Also, by agreeing to this ToU (including by a click-through or other agreement), you are waiving, to the extent permitted under applicable law, any rights or legal requirements that require an original (non-electronic) signature or the delivery or retention of non-electronic records in order for a contract to be legally binding.

We encourage you to review this ToU frequently to stay informed of the latest modifications to the Service.

- ACCOUNTS AND SECURITY.
4.1 Account. You do not need to create an account to visit the App or the Site, but you must create an account to access and utilize certain aspects of the Service by completing the registration process or by creating an account through the MINDBODY application platform. You may be required to provide information about yourself as part of the registration process or your continued use of the Service. You agree that any registration information that you submit to The DEN will be correct, accurate and current.
4.2 Social Networks and The DEN. By linking your account with any social network account including but not limited to, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (“Social Network” or collectively, “Social Networks”), you expressly authorize The DEN to receive, and for Social Networks to share, certain of your information that is available on or through Social Network accounts, including, without limitation, your profile information, friends’ names, your photos, privacy settings, your payment information associated with your account and certain other information that may be disclosed to you (and authorized by you) during the log-in process. The DEN is made available by The DEN and its affiliates. Social Networks are made available by their respective corporate entities.
4.3 Fees. You agree to pay immediately all applicable fees and taxes incurred by you or anyone using your account. Unless otherwise noted, all currency references are in U.S. dollars. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. The DEN may, from time to time, modify, amend, or supplement its pricing, cancellation fees and billing procedures, and such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting a link to an update of this ToU or posting such changes elsewhere on the Site and/or the App. If there is a dispute regarding your payment of fees or the Service The DEN shall have the right to terminate your account without prior notice. For the avoidance of doubt, if you purchase a monthly (or other periodic) Subscription Membership, you agree and acknowledge that your Subscription Membership has an initial and recurring payment charge at the then-current subscription rate, and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation, including where applicable any charges processed by The DEN after the expiration date of your payment card. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART. YOU ARE FULLY LIABLE FOR ALL CHARGES TO YOUR ACCOUNT, INCLUDING ANY UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES.
4.4 Payments. All payments are payable by electronic funds transfer from your credit card account or debit card account. You must authorize payments to be made through a third-party payment processor. You authorize The DEN to charge all payments for the Service (including charges associated with cancellations) on the payment method designated in your account. When you make a reservation through the Site, App or a third-party reservation app, a temporary pre-authorization hold may be placed on your designated payment method to verify that the card is valid and has funds available for your intended purchase. The amount of this pre-authorization hold may be greater or less than the payment total quoted at checkout. However, you will only be charged the final payment total once your payment is registered as complete within The DEN system. The DEN 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 The DEN may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you.
4.5 Subscription Payments . If you purchase a Monthly Pass, or any in person or digital Membership (collectively, “Subscription Membership”), you will be charged the Subscription fee, plus any applicable taxes, and other charges (“Subscription Fee”), at the beginning of your Subscription Membership and each subscription period (e.g., monthly or annually, as specified when you purchase such Subscription Membership) thereafter, at the then-current Subscription Membership Fee. Please note that any three-month workshop or class contract defaults into a month – to – month payment schedule after the three-month contractual period terminates.
4.6 If you purchase a Subscription Membership, we (or our third-party payment processor) will automatically charge you each period on or about the applicable anniversary of the calendar day of the commencement of your Subscription Membership, using the Payment Information you have provided until you cancel your Subscription Membership. In the event your Subscription Membership began on a day not contained in a given month, your payment method will be charged on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we (or our third party payment processor) deem appropriate (for example, if you started a monthly Subscription Membership on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your payment method would be billed on or about that date). By agreeing to this Agreement and electing to purchase a Subscription Membership, you acknowledge that your Subscription Membership has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation of your Subscription Membership by you or The DEN. Please pay special attention to the recurring payment features associated with your Subscription Membership listed on the Site or the App. Your Subscription Membership continues until cancelled by you or we terminate your access to or use of the Services or Subscription Membership in accordance with this Agreement.
4.7 Subscription Cancellation . If you purchased a Subscription Membership through your account, you may cancel your Subscription Membership at any time by disabling the auto-renewal settings in your account settings. Your Subscription Membership will then terminate at the end of your current Subscription Membership period. HOWEVER, ANY TRANSACTION YOU INITIATE IS FINAL AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CANCEL THE PURCHASE AND/OR RECEIVE A REFUND OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEE AT ANY TIME. If something unexpected happens in the course of completing a Transaction, we reserve the right to cancel your Transaction for any reason; if we cancel your Transaction, we’ll refund any payment you have already remitted to us for such Transaction. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY PORTION OF THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE PAID FOR THE THEN CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION MEMBERSHIP PERIOD AT THE TIME OF CANCELLATION. You will be responsible for all Subscription Fees (plus any applicable taxes and other charges) incurred for the then-current Subscription period. If you cancel, your right to use the Services will continue until the end of your then current subscription period and will then terminate without further charges.
