  1. Payment To The Service Provider Through Training Block
    1. When a service is booked by a Customer, the Customer makes payment for the service, held in escrow pending completion of that service on the agreed-upon date.  Once the service has been completed, you will receive your payment from the Customer directly via the Training Block platform.  For services that continue for a set length of time (ex: online coaching plan, ongoing nutrition consultation, meal plan services), the Customer makes payment for the service when the service is booked, and the Provider will immediately receive payment from the Customer directly via the Training Block platform. 
    2. By participating in the above and agreeing to the Training Block Terms, you agree that you are accepting payments from Training Block Customers via the Training Block Website and that Training Block is authorized to store your bank account or debit card information for future payments, and that Training Block may deposit all future payments into your Training Block account. You further agree that you will not seek payment from the Customer directly where you have received payment from the consumer through Training Block.
    3. You acknowledge and agree that your payments made through Training Block are transactions between you and the consumer and not with Training Block or any of its affiliates. Training Block is not a party to your payments unless expressly designated as such on the Training Block website.
    4. You agree to release Training Block, its affiliates, and their agents, contractors, officers and employees, from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) arising out of or in any way connected with a dispute related to payment through Training Block. You agree that you will not involve Training Block in any litigation or other dispute arising out of or related to any transaction, agreement, or arrangement in connection with payment through Training Block. If you attempt to do so, (i) you shall pay all costs and attorneys' fees of Training Block and its affiliates and shall provide indemnification as set forth below, and (ii) the jurisdiction for any such litigation or dispute shall be limited to Florida.  However, nothing in these Terms waives any rights, claims or defenses that you may have with respect to a payment under an agreement with your method of payment issuer, the card association rules or applicable state and federal laws.
    5. Payment processing services for Service Providers are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, located at https://stripe.com/us/connect-account/legal, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service, located at https://stripe.com/us/legal (collectively, the Stripe Services Agreement).

As a condition of participating in Training Block payment through Stripe, you agree to provide Training Block accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize Training Block to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe. You also authorize Training Block to pass on information provided by you (e.g. your birthday or the last four digits of your social security number) to Stripe so that Stripe may use it to protect the integrity of your account.
    6. While we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all credit card and all other personal information, we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage that may result should any information be released to any third parties, and you agree to hold us harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.
    7. If we determine that your actions or performance may result in returns, chargebacks, claims, disputes, violations of our terms or policies, or other risks to Training Block or third parties, then Training Block may withhold any payments to you for as long as we determine any related risks to Training Block or third parties persist. For any amounts that we determine you owe us, we may (i) offset any amounts that are payable by you to us (in reimbursement or otherwise) against any payments we may make to you or amounts we may owe you; (ii) invoice you for amounts due to us, in which case you will pay the invoiced amounts upon receipt; (iii) reverse any credits to your bank account; or (iv) collect payment or reimbursement from you by any other lawful means.
