2.1 General. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and during the term of this Agreement, Profile grants you a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to access and use the Service in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, a specific Plan, and any Documentation made available to you by Profile. The Service has been designed by Profile with the goal of assisting people with weight loss and weight management. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT INDIVIDUAL RESULTS VARY. You also understand and agree that Profile may, but is not obligated to, modify the Service, Plan, and the Documentation for a variety of reasons, including for consistency with the most recent weight loss and weight management research. Your specific Weight Loss Goal will be modified to a lower agreed upon weight loss percentage if your weight loss would drive your weight below a healthy weight range.
2.2 Profile Promise. Subject to the below terms and conditions, if you follow your Plan, you will lose at least fifteen percent (15%) of your body weight or a lesser agreed upon goal within one year or Profile will extend your Profile Membership for an additional twelve (12) months at no charge to you (the “Profile Promise”). The Profile Promise is subject to the following terms and conditions: (1) you must attend a minimum of 20 Appointments; (2) you must attend your first six Appointments in six consecutive weeks; (3) you must attend your next 14 Appointments no more than 21 days from your previous Appointment; (4) you must weigh in on your Smart Body Scale provided by Profile at least twice per month; (5) you must purchase Profile Products according to the Plan; and (6) you must comply with this Agreement and all dietary and activity recommendations provided to you by Profile and your Profile Coach(es). The Profile Promise is null and void if: (a) you lose fifteen percent (15%) of your body weight or the lesser agreed upon amount of weight during the first year but then regain weight; (b) it is not appropriate or healthy for you to lose fifteen percent (15%) of your body weight or the lesser agreed upon goal (your body weight must be in the healthy BMI range); or (c) you have or develop a health or medical condition that prevents you from losing fifteen percent (15%) of your body weight or the lesser goal, or the health or medical condition makes it inappropriate for you to do so. You will be responsible for the cost of all Profile Products associated with following your Plan even if you have paid for a Membership that includes Profile Products (i.e., bundled Memberships); Profile will not pay the cost of your Profile Products in any event. Once you’ve lost 15% of your body weight or the lessor agreed upon goal, the Promise is fulfilled. You must put forth a good faith effort to fulfill the Profile Promise.
2.3 Profile Coaches. As part of the Plan and Service, Profile will provide you with access to Profile Coaches, who will consult with you virtually or in person. You agree to work with your Profile Coaches in good faith solely with respect to the Service, and you will not seek consultation from your Profile Coaches for any other purpose. Unless instructed otherwise by Profile, you agree to conduct your sessions with Profile Coaches alone, with no observers, and you will not record any such session in any way.
2.4 Profile Precise. Profile Precise is a genetic test that uses a cheek swab to collect a DNA sample to determine nutrition-related markers. You agree Profile may use the results of the test to provide you with general nutritional advice that may be used with your Plan. You agree and give consent to Profile, its third party contractors, successors and assignees to perform genetic services on the DNA extracted from the saliva sample you provide. You confirm that you are above the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside and that you have voluntarily given your informed consent to have your saliva samples tested for nutrition-related genetic markers. Your use of the Profile Precise is voluntary.
The physical risks of the saliva test are minimal and related to inserting the swab sample collection tool into your mouth and wiping the inside of your check. Waiting for and receiving your results may present certain psychological risks or create anxiety for you. You may have emotional reactions to learning the results of the test. You may experience anxiety about sharing the results of your test with other people, including your family, who may have similar genetic markers. Therefore, you may want to meet with or discuss the Profile Precise test with your healthcare provider before deciding to participate.
There are possible economic risks of genetic testing that may affect your ability to obtain life, long-term care, or disability insurance. Your insurer may request information about the test results or ask if you have had a genetic test.
You agree and understand:
- the nature and purpose of the Profile Precise test
- the effectiveness and limitations of the test
- the possible consequences of submitting the DNA sample for testing
- the risks and benefits of the Profile Precise test and its results
- you may experience anxiety from going through the testing process and/or receiving the results.
- to consult with your healthcare provider if you have any questions about the test and/or legal advisor about any insurance or other legal implications of taking the test
- the possible uses and disclosures of your de-identified data by Profile, including for future commercial or research purposes, or other uses determined exclusively by Profile
- that genetic testing is optional and is not required to participate in the Service
- you have been able to ask your Profile representative about all of your questions regarding this test and your questions were satisfactorily answered.
Once you submit your saliva sample, it is shipped to Profile’s third party contract laboratory, where the sample is irreversibly processed and it cannot be returned to you. The test results are reported to and analyzed by Profile. Any genetic information taken from your saliva sample remains your information but is subject to the rights that are expressed in this Agreement and Profile’s Privacy Statement. Profile’s third-party contractor laboratory is measuring the copy number variation of genetic markers associated with the production of the enzyme amylase by your body. Profile interprets this information to provide general nutrition advice related to macronutrient intake. Future genetic research may change how your DNA is interpreted by Profile. Profile Precise is currently not available in Maryland, New Jersey, and New York. In addition, Profile and/or select Franchisees may not, in its or their sole discretion, offer Profile Precise at your Site or may impose additional requirements for you to obtain Profile Precise. Profile does not guaranty that Profile Precise is available at every Site.
2.5 Your Health. PROFILE AND ITS FRANCHISEES ARE NOT MEDICAL ORGANIZATIONS. YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER THE SERVICE OR THE DOCUMENTATION AS MEDICAL ADVICE OF ANY KIND, AND THE SERVICE IS NOT INTENDED TO TREAT ANY ILLNESS, DISEASE, OR ADVERSE MEDICAL CONDITION. Profile and its Franchisees are not licensed medical care providers, and we have no expertise in diagnosing, examining, or treating medical conditions of any kind, or in determining the effect of any specific exercise on a medical condition. You are urged and advised to seek the advice of a physician before beginning your use of the Service, and to get periodic medical check-ups as recommended by your primary care physician. The information and reports generated by Profile or its Franchisees should not be interpreted as a substitute for physician consultation, evaluation, or treatment. By using the Service, you represent that you are healthy enough to begin a weight loss regimen that includes dieting and exercise. If you are currently under the care of a health care professional or are living with a chronic health care condition, you represent that you have obtained the express approval from a health care professional to receive the Service before beginning. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have been told by Profile staff or any Profile Coach.
2.6 Profile Precise Testing Limitations. Profile Precise is informational and educational use only. No medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment is provided with regard to any Profile Service, including Profile Precise, and is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The genetic information reported has not been clinically validated. Profile’s laboratory may not be able to process your sample and the analysis may result in errors or inaccurate results. The laboratory may not be able to process your sample if your saliva sample does not contain enough DNA volume, you do not provide enough saliva, or the results do not meet the requisite quality and accuracy standards of Profile’s third party contract laboratory. If the laboratory processing fails because of any of these reasons, the Client has one of two options: (1) Profile will process the same saliva sample without any additional charges to the Client. If the second attempt fails, Profile will offer to ship another kit to the Client to collect a second saliva sample at no charge; or (2) the Client may elect a full refund of the amount paid to Profile for Profile Precise testing. Despite established standards for the processing of saliva samples, a small fraction of data processed during the laboratory process may not be capable of interpretation or may be incorrect (“Errors”). Clients are not entitled to refunds arising from Errors.

You represent and warrant that the data that you provide about yourself in filling out the Profile account registration form are and will remain accurate and complete, and you agree to update such data as necessary to maintain its accuracy, including without limitation your email address.

- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

Profile cannot and does not confirm that users are who they claim to be. Because Profile does not and cannot be involved in user-to-user transactions or control the behavior of the Profile site’s users, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Profile site users, you release Profile (and its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents and employees) from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes.
Other Providers. Except for information, products or services clearly identified as being supplied by Profile, Profile does not operate, control or endorse any information, products or services on the Internet, including on the Profile site. Profile cannot and does not guarantee or warrant that files available for downloading through the Profile site will be free of viruses or code that could cause damage to your computer and the information and files contained within your computer. If you use the Profile site, you are responsible for taking steps necessary to protect your computer and the information on it, and for maintaining a means external to the Profile site for the reconstruction of any lost data.
Hyperlinks. To the extent the Profile site provides links to sites operated by third parties, these links are not under the control of Profile and Profile is not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site, or any changes or updates to such site. Profile is not responsible for any webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any linked site. Profile will provide these links merely as a convenience to you. The inclusion of any linked site on the Profile site does not imply endorsement by Profile of the site or the information, products or services contained on it.
Although the Profile site is accessible worldwide, not all products or services discussed, referenced or made available on the Profile site are available to all persons or in all geographic locations or jurisdictions. Profile makes no representation that materials in the Profile site are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Profile site from other locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable. Profile reserves the right to limit the availability of the Profile site and/or the provision of any product or service described thereon to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction it so desires at any time and in our sole discretion and to limit the quantities of any such product or service that we provide.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Profile, our affiliates, sponsors, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), or other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from your breach of these terms and conditions or your activities in connection with the Profile site or Profile site-related services.
Making Purchases. If products or services are made available on the Profile site, and if you wish to make purchases of products or services described on the Profile site, you may be asked by Profile or the applicable merchant or service provider to supply certain information, including but not limited to credit card or other information. If you submit such information to Profile, you understand that any such information will be treated by Profile in the manner described in our Privacy Statement. You agree that all information that you provide to Profile or any such merchant or service provider will be accurate, complete and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by you or any users of your account and credit card or other payment mechanisms at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will also be responsible for paying any applicable taxes relating to your purchases. Moreover, you agree to review and to comply with the terms and conditions of any specific agreement, if any, that you enter into with the merchant and/or service provider in connection with the licensing or purchase of any product or service.
Registration; Use of Secure Areas and Passwords. Some areas of the Profile site may require you to register with us. When and if you register, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by our registration form (including your e-mail address) and (b) to maintain and update your information (including your e-mail address) to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You acknowledge that should any information provided by you be found to be untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we reserve the right to terminate these terms and conditions with you and your use of the Profile site.
As part of the registration process, your user name will be your email address and you will be asked to select a password. Profile may refuse to allow you to use a username or password that impersonates someone else, may be illegal, may be protected by trademark or other proprietary rights law, is vulgar or otherwise offensive, or may cause confusion, as determined by Profile in our sole discretion. You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your password and agree not to distribute, transfer or resell your use of or access to the Profile site to any third party. YOU ARE SOLELY AND ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD AND SOLELY AND ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CONDUCTED THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT.
Claims of Copyright Infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you have a good faith belief that materials hosted by Profile infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly being infringed upon; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed upon (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Profile to locate the material on the Profile site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Profile a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to Profile Development, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, P.O. Box 2010, 801 Broadway North, Fargo, ND 58122-0206. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
Miscellaneous. These terms and conditions are entered into in the State of South Dakota and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of South Dakota, exclusive of its choice of law rules. Each party to these terms and conditions hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the County of Minnehaha in the State of South Dakota for any dispute arising under or in connection with these terms and conditions, the Profile site or any Profile site-related services, and waives any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts. In any action to enforce these terms and conditions, the prevailing party will be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees. In the event that any of the provisions of these terms and conditions shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these terms and conditions shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Failure of any party to insist upon strict compliance with any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver or relinquishment of any similar right or power at any subsequent time.
These terms and conditions, the Client Membership Agreement, and the Privacy Statement constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto pertaining to your access and use of the Profile site and Content, and any and all written or oral agreements heretofore existing between the parties hereto are expressly canceled. These terms and conditions are not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with prior written consent. Any heading, caption or section title contained in this Agreement is inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof. Profile reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate the use of the Profile site by a user at any time.
