      11.3.8.          access to the Pioneer Programme is conditional on the Pioneer agreeing to certain terms (including third party-terms) which shall be notified to Pioneer during the Pioneer Programme registration process.

11.4.    Pioneer Programme refunds. Notwithstanding clause 6 of Vivobarefoot’s Terms of Sale (Cancellation, Return and Refund), Vivobarefoot’s 100 day hassle free refund policy does not apply to the Pioneer Programme. A Pioneer who has paid to access the Pioneer Programme may request a refund up until their have had their feet scanned under the Pioneer Programme.
