e. Payment of Subscription Fees
When purchasing any paid subscriptions, you will be asked to supply certain payment information, including information regarding your billing account (such as credit card, debit card, or PayPal account number). You agree that all information you provide us will be accurate, complete, and current. By subscribing, you authorize New Masters and our payment processors to store and/or transfer your payment details and all other relevant information as needed to facilitate the processing of payments. You agree to pay all valid charges incurred by you or any other user of your account (including all installment payments and/or fees, if applicable) and/or any fees for the use of any payment mechanism or account connected to your New Masters subscription, including any applicable taxes and processing charges, if any, relating to your subscriptions. If any problems arise with the billing account or credit or debit card associated with your subscription (for example, the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable), our payment processor will automatically reschedule the billing date until the amount due is paid in full. If these attempts fail and/or the issue(s) cannot be resolved by contacting the account and/or card issuer, we will notify you via email using the email address associated with your account requesting that you resolve the problem, and may suspend or terminate your subscription. You agree and authorize us to charge you applicable sales or other related taxes to which your subscription may be subject and which may vary from time to time.

Your account is for your personal use only. You may not authorize others to use your account, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity, except if previously agreed to by us. You acknowledge that New Masters is not responsible for third party access to your account that results from theft or misappropriation of your user names and passwords.
5. Cancellations Policy
Cancellation at Any Time with No Refund. You may cancel your subscription to any paid subscription at any time during the term of such registration or subscription or any renewal period by going to your subscription page (https://www.nma.art/my-account/billing-and-subscription/), click “view” next to the subscription you want to cancel, then click “cancel”. In such case, your subscription will terminate at the end of the subscription term for which you have paid, and you will not receive any refund for any unused days of such subscription term.
No Automatic Cancellation. If a subscriber purchases overlapping subscriptions, the prior subscription is not automatically cancelled, and the subscriber must affirmatively cancel the prior subscription. For example, if a subscriber decides to take advantage of a limited promotional price to purchase an Annual Subscription while subscribed to a Monthly Subscription, the User must cancel the Monthly Subscription. The User’s Monthly Subscription will not automatically cancel with purchase of an Annual Subscription. Similarly, if the User purchases an Annual Subscription while subscribed to a Quarterly Subscription or Biannual Subscription, the User must cancel the Quarterly or Biannual Subscription. The User’s Quarterly or Biannual Subscription will not automatically cancel with purchase of an Annual Subscription. However, if cancelled with at least one full month left on the old subscription, New Masters will add one month to the subscriber’s new Annual Subscription upon User request.
6. Free Trial
From time to time and at our sole discretion, we may offer you the opportunity to try a paid subscription for free for a limited time (the “Free Trial”). Free Trials are only available for new Users who have not previously signed up for a Free Trial or a paid subscription. Users with previous or existing paid or free subscriptions are not eligible for Free Trials. At the end of the Free Trial, you will automatically be billed for the first month or year (or other term length, as agreed upon during the purchase process), unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the Free Trial. You agree to comply with any additional terms, restrictions, or limitations connected to any Free Trial. You may not sign up for multiple accounts in order to receive a Free Trial. You may not change subscriptions during your Free Trial; however, you are free to change to any other paid subscription when your Free Trial expires.

20. Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and any claim or action related to or arising from these Terms, the Services, or content on the Site shall be governed by California law, without regard to choice of law principles or any provision that would make the laws of another jurisdiction applicable; provided, however, that Section 21 of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. This choice of law provision is only intended to specify the use of California law to interpret this Agreement and is not intended to create any substantive right to non-Californians to assert claims under California law whether by statute, common law, or otherwise.
If the Arbitration Agreement in Section 21 is held to be unenforceable, you agree that any claims or disputes must be resolved in the federal or state courts located in Orange County, California to the extent permissible by applicable law.
21. Arbitration Agreement, Waiver of Jury Trial, Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND GOVERNS HOW YOU AND NEW MASTERS ACADEMY CAN BRING CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. THIS SECTION WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION, REQUIRE YOU AND NEW MASTERS ACADEMY TO SUBMIT CLAIMS TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration
This agreement to arbitrate (“Arbitration Agreement”) is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and survives the termination of this Agreement and your relationship with New Masters Academy.
Informal Dispute Resolution
To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to, arising from or regarding your use of the Site or Services, your relationship with New Masters Academy, or this Agreement (including previous versions), (“Dispute”), you and New Masters Academy agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least 30 days before initiating any out of court settlement, arbitration, or court proceeding (“Informal Dispute Resolution”). Such Informal Dispute Resolution will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is the e-mail associated with your account. New Masters Academy’s address for such notice is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If this Arbitration Agreement applies and is not resolved by Informal Dispute Resolution, then to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and except as provided below, you and New Masters Academy agree to arbitrate any and all Disputes, including claims by New Masters Academy, claims against New Masters Academy, and claims against New Masters Academy’s Affiliates by binding arbitration in Newport Beach, California.
If there is a dispute about the arbitrability of any claim (including about the formation, scope, applicability, interpretation, validity, and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement), you and New Masters Academy agree that this threshold dispute shall be resolved by the arbitrator, except as expressly provided below.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND NEW MASTERS ACADEMY ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS, UNLESS EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS INTENDED TO REQUIRE ARBITRATION OF EVERY CLAIM OR DISPUTE THAT CAN LAWFULLY BE ARBITRATED, EXCEPT THOSE CLAIMS AND DISPUTES THAT, BY THE TERMS OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED FROM THE REQUIREMENT TO ARBITRATE.
The arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) by one (1) arbitrator who is a retired judge. The parties shall conduct discovery as agreed upon or as permitted by the arbitrator. A party may file for an order on the arbitration decision exclusively in the California Superior Court, County of Orange or the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The parties shall share equally the costs of the arbitrator, arbitration body, and arbitration facilities (if applicable). Each party may bring a claim or action for injunctive relief without submitting the claim to final and binding arbitration. Neither party shall have the obligation to post a bond or demonstrate actual harm before bringing a claim or action for injunctive relief. Each party consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the California Superior Court, County of Orange or the United States District Court for the Central District of California for any equitable claim or other action related to or arising from these Terms. Each party shall bear his/her/its own expenses and attorneys’ fees related to any arbitration, claim or action.
Class Action Waiver
The parties agree that 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, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and New Masters specifically agree in writing to do so following initiation of the arbitration. Neither you, nor any other User of the Site or Services, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, consolidated or private attorney general proceeding.
If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement (other than the Class Action Waiver) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable, and the Dispute or Claims will be decided by a court.
Exceptions to Arbitration
The Arbitration Agreement shall not require arbitration of the following types of claims:
- Small claims actions that are within the scope of small claims court jurisdiction and brought on an individual basis;
- Applications for provisional remedies, preliminary injunctions, and temporary restraining orders relating to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights;
- Claims that may not be subject to arbitration as a matter of generally applicable law not preempted by the FAA.
Nothing in this Arbitration Agreement prevents you from making a report to or filing a claim or charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Labor, Securities Exchange Commission, National Labor Relations Board, or Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, or a similar local, state or federal agency, and nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall be deemed to preclude or excuse a party from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill the party’s obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration. This Agreement and Arbitration Agreement do not prevent you from participating in an investigation by a government agency of any report, claim or charge otherwise covered by this Arbitration Agreement and do not prevent you from receiving an award for information provided to any government agencies.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between New Masters Academy and User regarding the subject matter hereof. Any previous agreement, whether oral or written, between New Masters Academy and User dealing with the subject matter hereof is superseded. These Terms may only be modified or amended in writing. If any portion of these Terms is determined to be unenforceable for any reason, such portion will be deemed severed and the remaining terms and conditions shall continue in full force and effect. Upon User’s breach or threatened breach of these Terms, New Masters Academy may pursue any legal or equitable remedy available, including but not limited to, direct, consequential and punitive damages and injunctive relief. New Masters Academy’s remedies are cumulative and not exclusive. Failure of New Masters Academy to exercise any remedy or enforce any portion of this Agreement at any time shall not operate as a waiver of any remedy or of the right to enforce any portion of the Agreement at any time thereafter. User agrees that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or action arising out of or regarding this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. By accessing the Site or Services, User signs for and accepts this shortening of the statutes of limitations.
