Last Updated: October 27, 2023
This End User License Agreement ("Agreement") is a binding contract between you ("Licensee" or "you") and BTWB, LLC, a California limited liability company ("BTWB," "we" or "us"). This Agreement governs (1) your use, whether you are an individual or an organization, of BTWB's website(s) located at https://beyondthewhiteboard.com and https://btwb.com (collectively the "Website") and/or BTWB's mobile software applications on the Android and iOS platforms, made available to the public under the names Beyond the Whiteboard and btwb (the "Mobile Apps") including all related documentation that BTWB makes available within the Service (the "Documentation," and together with the Website and the Mobile Apps, the "Service"), as well as (2) your participation in any Challenges (defined below).
BY VISITING, READING, REGISTERING FOR, INSTALLING OR USING THE SERVICE OR PARTICIPATING IN A CHALLENGE, YOU (A) ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT AND ARE LEGALLY BOUND BY ITS TERMS; (B) REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE (OR ANY OLDER AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION THAT MAY BE REQUIRED FOR YOU TO FORM A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT) OR THAT YOU ARE A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN OF A USER UNDER THAT AGE OF MAJORITY, CONSENTING TO THIS AGREEMENT ON THAT USER'S BEHALF AND TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS OR HER USAGE OF THE SERVICE. NO PERSON UNDER THE AGE OF THIRTEEN MAY USE THE SERVICE IN ANY CASE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SERVICE, AND DELETE EACH MOBILE APP FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICE.
The Service is available for use:
- By individuals on their own behalf in fitness activity tracking and education ("Individuals"); and
- By gyms, fitness studios and other establishments that use the Service to present information to and coordinate activities with Individuals ("Gyms"). The Service may offer you the opportunity to identify yourself as a representative of one or more Gyms (for example, as an owner of that Gym). Each Gym that you identify as one that you represent in response to such prompts in the Service is identified in this Agreement as your "Linked Gym."
If you identify yourself to us as a representative of a Linked Gym, then by agreeing to this Agreement you are agreeing to it on your own behalf as an Individual as well as on behalf of any Linked Gym and the licenses expressly stated in this Agreement extend to each Linked Gym. If you do not inform us that you are a representative of any Gyms, then you are agreeing to this Agreement on your own behalf alone.
BTWB from time to time collaborates with Gyms to present live competitions between individuals, which may be conducted either in-person or via remote technology ("Challenges"). You are welcome to participate in any Challenge provided that you meet any eligibility criteria that BTWB or a Gym may establish for that Challenge, and if you do participate, you hereby agree that you do so pursuant to this Agreement and any separate terms, conditions or rules for that Challenge.
PARTNERS, SERVICE PROVIDERS & AFFILIATES
We have agreements with other organizations ("Partner(s)") under which some or all of our users may use the Service to attempt to qualify for fitness competitions that Partners operate ("Partner Events"). You are generally not required to do use the Service in connection with any Partner Events. If you use the Service to qualify for a Partner Event, you agree to use the Service consistent with this Agreement, with the relevant Partner’s policies and agreements, and with all written directions that we or the relevant Partner provide you regarding the Partner Event.
From time to time, third-party companies or individuals whose services or content btwb makes available to Individuals and/or Gyms through the Service. These third parties, called "Service Providers" in this Agreement, include without limitation,
- 215 Enterprises, Inc., a Washington corporation d/b/a CrossFit Linchpin, d/b/a Linchpin Athletics;
- Mayhem Nation LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company d/b/a CrossFit Mayhem;
- Tuxedo Social LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company with its principal office;
- and the owners, officers, directors, members and agents of the above.
Service Providers also include coaches and others whose program content appears in the Services. "Service Providers" in this Agreement does not refer to Gyms acting in their capacities as Gyms. To the extent a Gym also acts as a Service Provider, as described above, the provisions of this Agreement applicable to Service Providers apply to that Gym.
In this Agreement, "Affiliate" refers to any company that is controlled by or under common ownership with BTWB.
Some Service features allow you and other users to post, submit, publish, display, link or transmit to other users or other persons ("post") content, images or other materials (collectively, "User Content") on or through the Service. All User Content that you post to the Service on your own behalf as an Individual is referred to in this Agreement as "Your Content." All User Content that you (or any other person at your request or with your authorization) post in the Service on behalf of a Linked Gym is referred to in this Agreement as "Gym Content."
The Service publishes content and other materials that includes User Content as well as WODs (workouts), information and other content from BTWB and from third parties (all of the foregoing collectively, "Content").

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
The Service and Content and each challenge are provided to you "as is" without warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, BTWB, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates and its and their respective licensors and Service Providers, disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory, or otherwise, with respect to the Service and Content, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement, and warranties that may arise out of course of dealing, course of performance, usage, or trade practice. Without limiting the foregoing,
- BTWB provides no warranty, and makes no representation of any kind that the Service will meet your requirements, achieve any intended results, be compatible, or work with any other software, systems or services, operate without interruption, meet any performance or reliability standards, or be error-free, or that any errors or defects can or will be corrected, and

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of or limitations on implied warranties or the limitations on the applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so some or all of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to you.
LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
BTWB, its Affiliates and its Service Providers, and the shareholders, members, directors, managers, agents, representatives, employees, consultants, affiliated companies, partners, and successors of each of them (together, the “BTWB Parties”) shall not be liable to you or to any other person for personal injury or for any incidental, special, indirect or consequential damages whatsoever, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, corruption or loss of data, business interruption or any other commercial damages or losses, arising out of or related to your use of or your inability to use the Service or Content or any Partner Events, regardless of the theory of liability (tort, contract or otherwise) and even if the BTWB Party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for personal injury, or of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation may not apply to you.
In no event shall a BTWB Party’s total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the amount of two thousand dollars (U.S. $2,00.00).
The foregoing limitations will apply to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, and even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose. You agree that the provisions of this Limitations and Exclusions of Liability section are a material inducement for BTWB and its Affiliates and Service Providers to permit you to use the Service and its Content and participate in Partner Events.
ALL PHYSICAL FITNESS ACTIVITIES CARRY INHERENT RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY OR EVEN DEATH. DO NOT USE THE SERVICE OR TAKE ACTIONS BASED ON THE CONTENT WITHOUT CONSULTING A PHYSICIAN. BTWB DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL OR NUTRITIONAL ADVICE OR TREATMENT.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless BTWB and its Affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns, from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising from or relating to your use or misuse of the Service, your breach of this Agreement or your participation in a Partner Event. If you represent a Gym, then this Indemnification section applies equally to that Gym.
The Service may be subject to U.S. export control laws, including the U.S. Export Administration Act and its associated regulations. You shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Service to, or make the Service accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation. You shall comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Service available outside the U.S.
If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable under applicable law, the remainder of the provision will be amended to achieve as closely as possible the effect of the original term and all other provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
This Agreement is governed by California law without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Service must be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of California in each case located in San Bernardino County or the nearest county thereto. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
This Agreement is the entire agreement between you and BTWB with respect to the Service and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to the Service.
You acknowledge that the Affiliates and Service Providers, defined above, are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement and that upon your acceptance of this Agreement they will have the rights (and will be deemed to have accepted the rights) to enforce those provisions of this Agreement that expressly apply to them.
No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of either party, any right or any power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or power hereunder preclude further exercise of that or any other right hereunder. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any applicable purchase or other terms, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.
Changes to this Agreement

Any such amendment will be effective after we send you written notice of the amended agreement, show you a banner popup notice in the Service or simply post an updated agreement on the Website.
