The following are the terms of service (“Terms of Service”) that define the relationship between Invincible, Inc. (doing business as Invincible (“Company,” “Invincible,” “we,” or “us”)) and you, and govern your use of Invincible’s services.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE TERMS CONTAIN A DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION SECTION, INCLUDING A CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS AND WITH RESPECT TO DISPUTES YOU MAY HAVE WITH THE SERVICES.
We’ve done our best to write this policy in simple, clear terms. We’ve also added summaries below each section that provide short explanations of the legal language in plain English (it starts with ‘Basically...’) to aid in understanding, but it isn’t legally binding.
Last updated: September 26, 2019.
Thank you for your interest in Invincible, which owns and operates the services offered on www.invincibleapp.com (“Invincible Website”), including the Invincible platform (“Invincible Platform”), and any associated mobile applications (“Invincible Apps”) or products and services that Company may provide now or in the future (collectively, the “Service”).
These Terms of Service contain general terms that apply to you as a user of the Invincible Service ("User"), along with additional terms that may apply to you as a User registered as school staff or a parent.
If you are under the age of 18, you represent that your legal guardian has reviewed and agreed to the Agreement. If you don’t get your parent or guardian to read and agree to the Agreement, you don’t have permission to use the Service.
If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity (including if you are School Personnel entering on behalf of your school), you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to these terms and conditions, in which case the terms “you”, “your” or “User” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these terms and conditions, you must not accept this Agreement and may not use the Service.

We may provide experimental features for you to try. These experimental features are not guaranteed to work the first time or any time. These features may abruptly and unexpectedly cease functioning, or disappear altogether. Other features of Invincible are not regularly tested for compatibility with experimental features. To enable an experimental feature, turn the switch on within a teacher account’s Settings. Experimental features will be added and old ones removed, possibly (probably) without notice.
Invincible sometimes offers experimental features which haven't been tested. These may be removed without notice.
We provide our Service using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.

Content from other Users and third parties, including, information about third-party products and services, is made available to you through the Service ("Third-Party Content"). Additionally, the Service may contain links to third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by Company, and includes features that allow you to interact and communicate with third parties (“Third-Party Websites”). The inclusion of Third-Party Content and links to Third-Party Websites on the Service does not imply our affiliation or endorsement of such Third-Party Content or Third-Party Websites. Because we do not control Third-Party Content or Third-Party Websites, you agree that we are not responsible for any such Third-Party Content or Third-Party Websites, including the accuracy, integrity, quality, legality, usefulness, safety or intellectual property rights of or relating to such Third-Party Content or Third-Party Websites (including privacy policies or opinions expressed on the Third-Party Websites), it is the sole responsibility of the person from which such Third-Party Content or Third-Party Websites originated, and Invincible has no obligation to monitor such Third-Party Content or Third-Party Websites.

User Disputes. Invincible is not responsible for the actions, content, information or data of other third parties, including other Users. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Services, and any other parties with whom you interact through the Service.

If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, successors, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes, including damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use , privacy or data. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." And, if you are not a California resident, you waive any applicable state statutes of a similar effect.
There are many people who use Invincible. Although we expect every user to follow our guidelines, we are not responsible for their actions. We’ll enforce our acceptable use and other guidelines, but we won’t get involved in, nor are we responsible for any disputes you may have with other users of Invincible.
This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Service unless your account is terminated as provided in this Agreement (“Term”). Certain Users (e.g., parents and School Personnel) may terminate their use of the Service or your account at any time by contacting us at email@example.com provided, however, that an Institution may require satisfaction of certain requirements before School Personnel can terminate their account. As a parent, if you created your child’s account (or your child is not using the Service at school), you can also terminate your child’s account the same way, although we will need to verify your identity (such as requiring that you send the request to us from the same email address you used to provide your consent to activate the student account originally).
You acknowledge that, if you knowingly, intentionally or negligently violate this Agreement, Invincible may suspend your license to the Services, in whole or in part, until the violation has stopped or terminate your license and use of the Services. In the event that you fail to correct the violation after reasonable notice from Invincible, Invincible may terminate your license and use of the Services and this Agreement. You agree and if such termination or suspension occurs, Invincible shall bear no responsibility or liability for any damages or claims resulting from or in connection with such actions, including the loss of information associated with your account.
The following does not apply in the unforeseen circumstances in which Invincible ceases operations or files for bankruptcy at which point Invincible may terminate or suspend all User accounts and licenses with or without notice to you, and with no liability to you. We believe that you (or your school as applicable) own your data and preserving access to such data is important. If we discontinue the Service (such as if we went out of business), where reasonably possible, we will give you advance notice and a chance to get information out of the Service. Click here for more information.
There is no obligation to use our Service, and you can stop using your account, or delete it completely, at any time. We can do that for you, too. Additionally, we might suspend or terminate your account if you violate our rules or the law.
a) Generally: In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Company in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Company agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with these Terms of Service shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms of Service, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms of Service. You understand and agree that, by entering into these Terms of Service, you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
b) Exceptions: Notwithstanding subsection (a), we both agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
c) Arbitration: Any arbitration between you and Company will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms of Service, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Company.
d) Notice; Process: A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). Company's address for Notice is: Class Twist, Inc., 735 Tehama St, San Francisco, CA 94103, United States of America. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but If we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Company shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any; provided that if our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Company shall pay you the greater of (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, and (ii) the greatest amount offered by Company in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award.
e) Fees: In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms of Service, Company will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in San Francisco, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand 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 fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Company for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
f) No Class Actions: you and company agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
g) Enforceability: if only Subsection F of this Section or the entirety of this Section is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described elsewhere in this Section shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms of Service.
It is our goal to quickly and efficiently resolve disputes that may arise. For that reason, we require disputes to be submitted to arbitration. If you bring a dispute in arbitration that is $10,000 or less, Invincible will pay all the filing fees and make arrangements for non-appearance based proceedings (if you prefer). Additionally, we each waive rights to bring class actions.
The failure of either party to exercise, in any respect, any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Company shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Company's reasonable control. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with Company's prior written consent. Company may transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without restriction. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. To the extent any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such claim shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in San Francisco, California, and for all purposes of this Agreement, you and Company consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Unless and solely to the extent that you or your Institution have a separate written agreement with Company that governs your use of the Service (in which case such agreement will control), we both agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that the Agreement may not be modified, except as otherwise provided herein. This Agreement and any subsequent versions of this Agreement posted to the Website will be deemed a writing signed by both parties.
