You must agree to this Services Agreement in order to access and/or register for and/or participate in any of HealthyWage's weight loss programs/challenges, including HealthyWage's incentive challenges, weight tracking, weight verification and social platforms, and HealthyWage's program of educational and motivational content.
PLEASE REVIEW THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE (IN SECTION XXI) CAREFULLY, INCLUDING THE LIMITATIONS OF YOUR RIGHTS CONTAINED THEREIN. ALL DISPUTES REGARDING THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN A HEALTHYWAGE PROGRAM(S) AND/OR YOUR USE OF THE HEALTHYWAGE WEBSITE MUST BE RESOLVED VIA ARBITRATION. BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE FORFEITING CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR BE PART OF A CLASS ACTION CASE.
We have a strict no refunds policy, and a strict rule that we do not cancel installment debt. If you choose an installment plan, you are taking out a loan from our finance department. The installment plan is just like a loan from any other creditor, and the loan must be repaid regardless of circumstances. One important part of the service we provide is a negative reinforcement that helps you avoid procrastinating and quitting your weight loss plan, which would be undermined if you could simply change your mind after registering. Moreover, our pricing is based on actuarial models that assume no refunds and no installment debt cancellations. Our business model depends on our firmness around this policy. Our customer service agents and supervisors are not authorized to make exceptions. The only exception is that the HealthyWage accounting department may suspend your challenge (but not your installment payments) and extend all of your challenge deadlines if you find out after you register for a challenge that you are pregnant, or if you require extended hospitalization (at least 10 days) for a medical condition, but only if the severity of the medical condition was not known to you until after you registered for the challenge. Please email any questions concerning this policy to email@example.com.
If you have questions, please contact us by calling us at (888) 636-3832 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

By using the HealthyWage Website or registering for or participating in any of our paid services, including the free-of-charge versions of our paid services, (the “Services”), you agree to this agreement (the "Services Agreement"), which we reserve the right to modify at any time, in our sole discretion.

The HealthyWage Website and Services provide weight management services and information (including an email support program) and are intended only to help users in their personal weight loss efforts. HealthyWage is not a health clinic, hospital or medical institution of any kind, and no one at HealthyWage (nor the Website) can give you medical advice or diagnosis. Nothing contained in this Website should be construed as such advice or diagnosis. This Website is intended for use only by healthy people. The Website, Content and Services are not intended for use by pregnant women, or by individuals with any type of health condition. Such individuals are specifically warned to seek professional medical advice prior to initiating any form of weight loss program.
Use of HealthyWage or participation in the Services does not create a doctor-patient relationship. Any and all Content or Services accessed through HealthyWage are for informational purposes only, and are not intended to cover all possible uses, directions, precautions, drug interactions, or adverse effects.
Content should not be used during a medical emergency or for the diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition. Please consult your doctor or other qualified health care provider if you have any questions about a medical condition; or before taking any drug, changing your diet, or commencing or discontinuing any course of treatment.
NEVER DISREGARD PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE OR DELAY SEEKING IT BECAUSE OF SOMETHING YOU HAVE READ ON THE HEALTHYWAGE WEBSITE!
IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911 OR YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY.
The Services are available only to individuals who specifically elect to subscribe to them and, where applicable, pay the related fees. The fees are sometimes referred to as "bets" -- if you make a "bet," there is no additional registration fee beyond the amount of the "bet." There are no hidden or additional registration fees. Aside from your "bet," there is a processing fee for a paper check of $7.00. If you choose Paypal, Paypal will charge a fee of 2.9% + .30 cents, except in special circumstances when HealthyWage pays the fee (e.g., Team Challenge Reimbursement Prize). As a buyer of one (or more) of our Services, you agree that:
A. You will pay, using a valid credit card (or other form of payment which we may accept from time to time), the sign-up fee (and/or, where applicable, the installment or other periodic charge), applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to access our Services. In the event we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your access to our Services and disqualify you from your challenge.
B. For purposes of your registration for and/or participation in any of the Services, you will provide us with the information that we request during and after the registration process, and the information you provide will be complete, accurate and truthful (the “Data”), including your legal name, address, telephone number, email address and billing information. We have your permission to share that data with third parties (e.g., our bank, the payment card companies) for the purpose of verifying it, and charging your credit card for the amounts you owe to HealthyWage. You agree to maintain and promptly update the Data and any other information you provide to us to keep it accurate, complete and truthful. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, if you provide any information that is not complete or accurate, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you have provided any information that is not complete or accurate, we reserve the right to suspend your account and prevent your use of the Website and/or any of our Services. You agree not to register for more than one account, create an account on behalf of someone else without his/her permission, or create a false or misleading identity on this Website. We have your permission to discuss your account details with whomever we deem necessary to process your account, including third-party weight verifiers, references, teammates, anyone who submits information to HealthyWage on your behalf, and anyone else we deem appropriate. We also have your permission to let your teammates know if your account is in arrears.
If your registration is revoked for any reason, you agree not to register again on the 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 this Services Agreement or the law.
C. You are solely responsible for keeping your password and account information confidential. You must immediately notify us if you suspect that someone has accessed your account without your permission or has obtained your password or account information. You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur on in your user account.
D. You agree that all fees and charges are nonrefundable and that installments are not cancellable, and that if your account is suspended (partially or wholly) due to your failure to comply with the terms set forth in this Agreement, you will not be eligible for any prizes or rewards or refunds.
E. If you choose to pay any fee in monthly installments, you agree and understand that you are taking an interest-free loan from HealthyWage and you promise to make all of your installment payments or otherwise clear your debt to HealthyWage. There are no installment cancellations. Your first installment processes when you enter your credit card information. Subsequent installments will be processed on the same card every 30 days until your balance is paid. If you fail to make any of your installment payments, we will give you at least 48 hours to cure to the issue. Thereafter, we may declare your account as "delinquent," which shall mean that your debt to HealthyWage will be accelerated (i.e., the entire remaining balance will be due immediately) and you will be disqualified from any challenges for which you are registered and you will not be eligible for any prizes or other payments from HealthyWage. To the extent permitted by law and by the rules of the payment card industry and related companies, you grant to HealthyWage irrevocable permission to use your payment method to cause remittance of the amounts owed to us. If you attempt to change or delete your payment method, we may collect payment from you via other means, including by engaging a collection agency and/or via legal proceedings.
F. You promise not to attempt to circumvent the no refund policy or the no installment cancellation policy. If you dispute any amounts that were properly charged to your payment card account or other payment method, you agree that HealthyWage may collect payment from you via other means, including by engaging a collection agency and/or via legal proceedings, and that you will compensate HealthyWage in full for any fees we are required to pay as a result of your disputes (e.g., credit card chargeback fees) plus all internal and external costs of collection and reasonable interest.
G. You promise and agree that, by default, all discounts, coupons, deals, prize bonuses, etc. ("specials"), may not be used in conjunction with one another. You may only use one special (of any kind) as part of any transaction or to purchase any challenge. For example, suppose you get a prize bonus (an amount added to your prize if you win) in the HealthyWager because a friend referred you, but you also have a coupon for 10% off your HealthyWager registration. You may only use one -- not both -- of those specials. The only exception is when this Agreement, the challenge rules or the rules for the particular special specifically say that one or more specials may be used in conjunction with other specials.
H. You understand that your winnings will be paid in HW Points, which are worth $1 each and which you may "cash out" at any time. Your HW Points will expire after one year of inactivity to the extent permitted by law.
There are various restrictions on the availability of our Services, including geographic, health, demographic restrictions. For example, pregnant women and unhealthy persons may not register for our Services. You agree that we may prevent (or terminate) your registration for our Services at any time based on these criteria.

We do not warrant, nor are we in any way responsible for, information, software, data, privacy policies, or other content that is outside of our control.
If you elect to become a registered user of the Website, which is voluntary, you agree that:
A. You will honor the posted rules of the website, including the Conduct Rules, below, which apply to your comments that may be visible to other users, including on the Website, on Facebook and Twitter, and via email. You promise to conduct yourself always according to the law, and also according to all our rules, and to refrain from using crude or otherwise inappropriate language and from harassing or bothering other users.
B. You will provide accurate and complete registration information when you register to use HealthyWage, and to provide updates as necessary to keep your registration information accurate. Without limiting any other provision of this Services 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 user account and refuse any and all current or future use of our Website (or any portion thereof). You agree not to assign, transfer or sub-license your rights as a registered user of this Website. You further agree not to register for more than one account, create an account on behalf of someone else, or create a false or misleading identity on this Website.
C. You are responsible for the security of your passwords and for any use of your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account.
D. Your use of HealthyWage and any Content and/or services must comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances, including any laws regarding the export of data or software. You must be at least 18 years old to use HealthyWage.
E. Each individual is limited to one weekly weigh-in prize every six months (when such prizes are offered).
F. You may be disqualified from any or all HealthyWage challenges (without a refund, without cancellation of future installment payments, if any, and without eligibility for any prizes) for any one of the following reasons:
G. HealthyWage Referees Have Final Say. HealthyWage will appoint at least one referee for each team challenge. You agree that HealthyWage referees act as fair and impartial referees for the team challenges. In the case of a team challenge, HealthyWage does not profit from disqualifying any team (because another team will necessarily win each prize; all prizes will be awarded). In fact, HealthyWage bears a significant cost in providing a referee.
Participants accept and agree that HealthyWage is each challenge's final referee and arbiter and that HealthyWage has sole and exclusive discretion in applying the Rules, making any necessary disqualifications and determining the winners. A team that has been disqualified is not eligible to win any of the cash prizes and is not entitled to any refund or cancellation of remaining installments, if any.
You covenant and agree that HealthyWage has sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether you have won the HealthyWager, Ten Percent Challenge, BMI Challenge, Team Challenge and/or any other challenge offered by HealthyWage, and that HealthyWage is under no obligation to demonstrate mathematically, or otherwise, how it determined winning status, or, in the case of team challenges, to prove or provide any accounting as to how winners were chosen.
H. Take Responsibility for Your Team. If you’re participating in a team challenge, we will work hard to help you find a great team, but you are ultimately responsible for your team. Even if HealthyWage’s team department crew members help you put together your team, you are ultimately responsible for your team’s commitment, success and rules abidance. You will not receive a refund, prizes, installment cancellations, consolations or a rank if anyone on your team breaks any rule or fails to achieve a winning weight.
I. HealthyWager Review. If you participate in the HealthyWager, you agree and understand that we are entitled to review your bet and that we may take a month or more to do so. We reserve the right to reject your bet in our discretion.
J. Weekly Reporting. Reporting your weight on the website each week is required for each challenge, but not strictly enforced. You will not be disqualified for forgetting to report your weight now and then, but if you consistently miss weighing in (for example, if you go the entire challenge without reporting your weight on the website) or if your failure to report your weight is cause for suspicion, then the referee may disqualify you (and your team, if you are in a team challenge).
K. Unhealthy Weight Loss at the End of Your Challenge. If HealthyWage learns that you engaged in starvation, excess exercise or other unhealthy (or dishonest) conduct to make weight at the end of your challenge, HealthyWage may disqualify you. Separately, if our referee notices excessive weight loss near the end of your challenge (or determines that there is reason to be suspicious), HealthyWage reserves the right to require a second verified weigh-out at our expense at one of our weigh-in partners in your area, up to three weeks after the end of the challenge, to verify that you have lost weight in a long-term, sustainable fashion. The referee may allow some change in your weight after this second weigh-out, but weight gain of more than 5% will alone be reason for disqualification.
HealthyWage enables you to share content with other users (and vice-versa), but you must follow the rules outlined here -- we have a zero tolerance policy with respect to objectionable Content Any and all Content posted to or emailed in connection with our web, mobile and tablet apps, whether posted at our request or spontaneously, and whether publicly or privately transmitted (collectively, the "Postings") are subject to these rules.

C. Harm minors in any way, or solicit or otherwise attempt to gain any information from a minor;

To that end, you agree not to solicit, or otherwise collect (or attempt to solicit or collect) personal data about the Website’s other users, including usernames and passwords.

We will do everything possible to contact the referrer prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our referral program without prior notice.
Additionally, referrers may NOT share their referral link directly on any of HealthyWage’s owned social media properties, including the HealthyWage Facebook page and any ads or sponsored content run by HealthyWage. Failure to comply with this rule may result in loss of earned boosts and removal from referral program.

You acknowledge that by providing you with the ability to distribute Postings, we are acting as a passive conduit for such distribution and we are not undertaking any obligation or liability relating to any Postings, nor do we endorse any such Postings. Although we reserve the right to remove, without notice, any Posting for any reason, we have no obligation to review Content prior to the Content’s posting or to delete Postings. We are not responsible for maintaining a copy of any material we remove from our Website, and we are not liable for any loss you incur in the event that Content you post or transmit to HealthyWage has been removed.
