Terms and Conditions
This Agreement sets out the terms and conditions relating to the online content provided free of charge and content subject to payment ("Free and Paid-for Content") that Martial Art School Alliance International LLC ("the Siteowner") will provide to you ("the User"). By accessing Starting-A-Martial-Art-School.com ("the Site") the User is agreeing to the terms and conditions below. If the User uses the Site in the course of business the User is also agreeing to these terms and conditions on behalf of that business. If the User does not agree with the terms and conditions (or the User is not authorized to do so) the User should not use the Site. If the User has any questions they should contact the Siteowner at our contact page.
Services and Fees
The Siteowner shall provide Free and Paid-for Content. This includes any and all subscriptions for Paid-for Content available. The Siteowner reserves the right to vary the Free and Paid-for Content and does not guarantee that the content provided free of charge ("Free Content") will remain free of charge and does not guarantee that the content provided subject to payment ("Paid-for Content") will remain a paid-for service.
The User shall agree to pay any subscription fees ("Fees") at rates in effect when the charges are incurred. The User must provide the Siteowner with complete and accurate payment information. The User can pay using a credit or debit card or by any other means Siteowner may provide. By submitting credit or debit card details to the Siteowner the User warrants that they are entitled to purchase the Paid-for Content using those payment details. In the event of an unauthorized payment the Siteowner reserves the right to suspend or terminate the User's access to the Site and Paid-for Content. If no payment authorization is received or payment authorization is subsequently cancelled, the Siteowner may immediately terminate or suspend access to any Paid-for Content and/or the Site.
The Siteowner will try to process the User's request for any Paid-for Content promptly but does not guarantee that the Paid-for Content will be available to the User by any specified time. A contract with the User for Paid-for Content will come into effect when the Username and Password are issued to the User.
The User having paid the Fee for a subscription for the supply of Paid-for Content for a defined period the User will have no right of cancellation for the supply of the Paid-for Content other than the right to cancel the subscription for Paid-for Content. This does not affect the User's statutory rights.
Registration, Passwords and Privacy
The User does not have to register to use the Site in order to access it and enjoy the content other than the Paid-for Content.

The Siteowner is entitled to rely on this information to provide Paid-for Content.
The User will also be requested to create a Password in a format specified by the Siteowner ("the Password"). The User shall not disclose the Password to any other person or entity and shall ensure that the Password remains confidential at all times. In the event that the User knows or has a reasonable suspicion that a third party knows the User's Password, the User shall notify the Siteowner immediately by contacting the Siteowner by using the contact form at http://www.starting-a-martial-arts-school.com/contact.html. If the Siteowner has reasonable grounds for believing that the User has misused or is misusing the Password, the Siteowner may require the User to change the Password or may suspend the User's use of the access to the Site, including Paid-for Content, until such time as the Siteowner is satisfied that the security of the Site is no longer compromised by the User's activities.
