B. Counter-Notification

If access on the Platform to a work that you submitted to FitSwop is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:

(i) a subject line that says: “DMCA Counter-Notification”;

(ii) a description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled (please include the URL of the Platform from which the material was removed or access to it disabled);

However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Platform. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.

15. Product License

A.     License

Platform users own and maintain the intellectual property rights in their Products and grant users licenses to use such Products for limited use as described in this section. When you purchase a Product, you’re purchasing a license to use the Product in accordance with these Terms. All downloadable and digitally consumed Products can only be used in accordance with the license granted herein as well as any additional terms the seller provides, to the extent that such terms do not conflict with these Terms, except that sellers may grant certain additional rights to their Products. Each license that may only be assigned to a single specific individual user (“Assignee”) for that Assignee’s lifetime use. Licenses are non-transferable and may not be used by any other individual or reallocated.   Except as otherwise stated in these Terms, the seller grants to the purchasing user, for use by one Assignee, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide, limited license to use the Product for the purposes and under the conditions described below. The seller may grant additional rights at their discretion. If you purchase a license, the seller permits you to assign use of the Product to one Assignee. Once an Assignee has been designated, the Product cannot be used by any other individual without purchase of an additional license. You may not reallocate a license from one user to another or share the Product with additional users unless you purchase an additional license. As an Assignee of a license, the seller permits you to: (i) use the Product for personal, or internal business use only (“Personal Use”); and (ii) print and make copies of downloadable Products as necessary for Personal Use. Hard Products and video Products may not be copied, shared, or otherwise reproduced. Unless otherwise expressly permitted by the seller: you may not use the Product, in part or in whole, for commercial purposes. This means you can’t sell it, use it for advertising or marketing purposes, or use it in any other way in connection with a business or profit making activity. You may not post or otherwise make the Product available on any website. You may not share, send, sell, sublicense, or transfer the Product to someone else for their own Personal Use unless you purchase an additional license for each individual you will share it with. Each license is for use by one specific individual.

B.     Limitation

We cannot guarantee continuous access to any Product through our Platform. If at any time, we stop hosting a Product for any reason or you or FitSwop terminates, suspends, downgrades, or otherwise limits your access to the Platform, your ability to access the Product through our Platform may be terminated. It’s your responsibility to maintain and store a copy of downloadable Products on your device to ensure future access. If you purchase access to a Product in the format of streaming video or other non-downloadable formats, your license will expire if you or FitSwop closes your account, or if we stop hosting the Product for any reason.

C.     Your Grant

When a user purchases a license to use your Product or downloads free Products from you, you allow them to use your Product as described in Section 14(a) of these Terms above, and any other terms you expressly set forth in writing in connection with such Products (as long as any additional terms do not conflict with these Terms). For clarity, you may, at your discretion and in accordance with these Terms and any other policies set forth by us, grant additional rights to purchasers of your Products, but you may not enforce limitations on such use that are inconsistent with the rights granted herein.

16. Payment

A.   Purchasing

All sales are considered final and nonrefundable once an order is submitted. We may, in our sole discretion, modify our refund policy or, on a case-by-case basis, issue a refund for a reason that we determine as necessary. Sellers can view a refund and any applicable refund note in their account. Sellers may authorize a full or partial refund for any reason by contacting us.  We may offer a variety of payment methods to pay for purchases, such as a credit and debit card, PayPal Account, or otherwise trough a trusted third party payment processor. We accept payments in United States Dollars (USD). Cash payments and payments in other currencies will not be accepted. We may change or add to our accepted payment methods at any time and we are not obligated to accept payment by any means other than those accepted at the time of your purchase.  When you buy something on the Platform (including Products, accounts, memberships, and other products or services we may offer), you represent and warrant that you’re authorized to make the purchase and to use the payment method and billing information you’ve provided. You further agree that we may charge your payment method the amount due, which will be in U.S. Dollars. We are not responsible for any additional fees you may be charged by your financial institution such as international transaction fees or overdraft fees. If we receive notice that you’ve disputed a charge related to a purchase made from your account, we may, at our discretion, offer proof to challenge the dispute. Pending resolution of the dispute, we may remove the purchased Products from your account temporarily, or, if a refund is ultimately issued, permanently. In our discretion, we may take further action against your account.

B.   Payouts

Sellers earn a percentage of the list price of each Product they sell through our Platform based on the payout rate that applies to their subscription type (“Earnings”). Earnings are reduced by the full amount of any transaction fees that apply, and increased by the full amount of any shipping fees charged. Earnings are paid in monthly payouts (“Payouts”).  Sellers must maintain a minimum balance of $25.00 to receive a Payout. To issue Payouts, we work with third party companies which process and transfer funds between us and our sellers, currently PayPal (“Payment Services”). To receive Payouts, sellers must have an account capable of receiving payments with a supported Payment Service (“Payout Account”). If you have questions about the status of your Payout Account, please reach out directly to the Payment Service you use. We make no guarantees about the services offered by any third party companies including the current or any future Payment Services we may support, and we are not responsible for any payment delays or other complications caused by Payment Services. We may, at our discretion, modify the list of supported Payment Services at any time, discontinue support for an existing Payout Service, or make additional Payout options available.  We may, at our sole discretion, withhold or delay a Payout due to any seller who we believe to be in violation of any of these Terms. After the matter is resolved, we will either refund the withheld sales or complete the Payout.  Payment Services may assess transaction fees when we transfer your Payouts to you. We will deduct from your Payout an amount equal to or less than the transaction fee assessed to us by the Payment Services. These transaction fees are subject to change at the discretion of the Payment Services. We are not responsible for any additional fees or taxes you may incur from other third parties related to receiving or accessing your Payouts.

C.   Taxes

Many states have enacted Marketplace Facilitation laws that impose an obligation on the Marketplace Facilitator to collect and remit sales tax on behalf of Marketplace Sellers.

As a Marketplace Facilitator, FitSwop will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax, where required, on taxable sales by sellers for transactions destined to states where Marketplace Facilitation legislation is enacted.

The list of states, with effective dates, where FitSwop will calculate, collect, and remit tax as a Marketplace Facilitator can be found here.  This list will be updated from time to time.

18.       Dispute Resolution

A. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Platform, the Content, your User-Generated Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms (collectively, “Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it.

Any arbitration shall be held in Cincinnati, Ohio and to the extent an action at law is permitted hereunder, you consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The parties will split the arbitrator’s fee. Disputes will be resolved only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other claims, suits or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.

Unless otherwise required by applicable law without the possibility of contractual waiver or limitation:(i) neither party will bring a legal action, regardless of form, for any claim arising out of or related to these Terms (or any applicable Additional Terms) more than two (2) years after the cause of action arose; and (ii) upon the expiration of such time limit, any such claim and all respective rights related to the claim lapse.
