8.4 Products will be dispatched by Fitbug (or one of our fulfilment partners) to your delivery address as soon as reasonably possible after acceptance of your order and we will endeavour to confirm dispatch to you by email. Delivery charges will be made in accordance with your location and you will be informed of the relevant charge on the Site before you confirm your order.

In the discretion of the relevant partner, your membership of the relevant scheme or programme may terminate automatically and you may be awarded as a final award - a number of points based on your average award level up to the date of termination (or the average for a representative section of members if you are within your first month of use of the loyalty scheme/programme in relation to Fitbug).

10.2 Fitbug may offer specific guarantees with specific Products, and these will be set out in manuals with the Products.
11.1 Some Services (such as membership of Fitbug) are offered on a subscription basis. Subscription to such Services may be available for varying commitment periods (e.g. 3 months, 6 months or one year) and you may have a choice of paying an up-front fee for such periods or to pay monthly or on an annual basis as stated on the Site. Additionally, we may offer promotional subscription Services, which offer a one off up-front payment fee (e.g. for 3 months) with a commitment to subscribe for e.g. the following 9 months. Monthly subscription may be available with a twelve month commitment or with no commitment. Payment for the Services will be made via the Site in accordance with the procedure and pricing explained on the Site.

11.3 If you choose a subscription with a fixed commitment period (e.g. 6 months) then, whether it is pay-monthly or pay up-front, at the end of that period your subscription will automatically convert into a pay-monthly subscription (at the same rate band at which you were paying during the fixed commitment period) which can be cancelled by us or you on 28 days notice (by contacting us at email@example.com). Where such notice is given 28 days or more prior to the end of the fixed commitment period, the subscription will end upon expiry of that period.
11.4 We will collect all monthly fees due (including those due after the end of a fixed commitment period) from the debit/credit card you tell us about upon registration. As stated above, we may suspend or cancel any Services, including your subscription, in the event of problems with the debit/credit card.
11.5 Subject to your cooling off right stated in clause 12 and your statutory consumer rights (which remain unaffected by any of these terms), subscription fees are non-refundable. Subscriptions with fixed commitment periods may not be cancelled until all the monthly payments have been made. Any attempt to cancel such payment may result in Fitbug deducting the balance of payments due immediately.
11.6 If your subscription begins with a promotional period, you will be automatically charged for the subscription rates to which you agreed on expiry of that promotional period unless you email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
11.7 The Bug Care service - which may not be available to you - entitles you to pre-purchase one replacement bug once per 12 month period at a discount to the normal price, which we send to you if you notify us (e.g. in the event that your bug is either lost or stolen). A Bug Care form will need to be completed. It is not an insurance service.
11.8 Any corporate or group membership rates are only available to employees/members of the specified organization or group (or other parties such as contract staff and/or friends or family if the offer is specifically extended to such parties). Any attempt to subscribe to such a plan without entitlement to do so may result in Fitbug deducting the balance of payments due immediately.
12.1 Services: You may cancel Services including any subscription within 7 days after the day of ordering by contacting us by email at email@example.com or by writing to 'After Sales' at the address set out in these terms and conditions, save that this right will cease once you use your password to log on to the members only part of the Site or to access the Services ordered (or subscribed for) for the first time during that 7 day period.
12.2 Products: After you receive any Products you will have a 7 day "cooling off" period during which you have a right to cancel the order, and return the Products, without charge. You may exercise that right by calling our Customer Services Team on 0845 688 3348 (or such other number stated on the Site or with the Product), notifying us of your cancellation.

16.1 Our "lose 6 inches" and other promotions have terms and conditions attached which you will need to agree to when taking up the promotions. They are in addition to these general terms and conditions.
16.2 It is important that you understand that "body shape" and "overall body shape" and similar terms mean a combination of measurements taken from your chest, arms, legs, hips and waist. It does not refer to any one single measurement.
16.3 Where a promotion guarantees money back you must make any claim within 1 week of the end of the relevant period (for example, a "lose 6 inches off your body shape in 12 weeks" must be claimed within the 13th week).
16.4 Where a promotion guarantees money back the refund will be the monthly fees paid for your online subscription, and shall exclude the cost of your original members pack and the non-promotional retail price of the Fitbug you have received (neither of which are not refundable save as set out in our general terms and conditions below).
16.5 Finally, once again, guarantees only apply if you keep your side of the bargain as set out in the promotion terms and conditions.
