Additional terms for Slimming World Online members

The following terms are in addition to Slimming World’s general terms and conditions above.

Membership information

Your right to cancel your online membership

If you become a member of Slimming World Online via this website you have a short "cooling off period" when you have the right to cancel your membership. The right finishes 7 days after enrolling (having not entered the members' area) or after building your profile, setting your personal weight loss target and entering the members' homepage – whichever occurs soonest.

The right to cancel your membership ends once you have begun to use the Slimming World Online service. Information that follows our profile building and target setting process constitutes part of our services to our members. Because our service starts immediately on entering the members' homepage, by accessing this information you will have utilised our services and your right to cancel your new membership will have ended.

Transferring or pausing membership

In exceptional circumstances, online membership can be paused and resumed at a later date.

Transferral of online membership to group membership can be arranged using vouchers for your personal group attendance. We endeavour to provide vouchers that reflect, as closely as possible, the value of online membership remaining, however we’re unable to refund any difference.

Gold members wishing to transfer their membership should keep their Food Optimising book pack in order to use these at their Slimming World group each week.
To request a pause or transfer, please contact us by letter or email (stating your full name, registered e-mail address and membership number)

Re-subscriptions and cancellation

Once you have become a member (minimum 3 months subscription) you can cancel your monthly re-subscriptions at any time by giving us 2 weeks notice. Until we receive this notice we will continue to deduct your subscription from your debit or credit card each month.

If you wish to cancel, please use the Cancel Future Subscriptions button in my Slimming World > Update my details, scroll down to the Update my payment details, account status link.  Alternatively, let us know by letter or email (stating your full name, registered e-mail address and membership number) at:

Alfreton

United Kingdom

If you do not receive a response within 7 days, please contact us again or check your membership status on the Edit Payment Details page.

Although it is each member’s responsibility to cancel their membership, if Slimming World Online is not used for 42 days, future subscriptions are cancelled automatically. The website can be accessed for any remaining membership, and membership can be continued on a monthly basis by visiting the My Slimming World section to re-enter payment details or continued by using one of our special 3, 6 or 12 month re-subscription offers.

We will give you 4 weeks notice if we wish to terminate the provision of the Slimming World Online services to you. Upon termination we will cease charging you and we will not collect any further payments.
