OWNERSHIP OF SERVICE
HealthJoy helps you manage your insurance benefits and improve your overall healthcare experience by providing a digital platform on which you can connect with medical providers, obtain information about your insurance and advice about your medical bills, and access other resources designed to promote health and wellness. Neither HealthJoy nor its Virtual MSK Care Program provide a medical diagnosis or medical treatment. The Virtual MSK Care Program is considered a wellness program. HealthJoy does not provide any services that must be undertaken by a licensed medical provider. Any health-related information provided to participants in connection with the Virtual MSK Care Program is intended to be general in nature and should not be used as a substitute for a visit with a healthcare professional or for a treatment plan prescribed and coordinated by a healthcare professional.
The Service, which includes our HealthJoy App and Site, and its entire contents, features, and functionality, including without limitation all information, copyrights, patents, trademarks, service marks, and trade names, as well as all logos, text, design, graphics, displays, video, logos, icons, images, audio, downloads, interfaces, code, and software, as well as the selection and arrangement thereof, and all other intellectual property (collectively, the “Content”), are all proprietary and owned or controlled by HealthJoy, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws to the fullest extent possible.
These Terms permit you to use the Service and Content for your personal, non-commercial use only. A limited, revocable, non-exclusive, nontransferable license is granted to temporarily download one copy of the intellectual property displayed via the Service for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only.

Upon termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format. Except as expressly provided in these Terms, no assignments or license of intellectual property are granted by HealthJoy.
If you print, copy, modify, download, or otherwise use or provide any other person with access to any part of the Site, HealthJoy App, or any other component of the Service in breach of these Terms, your right to use the Service will stop immediately and you must, at our option, return or destroy any copies of the materials you have made. No right, title, or interest in or to the Service or any Content is transferred to you, and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by the HealthJoy. Any use of the Service, HealthJoy App, or Site not expressly permitted by these Terms is a breach of these Terms and may violate copyright, trademark, and other laws.

RELIANCE ON INFORMATION POSTED
The Content presented on or through the Service, including via the Site or HealthJoy App, is made available solely for general information purposes. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or usefulness of any Content. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk. We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by you or any other visitor to the Site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
While HealthJoy provides limited healthcare services, the Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Therefore, you should always seek the advice of your primary care physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. HealthJoy does not intend to interfere with your primary care physician’s or other qualified health provider’s medical advice, and you should never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the HealthJoy App or Site. No Content (other than information you receive from qualified healthcare providers) should be considered medical advice or an endorsement, representation, or warranty that any particular medication or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you.
This Site may include content provided by third parties, including but not limited to materials provided by other users. All statements and opinions expressed in these materials, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the Content provided by the HealthJoy, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity providing those materials.

If we make any material changes, and you have registered to use the Service, we will also send an email to you at the last email address you provided to us or display a prominent notice within the Service. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Site or Service following the posting of revised Terms will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.

You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to the Service or portions of it using your user name, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. 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 other personal information.
We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.

HealthJoy may assume that any communications it receives through your account have been made by you unless HealthJoy receives notice otherwise. HealthJoy expressly disclaims any liability from misuse of your account.
You will not sell, transfer, or assign your account or any account rights. Accounts may only be set up by the individual that is the subject of the account, and who is of the age of majority. We generally do not review accounts for authenticity and are not responsible for any unauthorized accounts that may appear on the Service. For any dispute as to account creation or authenticity, we shall have the sole right, but are not obligated, to resolve such dispute as we determine appropriate in our sole and exclusive discretion, with or without notice.
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE BY ANYONE USING YOUR PASSWORD AND IDENTIFICATION WHETHER OR NOT SUCH ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE IS ACTUALLY AUTHORIZED BY YOU, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL COMMUNICATIONS, TRANSMISSIONS, ORDERS, PAYMENTS, FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS, AND OTHER OBLIGATIONS INCURRED THROUGH SUCH ACCESS OR USE.
Some features of the Service may require you to make certain payments. Any fees that HealthJoy may charge you for your use of or access to the Service are due immediately when charged by HealthJoy and are non-refundable. This no refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate your usage; our decision to terminate your usage; any disruption caused to our Service, whether planned, accidental or intentional; or any reason whatsoever. HealthJoy reserves the right to determine and change any payment term, rate, mechanism, or structure at any time with notice to you. HealthJoy, in its sole discretion, may offer credits or refunds on a case-by-case basis.
Fees will be displayed in United States Dollars. By confirming your purchase at the end of the checkout process, you agree to accept and pay the fees as well as all applicable taxes and currency conversion fees.
HealthJoy may use third party services to process payments, which have their own separate terms of service. While HealthJoy will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all payment information such as credit cards or bank account numbers, HealthJoy expressly disclaims any liability for any damage that may result should any third parties gain access to such information, and you agree to hold HealthJoy harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.
You represent and warrant that you have the right to use any credit card or other means of payment that you provide to us. All billing information you provide to us must be current, complete, truthful, and accurate. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information is a breach of these Terms and may result in cancellation of your account. In addition, verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any purchase or transaction. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any purchase or transaction for any reason including limitations on availability, inaccuracies, or errors in service or pricing information, or other problems identified by us, such as fraud.
HealthJoy may request a pre-authorization for some purchases made online with a credit or debit card. This pre-authorization will not be billed to you; however, your card issuer may hold this amount for a short period. Your card issuer determines the length of time the pre-authorization is held. We do this to ensure that the card details are still valid and that you have sufficient funds to complete the transaction. We are not responsible for any fees or charges that your bank or credit card issuer may apply.

HEALTHJOY HEALTHCARE SERVICES
HealthJoy allows you to access healthcare-related services, including on-demand, virtual urgent care for minor health concerns (“Virtual Consults”). Virtual Consults may be performed by live chat, audio, or video. By engaging the Service and, specifically, Virtual Consults, you assent to these Terms and further acknowledge and agree to the following provisions:
- HealthJoy, LLC makes professional medical services available to you, but you understand and accept that HealthJoy and its concierge team only provide general information services and do not practice medicine. Only HealthJoy healthcare providers, who are licensed medical professionals and independent contractors of HealthJoy, may provide professional medical services to you.
- By participating in a Virtual Consult, you further acknowledge and agree that each of HealthJoy’s healthcare providers is responsible for his or her services and compliance with the requirements applicable to his or her profession and license and that neither HealthJoy nor its concierge team participates in or interferes with the practice of medicine by any of HealthJoy’s healthcare providers. You engage in a physician-patient relationship with HealthJoy healthcare providers, and not HealthJoy or its concierge team, when you participate in a Virtual Consult.
- You also acknowledge and agree that all medical diagnoses and prescriptions that may be sought by you through HealthJoy are limited in type and duration. Accordingly, you may not request any diagnosis or prescription of any type or duration that is not permitted by HealthJoy, and if you do make such a request, you understand that HealthJoy healthcare providers will refer you to your primary healthcare physician or other qualified healthcare provider in such circumstances. Moreover, if your medical condition warrants emergency help, HealthJoy’s healthcare providers will direct you to the local hospital emergency room.
- HealthJoy healthcare providers may not and will not prescribe you:
- Prescriptions for narcotics or any controlled substances listed in 21 C.F.R. §§ 1308.11-1308.14 (Drug Enforcement Administration Schedules I, II, III, and IV)
- Prescriptions for medications that are restricted by states
- Prescriptions for medications for psychiatric illnesses
- Prescriptions for lifestyle medications such as erectile dysfunction or diet drugs
- HealthJoy and its healthcare providers are not substitutes for health insurance, your primary care physician, or in-person healthcare interactions, and you acknowledge, accept, and agree not to use HealthJoy or any of its healthcare providers as substitutes for health insurance, your primary care physician, or in-person healthcare interactions. Accordingly, you shall not delay in seeking advice from your primary care physician or other qualified healthcare providers due to any information provided by HealthJoy or a HealthJoy healthcare provider, and you agree to seek emergency help when needed and continue to consult your primary care physician.
- You acknowledge and agree that while HealthJoy takes all reasonable measures to safeguard your medical records and other health information in accordance with applicable law, no computer, phone, or other system is totally secure. With this in mind, you consent to the entry of your medical records and health information into HealthJoy’s computer database knowingly and voluntarily.
- You understand and agree that Virtual Consults involve the communication of your medical information, both orally and visually, to physicians and other health care practitioners who may be located in other parts of or outside the state or jurisdiction in which you are located.
- You also understand and agree that by using HealthJoy we may automatically send your own personal health information and related reminders to you, and you opt into receiving this information by email, mobile notification, or using other contact information provided by you in your account settings. You may opt out of receiving any such communication via email or mobile notification at any time through your account settings. If you prefer not to receive or do not consent to the receipt of personal health information by email or mobile notification, you agree to update your account notification settings before using HealthJoy or any features utilizing reminders.
- HealthJoy is not responsible for the data bandwidth, signal strength, or internet or data connectivity of your mobile device or computer.
- You agree to refrain from abusive language and engaging in inappropriate behavior when with HealthJoy’s healthcare providers during a Virtual Consult. You also agree that such healthcare providers may terminate any Virtual Consult at any time should inappropriate behavior or language be used or, if in the physician’s sole judgment , the consult is no longer appropriate or productive.
- You further agree to refrain from contacting or seeking to contact the healthcare provider for telemedicine care outside of the HealthJoy platform. This protects both patients and physicians by ensuring clinical care is delivered in a reliable, continuous, and controlled platform. HealthJoy is not responsible for any interactions with healthcare providers that are not conducted on the HealthJoy platform.
- HealthJoy complies with all applicable law, including but not limited to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).
- You represent and warrant to us that, to the extent you enter “protected health information” (as such term is defined under HIPAA) for a third person, you are legally authorized to do so on behalf of such third person, and such third person has validly consented to your inputting of, and your review of, his or her protected health information on HealthJoy and via the HealthJoy App.
- HealthJoy is for personal use in accordance with local, state, and federal law only and may not be used for commercial purposes. Licensed U.S. doctors and other qualified healthcare providers may apply to participate on HealthJoy for educational purposes or to provide patient consults via HealthJoy only.
- You understand and agree that using HealthJoy reveals personally identifiable information of members that will be visible to the healthcare providers with whom you interact.

WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICE (OR ANY PART THEREOF) WILL BE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR ERROR-FREE; THAT ANY PARTICULAR SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE, WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE SERVICE; OR THAT ANY PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRODUCTS SATISFY ANY GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS REQUIRING DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION ON SUCH PRODUCTS.
YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO (A) OBTAIN AND PAY FOR ANY SOFTWARE, HARDWARE AND SERVICES (INCLUDING INTERNET CONNECTIVITY) NEEDED TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE AND (B) ENSURE THAT ANY SOFTWARE, HARDWARE, AND SERVICES THAT YOU USE WILL FUNCTION CORRECTLY WITH THE SERVICE, AS WE ASSUME NO LIABILITY FOR OR RELATING TO THE DELAY, FAILURE, INTERRUPTION, OR CORRUPTION OF ANY DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION TRANSMITTED IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE SITE OR HEALTHJOY APP. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MUST EVALUATE, AND THAT YOU BEAR ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH, THE USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING ANY RELIANCE ON THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, OR USEFULNESS OF ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE.
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE, NOR FOR ANY DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF OTHER INTANGIBLES, LOSS OF SECURITY OF INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, UNAUTHORIZED INTERCEPTION OF ANY SUCH INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTIES, OR ANY INJURIES, INCLUDING WRONGFUL DEATH, EVEN IF ADVISED IN ADVANCE OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES. FURTHER, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR FROM ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS ON THE SERVICE. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SERVICE IS TO STOP USING THE SERVICE. OUR MAXIMUM LIABILITY FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE SHALL BE THE TOTAL AMOUNT, IF ANY, PAID BY YOU TO US TO ACCESS AND USE THE SERVICE, AND SHALL NOT EXCEED $250 USD.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW FOR LIMITATIONS ON CERTAIN IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF CERTAIN DAMAGES; SOLELY TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH LAW APPLIES TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS. IF APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF A PARTY’S LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY SUCH PARTY’S NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, OR ANY OTHER MATTER, THEN SUCH PARTY’S LIABILITY WILL NOT BE LIMITED OR EXCLUDED TO THE EXTENT OF SUCH PROHIBITION UNDER SUCH APPLICABLE LAW.
If you are a California resident, you agree to consciously waive all claims, both known and unknown that may be later discovered, to the maximum extent permitted by law, including but not limited to that permitted by California Civil Code Section 1542, which states “[a] general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
HealthJoy may assign the Terms or any part of them, and HealthJoy may delegate any of its obligations under the Terms. You may not assign the Terms or any part of them, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under the Terms, to any third party.
Except to the extent prohibited under applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless HealthJoy and its officers, directors, employees, licensors, suppliers, and agents from and against any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs, that may arise from or in connection with (a) your use of, or activities in connection with, the Service, including use of any good, product, or service purchased through the Service, (b) violation of these Terms by you, and (c) the acts or omissions of any other user. If you fail to promptly indemnify and defend a covered claim, HealthJoy shall have the right to defend itself, and in such case, you shall promptly reimburse HealthJoy for all of its associated costs and expenses. HealthJoy reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to your indemnification.
ARBITRATION, CHOICE OF LAW, AND VENUE
Any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be submitted to and settled exclusively by binding arbitration, in accordance with the provisions of this section, subject only to any applicable requirement of law that you and HealthJoy engage in a preliminary, non-binding mediation or arbitration. Binding arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s rules (the “AAA Rules”). Arbitration shall be held in Cook County, Illinois, and shall be held before an arbitrator selected pursuant to the AAA Rules who shall have no personal or pecuniary interest, either directly or indirectly, from any business or familial relationship with either you or us. The arbitrator(s) shall be bound to adjudicate all disputes in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois and all decisions of the arbitrator will be final, binding, and conclusive on you and HealthJoy. Either you or HealthJoy may seek confirmation of the arbitration award in the Illinois state courts in and for Cook County, Illinois, and both parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the Illinois state courts in and for Cook County, Illinois in any claim or action arising under this arbitration provision.
YOU AND WE ALSO AGREE TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. ADDITIONALLY, UNLESS YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. ALSO, TO THE EXTENT AVAILABLE BY LAW, AND SUBJECT TO THE DAMAGE LIMITATIONS DISCUSSED HEREIN, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR, AND FOR THE BENEFIT OF, THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF.
All costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and experts’ fees, incurred by you or HealthJoy in any dispute that is determined and settled by arbitration or some other proceeding pursuant to these Terms shall be borne by the party determined to be liable in respect to such dispute; provided, however, that if complete liability is not assessed against only one party, then you and HealthJoy will share the total costs in proportion to their respective amounts of liability so determined. Except where clearly prevented by the area in dispute, you and we agree to continue performing their respective obligations under these Terms until the dispute is resolved.
If it is determined that arbitration is not permitted, has been waived, or is otherwise unavailable, then the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms shall be an appropriate state or federal court located in Cook County, Illinois. You and HealthJoy hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of the State of Illinois and the jurisdiction and venue of said courts. You and HealthJoy further agree that the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to the principles of conflict of laws, shall govern these Terms and any dispute, claim, or controversy that has arisen or may arise related to these Terms. This paragraph shall not be read to conflict with the mandatory arbitration provision.
WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
No waiver by the HealthJoy of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the HealthJoy to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
