1. SERVICES. DignifiHealth provides innovative healthcare solutions through its SaaS platform of technologies and services (“DignifiHealth Ecosystem”). Our core proprietary technology delivers actionable clinical intelligence and analytics designed to empower healthcare professionals, patients, and payors to achieve high-quality, cost-efficient care, resulting in improved population health. We additionally offer healthcare tools for employers and large organizations designed to improve the health and wellbeing of their employees and members. Certain services and technologies we offer may be provided through our relationships with third-party healthcare service companies (“Partner Platforms”).
1.1 Access to Services. Certain Services in the DignifiHealth Ecosystem, such as DignifiEngage, may only be accessed by signing up as an Enterprise User (as defined below) through an Enterprise Customer (as defined below) who has purchased such Service. In other words, there are certain Services that Individual Users (as defined below) may not access or purchase. Certain Services may not be purchased by Enterprise Users or Individual Users and may only be purchased by an Enterprise Customer, though you may access and/or benefit from such Services as an Enterprise User. Further, as an Enterprise User, you may not have access to certain Services as they may not be included as part of the enterprise program purchased by the Enterprise Customer through which you have set up your Account. However, you may have the ability to independently purchase additional Services, such as access to DignifiRx, in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time. If such services are available and you, as an Enterprise User, choose to purchase such additional Services, you will be deemed an Individual User for purposes of your use of such Services.
1.2 Medical and Telehealth Services. As stated above, DignifiHealth does not provide any professional health care services; rather DignifiHealth provides technology and services in the form of clinical decision support tools, such as DignifiEngage, and online access to Partner Platforms. Certain Partner Platforms allow you to receive communications from a health care provider unaffiliated with DignifiHealth (“Provider”) to obtain certain medical services (“Telehealth Services”). DignifiHealth does not recommend or endorse any specific content, services, tests, doctors, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned while using its Partner Platforms. “Telehealth” means and involves the delivery of health care services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a health care provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location, and/or the virtual delivery of healthcare services, including by a health care provider via digital or automated tools, including tools for medical or health-related diagnosis and treatment. Telehealth Services provided by Partner Platforms are designed to be used with common sense, and in connection with the advice of your doctor or healthcare provider. Reliance on Telehealth Services content or services is solely at your own risk. Some services and content (including posts by Medical Experts) may not be reviewed or certified by the Partner Platform providing access to Telehealth Services. DignifiHealth cannot guarantee that the content and services will help you achieve any specific goals or results. Content regarding dietary supplements or other treatments or regimens have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. No professional health care services other than the Telehealth Services are available through the Partner Platforms. A Provider of Telehealth Services interacting with you through the Services may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. Therefore, the Provider may not be aware of facts or information that may affect his or her opinion regarding a potential diagnosis or treatment recommendation. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation, DignifiHealth strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with a Provider. By deciding to engage the Services, including the Telehealth Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) the Telehealth Services are not intended, in all cases, to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a health care provider; and (ii) a Provider acting through the Services may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on” physical examination. IN THE EVENT OF A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, USERS SHOULD CALL 911 OR CONTACT YOUR PRIMARY HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONER.
1.3 Consent for Telehealth Services. The Telehealth Services may be used for diagnosis, treatment, care, and follow-up, providing information about patient laboratory test results and for patient education, and may include, but is not limited to:
(a) Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information, or other data between a patient and health care provider;
(b) Interactions between a patient and health care provider via audio, video, and/or data communications; and
(c) The electronic systems used in the Services will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information and imaging data and will include measures to safeguard the data to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
You understand that virtual encounters via phone, email, video, or otherwise, could involve, and you hereby consent to the use of, automated tools for diagnosis, care, treatment or communication pertaining to healthcare matters. You also acknowledge that such virtual encounters may involve care by a variety of Providers, including Physicians, Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nutritionists, Naturopathic Doctors, Therapists, and other support or medical personnel. You give permission to DignifiHealth, Partner Platforms, and the Telehealth Services Providers to record and process your personal details and medical data. You may withdraw these permissions at any time by no longer seeking Telehealth Services through DignifiHealth.

9. FEES AND PURCHASE TERMS.
9.1 Payment. 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 must provide DignifiHealth with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or an account of a third-party payment service (each, a “Payment Provider”), as a condition to signing up for the Services. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card or payment account, and you must refer to that agreement, not this Agreement, to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing DignifiHealth with your credit card number or payment account and associated payment information, you agree that DignifiHealth is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to DignifiHealth hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify DignifiHealth of any change in your billing address or the credit card or payment account used for payment hereunder. DignifiHealth reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on DignifiHealth Properties or by e-mail delivery to you.
9.2 Service Subscription Fees. You will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you create your Account and select your monthly package (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). Except as set forth in the Agreement, all fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and 11. DignifiHealth for the Services until DignifiHealth accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means of communication.
9.3 Taxes. The payments required under Section 9.2 (Service Subscription Fees) of this Agreement do not include any Sales Tax that may be due in connection with the services provided under this Agreement. If DignifiHealth determines it has a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this Agreement, DignifiHealth shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments required under Section 9.2 (Service Subscription Fees) of this Agreement. If any services, or payments for any services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to DignifiHealth, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify DignifiHealth for any liability or expense DignifiHealth may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon DignifiHealth’s request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes. For purposes of this section, “Sales Tax” shall mean any sales or use tax and any other tax measured by sales proceeds that is the functional equivalent of a sales tax where the applicable taxing jurisdiction does not otherwise impose a sales or use tax.
9.4 Withholding Taxes. You agree to make all payments of fees to DignifiHealth free and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to DignifiHealth will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide DignifiHealth with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
9.5 Automatic Renewal. Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Agreement. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at DignifiHealth’s then-current price for such subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription at least sixty (60) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from DignifiHealth that your subscription will be automatically renewed, you will have sixty (60) days from the date of the DignifiHealth notice). If you do not wish your Account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please contact DignifiHealth at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize DignifiHealth to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if DignifiHealth does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that DignifiHealth may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
9.6 Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any free trial or other promotion that provides Registered User level access to the Services must be used within the specified time of the trial. At the end of the trial period, your use of that Service will expire and any further use of the Service is 12. prohibited unless you pay the applicable subscription fee. If you are inadvertently charged for a subscription, please contact DignifiHealth to have the charges reversed.
9.7 Advertising Revenue. DignifiHealth reserves the right to display Third-Party Ads before, after, or in conjunction with User Content posted on the Services, and you acknowledge and agree that DignifiHealth has no obligation to you in connection therewith (including, without limitation, any obligation to share revenue received by DignifiHealth as a result of such advertising).
10. INDEMNIFICATION. You agree to indemnify and hold DignifiHealth, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners, suppliers, and licensors (each, a “DignifiHealth Party” and collectively, the “DignifiHealth Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of any and all of the following: (a) Your Content; (b) your use of, or inability to use, any DignifiHealth Property; (c) your violation of the Agreement; (d) your violation of any rights of another party, including any Registered Users; or (e) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. DignifiHealth reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with DignifiHealth in asserting any available defenses. This provision does not require you to indemnify any of the DignifiHealth Parties for any unconscionable commercial practice by such party or for such party’s fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or concealment, or suppression or omission of any material fact in connection with the Website or any Services provided hereunder. You agree that the provisions in this section will survive any termination of your Account, the Agreement and/or your access to DignifiHealth Properties.

16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires U.S. users to arbitrate disputes with DignifiHealth and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
16.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with DignifiHealth, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (a) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify,; and (b) you or DignifiHealth may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
16.2 Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter, by certified mail, requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent at Cogency Global Inc., 850 New Burton Road, Suite 201, Dover, DE 19904. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or request for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, DignifiHealth will pay them for you. In addition, DignifiHealth will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
16.3 Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and DignifiHealth. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
16.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND DIGNIFIHEALTH HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and DignifiHealth are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 16.1 (Application of Arbitration Agreement) above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
16.5 Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this section’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of West Virginia. All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
16.6 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: email@example.com, within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your DignifiHealth username (if any), the email address you used to set up your DignifiHealth account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
16.7 Severability. Except as provided in Section 16.5 (Waiver of Class or Other NonIndividualized Relief), if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
16.8 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with DignifiHealth.
16.9 Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if DignifiHealth makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing DignifiHealth at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
