Welcome to Upheal! These Terms of Service (this “Agreement” or “Terms”) form an agreement between you (“you”or“User”) and Upheal Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Upheal”, “we,” or “us”) regarding the provision of Upheal's platform that enables Users to enter online sessions with healing professionals, which include psychotherapists, coaches, psychiatrists, body workers, spiritual directors, physicians, healers, nurses and anyone who meets with clients for the purposes of healing and growth.
You must read, agree to, acknowledge, and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement in order to use our website and all affiliated websites, including mobile websites, owned and operated by us, our predecessors or successors in interest, or our affiliates (collectively, the “Websites”), all services, applications, software, features and products that are accessible through our Websites (“Platform”) that link to or reference this Agreement (collectively the “Services”) whether provided by us or our affiliates. The materials contained in the Services are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law. Your use of the Service is subject to the terms of this Agreement, which may be updated from time to time.
We may modify these Terms at any time and at our sole discretion. You must consent to any updated Terms before you continue using the Services following any update to these Terms. We invite you to check this page regularly for updates to these Terms.
2. Abusive Conduct
The Platform can not be used for actions that are illegal, against good morals, or exploit the Platform in a technical way. If a User does act in this way, Upheal has the right to immediately terminate this Agreement with such User and restrict or prevent their use of a Platform.
3. Being a User
The User is a person who uses the Platform to enter online therapy sessions led by a healing professional of their choosing (“Session”). To become a User, the person will need to receive a link from their healing professional (“Customer”) with an invitation to join a Session.
The User does not create an account on the Platform and uses the Services by clicking on the link in the invitation to join a Session.
To use the Platform and enter sessions, you must be at least 16 years old. For Users under the age of 16 or anyone else who has a legal representative (e.g. a legal guardian), parental permission or consent of the relevant legal representative is required to use the Platform.
The Services of Upheal are provided to the Users without any charge. Any fees and payments associated with Services are paid by the Customer (i.e. the healing professional).
Upheal is not responsible for your internet access fees or mobile data usage (or other means of connecting) while you use our Services.
You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not (by yourself or through a third party):
Use the Platform to pursue any abusive conduct as outlined in Section 2 of these Terms;
Use the Services to pursue any illegal activities as defined by the law of any applicable jurisdiction;
Sell the Services to a third party without explicit consent of Upheal;
Modify or reverse engineer the Services;
Attempt to compromise the security of the Platform and/or the Websites;
Impersonate another person; and
Give access to the Services to any third party by using your login account credentials.
We are making our best effort to implement industry standard security measures in our Services. You are responsible for keeping your data safe.
Users are not allowed to use the Services and the Platform within the territory (or in the interests of business conducted in the territory) of the Russian Federation.
6. Upheal’s Role
We proactively monitor the usage of Upheal to make sure Customers (ie. the mental health clinicians using the Platform) and Users follow these Terms. We also investigate reports of potential violations.
In most cases, we will work with Customers and Users to resolve any potential violations and allow the Customer or User to continue using Upheal. Terminating Customers' accounts is not an action we take lightly and is done in only the most extreme cases.
Upheal reserves the right to restrict or remove a Customer or a User from Platform, including if they violate our Platform policies as outlined in the section ‘Restrictions’.
Please let us know if you notice any potential violations of these Terms.
We are constantly testing out new features with the goal of making Upheal better. We may add or remove features, and we often test features with a random subset of our community. If we believe a feature is significantly different from these Terms, then we explain those differences in the test. You acknowledge that we may change or deprecate the features of the Services.
Upheal does not recommend or endorse any of the Customers and does not make any representations or warranties about the license, training, skill, or quality of service of any Customer that is using the Platform.
