- Additional Features
Additional Features Generally
From time to time, we may add additional Features to the Platform. Any additional Features we add:
are provided on an ‘as is’ basis and are not guaranteed to achieve any particular outcome;
will only supplement the functionality of the Platform, and are not designed to be used independently of the other Features (unless otherwise stipulated in writing);
may be removed, altered or otherwise changed at any time at our complete discretion.
Wellbeing Monitor and Physical Literacy
The Wellbeing Monitor is a simple ‘before and after’ activity integrated into the Platform which allows users to ‘check in’ about their current emotional state.
Physical Literacy statistics are an extension of the Wellbeing Monitor. They are primarily collected through the use of regular surveys of Participants within the Platform which ask questions about their motivation, confidence and perceived competence to be physically active.
The Wellbeing Monitor and Physical Literacy Features are:
designed to be used in conjunction with other features of the Platform;
a non-complex measurement of approximate Participant feelings;
designed to help establish a pattern of regular self-assessment;
one of several ways in which the Organisation can identify Participants who may need additional assistance; and
entirely reliant on the data reported by the Participant.
The Wellbeing Monitor and Physical Literacy Features are not:
an advanced psychological assessment tool;
indicative of any particular underlying issue or issues;
designed to be used independently of the rest of the Platform;
a replacement for face-to-face conversation with a Participant, or professional assistance; or
an adequate intervention for Participants with significant health and wellbeing issues.
Limitations and Acknowledgements
If you are an Organisation, you acknowledge, understand and agree that:
we are merely the developers of the Platform, and do not monitor your Accounts, nor the accounts of Participants, for any issues;
where there are concerning statistics or indicators shown by any Feature, the duty is on you and your employees to ensure that any concerning statistics or indicators are acted upon;
while Features may provide valuable insights into the physical and mental wellbeing of Participants, they should not be relied exclusively to assess the health of any Participant;
you will ensure that any statistics or insights provided by Features are appropriately assessed and balanced with assistance, advice and insight from professionals qualified in the relevant field; and
you indemnify us fully from any Claim, damage or injury which results from your failure to act on any insights provided by a feature, or pair those insights with advice from qualified professionals.

Content may be delivered by Third Party Providers in a number of forms, including (but not limited to):
Subscriptions (with Subscription Periods);
Third Party Content providers may set fees for their content based on both the value that they attach to that content and the form in which the content is delivered.
