PURPOSE AND SCOPE
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
Make Community may collect various types of personal information, including:
- Personal and business contact information (such as name, billing and shipping address, phone number, email address, and social media/messaging account ID)
- Account ID
- Profile picture
- Social media postings and information
- Payment card, digital wallet, or other payment service information
Depending on the service we are providing to you, we may also need to collect more sensitive personal information (such as location or birth date) directly from you.
If you submit any personal information about other people to us or to our service providers, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use their personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
We and our service providers may collect personal information from a variety of sources, including:
- From you or someone acting on your behalf. We may collect personal information you or someone acting on your behalf shares with us such as your name and contact details.
- Through Make Community Services. We may collect personal information about you when you create a login, for example, when you sign up for a newsletter, make a purchase, or use or install our products or apps.
- Through Third Party Services. We may collect personal information about you when you use third party services that utilize the Make Community Services.
- Offsite. We may collect personal information you provide to us off this site, such as when you visit our respective websites, stores, attend one of our events, place a verbal order over the phone or contact community management or customer services.
- From Other Sources. We may collect your personal information from other sources, such as public databases, joint marketing partners, and social media platforms. We may also receive your personal information from people with whom you are “friends” or otherwise connected on social media platforms. For example, if you elect to connect your social media account to your Make Community login account, certain personal information from your social media account will be shared with us. Such information may include personal information that is part of your social media profile or your friends’ profiles. Similarly, if your social media “friends” connect their social media account to their Make Community login account, information about you may be shared with us via this “friend” connection.
OTHER INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
Make Community may also collect other information from your app, browser, or device that does not reveal your (or anyone else’s) real world identity, for example:
- Browser and device information
- App or device usage data
- Information collected through cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies
- IP address
- Location data
- Aggregated, anonymized, or de-identified information
- Demographic information and other information provided by you (i.e., language, occupation, postal code).
We and our third-party service providers may collect this information in a variety of ways, including:
- Through your browser or device. Most browsers and devices collect certain information automatically, for example, type and version of operating system, screen resolution, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the Services (such as the app) you are using. We use this information, for example, to make sure that the Make Community Services function properly, analyze the performance of our products, and improve and maintain our Services. Our Services may track and collect usage data, such as the date and time your device accesses our servers and what information and files have been downloaded.
- IP Address. IP addresses are automatically transmitted as part of any Internet communication, and collecting IP addresses is a common practice; many websites, applications and other Make Community Services collect IP addresses automatically. We use IP addresses for purposes such as communicating with your device, calculating usage levels of the Services, helping diagnose server problems, security, and administering all domains owned and operated by Make Community.
- Location Data. We may collect the physical location of a connected device, for example, using satellite, cell phone tower, and WiFi signals. We may use your device’s physical location to provide you with personalized location-based services, content, and advertising. We may also share your device’s physical location, combined with information about what advertisements you viewed and other information we collect, with our marketing partners to enable them to provide you with more personalized content and to study the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. You can choose whether to allow or deny uses and/or sharing of your device’s location by changing your device settings, but if you choose to deny such uses and/or sharing, we and/or our marketing partners may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized Make Community Services, content, and advertising.
HOW WE MAY USE YOUR INFORMATION
We may use personal information in the following ways:
- Events. When you register for a Make Community event, we will send you email announcements and updates about Make Community events and conferences and may use your personal information to notify you of other services that Make Community provides.

Some of these activities have additional rules, which could contain more information about how we use and disclose your personal information, so we suggest that you read these rules carefully. When you enter a contest or giveaway, we may ask for your name, address, and email address so we can administer the contest and communicate with entrants about the results.

If we combine any other information with personal information, we will treat the combined information as personal information as long as it is combined and is personally identifiable.
Make Community may also use your personal information to deliver specific services on selected websites. These include:
Creating an Account on Maker Faire: To submit information about yourself and your projects for a Call for Makers application for a flagship Maker Faire event, you need to have an account. During account creation, we ask you for your email address. Other users cannot see your email address.
The application allows you to indicate what information you provide about yourself, your project(s), and your project collaborators is available for publication; all information indicated as Public may be published on other Make Community Services. Information indicated in the application as Private is shared only with the Maker Faire production team for purposes of organizing the event.
Creating an Account on Makezine.com
You do not need to create an account to use makezine.com. However, if you wish to comment on a story on makezine.com, you need to login with your Facebook, Twitter, Google or Disqus account in order to use the third party commenting service provided by Disqus. The Make: team has access to the user’s email and IP addresses for purposes of moderating comments; we do not publish these emails, share with third-parties or market to email addresses obtained through the Disqus service.
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

We are offering Make Community Services internationally. As such, we may transfer your personal information across national lines when processing that information for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. We may also transfer your personal information to our third party service providers, who may be located in a different country to you.
We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
HOW YOU SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
You may share your information on message boards, forums, chat, profile pages and blogs to which you are able to post information and materials. Please note that any such information you post or disclose in public forums will become public information, and may be available to users and to the general public. We urge you to be very careful when deciding to disclose your personal information, or any other information, online.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
Other than as described above, we do not share personally identifiable information about you with any other person, company, or organization, except (a) as required to comply with our obligations under the law, and (b) for technical reasons, if we are required to transfer the data on our servers to another location or organization.
- Make Community has in place physical and electronic procedures to protect the information we collect through the Services. We strictly limit individual access to our servers and the data we store on them. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot completely guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
- All Make Community Services are designed to provide reasonable and appropriate organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect personal information within our organization against unauthorized or unlawful access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Users of Make Community Services must also do their part in protecting the data, systems, networks, and service they are utilizing. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that your password to your account has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
USE OF MAKE COMMUNITY SERVICES BY MINORS
We comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of the United States and similar laws around the world where applicable to our Services. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children without proper parental consent. If you believe that we may have collected personal information from someone under the age of thirteen (13), or under the applicable age of consent in your country, without parental consent, please let us know using the methods described in the Contact Us section and we will take appropriate measures to investigate and address the issue promptly.
THIRD-PARTY SERVICES AND ADVERTISERS
Make Community Services does not share your personal information with non-affiliated third parties for their own marketing use without your permission.
When we share personal information with a service provider, we require that they first contractually agree to comply with reasonable and appropriate privacy and security standards.
HOW YOU CAN MANAGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We give you many choices regarding our use and disclosure of your personal information for marketing purposes. You may update and request access to your contact details and communication preferences by using one of the following methods: visit the specific website and access Account Settings; use the online Help link; use the “unsubscribe” link, or send a letter to the postal address below.
You may choose to update your communication preferences for the following types of marketing activities:
- To accept or refuse receiving marketing-related messages from us in the future.
- To accept or refuse our sharing of your personal information with affiliates and subsidiaries so that they may market directly to you.
- To accept or refuse our sharing of your personal information with non-affiliated third parties so that they may market directly to you. You can also unsubscribe from Make Community marketing-related messages by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each marketing-related message sent to you. Please also note that if you do choose not to receive marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative and transactional messages (i.e., service notifications) about your Make Community Services.
For your protection, we will only implement requests with respect to personal information about you (not anyone else), and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable and in accordance with applicable law. We may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, as required under applicable legal obligations, and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such change or deletion. Some of your information may remain within our systems and other records, in compliance with applicable law.

Maker Campus Terms and Conditions
LAST UPDATED: 03-31-2021
Please read these Terms of Service carefully, as they contain an agreement to arbitrate and other important information regarding your legal rights, remedies, and obligations. The agreement to arbitrate requires (with limited exception) that you submit claims you have against us to binding and final arbitration, and further (1) you will only be permitted to pursue claims against Maker Campus on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding, and (2) you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.
When using certain aspects of the Services or using certain Services, you will be subject to any additional terms applicable to such services that may be posted on the Service from time to time, including, without limitation. All such terms are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service.
The Services consist of an online marketplace and platform through which community members may offer classes, camps, workshops and more. While Maker Campus expects a high level of service you acknowledge and agree that: (1) Make Campus is not a party to any agreements entered into between Facilitator and Participant, (2) Maker Campus only provides certain tools to facilitate the purchase, sale and provision of Classes, (3) Maker Campus is not a broker, agent (except as expressly set forth below) or insurer, and (4) Make: Community disclaims all liability for the conduct of Facilitators, Participants and or Guardians, or any other Users of the Site or Classes. Different sections of the Site and Terms of Service affect Facilitators and Participants differently, so please be sure to read these Terms of Service carefully.
Access and Use of the Service
Services Description: Maker Campus is an online marketplace and aggregator of programming designed for those interested in making. As the provider of an online marketplace, Maker Campus does not own, create, sell, resell, control, or manage any Classes. Maker Campus’ responsibilities are limited to: (i) providing the Site as an online marketplace and platform to facilitate the sale, purchase, and conduct of Classes, and (ii) serving as the limited agent of each Maker for the purpose of accepting payments from a participant and or Participant and or Guardian on behalf of the Maker. There are risks that you assume when dealing with other Users (including those who may be acting under false pretenses). While Maker Campus strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment for its Users, you agree that all of these risks are ultimately borne by you, and not Maker Campus. Maker Campus does not control the behavior of Users or the quality of the Classes. As a result, Maker Campus cannot guarantee the authenticity, quality, safety, legality, or appropriateness of the Classes.
Modifications to Service: Maker Campus reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Maker Campus will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
General Practices Regarding Use and Storage: You acknowledge that Maker Campus may establish general practices and limits concerning use of the Service, including without limitation the maximum period of time that data or other content will be retained by the Service and the maximum storage space that will be allotted on Maker Campus’ servers on your behalf. You agree that Maker Campus has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Service. You acknowledge that Maker Campus reserves the right to terminate accounts that are inactive for an extended period of time. You further acknowledge that Maker Campus reserves the right to change these general practices and limits at any time, in its sole discretion, with or without notice.
Class Recordings: Classes that take place through Maker Campus’ video chat platform are automatically recorded by Maker Campus (“Class Recordings”). We value student and Facilitator privacy, and our use of Class Recordings is extremely limited. Specifically, Class Recordings are made available only to the Facilitator providing the Class in question, in order to allow them to (1) provide a viewable copy to students who missed the Class, or who wish to review the Class, for their personal educational purposes; and (2) review the Class Recording personally in order to improve their Classes. Please note that in some cases, Classes are taught by a Facilitator that is actually an organization, group, or team of instructors. In such cases, Class Recordings may be accessed by the organization, and access would not necessarily be limited to a single individual instructor. In addition, Maker Campus may use Class Recordings to provide feedback to Facilitators, to improve our Services, for customer support, and for compliance purposes. We will not use Class Recordings containing images of you (or your children) for promotional or any other purposes without your express written consent. By using the services, you consent to you and/or your child appearing in Class Recordings for the limited purposes set forth above.
Certain Facilitator Obligations
When you join the Maker Campus community, you agree to follow our policies. Those expectations include thoughtful and professional communications with our community (colleagues, Participant and or Guardians, children), modeling appropriate behavior for our learners, and acting professionally. In addition, you agree to use social media, blogs, and other online forums, in an appropriate manner. Inappropriate behavior in any Maker Campus affiliated online forum includes, but is not limited to: behavior intended to provoke, bully, demean, or cause harm to others, or to create conflict; or any other posts or content that Maker Campus, in its discretion, believes to be unconducive to a respectful and welcoming community for all. Inappropriate behavior in any online forum includes, but is not limited to: posting online or speaking to the media on Maker Campus’ behalf without prior written authorization from Maker Campus; posts that Maker Campus, in its discretion, finds to be offensive or inappropriate based on race, sex, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability or medical condition, veteran status, or any other legally protected characteristic; derogatory, disparaging, or disrespectful comments about learners, Facilitators, Participant and or Guardians, or Maker Campus staff, even if the target is not identified by name; sharing any private material, communication, or information regarding Participant and or Guardians of learners, including but not limited to students’ or Participant and or Guardians’ names, photos, conversations, emails, student academic or performance information, screenshots of student work, or any other personal identifying information; posts that may be harmful to Maker Campus’ ongoing business operations; sharing content that contains or promotes hate speech, threats of violence, or the endangerment of children; and any other violation of Maker Campus’ community standards.
Each Facilitator is solely responsible for obtaining all licenses and other permissions required to offer or provide any Classes, and Maker Campus assumes no responsibility for a Facilitator’s failure to obtain such licenses or permissions or otherwise comply with any applicable laws, rules or regulations.
You understand and agree that Maker Campus is not an insurer, agent or employer for you as a Facilitator. If a participant purchases any of your Classes, any agreement you enter into with such participant is between you and the participant , and Maker Campus is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Maker Campus is authorized to serve as your limited agent purely for the purpose of accepting payments from participants on your behalf and transmitting such payments to you (minus our Fees). You acknowledge and agree that, as a Facilitator, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions while using the Services. With the sole exception of students enrolled in the applicable Class, and/or their Participant and or Guardians, you further agree that you will not share any Class Recordings made available to you by Maker Campus to any third parties. Allowing other Facilitators within your organization to view the Class Recordings, however, is permissible.
General: Each participant and or guardian agrees to pay all applicable fees for Classes (“Enrollment Fees”) as set forth on the Site. All Enrollment Fees are payable in the currency specified on the Site at the time of purchase. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than U.S. taxes based on Company’s net income. Participant hereby authorizes Maker Campus to bill participant’s payment instrument upon confirmation of a purchase, and participant further agrees to pay any charges so incurred. If a participant disputes any charges you must let Maker Campus know within thirty (30) days after the date that Maker Campus charges you.
Facilitator Payment: Maker Campus will transfer the Enrollment Fees to Facilitator’s Paypal account for each sale of a Class (or set of Classes, as applicable) to a participant within a reasonable period of time, minus Maker Campus’ service fees , according to the schedule and policies detailed in our. In order to transfer funds to Facilitator’s Paypal account, Facilitator shall sign up for a Paypal account. Maker Campus has discretion to act on behalf of the participant, and to not transfer the Enrollment Fees to Facilitator, if participant reports that the Classes were not provided or adequately completed. This may include but is not limited to circumstances where a Facilitator did not arrive for a Class or a Class was of insufficient quality. Maker Campus will independently review such cases, seeking input from the participant and/or the Facilitator, and may decide at its sole discretion to issue a refund to the participant . All determinations of Maker Campus with respect to a refund shall be final.
If Facilitator is responsible for providing materials and or kits to participants this must happen in a timely fashion before the start of the program. If the Facilitator is unable to fulfill these duties participants will be issued a refund.
Maker Campus and Make: Community reserve the right to offer up to a 20% discount on any and all workshops or classes listed. The application of a Make: promotion discount code will lower ticket price and be subject to the same revenue split.

- your physical or electronic signature;
- identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;

Disclaimer of Warranties

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS
Agreement to Arbitrate: This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Maker Campus, whether arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and Maker Campus are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND MAKER CAMPUS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND Maker Campus AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution: Maker Campus is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at email@example.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Maker Campus should be sent to Make Community LLC. 150 Todd Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95407, United States (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Maker Campus and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Maker Campus may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Maker Campus or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Maker Campus is entitled.
Arbitration Procedures: Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, https://www.adr.org/. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, https://www.adr.org/consumer. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless Maker Campus and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, Maker Campus agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
Costs of Arbitration: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, Maker Campus will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Maker Campus will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Maker Campus will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
Confidentiality: All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
Severability: If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.
Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement: Notwithstanding any provision in this Terms of Service to the contrary, Maker Campus agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending Maker Campus written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
You agree that Maker Campus, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if Maker Campus believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Maker Campus may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Maker Campus may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that Maker Campus will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service and Maker Campus will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto.
Maker Campus reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way it deems necessary with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Maker Campus and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Maker Campus with respect to the Service. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third party services, third party content or third party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Maker Campus agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within San Francisco County, California. The failure of Maker Campus to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Maker Campus, but Maker Campus may assign or transfer these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service.
