FAQ’s found on the Site are for informational purposes only and are not deemed to be part of this Agreement. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, the Agreement will survive termination of your membership in the Service. The failure of Blueprint to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The Article and section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word ”including” when used in this Agreement means “including without limitation”.

Force Majeure: Neither party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any obligation under any Agreement which is due to an event beyond the control of such party including but not limited to any Act of God, terrorism, war, political insurgence, insurrection, riot, civil unrest, act of civil or military authority, uprising, earthquake, flood, disease, or any other natural or man-made eventuality outside of our control, which causes the termination of an agreement or contract entered into, nor which could have been reasonably foreseen. Any party affected by such event shall forthwith inform the other party of the same.

Complaints: If a dispute arises between you and Blueprint, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. You agree that you will notify us about any dispute you have with Blueprint regarding our Site or Services by emailing info@blueprintprep.com before any complaint is drafted or filed.

You hereby waive your right to a jury trial in connection with any disputes arising from or relating to this Agreement.

Arbitration:  Pursuant to the California Arbitration Act, any dispute or difference arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be determined by the appointment of a single arbitrator to be agreed between the parties, or failing agreement within fourteen (14) days, after either party has given to the other a written request to concur in the appointment of an arbitrator, by an arbitrator to be appointed by Blueprint. 

Any and all disputes arising from or related to this Agreement, other than disputes relating to intellectual property infringement or disputes that are eligible for small-claims court, including whether the dispute may be arbitrated and the scope of this arbitration agreement, shall be finally resolved by arbitration administered by a single arbitrator under the then-applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association in accordance the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitration shall be governed by and construed by federal law to the fullest extent possible. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the arbitration shall take place in Los Angeles, California. Judgment on the arbitral award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, should you wish to initiate a legal action against Blueprint, you waive any right or ability to be a class or collective action representative or to otherwise participate in any putative or certified class, collective, or multi-party action or proceeding based on such a claim in which Blueprint or a related entity is a party. The same applies to Blueprint’s legal actions against you. Thus, you and Blueprint agree that 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. Further, unless both you and Blueprint agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over a representative or class proceeding.

Improperly Filed Claims: All claims between you and Blueprint must be resolved in accordance with this Article. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Article shall be considered improperly filed.
