Effective Date: December 8, 2023
Welcome to Clever! We’re (“we”, “us”, or “Clever”) delighted to have you on our website and maybe even using our service (the “Services”). Please continue reading to learn about the terms by which you may use our web and/or mobile services (collectively, the “Services”).
This next sentences are surrounded by stars because they are important: ***Please read these terms carefully to ensure that you understand each provision. If you are a Developer or a Parent, these terms contain a mandatory individual arbitration agreement in Section 3(viii) (the “Arbitration Agreement”) and class action/jury waiver provision in Section 3(ix) (the “Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver”) that apply to you. The Arbitration Agreement and Class Action/Jury Trail Waiver require, with only specified exceptions in Sections 3(viii) and 3(ix) or unless you opt out pursuant to the instructions in Section 3(viii), the exclusive use of final and binding arbitration on an individual basis only to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class, collective, private attorney general or representative actions or proceedings. ***
SECTION 1. WHAT ARE CLEVER’S SERVICES AND WHO CAN USE THEM?
What do we do? We provide Schools both data integration and single sign-on functionality, making it easier for Schools to choose, deploy, and control software, applications or tools made available by Developers that are used by their teachers and students, as well as to use certain Clever software applications we may make available to access the Services via a website or mobile device (our “App”). We also operate an online application marketplace where Developers can offer to sell subscriptions to their own software applications for direct distribution to Schools (the “Clever App Store”).
You’re allowed to use the Services only if you can form a binding contract with Clever, and only in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. If you’ve been removed from the Services previously, you’re not allowed to use them again.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Clever grants to you permission to access and use the Services. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in the Services and the Clever Content (as defined below). We may terminate this license at any time for any or no reason.
i) DETAILS ABOUT THE CLEVER SERVICES
Your Clever account gives you access to our Services, but don’t sign up on behalf of a School if you do not have the requisite authority to do so. Once you sign up, you are responsible for your account and any data associated with it.
Your Clever account gives you access to the Services and functionality we make available from time to time and at our discretion, which may include single sign-on capability for certain applications made available by Developers. We maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a Clever account on behalf of a School or a Developer, then (a) “you” includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf.
Remember: you are responsible for any activity that occurs on your account, you may never use someone else’s account without permission, and you must keep your account password secure. We recommend using multi-factor authentication and long passphrases that have not been reused with any other service with your account to avoid unauthorized use (see here for more guidance). Please let us know immediately if you think your account’s security has been compromised so we can help; we are not liable for any losses of any kind caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
ii) WHAT CONTROL DO I HAVE OVER MY USE OF THE SERVICES?
You may control your profile and how you interact with the Services by changing the settings in your settings page. By providing your email address to us you consent to our using the email address to send you Services-related notices, including any required legal notices and other messages, such as additions or changes to the Services and/or notices of product offers. You may opt out or change your preferences in your settings page. While we need your email address to send you important Services-related notices, you can always ask us to stop sending you certain marketing messages. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
iii) RESTRICTED USES
Please don’t do anything to harm our product or try to hack our Services. Specifically, by using the Services, you agree not to do any of these things: (i) copy, distribute, or disclose any part of the Services in any medium, including but not limited to by any automated or non-automated “scraping”; (ii) use any automated system, including but not limited to “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., to access the Services in a manner that sends more request messages to the Clever servers than a human can reasonably produce in the same period of time by using a conventional online web browser; (iii) transmit spam, chain letters, or other unsolicited email; (iv) attempt to interfere with, compromise the system integrity or security or decipher any transmissions to or from the servers running the Services; (v) take any action that imposes, or may impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (vi) transmit any malicious software agents through the Services; (vii) collect or harvest any third-party personally identifiable information, including account names or Student Data (as defined below), from the Services; (viii) use the Services for any commercial solicitation purposes; (ix) impersonate another person or otherwise misrepresenting your affiliation with a person or entity, conducting fraud, hiding or attempting to hide your identity; (x) interfere with the proper working of the Services; (xi) access any content on the Services through any technology or means other than those provided or authorized by the Services; or (xii) bypass the measures we use to prevent or restrict access to the Services, including but not limited to features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content or enforce limitations on use of the Services or related content.
We continually update our Services to offer the best possible product. While we plan to continue to offer and improve our Services, we may, without prior notice, change, cancel, create usage limits for, or permanently or temporarily stop offering or allowing you access to the Services generally (“Service Changes”). While we’ll try to give you advance notice of Service Changes that will adversely affect you, this might not be practical or possible and we retain the right to make Service Changes without notice and liability for any reason. If this Agreement ends you continue to be bound by it in any interactions you may have with the Services.
You are fully responsible for your interactions with other Users, and we have no liability for your interactions with any other Users, or for any User’s actions or inactions with respect to you.
iv) USER CONTRIBUTIONS
The Services may contain interactive features like personal messaging and product review functions that allow Users to post, submit, publish, display, or transmit (collectively, “Share”) messages, content and other materials (“User Contributions”) to Users or other persons content or materials on or through the Services. All User Contributions must comply with this Agreement.
You represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to the User Contributions, have the right to grant the licenses granted above, and all of your User Contributions do and will comply with this Agreement.
You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you Share, and you, not we, have full responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness. We are not responsible or liable to any third party for the content or accuracy of any User Contributions posted by you or any other User.
We have the right to:
- Remove or refuse to post any User Contributions in our sole discretion.
- Take any action with respect to any User Contribution that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion, including if we believe that such User Contribution violates this Agreement, infringes any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity, threatens the safety of Users or the public, or could create liability for us.
- Disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy.
- Take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Services.
- Terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Services for any or no reason, including without limitation, any violation of this Agreement.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Services. This next sentence is surrounded by stars because it is important: *** You waive and hold us and our affiliates, licensees, and service providers harmless from any claims resulting from any action we or our affiliates, licensees, and service providers take during, or taken as a consequence of, investigations related to such cooperation. ***
We cannot review all User Contributions before they are Shared, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. We assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any User or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described above.

You consent to such automatic upgrading on your mobile device, and agree that the terms and conditions of this Agreement will apply to all such upgrades. Any third-party code that may be incorporated in our App is covered by the applicable open source or third-party license EULA, if any, authorizing use of such code. The foregoing license grant is not a sale of our App or any copy thereof, and Clever or its third-party partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the App (and any copy thereof). Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, is void. Clever reserves all rights not expressly granted under this Agreement. If our App is being acquired on behalf of the United States Government, then the following provision applies. Our App will be deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation”, respectively, pursuant to DFAR Section 227.7202 and FAR Section 12.212, as applicable.

The following applies if you acquire our App from the Apple App Store (“Apple-Sourced Software”): You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is solely between you and Clever, not Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) and that Apple has no responsibility for the Apple-Sourced Software or content thereof. Your use of the Apple-Sourced Software must comply with the App Store Terms of Service. You acknowledge that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Apple-Sourced Software. In the event of any failure of the Apple-Sourced Software to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the Apple-Sourced Software to you; to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Apple-Sourced Software, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be solely governed by this Agreement and any law applicable to Clever as provider of the software.

You acknowledge that, in the event of any third-party claim that the Apple-Sourced Software or your possession and use of that Apple-Sourced Software infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, Clever, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement. You and Clever acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement as relates to your license of the Apple-Sourced Software, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement as relates to your license of the Apple-Sourced Software against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

vi) LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
*** To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Clever, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers or licensors be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, that result from the use of, or inability to use, the Services.

The Services are controlled and operated from US-based facilities, and we make no representations that they’re appropriate or available for use in other locations. If you access or use the Services from other jurisdictions, you understand that you’re entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations.

vii) GOVERNING LAW
You agree that: (i) the Services will be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Services will be deemed passive services that do not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement will be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. You acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of the Arbitration Agreement in Section 3(viii) and preempts all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA is determined to not apply to any issue that arises from or relates to the Arbitration Agreement, then that issue shall be resolved under and governed by the law of your state of residence. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any actions related to this Agreement. You agree that Santa Clary County, California is the proper and exclusive forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
*** Read this section carefully because it requires Parents and Developers to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which they can seek relief from Clever. ***
If you are a Parent or a Developer, then this section (the “Arbitration Agreement”) applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and Clever that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) this Agreement, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of the Services, including receipt of any advertising or marketing communications; (c) any transactions through, by, or using the Services; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with us, directly or indirectly, as a consumer (“Claim” or collectively, “Claims”). The Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your agreement to this Agreement.
If you are a new User, you can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement within 30 days of accepting this Agreement by emailing us at email@example.com with your first and last name and stating your intent to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Note that opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect any other part of this Agreement, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought.
For any Claim, you agree to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any Claim exclusively through binding arbitration by AAA before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”), under the Expedited Procedures then in effect for AAA (the “Rules”), except as provided herein. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control. AAA may be contacted at www.adr.org, where the Rules are also available. The arbitration will be conducted in the U.S. county where you live or Delaware, unless we agree otherwise. If you are using the Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Services for non-commercial purposes: (i) AAA may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from AAA; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and Clever agree that the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Agreement, any provision of the Agreement, is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel.
Nothing in this section shall be deemed as: preventing us from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights; or preventing you from asserting claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances on only an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
If this Arbitration Agreement is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the remaining provisions of the Arbitration Agreement, which shall remain in force, or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver below is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction. All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be arbitrated under its terms, and the parties agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
ix) CLASS ACTION / JURY TRIAL WAIVER
*** With respect to all Parents and Developers, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Services for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You and Clever agree that the arbitrator may award relief only to an individual claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief on your individual claim(s). Any relief awarded may not affect other users. You and Clever further agree that , by entering into this Agreement, you and Clever are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to bring, join, or participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind as a plaintiff or class member. ***
x) DMCA NOTICE
