A. WellnessWins Program Description
The WellnessWins Program allows WW members to earn “Wins” for certain qualifying activities which can be redeemed for rewards (“Rewards”). There is no additional cost to participate.

B. WellnessWins Program Eligibility
All active members to Digital, Workshop + Digital, Coaching, or Total Access are eligible to participate in the WellnessWins Program. Pay as you go members are not eligible to participate as you must have access to the WW digital tools.
C. Earning Wins
The benefits that are available to you through the WellnessWins Program are based on the number of Wins that you earn. Wins are earned based on performing specific activities encouraged as part of the WW program, e.g.:
Food Tracking - track daily meals online (i.e., breakfast, lunch, dinner) and earn Wins for every tracked meal, limited to three meals per day.
Activity Tracking - track physical activity online (i.e., yoga, jogging, swimming, etc.) and earn Wins for every tracked physical activity, limited to one per day.

Workshop Attendance – attend a WW Workshop (excluding franchise locations) and earn Wins limited to once per week.
Challenge Achievement - earn extra Wins for participating in WW challenges throughout the year.
Syncing to an approved fitness device – synch with your approved fitness device and earn Wins.
Bonus Wins and additional activities may be provided from time to time
D. Redemption & Rewards
Rewards within the WellnessWins Program are determined by the number of Wins you accumulate in your account. You can redeem Wins for Rewards within the corresponding tier of Wins.
Rewards may differ based on where you are located and may include WW merchandise, merchandise fulfilled by third party partners, and services or experiences fulfilled by third party partners.
Rewards are subject to availability and may be changed without notice, but any substitutions will be of comparable value.
E. Wins Expiration
Earned Wins expire upon the effective date of cancellation, expiration or termination of your membership to the WW program. Wins will remain in your account for two weeks after cancellation, expiration or termination of your membership, but you will only be able to redeem any such Wins if you rejoin the WW program within the two-week period.
F. Returns and Exchanges of Rewards
Returns/Exchanges of Rewards are only allowed in the case of merchandise defects. In all other cases, returns/exchanges will not be accepted and Wins will not be refunded.
G. Termination/Modification of the WellnessWins Program

5. Charges and Fees
As a member, you are charged by your Service Provider a monthly (or other periodic) fee and initial fixed 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 membership rates 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.
You agree to provide us with true, accurate and complete information as required by the sign-up process (“Membership Data”), including your legal name, address, telephone number, email address and applicable billing information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date), and to allow us to share your Membership Data with third parties for the purpose of verifying the information you provide and billing your credit card or otherwise charging your account. You agree to maintain and promptly update the Membership Data and any other information you provide to us. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, if you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such is the case, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your membership, and if applicable, your user account, and refuse any and all current or future use and/or access by you of the Offerings, the Website and/or Apps (or any portion thereof).
6. Cancellation of Membership
You can cancel your membership by contacting Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org or as otherwise set forth in the Monthly Pass/Total Access Cancellation Policy, which can be found at http://www.weightwatchers.com/monthlypasscancellation or in your Workshop. 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: pregnancy, 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 14 below. Notwithstanding Section 14, you may always cancel using any of the methods, and for any of the reasons, set forth at http://www.weightwatchers.com/monthlypasscancellation. (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 6, 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.
