4. Charges and Fees
As a Monthly Pass subscriber, you are charged by your Service Provider a monthly (or other periodic) fee and initial fixed or registration fee, if applicable at the time, as set forth at Meeting locations or on the Website. 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 Monthly Pass. 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 or such other means as we may deem appropriate (including email or conventional mail).
After your payment for your initial billing period, we will automatically charge your credit card (or other account, if applicable) up to 15 days prior to the start of each renewal period, unless you have cancelled your subscription 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 subscription will automatically be renewed at our standard subscription rates and for our standard period (usually monthly). If you wish to purchase another available savings plan, you must notify us before you are charged for the next subscription period (usually about 15 days before the expiration of your current plan).
Each time you attend Meetings or log onto the Website 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 Monthly Pass subscription.
You agree to provide us with true, accurate and complete information as required by the sign-up process ("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. 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 subscription, and if applicable, your user account, and refuse any and all current or future use and/or access by you of the Meetings or the Website (or any portion thereof).
5. Cancellation of Subscription
You can cancel your subscription by contacting Customer Service at
or as otherwise set forth in the
Monthly Pass Cancellation Policy
, which can be found at www.weightwatchers.com/monthlypasscancellation or in your Meeting. We will attempt to process all cancellation requests promptly, provided that you send your request via the acceptable methods.
We may allow you to cancel your subscription with respect to the Meetings portion only or the Website portion only of your subscription. In that case, this Agreement (and the Website Terms and Conditions) would continue to apply to your access to the Meetings provided by your Service Provider or to the Website, to the extent that such access continues as part of your subscription.
Our fees, including the full monthly fee for any month (or portion thereof) elapsed (regardless of whether you attended Meetings or logged onto the Website during that month), are nonrefundable except as set forth below:
(1) If you subscribe to a prepaid savings plan and you decide to cancel during the period for which you have prepaid, we will refund you the difference (if any) if the amount you paid is greater than the amount you would have paid for the months elapsed if you were subject to our standard pricing in effect during such time and not subject to a savings plan.
(2) Depending on when we receive your notice of cancellation, it is possible that we may have already charged you for your next subscription period. In that case, we will refund you the full amount for that next subscription period as long as you return to us, in accordance with the Monthly Pass Cancellation Policy
, any material we send you that provides you with access to the Meetings for that next period (typically your next Monthly Pass card), and do not access Meetings or the Website during that next period.
(3) If you are canceling your subscription 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.
(4) If your subscription is cancelled due to your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, health or other similar criteria, or due to your death, disability, or relocation 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 13 below. Notwithstanding Section 13, you may always cancel using any of the methods, and for any of the reasons, set forth in the Monthly Pass Cancellation Policy
(5) If we terminate your subscription (as opposed to you canceling your subscription), 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.
(6) If you cancel your subscription and are entitled to a full refund, 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.
7. Availability of Monthly Pass
The availability and use of Monthly Pass may be limited based on demographic, geographic, health or other criteria we may establish from time to time. You understand and agree we may disallow you from subscribing to Monthly Pass or may terminate your subscription at any time based on these criteria. For example, pregnant women and individuals under the age of 18 may not subscribe. As a subscriber, you represent that you are a United States citizen or resident with a valid United States mailing address.
We may limit the availability of Monthly Pass to individuals currently attending Meetings in participating areas or participating locations. Please visit www.weightwatchers.com/monthlypasslocations
or ask in your Meeting room for details concerning these locations. While you may use your Monthly Pass to attend meetings in any participating areas, if you regularly attend meetings operated by a Service Provider other than the Service Provider listed on your Monthly Pass card, then in order to use your Monthly Pass following the end of your current billing period, you may be required instead to sign up for Monthly Pass with the Service Provider operating the Meetings you regularly attend. Fees may vary by Service Provider.
