Dispute Resolution. Subject only to Section 13, below, all disputes between the Parties arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any breach thereof will be determined and settled by binding arbitration, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”). The arbitration will not be combined with any other proceeding or arbitration against one of the Parties. The place of any such arbitration shall be in or near  New York County, New York. Each party will designate one arbitrator and the two designated arbitrators will select a third arbitrator to serve as the chair of the arbitration panel. If the two arbitrators cannot agree on the third arbitrator, then the AAA will appoint the third arbitrator. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrators will issue their decision within one hundred twenty (120) days from the date the third arbitrator is selected. The arbitrators may extend this time limit for an additional thirty (30) days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The arbitrators’ decision and award will be in writing and will include a statement setting forth the reasons for the disposition of any claim.  A dissenting decision (if any) will also be set forth in writing. The award rendered by the arbitrators will be final and binding on the Parties, and judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration will be governed by and construed in accordance with laws of the State of New York without reference to conflict of laws provisions.

Subject only to Section 13, below, all disputes between the Parties arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any breach thereof will be determined and settled by binding arbitration, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), solely and exclusively between the Parties (and no other parties, including, without limitation, any of Company’s officers, directors, members, managers, employees, volunteers, agents, or representatives, none of whom shall be named or joined as a party to any arbitration or other legal proceeding arising under this Agreement).

 

 Governing Law. For claims not subject to the Dispute Resolution section above, this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without reference to its conflict of law principles and all such disputes shall be resolved exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in New York County, New York, to which the Parties irrevocably consent and waive all jurisdictional, venue, and inconvenient forum objections. 

 

Class Waiver. To the extent applicable law permits, any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or the AAA Rules, disputes regarding the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this class waiver may be resolved only by a court and not by an arbitrator. If this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither party is entitled to arbitration.

No Jury Trial. If for any reason a claim or dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, each party knowingly and irrevocably waives any right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated between the Parties.

Assignment. This Agreement and the Client’s participation in the Program and receipt of the Services shall not be transferred, delegated, or assigned, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly by operation of law or otherwise, to any third party, by Client without the express written consent of Company, which may be withheld in Company’s sole discretion. Any purported assignment or transfer not in compliance hereof shall be deemed void and of no force and effect.  Company may assign, transfer, delegate, or sublicense its rights and/or subcontract its obligations under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the performance of the Services, at any time in its sole discretion without the prior written consent of Client.

  • Induce or attempt to induce any customers, or any platforms, sellers, vendors, suppliers, licensees, and other persons or companies with whom Company does business (collectively, the “Customers”) to cease doing business with Company, in any way interfere with Company relationships with its Customers, or solicit any Customers for the business or services offered by Company;

  • Each party has participated in negotiating and drafting this Agreement, such that if any ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if the Parties had drafted it jointly, as opposed to being construed against a party by reason of the rule of construction that a document is to be strictly construed against the party on whose behalf of the document was prepared. 

  • This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, all of which taken together will constitute one single agreement between the Parties. The Parties expressly agree that with respect to this Agreement, an electronic signature or executed document which has been formatted as a Portable Document Format (PDF) and electronically exchanged shall be binding upon the Parties.

Exhibit B – Code of Conduct

 

Company’s Programs are intended to be safe and accepting spaces for everyone. Please read the Program Code of Conduct below:

 

Professional Training Mission Statement

Through the Victor + Valor™ professional training series, our goal is to birth new careers in fields that are sought after in today's marketplace as well as in the future. Our 8-20 week courses are designed to give you the foundational knowledge, real-world experience, and creative thinking perspective needed to succeed.

 

Internal and External Practices

  • Be patient and courteous.

 

  • Be inclusive. We welcome and support people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, color, immigration status, sex, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

 

  • Be considerate. We all depend on each other to produce the best work we can. Your decisions will affect others, and you should take those consequences into account when making decisions.

 

  • Be professional. Show up on time to all meetings/classes and fully prepared with regards to a quite work environment, a strong internet signal, as well as prepared for the content to be covered. Dress in a business casual/professional manner while attending meetings/classes.

 

  • Be respectful. We won't all agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for disrespectful behavior. We will all experience frustration from time to time, but we cannot allow that frustration to become personal attacks. An environment where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive or creative one.

 

  • Our differences can be our strengths. We can find strength in diversity. Different people have different perspectives on issues, and that can be valuable for solving problems or generating new ideas. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. Don’t forget that we all make mistakes, and blaming each other doesn’t get us anywhere. Instead, focus on resolving issues and learning from mistakes.

 

  • Be responsible. As part of your course, you will receive hardware (i.e., computers) and access to the software. You are fully responsible to protect all passwords, devices, etc. from harm. These items are meant solely for your professional training and career use. We are not responsible for your hardware items breaking or being damaged during or after your professional training. And in turn, will not be replacing or repairing them. If it is found out that you have shared software passwords with others or used said software outside of the professional training/ your career - you will lose all access to the software and be expelled from the course as well as the  Victor + Valor community. 


 

Unacceptable Behavior 

  • Choose your words carefully. Always conduct yourself professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down others. Harassment and exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. This includes but is not limited to: threats of violence, discriminatory jokes and language, sharing sexually explicit or violent material via electronic devices or other means, personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms, unwelcome sexual attention, and advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior is not allowed. 

 

  • Do not harass others. In general, if someone asks you to stop something, then stop. When we disagree, try to understand why. Differences of opinion and disagreements are mostly unavoidable. What is important is that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively.

 

  • We have a Zero tolerance policy for the following behaviors: harassment, abuse or assault, bullying, intoxication, illegal activity, discrimination, or plagiarism.

 

Grading and Receiving Certificates

Our trainings are designed to be intensive. Besides a few quizzes to show an understanding of the basic information, our courses are graded during jury classes. Jury classes are where students present their work to their fellow students, “client,” and a jury of experts. This model is designed to test the student's ability to properly articulate their ideas and solution to their case study client’s problem and create all necessary visuals to express their thought process. Current performance criteria and the current grading scaled can be found at https://victorvalor.org/grading-ruberic

 

If you fail to meet the grading rubric standards you will not receive a certificate and are ineligible to receive further professional training from Victor + Valor. 

 

Hold Policy

 A “hold” is a permitted suspension of the Student’s participation in the program without penalty. The Student may request a hold till the next time the course is offered and holds will only be granted for those with extenuating circumstances, such as military deployment or documented medical concerns. The hold must be taken all at once. If the Student is placed on hold and is unable to make the next time the course is offered, they shall be dropped from the program.

 

Job Placement / Salary

Company does not guarantee job placement to graduates upon completion and does not guarantee a salary or salary range to graduates. The Student acknowledges and agrees that no employee of Company has guaranteed that student will earn a specific salary or salary range upon completion. 

 

Notice Concerning Non-Transferability

Training are non-credit bearing and non-transferable to other institutions. Training completed at Company will not be accepted towards credit by other institutions. 

 

Requirements For Certification and Licensing

The student understands that upon completion, they may be required to obtain licensure or certification on their own. No Company employee has guaranteed their eligibility for any certification or licensure. 


 

Additional Training Disclosure

Student understands that some jobs may require additional training, even after completion of training. Certain cities, counties, states and employers may have specific regulations for employment including a minimum number of training hours and successful completion of a written and or practical exam. I understand that this might impact the availability of employment positions.

 

Point of Contact

When dealing with questions regarding your course material, course expectations etc., we request that you contact your course instructor directly via Slack. 

 

When dealing with any issue that can not be amicably resolved between you and a fellow student, member, client, staffer, etc. we ask that you contact our professional team via the form found at https://victorvalor.org/concern 


 

By adopting this Code of Conduct, participants commit themselves to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of participating in this group. Participants who do not follow the Code of Conduct may have their Program access revoked at any time.

 

This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.

 

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting our team at https://victorvalor.org/concern 

 

All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed by Company as necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. Participants are obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the report of an incident.
