Row Republic does not accept the online registration of minors without the known consent of their legal guardian; please do not attempt to register on the Website if you are under the age of 13. If Row Republic discovers that personal information has been submitted by a minor without the known consent of their legal guardian, Row Republic reserves the right to delete such information.
You agree to comply with our Class rules which you can see online or displayed in all of our locations. The access rules relate to our opening hours, use of our facilities and your conduct. Instructors and Classes are subject to change. We reserve the right to refuse you access to the Studios and suspend or terminate your use of the Services if we reasonably consider that your conduct is damaging to our reputation, is in breach of these Conditions or would otherwise be in the interests of other users of the Studios or participants in our Classes.
To book a Class, your account must include at least one Credit. One Credit entitles you to attend one Class. You can purchase Credits via our Website or App. Multiple Credits can also be purchased as bundles at discounted rates. Price details for Credits are available on our Website or App and shall be such prices as determined by us. You should be aware that classes and series expire, and future prices are subject to change. Subject to any statutory right of cancellation, payments for Credits are non-refundable unless otherwise stated in these Conditions.
BOOKING A CLASS
You can check availability and book Classes in advance online via our Website. When you book a Class, one Credit will be deducted from your account. We make every effort to ensure that there are a suitable number of Classes available at different times of the day. However, classes are subject to availability and we do not guarantee that spaces will be available in any given Class, even if you have sufficient Credits in your account.
You may cancel a booking up to 12 hours before the schedule start time of the Class and receive a refund of your Credit. If you cancel a booking within 12 hours of the schedule start time of the Class (including places allocated via the waitlist), your Credit will not be refunded. If the Class you wish to attend is fully booked, you may choose an alternative Class with remaining spaces. Alternatively, you may join a waitlist for the fully booked class. When you join the waitlist, one Credit will be deducted from your account. If you join the waitlist and a space becomes available, you will be automatically added to the Class. You will be notified by e-mail if you are automatically added to a Class.
If you join a waitlist but no longer wish to attend the Class, you should cancel the booking via our Website as soon as possible. If you are added to a Class you may cancel up to 12 hours before the Class and receive a refund of your Credit but you will not be refunded if you cancel within 12 hours of the Class.
If you join the waitlist and a place on the fully booked Class does not become available by the start of Class, the Credit debited from your account to join the waitlist will be refunded. If we cancel a class, your Credit will be refunded.
If you change your mind about any Goods purchased from us, you may return them to any of our Studios within 7 days with your receipt and we will give you a full refund provided that the Goods are unused and are not damaged. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

All information is provided by Row Republic on an “as is” basis only. Row Republic provides no representations and warranties, express or implied, including the implied warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, merchantability, and non-infringement.
GENERAL STATEMENT ON PRIVACY, PERSONAL DATA, AND COMMUNICATIONS
If you use the Website or the App, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, password, and for restricting access to your computer or device. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and password.
When you visit the Website, use the App, or communicate with Row Republic via email, you are communicating electronically. You consent to receive communications from Row Republic electronically. Row Republic will communicate with you by email or by posting notifications on the Website and/or the App. You understand and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Row Republic provides electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
USER PROVIDED INFORMATION
Row Republic does not collect any personal information about individuals – such as names and postal codes, home addresses, and email addresses – except when such information is knowingly provided to Row Republic. Personal information might be obtained from online transactions such as class/series purchases, retail purchases, and/or class registrations. Additionally, personal information may be transmitted as part of a form submission or in connection with other activities or services made available on the Website or App. Any personal identification information retrieved by Row Republic must be voluntarily submitted by the user. Row Republic may use the information provided to contact you with important information, required notices, and marketing promotions.
AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED INFORMATION
The Website and App collect some anonymous information about users automatically when individuals request pages through a browser. This information is used to keep track of the shopping cart and to help us monitor how individuals use the Website and App, which allows Row Republic to provide an optimal experience and better service throughout the online offerings. The information collected automatically by the server does not contain anything that can identify individuals personally, such as an email or home address.
Row Republic 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 and App. 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 Row Republic 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.
A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files that were created by other sites – the website that creates a cookie is the only one a browser will permit to access it.
