IntelliBoard operates a platform that provides analytic and reporting services to education communities and institutions that want expanded reporting and analytics for their LMS platform.
The platform includes a dashboard and analytics service designed to connect with existing learning management systems (each an “LMS”). Depending upon the LMS environment to which you subscribe, we may or may not store data. In the event that IntelliBoard stores data based upon your LMS environment, you and all designees will be made aware of how your LMS integrates with IntelliBoard. In order for the processing of reports and analytics to visualize at an acceptable speed, IntelliBoard integrates and duplicates selected data points to IntelliBoard servers under Customer account authentication. No other Customers can access that data set, and each data set is located in a specific location assigned to that specific Customer, segregating server data. No direct access to data exists, other than through the IntelliBoard application itself. The link to current IntelliBoard integrations can be found at https://intelliboard.net/downloads. In select LMS IntelliBoard integrations, IntelliBoard uses API access and processes data, authenticated by the LMS. Only LMS Partners have access to the API. IntelliBoard has partnerships with all LMS providers where API access is used. In some cases, our integration processes LMS queries on connected LMS servers via web services by sending a specific query command from your web browser virtual dashboard to your connected LMS server(s). The data returned reflects learner academic and instructor activity data from your LMS server. This data populates the respective reports and analytic outputs requested which can then be viewed from your virtual dashboard in your web browser. The reports and analytics shown provide an instantaneous snapshot of your LMS based on your Account’s level of access. In other cases, a snapshot of your data is stored on IntelliBoard servers hosted by Amazon Web Services. At no time can your connected LMS data be altered on your LMS servers(s) while logged in on our virtual dashboard, because the dashboard is fundamentally a data viewing or read-only service which only gives you external data viewing rights. To view any live LMS changes at any point in time made to any LMS connected with the IntelliBoard Service, you must refresh (resubmit) the browser page to see any updated changes on your virtual dashboard.
Access to the IntelliBoard Service may require you to download and install certain software applications (the “Customer Software”) which is covered under a License (below). The License may also be presented to anyone downloading the Customer Software and for the avoidance of doubt, in the event of any conflict between the License contained in this Agreement and any license accepted to download the Customer Software, the License in this Agreement shall prevail.

Customer agrees, to the extent applicable and expressly subject to the Arbitration provisions below, to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the State of Connecticut in circumstances where this Agreement permits litigation in court.
Arbitration. IntelliBoard and Customer agree that any dispute that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to the Customer’s use of or access to the IntelliBoard Service, any validity, interpretation, breach, enforcement, or termination of this Agreement, or otherwise relating to IntelliBoard in any way (collectively, “Covered Dispute Matters”) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section 14.8.
- (a) Applicable Law. You and IntelliBoard agree that United States federal law including the Federal Arbitration Act, and (to the extent not inconsistent with or pre-empted by federal law) the laws of the State of Connecticut, USA, without regard to conflict of laws principles, will govern all Covered Dispute Matters.
- (b) Arbitration. You and IntelliBoard agree that this Agreement and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act applies in all cases and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. Any Covered Dispute Matter must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (including utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel). You and IntelliBoard agree that the arbitrator shall not conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals. You and IntelliBoard agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, international, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable or a particular claim is subject to arbitration. You and We agree that judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- (c) Arbitrator’s Award. You and IntelliBoard agree that for matters where the relief sought is over $5,000, the arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. You and IntelliBoard agree that the arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
- (d) Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 14.8(e) below, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by you or IntelliBoard and 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 that party's individual claim. To the extent that you or IntelliBoard have sought public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration after the party seeking public injunctive relief has first prevailed in arbitration. The parties agree that the litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
(e) Exceptions. There are only two exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate:
- (i) if either party reasonably believes that the other party has in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights of the other party, the party whose rights have been violated may seek injunctive or other appropriate interim relief in any court of competent jurisdiction;
- (ii) each party will retain the right to seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of the jurisdiction of such courts.
- (f) Costs of Arbitration. You and IntelliBoard agree that payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this agreement to arbitrate.
- (g) Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless You and IntelliBoard agree otherwise and except as described in Section 14.8(e)(ii), in the event that the agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to You or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, or because you are an international user to which this agreement to arbitrate does not apply, You agree (except as otherwise provided by law) that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and IntelliBoard must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the State of Connecticut. You and IntelliBoard agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Connecticut for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE (i) TO A COURT TRIAL (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS PROVIDED ABOVE), (ii) TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING FILED AGAINST US AND/OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES, EVEN IF ARBITRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, AND (iii) TO A TRIAL BY JURY.
