Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.
Persistent cookies: in contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable the website to "recognize" you on your return, remember your preferences, and tailor services to you.
We currently use, and may use in the future, the following types of cookies on this website:
We use session cookies to:
help us maintain security and verify your details while you use the website as you navigate from page to page, which enables you to avoid having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page.
We use persistent cookies to:
help us recognize you as a unique user when you return to our website so that you do not have to input your details multiple times as you move between our pages or services

X. The Lipo Lounge Body Contouring Class Policies
I understand, acknowledge, accept and agree that the use of products supplied by the Lipo Lounge must be employed with great care to prevent an accidental injury, especially when performing work. I understand that there is risk associated with the performance of these services which may include injury to an individual, and I also understand the need to practice great care during this workshop through the adherence to all safety protocols.
I acknowledge and understand that this workshop is a learning/training experience. I understand that I will be instructed in the theory of "non-invasive body contouring" services, in addition to the performance of technical drills on others, which may also include the application of gels. After I gain a basic understanding of the associated procedures, I will be given an opportunity to perform these services on classmates and/or models. I may also have services performed on myself on a voluntary basis, which will be accomplished under the direct supervision of the classroom instructor. I also understand that there is inherent risk involved with a student performing services on my person. I agree not to hold “The Lipo Lounge” its employees, representatives, assigns or my fellow students liable for any injuries incurred during the training period.
I further understand that it is my sole responsibility to perform these procedures under the scope of my own certification or licensure, in compliance with my city/state/county guidelines, and is not the responsibility of The Lipo Lounge to verify my particular scope of practice prior to my attending the class. Additionally, I agree and understand it is my responsibility to periodically check for any regulatory changes or requirements related to the performance of non-invasive body sculpting procedures.
The Lipo Lounge or its directors, officers, owners, employees, independent contractors, and suppliers, will under no circumstances be liable for any claims, suits, attachments, judgments, demands, damages, liabilities, losses, penalties, fines, settlements, expenses, including but not limited to court costs and reasonable attorney fees thereto; indirect, special, incidental, economic, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages arising out of the use or misuse of products or services sold by The Lipo Lounge. I as the trainee will hold harmless The Lipo Lounge for all such claims and actions in each case notwithstanding the actual or alleged negligence.
The Lipo Lounge, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to prohibit Trainee’s misuse, or any of Trainee’s affiliate’s use of its brand and logo. This includes all marketing materials, including posters, brochures, post cards, instruction manuals, etc.
I understand that I, the trainee, am prohibited from teaching, training all of The Lipo Lounge proprietary copyrighted workshop materials, including demonstrating any technical procedures or the sharing of information with any other person including but not limited to salon owners, co-workers, employees, contractors, friends or family members for a period of two years after the date of the workshop. Consequences of disregarding these policies can and will result in The Lipo Lounge employing any and all legal remedies allowed by law.
I understand that photographs/videos taken of myself during the workshop may be used for print, visual or electronic media including but not limited to: scientific presentations, websites, and for purposes of informing the medical profession or general public about this workshop. The aforementioned images may be included in marketing materials and may be published on behalf of The Lipo Lounge. I will not be identified by name in any published materials, and I reserve the right to revoke this authorization in writing at any time through a written revocation to The Lipo Lounge. I hereby release The Lipo Lounge and its agents from any and all claims and demands arising out of, or in conjunction with, the use of any such photographs.
I also understand that recording devices of ANY kind (audio, video, cell phones or still cameras) are prohibited, and therefore not allowed to be used during the workshop at any time. Violating this policy will result in immediate dismissal from the class, and a forfeiture of the registration fee(s).
I understand that the deposit paid by me to reserve a seat in the workshop is final and non-refundable. If I am unable to attend the workshop, the deposit may be transferred to another Body Contouring Workshop held by The Lipo Lounge at a different location. I must notify The Lipo Lounge of any postponements 7 days prior to the workshop. I also understand clearly that any balance due must be paid five days prior to the workshop.
