Gainful Health Inc. (“Gainful Health,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) welcomes you. We’re very excited that you have decided to access and use our services (the “Services”), which are made available to you through our website located at gogainful.com (the “Website”).
More simply put: Hey, thanks for stopping by. These are our Terms of Service (every good company has them).
THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM.
More simply put: We’ll cover this below.
You acknowledge and agree that Gainful Health does not provide any form of medical care, medical opinion, medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, and that Gainful Health does not evaluate the need to seek medical attention, through the Website and the Services. The Website, the Services and the Content are for informational purposes only, and are not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. You should not use the information on the Website for diagnosing or treating a health problem or disease, or prescribing any medication or other treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider before taking any medication or nutritional, herbal or homeopathic supplement and with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Website, the Services and/or the Content. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. Reliance on the Website, the Services and the Content is solely at your own risk. Information provided on the Website and the use of any products or services purchased from our Website by you DOES NOT create a doctor-patient relationship between you and any of the health professionals affiliated with our Website. Information and statements regarding dietary supplements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
More simply put: Look, we’re not doctors. We’re not a hospital. Heck, we can’t even give anything that remotely resembles medical advice. Always talk to a real health professional BEFORE you use our products and services. Everything you get from us just a recommendation. This goes for our Registered Dietitians Nutritionists, too. Oh, and 911 is for emergencies.
Through the Services, we help you to build your own personalized protein powder (“Personalized Protein Powder”) that we deliver to you in packages on a subscription basis (“Subscription”).
We provide Visitors and Customers with access to the Website and the Services as described below.
Visitors. Visitors, as the term implies, are people who do not register with us, but want to explore the Website. No login is required for Visitors. Visitors can: (i) view all publicly-available content on the Website; (ii) e-mail us, and (iii) chat with us via our website.
Customers. Login is required for all Customers. Customers can do all things that Visitors can do, and can also access their personal account information, post Customer Content and use the Services.
Gainful Health is under no obligation to accept any individual as a Customer, and may accept or reject any registration in its sole and complete discretion.
More simply put: Visitors don’t have to log in to poke around the website. Customers must log in, and logging in gets you the good stuff. Also, we can block you from logging in. We don’t even have to tell you why. (Hint: just be nice and we won’t block you)
(a) Product Descriptions. Our Website contains descriptions of dietary supplements. We attempt to be as accurate as possible with the descriptions of the supplements that are made available to you through the Services (collectively, the “Products”). However, we make no warranties that the Product descriptions and any other content are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a Product offered by us is not as described, your sole remedy is to notify our customer support team. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, suspend, or discontinue the sale of any Product with or without notice and we will not incur any obligation as a result of such change.
More simply put: Protein powder is technically a dietary supplement. We do our best to describe this dietary supplement accurately, but we can’t guarantee anything. Please let us know if something seems wrong about the product. Lastly, we can change and/or stop any product anytime without telling anyone. We’ll try to let you know before we do anything that drastic, though.
(b) Shipping. Our packages are shipped via USPS Priority Mail and packages are delivered between 5-12 business days after ordering. In the event of shipping delays, please expect to be contacted by a representative of the Gainful Health team.
More simply put: C’mon, seriously?
(c) Return Policy. At Gainful Health we are committed to providing you with the highest quality products, and making your health and wellness our number one priority. Similarly, all of our products are custom formulated for the individual. For this reason, we maintain strict quality control standards and do not re-use or re-sell anything once it ships from our warehouse. This is entirely to ensure your health & safety. As a result, once an order ships, all sales are final. This is part of the reason why we are as transparent and flexible as possible. We love our products and believe you will too! If you have any concerns though, we're always happy to help. You can contact us using the information below: By e-mail: email@example.com Phone: +1 (805) 768-4205
More simply put: We personalize our products specifically for you. That’s why we can’t accept a return in the same way a t-shirt company could accept a return. When your product ships, it’s yours – for better or for worse. That said, we will go to the ends of the earth to make sure you have a good experience, so please reach out.

In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement or the Services or any other products or services provided by us (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website http://www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent Gainful Health from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect Gainful Health’s proprietary interests.
More simply put: If legal action is taken, either party can choose to work things out using a neutral 3rd party (arbitration). This helps to avoid litigation in court, which is costly and time-consuming for everyone involved. Once either party chooses arbitration, no party is allowed to pursue the matter in court.
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS CUSTOMER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
More simply put: No class-action lawsuits. You can bring claims against us only as an individual.
This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. If this Agreement is terminated in accordance with the Termination provision above, such termination shall not affect the validity of the following provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect: “Subscription Fees, Payments and Automatic Renewals,” “Intellectual Property,” “Communications with Us,” “No Warranties; Limitation of Liability,” “Indemnification,” “Termination of the Agreement,” “Binding Arbitration,” “Class Action Waiver,” and “Miscellaneous.”
Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings and “More simply put” sections are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
More simply put: If this Terms of Services Agreement is terminated (we can do that, see above), all the portions of the agreement in quotations above are still applicable. If any part of this agreement is not enforced, it doesn’t waive that part of the agreement. If we make an exception to any part of this agreement, it has to be done in writing in an explicit agreement between you and us. This agreement overrules anything we may say or write outside this agreement.
Lastly, all of the sections titled “More simply put” are just for reference. They’re not legal statements. We hope you find them helpful :)
