While we do our best to provide relevant, understandable and accurate information to our students, RLM makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the information, contents, materials, documents, programs, products, books, or services included in or through the Program.  RLM also makes no warranties regarding the performance of any technological aspects of the program. 

RLM disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose to the fullest extent permissible under the law.  Check with a matrimonial lawyer in your jurisdiction for the most up-to-date legal information and/or legal advice for your situation.

 

12. Limitation of Liability

If you are dissatisfied with the Program or any portion of it, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Program.

​You hereby expressly waive any and all claims you may have, now or in the future, arising out of or relating to the Program.  You hereby absolve RLM of any and all liability or loss that you or any person or entity associated with you may suffer or incur as a result of your use of the Program and/or any information and resources contained in the Program. You agree that RLM shall not be liable to you for any type of damages, including direct, indirect, special, incidental, equitable, or consequential loss or damages for use of the Program.

The information, software, products, and service included or available through the Program may include inaccuracies or typographical errors. Changes are periodically added to the information in the Program. RLM and/or its suppliers may make improvements and/or changes in the Program at any time. 

RLM and/or its suppliers make no representations about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, and accuracy of the information, software, products, services, and related graphics contained in the Program for any purpose. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, all such information, software, products, services, and related graphics are provided “as is” without warranty or condition of any kind. RLM and/or its suppliers hereby disclaim all warranties and conditions with regard to this information, software, products, services, and related graphics, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. 

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall RLM and/or its suppliers be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential damages or any damages whatsoever including, without limitation, damages for loss of use, data, or profits arising out of or in any way connected with the use or performance of the Program, with the delay or inability to use the Program or related service, the provision of or failure to provide services, or for any information, software, products, services, and related graphics obtained through the Program, or otherwise arising out of the use of the Program, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, even if RLM or any of its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages. Because some States or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitations may not apply to You. 

 

13. Dispute Resolution

Please bring any disputes, complaints or claims to RLM’s attention by emailing us at [email protected].   We will attempt to resolve any disputes via direct communication.  If You and RLM cannot come to agreement, You agree to attend at least one mediation session with a professional, mutually agreed-upon mediator prior to seeking redress in arbitration or in court.

If any such dispute is not resolved via direct negotiation or mediation, you agree to present such claim only through binding arbitration to occur in New York City, New York and shall be governed by New York State law.

You further agree to and do hereby waive any right to class arbitration and agree, instead, to conduct an arbitration related solely to any individual claims you and/or any entity related to you asserts against RLM. To the fullest extent permissible by law, you further agree that you shall be responsible for all costs associated with initiating the arbitration and for the administration of the arbitration.

You hereby expressly waive any and all claims you may have, now or in the future, arising out of or relating to the Program. To the extent that you attempt to assert any such claim, you agree that any claims will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, and may be presented only in the state or federal courts that are in New York City, New York.

 

14. Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless RLM, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and third parties for any losses, costs, liabilities, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of your use of or inability to use the Program and related services, any user postings made by you, your violation of any terms of this Agreement or your violation of any rights of a third party, or your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. RLM reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with RLM in asserting any available defenses.

 

15. Termination And Access Restriction

RLM reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate Your access to the Program and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, if You become disruptive to RLM or other Program participants, if You fail to follow the Program guidelines, or if You otherwise violate this Agreement. You shall not be entitled to a refund of any portion of the fees and shall not be excused from any remaining payments under a payment plan in the event of such termination.

 

16. Entire Agreement

This Agreement, along with RLM’s Privacy Policy, and Disclaimer (see below), constitutes the entire agreement between You and RLM with respect to the Program, and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written, between You and RLM with respect to the Program. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall 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. 

 

17. Severability 

If any term or provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

18. Waiver

No waiver by any Party of any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing (email sufficing), and (electronically) signed by the Party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, any right arising from this Agreement shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right preclude the exercise of any other right created by this Agreement.  

 

19. Force Majeure

RLM shall not be liable or responsible to You, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond the reasonable control of RLM including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion, or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot, or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lock-outs, strikes or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to either party's workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.
