B. The Website
5. Intro is a Venue; Third-Party Content

The Intro Site is a venue for informational and educational purposes, owned and operated by Intro, that exists solely to broker relationships between Experts and potential Customers of those Experts who are interested in purchasing their Expert services. Intro is not in the business of providing or selling information or education that is within any Expert’s area of Expertise. Users of the Site, not Intro, provide the content in Posts (defined below). The Experts determine which questions to answer; Experts are not employees or agents of Intro but are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers and, as such, together with Customers, are simply Users of the Site.

Intro is not involved in the conversations between Customers and Experts. You understand and acknowledge that Intro cannot and does not edit, modify, filter, screen, monitor, endorse or guarantee the content of calls. Intro shall not be liable for any acts or omissions of Experts, content in Posts or the ability of Experts to answer questions. We cannot ensure that an Expert will complete a transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Intro reserves the right, but is not obligated, to refuse to post or to remove any content and/or remove any User’s access to the Site.

EMERGENCY QUESTIONS AND CRISIS SITUATIONS (particularly regarding medical or mental health issues) should not be directed to the Site and should, instead be directed immediately by telephone or in-person to qualified professionals (e.g. in the U.S., call 911). The Site is not the appropriate venue to deal with such situations.

6. Posts Are Not Private or Confidential; Anonymity

The Site and app are an Internet-based forum. Information and materials submitted in the content of your calls, questions, answers, requests for information, responses, profiles, signatures, qualifications, comments, and posts in the Expert Forum and other places where Users communicate on the Site (collectively "Posts") is not private or confidential, nor is it protected by attorney-client, doctor-patient, or any other privilege, and it may be read, collected, and used by others. For example, search engines may index your calls, questions, answers, and other Posts to allow them to appear in search engine results (e.g. if someone does a search on google.com or another search engine, your questions, answers, and other Posts on Intro.co that relate to the search may appear in the search results list). 

If you would like to keep your call private from other members, please request to do so via the Intro site or app.

7. Verification; No Reliance on the Term “Expert”

Every Expert on the Site has had at least one credential relevant to the category in which they are answering questions verified by a third-party verification service and/or claimed to be an expert, unless the Expert is answering questions in a category that is still being tested by Intro in "Beta". Other information about an Expert, not shown as verified, has been provided by the Expert but has not been verified. Use of the term "Expert" by Intro and on the Site is only meant to describe Users who answer questions on the Site, and not to guarantee any particular level of expertise of these Experts.

The results of the verifications are only as accurate as the information provided to and by the experts themselves. Intro makes effort to verify, but cannot warrant or guarantee an Expert's purported identity; user identification on the Internet is difficult. For these reasons, Intro cannot and does not represent, warrant or guarantee the truthfulness or accuracy of the credentials or identities of Users and information provided by Users including Experts. You acknowledge that Intro will not be liable for any loss or damages caused by your reliance on any information or content contained in Posts.

8. Information Not Advice; No Client-Professional Relationship

Answers of Experts on the Site or app are provided by Experts and are to be used by Customers for general information purposes only, not as a substitute for in-person evaluation or specific professional (medical, legal, veterinary, tax, financial, etc.) advice. For example, Experts in the Legal category will provide only general information about the law, and will not provide legal advice nor propose a specific course of action for a Customer. By answering questions, Experts do not intend to form, and do not form attorney-client or doctor-patient relationships with Users of the Site. The laws, regulations, other governing authorities, standards, practices and procedures that apply to your particular question may differ depending on your location and information typically discovered through in-person evaluations or visits. Experts in some categories may be licensed, certified, educated, employed by or have experience in only particular jurisdictions.

No professional-client relationships shall be formed on the Site. Communications on this Site are not confidential and shall not be the subject of any associated privileges. Communications on this Site are limited, as described above, do not involve in-person evaluations or visits, and do not include safeguards and procedures typical of in-person evaluations and visits.

Before you can interact with an Expert, you will be required to agree to a Disclaimer reminding you of these and other important provisions of the Terms.

C. User Accounts
9. User Accounts; Restricted Activities; Suspension or Termination of Service

User Accounts. When you register as a User on the Site or in the app, you can establish a user name and limited time authentication number (via text) for access to your online account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name, and account data, and you may not share this information or your account with anyone else, and you will be solely responsible for all acts or omissions that occur under your account.

If your Intro account has been suspended or terminated, you may not open another account on the Site.

You are responsible for and bound by the actions of, and transactions entered into by, your actual and appointed representatives whether authorized by you in writing, verbally, or otherwise to represent you at or with Intro. You are responsible for monitoring your appointed representatives and protecting the privacy of your username, login information and any other account or financial information provided to Intro or its vendors and agree to inform us immediately, in writing, of any unauthorized use of same. If you are checking in or logging in as a representative for anyone other than yourself, you agree that you are a duly appointed and authorized representative for that person or entity and have authority to bind that person or entity to any actions or transactions you conduct.

Restricted Activities. You agree that any content you provide on the Site and your use of our Site or any Additional Services (whether such Additional Services are Informational or Beyond-Information Only, as defined below) initiated through the Site shall not: (a) be fraudulent, inaccurate or misleading; (b) infringe any third party’s proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy (Intro can remove unauthorized use of copyrighted material); (c) be illegal or violate any federal, state or local law, statute, ordinance, regulation or ethical code; (d) be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing; (e) be obscene or contain child pornography or, if otherwise adult in nature or harmful to minors, but without containing child pornography; (f) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, or other computer programming routines that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; (g) create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers; or (h) link directly or indirectly to or include descriptions of goods or services that are prohibited under the Terms or that you do not have a right to link to or include. If you post material that is adult in nature, such material shall be posted with “Mature Audiences Only” in the listing title and appropriate notices to prevent unauthorized underage viewing and shall be distributed only to people legally permitted to receive such content. You may not consummate any transaction that was initiated using our Service that, by paying to us a fee, could cause us to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation. Furthermore, you may not resell or make any commercial use of our system or the content on the Site without Intro’s prior written consent. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age, and if we become aware that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personal information to us, we will promptly remove it from our systems.

Suspension or Termination of Service. Customers may terminate your service and account at your sole discretion and at any time by written notice via e-mail to info@intro.co. Terminations typically will be effective within thirty business days after our receipt of your termination notice, at which time your account will be closed and you will no longer enjoy access to your former account. Any fees accrued as of the effective date of termination will be payable according to the Terms. The procedure for Experts to terminate their accounts is set forth in the Expert Agreement.

At any time, with or without notice, for any or no reason, Intro reserves the right to modify or discontinue any portion or all of the Site or Services, and to restrict, suspend and terminate Customers’ and/or Expert accounts. 

Terms and Conditions Specific to Mobile Applications. Once you have registered as a User on the Site, you may elect to download and use different versions of the Intro mobile application (the “App”). Download and use of the App is required. By downloading and using one or more versions of the Intro App, you agree that in addition to this Agreement governing your use of the App and the Intro, the following terms and conditions specifically applicable to your use of the App (the “Mobile Terms”) also apply to you:

(a) You acknowledge that the Mobile Terms and the Agreement is between you and Intro, and not any other third-party beneficiary (as defined below in (b)) and you understand that Intro is solely responsible for the App;

(b) Additionally, Apple, Google, Inc., or Microsoft Corporation will be a third-party beneficiary to this contract if you access the Intro platform using Applications developed for Apple iOS, Android, or Microsoft Windows mobile devices, respectively;

(c) Your access and use of the Intro App using these devices is subject to terms set forth in the applicable third-party beneficiary’s terms of service;

(d) The third-party beneficiaries listed above are not parties to this Agreement and are not responsible for the provision or support of the Intro platform in any way;

(e) If you are accessing the Intro App through an Apple device, you acknowledge that Apple and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Apple”) are third party beneficiaries of the Agreement and upon your download of and use of the App indicating your assent and agreement to the Mobile Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Mobile Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. 

10. Charges, Rating the Expert, Refund and Cancellation Policy

Intro’s platform allows Customers to post questions to Experts in subject-matter categories, facilitates communication with Experts via chat, emails, calls, video calls, and online message boards, and enables delivery of answers to your questions, among other services (“Site Access Benefits”). Customers on the Site or may be presented with one of three payment models: (1) pay-per-call model; (2) membership model; and (3) additional services model (which is explained in Section E below).

Pay-Per-Call. With the pay-per-call model, you select the expert that you are willing to pay for to ask questions, and/or talk to. Once you have selected expert and submitted your payment information, your call will start or be booked for a later date and/or time. Customers are charged in one of three ways depending on the payment source, as described on the payment page: (i) when the call starts; (ii) when the call is scheduled; or (iii) when the call is extended.

Membership. Memberships allow Customers to receive Site Access Benefits for multiple in-app text messages on the Site for a monthly or other-period recurring fee. Customers who elect to pay for memberships are hereinafter referred to as “Members.” The fee is automatically charged to the Member’s payment source provided on the Site and placed in the Customer Payment Pool (account of all Members’ payments). Intro will post a notice of an auto-renewal to your account of your membership. Auto-renewal will remain in effect until withdrawn by you or terminated by Intro. You can stop auto-renewal of your membership by (1) sending a written notice of cancellation via e-mail to support@intro.com or (2) talking to a customer support agent via our online chatbot. You can cancel your membership at any time, no refunds will be provided but you will continue to have access to the Site Access Benefits until the next billing cycle.

Rating the Expert. Experts typically answer  Customers’ calls quickly. If the Expert requests further information before answering your question, you may wish to take advantage of the opportunity to provide more information to the Expert to allow the Expert to help you better.

Once the Expert answers your question and/or talks to you, you will be asked to rate the Expert. If you provide a rating of 1 or 2, Intro will watch the recorded call to better access your claims, so the Expert may try to help you better on a later call, if requested. By booking a call, you are authorizing Intro to charge your payment source (for example, the credit card or PayPal account you provided to Intro). A portion of your payments may be paid to the Expert instead of to Intro.

Intro does not guarantee that you will receive a response from an Expert, or that you will be satisfied with your communication with an Expert. For Pay-Per-Call Customers, in the rare instance that no Expert responds at all to your question, you agree that any amount up to $5 that was charged upon posting of your question may be retained by Intro in consideration for the Site Access Benefits received. See Refunds section below for information on requesting a refund.

Memberships - Additional Terms. Intro Memberships are intended and authorized only for personal, non-transferrable, not-for-resale use only. Intro should not be used for purposes of plagiarism in any context or in cheating in the academic setting. Notwithstanding any other terms, Intro reserves the right to cancel your Intro Membership in its entirety at any time and for any reason, with or without prior notice, including, but not limited to, your excessive use (as determined by Intro in its sole discretion). In the event that Intro cancels a Intro Membership, it will refund the current period’s fee, unless the account was terminated for violation of use.

In order to prevent fraudulent use of the Membership program by Customers, Customers who have purchased Memberships are ineligible to participate as Experts on Intro during the term of their Membership, as are their immediate family members (spouse, parent, child, sibling and spouse or “step” of each) and those living in the same households (persons, whether related or not, who lived in the same residence as the Member for at least three (3) months during the twelve (12)-month period preceding the start of the Intro Membership).

Some categories are not covered by Memberships – for privacy reasons. Members will be bound by their Membership Details so please be sure to review them carefully.

Refunds, Cancellations, Abuse and Special Programs.

No Refunds except as set forth herein. All membership fees are non-refundable. Memberships that are cancelled in the middle of the payment period will not have pro-rated billing, refunds or other credits. To cancel a Membership, you may use one of the following methods: 1) write an email to support@intro.co requesting cancellation of your membership, or 3) log into your Intro account, under the “My Account” page, click the Membership button on the left and then click on the “Cancel membership” button. You may be offered a chat to request your feedback on your membership experience before re-directing you to a self-help page where you can submit your request to cancel.

Intro maintains the right to initiate special incentive pricing, membership, and other programs. These may be limited, at Intro’s sole discretion, to defined and limited Users or non-Users. Any promotional monies or credits placed into Customer accounts by Intro for use towards Site Access Benefits on the Site remain the property of Intro (they never become the property of Customers and never become refundable to the Customer), and unless otherwise stated on the Site or in an email to a Customer, will be usable only for thirty (30) days.

21. Dispute Resolution

If you are an Expert with a dispute, claim or controversy of any sort and of any nature (collectively, “dispute”) against Intro in your capacity as an Expert, then the arbitration agreement in the Expert Agreement applies instead of this one.

This Section D.21 may be referred to as the parties’ “Dispute Resolution Agreement.” If you have a dispute with Intro or if Intro has a dispute with you and such dispute cannot be resolved informally, such dispute will be resolved on an individual basis in accordance with the provisions set forth below:

(a) Informal Resolution. Prior to initiating mediation or arbitration, the party with a grievance must:

(i) Notify the other party, in writing, of the facts of the dispute and all damages claimed. Such a writing must be sent to the User’s email address on file with Intro, or  Radical Group Inc, 1222 Electric Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90291 or intro@intro.co, whichever is applicable (“Dispute Notification”);

(ii) The party receiving the Dispute Notification has thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to respond.

(iii) The other party then has 15 days to reply to the response.

(b)Mediation..

(c) ARBITRATION. ANY DISPUTE NOT RESOLVED INFORMALLY OR THROUGH MEDIATION SHALL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION SO LONG AS SUCH DISPUTES ARISE IN ANY WAY OUT OF THESE TERMS, ANY TRANSACTION WITH INTRO, YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND/OR ANY INTRO SERVICE, OR ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND INTRO. THE ARBITRATION PROVISION EXTENDS TO DISPUTES UNDER THE TELEPHONE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT (“TCPA”).

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, THAT THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AGREEMENT IS MADE IN THE COURSE OF INTERSTATE COMMERCE; AND THAT THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, 9 U.S.C. §1 ET. SEQ. (THE “FAA”) AND NOT STATE LAW GOVERNS THE INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCMENT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE ARBITRABILITY OF DISPUTES, WHICH SHALL BE DECIDED BY THE ARBITRATOR. THIS CHOICE OF LAW PROVISION APPLIES ONLY TO THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AGREEMENT, AND NOT TO THE REST OF THIS AGREEMENT OR TERMS.

Copies of these rules can be obtained at the AAA’s website (www.adr.org) or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Either party can initiate a demand for arbitration. Each party will be responsible for its own costs, including paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator may include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. In the event of any inconsistency between this Dispute Resolution Agreement and the applicable rules of the AAA, this Dispute Resolution Agreement shall govern.

Consent to Jurisdiction in California: The parties agree that the arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California unless you and Intro agree otherwise.

(d) CLASS ACTION WAIVER. YOU AND INTRO EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT:

(i) ANY ARBITRATION PROCEEDING WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS;

(ii)YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, MASS, COLLECTIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING;

(iii)THERE SHALL BE NO CLASS CLAIMS, CONSOLIDATION, OR JOINDER ALLOWED IN ANY ARBITRATION BETWEEN THE PARTIES; (iv) IF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS FOUND INAPPLICABLE TO YOUR DISPUTE WITH INTRO, THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER WILL CONTINUE TO APPLY IN LITIGATION; AND (v) YOU AGREE THAT THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF OUR CONTRACT AND THESE TERMS AND THAT IT MAY NOT BE SEVERED. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT USERS INTO ONE PROCEEDING, NOR SHALL THE ARBITRATOR HAVE THE POWER TO HEAR ARBITRATION AS A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. SIMILARLY, ANY CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AGREEMENT THAT INTRO MAY HAVE AGAINST USER MAY NOT BE BROUGHT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION PROCEEDING.

(e) Survivability; Right to Consult. This Dispute Resolution Agreement shall survive expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason. User acknowledges and agrees that he/she is entering into this Dispute Resolution Agreement voluntarily and without any duress or undue influence by Intro or anyone else. User further acknowledges and agrees that he/she has carefully read this Dispute Resolution Agreement and that User has asked any questions needed for User to understand the terms, consequences and binding effect of this Dispute Resolution Agreement and fully understand it, including that User is waiving his/her right to a jury trial. Finally, User agrees that he/she has been provided an opportunity to seek the advice of an attorney of User’s choice before agreeing to this Dispute Resolution Agreement.

22. Agreement; Assignment; Miscellaneous

The Terms constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the Agreement between you and us on the subject matter addressed herein. It supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreement, oral or written, and any other communications, representations, warranties and understanding relating to the subject matter of the Terms. For those Users who have become Experts, nothing in this Agreement supersedes the terms of the Expert Agreement, and in the event of a conflict between this Agreement (or later versions of this Agreement) and the Expert Agreement, the terms of the Expert Agreement shall prevail. If there is a conflict between an oral or written representation of any Intro employee or agent and the Terms (other than modifications to the Terms executed in writing by the CEO or authorized-in-fact representative of Intro), the Terms will prevail. To the extent the Terms are in conflict or inconsistent with one another, this Agreement and the Privacy Policy will prevail over other Terms of the Site; also, this Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and disclaimers will prevail over FAQs, and other rules and policies on the Site. If any provision(s) of the Terms is held by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties and the other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Intro’s failure to exercise or enforce any of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of Intro’s right to exercise or enforce the Terms as to the same or another instance. Headings in this Agreement are for purposes of reference only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning of the Terms.

You agree that Intro may assign the Terms to any other entity of its choosing, with or without notice to you. You may not assign the Terms to any other party for any reason, including, but not limited to, because your interaction with other users of the Site, the pricing offered, and fraud mechanisms in place, are based upon individual usage. Intro shall not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies unless such waiver is in writing and signed by an officer of Intro. No delay or omission on the part of Intro in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies on future occasions. The section titles in the Terms are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance.

This Section, along with Sections 6, 10 (with respect to amounts remaining in your account as of termination), 11, 13, 16, 17, 18, 20, and 21 above will survive any termination of this Agreement.

E. Additional Services

You may be presented with an offer for services outside of the Site’s standard call platform (“Additional Services”).

Intro is only a venue which facilitates communication between Experts and potential Users of Additional Services. It does not provide any of the substance or content of any Additional Service initiated through Intro’s platform.

Intro will in no way be liable for any acts or omissions of Experts in performing Additional Services (or any services) for you.

23. Special Provisions Relating to Remote Desktop Users

If you agree to accept Remote Desktop services (whether such services are Information Only or Beyond Information Only) from an Expert, you understand and agree that by accepting such offer for services, you are agreeing to give the Expert full access to and control over your computer (including permission to download and use software on your computer, gather system data, modify settings, etc.) for computer diagnosis, service and repair. You agree that any third-party software acquired, installed or used during the Remote Desktop session, by you or by the Expert, will be licensed to you, and that any terms of use relating to the third-party software are agreed to by you, that Intro may record via video the Remote Desktop Session for internal purposes, and that you will not use the Expert’s services to do anything unlawful.

24. Special Provisions Relating to Additional Services in the Legal, Medical, Health, Pet, and Large Animal Categories

Additional Services may be: (1) “Information Only;” or (2) “Beyond Information Only.” “Information Only” Additional Services are those additional services outside the Site’s standard question-and-answer platform and may be conducted off the Site (either by phone, chat, email, remote desktop or any other third-party tool) but remain for general informational services only. Additional Services that are “Beyond Information Only” facilitate Legal, Financial, Medical, Health, Pet, and Large Animal Category Users’ exchange of services that are more than informational and that could potentially evolve into a professional relationship.

Information Only Premium Services:

If you decide to accept Information Only Additional Services, you understand that by receiving such Additional Services, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:

a. Any Information Only Additional Services you receive from a legal, financial, tax, medical or veterinary professional are for general informational purposes only.

b. The legal, financial, tax, medical or veterinary professional from whom you are receiving Information Only Additional Services is not acting as your attorney, tax advisor, stock broker, financial advisor, doctor or veterinarian.

c. The legal, financial, tax, medical or veterinary professional from whom you are receiving Information Only Additional Services may not be licensed in the jurisdiction where you are located.

d. The Information Only Additional Services are not subject to an attorney-client/ accountant-client/fiduciary-client/broker-client/doctor-patient relationship or attorney-client/ accountant-client/doctor-patient privilege. Before applying the Information Only Additional Services to your specific situation, you should consult with a professional licensed to practice in your jurisdiction.

e. Any amounts a Customer pays for Information Only Additional Services are divided into two distinct parts: (i) Intro’s fee for enabling the call, offer and/or fulfillment of Additional Services and related services (“Additional Site Access Benefits”); and (ii) the Expert’s fee for the specific Additional Service provided to the User. Intro does not share in any Expert’s fee.

f. Once you accept an offer for Information Only Additional Services, your payment method on file, if any, will be automatically charged the Additional Services amount. If you have already asked a question, received a response and have not yet rated the Expert, if you then proceed to accept such Expert’s offer of Additional Services, you will be deemed to have accepted the response as if you had given such Expert a “5” rating (See Section 9, Rating the Expert, above).

Beyond Information Only Additional Services

If you decide to accept Beyond Information Only Additional Services, you understand that by receiving such Additional Services, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:

a. Intro is not involved in any agreements between you and any Experts from whom you choose to receive Beyond Information Only Additional Services.

b. Intro does not form any attorney-client/finacial advisor-client/broker-client/doctor-patient/accountant-client relationship with any User through its call platform or by virtue of any Beyond Information Only Additional Services.

c. Intro will endeavor to find an Expert relevant to your request for Additional Services Beyond Information Only. Nevertheless, Intro does not guarantee that any Expert who contacts you can fulfill your request for Additional Services Beyond Information Only. Providing a platform where potential Customers can engage the services of Experts who offer Additional Services Beyond Information Only does not imply an endorsement or recommendation for any particular Expert (except as specified in Section 7 above).

d. Intro is not a law firm and it does not provide any legal advice, counsel, or recommendation to Users, nor is Intro a lawyer referral service.

Payment for Beyond Information Only Additional Services will be described in the particular offer. Intro’s payment structures take into consideration fee sharing restrictions under various professional ethics rules.

Expert Agreement

Updated: June 01, 2020

1. Acceptance of Terms

Welcome to Intro (“Service” or “Site”) owned and operated by Radical Group Inc (“Intro”).

By applying to become an Expert on the Site, you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the terms of this Expert Agreement (the “Agreement”), the privacy policy, expert community guidelines, and all rules, policies and disclaimers posted on the Site or about which you are notified (collectively “Terms”). Please review all of the Terms carefully before applying to become an Expert on the Site.

By using the Site, you: (i) agree to be bound by the Terms; (ii) represent that you are over the age of eighteen (18) and able to form legally binding contracts; (iii) agree and acknowledge that by using the Service you are accepting a benefit that cannot be disgorged; (iv) acknowledge that the Service is subject to U.S. export controls and agree that you will comply with U.S. export controls; and (v) represent that you are neither located in a sanctioned country nor a prohibited person.

2. Definitions

The words “User,” “you” and “your” refer to the individual or entity that creates an Intro account. “Intro,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Intro. “Customer” refers to the person who asks a question on the Site. “Expert” refers to the person who answers a question on the Site. 

3. Electronic Communications and Right to Modify Terms

When you visit Intro or send us e-mails, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on the Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. You agree to provide us with, and maintain in your Intro account profile, your current and active email address.

Intro reserves the right to change, revise or modify the Terms (including, but not limited to, fees) at any time by posting the amended terms on the Site. All amended terms shall automatically be effective upon posting; provided, however, that those changes that Intro, in its sole discretion, deems material changes to the Terms will be effective upon the earlier of: (1) the agreement of the User; or (2) thirty (30) days after notice to the existing User via an email from an @Intro.co email address to the User’s email address on file with Intro or via other means including, but not limited to, a banner, message, or other conspicuous notice on the Intro website. Your continued use of the Service will signify your acceptance of the changes regardless of whether you actually saw or read the notice regarding such change(s). If you do not accept the changes, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using Intro. The latest Terms will be posted on the Site, and you should review them prior to using the Site.

4. The Website

The Intro Site is an online venue for informational and educational purposes, owned and operated by Intro, that exists solely to broker relationships between Experts and potential Customers of those Experts who are interested in purchasing their Expert services. Intro is not in the business of providing or selling information or education that is within any Expert’s area of expertise. Users of the Site, not Intro, provide the content in Posts (defined below). The Experts determine, in their sole discretion, which calls to answer and engage. Experts are not employees or agents of Intro. Rather, they are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers and, as such, are along with Customers simply Users of the Site.

Intro is not involved in the conversations between Experts and Customers. Intro shall not be liable for any acts or omissions of Experts, content in Posts or calls, the ability of Experts to answer questions, or the ability of Customers to pay for answers. We cannot ensure that a Customer will complete a transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Intro reserves the right, but is not obligated, to refuse to post or to remove any content on the Site.

EMERGENCY QUESTIONS AND CRISIS SITUATIONS (particularly regarding medical or mental health issues) should not be directed to the Site and should, instead be directed immediately by telephone or in-person to qualified professionals (e.g., in the U.S., call 911). The Site is not the appropriate venue to deal with such situations.

5. Posts Are Not Private or Confidential; Anonymity

The Site is an Internet-based forum.  Information and materials submitted in the content of questions, answers, calls, requests for information, responses, profiles, signatures, qualifications, comments, and posts in the Expert Forum and other places where Users communicate on the Site (collectively “Posts”) is not private or confidential, nor is it protected by attorney-client, doctor-patient, or any other privilege, and it may be read, collected, and used by others. For example, search engines may index questions, answers, and other Posts to allow them to appear in search engine results (e.g., if someone does a search on google.com or another search engine, questions, answers, and other Posts on Intro.co that relate to the search may appear in the search results list). 

6. Expert Representations and Covenants

By agreeing to this Expert Agreement and completing the online registration process, you are representing and agreeing that:

(a) All information you provide in your registration with Intro relates to yourself only and is accurate, complete, and not misleading.

(b) You accurately describe your background, skills, knowledge, and your level of experience (including professional licenses, certifications, education, employment, etc.).

(c) You will not misrepresent yourself, such as, but not limited to, using or creating a misleading username.

(d) (1) You will maintain and update the information described in subsections (a) – (d) above within twenty-four (24) hours of any changes so that it remains true, accurate, and complete. In addition, if any change to such information alters the status of any of your credentials that have been verified for purposes of being an Expert on the Site (e.g., active license becomes inactive or suspended, disciplinary investigation is opened, etc.), you will notify Intro of such change by sending an email to experts@intro.co within twenty-four (24) hours of the change. In addition, if such change makes you ineligible to be an Expert on the Site, then you must immediately cease answering questions on the Site.

(2) Intro reserves the right, and Expert agrees to comply, to periodically audit the credentials of any Expert on the platform.

(e) You will not answer questions in any of the other categories or subcategories if you do not meet the requirements of those categories or subcategories. As an example, you will not answer questions in any of the Legal, Medical or Veterinary categories or subcategories unless you are a licensed attorney, MD/DO or veterinarian (or the local equivalent), respectively, with an active license in good standing. If you are unclear about the requirements for Experts in particular categories or subcategories, please email experts@intro.co. 

(f) You will provide competent answers that are within your realm of expertise and any applicable credentials only, and will use at least a reasonable standard of care in providing answers. A reasonable standard of care is the higher of: (i) the standard you apply in your profession not conducted on the Site; or (ii) the standard of care required by the applicable profession.

(g) Experts in the Medical, Health, Veterinary, Pet, or Large Animal categories shall provide general information only, not medical or veterinary advice.   They shall not diagnose, treat, or recommend treatment or a course of action that should only be performed or recommended after an in-person examination or meeting, and they shall not act in a manner or engage in a form of communication that would establish a professional-client relationship on the Site; however, they may do so outside of the Site.

(h) Experts in the Legal categories must be attorneys licensed to practice law, and be in good standing, in at least one jurisdiction in the United States or foreign country. Such Experts shall provide general information only, such as providing descriptions of general principles of law, and shall not provide legal advice. In responding to questions, Experts in the Legal Category shall not apply their legal knowledge or skills to resolve or advise on the Customer’s specific factual circumstances described in the question, such as by proposing a specific course of action (other than advising the User to seek the advice of an attorney licensed to practice in the relevant jurisdiction). Experts in the Legal Category shall not form an attorney-client relationship on the Site; however, they may do so outside of the Site.

(i) You will not do anything to manipulate, undermine, or disrupt the integrity of any Customer, Expert, or other feedback ratings, reports, or systems on the Site, including, but not limited to, by filing false reports about other Experts. You will not harass or threaten any other User of the Site.

(j) You will not disclose (which a Customer will be prompted to rate) any information that is classified more aptly as an “Information Request.”

(k) You will abide by all the laws, rules, regulations, and ethical standards pertaining to your profession and/or the profession applicable to categories in which you are an Expert (including, if applicable, any ethical obligations relating to conflicts of interest).

(l) You agree that any content you provide on the Site and your use of the Site or any additional services (whether such additional services are Informational or Beyond-Information Only, as defined below) initiated through the Site shall not: (a) be fraudulent, inaccurate or misleading; (b) infringe any third party’s proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy (c) be illegal or violate any federal, state, or local law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or ethical code; (d) be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing; (e) be obscene or contain child pornography; (f) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, or other computer programming routines that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; (g) create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers; or (h) link directly or indirectly to, or include descriptions of, goods or services that are prohibited under the Terms or that you do not have a right to link to or include. If you post material that is adult in nature, such material shall be posted with “Mature Audiences Only” in the listing title and appropriate notices to prevent unauthorized underage viewing and shall be distributed only to people legally permitted to receive such content. You may not consummate any transaction that was initiated using our Service that, by paying to us a fee, could cause us to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation. Furthermore, you may not resell or make any commercial use of our system or the content on the Site without Intro prior written consent. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under thirteen (13) years of age, and if we become aware that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has submitted personal information to us, we will promptly remove it from our systems. 

7. Duration and Termination of Agreement

(a) This Agreement shall be for an initial duration of thirty days after Intro approves the Expert’s request to use the Site as an Expert, and will automatically renew for thirty-day intervals on the thirtieth day of the initial duration and of each successive term thereafter (each a "Duration"), unless and until one party gives the other at least ten days' written notice before the end of the then-current Duration of its intention not to renew this Agreement. You may terminate your service and account by written notice via e-mail to info@intro.co. Terminations typically will be effective within seven (7) business days after our receipt of your termination notice, at which time your account will be closed, and you will no longer be able to access your former account. Any payments accrued as of the effective date of termination will be payable according to the Terms.

(b) Intro can terminate this Agreement in the event of a breach of this Agreement by the Expert, provided that Intro gives the Expert notice of the breach of the Agreement (with notice of temporarily suspended access to the Site), with a reasonable opportunity to cure the breach within twenty days, in situations involving, for example, failure to qualify to provide services as an Expert in the approved subject matter, or Intro’s good faith belief that the Expert poses a risk to the safety or health of others; or the Expert’s engagement in fraud, gaming, or other improper use of the Site or the Services with or through a Customer that has a Membership, which allow Customers who are “Members” to receive the benefits of the Site for multiple questions on the Site for a monthly or other-period recurring fee.

(c) Either party may terminate the Expert Agreement immediately and without notice upon a material breach.

8. Informational and Educational Purposes Only

The Intro Site is a venue for informational and educational purposes only. The formation of a professional-client relationship on the Site is prohibited; however, the formation of a professional-client relationship outside the Site is not prohibited, as long as the User requested those services. Promoting non-free services, provided by the Expert, outside of the Intro site is prohibited, except in the case the User requests this information. 

9. Content and License

Any information or communications provided in questions, answers, calls, video calls, messages, requests for information, responses, profiles, Expert signatures, qualifications, comments, and posts in the Expert Forum and other places where Users communicate with one another on the Site (“Posts”) will not be considered confidential and may be used by Intro for any purpose. This may include, but is not limited to, using your signature and/or profile information in emails sent to Customers alerting them to your postings. You understand and agree that Intro may send Customers emails pertaining to their questions and your answers that are signed by your username (but sent on your behalf from a Intro email address). For example, Intro may let the Customer know that you have sent the Customer an email, have responded to their question, and/or have not been paid for an answer (and the Customer should therefore remit payment). As between you and Intro, Intro will maintain whatever ownership interest you have in and to the Posts you provide on the Site. Intro reserves the right to remove any or all of your Posts, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice.

You grant to Intro a non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights, including the right to use, reproduce, display, edit, copy, modify, transmit, publicly perform or create derivative works thereof, that you have in your Posts, in any media now known or not currently known, with respect to any such Posts.

To allow Intro to assist you in protecting your copyrights in your Answers, at its sole discretion, you grant Intro the right to act on your behalf solely in submitting DMCA takedown notices to other websites to remove copies of your Answers on Intro.co from other websites. You agree to notify Intro at dmca-agent@intro.co within twenty-four (24) hours of posting any portion of your Answers on another website or granting permission to another person or entity to do so, so that Intro does not submit a DMCA takedown notice for such content. If you do not wish Intro to assist you in protecting your copyrights in this manner, please send an email to that effect to dmca-agent@intro.co . You agree that Intro has no obligation to make any searches or submit any DMCA takedown notices on your behalf.

10. Fees

Customers on Intro may be presented with one or two payment models: (1) pay-per-call (“PPC”) model; and (2) membership model. Question values are based on the Customer payment amount and other factors including but not limited to, Customer-related needs and estimated costs to Intro, which factors are determined and may be changed from time-to-time by Intro in its sole discretion, as well as the factors explained below. Expert may receive fees as follows: (a) when a Customer rates an answer 2 (out of 5) or higher, the question value is placed into the Expert account. Payments to Experts from Customers do not accrue interest; or (b) in select categories of questions, tiered pricing shall determine what an Expert receives in fees for each question. An Expert qualifies for a pricing tier based on the following: (a) Each answer an expert provides to a customer will be rated based on either a Customer rating or a rating from an independent third party (the “Answer rating”). Each expert receives an aggregate rating (the “Expert Rating”) based on the percentage of questions the Expert answered and the average Answer Rating and access to different pricing tiers is based on such Expert Rating.

You acknowledge that Intro has no control over, and makes no representation or warranty of any kind, as to the ability or willingness of other Users to pay for the answers provided by Experts. In addition, you acknowledge that you are never required by Intro to answer any questions on the Site.

Once you have more than Twenty U.S. Dollars (US$10) of payments from Customers in your account (you cannot place funds into your account to reach $10; it must be accumulated through Customer payments), you may request payment via the link in your app. Intro transfers properly requested Customer payments to Experts via PayPal or Stripe, within 7 days (or, in its discretion, Intro may choose to forward Customer payments even without an Expert’s request for payment). You agree that Intro has the right to produce discounts, coupons, and/or credits that Users can apply towards reducing the price of a service, affecting the fee that Intro collects from the Expert. You agree that Intro has the right to resolve Customer complaints as it deems necessary or advisable, including, in Intro’s sole discretion, issuing refunds to Customers to settle disputes. If Intro decides to issue a refund to a Customer, Intro may seek reimbursement from the Expert for such refund, or Intro may offset any refunds against any future Customer payments to be forwarded to the Expert. Intro also reserves the right to resolve accounting discrepancies with Customers in its sole discretion.

If Intro believes, in its sole discretion, that any Customer funds were paid to an Expert under suspicious circumstances or that funds were derived from a suspicious Customer account, Intro will investigate the situation until it has reached an adequate resolution, as determined by Intro in its sole discretion. The investigation or resolution may require the involvement of certain third parties, such as an applicable credit card company. Such an investigation may require Intro to put a hold on an Expert’s account. Intro will make commercially reasonable efforts not to exceed a 90 day hold on an Expert’s account during such an investigation.

Intro disclaims any warranty that its billing and payment system is without error. If an Expert believes there is a problem with Intro’s billing or payment system, the Expert should notify Intro by email to experts@intro.co within thirty (30) days of such problem. Upon receipt of the notification of such a problem, Intro will, in good faith, work to remedy any alleged payment errors. 

11. Question Value

You are prohibited from negotiating payment with a User, regarding answers you post to the Site, unless expressly allowed by Intro.

12. Expert Accounts and Relationship to Intro

You may not share your account with, nor use the account of, anyone else. You will be solely and fully liable and responsible for all activities and answers provided under your username and account. In addition, if any Intro account of yours has been suspended or terminated, you may not open another account on the Site.

No relationship (such as partnership, agent, joint venturer, or employee) between you and Intro is created by this Agreement or your participation on the Site. You acknowledge that you are not an employee or agent of Intro but are, like Customers, only Users of the Site. You shall act in accordance with this status and shall not hold yourself out as an officer, employee or agent of Intro, nor make any claim based on any right or privilege applicable to Intro’s employees. Under no circumstances shall you look to Intro as your employer, or as a partner, agent, or principal. Nothing regarding your participation on the Site will be considered as an endorsement, referral or recommendation by Intro of you or the answers you provide and you will not, either on the Site or in any other forum or by any other means, suggest such an endorsement.

It is the express intention of Intro and the Expert that the Expert be an independent contractor. Nothing in this Agreement shall in any way be construed to constitute the Expert as an agent, employee, or representative of Intro. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Expert is not authorized to bind Intro to any liability or obligation or to represent that the Expert has any such authority. Expert agrees to furnish all tools and materials necessary to answer questions on the Site and shall incur all expenses associated with such performance. Expert further agrees that any use of site tools, Intro’s mobile application or any other tools (“Tools”) offered by Intro is optional and such Tools are purely offered for Expert’s convenience and usage of such Tools are not mandatory. Expert acknowledges and agrees that Expert is obligated to report as income all compensation received by Intro pursuant to this Agreement. Expert agrees to and acknowledges the obligation to pay all self-employment and other taxes on such income. Expert will receive no Intro-sponsored benefits such as, but not limited to, paid vacation, sick leave, medical insurance, and 401k participation. If Expert is reclassified by a state or federal agency, court, or arbitrator as Intro’s employee, Expert will become a reclassified employee and will receive no benefits from Intro, except those mandated by state or federal law, even if by the terms of Intro’s benefit plans or programs of the Company in effect at the time of such reclassification, Expert would otherwise be eligible for such benefits.

13. Limited Exclusivity and Other Agreements

By agreeing to this Expert Agreement and completing the online registration process, you are agreeing that:

(a) You will not post – or authorize anyone else to post – any portion of your calls or answers on Intro or any other fee-based question-and-answer website, unless that question-and-answer component is via the Intro referral program or it is a website on which you are the only person answering questions. This does not prohibit you from providing the same substantive answer to a question, but only from providing it using the same words as used on the Site.

(b) The provisions of this Agreement are not intended to prevent you from practicing your profession, but only from engaging in the limited activity described therein.

(c) You will not make any statement that disparages Intro, its services, products, directors, officers, employees, shareholders or agents, except as required by law or in communications exclusively to Intro.

(d) You will not provide information on any other websites about Intro, unless you expressly state that your statements are not made on behalf of and have not been approved by Intro.

(e) You will not use any automated programs to automatically lock questions that are posted on the Intro website or responded to messages sent to you.

14. Confidentiality

21. Dispute Resolution: Mediation and Arbitration

This Section 21 may be referred to as the parties’ “Dispute Resolution Agreement.” If you have a dispute with Intro or if Intro has a dispute with you and such dispute cannot be resolved informally, such dispute will be resolved on an individual basis in accordance with the provisions set forth below:

(a) Informal Resolution.  Prior to initiating mediation or arbitration, the party with a grievance must:

(1) Notify the other party, in writing, of the facts of the dispute and all damages claimed. Such a writing must be sent to (a) the Expert’s email address on file with Intro, or (b) Radical Group Inc, 1222 Electric Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90291, or legal@intro.co , whichever is applicable (“Dispute Notification”).

(2) The party receiving the Dispute Notification has thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to respond.

(3) The other party then has 15 days to reply to the response.

(b) Mediation.  If the dispute is not resolved informally, either party may make a demand for mediation, with the other party’s consent, by filing either a (i) Request for AAA Online Mediation for Claims under $10,000 with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”); or (ii) Request for Mediation with the AAA. To file a request for mediation for a claim under $10,000, you must go to the following website: http://services.adr.org/eroom/faces/welcome_and_

steps.jspx   http://www.aaamediation.com/. If that link does not work, please contact legal@intro.co at Intro for updated information. If you are requesting mediation for a claim that is worth $10,000 or more, you must go to the following website to file such a claim: https://www.adr.org/aaa/faces/services/disputeresolut

ionservices. If that link does not work, please contact legal@intro.co at Intro for updated information. If either party requests mediation and both parties consent to mediation, the costs of mediation will be borne equally by the parties.

(c) Arbitration.

(i) Mutual agreement to arbitrate. If mediation does not occur or if mediation does not resolve the dispute, then both parties agree that all disputes between them, including without limitation, those disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement, the Services provided under this Agreement, the termination of this Agreement, the use of the Site, and the “Terms” as defined in the Agreement, shall be determined exclusively by final and binding arbitration before a single, neutral arbitrator as described herein.

(ii) Covered claims. Claims subject to arbitration under this Dispute Resolution Agreement include, but are not limited to, the following types of claims between and among Expert on the one hand, and Intro, its subsidiaries, affiliates, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, benefit plans, or agents, any alleged joint employers, and any of Intro’s Users (including Customers and Experts), on the other hand: breach of contract; discrimination, harassment, or retaliation; wrongful discharge; negligence or other tort claims including defamation, libel, slander, fraud, invasion of privacy, and infliction of emotional distress; claims for wages, overtime, benefits, or other compensation; and all other statutory, regulatory, contractual, or tort claims or claims of violation of any international, federal/national, state/provincial, or local statute, ordinance, governmental enactment, common law duty, provision, or doctrine. Except as provided below, the parties voluntarily waive all rights to trial in court before a judge or jury on claims between them. Judgment upon the arbitrator's award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The only disputes and actions excluded from this Dispute Resolution Agreement are: (a) actions to enforce this Dispute Resolution Agreement, compel arbitration, or claims by either party seeking temporary injunctive relief prior to the appointment of the arbitrator; and (b) claims for which this Dispute Resolution Agreement would be invalid as a matter of law. Individual knowingly and voluntarily waives the right to file or seek relief in a court seeking recovery of money damages.

(iii) Arbitration rules and selection of arbitrator. Unless the parties agree otherwise in writing, the AAA shall administer the resolution of covered disputes pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA rules"). Copies of these rules can be obtained at the AAA’s website (www.adr.org) or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68 (“Offer of Judgment”) shall apply, as well. In the event of any inconsistency between this Dispute Resolution Agreement and the applicable rules of the AAA, this Dispute Resolution Agreement shall govern. The parties shall have 30 days from receipt of a notice of arbitration to select a mutually agreeable arbitrator. If the parties are unable to jointly select the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall be selected as provided in the AAA’s rules.

(iv) Commencement of arbitration and location of hearing. A party wishing to initiate arbitration must notify the other party in writing by hand delivery or certified mail. The notice must identify the party requesting the arbitration, and it must describe the facts upon which the claim is based, the date and location of any occurrences giving rise to the claim, and the remedy requested. Notice must be sent to the Expert’s email address on file with Intro, or Radical Group Inc, 1222 Electric Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90291 or legal@intro.co . The arbitration hearing shall be held in Los Angeles, California.

(v) The payment of filing and arbitration fees will be governed by the relevant AAA rules subject to the following modifications:

1. If the Expert initiates arbitration under this Dispute Resolution Agreement and is otherwise required to pay a filing fee under the relevant AAA rules, Intro agrees that, unless the claim is for $5,000 or more, the Expert’s share of the filing fee is limited to $50, and after the Expert submits proof of payment of the filing fee to Intro, Intro will promptly reimburse the Expert for all but $50 of the filing fee. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of the Expert’s claim or the relief sought in the claim is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA rules.

2. If Intro initiates arbitration under this Dispute Resolution Agreement, Intro will pay all costs unique to arbitration (as compared to the costs of adjudicating the same claims before a court or agency), including the regular and customary administrative fees and expenses charged by AAA. Any dispute as to whether a cost is unique to arbitration shall be resolved by the arbitrator.

3. Except as provided for in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68, each party shall pay its own attorneys’ fees and any costs that are not unique to the arbitration (i.e., costs that each party would incur if the claim(s) were litigated in a court or agency such as costs to subpoena witnesses and/or documents; take depositions and purchase deposition transcripts; copy documents; etc.).

(vi) Authority of the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have the same authority to order remedies to individual claimants as would a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall also have the same authority to decide dispositive motions as would a court, though he or she may establish appropriate and less formal procedures for such motions consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration proceedings. The arbitrator shall have the authority to issue subpoenas to compel the attendance of witnesses at the arbitration hearing and to compel the production of documents during discovery. Except as provided below, the arbitrator shall have the authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Dispute Resolution Agreement, including without limitation any claim that the Dispute Resolution Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to hear disputes not recognized by existing law and shall dismiss such claims upon motion by either party in accordance with the standards and burdens generally applicable in federal district court.

(vii) Waiver of class, collective, and/or representative actions. Expert understands and agrees that all claims covered by this Dispute Resolution Agreement that Expert may have against Intro must be brought in Expert’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action or representative action proceeding. Similarly, any claims covered by this Dispute Resolution Agreement that Intro may have against Expert may not be brought as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action or representative action proceeding. Expert understands that there is no right or authority for any dispute covered by this Dispute Resolution Agreement to be heard or arbitrated on a collective action basis, class action basis, as a private attorney general, or on bases involving claims or disputes brought in a representative capacity on behalf of the general public, on behalf of other Intro company employees (or any of them) or on behalf of other persons alleged to be similarly situated. Expert understands that there are no bench or jury trials and no class actions or representative actions permitted under this Dispute Resolution Agreement. The arbitrator shall not consolidate claims of different Experts into one proceeding, nor shall the arbitrator have the power to hear arbitration as a class action, collective action, or representative action. Any disputes regarding the enforceability or scope of this provision including, but not limited to, whether class, collective, or representative actions are authorized in arbitration by this Dispute Resolution Agreement, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction rather than by an arbitrator.

(viii) Form of the award. The arbitrator shall render a written award setting forth his or her findings of fact and conclusions of law.

(ix) WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED EXPRESSLY HEREIN, THE PARTIES VOLUNTARILY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY ON ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN THEM COVERED BY THIS AGREEMENT.

(x) Governing law applicable to this Dispute Resolution Agreement. The parties acknowledge that Section 21 contains the parties' "Dispute Resolution Agreement"; that this Dispute Resolution Agreement is made in the course of interstate commerce; that any arbitration under this Dispute Resolution Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1 et. seq. (the “FAA”); and the parties are subject to the FAA for purposes of the Dispute Resolution Agreement. This choice of law provision applies only to this Dispute Resolution Agreement, and not to the rest of this Agreement or Terms.

(xi) Attorney’s fees; survival; and right to consult. The arbitrator shall award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in any arbitration arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Terms, and where otherwise provided by applicable law. This Dispute Resolution Agreement section shall survive termination of this Agreement. Expert acknowledges and agrees that he/she is entering into this Dispute Resolution Agreement voluntarily and without any duress or undue influence by Intro or anyone else. Expert further acknowledges and agrees that he/she has carefully read this Dispute Resolution Agreement and that Expert has asked any questions needed for Expert to understand the terms, consequences and binding effect of this Dispute Resolution Agreement and fully understand it, including that Expert is waiving his/her right to a jury trial. Finally, Expert agrees that he/she has been provided an opportunity to seek the advice of an attorney of Expert’s choice before agreeing to this Dispute Resolution Agreement.

22. Choice of Law

The Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Idaho, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions, except as set forth in Section 21 of this Agreement (the “Dispute Resolution Agreement”).

23. Miscellaneous

Failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement by Intro shall not constitute a waiver of any provision by Intro. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of the Agreement. All provisions not affected by the invalidity shall remain in full force and effect.

The Terms constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the Agreement between you and us. It supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreement, oral or written, and any other communications, representations, warranties and understanding relating to the subject matter of the Terms. If there is a conflict between an oral or written representation of any Intro employee or agent and the Terms (other than modifications to the Terms executed in writing by the CEO or authorized-in-fact representative of Intro), the Terms will prevail. To the extent the Terms are in conflict or inconsistent with one another, this Agreement and the Privacy Policy will prevail for Experts over other terms, rules, policies, and FAQs on the Site. If any provision(s) of the Terms is held by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties and the other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Intro’s failure to exercise or enforce any of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of Intro’s right to exercise or enforce the Terms as to the same or another instance.

Headings in this and Related Agreements are for purposes of reference only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning of the Terms.

You agree that Intro may assign the Terms to any other entity of its choosing, with or without notice to you. You may not assign the Terms to any other party for any reason. Intro shall not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies unless such waiver is in writing and signed by an authorized officer of Intro. No delay or omission on the part of Intro in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies on future occasions.

Certain sections of this Agreement, by their terms, survive the termination of this Agreement.
