YOU CERTIFY THAT YOU ARE PHYSICALLY FIT AND SUFFICIENTLY TRAINED FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE SERVICES AND THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN ADVISED AGAINST PARTICIPATION BY YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.
YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO RELEASE TRSP, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS AND LICENSORS (THE "RELEASED PARTIES") FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY CONNECTED WITH YOUR ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES, AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE THE RELEASED PARTIES FOR ANY CLAIMS, ACTIONS, INJURIES, DAMAGES, OR LOSSES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL THE RELEASED PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH (a) YOUR USE OR MISUSE OF THE WEBSITE OR SERVICE, (b) YOUR USE OF PROGRAMS CREATED BY TRSP WHILE ENGAGED IN ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES, (c) YOUR DEALINGS WITH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS OR ADVERTISERS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR SERVICE, (d) ANY DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE OR SERVICE EXPERIENCED BY YOU.
THESE LIMITATIONS APPLY REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER BASED ON TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT TRSP WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THESE LIMITS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, IN COMPLIANCE WITH NEW JERSEY’S TRUTH-IN-CONSUMER CONTRACT, WARRANTY AND NOTICE ACT (TCCWNA), N.J.S.A. § 56:12-14, THE DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH HEREIN MAY BE VOID, UNENFORCEABLE OR INAPPLICABLE IN THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY.
You agree that your use of the Services in another jurisdiction does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over TRSP in jurisdictions other than New York. The laws of the State of New York will govern these Terms and the relationship between you and TRSP as if you signed these Terms in New York, without regard to New York State’s conflicts of laws rules. If any provisions of these Terms are inconsistent with any applicable law, those provisions will be superseded and/or modified only to the extent such provisions are inconsistent. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THIS VENUE AS INCONVENIENT OR INAPPROPRIATE, AND AGREE TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN NEW YORK. In any such proceeding, you agree that service may be made upon you via e-mail at your e-mail address that we then have on-file.
This Section 20 includes an arbitration agreement and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. You may opt out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt out procedure described below.
Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and TRSP, you will first contact TRSP and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.
Arbitration Agreement. After the informal dispute resolution process any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, "Claim") relating in any way to your use of TRSP’s Services, or relating in any way to TRSP’s communications with you, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and TRSP. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by TRSP for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Services that (including the Website) is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms or (b) bar you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases. If you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access the Services or the date you receive any Services by following the procedure described below.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and TRSP are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive any termination of these Terms.
If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to The Run SMART Project, LLC.,989 Amsterdam Ave, #5A, New York, NY 10025. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules including, if you are an individual, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Services on behalf of an entity, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
The number of arbitrators shall be one. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If you are an individual and have not accessed the Services on behalf of an entity, we will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $100, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, and we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the below subsection entitled "Class Action Waiver."
Class Action Waiver. Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding ("Class Action"). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator shall not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration.
If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement, if otherwise effective, shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and TRSP each waive any right to a jury trial.
21. Right to Amend Terms and the Services.
TRSP may modify these Terms, change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or Content at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all. TRSP may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Service without notice or liability. Any use of the Services after our publication of any such changes shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement as modified. However, any Dispute that arose before the modification shall be governed by the Agreement (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that was in place when the Dispute arose.
22. Errors, Omissions and Support.
Occasionally there may be information on the Services that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product or Service descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, charges and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel Transactions at any time without prior notice.
We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information in the Services, except as required by law. No specified update or refresh date applied in the Services, should be taken to indicate that all information in the Services has been modified or updated.
Due to maintenance, security, or capacity issues, or to events beyond our control, equipment malfunction, power failures, hostile attacks, etc., the Services may be temporarily suspended or affected. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any errors and minimize any disruption and/or inoperability of the Services, whether scheduled or not. Where feasible, we will provide forty-eight (48) hours advance notice to you in the event of any scheduled downtime.
23. Modification of Services.
We may modify, update, or discontinue the Services at any time without liability to you or anyone else. However, we will make a reasonable effort to notify you before we make such a change. Users shall bear sole responsibility for backing up their User Content and all other content or materials. If the modified Services are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services and, if applicable, to terminate your Subscription Agreement.
Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms. Waiver of compliance in any particular instance does not mean that we will do so in the future. In order for any waiver of compliance with these Terms to be binding, we must provide you with written notice of such waiver, provided by one of our authorized representatives.
The Agreement does not limit any rights that TRSP may have under trade secret, copyright, patent, or other laws. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by TRSP without restriction.
You cannot assign, transfer or sublicense these Terms without first obtaining our consent. We may assign, transfer, or delegate any of our rights and obligations without consent. These Terms do not create any agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship, and neither party has any authority to bind the other in any respect. If we do not enforce any part of these Terms, it does not mean we give up the right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms.
No party shall be liable to another party for failure perform its obligations under these Terms if such failure is caused by any event or condition not reasonably within the control and anticipation of the affected party, including, without limitation, by fire, flood, typhoon, earthquake, explosion, strike, labor trouble or other industrial disturbance, unavoidable accident, war (declared or undeclared), act of terrorism, sabotage, embargo, riot, or any other cause beyond the control of the parties ("Force Majeure"), provided that the affected party promptly notifies the other party of the occurrence of such event or condition and takes reasonable steps necessary to resume performance of its obligations.
The section and paragraph headings in these Terms are for convenience only and do not affect their interpretation. Whenever the words "include," "includes" or "including" are used in the Terms, they shall be deemed to be followed by the words "without limitation." Whenever the word "or" is used in the Terms, it shall not be deemed exclusive. The definitions contained in the Terms are applicable to the singular as well as to the plural forms of such terms and to the masculine as well as to the feminine and neuter genders of such terms. Any pronouns used herein shall include the corresponding masculine, feminine or neuter forms.
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action related to the Services or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
If you have any questions, complaints, or claims with respect to the Services or any of the TRSP agreements, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional Terms of Service for Users of the VDOT O2 Marketplace.
In addition to all other Terms and policies of TRSP, the following terms apply to Users who access the VDOT O2 Marketplace ("VDOT O2 Terms"). In the event of a conflict between these VDOT O2 Terms and the Terms of Service above, these VDOT O2 Terms shall control.
The VDOT O2 Marketplace provides a communications platform for enabling connections between Users, including individual Users providing running training services (each, a "Coach") and registered Users seeking coaching services (each, an "Athlete"). The coaching services offered or provided in connection with the VDOT O2 Marketplace are hereinafter referred to as "Coaching Products."
Through the VDOT O2 Marketplace, TRSP offers information and a method for Coaches to provide and Athletes to obtain Coaching Products, but TRSP does not and does not intend to provide Coaching Products ourselves. TRSP shall not control or have any right to control the manner or means by which the Coach provides Coaching Products, including but not limited to the time and place the Coaching Products are provided or the tools, methods and materials used by the Coach. TRSP does not supervise a Coach’s work, and has no responsibility or liability for any Coach or Coaching Products. TRSP is not the employer of any Coach.
Although we reserve the right to conduct background checks or other screening at any time by using third party services and available public records in accordance with applicable law, TRSP does not inquire into the backgrounds of its Users or attempt to verify the statements of its Users, including Coaches and Athletes.
1. Account Registration and Information.
By accessing the VDOT O2 Marketplace, you affirm that you are fully able and competent to enter into and comply with the Terms, including these VDOT Terms, and that all the information you submit is accurate and truthful. We only permit individuals who are (i) at least 18 years old or at least 13 years old and have their parent or guardian’s consent to the Terms and (ii) who can form legally binding contracts with us to use the VDOT O2 Marketplace.
We may still refuse to let certain people access or use the VDOT O2 Marketplace. We may also change our eligibility criteria at any time. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to further limit the access of our Services to any person, geographic region, or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.
All Users participating in the VDOT O2 Marketplace must set up an account with our third party money services provider (currently, Stripe) and agree to its policies and to any transactional or other fees charged by the third party provider.
Before becoming a Coach, you may be required to submit an application and provide certain requested information. TRSP reviews applications solely for aesthetic quality control and may require that the quality of the applicant’s photographs, text, and "look and feel" of a profile meet certain TRSP requirements.
In order to access certain services in the VDOT Marketplace, you may be required to register for an account and provide certain profile information such as your name, date of birth, gender, running/athletic history, address, credit card information, email-address, and other relevant details. Registered Users agree that profile information (other than address and credit card information) may be viewed by other Users.
Once a Coach has been approved and activated his or her account, the Coach can then publish a public profile on the Services by providing certain required and optional information that may include, among other things, details regarding your name, location, certifications, photos, experience and expertise, Athlete requirements, availability, fees, and Coaching Products. Users can browse Coaches’ profiles on the Coaching Marketplace and Users, including registered Athletes, can submit requests to communicate with and purchase Coaching Products from the Coaches. The provision of Coaching Products is up to the Coaches and subject to availability; Coaches are not obligated to answer all communications or comply with any requests for the provision of Coaching Products. We reserve the right to cancel or to discontinue making certain Coaching Products available through the Services without prior notice.
3. Coaching Services Agreement.
Once an Athlete makes a purchase on the Services, an agreement has been made (the "Coaching Services Agreement"). Coaches publish minimum requirements for Athletes for each Coaching Product, and have the right to reject or cancel an Athlete’s purchase and the Coaching Services Agreement for any reason, at the Coach’s sole discretion. If a Coach cancels a purchase before the provision of Coaching services, the payment for that Coaching Product will be refunded. The third party processor may charge fees related to refunds or charge-backs; all Users should carefully review those terms.
Users are solely responsible for any issues arising from the use of the Services, including the Coaching Products. Any agreements created between Users are not binding on TRSP.
IN ADDITION TO ALL DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH IN THE TERMS OF SERVICE, WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR, OR OBLIGATED TO ENFORCE, ANY AGREEMENTS BETWEEN A COACH AND AN ATHLETE.
Users of the Services contract for Coaching Products directly with other Users. TRSP is not a party to any contracts for Coaching Products, including any Coaching Services Agreement, and makes no guarantees or warranties whatsoever regarding the performance or provision of Coaching Products or the Athlete’s ability to meet their payment obligations. The Services facilitate these contracts by supplying a medium through which Users can connect, contract for Coaching Products, and pay/be paid for those Coaching Products ("Payments").
Coaches may change the Coaching Products they offer from time to time. If your Coach changes a subscription Coaching Product, your subscription to the old Coaching Product will be cancelled, and you may have the opportunity to subscribe to a new Coaching Product. Changes to or cancellations of Coaching Products offered that require Athlete subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the change, and you will not be able to use the Coaching Products unless you subscribe to the new Coaching Product.
No refunds or credits will be provided once the Athlete has been charged unless the Coach, in his or her sole discretion, cancels the purchase, or unless TRSP has made an error that needs to be corrected. No other refunds will be issued. The refund method will depend upon the payment method. You can cancel your subscription for a Coaching Product at any time directly in the App or by contacting your Coach directly. If you cancel your payment or subscription before the end of the current subscription period, we will not refund any subscription fees already paid.
While we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all credit card and other personal information, we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage that may result should any information be released to any third parties, and you agree to hold us harmless for any damages that may result therefrom. Payment processing services are provided by third party payment processers and are subject to the fees, terms and policies of such third parties.
TRSP charges fees in connection with certain uses of the Services ("TRSP Fee(s)") and such fees are applied to any and all Coaching Services Agreements. The current TRSP Fee is twelve percent (12%) of the cost of the Coaching Product. This twelve percent (12%) fee, and any payment processing fees charged by the third party service provider (i.e. Stripe) will be automatically deducted from all payments made by Athletes before payment is distributed to the Coach.
Modifications of TRSP Fees will be effective upon written notification to User and will supersede any and all prior versions. By using the Services, you authorize TRSP to withhold TRSP Fees and any other applicable fees from the payments made to the Coach.
All obligations to pay fees related to the Services, including in connection with a Coaching Services Agreement, shall survive the termination of your account or termination of the Services.
Users expressly agree not to attempt to circumvent the Services by independently attempting to communicate with each other through alternative means; such Users will be subject to legal action and their access to the Services may be terminated.
5. Relationship of the Parties; Status.
Each Coach is an independent contractor and has not been engaged by TRSP to perform services on TRSP’s behalf. Rather, the Coach has entered into this Agreement for the purpose of having access to the Services. This Agreement shall not be construed to create any association, partnership, joint venture, joint employer, employee, worker or agency relationship between TRSP and any User or between Users for any purpose. Coaches have no authority (and shall not hold themselves out as having authority) to bind TRSP, and Coaches shall not make any agreements or representations on behalf of TRSP.
6. Coaches: Insurance; Taxes.
It is the sole responsibility of the Coaches to maintain in full force and effect, as applicable, adequate workers' compensation (or, if permitted by law, occupational accident insurance), unemployment, general liability, and other forms of insurance, in each case with insurers reasonably acceptable to TRSP with policy limits sufficient to protect and indemnify TRSP and its affiliates. WE RECOMMEND THAT ALL COACHES OBTAIN GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE.
TRSP will not be responsible for withholding or paying any income, payroll, Social Security, sales or value added tax, or other federal, state, or local taxes, making any insurance contributions, including unemployment or disability, or obtaining workers' compensation insurance on Coaches’ behalf. Coaches shall be responsible for, and shall indemnify and hold TRSP harmless for any claims, suits, or actions related to this provision, including any such claims brought by any Coach or by any third party with respect to any claims for taxes or contributions, including penalties and interest.
7. Indemnity; Limitation of Liability.
IN ADDITION TO ALL OTHER LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH IN THE TERMS, USERS AGREE TO HOLD TRSP FREE FROM THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LIABILITY OR DAMAGE THAT MIGHT ARISE FROM THE COACHING PRODUCTS. TRSP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH ANY COACHING PRODUCT OR COMMUNICATION OR OTHER TRANSACTION BETWEEN USERS.
YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION IN AND PURCHASE OF THE COACHING PRODUCTS. YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS TRSP AND ITS AFFILATES FROM ALL LOSS, DAMAGE OR LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE COACHING PRODUCTS.
