When you purchase a Subscription or a Product (each, a “Transaction”), we may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, such as your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and your address(es) for billing and delivery (such information, “Payment Information”). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information.

Physical Activities and Dietary Guidance
It's important to us that users stay healthy while achieving their fitness goals. Please be responsible and use your best judgment and common sense. We provide our Services for information purposes only, and can't be held liable if you get injured or something goes wrong. In particular, while most of the content posted by the other users in our community is helpful, it is coming from strangers on the Internet and should never trump good judgment or actual medical advice.
Nutritionista cares about your safety. You should consult with your healthcare provider(s) and consider the associated risks before using our Services in connection with any physical activity, wellness or fitness program, or any dietary program or guidance. By using our Services, you agree, represent and warrant that you have received consent from your physician to participate in wellness and fitness programs, workouts, exercises or any of the related activities made available to you in connection with the Services, and that you have consulted with your physician before making any dietary changes based upon information available through the Services. Everyone’s condition and abilities are different, and participating in the activities promoted by our Services is at your own risk. If you choose to participate in these activities, you do so of your own free will and accord, knowingly and voluntarily assuming all risks associated with such activities. Activities promoted by the Services may pose risks even to those who are currently in good health.
You understand and agree that we will not carry out and are not responsible for any physical inspection, supervision, preparation, execution or conduct of any activities related to or accessed or discovered via the Services (e.g., featured, official or community created challenges; routes; friendly competitions or similar activities; any single or group training activities; any Third-Party Activities or other events or activities that utilize our Services). Maps, directions and other GPS or navigation data, including data relating to your current location, may be unavailable, inaccurate or incomplete. We encourage you to always put safety first, follow applicable traffic regulations, do not change settings on your device while in motion or in unsafe areas and always be vigilant and take stock of your surroundings when exercising.
You expressly agree that your athletic activities, which may generate the User-Generated Content you post or seek to post on or via the Services (e.g., running, walking, cycling, hiking) and certain Third-Party Activities carry certain inherent and significant risks of property damage, bodily injury, or death and that you voluntarily assume all known and unknown risks associated with these activities, even if caused in whole or part by the action, inaction, or negligence of Nutritionista or by the action, inaction, or negligence of others.
Except as otherwise set out in these Terms, and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we are not responsible or liable, either directly or indirectly, for any injuries or damages sustained from your physical activities or your use of, or inability to use, any Services or features of the Services, including any Content or activities you access or learn about through our Services (e.g., a Third-Party Activity such as a yoga class), even if caused in whole or part by the action, inaction or negligence of Nutritionista or others. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you expressly agree we do not assume responsibility for any Third-Party Activity or any other race, contest, class, athletic activity or event that utilizes or is promoted by or accessed via the Services.
Disclaimer Regarding Accuracy and Reliance on Content
We make no representations or warranties as to the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of any Content available through the Services, and we make no commitment to update such Content.
In addition, User-Generated Content, including advice, statements, or other information, including, without limitation, food, nutrition, dietary guidance, exercise or training guidance, athletic activities, and exercise database entries, are not produced by Nutritionista, and should not be relied on without independent verification. User-Generated Content, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the user from whom such User-Generated Content originated. All information is provided “as is” without any representation, warranty or condition as to its accuracy or reliability.
In particular, Nutritionista’s food database (“Food Database”) contains a combination of nutritional information entered by Nutritionista and Nutritionista members. Any Nutritionista users can contribute to or edit nutritional information in the Food Database. Please be advised that nutritional information in the Food Database has not been reviewed by persons with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate, or reliable information. Nutritionista does not (i) guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any nutritional information or ingredients in the Food Database; or (ii) adopt, endorse or accept responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any such nutritional information. To the extent permitted by applicable law, under no circumstances will Nutritionista be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance on nutritional information. You are solely responsible for ensuring any nutritional information in the Food Database is accurate, complete and useful.
Not all users who may identify themselves as professional trainers or licensed dieticians are licensed in all applicable jurisdictions. Nutritionista has no and assumes no obligation to verify that users who identify themselves as licensed trainers or dieticians are actually licensed. If you hold yourself out as a licensed trainer or dietician, you represent and warrant that you are actually licensed for the services you provide in the jurisdiction in which you offer your services. Users should also bear in mind that even if a user is a licensed trainer in one jurisdiction that does not mean the trainer user is licensed in the jurisdiction from which other users access the trainer user’s advice. Accordingly, relying on any advice provided by other users is at your own risk. To the extent permitted by applicable law, under no circumstances will Nutritionista be responsible or liable for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance on information or advice provided by any user of our Services.

We aim to provide useful general information for our community, not professional medical advice. The Services are not medical devices, and the data provided by them is not intended to be utilized for medical purposes or to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, ailment or injury. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you expressly agree we are not providing medical advice via the Services. All Content provided through the Services, whether provided by us or by other users or third parties (even if they are claiming to be a doctor!) is not intended to be and should not be used in place of (a) the advice of your physician or other medical professionals, (b) a visit, call or consultation with your physician or other medical professionals, or © information contained on or in any product packaging or label. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we are not responsible for any health problems that may result from training programs, dietary recommendations, consultations, products, or events you learn about through the Services. Should you have any health related questions, please call or see your physician or other healthcare provider promptly. If you have an emergency, call your physician or your local emergency services immediately.
Your use of the Services does not constitute or create a doctor-patient, therapist-patient or other healthcare professional relationship between Nutritionista and you.
Success Stories Not Typical
Success stories posted by users or Nutritionista on our Services may not represent typical or even accurate results obtained from any particular fitness activity or diet. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Nutritionista has no and assumes no obligation or liability associated with the accuracy, reliability or effectiveness of any fitness activity or dietary recommendation contained in any user success stories.
The Services are intended to provide you with information to encourage you to support your wellness and fitness activities. Some of the Services are aimed at tracking your physical movements and sleep activity (“Activity Tracking Services”). These Activity Tracking Services rely on sensors and/or GPS functionality that track your movement or body at rest. The data and information provided by the Activity Tracking Services are intended to be a representation of your activity, but may not be completely accurate, including with respect to step, sleep, speed, distance, or calorie data. By using Activity Tracking Services, you acknowledge and agree that Nutritionista is not responsible or liable for any inaccuracy in such data.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
In no event will Nutritionista’s total liability arising out of or in connection with these terms or from the use of or inability to use the Services, Products or Content exceed the amounts you have paid to Nutritionista for use of the Services, Products or Content or fifty dollars ($50), if you have not had any payment obligations to Nutritionista, as applicable. The exclusion and limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Nutritionista and you.

Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Nutritionista agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services, Products or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Nutritionista with written notice of your desire to do so by email at firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Nutritionista with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Nutritionista with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Nutritionista with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Nutritionista are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Nutritionista otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration form and a separate form for Demand for Arbitration for California residents.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
If you commence arbitration against us, you are required to provide a second Notice to the Company at the Arbitration Notice Address within seven (7) days of arbitration commencement. The Rules and AAA forms are available online at http://www.adr.org. Unless your Demand is equal to or greater than $1,000 or was filed in bad faith, in which case you are solely responsible for the payment of the filing fee, if you are required to pay a filing fee to commence an arbitration against us, then we will promptly reimburse you for your confirmed payment of the filing fee upon our receipt of the second Notice at the Arbitration Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration along with a receipt evidencing payment of the filing fee.
The arbitration shall be conducted exclusively in English. You and the Company agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the arbitration process and reduce the costs and burdens on the parties: (i) the arbitration will be conducted online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (ii) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (iii) any judgment on the award the arbitrator renders may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Nutritionista changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to email@example.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Nutritionista’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Nutritionista in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Nutritionista and you regarding the Services, Products and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Nutritionista and you regarding the Services, Products and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the “Arbitration” section above or by court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you timely opt out of arbitration by sending us an Arbitration Opt-out Notice in accordance with the terms set forth above), that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Nutritionista’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Nutritionista may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Nutritionista under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) by Nutritionista via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Nutritionista’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Nutritionista. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services or Products, please contact Nutritionista at firstname.lastname@example.org.
