Coaching Sessions and Financial Terms for Clients

The Coaches, and not Amp-It, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Coaching Sessions and completing any Coaching Sessions reserved through the Platform. If Amp-It or selected Coach cancels a booked Coaching Session, any amounts collected by Amp-It for the corresponding Coaching Session will be refunded to such Client, as applicable. If Client does not attend or cancels a booked Coaching Session, no amounts collected by Amp-It for the corresponding Coaching Session will be refunded to such Client.

If you choose to enter into any agreement with a Coach outside the Platform, Amp-It will not be a party to such agreement and disclaims all liability arising from or related to the same.

To establish a Coaching Session, Amp-It will collect the total price of the Coaching Session in accordance with the pricing terms on the Platform. Please note that Amp-It cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Client by his or her bank related to Amp-It’s collection of payment, and Amp-It disclaims all liability in this regard.

In connection with your requested Coaching Session, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to Amp-It or PayPal, its third party payment processor. You agree to pay Amp-It for any Coaching Sessions made in connection with the Platform in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods described on the Platform. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card provided as part of requesting the Coaching Session via PayPal. If you are directed to PayPal, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of that third party’s service and that third party’s personal information collection practices. Please review such terms and conditions and privacy policy before using the services. Once your Coaching Session is purchased you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your Coaching Session.

Communications Decency Act

Although our Code of Conduct prohibit users from posting defamatory material, we cannot ensure that it does not occur due to our limited editorial resources. Under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, we are not liable for defamatory material published by third parties (such as our users) on our website.

We recommend that you report any alleged defamation by third parties to us with full details of who you are and how the material is defamatory and, if we agree it is defamatory, we may remove it. However, do not attempt to sue us, whether or not we remove such material, as we are not liable due to the Communications Decency Act and will attempt to recover any attorneys’ fees, costs, and disbursements from you that are incurred as a result of defending against such an unfounded lawsuit.

Additionally, due to the SPEECH Act 2010, you cannot attempt to sue us in another country for defamation and then attempt to domesticate the judgment in the United States to enforce it.

If it is unclear to us whether something is defamatory or not, regardless of whether it is a legal or factual lack of clarity, we will likely not remove the complained-about content. However, we may remove it in such instances if you produce for us a court order or declaration from within the United States declaring the specific content complained about to be unlawful.

Note that any actions we take to police defamatory material on our website and platform are strictly voluntary, and we reserve all rights under the Communications Decency Act, as well as any other statutory, constitutional, or common law defenses.

If you believe that Amp-It, rather than a third party, has posted defamatory material, please contact us with full details at terms@amp-it.com so that we can mitigate any alleged loss as soon as possible.

Representations & Warranties

We make no representations or warranties as to the merchantability of our Content, Platform, or Services or fitness for any particular purpose. You agree that you are releasing us from any liability that we may otherwise have to you in relation to or arising from this Agreement or our products, for reasons including, but not limited to, failure of our service, loss of income, negligence, or any tort or other cause of action. To the extent that applicable law restricts this release of liability, you agree that we are only liable to you for the minimum amount of damages that the law restricts our liability to, if such a minimum exists.

You agree that we are not responsible in any way for offers made by third parties through our website.

We are not liable for any failure of our service, including any failures or disruptions, scheduled or unscheduled, intentional or unintentional, on our website which prevent access to our website temporarily or permanently.

You acknowledge and agree that our website may become unavailable at any given time, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice, and we will not be liable to you for any loss therefrom.

The provision of our service to you is contingent on your agreement with this and all other sections of this Agreement. Nothing in the provisions of this “Representations & Warranties” section shall be construed to limit the generality of the first paragraph of this section.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Amp-It and its principals, shareholders, agents, officers, directors, consultants, and employees from or against third-party claims, damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses arising from or relating to any third-party claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of the breach of Amp-It representations and warranties contained herein.

External Links

We may link to third-party websites from our own website including, among other things, coach websites or third-party payment processors. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, these third-party websites or their use of your personal information. We recommend that you review their privacy policies and other agreements governing your use of their website.

Notices

You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email (using the email address you provide to us either during the registration process or when you updated your email address) or by posting notices on this Platform. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. In addition to, but not in limitation of the foregoing, except as explicitly stated otherwise, any notices to us shall be given by email.

Choice of Law

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of Virginia. The offer and acceptance of this contract is deemed to have occurred in the State of Virginia.

Forum of Dispute

You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Virginia. Specifically, you agree that any disputes shall be heard, where eligible, solely within the Civil Court of the Virginia—Small Claims Part (“Small Claims Court”).

You agree that where the amount you would otherwise claim exceeds the monetary jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, which at the time of the publication of this Agreement is up to $5,000, you will waive your right to collect any damages in excess of the monetary jurisdiction and instead only sue us for the maximum amount of $5,000.

Likewise, if you have multiple causes of action, you agree that if your claim would be eligible to be heard by the Small Claims Court, except that one or more of the causes of action or other rights to collect damages would not be eligible for the Small Claims Court to hear, you will waive your right to claim damages for any of the ineligible claims and instead still bring the dispute in the Small Claims Court for only the claim or claims over which the Small Claims Court has jurisdiction to hear.

Likewise, if you would otherwise have any non-monetary remedies available to you outside of the Small Claims Court, such as the right to an injunction, specific performance, or other equitable relief, you agree that you will waive your right to obtain such relief against us. If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so.

You agree that the prevailing party in any dispute will be entitled to claim from the unsuccessful party the entire amount of the prevailing party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and disbursements in relation to the dispute.

Assignment

These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Amp-It without restriction.

This Agreement may not be assigned, in whole or in part, by a Coach or any other party without the prior written consent of Amp-It, and such consent may be withheld for any reason or no reason.

Force Majeure

You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labor shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, postal disruption, communication disruption, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.

Miscellaneous

These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy, and any other legal notices published by Amp-It on the Platform, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Amp-It concerning the Platform, your use of the Services and any Content. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any one provision set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and Amp-It’s failure to assert or enforce any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Amendments

We may amend these Terms from time to time, and the amended version will be posted on our website in place of the old version and it is your responsibility to check these terms for any amendments. We will also include the date that the currently displayed Terms took effect to help you determine whether there have been any changes since you last used our website. Like our Privacy Policy, you must visit this page each time you come to our website and read and agree to it if the date it was last modified is more recent than the last time you agreed to the Terms. If you do not agree to the new Terms, you must immediately cease using our Content, Platform, and Services.
