Welcome to Hadley! Hadley Investment Co. (“Hadley”) is a public benefit corporation and a registered investment adviser (“RIA”) with the United State Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Hadley was established to make higher education a more accessible and affordable reality for Americans.
The Services consist of the following, as may be updated by Hadley from time to time:
Hadley provides investment advice and recommendations geared towards helping you find a 529 plan (“New Plan”) and make contributions to the New Plan.
If you have an existing 529 plan (“Existing Plan”), Hadley also allows you to link your Existing Plan to the Application to make contributions to such Existing Plan.
Hadley also allows friends and family to send contributions (or set recurring contributions) into New or Existing Plans (each, a “Plan”).
The Application allows you to track your Plan savings, gifts, and goals.
Not Included in the Services
While the Services can be used to identify the right Plan for you, you must enroll in a Plan directly with the plan administrators (“Plan Administrators”). Hadley does not manage any Plans. Plans are managed by Plan Administrators and for all matters concerning the management, monitoring and administration of your Plan, you should deal directly with the Plan Administrators. Hadley is not affiliated with Plan Administrators. Hadley makes no warranties or representations whatsoever with regard to any services provided by Plan Administrators. When navigating to Plan Administrator websites or applications, understand that Hadley does not own or control (or purport to own or control) any such third-party content. You will not consider Hadley, nor will Hadley be construed as, a party to such transactions, whether or not Hadley may have received some form of revenue or other remuneration in connection with the transaction or be liable for any costs or damages arising out of, either directly or indirectly, you or any other person involved or related to the transaction.
Hadley may communicate with the Plan Administrator about your transactions or account information only to the extent that such communication is necessary in order to deliver services to you.
Contact your Plan Administrator or your state’s program to confirm the most current tax laws and policies. Tax laws and regulations change frequently, and their application can vary widely based on the specific facts and circumstances involved. Hadley does not offer tax services or advice. Always consult your tax advisor regarding your specific tax situation before you make any tax-related decisions.
All investment carries risk of loss, including loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results. There can be no assurance that any investment will achieve its objectives or avoid substantial losses. Ownership of all investment decisions undertaken by you shall vest with you after consideration of possible risks of such decisions. Plan participants should consult with tax and financial specialists prior to opening or modifying a Plan. Plan participants should consider contribution amounts in light of personal financial circumstances. Having a Plan may marginally impact the potential amount of financial aid granted through FAFSA.

FEES AND PAYMENT TERMS.
Hadley charges certain transaction processing fees in connection with your use of the Services, and such fees shall be displayed on the Website and/or the Application (“Processing Fee”). You will be responsible for payment of the applicable Processing Fee for the use of the Services. Except as set forth in the Agreement, all fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and Hadley for the Services until Hadley accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means of communication.
You agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Hadley’s current fees are outlined on the Website and may be updated from time to time. You must provide Hadley with valid ACH authentication information (bank account and routing numbers) for a U.S. bank account as a condition to signing up for the Services. Your agreement with your financial institution governs your use of the designated bank account, and you must refer to that agreement, not this Agreement, to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Hadley with your bank account information, you agree that Hadley is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Hadley hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Hadley of any change in your billing address or bank account used for payment hereunder. Hadley reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on Hadley Properties or by e-mail delivery to you.
Linking Third-Party Accounts.
You acknowledge and agree that when Hadley accesses, retrieves, and uses your Account Information, it is acting as your agent, and not as the agent of or on behalf of any other party. The Account Information may include ACH authentication information (bank account and routing numbers), transaction data, identity verification information, and account balance details. By linking your Linked Account, you also authorize and direct Hadley to use a third-party service provider, such as Plaid, to indirectly perform any of these same services.
If Hadley uses a third-party service provider to access your Account Information, that third-party service provider will provide to Hadley, on your behalf, your Account Information for our use in connection with the Services, including to respond to your inquiries, fulfill your requests, and provide you with customer service.
Hadley is not responsible for the Account Information and does not review the Account Information for accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. You agree that Hadley is entitled to rely on the foregoing authorization and direction granted by you. You represent and warrant you are a legal owner of, or you are authorized to provide Hadley with, all Account Information, and have the right to grant the permissions set forth herein, and a third-party service provider’s exercise of its rights set forth herein will not violate any application laws or third-party rights.
The payments required under Section 7.1 (Processing Fees) of this Agreement do not include any Sales Tax that may be due in connection with the services provided under this Agreement. If Hadley determines it has a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this Agreement, Hadley shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments required under Section 7.1 (Processing Fees) of this Agreement. If any service, or payments for any services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to Hadley, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify Hadley for any liability or expense Hadley may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon Hadley’s request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
You agree to make all payments of fees to Hadley free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to Hadley will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide Hadley with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
If you choose to set up a Recurring Contribution, your Recurring Contribution will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Agreement.
If you set up a Recurring Contribution in your Account, after your initial contribution date, your Recurring Contribution will automatically be debited from your linked bank account according to the schedule you specify in your Account (e.g., once a month, once every 2 weeks, etc.) (each a “Recurring Contribution Date”) and continue indefinitely (unless you cancel or opt-out in accordance in the procedures outlined in this section), subject to Hadley’s then-current Processing Fees. You agree that your Account will be subject to this Recurring Contribution schedule unless you cancel your Recurring Contribution by logging into and going to the “Contributions” page of your “Account Settings” page.
You may cancel scheduled Recurring Contributions at any time prior to each Recurring Contribution Date. By setting up Recurring Contributions, you authorize Hadley to charge your bank account for Processing Fees, and again at each Recurring Contribution Date. Upon each Recurring Contribution Date, if Hadley cannot charge your bank account, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that Hadley may either terminate or suspend your Recurring Contribution and continue to attempt to charge your bank account until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and your Recurring Contributions will begin as of the day payment was received).
Free Trials and Other Promotions.
Any free trial or other promotion that provides Registered User level access to the Services must be used within the specified time of the trial. At the end of the trial period, your use of that Service will expire, and any further use of the Service is prohibited unless you pay the applicable subscription fee. If you are inadvertently charged for a subscription, please contact Hadley to have the charges reversed.
Hadley reserves the right to display Third-Party Ads before, after, or in conjunction with User Content posted on the Services, and you acknowledge and agree that Hadley has no obligation to you in connection therewith (including, without limitation, any obligation to share revenue received by Hadley as a result of such advertising).
You agree to indemnify and hold Hadley, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners, suppliers, and licensors (each, a “Hadley Party” and collectively, the “Hadley Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of any and all of the following: (a) Your Content; (b) your use of, or inability to use, any Hadley Property; (c) your violation of the Agreement; (d) your violation of any rights of another party, including any Registered Users; or (e) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. Hadley reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with Hadley in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the Hadley Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, or suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Website or any Services provided hereunder. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your Account, the Agreement and/or your access to Hadley Properties.

Subject to the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, you and Hadley agree that any dispute, claim, or disagreements arising out of or relating in any way to your access to or use of the Services or of the Application , any Communications you receive, any products sold or distributed through the Application, the Services or the Agreement and prior versions of the Agreement, including claims and disputes and arose between us before the effective data of this Agreement (each, a “Dispute”), will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you and Hadley may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if such claims qualify and remain in small claims court; and (2) you or Hadley may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).
For purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, “Dispute” will also include disputes that arose or involve facts occurring before the existence of this Agreement or any prior versions of the Agreement as well as claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
Informal Dispute Resolution.
There might be instances when a Dispute arises between you and Hadley. If that occurs, Hadley is committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution. You and Hadley agree that good faith informal efforts to resolve Disputes can result in a prompt, low‐cost and mutually beneficial outcome. You and Hadley therefore agree that before either party commences arbitration against the other (or initiates an action in small claims court if a party so elects), we will personally meet and confer telephonically or via videoconference, in a good faith effort to resolve informally any Dispute covered by this Arbitration Agreement (“Informal Dispute Resolution Conference”). If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you will also participate in the conference.
The party initiating a Dispute must give notice to the other party in writing of its intent to initiate an Informal Dispute Resolution Conference (“Notice”), which shall occur within 45 days after the other party receives such Notice, unless an extension is mutually agreed upon by the parties. Notice to Hadley that you intend to initiate an Informal Dispute Resolution Conference should be sent by email to [email protected] or regular mail to our offices Hadley Investment Co., Attn: Legal Department, 54 Danbury Road, Suite 224, Ridgefield, CT 06877. The Notice must include: (1) your name, telephone number, mailing address, e‐mail address associated with your account (if you have one); (2) the name, telephone number, mailing address and e‐mail address of your counsel, if any; and (3) a description of your Dispute.
The Informal Dispute Resolution Conference shall be individualized such that a separate conference must be held each time either party initiates a Dispute, even if the same law firm or group of law firms represents multiple users in similar cases, unless all parties agree; multiple individuals initiating a Dispute cannot participate in the same Informal Dispute Resolution Conference unless all parties agree. In the time between a party receiving the Notice and the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference, nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall prohibit the parties from engaging in informal communications to resolve the initiating party’s Dispute. Engaging in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference is a condition precedent and requirement that must be fulfilled before commencing arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference process required by this section.
Waiver of Jury Trial.
YOU AND HADLEY HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.
You and HADLEY are instead electing that all Disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in the subsection entitled “Applicability of Arbitration Agreement” above. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief.
YOU AND HADLEY AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED IN SUBSECTION 12.9, EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, AND THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE BE BROUGHT, HEARD, ADMINISTERED, RESOLVED, OR ARBITRATED ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR MASS ACTION BASIS. ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND DISPUTES OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
Subject to this Arbitration Agreement, the arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the party's individual claim. Nothing in this paragraph is intended to, nor shall it, affect the terms and conditions under the subsection 12.9 entitled “Batch Arbitration.” Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Arbitration Agreement, if a court decides by means of a final decision, not subject to any further appeal or recourse, that the limitations of this subsection, “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief,” are invalid or unenforceable as to a particular claim or request for relief (such as a request for public injunctive relief), you and Hadley agree that that particular claim or request for relief (and only that particular claim or request for relief) shall be severed from the arbitration and may be litigated in the state or federal courts located in the State of Delaware. All other Disputes shall be arbitrated or litigated in small claims court. This subsection does not prevent you or Hadley from participating in a class-wide settlement of claims.
Rules and Forum.
The Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce; and notwithstanding any other provision herein with respect to the applicable substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement and any arbitration proceedings. If the Informal Dispute Resolution Process described above does not resolve satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after receipt of your Notice, you and Hadley agree that either party shall have the right to finally resolve the Dispute through binding arbitration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this section of this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are currently available at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf.
A party who wishes to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a request for arbitration (the “Request”). The Request must include: (1) the name, telephone number, mailing address, e‐mail address of the party seeking arbitration and the account username (if applicable) as well as the email address associated with any applicable account; (2) a statement of the legal claims being asserted and the factual bases of those claims; (3) a description of the remedy sought and an accurate, good‐faith calculation of the amount in controversy in United States Dollars; (4) a statement certifying completion of the Informal Dispute Resolution process as described above; and (5) evidence that the requesting party has paid any necessary filing fees in connection with such arbitration.
If the party requesting arbitration is represented by counsel, the Request shall also include counsel’s name, telephone number, mailing address, and email address. Such counsel must also sign the Request. By signing the Request, counsel certifies to the best of counsel’s knowledge, information, and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, that: (1) the Request is not being presented for any improper purpose, such as to harass, cause unnecessary delay, or needlessly increase the cost of dispute resolution; (2) the claims, defenses and other legal contentions are warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law or for establishing new law; and (3) the factual and damages contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after a reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery.
Unless you and Hadley otherwise agree, or the Batch Arbitration process discussed in subsection 12.9 is triggered, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator may direct a limited and reasonable exchange of information between the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. Your responsibility to pay any AAA fees and costs will be solely as set forth in the applicable AAA Rules.
You and Hadley agree that all materials and documents exchanged during the arbitration proceedings shall be kept confidential and shall not be shared with anyone except the parties’ attorneys, accountants, or business advisors, and then subject to the condition that they agree to keep all materials and documents exchanged during the arbitration proceedings confidential.
The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty-five (35) days of delivery of the Request, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules, provided that if the Batch Arbitration process under subsection 12.9 is triggered, the AAA will appoint the arbitrator for each batch.
Authority of Arbitrator.
The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute, including, without limitation, disputes arising out of or related to the interpretation or application of the Arbitration Agreement, including the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or any portion of the Arbitration Agreement, except for the following: (1) all Disputes arising out of or relating to the subsection entitled “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief,” including any claim that all or part of the subsection entitled “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief” is unenforceable, illegal, void or voidable, or that such subsection entitled “Waiver of Class and Other Non-Individualized Relief” has been breached, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (2) except as expressly contemplated in the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration,” all Disputes about the payment of arbitration fees shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (3) all Disputes about whether either party has satisfied any condition precedent to arbitration shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; and (4) all Disputes about which version of the Arbitration Agreement applies shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties, except as expressly provided in the subsection entitled “Batch Arbitration.” The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any Dispute. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Attorneys’ Fees and Costs.
The parties shall bear their own attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of the Dispute or the relief sought in the Request was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). If you or Hadley need to invoke the authority of a court of competent jurisdiction to compel arbitration, then the party that obtains an order compelling arbitration in such action shall have the right to collect from the other party its reasonable costs, necessary disbursements, and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred in securing an order compelling arbitration. The prevailing party in any court action relating to whether either party has satisfied any condition precedent to arbitration, including the Informal Dispute Resolution Process, is entitled to recover their reasonable costs, necessary disbursements, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
To increase the efficiency of administration and resolution of arbitrations, you and Hadley agree that in the event that there are one hundred (100) or more individual Requests of a substantially similar nature filed against Hadley by or with the assistance of the same law firm, group of law firms, or organizations, within a thirty (30) day period (or as soon as possible thereafter), the AAA shall (1) administer the arbitration demands in batches of 100 Requests per batch (plus, to the extent there are less than 100 Requests left over after the batching described above, a final batch consisting of the remaining Requests); (2) appoint one arbitrator for each batch; and (3) provide for the resolution of each batch as a single consolidated arbitration with one set of filing and administrative fees due per side per batch, one procedural calendar, one hearing (if any) in a place to be determined by the arbitrator, and one final award (“Batch Arbitration”).
All parties agree that Requests are of a “substantially similar nature” if they arise out of or relate to the same event or factual scenario and raise the same or similar legal issues and seek the same or similar relief. To the extent the parties disagree on the application of the Batch Arbitration process, the disagreeing party shall advise the AAA, and the AAA shall appoint a sole standing arbitrator to determine the applicability of the Batch Arbitration process (“Administrative Arbitrator”). In an effort to expedite resolution of any such dispute by the Administrative Arbitrator, the parties agree the Administrative Arbitrator may set forth such procedures as are necessary to resolve any disputes promptly. The Administrative Arbitrator’s fees shall be paid by Hadley.
You and Hadley agree to cooperate in good faith with the AAA to implement the Batch Arbitration process including the payment of single filing and administrative fees for batches of Requests, as well as any steps to minimize the time and costs of arbitration, which may include: (1) the appointment of a discovery special master to assist the arbitrator in the resolution of discovery disputes; and (2) the adoption of an expedited calendar of the arbitration proceedings.
This Batch Arbitration provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing a class, collective and/or mass arbitration or action of any kind, or arbitration involving joint or consolidated claims under any circumstances, except as expressly set forth in this provision.
30-Day Right to Opt Out.
You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: Hadley Investment Co., Attn: Legal Department, 54 Danbury Road, Suite 224, Ridgefield, CT 06877 within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, the email address you used to set up your Hadley account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
Except as provided in the subsection entitled “Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief”, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. You further agree that any Dispute that you have with Hadley as detailed in this Arbitration Agreement must be initiated via arbitration within the applicable statute of limitation for that claim or controversy, or it will be forever time barred. Likewise, you agree that all applicable statutes of limitation will apply to such arbitration in the same manner as those statutes of limitation would apply in the applicable court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Hadley makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will notify you. Unless you reject the change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing to Hadley at Hadley Investment Co., Attn: Legal Department, 54 Danbury Road, Suite 224, Ridgefield, CT 06877, your continued use of the Application and/or Services, including the acceptance of services offered on the Application following the posting of changes to this Arbitration Agreement constitutes your acceptance of any such changes. Changes to this Arbitration Agreement do not provide you with a new opportunity to opt out of the Arbitration Agreement if you have previously agreed to a version of this Agreement and did not validly opt out of arbitration. If you reject any change or update to this Arbitration Agreement, and you were bound by an existing agreement to arbitrate Disputes arising out of or relating in any way to your access to or use of the Services or of the Application, any Communications you receive, the Services, or this Agreement, the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted the Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to the Agreement) remain in full force and effect. Hadley will continue to honor any valid opt outs of the Arbitration Agreement that you made to a prior version of this Agreement.
You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Application and the Services is dependent on the third-party from whom you received the Application license, e.g., the Apple App Store or Google Play (each, an “App Store”). You acknowledge that the Agreement is between you and Company and not with the App Store. Company, not the App Store, is solely responsible for Company Properties, including the Application, the content thereof, maintenance, support services, and warranty therefor, and addressing any claims relating thereto (e.g., product liability, legal compliance or intellectual property infringement). In order to use the Application, you must have access to a wireless network, and you agree to pay all fees associated with such access. You also agree to pay all fees (if any) charged by the App Store in connection with Company Properties, including the Application. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Application is conditioned upon your compliance with all terms of agreement imposed by the applicable App Store when using any Company Property, including the Application. You acknowledge that the App Store (and its subsidiaries) are third-party beneficiaries of the Agreement and will have the right to enforce it.

You and Hadley acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of the Agreement as related to your license of the App Store Sourced Application, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the Agreement, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the Agreement as related to your license of the App Store Sourced Application against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Hadley is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Agreement, Hadley’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice.

Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Hadley by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first-class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
If any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
