Use of Platforms and/or Service  

This Website (the “Site”), the Veta mobile application and website portal (“Portal”) (collectively “Platforms”) and the services including access to health data, along with interpretation and analytics tools to empower you to organize your health information and research to provide you with a customized and beneficial Veta Health experience (“Service”) are maintained and operated by Veta Health LLC (“Veta Health,” “us,” “we,” “our,” or ”Company”).  Veta Health is a service that enables patients to engage in clinically-validated care plans with their doctors, care teams, and other healthcare providers.

These Terms are intended to bind you in the capacity in which you use the Platforms, as either a consumer, physician or health organization.

For health organizations, Veta Health offers the tools necessary to streamline workflows and care coordination along with the ability to measure system wide performance to improve care efficiency and outcomes.

For the purposes of these Terms, consumers, physicians, and health organizations are collectively referred to as “Users.”

Important Notice.  Veta Health is a business that facilitates convenience in collecting and reviewing your health information.  Veta Health does not provide medical advice.  Veta Health is not a healthcare provider.

Reliance on Information

We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of this information at any particular time.  Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk.  Veta Health disclaims all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such content by you or any other visitor to our Platforms, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

Any reliance you place on such information in the Platforms is strictly at your own risk. Veta Health disclaims all liability and responsibility for liabilities arising from any reliance placed on such content by you, any other User of our Platforms, or by any individual that might make decisions using information in the Platforms. Any information you provide or that is collected by Veta Health through the Platforms shall be handled in accordance with the Platforms’ Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference.

Consent to Share and Receive Regulated Information

If you share protected health information, subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and defined under 45 CFR § 160.103 (“PHI”), or personally identifiable information subject to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA“) and defined under 34 CFR § 99.30 (“PII”) with Veta Health relating to a particular consumer, whether you are a Provider or Contributor, you warrant and represent that you have the appropriate authorization and consent to share that information under relevant federal, state and international law, as applicable. and will share only such  information that is accurate, up-to-date and only to the extent minimally necessary to satisfy the lawful purpose for which you are sharing the PHI and/or PII.  You further warrant and represent, if any PHI or PII you share with Veta Health is related to the examination, diagnosis, or treatment of a patient for a mental health condition, including, but not limited to a psychiatric or psychological condition (cumulatively, “mental health condition”), you have obtained the appropriate authorization and/or consent required under relevant federal, state and international law, as applicable.    In the event you are receiving PHI and/or PII, you warrant and represent your commitment to maintain and protect the confidentiality of the PHI and/or PII as required by federal, state and international law, as applicable.

Consent to Allow Exchange of Your Information on Veta Health’s Platform

If you are a consumer, you warrant and represent your understanding and agreement to the release, exchange, use and disclosure of your or your child’s PHI and/or PII as described in this Terms of Service and subject to Veta Health’s Privacy Policies, which you certify you have read and understand. You further warrant and represent that you understand the PHI and/or PII subject to release, exchange, use and disclosure on Veta Health’s platform may have been created before or after the date on which you agree to Veta Health’s Terms of Service and may include records and information regarding your or your child’s health history, treatment, hospitalization, tests, and outpatient care, all of which may relate to sensitive health conditions, if any, including but not limited to drug, alcohol, or substance abuse, psychological, psychiatric or other mental impairment(s) or developmental disabilities, including psychotherapy notes, sickle cell anemia, birth control and family planning, records that may indicate the presence of a communicable disease or noncommunicable disease and tests for or records of HIV/AIDS or sexually transmitted diseases or tuberculosis, and genetic diseases or tests. This information may also include copies of educational tests or evaluations, including Individualized Educational Programs, assessments, psychological and speech evaluations, immunizations, recorded health information (such as height, weight), and information about injuries or treatment. You also acknowledge your understanding that you have the right to revoke and withdraw your authorization hereunder at any time regarding any future uses or disclosures by giving written notice to Veta Health. However, in the event you revoke and withdraw your authorization hereunder, you warrant and represent you understand that organizations that had permission to access the PHI and/or PII before such revocation and withdrawal may have copied or included any PHI and/or PII they may have received through the Platform to their own records and, in many circumstances, they are not required to return any information they were provided nor are they required to remove it from their own records.

Health Content and Usage

Our Platforms contain educational information concerning healthcare and allow the consumer to access and upload his or her health data or data provided by his or her physician.  Unless provided directly by your treating physician, any health information provided by the Platforms is for educational use only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.  Seek the advice of your physician or qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or treatment options.  Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from your doctor or other healthcare professional because of something you have read on our Platforms.  We do not represent or warrant that the information or other Content is complete, accurate, current, reliable, or error-free.  “Content” includes any photos, images, graphics, video, audio, data, text, comments, software, works of authorship of any kind, and other information, content, or other materials that are posted, generated, provided, or otherwise made available through the Platforms and their underlying technology, are protected by copyright, trademark, patent, intellectual property, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You acknowledge that any reliance upon any advice, opinion, statement, or other information displayed or distributed through the Platforms, including User materials, is at your sole risk.  You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any materials messaged by Users.

Medical information is a highly private topic.  Various laws have been enacted at the federal and local level seeking to protect the right to privacy of patient information.  These laws include HIPAA and the The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (“HITECH Act”).  By messaging or providing any information in the Platforms:

  • You agree that you are voluntarily providing this information.
  • You agree that the information provided pertains only to you, your minor child or an individual you are the legal guardian.
  • You agree that you have the right to use and publish this health data.
  • You agree that you will not message information about others as this messaging may violate federal, state or local law. For example, messaging information regarding another individual’s HIV or AIDS related status or testing information may violate the New York HIV Confidentiality Law (PHL § 2782.1) and may subject you to criminal and/or civil penalties.
  • You agree that this information may be provided to or provided by our partner networks or your primary care physician in a manner consistent with federal, state, and local laws, this Agreement and its corresponding Privacy Policy.
  • You remain responsible for any material or data you message.

Registration Requirements

In registering to use the Platforms and Service you warrant and represent that you are eighteen years of age or older, and you accept these Terms.

You agree that the information you supply will be accurate and that you will not supply the email address of, or register under the name of, another person. We reserve the right to reject any username we deem offensive or inappropriate. Users may not register as a business name.

You may have the option to share content on message boards or forums within the Platforms. In order to view messages on the Veta Health message boards without User restrictions, registration is required. In order to send messages on boards, view boards with level restrictions, and use other advanced services, you must register with Veta Health using a valid email address.

Account Responsibility

Users are solely responsible for protecting their accounts from access by others. You are strongly encouraged to select a hard-to-guess password and not re-use that password on any other sites.

While it is possible for Users to maintain multiple accounts, Veta Health may track multiple accounts from a single or multiple computers as one account in Terms of Service violations. If the Terms are violated severely enough to warrant the banning of one account, all known accounts shared between a single or multiple Users who use the same computer may also be banned for the actions of the violating account at the administrators’ discretion.

Because of this rule, it is highly recommended that board Users neither share their accounts with others nor share their computers used to access the site with others, as the actions of some other person could directly impact all known shared message board accounts.

Should a User be temporary blocked from the Platforms based on violations of the Terms, we ask that they comply with the banned period. Permanent bans will result in Users “hacking” their way onto the Platforms using Proxy IP addresses.

Notice and Consent to Receipt of Text (SMS) Messaging and Phone Calls

You may have the opportunity to opt in to receive SMS or “text” messages from Veta Health for the purposes of authenticating your account, facilitating your download of the App, or providing you informational updates about services or products you may have requested. For example, Veta Health shares telephone numbers you provide to us with Twilio, Inc., a trusted third-party partner, for the purpose of sending you a text message with information relating to your account with Veta Health.

In providing your mobile device number or cell phone number to Veta Health, you knowingly consent to such communications from Veta Health and its affiliates, or for Veta Health to use your cell phone number or mobile device number in accordance with Veta Health‘s Privacy Policy. You represent that you have the authority to agree to receive text messages at the telephone number that you provide to Veta Health, or from which you sent the text message request to us. You further acknowledge that no purchase is required to opt into this service, and you may opt out at any time by following instructions from Veta Health and as described in the Privacy Policy.

Not all mobile devices or handsets may be supported by this messaging service. Veta Health and any mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Message and data rates may apply to any text messages. Message frequency depends on the nature of your request. You hereby agree to be responsible for all costs, charges and fees you incur from your service or device provider as a result of choosing to receive such messages from the Veta Health.

Changes

We may revise these Terms at any time and you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.  Any modification will become effective when it is first messaged through the Platforms. You are responsible to return to the Terms of Service from time to time to review the most current terms and conditions. We may notify you by either messaging a new version of this Term of Service or notifying visitors on the website that a new version has been messaged.

Representations

You represent and warrant that you will not hold us responsible for the quality, safety, or accuracy of the materials on the Platforms.  We provide no warranty or guarantee regarding the accuracy, timeliness, performance, completeness or suitability of the information and materials found or offered on this website for any purpose.  You acknowledge that such information and materials may contain inaccuracies or errors and we expressly exclude liability for any such inaccuracies or errors to the fullest extent permitted by law.  If you are aware of any relevant errors, inaccuracies, or discrepancies, including pricing discrepancies please alert us at admin@myvetahealth.com.

Disclaimer of Warranty

ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.  TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, COMPANY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES:  (i) FOR THE SECURITY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, ACCURACY, AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PLATFORMS AND THE SERVICE; (ii) FOR OTHER SERVICES OR GOODS RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED ON THE COMPANY SITE OR THE PLATFORMS OR SERVICE, OR ACCESSED THROUGH ANY LINKS ON THE PLATFORMS; OR (iii) FOR VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS CONTAINED IN THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE.  YOU USE ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS ON THIS WEBSITE ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.  IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR INFORMATION AVAILABLE THROUGH THE PLATFORMS MEET YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, USER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE VETA HEALTH SOFTWARE AND THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE USED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SERVICES HEREUNDER ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND THAT VETA HEALTH GIVES NO WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO THE FUNCTIONALITY, ACCESS, OR PROVISION OF ANY INTERNET CONNECTIVITY.

Links to Other Websites

The Platforms may contain links and pointers to other websites that are maintained by third parties.  Such links do not mean that we endorse these third-party sites or any materials they contain.  We do not control, and thus are not responsible for, the availability, accuracy, privacy policy, or currency of such third-party sites or any information, content, products or services accessible from such third-party sites.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold us, our officers, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, directors, officers, agents, service providers, suppliers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorney fees and court costs, made by any third party due to or arising out of materials you submit, message or make available through the Service or Platforms, your use of the Service or Platforms, your violation of the Terms, your breach of any of the representations and warranties in these Terms, or your violation of any rights of another person or entity.

Governing Law

You further consent that this Agreement is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, U.S.A. without reference to its conflicts of law provisions.  You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Florida for any disputes arising out of the use of the Platforms.

Arbitration

You and Veta Health agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Platform or Services shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than bringing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in court, however, we agree to cooperate with each other to agree to reasonable discovery in light of the issues involved and amount of the claim. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, but in so doing, the arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter had been brought in court, including without limitation, the law on punitive damages as applied by the United States Supreme Court. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Veta Health are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and any other contractual relationship between you and Veta Health. All arbitration proceedings must occur under the Rules of Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association applying Florida law.

Entire Agreement

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter that it describes. This Agreement supersedes all prior proposals, negotiations, conversations, discussions and agreements between the parties concerning the information it covers.

Severability

If, for any reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or part of a provision of this Agreement unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of this Agreement.  Any remaining provisions of the Agreement will continue to be enforced with full effect.

Limitation of Liability

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE WE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM ANY ASPECT OF YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE, WHETHER THE DAMAGES ARISE FROM USE OR MISUSE OF THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE, FROM INABILITY TO USE THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE, OR THE INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, MODIFICATION, ALTERATION, OR TERMINATION OF THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE.  IN NO EVENT WILL VETA HEALTH’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY RESULTING FROM ANY ASPECT OF YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE EXCEED $500 (FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS).  SUCH DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS SHALL ALSO APPLY WITH RESPECT TO DAMAGES INCURRED BY REASON OF OTHER SERVICES OR PRODUCTS RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED IN CONNECTION WITH THE OUR PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE OR ANY LINKS ON THE PLATFORMS, AS WELL AS BY REASON OF ANY INFORMATION OR ADVICE RECEIVED THROUGH OR ADVERTISED IN CONNECTION WITH THE PLATFORMS OR THE SERVICE OR ANY LINKS ON THE PLATFORMS.  THESE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. In some jurisdictions, limitations of liability are not permitted and some of the foregoing disclaimers and limitations may not apply to you.

Consequences of Violation of Terms

We may, without notice to you, suspend your Service or remove any materials transmitted via the Platforms if we discover facts that lead us to reasonably believe the Service is being used in violation of these Terms.  You agree to cooperate with our reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of these Terms.  We may attempt to contact you prior to your suspension; however, prior notification is not assured.
