RESERVATIONS AND CHARGES

BoxUnion offers various packages for classes, ranging from one to multiple classes per package and also offers various other services, including semi-private and private training sessions. Once a package is purchased, Participants will receive a class Credit in their account for each BoxUnion class purchased in the package. “Credit” refers to any credit to take a BoxUnion class, whether purchased or complimentary. All Participants and Members must create a BoxUnion account (“Account”) before taking a class.

All Participants must arrive by the start of class to guarantee their bag. We reserve the right to offer the reservation to another Participant if the booked Participant does not call ahead or is more than eight (8) minutes late.

CLASS CANCELLATION

Reserved classes may be cancelled without penalty 12 hours in advance of the scheduled class at www.BoxUnion.com (the “BoxUnion Website”) under My Account or through the BoxUnion mobile application (the “BoxUnion App”) on the Reserve or Reservation Details page. Each reservation not cancelled 12 hours in advance of the scheduled class will result in the forfeiture of the Credit used to reserve the class. (Please see below for the class cancellation policy for Memberships.)

WAITLIST

If no reservations are available for a particular class, Participants may join the waitlist. As spots become available, class reservations are offered by email or text (depending on when the reservation becomes available) to Participants on the waitlist on a first come, first served basis. If a Participant is offered and accepts a reservation off the waitlist but fails to attend the class, it will result in the forfeiture of the Credit used to reserve the class. (Please see below for the class cancellation policy for Memberships.)

EXPIRATION AND TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDITS

Credits have an expiration date as described in the Credit, package or promotion details provided at the time of purchase. Once purchased, the expiration date or period can also be found on the BoxUnion App or the BoxUnion Website. Credits are non-refundable and cannot be resold.

MEMBERSHIP

BoxUnion offers various memberships for unlimited BoxUnion classes. Specific details for each of the Memberships, including the commitment period, can be found on the BoxUnion Website and BoxUnion App and/or in the promotional details provided at the time of purchase. Memberships cannot be shared or transferred, and any attempt to share or transfer a Membership will result in cancellation of the Membership, at BoxUnion's sole discretion, without a refund.

If a Member requests a Membership downgrade, the change will take effect on the billing date following the Member's request. Membership dues will not be prorated or refunded based on the date of the Membership downgrade request.

If a Member requests a Membership upgrade, the Member will have immediate access to their upgraded membership. The Member will be charged a prorated amount for the remainder of the monthly billing cycle, and the Membership upgrade will be reflected in the Member's next billing date.

Some Membership changes, such as change to the membership type, will cause the commitment period to restart

CANCELLATION POLICY

Members may cancel a class without penalty 12 hours in advance of the class at the BoxUnion Website under My Account or through the BoxUnion App on the Upcoming Class page. Each reservation not cancelled 12 hours in advance will result in a fee equal to the price of a single class, which will be charged directly to Member's credit card. The fee cannot be paid for with a class Credit unless a Credit was used to make the reservation.

WAITLIST

If no reservations are available for a particular class, Members may join the waitlist. As they become available, class reservations are offered by email or text to Members on the waitlist on a first come, first served basis. If Member is offered and obtains a reservation off the waitlist but fails to attend the class, it will result in a fee equal to the price of a single class and will be charged directly to Member's credit card.

MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION POLICY

If you want to cancel your membership at any point, just email info@boxunion.com up to 3 days’ prior to the expiration of the current month, and we will cancel the auto renew. Membership dues will not be prorated based on the date of cancellation. Membership dues are non-refundable.

PAYMENTS

UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED BY BOXUNION IN WRITING, MEMBERSHIP CHARGES WILL BEGIN AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE AND RECUR MONTHLY UNTIL CANCELLED BY THE MEMBER IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION POLICY. MEMBERSHIPS BEGIN AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE (AND NOT AT THE TIME OF MEMBER'S FIRST CLASS). THE MONTHLY DUES WILL BE CHARGED AUTOMATICALLY AND ON APPROXIMATELY THE SAME DAY OF THE MONTH THAT THE MEMBERSHIP COMMENCED AND ORIGINAL MEMBERSHIP PAYMENT WAS MADE (the “Billing Date”).

Billing Dates cannot be moved to a different day of the month. If payment does not process successfully, the Membership will automatically become inactive until payment is made. Any lost time that results from payment processing failures will not be reimbursed or credited.

Cancelling a Membership before the end of the commitment period does not relieve Member of payment through the commitment period.

BoxUnion reserves the right to increase its Membership dues from time to time, and will provide Members written notice in advance of any increase and the opportunity to cancel their Membership once the increase is instated. Members who choose to continue their Membership will be charged the increased dues in the next billing cycle after the increase has been implemented. Please note that the advanced written notice and opportunity to cancel does not apply to Memberships that have automatic rate increases as described at the time of purchase.

PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS OF MEMBERS AND PARTICIPANTS

Memberships and Credits are non-refundable. Members and Participants shall not be relieved of the obligation to make payments agreed to, and no deduction from or reimbursement of any payment shall be made, because of Member's or Participant's failure to use BoxUnion's facilities. In other words, Members must continue to pay the rate agreed upon for the duration of the Membership regardless of the number of classes attended. Participants will not be reimbursed or credited any unused Credits in the period allotted for the class package purchased. BoxUnion reserves the right to increase its Membership dues or class/package prices from time to time.

FORM OF PAYMENT

We accept MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Cash payments may only be made at BoxUnion. Payments for Membership dues or classes may not be split between multiple cards, and processed payments may not be refunded in order to charge payment to a different card. Members and Participants maintain full control and privacy over their account at all times.

Once you have provided us with, and agreed to store your credit card information on the BoxUnion Website or the BoxUnion App, you do not need to have your physical credit card on hand to make in-studio purchases. Your in-studio purchases can be applied to the credit card you entered on the BoxUnion Website or the BoxUnion App.

RETURNED PAYMENT PENALTY

Members and Participants will automatically be charged any bank fee imposed on BoxUnion, plus a processing fee of up to $25, for any returned payment due to closed accounts, insufficient funds, or other reason. If this occurs, BoxUnion retains the right to collect the current and past due balances in any month after the returned payment.

DISPUTED CHARGE PENALTY

In the event that a Member or Participant initiates a credit card dispute that is subsequently resolved in BoxUnion's favor, BoxUnion shall have the right to charge the Member or Participant up to $50 per occurrence. Members or Participants who dispute a valid charge for a late cancellation or no-show will be subject to this $50 fee.

CHANGE IN OPERATING HOURS/TEMPORARY CLOSING OF FACILITY

As a result of repair, maintenance, special occasions or events, holidays, acts of God (such as an earthquake), or for other reasons, BoxUnion may elect to restrict the use of or temporarily close its facilities or activities from time to time. There will be no reduction, suspension or reimbursement of Membership dues during such time nor extension of a Membership period as a result of any temporary closing. Also, hours of operation may be amended from time to time, and certain facilities, services or programs may be added or eliminated from time to time, at BoxUnion's sole discretion.

ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS WAIVER

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND BOXUNION TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.

A. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with these Terms and Conditions which cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved, to the extent permitted by applicable law, by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and BoxUnion, its direct and indirect parent, subsidiary affiliate entities, and each of their respective officers, directors, members, employees, shareholders, representatives and agents, and each of their respective successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under these Terms and Conditions.

B. Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to BoxUnion should be sent to: BoxUnion, 1755 Ocean Avenue, Unit 104, Santa Monica, CA 90401, Attention: Legal. After the Notice is received, you and BoxUnion may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and BoxUnion do not resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.

C. Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with these Terms and Conditions. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Arbitration Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than ten thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is ten thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in the city of Los Angeles, California, unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

D. Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online, and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.

E. Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and BoxUnion, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and these Terms and Conditions. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and BoxUnion.

F. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.

G. Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

H. Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.

I. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with BoxUnion.

J. Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or BoxUnion may bring an individual action in small claims court.

K. Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents or emergency equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.

GOVERNING LAW, VENUE AND JURISDICTION

To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms and Conditions to initiate litigation in court, both you and BoxUnion agree that all claims and disputes, including statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be governed in all respects by the substantive law of the state of California, without regard to its conflict of law principles. You and BoxUnion hereby consent to submit to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts sitting in the State of California for any actions, suits or proceedings arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions that are not subject to the Arbitration Agreement.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT

These Terms and Conditions and any other rules, policies and regulations of BoxUnion as revised from time to time, constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior promises, representations, understandings and/or agreements.
