3. Charges and Fees for Fee-Based Products
Certain portions, components, content and features of this Website and the Apps are only available to individuals who purchase a membership to one of our Fee-Based Products. Your access to the portions, components, content and features of the Website and Apps may vary depending upon which one of the Fee-Based Products you purchased. As a member to one of our Fee-Based Products, you agree as follows:
A. You agree to pay, using a valid credit card (or other form of payment which we may accept from time to time), the fixed and periodic charges and fees (including prepayment plan fees for multiple periods) set forth on this Website and in the Apps (such as the fixed Joining Sign Up Fee and the recurring Monthly Fee), applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to access our Fee-Based Products. We reserve the right to increase charges and fees, or to institute new charges or fees at any time, upon reasonable advance notice communicated to you through a posting on this Website, the Apps or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including electronic mail or conventional mail). We will automatically charge your credit card or other account at the start of the standard or multiple-period prepayment plan billing period and at the start of each renewal period, unless you terminate or cancel your membership before the relevant renewal period begins. Except in the case of a multiple-period prepayment plan, a recurring billing long term commitment plan or if you were eligible for a discounted rate but are no longer eligible for that rate, the renewal charge will be the same as the prior period's charge, unless we notify you in advance at the time of sign up or prior to the beginning of the renewal period as described above. Each time you use our Fee-Based Products 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 access to our Fee-Based Products. If you purchased a multiple- period prepayment plan, a recurring billing long term commitment plan or you were eligible for a discounted rate but are no long eligible for that rate, your membership will automatically be renewed at our standard membership rates and for our standard period (usually monthly) at the start of the renewal period.
B. In addition to the fees and charges set forth above, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with connecting to and using our Website, the Apps and our Fee-Based Products, 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 our Fee-Based Products.
If your registration or membership is revoked for any reason, you agree not to register or subscribe again with our Website or in the Apps using another user name or through any other means. If we have reason to suspect, in our sole discretion, that your account has previously been terminated, we reserve the right to terminate any new accounts you have registered without any notice to you, or to exercise any other remedies available to us under this Membership Agreement or by law.
D. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and user account information. You must notify us immediately in the event of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your user account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your or anyone else’s password or credit card information. In the event of a breach of security by you, you will remain liable for any unauthorized use of your membership until you update your Membership Data. If your credit card expires, is canceled, is lost or is subject to use without your authorization, access the Account Settings feature of this Website to update your Membership Data. You are entirely responsible for any and all activities which occur under your user account. You are responsible for paying any amounts billed to your credit card by a third party which were not authorized by you.
E. The fees, including the full monthly fee for any month (or portion thereof) elapsed (regardless of whether you participated in any of the Fee-Based Products or logged onto the Website or Apps during that month), and any Joining Fee, are non-refundable except as set forth below:
(1) If you are cancelling 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 a medical reason 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 the unused portion of such period. (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 (e.g. the sign-up fee), we will refund any unused portion of such period on a pro rata basis.
If you cancel your membership and are entitled to any refund as described in E(1) through (3) above, 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.
F. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, purchases made within the Apps downloaded from the Apple® iTunes store are not refundable and are subject to Apple's iTunes Terms of Service.

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. Wins are accrued for specific behaviors that have been identified as key drivers to success on the WW journey. Your progress in accumulating Wins can be viewed in the WW app.
B. WellnessWins Program Eligibility
All active members to Digital, Digital 360, Workshops + Digital, Personal Coaching + Digital, 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.
Weight Tracking - track your weight online or in the app and earn Wins limited to once per week (for Digital members and franchise Workshop members only.)
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
WW reserves the right at any point to change or terminate any and all aspects of the WellnessWins Program in whole or in part, including but not limited to, the activities to earn Wins, the manner in which Wins are redeemed, and the reward levels and Rewards.
H. Disclaimer of All Warranties
THE WELLNESSWINS PROGRAM, SERVICE AND REWARDS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE". THE WELLNESSWINS PROGRAM, SERVICE AND REWARDS ARE PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, INTEGRATION, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.
Wins have no cash value.
Wins have no purpose or use except in exchange for Rewards offered by WW via the WellnessWins Program.
Redemption offers may be time-limited or available only in limited quantities.
Member's Wins cannot be redeemed by, sold or otherwise transferred to, any other person.
Wins are not valid unless earned in strict compliance with the requirements of the WellnessWins Program, and members shall not attempt to earn Wins by any means (including without limitation, by using any script, bot or other automated means) that only simulates compliance with the applicable requirements.
If you have any problems, issues, complaints or concerns with any of the Rewards fulfilled by a third-party provider, you should address those problems, issues, complaints or concerns directly with such provider.
Rewards that are redeemed may be taxable, depending on the value of the item and the federal, state, and local tax laws applicable to member. Members are solely responsible for reporting such items on their tax returns and paying any associated tax liability.
Except for willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of WW, by participating in the WellnessWins Program, members release WW, its subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, third party providers and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, “Released Parties”) from any and all liability for any loss, harm, damages, cost or expense, including, without limitation, property damages, personal injury and/or death, arising out of or in any way connected to the WellnessWins Program or the use of any Rewards that are redeemed.
5. Cancellation of Membership
From time to time, we may have special, discounted recurring billing long term 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 time prior to the end of the commitment plan period, you will be charged the pre-determined early termination fee as specified in the plan offer terms.
You can cancel your membership online or by contacting Customer Service or by such other means as we may provide from time to time in our Cancellation Policy. We will attempt to process all cancellation requests within 72 hours after we receive your request. If you cancel near the end of your billing period and are inadvertently charged for the next period’s fee, contact Customer Service to have the charges reversed. If you use our Fee-Based Product during that next period, you will not be entitled to a refund. We reserve the right to collect fees, surcharges, or costs incurred before your cancellation takes effect.
6. Availability of Fee-Based Products
The availability and use of our Fee-Based Products (or any portion thereof) may be limited based on demographic, geographic, health or other criteria as we may establish from time to time.

For example, individuals under the age of 18 may not subscribe to our Fee-Based Products, or we may limit the membership to a certain Fee- Based Product only to individuals currently attending WW Workshops in participating areas or locations.
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 during your pregnancy 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.
