Peterson Cultural Style Indicator™
This Peterson Cultural Style Indicator™ (“PCSI”) License Agreement (“License”) is made between you and Across Cultures, LLC. (“AC”), and allows you to complete the PCSI, which is a 25-question online basic education tool offering interactive feedback and published by AC on acrosscultures.com (the “Website”). The PCSI is provided to you, for your personal use only, on the terms stated herein. AC reserves all rights to the Website and to each of its component parts and their contents.
2. COPYRIGHT OWNERSHIP, TRADEMARK, AND OTHER RESTRICTIONS
Peterson Cultural Style Indicator™ and Across Cultures® are registered trademarks of Brooks Peterson.
“PCSI” and “AC” are abbreviations used only for the purposes of this License.
AC owns or is licensee of this entire Website and its components, and of the PCSI and all PCSI reports and/or results available here.
You may not yourself, nor may you assist or authorize others to reverse engineer, compile, disassemble, or otherwise reduce the Website or any of its contents to human perceivable form; modify, adapt, rent, lease, transfer, sublicense, assign, loan, or sell the Website or any of its components; or create derivative works based on any part of the system, including without limitation the Website or any part of the PCSI and/or its report and/or results it contains or any part thereof.
3. PRICING, RETURNS, and REFUND TERMS
Pricing of the PCSI is subject to change without notice. Pricing examples (e.g. for buying multiple PCSIs) or promotions may be posted in various places within the Website (including the example below) or in AC’s other promotional materials, but the final and current pricing is that which is clearly indicated at the time of purchase using the PayPal payment link on the PCSI “Buy” page.
Here is how pricing works, using the current PCSI price in effect at the time of this writing (this price may change in the future):
For 1 person: 1 x $14 = $14
For 3 people: 3 x $14 = $42
For 25 people: 25 x $14 = $350
For 1 person to complete the PCSI 2 times: 2 x $14 = $28
For 10 people to complete the PCSI 2 times each: 20 x $14 = $280
Users can log back in as often as they like to see their previous score report(s) and compare themselves to as many countries as they wish.
PCSI returns are not possible.
No full or partial refunds are given for PCSIs, whether completed, incomplete, or partially completed. No full or partial refunds are given based on PCSI price changes. Refunds are not provided when inactive accounts with unused tests are deleted as part of database maintenance (see next section).
4. TWO-YEAR TIME LIMIT FOR INACTIVE USERS AND GROUPS, AND OTHER DATABASE DELETION AND MAINTENANCE
AC may, at its discretion, conduct database maintenance which may include modifying or deleting groups and/or user accounts: that have remained inactive (when a user has not signed in for at least two years – this policy was first posted in May 2018), that have not been promptly validated, that appear to be spam, or that require changes or deletion for various security and database maintenance reasons. This includes deleting inactive users (who have not signed in for at least two years – this policy was first posted in May 2018) even if tests remain in their account. The names of deleted users will no longer appear in group reports.
5. AC’S RIGHT TO LIMITED USE OF DATA
You acknowledge that the norms, weights, measures, and other components of the scoring system for the PCSI available on the Website belong to and are valuable trade secrets of AC and/or its licensors. You agree that AC may, without obligation to you, collectively (but always without disclosing your identity), evaluate and/or process data, including your PCSI answers, for AC’s use in validating and improving the Website and the underlying instrument it scores, and/or for research, database enhancement, and AC’s and/or its licensors’ other research, educational, and/or commercial purposes. Nothing in this license requires you to make any disclosure of information in any form that would be in violation of any applicable law.
A valid email is required for initial registration. For your privacy, the email address you provide will be used only for registration and account maintenance.
6. LIMITED WARRANTY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
AC warrants that it will make reasonable efforts to assure that this Website remains online and functioning normally. AC does not, however, warrant that access to this Website will be uninterrupted or that its operation will always be error free.
Except as provided above, AC makes no representations or warranties with respect to the Website or its operation, express or implied, and including but not limited to any warranty of quality, performance, merchantability, or fitness for any particular purpose.
Licensee understands and agrees that AC’s liability to licensee for breach of this warranty, regardless of legal theory, shall be limited to direct damages and shall not in any circumstance exceed the return of the amount of fees licensee, or licensee’s sponsoring business entity, has paid to AC for use of the Website.
7. REVISIONS TO THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT
Although most changes are likely to be minor, this License may be revised periodically. This License was last modified March 2021. There is a link to this License on the bottom of all pages in the Website and you are encouraged to revisit this page to stay aware of any changes as AC will not post further notices or require further click-to-agree actions. Your continued use of the Website and PCSI constitutes your agreement to the terms of this License and any future revisions.
This License is offered to you only on the express terms and conditions stated in this License, and your acceptance of this License is limited to the specific, express terms stated in this License. This License will be governed by and construed under the laws of Minnesota, except for that body of law dealing with conflicts of law.
If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, it is to that extent deemed omitted, and the balance of the Agreement shall remain enforceable.
