TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated 13th January 2020
1. AGREEMENT TO TERMS
These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement made between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“you”) and Prat City LLC, doing business as Best Online Traffic School (“Best Online Traffic School”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), concerning your access to and use of the https://www.bestonlinetrafficschool.co website as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto (collectively, the “Site”). You agree that by accessing the Site, you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by all of these Terms of Service. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, THEN YOU ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM USING THE SITE AND YOU MUST DISCONTINUE USE IMMEDIATELY.
Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on the Site from time to time are hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms of Service at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms of Service, via e-mail, or by another appropriate means, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. It is your responsibility to periodically review these Terms of Service to stay informed of updates. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the changes in any revised Terms of Service by your continued use of the Site after the date such revised Terms of Service are posted. We reserve any rights not expressly granted by these Terms.
The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
2. The Services
Best Online Traffic School offers the following services (collectively, the “Services”) according to these terms and conditions:
a. Online Traffic Services
We charge for the online traffic course (the “Course”). You are required to establish an account on the Site and provide the information required for registration for the Course. In order to receive a Course completion certificate, you are required to complete the payment online. Within 12 hours of receiving payment, we will transmit your Course completion certificate to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (“DMV”). You will also be able to download a copy of the Course completion certificate for your records.
If the course is taken for traffic ticket dismissal purposes, although we will transmit the Course Completion certificate to the DMV, you are solely responsible to contact the court of law to ensure their case has been dismissed and closed by the court. You must complete your course within 3 months (90 days) from the date of your registration. Failure to complete your course within this period of time will result in the de-activation of your account and we will not offer a refund. We are not responsible for lost progress due to deactivation. If you hold a commercial license, it is your responsibility to contact the DMV and Court to ensure your driving records have been cleared. Course content is limited to traffic violator curriculum approved by the DMV. Instructor training, business regulatory standards, and Vehicle Code requirements of traffic violator schools are the same as the training, standards, and Vehicle Code requirements of licensed driving schools and the Course is not a licensed driving school.
If you require us to re-transmit the Course Completion certificate to the DMV due to errors in the information provided, ineligibility or pending balance with the court, we reserve the right to charge you a fee.
b. Case Follow-up and Notice Service
If you take the Course for traffic ticket dismissal purposes, we offer an optional service that can help you monitor your case’s status with California courts and the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Should you use this service, you agree to our submitting and/or obtaining information as relevant and required to provide this service to you. Should you withdraw your consent for performing this service to you for any reason, we will not issue a refund or reimbursement unless, either partial or complete, unless it is made pursuant to Section 4(b) above, even if you are not informed of the final status of your ticket or citation.
c. Physical Certificate of Completion
If you take the Course for traffic ticket dismissal purposes, you may request from us a physical notice certifying that you have completed the Course for an optional fee. This is in addition to any digital certification or notices that we normally provide in the provision of the Course as described above. By purchasing a physical certificate of completion, you grant us the right to mail a physical certificate to an address that you provide, and agree not to hold us liable or accountable for any lost or intercepted mail caused by circumstances outside of our control that results in a failure for you to receive the certificate or disclosure of the certificate’s contents to an unintended party.
d. Insurance or Other Service Provider Offers
After you register for the Site and in the provision of our Services, we might send you registration update reminders as well as other emails related to your course and examinations. We may try to contact you if incorrect information is provided in the registration process. However, we are not required under these Terms to contact you to obtain corrected information. We are not responsible for the delays caused by user submitting incorrect information while registering for the Course.
The Services are only available to individuals who can provide proof of a Driver’s License issued by the relevant authorities or a U.S. state or Canadian province or territory; you will not be allowed to access our services without providing one of these.
You agree to pay us for the provision of any of the Services, subject to the following conditions.
We may change our fee schedule at any time and the new fee schedule shall be enforced immediately upon publication of the same on the Site or upon notice to you via email.
If you are unsatisfied with your purchase from Prat for any reason, you have seven (7) days from the date of payment to request a refund.
Please direct any billing questions to us through the “Contact Us” form linked to on the Site’s webpages.

Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) any violation of any scraping provision, above, is per se an unauthorized access within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. § 1030 (an “Access Violation”) and other similar federal and state laws; (b) we are not obligated to provide, and will not provide, any notice or period in which to cure any Access Violation breach of this Agreement; (c) any Access Violation shall obligate you to pay us liquidated damages of five thousand dollars ($5,000); (d) you acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding any other provision herein, any Access Violation would cause irreparable harm for which damages are an inadequate remedy, and that therefore we shall be entitled, in the event of any Access Violation, to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief, without bond, in addition to all other remedies available at law; and (e) the five thousand dollar ($5,000) loss requirement of 18 U.S.C. § 1030 shall be waived for the purpose of any civil action we elect to bring against you.

13. MODIFICATIONS AND INTERRUPTIONS
We reserve the right to change, modify, or remove the contents of the Site at any time or for any reason at our sole discretion without notice. However, we have no obligation to update any information on our Site other than what is required under law in the provision of our Services. We also reserve the right to modify or discontinue all or part of the Site without notice at any time. We will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuance of the Site.
We cannot guarantee the Site will be available at all times.

14. GOVERNING LAW
These Terms of Service and your use of the Site are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law principles.
15. DISPUTE RESOLUTION– PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION SECTION BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU HAVE IN ANY MANNER VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, WE MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE RELIEF IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Service. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Services or these Terms of Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
Notwithstanding any other section of these Terms, if the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
There may be information on the Site that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions, including descriptions, pricing, availability, and various other information. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions and to change or update the information on the Site at any time, without prior notice.
