These Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) are a contract between you and Full Wheel LLC DBA Wheel House and govern your access to and use of any Wheel House website, application (“app”), fitness facility, content, or products and/or services made available through Wheel House (collectively, the “Site”).

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY AS THEY BIND YOU TO A CONTRACT WITH FULL WHEEL, LLC dba Wheel House ("WHEEL HOUSE"). THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES YOU HAVE WITH WHEEL HOUSE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

Terminology Used

The following terminology applies to these Terms and Conditions, Privacy Statement, Disclaimer Notice and any or all Agreements: “Client”, “Member”, “Visitor”, “You”, and “Your” refers to you, the person accessing this website and accepting the Company’s terms and conditions. “The Company”, "WH", “Ourselves”, “Our” “We” and “Us” refers to our Company, Full Wheel LLC. d/b/a Wheel House.) “Party”, “Parties,” or “Us” refers to both the client and ourselves, either the client or ourselves as determined by the context of the sentence.

All terms refer to the offer, acceptance or consideration of payment necessary to undertake the process of our assistance to the client in the most appropriate manner, for the express purpose of meeting the client’s needs in respect to the Company’s stated services and products, in accordance with and subject to prevailing California law. Any use of the above terminology or other words in the singular, plural, capitalization and/or he/she or they, are taken as interchangeable and therefore as referring to the same.

Class Series and Packages

In order to make a reservation, you must first purchase a single class or series of classes (multiple classes), or hold an active Monthly Membership package. All classes, regardless of length, require one class credit for booking.

Pursuant to Section 1812.89 (b)(2), if a member moves more than 25 miles from Wheel House, the member may be charged a predetermined fee upon cancellation of the contract of up to $100, or if more than half the life of the contract has expired, up to $50.

There will be no refunds on any series of classes that have been used. Unused packages may be refunded within 30 days of purchase at the discretion of Wheel House management, and refunds may be made in the form of studio credit that can be used to purchase retail merchandise. There will be no refunds of packages after 30 days of purchase.

Monthly Class and Unlimited Packages

A WH Monthly class package credits your Wheel House account with a set number of classes each month on the billing date of the contract.

Any unused classes do not get carried over to the next month and therefore need to be used during the billing period or will be expired.

Monthly class packages are subject to special terms and conditions relating to the length of the contract. Those terms and conditions are available for review upon the purchase of such packages. No refund will be made for any monthly contract that is cancelled prior to the stated end date of the contract, and billing for the package will continue until the end date of the prescribed term of the contract. No refund will be made for classes that are unused during a billing period for a monthly class package.

An Unlimited Month package enables you to book any class for the active current billing month or period, can only be used by the account holder and may not be shared.

Wheel House may discontinue or remove the Website or any portions thereof at any time for any reason.

Accounts

In order to access some features of the website, you will have to create a Wheel House account. You may never use another person's account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.

 

Class Reservations and Waitlist Procedure

In order to make a reservation, you must first purchase a single class or series of classes. To do this, you can go to www.wheelhouse-sf.com or the app, and create a profile if you have not done so already.

You should be aware that class series expire and class and future series prices are subject to change. We accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Cash. Reservation and cancellation deadlines apply regardless of website, phone or facility functionality.

Your credit/debit card will be charged for your order at the time of purchase. Wheel House will not process any purchases that use an incorrect, expired, or over-the-limit credit card. We will make our best efforts to contact you if this occurs. If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due, services or privileges may be suspended or terminated. You shall be responsible and liable for any fees, including attorneys' fees and collection costs, that Wheel House may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you.

Please reserve a spot in your class at www.wheelhouse-sf.com or the app. Click on the View Schedule link, select the class you would like to book and a specific bike, mat, or station in the room. If a class is full, you can put yourself on the waitlist. If a spot opens up in that class, you'll be placed into the class and notified via email or phone. It is recommended that you sign up in advance for Wheel House classes. Students with active class credits, series or memberships can sign up in advance by calling or signing up online through this website. All reservations are held until 10 minutes before the class begins. If you don’t call and cancel a class reservation 12 hours before the start of class, you will be charged for the class.

Every Sunday at 5:00pm the booking window opens for the upcoming 2 weeks. We encourage you to sign up for your favorite classes as soon as possible as many classes fill quickly. When reserving a class, select any bike, mat, or station in the room that you wish to use. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO USE THE BIKE, MAT, OR STATION YOU SELECTED OR THAT IS ASSIGNED TO YOU. CHANGING TO A DIFFERENT BIKE, MAT, OR STATION IS NOT ALLOWED.

 

Reservations made outside of the Site

If you purchase and reserve a booking on a website other than the Site, application or mobile platform Wheel House cannot make any modifications to the booking for any reason. You must contact the provider through which you purchased the reservation for changes, cancellations or no show requests. The studio is not responsible for reservations made outside of the Wheel House site. (Examples of reservations made outside the Wheel House site include, but are not limited to, reservations made through Classpass or Gympass.)

Cancellations, No Shows and Lateness

CANCELLATIONS: YOU MUST CANCEL CLASS 8 HOURS IN ADVANCE OR WE MAY DEDUCT THAT CLASS FROM YOUR ACCOUNT. This includes switching time slots under the 8-hour notice time period. You may cancel class through our online system or app, call the studio directly or email us. Any class credits used to book a class canceled before the 8 hour cut off will be credited back to your account. If you use a monthly unlimited membership for your bookings and cancel within 8 hour of your scheduled class you will be charged a late fee of $15.

NO SHOWS: A “no-show” is someone who does not cancel a reservation and fails to attend class. Failure to cancel a class and becoming a “no-show” will result in a charge of $20.00 to the credit card associated with your account if you hold a Monthly Unlimited Membership package.

If you use a Class Series or Monthly Class Membership to reserve your spot and become a “no-show,” you will lose any class credits used to make the reservation and these will not be refunded to you..

LATENESS: YOU MUST BE PHYSICALLY PRESENT 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE START OF YOUR SCHEDULED CLASS OR YOUR SPOT MAY BE GIVEN TO A WAITLISTED CLIENT.

If you arrive after the start of class, our Front Desk staff will determine if there is space available for you in the class and whether you may be permitted to join a class already in progress. As a general rule, anyone arriving 10 minutes after a class has started will not be allowed to join the class, and may be subject to no show and cancelation penalties as outlined above.

As a courtesy to others, if you are allowed to join a class that has already started, you must take care when entering the studios to minimize the distraction and disturbance of others. Late arrivals may also be assigned to bike, mat, or station in the room that is different than the one they originally booked, but will be required to use the bike, mat or station designated by the front desk staff.

Security Statement

Wheel House makes every effort to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on the Website and App are secure. All credit card numbers and transactions are encrypted using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Website.

Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

 

What Is A Secure Connection?

When a secure connection is established between your browser and a website, any data that is transferred over the connection will be encrypted to prevent it from being viewed by a third party. SSL encryption makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept or decode messages exchanged over this type of secure connection.

Browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari display an image of a locked padlock on their status bar when connected to a secure site. Google Chrome shows a green locked padlock on the far left side of the status bar when there is a secure SSL connection. Firefox colors the address bar yellow when connected to a secure site. Secure transactions are also indicated when the prefix in the location bar of your browser switches from http:// or https://. The additional ‘s’ stands for ‘secure’ and indicates a secure connection to the Wheel House website. If you do not see this padlock, if it is unlocked, or if the protocol in the location bar is not listed as https://, then any data exchanged with the website is potentially visible to others.

Depending on your browser, you may be able to view authentication information about a secure page by double-clicking on the padlock icon in the status bar. For more information on how your software establishes a secure connection, see the help files for your particular browser.

 

Distribution Of Information

We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (i) permitted or required by law; (ii) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or (iii) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes.

Arbitration Agreement

This Arbitration Agreement facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Wheel House. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their disputes and potential disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit, in court, by a judge or jury trial.

Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It provides that all disputes between you and Wheel House shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).

For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement, “Wheel House” means Wheel House and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Wheel House regarding any aspect of your relationship with Wheel House, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.

WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.

 

Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution.

Before initiating any Dispute, whether in court or arbitration, you must first give Wheel House an opportunity to resolve the Dispute by mailing written notification to Wheel House, One Embarcadero Center, Lobby Level, San Francisco, CA 94111. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of the Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Wheel House does not resolve the Dispute to your satisfaction within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration.

 

Arbitration Procedures.

A) Arbitration Award.
The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by applicable federal law, including but not limited to the Federal Arbitration Act (“the FAA”), and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.

B) Location of Arbitration.
Arbitration shall take place in San Francisco County, CA, but it may proceed by telephone if you so choose.

C) Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs.
You are responsible for all fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law.

D) Class Action Waiver.
Any Disputes arising out of or relating to the purchases from the Site, these Terms (including the formation, performance, or alleged breach), and your use of the Site shall be submitted individually by you and will not be subject to any class action or representative status. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action)

Neither you, nor any other Member of Wheel House and/or user of Wheel House services, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, consolidated or private attorney general proceeding with respect to the matters set forth in the first sentence of this paragraph.

You agree that this Class Action Waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any dispute between you and Wheel House and is non severable from the Arbitration Agreement. If any portion of this Class Action Waiver is limited, voided, or cannot be enforced, then the Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. You understand that by agreeing to this Class Action Waiver, you may only pursue Dispute against Wheel House in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding.

E) Limitation of Procedural Rights.
You understand and agree that, by entering into this Arbitration Agreement, you and Wheel House are each agreeing to arbitration instead of the right to a trial before a judge or jury in a public court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, you and Wheel House might otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions).

By using the Wheel House Site and products and services, you are entering into this Arbitration Agreement, and you give up those procedural rights. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited in arbitration. The right to appellate review of an arbitrator’s decision is much more limited than in court, and in general an arbitrator’s decision may not be appealed for errors of fact or law.

F) Severability.
If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement, other than the Class Action Waiver clause above, is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction.

G) Continuation.
This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your contract with Wheel House and your use of the Wheel House Site and services.

Miscellaneous

a) Choice of Law; Forum. These Terms shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions.

b) Assignment. We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms. The Terms will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns and licensees.

c) Severability. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

d) Headings. The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.

e) Entire Agreement. These Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, as each may be amended as set forth herein, are the entire agreement between you and Wheel House relating to the subject matter herein.

f) Claims; Statute of Limitations.

YOU AND WHEEL HOUSE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE SITE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

g) Waiver. No waiver of any of these Terms by Wheel House is binding unless authorized in writing by an executive officer of Wheel House. In the event that Wheel House waives a breach of any provision of these Terms, such waiver will not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same nature or other provisions of these Terms and will in no manner affect the right of Wheel House to enforce the same at a later time.

Wheel House may at any time revise these Terms and Conditions by updating this posting. By using this Website, you agree to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to determine the then current Terms and Conditions to which you are bound.
