19. Your Use of this Website and Our Paid Products
Unless otherwise specified, The Sugar Purge grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access, use and display our Website and any of our online Paid Products or offerings (such products or offerings, our “Paid Products”) that you subscribe to or pay for, for your personal, noncommercial use, provided that you comply fully with these Terms and Conditions.
You agree not to assign, transfer or sublicense your rights as a registered user of, or subscriber to, this Website and/or our Paid Products. You understand that only you may use your user account and password, and that your subscription to our Paid Products is valid only for your personal, noncommercial use and may not be shared with others. You agree to be financially responsible for all usage or activity of Paid Products subscribed to by you.
20. Charges and Fees for Paid Products
Certain portions, components, content and features of this Website are only available to individuals who purchase a subscription to one of our Paid Products. As a subscriber to one of our Paid 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, applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to access our Paid 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 or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including electronic mail or conventional mail).
In the case of any subscription products, 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 subscription before the relevant renewal period begins. Except in the case of a multiple-period prepayment 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 Paid 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 Paid Products. If you purchased a multiple- period prepayment plan or you were eligible for a discounted rate but are no long eligible for that rate, your subscription will automatically be renewed at our standard subscription rates and for our standard period (usually monthly) at the start of the renewal period. If you wish to purchase another prepayment plan for multiple periods and we are currently offering prepayment plans at such time, you must notify us prior to the termination of your current prepayment plan.
B. In addition to the fees and charges set forth above, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with connecting to our Website and our Paid 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 Paid Products.
C. For purposes of your use of our Paid Products including identification and billing, you agree to provide us with true, accurate and complete information as required by the subscription or sign up process to our Paid Products (“Subscription 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 Subscription 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 Subscription Data and any other information you provide to us to keep it accurate. Without limiting any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, 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 user account or subscription and refuse any and all current or future use by you of our Website (or any portion thereof) or any of our Paid Products. You are obligated to check the “Profile” feature of our Website to determine whether your Subscription Data is current and accurate, and, if not, to correct or update your Subscription Data including your billing information. You agree not to register or subscribe for more than one account, create an account on behalf of someone else, or create a false or misleading identity on this Website.
If your registration or subscription is revoked for any reason, you agree not to register or subscribe again with our Website 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 these Terms and Conditions 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 subscription until you update your Subscription Data. If your credit card expires, is canceled, is lost or is subject to use without your authorization, access the “Profile” feature of this Website to update your Subscription 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. Except for multiple- period prepayment plans, your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, health or other similar criteria, or if we terminate your subscription to one of our Paid Products prior to the end of the applicable period, you agree that all fees and charges assessed by us are nonrefundable. If your cancellation of your subscription to one of our Paid Products 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, with the exception of any fixed upfront fee, we will refund 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 subscription to one of our Paid Products (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, we will refund any unused portion of such period on a pro rata basis.
21. Cancellation of Subscription
You can cancel your subscription by contacting The Sugar Purge or by such other means as we may provide from time to time. 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 The Sugar Purge 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.
22. Availability of Paid Products
The availability and use of our Paid Products may be limited based on demographic, geographic, health or other criteria as we may establish from time to time. You understand and agree we may disallow you from subscribing to our Paid Products or may terminate your subscription to our Paid Products at any time based on these criteria. For example, pregnant women and individuals under the age of 18 may not subscribe to our Paid Products.
23. Unauthorized Distribution of Content
All content on our Website or contained within any Paid Product is intended to be consumed and used exclusively by visitors to our Website or by customers who have purchased our Paid Products, respectively.
In the event that you find and/or use any such content in a location other than our Website or in the corresponding Paid Product, we explicitly disclaim all representations and warranties as to the accuracy and/or fitness of such content. Furthermore, we shall not be liable for any unauthorized use, reproduction, or consumption of such content.
24. FTC Legal Disclaimer
Results may and will vary. Any testimonials given on the Website or in relation to The Sugar Purge do not represent typical results. Every testimonial on this website is real, and everybody has been through one of our free programs or Paid Products or has made use of one or more of our services. However, we feature these results to give you an idea of the kinds of results that can be achieved by the most motivated individuals. None of the testimonials should be considered average or typical.
Also, by using any of our Paid Products, you assume certain risks inherent to exercise and nutrition programs. Our Paid Products require dietary and lifestyle changes, and possibly a bit of exercise. You should not begin any program if you have a physical condition that makes exercise dangerous or if you have physical or psychological issues which make fat loss dangerous. If you are severely obese, you should consult with your doctor before beginning.
None of Jeremy, Louise, nor anyone at The Sugar Purge is a doctor, medical professional, or nutritionist, and the advice given by Jeremy, Louise, or by anyone associated with The Sugar Purge is not a substitute for medical advice. Please consult your physician before beginning any exercise or nutrition program. See below for more detail.
25. Generally Expected Results
Although all of our products are intended to be fully implemented, the typical purchaser of virtually all diet or general education products uses them in much the same way that they use a book. The vast majority of purchasers and users skim through the information and plans one time, then they never implement the program and never take any related action.
And even when purchasers and users implement our products completely, more often than not they do not report increases in fat loss, improvement of health conditions, or other positive results of any kind. Reports of specific fat loss, improvement of health conditions, gains in strength or energy, or positive results of any kind should therefore be understood to be the exception rather than the rule. In other words, purchasers and users who use our Paid Products can generally expect to see no increase in fat loss or muscle gain, no remediation of health conditions, and no positive results of any kind. It is entirely possible that you will gain fat, lose muscle, and experience other negative outcomes as a result of the information contained in our products.
26. Testimonials Disclaimer
Testimonials found on this Website or which are published by us in relation to our Paid Products are unverified results that have been sent to us by users of the one or more of our services, Paid Products, or free programs. Such testimonials may not reflect the typical experience of a purchaser, may not apply to the average person, and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results.
You should always perform due diligence and not take such results at face value. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions in typical results information supplied to us by manufacturers or other reputable third parties. If a product or service is new, you understand that it may not have been available for purchase long enough to provide an accurate results history. Again, it is possible that even with perfect use of our programs, you will not achieve the results described in testimonials. They are meant to be a showcase of the best results the program has produced, and should not be taken as the results a typical user will get.
27. Risks of Use
Information contained on the Website is not a substitute for direct, personal, and professional medical care and diagnosis. None of the diet plans, nutritional information, or exercises mentioned on the Website or by Jeremy or Louise Hendon should be performed or used without clearance from your doctor, physician, or health care provider. The information contained in our products and programs, as well as on the Website, is not intended to provide specific physical or mental health advice, to treat any specific medical condition, or to provide any specific advice whatsoever, for any individual or company – and none of such information should not be relied upon in that regard. Neither Jeremy nor anyone else at The Sugar Purge is a medical professional, and nothing on this Website should be misconstrued to mean otherwise.
For anybody in poor health or with pre-existing physical or mental health conditions, there may be risks associated with participating in any of our products or programs. Because such risks exist, you will not participate in our products or programs if you are in poor health or have a pre-existing mental or physical condition. If you choose to participate despite these risks, you do so of your own free will and accord, and you knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks associated with such dietary activities. These risks may also exist for those who are currently in good health right.
28. Important Billing Information
