Welcome to Go Swim!
This is a site owned and operated by Go Swim Productions, LLC, and any other affiliated companies (collectively referred to herein as “Go Swim” and “we” and through similar words such as “us,” “our,” etc.).
We are located on the Internet primarily at the URLs https://www.goswim.tv and www.goswim.tv (and/or at successor, affiliated or associated domains or through various mobile or device-oriented distribution platforms, though any of these URLs or others may change or one or both may be discontinued or redirected to another URL, in our discretion) (the "Go Swim Sites" or "Sites").
This site hosts, publishes and distributes content and other offerings (which may be made available for free or by registration and/or paid subscription) provided by Go Swim, its affiliated companies, its suppliers and licensors, and various other third parties we have engaged with ("Go Swim Offerings" or "Offerings"). Many parts of this site feature content produced by our users, such as you. We may change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the site or our offerings at any time.
Subscription-Based Offerings. Select Go Swim Offerings may require subscription for a fee. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated in a timely manner with a payment accepted by the Sites. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees using other collection mechanisms. Go Swim reserves the right to change the fees at any time in its sole discretion. Occasionally there may be information on the Sites that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and availability. Go Swim reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information on the Sites or in any of Go Swim Offerings is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order). Any change, update, or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on our Sites.
Subscription Terms; Auto-Renewal. Subscriptions will remain in effect until the end of the selected term. Subscriptions are automatically recurring, but recurring action can be terminated at any time* Once a subscription is enacted, no refunds will be granted. If a recurring subscription is canceled, the content will remain accessible by the subscriber until the end of the subscribed term.
Transactions on Sites. Go Swim reserves the right to refuse any order placed on the Site or for any of Go Swim Offerings, and may, in its sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event Go Swim makes a change to or cancels an order, it will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. Go Swim reserves the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors, or to refuse to service a customer for any reason.
Changes in Price; No Refunds. Go Swim may at any time, upon notice required by applicable law, change the price of Go Swim Offerings or Go Swim Sites or any part thereof, institute new charges or fees, or charge a fee for any of Go Swim Offerings or Sites or any part thereof where a fee was not previously charged. All Fees charged are final and nonrefundable.
Account Information. If you access and use areas of the Sites that require a registration or subscription, you may be assigned or be asked to select a UserID and password. In such cases, you will be agreeing to be governed by the Subscriber Terms of Service as to your use of Go Swim Sites and Go Swim Offerings, whether or not the areas of the Sites or Offerings you access or use require you to register as a prerequisite.
There are some areas of Go Swim Sites or functions of Go Swim Offerings, such as the comments forums, that may require you to provide temporary contact information, not actually register for continued access. (Please see section entitled "User Submissions" below for additional provisions related to comment and similar forums on Go Swim Sites.) In these cases, unless you are already registered, we do not retain such contact information once our use of it is over. This means you may be asked repeatedly to provide the same or similar information at different places in our site or to access the same functionalities during a subsequent visit.
If we do retain the information, it will be because you have previously registered with Go Swim, whether or not you were logged in at the time of providing the additionally requested information, or such information will be used only for the purposes for which you provided such information as the context dictates or in ways we will disclose to you at such time.

Third-Party Content. Certain of the content on our site and featured in our offerings are supplied by third parties. In many of these cases, we are a distributor (not a publisher) of such supplied or licensed content and thus any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed by such third parties are their own, and not of Go Swim. In these cases, Go Swim is a distributor (and not a publisher) of content when the content is supplied by third parties, Training Group User(s) and other end users such as you. Go Swim does not exercise editorial control over such content. Accordingly, Go Swim, and in many cases and contexts, such third-party suppliers, providers and contributors, do not and cannot guaranty the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any such content, nor its merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose. Under no circumstances will Go Swim be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on information obtained through Go Swim Sites or Offerings. It is your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice or other content available through Go Swim Sites or Offerings. (Please see the section entitled "Disclaimer of Warranty; Limitation of Liability" for additional provisions regarding these matters.)
Linking to Go Swim Sites or Offerings. If you link to Go Swim Sites, your link must not damage, dilute or tarnish the goodwill associated with Go Swim and/or any of our licensors, suppliers, customers and other end users, including by linking from a site that is unlawful, abusive, indecent or obscene, that promotes violence or illegal acts or that is otherwise inappropriate in Go Swim's sole discretion. No link may create the false appearance that your web site or organization is sponsored, endorsed by, affiliated or associated with Go Swim or any licensors, suppliers, customers or end users, and you may not “frame” any of Go Swim Sites or Offerings. By accessing and using any of Go Swim Sites or Offerings, you agree that, upon Go Swim's request, you will remove any link we request you to remove.
