Lindora Wellness Membership Agreement

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Download Lindora Wellness Membership Terms and Conditions

Lindora, LLC (“Lindora”) offers various wellness and weight loss membership plans as fully described on Exhibit A including applicable fees with automatic recurring monthly or annual payments (each, a “Membership”). By signing below, and providing my credit card authorization, I agree to purchase and subscribe for one of the following Memberships:

  • Wellness (as described on Exhibit A, including applicable fees)
  • Wellness Plus (as described on Exhibit A, including applicable fees)
  • Wellness Unlimited (as described on Exhibit A, including applicable fees)

I acknowledge that I must be 18 years of age or older to purchase any Membership, and I represent and warrant that I am at least 18 years of age on the date that I sign this agreement (or, if I am purchasing a Membership on behalf of an individual that is less than 18 years of age, I represent and warrant that I am the legal guardian of such person).

TERM OF MY MEMBERSHIP; AUTO-RENEWAL; CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION OF MY MEMBERSHIP

The initial term of my Membership is twelve months (the “Initial 12 Month Term”). Upon expiration of the Initial 12 Month Term, my Membership will automatically renew on a month-to-month basis, for a full month period (each, a “Renewal Term”).

I acknowledge and agree that I am liable for all Membership fees and any other charges incurred in connection with my Membership, including any applicable taxes, at the rates in effect when such fees and charges are incurred (“Membership Charges”) during the Initial 12 Month Term and during each Renewal Term.

After the Initial 12 Month Term, I may cancel my Membership at any time by providing 30 days advance written notice by visiting my Clinic and completing an End of Term Cancellation Request Form. Such cancellation will be effective upon expiration of the first full calendar month following the 30-day notice period.

At any time, Lindora may, for any reason in its sole discretion, immediately terminate this agreement and my Membership (“Lindora Termination”). If the Lindora Termination is not due to my breach, then Lindora will refund any Membership Charges paid in advance on a pro rata basis from the date of the Lindora Termination. I acknowledge and agree that there will be no refund for Membership Charges incurred prior to the date of such Lindora Termination.

PAYMENT, CREDIT CARD CHARGES AND AUTHORIZATIONS

I agree to pay the Membership Charges. I acknowledge and agree that Lindora may, from time to time, modify its Membership offerings, including without limitation the associated Membership Charges; provided, however, that Lindora will not increase my Membership Charges for the Initial 12 Month Term.

Unless Lindora subsequently agrees to another payment method, all of the Membership Charges owing by me will be paid via a valid and unexpired credit card that I provide to Lindora, and I authorize Lindora to process and charge such Membership Charges to that credit card (“Authorized Card”) without the need of any further authorization; provided however, if Lindora requires a separate credit card authorization, I shall execute and deliver the same back to Lindora upon its request.

I further understand and agree that the Authorized Card will be automatically charged monthly or annually as the case may be, including during any Renewal Term, for such Membership Charges until my Membership is cancelled and thereafter terminates in the manner set forth above.

If the Authorized Card is cancelled, is declined or expires during the Initial 12 Month Term or any Renewal Term, then I hereby agree to provide Lindora updated credit card information and authorize Lindora to proceed with billing the Membership Charges using the updated credit card account.  If Lindora is, for any reason, unable to process any Membership Charges to my credit card, and I do not rectify the issue within 5 business days, then my Membership will automatically be in default and I shall not be entitled to receive any further Membership benefits until such default is cured.  Additionally, Lindora reserves the right to terminate my membership if I do not cure the default.  Such termination will not relieve me, however, of my responsibility to pay all Membership Charges through the end of the Initial 12 Month Term or any Renewal Term, as the case may be.

Lindora reserves the right to collect on any Membership Charges owed to Lindora as related to the Terms & Conditions of this agreement and may use Collection Agencies and report any payment defaults to Credit Reporting Agencies.

MEDICAL CLEARANCE

I acknowledge and understand that I must have an annual physical examination by a duly licensed Lindora-trained provider and undergo annual laboratory tests as prescribed by a duly licensed Lindora-trained provider that will provide relevant clinical information related to my clinical fitness to receive Lindora wellness services.

NO REFUNDS

No refunds, credits, substitutions or exchanges will be made or provided for any food, protein, product, dietary supplement, vitamin or service purchased from Lindora under this or any other contract. No refunds will be made or provided for completed laboratory tests or physical examinations.


LIMITATIONS ON SERVICES

I acknowledge that Lindora reserves the right at any time to modify the services (or any part thereof). I acknowledge that any of the foregoing limitations on services will not be cause for a refund for services and that Lindora shall not be liable to me or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the services.

CHANGE OF TERMS & ADDITIONAL OR UPDATED TERMS

Some Lindora services may be subject to additional or updated posted guidelines, rules or terms of service (“Additional or Updated Terms”) and my use of such services will be conditioned on my agreement to the Additional or Updated Terms. If there is any conflict between these Terms of Service and the Additional or Updated Terms, the Additional or Updated Terms will prevail for that service, unless the Additional or Updated Terms expressly state that these Terms of Service prevail.  Changes and/or Additional or Updated Terms may be posted at www.lindora.com from time to time as appropriate, including, but not limited to, the Patient Code of Conduct, Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

WEIGHT LOSS

I understand that weight loss will vary from person to person, based on individual metabolism and adherence to the applicable weight loss program, and I understand that the Membership does not guarantee the loss of any particular amount of weight or guarantee any particular result.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Individual patient experiences with Lindora products & services may vary with respect to both effectiveness, and potential adverse reactions.  Lindora products & services have not been evaluated, recommended or endorsed by the FDA.  I acknowledge that I am assuming all risks related to consenting to treatment, utilization of services and consuming products provided by Lindora and that I may experience an adverse reaction as a result.

PRODUCT, SERVICES AND/OR BENEFIT EXPIRATION

I acknowledge and understand that my Membership includes specific products, services and benefits which may not be substituted or exchanged for cash value and which will expire at defined intervals if not used.  These specific products, services and benefits replenish at the beginning of the next defined Interval (either weekly or monthly) as long as my Membership is active and current.

ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION

I understand that, from time to time during my Membership, Lindora may request my acknowledgement and consent to terms, conditions and disclosures regarding (1) metabolic syndrome and other risks of weight loss programs, (2) access to and use of personal health information, and privacy implications of the same, including with respect to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996), (3) interactions with and side effects of vitamin boosters, supplements and other injectables used or applied during the course of the Membership, and (4) other matters for which my consent is requested or needed for my participation in the Membership.  Promptly and without delay, I will provide to and execute in favor of Lindora any such acknowledgements and consents that it reasonably requested of me.  I understand and agree that: (1) if I fail to so provide any such acknowledgement or consent, that Lindora will be entitled to terminate this agreement and my Membership; and (2) such termination will not relieve me of my responsibility to pay all Membership Charges through the end of (a) if such termination occurs during the Initial 12 Month Term, the Initial  12 Month Term, or (b) if such termination occurs during any Renewal Term, the end of the calendar month following such Renewal Term.

ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Lindora and I agree that arbitration administered by JAMS, Inc. in accordance with its JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) will be the sole and exclusive method for resolving any claim or dispute arising out of or relating to the rights and obligations of the parties under this agreement.

Lindora and I further agree that (i) one arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the JAMS Rules to conduct any such arbitration, (ii) all meetings of the parties and all hearings with respect to any such arbitration will take place in Orange County, California and (iii) all costs and expenses of the arbitration proceeding (such as filing fees, the arbitrator’s fees and hearing expenses) will be borne equally by the parties; provided, however, that the arbitrator will, in the award, allocate all such costs and expenses against the party who did not prevail in the arbitration.

The decision, judgment, ruling, finding, award or other determination of any arbitration under the JAMS Rules will be final, conclusive and binding on Lindora and I; provided, however, that nothing in this agreement will prohibit any party from instituting litigation to enforce any final decision, judgment, ruling, finding, award or other determination of the arbitration.

I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AND CLAIMS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE INSTEAD OF A COURT TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE AND/OR A JURY. I understand and agree that, by signing this agreement, I am expressly waiving any and all rights to a trial before a judge and/or a jury regarding any disputes and claims which I may in the future have that are subject to arbitration under this agreement.  I also understand and agree that the arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding on both Lindora and I, subject to review on the grounds set forth in the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”).

To the maximum extent permitted by law, all claims under this agreement must be brought in my individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or collective proceeding.  No claims may be brought or maintained on a class or collective basis either in court or in arbitration.  All such claims will be decided on an individual basis in arbitration pursuant to this agreement. I expressly waive any right to submit, initiate, or participate as a plaintiff, claimant or member in a class action or collective action, regardless of whether the action is filed in arbitration or in court.  Claims may not be joined or consolidated in arbitration with disputes brought by other individual(s), unless agreed to in writing by all parties.

Any issue concerning the validity of this class action or collective action waiver must be decided by a court and an arbitrator shall not have authority to consider the issue of the validity of this waiver.  If for any reason this class action or collective action waiver is found to be unenforceable, the class action or collective action claim may only be heard in court and may not be arbitrated. The arbitrator shall not have authority to hear or decide class or collective actions.  No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

This agreement, including Exhibit A and the other documents referenced in this agreement, constitutes the entire agreement between me and Lindora with respect to the subject matter hereof and it supersedes any prior agreements and understandings between me and Lindora regarding such subject matter.  This agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California; provided that the arbitration provision above shall be governed by governed by the FAA.  I agree that I shall bear my own fees and costs incurred in connection with this agreement, provided, however that the prevailing party in any action to enforce this agreement shall be entitled to reimbursement (from the other party) of the prevailing party’s costs and fees (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expert witness fees) incurred in connection with such action.  In the event that any of the provisions of this agreement are held by a court or arbitrator to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.  No amendment, modification or waiver of this agreement will be binding upon any particular party hereto (Lindora or me, as applicable) unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of such party, and no failure or delay in enforcing any right will be deemed a waiver.  Headings and captions are for convenience only and are not to be used in the interpretation of this agreement.  This agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of Lindora and me and our respective successors and assigns, provided, however that I understand agree that this agreement is personal to me and that I may not assign or delegate this agreement in whole or in part.  This agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument.  A party’s facsimile, electronically-scanned or electronic signature to this agreement shall be deemed an original for purposes of evidencing such party’s execution of this agreement.
