7. YOUR RIGHT OF CANCELLATION
7.1 As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 7.2. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to continue with the Programme, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens'Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
7.2 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date on which you pay your fee, which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract is the day 14 days after the Contract is formed. Please refer to clause 6.4 for repeated cancellation requests.
7.3 If you chose to start using the Programme during the cancellation period (by entering the members’ homepage) you do not lose your right to cancel your subscription to the Programme during the 14 day cancellation period, but we may charge you for the period from starting the Programme to the date of cancellation (inclusive). If you are a New Customer you are entitled to a cancellation period of 14 days following the date
your first subscription for the service is activated (“Cooling-off” period). During the Cooling-off period you can change your mind and cancel the service.
However, if either;
• you change from your current paid for subscription to a new paid for subscription, or
• you are a returning customer who has had a paid for subscription or has an active subscription in place within the last 30 days,
then you will not have a Cooling-off period and will not be entitled to a cancellation refund unless your new service has features (new content such as recipes, videos diet plans or articles, are not classed as new features) that have not previously been available or provided to you as part of a previous subscription.
If you are returning to a subscription after more than 30 days, you will be classed as a new customer as described above for the purposes of Cooling-off period only and will be entitled to a pro-rata cancellation refund. Any member rejoining within 30 days of an account expiring will not be entitled to use any promotional offer or discount advertised.
7.4 After the cooling off period of 14 days, you can cancel your monthly subscription to the Programme at any time by giving us one months’ notice.
7.5 Subscriptions to the Programme will automatically renew at the end of the initial subscription period at the standard rate as advertised on our website from time to time for whichever membership type had been previously subscribed to and we will continue to deduct the subscription fee from your credit or debit card at the appropriate frequency until you cancel. The subscription will remain in place until such time you have cancelled either online or by email - this is regardless of the usage by you the customer during the active subscription period.
Subscribers to the Programme for Quarterly or Six monthly subscriptions will be emailed no later than 14 days before renewal to enable you to extend your membership choosing an alternative subscription period. Where you revert to a monthly membership, we will continue to deduct the appropriate subscription fee from your credit or debit card every month until you cancel. Where no alteration to a Quarterly subscription is made we will automatically renew your subscription at the end of the initial subscription period at the standard rate as advertised on our website from time to time for whichever membership type had been previously subscribed to and we will continue to deduct the subscription fee from your credit or debit card at the appropriate frequency until you cancel.
