(a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, UMA grants User a limited, terminable, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive right to access and use the Services on a personal computer or mobile device that User owns or controls: (a) for the sole purpose of facilitating the scheduling of health care appointments and payment of related invoices; and (b) as permitted by the applicable terms of service of the mobile app store from where User downloaded any mobile application necessary to access the Services and the specific usage rules set forth therein. UMA shall have no obligation to support User’s use of the Services in the event that: (i) User modifies the Service (or any component thereof) without UMA’s prior written consent; (ii) any error is caused in whole or in part by persons other than UMA, including without limitation, User’s failure to properly enter or transmit data; or (iii) any error is caused in whole or in part by User’s use of the Service in association with operating environments and platforms other than those specified by UMA.
(b) To the extent that the Service incorporates any third-party software licensed by UMA, then, in addition to the terms set forth herein, User must comply with any additional terms, restrictions, or limitations applicable to such third-party software. Additionally, User acknowledges that UMA shall have the right to subcontract performance of its hosting services and credit card and payment processing services, in which event the service levels provided by any third-party hosting provider (including, without limitation, any service levels that are stricter than the service levels offered by User) will be incorporated herein by reference.
(c) User shall procure, install and maintain all equipment, Internet connections and other hardware (other than the hardware constituting the support center maintained at UMA’s facilities) necessary for User to connect to and access the Service. UMA is not responsible for equipment defects, lack of service, or other issues arising from third party services or equipment. User is responsible for any applicable charges and fees associated with any data plan fees or other subscription charges or fees of any kind whatsoever that may be required by User’s carrier to access the Service.
3. User IDs. User will comply with all UMA rules and regulations and security restrictions in connection with use of the Service. Each User will be assigned a unique User identification name and password for access to and use of the Service (“User ID”). User shall be solely responsible for ensuring the security and confidentiality of all User IDs.

If User suggests any new features, functionality or performance for the Service that UMA subsequently incorporates into the Service (or any other software or service), User hereby acknowledges that (i) UMA shall own, and has all rights to use, such suggestions and the Service (or any other service) incorporating such new features, functionality, or performance shall be the sole and exclusive property of UMA; and (ii) all such suggestions shall be free from any confidentiality restrictions that might otherwise be imposed upon UMA. User shall not sell, lease, or otherwise transfer or distribute the Service or its associated documentation, in whole or in part, without prior authorization in writing from UMA. In the event of any breach of this paragraph, User agrees that UMA will suffer irreparable harm and shall therefore be entitled to obtain injunctive relief against User.
5. User Information & Privacy; Data Retention and Collection. (a) User grants to UMA a non-exclusive license to copy, use and display any and all personally identifiable data, information or communications sent, or entered by Users while accessing the Service (“User Information”) solely to the extent necessary for UMA to provide the Services, including, without limitation, communicating with Users, responding to requests that User makes, to improve the Services and to better tailor the features, performance and support of the Services, and to offer User’s additional information, opportunities, and functionality. User acknowledges that UMA exercises no control whatsoever over the content of the User Information and it is the sole responsibility of User, at its own expense, to provide the information, and to ensure that the information Users transmit or receive complies with all applicable laws and regulations now in place or enacted in the future. UMA is under no obligation, however, to review User Information for accuracy, potential liability or for any other reason.
(b) User agrees that UMA’s obligation to keep or maintain any User Information obtained in the course of performance of the Service shall not extend beyond the expiration of thirty (30) days following the User’s ceasing use of the Service.

(c) UMA shall have the right to utilize data capture, syndication and analysis tools, and other similar tools, to extract, compile, synthesize, and analyze any non-personally identifiable data or information (including, without limitation, User Information) resulting from User’s access and use of the Service (“Blind Data”). To the extent that any Blind Data is collected by UMA, such Blind Data shall be solely owned by UMA and may be used by UMA for any lawful business purpose without a duty of accounting to User, including, without limitation, providing User with the opportunity for User to benchmark itself against its peers, provided that the Blind Data is used only in an aggregated form, without specifically identifying the source of the Blind Data. Without assuming any obligations or liabilities of User, UMA agrees use commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the applicable U.S. laws and regulations respecting the dissemination and use such Blind Data.

(e) Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, UMA does not trade, rent, or share User’s “Personal Information” (ie. information about a User that is personally identifiable to the User, such as name, address, email address, phone number, healthcare and credit card and payment information) with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so, provided, however, that UMA may provide your Personal Information to third party service providers who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the features of the Services and to help us communicate with you. However, these service providers do not have any independent right to share this information (except pursuant to a legal requirement such as a subpoena or warrant).
(f) UMA uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard Personal Information in UMA’s possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification, provided, however, User acknowledges and agrees that no website, application or Internet transmission is completely secure.

User’s use of the Services is at User’s own risk.
(g) If UMA or its assets are acquired by a third-party, that third-party will possess the Personal Information collected by UMA and it will assume the rights and obligations regarding User’s Personal Information as described in this Agreement. Additionally, UMA may disclose User’s Personal Information if UMA believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of us, users of the Services or third parties.

UMA does not collect location data in a form that personally identifies Users. User may withdraw this consent at any time by turning off the location-based feature on a mobile device or by not using any location-based features. Turning off or not using these features may impact the functionality of the Service. Location data provided by the Service is for basic navigational purposes only and is not intended to be relied upon in situations where precise location information is needed or where erroneous, inaccurate or incomplete location data may lead to death, personal injury, property or environmental damage. Use of real time route guidance is at the User’s sole risk. Location data may not be accurate. UMA does not guaranty the availability, accuracy, completeness, reliability or timeliness of information or location displayed by the Service.

UMA may take whatever remedial action it determines in its sole discretion is appropriate if User violates these restrictions, including, but not limited to, immediate suspension or cancellation of the Service.
8. Payment Processing. (a) UMA processes payment transactions on behalf of Users, as the agent of the User, through the appropriate bank, credit card or debit card network, as applicable. When a User chooses to use the Service to pay a medical provider the User hereby consents to UMA facilitating and/or processing payments made or received through the Service, including, without limitation, the consent to access, charge or debit a payor’s credit card, debit card, bank account or other payment mechanism. As consideration of User’s use of the Service, User acknowledges and agrees that UMA may retain, as a fee for the Service, a percentage of each payment transaction processed through the Service as set forth in UMA’s fee schedule, which UMA may adjust from time to time including, without limitation, charging additional fees that UMA deems appropriate (in its sole discretion). UMA is hereby authorized to deduct all fees payable to UMA directly from each payment processed by UMA through its Service.
(b) Each User acknowledges and agrees that a payment transaction made through the Service is a transaction between Users and not with UMA. UMA is not a party to any payment transaction for the purchase of medical services and UMA is not a buyer or seller in connection with any payment transaction.
(c) Users may only use the Service to process a payment transaction for a health care related product or service provided by a licensed medical practitioner through a legitimate, bona fide sale of such product or service.

Users may not use the Service to purchase any illegal goods or services or for any other underlying illegal transaction.
(d) All payment transactions processed through the Service are non-refundable to a User by UMA and are non-reversible by a User through the Service. Users may have additional refund or charge-back rights under the agreement a User has with the issuer of the User’s payment instrument (ie its credit or debit card agreement) or applicable state and federal laws. User should review its periodic statement received from the issuer of its payment instrument which will reflect all purchase transactions through the Service.

IN ADDITION, ERRORS MAY BE INTRODUCED INTO INFORMATION OR ORDERS IN THE COURSE OF THEIR TRANSMISSION OVER ELECTRONIC NETWORKS. USER SHALL IMPLEMENT AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR APPROPRIATE REVIEW AND CONFIRMATION PROCEDURES TO VERIFY AND CONFIRM ORDERS OR OTHER TRANSACTIONS IN WHICH USER PARTICIPATES USING UMA'S WEBSITE, INFORMATION, SERVICES, DATABASES, SYSTEMS OR OTHER MATERIAL.
