This Acceptable Use Policy, together with the ClassFlow Cookies Policy, ClassFlow Terms of Service, and ClassFlow Privacy Policy, form a legally binding Contract between you and us (collectively referred to herein as the “Contract”).  Please read them carefully before you start to use our Service.  By using our Service, you indicate that you accept the ClassFlow Terms of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, Cookies Policy, and this Privacy Policy, and you agree to be bound by and abide by the terms of all of them.  If you do not agree to these terms and policies, please do not use the Service.  Any terms we use here without defining them shall have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Service.  In the event of any inconsistency between the Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy, the Terms of Service shall take precedence.
