Your access to and use of our Services is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users, and others who access or use the Service. By accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms. Do not use our Services if you do not agree to these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, we do not permit you to use our Services. If at any time the Terms are no longer acceptable to you, your sole remedy shall be to immediately cease all use of the Services.
1. Our Services
You acknowledge and agree that Kismet Health, Inc. (“Kismet, “us,” “our,” or “we”) is not a healthcare provider, and does not provide you with any medical advice. Kismet’s platform is built to help you connect with a Provider or other support. If you connect with a licensed clinical provider, your licensed clinical provider is solely responsible for providing you with medical care. In such cases, Kismet acts primarily as a technology platform for you to connect with professional healthcare providers who may be available to provide you with non-emergency care. We do not control or interfere with any licensed clinical providers’ practice of medicine: each provider is responsible for the decisions and services they provide.
Any content or other materials displayed or provided through the Service are intended for general informational purposes and are not intended to be relied upon nor are a substitute for professional medical advice. Though Kismet provides this information to be helpful, it does not constitute a medical diagnosis nor opinion about what treatment is appropriate for you. Moreover, these tools may not be administered by a member of a regulated health profession in your jurisdiction. You are ultimately responsible for determining whether our Services are the right choice for you.
OUR SERVICES ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR MEDICAL ADVICE OR TREATMENT. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, SEEK EMERGENCY MEDICAL HELP. In some cases, our Services may not be the best way for you to seek care and treatment.
When you create an account with Kismet Health, you must provide accurate, complete, and up-to-date information. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify Kismet Health immediately upon becoming aware of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.
Children under the age of 18 are not eligible at this time to register directly for an account. If your child directly uses your Kismet account, either with or without your permission, we may collect information directly from the child. If you prefer for your child to not directly interact with Kismet online, please do not provide account credentials to your child. Please note certain state patient privacy laws may permit a child to directly obtain certain types of health care services independent of their parent or guardian. For registration, children cannot directly register for the Service. During the user registration process, the parent or guardian can create a children’s account by providing certain information about the child, including name, birth date, address, and login credentials.
Providers (the “Provider”) using the Service must agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. The Provider’s relationships with users (inclusive of patients and clients) are directly between the Provider and the patient. Kismet Health, Inc. does not have any direct relationship with the patient, and all agreements, consents, notices, communications, billings, and collections with the patient are at the sole discretion and responsibility of the Provider. As the sole owner of the patient relationship, Provider releases Kismet Health, Inc. of any potential claims against Kismet Health, Inc. as a result of the Provider’s use of the Service.
3. Account Security
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login credentials, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You hereby agree not to disclose your password to anyone. Kismet has no obligation to inquire as to the authority or propriety of any use of or action taken under your Account and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any such use or action, or from your failure to comply with this section. You agree to (a) ensure that you exit from your Account at the end of each session on our Services and (b) immediately notify us if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security relating to our Services. You should use particular caution when accessing your Account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or personal information. If you share your computer with others, you may wish to consider disabling your browser’s auto-sign-in features. We reserve the right to take action we deem necessary to preserve the security of our Services and your Account, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
