Delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment;
A lack of access to your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or judgment errors;
Providers utilizing the Service may be limited by state law in prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination;

Providers reserve the right to deny treatment if they believe a patient may be better served by an in-person health care provider, or for any other reason according to their professional judgment. Company encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with Providers.

You agree to provide Company with alternate payment card information if the payment card Company has on file for you is no longer valid, or if you choose to use a different payment card.
If you participate in a Membership Plan, you are responsible for payment of the applicable Membership Fee and all applicable taxes. All purchases for a Membership Plan are final. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, any paid Membership Fees (or payable Membership Fees for the remainder of an existing Membership Term) are non-cancellable and non-refundable. If you decide to cancel your participation in a Membership Plan, it means that your participation will automatically end at the end of your then-current Membership Term. For example, if you cancel in the middle of a monthly Membership Term, your participation will continue until the end of that Membership Term. For instructions on how to cancel your participation in a Membership Plan, please contact us at [email protected] You must contact our support team at least 48 hours before the end of the applicable Membership Term or free trial period.
Company reserves the right, in its discretion, to exclude any individual(s) from any Membership Plan or to terminate participation in any Membership Plan, for any reason, including abuse of the Membership Plan, failure to comply with this Agreement, or fraud, misrepresentation or other conduct detrimental to the interests of Company. Any such exclusion or termination may affect eligibility for further participation in any Membership Plan.
Membership Plans may be subject to additional or different terms, conditions or policies, as made available and updated by Company from time to time. In the event of any conflict between any such terms, conditions or policies, and this Agreement, such terms, conditions or policies will control with respect to the applicable Membership Plan.
- Payments, Refunds, Shipping and Fulfillment, and Cancellation
All fees are in U.S. Dollars, except as stated otherwise in writing by Company. All fees are exclusive of all applicable taxes (including value added tax, sales tax, goods and services tax, etc.), and you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable taxes. We recommend that you verify the existence and amount of any additional fees you may be charged by third parties in connection with any transaction (such as international transaction fees, currency exchange fees or fees due to banks or credit card companies). Company is not responsible for any such additional fees or costs.
As part of registering or submitting information to receive Paid Services, you authorize Company (either directly or through its affiliates, subsidiaries or other third parties) to request and collect payment (or otherwise charge, refund or take any other billing actions) from our payment provider or your designated banking account, and to make any inquiries Company or its affiliates may consider necessary to validate your designated payment account or financial information, in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from your payment, credit card or banking account provider (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by your credit card company). YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE MAY SUBMIT CHARGES WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU UNTIL YOU PROVIDE PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY US) THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. YOU ALSO REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD THAT YOU SUBMIT IN CONNECTION WITH A TRANSACTION.
If the credit card you supplied to us is declined, you may be required to supply a new form of payment. Please note, however, that if a credit card you supplied to us is declined, we may first try to charge your card a few more times. Payments will be subject to Company’s payment policies.
You understand and agree that you are responsible for all fees due to third-party health care, pharmacy, laboratory and other services, including any fees charged by the health care organization(s) or provider(s).
Federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, do not pay for the Paid Services, even for some health care services and products that you or your health care provider may reasonably believe that you need. If you are a beneficiary of a federal or state health care program, and such program does not pay for certain services or products rendered to you, you remain responsible to pay for these services and products. By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) you will pay directly for any medical services and products provided to you, and (ii) neither Company nor any Provider or other Company-affiliated provider will bill any federal or state health care program for such medical services or products.
If you choose to pay for Paid Services using a Health Savings Account (“HSA”), you acknowledge and agree that we do not have the obligation to verify your HSA status and/or eligibility and we cannot and do not guarantee that any Paid Services will be determined to be eligible for reimbursement through your HSA. Check with your benefits administrator to ensure eligibility for payment for any Paid Services using an HSA.
Payments are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds for partially used Membership Term periods. Please make sure you have read and understood the list of requirements in order to be treated through the TelePeds Virtual Visit to avoid payment for a service that cannot be provided to you.
10.2. Fulfillment and Shipping
Any shipments will be shipped to an address designated by you, if applicable, so long as such address is complete and complies with any applicable shipping restrictions. All transactions are made pursuant to a fulfillment and shipping contract and, as a result, risk of loss and title pass to you upon delivery to the carrier. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.
Company reserves the right, including without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue making available any Service (including any Paid Service), to impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, discount or similar promotion, to bar any user from making any transaction, and to refuse to provide any user with any Service (including any Paid Service). Cancellations will be subject to Company’s then-current cancellation policies. You agree to pay all charges incurred by you or on your behalf through the Service, at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred, including all shipping and handling charges. In addition, you are responsible for any taxes applicable to your transactions. While it is our practice to confirm orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Company and the Affiliated Entities (as defined below), and their respective successors and assigns, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement, including your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including any right of privacy or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (v) User Content or any content that is submitted via your User Account, including misleading, false, or inaccurate information; (vi) your negligence or willful misconduct; or (vii) any other party’s access and use of the Service with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.

Federal law, some states, provinces and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion and limitations of certain implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers and exclusions under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. ALL DISCLAIMERS OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING IN THIS SECTION AND ELSEWHERE IN THIS AGREEMENT) ARE MADE FOR THE BENEFIT OF BOTH COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SHAREHOLDERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “AFFILIATED ENTITIES”), AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.
- Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COMPANY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS OR INJURY RESULTING FROM COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, HACKING, TAMPERING OR OTHER UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR USE OF THE SERVICE OR YOUR ACCOUNT OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN. ADDITIONALLY, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COMPANY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS OR INJURY RESULTING FROM CANCELLED OR OTHERWISE UNFULFILLED APPOINTMENTS OR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE, FRAUD OR NEGLIGENCE OF PROVIDERS UTILIZED THROUGH THE SERVICE.

ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING IN THIS SECTION AND ELSEWHERE IN THIS AGREEMENT) ARE MADE FOR THE BENEFIT OF BOTH COMPANY AND THE AFFILIATED ENTITIES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This Agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. 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 OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
Company will not be deemed in breach of this Agreement due to any event or occurrence beyond Company’s control, including, without limitation, acts of God, terrorism, war, invasion, disease, epidemic, failures of any public networks, electrical shortages, earthquakes or floods, civil disorder, strikes, fire or other disaster.
No action arising under or in connection with this Agreement, regardless of the form, may be brought by you more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose; actions brought thereafter are forever barred.
This Agreement is effective until terminated. Company may terminate or suspend your use of the Service at any time and without prior notice, for any or no reason, including if Company believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement. Upon any such termination or suspension, your right to use the Service will immediately cease, and Company may, without liability to you or any third party, immediately deactivate or delete your user name, password, and account, and all associated materials, without any obligation to provide any further access to such materials. Sections 1.1–1.6, 1.8–1.12, 2–8, and 11–19 shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement.
- Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
15.1. Governing Law
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New Mexico; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New Mexico. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New Mexico, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Fe, New Mexico for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Santa Fe, New Mexico is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Read this section carefully because it requires each of us to arbitrate our disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Company. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at [email protected] and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT COMPANY HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO RESOLVE A DISPUTE IT HAS WITH YOU AFTER SIXTY (60) DAYS, WE EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (EXCLUDING ANY CLAIMS FOR INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF AS PROVIDED BELOW) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR THE BREACH OR ALLEGED BREACH THEREOF (COLLECTIVELY, “CLAIMS”), BY BINDING ARBITRATION BY JAMS. ADDITIONALLY, WE EACH AGREE TO USE THE OPTIONAL EXPEDITED ARBITRATION PROCEDURES THEN IN EFFECT FOR JAMS, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW. CONTACT INFORMATION AND A DESCRIPTION OF JAMS’ ARBITRATION PROCESS MAY BE FOUND AT WWW.JAMSADR.COM. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED IN SANTA FE NEW MEXICO, UNLESS YOU AND COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE. JAMS MAY REQUIRE YOU TO PAY A FEE FOR THE INITIATION OF YOUR CASE, UNLESS YOU APPLY FOR AND SUCCESSFULLY OBTAIN A FEE WAIVER FROM JAMS. THE AWARD RENDERED BY THE ARBITRATOR MAY INCLUDE YOUR COSTS OF ARBITRATION, YOUR REASONABLE ATTORNEY’S FEES, AND YOUR REASONABLE COSTS FOR EXPERT AND OTHER WITNESSES. YOU MAY SUE IN A SMALL CLAIMS COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION WITHOUT FIRST ENGAGING IN ARBITRATION, BUT THIS DOES NOT RELIEVE YOU OF YOUR OBLIGATION TO ENGAGE IN THE ARBITRATION PROCESS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. ANY JUDGMENT ON THE AWARD RENDERED BY THE ARBITRATOR MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION. THIS SECTION SHALL NOT BE INTERPRETED AS PREVENTING COMPANY FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FROM THE COURTS AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ACTUAL OR THREATENED INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION, OR VIOLATION OF OUR DATA SECURITY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR OTHER PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. YOU AGREE THAT THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH COMPANY.
15.3. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDINGS OF ANY KIND.

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice.
