By registering for a Planist account, you state that you are at least 18 years of age, and you are responsible for ensuring that all Planist Users and Invitees are at least 13 years old. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our Terms, including creating an account on behalf of others or persons under the age of 18.
Children under the age of 13 shall only use the Services under an account created by and under their parent/guardian or school/educator and are specifically prohibited from the use of the Services otherwise.

To the extent that Planist has access to “education records,” as defined by the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Acts of 1974 and its implementing regulations (“FERPA”), it is deemed and shall function as a “school official” with “legitimate educational interests” when fulfilling its responsibilities under this Agreement, and both parties agree that you have “direct control” over the use of “education records” as these terms are defined under FERPA. Planist agrees to comply with its obligations under FERPA, including but not limited to the limitations on re-disclosure of personally identifiable information from education records set forth in FERPA and with the terms set forth below.
To use the Website, you need to set up a Planist account. You may establish either a free account (“Free Account”) or a paid account (“Paid Account”). You are authorized by Planist to set up one Free Account only. Planist reserves the right to terminate any additional Free Accounts set up by you and any Free Accounts that have been inactive for over 6 months.
When you create an account, we collect registration-related information, which includes your email address and your name. Once you submit the required registration information, we alone will determine whether or not to approve your proposed account. If approved, you will be sent an email detailing how to complete your registration. For so long as you use the account, you agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information that can be accomplished by logging into your account and making relevant changes directly. You are responsible for complying with these Terms when you access this Website, whether directly or through any account that you may set up through or on this Website.

Should you believe your password or security for this Website has been breached in any way, you must immediately notify us at [email protected].
Your account belongs to you. However, Planist controls the URL(s) assigned to your account and may change or deactivate the URL(s) without prior notice. If your account is paid for by another party for you to use (for example, paid and managed by your employer), the party paying for your account has the right to control it, manage it, and get reports on your use of the Paid Account. The party paying for your account does not have rights nor access to your separate, personal account(s) that are not paid for nor managed by that party.
SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD AND SUBSCRIPTION FEES
You agree to pay all applicable fees related to your use of this Website which are described fully on our pricing page. By providing a payment method, you expressly authorize us to charge the applicable fees on said payment method as well as taxes and other charges incurred thereto at regular intervals, all of which depend on your particular subscription and utilized services.
The subscription period for Paid Accounts can be month-to-month, yearly, or another duration described more fully on our pricing page.
Paid Accounts are subject to fees based upon the account type you’ve selected. For renewals, Planist will automatically charge your payment method in the amount of the then-current fee for your type of account, plus applicable taxes. All payments are non-refundable. To the extent that payment mechanisms are provided through third parties, you agree that Planist will have no liability to you arising out of the acts or omissions of such third parties. If applicable, you agree to maintain current billing information.
BY CREATING A PAID ACCOUNT, YOU CONSENT TO ALLOW PLANIST TO CHARGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD, EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH ITS PAYMENT PROCESSORS, FOR THE AMOUNTS DUE FOR YOUR INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD AND FOR ADDITIONAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS UNTIL YOUR ACCOUNT IS CANCELED OR TERMINATED. PLEASE PRINT OUT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR YOUR RECORDS.
Paid Accounts will automatically renew for the same subscription period unless you cancel the account by the end of the then-current subscription period. You can cancel your account at any time by contacting customer service at [email protected]. Cancellation will be effective immediately. Please note that after you cancel your account, you may not be able to use or access the Platform and you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees that you’ve paid.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our Website may contain links to third party websites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you. By linking to these websites, we do not create or have an affiliation with or sponsor such third party websites. The inclusion of links within our Website does not constitute any endorsement, guarantee, warranty, or recommendation of such third party websites. Planist has no control over the legal documents and privacy practices of third party websites, and by using them, you may be giving those third parties permission to use or control your information in ways Planist would not. As such, you access any third-party websites at your own risk.
Certain areas of this Website are public-facing and allow you to interact with others (e.g., the Planist blog and the idea portal) (together, “Forums”). These Forums may permit you to submit feedback, information, data, text, software, messages, or other materials (each, a “Submission”). We love hearing from our Users and Invitees! It’s incredibly helpful and helps us to make a better Planist for all. If you choose to provide a Submission, either directly to us or via a Forum, you agree that we can use them without any restrictions or compensation to you.
Any information that you post in a Forum might be read, collected, and used by others who access it. To request removal of your information from a Forum, contact [email protected]. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your information, in which case we will let you know that, and why.
You agree that you are solely responsible for all of your Submissions and that any such Submissions are considered both non-confidential and non-proprietary. If you use Forums, you also understand that anyone could see your Submissions. Planist does not endorse, nor are we required to pre-screen your Submissions (although we might), and, like elsewhere on the Internet, Submissions from other people could offend you. Further, we do not guarantee that you will be able to edit or delete any Submission you have submitted.
By submitting any Submission, you are promising us that you own all rights in your Submission, your Submission does not infringe on the rights of others, your Submission does not violate any laws or regulations, and your Submission is not in poor taste.
You grant to us an irrevocable royalty-free license to copy, modify, publish and display your Submission, and to make, use (and permit others to use) your Submission for any purpose (including, without limitation, to use your Submission in our Website).
We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Forum and can remove information or content at our sole discretion, with or without notice.

THE WEBSITE AND ALL CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE IS WITH YOU. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND (EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY) WHICH INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, ACCURACY OF DATA, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
THIS MEANS THAT WE DO NOT PROMISE YOU THAT THE WEBSITE IS FREE OF PROBLEMS. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we make no warranty that the Website will meet your requirements or will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free, or that defects will be corrected. We make no warranty as to the results that may be obtained or as to the accuracy or reliability of any information obtained through the Website.

We disclaim all equitable indemnities.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
PLANIST WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR OTHERS FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE OR YOUR DISPLAYING, COPYING, OR DOWNLOADING ANY MATERIALS TO OR FROM THE WEBSITE. IN NO EVENT WILL PLANIST BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, EXTRAORDINARY, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF DATA, REVENUE, PROFITS, OPPORTUNITIES, REPUTATION, USE, OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE) HOWEVER ARISING, EVEN IF WE KNOW THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
PLANIST’S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR THE WEBSITE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION (WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES DUE TO NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, MISREPRESENTATION, OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON), WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF (I) THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO PLANIST IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY OR (II) US $100.00.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS PART OF THE BASIS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND PLANIST AND SHALL APPLY TO ALL CLAIMS OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF PLANIST HAS BEEN TOLD OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF THESE REMEDIES FAIL THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
LOCAL LAWS; EXPORT CONTROL
We control and operate the Website from our headquarters in the United States of America and the entirety of the Website may not be appropriate or available for use in other locations. If you use the Website outside the United States of America, you are solely responsible for following applicable local laws.
Planist and you shall comply with all relevant United States export control laws and regulations. Without limiting the foregoing: (a) you acknowledge that the Website may be subject to the United States Export Administration Regulations; (b) you affirm that you are not, and you will not (i) permit Planist Users or Invitees to access or use the Website in a United States embargoed country; (ii) or permit Planist Users or Invitees on the U.S. Commerce Department’s Denied Persons, Entity, or Unverified Lists or (iii) permit Planist Users or Invitees on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Consolidated Sanctions list; and (c) you are responsible for complying with any local laws and regulations which may impact your right to import, export, access, or use the Website.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Please Read This Provision Carefully. It Affects Your Legal Rights.
This provision facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any dispute that may arise between you and us. Effectively, then, “dispute” is given the broadest meaning enforceable by law and includes any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as our licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
This provision provides that all disputes between you and us will be resolved by binding arbitration because acceptance of these Terms constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. We prefer this because we believe arbitration is less drama-filled than litigation. To be clear, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees). YOU AND PLANIST AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution
For all disputes, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute which is first done by emailing us at [email protected] the following information: (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If we do not resolve the dispute within 45 days after receiving your notification, then you may pursue your dispute in arbitration.
If this provision applies and the dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or we may initiate arbitration proceedings. JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be commenced as an individual arbitration, and will in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. This provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration. Because this Website and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit. You or we may initiate arbitration in either Georgia or the federal judicial district where you are located.
Class Action Waiver
Except as otherwise provided in this provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and Planist specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.
You understand and agree that by accepting this provision in these Terms, you and we are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. If any clause within this provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this provision whose remainder will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire provision will be unenforceable and the dispute will be decided by a court. This provision will survive the termination of your account with us or our affiliates and your discontinued use of this Website. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if we make any change to this provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require us to adhere to the language in this provision if a dispute between us arises.
We think direct communication resolves most issues – if we feel that you are not complying with these Terms, we will likely tell you. We may even provide you with recommended necessary corrective action(s) if possible. However, certain violations of these Terms, as determined by us, may require immediate termination of your access to this Website without prior notice to you.
Neither You or Planist will be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under these Terms (except for a failure to pay fees) if the delay or failure is due to events which are beyond reasonable control, such as a strike, blockade, war, act of terrorism, riot, natural disaster, for failure, or diminishment of power or telecommunications or data networks or services.
Unless you have specifically notified Planist to the contrary in writing (including via email to [email protected]), Planist may disclose your company as a customer of Planist (if you use Planist for business purposes and/or use a business email address as your Planist User email address) and may use your company’s name and logo on the Website and in Planist’s promotional content. Planist will request your prior written consent for any other uses.
We may amend our Terms at any time by publishing revised Terms on our Website and/or by sending an email to the address you gave us. These Terms are current as of the Effective Date set forth above. If any changes are made to these Terms, we’ll post them on this page, so please be sure to check back periodically. If you continue to use Planist after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised Terms. Therefore, it is important for you to periodically review our Terms to make sure you still agree to them. If you object to any such modifications, your sole recourse will be to cease using this Website. Planist reserves the right to change any and all features of our Website, at any time, without notice.
If you have any questions about these Terms or otherwise need to contact us for any reason, you can reach us at [email protected].
