Your right to access or use the App can be terminated if you violate these Terms. We reserve the right to revise these Terms at any time.  Your continued use of the App shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved. Please check back periodically to review any changes to the Terms. Please see Section 13 below regarding your legal rights in any dispute involving our App.

1. Our App

The App is designed to allow you to learn from other users and see how people with apparently similar characteristics are treated. In addition, the App allows you to directly interact with users who are apparently similar to you to discuss various health matters. We select people who are apparently similar to you based on the medical records and additional information that they have voluntarily shared with us via the App.

Please note that any information you share with us is displayed to other users as an avatar, on an anonymous and non-identifiable basis. Please be careful with your privacy. Do not use an identifiable user nickname and do not provide any personally identifiable information when interacting with other users as part of using the App. PLEASE NOTE that although the App aims to present people with similar characteristics to yours, you should take into account that different people respond in a different manner to treatments and that each person has a different background and different problems that may affect their treatment.

Any information presented via the App (whether from another user, physicians and other health care providers, or otherwise through the App), should be treated as general information and not as medical advice or recommendation for treatment or as a substitute for medical treatment.

Please note that all information presented regarding medications are summaries and do not contain all possible information about those products. For more complete information about those products or your specific health needs, ask your healthcare professional. Always seek the advice of your healthcare professional if you have any questions about a product or your medical condition. Information presented via the App is not intended as individual medical advice and does not substitute for the knowledge and judgment of your healthcare professional. This information does not contain any assurances that a particular product is safe, effective or appropriate for you. The App may contain information about products that may not be approved, cleared, or authorized in your geographic region or location. You may see information about products that are not available in your locale.

Before taking any action that may affect your health, please consult your physician.

The App is not intended to provide medical advice and does not constitute a substitute for professional advice. You may not rely on the information in the App for diagnosis or treatment.

This App is not suitable for medical emergencies, and if an emergency situation occurs, medical attention should be sought immediately by calling 911 (or other applicable emergency number in your locale). Please note that we do not recommend tests, treatments, doctors, therapists, products or procedures, nor do we recommend relying on recommendations or opinions or other information that may be provided through the App. Reliance on any information provided through the App, whether by other users, physicians and other health care providers, or otherwise is solely at your own risk.

All information you provide or that is otherwise provided to us in connection with your use of the App, must be true, accurate, current, and complete and you agree to update your information as necessary to maintain its accuracy. You are responsible for keeping your password or other credentials for the App secret and secure.   You agree to immediately notify us of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your password or other credentials or any other breach of security.  

You agree that we have no obligation to provide you with any support or maintenance in connection with the App, and that we reserve the right, at any time, to modify, suspend, or discontinue the App (in whole or in part) with or without notice to you.  You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the App or any part thereof.

2. Interactions with other users of the App

The App allows you to interact with other users of the App. You are solely responsible for such interactions whether online or offline and you are asked to act responsibly in any interaction, including by avoiding statements that may be construed as medical advice and/or abusive statements. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor the interactions between you and other users. We will have no liability for any of your interactions via the App, or for any user’s action or omission. Without prejudice to the above, we are not responsible for any interaction between you and another user of the App.

3. Interactions with Physicians and other Health Care Providers.

As part of the App, you may be able to interact with physicians or other health care providers on general medical issues. It is important to note that such interaction is not an individual medical consultation, and the physicians and other health care providers do not know your medical condition or history. Any interaction will be limited to general medical issues, is not intended to create any patient-provider relationship, and may not be relied upon for the purpose of making any decisions, including medical ones. Without derogating from the above, we are not responsible for any interaction between you and a physician within the App.

4. Cost of Use

Until further notice, we will not charge you for your use of the App. You are responsible for paying all costs related to the transmission of data required to use the App (downloading, installing, launching, and using). We shall not be liable for fees charged by third parties.
