The Procedures may be used by a wide range of providers depending upon the providers’ licensing and level of expertise. Staccato makes clear to the Students, and the Students understand that the Courses do not provide advice as to what Procedures Students may lawfully engage in performing.
Therefore, and based upon the foregoing, Students must research and acquaint themselves with laws applicable to the legality of the Students’ performance of the Procedures.

The Claims shall include any and all: (a) claims by Staccato against its Students; and (b) claims by Staccato’s Students against Staccato including claims against Staccato’s officers, directors, managers, members, related entities and constituent entities. This arbitration clause is meant to be interpreted and construed broadly.
Neither the Students nor Staccato shall be entitled to join or consolidate any claims whatsoever, including but not limited to claims in arbitration, by or against each other, or arbitrate any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity. Any arbitration between the Staccato and the Students may not be arbitrated on a collective or class wide basis.

Within 15 days of the initiation of the arbitration and payment of all fees and costs by the initiating party, the respondent (i.e., non-initiating party) shall reimburse the initiating party 50% of the fees and costs.
