If you experience a medical emergency, stop using the Keiser Service and consult with a medical professional. We are not responsible for any health problems that may result from training programs, consultations, products, or events you learn about through the Keiser Service. If you engage in any exercise program you receive or learn about through the Keiser Service, you agree that you do so at your own risk and are voluntarily participating in these activities.

The use of any Keiser exercise equipment, including, without limitation, Keiser's strength training equipment in which resistance can be changed at anytime during the repetition, and any fixed gear bike, including, without limitation, the complete line of Keiser cardio equipment, without proper instruction and supervision violates the terms of this agreement for purchase of such products. The ability to add resistance anytime during a repetition, including, without limitation, the ability to do a heavy negative may be dangerous, especially for anyone that does not recognize or respect the potential danger. The inability to stop pedaling on a fixed gear bike before the flywheel stops may also be dangerous to anyone riding, especially anyone that does not recognize or respect the potential danger. Therefore, users, agents, or anyone directing the use of said equipment shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use, and said parties are specifically put on notice that they shall assume all risk and liability in connection herewith. This does not include liabilities arising out of, connected with, and/or relating to the design, manufacture, materials, or workmanship of any Keiser Product.

If a product offered by Keiser itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
"List Price" means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by Keiser. With respect to items sold by Keiser, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order.

THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN KEISER AND YOU.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU .
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Keiser or its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, agents, licensors, and contractors from and against any claims, suits, actions, demands, disputes, allegations, or investigations brought by any third party, governmental authority, or industry body, and all liabilities, damages, losses, costs, and expenses, including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (1) your access to or use of the Keiser Services, (2) Your Content, (3) your breach or alleged breach of any warranties made by you hereunder or your violation of any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, or (4) your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party. We reserve the right to assume control of the defense of any third-party claim that is subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.
28. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH US AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
You agree that any dispute between you and Keiser arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions of Service, the Keiser Service, or any other Keiser products or services (collectively, "Disputes") will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
Governing Law: Except as otherwise required by applicable law, the Terms and Conditions of Service and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
Informal Dispute Resolution: We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Keiser, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. We will try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days after submission, you or Keiser may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate: You and Keiser agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms and Conditions of Use as a court would.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and Conditions of Service and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline this arbitration agreement.
Arbitration Procedures: The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Fresno, California, or any other location we mutually agree to.
Arbitration Fees: The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Keiser will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $10,000. Keiser will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or Keiser may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Fresno, California or any United States county where you live or work. Both you and Keiser may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Keiser products or Keiser Service, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
No Class Actions: You may only resolve Disputes with Keiser on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed under our agreement.
Judicial Forum for Disputes: Except as otherwise required by applicable law, in the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Keiser agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Fresno County, California. Both you and Keiser consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Limitation on Claims: Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Keiser products or Keiser Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
29. APPLICABLE LAW
By using any Keiser Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the State of California in Fresno County, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Keiser.
30. CHANGES TO THE KEISER SERVICE
Keiser may change or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any feature, component, or content of the Keiser Service at any time without notice. Keiser is not liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of any feature, component, or content of the Keiser Service. We reserve the right to determine the timing and content of software updates, which may be automatically downloaded and installed by Keiser products without prior notice to you.
31. SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY

If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
We reserve the right to suspend or deactivate your account or your access to certain aspects or all of the Keiser Service, or to terminate these Terms and Conditions, at our sole discretion, at any time and without notice or liability to you. Upon any such suspension, deactivation, or termination, we may delete or remove Your Content and other information related to your account.
