Welcome to the Creativebug network of websites and Applications (the “Site”).
Thank you for your interest in using our services. We provide our Registered Users with access to our Site and to the Content by streaming it over the internet.
Please review the following Terms and Conditions of Use – Enterprise Users (the “Terms”) carefully before using the Site. These Terms contain an arbitration clause, a class action waiver, and other important information about your rights and obligations, as well as limitations and exclusions that may apply to you.

Whenever we use the words“we,”, “our,”, “Creativebug,”, “us,” or “Company,” we are referring to Creativebug, LLC and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates.
- “Artists” refers to instructors who provide Content for the Site.
- “Content” refers to arts and crafts related multi-media content, including video classes, audio, graphics, photos, text, special features, and a forum for blogs and postings.
- “Include,” “includes” or “including” means “including, without limitation”.

2) Binding Agreement
These Terms explain the respective rights and limitations of us, you, and other Registered Users when using the Site, Services, and Content.
You agree to these Terms by becoming a Registered User, or by using our Site. In doing so: (a) you represent and warrant that the registration information you provide is complete and accurate, (b) you consent to be bound by, and become a party to this agreement, and (c) you agree to keep your registration information current.
Please carefully read these Terms before you register or use any Services. If you do not agree with these Terms or cannot comply with the Terms, then do not use the Site or any Services and do not register or use any Services. By registering on our Site, it means that you have agreed to these Terms.
3) Changes to Terms and Conditions
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms at any time, effective 10 days after posting of the revised Terms on the Site. Your continued use of the Site or any Services after such posting or notification means you accept all revisions. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you must stop your use of this Site and all Services.
4) Arbitration of Disputes
Any dispute or claim arising out of, or relating in any way to, these Terms, your visit(s) to, or use of, the Site, the Services, the Content, or any other matter with us (“Dispute”) must be resolved through binding arbitration, rather than in court. In lieu of arbitration, either you or we may assert individual claims in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply.
Any party who intends to seek arbitration must first try in good faith to resolve the Dispute by providing to the other party a written notice describing the facts and circumstances of the Dispute and the specific relief sought, and any supporting documentation. The notice must be mailed via certified mail to us at: Creativebug, c/o Jo-Ann Stores, LLC, Attn: Law Department, 5555 Darrow Road, Hudson, OH 44236; or to you at your email address in your online profile. If we are unable to reach settlement within 60 days, then, upon notice to the other party, any party may begin arbitration.
If you are a resident of the United States or any other jurisdiction except Canada, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement, and that any arbitration under this agreement will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and pursuant to the then-applicable AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures, which are available at www.adr.org, or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If you are a resident of Canada, you agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, will be resolved by the Arbitration Rules of the ADR Institute of Canada, Inc., and that the arbitration will be in English.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis similar damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages). The arbitrator’s award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, in person in the county where you live, or at another mutually agreed location. Unless the arbitrator finds some or all of your claims to be frivolous, we will pay all the fees of the arbitrator, and we agree not to seek attorneys’ fees or costs from you. We will pay your attorney fees, not to exceed $5,000, if we are ordered to do so by the arbitrator. In determining whether an action is frivolous, the arbitrator may consider if we have offered you a full refund of the sum you paid for items you purchased from us, or if we have otherwise offered full relief to you in relation to your individual claim.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if in any manner you have violated or threatened to violate any of our intellectual property rights, we may bring suit in any state or federal court in Delaware or Ohio, or, if you are a resident of Canada, in the Courts of the Province of Ontario sitting in the City of Toronto. You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in these courts.
This section will survive after these Terms terminate or your use of the Site ends.
5) Class Action Waiver
We and you agree that any Dispute resolution proceedings must be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, collective, or representative action. If this class action waiver is found to be void or unenforceable, the Dispute will be resolved in state or federal court rather than in arbitration. You further agree that you will not be a member of any putative or actual class in a class action brought by anyone else, nor will you seek to become a class representative.
This section will survive after these Terms terminate or your use of the Site ends.
