the resolution of a Dispute are made in good faith and Users shall have no cause of action against Learnexus (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) in respect of a resolution decision or any actions or payments made pursuant to it. Users further agree and accept that they have no right to seek to hold Learnexus liable for an Employer or Freelancer’s alleged actions or failures to act.


8. Learnexus Fees

 Employer Fees

The Employer fees are for the use of Learnexus as an intermediate platform, they do not reflect the outcome of any Freelancer collaboration and will not be refunded.

We may make changes to our service fees from time to time. These changes will be reflected in updated terms issued by us, which will apply to any transactions which take place after the updated fees come into force.


Freelancer Fees

Learnexus reserves the right to charge Freelancers a Service Fee of 25% of project billings.

Bank transfer investigation fee – Please note that if there is a delay in payment from the banking institution, a formal investigation can be initiated with the bank to determine transaction issues. There is a USD $30 fee payable in advance prior to the initiation of a bank transfer investigation.



Admin Fee for Inactive Accounts

Learnexus IS NOT A BANK and only holds funds for the purposes of settling the provision of services and specific invoices of Freelancers. We strongly recommend that all users do not hold dormant balances on the platform. No user is permitted to hold a dormant balance on the platform for more than thirty (30) calendar days. If a User has held dormant funds in their Learnexus User Account for a period of sixty (60) calendar days or more then Learnexus shall charge a monthly administration fee of USD $9.95 for holding those funds on behalf of the User. This fee will be automatically collected each month from the funds in the User’s Learnexus User Account starting from the sixty first (61st) calendar day after the last activity within such User Account. The collection of this fee will end when either i) a transaction occurs in such User Account, ii) the dormant balance is cleared.  Learnexus’ business decision not to collect an Admin Fee from any User Account shall not preclude us from collecting such an Admin Fee from another User Account.


Currency Conversion

If you require a transaction within the Learnexus Site which involves a currency conversion from or into United States Dollars, it will be completed at a foreign exchange rate determined by an official institution, which is adjusted on a regular basis.

Subject to Section 3, the Receiving Party agrees that at all times and notwithstanding any termination or expiration of this Agreement it will hold in strict confidence and not disclose to any third party any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, except as approved in writing by the Disclosing Party, and will use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for no purpose other than the Permitted Use. The Receiving Party will also protect such Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care that the Receiving Party uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no case, less than reasonable care. The Receiving Party will limit access to the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to only those of the Receiving Party’s employees or authorized representatives having a need to know and who have signed confidentiality agreements containing, or are otherwise bound by, confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those contained herein.

(e) was developed by employees or agents of the Receiving Party who had no access to any Confidential Information.

4. Notwithstanding the above, the Receiving Party may disclose certain Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, without violating the obligations of this Agreement, to the extent such disclosure is required by a valid order of a court or other governmental body having jurisdiction, provided that the Receiving Party provides the Disclosing Party with reasonable prior written notice of such disclosure and makes a reasonable effort to obtain, or to assist the Disclosing Party in obtaining, a protective order preventing or limiting the disclosure and/or requiring that the Confidential Information so disclosed be used only for the purposes for which the law or regulation required, or for which the order was issued.

5. The Receiving Party will immediately notify the Disclosing Party upon discovery of any loss or unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.

The Receiving Party recognizes and agrees that nothing contained herein will be construed as granting any property rights, by license or otherwise, to any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, or to any invention or any patent, copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property right that has issued or that may issue, based on such Confidential Information. Neither Receiving Party will make, have made, use or sell for any purpose any product or other item using, incorporating or derived from any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.

8. The Receiving Party will not reproduce the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in any form except as required to accomplish the intent of the services or custom projects.

10. This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed, controlled, interpreted, and defined by and under the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different state. Any disputes under this Agreement may be brought in the state courts and the Federal courts for the county in which Company’s principal place of business is located, and the parties hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue of these courts. This Agreement may not be amended except by a writing signed by both parties.

11. Each Party acknowledges that its breach of this Agreement may cause irreparable damage to the other Party and hereby agrees that the other Party will be entitled to seek injunctive relief under this Agreement, as well as such further relief as may be granted by a court of competent jurisdiction.

12. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a proper authority to be unenforceable or invalid, such unenforceability or invalidity will not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole and, in such event, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.

13. Neither Party will communicate any information to the other Party in violation of the proprietary rights of any third party.


14. The Receiving Party will not export, directly or indirectly, any U.S. technical data acquired pursuant herein, or any products utilizing such data, in violation of the United States export laws or regulations.

13. Disputes Between Users and Learnexus

1. Governing Law

All matters between any guest or a registered user and Learnexus relating to this Agreement, and all matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether sounding in contract, tort, or statute are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles. 

2. Dispute Resolution

Please read this Section carefully. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

Any dispute, claim or controversy between guest or a registered user and Learnexus arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, shall be submitted to and decided by a single arbitrator by binding arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association in the San Francisco, California. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction by either party. The prevailing party in the arbitration proceedings shall be awarded reasonable attorneys’ fees, expert witness costs and expenses, and all other costs and expenses incurred directly or indirectly in connection with the proceedings, unless the arbitrator shall for good cause determine otherwise.

All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. You agree that you may bring claims against Learnexus in arbitration only in your individual capacity and in so doing you hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in a class-action lawsuit or class action arbitration (either as a named-plaintiff or class member), and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, 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. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
