Terms and Conditions
This policy governs your use of the ECKERCISE Website (the “Website”) and the ECKERCISE Mobile Application (the “App”). The Website and the App are designed to allow users to make class/series purchases, register for classes, buy merchandise, and communicate with ECKERCISE Inc. (“ECKERCISE”).
General Statement on Privacy, Personal Data, and Communications
If you use the Website or the App, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, password, and for restricting access to your computer or device. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and password.
When you visit the Website, use the App, or communicate with ECKERCISE via email, you are communicating electronically. You consent to receive communications from ECKERCISE electronically. ECKERCISE will communicate with you by email or by posting notifications on the Website and/or the App. You understand and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that ECKERCISE provides electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
User Provided Information
ECKERCISE does not collect any personal information about individuals – such as names and postal codes, home addresses, and email addresses – except when such information is knowingly provided to ECKERCISE. Personal information might be obtained from online transactions such as class/series purchases, retail purchases, and/or class registrations. Additionally, personal information may be transmitted as part of a form submission or in connection with other activities or services made available on the Website or App. Any personal identification information retrieved by ECKERCISE must be voluntarily submitted by the user.
ECKERCISE may use the information provided to contact you with important information, required notices, and marketing promotions.
Automatically Collected Information
The Website and App collect some anonymous information about users automatically when individuals request pages through a browser. This information is used to keep track of the shopping cart and to help us monitor how individuals use the Website and App, which allows ECKERCISE to provide an optimal experience and better service throughout the online offerings. The information collected automatically by the server does not contain anything that can identify individuals personally, such as an email or home address.
ECKERCISE makes every effort to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on the Website and App are secure. All credit card numbers and transactions are encrypted using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Website and App. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
What is a Secure Connection?
When a secure connection is established between your browser and a website, any data that is transferred over the connection will be encrypted to prevent it from being viewed by a third party. SSL encryption makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept or decode messages exchanged over this type of secure connection.
Browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari display an image of a locked padlock on their status bar when connected to a secure site. Google Chrome shows a green locked padlock on the far left side of the status bar when there is a secure SSL connection. Firefox colors the address bar yellow when connected to a secure site. Secure transactions are also indicated when the prefix in the location bar of your browser switches from http:// or https://. The additional ‘s’ stands for ‘secure’ and indicates a secure connection to the ECKERCISE website. If you do not see this padlock, if it is unlocked, or if the protocol in the location bar is not listed as https://, then any data exchanged with the website is potentially visible to others.
Depending on your browser, you may be able to view authentication information about a secure page by double-clicking on the padlock icon in the status bar. For more information on how your software establishes a secure connection, see the help files for your particular browser.
A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files that were created by other sites – the website that creates a cookie is the only one a browser will permit to access it.
How Information is Used
The following are examples of how ECKERCISE might use the personal information collected through the Website and/or App:
* If you purchase a ECKERCISE series, sign up for a ECKERCISE class, or purchase ECKERCISE retail items, the required personal information (similar to that provided during a telephone or mail order purchase) will be used to complete your order.
* If you indicate that you are interested in receiving ECKERCISE related news and information, you may receive emails to the email address you provided as part of the registration process.
For the non-personally identifiable information collected throughout the Website or App:
* Aggregate data could be analyzed to describe the collective characteristics and behaviors of online visitors, and subsequently be used to further optimize the effectiveness of the website, the mobile application, and the overall ECKERCISE experience.
You can help ECKERCISE maintain the accuracy of your personal information by updating your account. Please update this information when you change your address, phone number, or email address. ECKERCISE will never share telephone numbers, email addresses, or any personal data with third parties.
ECKERCISE reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders, at its sole discretion.
Privacy of Minors
If you are under 18, you may register and use the Website and App only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. ECKERCISE does not accept the online registration of minors; please do not attempt to register on the Website if you are under the age of 18. Registration of a minor (ages 12-17) must be completed in person at one of our studios with a parent or guardian. Minors (ages 12-17) who meet the minimum height requirement of 4”11” and who have submitted a Minor New Rider Waiver Form signed by a parent or guardian, may sign up for classes online.
If ECKERCISE discovers that personal information has been submitted by a minor without a signed participant/registration waiver, ECKERCISE reserves the right to delete such information. ECKERCISE does not seek or share personal information from minors throughout the Website or App.
In order to make a reservation, you must first own a single class or a series (multiple classes). To buy an individual class or series online, you can either sign up here by using your email and creating a password, or if you are already registered, click login to buy a series and make your reservation.
You should be aware that classes and series expire, and future prices are subject to change. We accept MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Cash payments may only be made in a ECKERCISE studio. You can reserve classes online up to 1 week in advance (Monday through the following Monday), but not later than 1 hour prior to class time. Deadlines apply regardless of available functionality.
Your credit/debit card will be charged for your order when you submit your reservation. ECKERCISE will not process reservation charges that use an incorrect, expired, or over-the-limit credit card. We will make our best efforts to contact you if this occurs. If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due, services or privileges may be suspended or terminated. You shall be responsible and liable for any fees, including attorneys’ fees and collection costs, that ECKERCISE may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you.
In order to cancel an ECKERCISE class and return it to your account, you must unreserve 12 hours prior to the class. Once your class is cancelled, the class will be returned to your account to be used at a future date; the class is not refunded. If you haven’t cancelled your class twelve hours before, your scheduled class will be charged to your series.
You can cancel your reservation in the following ways:
1) Log into your account and cancel your reservation.
2) Call the studio where you’re booked to cancel the class for you.
Please note, in fairness to all our customers, CLASSES WILL BE RELEASED TO THOSE WAITING 4 MINUTES PRIOR TO CLASS.
FOR THOSE RUNNING LATE: We ask that you call the studio to let us know you are on the way. The front desk will hold a reservation for up to 5 minutes after class begins. Those who are more than 10 minutes late will not be admitted into class as it is too disruptive.
FOR THOSE LEAVING EARLY: If you’re planning on leaving early, we kindly request that you tell the instructor ahead of time.
