This Terms of Services Agreement (this “Agreement”) contains the terms under which Kaizen Wellness International, LLC provides our Services to you and describes how the Services may be accessed and used.
If you will be using the Services on behalf of an entity or other organization, you agree to these Terms on behalf of that entity or organization and you represent that you have such authority. “You” and “your” will refer to that entity or organization.
When you subscribe to our Services, or otherwise use or access the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and applicable laws, rules, and regulations. You may be asked to click “I accept” at the appropriate place prior to your purchase of or access to our Services. At such time, if you do not click “I accept”, you may not be able to complete your purchase or access our Services. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use our Services in any way.
Kaizen Wellness International, LLC is not an accredited educational institution or marketplace or SAAS company. Our users, customers, teachers, coaches and partners are not our employees. We are not responsible for any interactions between you and our customers, students, subscribers, teachers, coaches or users (collectively, “End-Users”), other than providing the Services for you to interact with our company. We are in no way liable for any disputes, claims, losses, injuries, or damage of any kind that may arise out of your relationship with End-Users, including any End-Users reliance upon any information or content that you provide or post on our platform.
1. Fees and Payments
1.1. Fees for our Services. You agree to pay Kaizen Wellness International, LLC any fees for each Services you purchase or use in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that Services. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through your account management page. If you have elected to pay the fees by credit card, you represent and warrant that the credit card information you provide is correct and you will promptly notify Kaizen Wellness International, LLC of any changes to such information. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms, described upon checkout or when required by law. Included in your fee may be technical support in respect of the Services and it is only provided to Kaizen Wellness International, LLC customers. Kaizen Wellness International, LLC’s support agents are not trained in psychological, therapeutic or technical support and Kaizen Wellness International, LLC accepts no responsibility to provide such support.
1.2. Subscriptions. Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
Payment will be charged to your chosen payment method at confirmation of purchase and at the start of every new billing cycle.
Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel your account through contacting us at email@example.com to cancel, or if available via your online account management page or in the app where applicable, prior to the end of the billing cycle. While we will never want to lose a customer, you may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to do so on some of our Platforms, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription immediately after the Subscription starts if you do not want it to renew.
If you initially sign up for a plan that includes a free or discounted trial period, and you do not cancel that account before the stated trial period expires, you will be automatically billed for the full price of the plan starting on the day the trial period ends. If you cancel prior to the processing of your first invoice following the trial period, you will not be charged.
We, through our third-party providers (Stripe, PayPal and via some app platforms like Apple App Store or Google Android platforms) will keep your detailed payment information, such as non-sensitive credit card partial numbers and expiration date, on file. We do not access this information, except through provided programmatic methods by the provider(s). You are responsible for keeping your payment details up-to-date by changing the details in your account settings via our website. When your details change or are due to expire, we may obtain or receive from your payment provider updated payment details, including your card number, expiration date, and CVV (or equivalent). This enables us to provide you access to our Services.
You authorize us to continue to charge your credit card using the updated information. If a payment is not successfully authorized due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, we may suspend or terminate your Services or subscription until applicable changes have occurred. You also agree that we may charge you via your payment method on file if you elect to restart your subscription.
Any change (including any upgrade, downgrade or other modification) to any plan by you in a trial period will end the trial immediately. You will be billed for your first term period (i.e. the first annual or monthly period) immediately upon upgrading. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level after any trial period, your credit, debit, or other payment card will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. You will be billed immediately for the prorated difference for the current billing cycle for any upgrade to any higher priced plan during that billing cycle. If a plan downgrade causes a credit to your account, this credit will be used toward your next billing cycle(s). This credit will not be refunded.
1.3. Taxes. Our prices listed do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature such as value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”) unless otherwise indicated. You are responsible for paying Taxes associated with your purchase and keeping your billing information up to date.
(a) United States Sales Tax. If we have a legal obligation to pay or collect sales tax for which you are responsible, we will calculate the sales tax based upon the billing information we have about you and charge you that amount (which, if your billing information is incomplete or inaccurate, may be the highest prevailing rate then in effect), unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate acceptable to the appropriate taxing authority.
If you provide us with a tax exemption certificate, you represent and warrant that it accurately reflects your tax status and that you will keep such documents current and accurate.
If we subsequently determine in our sole discretion that your tax exemption document is valid, we will refund the sales tax collected.
(b) Non-United States Sales Tax. If applicable, we will charge you VAT, GST, or any other sales, consumption or use taxes that arise in connection with your purchases of our Services unless you provide us with a tax identification number that entitles you to an exemption, a valid tax exemption certificate or other documentary proof issued by an appropriate taxing authority that tax should not be charged. If you are located in a jurisdiction with multiple sales, consumption, or use taxes, we may charge you the highest prevailing rate if your billing information is incomplete or inaccurate.
If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Kaizen Wellness International, LLC, you must provide Kaizen Wellness International, LLC with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments.
1.4. Price Changes. Kaizen Wellness International, LLC may change the fees charged to you for the Services at any time, provided that, for Services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. Kaizen Wellness International, LLC will provide you with advance notice of any change in fees and you will have the opportunity to cancel your Subscription as set forth in Section 1.2.

The United States has not received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 41 of the GDPR. We collect and transfer to the U.S. personal data only with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of ours in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.
When we transfer your personal information to other countries, we will protect that data as described in this Policy or in our agreement with you and take steps, where necessary, to ensure that international transfers comply with applicable laws.
Residents of the European Economic Area
We provide the representations and information in this section in compliance with European privacy laws, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you are a visitor from the European Territories (including the European Economic Area, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom), our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
We will normally collect personal data from you where the processing is in our legitimate interests. In some cases we may collect, and process personal data based on consent.
EU data subjects have certain rights with respect to your personal data that we collect and process. We respond to all requests we receive from individuals in the EEA wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
Access, Correction or Deletion
You may request access to, correction of, or deletion of your personal data. You can often go directly into the Service under Account Settings to take these actions.
You may object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes and may do so using the options provided in this Policy. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
You have the right to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
You have the right to request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
If we have collected and processed your personal data with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
