- Earnings Disclaimer
We make no representations, warranties or guarantees regarding the sales, earnings, or other results you or others will achieve as a result of using our courses.
While we’ve done our best to ensure that we accurately represent our program and its ability to help you grow your business and improve your finances, you are ultimately responsible for your results, which will depend on your knowledge, ability, business savvy, financial situation, and the amount of time and effort you invest (among other factors).
The results experienced by our students/members vary significantly. You may make little or no money; in fact, you may lose money. We do not know what sales, earnings, or other results are typical for our students/members.
To the extent that we present testimonials or other statements concerning the sales, earnings or other results achieved by our students/members, you should understand that those statements are not expressed or implied claims that you or others will achieve similar results. Also, past sales, earnings, or other results achieved by our students/members are not necessarily indicative of what their future results will be.
Where sales, earnings or other results achieved by our students/members are mentioned, those statements are likely to be based on information provided to us by those students/members. We may not have documentation or other verification of the results actually achieved by those individuals.
To the extent that we present hypothetical examples, we do so in order to help explain the principles and techniques we teach you. If sales, earnings, or other figures are used in hypothetical examples, you should not assume that those figures reflect the results achieved by any actual student/member, and you should not expect to achieve the same or similar sales or earnings.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Grind Stop infringe your copyright, you or your agent may send to us a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon Grind Stop actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to us a counter-notice. Be sure to read our Copyright Policy, which is part of our Terms and Conditions.
For your complaint to be valid under the DMCA, you must provide the following information in writing:
- An electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
- Identification of the specific copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed.
- Identification of the specific material that is claimed to be infringing and where it is located on the Service.
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as your address, telephone number and email address.
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or law.
- A statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner.
The above information must be submitted to the following DMCA Agent: (Steven Siegel, 300 West 6th Street, Suite 1960, Austin, TX 78701)
This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Grind Stop and our respective assigns, successors, heirs, and legal representatives. Neither this Agreement nor any rights hereunder may be assigned without the prior written consent of Grind Stop. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all rights and obligations under this Agreement may be freely assigned by us to any affiliated entity or any of its wholly owned subsidiaries.
XVI. Governing Laws
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in Texas; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over the Company, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Texas. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Texas, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Except as otherwise agreed between the parties or as described in this Agreement, any claim or dispute between you and Grind Stop that arises in whole or in part from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Travis County, Texas, unless submitted to arbitration as set forth in the following paragraph.
XVII. Resolution of Disputes by Binding Arbitration
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. THIS SECTION PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF BY A JUDGE, JURY, OR CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.
Mandatory Binding Arbitration. All disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or our Service in general (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal or equitable theory) must be resolved by final and binding arbitration. This includes any dispute based on any Service, advertising or otherwise having a connection to this Agreement. The arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator using the procedures described by this Section. If any portion of this Resolution of Disputes by Binding Arbitration Section is determined to be unenforceable, then the remainder shall be given full force and effect.
The arbitration of any dispute shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, as modified by this Agreement, which are in effect on the date a dispute is submitted to the AAA. To the extent that such procedures differ from this Agreement, this Agreement shall govern to the fullest extent permitted by law. In conducting the arbitration and making any award, the arbitrator shall be bound by and strictly enforce the terms of this Agreement and may not limit, expand, or otherwise modify its terms.
NO DISPUTE MAY BE JOINED WITH ANOTHER LAWSUIT, OR IN AN ARBITRATION WITH A DISPUTE OF ANY OTHER PERSON, OR RESOLVED ON A CLASS WIDE BASIS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT AWARD DAMAGES THAT ARE BARRED BY THIS AGREEMENT AND MAY NOT AWARD PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR ATTORNEYS’ FEES. YOU AND COMPANY BOTH WAIVE ANY CLAIMS FOR AN AWARD OF DAMAGES THAT ARE EXCLUDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. In the event that a dispute arises out of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to its reasonable expenses, including attorney’s fees, regardless of whether in house or outside counsel is employed.
Arbitration Information and Filing Procedure. Before you take a dispute to arbitration or to small claims court, you must first write to us at Grind Stop, and give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. Similarly, before we takes a dispute to arbitration, we must first attempt to resolve it by contacting you. If the dispute cannot be satisfactorily resolved within ninety (90) days from the date you or the Company is notified by the other of a dispute, then either party may contact the AAA and request arbitration of the dispute. Information about the arbitration process and the AAA’s Arbitration Rules and its fees are available on the Internet at www.adr.org. The arbitration will be based only on written submissions of the parties and the documents submitted to the AAA relating to the dispute, unless either party requests that the arbitration be conducted using the AAA’s telephonic, online, or in-person procedures. Additional charges may apply for these procedures. Any in-person arbitration will be conducted at a location the AAA selects in Texas. Arbitrations under this Agreement shall be confidential as permitted by federal law.
Time for Filing Claims. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the Agreement must be filed with the AAA within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Grind Stop in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and the Company concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and our failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
