We may change the requirements for Compatible Devices from time to time and, in some cases, whether a device is (or remains) a Compatible Device may depend on software or systems provided or maintained by the device manufacturer or other third parties.

17. Membership Subscription to Classes
Billing for Membership
We offer membership subscription-based access to our Service.
Memberships, which provide you with access to our Service, are billed on a periodic basis as specified at the time of purchase (e.g., monthly, quarterly, or yearly). The Membership fee is the amount stated on our Website. Your Membership subscription will continue in effect on a recurring basis corresponding to the term of your subscription period unless and until you cancel your subscription or your account or the Service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to this Agreement. If a membership is cancelled or terminated before the end of the applicable billing cycle, we will not reimburse the Member for the remainder of that paid month. Membership fees are non-refundable. Membership fees may be subject to taxation in accordance with applicable law. We reserve the right to change the Membership fee at any time; however, any such changes will apply only to new and renewal Membership terms. The term of Membership may be monthly, quarterly or yearly. We will charge the credit or debit card (or other payment method such as PayPal) you designate when you first sign up for the then-current Membership fee (plus applicable taxes) until the Membership is canceled. If your payment method is declined, you must provide us with a new card or payment method or your Membership will be canceled. If you provide us with a new card or payment method and are successfully charged, your Membership period will be based on the original sign-up date and not the date of the successful charge.
Automatic Renewal Membership
Your Membership shall automatically renew for each subscription period (an “Automatic Renewal Membership”). Automatic Renewal Membership fees will be billed at the end of each subscription period and automatically to the credit or debit card you provided when you signed up for the Membership or the form of payment we currently have on file for you, in the amount of the then current Membership fee, approximately one day prior to your Membership expiration date. If we materially change any of the terms of the Automatic Renewal Membership, we will provide you with notice of any such changes.
The Automatic Renewal Membership will continue until you cancel. You may cancel your Automatic Renewal Membership online at any time from your “My Account” page or by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members may cancel their membership at any time. Membership must be canceled prior to the renewal date in order to avoid additional membership charges. See our Cancellation Policy for more information.
Pricing for Membership Subscriptions
When you purchase a subscription for a Membership, you will be charged at the rate applicable at the time of your subscription. If we later increase the price of the subscription for new Members, any such increase shall become effective at the beginning of your next billing cycle.
Free Trial for Membership to Classes
We require that you provide a valid credit or debit card at the time you register for a free trial to ensure that you have continued access to your membership after the expiration of the free trial period (“Free Trial”). We will not bill your account until the Free Trial has expired and provided that you have not cancelled your account during the Free Trial period. You may only use a Free Trial once. We reserve the right to terminate any account that is using or trying to use more than one Free Trial.
Special Prepaid Membership Packages
From time to time, special prepaid membership packages will be available for purchase at varying lengths of time as specified at the time of purchase. Special prepaid memberships may be recurring and may renew automatically.
18. Term and Termination
This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect for so long as it is posted on the Website. You may terminate your Membership at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the Website under Subscriptions: Cancel Subscription or by contacting Customer Support at email@example.com. For more details, see our Cancellation Policy.
If you cancel your Membership before the end of the applicable billing cycle, your account will be cancelled as of the following month. You will not receive a refund for the current billing period. We reserve the right to terminate your account or your access to the Service immediately, with or without notice to you, and without liability to you, as provided by the terms of this Agreement. Unless we have exercised our right to terminate your Membership, you can re-activate your Membership at any time by contacting us.
19. Disclaimer of Warranties
You agree that your use of the Service shall be at your sole risk. The SERVICE IS provided ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS and without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Vigor & Trim, its officers, directors, employees, and agents disclaim all warranties, express or implied, in connection with the Service, and your use thereof INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE, THE WEBSITE, AND ANY THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE WITH WHICH THEY ARE LINKED.
Vigor & Trim makes no warranties or representations about the accuracy or completeness of the Content or the content of any sites linked to the Service and assumes no liability or responsibility or any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of Content, (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to and use of the Service, (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of Vigor & Trim servers and/or any and all personal information and/or financial information stored therein, (iv) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Service, (v) any bugs, viruses, Trojan horses, or the like which may be transmitted to or through the Service by any third party, and/or (vi) any errors or omissions in any Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Service whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not Vigor & Trim is advised of the possibility of such damages.
20. Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL (A) VIGOR & TRIM BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM YOUR DISPLAYING, COPYING, UPLOADING OR DOWNLOADING ANY CONTENT TO OR FROM THE WEBSITE OR SERVICE, (B) VIGOR & TRIM BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, EXTRAORDINARY, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF DATA, REVENUE, PROFITS, USE OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE) ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SERVICE OR THE WEBSITE, EVEN IF VIGOR & TRIM KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND (C) VIGOR & TRIM’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES AND THE WEBSITE, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO VIGOR & TRIM FOR THE SERVICES AT ISSUE IN THE PRIOR 12 MONTHS. THIS LIMITATION IS CUMULATIVE AND WILL NOT BE INCREASED BY THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE INCIDENT OR CLAIM. VIGOR & TRIM DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY OF ANY KIND DERIVED FROM ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS.
You must agree to our Liability Waiver before using site content.
21. Waiver of Liability for Personal Injury and Indemnity
In consideration of being permitted to become a Member and participate in the Service, you agree to assume full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which you might incur as a result of participating in the Service, including those which may result from the negligence of a teacher.
You knowingly, voluntarily and expressly waive any “Claim” (as defined below) you may have against Vigor & Trim, its subsidiaries, affiliates, business divisions, subcontractors, officers, directors, employees, teachers, independent contractors, representatives and agents, (each, a “Released Party”) that you may sustain as a result of participating in the Service even if the Claim arises from the negligence of a Released Party or anyone else.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Released Party from any loss, cost, or liability incurred in defending any Claim made by you or anyone making a Claim on your behalf, even if the Claim is alleged to or did result from the negligence of a Released Party or anyone else. “Claim” includes but is not limited to any and all liabilities, claims, demands, expenses, fees, legal actions, rights of actions for damages, personal injury, mental suffering and distress, or death that you may suffer or your spouse, children or unborn child may suffer (including any legal fees or expenses) in connection with participation in the Service.
You, your heirs or legal representatives forever release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue any Released Party for any Claim caused by any negligence or any other acts of a Released Party.
You acknowledge that you have carefully read this section of the Agreement and fully understand its contents. You voluntarily and knowingly agree to the provisions contained within this section. You are aware that you are giving up substantial rights, including your right to sue and certain legal rights your heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators and assigns may have against any Released Party.
22. Consent to Recording
You understand that your image may be recorded in a video which may be displayed on the Website and used in connection with the Service. You hereby consent to the use of your image that may appear on the Website and on the Service.
23. Exclusions and Limitations
Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, in certain jurisdictions, some of the above limitations of liability may not apply to you; all other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Vigor & Trim, its subsidiaries, affiliates, business divisions, subcontractors, officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, teachers, representatives and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement; or (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, trademark, intellectual property, or privacy right. This indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the Service.
25. Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver
We encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have concerns or complaints about the Service. Generally, customer complaints can be satisfactorily resolved in this way. If we cannot resolve your concerns informally, disputes between us shall be resolved pursuant to this Section.
You and Vigor & Trim agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and whether the dispute or claim may be arbitrated) relating to the Service including, without limitation, all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of your relationship with Vigor & Trim, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, that arose either before or during this, or any prior, version of this Agreement or that may arise after termination of this Agreement.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to limited review by courts. Under this Agreement, arbitrators can award the same individual relief affecting individual parties that a court can award, including damages and an award of attorneys’ fees, if the applicable law allows. BY AGREEING TO RESOLVE DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AND VIGOR & TRIM AGREE TO EACH UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR COURT. Instead of arbitration, either party may bring an individual action in a small claims court for disputes or claims that are within the scope of the small claims court’s authority.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. The arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes. Arbitration will proceed at a location that the arbitrator selects within 50 miles of San Mateo, California, unless you and Vigor & Trim agree otherwise.
The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Vigor & Trim will pay as much of your arbitration filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation. Vigor & Trim also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration. However, Vigor & Trim will not pay your share of the arbitration fees if the arbitrator finds that either your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, as measured by the standards of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b).
YOU AND VIGOR & TRIM AGREE THAT ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR VIGOR & TRIM WILL BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND WILL NOT BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class, representative, or private attorney general proceeding. You and Vigor & Trim agree to seek only such individual relief – whether in the form of individual damages, an individualized injunction, or other non-monetary individual relief – as is necessary to resolve any individual injury that either you or Vigor & Trim has suffered or may suffer.
The requirement that claims be brought in binding arbitration only in an individual capacity and not as a representative, private attorney general, or class member (“Class Action Waiver”) is non-severable. If the Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, with the exception of the following sentence: In the event the Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable, or in the event the agreement to arbitrate is found to not apply to a dispute, then such action between you and Vigor & Trim shall proceed in the federal or state courts located in San Mateo County, California.
Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, Vigor & Trim agrees that if it makes any change to this arbitration provision, such change will not be applicable to any dispute to which you had previously provided notice to Vigor & Trim.
If you do not want to be bound to this agreement to arbitrate, you must opt out of it within 30 days of it first being accepted by you. To opt out of this agreement to arbitrate, you must send a letter or postcard to Vigor & Trim at P.O. Box 1821, El Granada, CA 94018, and state that you do not want to be bound by this arbitration agreement.
This Agreement and your use of the Service are governed by the laws of the State of California, subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, without regard to its choice of law provisions.
This Agreement expressly excludes and disclaims the terms of the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, which shall not apply to any transaction conducted through or otherwise involving the Service.
26. Notice of Claimed Copyright Infringement
Vigor & Trim respects the intellectual property of others and asks that users of the Service do the same. We may immediately suspend and/or terminate access to the Service by any user who is alleged to have infringed on the intellectual property rights of Vigor & Trim or of a third party, or otherwise violated any intellectual property laws or regulations. Our policy is to investigate any allegations of intellectual property infringement brought to our attention.

(b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
(c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Vigor & Trim to locate the material;
(d) information reasonably sufficient to permit Vigor & Trim to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
(e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
(f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Counter-Notification to Claimed Copyright Infringement
If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against certain Content, you may make a counter- notification in writing and include the following information:
(a) your physical or electronic signature;
(b) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
(c) a statement by you under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification; and
(d) your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you are located (or in the State of California, U.S.A., if you reside outside of the U.S.), and that you will accept service of process from the person who filed the notice of copyright infringement or an agent of such person.
If Vigor & Trim receives a valid counter-notification, it may reinstate the removed or disabled Content. Please note that any person who knowingly makes material misrepresentations in a notification of claimed infringement or in a counter-notification may be liable for damages.
You may not assign this Agreement, the Service, the Content or any rights and licenses granted hereunder. However, the foregoing may be fully assigned by Vigor & Trim to any person or party without providing you with notice.
28. Waiver and Severability of Terms
The failure of Vigor & Trim to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court to be invalid, the parties agree that the court shall give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in such provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
29. Statute of Limitations
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
30. Governing Law and Venue
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and Vigor & Trim that arises in whole or in part from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in San Mateo County, California.
If you provide any comments, questions, suggestions, or feedback to Vigor & Trim suggesting or recommending changes to the Service (“Feedback”), all of such Feedback is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary. You hereby assign all right, title, and interest in Feedback to Vigor & Trim is free to use, without any attribution or compensation to you, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property and proprietary rights contained within the Feedback, for any purpose whatsoever.
The amounts payable under this Agreement are exclusive of value added tax, sales, taxes and similar taxes. You shall be responsible for payment of all of such taxes if any, levied on amounts payable to Vigor & Trim pursuant to this Agreement.
