Orders For DSTC Products
DSTC strives to provide high-quality triathlon training programs, nutrition programs, fitness programs, products, and instructional videos (the “Products”). DSTC produces certain products, programs and instructional materials available for sale via the website. Any and all materials presented in the purchased DSTC Products may be used solely for personal, non-commercial informational purposes. No materials presented in the purchased DSTC Products may be reproduced, resold or transmitted in any form, by any means, electronic or mechanical, including photocopying and recording for any other purpose.
Should you purchase any DSTC Products, you agree to pay in full the prices for any purchases you make either by credit card or debit card concurrent with your online order. You agree to pay all applicable taxes. If payment is not received by DSTC from your credit card or debit card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by DSTC. Certain DSTC Products that you purchase may be subject to additional terms and conditions presented to you at the time of such purchase or download. Once the DSTC product is purchased, except as explicitly described in our refund policy, DSTC will not issue a refund.
Some parts of the Services are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or DSTC cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting DSTC customer support team.
A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide DSTC with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize DSTC to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, DSTC will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, before a certain specified deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
DSTC may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time (“Free Trial”).
You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial.
If you enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by DSTC until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you canceled your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected.
At any time and without notice, DSTC reserves the right to (i) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer; or (ii) cancel such Free Trial offer.
DSTC, at its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
DSTC will provide you with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Except when required by law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable.
