We reserve the right to change those requirements, and the method by which you may obtain the Software and Data, from time to time.
F. The Software may contain components that are subject to open-source terms. In particular the Software contains ZIP and OpenSSL. You may download and use this open source software under the conditions stated in the respective license terms.

4. Charges and Fees
As an ActiveLink subscriber, you may be charged an initial upfront fee for the Monitor as well as a recurring monthly fee for your ActiveLink subscription. You agree to pay, using a valid credit card (or other form of payment which Weight Watchers may accept from time to time), such fees, applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to use or access ActiveLink. We reserve the right to increase fees, or to institute new fees at any time, upon advance notice communicated to you through a posting on the ActiveLink Website or such other means as we may deem appropriate (including email or conventional mail).
After your payment for your initial billing period, Weight Watchers will automatically charge your credit card (or other account, if applicable) monthly on the day of the calendar month of the renewal date for your subscription if you are a Weight Watchers Online or Weight Watchers eTools subscriber, or up to 15 days prior to the start of each renewal period if you are a Monthly Pass subscriber, in each case unless you have cancelled your subscription before you are charged for the relevant renewal period. The renewal charge for your ActiveLink subscription will be the same as the prior period's charge, unless we notify you at the time of sign-up or prior to the beginning of the renewal period as described above, or if you were previously signed up for a discount rate for which you are no longer eligible. In the event Weight Watchers cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your ActiveLink subscription.
You acknowledge that we have the right to restrict access to, terminate and/or otherwise modify the ActiveLink experience for any reason, including but not limited to a breach of any provision of the Subscription Agreement or these Additional Terms. Your license to use the Software and Data shall terminate automatically upon termination of the Subscription Agreement, these Additional Terms or your subscription to ActiveLink. On termination, you must destroy all copies of the Software and Data.
6. Additional Cancellation Terms
You can cancel your subscription to ActiveLink at any time by visiting www.weightwatchers.com/cancel/activelink or by such other means as we may provide from time to time. You may cancel your subscription to ActiveLink without canceling your Subscription. However, if you cancel your Subscription, Weight Watchers may cancel your subscription to ActiveLink as well. Except for your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, health or other similar criteria, you agree that all fees and charges assessed by Weight Watchers in connection with ActiveLink are nonrefundable. Nonrefundable fees include the initial upfront fee for your purchase of the Monitor, which is nonrefundable after you have opened the Monitor’s exterior packaging, and the full ActiveLink subscription fee for any period for which you have prepaid (regardless of whether that period has elapsed or whether you logged onto the ActiveLink Website or used ActiveLink during that period).If your cancellation of your ActiveLink subscription is due to your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, health or other similar criteria prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, Weight Watchers will provide a refund for any unused portion of such period in accordance with the refund policy we have in effect at such time. If we cancel or terminate your ActiveLink subscription (as opposed to you canceling your subscription) prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, with the exception of any fixed upfront fee (such as the Monitor purchase fee), Weight Watchers will provide a refund for any unused portion of such period on a pro rata basis.
