You are required to use the first and last name associated with the job title you choose to list on the Certified FETI Directory and/or your real first and last name if you choose not to list a job title. Further, you may not choose a name that impersonates another person, is misleading, violates any intellectual property or other proprietary rights, is vulgar or offensive, uses ‘FETI’ or ‘Certified’ as all or part of it, or that we reject, which we may choose to do in our discretion.  We reserve the right to remove, reject or otherwise change for any reason any information you input to your profile on any of our services.

If you choose to include a photograph or picture on your profile in any of our Services you may only display an actual picture of your real person or a logo of an organization you are actually associated with and have received permission from the organization to use on the Service. You may not under any circumstances display a photograph that is an avatar, drawing or other graphic representation that is not a real image of your actual person.

You understand and agree that you are not allowed to describe yourself at any time as being endorsed by Certified FETI or Veracities PBC without explicit written permission to do so or without being listed in a section of the Certified FETI website that specifically identifies you as endorsed, recommended or otherwise described.

Governing Law; Mandatory Arbitration

You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site or these Terms, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions.

If not prohibited by applicable law, any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms will be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If the total amount in controversy (a) is $50,000 or less, the dispute will be settled by a single arbitrator; or (b) exceeds $50,000, the dispute will be settled by three arbitrators. Arbitration will occur in Portland, Oregon, or the mutually agreed upon location nearest to Portland if the arbitration cannot occur in Portland.

The parties will be entitled to conduct discovery in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, subject to limitation by the arbitrator to secure the just and efficient resolution of the dispute. If the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000, the arbitrator’s decision will include a statement specifying in reasonable detail the basis for and computation of the amount of the award, if any. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding. The party substantially prevailing in the arbitration will also be entitled to recover such amount for its costs and attorney fees incurred in connection with the arbitration as determined by the arbitrator. Nothing herein will prevent a party from resorting to a court of competent jurisdiction in those instances where injunctive relief may be appropriate pending the outcome of the arbitration proceedings. For purposes of these Terms, “the party substantially prevailing in the arbitration” means the party that prevails either affirmatively or by means of a successful defense with respect to claims having the greatest value or importance as reasonably determined by the arbitrator, after taking into consideration any settlement offers made by the parties.


No Class Actions

We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) an arbitrator cannot combine multiple persons’ claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and cannot be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this section is not enforceable or valid, then this section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply.


Severability

If any provision of the Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, such invalidity or unenforceability shall attach only to such provision or part of such provision and the remaining part of such provision and all other provisions of these Terms shall continue to be in full force and effect.

  9. Veracities PBC reserves the right to cancel any orders placed using promotional vouchers.

The voucher amount will not be refunded for such cases.
  10. Suitable legal action will be taken against websites involved in unauthorized publication of Veracities PBC vouchers. Veracities PBC will only honor vouchers, which are issued or published directly by our partner websites or us.

Force Majeure

Veracities PBC shall not be held responsible for any delay or failure in performance of any part of the Services to the extent such delay or failure is caused by fire, flood, explosion, war, embargo, government requirement, civil or military authority, act of God including unusually severe or abnormal weather, pandemic, or other similar causes beyond its control. Further, Veracities PBC shall not be held financially responsible for any expenses incurred by a third party due to cancellation of an event if one or all of the identified instructors are unable to travel to the training location due to circumstances outside their control.  Specifically, this includes disruption in the instructors’ travel due to court mandated subpoena or weather, or cancelation by a party, other than the instructor, of reserved travel arrangements that make it so the instructor is unable to travel to the training event prior to the start time. Veracities reserves the right to substitute an instructor of their choosing, if available, should this occur.

These Terms shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties.
