By accessing the website you accept and agree to be bound, without limitation or qualification by these terms. If you do not accept any of the terms stated here, do not use the website or purchase the school reports.

Your Obligations

ParenTheses authorizes you to view and download the information and materials on the website and the school reports that can be purchased through the website solely for your personal, non-commercial use. You may not distribute these materials. You may not modify or sell any information and material available on or through the website or reproduce, display, or otherwise use the materials in any way for any personal, public or commercial purpose.

Disclaimer of Warranties

The website is designed to provide users with information to understand their local school system, learn about schools in their community and choose schools for their children. The information included on the website and in the school reports available for purchase through the website is to be used for informational purposes only. Some information contained on the website or in the school reports may represent opinion or judgment or contain inadvertent technical oversights, factual inaccuracies, or typographical errors. ParenTheses does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of any information on the website and in the school reports. As such, ParenTheses will not be responsible for any errors, inaccuracies, omissions or deficiencies in the information provided on the website and in these reports. This information is provided “as is,” with no guarantees of completeness, non-infringement, accuracy or timeliness, and without warranties of any kind, express or implied. You therefore assume sole responsibility for all risks associated with the use of this information and further accept that ParenTheses is in no way responsible for any consequences whatsoever to anyone arising from your use or interpretation of any information contained within or linked from or to the website and contained within the school reports. Before making decisions based on the information, we strongly recommend that you visit the schools and ask the Principal to review and comment on the data.

Third-Party Sites

The website may contain links to third-party websites. ParenTheses provides these links solely to assist users in locating other Internet resources that may be of interest to them and you assume sole responsibility and risk for your use of links to third-party websites. ParenTheses does not operate or control in any respect any information, content, products or services on such third-party websites. ParenTheses does not represent or endorse the accuracy or reliability of any of the information, content or advertisements contained on, distributed through, or linked, downloaded or accessed from any of the services contained on these third-party websites. No reference or link to a third party or a third-party site shall constitute an endorsement of such third party or such third-party site.

Parent Interview Participants

ParenTheses is grateful to parents who agree to participate in interviews to help fellow parents find the right school for them and for their child. Parent interview participants (in this section, referred to as “you”) are responsible for the content of the information that you provide in the interview. We compile parent feedback in a write-up that we include in the relevant school’s report. Prior to including parent feedback in a school report, we provide parents ample opportunity to review and edit the write-up. This gives parents the opportunity to take out any information that they do not wish to include. After repeated attempts to contact a parent, if a parent does not reply or does not provide their feedback, we will consider this the equivalent of a parent’s consent to include the write-up as is. However, we will inform the parent regarding this intention.

By participating in an interview, you automatically grant to ParenTheses an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, royalty-free, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, modify, perform, display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute the information from the write-up that will be included in the relevant school report and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such information and content, and to grant and authorize sub-licenses of the foregoing in any manner and medium. We have the right to remove any of the information that you provide in the write-up that will be included in the relevant school report at any time and without notice.

To the extent possible, any information you share in an interview should be true and correct; and you will indemnify and hold ParenTheses harmless to the extent that ParenTheses is subject to claims arising from any information that you provide.
