THE SCULPTED VEGAN PROGRAM TERMS OF BUSINESS FOR THE SALE OF FITNESS AND NUTRITION PLANS WORLDWIDE
• These are the Terms of Business which govern our sales of fitness and nutrition plans (Plans).
• This constitutes a legal agreement between us and you. Please read it carefully.
• Please note that we do not provide medical advice. When following our Plans you are doing so at your own risk, and you must take full responsibility for the effects on your body that you may experience along the way. Any guidance we may provide is no substitute for professional medical or physiotherapy advice. Always ask your GP if in doubt.
• The Plans are not appropriate for you if you have any of the conditions or illnesses listed in clause 7.2 below, or if you are under 18.
1. INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO CONTACT US
1.1 Who we are. We are The Sculpted Vegan, a company which is part of Kim Constable Companies, registered in the Belfast, Northern Ireland.
1.2 How to contact us. You can contact us by email to [email protected] or by post to 148 High Street, Holywood, Co Down, BT18 4HS, Northern Ireland.
1.3 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
1.4 “Writing” includes emails. When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.
2. THE PLANS
2.1 Nature of the Plans. All the meals contained within all Plans are suggested and no set plans will be given, unless you have specifically paid for this service and therefore new recipes will not be created upon request.
2.2 Our ethos. The program has been created in line with our own unique formula. Our ethos is sustainability and enjoyment of food, which is tracked and calculated using your own unique macros and calories, to create a specific outcome, determined by you. Therefore, we do not pre-determine nutritional values for you. This is your responsibility, unless you have expressly paid for this service.
2.3 Allergies. If you notify us of an allergy or intolerance you will be provided with advice on how to remove or replace most ingredients included in the Plan. Please note, however, that you are responsible for all your own food and health choices pertaining to this.
2.4 The Protein Works products. If you choose to purchase any The Protein Works supplements, please note that is a separate agreement between you and The Protein Works, and we give no promises in respect of that product. Please see our Affiliate Disclosure (#18).
2.5 Physical training. The training routines contained within the Plans are also pre-set. However you can modify to accommodate injury or illness as you wish. You will receive details on the exact structure to follow; meaning the duration, repetition, range and amount of sets. This also includes guidance or correct lifting techniques through video links. Due to strength being such an individual consideration, weight on the resistance training section will never be specified and this is something you will have to discover through carrying out the exercises.
2.6 You must submit the correct information. Once your chosen Plan begins, you will be in complete control of the results. In order to achieve success with this program you need to stick to it 100%: this includes meal portions, meal timings, training, alcohol consumption and eating out.
2.7 Photos. The photos you provide will need to be taken in swimwear or equivalent so that body composition can be assessed.
2.8 Timing. Once you purchase the 12 Week Shred you have it for life. There is no deadline to complete it. The Plan is valid for 4 months from the initial order and needs to be completed within this timeframe to make claims on it. After this time you will still have access to the plan, but cannot make any claims associated with it.

6. PROVIDING CONTENT
6.2 We may ask your permission to publish the photos. We may contact you to ask permission to publish the photos.

7. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
7.1 When the contract for a purchase of a Plan comes in force. When you tick the box confirming that you accept these Terms of Business and then click the ‘PLACE ORDER’ button and made your payment, you are making an offer to purchase the Plan. A legally binding contract is formed when we have sent you a confirmation email that your order has been accepted.
7.2 We may refuse to sell a Plan for medical reasons. Our policy is that we will not provide fitness or nutrition plans if, by way of example, you are suffering an illness, injury or condition, such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, gastric band, heart, lung, liver, kidney or other organ disease, anorexia, bulimia. Our Plans are not appropriate for pregnant women, children under 18 or adults over 65.
7.3 You must be in good health. You confirm that you are in good physical condition and know of no medical or other reason why you should not engage in any form of exercise.
7.4 Our Plans are primarily aimed to customers in the UK. We reserve the right to reject any orders of Plans from outside the UK. If we do so, you will be given a full refund.
8. PROVIDING THE PLAN
8.1 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Plan to you. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 11.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Plan late or not supplying any part of it if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
8.2 Reasons we may suspend the supply of the Plan to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a Plan to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; or
(b) update the Plan to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
(c) make changes to the Plan as requested by you or notified by us to you.
8.3 Your rights if we suspend the supply of Plan. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Plan, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the provision of the Plan for longer than one week in any 90 day period we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Plan while it is suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a Plan if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than two weeks and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Plan in respect of the period after you end the contract.
8.4 We may also suspend supply of the Plan if you do not pay. If you do not pay when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within three days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of any elements of the Plan until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply. We will not suspend the Plan where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 13.8). We will not charge you for the Plan during the period for which it is suspended. As well as suspending the Plans we may also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 13.6).

Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says digital content, such as the Plan, must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality:
• if your digital content is faulty, you are entitled to a repair or a replacement
• if the fault cannot be fixed, or if it has not been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back
• if you can show the fault has damaged your device and we have not used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation
13. PRICE AND PAYMENT
13.1 Ways to pay. Goods must be paid for in advance. Plans may be paid for by a one off payment.
13.2 Where to find the price for the Plan. The fee for The 12 Week Shred is 1 payment of $197 (due today) or $97 if you purchased the plan during a promotion. Should you have any account questions you can email [email protected] at any time.
13.4 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Plan, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Plan in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
13.5 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Plans we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Plan’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Plan’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
13.6 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
13.7 We can charge an admin fee if you pay late. If a payment is cancelled, cannot be taken due to insufficient funds, or has been refused by Stripe, a reminder email will be sent to you requesting the outstanding payment. This can be paid from your original payment method, or by credit card. If the funds have not been received within five days of the due date, a $20 admin fee will be charged. At this stage, the Plan will go on hold until the balance is paid. If payment is not received within five working days, a further email will be sent advising you that if outstanding funds are not received we reserve the right to pass your details over to our chosen debt collection agency (currently www.allgravy.io) to enable us to recover the costs. This email will represent the final demand for payment. Additional charges may apply in this instance.
13.8 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
13.9 We are not liable for any charges that your bank may add to transactions.
13.10 You will be charged at the exchange rate available on the day of transaction.
14. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE
14.1 We do not provide medical advice. When following a fitness or nutrition plan you are doing so at your own risk, and you must take full responsibility for the effects on your body which you may experience along the way.
14.2 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms of Business, 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.
14.3 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 Plans; and for defective Plans under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
14.4 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
14.5 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Plans for domestic and private use. If you use the Plans for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

16.5 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 of Business, 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 Plans, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
16.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms of Business are governed by Northern Irish law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Plans in the Northern Irish courts.

If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Plans in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. The foregoing is subject to mandatory consumer protections which apply in your country, which may offer you additional rights.
16.7 Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to consider an alternative dispute resolution provider. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
