fitDEGREE claims a copyright in all proprietary and copyrightable text, graphics and computer code on the website, including, but not limited, to the design of the website and the location and arrangement of all materials on the website. fitDEGREE also claims a copyright in all proprietary and copyrightable text, graphics and computer code associated with the Services.

You are welcome to request permission by email from fitDEGREE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
fitDEGREE respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects users of the Service to do the same. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law (including the Digital Millennium Copyright or “DMCA” at 17 U.S.C. §512) and are properly provided to us. If you believe that your Content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please review the DMCA to ensure your compliance before you send us any request to remove allegedly-infringing Content (“Takedown Notice”). Each Takedown Notice must be in English and include the following information:
Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed.
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. Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (e.g., a detailed uniform resource locator or “URL”).
Your contact information, including your postal address, telephone number, and an email address.
A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the Content or other material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
A statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf.
On our receipt of a Takedown Notice, we may publish the Takedown Notice, or provide a copy of the Takedown Notice to the user that uploaded or provided the Content. For any Takedown Notice that is subject to the provisions of the DMCA, the original provider of the Content may have the right to send a notice to us (“Counter Notice”) demanding that the Content be restored to the Service.
In compliance with the DMCA or other applicable law, we may implement any Takedown Notice by removing the accused Content or other material from public view on the Service, and we may implement any Counter Notice by restoring the accused Content or other material to public view on the Service.
Regardless of the DMCA or other applicable laws or regulations, we reserve the right to remove Content alleged to be infringing without prior notice, at our sole discretion, and without liability to you or anyone else.

Sharing Content & Information
You can control the privacy settings in your individual profile. Other than certain private information provided to create a user profile (email address, password), the information provided is considered public.
If your account/profile has been established by your Club or studio for use in accordance with the Agreement you entered into with the Club (that is, you have received your log-in credentials from the Club directly), your Club has collected and shared your Personal Information with fitDEGREE in order to provide you with the Services. fitDEGREE uses the information provided by the Club to create your log-in credentials.
You can also set up your profile/account with fitDEGREE directly, in which case you receive the log-in credentials from fitDEGREE directly and in which circumstance fitDEGREE does not receive any Personal Information about you by the Club exporting member information to fitDEGREE.
fitDEGREE Safety & Account Registration/ Security
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Service and for any activities or actions under your user name and password. Therefore, you must not share or disclose your password with anyone. fitDEGREE recommends that you should use a “strong” password for each account, e.g., a password that is not a dictionary term or other word, and combines numbers, upper case letters, lower case letters, and non-alphanumeric characters. You acknowledge that passwords may be compromised no matter how strong the password. fitDEGREE is not liable to you for any loss or damage arising from any third party accessing or using your account without your permission, regardless of how the third party accesses your account.
Please take precautions to protect your user name and password, and contact us at email@example.com if you believe your account has been accessed by an unauthorized person or compromised in any fashion.
Protecting Other People's Rights
We respect other people's rights and expect you to do the same. You will not post content or take any action on fitDEGREE that infringes or violates someone else's rights or otherwise violates the law. We can remove any content or information you post on fitDEGREE if we believe, based solely on our judgment and within our sole and exclusive discretion, that it violates this Statement, our policies or the spirit of the fitDEGREE community.
If we remove your content for any reason, and you believe we removed it by mistake, you have the ability to appeal that decision by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which explains why you believe that fitDEGREE should permit the content. It is within the sole and exclusive judgment of fitDEGREE whether the content is ultimately determined to be re-posted. If you repeatedly infringe other people's legal rights, we reserve the right to disable your account.
Links to Third Party Resources
To the extent that fitDEGREE or any user or Club provides resources that can be accessed with hypertext links from the Services that are not under the direct control of fitDEGREE, fitDEGREE is not responsible for the contents of those third party resources. These links are merely provided as a courtesy and convenience for our users and visitors. The use of a link on the Services does not imply any recommendation, approval or enforcement of third party resources or their business by fitDEGREE.
You may terminate your use of the Services at any time for any reason. In the event of any termination, fitDEGREE shall be entitled to payment for the Services in accordance with this ToS. At termination, you may request that fitDEGREE transfer or delete your Personal Information. Such request must be made within sixty (60) days of termination.
Our rights: We reserve the right at all times (but will not have an obligation) to remove, or refuse to collect or distribute any Content on the Service, to suspend or terminate users, and to reclaim user names and change passwords without liability to you. We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any data, information or other Content as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce these Terms and the applicable Club Agreement, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of fitDEGREE, its users and the public.
Entire Agreement: These Terms, together with the Privacy Notice, which is incorporated herein by this reference as if set forth herein in its entirety, constitute the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding the Service, and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of these Terms and the Privacy Notice.
Amendments to these Terms: We reserve the right to modify, supplement or replace these Terms, effective upon no less than thirty (30) days prior written notice to the email address we have for you. If we have no email address for you, then the modified Terms will take effect thirty (30) days after we post them on our website at www.fitdegree.com or our mobile application. Your use of the Service thirty (30) days after any such update or modification shall confirm your agreement to the modified version of the Terms. If you do not want to agree to changes to the Terms, you may terminate your account with us, or otherwise terminate your use of the Service, prior to the modified Terms taking effect, in which case the prior set of Terms in effect as of the date of termination shall continue to control any disputes or other issues that may arise regarding your use of the Service. Only modifications, supplements or replacements of these Terms as stated in this provision shall be valid and effective to amend the Terms. Any other purported amendments shall be void and of no force or effect.
No Informal Waivers, Agreements or Representations: Any failure by any party to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not waive any right to act with respect to that breach or any subsequent breaches. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by any party, fitDEGREE or its Affiliates shall be deemed legally binding on the other party or its Affiliates, unless expressly and specifically documented in a writing that refers to the Terms and states expressly the intent to modify or supplement the Terms, and that an authorized officer of fitDEGREE has executed physically or electronically.
Assignment and Delegation: You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms. Any purported assignment and delegation by you shall be ineffective. We may freely assign or delegate some or all of our rights and obligations under the Terms, Club Agreement and Privacy Notice, effective on sending a notice to you at the email address we have for you, or if we have no email address for you, by posting a notice of assignment on the Service’s website at.
Choice of Law/ Governing Law & Arbitration Clause
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the law of the State of New Jersey, and the federal laws of the United States of America, without regard to or application of any conflict of laws provisions or principles. Any dispute between us or arising out of these Terms, their performance, or the Service shall be determined by one arbitrator in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Commercial Arbitration Rules. The language of the arbitration shall be English. To accommodate parties and witnesses that may be distant from each other, each hearing shall be conducted and all testimony shall be entered by audio conference or video conference. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and may be entered and enforced in any court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction. Proceedings will be conducted on an individual basis. Neither you, your Club, nor fitDEGREE may seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another proceeding without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If this class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and will be administered by the AAA pursuant to its Supplementary Rules for Class Arbitrations, with the remaining parts proceeding in individual arbitration.
If any provision of these Terms is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the parties with respect to the provisions within the context of the overall Terms. If a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected.
