Before making a purchase or attending your first class, you must create a digital profile. You can do this online at www.urbanyoga.yoga or via the Urban Yoga App (“App”). Your profile login will be your e mail. You will need a password for security purposes. You must ensure that your digital profile is always up to date.
Payment for the class or pack you have chosen must be made in advance generally by credit or debit card. If you wish to purchase a membership option, you will need to provide a valid debit or credit card (Visa or Mastercard) and enter in to an agreement with our third party biller Ezidebit. The arrangement will be automatically repeated unless it is cancelled. You can cancel the repeat option by calling the studio on 02 9310 3271. You will be required to give a period of notice equal to the billing frequency (e.g., 1 week if billed weekly).
BOOKINGS AND ATTENDANCE
Classes should be pre booked online or via the App. You may attend classes at our Studio or any other Urban Yoga Studio. Classes will be generally made available for bookings 3 weeks in advance.
If you wish to cancel a booking you must do this at least 12 hours in advance otherwise you will forfeit the class. The only exception that may be agreed to is where there has been a medical or other emergency which has prevented you cancelling within the required time frame and you can prove this.
Classes and packs are valid for the period of time set out in the FAQs. They then expire. Any classes unused by the time of expiry will be forfeited. However, if you become ill or injured and provide satisfactory evidence that your doctor or allied health professional has advised you to temporarily stop exercising we may agree to extend the validity date or expiry time for up to 3 months.
CREDITS AND REFUNDS
We may, at our discretion, offer you a credit or a refund if we don’t keep to our end of the arrangement you have purchased or if you are unable to exercise for a long-term or indefinite period on medical grounds reasonably acceptable to us.
You may transfer any unused classes to a friend or family member if we agree to this and the person you wish to transfer them to accepts the provisions of this Agreement.
YOUR PHYSICAL CONDITION
Before exercising, you should complete a pre exercise questionnaire and provide other all other relevant personal health and fitness information. You must ensure the information you provide is true and accurate. The answers you give in the pre exercise questionnaire may require you to get medical clearance before exercising. You acknowledge that the pre-exercise questionnaire is not, however, a substitute for medical advice and that it does not guarantee against injury or death.
Every time you use Urban Yoga services, it is your responsibility to ensure you are in good physical condition and know of no reason why you should not exercise. If unsure, you must NOT use our services until you have been given the go-ahead by a qualified medical professional. It is also important that you do not use our services if you are suffering from an illness, disease, injury or other condition that could be a risk to your health and safety or that of others.
YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Rules regarding the use of Urban Yoga Studios (if any) will be displayed in Studios or otherwise advised to you. These rules apply to everyone using Urban Yoga services and form part of this Agreement. If you break any of the rules we will respond in a way that we consider fair and appropriate. If you cause us or another person costs, losses or damages by breaking the rules, you agree to pay for these.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
You acknowledge Urban Yoga studio premises may have CCTV security cameras recording 24 hours a day (except in change rooms and toilets) and may have remote video or other guarding services. Such system (if any) is for security purposes but does not guarantee against theft or harm.
CLASS CANCELLATIONS OR STUDIO CLOSURE
We may sometimes need to cancel a class or close the Studio to unavailability of yoga instructors or an emergency. We will try to tell you about any cancellations or closures in advance but may not always be able to. Any classes lost as a result of our cancellations or closures will be added back to your account for you to rebook.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY UNDER THE ACL
Under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) in the Competition and Consumer Act (CCA) we guarantee that services we supply are: provided with due care and skill; reasonably fit for the purpose you have told us you are using them for or told us you wish to achieve; and/or are supplied in a reasonable time.
Under certain legislative provisions, however, we can ask you to accept some limitations to these guarantees. If you agree to make a purchase under these Terms, you agree (to the extent allowed under 139A of the CCA) to exclude or modify our liability to you for death or injury from our failure to comply with ACL. This does not apply if your death or injury is caused by our “reckless conduct”.
CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT
We may sometimes make changes to this Agreement (including our Pricing and our Studio Rules). If we do this, we will try to do this fairly and by giving you prior notice.
COMPLAINTS AND FEEDBACK
If you have any concerns or feedback about your purchase, our services or our Studio, please first raise it with Studio staff. If you are uncomfortable about approaching, or do not wish to approach, Studio staff, or are not happy with their response, you may send a complaint to [email protected]
