Service terms and conditions


Please read these Service Terms and Conditions carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law and set out the terms under which Immogenics makes the Service available to you.

1. Service
Immogenics (Guernsey) Limited (“Immogenics”) whose registered office is at 3rd Floor, Wolverton Place, Market Square, Guernsey, St Peter’s Port, Channel Islands GY1 1HB provides a blood testing and dietary analysis service (the “Service”) through its website located on the Internet at www.immogenics.com (the “Site”).

Immogenics will liaise with other appropriate companies to help to deliver the Service to you.

The Service will involve, in return for your payment to Immogenics, taking a sample of your blood, a procedure that will be carried out by a suitably qualified person.

This sample will then be sent to BioMedia International, who operate a blood analysis laboratory on Immogenic’s behalf, for analysis and the results sent back to you.

2. Price
The price payable for the Service is currently £350 (inclusive of VAT).

Further information about Immogenics and the Service is included on the Immogenics website and if there is anything which you do not understand, or if you want more information or wish to make a complaint, please contact Immogenics using the contact details on the “Contact Us” page of the Site.

3. Acceptance

There will be no contract of any kind between you and Immogenics unless and until the “Order Confirmation” from Immogenics is despatched to you via your preferred communication route (as notified to Immogenics during the booking procedure). Your order is an offer to Immogenics to provide you with the Service. Nothing that Immogenics says or does will amount to any acceptance of that offer until Immogenics despatches to you the “Order Confirmation” via your preferred communication route. At any point up until then, Immogenics may decline to provide the Service to you without giving any reason. At the moment that the “Order Confirmation” from Immogenics is despatched to you via your preferred communication route (and not before), a contract will be made between you and Immogenics, and you will be charged for the Service.

4. Providing the Service


4.1 Blood Sample
Immogenics will aim to arrange for you to have your blood sample taken on the date and time of your choosing, as notified to Immogenics during the booking procedure. The date and time of your appointment will be set out in the “Order Confirmation” Immogenics despatches to you via your preferred communication route.

However, please note that, although Immogenics will make all reasonable endeavours to accommodate your requested date and time, this may not always be possible and blood sample appointments may be subject to short notice cancellations or postponements. In the event that Immogenics cannot accommodate your preferred date and time, it will inform you via your preferred communication route as soon as possible and will suggest an alternative date and time. If Immogenics cannot arrange a suitable alternative date and time for you to have your blood sample taken, then the contract between Immogenics and you will be treated as at an end and all monies paid by you for the Service refunded to you or credited to your debit or credit card by Immogenics as soon as reasonably practicable.

Please note that your sample may fail our quality control tests for reasons including; insufficient blood in the sample, courier errors & delay, illness or infection damaging the sample before testing and laboratory equipment failure. In the event of one of these events, we will arrange for a new sample to be taken.

4.2 Test Results and Dietary Analysis Report
Immogenics will aim to provide you with your Test Results and Dietary Analysis Report (as well as further information and guidance relating to your suggested diet) (the “Results Pack”) via your preferred communication route as soon as possible after your blood sample appointment and, in any event, no later than four weeks after your appointment.

If your Results Pack does not arrive within four weeks of your blood sample appointment, please contact Immogenics as soon as possible using the contact details on the “Contact Us” page of the Site so that arrangements can be made to issue a new Results Pack to you.

5. Disclaimer
Please read the help-notes enclosed with the Results Pack carefully before commencing the diet plan prescribed in the Dietary Analysis Report. If you are already using a medically prescribed diet or taking any medication, or if you are pregnant, please consult your doctor prior to commencing the diet. Please note that you should not make any changes to your medication without first consulting your doctor and obtaining his or her consent. If you are suffering from any medical condition at all you should consult your doctor before commencing the diet.

6. Cancellation/Refunds
You have the right to cancel your order for the Service for a period of 7 working days beginning on the day after the day on which you receive the “Order Confirmation” despatched to you by Immogenics via your preferred communication route. You can exercise your right to cancel the order by contacting Immogenics using the contact details on the “Contact Us” page of the Site. In the event that you decide to cancel your order, the contract between Immogenics and you will be treated as at an end and all monies paid by you for the Service will be refunded to you or credited to your debit or credit card by Immogenics as soon as reasonably practicable.

7. Payment
You can pay for the Service by any Mastercard or Visa credit card, Switch or Delta debit card. Your credit/debit card details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of unauthorised access or disclosure. Authority for payment must be given at the time of your order. You will not be charged for the Service until the “Order Confirmation” from Immogenics is despatched to you via your preferred communication route.
Immogenics’ liability to you in connection with any order will not exceed the total price charged for the Service.

8. General
These Service Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and any disputes will be decided only by the English courts.

If any of these Service Terms and Conditions is held by any court or competent authority to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, this will not affect the validity of the remaining Service Terms and Conditions which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
