Such removal does not entitle the author to reimbursement of APC. Dave4Math is not liable for the acts or statements of others.
- Purchase Conditions.
When purchasing an item, you agree to purchase the item from Dave4Math at the listed purchase price. If a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or for any other reason, we have the right to refuse or cancel any order (to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law), whether or not the order has been confirmed and your original method of payment charged. If the original method of payment has been charged, we will issue a refund back to the original method of payment. Refunds and cancellations are only offered on a case-by-case basis. Dave4Math at its sole discretion has the right not to accept any order placed through the website without assigning any reason thereof. Any contract to provide any service by Dave4Math is not complete until full money towards the service is received from the user and accepted by Dave4Math.
Purchases on the Site or through the Services may be subject to taxes in many states. Tax rates are different in each state. You are responsible for paying all such taxes, fees, duties, and charges.
You agree that we have the right to collect and analyze data and other information relating to the provision, use and performance of various aspects of the Site and Services, and related systems (for example, anonymous and aggregated information concerning user behavior and use of the Services), and we will be free (during and after the term hereof) to (i) use such information and data to improve and enhance the Site Services and for other development, diagnostic and corrective purposes in connection with the Site and Services and other Company offerings, and (ii) disclose such data solely in aggregate or other de-identified form in connection with its business.
We may need your permission to do things you ask us to do with your stuff, for example, hosting your ﬁles, or sharing them at your direction. This includes product features visible to you, for example, image thumbnails or project previews. It also includes design choices we make to technically administer our Services, for example, how we redundantly backup data to keep it safe. You give us the permissions we need to do those things solely to provide the Services. This permission also extends to our affiliates and trusted third parties we work with to provide the Services, for example Amazon Web Services, which provides our main storage space (again, only to provide the Services).
- Paid Services.
We may require Services to be paid for on a recurring basis (“Subscription Services”) or on an as-used basis (“A La Carte Services” and, together with the Subscription Services, “Paid Services”). We have the right to change, delete, discontinue or impose conditions on Paid Services or any feature or aspect of a Paid Service. Subscription Services may subject you to recurring fees and/or terms. By signing up for a Subscription Service, including after any free trial period, you agree to pay us the subscription fee and any applicable taxes as set forth in your Account settings or as otherwise agreed in writing (“Subscription Fee”). A La Carte Services may subject you to fees charged per usage and/or terms. By using an A La Carte Service, you agree to pay the fees and any taxes incurred at the time of usage (“A La Carte Fees” and, together with Subscription Fees, the “Paid Service Fees”).
Paid Service Fees may be paid by credit card, debit card, or other payment forms we may permit. If you link a debit or credit card to your Account, you authorize us to collect Paid Service Fees by debit from your linked debit card or charge to your linked credit card. Regardless of payment device, we reserve the right to collect Paid Service Fees by deduction from your transaction proceeds, the Balance (as deﬁned in the Payment Terms) in your Account or your linked bank account. You may cancel a Subscription Service at any time from your Account settings. If you cancel a Subscription Service, you will continue to have access to that Subscription Service through the end of your then current billing period, but you will not be entitled to a refund or credit for any Subscription Fee already due or paid. We reserve the right to change our Subscription Fee upon thirty (30) days’ advance notice. Your continued use of Subscription Services after notice of a change to our Subscription Fee will constitute your agreement to such changes.
When you purchase a Subscription or make any other paid feature related purchase via the Services (each, a “Transaction”), you expressly authorize us (or our third party payment processor, e.g. Stripe) to charge you for such Transaction. We may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address and additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information, “Payment Information”). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. When you initiate a Transaction, you authorize us to store and continue billing you using your Payment Information and to provide your Payment Information to our third party payment processors as needed to complete your Transactions. We may also periodically authorize your payment method in anticipation of applicable fees or related charges. Further, as part of our order processing procedures, we may screen orders for fraud or other undesirable activity. If we feel an order could be fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal, we reserve the right to refuse to process that order. Your Subscription continues until cancelled by you or we terminate your access to or use of the Services or the Subscription in accordance with these Terms.
Free Trials. We may offer Subscriptions on a free trial basis (“Free Trial”) for a specified period of time. If we offer you a Free Trial, the specific terms of your Free Trial will be provided at signup and/or in the promotional materials describing the Free Trial and your use of the Free Trial is subject to your compliance with such specific terms. Free Trials may not be combined with any other offer. Except as may otherwise be provided in the specific terms for the Free Trial offer, Free Trials are only available to users who have not previously subscribed to the service in connection with which the Free Trial is being offered. When you agree to a Free Trial, you are also agreeing to sign up for a Subscription as described above and, consequently, unless you cancel your Subscription prior to the end of your Free Trial, we (or our third party payment processor) will begin charging your payment method on a recurring basis for the Subscription Fee (plus any applicable taxes) until you cancel your Subscription. Instructions for cancelling your Subscription are stated below in the “Cancelling Subscriptions” section. We reserve the right to modify or terminate Free Trials at any time, without notice and in our sole discretion.
Cancelling Subscriptions. You may cancel your Subscription at any time. PLEASE NOTE, HOWEVER, THAT, EXCEPT FOR THE THIRTY (30) DAY PERIOD FOLLOWING THE START OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. AFTER THE FIRST THIRTY (30) DAY PERIOD FOLLOWING THE START OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY PORTION OF THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE PAID FOR THE THEN CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD AT THE TIME OF CANCELLATION.
Chargebacks. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline, chargeback or otherwise reverse the charge of any payable fees to us (“Chargeback”), we may automatically terminate your Account. If you have questions about a payment made to us, we encourage you to contact Customer Care before ﬁling a Chargeback. We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback.
payment method you provide with your Account. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our Payment Processor to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received.
- Copyright Infringement.
We respect the intellectual property rights of others. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides a complaint procedure for copyright owners who believe that website material infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that your work has been improperly copied and posted on the website, please provide us with the following information: (1) name, address, telephone number, email address and an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or of the person authorized to act on his/ her behalf; (2) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (3) a description of where on the Site the material that you claim is infringing is located; (4) a written statement that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (5) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf. These requirements must be followed to give us legally sufficient notice of infringement. Send copyright infringement complaints to the following email address:. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before ﬁling a DMCA notice with our copyright agent. There can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
Unless otherwise stated, articles published on the Site are “Open Access” and licensed by the respective authors in accordance with the license labelled on the page. Some articles published on this website may make use of copyrighted material for which the author(s) have obtained a reprint permission from the copyright holder. Usually such reprint permissions do not allow author(s) and/or Dave4Math to further license the copyrighted material. The licensing described in these terms and conditions are therefore not applicable to such kind of material enclosed within articles. It is the User’s responsibility to identify reusability of material provided on this website, for which he may take direct contact with the authors of the article.

You agree that the Services are available on an “as is” basis, without any warranty, and that you use the Services at your own risk.

We do not warrant that the Site or the Services will operate error-free or that the Site is free of computer viruses and/or other harmful materials. If your use of the Site or the Services results in the need for servicing or replacing equipment or data, we are not responsible for any such costs. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain categories of damages or implied warranties; therefore, the above limitations may not apply to you. In such jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
- Limitation of Liability.
Any liability we have to you in connection with these Terms, under any cause of action or theory, is strictly limited to 100 dollars per user, in aggregate for all violations. Without limiting the previous sentence, in no event shall we or any of our affiliates be liable to you for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages arising out of or in connection with, these Terms. The foregoing limitations apply whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if we or our affiliates have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless for any breach of security or any compromise of your Account. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential; therefore, the above limitations may not apply to you. In such jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless us, our affiliates and our and their officers, directors, partners, agents, and employees from and against any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (collectively, “Claims”), made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Site and Services in violation of these Terms, any breach of the representations and warranties you make in these Terms, or your User Content, including any royalties due to third parties as a result of your User Content. You agree to be solely responsible for defending any Claims against or suffered by us, subject to our right to participate with counsel of our own choosing.
- Electronic Signatures and Notices.
Certain activities on the Services may require you to make an electronic signature. You understand and accept that an electronic signature has same legal rights and obligations as a physical signature. If you have an Account, you agree that we may provide you any and all required notices electronically through your Account or other electronic means. You agree that we are not responsible for any delivery fees charged to you as a result of your receipt of our electronic notices.
- Governing Law.
These Terms are governed by Texas law, without giving effect to conflicts of law principles. You agree that, to the extent applicable and expressly subject to the Dispute Resolution provisions below, to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Texas in circumstances where these Terms permit litigation in court.
- Dispute Resolution.
Please read this section carefully. It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.
Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either we or you may seek arbitration, the party seeking arbitration must send the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and the requested relief. A Notice to us should be sent to Dave4Math. After the Notice is received, you and we may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If we do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conﬂict with the Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Arbitration Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at http://www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US 10,000.00) shall be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US 10,000.00 dollars) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in Texas, unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration.
The arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
If either you or we pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for ﬁling a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
Authority of Arbitrator.
If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of the parties involved, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and these Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
Waiver of Jury Trial.
THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under these terms. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and us in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND WE WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions.
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS SECTION 17 MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. You agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Section 16, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
If any part or parts of this Section 17 are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive.
Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Section 17 may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Section 17.
Survival of Agreement.
This Section 17 will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
Small Claims Court.

This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the Dave4Math Affiliate Program. In this agreement, the term “Affiliate” refers to you (the applicant).
The Dave4Math Affiliate program administered in part through a 3rd party affiliate management company called AffiliateWP (www.afﬁliatewp.com).
We may modify any of the terms and conditions within this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. These modiﬁcations may include, but not limited to changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Affiliate Program rules. If any of the modiﬁcations are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change.
To enroll in the Affiliate program, you must submit an Affiliate application and be approved. Applications are processed once a week and applicants will be notified via email of their acceptance status as soon as possible after their information is reviewed.
You will be issued a special URL once you become an approved member of the Dave4Math Affiliate Program which will be unique to you and you only, and will allow you to be paid for Affiliate referrals.
Affiliates will receive 100% of a sold support plan as a commission from orders placed through properly coded Affiliate links (unless noted otherwise for a particular product). Commissions may change at the discretion of the product publisher, Dave4Math commissions may increase during limited time special promotions, but they will return thereafter to the regular commission rate.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered through the secure order system. Word of mouth referrals will not result in an Affiliate commission being generated. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the Affiliate.
Dave4Math pays afﬁliates via a bank account, provided to us when a member joins. If the payment email changes, it is the responsibility of the afﬁliate to notify the Dave4Math Afﬁliate Program to ensure proper commission payments. We will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses.
Dave4Math will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer via Affiliate links. Affiliate are not authorized to collect payments or sell any Dave4Math products from other websites as a “reseller” and no “resale” rights are granted in ANY way. All Affiliates understand and acknowledge that no physical products will be shipped.
Customers who purchase products and services through the Dave4Math Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of Dave4Math. Accordingly, all rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders and service will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. Prices and availability of our products and services may vary from time to time. Dave4Math policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.

Messages posted to Usenet, forums, Twitter, Facebook and message boards that are off-topic (unrelated to the topic of discussion), cross-posted to unrelated newsgroups, posted in excessive volume, or posted against forum/message board rules. Be conscious of forum rules! If a forum owner or moderator complains that an afﬁliate has spammed, the afﬁliate account may be permanently terminated after investigation.
Content posted on free blog websites for the sole purpose of keyword spamming, or comments posted to legitimate blogs that violate the comment policy of the blog owner.
Solicitations posted to chat rooms, or to groups or individuals via Internet Relay Chat or “Instant Messaging” system;

Termination results in the immediate closure of the member and afﬁliate account, the loss of all referrals, and the forfeiture of any unpaid money on account. At Dave4Math discretion, termination may not only result in being banned from the afﬁliate program, but also being banned from ANY other internal afﬁliate programs.
