This document (the "Agreement") is a legally binding agreement between you and Second Nature Health Ltd, trading under the name Second Nature, a company registered in England and Wales under number 08511152 ("Second Nature") that governs your use of the online and mobile services associated with Second Nature, including but not limited to, www.secondnature.io and all associated subdomains (the "Website"), and the Second Nature mobile application ("App").
For ease of reference, all the features and functionality of both the App and the Website, together with all its content (whether accessible wirelessly, electronically or downloadable for printing), shall be referred to herein as the "System".
One component of the System is the self-help lifestyle improvement program with associated expert articles, tools, healthcare tracking technology, and online community (the "Second Nature Service"). All terms governing the System also apply to the Second Nature Service. The System and the Second Nature Service are both owned and managed by Second Nature Health Ltd.
Please note that you must read and agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement before you use the System and/or the Second Nature Service. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, you may NOT use the System nor may you use the Second Nature Service.
The terms "we", "us", "our" and "ours" when used in these terms mean Second Nature, which includes any parent company, subsidiaries, branches or affiliates under common ownership or control of Second Nature. The terms "you", "your" and "yours" when used in these terms mean any user of the System.
You acknowledge and agree that the Second Nature Service is a personalized self-help system designed to help you improve your own wellbeing and that if you choose to access the Second Nature Service you are solely responsible for deciding which of the suggested techniques you put into practice and how to apply those techniques.
You also acknowledge and agree that Second Nature is not a medical organisation and that the Second Nature Service is not intended to diagnose, treat or otherwise address any medical problem. The material on the System, whether posted by Second Nature employees, or other users, is provided for your information and not as medical advice and should not be seen as a replacement for consultation with a doctor or other qualified care professional. You are urged to seek the advice of a doctor before beginning any weight loss programme. If you receive advice from a doctor or other qualified medical professional which conflicts with anything contained in the System, then the former should take precedence. The Second Nature Service, the App and this Website are not intended for use by minors, or pregnant women. Individuals with any type of health condition are specifically warned to seek professional medical advice prior to initiating any form of weight loss programme.
The System is only available to either individuals who enter their card details, PayPal details, or who have had the Service commissioned for them by a third party partner (e.g. NHS England, a Clinical Commissioning Group, or their employer) ("Paid for Services"). Unless otherwise specified, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to make personal non-commercial use only of that content and those features of the System and Second Nature Service in respect of which you or the third party have paid all applicable rental fees and charges, provided that you comply fully with the provisions of this Agreement.
If paying for your own programme, within the first 14 days of your Second Nature start date, you may cancel your subscription to receive a full refund via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Terms of the refund vary by whether you have selected the ‘hardware package’, ‘no hardware package’ or ‘digital package’.
(a) Hardware Package
If you have selected the ‘hardware package’ you will be given a free returns label to send back the healthcare technology that you have been provided with. Please do not return the Tech package to our office address. Your free return label will include the correct address. Upon receipt of the returned hardware you will be offered a full refund if the weighing scales are not materially damaged (i.e. they can be reused for another customer). If the weighing scales are materially damaged then we will have to take the first full-price payment as a cover charge for this.
If the healthcare technology that you have been provided with is not returned within 30 days of cancellation, you will be charged for the full cost of the programme (equivalent to the cost of a 3-month minimum contract).
(b) No Hardware Package
If you have selected the ‘no hardware package’ you will need to arrange a return of the Second Nature Handbook and Recipe Book yourself. Upon receipt of the returned books you will be offered a full first-month payment (we are unable to refund postage costs).
(c) Digital Package
With the digital package, there is nothing that you need to return to us if you cancel.
Through signing up to the Second Nature programme, you are signing up for a 3-month minimum contract. At the end of the 3-month contract, you will transition to the 'Sustain' monthly payment plan. You can cancel your Sustain subscription directly in the app by going to Profile, then Settings, then Manage my account. Once you have cancelled, at the end of your subscription your account will be disabled and you will no longer be able to access the Second Nature programme.
Second Nature reserves the right to vary this Agreement from time to time by amending this page. Registered user's will be notified of changes by the email address we have for you on file. Any material amendments intending to bind an existing user of the System shall become effective 7 days after the email.
You are urged and advised to seek the advice of a doctor before beginning any lifestyle improvement program. If you have any other concerns or questions about your health or medicines, you should always consult an appropriate healthcare professional. Be cautious about embarking on vigorous exercise if you have any serious medical condition, including (but not limited to) back pain, high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you are pregnant. Always seek professional medical advice when contemplating any changes in your prescribed medicines.
This programme is intended as a lifestyle change guide and is therefore not classified as a medical device, meaning the programme should not replace any existing recommendations that have been given by a health care professional. The content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, support, diagnosis, or treatment. As such this programme may not be suitable for every individual. You should always seek the advice of your healthcare professional with any questions you may have regarding any underlying / existing medical condition before starting on this programme.
Those with suspected/diagnosed eating disorders may be deemed ineligible to partake in the programme. Current best practice to diagnose and treat eating disorders supports the use of in-person therapy, which goes beyond our scope of practice.
Second Nature is not suitable for women who are pregnant or exclusively breastfeeding due to the different nutritional requirements to support the development and growth of a baby.

There is no guarantee of availability of information on the System at any time, nor that it is up to date or error-free. As with any purchase of a product or service through any medium or in any environment, you should use your judgment and exercise caution where appropriate. No advice or information whether oral or in writing obtained by you from Second Nature shall create any warranty on behalf of Second Nature in this regard. Certain jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or disclaimer of certain warranties. Accordingly, some of the above disclaimers may not apply to you. Your statutory rights as a consumer, if any, are not affected hereby.
To the fullest extent applicable permitted by applicable laws, Second Nature, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, licensors or any third parties exclude liability for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages (including but not limited to any loss of data, service interruption, computer failure or pecuniary loss, loss of income or revenue, loss of business, loss of profits or contracts, loss of anticipated savings, loss of data, loss of goodwill, wasted management or office time and for any other loss or damage of any kind, however arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise, even if foreseeable) arising out of the use of or inability to use the System or Second Nature Service, even if you have advised Second Nature about the possibility of such loss, and including any damages resulting therefrom. Commentary and other materials posted on the System by other users are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to the System, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents. If any part of this limitation of liability is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the aggregate liability of Second Nature (including any of its affiliates, service providers and licensors) under such circumstance for liabilities that otherwise would have been limited, shall not exceed the maximum single purchase price of the Second Nature Service. Any claims arising out of or in connection with your use of the System must be brought within one year of the date of the event giving rise to such action occurred.
Nothing in this provision affects our or our contractors' liability for death or personal injury arising from our (or their) negligence nor our (or their) liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under an applicable law.
Second Nature will make reasonable efforts to keep the System operational. However, certain technical difficulties, maintenance, or any other cause beyond our reasonable control (including (but not limited to) failure of the internet, natural disaster, labor shortage or dispute, or governmental act) may, from time to time, result in interruptions. Second Nature reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, functions and features of the System with or without notice. You agree not to hold us liable for any such failure or delay in performance and we agree to make all reasonable efforts to restore the System (or any part thereof) as soon as practicable. Following any disruption within Second Nature's reasonable control we shall extend your access to the Paid for Services for at least the duration for which those Paid for Services were inaccessible on written request to the below address.

Second Nature may assign (or otherwise transfer) this Agreement or any part of it without restrictions. You may not assign (or otherwise transfer) this Agreement or any part of it to any third party.
If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be changed and interpreted to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision fully permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
This Agreement is between you and us only and will become effective when you start using the System and will remain effective until terminated by you or Second Nature. Second Nature reserves the right to terminate this Agreement or suspend your Second Nature account at any time in case of unauthorized, or suspected unauthorized use of the System whether in contravention of this Agreement or otherwise.
