OUR TERMS OF SERVICE
This is a legal agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and Imperative Group, Inc. Whenever you use the Imperative website (the “Website”) or the Imperative services (the ”Services“), these terms of service (the “Terms”) apply to you. If you don‘t agree with any of these Terms, please don’t use our Website or Services.
PERSONAL USE ONLY
Our Website and Services are only for your personal use.

We may change this in the future but in the meantime don’t quibble – we all know personal use when we see it.
Your assessment results and feedback are subject to the limitations of psychological science. Your assessment may use procedures that are not evident to you. Your feedback may differ from your own perceptions of yourself. Do not use our Website or Services (a) if psychological feedback may cause you emotional distress or (b) for anything other than your personal use.
You need a user account to access all of our Services. You are responsible for everything done through your account so please don‘t share your login information with anyone you don’t want to be accountable for. If you lose control of your password or you think someone else is using your account, please tell us right away.

Infringe any third party rights, including rights of publicity or privacy, and intellectual property rights.

Except for rights expressly granted in these Terms, nothing in these Terms grants you any right, title or license to anything that is ours.
INVITING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
We encourage you to refer friends and family members to our Services by sending us the name and email address of your friend or family member. We will keep this information in our database, and send that person a one-time email containing your name and inviting them to visit our Website. This email will also include instructions on how to remove their information from our database. You agree that you will not abuse this feature by entering names and addresses of those who would not be interested in our Services.
INDEMNITY, DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITS ON LIABILITY
You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Imperative, its affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, licensors, licensees, agents, and representatives (the “Covered Entities”) against all liability, claims, costs, damages, settlements, and expenses (including interest, penalties, attorney fees and expert witness fees) (“Liabilities”) incurred by any Covered Entity in any way arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your use of our site and/or services, your content and/or your use of any content. Imperative reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with our defense of such claim.
THE COVERED ENTITIES MAKE NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE COVERED ENTITIES DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION AS TO THE POTENTIAL REVENUES OR OTHER BENEFITS YOU MAY REALIZE BY USING THE SERVICES.

OTHER THINGS OUR LAWYERS WANT US TO TELL YOU
These Terms incorporate any policies we post on the site.
We reserve the right to change these Terms and our policies at any time. We’ll post any change on the site and if you continue to use the Website or our Services, you will have necessarily accepted the new Terms and/or policies.
Imperative will be entitled to recover any legal fees and other costs associated with enforcing these Terms.
We can communicate with you via email, text, posting on the site and/or our third party social networking accounts. If you need to give us notice for any reason (other than legal process), you will do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails to other addresses will not satisfy any notice requirement.
You are responsible for being informed about and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to your use of the site and services.
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and Imperative and they replace any other agreement between us related to our site, our policies and/or our services. Aside from our right to make changes described in this Agreement, any amendments to these Terms must be in a writing signed by both parties.
You cannot assign these Terms without our written agreement. We can assign the Agreement to any entity that agrees to be bound by the terms of these Terms.
The Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California, excluding choice of laws principles.
The exclusive venue for any litigation arising from or related to these Terms, our site or our services shall be the courts of Los Angeles County, California, except for any optional arbitration as described next. Excluding claims for equitable relief, if the total amount in dispute is less than $10,000, either party may elect to resolve the claim through binding arbitration by initiating arbitration through an established provider that is agreed by the parties. The arbitration must be conducted under the following rules: (a) at the choice of the party seeking relief, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online, or solely on written submissions; (b) no party or witness will make any personal appearance unless the parties agree otherwise; and (c) the winning party may have the arbitrator‘s award entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any claims (in court or in arbitration) must be brought in the initiating party’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any class action or other similar proceeding.
If any provision of these Terms is unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not be affected. No waiver will be effective unless it is in an explicit writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
