9. Governing Law
Any claim relating to or arising under or in connection with PowerNotes LLC’s web site shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
In the event that PowerNotes LLC has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with User after attempting to do so informally, both User and PowerNotes LLC agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any PowerNotes LLC claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms and Conditions of Use, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the city of Chicago, Illinois, under the commercial rules then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing PowerNotes LLC from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of PowerNotes LLC’s proprietary interests. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. USER AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, USER AND POWERNOTES LLC ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
11. Copyright Policy
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.
If User believes in good faith that materials on the PowerNotes LLC site infringe User’s copyright, User (or User’s agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked.
The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow PowerNotes LLC to locate the material on the site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Notices and counter-notices should be sent to:
820 West Jackson Boulevard
Chicago, IL 60607
PowerNotes LLC suggests that you consult a legal advisor before submitting such a notice.
12. Waiver, Severability & Assignment
PowerNotes LLC’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, then the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Use will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. User may not assign any of User’s rights under these Terms and Conditions of Use, and any such attempt will be void. PowerNotes LLC may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
13. Third-Party AI Providers
PowerNotes uses third-party products for some of its artificial intelligence feature set. If you or your institution use these features, you agree to the additional terms and conditions set forth by the appropriate third-parties, including:
No refunds will be offered on canceled subscriptions. Paid subscriptions are non-refundable, and no prorated refunds or credits will be offered for partially used subscriptions. We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion, or as required by applicable law. If we issue a refund or credit in one instance, we are under no obligation to issue the same refund or credit in the future.
Canceling your Premium subscription
When you cancel your Premium subscription, your subscription won’t change until your current billing cycle ends. Once your subscription runs out, your subscription will be canceled, and your account will automatically revert to a Free account. None of your data will be lost, and you will maintain access to all of your projects on a limited basis.
