The user declares not to send spam or any other communications which is undesired by the receiver, being commercial or otherwise, including, but not limited to, threatening, aggressive, obscene, ignominious, offensive, privacy infringing or commercial communications. Any acts contrary to these conditions can – as with the other conditions – result in immediate denial of access and use of the products and services of Virtuagym and termination of the user license.

Information from Third Parties
The products may contain information from third parties or refer thereto, including but not restricted to information created by users, advertisements, banners and/or website links (hereafter: “Information from Third Parties”).
Information from Third Parties generally is and cannot be previously checked by Virtuagym, which means that we cannot guarantee the quality and validity thereof. Virtuagym is not responsible or liable for Information from Third Parties, nor for the possible direct or indirect damage that may result from it.
After a report of unlawful conduct, Virtuagym will investigate the presence of unlawful information in one or more of the products within a reasonable time and will take action against it if possible.

a) The URL where the alleged unlawful information can be found.
b) An explicit statement of the reporter that the material is unlawful and why.
c) In case it is a case of infringement of rights of intellectual property, the reporter needs to substantiate that he / she is the rightful owner of said rights, and to which extent the information infringes said rights.

e) The reporter’s name, e-mail address, mailing address and phone number.
The listed prices of the products are in Euros or USD, as applicable, and exclude value-added tax, unless explicitly stated otherwise. All listed prices are conditional and can be adjusted without prior notice. User shall direct questions with respect to license fees to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Increases to the license fee are calculated automatically every month, taking into account the selected modules and other determining information. For example, when the number of coaches applicable to a given user changes from 5 to 7, the program will adjust the license automatically for the following month. Our systems are unable to process decreases in the license fee on an automated basis and therefore any factors that would result in a decrease of the license fee (e.g., decrease in number of coaches or locations) must be communicated to us at email@example.com at least 14 calendar days prior to any change being able to take effect. No decrease in license fee shall cause the license fee to be less than such amount that was applicable at the start of the then-current one-year license period for the applicable term during such term; provided, however, that beginning with the start of the next one-year license period following such decrease, such fee may revert to that which existed at the start of the previous one-year license period depending on the number of coaches, but no less. Any license fees due will be collected automatically on a monthly basis within up to five days in advance of the invoice period.
The license duration is for a period of 12 months. After 12 months, your license will automatically be renewed for consecutive 12 month periods. Your license can be terminated at the end of every 12 month period, taking into account a required cancellation notice of one month prior to the end of said period.
Any termination, regardless of the reason thereof, shall entitle Virtuagym to require payment of the full amount owed under the applicable License Agreement as if the full license period thereunder had been completed in full.
If an invoice has not been paid within 30 days after it has come due, Virtuagym has the right to increase the total amount payable immediately by 10% and increase this amount by another 5% for each 30-day period that passes in which such invoice remains unpaid, or the maximum amount allowed in a specific country. User is limited to thirty days following issuance of any invoice to object thereto or user shall be deemed to have consented thereto.
The products and services of Virtuagym shall be delivered as soon as possible or within the agreed period after payment. Virtuagym reserves the right to restrict access in the event of repeated non-payment or delayed payments for any product or service. Virtuagym accepts no liability for any damage in case the delivery takes place after the agreed period.

Buying an Ebook
When buying an ebook on business.vituagym.com, there is no refund possible.
Creation of Branded Applications
In addition to any other applicable terms thereto, due to policy changes implemented by Apple with respect to its app store, Virtuagym is unable to publish branded applications with Apple for clients except where (1) client is registered with Apple as a legal business entity (e.g., corporation, LLC) rather than by an individual account and (2) client must have access to an Apple device capable of being used to create a developer account and have such an account and make necessary payments as required thereby. Virtuagym cannot be held liable for changes in policy or actions otherwise made by Apple, which result directly or indirectly in additional costs, decrease in income or other changes which may negatively influence the user.
Modifications to the Products
Virtuagym explicitly reserves the right at any time to modify, stop or change all or a part thereof of one or more of its products or services, for a determined period or in perpetuity, without prior notification or after to the user, whether it concerns paid or unpaid products. This may also result in inaccessibility or loss of a part or the whole of the Shared Information, including the Shared Information of the user. Virtuagym cannot be held liable for any direct or indirect damage resulting thereof. In case of such a modification of the products, for whatever reason, the user will have on his request the (already) paid amounts to Virtuagym or her partners refunded pro rata, subject to the discretion of Virtuagym. For the avoidance of doubt, user shall have no right to pause the license period for any of the products or services; any such action shall be in the sole discretion of Virtuagym.

Virtuagym cannot and does not guarantee that the products or services are available at any moment at any location, and that said availability will occur safely, or that any errors will be solved or that the products will be free from viruses or other potentially damaging software or parts.
The user acknowledges that the products may contain potential defects and accepts the risks for any direct or indirect damage that may occur thereof. In no case shall Virtuagym be held liable by user or any third-parties in the case of damages resulting directly or indirectly in the case of any defect in its products or services. Virtuagym’s liability shall in any case be limited to the equivalent of six months license paid by the user or EURO 2,500.00, whichever is less. The user cannot terminate any agreement with Virtuagym based on actual or perceived non-compliance with any term thereof.
