Ember Medical, Inc. App Terms of Use (Medic)

Effective Date: October 30th, 2018

These Terms of Use (these “Terms”) describe the terms and conditions on which Ember Medical, Inc. (“Ember Medical”, “we”, “our” or “us”) offers you (“you” or “User”) the ability to access and use the applications, websites, content, products, and services (the “Services”, as more fully defined below in the Services section) operated and made available by Ember Medical. By downloading, accessing or using the Services you will become legally bound by these Terms, so please read them carefully before accessing and using the Services. If you do not agree with any provision of these Terms, Ember Medical does not grant you permission to access and use the Services, and you must immediately cease use of the Services.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMERS:

1. THE SERVICES ARE NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE OR AFFECT A USER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO SEEK ASSISTANCE THROUGH 911 IN THE EVENT OF A MEDICAL EMERGENCY OR OTHER URGENT SITUATION. IF YOU THINK THERE MAY BE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, ENSURE THAT 911 HAS BEEN CONTACTED BEFORE PROVIDING RESPONSE SERVICES, WHICH MAY BE DONE BY ACTIVATING THE APPLICATION (AS DEFINED BELOW) OR BY DIALING 911 IN THE EVENT OF CONNECTIVITY ISSUES.

2. In order to utilize the Services, you must have a connection to the Internet. The Services may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications. Ember Medical does not guarantee that the Services, or any portion thereof, will function on any particular hardware or devices.

3. In order to utilize the Response Services (as defined below) you must consent to Privacy Policy, which includes a provision that enables the sharing of certain of your personal information, including your geo-location information.

4. Ember Medical does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Use of the Services does not create a patient-physician relationship between you, Ember Medical, any other Medic or any other user (as defined below) of the Services. The Ember Medical Content offered through the Services was designed for educational purposes only to assist you in developing your response to what you perceive to be an emergency situation and to enable you to respond to requests for assistance from other users of the Services if you are willing and able to offer assistance. The Ember Medical Content and other services offered through the Services are not intended to replace professional care. You should never disregard advice or forgo seeking treatment from a medical professional because of something you have read in the Ember Medical Content or assistance from another Medic that you obtain through the Services. For the sake of clarity, Ember Medical only connects Medics to users to enable you to respond to a request for assistance from a user, and any services you provide (or do not provide) to a user, and any results, outcomes or consequences arising therefrom, are outside the scope of the arrangement that you have with Ember Medical. EMBER MEDICAL MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR COMMITMENTS THAT IT WILL CONNECT YOU WITH USERS IN RESPONSE TO A REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE, NOR THAT YOU WILL BE QUALIFIED OR CAPABLE OF PROVIDING ASSISTANCE TO A USER.

5. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER THE LAW, EMBER MEDICAL EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS AND GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND WITH REGARD TO ANY INFORMATION, MATERIALS, CONTENT, SERVICES, FEATURES OR PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES, WHETHER SUCH WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR GUARANTEES ARE ORAL OR WRITTEN, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

6. Services-Specific Terms. These Terms contain general terms that apply to all our Services, as well as certain terms that apply only to a particular Service (“Services-Specific Terms”). We also may present to you or post additional Services-Specific Terms through the Services that apply to particular features of the Services. To the extent that these Terms conflict with the Services-Specific Terms, the Services-Specific terms will control.

LEGAL NOTICE: These Terms contain provisions that limit our liability to you and require you to resolve any dispute with us through final and binding arbitration on an individual basis and not as part of any class or representative action. Please see “Disclaimer of Warranties”, “Limitations of Liability”, “Waiver of Right to Pursue Class Action Claims”, “Limitation on Time to Bring an Action” and “Waiver of Jury Trial; Agreement to Arbitrate Claims” sections below for more information.

A. GENERAL TERMS

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ABILITY TO RESPOND TO A REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE FROM A USER AND RECEIVE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES DOES NOT ESTABLISH NOR CREATE A PATIENT-PHYSICIAN RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU, EMBER MEDICAL, ANY OTHER MEDIC OR ANY OTHER USER OF THE SERVICES, AND EMBER MEDICAL MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE QUALITY, AVAILABILITY, RESPONSIVENESS, TRAINING, BACKGROUND OR QUALIFICATIONS OF THE SERVICES OR THE SERVICES OFFERED BY MEDICS, OR THE NATURE OF USER REQUESTS FOR RESPONSE SERVICES.

We will indicate the Terms’ effective date at the top of these Terms. Your continued use of the Services after changes have been posted will indicate your agreement to be bound by the revised Terms or Service-Specific Terms, as applicable, inclusive of such changes.

If we make material changes to the Terms or Service-Specific Terms that would impact your use of the Services, we will endeavor to notify you of the changes, such as by posting a notice directly in the Services or by sending an email notification (if you have provided your email address to us).

D. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES; LIABILITY; INDEMNITY; INSURANCE

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER THE LAW, EMBER MEDICAL EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS AND GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND WITH REGARD TO ANY INFORMATION, MATERIALS, CONTENT, SERVICES, FEATURES OR PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES, WHETHER SUCH WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR GUARANTEES ARE ORAL OR WRITTEN, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, BUT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.

2. Limitation of Liability. YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICES (INCLUDING FUNCTIONS AND CONTENT) IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE ACCESSING AND USING THE SERVICES. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU IS LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH ABOVE WILL SURVIVE ANY TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF THESE TERMS OF USE AND WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY SPECIFIED HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY IN THEIR ENTIRETY TO YOU. YOU AGREE, HOWEVER, THAT OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, TOGETHER WITH THE OTHER PROVISIONS IN THESE TERMS OF USE THAT LIMIT LIABILITY, ARE ESSENTIAL TERMS AND THAT EMBER MEDICAL WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO GRANT YOU THE RIGHTS SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS BUT FOR YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY.

IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

3. Indemnity. While Ember Medical is willing to answer any questions and provide reasonable support to you, you are ultimately responsible for your actions. If we (or any of our employees, directors or agents, or other users of the Services) are sued or if any claim or action is made or brought against us (or any of our employees, directors or agents, or other users of the Services) related to anything you do or omit to do (including your (i) use or misuse of the Services, (ii) your use of the Ember Medical Content or your User Submissions, (iii) your violation of these Terms, (iv) your violation of the rights of any other person or entity, or (iv) your violation of any applicable law), you will pay any damages, losses, liabilities, expenses, settlement amounts or costs (including attorney’s fees) that we (and/or they) incur as a result of the suit or claim, and, if we request it, you will defend us (and/or them) against the suit or claim.

4. Insurance. You are responsible for maintaining liability insurance coverage that covers all acts and omissions associated with the delivery of the Services in an amount that is consistent with industry standards. You acknowledge and agree that Ember Medical is not obligated to secure or maintain insurance coverage for your activities.

E. GOVERNING LAW; LEGAL ACTIONS

1. Governing Law. These Terms are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the substantive laws of the state of California, without regard to the choice of law provisions of any jurisdiction. If a dispute arises between you and us relating to the Services or these Terms, you and we agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any such dispute will be the state and federal courts located in [San Francisco], California.

2. Waiver of Right to Pursue Class Action Claims. You agree to only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and waive any right to pursue any claims on a class or consolidated basis or in a representative capacity. You and Ember Medical agree that each may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding.

3. Limitation on Time to Bring an Action. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action brought by you arising out of or related to the Services or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or such claim or cause of action will be forever barred.

4. Waiver of Jury Trial; Agreement to Arbitrate Claims. By agreeing to these Terms, both you and we are waiving the right to a jury trial on any disputes that may arise.

You agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and us. If a dispute arises between you and us relating to the Services or these Terms, you and we agree that the dispute shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its rules for consumer arbitrations (“AAA Rules”). You and we agree to the following rules relating to any arbitration proceeding:

  • YOU AND EMBER MEDICAL WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING SUCH CLAIMS BEFORE ANY COURT OF LAW. RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
  • The venue for all disputes arising under these Terms shall be in [San Francisco, CA] but you and we may agree to conduct the arbitration by telephone, online and/or solely based on written submissions. You hereby waive any right to claim that such location is an inconvenient forum and covenant not to sue us in any other forum.
  • The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity (including attorney’s fees) and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives.
  • The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review.
  • Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
  • You and we agree, to the extent practicable, to direct the arbitrator issue a decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. You and we acknowledge that if the arbitrator does not issue a decision within 120 days, such event will not limit or waive the powers of the arbitrator or this agreement to arbitrate.
  • All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award.
  • The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will not include any statement setting forth the reasons for the disposition of any claim.

Either you or we may seek an injunction at any time from any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect the rights or property of you or us pending the completion of arbitration.

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Ember Medical will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines that the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Ember Medical for all fees associated with the arbitration that Ember Medical paid on your behalf which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA Rules.

F. GENERAL TERMS; CONTACT INFORMATION

1. General Terms. You and Ember Medical agree to be bound by the following general terms:

  • These Terms, which include our Privacy Policy and any Service-Specific Terms to the extent applicable, contain the entire understanding by and between Ember Medical and you with respect to the matters contained herein.

  • If any provision of these Terms is or becomes unenforceable or invalid, the remaining provisions will continue with the same effect as if such unenforceable or invalid provision had not been used.

  • These Terms inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon our and your permitted successors and assigns.

  • If you have registered your email address with us, you agree that we may send you notice via email to the email address you have provided, and we are not responsible for your failure to receive notice if email is quarantined by your email security system (e.g., “junk” or “spam” folder) or if you fail to update your email address.
