Bereda Terms of Service
Effective Date: May 25, 2018
Welcome to Bereda. We know that it’s not fun to have to read through all of this stuff in order to understand what’s going on. That said, we need to go through it so that your rights and our rights are understood relating to the provision of the Services (as defined below).
Unfortunately, this document is dense. It has a lot of important information in it. In order to help make it easier to understand, we have provided notes in italics that explain the sections in more simple terms.
Please read this document carefully, and as always feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org
Terms of Service
If you’re on this website or Our platform, then the Terms outlined in this document apply to you.
If you don’t accept the Terms, then please do not use the platform. We reserve the right to update these Terms without notice, but will do our best to alert you if anything material changes.
It’s your responsibility to stay up to date with these terms, but again, we’ll do our best to let you know if anything you would care about changes.
Using the Platform after we change the terms will indicate that you agree to the revised Terms.
IN ORDER TO USE THE WEBSITE, PLATFORM AND SERVICES (DEFINED BELOW), YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE SERVICES AND PROVIDE CERTAIN PERSONAL INFORMATION. FOR INFORMATION ON HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE OUR PRIVACY STATEMENT, THE TERMS OF WHICH FORM AN INTEGRAL PART OF THIS AGREEMENT.

Bereda is an online and mobile-based subscription service to track athletic training and build training plans for endurance sports (collectively, the “Services”). Users either directly upload or import their training data (collected from wearable technology) through integrations with third-party services. Bereda will calculate training plans based on User data to get the User started, but the user is in complete control to customize their plan. Training plans and workout files can be created and exported from Bereda and distributed to other training platforms.
You will be required to pick a password for your Account. As you are responsible for your account, we highly recommend you pick a strong password and do not share it. We will not be held liable for any damages as a result of your Account being compromised.
Please let us know immediately if you think you are aware of any or the potential for any unauthorized access of your Account. We’ll work with you to get it secured again.
By registering for an Account, you represent that you are in the age of majority wherever you reside.
Bereda will send you automated emails from time to time to send you notifications about the Services. You will always be able to opt out of these emails. In some cases, we will send you emails to help administer the Services. If you would like to opt out entirely then we recommend you delete your account.
All information, data, text, software, sound, images, graphics, messages or other materials, including personal information (“User Content”) transmitted to the Platform by Users, including data from third-party integrations, is the sole responsibility of Users. By using the Platform and Services, You represent, warrant and covenant that You have obtained all necessary consents to collect any personal information (including data from a third-party integration) and that You will comply with all applicable laws in using the Platform and Services. Bereda does not control User Content uploaded to the Platform and as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such content. Under no circumstances will Bereda be liable in any way for any User Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any materials or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the viewing or use of any User Content posted, uploaded, transmitted or otherwise made available on the Platform.
Don’t upload other people’s stuff and claim it’s your own. We don’t control the User Content provided to Bereda and under no circumstances will we be held liable for it in any way.
Ownership of Content
Except for the material that We license to You pursuant to Section 6 of this Agreement, Bereda does not claim ownership of any of the materials or User Content created, transmitted, uploaded, stored or otherwise made available on the Platform by You through Your use of the Services. You hereby grant to Bereda a limited license to collect and store User Content for the purpose of providing the Services. You further grant Bereda a perpetual, irrevocable, and unlimited license to use, store, and manipulate User Content to create aggregated and anonymized statistical analytics in respect to Platform use and other Services and User parameters and characteristics (“Anonymous Service Data”) in accordance with the Bereda Privacy Statement. Bereda shall own all right, title and interest in and to the Anonymous Service Data, including all intellectual property rights in the Anonymous Service Data, and You hereby assign, transfer and convey to Bereda any ownership interest You may have in any Anonymous Service Data.
When you upload content to Bereda, we do not own it but you give us the right to use it within reasonable limits in order to help improve our Services.
If You provide Bereda with any suggestions, comments or other feedback (“Feedback”) relating to the website, Bereda may use such Feedback in the website or in any other Bereda products or services (collectively, “Bereda Offerings”). Accordingly, You agree that:
- Bereda is not subject to any confidentiality obligations in respect to the Feedback
- The Feedback is not confidential or proprietary information of You or any third party and You have all of the necessary rights to disclose the Feedback to Bereda
- Bereda (including all of its successors and assigns and any successors and assigns of any of the Bereda Offerings) may freely use, reproduce, publicize, license, distribute, and otherwise commercialize Feedback in any Bereda Offerings
- You are not entitled to receive any compensation or re-imbursement of any kind from Bereda or any of the other users of the Website or Platform.
We appreciate all feedback. Just understand if you submit it that it should not be confidential and can be used by Bereda for various uses. Though not legally required, we typically ask consent before publishing any feedback (IE. on our landing page as a testimonial).
If you purchase a subscription for any Platform Services, You shall pay Bereda the Subscription Fees as specified to You in a Bereda order form (“Order Form”). All amounts are payable in the currency specified in the Order Form. Unless otherwise specified in an Order Form, all fees are due at the beginning of:
- Each month in the case of a monthly subscription;
- year in the case of an annual subscription.
We will always show you an order form before setting up a subscription for you. Fees are paid at the beginning of each usage period.
Invoicing and Payment
Bereda will invoice You electronically and You agree to accept Bereda’s invoices in that manner. Unless otherwise stated an invoice sent to You by Bereda, all invoiced amounts for the Services are due upon receipt of Bereda’s invoices for such amounts. If You have enrolled in automatic billing, You shall:
- Keep your billing, credit card and payment information accurate and up to date, otherwise, Bereda may suspend provision of the Services;
- Promptly advise Bereda if billing or credit card information changes due to loss, theft, cancellation or otherwise;
- Be liable for failure to pay any fees caused by Your failure to provide Bereda with up to date billing information; and
- Upon termination of the Services, provide Bereda with a forwarding address for all final invoices or correspondence if Your mailing address differs from that which You provided in your Account.
If we fail to bill you successfully, your premium access will be temporarily revoked until we have successfully billed you again. We invoice electronically, and you can find your invoices in the application.
Unless otherwise stated, Bereda’s prices for the Services do not include any direct or indirect local, state, provincial, federal or foreign taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including value-added, goods and services, harmonized, use or withholding taxes (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all applicable Taxes associated with purchases pursuant to these Terms, excluding taxes based on Bereda’s net income or property. If Bereda has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by You, unless You provide Bereda with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
Unless otherwise stated, the prices we list in our pricing page and billing management flow do not account for any taxes.
By providing credit card information to Bereda as part of Your Account registration, You authorize Bereda to charge Your credit card for all outstanding fees, taxes and charges and outstanding account balances incurred by You in respect to the Services, and this Section 4.4 constitutes Bereda’s good and sufficient authority for so doing. If You do not provide notice of non-renewal of the subscription for the Services (of at least 30 days for any monthly subscription and 60 days for any annual subscription), then the relevant fees for the renewal of Your subscription to the Services for a new subscription having the same subscription term will be automatically processed and charged to You in full at the then-current fees for the Services for such renewed term.
By adding payment information to the website, you agree that we can charge you for the Services provided by Bereda. Let us know in good time if you would like to not renew your Services. Alternatively, you can just remove your payment information and your premium access will suspend the next time we attempt to bill you.
Bereda may change the fees Bereda charges for the Services at any time in Bereda’s discretion. Changes to the fees will be communicated by being posted on the Bereda website and will become effective at the time of posting, provided, however, any fee changes will not change subscription fees applicable to Your current subscription term, however, such fee changes will be applicable to Your next subscription renewal. If You do not wish to pay the changed fees, then Your sole recourse is to not renew Your subscription for the Service.
We are allowed to change our prices. We will make reasonable efforts to update you on the new prices. If you don’t agree to the changed fees then you should not renew your subscription.
Suspension of Service
In the event that the credit card You provided is rejected for any reason, Bereda shall have the right to immediately suspend the Services provided to You, without liability to You, until such amounts are paid in full.
We reserve the right to suspend access to the Platform if you have outstanding fees.

If we terminate your account, we’re allowed to still bill you for anything you owe. All of our billing is pre-paid at this point so this isn’t worth worrying about too much.

There is no guarantee that any of the information provided by the Website or Platform will be applicable to You and Bereda does not make any representations or warranties about the effectiveness of any of the information and materials provided by the Website, Platform or Services.

We’re a website, not an oracle. We’ll do our best to provide you with great training plans but can’t be expected to provide perfect plans. It’s on you to make sure you’re up to the training you do as a result of planning with Bereda. Don’t go out and blast a bunch of 100 milers if you’re recovering from heart surgery. We don’t want that on our conscience, it’s not going to end well for anyone. Take it slow and make sure you stick within your limits!
