VIRTUAL CALISTHENICS (VICA):

TERMS AND CONDITIONS


INTRODUCTION & AGREEMENT

         Please read these Terms and Conditions (also referred to in this document as The Agreement, User Agreement, Terms, or other such references) between Virtual Calisthenics also known as VICA or VICA Studio (referred to as VICA, Our, Us, or We) and the user (referred to as You) carefully before downloading and using VICA products, sessions, information and publications (also referred to collectively as the program) from VICA (via www.vicastudio.com and/or vica.studio) or third-party suppliers. By downloading or using the program you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions fully outlined in this Agreement. This Agreement is a legal Agreement between you and VICA and it governs your use of the program made available to you by VICA. If you receive any part of the program not directly purchased by you (for example, as a gift), it is similarly understood that you have read and agreed to these Terms and Conditions which are available in full on www.vicastudio.com/terms, and have done so before download or use of the program. In any case, if you do not agree to the terms of the Agreement, do not download or use the program. Everyone who uses the program must first agree to the terms of The Agreement. The program is licensed not sold to you by VICA for usage strictly in compliance with these terms outlined in the Agreement. VICA grants you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to download, save and copy the program solely for your personal, non-commercial purposes strictly in compliance with the terms of the Agreement. Carefully review the Terms and Conditions and consult with your physician or health care professional for any issues you have prior to usage, and tell them about the particular sessions you are going to use.
         Virtual Calisthenics, or VICA for short, primarily offers guided mindfulness meditation and hypnosis audio recordings, for listening to on mobile devices, at the discretion of the User. VICA sessions are used for simple relaxation, behaviour modification, self improvement, habit correction, positive thinking, self-hypnosis, change lifestyle, and learning techniques (as per FDA policy Sec. 335.300 Hypnotherapy Devices) (FDA, 1995). VICA's audio sessions are special because we utilize a synthesis of the most effective elements of mindfulness meditation, modern hypnosis, imagery virtualization, mental optimization, music and VICASync binaural beats. Mindfulness meditation and hypnosis work by developing the pathway between the conscious and subconscious mind. Accessing the subconscious mind allows the listener to relax deeply and be open to positive suggestions so you can in order to modify behaviours, make self improvements, facilitate learning, and think about yourself positively. VICA sessions use techniques for self-hypnosis, meaning you are in control for the whole process. VICA Sessions are mind-body medicine as they utilize mindfulness meditation and hypnosis (as per FDA non-therapeutic industry guidance) (FDA, 2006). Mind body complementary medicine practices include yoga, meditation, massage therapy, acupuncture, relaxation techniques, deep breathing, guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, tai chi, qi gong, hypnosis, and movement therapies (NCCIH, 2008). VICA sessions may be used alone or as complementary to medical treatment, but are not used as alternative to any medical or psychiatric treatments. VICA is used for entertainment purposes only. Results will vary. Integrative health refers to incorporating complementary medicine into mainstream health care (NCCIH, 2008). 
         The terms and conditions will be updated at any time, without any warning to users. The terms and conditions are provided at time of purchase or online at www.vicastudio.com/terms. You may not transfer your license of usage to another person. If another person wants to use your VICA sessions they must first accept the terms and conditions. If you are giving VICA sessions to somebody else, they must also accept the terms and conditions before using. Your license is for your own personal usage. All risks associated with using VICA sessions are conducted at the risk of the user.

PRACTICAL USAGE

Responsibility
         If you have previous negative experience with hypnosis, mindfulness or mind control you should not use VICA sessions without close guidance from your health care professional. You are responsible solely for all behaviours and acts before, during and after using VICA sessions. You must agree to be safe in all behaviours during VICA session usage. Participation in VICA sessions is done at the user's sole discretion and risk of consequences. Do not follow any suggestions contained in VICA sessions or the program that would be inappropriate/dangerous for you. VICA is not responsible for any event caused from the use or misuse of sessions or information. All risks associated with participating in activities or themes discussed in sessions are the responsibility of the user.

Safety/Alertness
         You must agree to be safe in all behaviours surrounding VICA session usage. You may not use VICA sessions if doing so would be dangerous to yourself or other people.  You should have nothing dangerous happening around you, while you relax during using VICA sessions. Have enough time to relax within. You should not use VICA sessions while standing, or in any way that you may fall down. Using VICA Programs may cause drowsiness. When you use VICA, please note that you are, for the most part, unavailable to the outside world, and there is a possibility you may even fall asleep, and that you may sleep or keep relaxing past the end of the session. If you feel you may fall asleep, you may want to set an alarm or ask someone you trust to remind you of when to wake up. 
         Make sure nobody or nothing needs your attention, and be sure that you, your belongings, dwellings, animals, and anyone you are with will be safe and secure for the duration of the session, and possibly longer.  Do not use VICA sessions while you are watching over someone, an animal, or something. You do not want to use VICA sessions if you would fall asleep on someone else, animals, or knock objects that would be unsafe. 
         If something does need your attention during your session, you can awaken when you're alerted. When you open your eyes, and move your body, you will awaken just like when waking up in the morning. Give yourself enough time to use your session and enough time afterwards to check you are fully alert before proceeding with your day, and before doing anything requiring attention. After your session you should get up and move around to fully awaken. You should not do activities that could be dangerous for at least one hour after using VICA sessions, in order to give yourself ample time to wake up fully. You should not do anything that would be dangerous without fully returning to an awake and aware state of consciousness. 
You should not use anchors or inductions at times that it would not be safe/appropriate. You may not consciously or subconsciously trigger yourself to reenter a relaxed state at times that it would not be safe/appropriate to do so.

Comfort
         Personal results with usage will vary. Your body temperature may fluctuate during VICA session usage as you relax, so you can use a blanket to stay warm. Listen to VICA sessions at a low comfortable level. You should not listen at high volumes for extended times as this may be damaging to your ears and hearing.

Spirituality
         VICA sessions have been designed to be compatible with all cultures and religions. However, if mindfulness and hypnosis are against your culture or religious belief system you should not use VICA sessions.

Research/Promise of Effects
         There is no guarantee for activities meditated upon, whether in success, safety or legality.  Performance outcomes cannot be guaranteed. No effects or claims of usage are made. The effects of VICA sessions are for entertainment purposes only. If you disagree with any of the suggestions used, do not follow them. What does this mean?
         VICA sessions have not been researched using a double-blind placebo controlled trial (the highest scientific validity of effectiveness). There have however been general hypnosis double-blind trials showing clinical effectiveness for a variety of contexts (www.vica.studio/research). Studies on mindfulness, clinical hypnosis, and hypnotherapy (i.e. under the treatment of a health care professional) do not directly support the benefits of audio hypnosis or mindfulness meditations, however may indicate potential effects possible. However, VICA sessions usage is not the same as having another person conduct hypnosis upon you (i.e. hypnotherapy or clinical hypnosis), and thus all research findings do not directly apply to using VICA sessions. VICA sessions do not reverse or remediate the physical effects of exercise, or do not directly improve physical condition. VICA sessions do not have direct physical, emotional of psychological effects. The intentions for VICA sessions are stated up front as much as possible wherever appropriate. Meditation has been recognized as safe for healthy people (NCCIH, 2014).

Consent
         Consent must be voluntarily given by a person of legal age, who has been adequately informed about usage, having enough information to weigh the risks and benefits of beginning to use the program. If you are unable to give informed consent for any reason, you may not use the VICA program at all. It is the User's right to decide whether to participate in using VICA sessions. By agreeing to the terms and conditions of using VICA sessions you understand the potential benefits and risks associated with usage of VICA sessions, and have self determined your choice for usage. Your personal VICA session usage may be identified inadvertently by an organization leader/purchaser by identifying that your organization's users have made quotient downloads (although your identity is not collected or given in this instance without your consent). If you are providing VICA sessions for employees, students, or other clients/individuals, or it has been provided to you, usage of the program is not mandatory. You should not listen to VICA sessions in a way that other people can overhear and be affected by them secondhand.

EXPERIENTIAL USAGE

         A transcendent state of consciousness is often experienced in meditation. People experience this feeling differently. People often report feeling very relaxed as if in a sleep like state but with some awareness. Other people report feeling like there is a lot of space inside of their body, or that they are floating around themselves.
         VICA sessions may induce out of body experience/a transcendental state of consciousness. VICA sessions my utilize past, present or future personal timeline regression. Users may experience pychokinesis or extra sensory perception. If you are sensitive to out of body experiences or experience anxiety from altered states of consciousness, you should not use VICA sessions. If you are prone to anxiety, start slow, and know you are free to pause your sessions at any time. If you experience anxiety, immediately discontinue usage of VICA sessions. When told to "let everything go", "let it all go", or similar statements, do not let go of anything you are physically holding onto. Here you let go of tensions inside of your muscles. When told to let go of your body, mind and emotions, do not detach from yourself or your life in unhealthy ways. Here you let go of attention during the meditation of your body, mind and emotions, similar to when in a dream. When told that nothing needs your attention, do not leave anything that would be dangerous not to attend. Here you let go of things on your conscious mind and clear your mind.  Typically, VICA sessions do not use post-hypnotic anchors and suggestions for behaviours, unless performing those behaviours are clearly part of the intentions of the session. The focus of sessions is on a state of wellness and optimization. Techniques performed in sessions may not be accurate to descriptions provided. Results may vary. You may experience extra sensory perceptions with VICA usage. If you are sensitive to sensing spirits, consult with your health care professional prior to usage.
         You may use a conditioned response anchor only during times when it is safe and healthy to do so.
