REGARDING CONTENT RELATING TO HEALTH & WELLNESS ON THE SITE:
THE SITE OFFERS WELLNESS, FITNESS AND NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION AND IS DESIGNED FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON THIS INFORMATION AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR, NOR DOES IT REPLACE, PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT. IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CONSULT WITH A PHYSICIAN OR OTHER HEALTH-CARE PROFESSIONAL. DO NOT DISREGARD, AVOID OR DELAY OBTAINING MEDICAL OR HEALTH RELATED ADVICE FROM YOUR HEALTH-CARE PROFESSIONAL BECAUSE OF SOMETHING YOU MAY HAVE READ ON THE SITE. THE USE OF ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED ON THE SITE IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
NOTHING STATED OR POSTED ON THE SITE OR AVAILABLE THROUGH ANY SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE, AND MUST NOT BE TAKEN TO BE, THE PRACTICE OF MEDICAL OR COUNSELING CARE. FOR PURPOSES OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE AND COUNSELING INCLUDES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, PSYCHIATRY, PSYCHOLOGY, PSYCHOTHERAPY, OR PROVIDING HEALTH CARE TREATMENT, INSTRUCTIONS, DIAGNOSIS, PROGNOSIS OR ADVICE.
Nothing claimed by BLE, including anything posted on the Site, is intended to be medical advice, nor is it in any way a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. BLE’s weight loss advice is not intended as medical diagnosis or treatment. Susan Peirce Thompson is a professor and a scientist. Her Ph.D. is in Brain and Cognitive Sciences. Susan Peirce Thompson is not now, and never has been, a medical doctor, and does not claim to be one.
BLE Does Not Provide Medical Advice. BLE strongly recommends and encourages you to consult with your medical doctor or other qualified health care professional before beginning any weight loss program or any diet. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking medical advice because of something you have read or heard from BLE. Should you choose not to obtain the consent of your medical doctor or other qualified health care provider and/or work with your physician or other qualified health care provider while using any information received from BLE, you are agreeing to accept full responsibility for your actions.
Consult Often with Your Medical Doctor or Health Care Professional. BLE strongly encourages you to consult with your medical doctor or other qualified health care provider on the food plan and other aspects of the program before you begin the BLE program. BLE, strongly urges you to work with and consult with your medical doctor or other qualified health care provider throughout your weight loss program, particularly if you suffer from any medical conditions. Customer experiences have shown that adopting the BLE plan can create dramatic physiological changes. Therefore, medications may need to be adjusted, and BLE urges you to consult with your doctor throughout your weight loss journey. This is not a promise that your medications will change, just a prediction based on past experiences of BLE customers.
Weight Loss Results Will Vary. No claims about weight loss should ever be taken as being “typical” because the “typical” person on any weight loss program either never begins the program or drops out of the program. Every person's body is unique to them. Therefore, the rate of weight loss on the BLE plan will be different for each person. Weight loss while following the BLE plan can be significant, leading to an amazing transformation. However, this transformation depends fully on the amount of effort that you put into the plan and is not guaranteed.
BLE may cancel or terminate your right to use the Site or any part of the Site at any time without notice. In the event of cancellation or termination, you are no longer authorized to access the part of the Site affected by such cancellation or termination. The restrictions imposed on you with respect to material downloaded from the Site, and the disclaimers and limitations of liabilities set forth in these Terms of Service, shall survive indefinitely.
These Terms of Service shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of BLE and BLE’s respective assigns, successors, heirs, and legal representatives.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, all rights and obligations under these Terms of Service may be freely assigned by BLE.
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. You agree that any dispute raised by you shall be subject to final binding arbitration in Monroe County, NY. In the event of any violation of these Terms of Service by you, BLE also reserves the right to bring an action in state or Federal Court in New York and by agreeing to these Terms of Service, you (1) hereby submit to the jurisdiction of such courts, (2) agree that nothing herein will restrict BLE from seeking equitable relief from such court or any court of competent jurisdiction in circumstances where any act or omission of you could result in irreparable harm for which BLE cannot be compensated in damages and for which specific performance, an injunction or other equitable relief would be an appropriate remedy.
If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Service and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
We reserve the right to cooperate with law enforcement officials and court officials in the investigation or prosecution of any crime or lawsuit. You agree to hold BLE harmless from any consequences or actions taken by BLE in cooperation with such law enforcement investigation or court order.
Class Action Waiver
You may only resolve disputes with BLE on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed.
The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless all relevant parties specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.
In addition to other indemnification obligations contained in these Terms of Service, you agree at all times to defend, indemnify and hold harmless BLE, its affiliates, and their respective successors, transferees, assignees and licensees and their respective parent and subsidiary companies, agents, associates, officers, directors, shareholders and employees of each from and against any and all claims, causes of action, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including legal fees and expenses, arising out of or related to your breach of any obligation, warranty, representation or covenant set forth herein.
