You may view information and materials on our sites and download only a single copy of these for your personal, non-commercial use. You agree not to license, distribute, create adaptations or derivative works from, transfer, sell or re-sell any document, information, content, or service obtained from our sites without our specific prior written consent.

Where we give specific written consent that you may distribute or redistribute articles, messages or other content posted to our sites you may carry out the activities that we have consented to only on the condition that you maintain

  • All copyright and trademark notices,
  • Attribution of authorship to the extent available, and

Links from and to the www.lesmills.co.nz Website

Les Mills provides some links to other websites operated by other parties as a convenience to our visitors and clients. However your use of these links and sites is entirely at your own risk. Les Mills does not accept any liability with regard to access to these websites, their content or use. 

You must not link or deep link into www.lesmills.co.nz  from any other website or electronic system without our prior written consent, being consent which we may withhold or withdraw at any time in our entire discretion.

Interactive services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on or through our sites, including, without limitation:

  • Chat rooms.
  • Bulletin boards.
  • Other forums such as Facebook or twitter.

(referred to in these conditions as "interactive services").

Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our sites, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our sites, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool-proof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
