If you operate a blog, comment on a blog, post material to the website, post links on the website, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of the website, you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that content. That is the case regardless of whether the content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making content available, you represent and warrant that:

you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
the content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
the content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
the content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
your blog is not getting advertised via unwanted electronic messages such as spam links on newsgroups, email lists, other blogs and web sites, and similar unsolicited promotional methods;

you have, in the case of content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by me or otherwise.

Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, I have the right (though not the obligation) to, in my sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in our reasonable opinion, violates any of my policies or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the website to any individual or entity for any reason, in our sole discretion. I will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
Responsibility of website visitors
I have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the website, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating the website, I do not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. The website may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. The website may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. I disclaim any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of the website, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.
Visitors further acknowledge understanding that:
All articles, information, and resources published by me are based on my own opinion and are meant to motivate readers to make their own nutrition and health decisions either after consulting with me in person, or another health care provider. All readers should consult a doctor before making any health changes, especially any changes related to a specific diagnosis or condition. No information on this site should be relied upon to determine diet, make a medical diagnosis or determine a treatment for a medical condition. Any statements or claims about the possible health benefits conferred by any foods or supplements are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Who can use my website and the requirements to create an account
In order to use my website and/or receive my services, you must be at least 18 years of age, or of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, and possess the legal authority, right and freedom to enter into these Terms as a binding agreement. You are not allowed to use this website and/or receive services if doing so is prohibited in your country or under any law or regulation applicable to you.
Key commercial Terms
When buying a service, you agree that: (i) you are responsible for reading the full service listing before making a commitment to buy it and availing yourself of the opportunity to hold a free 20-minute exploratory conversation: (ii) you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the service when you commit to buy a service and you complete the check-out payment process. However, because of the personal nature of health coaching, I offer a generous refund policy (see below).
The prices I charge for using my services are listed on the website. I reserve the right to change my prices for services displayed at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. Additional information about pricing and sales tax is available on the payments page.
The fee for the services and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged on a monthly basis to your payment method.
To cancel or reschedule a single appointment, please contact me at least 48 hours before the time of the appointment starting, to either request a refund or to change the booking time. Cancellations or rescheduling made less than 48 hours in advance of the appointment starting will be charged at my hourly rate of £60.
If you wish to cancel part-way through any pre-paid plan, please do so 48 hours before the start of your next booked session and you will be given a full refund for that and any remaining sessions. Refunds will be made based upon the original payment method.
If I have to reschedule a single session I will offer you the choice of an alternative appointment or a refund for that session. If I have to cancel or postpone the remainder of any pre-paid plan you have bought, I will offer you the choice of rescheduling them or a refund for the remaining session(s) that have been paid for but not delivered. In the event that I bring our agreement to an end before all your pre-paid sessions have been delivered, I will refund you for any remaining session(s) in accordance with the terms of our agreement.
Retention of right to change offering
I may, without prior notice, change the services; stop providing the services or any features of the services I offer; or create limits for the services. I may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend access to the services without notice and liability for any reason, or for no reason.
Warranties & responsibility for services
Health coaching by its nature is dependent on the relationship between the coach and the client and on what each party brings to that relationship.
As part of the ethics code I uphold, I will continue with professional development and adhere to industry best practice, and always intend to give you my best service.
Coaching is designed to facilitate change by you, the client, and you are responsible for deciding what to do in your own life, having taken part in coaching.
I will be open and realistic with you about the potential benefits and limitations of coaching, but it may be that coaching, or our particular coaching relationship, does not meet your expectations. In this instance, please discuss your doubts with me at the earliest opportunity so that I can address anything that I may be able to improve upon. However, in the event that you no longer wish to continue with our coaching relationship, please refer to the refund policy above.

You may discontinue use and request to cancel your account at any time. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, with respect to automatically-renewed subscriptions to paid services, such subscriptions will be discontinued only upon the expiration of the respective period for which you have already made payment.
