TERMS AND CONDITIONS
When you access the Site, in any manner, whether automated or otherwise, it constitutes use of the Site and your agreement to be bound by these Terms. We reserve the right to change these Terms and to add new conditions on use of the Site, from time to time, in which case we will post the revised Terms on this Site. By continuing to use the Site after we post any such changes, you accept the modified Terms. You are responsible for keeping up to date.
Your Use of Our Site
By registering to use the Site, you certify that the information you provided during your registration is accurate. You must be at least 18 years old to use the Site.
Sessions Membership Platform
Sessions is a unique membership platform comprised of monthly featured interviews, Q&A webinars and calls, articles and resources, and includes online streaming videos and audio files, and related coursework, sound recordings, photographs, software, text, graphics, images and other material (collectively, “Sessions”). Other than the featured Q&A webinars and calls, Sessions does not include any direct consultation or interaction with Esther Perel or any other representative of the Company.
If you would like to subscribe to Sessions, you must pay a subscription fee in any of these three ways: (i) a yearly payment of $630, or (ii) a monthly payment of $70, or (iii) a monthly payment of $40.
One subscription entitles you alone to view and participate in Sessions. Monthly payments of $70 or yearly payments of $630 entitle you to view the monthly Q+A sessions live via webinar. Monthly payments of $40 entitle you to the archive of the Q+A.
An active subscription will provide access to the entire history of training materials. Cancellation or expiration of the subscription will remove all materials from your course library.
Sessions offers an opportunity to purchase Continuing Education Units (CE) for additional payment.
All sales are billed in United States Dollars as required by law. You agree to pay all fees incurred by you, and you hereby authorize us and our third-party payment service providers to collect such fees using the credit card or other payment method you provide to us.
If you notify us within 30 days of your initial purchase that you are not satisfied with Sessions or due to a change of circumstance you can no longer use Sessions, we will issue you a refund.
After the 30th day of your purchase we may, at our sole discretion, choose to refund the applicable fee, in whole or in part, if we believe a refund is justified.
If you abuse this refund policy, as we determine at our sole discretion, you may no longer be able to get a refund and access your account.
Registration and Passwords
To use Sessions, you will receive a username and password during your registration process that are unique to you. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are responsible for all activities (whether by you or by others) that occur under your password or account. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your password or account information.
If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you shared the login information with anyone else, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of Sessions and the Site (or any portion thereof).
We are under no obligation to accept any individual as a user and may accept or reject any subscription for Sessions in our sole and complete discretion.
Sessions includes a variety of features, such as live streaming videos, webinars, forums, bulletin boards, blogs, comment fields, chat rooms, and email services, which allow feedback to us and real-time interaction between users, and other features which allow users to communicate with others.

Throughout the Site, we may provide links and pointers to internet sites maintained by third parties. Our linking to such third-party sites does not imply an endorsement or sponsorship of such sites, or the information, products or services offered on or through the sites. In addition, neither we nor our partners and affiliates operate or control in any respect any information, products or services that third parties may provide on or through the Site or on websites linked to by us on the Site.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act
We respect the intellectual property rights of others. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under US copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by this Site infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to us a notice in accordance with the requirements of the DMCA requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked, and including the following: (i) a description of the copyrighted work that has been infringed and the specific location on the Site where such work is located; (ii) a description of the location of the original or an authorized copy of the copyrighted work; (iii) your address, phone number and email address; (iv) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; (v) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf; and (vi) an electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest.
Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon us any actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to us a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. Our copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached at [email protected]
These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Company and our respective assigns, successors, heirs, and legal representatives. Neither these Terms nor any rights hereunder may be assigned without our prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may assign all rights and obligations under these Terms to any affiliated entity or any of its wholly-owned subsidiaries.
Choice of Law
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration
If there is a dispute arising from or relating to these Terms, your use of the Site or any content, you agree to contact us at [email protected] and attempt to amicably resolve the dispute prior to taking more formal action.
If the dispute is not resolved in a reasonable amount of time, either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. If either party elects arbitration, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and applying New York law (excluding its conflict of laws provisions). Arbitration will be held in New York City. The award rendered by the arbitrator will be final and binding, and judgment upon such award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in the foregoing limits our ability to seek equitable relief, including injunctive relief and specific performance, from any court of competent jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Statute of Limitations
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action by you arising out of or related to these Terms or the use of the Site must be submitted for arbitration within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
