Terms and Conditions
The following are the Terms and Conditions (the "Contract") which govern your access and use of our online platform through which support may be provided (collectively the "Platform"). By accessing or using the Platform, you are entering into this Contract. If you do not agree to be bound to any term of this Contract, you must not access the Platform. When the terms "we", "us", "our" or similar are used in this Contract, they refer to any company that owns and operates the Platform (the "Company").
The Supporters and Support
The Platform may be used to connect you with an individual (“Supporter”) who will support you through the Platform (“Support”). Supporters are not assured to be accredited, trained, nor licensed psychologists (PhD / PsyD), marriage and family therapist (LMFT), clinical social worker (LCSW), professional Coach (LPC), or similar applicable recognized professional certification. We do not verify the skills, degrees, qualifications, credentials or background of any Supporter. While we may try to do so from time to time, in our sole discretion, you acknowledge that we do not represent to verify, and do not guarantee the verification of, the skills, degrees, qualifications, licensure, certification, credentials, competence or background of any Supporter. The Supporters are independent providers who are neither our employees nor agents nor representatives. The Platform’s role is limited to enabling Support while the Support itself is the responsibility of the Supporter who provides it. While we hope the Support is beneficial to you, you understand, agree and acknowledge that it may not be the appropriate solution for everyone’s needs and that it may not be appropriate for every particular situation. The Platform is not intended for the provision of clinical diagnosis or psychological advice. It is also not intended for any information regarding which drugs or medical treatment may be appropriate for you, and you should disregard any such advice if delivered through the platform. Do not disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining in-person care from your doctor or other qualified professional because of information or advice you received through the platform.
WE DO NOT WARRANT THE VALIDITY, ACCURACY, OR AVAILABILITY OF ANY CONTENT OR ADVICE PROVIDED BY SUPPORTERS AND WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES SUSTAINED BY USERS DUE TO RELIANCE ON ANY SUCH INFORMATION OR ADVICE.
