You understand and agree that TheraHive makes the Platform available to facilitate psychoeducational learning through on-demand video, written information, assessments, quizzes, downloadable documents, and other experiences. It also supports communication between you, your Coach, and other students in your group (the “Hive”). Such communications may include, but are not limited to, messaging, file sharing, and video calls. The Platform enables you, your Coach, and Hive students to communicate information, including personal information (such as names, locations, and demographic information).
1.A.2. TheraHive does not provide medical advice
The contents of our website, mobile application, any content received by you from us through a text message, voice message, emails, in paper form, any graphics, images, and other materials created by us, our coaches, and/or third party service provider (collectively "Content") are for informational purposes only. It is not therapy, medical treatment, or advice. In some cases our educational content may have been developed with guidance from a doctor or licensed therapist, but it is not therapy or a replacement for care by a doctor or therapist. We strongly recommend that you seek professional help and consult a doctor/therapist with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. You should not disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking such medical advice because of something you have read on TheraHive website/application or heard during any interaction with TheraHive.
Additionally, the coaches that lead our live learning sessions may be trained, certified, or licensed doctors or therapists, but they operate as coaches in the context of their role with TheraHive and the delivery of our courses.

The Coaches that provide services through TheraHive are independent contractors who are not our employees, agents, and representatives.

If you feel the Coaching services provided by the Coach do not fit your needs or expectations, you may request to be transitioned to another group led by a different Coach. Though we shall endeavor to quickly shift you to the new Coach, such availability may be limited and may require that you wait an indeterminate amount of time for a new group to start. TheraHive does not guarantee the availability of specific Coach for any Course. However, if you are not transitioned to another group within a reasonable time, as determined by TheraHive and not exceeding 90 consecutive days, you may request a pro-rated refund for the remaining portion of that Course.

All students begin their Course(s) with an assessment session with one of our Coaches. The assessment is designed to understand your background, interests, and goals so that we can match you with the other students that will be in your learning group or Hive. We try our best to assign students to their Hive of choice but that’s not always possible due to demand for the specific group or the profiles of the other students being considered.
3.B. Section Fees
Some Courses have independent sections that can be purchased on a stand alone basis. When Students purchase Courses in this manner, they are still required to purchase an Assessment Session.
3.C. Post-Graduation Subscription Fees
After completing a Course students can maintain access to their content by purchasing a graduate subscription. Subscribers will only be able to communicate with other students in their Hive if they are also post-graduate subscribers.
3.E. Timing of Charges
Tuition and fees associated with courses will be charged in advance. Fees for sssessment sessions will be charged when the session appointment is confirmed. Tuition and fees for Courses will be charged when students are enrolled in a specific path or section.

We reserve the right to change our fees at any time and without notice. However, if you are already enrolled in a Course, your fee shall not be modified without prior notice to you and obtaining your consent.
3.G. Cancellation & Rescheduling
We will make every effort to avoid having to cancel a Course, including assigning a new coach if required. However, there may be cases where this is not possible. If this happens, you will be entitled to participate in a future instance of that Course at no additional cost.
Our coaches make reasonable effort to host live-sessions at pre-scheduled time, however, there may be occasions when they must cancel a live-session. When this happens the Course may skip the live-session and resume the following week. In this case, a week will be added at the end of the Course to make up for the lost session. Alternatively, the coach may work to reschedule the session at an alternative time during the week.
3.G.2. Assessment Sessions
Our coaches make reasonable effort to host assessment sessions at the pre-scheduled time, however, there may be occasions when they must cancel. In this case, your coach will work to reschedule the session with you as soon as possible.
Students may cancel the assessment session upto 48 hours in advance without incurring a rescheduling penalty. Appointments that are cancelled less than 48 hours in advance will be subject to a fee equal to 25% of the cost of the assessment session.
In view of the Requirements for continued enrollment policy detailed in section 2.C. above, Students that are unenrolled from a Course due to lack of participation are not eligible for a refund.
If we are unable to enroll you in a group within two months of your assessment session, you may request a refund for that session. We do not offer refunds for Courses once that has started.

Enrolling in a Course requires that we have a valid credit card on file. You agree to provide us with this information and update us immediately in case there is any change to the information.

9. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution; Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND TheraHive TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM TheraHive.
9.A. Governing Law
The Platform is controlled and operated by us from the United States, and is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than that of the United States. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflicts of law principles and courts located in San Francisco shall have exclusive personal jurisdiction over the parties.
9.B. Arbitration Agreement
You and TheraHive agree that all claims and disputes relating in any way to your use of our Platform and Services, or arising out of or in connection with these Terms, shall be resolved by binding arbitration, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, on an individual basis, except for any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents, or any dispute already pending at the time you first agree to these Terms. You also agree that any arbitration will take place in San Francisco, California. You understand that adjudication through arbitration is not mediation, but is a final and legally binding process to adjudicate disputes that displaces resolution of disputes in a judicial forum. Additionally, by agreeing to arbitrate, you are giving up your right to sue for legal redress in a court of law as well as the right of appeal. The arbitrator shall be mutually named by the parties when a dispute arises. In case the parties to the dispute are not able to finalize an arbitrator within reasonable time, both parties shall nominate one arbitrator each, and such arbitrators shall nominate a third arbitrator.
Arbitration is the referral of a claim or dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the claim or dispute and making a final binding determination to resolve it, instead of having it decided by a judge or jury in court. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
9.C. Waiver of Jury Trial

10. International Use and The GDPR
The TheraHive Platform advises Students to be aware of, and respect and comply with the local laws of any internationally based Student. TheraHive is cognizant and respects the formal promulgation of the existing European Union (EU) data privacy regulations. The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA and is commonly referred to as “GDPR.” TheraHive has always and will continue to respect our Student’s Privacy (see our Privacy Notice for details)
The basic tenants of the promulgated GDPR regulations include, but are not limited to the following:
Access to collected data: At TheraHive, you already have the ability to access your shared data (Your personal information and all your interactions with your Coach) and use it as you wish.
Clear Consent: At TheraHive our Terms of Service are clear on what consent we seek with regards to your data and prior to your engagement with our Platform/Services. In case you are a minor (below the age of 18 years), you shall not use/access the Platform and/or our Service.
Security: At TheraHive we aim to secure and/or encrypt our data, and have proper systems in place to ensure the security of your data.
Notice/Audit: At TheraHive, we will provide our Students notice of any data breach in line with applicable law, and we engage a third party security firm to periodically audit both our code and technology security around data security.
Finally, dependent on your EU country or origin, the GDPR takes into account what was previously termed the right “to forget” or request deletion of your data once you cease using a particular application or site. We shall comply with such request if and to the extent applicable
The Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof. If any provision of the Terms 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 the Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for reference only and in no way define, limit, construe, or describe the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to act with respect to any failure by you or others to comply with these Terms does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures. You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent, and any assignment or transfer in violation of this provision shall be null and void. Except as otherwise set forth in these Terms: (a) any notice given by us to you will be provided via email to the email address used to register your account and/or, in our sole discretion, to the email address of the person listed as your administrator/guardian on the Platform, and will be deemed to be both written and fully given on the date of sending; and (b) any notice given by you to us will be provided as set forth in Section 12.
