Users will need to be able to write and read English, use a desktop or smartphone device, and be able to communicate via email or discussion platforms. If this minimum level of accessibility is not possible then a user will need help from an appropriate support person to participate.
5.6 The Services do not constitute medical advice or medical care. The Services provide general information on prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, including access to webinars, guides, recipes, blogs and content in a variety of other media formats. The Services do not in any way constitute general or medical advice, no matter how they are communicated, including verbally or written in any format, and by any team member. Relying on or taking or refraining from any action in light of the Services should only be done with the clearance and approval of your GP, Doctor or suitably qualified healthcare professional.
5.7 We will provide the Services until your subscription expires or is cancelled by you (see clauses 4.1 to 4.4) or by us (see clause 4.5).
5.9.2 Recipes/meal plans we make no guarantee about the accuracy of our recipes and their suitability for your dietary requirements. It is your responsibility to check ingredients, the accuracy of nutritional data and a recipe’s suitability for your own dietary requirements. We will not be held responsible for any nutritional deficiencies or allergies that might occur potentially as a result of our services.
5.9.3 Exercises any exercises shown, discussed, outlined or recommended are communicated as general information only. Any exercises that you carry out during our programmes are done so at your own risk. Our exercise plans and guides are generic, they do not take into account your current health, fitness or injury level. Information that we provide is generalised and is not intended to replace personalised professional advice. It is recommended that you seek the advice and approval of a suitably qualified medical professional prior to making changes. If you encounter any symptoms of pain during exercise, you are advised to stop the exercise activity and inform a healthcare professional, such as a doctor or physiotherapist immediately.
5.9.4 Relaxation and mindfulness techniques. It is your responsibility to ensure such activities are carried out in an environment that is safe to do so. For example, such activities should not be carried out whilst driving or operating machinery.

It is not our (the Supplier’s) responsibility to monitor this information or to make any recommendations based on this. It is your responsibility to act appropriately with the guidance or advice of a suitably qualified healthcare professional. Our programme is not a personalised medical programme, therefore it is not our responsibility to notify you if your blood pressure or blood glucose is out of range (as examples).
5.10 We make no guarantees about the efficacy of our services through any of our programmes. Our programmes are designed by qualified medical professionals, in order to help people improve blood glucose levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and reverse the processes that lead to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. We also aim to help people improve their nutrition, achieve weight loss, improve fitness and optimise their overall health. Results will and do vary from person to person, due to a complex interplay of personal and environmental factors linked to an individual person. We, therefore, make no guarantees about specific outcomes for individuals.

9. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
9.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process. A Force Majeure event does not qualify as foreseeable.
9.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Services.

10.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us.

10.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
10.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
10.6 The Customer shall indemnify the Supplier against any costs, liability, damages, loss, expenses, claims or proceedings arising from loss or damage (including that belonging to any third parties appointed by the Supplier) caused by any breach of these Conditions or any other liabilities arising out of the use of the Website or the Services by the Customer or its agents or employees.
