A Terms of Service (“ToS” or “Terms”) is a statement of rules and a contract between the provider and users which a user must agree to abide by in order to use a service. This ToS was created and prepared by fitDEGREE, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“fitDEGREE”, the “Company”, “us”, “we”, or “our”). Please read this ToS carefully before using, visiting www.fitdegree.com, visiting or using our mobile website, any other web-based platforms, and the fitDEGREE Administrator Platform (defined below) (collectively, the “Websites”), or downloading and using the fitDEGREE Mobile Application (the “fitDEGREE App”) (collectively, the Websites, fitDEGREE App and any and all services provided by fitDEGREE can be referred to as the “Services” or the “fitDEGREE Services”).
The fitDEGREE Administrator Platform means fitDEGREE Software hosted by fitDEGREE, operated by fitDEGREE on a “Software as a Service” (“SaaS”) basis, and accessed and used by each Club and Club’s Authorized Users (as defined below). The Administrator Platform is accessible online and through the fitDEGREE App for the Club’s and/or Club’s Authorized User input of user data, and to generate and receive data analytics and output.
Authorized User means each person who is authorized by the Club to have administrative privileges on the fitDEGREE App and the Administrator Platform and who accesses or uses any Administrative Accounts (as defined below) of the Club with fitDEGREE. An Authorized User may be an employee, contractor, consultant, or other agent of the Club.
The administrative functionality of the Mobile Application and Administrator Platform is designed to be administered only by Authorized Users. fitDEGREE provides the Club with two levels of accounts:
Master Account: fitDEGREE provides the Club with one or more account and login that grants full, unrestricted access to the Services for one or more specified Authorized Users (“Master Account”).
Secondary Account: At the Club’s discretion, the Club may assign other Authorized Users with an account and login that restricts access to certain aspects of the Services (“Secondary Account”, together with the “Master Account”, the “Administrative Account(s)”).
By using or accessing the Services, you agree to this ToS, as updated from time to time by fitDEGREE. If fitDEGREE makes changes to the ToS, we will notify you of the change as described below under “Additional Terms”. If we make changes to policies, guidelines or other terms referenced in or incorporated by this Statement, we may provide notice on the Websites and/or fitDEGREE App. Your continued use of the Services, following notice of the changes to our terms, policies or guidelines, constitutes your acceptance of our amended terms, policies or guidelines.
fitDEGREE provides certain services and collects a variety of information about the users. As such, fitDEGREE may ask you to review and accept separate terms and conditions that apply to your use and interaction with the fitDEGREE Services. To the extent those supplemental terms and conditions conflict with this ToS, the supplemental terms and conditions govern with respect to your use of such fitDEGREE Services, to the extent they conflict.
If you violate the letter or spirit of this ToS, or otherwise create a risk or possible legal exposure to fitDEGREE, or for any other reason that fitDEGREE, in its sole discretion deems necessary, fitDEGREE can stop providing all or part of the Services to you. fitDEGREE will notify you by the email you provided in your registration for the Services or at the next time you attempt to access your account of any termination of Services.
Your access to and use of the Services is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms, and any terms, policies, or guidelines referenced herein upon creating a user profile. These Terms apply to all clubs, studios, gyms and similar facilities, and others (“Clubs”) who access or use the Services. By accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms.
IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANY PART OF THESE TERMS, YOU MUST EXIT THIS WEBSITE IMMEDIATELY AND DISCONTINUE ANY USE OF THE INFORMATION AND THE SERVICES.
fitDEGREE hereby incorporates by reference any additional terms, conditions and privacy notices to this ToS as if set forth fully herein.

Each person who uses the Service is referred to as a “user” or “you” or “your”. Each Club obtains access to the Service and the fitDEGREE Administrator Platform pursuant to these ToS. Individual users are provided access to the Services under a separate Terms of Service Agreement, which can be found below the ToS for Studio Owners. These ToS and the Privacy Notice apply to each Club as defined above. Additionally, each Club is subject to a Data Processing Agreement (DPA), which can be found here: [LINK].
These ToS govern the Club’s access to and use of the Service. By accessing or using the Service, the Club agrees to be bound by these Terms as if these Terms were signed by the Club in ink on a hard-copy agreement.
The Club is invited to use and view the Services available on the fitDEGREE Websites and to use the fitDEGREE Mobile Application and/or any Services associated therewith. fitDEGREE has the ability to collect and store certain data provided by the Club of the fitDEGREE App, Websites or any of the Services.

Each Takedown Notice must be in English and include the following information:
Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed.

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 the Club or anyone else.

fitDEGREE Safety & Account Registration/ Security
The Club is responsible for safeguarding the password that it uses to access the Service and for any activities or actions under its username and password. Therefore, the Club must not share or disclose its password with anyone. fitDEGREE recommends that the Club 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. The Club acknowledges that passwords may be compromised no matter how strong the password. fitDEGREE is not liable to the Club for any loss or damage arising from any third party accessing or using its account without its permission, regardless of how the third party accesses its account.
Please take precautions to protect the Club’s user name and password, and contact us at email@example.com if the Club believes its 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 the Club to do the same. The Club 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 the Club posts 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 the Club’s content for any reason, and the Club believes we removed it by mistake, it has the ability to appeal that decision by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which explains why it believes 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 the Club repeatedly infringe other people's legal rights, we reserve the right to disable its account.
Links to Third Party Resources

These links are merely provided as a courtesy and convenience for our users, Clubs 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.
Subscription Plans / Terms for Clubs
fitDEGREE currently offers three (3) paid-subscription offerings (“Subscription(s)”), on a monthly, or (discounted) annual basis, (each, a “Subscription Plan”) granting access to the Club to use the Services, via the Administrator Platform. For more information regarding Subscription Plans, please visit the fitDEGREE website LINK. fitDEGREE may, in its sole discretion, add, adjust, or remove all or a portion of its Subscription Plans. The Club hereby authorizes fitDEGREE to charge the Club for the subscription fees upon the renewal of an applicable Subscription Plan period (“Recurring Charges”). The Club’s payments for the subscription will be processed through a Third Party Merchant Service (i.e. Splash Payments, Quickbooks, etc.) via Credit Card or ACH. Each Subscription Plan includes restrictions and requirements that outline the features of the Administrator Platform and Services a Club may access, as well as the applicable subscription fee, and termination policies (the “Subscription Terms”). Any violation by the Club of the Subscription Terms may result in the immediate termination of the Club’s Subscription Plan and use of the Administrator Platform, as well as any other potential liability for violation of these ToS. fitDEGREE may, in its sole discretion, reject a Club for any reason or no reason.
fitDEGREE charges each Club a subscription fee, which grants such Club access to the Administrator Platform to utilize the Services and market itself on the Platform. The applicable subscription fees are as described on the Platform in certain subscription fee statements provided to each Club, and correspond to the duration of the subscription period a Club selects (the “Subscription Fees”). Subscription Fees are due at the beginning of each subscription period and are not refundable. Subscription Plans shall automatically renew upon the conclusion of a subscription period unless the Club provides fitDEGREE with appropriate notice of cancellation. If fitDEGREE does not receive a Subscription Fee from a Club when due, then fitDEGREE may consider the Subscription terminated by the Club for the Club’s convenience. fitDEGREE may charge other expenses and/or fees upon notice to the Club if and when such additional fees and expenses become applicable.
Changes, Cancellation or Termination of Subscriptions
A Club may switch to a different Subscription Plan at any time during the subscription period in effect. The effective date of the new Subscription Plan will commence on the day immediately following the final day of the preceding subscription period. If a Club wishes to cancel an existing Subscription in its entirety, the Club may do so upon providing fitDEGREE with notice of the cancellation and before the the effective date of the new subscription period. The cancelled Subscription Plan shall terminate as of the final day of the subscription period in effect on the date of Club’s notice of cancellation and the Club will have access to the Administrator Platform for the remaining time of that final subscription period. Upon the effective date of a cancelled Subscription, the Club shall have no further access to the Administrator Platform.
fitDEGREE and the Club agree that on the termination of the Subscription Plan, the Club may request within sixty (60) days of termination that fitDEGREE returns all the Personal Data transferred and the copies thereof to the Club or that fitDEGREE destroys all the Personal Data and certifies to the Club that it has done so, unless legislation imposed upon fitDEGREE prevents fitDEGREE from returning or destroying all or part of the Personal Data transferred. In that case, fitDEGREE warrants that it will guarantee the confidentiality of the Personal Data transferred and will not actively process the Personal Data transferred anymore.
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 the Club. 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, Clubs 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 the Club 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 the Club. If we have no email address for the Club, 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. The Club’s use of the Service thirty (30) days after any such update or modification shall confirm its agreement to the modified version of the Terms. If the Club does not want to agree to changes to the Terms, it may terminate its account with us, or otherwise terminate its 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 its 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 the Club 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: The Club may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms. Any purported assignment and delegation by the Club 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 the Club at the email address we have for it, or if we have no email address for the Club, 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 the 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.
