TERMS & CONDITIONS
Updated December 2018
The Habit Program (the “Program”) is a nutrition and diet recommendation platform provided by Habit, LLC (“Habit”) and offered through this website (the “Website”) and a mobile application (the “Mobile App”). The Program utilizes nutrition-related blood and genetic test results provided directly by you or by a third-party testing laboratory, as well as your body measurements, physical activity levels, dietary goals, and eating pattern information to deliver nutrition and diet recommendations, coaching, that are tailored to your personal health, needs and goals. These Terms and Conditions apply to any use (i.e., through the Website or the Mobile App) of the Program.
By clicking your acceptance to these Terms and Conditions, you have chosen to use the Program services and have given your informed consent. Participant requests for certain tests will be reviewed and ordered by a licensed physician. The results of your tests and the recommendations will be available to you online in the form of the Program service.
Your use of the Program service is voluntary. It is your choice whether to participate or not. You may cancel the service at any time. If for any reason you believe that your use is anything but voluntary, please terminate all use of the service.
Procedures and protocol
As part of the Program registration process, we will collect some information from you. The information collected will include general contact information, age, gender, and health information, such as information about your diet, lifestyle, taste preferences, your physical activity levels, and other important details about yourself.
As part of the Program, you will either directly submit your blood and/or genetic results that were generated by another testing service or you will self-collect blood and/or genetic samples that will be tested by a third-party laboratory for biomarkers that inform your nutritional status and well-being. For self-collection, some of your results may be reviewed by a licensed physician. Your nutritional profile will be analyzed using the proprietary algorithms that are part of the Habit system (the “System”), which are used to generate personalized nutrition information and recommendations. These recommendations will then be available online. In the event that a biomarker indicates a potential medical problem requiring prompt medical attention, you will be notified and advised to contact your doctor.
Risks and discomforts
Although the risks and discomforts associated with the finger pricks are very low, you might be at risk for excessive bleeding, fainting or feeling light-headed, hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin), or infection (a slight risk any time the skin is broken). You may also feel minor pain from the lancet device used to collect blood from the tip of your finger. While the possibility of this happening is low, you should still be aware of the possibility.
Part of the testing process includes consumption of the Habit Challenge® Shake which is a sweet tasting mixed macronutrient beverage nutritionally equivalent to a large American beverage. The Habit Challenge® Shake is designed to be a metabolic challenge. This requires an adequate energy load and an appropriate amount and type of key macronutrients to see changes in biomarkers needed to make our Program recommendations. There is risk that consumption of the beverage could lead to an upset stomach or other gastrointestinal issues. While the possibility of this happening is low, you should still be aware of the possibility. Consumers who've undergone bariatric surgery, or have a specific condition or anatomical abnormality that may impact digestion of sugar and fat, should consult with their physician prior to consumption of the beverage.
If you feel unwell or ill at any time during the testing process, you should not continue with the test and if necessary, seek medical help immediately
Habit, or the licensed physician who reviews your results, may advise you to have a follow-up visit with your doctor after reviewing the results of your blood test. As a result, you may learn about health conditions and problems or potential health risks that you were not aware of before your participation in the Program services. You may experience stress, anxiety, or emotional or physical discomfort when you learn about health problems or potential health problems.
In addition, you could have a disease or condition even though your test results are in the normal range. You could have test results outside the normal range and still not have a disease or condition. Results outside the normal range, though, could lead to additional cost or discomfort if your physician orders follow-up tests.
Disclosure of certain information collected through the questions that are part of the Program registration process may make you feel uncomfortable. There may also be additional risks to participation in the Program that are currently unforeseeable.
Recommendations regarding diet provided to you may or may not be beneficial to you and may cause or exacerbate certain medical problems. You are following these recommendations at your own risk. Diet recommendations may be given to which you may be allergic or sensitive to. For example, a “hero food” that is recommended may be a tree nut due to its nutritional value. If you have a known allergy or sensitivity do not follow that recommendation.
If you feel unwell or ill after recommendations are provided or during any follow-up period, you should seek medical help immediately and discontinue Program recommendations.
We may incorporate different or additional technologies to collect or test data in the future. We may, at our sole discretion, choose to have your samples reprocessed by the third-party laboratory or other laboratory using any such different or additional technologies. However, your purchase of enrollment in the Program does not automatically include any such different or additional technologies, and we reserve the right to charge you additional fees in order to process your sample using any such different or additional technologies. You may also need to submit a new blood sample or other biological specimen for processing on such different or additional technologies.
You are paying for the Program services with your personal funds and any third-party payers will not pay for or reimburse you for these costs. Habit will not submit any information provided by you for reimbursement or payment from private insurance carriers, Medicare, Medicaid, or any other third-party payers.
If you participate in the Program services, you may or may not experience health benefits or other benefits. Potential benefits may include an improved health and nutritional profile, a better understanding of nutrition and health, and improved physical fitness.
Right to refuse or withdraw
You do not have to take part in the Program service if you do not wish to do so. You may also stop participating at any time you choose. Participation in the Program is entirely your choice.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Habit, LLC, its licensors, suppliers, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns, from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees) and other expenses that arise from your participation in the Program services.
