You shall be solely liable for any damages resulting from any infringement of copyrights, trade secret, or other intellectual property rights, or any other harm resulting from your uploading, posting or submission of Your Content to the Website or through the LMS.

B. CONTRIBUTIONS TO RESTRICTED PUBLIC AREAS.

By posting Content in a Public Area, you are choosing to make Your Content public and you are submitting such Content under the Creative Commons License. Some Public Areas, however, may be restricted to a particular group of users based on categories such as users’ class, school, or other custom created group (each a “Restricted Public Area”) to the extent indicated on the Website from time to time, such that Content posted or shared in a Restricted Public Area will only be viewable by other users who have access to such Restricted Public Area. Please note that, once you share information in a Restricted Public Area, like other Public Areas, other users with access to such Restricted Public Area may copy and share such Content, through the Website or otherwise, with third parties under the Creative Commons License.

C. COMMUNICATIONS WITH INSTRUCTORS.

i. Instructors or administrators may use the Website as a forum to assist students with their studies outside of the classroom. Instructors may view Restricted Public Areas or areas within the LMS for a particular Class (as defined below), as well as any other information that a user makes available to the Instructor. Boundless may provide an option on the Website for the user to select for certain Content to be shared with the Instructor only. The features available through the LMS will be determined by the School and not Boundless. You should check with your School regarding its policies. Boundless may add a feature to the Services for Instructors to assign study questions to certain users to a Restricted Public Areas or the LMS for a particular class (each, a “Class”). Instructors may be permitted to receive a summary of certain metrics as described on the Website or as determined by the School from time to time regarding how certain users within a Class are using the Services.

Part of the Services include a Social Notebook feature that permits users to take notes online and highlight text (collectively “User Notes”) while reading online and share such User Notes with other users.

By submitting such User Notes through the Services you deem such User Notes as Content for public display on our Services under the Creative Commons License, unless, in the case of Website use, you opt-out through your account settings by making your User Notes “private” before you submit those User Notes. Unless you opt-out and make your User Notes “private” through the Website or such User Notes are submitted by you through your use of the LMS and a privacy election is available in such LMS, your User Notes may be displayed in our Public Areas and through the LMS. If your settings are private for User Notes, you nonetheless agree that Boundless may use your User Notes on an aggregate basis by removing any Personal Information. You may not be able to view other users’ User Notes on the Website, if you make your own User Notes private.

E. CONTRIBUTIONS BY OTHER USERS.

You understand that Boundless does not control, and is not responsible or liable for Content made available by users of the Services through the Website or the LMS, including, without limitation, the conduct of users or for views, opinions and statements expressed in Content of other users submitted for display in a Public Area or through the LMS.

The parties shall appoint as sole arbitrator a retired judge who presided in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The parties shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys' fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator). All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief, security, or other equitable remedies from federal and state courts located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any other court of competent jurisdiction. Under no circumstances shall the arbitrator be authorized to award punitive damages, including but not limited to federal or state statutes permitting multiple or punitive damage awards. Any purported award of punitive or multiple damages shall be beyond the arbitrator’s authority, void, and unenforceable.
