By accepting these terms, you understand and agree that, as stated in Section 7, you are waiving your right to resolve any dispute through other processes that could be available to you, such as court actions or administrative proceedings. It also means that you are waiving your rights to a trial by jury or to combine your dispute with others in a class action.

The online services are not intended to be used by, or targeted to, anyone under the age of 13 years old. You must be at least 13 years old to use the online services. If you are at least 13 years old but not yet 18 years old (or the legal age of majority if different in your jurisdiction), then you must review these terms with your parent or guardian and they must understand and agree to these terms in order for you to use the online services.

If you or your parent or guardian do not agree to these terms, then you must immediately stop using the online services and request that The Salt Suite® close any online services account that you have created. You can request account deletion by sending an email to info@TheSaltSuite.com, please include the email address of the account that you want deleted.

The information contained herein is provided for informational and educational purposes only. The use of The Salt Suite® is not intended to treat, cure nor prevent any illness or condition. All medical conditions should be treated by a physician competent in treating that particular condition. All products and services provided by The Salt Suite®, including written information, labels, brochures and flyers as well as information provided orally or in any other medium of communication, have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure nor prevent any disease. All information presented in this website is the opinion of the author based on clinical settings. They do not have grounding in research under more controlled conditions and must therefore be looked at as preliminary and experimental.  The Salt Suite® makes no medical claims regarding this information.

1. About the online services.

Obey the rules of the road.

Whenever you use the online services, you must obey the rules of the road and all applicable rules and regulations. You must not use the online services while driving or while behind the wheel or controls of a vehicle that is moving or not in “park”. In the interest of safety at all times, you should only use the online services when it is lawful and safe to do so.

You are responsible for your devices and accounts.

You are responsible for any devices, software and services needed to use the online services. The Salt Suite® does not guarantee that the online services will fully function on any particular device or with any particular software. You are also responsible for any messaging and data charges, fees and taxes for your use of the online services, including when we communicate with you by text, email or other means that you choose. You may only use the online services with devices that you own or control and using only the authorized operating system (e.g., Apple iPhone OS for Apple devices). If you create an online services account, you are responsible for keeping the account secure and for all activity under the account. You can only use one online services account and must keep your account information accurate at all times.

The Salt Suite®’s right to update or terminate the online services.

You understand and consent that (with or without notice) The Salt Suite®’s may update, modify or terminate the online services (or your access to them) from time to time, including by pushing updates to (or removing functionality or access from) any The Salt Suite®’s mobile app that you have installed on your device. Current scheduling, online purchases, and app services are through MINDBODY. MINDBODY is a separate The Salt Suite® and The Salt Suite® does not own any portion of MINBODY.

Updates to these terms.

The Salt Suite® may also update these terms at any time and at its sole discretion. If The Salt Suite® makes material changes to the terms, we will notify you by any reasonable means such as by posting the new terms in the online service. If you do not agree to the changed terms, then you must immediately stop using the online services and request that The Salt Suite® close any online services account that you have created. To close your account, you shall email us at info@TheSaltSuite.com.

Independent businesses own and operate many suites.

While The Salt Suite® operates and controls the online services, it is not responsible for the operation of most suites. Most suites are instead owned and operated by independent franchisees of The Salt Suite® and some are operated by The Salt Suite® subsidiaries (such franchisees and subsidiaries are together, “suites”). Each suite is solely and independently responsible for its legal and regulatory compliance, for any issues relating to the supply of the products to you, and for any employment related matters in the suite.

Links to job opportunities from the online services.

The Salt Suite® and all suites are equal opportunity employers committed to diverse workforces. The online services may provide links to job opportunities posted by The Salt Suite® or suites. These opportunities are with the suite alone and not with The Salt Suite® or its parent The Salt Suite® (The Salt Suite® Franchising, LLC). This means that the suite that posted the opportunity is alone responsible for setting the job requirements, all hiring decisions, and all other employment related matters in its business. Neither The Salt Suite® nor its parent The Salt Suite® receives a copy of any application you submit to a suite that is a franchisee, neither controls whether you receive an interview or are hired, and neither controls franchisees’ employment policies and practices. Neither The Salt Suite® nor its parent The Salt Suite® employs independent franchisees. If you are hired by a suite that is a franchisee, only that franchisee, and not The Salt Suite® or its parent The Salt Suite® (The Salt Suite® Corporation), will be your employer.

How to contact us.

If you have any questions or comments regarding the online services, please refer to the Contact Us section in the online services or you can always email info@TheSaltSuite.com.

2. Our information practices and communications with you.

The Salt Suite® Privacy Statement.

These terms incorporate The Salt Suite® Privacy Statement as part of the terms. Our Privacy Statement describes our information practices, including how we collect, use and share information.

How we communicate with you.

Through the online services, you may opt in to receive emails, text messages to the mobile number you provide to us or push notifications from The Salt Suite®.

You may also have the ability to change your communication preferences using your device settings. In addition, our communications themselves may include the opportunity to opt out. You understand and agree that you may need to separately manage your communication preferences for each communication method. For example, if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, you may still receive marketing text messages if you’ve opted in to receiving them. While we do our best to offer convenient methods for you to manage your communications preferences, you may need to separately adjust your preferences for each online service. Lastly, please note that if you are receiving communications from a The Salt Suite® franchisee, then you will need to opt out from them directly.

How we settle disputes.

You agree that:

  1. any claim or dispute (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have with The Salt Suite® or any other Members of the The Salt Suite® System arising from or related to the online services or these terms will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a single arbitrator using JAMS’s Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“rules and procedures”);
  2. this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16;
  3. the arbitration shall be held at a location determined by JAMS under its rules and procedures (provided such location is reasonably convenient to you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed to by you and The Salt Suite® or other Members of The Salt Suite® System;
  4. the arbitrator’s decision shall be based on these terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that you may have entered into in connection with the online services;
  5. the arbitrator shall apply North Carolina law consistent with the FAA, and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law;
  6. no claims shall be arbitrated on a class or representative basis as you and The Salt Suite® hereby waive the right to assert claims in any class or representative action; arbitration will therefore only decide the individual claims of you and The Salt Suite®; it is agreed that the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of any other person or party to an arbitration between you and The Salt Suite® under this provision;
  7. you and The Salt Suite® empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these terms or formation of this contract, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these terms are void or voidable;
  8. with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) above is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither The Salt Suite® nor you shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. In such event, you agree to bring any and all claims arising out of or related to these terms or the online services in either the state courts of Forsyth County, North Carolina or the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina. Further, both you and The Salt Suite® agree to waive any right to a trial by jury. Finally, this arbitration provision is reciprocally binding on all parties, such that both you and The Salt Suite® are required to arbitrate their claims against one another. For more information on JAMS and/or JAMS Rules and Procedures, you may visit the JAMS Website.

If the Apple Application that you have purchased does not conform to any warranty applying to it, you may notify Apple, which may refund the purchase price of the Apple Application to you subject to then-current Apple terms and conditions. Subject to that, and to the maximum extent permitted by law, Apple does not give or enter into any warranty, condition or other term in relation to the Apple Application and will not be liable to you for any claims, losses, costs or expenses of whatever nature in relation to the Apple Application or as a result of you or anyone else using the Apple Application or relying on any of its content.

  • The Salt Suite® may transfer its rights and obligations under these terms to another organization or entity, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these terms. You may only transfer your rights or obligations under these terms to another person if The Salt Suite® agrees in writing.
