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.
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.
HOW INFORMATION IS USED
The following are examples of how Grip The Mat might use the personal information collected through the Website:
* If you sign up for a Grip The Mat event, the required personal information (similar to that provided during a telephone or mail order purchase) will be used to complete your order.
* If you indicate that you are interested in receiving Grip The Mat related news and information, you may receive emails to the email address you provided as part of the registration process.
For the non-personally identifiable information collected throughout the Website:
* Aggregate data could be analyzed to describe the collective characteristics and behaviors of online visitors, and subsequently be used to further optimize the effectiveness of the website, the mobile application, and the overall Grip The Mat experience.

If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due, services or privileges may be suspended or terminated. You shall be responsible and liable for any fees, including attorneys' fees and collection costs, that Grip The Mat may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you.
All sales are final and non-refundable. Tickets are, however, transferable to a future Grip The Mat event with at least 24 hours of advance notice before the missed event.
FOR ATTENDEES RUNNING LATE: We ask that you email Grip The Mat to let us know you are on the way.
FOR ATTENDEES LEAVING EARLY: If you're planning on leaving early, we kindly request that you tell the instructor ahead of time.
