Service Limitations (Nutritional Therapy and Personalised Nutritional Review)

You understand that we do not have medical qualifications and cannot provide diagnose medical conditions, or advice any changes to prescribed medication and/or treatment.  Clients are responsible for contacting their medical health advisers regarding any health concerns and may be referred to them by us.

We base our analysis, feedback and recommendations on the information you provide in your Health and Lifestyle Questionnaire, Food Diary and consultations.  You therefore agree to provide complete, accurate and relevant information in these documents.

The analysis, feedback and recommendations we provide are based on your circumstances and lifestyle, and scientific understanding at the point in time at which they are given.  Alible Nutrition cannot be held responsible for advice not being applicable in the future due to changes in your own circumstances, health or lifestyle, or scientific advances.

Specific results cannot be guaranteed due to the number of contributors involved in health management.  Furthermore, your level of commitment and ability to make the changes advised to your diet and lifestyle will affect the outcomes.

The timescales stated in the packages are approximate, according to the interval between consultations.  The time range given is based on consultations taking place 6-8 weeks apart from the date of the first (initial) consultation.  Therefore, 3 month packages consist of 3 consultations, and 5 month packages consist of 4 consultations.  See below for rescheduling of consultations.

Service Limitations – Business Clients

Our analysis, feedback and recommendations are only relevant to the menu data you provide to us.  You may not use it to reflect the health value of alternative, future or amended menu items.

Payment, Deposits and Cancellations (Nutritional Therapy and Personalised Nutritional Reviews)

You agree to pay the advertised cost at the point of ordering.  We reserve the right to update prices; however we will honour the price advertised at the time you ordered the service during any overlapping period.

Deposits are required at the point of ordering.  This will be redeemed against the cost of the full payment at the initial consultation.  We will not refund any payments if you cancel the order less than two working days prior to the initial consultation.  Standard working days are Monday-Friday, not including bank holidays.  See below re missed consultations, or rescheduling of consulations.

Standard deposit payment methods accepted are PayPal, debit or credit card.  The balance of payment (to be paid at the initial consultation) can be paid by cash, cheque, or by debit or credit card.

Following the payment of the full package balance, a ‘cooling off’ period of 14 working days applies.  If you wish to cancel your package during this time, the balance of payment (i.e. the package price, less the deposit paid previously) will be returned; after this time, no refund will be given.  If you wish to ‘downgrade’ the package you have selected, the difference in package price will be refunded, if we receive your request during this 14 working day period.

Payment, Deposits and Refunds (Business Clients (Day Nursery/Canteen Menu Review))

You agree to pay the advertised cost at the point of ordering.  Payment should be made in full at the point of ordering.

Refunds for cancellations:

  • If you cancel the order more than 10 working days prior to the initial consultation, a full refund will be given; if you cancel less than 10 working days prior to the initial consultation a 50% refund will be given.
  • If you cancel between the initial consultation and the first revised menu review meeting a 25% refund will be given.

It is expected that the revised menu review will take place no longer than 12 months after the feedback meeting (i.e. the second consultation), based on the possibility of seasonal menu cycles.

All consultations can be rearranged by up to 2 months from the date they have been originally planned – if they do not take place within this timeframe, the consultation will be forfeited and no refund will be issued (see above re refunds for cancellations).

Standard working days are Monday-Friday, not including bank holidays.

Prices may be updated without prior notification.

Standard payment methods accepted are PayPal, debit or credit card.

Consultation Re-scheduling/Missed Consultations (Nutritional Therapy and Personalised Nutritional Review)

We accept that consultation appointments may need to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances however, you should rearrange consultations at the earliest opportunity.  Consultations can be rescheduled to a new date up to 3 weeks from the planned date (if you need to reschedule the same consultation more than once, this timeframe applies to the original appointment date).  If the consultation cannot be held within this time, the appointment will be forfeited with no refund issued; any following consultations that have been arranged and/or form part of the package will continue as planned.  Consultations that are rescheduled for longer than one week beyond the original planned date, may require subsequent consultations to be rearranged also to ensure a 6-8 week timeframe in between consultations.

Face-to-face consultations may be changed to online consultations if needed to meet the above rescheduling requirements.

If you miss a consultation without prior notice, this consultation will be forfeited with no refund issued.  Any remaining consultations that form part of your package will continue as planned.
