These Terms of Service cover the terms on which you as an Event Organiser, hereinafter referred to as Partner, may use the Site and create events for our App users to book and attend. Please read them regularly as they may change from time to time.

By using or accessing the Site, you agree to these Terms, which govern the relationship between you and Fitu, as well as the relationship between you and our App users, in addition to your own Terms and Conditions that must be made available to our customers when they book your events via the Fitu App or Site.

We reserve the right to amend these Terms of Service from time to time at our sole discretion and will notify you of any updates by e-mail. Your continued use of our platform will constitute acceptance of such changes.

If you choose to upload such documentation, we shall display it alongside any events you create for our App users to check. You must also provide a description of the type or types of events you wish to create and list on our platform in as much detail as possible.

If we agree, at our sole discretion, that you meet the criteria to participate in creating events on our platform, we shall grant you access to the platform and you may begin creating events. We reserve the right to refuse any applications that we deem to be unsuitable for our platform or where evidence of appropriate insurance cover or other information requested is not supplied by you.

We may also ask you to supply us with further information about you and your business and you agree that you shall supply that information to us promptly, accurately and truthfully.

4. OUR SERVICE TO YOU

These terms set out the terms on which we provide you access to Fitu to enable you to list health and fitness-related events and services (events) offered to our customers, including but not limited to gym classes, pools, saunas, massages and more generally, any wellness services. You are bound by these terms which govern how you use Fitu and how you interact and transact with other platform users and event organisers.

Upon registration for an account with Fitu, you will be asked to confirm that you have read, understood and accepted these terms. You will not be able to list or collect payment for any events unless confirmation is given that you accept our terms and provide us with your own terms and conditions or adopt our sample terms and conditions as your own. Any terms that you seek to impose in respect of any payments you receive through our service or site will not form part of any contract between us. Please read these terms of service carefully before using our services. If you have any queries on these terms please contact us at hello@fituapp.com before using our services.

By using our services through our Site and App, you warrant that you are doing so in your capacity as a sole trader or limited company or other business entity and that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts. Both parties act independently and for their own business purposes.

5. HOW FITU WORKS

There are two categories of users on our Site: platform users (our customers) and event organisers (you). Event organisers list their events on our platform, and our customers may book, pay for and attend those events.

Our aim is to enable our customers to book fitness classes on demand that are carried out by our event organisers in a way that is quick, easy, comparable and transparent. Event organisers who list their events on our Site will adhere to our terms but in addition will have their own terms and conditions which customers shall be asked to accept before placing any orders.

Upon registration, you must provide us with your Terms and Conditions so we can include them onto our platform. In the event that we, at our sole discretion, provide you with sample terms and conditions for you to adopt as your own, you understand and agree that those terms shall thereafter be deemed to be your own terms and conditions, at your own risk, and that we shall bear no liability or responsibility towards you or any other platform user or third party, on the basis of those terms and conditions.

6. OUR ROLE

Fitu provides a platform for the primary purpose of enabling our customers to interact and transact through the App, the Site and its services.

We act as platform users’ agent only in that we collect and relay their payment to you.

Once an event is booked by a customer, a legally binding contract is formed between you and them. Fitu is not party to the transaction and shall not bear any express or implied liabilities related to the events you list on our site. We shall not possess, check or act as caretakers of any events that are listed by you at any time.

7. OUR RELATIONSHIP AND YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

Nothing in these terms shall render you an employee, worker, agent or partner of Fitu and you shall not hold yourself out as such.

You are solely responsible for accounting for all taxes due relating to the provision of your services on our Site or App.

You are responsible for collecting VAT on the total sale price, we solely are responsible for paying VAT on our fee.

You shall be fully responsible for and indemnify us against any liability, assessment or claim for:

  1. taxation whatsoever arising from or made in connection with the performance of the Services, where such recovery is not prohibited by law; and
  2. any employment-related claim or any claim based on worker status (including reasonable costs and expenses) brought by you or any substitute against us arising out of or in connection with the provision of your services through the events you create on our site, except where such claim is as a result of any act or omission of Fitu.

We may satisfy such indemnity (in whole or in part) by way of deduction from any payment due to you.

You must comply with the Bribery Act 2010. Failure to do so may result in the immediate termination of this agreement.

You must not engage in any activity, practice or conduct which would constitute either a UK tax evasion facilitation offence or a foreign tax evasion facilitation offence under the Criminal Finances Act 2017. Failure to adhere to this paragraph, shall result in the immediate termination of this agreement.

You shall have personal liability for and shall indemnify us for any loss, liability, costs (including reasonable legal costs), damages or expenses arising from any breach by you of these terms, including any negligent or reckless act, omission or default in the provision of your services and shall maintain in force during the period of this agreement adequate insurance cover with reputable insurers.

You are fully responsible for uploading and updating any information about your offers, particularly if specific terms and conditions apply to such offers, including but not limited to rates, availability and other information which is displayed on the App. You undertake to be diligent in maintaining the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the offers' description.

You warrant that any content that you submit through the Site and/or App will not violate third parties' rights, including, but not limited to, trademark rights, copyright rights, and rights of publicity and privacy, nor violate any applicable law. You shall hold Fitu harmless against any third party claims brought against Fitu for copyright infringement whether in connection with the images that you upload and display on Fitu's App or Site or any other intellectual property rights.

Any content uploaded by event organisers must be approved by Fitu. We may require modifications to the uploaded material should, in or reasonable opinion, such material have a negative impact on Fitu's business.

8. BOOKINGS

The contract for the class or event booking will only be formed when customers have agreed to our terms of service, your terms and conditions and, where applicable, have made payment in full for the event they are booking. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion to reject any booking request we receive. You may advertise free events on our platform, in which case we shall not collect any commission from you. Requesting that payment is made in person by our platform user or that payment is made outside the platform for an event that you list on our platform shall be a material breach of these terms and we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Site and use of our services indefinitely and exercise all our rights conferred to us by law.

Once a customer makes a booking on the App or Site for an event by following the on-screen prompts, we shall send them a confirmation e-mail with the details of their booking.

Customers must book, pay or cancel any classes or events only through the Fitu App. It shall be a breach of these terms if you accept a booking, payment or cancellation directly from aCustomer, including through any online or mobile account or through social media. If you accept a booking, payment or cancellation directly from a Customer, we reserve the right to charge you any applicable cancellation fees, and/or to suspend your use of our service permanently.

9. DEALS AND PROMOTIONS

When registering as an Event organiser with Fitu, you undertake to honour:

  • any deals or promotion advertised on your own website at no less favourable terms;
  • the same first-timer discounts (introduction offers) that you may advertise in your website or marketing materials;
  • proportional discount where offers contain multiple classes in one introduction offer;
  • Fitu exclusive price, which should be at least 10% or 5% lower than the regular rate advertised in your websites based on the following sliding scale:
    • 10% if price is equal or below £15
    • 5% if drop in is above £15
    • 3% if drop in is above £25
  • any offers or pack of classes advertised on your website, whether the same pricing options or in proportion to the pack quantities available to Fitu;
  • promo codes offered to Fitu customers with which they get discounts on their workouts.
  • offers generated by Fitu's dynamic pricing tool - real-time data tracking will evaluate the availability of your classes and offer the best possible price to help fill spaces and maximise revenue. Class prices will automatically increase as the class fills so people don't wait for last-minute deals. Dynamic pricing parameters can be adjusted in the settings of your dashboard. A reconciliation report is automatically sent to the registered email on the last day of each month in order to ensure accounting methods are accurate.

Fitu's fees may vary depending on whether partners opt for an integration with our technical partners' booking platform, in which case the fee would be of 20% + £1 per booking for Stripe processing and integration fees (additional monthly integration fee may be charged for certain integration systems). In case partners do not which to be integrated, the fee would be of 20% commission + Stripe processing fees.

Classpack payments will be made when the customer redeems a workout session. Unused workout sessions by the expiry of the pack, will not be paid.

10. CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

If a customer books and thereafter cancels a class and they request a refund, you shall agree to the provision of a refund where such notification has been made with 12 hours’ notice. You shall not vary this term in your own terms and conditions, unless agreed by us in writing. You do not need to agree to offering refunds where customers do not attend a class or cancel a class less than 12 hours before the event takes place. If a customer tries to request a refund within 12 hours of the class starting, this will be classified as non-refundable and you will receive the relevant revenue. All refunds shall be processed by us directly in communication with you.

Where you cancel an event you must notify us at least 12 hours prior the event, otherwise we may charge you for any costs and damages we incur or administrative costs in processing the refunds to the platform users.

For the avoidance of doubt, adverse weather conditions shall not warrant the cancellation of a class or event, even when the event is planned to take place outdoors. However, if you believe that weather conditions may cause health and safety concerns, please contact us as hello@fituapp.com.

We reserve the right to offset any refunds paid to customers from any monies owed to Partners.
