ZIN LICENSE AGREEMENT
This Membership and License Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into between Zumba Fitness, LLC (“Zumba”), and you (“Instructor”), as of the date Instructor completes the Instructor Licensing Program (“Effective Date”). Upon Instructor’s completion of the Instructor Licensing Program, Instructor shall automatically become a Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN™) Member and be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Zumba and Instructor are referred to singularly herein as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.”
Zumba owns certain word trademarks and service marks, including Zumba®, Let It Move You™, Party in Pink™, and certain trademarked logos, all associated with its Zumba program, music, clothing, footwear and accessories, such logos being attached as Exhibit A (the word and logo marks are collectively referred to as the “Zumba Marks”).
Zumba also owns certain word trademarks and/or service marks, including Zumba Gold®, Zumba® Toning, Aqua Zumba®, Zumba® Kids and Kids, Jr., Zumba® Step, and Zumba® Gold-Toning, as well as certain trademarked logos, all associated with its specialty Zumba® program, such trademarked logos being attached as Exhibit B (the word and logo marks are collectively referred to as the “Zumba Specialty Marks”). The Zumba Marks and Zumba Specialty Marks are collectively referred to as the “Marks”.
Zumba also owns original works of authorship used in association with the Marks, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and other works within the meaning of the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 101, and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works (“Zumba Copyrights”). Zumba has taken all steps necessary to protect the Zumba Copyrights, which are valid, subsisting and in full force and effect.
Zumba uses the Marks and Zumba Copyrights (the Marks and Zumba Copyrights are collectively referred to as the “Zumba IP”) on or in connection with services in the field of dance-fitness (“Services”). Trademarks and/or service marks, including ZIN™ and/or incorporating ZIN™ or the “Zumba Instructor Network” (collectively, the “ZIN Marks”) are used to indicate ZIN Membership. ZIN Membership is open only to individuals; a business, organization, or other entity, including, but not limited to, a gym, cannot qualify for a ZIN Membership.
In consideration of the foregoing, the mutual promises set forth below, and Instructor’s membership in the ZIN program, the Parties agree as follows:
Grant of License. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Zumba grants Instructor a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license, without warranty, (i) to use the Zumba Marks to promote and teach Instructor’s Zumba classes and approved Zumba events, and to use the ZIN Marks to identify Instructor as a ZIN Member (“License”); and (ii) following completion of a specialty licensing program, to use the Zumba Specialty Marks associated with that specialty (“Specialty Mark License”) (e.g., following completion of a Zumba Gold® licensing program, Instructor may use the Zumba Gold marks to promote and teach his/her Zumba Gold® classes).
1.1. Territory. The License and Specialty Mark License are not valid in any country to which the U.S. restricts trade or in any country where exercising rights hereunder would violate any local law, regulation or ordinance. For more information, please visit ZIN Home.
1.2. Term. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect for indefinite successive one (1) month periods (or such other time periods as Instructor selects from time-to-time) unless or until this Agreement is terminated by Zumba or Instructor cancels his/her membership or places his/her membership “on hold” in accordance with Zumba’s cancellation/on-hold policies (“Term”).
1.3 Affiliation. Any use of the Zumba IP including, but not limited to, the use in connection with a domain name, website, social media page, blog, email address, electronic materials or communication, printed materials or communication, or otherwise, must be made in accordance with this Agreement. Such use must not imply an association or affiliation with any third party, including, but not limited to, an implied affiliation with any other brand, organization or company, and/or with any individual not licensed under this Agreement. Where Instructor wishes to use the name, logo or marks of any third party in connection with the use of the Zumba IP, Instructor must obtain the prior approval of Zumba in advance of any such proposed use. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Instructor may use the business name, trade name and/or trademark of a gym or facility where a Zumba class or approved Zumba event is being held, so long as such use is subordinate to the Marks and the use is permitted by the gym or facility.
1.4. Disparagement. Instructor must not, in connection with the use of the Zumba IP, make any unsavory remarks or comments and/or create any materials or content which Zumba determines, in its sole discretion, dilutes, disparages, or is otherwise detrimental to the Zumba IP, the Zumba brand or the goodwill associated therewith. Instructor agrees to promptly comply with any instructions from Zumba, including, but not limited to, the removal, deletion or withdrawal of such remarks, content or materials.
1.5. Ownership of the Zumba IP. Instructor acknowledges that Zumba owns all right, title and interest in the Zumba IP and that he/she will take no action inconsistent with Zumba’s ownership of the Zumba IP. Instructor agrees that Instructor’s use of the Zumba IP inures to the sole benefit of and is on behalf of Zumba. In that regard, Instructor agrees that Zumba shall own any and all live performance copyright rights in and to any Zumba classes or events taught by Instructor, including any copyright rights in the filming, recording, streaming, uploading or reproduction in any way of such classes or events. Instructor further agrees that nothing in this Agreement gives Instructor any right, title or interest in the Zumba IP other than the right to use the Zumba IP as permitted in this Agreement. Instructor agrees that he/she will not contest Zumba’s right, title and interest in the Zumba IP, the validity or enforceability of the Zumba IP, or the validity of this Agreement. Instructor agrees that he/she will not register or attempt to register any trademark, service mark, copyright, trade name, business name and/or business entity that incorporates in any way the word Zumba and/or any of the other Marks, designs or any derivations thereof, nor will he/she assist any third party in doing so.
Subscription Fee. Instructor must pay Zumba a subscription fee in an amount to be set by Zumba from time-to-time (“Fee”), each and every month during the Term. The Fee is subject to change at any time, at Zumba’s sole discretion. Zumba reserves the right to establish, revise, modify or amend its billing practices, methods and fees, including, without limitation, its collection practices, payment practices, and fees for content or services provided on its website(s). Instructor agrees to accept notice of any such changes by way of the changes being posted on the ZIN home page accessible on www.zumba.com (“ZIN Home”). Instructor’s failure to timely make any payments due under this Agreement is a material breach permitting Zumba to immediately cancel Instructor’s ZIN Membership benefits and/or terminate this Agreement.
2.1. Third Party Payments. Zumba accepts payments of the Fee from third parties, such as gyms, facilities or individuals. It is Instructor’s sole responsibility to ensure that the Fee is timely paid each month, regardless of whether the Fee is paid by Instructor or by a third party. A third party paying the Fee on behalf of an Instructor may, at any time, contact Zumba directly to cancel payment of the Instructor’s Fee. In the event the third party cancels payment of the Fee, it is the sole responsibility of Instructor to ensure that any current and future Fees are paid in a timely manner. Zumba will make a reasonable attempt to inform Instructor, by way of an email to the email address provided by Instructor in his/her ZIN Registration Form or as updated by Instructor through his/her profile on ZIN Home, of the cancellation of payment by the third party. Zumba is in no way responsible for making any further attempts to contact Instructor in this regard and accepts no liability for any loss or damage, including termination of this Agreement, suffered by Instructor as a result of non-payment of the Fee.
- Use of ZIN Materials By a Third Party. This Agreement is between Zumba and the Instructor, regardless of whether the Fee is paid by the Instructor or a third party. All ZIN materials distributed to Instructor as a result of this Agreement are the property of Zumba and the Instructor. Any other use or distribution of such materials is strictly prohibited, including, but not limited to, the use of such materials by a gym, facility, or individual who makes one or more payments of the Fee on behalf of Instructor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, gyms and other facilities hosting Instructor’s Zumba classes and/or approved Zumba events may make use of marketing and promotional materials that are made available to such third parties by Zumba in its sole discretion.
- Use of Third Party IP Rights. Instructor must not include third party intellectual property rights in materials promoting Instructor’s Zumba classes or approved Zumba events without the prior written approval of Zumba. However, use of the name or mark of the gym or facility where a Zumba class or approved Zumba event is being held is permitted if subordinate to the Marks and the use is permitted by the gym or facility.
Proper Use of the Marks. Instructor agrees to use the Marks only in the forms shown in Exhibits A and B, including adhering to the correct colors, fonts, stylization, proportionality and other elements of the Marks. Instructor must follow the guidelines provided by Zumba, and always use the appropriate trademark symbol (® or ™) with each use of a Mark.
