Section 1: What Does The App Do? How do I access the App?
The App is intended to provide a convenient platform for (1) pediatric patients and their parents/legal guardians to use to communicate with the patient’s healthcare provider; (2) pediatric patients to use to complete prescribed exercises in a fun and engaging way. The App is not intended for use by healthcare providers or patients for continuous patient monitoring in such a way that would allow immediate clinical action in an emergency situation.
The App is intended to be used on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop with a webcam. We do not manufacture these devices nor will we provide them to you or your child. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT USE OF THE APP MAY INVOLVE OR REQUIRE THE TRANSMISSION OF SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF DATA. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL DATA CHARGES THAT MAY BE CHARGED BY YOUR WIRELESS CARRIER OR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER OR THAT MAY OTHERWISE ARISE FROM YOUR USE OF THE APP.
Section 2: What Does Augment Therapy NOT Provide?
We do NOT provide medical advice. If at any time you are concerned about your care or your child’s care or treatment, or you believe or suspect or someone else advises you that you or your child has a serious or life-threatening condition, call 9-1-1 in areas where that service is available, or go to the nearest emergency room. Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from a physician or other qualified healthcare professional because of your or your child’s interaction with or use of the App.
The App cannot and is not designed, intended, or appropriate to replace the relationship between health care professionals and patients or to address serious, emergent, or life-threatening medical conditions and should not be used in those circumstances. Questions and information collected through the App are designed for informational and/or research purposes and to identify potential patterns in symptomologies and treatments; the App and/or any data derived from the App are in no way intended to replace the independent clinical judgment of a qualified healthcare professional.
Further, a provider’s or researcher’s use of our App is not an endorsement or recommendation of such provider or researcher by us. The medical advice provided to you or your child by your healthcare provider or any other professional is not under our control, nor do we provide it to you. We do not confirm the credentials of any healthcare professional using the App. We do not validate that any such persons are in good standing with their respective licensure board(s) or that they are using the App in accordance with laws applicable to the practice of medicine. You are responsible for confirming that a healthcare provider is in good standing with his or her respective licensing board(s) and exercising whatever other due diligence you determine appropriate in selecting and maintaining your choice of healthcare professionals.

If you breach any of these Terms, we may suspend or disable your account or terminate your or your child’s access to the App without prior notice to you.

If you wish to terminate your account, please contact Augment Therapy at firstname.lastname@example.org, immediately discontinue your and your child’s use of the App, and delete all files associated with the App from your computer or mobile device.
Section 17: Arbitration Agreement
You agree that any dispute between you, your child, and Augment Therapy arising out of or relating to these Terms will be governed by the dispute resolution procedure outlined below.
Before filing a claim against Augment Therapy, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days after submission, you may bring a formal proceeding, as outlined below.
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or a breach of these Terms, you must first attempt to settle the dispute with non-binding mediation through the American Health Lawyers Association (“AHLA”). You agree to join Augment Therapy in a joint demand for mediation and afterward jointly select a suitable mediator from the AHLA roster. If you and Augment Therapy cannot agree upon a mediator, the AHLA shall designate one. The mediation will be conducted according to the AHLA’s Agreement to Mediate. The findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the mediator shall be non-binding, confidential, and inadmissible in arbitration or any other subsequent proceeding.
Either you or Augment Therapy shall have the right to bypass mediation and/or reject the Mediator’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations, in which event, all claims and disputes shall be exclusively, fully, and finally resolved using binding arbitration through the AHLA. You and Augment Therapy agree to employ three (3) arbitrators (the “Panel”), where one arbitrator (1) is selected by you, one (1) is selected by Augment Therapy, and the third (3rd) is selected by mutual consent of you and Augment Therapy. If you and Augment Therapy cannot agree upon the third arbitrator, the first two (2) arbitrators chosen shall select the third arbitrator. The selection decision shall be binding. The arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online, and/or be solely based on written submissions— the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the Panel may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and Augment Therapy shall each pay 50% of all mediator and/or arbitrator costs, expenses, and fees incurred in connection with mediating and/or arbitrating under these Terms.
Any claim or dispute arising under these Terms must be initiated for mediation and/or arbitration within two (2) years from its accrual date. Any claim or dispute initiated two (2) years or longer from its accrual date shall be time-barred and dismissed.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Augment Therapy may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the App or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH AUGMENT THERAPY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED UNDER THESE TERMS.
Notwithstanding the above, you may decline or “opt out” of the alternative dispute resolution process described above by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and stating that you (first and last name) decline this dispute resolution process.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY NOT OPTING-OUT OF THE ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS DESCRIBED, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL TO WHICH YOU MAY OTHERWISE BE ENTITLED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ACTION OR LITIGATION IN ANY WAY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS.
If you opt-out of the dispute resolution process described in this section, or if any matter is otherwise determined not to be subject to such dispute resolution process, you hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting in the State of Ohio within twenty-five (25) miles of Chagrin Falls, Geauga County, Ohio in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms. You agree that any and all claims and matters arising out of these Terms, unless subject to the dispute resolution process described above, may be heard and determined in any such court, and you hereby waive any right to object to such filing on grounds of improper venue, forum non-conveniens, or other venue-related grounds, unless such objection asserts that the claim or matter in dispute is subject to determination through the dispute resolution process described above.
Section 18: General Contract Terms
Governing Law. These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio without reference to its conflict of laws provisions.
Assignment. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Augment Therapy’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Augment Therapy may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Notices. Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given: (i) by Augment Therapy via email (in each case to the address that you provide); and/or (ii) by posting to the App. For notices made by email, the notice will be effective as of the date the notice is first transmitted.
Miscellaneous. The failure of Augment Therapy to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Augment Therapy. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If, for any reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
