12. Prices and Payment Terms.
(a) All prices posted on the Site and/or Services are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a Product or Service will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after such changes. Price decreases for active subscriptions may occur with notice to existing subscribers. Posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling. All such taxes and charges will be added to your merchandise total and will be itemized in your shopping cart and in your order confirmation email. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors in any offer by us and we reserve the right to cancel any orders arising from such errors.
(b) Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us at the time of purchase, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. You represent and warrant that (i) the debit or credit card information you supply to us is true, correct, and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such debit or credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your debit or credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.
(c) Unless you have selected a free version of a Service, the Services are paid, auto-renewing subscription Services. You will be charged the stated subscription amount for the subscription period upon completion of your registration and submission of your payment information unless your membership includes a free trial period.
(d) If you accepted an offer with a free trial for access to the Site or the App, your membership begins when you have completed the free trial sign-up process (i.e., when we collect your personal and payment information). At the end of your free trial, you will begin to be billed automatically according to the membership term you have selected. If you cancel your free trial membership at any time during the free trial period, you will not be charged.
(e) If you have selected a monthly membership, you will be billed automatically each month (about every 30 days) until you cancel. If you have selected an annual membership, you will bill automatically every 365 days until you cancel. If you have selected a two-year membership, you will bill automatically every 730 days until you cancel. Once we begin to bill you, cancellations take effect starting at the end of your current billing period, meaning there are no partial month refunds or credits.
(f) You are agreeing that upon expiration of the initial subscription or free trial period, your subscription will automatically renew for successive periods, as described above. You agree to automatic (recurring) billing and agree to pay the charges made to your Account in connection therewith. You will be billed at the then-current applicable subscription price plus any applicable taxes. We will process payment for any renewal subscriptions using the same billing cycle as your current subscription. Subscription fees may change at any time, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. Your Subscription, and the recurring billing of your Account, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. If you provide a payment method and our charge results in an overdraft, chargeback or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee. EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SUBSCRIPTION OR ACCESS THE SERVICES, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED.
(g) We refer to any additional, paid subscription Services we offer beyond the Site and Services as an “Add-On Service.” For example, our personalized coaching service is an Add-On Service. Each Add-On Service is a separate subscription service and is subject to an additional fee that automatically renews just like your regular subscription.

MERACH Service. Except with respect to Your Content and other User Content, you acknowledge and agree that MERACH and its suppliers own all right, title, and interest in and to the MERACH Service (including but not limited to, any computer code, layouts, designs, user interfaces, themes, objects, characters, character names, dialogue, concepts, artwork, animations, sounds, musical compositions, audiovisual effects, methods of operation, moral rights, documentation, and MERACH software).

Our partners or service providers may also have additional proprietary rights in the content that they make available through the MERACH Service.

(a) We will arrange for shipment of the Products to you. Please check the individual product page for specific delivery options. You will pay all shipping and handling charges specified during the ordering process.

15. Member Interactions, Dealings with Third Parties
When interacting with other MERACH members, you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your personal safety and property, just as you would when interacting with other people you don’t know.

You agree that MERACH is not responsible or liable for any loss, damage, injury, or other matters of any sort incurred as the result of such dealings. In addition, when visiting or taking classes at any of our studios, please be advised that MERACH is not responsible for any lost or stolen items and that visitors, guests and members are required to adhere to then-current policies in place at that studio and the directions of that studio’s employees and representatives.
16. Returns and Refunds.

The customer is responsible for shipping the Products back. You bear the risk of loss during shipment.
Because of the size and weight of our fitness products, we do not offer a refund for any shipping or delivery charges that you may have paid to receive your MERACH Product.
Returns made outside of our 30-Day Home Trial must be approved and will be charged an additional return shipping fee depending on your location.
Refunds will be made in the form of the original payment. Any credit for gift returns will be issued to the original purchaser. All returns must be in original/sellable condition and include the original packaging with all tags attached. Only items purchased from merachfit.com can be accepted for return.

21. Arbitration Agreement; Class Waiver; Jury Waiver.
(a) YOU AND MERACH ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR PURCHASE OR USE OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
(b) The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Section. (The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(c) You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR MERACH WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.

You will not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms. MERACH may assign its rights, obligations and/or these Terms at any time in its sole discretion without notice to you.
