FITera Terms And Conditions Of Use
To qualify for the $1,500 "success story reward", you must:
- Take a before photo holding a current newspaper (to verify the date) and then an after photo (with newspaper on that date) once you’ve lost at least 30 lbs. Send your before and after photos and a brief written testimonial about losing weight on our program to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The 30 lbs lost must be fat, as we do not encourage losing muscle or water weight. This can be determined by having your body fat measured one of the following ways:
- using the hydrostatic weighing method, which can be administered at a local hospital, clinic, or university.
- using the skinfold caliper method, administered by a certified personal trainer. Please scan and send your before and after results email@example.com or mail to 12042 SE Sunnyside Rd, Suite 708 Clackamas, OR 97015
- Consult your doctor and get written approval before starting the program.
- Be willing to share your results and success story with others.

Effect of Termination
Any termination of this Agreement automatically terminates all rights and licenses granted to You under this Agreement, including all rights to use the Website and Services. Upon termination, FITera may, but has no obligation to, in FITera’s sole discretion, rescind any services, including without limitation registered agent services, and/or delete from FITera’s systems all Your Personal Information and any other files or information that You made available to FITera or that otherwise relate to Your use of the Website or Services.

Upon termination, all rights and obligations created by this Agreement will terminate, except that Sections 1-3, 6-13, 16-26, 28-29 will survive any termination of this Agreement. For clarification, termination of this Agreement will not relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees owed FITera.
All notices required or permitted to be given under this Agreement must be in writing. FITera shall give any notice by email sent to the most recent email address, if any, provided by the intended recipient to FITera. YOU BEAR THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF ENSURING THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE WITH FITERA IS ACCURATE AND CURRENT, AND NOTICE TO YOU SHALL BE DEEMED EFFECTIVE UPON THE SENDING BY FITERA OF AN EMAIL TO THAT ADDRESS. You shall give any notice to FITera by means of: (i) hand delivery; (ii) certified U.S. mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid; or (iii) overnight courier, each as send to 10121 SE Sunnyside Rd, Suite 208 Clackamas, OR 97015.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between FITera and You concerning Your use of the Website and Services. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of FITera or by the unilateral amendment of this Agreement by FITera and by the posting by FITera of such amended version. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. This Agreement and all of Your rights and obligations hereunder will not be assignable or transferable by You without the prior written consent of FITera. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. You and FITera are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Except for the FITera Parties and the Indemnified Parties as and to the extent set forth in Sections 17, 21 and 27(e), and FITera’s licensors and suppliers as and to the extent expressly set forth in Section 23, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third party rights by You would cause irreparable injury to FITera and FITera’s licensors and suppliers, and would therefore entitle FITera or FITera’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief. The headings in this Agreement are for the purpose of convenience only and shall not limit, enlarge, or affect any of the covenants, terms, conditions or provisions of this Agreement.
