You acknowledge and agree that these Terms of Use continue to apply even after your User Account expires or is terminated, or where you have stopped using the Platform.

 

SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE

Subscription

You can choose to subscribe to the Platform either on a monthly, or annual basis, or for such other periods that LEANSQUAD may offer from time to time, and the applicable fees are set forth on the LEANSQUAD webpage (app.lean-squad.com) or on the applicable app store from which the LEANSQUAD App can be downloaded.

 

Eligibility for any promotions or discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. You are responsible for reading and understanding the specific terms and conditions applicable to any promotions or discounts.

 

LEANSQUAD reserves the right to revise and update the applicable fees for subscriptions (including the fees set out on the relevant app stores where you subscribe to the Platform), and the different subscription packages available, at any time at its sole discretion. Any such revision or updates to the fees will apply prospectively to any subscription entered into following the effective date of the fee revision or update.

 

Free trials

We may provide a free trial subscription for a fixed period of time, as determined by LEANSQUAD in its sole discretion. Unless otherwise stated by LEANSQUAD in respect of specific promotions, free trials are only available to new LEANSQUAD users, and LEANSQUAD reserves the right to cancel any trial subscription immediately if we become aware that the subscriber has already had a trial subscription on a different User Account or using a different email address. Furthermore, any attempts to register for a further free trial on the same User Account or using the same email address may result in you being charged for the applicable subscription fees.

 

After the trial, your subscription will renew automatically at the full subscription price unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the trial. To cancel your subscription during the trial, please refer to the instructions set out below under “Automatic renewal of subscription”.

 

Payment details

You can pay the fees for your subscription on the LEANSQUAD website or LEANSQUAD App either through a credit card, PayPal payment or Stripe payment, or through your account with the applicable app store in the case of the LEANSQUAD App (i.e. through in-app purchases).

 

The price of your subscription, as well as the currency in which your subscription is payable, will be specified during the order process, and may vary depending on your country of residence (as determined by the IP address of your device used to access the Platform).

 

When you purchase a subscription, you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details, you represent that you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorization or any authorization is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription. LEANSQUAD reserves the right to contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties if there is suspicious activity.

 

In addition to the subscription fee you are charged, certain banks and credit card issuers may charge a foreign transaction fee on transactions which take place abroad or in a foreign currency. You are responsible for paying any such fees.

 

Automatic renewal of subscription

Your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel at least twenty-four (24) hours before the end of the current billing period. However, you may cancel your subscription at any time by navigating to your profile page and following the prompts to cancel your subscription. Upon such cancellation, you will still be entitled to access the subscription services on the Platform for the remainder of the duration that you have paid for.

 

Cancellation and refund of subscription fees

 

Where you have subscribed for the Platform through an app store, the cancellation and refund of subscription fees will be governed by the applicable terms and conditions of that app store.

 

Where you have subscribed for the Platform through our website, you may change your mind and receive a full refund of the amount you have paid for the subscription within seven (7) days starting from the day you subscribed to the Platform through our website (the “Cooling-off Period”):

(a)

if you sign up for a free trial, you agree that the Cooling-off Period for the paid subscription that you are receiving the free trial in connection with ends seven (7) days after you start the free trial – if you use the Platform during the free trial and don’t cancel the paid subscription before the free trial ends, you lose your right of withdrawal; and

(b)

if you purchase a subscription, you agree that the Cooling-off Period is available for seven (7) days after you have paid for the subscription, but the Cooling-off Period expires once you use the Platform during that period.

To exercise this right, please contact the LEANSQUAD team using the details set out in Clause 9 of these Terms of Use.

Following expiry of the Cooling-off Period, subscriptions are non-refundable and there is no right to refunds or credits unless required by Applicable Laws. Although you may notify us of your intention to cancel your subscription at any time, such notice will only take effect at the end of your then current subscription period, and you will not receive a refund.

Eligibility

By placing an order on the Platform, you confirm that you are of legal age in your country or you have consent from your parent or guardian, you have full power, capacity and authority to agree to the Terms of Service and have not been previously suspended or removed from using the Platform.

 

Placing an order

You can place an order on the Platform by navigating to the “Shop” tab on the LEANSQUAD webpage and following the process for checking out once you have selected the products that you would like to purchase.

If there are any errors in your order, please contact the LEANSQUAD team (info@lean-squad.com) immediately using the details set out in Clause 9 of the Terms of Use.

 

After you have submitted an order by checking out on the LEANSQUAD webpage, we will send an email acknowledging receipt of your order to the email address that you have provided as part of your opening of your User Account. Once the products have been shipped, we will send another email to your email address confirming this (“Email Confirmation”). The Email Confirmation will be our acceptance of your order and the provisions of these Terms of Use will become binding on you and us in the form of a contract (the “Contract”). We suggest that you print a copy of these Terms of Use and the Email Confirmation for your future reference and records.

 

LEANSQUAD’s right to reject your order or cancel a Contract

 

LEANSQUAD expressly reserves the right to reject your order for any reason, in its sole discretion. Where your order has been rejected, you will not be charged for that order.

you do not meet our eligibility requirements, as set out in Clause 1.1;

LEANSQUAD may also carry out checks for security reasons and to identify fraud. LEANSQUAD reserves the right to contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties if there is suspicious activity.

 

No purchase for resale

 

The digital products (e.g. ebooks, training videos) that are available on the Platform are intended solely for direct sale to end consumers, and therefore the purchase of such digital products for resale (i.e. purchase with the intention for reselling the products to other consumers, business or third parties) is strictly prohibited. LEANSQUAD reserves the right to take any action to prevent resale of digital products, including restricting sales to you and cancelling any orders made by you.

 

PRICES AND PAYMENT

Prices and currency

 

The prices of products in an order will be at the prevailing prices displayed on the Platform when you check out. You will be able to verify the total price of your order prior to placing the order – this total price will include the price of all products as well as applicable shipping costs and taxes.

 

While prices for products may change over time on the Platform, these changes will not affect any orders that we have confirmed via an Email Confirmation.

 

While all payments made on the Platform for products that you order will be charged in United States Dollars (USD) and the invoice that you receive from LEANSQUAD will be denominated in USD, you can choose to view the prices of products in your local currency on the Platform. This conversion into your local currency is only for reference and may not always reflect the prevailing market currency conversion rate. Where the credit card or PayPal account that you use to pay for your order is denominated in a currency other than USD, you may be charged administrative and/or currency conversion fees by the applicable bank or service provider – you acknowledge and agree that you will be responsible for any such fees and that the prices listed on the Platform excludes such fees.

 

Payment methods and processing

You will only be able to make payment for your orders using the methods set out on the order checkout page on the Platform – these methods include PayPal and credit cards (via the Stripe platform). Please do not attempt to use any other payment methods as you may risk the loss of any payments made – LEANSQUAD will not be responsible or liable for any such losses.

 

Upon submitting your order on the LEANSQUAD webpage, the PayPal account or credit card (as applicable) that you selected will be charged for the amount of the order (including the applicable shipping charges and taxes).

 

Title transfer

LEANSQUAD will retain the title in any products that you have ordered until full payment of the total price (including applicable shipping costs and taxes).

 

SHIPPING AND DELIVERY

LEANSQUAD will happily ship your orders for products within Canada, the United States and to certain locations around the world. 

 

RETURNS AND CANCELLATIONS

Cancellation of orders before shipment

 

Prior to an order being shipped by us, you may be able to cancel that order and receive a full refund of the purchase price and the shipping costs. However, we begin processing orders placed through the Platform promptly, and therefore, if you wish to cancel an order, please notify us as soon as possible at the following email address: info@lean-squad.com 

 

Returning orders after shipment

Once an order has been shipped, you may exercise your statutory right of withdrawal by informing us of your desire to return the product within thirty (30) calendar days after the product is delivered to you. We require that your request to exercise a right of withdrawal is supported by proof of purchase (e.g. an invoice issued by LEANSQUAD). To exercise this right, please contact the LEANSQUAD team using the details set out in Clause 9 of the Terms of Use.

 

In exercising your right to withdraw, you must return the products to us without undue delay (and at your own cost) and no later than thirty (30) calendar days after you have first informed us of your desire to return the product. Upon our receipt of the returned products, we will refund the purchase price and the original shipping costs through the payment method that you used in placing the order. Alternatively, you can opt for the refund to be by way of a gift card of an equivalent value from LEANSQUAD.

 

Please ensure that the returned products are complete (e.g. all original packaging, accessories and/or documentation must be intact) and not used in any way. If you do not do this and this results in a reduction in the value of the product, we can hold you liable for such diminished value.

 

Defective products

At LEANSQUAD, we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If there’s an issue with your item, or it wasn’t as you expected, we’re here to help! Please refer to Clause 9 in the Terms of Use for details on how to contact the LEANSQUAD team for any queries you may have.

 

You are entitled to return products delivered to you in the event that they are defective or otherwise not in conformity with your order when you received them. We also note that LEANSQUAD is under a statutory duty in some countries to supply products that are in conformity with the terms of the relevant Contract and nothing in these Terms of Use will affect your legal rights. In making a request to return defective products, please provide us with your proof of purchase (e.g. an invoice issued by LEANSQUAD). In the event your claim is justified, the purchase price and the shipping costs will be refunded.

 

FORCE MAJEURE EVENT

Where a Force Majeure Event takes place and you no longer wish to receive the products you have ordered under a Contract, you may cancel the relevant Contract and receive a full refund of the purchase price and the shipping costs for the affected products.

POST-PREGNANCY ADDENDUM

These provisions apply when you participate in a program offered by LEANSQUAD on the platform and you are post-partum. If you do not agree to these provisions, you must not participate in the any LEANSQUAD Program.

 

When you are Post-Partum and you are participating in a LEANSQUAD Program, you represent, warrant and acknowledge the following:

you are participating in a LEANSQUAD Program entirely at your own risk, and acknowledge that if you make any modifications to the LEANSQUAD Program while participating, or if you undertake, while pregnant, any LEANSQUAD Program or workout not recommended by LEANSQUAD, you also do so entirely at your own risk. In addition, you understand that, in participating in a Program, there is (amongst other potential health risks), a risk of organ prolapse, back pain, bladder leakage, poor C-section scar healing, and the rate of reduction of diastasis recti (abdomen separation post birth). You acknowledge that these matters can all be affected by the pace, frequency and nature of exercise that you engage in post pregnancy and that you need to use caution and seek professional health advice if you are at all unsure about your health or fitness to continue, or health concerns arise after, you have undertaken any exercise as part of a LEANSQUAD Program;

(b)

you have obtained and relied on the medical clearance of your doctor, physician, obstetrician or other medical professional in determining to participate (and once commenced, to continue participating in) a LEANSQUAD Program;

(c)

LEANSQUAD makes no representation or warranty that any particular fitness, nutrition or health program is suitable, safe or adequate for any particular User. Accordingly, LEANSQUAD is not aware of and cannot determine your individual suitability for the LEANSQUAD Program. To the maximum extent permitted by Applicable Laws, you will indemnify LEANSQUAD and the Associated Parties and hold them harmless against all claims, demands, lawsuits, actions, proceedings, investigations, liabilities, damages, losses, costs or expenses including reasonable attorneys’ fees, in any way arising out of, in relation to or in connection with directly or indirectly:

(i)

your participation in a LEANSQUAD Program; or

(ii)

your breach of any of the provisions of the Post-Pregnancy Addendum;

(d)

any information provided by you to LEANSQUAD in connection with a LEANSQUAD Program, including the fact that you have received medical clearance to participate a LEANSQUAD Program, is true, and you further acknowledge that LEANSQUAD has relied on this representation in assuming that you can participate safely in the a LEANSQUAD Program; and

(e)

you know that you need to stop exercising and seek medical advice if at any time during or after having undertaken any exercise as part of a LEANSQUAD Program, you feel generally unwell or experience pain or discomfort, lower back or abdomen pain, or any other form of pain or symptoms (including without limitation any symptoms that your doctor, physician, obstetrician or other medical professional advised you of prior to engaging in a LEANSQUAD Program, or at any time thereafter).
