In addition, we may, in lieu of a refund as provided in this paragraph, opt to provide you with a service credit, with a value equal to the amount incorrectly charged to your payment method.
Taxes. You are responsible for any applicable sales or use tax, duties, or other governmental taxes or fees payable in connection with your purchase. If you do not pay such sales or other tax or fee on a transaction, you will be responsible for such taxes or fees in the event that they are later determined to be payable on such sale, and we reserve the right to collect such taxes or other fees from you at any time.
Automatic Renewal Terms. Certain Services are made available through ongoing subscriptions (“Subscriptions”). By enrolling in a Subscription program, you agree that a Subscription fee will be billed at the price you agreed to when subscribing to the payment you provide for the then-current Subscription period on a recurring basis until you cancel.

Confidential Information refers to certain information that is marked as “Confidential” or “Proprietary” or that we reasonably regard as confidential or proprietary relating to our programs, business, products, processes and techniques, including without limitation information relating to our trade secrets, business plans, strategies, methods and/or practices that is not generally known to the public and is disclosed to you pursuant to your express agreement to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information.
Except as expressly allowed in accordance with these Terms, you agree to hold in confidence and not disclose any such Confidential Information. You agree to protect our Confidential Information from disclosure to any third parties, using at least the same degree of care that you use to protect your own confidential and proprietary information of similar importance, but no less than a reasonable degree of care.
The foregoing obligations shall not apply to the extent that Confidential Information: (i) must be disclosed to comply with any requirement of law or order of a court or administrative body; (ii) is known to you, or in your or our possession, prior to receiving the disclosure of such Confidential Information from us as documented by notes or records; (iii) is known or generally available to the public through no act or omission of you or us in breach of these Terms; or (iv) is validly made available free of any legal restriction by a third party. The duties and requirements under this section shall survive termination of these Terms.

Enforcement of the Terms is solely in our discretion and the absence of enforcement of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the Terms in other instances. In addition, these Terms do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation or promise that the Services will not contain any content that is prohibited by these Terms.
Although Positive Intelligence has no obligation to screen, edit or monitor any of the User Submissions posted on the Services, Positive Intelligence reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen or edit any User Submissions posted or stored on the Services at any time and for any reason without notice, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies and replacing any User Submissions you post or store on the Services at your sole cost and expense.
Positive Intelligence respects the intellectual property rights of others.

As described in more detail in the Copyright Policy, a copy of your notification will be sent to the person who posted or stored the material addressed in the notification. Please be advised that, pursuant to applicable law, you may be held liable for damages if you make material misrepresentations in a notification made under the Copyright Policy.

Any inquiries, feedback, suggestions, ideas, other information which is not part of your use of the Services that you provide to us (collectively, “Feedback”) will be treated as non-proprietary and non-confidential.

You also acknowledge that your Submissions will not be returned to you and that Positive Intelligence has no obligation to acknowledge receipt of or respond to any Feedback. If you make a Feedback, you represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control the rights to your Feedback. You agree to indemnify Positive Intelligence and its affiliates for all claims arising from or in connection with any claims to any rights in any Feedback or any damages arising from any Feedback.

Positive Intelligence is a provider of online and mobile professional coaching content. We are not a health care or medical device provider, nor should our Services be considered medical advice. Positive Intelligence makes no claims, representations or guarantees that the Services provide a therapeutic benefit.
Any advice or other materials in the Services are intended for general educational and informational purposes only, and the use of such advice or other materials are undertaken at your own risk. Coaching is NOT a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment. Coaching is not to be used in place of any form of diagnosis, treatment, or therapy. The content should not substitute for medical advice from a qualified health care professional, medical or psychological (mental) diagnosis, treatment and care.
There are elements of our programs that are challenging and you may experience strong emotions or trigger past experience of trauma. Positive Intelligence is not responsible for individual reactions to the content of any coaching content received in connection with the Services. If you feel you cannot participate and stay safe, please discontinue your use of the Services and consult with a trauma-informed mental health practitioner.
You should not discontinue or modify any medication or therapy presently being taken pursuant to medical advice, without obtaining approval from a healthcare professional. If you have a health problem (physically or mentally), please speak to your doctor or a health care professional immediately about your condition. You take complete responsibility for your own physical/mental health and emotional well-being. It is up to you to independently assess any decisions, actions or inactions, resulting from or relating to the website or a coaching experience.
Certain techniques and behaviors taught or suggested in connection with the Services, such as PQ Reps, include techniques to narrowly focus on one physical sensation or object of attention. You are solely responsible for only using such techniques safely, including by ensuring that you are in an environment and situation that permits you to engage in them safely. You should never use any such techniques when engaged in any activity that requires you to pay attention more broadly in order to keep safe, such as when you’re moving or driving.
POSITIVE INTELLIGENCE DISCLAIMS, TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY ADVERSE AFFECTS RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR ANY USER’S RELIANCE ON ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED VIA THE SERVICES.
Limitation of liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, Positive Intelligence’s aggregate liability related to these Terms (whether under contract, tort or otherwise) is limited to the amounts paid by you for the Products. Positive Intelligence will not be liable for accidents, delays, injuries, harm, loss, damage, death, lost profits, personal or business interruptions, misapplication of information, physical or mental disease, condition or issue, or otherwise, due to any act or default of any other person or business, whether owners, staff, agents or otherwise, affiliated with Positive Intelligence. POSITIVE INTELLIGENCE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, LOST PROFITS, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT (WHETHER UNDER CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE).
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Positive Intelligence (and its directors, officers, members, investors, managers, employees and agents) harmless from any and all claims, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising in any way from your use of the Services, your placement or transmission of any message, content, information, software, or other submissions through the Services, or your breach or violation of the law or of these Terms. Positive Intelligence reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with Positive Intelligence’s defense of such claim.
Positive Intelligence offers certification programs for coaches. Upon completion of the requirements and satisfactory passing of the applicable examination(s) (“Certification Exams”), you may be eligible for certification by Positive Intelligence (“Certification”).

Anyone obtaining access to our Certification Exams or other Confidential Information is obligated to maintain the confidentiality of this information pursuant to these Terms, including the confidentiality provisions set forth under the “Confidential Information” heading, above. Any individual caught violating the terms of this provision will be permanently ineligible for any Positive Intelligence Certification and shall be decertified from the Positive Intelligence Certification program and all current Certifications associated with it.
Positive Intelligence may revoke or otherwise take action with regard to the application or certification of an individual at any time, with or without cause, by giving thirty (30) calendar days’ prior written notice to the other party.
Without limiting our general right to revoke an application or certification as we determine appropriate as described above, we may revoke or otherwise take action with regard to the application or certification of an individual immediately in the case of:
- Ineligibility for Certification.
- Irregularity in connection with any Certification process.
- Material misrepresentation or fraud in any statement to Positive Intelligence or to the public, including but not limited to statements made to assist the applicant, certificant, or another to apply for, obtain, or retain Certification.
- Misappropriation, or other use in violation of these Terms, of Confidential Information of Positive Intelligence
- Failure to meet the requirements for or maintain the certification requirements.
- Failure to comply with the applicable continuing certification requirements for the relevant Certification.
- Failure to uphold the standards of Certification or use the Certification in such a manner that could bring Positive Intelligence and/or the Certification program into disrepute or cause loss of public trust.
- Any form of representation of our material, including but not limited to content and marketing, that we believe, at our sole discretion, may diminish our brand or otherwise reflect poorly on Positive Intelligence or its products, services or personnel
In the event any of the above occurs, we may provide you with written notice of revocation or other action with regard to your Certification.
Prohibited use of the Services

Breach of these provisions may constitute a criminal offense under applicable laws. We may report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we may cooperate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use the Services will cease immediately.
Positive Intelligence, PQ, the Positive Intelligence logo, the look and feel of the Services, and any other product or service name, logo or slogan contained in the Services are trademarks, service marks and/or trade dress of Positive Intelligence or our suppliers or licensors and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written authorization of Positive Intelligence or the applicable trademark holder. Any authorized use of such trademarks, service marks and/or trade dress must be in accordance with any guidelines provided by Positive Intelligence.

Please be sure to state that you are requesting a copy of the particular communication.
You can contact us via email to email@example.com to withdraw your consent to receive any future communications electronically. If you withdraw your consent, we may terminate your use of the Services.

Binding Arbitration; Waiver of Class Claims
Notwithstanding the paragraph immediately above, You and Positive Intelligence agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit Your rights or our rights to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court where permitted under applicable law, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek available injunctive or other equitable relief for disputes relating to intellectual property, proprietary data, confidential information or to enforce this dispute resolution clause, or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims not otherwise precluded by these Terms.
Any arbitration between You and Positive Intelligence will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (or such subsequently adopted rules modifying such procedures) of the American Arbitration Association (“collectively, the “AAA Rules”) as applicable in light of the claims raised and subject to any express modification by these Terms. The arbitration will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified mail or nationally recognized overnight courier (signature required), or, in the event that we do not have a current physical address on file for You, by email (“Notice”). Positive Intelligence’s address for Notice is firstname.lastname@example.org. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, You or Positive Intelligence may commence an arbitration proceeding.
Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in San Francisco County, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, You may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance-based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
YOU AND POSITIVE INTELLIGENCE AGREE THAT YOU EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and Positive Intelligence agree otherwise, You will not request the arbitrator or court to consolidate more than one person’s claims, or to otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Unless otherwise specifically indicated, all notices given by you to us must be given to email@example.com. We may give notice to you at the email address you provide to us when you register, or delivered through the Services. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on the Services or when an email or other electronic communication is sent. In proving the service of any notice via email, it will be sufficient to prove that such email was sent to the specified email address of the addressee.
Term. These Terms shall become effective with respect to you on the date you first accept these Terms by using the Services or otherwise, and shall remain in effect at all times while you continue to have an account with us or otherwise use the Services.
Relationship of Parties. You and Positive Intelligence are independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties. Except as provided in these Terms, there are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in effect.
Assignment. You may not assign these Terms or any of Your rights or obligations under these Terms, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Positive Intelligence. We may assign these Terms to any third party in our discretion. Any attempt by a party to assign its rights or obligations under these Terms in breach of this section shall be void and of no effect. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Governing Law. These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California. No choice or conflict of laws rules of any jurisdiction shall apply to these Terms. For all claims other than those subject to arbitration pursuant to the terms of the “Binding Arbitration; Waiver of Class Claims” section set forth above, You agree that You shall only bring any action or claim in respect to these Terms and/or the Services in the state courts located in the County of San Francisco, California, and You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such action or claim brought by You. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party shall be entitled to seek available equitable relief (including injunctive relief) in any jurisdiction with a reasonable connection to the subject matter of these Terms or the Services. Each party hereby waives any right to jury trial in connection with any action or claim in any way arising out of or related to these Terms.
Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. No modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of these Terms shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the modification, amendment or waiver is to be asserted. Notwithstanding any contrary language herein, the terms of any separate written agreement entered between Positive Intelligence and You with respect to any commercial relationship or other business interactions between us, including but not limited to any Certifications, or coaching activities by you, shall apply to such activities while these Terms shall continue to govern Your use of the Services defined herein.
These Terms are effective and were last updated on April 13th, 2021.
