Web Site Terms and Conditions of Use
Last updated: May 9th, 2020
Welcome to Casehero.com. Please read on to understand the terms and restrictions that govern your use of our website(s) accessible via www.casehero.com, products, services, and applications (the “Services”). If you have any feedback, or concerns regarding our terms, please contact us. Please note that your use of and access to our services (defined below) are subject to the following terms. By agreeing to these terms, you expressly acknowledge that you understand the terms (including the dispute resolution and arbitration provisions contained herein) and accept all of them. If you do not agree to all of the following, you may not use or access the services in any manner.
By accessing this web site, you are agreeing to be bound by these web site Terms and Conditions of Use, all applicable laws, and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this web site are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.
For the purposes of these Terms, “User” means anyone who accesses and/or registers for our Services, including without limitation students, or other users.
Please be advised: these Terms contain provisions that govern how claims that you and Casehero have against each other can be brought (see below). These provisions will, with limited exception, require that you submit claims you have against Casehero to binding and final arbitration on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class, group, or representative action or proceeding.
Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the www.casehero.com website, by sending you an email and/or by some other means.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
What about my privacy?
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT ARE THE BASICS OF USING CASEHERO.COM (APPLICABLE TO ALL USERS)?
You will only use the Services for your own personal use (and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party), and only in a manner that complies with all laws, rules (government, school, or otherwise), and regulations (collectively “Applicable Laws”) that apply to you. You may not resell or make any commercial use of the Services or any Content (defined below) therein (other than your own Submissions (defined below), subject to the non-exclusive license you grant to us). Any Content you access through the Services is licensed, not sold to you, regardless of the use of the term “purchase” herein. You are prohibited from soliciting other users of the Services (hereafter “Users”) to contact you outside the Services for any purpose. “Content” means the materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, course materials, class notes, flashcards, Expert Answers, and so forth. “Submissions” means any Content you post, upload, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Services.
If your use of the Services is prohibited by Applicable Laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks any Applicable Laws.
You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract (or if not, you’ve received your parent’s or guardian’s permission to use the Services and gotten your parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf). If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms, in which case the references to “you” or “your” or the like other than in this sentence, refer to such organization or entity. If you are a parent, guardian, or other person who enables a child under the age of 13 to access the Services, you agree to stand in the shoes of such child for the purposes of making us whole in case of damages or indemnification that could properly lie against a child, if not for his or her age. The Services are intended for use by you only if you are 13 years of age or older.
We are not responsible for Content
We are not responsible for editing, modifying, filtering, screening, monitoring, endorsing or guaranteeing any Content. We are not liable for any acts or omissions of Users, or the accuracy or completeness of any answers or another User’s ability to provide answers. We cannot ensure that any User will complete a transaction.

Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Services?
Any Content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services. We can’t guarantee the identity of any Users with whom you interact in using the Services and are not responsible for which Users gain access to the Services.

By using the Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website or service.
Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties.

Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL CASEHERO (OR ITS LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) $100 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO CASEHERO IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM, OR (C) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL.

Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction. For all purposes of these Terms, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, Bad Honnef, Germany, or the state North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany.
You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that Casehero may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
