PAYMENTS

Auto billing; Subscription Fees.  The Sobekick Portal provides access to a paid, auto-renewing subscription service for access to online exercise classes, either streaming or on demand (the “Exercise Subscription”).  If you purchase an Exercise Subscription, you are agreeing to automatic and recurring monthly billing, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith. Your Exercise Subscription, and monthly billing of your account, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, as modified from time to time. All Sobekick Exercise Subscriptions recur on a monthly basis.  Billing occurs at the beginning of the Exercise Subscription cycle, or upon subscription for new Members, and provides unlimited access for one-month thereafter.

You hereby authorize Sobekick to charge your credit card on a monthly basis for the Exercise Subscription you selected, in advance. You hereby authorize Sobekick to charge and/or place a hold on your credit card with respect to any unpaid charges for Exercise Subscriptions. You authorize the issuer of the credit card to pay any amounts described herein without requiring a signed receipt, and you agree that this Agreement shall be accepted as authorization to the issuer of the credit card to pay any amounts described herein without requiring a signed receipt, and you agree that this Agreement shall be accepted as authorization to the issuer of the credit card to pay all such amounts. You authorize Sobekick and/or any other company who acts as billing agent for Sobekick, to continue to attempt to charge and/or place holds with respect to all sums described herein, or any portion thereof, to your credit card until such amounts are paid in full. You agree to provide Sobekick with updated credit card information upon Sobekick’s request and any time the information you previously provided is no longer valid. You acknowledge and agree that neither Sobekick, nor any Sobekick affiliated company, will have any liability whatsoever for any non-sufficient funds or other charges incurred by you as a result of such attempts to charge, and/or place holds on, your credit card. If you provide a debit card number, instead of a credit card number, you authorize all charges described herein to be applied to such debit card unless and until you provide a credit card number.

Your Exercise Subscription membership begins when you have completed the sign-up process (i.e., when we collect your personal and payment information).  After your initial payment, you will be billed automatically each month thereafter (about every 30 days) until you cancel. Once we begin to bill you, cancellations take effect starting at the end of your current billing period, meaning there are no partial month refunds or credits.

These terms will always be disclosed on the payment screen at the time of sign up, prior to our acceptance of payment.

If you believe you have been billed in error for the Exercise Subscription, please notify us within 60 days of the billing date by contacting Sobekick Support at [email protected].  Sobekick will not issue refunds or credits after the expiration of this 60-day period, except where required by law or regulation.

The pricing of the access to the Sobekick Portal may vary periodically. We cannot guarantee that the price of your Exercise Subscription is the lowest available, or historically lowest or best price. You will be charged in accordance with the billing terms you agreed to at the time you signed up.  At certain times, we may offer special promotional offers (“Special Offers“) to new members.  If you are already a member, you acknowledge and understand that you will not be eligible for any Special Offers.

When using the Site, information will be transmitted over a medium that may be beyond the control and jurisdiction of Sobekick and its suppliers. Accordingly, Sobekick assumes no liability for or relating to the delay, failure, interruption, or corruption of any data or other information transmitted in connection with use of the Sobekick Site.

EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE EXERCISE SUBSCRIPTION OR ACCESS THE SOBEKICK PORTAL, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXERCISE SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR EXERCISE SUBSCRIPTION OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED. To cancel, follow the instructions below (“How to Cancel“).

HOW TO CANCEL

If you do not wish for your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your SobeKick Portal subscription, first log into your account, and then click the “Customers” tab on the left-hand side of your dashboard, under the support section. While there, you will see subscription details and purchase history.  Within the subscription details section, you will see the next scheduled payment as well as a stop sign at the end of the next payment detail. If you click the stop sign, a message will appear asking to confirm the cancellation. If you wish to cancel the subscription please select, “confirm.”  Your cancellation will take effect starting at the end of your current billing period.

Your Exercise Subscription status will state that your account is “Pending Cancellation.” This is because your cancellation takes effect at the start of the next billing cycle (Don’t worry – your cancellation effective date will be listed and you will continue to have access to your account through the account expiration date). So, for example, if you have a monthly subscription that began on the first of the month but cancel mid-month, your cancellation will take effect as of the beginning of the following month. Sorry– there are no refunds on Sobekick Exercise Subscriptions for billing periods that have already lapsed.

Service Add-Ons– Auto Billing; Coaching; Subscription Fees; and Cancellation

We refer to any additional, paid subscription service we offer beyond a standard Exercise Subscriptions as an “Add-On Service.” For example, our personalized Coaching service, or any other service we may offer to you which provides access to special or additional content beyond your standard Exercise Subscription, is an Add-On Service.

Each Add-On Service is a separate subscription service and is subject to an additional monthly fee that automatically renews just like your regular Exercise Subscription, and is subject to the same terms set out above.  Before agreeing to an Add-On Service, you will be prompted with (i) the type of Add-On Service being offered (e.g. Coaching); and (ii) the monthly, recurring cost for such Add-On Service. Note: if You purchase an Add-On Service, You are agreeing to an additional monthly automatic (recurring) billing subscription, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith, as disclosed at the time you accept the Add-On Service. Your Add-On Service subscription, just like your standard Exercise Subscription, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you.

Add-On Services are billed on the same day as your Exercise Subscription, in one combined payment. You can cancel at any time by following the instructions above (“How to Cancel“). Note that Your Add-On Service subscription is separate from your Exercise Subscription, although we will combine the charges each month when we bill you. You can cancel one or both at any time, but canceling your Exercise Subscription will automatically cancel your Add-On Service.

Quarterly and Annual Subscriptions.

In certain circumstances, we may, but are under no obligation to, offer subscriptions for a longer term (for example, 3 months, 6 months or even a year). These longer-term subscriptions are charged in full upon purchase, and automatically renew for the same duration as the initial subscription term you selected (for example, if you initially purchased a 3 month Exercise Subscription, your subscription will automatically renew for three months; 6 month subscriptions will automatically renew for six months, and so on). The amount due for the next renewal term will be due and immediately payable in full and charged as of the first day of such renewal term. You can always cancel before your next renewal term by logging into your account, and following the cancellation instructions above (“How to Cancel“).

Paused Subscriptions.  Given the portable medium of the Sobekick Portal, there are no events that will support the pausing or freezing of subscriptions.  If you are no longer able to utilize the Sobekick Portal, you should cancel your subscription. 

Authorization. When you sign up for a subscription and provide a payment method to Sobekick, you are granting your express consent and are expressly authorizing us (and our designated payment processor) to automatically charge you each month for access to the Sobekick Portal.

If you provide a payment method and our charge results in an overdraft, chargeback or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee.

Changes.  Sobekick may change, modify, add, remove, suspend, cancel or discontinue any aspect of it subscriptions including the functionality, content, and/or availability of any features of such subscriptions at any time in Sobekick’s sole discretion.

Sobekick may increase its fees for any subscription effective the first day of a billing renewal by giving you notice of the new fees at least thirty (30) days before you are billed. If you have and do not cancel your subscription, you will be deemed to have accepted the new fees.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW:

The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Sobekick Portal, or the Site shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against Sobekick in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against Sobekick or its affiliates any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.

By using the Site or the Sobekick Portal in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Sobekick or its affiliates (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against Sobekick (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in either Miami-Dade county, Florida. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes and you irrevocably waive any right to a trial by jury.

This Agreement, and any dispute between you and Sobekick, shall be governed by the laws of the state of California without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.  The Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act, and the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods shall not apply.

Sobekick is based in the United States of America.  Sobekick makes no claims that the Site and/or the Content are appropriate or may be accessed outside of the United States.  Access to the Site, Sobekick Portal, and their Content may not be legal for certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Site and/or the Sobekick Portal from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction.

INTERPRETATION; SEVERABILITY; WAIVER; REMEDIES: Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to construe the terms of this Agreement. If any term of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be severed from this Agreement. No failure or delay by Sobekick in exercising any right hereunder will waive any further exercise of that right. Sobekick’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive.

SUCCESSORS; ASSIGNMENT; NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES: This Agreement is binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of both parties and their respective successors, heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and permitted assigns; provided however, you may not assign this Agreement without Sobekick’s prior written consent. Sobekick may assign its rights, obligations and/or this Agreement at any time in its sole discretion without notice to you.  No third party shall have any rights hereunder.

NOTICES: You consent to receive all communications including notices, agreements, disclosures, or other information from Sobekick electronically. Sobekick may provide all such communications by email or by posting them on the Sobekick Portal. For support-related inquiries, you may send an email to [email protected], or the following address:
