About the Terms
Access to and use of any of the BodyMedia® web sites (including, but not limited to, gowearfit.com, sensewear.com, bodymedia.com) both within the USA and internationally is provided by BodyMedia on the following terms:
By using this site you agree to be bound by these terms, which shall take effect immediately on your first use of the web site. If you do not agree to be bound by all of the following terms please do not access, use and/or contribute to the site.
Use of the Web Site
You agree to use the web site only for lawful purposes, and in a way that does not infringe the rights of, restrict or inhibit anyone else's use and enjoyment of the site. Prohibited behavior includes harassing or causing distress or inconvenience to any person, transmitting obscene or offensive content or disrupting the normal flow of dialogue within the site. Do not post any content that violates any applicable local, state, national, or international law.
If you choose a subscription option with recurring payments (including any pre-paid subscription option which reverts to a monthly payment plan at the expiration of the pre-paid period), you agree that BodyMedia may automatically charge the subscription fee to your credit or charge card at the beginning of each period. Your service access will not be established until BodyMedia has verified that the credit card information you provide us for payment is accurate and that your credit card account is in good standing. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or if a charge is refunded for any reason, including chargeback, we reserve the right to either suspend or terminate your subscription, access, and/or account. You agree that in the event we are unable to collect the fees you owe us for the products or services specified in your order, we may take any other steps we deem necessary to collect such fees from you, and that you will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by us in connection with such collection activity, including collection fees, interest, court costs and attorneys' fees. BodyMedia may, at its discretion, change the BodyMedia subscription fees, restocking fees and any other applicable fees, from time to time, and charge fees (which BodyMedia may also change) for features and functionalities that are not a part of the BodyMedia service. BodyMedia will notify you with reasonable advance notice communicated to you through a posting on the applicable site or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including electronic mail or conventional mail); you may obtain a list of the applicable fees currently in effect at any time by contacting BodyMedia Customer Support. You are responsible for reviewing your credit card statement for billing accuracy. You have 90 days to dispute any billing that you feel is inaccurate. If you do not contact BodyMedia within 90 days of the disputed billing date, BodyMedia will not be responsible for any billing errors. Subscriptions can be canceled through the My Account page, cancellation section of our website upon 30 days prior notice. You may therefore – depending on the timing of your cancellation – receive a final monthly charge.
All orders placed through the web site are subject to BodyMedia's acceptance, which is in its sole discretion. Without limitation, this means that BodyMedia may refuse to accept or may cancel any order, whether or not the order has been confirmed, for any or no reason, in its sole discretion, and without liability to you or any third party. If your credit card has already been charged for an order that is subsequently cancelled, BodyMedia shall issue a credit to your credit card account.
BodyMedia will ship your order within 2 business days after the order has been placed assuming all ordered items are in stock. If you have ordered multiple items and some items are on backorder, we will hold the shipment until all items become available. This shipment will be delivered using the shipment method originally selected with the order.
Any purchase less than the value of a gift certificate causes the unused balance to be placed in the account of the gift certificate recipient for use in a future transaction up to expiration date.
Gift certificates are valid for 365 days from date of purchase and are only redeemable at the site where purchased.
Gift certificates cannot be used or redeemed without the authorized code, cannot be redeemed for cash, cannot be replaced if they are lost or stolen, cannot be used or redeemed toward previous purchases, cannot be used or redeemed to purchase other gift certificates, cannot be resold, and are not refundable.
We will not accept any returns on skins or fashion straps (accessories) - all sales on those items are final. If any other item is returned within 30 days of purchase in original condition, BodyMedia will issue you a full refund based on your method of payment. Products must be packed in their original packaging including all accessories, manuals, and documentation. Please contact Customer Support prior to returning any product to receive a Return Authorization form. You will be responsible for, and pre-pay, all return shipping charges and shall assume all risk of loss or damage to product while in transit to BodyMedia. We recommend that you use a traceable method of shipping for your protection.

BodyMedia is not responsible for such content or the privacy practices of such third Parties. In order to use a specific service, you may choose to allow the third-party service provider to retrieve, provide, and/or modify personal and other information in your account or otherwise share your information with the service provider. Once you enable a specific third-party service provider to access your account, the service provider may continue to access your account until you affirmatively disable access.
