1. HOW CLASSPOP! WORKS
Classpop! website is a social and educational scheduling platform that connects professionalchefs, florists, artists, and other instructors together (each, a “Vendor” and collectively the “ Vendors”) with users (each, a “Guest”or “Guests”, collectively with “Vendor” or “Vendors” referred to as “ User” or “Users” or “You ” or “you”) who wish to participate in social and educational events including cooking classes, flower workshops, computer programming classes, etc. (each, an “Event”) Vendors create online profiles which feature the Events along with photos and upcoming dates of these Events (the “Services”).
Vendors may host Events at local restaurants, bars, or other venues (each, a “Venue”). For each Event, the Vendor will create and post the details of the event, the date and time of the Event and details on the Venue. If a Guest decides they want to attend the Vendor’s Event, the Guest can request a reservation to attend the Vendor’s Event.
Upon acceptance of such reservation by the Vendor (such reserved Event, a “ Booked Event”), Classpop! will make available to the Guest, the necessary information for attendance of the Event and charge the Guest’s Member Account (as defined below) in accordance with Section 4 below.
In the event a Vendor chooses to cater a private event (a “ Private Event”), the Guest will provide the Vendor certain information about the desired Private Event, such as the date of the proposed Private Event, number of people who will attend, and any dietary restrictions(in the case of a culinary Event). If a Vendor decides that they are willing to host the proposed Private Event, the Vendor will designate a fee for such Private Event. Upon acceptance of the proposed terms of the Private Event, including the applicable fees, by the Guest, Classpop! will charge the Guest’s Member Account, at which time the Private Event will be deemed a Booked Event.
The Website acts as a platform to allow Vendors and Guests to connect and arrange Events at Venues. You acknowledge and agree that Classpop! is not a party to any arrangement between the Vendor, the Venue and Guest(s), and Classpop! does not manage any Events listed on the Website. As a result, any part of an actual or potential transaction between a Vendor, Venue and Guest, including the quality of the Event, safety and condition of the Venue provided, and the truth or accuracy of any Event listings (including the content thereof or any ratings and reviews) are solely the responsibility of each user. In short, all liabilities and responsibilities in relation to the arrangement made between the Vendor, Venue and Guest are at the risk of the Vendor, Venue and Guest and Classpop! is merely a platform connecting the parties. The Website acts as a third-party venue in connecting Vendors and Guests to one another and provides the means for the Vendors and Guests to plan for Events. You as a User, acknowledge and agree that Classpop! is not a party to any agreement and /or arrangement made between the Guests and Vendors.

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“ Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Classpop!and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
(a) Applicability of Arbitration Agreement . You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with Classpop!, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Classpop! may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the effective date of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms.
(b) Arbitration Rules and Forum . The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Classpop! at 420 Mission Bay Blvd N Suite 504, San Francisco, CA, 94158. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Classpop! will pay them for you. In addition, Classpop! will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(c) Authority of Arbitrator . The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Classpop!. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim.

The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
(d) Waiver of Jury Trial . YOU AND COMPANY HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Classpop! are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 18(a) above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
(e)Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief . ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of California. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
(f) 30-Day Right to Opt Out . You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: email@example.com, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Classpop! username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Classpop! account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
(g) Severability . Except as provided in subsection 18(e), if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
(h) Survival of Agreement . This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Classpop!.
