- Although we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the Website and/or information and streaming services are available to you at all times, you agree that we shall not be liable with respect to any loss or damage caused by or arising from the unavailability of, any interruption in or your access or use of the Website and/or our online content and streaming service.

Although we take reasonable measures to ensure that our Livestream Classes run smoothly, we recommend the following to avoid internet interruptions:
- Check your internet speed. Livestream uses a large amount of bandwidth, therefore we recommend you check your internet speed to make sure it has enough bandwidth to support Livestream.
We recommend viewing Livestream from a wired connection with a download speed of at least 1Mbps. As a general rule, your download bandwidth must be greater than the bitrate of the event broadcast you’re trying to watch.
You may test your internet speed at www.speedtest.net. Bandwidth fluctuates constantly (especially on Wi-Fi and mobile internet), so running multiple tests is recommended.
- Use a hard-wired connection instead of Wifi. It is recommended to use a CAT-5 cable to connect your computer to the Ethernet jack instead of wifi. CAT-5 is the standard Ethernet cable.
*If you do not already have an Ethernet cable, these can be found in any electronic store or dollar store.
- Avoid using smartphones for class. It is best to connect to class using a laptop, ipad, etc. versus a smartphone.
- Use headphones
Accessing Livestream from other countries?
If you are accessing livestream from another country, please be sure to check that your geolocation is supported, prior to starting class.
