5. Charges and Fees
As a member, you are charged by your Service Provider a monthly (or other periodic) fee and joining or starter fee, if applicable at the time, as set forth at Workshop locations or on the Website or in the Apps. You agree to pay, using a valid credit card (or other form of payment which we may accept from time to time), such fees, applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to use or access your membership. 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 Website, in the Apps, or such other means as we may deem appropriate (including email or conventional mail). In addition to the fees we charge you, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with signing up for and using your membership, including without limitation all telephone access lines (including long-distance charges, when applicable), internet service provider fees, telephone and computer equipment, sales taxes and any other fees and charges necessary to access or use the Offerings, the Website and/or Apps. After your payment for your initial billing period, we will automatically charge your credit card (or other account, if applicable) at the start of each renewal period, unless you have cancelled your membership before you are charged for the relevant renewal period. The renewal charge 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 or a savings plan -- in which case your membership will automatically be renewed at our standard rate and for our standard period (usually monthly). If we offer you the choice to purchase another available savings plan, and you wish to purchase such savings plan, you must notify us before you are charged for the next membership period.
Each time you attend Workshops, participate in Coaching or log onto the Website and/or Apps you reaffirm your agreement that we may charge your credit card (or other form of payment, if applicable). In the event we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your membership.
6. Cancellation of Membership
You can cancel your membership by contacting Customer Service or as otherwise set forth in the Monthly Pass/Total Access Cancellation Policy, which can be found at https://www.weightwatchers.com/us/cancellation. We will attempt to process all cancellation requests promptly, provided that you send your request via the acceptable methods.
From time to time, we may have special, discounted multi-month recur bill commitment plans with predetermined early termination fees in lieu of our standard cancellation policy. If you subscribe to such a plan and you decide to cancel at any during the commitment plan period, you will be charged the pre-determined early termination fee as specified in the plan offer terms.
We may allow you to cancel your membership with respect to the Workshop portion, the Coaching portion and/or the Website and Apps portions of your membership. In that case, this Agreement (and the Website and Apps Terms and Conditions as applicable) would continue to apply to your access to the Workshops provided by your Service Provider, Coaching and/or to the Website and Apps, to the extent that such access continues as part of your membership.
Our fees, including the full monthly fee for any month (or portion thereof) elapsed (regardless of whether you attended Workshops, participated in Coaching or logged onto the Website or Apps during that month), and any sign-up or registration fee, are nonrefundable except as set forth below: (1) If you are canceling your membership within 5 days (or such other period as required by law) of your initial purchase, we will refund the full amount of such initial purchase. (2) If your membership is cancelled due to any of the following: medical reason, relocation (you move more than 15 miles from a Workshop location) or a Workshop closure and there is no other location within 5 miles of your new home or the closed Workshop) prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, then, with the exception of any fixed upfront fee we may have charged, we will refund any unused portion of such period. In addition, in certain states you may have additional rights with respect to cancellation, as set forth in Section 15 below. Notwithstanding Section 15, you may always cancel using any of the methods, and for any of the reasons, set forth at https://www.weightwatchers.com/us/cancellation. (3) If we terminate your membership (as opposed to you canceling your membership), other than due to your violation of this Agreement, prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, with the exception of any fixed upfront fee, we will refund any unused portion of such period on a pro rata basis. (4) If you cancel your membership and are entitled to any refund pursuant to this Section 7, we reserve the right to charge a fee to cover the cost to us of any administrative or other services you may have used prior to your cancellation, to the extent permitted by law.
8. Privacy and Security
9. Availability of Monthly Pass
The availability and use of your membership may be limited based on demographic, geographic, health or other criteria we may establish from time to time. You understand and agree we may disallow you from subscribing or may terminate your membership at any time based on these criteria. For example, individuals under the age of 18 may not subscribe. As a member, you represent that you are a United States citizen or resident with a valid United States mailing address. While you may use your membership to attend Workshops in any area, if you regularly attend Workshops operated by a Service Provider other than the Service Provider listed on your Monthly Pass, then in order to use your membership following the end of your current billing period, you may be required instead to sign up for a membership with the Service Provider operating the Workshops you regularly attend. Fees may vary by Service Provider.
You may not enroll in a WW membership if you are pregnant. As the WW program is not designed, nor tailored for pregnant members, if you become pregnant while an active member, we recommend that you cancel your membership until your Healthcare Provider (HCP) advises resuming post-pregnancy. However, you may discuss with your HCP whether continuing your WW membership is suitable for you. If so, you may maintain your membership at the pricing you signed up for and utilize our resources and support for healthy living during your pregnancy, subject to the following guidelines: 1) you should not follow the WW weight management program; and 2) you should be monitored by a HCP during your pregnancy and only follow your HCP’s advice with respect to your weight, nutrition, activity, mindset and sleep. By maintaining your membership during your pregnancy, you assume all risks of your use of this Website, the Apps, Coaching, and/or Workshops, and you agree to hold us harmless from any and all claims, loss or damage, liabilities and costs, including attorney’s fees, in connection with your use of this Website, the Apps, Coaching, and/or Workshops during your pregnancy.
