To confirm your card is valid, Homework Help Services, LLC may initiate a “pending” charge for one dollar (US $1.00) on the account.

Access to Specialists: The Services may include, at our discretion, use of Specialists (who may be individuals or entities) who teach online courses or provide instructional materials. Emergency questions and crisis situations (particularly regarding medical or mental health issues) should be directed immediately by telephone or in-person to qualified professionals (e.g., in the U.S., call 911). The Service is not the appropriate venue to deal with such questions or situations. The laws, regulations, other governing authorities, standards, practices and procedures that apply to your particular question may differ depending on your location and information typically discovered through in-person evaluations or visits.

Expert Answers: Your access to Specialists may include access to individuals or entities who prepare specific answers (“Expert Answers”) to your submitted questions (such individuals and entities may be referred to as “Experts,” which term includes Specialists answering questions regarding academic subjects, as well as other individuals or entities answering questions outside the academic subjects). Specialists choose whether to answer your question at their own discretion.

Accordingly, you agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that relates to or arises out of the Terms of Service or the Services or your use of the Services (a “Claim”) in accordance with the subsections below.
General. You and Homework Help Services, LLC agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration; except that either party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court. Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Disputes if you provide Homework Help Services, LLC with written notice of your desire to do so by email at [email protected] or regular mail at our offices within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms of Service (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you do not provide Homework Help Services, LLC with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth with respect to individual actions in small claims courts. You acknowledge and agree that you and Homework Help Services, LLC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Homework Help Services, LLC otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Legal Disputes” section will be deemed void. This “Legal Disputes” section will survive any termination of these Terms of Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party reserves the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction with respect to any dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights or breach of the User Content and Activities provisions of this Agreement.
Arbitration Rules, Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Section of these Terms of Service. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Michigan and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Homework Help Services, LLC otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Homework Help Services, LLC submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the Limitation of Liability section of these Terms of Service as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration, you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Homework Help Services, LLC will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Homework Help Services, LLC will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
