The conditions applicable to all iBodz Silver or iBodz Gold (paid-for) Membership subscribers (Trial Members or full Members) are set out in Clauses 5.6 to 5.9 below.  iBodz Bronze (guest) Members of iBodz are not required to pay for subscriptions to access their relevant parts of the Website, however cancellation of guest Membership shall be dealt with in the same way as paid-for Membership in accordance with Clauses 5.7 and 5.8.

4.2 Where we offer you a Trial Membership of iBodz (“Trial Membership”), such Trial Membership will run from the day after your application to register with iBodz has been accepted by iBodz and continue for the Trial Membership offer period as indicated on the Website. You will be notified of your first payment date upon registration. Trial Memberships are only available to new Membership subscribers of iBodz and for the limited periods as set out on the Website.  Previous Membership subscribers or those subscribers who have already benefited from a Trial Membership subscription to iBodz do not qualify for a further Trial Membership.

If you do not want to continue your subscription after your Trial Membership comes to an end, you must contact us at least ten (10) Working Days (a “Working Day” being any day between Monday-Friday which is not a public holiday in the United Kingdom) before your Trial Membership period ends by submitting a cancellation request to us via the cancel my membership page, otherwise your subscription will automatically continue and you will be charged the full iBodz monthly Membership Subscription rate which (at the date these Terms are available on this page of the Website) is either:
i.    £9.99 per calendar month for Silver Membership; or
ii.    £19.99 for Gold Membership.

All Membership Fees are payable one calendar month in advance, in accordance with Clause 7 below.

4.3 Where we offer your first (1) month's Membership subscription for free, your first (1) month's subscription payment will be waived.  Unless you tell us you no longer wish to continue your Membership subscription after this first (1) month discounted period by submitting a cancellation request to us via the cancel my membership page at least ten (10) Working Days notice before your discounted Membership subscription period ends, your Membership subscription to iBodz will automatically continue at the full iBodz Membership subscription rate outlined in Clause 5.2 above, or at the rates detailed on the Website at the time your full Membership subscription is due.

If you do not wish to continue, you should let us know during this six-week period and we will cancel your subscription.  This only applies to subscriptions payable monthly – if you have pre-paid an annual subscription then the price you have paid will not alter and any new prices applicable to your next annual subscription period will be notified to you by email six (6) weeks prior to the end of your annual subscription period. 

4.7 Under UK legislation, you have the right to cancel your subscription within seven (7) Working Days from the date you submit your application for subscription to iBodz. If this right is exercised, we will aim to refund any Membership subscription fee paid within thirty (30) days. Please contact us to cancel your subscription on this basis by submitting a cancellation request to us via the cancel my membership page, within the seven (7) Working Days notice period.

You must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party.  We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms, or have used the Website in contravention with the Disclaimer and/or the Privacy Policy.

6 Payment Terms

6.1 A paid-for subscription Member is responsible for paying all sums due to iBodz in connection with their Membership account in accordance with this Clause 7. The first Membership subscription fee payable in accordance with Clause 5 is due when the Membership account is setup and payment of the Membership subscription fee is a condition of Membership. Every calendar month (or calendar year depending on the type of subscription applied for) your Membership account will be charged the subscription fee for the following months (or year’s) subscription, together with any other fees for the following months subscription (for example, proposed additional personal training costs) plus any accumulated charges for the past month (for example, for additional personal training costs incurred in the previous calendar month) (“Fees”). Failure by the Member to use any of the services available for a Member through its subscription to iBodz does not relieve the Member of their payment obligations under these Terms.

6.2 Potential registrants and/or Members can pay by Credit Card or Debit Card.  Payment details, together with details of the subscription package applied for, shall be collected by us through our secure financial data collection mechanism, which transfers the details of the potential registrant and/or Member’s financial data (as well as subscription package data) to PayPal’s online payment system for processing. The potential registrant / Member acknowledges that we hold data regarding the subscription package that is being signed up to by the potential registrant / Member, in addition to the last four digits and the expiry date of the card used to purchase the subscription package together with details on when payment of Fees are due.  The potential registrant / Member further acknowledges and agrees that by sending their request for a specific subscription package, that payments for Fees are due on a recurring basis in accordance with that specific subscription package (unless the subscription is cancelled in accordance with these Terms) and therefore authorises the continual payment collection terms applicable to that specific subscription package (e.g. on a monthly basis and for a specific amount) so that PayPal can collect the payment for Fees from the Member’s Credit Card or Debit Card provided for payment through PayPal, for PayPal to forward payment of the Fees to us directly.

The potential registrant and/or Member shall NOT send credit card details to iBodz directly by email or any other publically interceptable means, electronically or otherwise. All credit card transactions shall be processed through PayPal directly via the Website. iBodz cannot be held responsible for the security of, or the misuse of, credit card or other personal information.

6.3 Potential registrants and/or Members should be aware that further terms and conditions required by PayPal may apply, and can be found at www.paypal.co.uk.

6.4 iBodz reserves the right to immediately terminate a Member’s account and/or service for any unpaid (in whole or part) period of Membership subscription (with or without notice). Termination of service in no ways relieves or excuses the Member from any obligation to pay outstanding charges or expenses. In the event iBodz starts collection processes of any type, the Member shall be liable for all collection costs, including reasonable legal fees and expenses.

6.5 iBodz reserves the right to terminate a Member’s account and/or service for any reason (including paid-for subscriptions and/or guest subscriptions), on serving notice to the Member at any time by email to the Member. 

6.6 iBodz reserves the right to terminate a Member’s account and/or service (for paid-for subscriptions and/or guest subscriptions) immediately if a Member has used the Website for unsuitable or inappropriate means or has behaved in an unsuitable manner, as determined by iBodz in its entire discretion.  The Member shall not be entitled to any refund of Fees if iBodz terminates Membership in accordance with this Clause 7.6.

6.7 You may terminate your Membership subscription at any time by submitting a cancellation request to us via the cancel my membership page. If we receive notice of your termination during an uncompleted calendar month, then you will not be entitled to a refund for the remaining part of that calendar month’s subscription Fee and we shall be entitled to charge you one further calendar month’s subscription Fee in accordance with Clause 5.7.  We shall acknowledge receipt of any termination requests we receive from you within 24 hours of receipt.  If you do not receive a termination receipt email from us within 24 hours, please ensure you contact us immediately via our contact form selecting 'myAccount support' from the drop down category list. You may continue to enjoy the benefits of your iBodz Membership subscription for the time remaining of your paid-up subscription.   For the avoidance of doubt, Guest (Bronze) subscribers can terminate their Membership subscriptions at any time by submitting a cancellation request to us via the cancel my membership page, such termination to take effect as at the date we sent email confirmation of receipt of a guest (Bronze) Member’s termination notice email, when the guest (Bronze) Member shall no longer be able to access the Website and/or any of the iBodz services that a guest Member is entitled to receive. 

6.8 The Fees chargeable to paid-for subscription Members exclude any applicable value added tax (VAT), or any other applicable tax or levy, that iBodz may charge in addition to the Fees.
