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 we may, but are 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 in 20 Appointments or less or we will refund your Membership Fee paid through the date of your 20th Appointment, not to exceed your first year’s Membership Fee (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 period of time it takes you to complete 20 Appointments but then regain weight prior to or at the conclusion of your 20-Appointment period; (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; you will not be reimbursed the cost of 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 services 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 Profile Program.
- 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 Services 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 Services are for 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 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 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.
