Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) carefully. These Terms of Use are an agreement between you and 24 Hour Fitness USA, Inc. (“24 Hour Fitness,” “we” or “us”) governing your use of (including any access to) the 24 Hour Fitness website, currently located at www.24HourFitness.com (together with any successor site(s) thereto, the “Site”), the 24 Hour Fitness application currently named “My24” (together with any successor application(s) thereto, the “App”) and the information, services, products, materials and programs offered through the Site and/or the App (collectively, together with the Site and the App, the “Online Services”) to you subject to these Terms of Use, which may be amended as described below.

These Terms of Use hereby incorporate by this reference any additional terms and conditions with respect to the Online Services that are made available by 24 Hour Fitness through the Online Services, or otherwise made available to you by 24 Hour Fitness.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the “Online Services” will be deemed to exclude 24 Hour Fitness gym memberships, classes and training services, and other services that are not provided through the Site and/or the App (collectively, “Other Services”), the purchase and/or use of which may be subject to separate terms, conditions and/or policies provided by 24 Hour Fitness, whether or not provided through the Site or the App (collectively, “Other Terms”). For example, gym memberships are subject to, among other things, the terms and conditions of our Membership Policies and Club Membership Agreement. For clarity, in the event of any dispute arising out of or related to any Other Service, the terms and conditions of the applicable Other Terms will govern with respect to such dispute.

THESE TERMS OF USE CONTAIN A MANDATORY ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS, CLASS ACTIONS OR OTHER COURT PROCEEDINGS.

Any such changes will not apply to any dispute between you and us arising prior to the date on which we make available the updated Terms of Use incorporating such changes, or otherwise notify you of such changes. Your continued use of the Online Services following any changes to these Terms of Use indicates your agreement to the updated Terms of Use.

Copyright Infringement Claims

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.

If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly submitted to us a notice of copyright infringement involving content that you made available through the Online Services, the DMCA permits you to send to 24 Hour Fitness a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see www.copyright.gov for details), which, with respect to notices of alleged infringement, currently include, among other requirements, the following:
