Greenlight for Classroomsᵀᴹ
Last Updated: April 24, 2023
Thank you for your interest in Greenlight for Classrooms, a web-based financial literacy library and educational tool offered by Greenlight® Financial Technology, Inc. (“Greenlight”, “we,” “our” or “us”), which is aligned with the K-12 National Standards for Personal Financial Education (the “National Standards”). The National Standards were originally developed in 2021 by the Council for Economic Education in partnership with the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. As described in the introduction to the National Standards, the stated purpose of the National Standards is to identify the financial “knowledge, skills, and decision-making abilities” that kids and teens should learn, and then “provide a framework for a complete personal finance curriculum that progresses through elementary, middle, and high school to prepare students for their lives as smart consumers.”

E-Communications sent via email will be delivered to the email address registered to your GL4C Account. If an E-Communication is sent via email and is returned as undelivered, we may use any other email address that we have for you, or deliver the E-Communication to you via the Application (if we used the Application to deliver GL4C Content) . You must notify us of any change in your email address or mobile device number by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Links to Third Party Sites.
The GL4C Content may provide, or third parties may provide, links to other Internet websites or resources. Because Greenlight has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Greenlight is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or which are available from such linked sites or resources. You further acknowledge and agree that Greenlight shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource.
Disputes with Third Parties.
We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality, or any other aspect of your GL4C Account, or any GL4C Content, provided by third parties. You must resolve all issues and disputes related to such GL4C Account and GL4C Content with the applicable third party.
Dispute Resolution; Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your GL4C Account or use of the GL4C Content will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than court.
Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, counts, claim, or cause of action) between you and Greenlight or Greenlight's employees, agents, successors, or assigns, shall exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration, except that you or Greenlight may take claims to small claims court if the dispute qualifies for hearing by such court. In addition, each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, and expressly includes claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 et seq., or any other statute, regulation, or legal or equitable theory. You and Greenlight hereby agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq. (“FAA”) applies to this agreement to arbitrate, and governs all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration. Unless you and we agree otherwise in writing, arbitration shall be administered by the JAMS International Arbitration Rules in effect at the time of filing of the arbitration (the “JAMS Rules”). However, just as a court would, the arbitrator or arbitrators must honor the terms and limitations in these GL4C Terms and in the Greenlight Terms of Service which are incorporated by reference, and can award damages and relief (including any attorneys’ fees) authorized by law and/or the JAMS Rules. The arbitration decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the FAA, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND GREENLIGHT ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, INCLUDING RIGHTS TO RECEIVE A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF THE PROCEDURES OR RULES OF JAMS WOULD ALLOW IT. RATHER, YOU AND GREENIGHT ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL, BILATERAL BASIS. FURTHER, AND UNLESS YOU AND GREENLIGHT AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIMS WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. Arbitration under this agreement shall be held in Atlanta, Georgia, or any other location we mutually agree to, subject to Georgia law. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
This agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
Opt-Out of Agreement to Arbitrate:
You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing Greenlight at email@example.com and providing the requested information as follows: (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) your phone number, (4) the URL containing the Arbitration and Class Action Waiver provision for the GL4C Terms, and (5) clear statement that you wish to opt out of this arbitration provision. This opt-out notice must be emailed no later than 30 days after the date you first accept these GL4C Terms.
These GL4C Terms and any GL4C Content provided hereunder will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to any laws that would direct the choice of another state’s laws and, where applicable, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the federal laws of the United States. You consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Atlanta, Georgia with respect to all controversies arising out of or in connection with your GL4C Account and your use of the GL4C Content and these GL4C Terms that are not subject to arbitration or to any proceedings to enforce the arbitration provision or to confirm or vacate an arbitration award.
Delay of Exercising Rights.
Greenlight can waive or delay enforcement of any of its rights under these GL4C Terms without losing them.
These GL4C Terms and the Greenlight Terms of Service set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and us, whether written or oral, with respect to the GL4C Content and supersede any prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements between you and us with respect to the GL4C Content.
If any of the terms and conditions of these GL4C Terms are invalid, or declared invalid by order of court, regulatory authority, or change in applicable law, the remaining terms and conditions of these GL4C Terms will not be affected, and these GL4C Terms will be interpreted as if the invalid terms had not been included in these GL4C Terms.

IN NO EVENT SHALL YOU BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXTRAORDINARY, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE), EVEN IF YOU HAVE ADVISED US OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS PROVISION SHALL NOT BE EFFECTIVE TO THE EXTENT OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR RECOVERY FOR ANY ALLEGED NEGLIGENCE OR MISCONDUCT BY GREENLIGHT OR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Greenlight and its officers, directors, agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, joint ventures, licensees, employees, shareholders, and any third-party service providers, from and against all damages, expenses, losses, costs, or any other claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these GL4C Terms, or your violation of any law or regulation, or the rights of any third party.
