a.    Entire Agreement.  These Terms contains the entire agreement between you and CIS except for any Services-specific information found on our Website.

c.    Assignment.  You may not assign, pledge, delegate, or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without CIS’s prior written consent. 

d.    Relationship. Nothing in these Terms shall create, or is intended to create an agency, employment, franchise, joint venture, or partnership relationship between you and CIS.

If a Force Majeure occurs, the rights and obligations of CIS shall be extended during the term of the Force Majeure and shall not entitle the other party to a refund, in whole or in part.

h.    Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable.  If an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators finds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.

YOU AGREE THAT NO CLAIMS OR ACTION IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, OR IN TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATED TO, THE USE OF OUR WEBSITE, OUR SERVICES, OR THESE TERMS MAY BE BROUGHT MORE THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION RELATING TO SUCH CLAIM OR ACTION AROSE. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH OUR SERVICES, TERMINATION IS YOUR SOLE REMEDY.  WE HAVE NO OTHER OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, OR RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU.

SECTION 15 – MISCELLANEOUS. 
a.    Entire Agreement.  These Terms contains the entire agreement between you and CIS except for any Services-specific information found on our Website.

c.    Assignment.  You may not assign, pledge, delegate, or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without CIS’s prior written consent. 

d.    Relationship. Nothing in these Terms shall create, or is intended to create an agency, employment, franchise, joint venture, or partnership relationship between you and CIS.

e.    Force Majeure. CIS shall not be liable if a Force Majeure causes delays or a shut down in its business. “Force Majeure” shall include but is not limited to strikes, war, civil disturbances, pandemics, shutdowns, natural disaster, acts of terrorism, acts of god, shortages or material or labor, licensing issues, permitting issues, and other causes beyond the reasonable control of CIS (other than shortage of funds) that makes running its business impossible or impracticable. If a Force Majeure occurs, the rights and obligations of CIS shall be extended during the term of the Force Majeure and shall not entitle the other party to a refund, in whole or in part. This clause will most likely apply to in-person classes which will be rescheduled or held online during a Force Majeure. If in-person classes are held online for any reason, this shall not entitle you to a refund or a reduction in the price you paid for the Course and you hereby acknowledge and agree that you will have received the benefit of the bargain in such a case.

Should either party forego arbitration, that party shall be barred from recovering their attorneys’ fees or costs. 

g.    Notices. All notices are recommended to be sent via email to support@contractorsischool.com. 

h.    Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable.  If an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators finds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.

i.    Updates. We recommend that you check the Terms periodically for updates. Updates will be reflected on our Website.

With the purchase of a Course, you are granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, revocable license to use our Services which includes but is not limited to all content, creations, videos, and otherwise found in or in connection with a Course. You hereby acknowledge and agree that CIS and its affiliates are the sole owner of its Website, the Courses, and all content found within or in connection thereto.

Any unauthorized use by you of the Website or a Course automatically terminates this license without prejudice to any other remedy provided by applicable law or these Terms. 

The initial term of the license is six (6) months (the “Term”). CIS agrees to provide you with updated Materials during the Term. If you do not complete your selected Course during the Term, subject to written approval by CIS, your license will terminate and you shall not be entitled to a refund of any kind.

SECTION 9 - FEES AND OTHER CHARGES NOT INCLUDED WITH COURSES. 
Other fees NOT included in tuition, including but not limited to: 
•    SHIPPING AND HANDLING (if applicable), 
•    STATE APPLICATION FEE: $330.00 (Paid directly to the state with the application.), 
•    FINGERPRINTING: Approximately $75.00, 
•    INITIAL LICENSE FEE: $200.00 (Paid directly to the state after the student passes the exam.), 
•    CONTRACTOR'S BOND: approx. $140 per year.  
The above figures are estimates and should not be relied on by you as these numbers may change from time to time, are not controlled by CIS, and may differ based on your particular circumstances. We recommend that you confirm all additional fees or otherwise with the State of California CSLB. If enrollment includes 1st year bond, it is limited to $140, and will be purchased with Pro-Builders Insurance Agency. If the student is obtaining a C-39 (roofing) or a C-53 (swimming pool) license, the bond may cost considerably more than the estimate provided above. If you have had a contractor’s license suspended or revoked in the past, a disciplinary bond may also be required and varies depending on a number of factors. 

SECTION 10 - MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE POLICY
We offer a money back guarantee if: (1) you enroll in a Course and complete the Course, in its entirety; (2) you sign up for and take the CSLB licensing exam; and (3) if you are unable to pass either law and/or trade portions of the contractor’s exam on your first and second try, within the Term, subject to the limitations found below. 
If the student who is enrolled in our in-class preparation course fails the exam on the first try within 6 months of his/her enrollment, CIS will cover a one-time $60.00 retest fee (we do not pay re-test fee for students enrolled in our home-study or online programs).  If the student fails the Law exam on the second try within 6 months of his/her enrollment, then the refund will be issued for the Law tuition.  If the student fails the Trade exam on the second try within 6 months of his/her enrollment, we will issue a full refund for the trade tuition.  If the student requests a refund for the course, the retest fee paid by Contractors Intelligence School, Inc. (if applicable), will be deducted from the refund.  In order to receive a refund, the student must request a refund in writing, along with the Notice of Failure To Pass an Examination issued by the state, within 14 calendar days from the date of Notice of Failure.  
All Materials must be returned before you receive money-back in connection with this provision. We cannot offer a money back guarantee if you do not take your California contractor's exam within six (6) months of your enrollment, unless agreed to in writing by CIS. We also cannot offer a money-back guarantee if you fail to take your CSLB test, do not finish your CSLB test, or other factors in our sole discretion that would impact this guarantee including, without limitation, falsely representing information in your CSLB application or other factors outside the control of CIS. Approved refunds, if any, will be sent to you within 30 days of the date of the request to the card on file.

SECTION 16 – QUESTIONS    .
If you have any questions about this Agreement, please send us an email to support@contractorsischool.com

ONLINE PRACTICE EXAMS AGREEMENT

By checking the “I accept terms and conditions” checkbox when purchasing our online practice exams (the “Practice Exams”), you hereby agree and accept the terms and conditions described in this Online Practice Exams Agreement (the “Agreement”).

Purpose

Our Practice Exams are a partial study option offered by the Contractors Intelligence School, Inc. (“us”, “we”, or “CIS”). (You and “CIS” may be referred to herein as the “Parties”).

Informational

The information contained on the Practice Exams is being provided to you for informational purposes only, which is to be used as a study tool for the Contractor’s License Exam (the “Exam”). We have made reasonable efforts to provide current and applicable questions on our Practice Exams and endeavor to provide you with valuable supplementary study options.

Test Accuracy

The questions found on our Practice Exams are designed to help you study information and concepts that will be found on the Exam, as well as the way that these concepts are tested.

The score you receive is not meant to and will not correlate to any particular score on the official exam but will give you some insight into which parts of the Exam you may need to work on or that you have adequately prepared for.

No Refunds

The purchase of our Practice Exams is final and there are no refunds under any circumstances or for any reason.

No Guarantee

We do not guarantee that you will pass the exam using only the Practice Exams. The Practice Exams included in your purchase are separate from the courses that we offer and are recommended as a supplemental study tool to help you pass the Exam.  

Only by purchasing a full course do we provide customers with a money-back guarantee.

If you only purchase the Practice Exams, you hereby understand and agree passing the Exam will be entirely dependent on the time you devote to learning the information and practicing by yourself in conjunction with the Practice Exams.  

Inspection

Sample questions for the law and trade sections (20 questions per topic) are available for your inspection before purchasing the Practice Exams. These complimentary sample questions are available to every student creating a free account with CIS.

These sample questions were extracted from the actual exam bank offered by CIS and Contractors Publisher, Inc. Students are encouraged to inspect the sample questions before purchasing the Practice Exams so that you can get a better feel for the types of questions you will be exposed to.  

No Affiliation

CIS is not affiliated, approved, or endorsed by the California Contractor’s State License Board (“CSLB”).

No Reproduction

You are not permitted to reproduce, duplicate, or transmit in any means the questions found within the Practice Exams.

Payment Disputes or Chargebacks

If you submit a dispute or chargeback with your credit card company which translates into non-payment for the Practice Exams, your past-due money owed to CIS will be referred for collection, which may impact your credit score and ability to obtain loans in the future. Should you submit a chargeback or dispute of the Practice Exams, you will be required to pay, in addition to the money owed to CIS, a one hundred and fifty dollar ($150) reimbursement fee for each disputed transaction, for administrative expenses and time spent by CIS in referring your account to a third-party (the “Chargeback Fee”). You hereby acknowledge and agree that this Chargeback Fee is not a penalty but is a fair estimation of the damages that CIS will incur as a result of dealing with your dispute or chargeback. If your dispute or chargeback is referred to a collection agency or attorney, we shall be entitled to recover all costs and fees, including reasonable attorney’s fees, in pursing the past-due balance owed by you.

Disclaimer

CIS MAKES NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION AS TO THE SUITABILITY OR QUALITY OF THESE PRACTICE EXAM MATERIALS AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANYTHING DONE OR OMITTED IN RELIANCE UPON THESE PRACTICE EXAMS. YOU SHALL HAVE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR FULFILLING ANY REQUIREMENTS OR ACCOMPLISHING ANY OBJECTIVES IF YOU ONLY PURCHASE THE PRACTICE EXAMS AND NOT A FULL COURSE.

CIS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS, AND YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE, ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, IN NO EVENT WILL CIS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT OR SIMILAR DAMAGES EVEN IF CIS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR SUCH DAMAGES WERE REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.

IN NO CASE SHALL CIS’S LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE PRICE YOU PAID FOR THE PRACTICE EXAMS.  

GOVERNING LAW

This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.

MISCELLANEOUS

The following Agreement contains the entire agreement between the Parties as it concerns the Practice Exams. No other agreements, representations, warranties or other matters, oral or written, purportedly agreed to, represented by, or on behalf of CIS by any of its employees or agents or contained in any sales materials or brochures, shall bind the Parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof. CIS will not be held liable as a result of any changes, data loss or corruption, cancellation, loss of access, or downtime to the fullest extent applicable by the limitation of liability laws. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to any third party for any reason. If any term or provision herein is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, the validity or enforceability of the remainder of the terms or provisions herein will remain in full force and effect. Your failure to exercise any of your rights under this Agreement will constitute or be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of those rights.
