VI. Electronic Fund Transfer Rights and Error Resolution

1.It is very important that you contact us at once if you believe your user ID or password has been compromised, or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. Under applicable banking regulations, the extent of your liability for an unauthorized transaction is largely determined by your promptness in notifying us or your bank if someone has gained access to your password, or if a transfer or withdrawal in your monthly statement is incorrect or unauthorized. Notifying us quickly limits your liability:

a.Ifyou notify us within two days after you learn that your password or other means to access your account may have become known by an unauthorized person, you can lose no more than $50.00 if an unauthorized person uses your password or other means to access your account without your permission to initiate a transaction. If you do not notify us within two days, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your password or other means to access your account without your permission if you had told us, you could be liable for as much as $500.00.

b.You can inspect your transaction history at any time by logging in to your account on the Peery Academy website.

c.In case of unauthorized transactions you should notify Peery Academy via Email. Please 1) Tell us your name and primary email address; 2) Describe the error or the transaction you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; and, 3) Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error. If you tell us by telephone, we may require that you send your complaint in writing within ten (10) days. We will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) days after we hear from you, and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) calendar days to investigate the complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will provisionally credit your transaction account within ten (10) days for the amount you think is in error, so that you may have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) days, we may not provisionally credit your transaction account. If we determine there was no error, we will mail you a written explanation within three (3) days after we finish the investigation. You may ask for copies of documents that we used in our investigation. We may revoke any provisional credit provided to you if we find that an error did not occur.

VII. Process Integrity Program

In general.Peery Academy's Process Integrity Program as defined below, is designed to try to help remove the tension of money matters from the teaching relationship while maintaining the highest levels of accuracy in the payment process. This program also helps to reduce the risk of reversals for teachers who follow specified risk-reduction procedures.

3.Credit Card Transactions: PIP does not replace or reduce any other consumer rights Users may have, including reversal rights that may be granted by a User's credit card issuer. Peery Academy is the merchant of record with respect to all credit card transactions through the Peery Academy service to purchase goods or services. As such, we afford customers the rights and privileges expected of a credit card transaction. You acknowledge that Peery Academy does not control the outcome of any reversal decision initiated through a User's credit card issuer.

Peery Academy encourages all buyer purchase disputes to be filed and resolved through the Peery Academy dispute resolution process, and reserves the right to terminate or restrict account privileges of buyers who file reversal complaints without attempting to resolve the complaints through Peery Academy. If a reversal claim is initiated, whether as a result of a dispute or for any other reason, the parties agree to provide to any requesting party on a timely basis any and all necessary documentation to resolve any reversal or dispute. Peery Academy DOES NOT act as the agent of either party in any transaction or resulting dispute, though Peery Academy does control the outcome of disputes initiated through the Service's dispute resolution process.

If you receive funds through a Peery Academy transaction funded with the sender's credit card, in the event the credit card transaction is charged back and you do not qualify for PIP, you agree to hold Peery Academy harmless for the reversal amount and to reimburse Peery Academy from either your Peery Academy account or by other means.

VIII. Additional Terms of Use

In addition to the terms listed above, you further agree that Peery Academy may access and disclose information about you or your use of the Studio Service when Peery Academy deems such action necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or legal process, to protect Peery Academy's systems and customers, or to ensure the integrity and operation of Peery Academy's systems. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, such disclosure may include, without limitation, user profile information (e.g., name, Email address, etc.), transaction information, IP address and traffic information, and usage history.

3.Taxes. Each user is required to provide its Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN: EIN if incorporated, otherwise a social security number) upon request. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive and to collect, report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. Peery Academy is not obligated to determine whether taxes apply, and is not responsible to collect, report, or remit any taxes arising from any transaction.

4.Account Use. By accepting the terms as outlined in this Agreement, you attest that you hold all the necessary licenses to engage in the advertising and sale of the goods and services offered for sale or use. You will not use the Service, the website or any of the services offered therein for any unlawful, fraudulent or improper activity. If Peery Academy has reason to believe that you may be engaging in or have engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, or improper activity, including without limitation any violation of any terms and conditions relating to the Service, the website or any related services, your access to the Service may be suspended or terminated. You will cooperate fully with Peery Academy to investigate any suspected unlawful, fraudulent or improper activity.

5.Fees. Peery Academy's current Fee Schedule for using the Service is posted on the website. Unless otherwise stated, all fees quoted are in U.S. dollars. Users are responsible for paying all fees associated with the use of the Service.

6.Reserve Account in Case of Closure. When you receive funds through ppp, if the sender's transaction is reversed because of a credit card reversal and you have already used your three free chargebacks, you will owe Peery Academy for the amount of the reversed transaction plus any fees imposed on Peery Academy as a result of the reversal. You agree to reimburse Peery Academy from either your Peery Academy account or by other means as described in Section IV.2 under "Receipt of Payments." You authorize Peery Academy to debit your bank account linked to that Peery Academy account for the amount that you owe Peery Academy on transactions which were not covered by PIP and which were not recoverable from your Peery Academy balance.

If you or Peery Academy close your account, Peery Academy may retain a portion of any funds it holds in custody for you, based on your transaction history, as a reserve to the extent reasonable to protect Peery Academy against the risk of future reversals of transactions occurring prior to such closure. Peery Academy will pay you the balance of any such reserve 180 days after closure.
