Terms & Conditions

This agreement applies between you, the user of this website, and Vitagen-x Ltd, the owner of the website. By purchasing any of our testing suites you confirm that you have read and agreed to these terms and conditions. 

Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the information to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss it. 

Please pay particular attention to the following clauses:  1.2 (which makes it clear that the information provided by Vitagen-x is not for medical purposes); 2 (important information regarding the nature of our tests and results), 4 (which refers to our Disclaimer), and 12 (which limits our liability to you).

1. The Company. Vitagen-x Ltd.

1.1 What is Vitagen-x? Vitagen-x provides curated functional testing solutions and advice which is tailored to your lifestyle, biology and environment.

1.2 Vitagen-x does not provide medical advice or diagnose any specific medical conditions and should not be used to alter or replace existing or subsequent medical advice.  It cannot be used to prevent disease, or diagnose, monitor, treat or compensate for any disease, illness or medical condition.  Nor can it be used to control conception, or investigate, replace or modify anatomy or any physiological process. The information provided by Vitagen-x is intended for educational purposes only to allow you to better understand your health and risks associated with your genetic and other biomarker results. If you have any specific concerns about your health status, please contact a qualified healthcare practitioner.

1.3 The authors of the Vitagen-x reports have used their best efforts and drawn from the most relevant and recent available scientific research in preparing this content and make no representation or warranties with respect to the accuracy, applicability, fitness or completeness of the contents therein. The information provided is not exhaustive or absolute, and may not be applicable to individual circumstances should the information be subsequently deemed inaccurate or out of date by virtue of new scientific advances. Once your report is provided to you, there will be no further information, feedback, or updates provided to you unless you conclude a separate arrangement for an update regarding new developments. 

1.4 You may collect blood, microbiome, urine and/or saliva samples that will be provided to and tested by our partner laboratories in the UK for indicators (including genetic indicators) of aspects of your health and well-being.  This will only be processed if you provide your consent under the consent document we provide in the test kit. 

1.5 Our well-being experts will then profile your results using our proprietary technology, to provide you with personalised lifestyle recommendations including diet, exercise and sleep. 

1.6 You must be at least 18 years of age in order to register. Do not attempt to order unless you are 18 or older.

2. Biomarker Data

2.1 The test samples you send to our partner labs for analysis will be analysed to produce data related to your genotype and other biomarkers (“Biomarker  Data”). We will share with you representations of findings from this data by means of emailed report/s.

2.2 Biomarker Data, like the results of any DNA,  genotype or other biomarker-based test results, has limitations. For example:

(a) We measure many points of information derived from your samples, but only a small percentage of them relate to human traits;

(b) many ethnic groups differ or are not included at all in many genetic studies, and some scientific studies may be based solely on research of one race or gender, so as a result some of the interpretations that we provide may not apply to you.

(c) it is not possible to test for every potentially impactful biomarker 

2.3 Further development in the future regarding the carrying out of genetic and biological test research may change how your Biomarker Data is interpreted by us and our partner labs. If your Biomarker Data tells you that you do not have an elevated risk for a particular condition, you should not assume that you are entirely protected from this condition. Similarly, if your Biomarker Data tells you that you are at higher risk for a particular condition, it does not mean that you will develop this condition. If you have concerns or questions regarding any of this, you should contact your doctor.

2.4 The limits referred to in clauses 2.2 and 2.3 mean that Biomarker Data does not give a complete or enduring picture of your heath or well-being. It is only one aspect of your entire health and well-being outlook and should not be assumed to be the determinant of any particular course of action. Environmental factors and lifestyle choices can also be significant indicators which need to be borne in mind when considering any course of action.

3. Risks

3.1 Before you subscribe you need to be certain that it is the right thing for you. The test results, including the genetic data from your saliva test, may be a surprise for you. That surprise may be unwelcome and troubling, and there might be no practical way for you to take action to change the findings.

3.2 Your samples might not produce any meaningful results – for example, our partner labs may get an insufficient sample that prevents processing your biomaterials for results or human error may result in a mistake.  Some samples collected and processed may be not be able to be interpreted accurately or correctly.  If that happens, we will contact you to obtain new samples.

3.3 Biomarker Data that you share with other people could be used against your best interests. Therefore, you should be extremely cautious when sharing your Biomarker Data. If you have any doubts, take legal advice.

3.4 Biomarker Data that you choose to share with your doctor can become part of your medical records and can potentially be accessed by others including health care providers or insurance companies. 

3.5 Disclosing your Biomarker Data to anyone  – especially employers or insurers – can be used against your interests either at the time of disclosure or in the future.

8.3 Note that blood samples must be dispatched to our partner lab in accordance with the instructions, within 1 day of the sample being taken. You must ensure that none of the samples are exposed to temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius.

8.4 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the kit is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund.

8.8 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We will contact you to ask for this information if you do not provide it within 2 weeks of the dispatch of the kit.  If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, you will not be entitled to a refund. 

9. Cancellations & Returns

9.1 As we operate a testing service, it is not possible to offer a true returns/ cancellations policy. However, every effort will be made to accommodate the cancellation of your order, providing your test kit has not already been shipped out. If your kit has already been shipped, we may refund you less the cost of shipping provided we receive the kit back in good condition.

9.2 No refunds will be considered after the lab has received your samples or if the kit box has been damaged or tampered with.

9.3 Tell us you want to cancel your order in writing: support@vitagen-x.com.   

9.4 We will provide you with instructions on where to return the kit box. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days.

9.5 When we will pay the costs of return:

(a) if you are ending the contract because of an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.

In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.   

9.6 How we will refund you.  We will refund you the initial fee charged to you at the time of your order, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.

9.7 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind during the 14-day cooling off period: 

(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount. 

(b) We may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of information ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract. If you cancel the contract after having dispatched samples to our partner labs, we will deduct 100{39f60ca1238b4bc98be35729484c2f1837fe8b895852e01f7ee1ddd7b13c54b0} in respect of the costs of dispatching and processing the samples. We consider this is reasonable given our own costs of instructing our third party labs to process the samples.

9.8 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind, then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the kit back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent it back to us.
