    3. The Site and the Services are intended for access and use by individuals over 18 years of age. You represent and warrant (i) that you are at least 18 years old and reside in a state in the United States in which our Services may legally be provided, and (ii) you are the person whose name and other information have been provided for the Member account that you have or are creating. You agree that all samples that are sent to the lab using the test kit you receive shall be only samples from you and no other person.
  6. The Services.
    1. EverlyWell’s Services may include two different categories of tests: (i) non-genomic tests and (ii) genomic tests. All Member requests for non-genomic tests are reviewed by a licensed physician. We have partnered with a company that has physicians (“Health Consultants”) in the states where our Members reside and who are authorized by state law to review Member test requests. Test kits for non-genomic tests will only be mailed to you after your test is authorized and ordered by a licensed physician or Health Consultant. Requests for genomic tests do not require review by a licensed physician or Health Consultant.
    2. Members may purchase Services on a per kit basis (“Kit Fee”) or, as available, on a subscription basis (“Subscription Fee”) which entitles Members to request one test kit per month, quarter, or bi-annually, depending on the plan you select. You select the desired test kit on our Site, or through an authorized third party. Your desired test kit will be mailed to you after any applicable physician review and authorization. You collect the applicable biological sample(s) and complete any required information, which may include medical information, required waivers, consents or authorizations. Failure to provide the required information or to execute the required documents may result in your sample(s) not being tested. You mail the completed test kit and biological sample(s) to one of our designated testing laboratory partners (“Lab”) which performs the testing independent of us. Biological samples shall consist solely of human fluids and/or tissue samples, depending on the test purchased, that are intended to be analyzed for the individual’s sole use, and not for any other purpose, including but not limited to research, publications, commercial uses, or any other purpose other than to inform the purchaser’s health and/or wellness. Do not mail the test kit or sample(s) to us. The Lab sends the results of genomic tests directly to us. The results of non-genomic tests are sent to the Health Consultants who review and release the test results to us. We provide the genomic and non-genomic test results to you via our Site in an easy to understand format. A Health Consultant will make reasonable efforts to contact you if your results are clinically significant or fall outside of our established normal ranges.
    3. When and where available, for an additional fee (“Consultation Fee”), you may purchase an additional, separate consultation with a Health Consultant through our Site. When and where available, you may also purchase other goods and services from third parties which we may make available to you. We are not responsible, or liable to you or any third party, for the content of accuracy of any materials, goods, or services provided by any third parties.
    4. EverlyWell implements several safeguards to avoid technical errors, however some samples are less viable by the time they reach the lab and may fail analysis. We will send you a free replacement kit if your sample fails.
  7. Fees and Payment.
    1. You agree to be responsible for the payment of all fees when due. Kit Fees and Consultation Fees will be paid at the time of purchase. If you purchase a subscription, your credit card will be charged in accordance with the subscription frequency you select (for example, monthly, quarterly, or bi-annually) at the beginning of the month for the Subscription Fee.
    2. All fees are as quoted on the Site. We may revise our fees from time to time in our discretion. We will provide you with notice of any increase in the Subscription Fee by email or by posting on the Site.
    3. If you purchase a subscription, you agree to keep your credit card information current. If the credit card you use for the Subscription Fee becomes invalid or declined, we will contact you by email so that you can update the card information. Failure to update your credit card information within ten days may result in termination of your account.
    4. When and where available, payment of the Consultation Fee will allow you to schedule an appointment with a Health Consultant. If you cancel a scheduled appointment with a Health Consultant without providing the required prior notice as described on the Site, you will be charged a cancellation fee.
    5. We will refund the applicable fees if, after the applicable review, a Health Consultant does not authorize and order the non-genomic test(s) you requested.
    6. If you decide to cancel your request, we will refund the applicable fees as long as the requested test kit has not shipped (typically 1–2 business days). If you decide to cancel your request and we have already shipped your order, $15 USD per test kit will be subtracted from the potential refund. If you have already received your kit(s) but have not yet sent your sample(s) to the lab, you may request a refund (less the $15 USD per kit) for up to 60 days from when you first placed your order. EverlyWell will not refund any orders that are more than 60 days old. You may email us at [email protected] for assistance with refunds.
    7. If EverlyWell determines that you have used the Platform and Services in a way inconsistent with the outlined policies, we reserve the right to suspend your account and not provide a refund.
  8. Feedback You Give Us and Content You Provide.
    1.

User Content does not include Protected Health Information that you may provide or submit to us when requesting tests or Services.
    2. You are responsible for all User Content that you post on our Site. You may not post User Content that: is not your own original creation or that you do not have permission to use (keep in mind that just because something on the internet does not have a copyright notice on it doesn’t mean you can use it without permission); infringes the copyright, trademark, patent right, or other proprietary right of any person or that is used without the permission of the owner; you know to be inaccurate; is pornographic, sexually explicit, or obscene; exploits children or minors; violates the rights of privacy or publicity of any person; is harassing, libelous, slanderous, or defamatory; contains any personally identifying information about any person without their consent or about any person who is a minor; may be deemed generally offensive to the community, including blatant expressions of bigotry, prejudice, racism, hatred, profanity or religious or political radicalism; includes advertisements, promotions, solicitations, spam, or offers to sell any goods or services for any commercial purpose; is off topic; is intended to provide professional advice, including but not limited to, the provision of medical treatment, or legal, financial or investment advice; is intended to solicit, recommend, endorse, or offer to buy or sell any securities or other financial instruments, tout stocks, or recommend that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction, or investment strategy is suitable for you or any specific person; violates any local, state, federal, and/or international laws or regulations; promotes or provides instructional information about illegal or illicit activities; contains software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs designed to destroy, interrupt, or otherwise limit the functionality of any computer software, computer hardware, or other equipment; or, is intended to overwhelm, cause technical disruptions of or denial of service to our servers.

Your continued use of the Site or the Service indicates that you accept such modifications.
  10. No Medical or Health Services. You acknowledge that we are neither a health advisor or a testing lab, and we do not provide medical, health or other professional services or advice, nor do we ourselves perform any testing on your samples. You acknowledge that Health Consultants are not employees of EverlyWell and are not providing services on behalf of EverlyWell, but instead are independent professionals solely responsible for the services each provides to you.
  11. HIPAA Acknowledgment. You understand that we are not a “covered entity” as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the regulations promulgated under that Act (“HIPAA”). You understand that your Health Consultants and the Labs are or may be “covered entities” that are subject to the provisions of HIPAA, so your health information provided to us by a Lab or your Health Consultants may be subject to or protected by HIPAA. You agree to provide a separate HIPAA Privacy Authorization available at https://www.everlywell.com/hipaa-and-telehealth-consent before accessing our Services. You authorize us to provide this Authorization to the Health Consultants and Labs and understand that the Health Consultants and Labs may require you to execute additional documents authorizing their disclosure of your information. You understand that once your information is shared, federal privacy laws may no longer protect it from further disclosure; Health Consultants and others you authorize will have access to your information. We will protect your information and use your information only as provided for in this Agreement, our Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and your applicable HIPAA Privacy Authorization and Consent for Services.
  12. Assignment and Transfer.
    1. You shall not assign, transfer or convey this Agreement or any obligations thereunder without our prior written consent. Any assignment, transfer or conveyance by you in violation of this Agreement shall be of no power or effect.

You also consent to your personal information, including sensitive information, being transferred in the event of a business transition such as, but not limited to, a merger, sale, asset or stock acquisition by another company, or other transaction or proceeding. In such a case, your information would be used as set out in our Privacy Policy.
