  1. General.   You acknowledge that Center For Yoga may charge a fee for the use of any aspect of the Service, provided that Center For Yoga notifies you of any such fee before you incur it.  Subject to the foregoing, you agree to pay any fees incurred by you.  Member agrees to pay for all products ordered through the Website using the payment method indicated, and provides Center For Yoga and its third party payment processors express authorization to charge said fees to the Member’s payment provider at time of purchase or renewal.  Fees owed depend on the specific type and quantity of Center For Yoga products, services, information, or deliverables (collectively “Deliverables”) ordered.  Payment of fees shall not be contingent on any events other than the delivery of the ordered Deliverables.  Any attorney fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in collection of delinquent undisputed amounts shall be the responsibility of and paid for by Member.  If payment is not current, Center For Yoga may immediately cease to provide any and all Deliverables to the Member. 

 

It is the Member’s responsibility to promptly provide Center For Yoga with any contact information changes or updates (including phone number, email address, physical address, etc.).  Account updates should be made online via the “My Account” section, once member has logged into the Service.  Center For Yoga does not validate all credit card information required by the Member’s payment provider to secure payment.  

 

Orders may be charged, fulfilled and processed by an authorized third-party partner of Center For Yoga, in which case any refunds, charge-backs, returns or product substitutions will be subject to the discretion and policies of such third party provider.  Center For Yoga does not store or retain your credit card information; such payment fulfillment functions are performed by our third-party service providers MINDBODY Inc. and Zenrez Corporation, and your submission of your information to such providers is subject to the online policies of the applicable provider which processed your order.    

 

All sales are final, non-cancelable and non-refundable except as expressly set forth in this Agreement or as otherwise determined by us in our sole discretion.

  1. Subscription Fees.  Center For Yoga charges a monthly subscription fee for your ability to have unlimited access to our classes.  Depending upon the number of classes which a Member signs up for and attends, monthly subscriptions may, in total, customarily average less than class pricing purchased on an a la carte basis.  Subscriptions for annual, semi-annual, and multi-year subscriptions may, in total, customarily average less per month during such subscription period than the cost of a month-to-month subscription, provided the Member remains a subscriber for the full time period of such subscription.       

 

iii. Subscription Renewal and Cancellation.  Subscriptions will automatically renew using the Member’s current credit card account number unless Member cancels their subscription prior to the renewal date for such subscription by visiting the “My Account” section and selecting the “Cancel” option. 

 

In the event of a price change, we will attempt to notify you in advance by sending an email to the email address you have registered for your account.  If you do not wish to accept a price change, you may cancel your subscription in accordance with the instructions for cancellation below.  If you do not cancel your subscription after the price change and prior to the start of your new subscription period, your subscription will be renewed at the price in effect at the time of the renewal, without any additional action by you, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for these amounts.  

 

You may cancel your subscription at any time.  All refunds that may be associated with a cancellation will customarily be processed within ten (10) business days. Prepaid fees for annual, semi-annual, and multi-year subscriptions will be refunded based on the number of months remaining on the contract period, beginning with the month following receipt of written cancellation, but may be subject to adjustment according to current product pricing and subject to adjustment for any incentives or discounts provided for said prepayment. To request a refund, please contact Center For Yoga at info@centerforyogala.com.  

 

Once the cancellation is processed, a confirmation email will be sent via the Member’s email account on record with Center For Yoga.  If Member has a question about a cancellation, Member should contact Center For Yoga at info@centerforyogala.com.

  1. Taxes. Member will be responsible for any applicable sales or use tax, duties, or other governmental taxes or fees payable in connection with the Member’s sale or purchase.  If you do not pay such sales or other tax or fee on a transaction, you will be responsible for such taxes or fees in the event that they are later determined to be payable on such sale, and Center For Yoga reserves the right to collect such taxes or other fees from you at any time.

  1. Disputes.
  2. Informal Resolution.  If a dispute arises between You and Center For Yoga, you agree to first provide Center For Yoga with notice of your complaint via email to info@centerforyogala.com so that the parties may attempt to resolve the dispute informally within sixty (60) days from the date your complaint is received.  
  3. Applicable Law and Venue.  Except as otherwise provided herein, You and Center For Yoga each agree that these Terms of Use and the relationship between the parties shall be governed by, construed, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.  Except as provided below, You and Center For Yoga agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California, including for any action seeking to compel arbitration or vacate an arbitral award, and consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. The parties agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts.
  4. Arbitration Agreement.  

(1) Arbitration.  

With the exception of class actions, small claims court filings, or actions for preliminary injunctive relief (as further discussed below), any other dispute of any kind between you and Center For Yoga arising under this Agreement or in connection with your use of the Service (“Dispute(s)”), if unresolved through the informal process outlined above, will be resolved by binding arbitration in Los Angeles County, California.  If you are an individual consumer using the Service primarily for personal reasons (“Individual Consumer”), as opposed to an individual accessing the Service for business purposes, and you are located within the United States, you may alternatively select your state of residence as the place of arbitration, but all other actions remain subject to the venue and choice of law provisions in Section 19.B.

The arbitrator presiding over a Dispute will be a retired judge or justice of any state or federal court with substantial experience in the subject matter relevant to the matter in dispute and will follow California law, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules, in adjudicating the dispute.  BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU HAVE TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL.  

The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

The parties agree that the arbitrator presiding over a Dispute will be instructed, whenever practicable, to resolve threshold legal issues by way of motions filed by the parties. The parties also agree that they will follow JAMS’ streamlined arbitration rules and procedures then in effect in arbitrating any Dispute, except to the extent that the JAMS rules are inconsistent with this Section 19.C including the class action waiver described below. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com.

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms of Use, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Use is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity, other than class relief. The arbitrator’s award will be written, and binding, on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you are an Individual Consumer, SMBS will pay all arbitration administrative fees and fees for the arbitrator’s services, other than the $250 filing fee required for you to initiate a claim.

If you are an Individual Consumer and the claim you wish to assert against us is for less than $10,000 then, at your election, (i) the arbitration may proceed in-person, by telephone, or by written briefs or (ii) you may in lieu of arbitration bring your claim in small claims court. If either party files a claim in state or federal court that is required by these Terms of Use to have been brought to arbitration, then the other party will be entitled to such party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in successfully compelling arbitration.

Both parties reserve the right to seek a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order from a federal or state court located in Los Angeles County, California. However, after such request for relief has been adjudicated by such court, the remainder of the Dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration as set forth herein.

 

(2) Class Action Waiver.  

 

YOU AND CENTER FOR YOGA AGREE THAT DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND THAT ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER THESE TERMS OF USE OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  The parties further agree that they will not participate in any class action (existing or future) brought by any third party arising under this Agreement or in connection with the Service. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration hereunder can proceed on a class-wide basis, then such class action is not subject to arbitration and must be litigated in state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California.

 

(3) Opt-Out.  

 

IF YOU ARE A NEW USER OF THE SERVICE, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REJECT THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE PROVISION (“OPT-OUT”) BY EMAILING US AN OPT-OUT NOTICE TO INFO@CENTERFORYOGALA.COM (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”) OR VIA U.S. MAIL TO: Center For Yoga, Attn: Arbitration Opt-Out, 230 ½ N. Larchmont Blvd., Los Angeles, CA  90004.  THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS FOR THE FIRST TIME.  IF YOU ARE NOT A NEW USER OF THE SERVICE, YOU HAVE UNTIL THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE POSTING OF THE NEW TERMS TO SUBMIT AN ARBITRATION OPT-OUT NOTICE.

 

In order to opt-out, you must email your name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), and email address(es) associated with your User account(s) to which the opt-out applies, and the date you started using the Service to: info@centerforyogala.com.  This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate.  If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms of Use and its Disputes Section will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
