You understand and agree that you are responsible for obtaining access to this service and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service. If you think it’s weird that we have to put this statement here in writing, we agree with you but it wouldn’t be here if someone hadn’t already tried to make that argument.
Your Responsibilities and Registration Obligations
You understand and agree that if you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if Rune.Academy has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Rune.Academy and its staff have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the service (or any portion thereof).
Rune.Academy is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly children. For this reason, children under the age of 13 are not allowed to access the service without direct parental supervision.
You understand that Rune.Academy and certain applications and components of the service collect information about your activity, or activity on devices associated with you, on our website via tracking technologies such as cookies and/or web beacons in order, but not limited, to promote a better user experience, help deliver relevant content, analyze traffic to our service and/or those of third parties, monitor and evaluate the use and operation of our service, and uphold the functionality of the service. We may associate this tracking data with your registered account, in which case we will treat it as personal information.

You understand that advertisers and third parties may also collect information about your activity on our sites and applications, on devices associated with you, and on third-party sites and applications using tracking technologies.

You understand that you can choose not to receive targeted advertising from many ad networks, data exchanges, marketing analytics and other service providers. You understand that you can also choose to control targeted advertising you receive within applications by using your mobile device settings (for example, by resetting your device’s advertising identifier and/or opting out of interest-based ads).
You understand that the Rune.Academy website also collects personal information in forms that are volunteered by the user, such as, but not limited to, site registration and/or survey information. In accordance with Federal Law, the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), we cannot collect information from anyone under the age of 13. Therefore, to ensure that no information is directly collected from a minor under the age of 13, Rune.Academy does not allow children under the age of 13 to register for services of any kind without the explicit consent and supervision of a parent or guardian upon registration and every subsequent login to the service. For more information about COPPA and general tips about protecting children’s safety and privacy online, please visit OnGuard Online.

You understand that some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. You understand and agree that some of the above limitations and sections may not apply to you.
You understand and agree that any dispute between you and Rune.Academy must first be resolved by individual arbitration. Therefore, you and Rune.Academy creators and staff agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and Rune.Academy or its affiliates, except disputes relating to the enforcement of Rune.Academy, its creators, its staff, or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights.
You understand and agree that “dispute” includes any dispute, action or other controversies between you and us concerning the Rune.Academy services or these terms, bearing in mind the prior statements regarding content and warranties or lack thereof, explicit or implied, found in prior sections of this Terms of Service.
You understand and agree that you and Rune.Academy both empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforce-ability of these terms or formation of this contract. You understand and agree that this includes the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all, or any part, of these terms are void or voidable.
You understand and agree that in the event of a dispute, you must send Rune.Academy a notice of the dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested. You understand and agree that you must send any notice of dispute directly to Rune.Academy creators and/or staff via verifiable and traceable, electronic means of contact that are timestamped and archival, such as, but not limited to, an email correspondence.
You understand and agree that you and Rune.Academy will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal, written, electronic, traceable, timestamped, and archival negotiation within a period of 1 year from the date the notice of dispute is sent, to allow for ample time and ability for the small number of Rune.Academy creators and staff to respond and gather information should the situation require it. Otherwise, Rune.Academy staff will work on getting to all mail, including requests, inquiries, and other communications, as quickly as they can and on a first come, first serve basis. After 1 year, you or we may commence arbitration. You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, as you are ending the informal negotiation period.
You understand and agree that these Terms of Service and any dispute arising out of your use of this website, products, or services provided, that are taken to small claims court after the informal negotiation period will be governed by and construed in accordance with local laws applicable to Rune.Academy creators and staff home country, state, and anything that is otherwise known as their place of residence, notwithstanding any differences between the said applicable legislation and legislation in force at your location. By registering for a user account on this website, or by using this website and the services it provides, you accept that jurisdiction is granted to the courts having jurisdiction over the site creator’s domicile, and that any disputes will be heard by the said courts.
You understand and agree that if you and Rune.Academy and its affiliates do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute will be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. You understand and agree that you are giving up the right to litigate a dispute in court before a judge or jury. Arbitration will be administered by licensed and registered professionals at the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. For more information, visit www.adr.org. Arbitration will be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
You understand and explicitly agree that proceedings to resolve or litigate a dispute in any form will be conducted on an individual-only basis. Neither you nor Rune.Academy will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
You understand and agree that the Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Rune.Academy and govern your use of the service, superseding any prior agreements between you and all creators. staff, and affiliates of Rune.Academy. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software.
You understand and agree that the Terms of Service and the relationship between you and Rune.Academy shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, the state in which Rune.Academy creators currently reside, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Rune.Academy both understand and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts and arbitrators located within the county of Nassau, New York.
You understand and agree that the failure of Rune.Academy and its creators, staff, and/or affiliates to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Service does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, and all terms and rights will remain in full force and effect. If any provision of the Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction, or by an arbitrator, to be invalid, the said provision will be interpreted to reflect the original intentions of the parties in accordance with applicable law, and the remainder of these Terms of Service will remain in full force and effect.
You understand and agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim, dispute, or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Rune.Academy service or the Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose and was sent via an informal, written, electronic, traceable, timestamped, and archival form of contact or be forever barred. Rune.Academy creators, staff, and affiliates will in this event be from here on out relieved of any further obligation.
You understand and agree that any and all personal, political, and religious opinions expressed by Rune.Academy creators, staff, and affiliates, as well as all users using the service, are solely those of the author(s) and do not reflect the views and opinions of Rune.Academy as a whole.
