Online Session Agreement

This Agreement is made between the online session participant (“Client”), and David Loughry (“Consultant”), with a principal place of business at 908 S. Hobart Blvd., #105, Los Angeles, CA 90006 USA.

  1. Services

    Session Types
    Consultant agrees to perform and supply the services described below:
    • Online workshops, seminars, webinars, classes, live events, consultations or other kinds of online sessions, as described in their respective marketing media or as agreed to in pre-session discussions. Any of these types will be called "sessions" for the purposes of this agreement.
    • Online sessions may be presented in one of three ways: 1) publicly broadcast via the Internet ("public") sessions; 2) non-public sessions with open registration ("open"), meaning anyone may sign up; 3) custom sessions ("custom") arranged between the Client and Consultant.

    Participation
    For the purposes of this agreement, participation may range from active engagement to passive viewing, and any person so participating is considered a "participant" and a Client. Some sessions may be viewed later as recordings, and this is also considered participation.

    Extending the Session
    Session participants may extend the online session, providing Consultant has no schedule conflicts, as long as participants agree to adjust their proxri as appropriate (see Section 3 below).

    Website Membership
    For proxri (see Section 3 below) totaling USD $5.00 or more per participant, including before-, during- and/or after-session proxri, session includes a one-year membership to the ProxThink.com website, if the session participant does not already have a membership. If the online session occurs within 30 days of the expiration of an existing membership, the membership will be extended for another year. For more details about membership, see: http://proxthink.com/join/index.php.

    Recordings of Public Sessions
    Recordings of public sessions (in whole or in part via video and/or audio) will generally be available. However, Consultant reserves the right to not provide the recordings. See the Recording and Distribution section below for additional details.

    Recordings of Open Sessions
    Recordings of open sessions (in whole or in part via video and/or audio) will not always be available to the session participants. Such recordings may be made available to the session participants only if all session participants agree to allow it (based on privacy concerns related to session collaboration). See the Recording and Distribution section below for additional details.

    Recordings of Custom Sessions
    For groups or individuals who schedule custom sessions, a recording (everything seen on-screen and heard during the session) can be provided if requested prior to the session. An additional fee may apply. See the Recording and Distribution section below for additional details.

    Copies of Custom Session Work or Files
    If needed for groups or individuals who schedule custom sessions, copies of work or files such as text documents or mind maps produced during collaboration can be provided after the session, to be sent via the Internet within three business days.
  2. Proxri Deal

    The Proxri Deal is part of this agreement. Proxri (pronounced prox’ree) is short for one or more ProxRewards, which are rewards made with the proximity in mind. Here's the essence of our Proxri Deal: As you find our relationship rewarding, proxri with the proximity in mind.

    Proxri in practice are sort of like the give and take of a neighborhood, relationship, friendship or perhaps being a considerate traveler. You may want the neighborhood, relationship, friendship or location you're visiting to survive, thrive, and take care of you as you take care of it. You may also want it to persist, adapt and change as needed, which is how proximities stay sustainable and life stays interesting. For more about the process of proxri, go to http://proxthink.com/brief/intro-proxri.php.

    How do you, as a Client, proxri the Consultant? Basically, you consider the proximity, including your benefits from the session, your circumstances, the Consultant's circumstances, and some wider context, and then proxri as appropriate. The full Proxri Deal and more details can be found at: http://proxthink.com/members/about/proxri-deal.php.
  3. Proxri Before and After Session

    Before-Session Proxri — In consideration for the services to be performed for Client, and to help with the basic costs of the session, Consultant suggests some financial proxri via PayPal prior to the session. Before-session proxri may be made via the following pages:
    Let's ProxThink Sessions
    http://lets.proxthink.com/proxri
    Other Sessions
    http://proxthink.com/members/about/proxri-deal.php

    After-Session Proxri — After a session, Client is encouraged to proxri the Consultant as part of our Proxri Deal (see Section 2 above). To see Consultant’s ProxMonitor, which can be one part of determining Client’s proxri, go to http://proxthink.com/members/about/proxmon-site.php. When ready to proxri, links and forms can be found on many pages of the ProxThink.com website, as well as the following pages:
    Let's ProxThink Sessions

    Other Sessions
    http://proxthink.com/members/about/proxri-deal.php
  4. Registration

    Public Sessions via Google+ Hangouts On Air — Registration is generally not required for public sessions. However, there may be the possibility for people to join a simultaneous session hosted by AnyMeeting.com that is part of the public session. If this is the case, participants will be asked to provide at least a name and email address. Sometimes, more registration information may be requested or required.

    Open (But Not Publicly Broadcast) Sessions via Google+ Hangouts — To register, Clients can respond to a publicized event invitation on the ProxThink Google+ page. If possible, Clients should use the same email as used for any before-session proxri (see Section 3 above). However, if different email addresses are used for registation and before-session proxri, please let Consultant know so any before-session proxri with a different email via PayPal can be associated with the registration email.

    Open Sessions via AnyMeeting.com — It is best to first complete the before-session proxri (see Section 3 above). Clients can then complete their registration by signing up at anymeeting.com/proxthink, using the same email address they used on PayPal. It is also possible to first sign up at anymeeting.com/proxthink, and if so it's helpful if the email address used for the before-session proxri on PayPal is the same email as the registration email. However, if Client uses a different email address, please let Consultant know so any proxri with a different email via PayPal can be associated with the registration email.

    Custom Sessions — Clients who have scheduled a custom session can coordinate with Consultant regarding before-session proxri and to complete their registration.
  5. Collaboration Proxri

    Participants agree they are owed no compensation for their participation at the time of the session or at any point in the future (see the Responsibility of Content Contributors section in the ProxThink Terms of Use). However, in accordance with the ProxThink Collaboration Deal, it is possible that session participants may receive proxri from the Consultant, or from other session participants, or from the public at large, or from some combination of these. It is impossible to say how likely this might be, and it may or may not be common for sessions. To facilitate proxri, participants are encouraged to use their real names if possible and provide ways for people to find and/or contact them, generally via search and/or directly as provided for in ways that may be specific to each session. However, such disclosure of their real names and any contact information by participants is subject to the ProxThink Terms of Use, including but not limited to the sections titled Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability, General Representation and Warranty, and Indemnification. The Collaboration Deal can be found at: http://proxthink.com/members/about/collaboration-deal.php.
  6. Recording and Distribution

    Reminder of Three Terms — As mentioned in the Services section above, online sessions may be presented in one of three ways: 1) publicly broadcast via the Internet ("public") sessions; 2) non-public sessions with open registration ("open"), meaning anyone may sign up; 3) custom sessions ("custom") arranged between the Client and Consultant.

    Public Sessions — Many public sessions may be recorded in whole or in part via video and/or audio. Recordings of public sessions may also be publicly archived. By being part of public sessions, participants consent to these recordings and that their name may appear (see more on names later in this paragraph). Participants also agree they are owed no compensation at the time of the session or at any point in the future (see the Responsibility of Content Contributors section in the ProxThink Terms of Use). However, in accordance with our Collaboration Deal (see the Collaboration Proxri section above), session participants may get proxri from the Consultant, or from other session participants, or from the public at large, or from some combination of these. Therefore, public session participants are encouraged to use their real names and provide ways for people to find and/or contact them, generally via search and/or directly as provided for in ways that may be specific to each session. Disclosure of their real names and any contact information by participants is subject to the ProxThink Terms of Use, including but not limited to the sections titled Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability, General Representation and Warranty, and Indemnification. The distribution of recordings of public sessions by people other than the Consultant is allowed, and is covered by the ProxThink Intellectual Property (IP) Deal.

    Not Allowed (Open and Custom Sessions) — For open and custom sessions, please respect the other session participants and the Consultant by not recording, rebroadcasting, or distributing any part of the online session, including but not limited to audio, video, screen-sharing, text, mind maps, chat dialogue, etc. This request also includes not rebroadcasting and not distributing recordings of the session provided by Consultant to Client.

    Conditional Distribution by Consultant (Open and Custom Sessions) — For open and custom sessions, consultant reserves the right to rebroadcast, distribute, or otherwise make public portions of sessions in the following cases:
    1) The portion of the session includes no participation of session participants and no content provided by session participants.
    2) If the portion of the session under consideration for distribution includes participation of, or content provided by, any session participants, then Consultant must get the permission of those session participants. As part of permitting such use, these session participants will be eligible for possible collaboration proxri as discussed in our Collaboration Deal (see Section 5 above).
  7. Privacy Policy

    General — Client's contact information, including email address, will be subject to the Privacy Policy of ProxThink.com. As stated there, "We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our services and products, or protect our rights." For more, see the Privacy Policy at: http://proxthink.com/members/about/privacy-policy.php.

    Names in Open Sessions — During open sessions, participants might view or hear each other's names (but not other contact information) via the chat interface, the conference call, or other functions of the online meeting system. If this is a privacy concern, when registering participants can use a first name and last initial, or some alternate name. However, in accordance with our Collaboration Deal (see the Collaboration Proxri section above), session participants may get proxri from the Consultant and/or from other session participants. Therefore, participants are encouraged to use their real names if possible and provide ways for people to find and/or contact them, generally via search and/or directly as provided for in ways that may be specific to each session. Disclosure of their real names and any contact information by participants is subject to the ProxThink Terms of Use, including but not limited to the sections titled Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability, General Representation and Warranty, and Indemnification.

    Names in Public Sessions — In live public sessions and the publicly archived recorded versions of public sessions, participant names may be revealed to the public via the chat interface, the conference call, or other functions of the online meeting system as well as via broadcasts such as Google+ Hangouts On Air. If this is a privacy concern, participants should participate anonymously (this may or may not be possible depending on the technology) or refrain from participating in ways other than simply viewing the session. However, in accordance with our Collaboration Deal (see the Collaboration Proxri section above), session participants may get proxri from the Consultant, or from other session participants, or from the public at large, or from some combination of these. Therefore, participants are encouraged to use their real names if possible and provide ways for people to find and/or contact them, generally via search and/or directly as provided for in ways that may be specific to each session. Disclosure of their real names and any contact information by participants is subject to the ProxThink Terms of Use, including but not limited to the sections titled Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability, General Representation and Warranty, and Indemnification.
  8. Intellectual Property Ownership

    For custom sessions, Consultant assigns to Client all patent, copyright, and trade secret rights in anything created or developed by or with Consultant for Client under this Agreement. This assignment is conditioned upon complying with the Proxri Deal (see Section 2 above) under this Agreement. Consultant shall help prepare any documents Client considers necessary to secure any copyright, patent, or other intellectual property rights in Consultant’s work product under this Agreement. For such document preparation Consultant shall be paid $90 per hour and be promptly reimbursed for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. In relation to the present or future value of any intellectual property created as a result of Consultant’s work with Client, Client is requested but not required to provide Consultant additional proxri (short for ProxRewards). For more information about proxri, see http://proxthink.com/brief/intro-proxri.php.
  9. Confidentiality

    For custom sessions, Consultant acknowledges that it may be necessary for Client to disclose certain confidential and proprietary information to Consultant in order for Consultant to perform duties under this Agreement. Consultant acknowledges that any disclosure to any third party or any misuse of this proprietary or confidential information would irreparably harm Client. Accordingly, Consultant will not disclose or use, either during or after the term of this Agreement, any proprietary or confidential information of Client without Client’s prior written permission except to the extent necessary to perform services on Client’s behalf.

    Proprietary or confidential information includes:
    • the written, printed, graphic, or electronically recorded materials furnished by Client for Consultant to use
    • business or marketing plans or strategies, customer lists, operating procedures, trade secrets, design formulas, know-how and processes, computer programs and inventories, discoveries and improvements of any kind, sales projections, and pricing information
    • information belonging to customers and suppliers of Client about whom Consultant gained knowledge as a result of Consultant’s services to Client
    • any written or tangible information stamped “confidential,” “proprietary,” or with a similar legend, and
    • any information that Client makes reasonable efforts to maintain the secrecy of.

    Consultant shall not be restricted in using any material which is publicly available, already in Consultant’s possession prior to commencement of Consultant’s provision of services to Client, or known to Consultant without restriction, or is rightfully obtained by Consultant from sources other than Client. Upon termination of Consultant’s services to Client, or at Client’s request, Consultant shall deliver to Client all materials in Consultant’s possession relating to Client’s business.
  10. ProxThink.com Terms of Use

    Since the ProxThink.com website, and the ideas, concepts, patterns, models and tools on the website, may be used by Client during online sessions, Client agrees to be bound by the ProxThink.com Terms of Use as a part of this agreement. Links to the ProxThink.com Terms of Use may be found at the bottom of most pages of the ProxThink.com website, as well as via the following direct link:
    http://proxthink.com/members/about/terms-of-use.php
  11. Consultant’s Reusable Resources

    Consultant owns or holds a license to use and sublicense various resources in existence before the start date of this Agreement (“Consultant’s Resources”). Consultant’s Resources include, but are not limited to, the ideas, concepts, patterns, models and tools on the website ProxThink.com (“ProxThink Framework”). Consultant may, at his option, include Consultant’s Resources in the work performed under this Agreement. Consultant retains all right, title and interest, including all copyrights, patent rights, and trade secret rights in Consultant’s Resources. Usage of the ProxThink Framework is governed by the Terms of Use and Proxri Deal, found via links for each on most pages of the ProxThink.com website, and via the following direct links:
    http://proxthink.com/members/about/terms-of-use.php
    http://proxthink.com/members/about/proxri-deal.php

    In the case of resources which are not part of the ProxThink Framework, Consultant grants Client a royalty-free nonexclusive license to use Consultant’s Resources incorporated into the work performed by Consultant under this Agreement, and this license shall have a perpetual term and may not be transferred by Client.
  12. Term of Agreement

    This agreement will become effective when signed (as defined in the Signatures sections at the end of this agreement) by both parties and will terminate on the earliest of:
    • the date Consultant completes the services required by this Agreement.
    • the date a party terminates the Agreement as provided below.
  13. Terminating the Agreement

    With reasonable cause, either party may terminate this Agreement effective immediately by giving written notice of cause for termination. Reasonable cause includes:
    • a material violation of this Agreement, or
    • nonpayment of Consultant's compensation after 20 days' written demand for payment.
    Consultant shall be entitled to full payment for services performed prior to the effective date of termination.
  14. Independent Contractor Status

    Consultant is an independent contractor, not Client’s employee. Consultant’s employees or subcontractors are not Client’s employees. Consultant and Client agree to the following rights consistent with an independent contractor relationship:
    • Consultant has the right to perform services for others during the term of this Agreement.
    • Consultant has the sole right to control and direct the means, manner, and method by which the services required by this Agreement will be performed.
    • Consultant has the right to hire subcontractors as assistants or to use employees as assistants to provide the services required by this Agreement, except in the case of services detailed in the above Section 1 titled Services, which state that Consultant shall perform those services.
    • Consultant or Consultant’s employees or subcontractors shall perform the services required by this Agreement; Client shall not hire, supervise, or pay any assistants to help Consultant.
    • Neither Consultant nor Consultant’s employees or subcontractors shall receive any training from Client in the skills necessary to perform the services required by this Agreement.
    • Client shall not require Consultant or Consultant’s employees or subcontractors to devote full time to performing the services required by this Agreement.
    • Neither Consultant nor Consultant’s employees or subcontractors are eligible to participate in any employee pension, health, vacation pay, sick pay, or other fringe benefit plan of Client.
  15. Local, State, and Federal Taxes

    Consultant shall pay all income taxes and FICA (Social Security and Medicare taxes) incurred while performing services under this Agreement. Client will not:
    • withhold FICA from Consultant's payments or make FICA payments on Consultant's behalf
    • make state or federal unemployment compensation contributions on Consultant's behalf, or
    • withhold state or federal income tax from Consultant's payments.
    The charges included here do not include taxes. If Consultant is required to pay any federal, state, or local sales, use, property, or value added taxes based on the services provided under this Agreement, the taxes shall be separately billed to Client. Client shall be responsible for paying any interest or penalties incurred due to late payment or nonpayment of any taxes by Client.
  16. Exclusive Agreement

    This is the entire Agreement between Consultant and Client.
  17. Modifying the Agreement

    Client and Consultant recognize that:
    • Consultant's original cost and time estimates may be too low due to unforeseen events or to factors unknown to Consultant when this Agreement was made,
    • Client may desire a midproject change in Consultant's services that would add time and cost to the project and possibly inconvenience Consultant, or
    • Other provisions of this Agreement may be difficult to carry out due to unforeseen circumstances.
    If any intended changes or any other events beyond the parties' control require adjustments to this Agreement, the parties shall make a good faith effort to agree on all necessary particulars. Such agreements shall be put in writing, signed by the parties, and added to this Agreement.
  18. Resolving Disputes

    If a dispute arises under this Agreement, the parties agree to first try to resolve the dispute with the help of a mutually agreed-upon mediator in Los Angeles, California. Any costs and fees other than attorney fees associated with the mediation shall be shared equally by the parties. If the dispute is not resolved within 30 days after it is referred to the mediator, any party may take the matter to court. If any court action is necessary to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorney fees, costs, and expenses in addition to any other relief to which the party may be entitled.
  19. Limited Liability

    This provision allocates the risks under this Agreement between Consultant and Client. Consultant’s pricing reflects the allocation of risk and limitation of liability specified below.

    Consultant’s total liability to Client under this Agreement for damages, costs, and expenses shall not exceed the compensation received by Consultant under this Agreement. However, Consultant shall remain liable for bodily injury or personal property damage resulting from grossly negligent or willful actions of Consultant or Consultant’s employees or agents while on Client’s premises to the extent such actions or omissions were not caused by Client.

    NEITHER PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIABLE FOR THE OTHER’S LOST PROFITS OR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT OR TORT, EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED BY THE OTHER PARTY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

  21. No Partnership

    This Agreement does not create a partnership relationship. Neither party has authority to enter into contracts on the other’s behalf.
  22. Applicable Law

    This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the state of California, USA.

Signatures for Recorded Sessions

Signatures for Public Sessions
• For sessions hosted via public Google+ Hangouts On Air, signatures can be one of two types: 1) this agreement shall be considered signed by both Client and Consultant when Client views the session; or 2) this agreement shall be considered signed by both Client and Consultant when Client joins the AnyMeeting.com session by providing at least their name and email address.
