All other rights are expressly reserved by Ramsey. The Ramsey membership materials are protected in whole and/or in part by state and federal copyright laws, trademark laws, and international treaty provisions.

Assignment: The limited rights granted to customer hereunder are not assignable or transferable absent express written authorization from Ramsey. Any unauthorized transfer or assignment shall be void.
Ordering Membership Materials: Anyone is welcome to purchase a membership and attend a class. The customer agrees to purchase one (1) membership per family unit enrolling in the class.
