Dispute Resolution

You understand and agree now that the only remedy that can be awarded to you through arbitration is a full refund of your payment made to date. No award of consequential or of any other damages may be granted to you.

By signing up/enrolling/purchasing any of our programs, products and services you are agreeing to a modification of the statute of limitations such that any arbitration must be commenced within one (1) year of the date of the act, omission, or other conduct complained of as submitted by you in e-mail, or shall otherwise be forfeited forever.  You also agree that should arbitration take place, it will be held in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and the prevailing party shall be entitled to all reasonable attorney’s fees and costs necessary to enforce the Agreement.

In the event of a dispute between us, you agree to not engage in any conduct or communications, public or private, designed to disparage us, YENC, or any of our programs, products or services. Where requested by law or arbitration, of course, you are not prohibited from sharing your thoughts and opinions as a part of the legal process.

2. Waiver. No waiver of any provision herein shall be valid unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of both you and YENC. YENC’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms or any right shall not be construed as a waiver of any such provision or right.

3. Severability. If any provision of these Terms is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be automatically reformed and construed so as to be valid, operative and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law or equity while preserving its original intent.
