Welcome to the Yellowdig.com platform (“Yellowdig”), an online platform that provides educational products and services for students (“Student Users”) and educators (“Educator Users,” and collectively with Student Users, “Users”). The Yellowdig Platform (defined below) is owned and operated by Six Deg Inc. (the “Company,” or “we” or “us”).
IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 13 (“CHILD USER”) AND/OR ARE OTHERWISE UNABLE TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT (“MINOR USER”), THEN YOU NEED TO GET YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN (YOUR “PARENT”) TO GIVE US PERMISSION FOR YOU TO USE THE YELLOWDIG PLATFORM.
IF YOU ARE A PARENT AND YOU GIVE US PERMISSION FOR A CHILD USER OR A MINOR USER TO REGISTER WITH AND USE THE YELLOWDIG PLATFORM, THEN YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AS THEY RELATE TO SUCH USER’S USE OF THE YELLOWDIG PLATFORM.
1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
A. The Yellowdig Platform is owned and operated by the Company. Access and use of the Yellowdig Platform is provided by the Company to you on the condition that you accept these Terms, and by accessing or using the Yellowdig Platform, you agree to these Terms. If you do not accept these Terms, you may not access or use the Yellowdig Platform in any possible form. References to “use,” “access,” or “permission” (to use or access) the Yellowdig Platform refers to use, access, or permission to use or access the Yellowdig Platform in any way and to any extent.
D. A Member’s right to use the Yellowdig Platform is personal to the Member or the individual or entity who/that acquired such Member’s access. Unless expressly stated otherwise in writing and with the Company’s express prior consent, any rights in these Terms are not transferable by a Member to any other person or entity. If you are accessing and using the Yellowdig Platform on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms. In that situation, “you” and “your” will refer to both you and that entity.
E. The Company shall have the right at any time to change or discontinue the Yellowdig Platform, the Yellowdig Website and/or any feature or function thereof, including, but not limited to, content, hours of availability, and equipment needed for access or use.
G. If you breach any of the Terms, the Company may automatically terminate your use of the Yellowdig Platform, without notice, and any failure of the Company to terminate your access shall not be deemed a waiver thereof with respect to such instance of breach or any subsequent or prior breach.
2. CHANGED TERMS; PRICING & SUBSCRIPTION TERMS
The Company shall have the right at any time to change or modify these Terms, or any part thereof, or to impose new conditions, including, but not limited to, adding fees and charges for use and changes to its pricing for membership, subscription features and access to Content and other electronic resources. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions (collectively, “Modified Terms”) shall be effective immediately upon your affirmative consent, which we will require of you the next time you access the Platform, unless the changes are of such a nature that only notice is required, in which case, the Modified Terms shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof and your continued use of the Yellowdig Platform shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of such Modified Terms. Notice of such Modified Terms will typically be given by electronic mail but may be given by posting on the Yellowdig Platform.
To the extent that such Modified Terms relate to pricing changes for the Yellowdig Platform and its resources, features and functions that a Member has already purchased for a specific amount or time period, the original pricing will be honored even if a change is subsequently made (except to the extent that such pricing was originally provided on a contingent basis with respect to future changes); however, to the extent of a change, any and all pricing for new products, services, features, resources and other materials shall be on the basis of the pricing when sold or renewed.
While visiting the Yellowdig Website is free, access to certain features and functionality of the Yellowdig Platform may require payment of such fees as may be determined by the Company from time to time. In addition, use of the Yellowdig Platform requires that you purchase a subscription or that a third party (e.g., an Educational Institution) purchases a subscription on your behalf. Payment for subscriptions must be made in accordance with the payment options described on the Yellowdig Website from time to time, and all payments are non-refundable. By subscribing to the Yellowdig Platform, you acknowledge that your subscription has a recurring payment feature and will automatically renew unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the then-current subscription term by following the cancellation procedures described on the Yellowdig Website from time to time.

B. If you are a Child User or a Minor User, you may not use, or register to use, the Yellowdig Platform unless and until you have consent and approval from your Parent.

C. A Child User or Minor User may use the Yellowdig Platform if registered through certain educational organizations (“Educational Institutions”) or, in certain cases, by representatives of the Educational Institutions (“Educator Users”) that have entered into a relationship directly with the Company and through which education organization or Educator User the parent and/or guardian of such Child User or Minor User has consented to use of the Yellowdig Platform. Further, in certain instances, a Child User or Minor User may use the Yellowdig Platform via one of the third party applications that integrate into or with the Yellowdig Platform. A Child User or Minor User that has registered through such external educational organizations, third party applications, or Educator Users will only be permitted to use the Yellowdig Platform for so long as the Company reasonably believes that such access has been consented to by the Child User’s or Minor User’s Parent.
IF YOU ARE AN EDUCATOR USER AND YOU REGISTER AN ACCOUNT FOR A CHILD USER OR A MINOR USER, YOU, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION YOU REPRESENT, HEREBY REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU (AND YOUR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION) HAVE RECEIVED EXPRESS CONSENT FROM SUCH CHILD USER’S OR MINOR USER’S PARENT FOR YOU TO REGISTER THE CHILD USER OR MINOR USER FOR THE YELLOWDIG PLATFORM AND FOR YOU TO PROVIDE TO YELLOWDIG THE INFORMATION YOU DISCLOSE IN CONNECTION WITH THE REGISTRATION OF SUCH CHILD USER OR MINOR USER. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU FURTHER AGREE, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF YOUR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION, TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS ON BEHALF OF SUCH CHILD USER OR MINOR USER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION BEING LIABLE FOR ALL USE OF THE YELLOWDIG PLATFORM BY THE CHILD USER MINOR USER. You, individually and on behalf of your Educational Institution, hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Company harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to (a) your violation of any provision, representation or warranty in these Terms; (b) the use of the Platform by the Child User or Minor User; (c) your failure to obtain sufficient parental or legal guardian consent; (d) your registration of the Child User or Minor User, or (e) any other action related to the Child User or Minor User.
