ACCESSING THE WEBSITE AND ACCOUNT SECURITY
The Websites are only available for individuals aged 13 years or older. If you are 13 or older, but under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, you should review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand it.
SIGN-IN NAME, PASSWORD, AND UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS
FEES AND PAYMENT
As consideration for any purchase you make on the Websites, you shall pay Resume Consulting Firm all applicable fees and taxes. We (or our third-party payment processor) shall authorize your credit card, bank account, or other approved payment facility you provided during the registration process for the full payment of the fees and any applicable taxes, and you hereby consent to the same. If the mailing address you provided us is in the United States, all payments will be charged and made in U.S. dollars. If the mailing address you provided us is outside the United States or any of its possessions or territories, all payments will be charged and made in your local currency.
You must provide current, complete, and accurate billing and credit card information. You must promptly update all billing information (such as billing address, card number, and expiration date) to keep your account current, complete, and accurate, and you must promptly contact us if your credit card is lost or stolen, or if you become aware of a potential breach of account security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your Sign-In Name or Password). You hereby authorize Resume Consulting Firm to obtain or determine updated or replacement expiration dates for your credit card in the event that the credit card you provided us expires. We reserve the right to charge any renewal card issued to you to the same extent as the expired card. If payment is not received from your credit card issuer, you hereby agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of your credit card may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which you will be responsible to pay. You are advised to check with your bank and credit card issuer for details.
RESULTS FIRST, PAY LATER
RCF's mission is to help people get paid more. In order to make the programs affordable, we have implemented Results First, Pay Later, on select programs which will be referred to in these terms as "Deferred Payment Plan."
Resume Consulting Firm enables clients to defer the cost of the program over an extended period, so they can begin the program without paying the full cost upfront. The Deferred Payment Plan, requires a commitment deposit, and the remaining balance is split into two equal monthly payments deferred until the earlier of either (1)12 weeks after the program begins; or (2) after a client gets hired in a new position or starts earning. Resume Consulting Firm does not lend money to clients. It is, however, important to note that should clients choose to participate in the Deferred Payment Plan, the client is ineligible for any Pay In Full discounts.
When you choose the Deferred Payment Plan, you agree to set up automatic payment plan that begins 12 weeks after the program ends. However, if you are hired sooner then you agree to set up two monthly installment payments to begin no later than your second paycheck after you have received a raise, promotion, or new job. Failure to make deferred payments in accordance with the scheduled repayment plan may result in your information being passed along to the leading credit bureaus and appearing on your credit report and possible wage garnishments. If you choose the deferred payment plan, you will be required to provide proof of identity, and identity verification and any additional information requested for eligibility. This information will be due before you gain access to the Program. Your credit will NOT be pulled for the purpose of this agreement.
In the event that you have not started a new position within the 12 weeks, due to illness, an emergency, or for any reason, you have the ability to extend your deferment for another 6 weeks, for a maximum deferment of 18 weeks. In order to be granted the extension a request must be received no earlier than 14 days before the program ends and no later than 5 days before the program's end date. Requests should be sent to email@example.com. No additional extensions beyond this period will be granted.
If it is determined that you did not set up a payment plan after you received your second payment directly proceeding your raise, promotion, or a new job, an additional $75 per month after the initial payment was due, will be added to your balance and will continue to accrue monthly until you have paid the first installment. The 2nd installment is due within 30 days of the initial payment, and any accrued fees above the cost of the Program will be due within 30 days of the 2nd installment payment. If you withdraw or do not complete the Program, the amount deferred is still due and payable to Resume Consulting Firm.
In the event that you have not started a new position within the 12 weeks, due to illness, an emergency, or for any reason, you have the ability to extend your deferment for another 6 weeks, for a maximum deferment of 18 weeks. In order to be granted the extension, a request must be received no earlier than 14 days before the program ends and no later than 5 days before the program's end date. Requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. No additional extensions beyond this period will be granted.

RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Program, and the Company will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. The Company reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Program.
You agree and accept that the only venue for resolving a dispute with the Company shall be in the venue set forth herein in these Terms. If you have any dispute with the Company, you agree that before taking any formal action, you will contact us at our mailing address of Clark First Consulting LLC, 5257 Buckeystown Pike, #125, Frederick, MD 21704 and firstname.lastname@example.org, and provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including your full name, email and telephone number). If not resolved first by good-faith negotiation between the parties, every controversy or dispute relating to these Terms will be resolved through arbitration according to the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will be confidential and binding. All claims against Company must be lodged within 100-days of the date of the first claim or otherwise be forfeited forever. Unless you and the Company, both agree to another location or telephonic arbitration, the arbitration shall occur in the city of Frederick (MD, United States of America), before a single arbitrator within ninety (90) days from the date of the initial arbitration demand. The parties shall cooperate to ensure that the arbitration process is completed within the ninety (90) day period. The parties shall cooperate in exchanging and expediting discovery as part of the arbitration process. The written decision of the arbitrators (which will provide for the payment of costs) will be absolutely binding and conclusive and not subject to judicial review, and may be entered and enforced in any court of proper jurisdiction, either as a judgment of law or a decree in equity, as circumstances may indicate. In disputes involving unpaid balances on behalf of Client, Client is responsible for any and all arbitration costs and reasonable attorney fees.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms. You and the Company, agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in the party’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, you or we may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court with jurisdiction or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). You or we may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction to the extent such claims do not seek equitable relief.
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending a written notice of your decision to opt out to Resume Consulting Firm at the address identified in this section. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first date that you receive access to the Program. Otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE ABOVE DISPUTE PROCEDURES SHALL BE YOUR SOLE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND RESUME CONSULTING FIRM REGARDING ANY ASPECT OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING THE ENROLMENT IN OUR PROGRAMS) AND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO LEAD OR PARTICIPATE IN A LAWSUIT INVOLVING OTHER PERSONS, SUCH AS A CLASS ACTION.
In the event that a dispute arises between the Parties for which monetary relief is inadequate and where a Party may suffer irreparable harm in the absence of an appropriate remedy, the injured Party may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for equitable relief, including without limitation a temporary restraining order or injunction.
Any notices to be given hereunder by either Party to the other may be effected by personal delivery or by mail, registered or certified, postage prepaid with return receipt requested. Notices delivered personally shall be deemed communicated as of the date of actual receipt; mailed notices shall be deemed communicated as of three (3) days after the date of mailing.
