If you are less than 18 years of age and would like to register to use any part of the Services, please ask your parent or legal guardian (“Guardian”) to review and agree to these terms before you use any part of the Services or ask them to complete the purchase or registration on your behalf. If you download, access, use or register for the Service as a Guardian, you are accepting this Agreement individually and on behalf of each User under the age of eighteen (18) for whom you are the parent or legal guardian.
If you download, access, use, or register for the Service on behalf of an Organization (e.g. team, school, community group, etc.) or as a Team Administrator as described herein, “you” includes yourself individually and such Organization. You represent and warrant that you are a duly authorized representative of such Organization and have the authority to bind such Organization to this Agreement.
These Terms and Conditions apply to all Users, including Users who are simply viewing content available via the Service, Users utilizing free Services, and Users who have engaged for paid Services. These terms of Service shall apply to Team Administrators, Guardians, Evaluators (terms defined below), and Athletes recording performance on the Service (“Athletes” and, collectively with Team Administrators and Guardians, “Users,” “you” and through similar words such as “your,” etc.). Not all terms shall apply to all types of Users where specified in the Terms and Conditions.

We reserve the right to refuse a User’s access to the Service for any reason, at our sole discretion. In addition, at our sole discretion, we may suspend or terminate a User’s account for any reason. Such termination of your account will result in your loss of access to the Service. We will not be liable for any decision to suspend, terminate or refuse service under any circumstances.
The Service is controlled and offered by us from our facilities in the United States of America. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
Compliance. To ensure you remain in compliance with these Terms and Conditions, GoSwim recommends reviewing the current Terms and Conditions each time you access or use the Services. All access to and use of the Services, Accounts and the materials, content, information and data contained on or provided through the Services and Accounts are subject to compliance with these Terms and Conditions and all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, you shall have no other rights to the Services, and no other rights shall be implied.
Visitors to the Service and Account Creation. You may be able to visit certain public sections of the Services without identifying yourself or providing personal information. In order to access some features of the Services, you are required to register with the Services and select a username and password (create an “Account”). By registering for an Account, you represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate. You may not have more than one (1) Account without GoSwim’s permission and you must access the Service and non-public portions of the Website and App through your Account. The security and confidentiality of your Account username and password is your sole responsibility. You shall ensure that no unauthorized person shall have access to your Account, username, or password and shall immediately notify GoSwim of any unauthorized access or use of which you become aware. You agree to bear all responsibility and liability for all actions under or through your Account as well as all fees and/or charges incurred from the use of your Account, whether authorized or unauthorized. You may update your Account by changing the Account settings.
Individual Accounts and Data. All of your information and data provided to GoSwim in connection with registering for your Account (“Registration Data”) must be true, accurate, current, and complete at all times, and it is your responsibility to immediately update your Registration Data should any changes occur in order to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, or if GoSwim has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, GosSwim has the right to suspend or terminate your Account as described in these Terms. If you are registering for Accounts of behalf of others (e.g., an Team Administrator registering on behalf of Athletes or Guardians), you warrant that the appropriate permissions and authorizations have been received prior to such registration.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you hereby authorize GoSwim and its affiliates, contractors and suppliers to use, copy, sublicense and disclose Registration Data (i) as part of providing the Services, (ii) if required by applicable law, where necessary to enforce these Terms and Conditions and/or to protect any of GoSwim’s or other parties’ legal rights, (iii) in an aggregated form which does not include your identifying information, and (iv) as permitted by GoSwim’s Privacy Notice. You are solely responsible to obtain any necessary rights, authorizations and consents with respect to your User Registration Data, including, without limitation, to grant the foregoing rights to GoSwim and its affiliates, contractors and suppliers. If you provide GoSwim your email address, you hereby consent to and authorize GoSwim to (a) send notices regarding the Services to such email address, instead of notice by other means such as mail, and (b) send other messages to such email address, such as changes to features of the Services and special offers (collectively, “Other Messages”). If you do not want to receive Other Messages, you may opt out in your Account settings. Opting out of receiving Other Messages may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, changes to the Services or offers.
GoSwim Marketplace GoSwim partners with a network of experts to review and evaluate Athletes swimming skills (“Evaluators”) who make themselves available to Athletes via the GoSwim Marketplace. The Evaluator-Athlete relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that the Althletes/Guardians shares with an Evaluator as part of the relationship, is bound to confidentiality but is not considered a legally confidential relationship (as would be protected by a law/regulation, like a doctor or attorney). The Evaluator agrees not to disclose any information pertaining to the Athlete without the Athlete or Guardian’s written consent. The Evaluator will not disclose the Athlete’s name as a reference without the Athlete or Guardian’s consent. Confidential information does not include information that: (a) was in the Evaluator’s possession prior to its being furnished by the Athlete/Guarduan; (b) is generally known to the public or in the swimming industry; (c) is obtained by the Evaluator from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Athlete; (d) is independently developed by the Evaluator without use of or reference to the Athlete’s confidential information; or (e) that the Evaluator is required by law to disclose.
- Athletes/Guardians. You are not obligated to engage with Evaluators on the GoSwim Marketplace as a part of the services. Evaluators are not employees, contractors, or otherwise affiliated with GoSwim, GoSwim merely provides the GoSwim Marketplace to facilitate connections between Athletes and Evaluators. While Evaluators may provide background on their expertise on the GoSwim Marketplace, by engaging in the GoSwim Marketplace, you acknowledge and understand that GoSwim does not confirm whether Evaluators are licensed, certified, or otherwise credentialed in coaching, fitness, or any other professional classification, and GoSwim offers no such licenses or certifications. You agree that GoSwim is not liable for any actions or inactions, or for any direct or indirect result of your interactions with Evaluators on the GoSwim Marketplace. You agree that GoSwim is not providing health, medical, or other licensed professional services through the GoSwim Marketplace. You should not provide Protected Health Information (“PHI”), as that term is defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), to GoSwim. The degree to which interactions with Evaluators are occurring on the GoSwim platform, GoSwim agrees to maintain confidentiality as part of the relationship formed through the GoSwim Marketplace, however this relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship. GoSwim agrees not to disclose any of your information provided on the GoSwim Marketplace without your consent. No assurances offered in this section apply to Evaluators.
- Evaluators: In addition to these Terms, as an Evaluator, you may have engaged with GoSwim under a separate, written agreement. Such agreement is separate from these Terms, and in the event such agreement conflicst with these Terms, that agreement shall control. Absent an agreement that conflicts, these Terms shall apply in full to your relationship with GoSwim.
- Fees. We reserve the right, at any time, to change any fees or charges for Users (or to begin charging fees for any free service), provided that such changes will not apply to fees or charges paid prior to the time of the change. We will charge you sales tax as applicable to the Service or any order placed through the Service, based on your billing address. In addition, you will be responsible for all other taxes, levies, duties or similar charges, only excluding taxes based on our income.
- Compensation. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify compensation for Users, provided that such changes will not apply to compensation for work completed prior to the time of the change. GoSwim will not withhold for income or social security taxes payable by or relating to User or any contracted personnel, and User agrees to pay such taxes directly to the appropriate taxing authority, as applicable. Similarly, GoSwim will not provide worker's compensation benefits or any form of insurance or other fringe benefits customarily furnished employees to any Interviewer or other contracted personnel. Each Party bears responsibility for its own payment(s) of all taxes applicable to its earnings hereunder.
User Content. The Services may contain User-generated or provided data, content, and materials, including but not limited to User Generated Content and Athlete Videos, as described in the Privacy Notice(“User Content”). User Content is the sole responsibility of the User that submitted that User Content. GoSwim does not control User Content generated or provided by Users and is under no circumstances responsible or liable in any way for any User Content that is made available through the Services. GoSwim does not endorse any User Content, and does not warrant or guarantee the integrity, truthfulness, accuracy or quality of any User Content. GoSwim reserves the right (but is not obligated) to edit or remove any User Content in whole or part, at any time and for any or no reason. You agree that GoSwim is not liable for any loss or damage of any kind resulting from availability, access and/or use of any User Content.

You agree that any User Content that you post does not and will not violate third-party rights of any kind, including without limitation any Intellectual Property Rights or rights of privacy. GoSwim reserves the right, but is not obligated, to reject and/or remove any User Content that GoSwim believes, in its sole discretion, violates these provisions. You understand that publishing your User Content on the Service is not a substitute for registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office, the Writer’s Guild of America, or any other rights organization.
While the relationship between Team Administrators, Evaluators, and Guardians/Athletes is not governed by these Terms and Conditions, Team Administrators and Evaluators agree that any User Content that could be classified as the personal information of a Guardian or Athlete (see Privacy Notice), including, but not limited to, Athlete Videos recorded by the Team Administrator or viewed by the Evaluator, will be deleted from a Team Administrator or Evaluator account at the request of the Athlete/Guardian. GoSwim reserves the right to, though it is not obligated to, suspend or terminate a Team Administrator or Evaluator account for failure to delete such Athlete Videos upon request. Nothing in this paragraph, or these Terms and Conditions, makes GoSwim liable or responsible for the action or inaction of a Team Administrator.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, no App Store will have any other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty shall be GoSwim’s sole responsibility.
- your claims are limited by these Terms and Conditions. To the extent you have any claims relating to the App, GoSwim, not any App Store, is solely responsible for addressing such claims, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims, (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection, privacy or similar legislation.
- GoSwim shall not be obligated to indemnify, defend or hold you harmless from any third party claims relating to the App. To the extent that GoSwim is responsible to indemnify you under applicable law in the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, GoSwim, not any App Store, shall be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.
- you represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
- Each App Store, including its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these Terms and Use, and upon your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, each App Store will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms and Conditions against you as a third party beneficiary.
