Heights is an online course creation software platform for creating and managing an online education program. We provide tools that help you to create and organize educational content to teach Students and analyze their progress.
In order to use our Service, you must meet a number of conditions, including but not limited to:
Heights provides its Service on an as-is basis and, notwithstanding any other statements or examples given on our Site or elsewhere, makes no representations as to how Heights can be best used by any specific User or Student. You agree that you bear the sole responsibility of determining whether the Heights App is suitable for your use, and that Heights shall not be liable for any losses which result from the use of our Service.
Once you have met our eligibility criteria described above and paid the appropriate fee to Heights, you will be provided with access to our Service. Although you have met the preliminary requirements to use our Service, there are certain additional rules which apply before, during, and subsequent to your registration with Heights. You must not:
Fair Use Policy for Unlimited Uploading and Bandwidth: Generally, we do not limit or impose additional charges for video or data storage (ex: the data stored in your Program for courses, products, text, files, video, audio, and other multimedia content you create), or bandwidth consumption (ex: the data used in order to deliver your files, site pages, and videos to Students). This policy is subject to fair use: If your aggregate storage usage or bandwidth usage (across every account you control) is higher than 99% of Users on our App in any calendar month, we may, in our discretion, charge fees for excessive usage, require you to upgrade to a different plan, or terminate your account(s) upon advance written notice.
All payments are processed by our third party payment processor, Stripe, and payment may be made to them by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club cards. All prices on our Site, unless otherwise stated, are listed in United States dollars.
We may decide to apply varying payment plans from time to time. For example, we may require that you pay one lump sum for the purchase of our App, or we may rebill you on a recurring subscription basis. In either case, payment terms and, if applicable, rebilling periods shall be posted on our Site and are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference. If two or more listed payment terms conflict with each other, the one most beneficial to Heights shall take precedence.
You may cancel your subscription at any time. Refunds will be provided in full within the first thirty days of your subscription if for any reason you are not satisfied with our Service and notify us of your request for a refund within that time. After thirty days beyond your initial purchase, we will not be obliged to provide any refund, even on a pro rata basis. You may cancel your Service at any time after the initial thirty days and you will continue to have access to our Service until the end of the most recently paid subscription period, if applicable.
Should payment plans change or increase after an initial subscription, current Users will either have the option of staying on their current plan or may be grandfathered into the new subscription plan at their current subscription plan’s rate for a period of one year.
Active Student limits on subscription plans: An "Active Student" is a Student in a User's Program who has logged into the Program in the past 30 days. Heights does not set a hard limit on the number of active students that are allowed on our paid subscription plans. The following overages are allowed:
An overage of 5% or more above the plan limit for 2 consecutive months will be required to upgrade.
Heights may, but is not obligated to, provide discounts, including but not limited to an initial thirty day free trial offer for the use of our Service. The discounts provided will be made according to the information published on our Site, and if any information is conflicting, the terms most beneficial to Heights shall take effect. Discounts may not be applied to past payments.
Heights may refuse to provide such discounts for any reason including, but not limited to, fraud, unauthorized accounts (such as multiple accounts being used to take advantage of a one-time offer repeatedly), mistake on the part of our publication of information, actual or expected financial hardship, sale of all or part of our business, or any other reason.
Where a User provides payment to Heights, and that amount of money is subsequently taken from Heights due to a chargeback or similar reversal, Heights shall be entitled to recover that amount from the User as liquidated damages, as well as our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and disbursements, and/or collection agency fees required to collect these liquidated damages.
Please note that this restriction on chargebacks is designed to prevent fraud and keep our costs low, which allows us to offer lower prices for our Service. Users may of course bring disputes against us in accordance with the “Forum of Dispute” provisions found further below.
Because Heights may be used with a mobile device, certain third party SMS charges, data charges, and other fees may be applied in relation to your use of our Service. You agree that you are responsible for tracking and paying these charges, and that Heights shall not be liable to you for such charges.
Heights is provided as licensed software to you. When you provide the proper payment to us or otherwise meet the requirements to use our App (such as by being eligible for a trial offer), you are authorized to use one account for our software at the price given. You may not distribute this software, copy it, reverse engineer it, or otherwise tamper with it or reproduce it. Heights reserves the right to revoke our license for our App’s use at any time.
At time, Heights may have server downtime or other Service outages for reasons including, but not limited to, server maintenance, legal compliance, security issues, or other business operations. You agree that we are not liable for any losses incurred by you as a result of such downtime, and that you should have a backup plan in place if you are relying on our Service for any purpose which could cause a loss to you if our Service became unavailable.
Heights expended much effort on developing its App and ensuring that it is unique from other Apps. Copying our App or any portion thereof could, in addition to being prohibited generally by intellectual property law, harm our business. You agree not to copy, distribute, display, disseminate, or otherwise reproduce any of the information on the Site, including our App, without receiving our prior written permission.
Heights must be assured that it has the right to use the content that is uploaded using its App. Such content may include, but is not limited to, arrangements of data by Users in which a copyright subsides. Whenever submitting content to us through our App, you agree that you are granting us a non-exclusive, universal, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable, commercial and non-commercial right to use the content that you submit to us for the purpose of providing you with our Service. You warrant to us that you have the right to grant us this right over the content, and that you will indemnify us for any loss resulting from a breach of this warranty and defend us against claims regarding the same.
“HEIGHTS”, “Heights Platform”, the Heights Platform logo icon, “Velora,” “Velora Studios,” and the Velora Studios icon are registered trademarks used by us, Velora Studios, LLC, to uniquely identify our Site, Service, and business. Additionally, the service mark “Climb Above” is an unregistered trademark protected generally by the provisions of the Lanham Act, as well as various status prohibiting unfair competition and the common law tort of passing off. You agree not to use our marks anywhere without our prior written consent. Additionally, you agree not to use our trade dress, or copy the look and feel of our Site, App, or their design, without our prior written consent. You agree that this paragraph goes beyond the governing law on intellectual property law, and includes prohibitions on any competition that violates the provisions of this paragraph, including starting your own App or other directly or indirectly competing business.
We may revoke our consent for your use of our intellectual property, or any other permission granted to you under this Agreement, at any time. You agree that if we so request, you must take immediate action to remove any usage of our intellectual property that you may have engaged in, even if it would cause a loss to you.
Users must not post any information that infringes on anyone’s copyright. We take copyright infringement very seriously, and we have registered a Copyright Agent with the United States Copyright Office, which limits our liability under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If you believe that your copyright has been infringed, please send us a message which contains:
You must sign this notification and send it to our Copyright Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we request notification by e-mail, an electronic signature is acceptable.
Although U.S. law does not provide for a similar procedure for trademark infringement, we recommend that you send us similar information to that above in regards to any allegation of trademark infringement, and we will address it as soon as practicable.
WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OF OUR SERVICE OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE RELEASING US FROM ANY LIABILITY THAT WE MAY OTHERWISE HAVE TO YOU IN RELATION TO OR ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT OR OUR SERVICES, FOR REASONS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FAILURE OF OUR SERVICE, NEGLIGENCE, OR ANY OTHER TORT. TO THE EXTENT THAT APPLICABLE LAW RESTRICTS THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY, YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY LIABLE TO YOU FOR THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF DAMAGES THAT THE LAW RESTRICTS OUR LIABILITY TO, IF SUCH A MINIMUM EXISTS.
YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY THIRD PARTIES WHO MAY USE OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PEOPLE WHO COMMIT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, DEFAMATION, TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH ECONOMIC RELATIONS, OR ANY OTHER ACTIONABLE CONDUCT TOWARDS YOU.
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MISUSE OF OUR APP, AND YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE SUITABILITY OF OUR APP AS IT APPLIES TO YOU.
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSSES WHICH RESULT FROM SERVER DOWNTIME OR OTHER TECHNICAL ISSUES.
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE ON THE PART OF OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR TO PROCESS YOUR PAYMENTS PROPERLY, AND YOU SHOULD CONTACT THEM AND/OR YOUR CARD COMPANY DIRECTLY TO SOLVE ANY PAYMENT ISSUES WHICH YOU MAY HAVE.
WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY FAILURE OF THE GOODS OR SERVICES OF OUR COMPANY OR A THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING ANY FAILURES OR DISRUPTIONS, UNTIMELY DELIVERY, SCHEDULED OR UNSCHEDULED, INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL, ON OUR WEBSITE WHICH PREVENT ACCESS TO OUR WEBSITE TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY.
THE PROVISION OF OUR SERVICE TO YOU IS CONTINGENT ON YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THIS AND ALL OTHER SECTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. NOTHING IN THE PROVISIONS OF THIS “REPRESENTATIONS & WARRANTIES” SECTION SHALL BE CONSTRUED TO LIMIT THE GENERALITY OF THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THIS SECTION.
For Jurisdictions that do not allow us to limit our liability: Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the above then our liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, we do not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.
IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A SPECIFIC STATEMENT REGARDING RELEASE THEN THE FOLLOWING APPLIES. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE AFOREMENTIONED RELEASE.
You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless for any claims by you or any third party which may arise from or relate to this Agreement or the provision of our service to you, including any damages caused by your use of our website or acceptance of the offers contained on it. You also agree that you have a duty to defend us against such claims and we may require you to pay for an attorney(s) of our choice in such cases. You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements. In the event of a claim such as one described in this paragraph, we may elect to settle with the party/parties making the claim, and you shall be liable for the damages as though we had proceeded with a trial.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of Texas. The offer and acceptance of this contract are deemed to have occurred in the State of Texas.
You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Texas. Specifically, where the subject matter of a dispute is eligible for it, you agree that any disputes shall be head solely within the lowest court of competent jurisdiction having the authority to hear civil matters in the State of Texas (“Small Claims Court”).
If a dispute claims multiple claims and one or more of those claims would be eligible to be heard by the Small Claims Court, you agree not to bring the other claims against us and to instead proceed within the Small Claims Court.
If you would be entitled in a dispute to an amount exceeding the monetary jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, you agree to waive your right to collect any damages in excess of the monetary jurisdiction and instead still bring your claim within the Small Claims Court.
You agree that if a dispute is eligible to be heard in Small Claims Court but you would be entitled to an additional or alternative remedy in a higher court, such as injunctive relief, you will waive your right to that remedy and still bring the dispute within the Small Claims Court.
If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so.
You agree that the unsuccessful party in any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be responsible for the reimbursement of the successful party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements.
If for any reason the provisions in this section as to the proper forum of dispute are found to be unenforceable and another state may have jurisdiction over such disputes, you agree that this section shall apply as analogously as possible in that other state, including but not limited to the requirement that the dispute be brought in that state’s small claims court.
You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labor shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, postal disruption, communication disruption, unavailability of payment processors, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.
In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.
If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, Heights shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
Heights reserves all rights afforded to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or the any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.

Our liability for refunding you, if you have paid anything to us, will be limited to the amount you paid for goods or services which have not yet been and will not be delivered, except in cases where the termination or cancellation was due to your breach of this Agreement, in which case you agree that we are not required to provide any refund or other compensation whatsoever.
You may not assign your rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party without our prior written consent. We may assign our rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party at our discretion.

As a general matter, You can browse the Website without submitting Your Personal Data to Us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which You may supply Us with Your Personal Data.

In addition to the specific purposes for which We may process Your Personal Data set out in this clause, We may also process any of Your Personal Data where such processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which We are subject, or in order to protect Your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls.
We use HTTPS
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data between your computer and class.synchronizedgroup.com. The use of HTTPS makes sure your communication with us is:
Encrypted — The data you exchange with us is secure from eavesdroppers. That means that when you are browsing class.synchronizedgroup.com, nobody can track your activities across multiple pages, or steal the data exchange between your computer and class.synchronizedgroup.com.
Integral — The use of HTTPS preserves the integrity of data. Your data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer.
Authenticated — HTTPS protocol authenticates your communication with us. This ensures that you are always communicating with our servers.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information You transmit to Us or store on the Website, and You do so at Your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of Our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If You believe Your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact Us at email@example.com.
If We learn of a security systems breach, then We attempt to notify You electronically so that You can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice through the Website if a security breach occurs.

Those circumstances are: You contest the accuracy of the Personal Data; processing is unlawful but You oppose erasure; We no longer need the Personal Data for the purposes of Our processing, but You require Personal Data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and You have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.

Right to Withdraw Consent. To the extent that the legal basis for Our processing of Your Personal Data is consent, You have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
You may exercise any of Your rights in relation to Your Personal Data through written notice to Us. See Our Contact Details at the end of this Policy.
