MyWeightWorld and its affiliates attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, MyWeightWorld does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by MyWeightWorld itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

You may return any unopened product (except food, supplement or vitamins) with accompanying receipt within thirty days of purchase and receive a full refund by mail to My Weight World 2314 S. Rt 59 #170 Plainfield, IL 60586. Unfortunately, we cannot refund postage and handling. My Weight World also cannot refund opened or unopened food, supplement or vitamin products.

Cancellation and Limitation of Orders

Please note that there may be certain orders that we are unable to accept and must cancel. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. For your convenience, you will not be charged until your payment method is authorized, the order information is verified for accuracy and your order is shipped.

Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase; inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information; product or ingredient restrictions mandated by local, state, national or international regulations; or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance group. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card in the amount of the charge.

Prices

The prices displayed on this Site are quoted in U.S. dollars and are valid and effective only within the United States, and such prices do not include shipping and handling or sales taxes, if applicable, which will be added to your total invoice price. You are responsible for the payment of any shipping and handling charges and state and local sales or use taxes that may apply to your order. International shipment rates vary based on total package weight and final destination. All pricing does not include duties, insurance costs, tariffs, or value-added taxes. If assessed, these charges are the responsibility of the package recipient, who will be billed for them by the local Customs office.

Pricing or Typographical Errors

We work hard to provide accurate product and pricing information. However, pricing or typographical errors may occur. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to an error in pricing or product information, MyWeightWorld shall have the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. If an item is incorrectly priced, we will either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.

HERBS AND NATURAL SUPPLEMENTS

Herbs, botanicals, and dietary supplements can contain potent chemicals, and should be taken with the same care as you would a prescription from your doctor.

We at MyWeightWorld encourage you to speak to your health care provider about each dietary supplement you are taking (including simple vitamins!) Many herbs and botanicals, as well as natural dietary supplements, can interfere with prescription medicines, or cause negative reactions. Certain medical conditions and allergies can also cause negative reactions with dietary supplement use.

Many supplements contain active ingredients that can have strong effects in the body. Taking a combination of supplements, using these products together with medicine, or substituting them in place of prescribed medicines could lead to harmful, even life-threatening results. Also, some supplements can have unwanted effects before, during, and after surgery. It is important to let your doctor and other health professionals know about the vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and other products you are taking, especially before surgery.

Whatever your choice, supplements should not replace prescribed medications or the variety of foods important to a healthful diet.
