TERMS OF SERVICE
This Agreement is made today between Alasen Zarndt [the Coach] and the person named above in this form, [the Client].
PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
The Client understands that the regular cost of the Program is as listed on the sales page. This payment is due in full upon enrollment of the course, unless arrangements for a payment plan have been made.
In the event of the Client’s absence or withdrawal, for any reason whatsoever, the Client will remain responsible for the regular cost of the program. This includes remaining payment plan payments, if applicable.
The Coach reserves the right to cancel the program if at any point she feels it is not advantageous for the coaching program to continue. If this happens, the Client is only responsible for the pro rata share of coaching services received.
I understand that Alasen Zarndt is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and does not dispense medical advice nor prescribe treatment. Rather, she provides education to enhance the Client’s knowledge of health as it relates to foods, dietary supplements, and behaviors associated with eating. While nutritional support can be an important compliment to medical care, the Client understands nutrition coaching is not a substitute for the diagnosis, treatment, or care of disease by a medical provider.
If the Client is under the care of a health care professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Client should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplement use with his or her doctor, and should not discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor.
The Client acknowledges that the care they receive during their nutrition coaching sessions is separate from the care they receive from any medical facility in that the nutrition coaching sessions are in no way intended to be construed as medical advice or care. The Client should continue regular medical supervision and care by their primary care physician.
The Client understands that the role of the Nutrition Coach is not to prescribe or assessÂ micro- and macronutrient levels; provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services; or to diagnose, treat or cure any disease, condition or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather, the Coach is a mentor and guide who has been trained in holistic health coaching to help clients reach their own health goals by helping clients devise and implement positive, sustainable lifestyle changes. The Client understands that the Coach is not acting in the capacity of a doctor, licensed dietician-nutritionist, psychologist or other licensed or registered professional, and that any advice given by the Coach is not meant to take the place of advice by these professionals.
The Client has chosen to work with the Coach and understands that the information received should not be seen as medical or nursing advice and is not meant to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AND RELEASE OF HEALTH CARE RELATED CLAIMS
The Client acknowledges that the Client takes full responsibility for the Clientâ’s life and well-being, as well as the lives and well-being of the Client’s family and children (where applicable), and all decisions made during and after this program.
The Client expressly assumes the risks of the Nutrition Coaching Program, including the risks of trying new foods or supplements, and the risks inherent in making lifestyle changes.
The Client releases the Coach from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, which the Client ever had, now has or will have in the future against the Coach, arising from the Client’s past or future participation in, or otherwise with respect to, the Program, unless arising from the gross negligence of the Coach.
The Coach will keep the Client’s information private, and will not share the Client’s information to any third party unless compelled to by law or with the consent of the Client.
ARBITRATION, CHOICE OF LAW, AND LIMITED REMEDIES
In the event that there ever arises a dispute between Coach and Client with respect to the services provided pursuant to this agreement or otherwise pertaining to the relationship between the parties, the parties agree to submit to binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (Commercial Arbitration and Mediation Center for the Americas Mediation and Arbitration Rules). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Such arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator. The sole remedy that can be awarded to the Client in the event that an award is granted in arbitration is refund of the Program Fee. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no award of consequential or other damages, unless specifically set forth herein, may be granted to the Client.
This agreement shall be construed according to the laws of the State of Illinois. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of the Agreement shall be severed and remain in full force.
