This Terms and Conditions Agreement (the “Agreement”) is between you and World Conscious Yoga Family (Akhanda Yoga) doing business as Akhanda Yoga (“Akhanda Yoga”). The Akhanda Yoga network is comprised of various websites, associated widgets, mobile applications and other distribution platforms (the “Sites”) operated by Akhanda Yoga.
This terms of service agreement applies to all services provided by Akhanda Yoga, whether online or in person, including all online or In-Person classes, Yoga Teacher Trainings, Workshops, and Retreats.
Our website is provided for use from our facilities in Canada. Akhanda can make no representations or warrantee that it will be available, compatible or permitted for use in any other jurisdiction. If connecting with our services from a foreign jurisdiction, you agree that your use depends on your ability to connect with our services and it is your responsibility to ensure that such use complies with local law and requirements of use with your internet service provider.
The Sites are offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein. Your use of the Sites and Services constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.
The services provided by the Sites (the “Services”) are made available for your personal, non-commercial use only. You may not use the Services to sell a product or service, or to increase traffic to your business for commercial reasons, such as advertising sales. If you want to make commercial use of our Services, you must enter into an agreement and do so in advance. Akhanda Yoga is under no obligation to enter into agreements to authorize such a use and may choose to do so in its sole and absolute discretion. Please contact us for more information.
All prices are indicated in USD and subject to applicable taxes. Akhanda Yoga reserves the right to modify services, products and rates at any time. We will not, however, increase the rate you have subscribed to, provided your subscription to our services continues without interruption. Automatic renewal payments will be taken for one month, in advance, fifteen (15) days following you subscribing to this service and every month thereafter. Your subscription will renew and payments will be taken automatically until you choose to cancel your subscription regardless of the degree to which you choose to use the service provided. If you cancel your subscription within the first fifteen (15) day trial period, no payment will be taken. Once a payment is made, no refunds of subscription amounts are available. You may cancel your subscription at any time, without penalty or refund.
You agree that you will not share your username and password with others. Excessive usage of the Sites will be assumed by Akhanda Yoga to be fraudulent use and your account will be immediately cancelled without a refund.
Each individual is only entitled to one free fifteen-day promotional period. Akhanda Yoga will terminate without refund any and all accounts associated with a person attempting to use more than one free promotional period, in any form or by whatever means whatsoever.
