By participating in a Session (or Sessions), you have the opportunity to complete a Pre-Questionnaire and a Post-Questionnaire for the purposes of research to be reported in aggregate form on AfterlifeData.com and in other places (e.g.: papers, reports, blogs, conferences, to other researchers, etc.).
You agree that you will attend Sessions from a location that is quiet and without distraction to yourself or others during the Session. You will not use any profane, abusive or derogatory language during the session or in any communication with us or others. Removal from a Session is at the sole discretion of QVllc and you will not be entitled to any refund or additional Sessions if you are removed from a Session.
Your right to Session(s) attendance is conditional upon QVllc's receipt of payment. If payment cannot be charged to the credit card used for payment or if a charge is refunded for any reason, including chargeback, we reserve the right to immediately and without notice, either suspend or terminate your Session and/or Account access. You are required to pay any amounts still owed to us at the time your Session and Account access is suspended or terminated.
We reserve the right to change the amount of, or basis for determining, any fees, and to institute new fees, effective upon prior notice to you. Similarly, we reserve the right to modify any other terms of participation in any Session (for example, the duration of the Session or features offered to participants), upon prior notice to you. We may give notices to you by means of a general notice on the Site, in your Account, on any and all pages of the Site or by e-mail to the e-mail address provided by you or by the person who purchased your Session.
You may cancel your Session participation at any time after your initial registration up to 72 hours in advance of the Session Start Time for which you are scheduled, unless the Session you have selected specifically does not permit cancellation within a specified time period. This would apply to any Sessions that are purchased within 72 hours of their scheduled time. To cancel your participation in a Session prior to 72 hours before the Session's scheduled Start Time, you must contact us.

You also may not "stalk" other users of the Site or participants in the Sessions.
14.3. NO SELF PROMOTION
There is zero tolerance for self-promotion of skills or services through the Site. Self-promotion comments could result in an automatic ban from the Site or a Session.
Impersonation of any contributor, person or entity, or misrepresentation of one's affiliation with any contributor, person, or entity is strictly prohibited. In addition, users may not forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any User Content transmitted through the Site or in Sessions.
14.5. STAY ON TOPIC
While comments can tend to drift naturally from the original topic, we ask that you please try to stay relevant to the topic at hand.
14.6. OPINIONS VS. FACTS
Everyone has their own opinions and we encourage you to share them at appropriate times in order to inspire discussion and further everyone's knowledge and experience. While sharing opinions is encouraged, keep in mind that others may disagree and no one's opinion is fact. If you would like to present something as fact, please be prepared to cite references.
14.7. USE THE WORKS OF OTHERS
Spamming the Site is strictly prohibited. Spamming includes uploading, posting, emailing or otherwise transmitting any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.
14.9. DISRUPTION OF OTHERS
You may not upload, post, email or otherwise transmit any material that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, emulate, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment. In addition, you may not disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, cause a screen to "scroll" faster than other users of the Site are able to type, or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users' ability to engage in real time exchanges. You may not interfere with or disrupt the Site or servers or networks connected to the Site, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to the Site.
14.10. OTHER USER'S PERSONAL DATA
You may not collect or store personal data about other Users of the Site.
14.11. REVOCATION OF ACCOUNT ACCESS OR SESSION PARTICIPATION
The Site offers a unique experience to access and share experiences via Sessions with a medium. Breaking of any of these rules can result in your Account or Session access being revoked without warning. In extreme cases, we retain the right to ban an individual's Site use permanently. If your access is revoked, QVllc will not refund any part of your Session fees or any other fees paid to date. QVllc also retains the right to delete any information or content that it deems inappropriate or to be breaking any of the above rules.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Site users, either during Sessions or otherwise.

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and require the Site users do the same. If you believe that your proprietary work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please forward the following information to us via our contact page, designated as such pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(2), named below:
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any QVllc Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by QVllc or through AfterlifeData.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Business Filings Incorporated, 108 West 13th Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will not reimburse any fees for claims. Likewise, QVllc will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
