SR has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such External Sites. Links to these External Sites, if any, are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk, and you may be subject to the terms and conditions and the privacy policies imposed by such third parties. Links do not imply that SR sponsors, endorses, is affiliated with or associated with, or has been legally authorized to use any trademark, trade name, service mark, design, logo, symbol or other copyrighted materials displayed on or accessible through such External Sites.

To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, SR SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, FREEDOM FROM HARMFUL CODE, AND WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE.

THE PLATFORMS ARE PROVIDED VIA THE INTERNET AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SR DOES NOT OPERATE OR CONTROL THE INTERNET. AS SUCH, THE PLATFORMS MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS, DELAYS, AND OTHER PROBLEMS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS. SR SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAYS, DELIVERY FAILURES, OR OTHER DAMAGE RESULTING FROM SUCH PROBLEMS.

Furthermore, SR does not make any warranties or representations regarding the completeness, correctness, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, or reliability of any information made available on the Platforms. As a condition of you use of SR Products, you warrant to SR that you will not use any SR Products for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms of Use. WE FURTHER MAKE NO GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY AS TO THE PARTICULAR HEALTH AND WELLNESS GOALS, RESULTS, BENEFITS OR OUTCOMES THAT MAY BE ACHIEVED OR OBTAINED THROUGH USE OF ANY SR PRODUCTS. YOU AGREE TO USE THE SR PRODUCTS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

You will not hold SR or its third-party service providers, licensors and suppliers, as applicable, responsible for any loss or damage that results from your access to or use of the SR Products, including without limitation any loss or damage to any of your computers or data, as the SR Products may contain Harmful Code or other limitations

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

IN NO EVENT SHALL SR, OR ANY OF ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS, PROVIDERS, THIRD PARTY PARTNERS, ANYONE WHO HELPED DEVELOP, CREATE, PRODUCE, DISPLAY, TRANSMIT OR DELIVER OUR CONTENT, MATERIAL OR INFORMATION USED IN THE PLATFORMS OR SR PRODUCTS, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES OR SUBSIDIARIES BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, TREBLE, ENHANCED, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THOSE RESULTING FROM LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR INACCESSIBLE DATA, LOSS OF PRIVACY, BREACH OF DATA OR DATA SECURITY, COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION), OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF SR HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. These limitations will apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy.

IN NO EVENT SHALL SR’S LIABILITY FOR DIRECT DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE SR PRODUCTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY PRODUCT, CONTENT OR OTHER MATERIALS OFFERED OR MADE AVAILABLE ON THE PLATFORMS, EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100). You agree that this limitation of liability represents a reasonable allocation of risk and is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain between you and SR. The SR Products would not be provided without such limitations. SR will not be liable for failure to perform any obligation under these Terms of Use if such failure is caused by the occurrence of any unforeseen circumstance beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, Internet outages, communications outages, fire, flood, threats or acts of terror, theft, any action or inaction of governmental, civil or military authority, strikes, lockouts or other labor disputes, or war. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

Sale of Products

All purchases of SR Products are subject to SR’s Terms of Sale which are also posted to the Site and are incorporated herein by reference. You are bound by the Terms of Sale automatically upon your purchase of SR Products. We have taken reasonable precautions to ensure that all product descriptions, prices and other information shown on the Platforms are correct and fairly described. However, when ordering SR Products through the Platforms, please note that:

  1. SR reserves the right to not accept any orders if there is a material error in the description of an SR Product, or if the price advertised is incorrect;
  2. SR reserves the right to refuse or discontinue the supply of any SR Product to any customer, or change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Platforms at any time in our sole and absolute discretion;
  3. All prices are displayed in United States Dollars unless expressly indicated otherwise;
  4. Packaging and contents may vary from that shown on the Platforms;
  5. Any weights, dimensions, and capacities shown on the Platforms are approximate only;
  6. When you place an order, we estimate the tax applicable to your order and include that estimate in the total for your convenience (the final tax amount will be based on the then-current rate as established by the taxing authority, charged to your payment card, and reflected in the order confirmation and package invoice we provide to you); and
  7. All items are subject to availability and we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if any product or service you ordered is not available and whether we may offer you an alternative of equal or higher quality and value.
  8. SR will repair or replace a product with new or refurbished parts or product, at SR’s sole option, free of charge, in the event of a defect in materials or workmanship for one (1) year from the date of original purchase.

  9. Except for the limited replacement warranty in the foregoing paragraph, SR does not make, and hereby expressly DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT regarding any and all SR Products. Any assertion or promise made by SR, or any of its representatives or agents, does not create any warranty that any product will conform to the assertion or promise, whether made orally, in writing or otherwise.  
  10. You represent, warrant and covenant that all purchases of SR Products are for your personal consumption and not for resale.

From time to time we may be required to change the Terms of Sale or any other terms applicable to any SR Products that we offer and/or you purchase. This includes, without limitation, changes to prices, taxes, shipping and handling amounts, specifications, delivery times, and/or package contents. We will provide you with prior notice of any changes, by posting a notice on the Platforms, sending an e-mail to you at the address you provided at the time of purchase, or by including a notice in any SR Products you receive on an automatic recurring or subscription basis. SR will not incur any obligation as a result of such change. By continuing to accept SR Products after we have notified you of a change to any terms, you will be deemed to have accepted any changes.

Payment Information

When you provide any information to us for any reason, such as to sign up for an offer or purchase SR Products, you agree to only provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. By providing any credit card or other payment card information to us, you represent that such payment information is correct, and belongs to you or you have the authority to use such payment card.

To help keep your account current and prevent service interruption, you acknowledge SR may request that you update your payment card information on file when it is set to expire or based on updates it receives from the bank that issues your payment card. You agree that your placement of an electronic order on the Platforms is sufficient to satisfy any applicable Statute of Frauds, and no further writing is required.

 

PRODUCT WARNINGS - IMPORTANT!!!

CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN. The risk of injury from using the SR Products is significant, and includes the potential for catastrophic injury and/or even death. You should and must consult your physician before using any SR Product. You should also see your physician immediately if you feel chest or stomach pain, nausea, dizziness, palpitations, or are having breathing difficulties.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. Not all exercise products and programs are suitable for everyone. Using SR Products may involve strenuous activity, so learning and practicing the proper use and care of any SR Product is imperative. Always listen to your own body and take breaks, modify movements, or stop your workouts as necessary. Stop exercising immediately if you experience discomfort or pain.

READ ALL ACCOMPANYING MATERIALS. Familiarize yourself with all safety and instructional materials prior to using any SR Product. Read, understand, and follow all specific warnings and instructions contained in the Product literature when using any SR Product.

EASY DOES IT. Begin each exercise slowly, especially if you are new to exercise or out of condition, in order to safely build coordination, strength and stamina. This will also help you to learn proper form, balance and coordination. Breathe naturally; do not hold your breath during exercise. Never over-exert yourself or perform a move to the point at which you feel you may lose balance or control.

BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS. Only exercise or use any SR Product on a clear, even surface, after you have removed all obstructive materials and sharp objects from the area. Remove all jewelry, including rings, chains, and pins, before using any SR Product. Always wear suitable clothing when exercising.

ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK

By buying, using, providing, or allowing the use of the SR Products, including without limitation any and all goods, products or services, YOU EXPRESSLY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUME THE RISK OF ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INJURIES THAT COULD BE SUSTAINED (AND EVEN THE RISK OF DEATH), whether or not caused by negligence or other fault of SR, including but not limited to, equipment malfunction from whatever cause, or any other fault of SR.

INDEMNIFICATION

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless SR, (including, without limitation, all related and affiliated entities and their respective directors, officers, shareholders, agents and representatives, and each of their respective successors and assigns) from and against any and all claims, actions, losses, damages, liabilities, expenses, costs or demands, including, but not limited to, reasonable legal fees and expenses, for all damages directly or indirectly resulting or allegedly resulting from (i) your use, misuse, or inability to use the Platforms, Our Content or any SR Products offered or made available on the Platforms, (ii) your breach or violation of any of these Terms of Use, (iii) Your Content or Comments (as defined below), (iv) any inaccurate or incomplete data or any Harmful Code transmitted by you, (v) any violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations by you or Your Content or Comments, and (vi) your order cancellation for products, goods or services, including but not limited to, the cost of special materials, the cost of custom or non-stock products completed or in process, and any reasonable costs incurred to collect such losses from you. SR shall promptly notify you in writing of any such claim or suit, and cooperate fully (at your expense) in the defense of such claim or suit. If SR does not hear from you promptly, SR reserves the right to defend such claim or suit and seek full recompense from you. Without limitation of the foregoing, you may not settle, compromise, or dispose of any claim in any other manner without our express written consent. Your obligation to indemnify and defend SR as set forth in this section shall include reimbursement of any and all legal fees and related costs and expenses incurred by SR in connection with any such claim.

COMMENTS

From time to time, SR may request your feedback or suggestions, including any ideas, comments, recommendations or the like (collectively, “Comments”). To the extent you submit Comments to SR, such Comments will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. Furthermore, any disclosure, submission or offer of any Comments shall constitute an assignment to us of all worldwide right, title and interest in all patent, copyright, trademark and all other intellectual property and other rights whatsoever in and to the Comments and a waiver of any claim based on moral, publicity or privacy rights, unfair competition, breach of implied contract, breach of confidentiality and any other legal theory. You agree, at our cost, to execute any documents to effect, record or perfect such assignment. Thus, we will own exclusively all such right, title and interest in, and shall not be limited in any way in the use, commercial or otherwise, of any Comments. You should not submit any Comments to us if you do not wish to assign such rights to us. We are and will be under no obligation: (i) to maintain any Comments in confidence; (ii) to pay to you or any third party any compensation for any Comments; or (iii) to respond to any Comments. You are and shall remain solely responsible for any Comments you make or provide to us.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

From time to time in the course of using the Platforms, you may have access to certain confidential information of SR (“SR Confidential Information”). For clarity, as used in these Terms of Use, “SR Confidential Information” means all nonpublic or proprietary information disclosed by or on behalf of SR, otherwise learned by you in the course of using the Platforms, which is (i) designated as confidential or proprietary; or (ii) a reasonable person would conclude is confidential or proprietary. SR Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to, the following (whether furnished before or after you start using the Platforms, whether disclosed orally, electronically, in writing or visual inspection of the Platforms): (a) graphics and content of the Platforms; (b) information relating to SR’s products, plans, specifications, designs, formulas, ideas, inventions, know-how, processes, techniques, practices, methodologies, policies and procedures, manuals and handbooks, testing, research and development; (c) information regarding acquiring, protecting, enforcing and licensing SR’s proprietary rights including intellectual property rights; (d) information relating to SR’s financials, employees, manufacturing and other supply partners, customers; and (e) any and all copies, reproductions, notes, analyses, compilations, studies, interpretations and summaries of any of the above items, regardless of who prepares them. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SR Confidential Information does not include any information that you can demonstrate by documentary evidence (1) is or has become publicly available through no wrongful act or omission attributable to you; (2) is or becomes rightfully known to you through a third party who is not subject to a restriction on disclosure; or (3) is independently developed by you without the use of or reference to SR Confidential Information.

You agree not to use SR Confidential Information for any purpose other than as required to use the Platforms in accordance with these Terms of Use (the "Purpose"). You agree to hold all SR Confidential Information in strict confidence using at least the degree of care you would use to protect your most sensitive information and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care. You agree to not publish, disseminate, or otherwise disclose, or permit or facilitate the disclosure of, any SR Confidential Information to any third party. To the extent required for the Purpose as authorized by SR in writing, you may disclose SR Confidential Information only to your employees, directors, officers and agents ("Representatives") who have a need to know such information to carry out the Purpose and are bound to obligations of confidentiality (either by written agreement or applicable law) which are no less restrictive than those set forth in these Terms of Use. You agree to be responsible for all acts and omissions of your Representatives. Any copy, extract, portion, or derivative of SR Confidential Information shall be identified as belonging to SR and prominently marked "confidential."

INTERNATIONAL USERS

The Platforms are controlled, operated, and administered by SR from its offices within the U.S. SR makes no representation or warranty that the materials contained within the Platforms are appropriate or available for use at other locations outside of the U.S., and access to the Platforms from territories where the content or products available through the Platforms are illegal is prohibited. If you access the Platforms from a location outside of the U.S., you are responsible for compliance with any and all local laws, rules, regulations and ordinances. You may not use the Platforms or export the Content or SR Products in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. SR may limit the availability of the Platforms to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction it chooses, at any time in SR’s sole discretion.

DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT NOTICE

Except as expressly provided above, nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring any license or right under any copyright or any other intellectual property right. It is our policy to respond appropriately to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), including by removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. If you are an owner of intellectual property who believes that your intellectual property has been improperly posted or distributed via the Platforms, please notify us immediately by email to SR’s agent regarding copyright matters at info@sportsresearch.com or by U.S. mail to Sports Research Corporation, 784 Channel Street, San Pedro, California 90731. DMCA notices must be in writing and must include all of the following information:

  1. a physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright that is allegedly infringed;
  2. a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
  3. a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Platforms or as part of any SR Product;
  4. your address, telephone number, and email address and all other information reasonably sufficient to permit SR to contact you;
  5. a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP

It is possible that SR and/or any of our assets may be acquired by an unrelated third party. In such a transaction, we may be required to disclose or sell any information you provide via the Platforms as an asset of the company in conjunction with the sale of our company or the sale of a portion of our assets to a third party. While we will endeavor to require the successor company to maintain these Terms of Use, we cannot guarantee that our Terms of Use will remain in effect.

MODIFICATIONS TO AND DISCONTINUATION OF AVAILABILITY OF SR PRODUCTS

SR reserves the right at any time, and from time to time, to modify, terminate or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the SR Products or their availability (or any portion thereof including any Content) with or without notice, at its sole discretion. You agree that SR shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the SR Products.

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

You and SR agree that in the event of any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of, relating to or connected in any way with your use of any of the SR Products or the breach, enforcement, interpretation or validity of these Terms of Use (each, a “Claim”), the Claim will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration, except as otherwise provided in these Terms of Use. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit and uses a neutral arbitrator to resolve the Claim rather than a jury. Arbitration is subject to limited review by courts but arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. YOU AND SR ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each of the parties may bring an action in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of a party’s intellectual property.

You and SR agree to use good faith efforts to resolve any Claims within thirty (30) days following written notice by either party that a Claim has arisen. If the parties cannot resolve the Claim within such time period, then the Claim shall be determined by a single arbitrator through Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services ("JAMS"), in the County of Los Angeles. Alternatively, if it is determined or these Terms of Use provide that a Claim should not proceed through arbitration, each of you and SR agree that the Claim will be resolved exclusively in federal court in the County of Los Angeles (the “Venue”) and waive any objections as to personal jurisdiction in the Venue. The then-current JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures shall apply. All fees charged by JAMS shall be split equally by you and SR, but each party shall be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees. If the Claim is less than $10,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted solely on the basis of the documents submitted to the arbitrator. You hereby acknowledge and agree that SR may effect service of process by email to the address provided by you to SR. Each of the parties waives the right to personal service.

You and SR agree that all Claims will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws principles and the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). Any Claims must be raised within one (1) year after the event which gives rise to the Claim and may only be brought in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You agree that, to the extent permitted by law: (a) any and all Claims will be resolved individually in the Venue designated above, without resort to any form of class action; and (b) any judgments and awards will be limited to actual third-party, out-of-pocket costs incurred, but in no event will attorneys’ fees be awarded or recoverable.

GENERAL

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect the effectiveness or validity of any provision in any other jurisdiction, and these Terms of Use will be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such provision had never been contained herein. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and SR as a result of these Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, our Terms of Sale or any use of the SR Products. SR’s performance of these Terms of Use is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in these Terms of Use, Privacy Policy or our Terms of Sale is in derogation of SR’s right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the SR Products or information provided to or gathered by SR with respect to such use. These Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and our Terms of Sale constitute the entire agreement between you and SR with respect to the SR Products, and they supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and SR with respect to the SR Products. We may provide notice to you hereunder by posting announcements to the Platforms. Any rule of law or legal decision that would require interpretation of any ambiguities in these Terms of Use against the party that has drafted it is not applicable and is waived to the fullest extent allowed by law. The provisions of these Terms of Use shall be interpreted in a reasonable manner to effectuate the purpose of the parties and these Terms of Use.

NOTICES

Unless explicitly stated otherwise in the Platforms, you must provide all notices or complaints to SR via email to info@sportsresearch.com or by U.S. mail to Sports Research Corporation, 784 Channel Street, San Pedro, California 90731.
