  •      Healthcare Services and online menopause assessment: STELLA+

 

Vira Health provides an online menopause assessment, which has been designed by clinicians. Vira Health does not engage in the practice of medicine and does not provide any healthcare services; however, we may facilitate access to independent, third party qualified healthcare professionals Third Party Clinicians.  If you engage in a telehealth consultation with a Third Party Clinician, you may be entering into a physician-patient relationship or other provider-patient relationship with the Third Party Clinicians who provide services to you.  You understand that telehealth and telemedicine services may not be a substitute for in-person care in all cases, and the Third Party Clinicians may need to refer you to other service providers. By using the Services, you understand and agree that you are not establishing a doctor-patient relationship with Vira Health (or any other similar provider-patient relationship with us) by using the Service.

 

Your completed assessment will be shared with the Third Party Clinicians for review. If a Third Party Clinician notifies us that you are eligible for an online appointment with a Third Party Clinician, we will notify you and facilitate the booking of the appointment for you. The Third Party Clinicians will also determine if a prescription medication is appropriate for you, such as menopausal hormone therapy (MHT). It is entirely your decision to fill this prescription and commence a course of treatment. 

Before receiving telehealth or telemedicine services, you will be required to review and provide informed consent in order to use such Services.  See the tele-health consent here.  You agree that Vira Health is a third-party beneficiary of such consent and has the right to enforce it against you.

You understand and agree that the Third Party Clinicians are solely responsible for the medical care and treatment that they provide to you. Vira Health is not responsible for their acts, omissions or for any content of the communications made by them. 

If you have a teleconsultation with a Third Party Clinician through the Services, you understand and agree that you are providing your personal health information to, and receiving advice and prescriptions from such Third Party Clinician, and not Vira Health. Third Party Clinicians may be governed by federal or applicable State privacy rules that may not be applicable to Vira Health. Please review the Third Party Clinician’s applicable privacy policies for more information about the processing of your personal data. ‍

If a Third Party Clinician determines that a prescription is appropriate for you, they will then place an order for the prescription with them directly. Vira Health does not recommend or endorse any specific prescription drug, laboratory or pharmacy. By accepting these Terms of Service, you acknowledge and accept that Vira Health is not a pharmacy.

 

VIRA HEALTH MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE SUITABILITY, RELIABILITY, OR TIMELINESS OF THE PHARMACIES, OR THE PRESCRIPTION PRODUCTS AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE PHARMACIES.

19. Dispute Resolution & Arbitration; Governing Law

(a) Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Vira Health in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Section 17(b), you and Vira Health agree that every dispute arising in connection with this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitrators can award damages and other relief that is binding upon the parties, but arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this Agreement, your use of the Services and/or Vira Health’s Services, and our communications with you, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND VIRA HEALTH ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

 

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES BY BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION WITHIN 30 CALENDAR DAYS AFTER THE DATE THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS BY SENDING A LETTER TO VIRA HEALTH AT THE ADDRESS IDENTIFIED IN SECTION 24. IN ORDER TO BE EFFECTIVE, THE LETTER MUST BE RECEIVED BY VIRA HEALTH WITHIN 30 CALENDAR DAYS OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND YOUR LETTER MUST SPECIFY: YOUR FULL LEGAL NAME, YOUR CURRENT RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS, THE EMAIL ADDRESS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR USER ACCOUNT ON THE SERVICE, AND A STATEMENT THAT YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”). 

 

(b) Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 17(a), nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law to compel or enforce arbitration; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.

 

(c) Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Vira Health will be conducted under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org/consumer, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Vira Health. The arbitration will be before a single arbitrator selected pursuant to the AAA Rules. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, arbitrability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.

 

(d) Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). Vira Health’s address for Notice of Arbitration is identified in Section 22 below. The Notice of Arbitration must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties shall make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or Vira Health may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. 

 

(e) Fees. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in the State of Delaware, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone or virtual hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the material findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

 

(f) No Class Actions. YOU AND VIRA HEALTH AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Vira Health agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, consolidated, or class proceeding.

 

(g) Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If Vira Health makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Vira Health’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Vira Health’s address for Notice of Arbitration.

 

(h) Enforceability. If Section 17(f) is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 17 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 17 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 17(i) will govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement. 

 

(i) This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to conflict of law principles. You and Vira Health submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located in the State of Delaware for resolution of any lawsuit or court proceeding permitted under these Terms.

22. Copyright Infringement Claims

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Sites infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to Vira Health a written notice by mail or email, requesting that Vira Health remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Vira Health a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Vira Health by mail to the address identified in Section 22, or by email to support@onstella.com.

We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice.

24. Miscellaneous

This Agreement does not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency or franchisor-franchisee relationship between you and Vira Health. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under this Agreement without restriction, including, without limitation, those rights or obligations relating to your user account and any information that you provide or that has been provided on your behalf to Vira Health or that has been collected by Vira Health in connection with Vira Health’s business operations or through the Sites. No waiver by either party of any breach or default under this Agreement will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is for convenience only, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision. All terms defined in the singular shall have the same meanings when used in the plural, where appropriate and unless otherwise specified. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in this Agreement shall be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.” To the extent there is a conflict between the provisions in this Agreement and any Additional Terms incorporated herein by reference, the latter shall have precedence. This Agreement, including any terms and conditions incorporated herein, is the entire agreement between you and Vira Health relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or understandings between you and Vira Health relating to such subject matter. Notices to you (including notices of changes to this Agreement) may be made via posting to the Sites or by email (including in each case via links), or by regular mail. Without limitation, a printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Vira Health will not be responsible for any failure to fulfill any obligation or any delay in performing any of its obligations, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond Vira Health’s reasonable control including but not limited to severe weather, power, or other utility cut-off, natural disaster, strikes, governmental action, epidemic, pandemic, terrorism, war, civil unrest, or other similar events of “force majeure”.
