WHEREAS, Stylist desires to take advantage of Company’s offer;

NOW, THEREFORE, in signing this Agreement, the parties acknowledge the good and valuable consideration that gives them the desire to be bound to the following terms, conditions, restrictions, and releases:

  1. Consideration. Stylist agrees to pay Company, and Company agrees to provide to Stylist, the following:
    1. Stylist shall pay to Company {{order_total}} for Swan Method Training.
    2. Company shall provide Stylist with premier access to an online, live class in which Company founder Leda Fazal will (1) teach all aspects of the Swan Method, including placement, cut, and removal of extensions; (2) review and advise Stylist regarding Stylist’s social media presence; (3) provide general advice regarding lighting and other setting aspects for optimal photo/video presentation; and (4) marketing tips and tricks specifically related to TikTok.
    3. The Company is obligated to furnish the Stylist with a pre-recorded video tutorial encompassing The Swan Method Training for the exclusive and sole reference of the Stylist for a period of 6 months from the date of purchase. In the event that the Stylist requires an extension, a consultation with Ms. Leda Fazal is required, and a reinstatement fee will be applicable to access The Swan Method for an additional 6 months.
    4. Stylist shall receive a certification of completion from Company upon Company’s approval.
    5. Company will include Stylist on the Company’s website via the website’s stylist locator tool.
    6. Company will not provide any tools or materials other than that which is explicitly stated herein.
  2. Access and Usage Rights and Restriction
    1. Stylist understands that this Agreement gives Stylist – and only Stylist – permission to access the Swan Method Training. By signing this Agreement, Stylist warrants that Stylist will not permit others to participate in the Swan Method Training
    2. Stylist is permitted to take pictures, videos, or other evidence of Stylist’s execution of the Swan Method for Company’s review; however, Stylist is not permitted to post, publish, or otherwise distribute any audio, video, photographic, written, or other medium presenting the Swan Method for any party other than Company unless and until receiving advance written approval from Company.
    3. If Stylist receives advance written approval from Company, Stylist agrees that it will explicitly and clearly credit both Company and Ms. Fazal in any social media or other post Stylist creates.
    4. This Agreement DOES NOT permit Stylist to use the Swan Method in Stylist’s salon. If Stylist desires to include the Swan Method in its salon for its usage, Stylist and Company shall enter into a separate agreement with the relevant terms and conditions for usage set forth therein. Before being considered for any such agreement, any Stylist who wants to request permission from Ms. Fazal to include the Swan Method in its salon for its usage must (1) receive a certificate of completion pursuant to this Agreement; (2) not commit breach of this Agreement in any way; and (3) schedule a meeting with Ms. Fazal to present Stylist’s ability with the Swan Method on a voluntary participant of Ms. Fazal’s choosing.
  3. Restrictive Covenants
    1. Covenants and Terms: Stylist recognizes that Stylist is gaining access to a method that is protected by a current, active patent owned solely by Ms. Fazal. Ms. Fazal and Company have a legitimate business interest in protecting the usage and distribution of the Swan Method, and this interest applies globally. As such, Stylist agrees to the following terms and restrictions as they apply anywhere in the world, whether by physical or online presence:
      1. Non-Disclosure. Stylist shall not divulge any part of the Swan Method to any third party without Company’s advance written approval. Further, Stylist shall not provide access to any content received pursuant to this Agreement to any third party. This Non-Disclosure provision restricts Stylist for three (3) years from the date of signing this Agreement.
      2. Non-Competition. Stylist and Company are in businesses in direct or inadvertent competition with each other. Company’s willingness to offer Stylist access to Swan Method Training comes from a place of goodwill and good faith in business dealings by Company. Stylist understands that its access to the Swan Method Training could give Stylist an unfair competitive advantage. Thus, Stylist agrees that Stylist shall not, directly or indirectly, as an individual, entity, or through any other individual or entity, provide the Swan Method in direct competition with Company. This Non-Competition provision restricts Stylist for three (3) years from the date of signing this Agreement.
      3. Non-Disparagement. Stylist agrees that Stylist will not make any disclosure, issue any false statement, or otherwise cause to be disclosed any information that is designed or intended (or might reasonably be anticipated) to defame, disparage, or otherwise negatively affect Ms. Fazal or the Company, its business, services, management, contractors, employees, or clients. This duty of Non-Disparagement applies to all documentable sources of communication. Stylist acknowledges and understands that this duty of Non-Disparagement will continue in perpetuity.
    2. Stylist hereby expressly acknowledges and agrees that the restrictions contained herein are reasonable with respect to their duration, scope, geographical region, and services subject to the restrictions; and that the restrictions are necessary for the adequate protection of Company and its legitimate business interests. Stylist acknowledges and agrees that these restrictions will not unreasonably prevent Stylist from working. The parties further agree that in the event a court determines that any provision or subsection in this Section III is unreasonable, void, or invalid for any reason whatsoever, then the limitation imposed may be modified and shall be as the court, or jury if applicable, determines to be fair and reasonable.
  4. Stylist Warrantie
    1. Stylist warrants that Stylist is entering into this Agreement voluntarily, and in doing so is not in violation of any other agreement, restriction, or regulation.
    2. Stylist agrees not to disclose to Company or induce Company to use any confidential or proprietary information belonging to any third party.
