**MARCH 16th, 2020 UPDATE**
Given the current situation and the public health initiatives to reduce our exposure to public spaces and large groups, we are very aware of the implications on our Essentrics Instructors and clients alike. With this in mind, we have decided to remove the restriction for Instructors to offer live (not pre-recorded) classes to their existing clientele online through one of the digital communication platforms listed below, until July 31st, 2020. This will enable instructors to teach only the classes they were already teaching, and only to their current and existing active clientele, by offering their classes online live to a private audience.
With the temporary guideline changes, please keep the following in mind:
This excludes any live or pre-recorded broadcast of your classes to a public Facebook or Instagram audience, to the broader public, or to any of your followers who are not current clients of yours. The pre-existing restriction remains in place for any public broadcast of your live Essentrics classes via:
We understand that each Level has required Apprentice teaching hours as part of the certification requirements. For this interim time, until July 31st 2020, any full one-hour Pre-Choreographed Workout classes you teach online can count towards those hours. You will need one volunteer from each online class to agree to provide their name as your participant.
If you have been presented with an opportunity to offer live (not pre-recorded) online classes through a partnership with or at a gym, please contact Head Office to discuss. Please also do not hesitate to reach out to discuss any of the items mentioned for these provisional terms, we want to support you as best as we can.
The aforementioned restrictions exist to maintain the quality and integrity of the Essentrics technique and brand. All Essentrics® Pre-choreographed Workouts are protected by Copyright, and only The Esmonde Technique has the right to distribute the workouts digitally. The Esmonde Technique also retains the right to host digital non-live recordings (pre-recorded) of Essentrics® workouts online.

VIMEO OTT Terms of Service
Last updated: Jan 8th, 2019
This Terms of Service Agreement (“Agreement”) is between you and VHX Corporation (for the purposes hereof, “Vimeo,” “we” or “us”), a subsidiary of Vimeo, Inc. The Agreement governs your use of our service (the “Vimeo OTT Service”), which allows consumers like you to purchase video programs (“Programs”) and subscriptions to video channels from content producers (“Producers”) through Producer websites and applications that we power.
When you use the Vimeo OTT Service by, for example, making a purchase, creating an account with us or a Producer, or using a Producer website or application, you agree to this Agreement. Please note that by accepting this Agreement, you agree to resolve claims between you and Vimeo and applicable Producers through binding arbitration.
To make a purchase, you must create an account with Vimeo and the Producer. Each time that you make a purchase with a new Producer, you must create an account with that Producer.
To create an account, you must provide a valid email address. You represent and warrant that all information you provide is accurate. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your account and for all activity that occurs under your account. You must notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized access to or use of your account.
You may not create an account if you are younger than 16 years of age. By creating an account, you represent that you are at least 16 years of age. Individuals younger than 16 may only view Programs via their parent or legal guardian’s account, and with that adult’s consent, permission, supervision and involvement.
By creating an account with a Producer, you agree that the Producer will have access to your account information and account activities, such as the viewing and purchase of the Producer’s Programs. Producers are subject to our Acceptable Consumer Privacy Practices Policy. Vimeo is not responsible for a Producer’s use or disclosure of your data.
PROGRAM VIEWING AND TRANSACTION OPTIONS
Producers may offer the following purchase options through Producer-branded websites and applications:
Subscription: For a recurring fee, you may stream the Programs offered within a Producer’s subscription channel an unlimited number of times during your subscription period. The Producer may add or remove Programs from the channel at any time.You are responsible for obtaining Internet access and a compatible, Internet-connected device to stream and/or download Programs via Producer websites and applications. The quality of your viewing experience depends on a number of factors, including your viewing device and the quality of your Internet connection.
To make a purchase, you must provide a valid payment method. Subscriptions automatically renew for the subscription period until you cancel. Your payment method will be charged at the beginning of each subscription period. If a Purchaser offers a free-trial period, your payment method will be charged at the end of the free-trial period unless you cancel before the end of that period. To pause or cancel a subscription, visit your account settings. Your changes will be applied to your next subscription period.
We may apply taxes, including VAT (value-added tax), to any charges. Prices and other terms of purchase are subject to change. If a Producer provides you access to a Program on a free basis, such access will be deemed a “purchase” for the purpose of this Agreement.
ALL PURCHASES, INCLUDING RECURRING CHARGES, ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE.
LICENSES AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
License to Programs: Subject to the terms hereof, you have the right to stream and/or (if offered) download for your personal entertainment purposes: (i) Programs that you have rented during the stated rental period; (ii) Programs that you have purchased; and (iii) Programs made available within a channel that you have subscribed to during your subscription period.
