It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or you use the Services.

If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then, except as otherwise provided in Section 18(f) “Effect of Changes on Arbitration,” you may not use the Services anymore.

Description of Services. Oji equips you to develop your emotional intelligence via a digital learning experience that we call a “Life Lab”. We do this by providing you a mix of self-learning and facilitated-learning tools and features of our Services (each, a “Tool”) including without limitation, allowing you to work independently on our Life Lab lessons via our App, facilitating emotional learning discussions (including one on one chat and video sessions) with our trained Coaches, and providing text-based discussions with Coaches on emotional intelligence topics. All information that you provide or submit to the Services, whether as part of your self-learning via the App, or as part of the individual sessions or text chats with the Coaches is collectively referred to as “Confidential Private Information”. Any information that you choose to provide in a facilitated group session is referred to as “Group Private Information”. We also prepare statistical and aggregate reports tracking the overall progress of the Employees within an organization for their Companies (“Aggregate Reports”). All Aggregate Reports will be a compilation of the aggregate data of many participants like yourself, will always be anonymous, and will never be able to identify you or any other participant. For the purposes of these Terms, “Coach” means an Oji employee or consultant who is appropriately trained by Oji to provide consultation to its users in the area of emotional learning, on the topics that the Services explore, and serves as an advisor, trainer, and facilitator in conversations with the users, whether during one-on-one or group sessions.
Confidentiality of Your (Confidential and Group) Private Information. Creating a safe environment within our Services where you feel comfortable expressing yourself is of paramount importance to us. With that in mind, we treat all your Confidential Private Information as strictly confidential and do not disclose it to anyone except for sharing with our Coaches, internal staff, and service providers who are also bound by terms of confidentiality, for the sole purpose of providing and improving our Services. All your Confidential Private Information and Group Private Information is your information, and you alone own it. You alone will decide which of the Confidential Private Information that you input into the Services via the self-learning feature of the Services will be kept strictly private (i.e. no one except you can see it), which of such information will be shared with the Coaches, and which information will be shared with the entire community of our Services including, other users of the Services (“Life Lab Community”). You have 100% control over what Confidential Private Information you share and with whom, and we will share only those of your text, audio, video or photographic responses that you ask us to share with the Coaches, or with the Life Lab Community by clicking on the “Share” option on the Services. We will also provide Coaches with access to the recordings of the chat sessions and live group sessions so that they have proper context and background before they chat or have a live session with you, for a more meaningful conversation. Needless to say, all the Group Private Information you share in a live or video group session will be disclosed to the Coach facilitating the session as well as other participants in the group session. Please note that while we strive to emphasize the importance of confidentiality to everyone participating, we do not control any of the participants, like yourself. Hence, we cannot promise any confidential treatment of whatever you share in such group sessions.

Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding.

Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules.

The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at adr.org.
If your claim is for U.S. $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 telephonic or video-conference hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds U.S. $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.
Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. We’ll pay for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and expenses if your Dispute is for less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
Class Action Waiver. YOU AND OJI 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, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 18(e) of these Terms ("Class Action Waiver"), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.
Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Oji and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Oji and you regarding the Services and Content.
