To use the Services, you must be at least 18 years of age, have been granted access to the Services by an employer that subscribes to the Services under a separate agreement with Vimocity (each an “Employer”) as an employee or a friend or family member of an employee granted access through a shared code (each a “User”), not barred from receiving the Services under applicable law, and have never previously been suspended or removed from any of Vimocity’s Services.

Vimocity offers the Services to Employers to grant access to their Users as an employment-related benefit in exchange for fees paid by the Employer under a separate agreement with Vimocity. Your access to the Services has been paid for by the Employer granting you access, and you will be able to use the Services until the expiration of a specified term agreed between Vimocity and the Employer. The Employer controls the scope and duration of your access to the Services access and may terminate your access to it. You agree that Vimocity will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination or cancellation of your access to, or use of, the Services that were originally provided to you by the Employer. If you are an employee User, you hereby authorize Vimocity to disclose details about your participation in a challenge or rewards program with your Employer.
- ASSUMPTION OF RISK
You are aware that participation in exercise and/or fitness activities may create a serious risk of injury and you knowingly and freely assume all such risks, known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of others.

You should only use the Services if you are in good health and do not have any signs or symptoms of injury, illness, or health condition. Please contact your healthcare provider if you have any questions about your health condition. NEITHER VIMOCITY NOR THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE, NOR ARE THE SERVICES A SUBSTITUTE FOR HEALTHCARE OF ANY KIND.
Vimocity encourages you to obtain advice from a qualified healthcare provider before changing your exercise or diet regimen. Vimocity makes no evaluation or recommendation whether you are sufficiently fit for any exercise activities, including the exercise and/or fitness activities demonstrated or suggested through the Services. Vimocity, its staff, and the content-providers are not licensed or otherwise credentialed medical care providers, are not rendering personal medical advice or treatment, and have no expertise in advising on, diagnosing, examining, or treating personal health conditions or injuries of any kind, or in determining the effect of any specific exercise or activity on a personal health condition.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password, and you are responsible for all activities that occur via your account. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to your account or use of your username or password or any other breach of security.

Portions of the Program may be unavailable to Participants in Puerto Rico or the United States Virgin Islands. The Program is void where prohibited by law.

- Vimocity may provide other options for Participants to earn Points through the Program.
- Participants may redeem their Points for “Rewards” through the “Rewards Catalogs” described below. Participants that redeem Points will have their name submitted to their Employers.

d. Program Terms and Conditions. You can earn and redeem Points by participating in the Program, according to these rules:
- Points have no cash value or transferability. Points do not constitute property, nor do Points entitle a Participant to a vested right or interest. As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable or assignable for any reason, and are not transferable upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter, or otherwise by operation of law.
- Participant is strictly prohibited from selling or transferring points to any other person or party. Any sale or transfer of Points shall be deemed void.
- Points expiration dates are determined by Vimocity at its sole discretion. Vimocity reserves the right to change the expiration date for any Points.

YOU USE THE SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SERVICES AND ALL COMPONENTS THEREOF ARE PROVIDED TO YOU “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, VIMOCITY AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, AND LICENSORS EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM ALL EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE.

We make no warranty regarding the quality, accuracy, timeliness, truthfulness, completeness, or reliability of the Services or any Contents.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
VIMOCITY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING PERSONAL INJURY, HEALTH OR MEDICAL ISSUES, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE, OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT VIMOCITY HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL VIMOCITY’S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID TO US FOR USE OF THE SERVICES OR, IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD ANY PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS TO VIMOCITY, ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100). THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH HEREIN ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN VIMOCITY AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD VIMOCITY AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS AND LICENSORS HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS, SUITS, ACTIONS, DEMANDS, DISPUTES, ALLEGATIONS, OR INVESTIGATIONS BROUGHT BY ANY THIRD PARTY, GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY, OR INDUSTRY BODY, AND ALL LIABILITIES, DAMAGES, LOSSES, COSTS, AND EXPENSES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES, ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS ACTIVITIES, USER CONTENT, PARTICIPATION IN ANY PROMOTION OR EVENT (WHETHER OR NOT VIMOCITY SPONSORS, ORGANIZES, PARTICIPATES IN, OR WHOSE SERVICES ARE USED IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH EVENT), VIOLATION OF THE TERMS, OR VIOLATION OF ANY RIGHTS OF ANOTHER PERSON OR ENTITY.
- DISPUTE RESOLUTION
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT CONTAINS A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS, AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM VIMOCITY. You agree that any dispute, controversy or claim between you and Vimocity arising out of or relating to: (1) these Terms, or the breach thereof; (2) our provision of the Services to you; (3) your access to or use of the Services; or (4) any alleged violation of any federal, state, or local law, statute, or ordinance (each such dispute, controversy or claim, a “Dispute”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
a. Informal Dispute Resolution. We want to address your concerns without the necessity of a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Vimocity, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. Vimocity will contact you by email as part of a good-faith effort to resolve the Dispute informally. If a Dispute is not resolved within 30 days after submission, you or Vimocity may bring a formal proceeding.
b. Arbitration Agreement. You and Vimocity each agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures. The arbitration will be held in Seattle, Washington, United States, or any other location we agree to. The AAA rules will govern the payment of all arbitration fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Vimocity may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Seattle, Washington, or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of our Services or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described above.
c. Class Action Waiver. You may only resolve Disputes with Vimocity on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed under these Terms.
d. Venue. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in King County, Washington, USA to enforce these Terms or adjudicate any other Dispute, and you and Vimocity each agree to waive the right to a jury trial. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, if the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Vimocity agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts in King County, Washington.
e. Limitation on Claims. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
a. Geographic Restrictions. Vimocity is owned and operated in the United States. We make no claims that the Services or any other products or services or their content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Access to our Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain jurisdictions. If you access the Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
b. Relationship of Parties. The parties’ relationship, as established by these Terms, is solely that of independent contractors. These Terms do not create any partnership, joint venture, or similar business relationship between the parties. Neither party is a legal representative of the other party, and neither party can direct and control the day-to-day activities of the other, or assume or create any obligation, representation, warranty, or guarantee, express or implied, on behalf of the other party for any purpose whatsoever.
c. Governing Law. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, these Terms and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington without regard to its conflict of laws principles. The Federal Arbitration Act, Washington state law, and applicable U.S. federal law, without regard to the choice or conflicts of law provisions, will govern these Terms.
d. Assignment. You may not assign, delegate, or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent, but Vimocity may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null.
e. Entire Agreement. Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms and the agreements incorporated by reference herein constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Vimocity and you regarding the Services and supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Vimocity and you regarding the Services.
f. Enforcement. Vimocity reserves the right (but is not required) to remove or disable your access to our Services, disable any username, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, or remove any Content, or your User Content at any time and without notice, and at our sole discretion, if we determine that your use of the Services is in any way objectionable or in violation of these Terms. Certain violations of these Terms, as determined by Vimocity, may result in immediate termination of your access to the Services without prior notice to you. We have the right to investigate violations of these Terms and any conduct that affects our Services, and in response may take any action we may deem appropriate.
g. Waiver; Severability. Vimocity’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. Except as expressly set forth herein, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
h. Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given via email to your email address on your account or by posting to the Services. Notices from you to Vimocity will be given via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For notices made by email, the date of receipt of the message will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
