Terms of Use – Wellness Connected™ Site and Service

Last revised July 17, 2014

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE SETTING UP A Wellness Connected™ ACCOUNT OR USING THE Wellness Connected™ SITE. BY SETTING UP AN ACCOUNT OR USING THE SITE YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF USE; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT SET UP AN ACCOUNT OR USE THE SITE.

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) are a binding contract between you and A&D Engineering, Inc., dba A&D Medical (“A&D” or “we”, “our” “us”) for use of the Wellness Connected Site located at www.wellnessconnected.com (the “Site”) and the Service (defined below).

Please note that we do not provide warranties for the Site or the Service. This contract also limits our liability. For details see Sections 8 and 9.

1. The Service

The Service is a health and fitness platform on line in which you can store, collect, edit and share health and fitness information generated by your use of A&D devices, such as scales, blood pressure monitors and activity monitors, or otherwise provided by you (the “Service”). The Service is made available by A&D at no charge. To use the Service, you set up a Wellness Connected account (“User Account”) and you link the account to your applicable A&D devices through an A&D mobile app (A&D Connect™ app) or PC software (“A&D Software”). Any A&D Software is governed exclusively by the license presented with the software when it was downloaded or otherwise obtained. Each A&D device creates its own record. Only A&D branded devices and other products distributed by A&D and certain third party products that have been approved by A&D for use with the Service (collectively “A&D devices”) can be linked to the User Account.

A&D is not responsible for the content or activities in your User Account. You are solely responsible for all use of and all activities in your User Account, whether or not authorized by you.

You can choose to provide information in your User Account to others (such as family members, friends, personal trainers, coaches, medical professionals or to social media). Some sharing may require the use of separate third party programs or systems to interact with the Service (“Other Programs”). Your use of any Other Program is solely between you and the applicable third party and is governed exclusively by the service agreement, terms of use and privacy statement of such Other Program, not by these Terms or A&D’s Privacy Statement. The terms relating to these Other Programs do not apply to the Service, the Site or your relationship with A&D.

If you link your User Account or A&D devices with health and fitness accounts on third party websites, then the service agreements, terms of use and privacy statements of such third party websites exclusively apply to such accounts – not these Terms and not A&D ‘s Privacy Statement.

A&D may from time to time offer a number of separate third party products and services on the Site or through the Service that may complement or enhance your use of the Service or A&D devices (such as health clubs, weight loss programs and sports and fitness equipment). Even though A&D believes these third party products and services may be helpful, A&D does not control these products and services and A&D is not responsible in any way for any of these products or services or for the terms of use, privacy practices or actions of such third parties.

The Site or the Service may contain links to third-party websites. Such links are provided solely as a convenience for you. Such links do NOT imply that A&D has reviewed or endorses the content of such third party websites. You will need to make your own independent judgment regarding your interaction with these linked sites. A&D is not responsible for the terms of use or privacy practices of such third party websites or for any actions of such third parties.

2. Changes in Terms, the Site or the Service; Cancelation

A&D reserves the right to change these Terms in any way, at any time and from time to time, in its sole discretion and without prior notice. A link to the most current Terms will be available on the Site’s home page. You are responsible for checking these Terms periodically for changes. If you do not agree with changes to these Terms, you must cancel and stop using the Service. By continuing to use the Site or the Service following the posting of changes you accept and agree to the changed Terms and the changed Terms will apply to you.

As long as you comply with these Terms (as they are in effect from time to time), A&D grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable limited privilege and license to enter and use the Site and use the Service.

At any time, A&D may change, suspend, terminate or discontinue the Site or the Service in whole or in part, including, without limitation, the availability of any feature, in each case without any notice or liability. Without limiting the above, A&D may at any time remove, modify, add to or otherwise change any content on or from the Site, including any User Account, link or third party content. If data is stored with an expiration date, we may delete the data as of that date. A&D may impose limits on certain features or services or restrict access to part or all of the Site or the Service without notice or liability.

You may cancel the Service at any time and for any reason or no reason. A&D may terminate your use of the Site or the User Account at any time and for any reason or no reason.

If your Service or User Account is canceled (including cancelation by you), your right to use the Service stops immediately and we may permanently delete your User Account and data. Deleted data are likely not retrievable. You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for backing up the data that you store on the Service. Upon cancelation, your ability to access and use Other Programs may also stop immediately. We have no obligation to return any data to you after the Service is canceled.

The provisions of Sections 5, 7-11, and those that by their terms or nature apply after termination of this contract will survive any termination of this contract.

3. Requirements for Use of the Service

In order to protect the Service or our customers or to stop a violation of these Terms, A&D retains the right to block or otherwise prevent delivery of any type of email or communication to or from the Service even if that means that your use of the Service may be hindered or prevented. We are not responsible for any such hindrance or inability to use the Service.

A&D reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to deny account sign-up or to ban or terminate access to the Service or any User Account by users for any reason or no reason, including, without limitation, for any violation of the Terms.

User Accounts are not for use by healthcare providers or for other medical or case management purposes or for any other commercial or non-personal purpose. Any information in a User Account may not be accurate or up-to-date and should be viewed by any healthcare provider as informational only. User Account records are not “designated record sets” as defined under US regulations. If a healthcare provider decides to include any data made available from a User Account record in its own records, it should store a copy on its own system.
