Terms of Service

TERMS OF SERVICE

Last Updated:  September 31, 2018

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully before using the Nurse-1-1.com website (the “Website”) and the Nurse-1-1 mobile applications (the “Apps”) operated by VideWell, Inc. (“Videwell,” “us,” “we,” “our” or “Nurse-1-1”), including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through the Website or Apps.

At Nurse-1-1, we are committed to providing you and your family with the highest quality information and service.  We hold ourselves to the highest legal, medical, and ethical standards.  Please read these Terms carefully so that you understand them.  We value hearing from you so if you have any questions or ideas, please do not hesitate to get in touch by e-mailing us at support@nurse-1-1.com.

Your access to and use of the Website and Apps are conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Website or Apps.

By accessing or using the Website and/or the Apps, you agree to be bound by these Terms and our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference, and (A) acknowledge that you have read and understand these Terms; (B) represent that you are 18 years of age or older/of legal age to enter into a binding agreement; and (C) accept these Terms and agree that you are legally bound hereby.  If you disagree with any part of these Terms or the Privacy Policy, then you do not have permission to access or use the Website or Apps.

Definitions

“Content” means text, graphics, images and any other material entered, processed, contained on or accessed through the Website or Apps, including Content created, modified, validated or submitted by health experts.

“health experts” means US-based, certified nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and registered nurses in good standing. Nurse-1-1 reserves the right to expand the network to include other certified health professionals.

“Service” means services provided through the Apps or Website.

Guidelines and Controls for the Nurse-1-1 Service

It is important to the interests of Nurse-1-1 and those who use our service that we have a shared understanding about the limits of what it can do.  Accordingly, what follows will outline important limits that we must all understand and abide by, for the best interests of Nurse-1-1, those who use the Service, and the health experts that users contact.

What is Nurse-1-1?

Nurse-1-1 is a service owned and operated by VideWell, Inc., a technology company providing a platform on which users can chat with a health expert for informational purposes only.  Nurse-1-1 does not provide medical advice or treatment and is not your healthcare provider.  The Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Again, we are a technology company, and do not intend to cross the line of becoming (or being perceived as) a health care provider based on interactions between “health experts” (which can be nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, and healthcare professionals) and individuals engaged in chats with those health experts. Health experts contacted using the Nurse-1-1 Service do not take the place of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider and you should continue to schedule regular and ongoing visits with your Primary Care Physician (“PCP”).  You should contact a healthcare professional with questions or concerns about your medical care or treatment.  If you are in need of immediate medical attention, please contact a healthcare professional or emergency services (such as 911).  Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Nurse-1-1 Website or Apps.

Other than information received directly by you from your personal provider, the platform Content should not be considered medical advice.  You should always consult with an appropriately qualified health care professional for triage, diagnosis, and treatment, including information regarding which medications or treatment may be appropriate for you.  Nurse-1-1 cannot and does not represent or warrant that any particular medication or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you.  Without limitation, Nurse-1-1 does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, providers, medications, products or procedures.

When using Nurse-1-1 to chat with your personal provider (i.e. your doctor’s office), you are entering into a patient-provider relationship with your provider and in this instance Nurse-1-1 is intended only to supplement that relationship (to make the communication experience better).  Nurse-1-1 does not replace your existing primary care physician relationship, and in the off-chance your provider is not available on the Nurse-1-1 platform Service, you understand the risk of not finding another mode of communication to contact your provider.

Nurse-1-1 is not an insurance provider nor are we a prescription fulfillment warehouse.

You agree that your medical history provided in a chat with a health expert is accurate and complete information. You accept the risk associated with providing false or inaccurate information and will not hold Nurse-1-1 accountable for any incorrect information given because of such error.

The Website and Apps may contain health- or medical-related materials that are sexually explicit. If you find these materials offensive, you may not want to use the Website or Apps.

What can you ask health experts using the Nurse-1-1 Service?

You can ask the health experts basic health questions and address concerns such as:

  • Your symptoms
  • Medications and side effects
  • Reliable self-care home treatments
  • Self-help and support groups
  • When to go to your doctor
  • When to go to the emergency room
  • Local physician and hospital resources
  • Wellness information
  • Your questions and concerns regarding non-urgent and non-emergency conditions.

Even if you ask a Nurse-1-1 health expert about your concerns, you also should speak with or see your doctor, or go to urgent care for pressing issues, such as if you:

  • Run out of medicine
  • Have questions about your medicine
  • Have an earache, cough or cold
  • Have a small cut, burn or bruise
  • Need shots
  • Have a cough but no wheezing
  • Need a note for work
  • Are feeling worse
  • Your symptoms are worsening or not improving

Even if you ask a Nurse-1-1 health expert about your concerns, you should go to the emergency room if you think you have an urgent or emergent health issue, such as:

  • Having a hard time breathing
  • chest pain
  • Choking
  • Serious bleeding
  • Suddenly being unable to move or speak
  • Passing out (fainting)
  • Hit your head and pass out
  • Have a severe headache
  • Having vision changes
  • Are poisoned
  • Have deep cuts or serious burns
  • Are attacked (by a person or an animal)
  • Have broken bones, or sudden serious pain and swelling in a joint
  • Are thinking of hurting yourself or someone else
  • Have a cough and wheezing
  • Have an asthma attack
  • Or any other medical condition that concerns you and/or is affecting you seriously

These limitations are important to understand because Nurse-1-1 cannot know the specific physical, emotional or mental health of the users of the Service.  Moreover, we are working independently of these health experts — which means we do not directly provide medical treatment or care.

Policies

  • Informed consent to these Terms and our Privacy Policy is required to use the Service, to ensure that users understand the Service and its limitations.
  • All data collected shall be kept in accordance with our Privacy Policy and subject to applicable record retention requirements.
  • Neither Nurse-1-1 nor the health experts are required to report if someone is suicidal or a threat to others. However, health experts will be prepared to respond appropriately in the event such a circumstance arises. Because health experts are not positioned to treat high levels of emotional distress, such as:
  • Threatening to harm self or others
  • Self mutilation (“cutting”)
  • Acting out
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Emotional outburst
  • Loss of rationality
  • Venting, screaming, swearing, etc.
  • High energy output

Any user who appears to be demonstrating such high levels of emotional distress should seek appropriate alternative resources, such as the contact information for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, (800) 273-8255, http://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ or other equivalent resources.

Fees

You agree to pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. You authorize Nurse-1-1 to immediately charge your credit card or other payment account provided for all fees and charges due and payable and agree that no additional notice or consent is required. Nurse-1-1 fees are net of any applicable sales tax. If any services or payments for any goods or services are subject to sales tax in any jurisdiction, you will be responsible for payment of such sales tax and any related penalties or interest, and will indemnify Nurse-1-1 for any liability or expense incurred in connection with such sales taxes (including any use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that Nurse-1-1 is permitted to pass to you) and Nurse-1-1 may automatically charge and withhold such taxes for services to be delivered within any jurisdictions that it deems is required. Unless otherwise agreed to by Nurse-1-1 in writing, all fees paid are non-refundable. We do our best to ensure our fees are reasonable and affordable for all of Nurse-1-1’s users, and ensure that Nurse-1-1’s health experts receive adequate compensation for their time. If you ever have questions about your fees or charges, please contact us at support@nurse-1-1.com.

Fee Changes

Nurse-1-1, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.

Nurse-1-1 Inc. will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.

Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.

Except when otherwise required by law, paid fees and Subscription fees are non-refundable.

You retain the option to attempt to accept or to decline or ignore a user’s request for a chat via the Service, or to cancel an accepted request for chat via the Service, subject to Nurse-1-1’s then-current cancellation policies. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion to provide services or otherwise engage in other business or employment activities. For the sake of clarity, you understand that you retain the complete right to; (i) use other software application services in addition to the Service; and (ii) engage in any other occupation or business. Nurse-1-1 retains the right to deactivate or otherwise restrict you from accessing or using the Services in the event of a violation or alleged violation of the Terms of Use or Health Expert Terms, your disparagement of Nurse-1-1 or any of its affiliates, your act or omission that causes harm to Nurse-1-1’s or its affiliates’ brand, reputation or business as determined by Nurse-1-1 in its sole discretion.

Health Experts: Ratings

You acknowledge and agree that: (a) after utilizing the Service, a user will be prompted by the Website or the App to provide a rating of you and the Service and, optionally, to provide comments or feedback about you and the Service; and (b) after utilizing the Service as a Health Expert, you will be prompted by the Website or the App to provide a rating of the user you connected with and, optionally, to provide comments or feedback about such user. You shall provide your ratings and feedback in good faith.

You acknowledge that Nurse-1-1 desires that users have access to high-quality services via the Website and the Apps. In order to continue to receive access to the Service as a Health Expert, you must maintain an average rating by users that exceeds the minimum average acceptable rating established by Nurse-1-1, as may be updated from time to time by Nurse-1-1 in its sole discretion (“Minimum Average Rating”). Your average rating is intended to reflect users’ satisfaction with your services rather than your compliance with any of Nurse-1-1’s policies or recommendations. In the event your average rating falls below the Minimum Average Rating, Nurse-1-1 will notify you and may provide you, in Nurse-1-1’s discretion, a limited period of time to raise your average rating above the Minimum Average Rating. If you do not increase your average rating above the Minimum Average Rating within the time period allowed (if any), Nurse-1-1 reserves the right to deactivate your access to the Service as a Health Expert. Additionally, you acknowledge that your repeated failure to accept user requests for services while you are logged in to the Service as a Health Expert creates a negative experience for users of the Service. If you do not wish to accept user requests for services on the Website or Apps for a period of time, you agree that you will log off the Website and Apps as a Health Expert.

Health Experts: Service Charge Calculation and Your Payment

You are entitled to a service charge for each instance of completed services provided by you to a user that are obtained via the Service (“Service Charge”). The Service Charge will be calculated using a formula developed by Nurse-1-1, in its sole discretion (“Service Charge Calculation”). You acknowledge and agree that the Service Charge paid pursuant to the Service Charge Calculation is the only payment you will receive in connection with your provision of services on the Website or Apps, and that neither the Service Charge nor the Service Charge Calculation includes any gratuity. You: (i) appoint Nurse-1-1 as your limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Service Charge, and, at Nurse-1-1’s discretion, applicable taxes and fees from the user on your behalf via the payment processing functionality facilitated by the Service; and (ii) agree that payment made by User to Nurse-1-1 (or to an affiliate or agent of Nurse-1-1) shall be considered the same as payment made directly by the user to you.
