4.3. App Stores and Third Party Fees.
You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Application is dependent on the third party from whom you downloaded the Application (e.g., the Apple App Store® or Google Play™) (“App Store”). You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and WWHI and not with the App Store. As between WWHI and the App Store, WWHI and not the App Store, is solely responsible for the Application, Documentation, Materials, addressing any claims relating to the Application (e.g., product liability, legal compliance, or consumer protection) and, if made available by WWHI, maintenance, support services, and warranty for the Application. You agree to pay all fees (if any) charged by the App Store in connection with the Application. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Application is conditioned upon your compliance with, all applicable third party terms and conditions (e.g., the App Store’s terms and policies) related to the Application.
The following applies to any Application accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store:
(i) You will only use the Apple App Store sourced Application (1) on an Apple-branded product that runs the iOS, and (2) as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service, as they may be revised from time to time.
(ii) In the event of any failure of the Apple App Store sourced Application to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price (if any) for such Application to you and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Apple App Store sourced Application. As between WWHI and Apple, any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of WWHI.
(iii) You and WWHI acknowledge that, in the event of any third party claim that the Apple App Store sourced Application or your possession and use of that Apple App Store sourced Application infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, as between WWHI and Apple, WWHI, not Apple, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by these Terms.
(iv) You and WWHI acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these Terms as related to your license of the Apple App Store sourced Application, and that, upon your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as related to your license of the Apple App Store sourced Application against you as a third party beneficiary of these Terms.
Ownership of Content, Documentation, and Materials.
You acknowledge and agree that all Content, Documentation and Materials is the exclusive property of and owned by WWHI or its licensors and is protected by copyright, trademark, trade dress and various other intellectual property rights and unfair competition laws. These marks and copyrights may not be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or in part, without the express prior written permission from their respective owners, and then with the proper acknowledgments. Nothing on or in the Services, Content, Documentation, or Materials will be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any trademark, logo or service mark displayed on the Services, Content, Documentation, or Materials without the owner’s prior written permission, except as otherwise described in these Terms.
WWHI RETAINS ALL RIGHT, TITLE, AND INTEREST IN THE APPLICATION, CONTENT, DOCUMENTATION AND MATERIALS AND ALL RIGHTS NOT EXPRESSLY GRANTED IN THESE TERMS ARE RESERVED. You will not, nor will you permit anyone else over which you exercise control, including but not limited to those individuals you invited to participate in or otherwise monitor your health, to (a) except as expressly permitted in Sections 4.1(c) (addressing copies) and 4.2(b) (addressing copies), copy or reproduce the Application, Content, Documentation, or Materials in whole or in part; (b) modify, translate, or create derivative works of the Application, Content, Documentation, or Materials; (c) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to gain the source code to the Website or the Application except to the extent the foregoing restrictions are expressly prohibited by applicable law; (d) distribute, sublicense, assign, share, timeshare, sell, rent, lease, grant a security interest in, use for service bureau purposes or otherwise transfer the Application, Content, Documentation, or Materials; (e) export, re-export, divert or transfer the Application, Content, Documentation, or Materials to any country that is embargoed by the United States or designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; (f) unless expressly authorized by WWHI in writing, authorize or undertake a penetration test, vulnerability scan, social engineering test or any other similar activity against the Services or WWHI; (g) interfere with or attempt to interfere with the proper functioning of the Services; (h) access the Application, Content, Documentation, or Materials to build a competitive product or service; or (i) violate these Terms. Any unauthorized use of the Application, Content, Documentation, or Materials terminates the licenses WWHI granted to you pursuant to these Terms.
Feedback and Use of Created Materials.
You agree that submission of any ideas, suggestions, documents, or proposals to WWHI through its suggestion form, feedback form, wiki, forum, support email, or similar means (collectively, the “Feedback”) is at your own risk and that WWHI has no obligations (including without limitation obligations of confidentiality) with respect to such Feedback. You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to submit the Feedback. You hereby grant to WWHI a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, and nonexclusive right and license to use, copy, reformat, display, perform, modify, disclose, distribute, adapt, create derivative works of, and otherwise commercially or non-commercially exploit in any manner, any and all Feedback, and to sublicense the foregoing rights.
SHARING YOUR INFORMATION AND VIDEO CONSENT.
By using the Application, you acknowledge that WWHI may share the information you input into the Application, including, but not limited to, health information, or the information the Application otherwise gathers, collects or records (collectively, the “Records”) with your participating medical provider and you consent to WWHI sharing such Records with your participating medical provider. You acknowledge that WWHI has no control over how your participating medical provider may use or disclose your Records and, to the fullest extent permissible by law, you assume any and all risk, known or unknown, that arises from or is related to your participating medical provider and such providers use of the HealthKOS™ patient communication platform and the Records. Your participating medical provider is required to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) as well as more restrictive state laws, as applicable, in such providers use and disclosure of your health information. You may read your participating medical provider’s Notice of Privacy Practices for additional details on how the provider uses and discloses your health information.
Family, Friends, and Other Third Parties.
The Application permits you to invite others, such as your family members and friends, to participate in your healthcare (the “Invited Third Parties”). You may do so by, for example, sending them an e-mail invitation from the Application. You understand that WWHI will disclose some or all of your Records to the Invited Third Parties. These Invited Third Parties may, for example, receive alerts about your blood pressure and other healthcare metrics as well as your use of or failure to use the Application. You acknowledge that WWHI has no control over how Invited Third Parties may use or disclose your Records and, to the fullest extent permissible by law, you assume any and all risk, known or unknown, that arises from or is related to the Invited Third Parties and their use of the Application or receipt of your Records.
Use of Video Conferencing.
The Application includes a video conferencing feature, which allows you and your participating medical provider to communicate real-time through a video conference call. In using the video conferencing feature, you agree and understand that:
(a) You are not required to use the video conferencing feature and you can stop using the feature at any time.
(b) You should not use the video feature until you discuss the risks, benefits, and consequences of using this feature with your medical provider.
(d) Your request to connect with your medical provider via a video conference call is not immediate. It may take your medical provider several hours or days to respond to your request to have a video conference. Accordingly, you will not rely on this video feature in the event of an emergency. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING AN EMERGENCY, DIAL 911 AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL.
(e) Your medical provider may have additional policies and procedures that govern your use of the video feature. Your provider may also require that you sign additional consent forms before this feature is available to you or before your provider will respond to your connection request. This feature is only available to you if your provider agrees to use the feature.
(f) Video and technology is not perfect. You may experience delays, downtime, and other connection issues when using the video feature, which may interfere with your use of the feature or otherwise compromise the quality of the services.
(g) While the video conferencing feature uses encryption to secure the connection, video conference calls may not be secure and could be subject to electronic tampering. For example, there may be other people standing in the room that are outside of the view of the camera. Also, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy and disclosure of your Records.
(h) Your medical provider may charge you a fee to use the video feature.
(i) In the event your provider uses the video feature to provide medical services, you understand that not all medical services are available when using the video feature. For example, in some circumstances, medical providers cannot write prescriptions for controlled substances when they see their patient over video. Additionally, the video visit may not be equal to a face-to-face visit because, unlike a traditional face-to-face visit, your medical provider does not have the use of the other senses such as touch or smell.

If you are an Invited Third Party, your account with WWHI will only be available to you so long as (1) the individual that issued you the invitation does not disable your invitation or you otherwise decline to accept invitation; (2) you do not unenroll from the HealthKOS™ patient communication platform; and (3) you comply with these Terms.

- CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
9.1. Definition of Confidential Information.
In receiving the services from WWHI, you may have access to or otherwise receive information from WWHI that is confidential or proprietary to WWHI (“Confidential Information”). For purposes of these Terms, “Confidential Information” includes all information in spoken, printed, electronic or any other form or medium, relating directly or indirectly to: (a) the Application, Documentation, or Materials; (b) information relating to WWHI’s business or financial affairs, including all financial information, pricing structures and policies, employee information, contractor information, know-how, processes, vendor lists, reports, product plans, marketing plans and techniques, management plans and techniques, negotiations, communications, internal controls, security procedures and controls, policies, handbooks, manner of operation, and trade secrets; and (c) any other information, knowledge or data, in whatever form or medium, concerning or relating to the business affairs of WWHI or of any other person or entity that has entrusted information to WWHI in confidence which is not generally known by the public at large and that should reasonably have been understood by you (because of legends or other markings, the circumstances of disclosure, or the nature of the information itself) to be proprietary or confidential to WWHI.
Confidential Information does not include any information that you can demonstrate by written records: (a) at the time of disclosure or thereafter is generally available to and known by the public (other than as a result of its disclosure by you or someone acting on your behalf); (b) was available to you on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure by WWHI or someone acting on its behalf; (c) becomes available to you on a non-confidential basis from a person who is not otherwise bound by a confidentiality agreement with WWHI, or by any other obligation of secrecy; (d) is independently developed by you without the aid, application or use of WWHI’s Confidential Information; or (e) subject to Section 9.4 (Required Disclosures), is required by law to be disclosed.
You agree not to use WWHI’s Confidential Information except in connection with the performance or use of the Services, as applicable, without the prior written consent of WWHI. Nothing in this Section prohibits you from exercising any of your statutory rights or to otherwise cooperate with any government investigation or audit.
Obligations to Protect.
You agree to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information, and to protect as a trade secret any portion of WWHI’s Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret, by using reasonable efforts, to prevent any unauthorized copying, use, distribution, disclosure, installation or transfer of possession of such Confidential Information.
In the event you or anyone acting on your behalf receives a request to disclose any Confidential Information under the terms of a valid and effective subpoena or order (including oral questions, interrogatories, requests for information or documents, civil investigative demand or similar process, or otherwise) issued by a court of competent jurisdiction, administrative agency or is otherwise legally compelled (collectively, the “Order”), unless otherwise prohibited in such Order, you agree to: (a) promptly notify WWHI of the existence, terms and circumstances surrounding such a request; (b) cooperate with WWHI to secure confidential treatment of the Confidential Information or to otherwise take legally available steps to resist or narrow such request; and (c) if disclosure of such Confidential Information is required, disclose to the person compelling disclosure only that portion of WWHI’s Confidential Information that is legally required.
You agree to indemnify and hold WWHI and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners, and licensors (collectively, the “WWHI Parties”) harmless from any losses, costs, liabilities, government investigations, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) relating to or arising out of: (a) any data you submit to or through the Services; (b) your use of, or inability to use, the Services; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation of any rights of another party; or (e) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

Reservation of Rights.
Impact of Jurisdiction and Relief.
IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS, THE LAW MAY NOT PERMIT OR MAY LIMIT THE DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU AND MAY BE LIMITED IN ITS APPLICATION.

The laws of the State of Florida, without regard to any conflicts of laws principles thereof, will govern the construction and interpretation of these Terms and the rights of the parties hereunder. The parties hereunder agree on behalf of themselves and any person claiming by or through them that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services will be an appropriate state or federal court located in Brevard County, Florida and each party irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, the defense of an inconvenient forum. You and WWHI agree that these Terms will not be governed by the following, the application of which is hereby expressly excluded: (a) the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and (b) the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, as enacted in any jurisdiction.
WWHI strives to provide you with excellent services. If you believe that WWHI has not met this goal or that WWHI did not comply with these Terms, please contact WWHI using one of the means set forth in Section 1 (How to Contact WWHI) to give WWHI the opportunity to address your concern.
WWHI may change these Terms from time to time. Please take a look at the “Last Modified” legend at the top of this page to see when these Terms were last revised. Any non-material changes to these Terms will become effective when WWHI posts the revised Terms on the Website or pushes them out to the Application, as applicable. When WWHI changes these Terms in a material way, WWHI will issue a Change Notice as described above.
WWHI reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Services, Content, Documentation, and Materials and to block or prevent future access to and use of the Services, Content, Documentation, or Materials. You may disable your account as described in Section 6 (Registration and Conduct) above.
- GENERAL TERMS.
The communications between you and WWHI use electronic means. You (a) consent to receive communications from WWHI in an electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that WWHI provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were to be in writing. The foregoing does not affect any statutory rights you may have.
These Terms, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without WWHI’s prior written consent, which may be withheld at WWHI’s sole discretion, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. WWHI may assign, subcontract, delegate, or otherwise transfer or sublicense any rights (including license rights) granted to WWHI hereto.
WWHI will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, materials, or changes in regulations.
YOU AND WWHI AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMSMUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
The parties hereto are independent contractors and nothing in these Terms is to imply an agency, joint venture, partnership, or fiduciary relationship between such parties.
WWHI may provide notice to you by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address on file with WWHI. Where WWHI requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing WWHI with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to WWHI is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required or permitted by these Terms, WWHI’s dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to WWHI at the mailing address set forth in Section 1. Such notice will be deemed given when received by WWHI by letter delivered by a nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail with receipt confirmation.
A printed version of these Terms will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based on or relating to use of the Services or these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of these Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will remain enforceable, and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Termination or expiration of these Terms for any reasons will not release either party hereto from any liabilities or obligations set forth in these Terms which remain to be performed or by their nature would be intended to be applicable following any such termination or expiration.
You may not use, export, import, or transfer the Services, Content, Documentation, or Materials except as authorized by U.S. law, the laws of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Services, Content, Documentation, or Materials, and any other applicable laws. In particular, but without limitation, the Services, Content, Documentation, and Materials may not be exported or re-exported (a) into any United States embargoed countries; or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Person’s List or Entity List. By using the Application, you represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. You also will not use the Application for any purpose prohibited by U.S. law, including the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons. You acknowledge and agree that products, services or technology provided by WWHI may be subject to the export control laws and regulations of the United States. To the extent applicable, you will comply with these laws and regulations and will not, without prior U.S. government authorization, export, re-export, or transfer WWHI products, services or technology, either directly or indirectly, to any country in violation of such laws and regulations.
