Terms of Use

Please read these terms carefully. This is a binding agreement between Joyful Liberation Collective, a 501c3 non-for-profit organization (referred to as “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) and any person who accesses or establishes a connection to the Services (“you” or “User”). By using or otherwise accessing the Services, or indicating your assent hereto by clicking “I agree” or similarly expressing acceptance where other options exist, you will be deemed to have accepted the terms of this agreement. The Company retains any rights not specifically granted to you in this agreement.

Except for free trials or other complimentary offers we may periodically make to allow you to evaluate the Services as a “Trial Member,” the Services requires payment per class or a membership fee and any applicable taxes (the “Charges”). The Charges are stated at the time of purchase, and are due and payable in full at the time you enroll in a class or a membership is commenced.
You acknowledge that you will pay the Company the Charges where enrollment has been made using your credit card, whether by you personally or by someone else in your household or organization on your behalf. By paying for membership with a credit card, you certify to the Company that you are at least 18 years of age and that you are the cardholder of the credit card, or that you are certifiably at least 13 years of age and expressly authorized by the cardholder to enroll in the Services.
You further acknowledge that your obligation to pay the Charges does not depend on use of the Services, and that you remain obligated to pay the Company for the Services regardless of whether or not the Services are used. Unless you enroll as part of a free trial or other complimentary offer, your obligation to pay the Charges begins on the date of your membership registration, not the date of your first use of the Services. Free trial or complimentary offers to use the Services also begin on the date of registration and not on the date of first use of the Services. This agreement, other than payment obligations, applies to Trial Members during any trial or complimentary period offered by the Company.

Your membership will renew automatically at the end of the current term. Membership renewal will be charged at the membership price then in effect (not including any special offers that may be valid for new members or other specific groups), which may be higher than the price in effect during the previous term. You must cancel membership at least seven days prior to its renewal date to avoid incurring further charges. Your credit card will be automatically charged unless you have notified the Company in accordance with Section 5 that you wish to cancel the membership.


You may cancel your membership during any free trial or complimentary offer without charge. You may also cancel your membership. However, the Company does not prorate any Charges upon termination or cancellation and does not refund any such amounts for any term already charged. You may cancel your account for the Services by completing and submitting a cancellation form at https://www.joyful-liberation.org/cancel-membership or calling Customer Service at (917) 426-3724. Telephone calls are accepted only during business hours and may result in delays of cancellation. To avoid automatic renewal of your membership and further charges, you must submit the cancellation form or call Customer Service at least seven days prior to your account’s renewal date. You may also send a certified letter, return receipt requested, to the Company, Attention: Cancellation, 636 W 174th Street, Apt. 2A, New York, New York, 10033, and your cancellation will be effective upon receipt. Communications other than the foregoing, including notifying your credit card company or bank that you no longer wish to be a member, will not serve as valid means of cancellation.

All provisions of these terms of use which by their nature should survive cancellation of your account shall survive, including, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
