These general terms and conditions apply to the Agreement entered into between ONE Institute and a Customer, including any amended or successor Agreement. Furthermore, these general terms and conditions apply between ONE Institute and Participants facilitated by the Customer.
These general conditions also apply for the benefit of anyone employed by ONE Institute, anyone engaged by ONE Institute, and anyone for whose actions ONE Institute is or may be liable.
The applicability of any other general terms and conditions is hereby expressly excluded.
Article 3 – Conclusion of the Agreement
The Agreement comes into effect the moment the Client gives ONE Institute the order to perform Personal Training or Group Training.
The Agreement is personal and the Customer is not entitled to transfer the rights and obligations in whole or in part to third parties, on the understanding that in case the Customer is a legal entity and/or employer, it is entitled to designate Participants to whom this article applies.
Together with the Agreement, these general terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between ONE Institute and the Customer and, where applicable, the legal entity and/or employer Customer.
If the Customer or Participant is a minor, the Customer or Participant requires written permission from both parents or legal representatives to enter into the Agreement with ONE Institute or to train as a Participant with ONE Institute.
The execution of the Agreement takes place exclusively for the benefit of the Client. Third parties cannot derive any rights from this, with the exception of article 3 paragraph 2.
Article 4 – Payment and prices
The Customer must have paid the payment for the first period under the Agreement prior to the first training.
In principle, payments relate to a period of four weeks and are collected by direct debit.
If for any reason ONE Institute cannot collect a payment from the Customer, ONE Institute will send another collection request to the Customer’s bank and ONE Institute will remind the Customer of his or her payment obligation. Payment is due at the moment ONE Institute gives this notice to the Customer. If payment is not made upon renewed collection, the Customer is in default and is liable for payment of the statutory (commercial) interest from the date of default, as well as for all costs incurred by ONE Institute in connection with the collection.
ONE Institute reserves the right to change its rates annually based on the change of the monthly price index figure according to the consumer price index (CPI) series all 8/13 households (2006=100), published by Statistics Netherlands (CBS). The changed rate is calculated according to the formula: the changed rate is equal to the applicable rate on the change date, multiplied by the index figure of the calendar month that lies four calendar months before the calendar month in which the rate is changed, divided by the index figure of the calendar month that lies sixteen calendar months before the calendar month in which the rate is changed. If the indexation of the tariff results in a lower tariff than the last applicable one, no change will take place. If the Client is a consumer, ONE Institute will not increase its rates until three months have elapsed since the Agreement was concluded.
Article 5 – Duration and termination of the Agreement
Unless otherwise agreed, the Agreement runs for the duration of one year. After expiry of the agreed term, the Agreement shall tacitly continue for an indefinite period and may be terminated with a notice period of one month.

If the Agreement has been concluded for the duration of one month, this Agreement shall end by operation of law at the end of this month. In case the Agreement is tacitly or expressly continued thereafter, this Agreement will be renewed for an indefinite period with a notice period of one month.
Article 6 – Cancellation of a training course
A Client or Participant may cancel the booked training course free of charge up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled training course. In that case, ONE Institute and the Client or Participant shall agree on another time for the training in consultation. The Client or Participant may book the cancelled training within a period of one month, under penalty of forfeiture of this claim against ONE Institute.
An appointment for a training course not cancelled in time will be charged full price
If the Client or Participant is more than 15 minutes late for the scheduled training, ONE Institute reserves the right to cancel the appointment without the Client being entitled to a refund. The time the Client or Participant is late for the training will not be made up.
Article 7 – Reflection period for the consumer
If the Client acts as a consumer, he or she has the right to rescind the Agreement within a period of 14 days after signing without giving any reason (rescission period), if the Agreement was concluded via ONE Institute’s website or otherwise remotely. If the 14th day falls on a weekend or on a nationally recognised public holiday, the period for dissolution runs until the end of the first subsequent working day.
If the Customer has not used ONE Institute’s services within the dissolution period, dissolution is free of charge for the Customer.
If the Customer has made use of ONE Institute’s services within the dissolution period, the Customer shall be liable to pay compensation for this corresponding to a proportional part of the price stipulated in the Agreement.
The possibility of dissolution mentioned in this article does not apply if the Agreement was concluded in a ONE Institute gym.
