You agree that these Terms, including all other policies and agreements incorporated herein, apply to all of your activities on our Websites, Mobile Apps, our APIs, as it relates to our curated health information platform and any other related services we provide (collectively referred to through these Terms as the “Services”). If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms do not use or access any of the Services in any manner or for any purpose.
If you live in the United States or Canada, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with Gali Health through binding arbitration (with very limited exceptions, not in court), and you waive certain rights to participate in class actions, as detailed in the Dispute Resolution for US and Canadian Residents section of these Terms.
If you live outside of the United States or Canada, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with Gali Health in accordance with the Dispute Resolution for non-US and non-Canadian Residents section of these Terms.
Limitation of Services; No Medical Advice.
Gali Health’s Services are designed to attempt to provide its users with curated information related to health topics for each individual user based on the user’s specific interests and characteristics meant solely to help educate each user. The Services are not meant to provide specific medical advice, recommendations or care in any manner. In fact, Gali Health and its employees and agents are not practicing medicine of any kind. Rather, the Services are solely limited to providing users content about healthcare related topics. As such, all content, including auto-response messages, images, videos, information and other material of any kind made available through the Services, whether by Gali Health, other users of the Services, or any other third-parties (collectively, the “Service Content”) are for informational purposes only. The views and opinions of authors of curated information do not necessarily state or reflect those of Gali Health or its affiliates. Service Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, treatment, or diagnosis. If you think you may have a medical emergency of any kind, call your doctor or dial 911 immediately. Do not rely on the information obtained through use of the Services as a substitute of any kind from medical advice provided by your physician or other qualified health provider. In fact, always seek the advice of your doctor or other qualified health care provider concerning your medical condition(s). If you choose to rely on information provided to you via use of the Services, you do so solely at your own risk.
a. In order to access and use most of the Services available to the public, you will need to register and create an account (“Account”) and, via registration, you will be required to identify yourself by providing information required through the registration process, including providing a valid email address and/or phone number capable of receiving SMS text messages, and you will be required to select a password.

Gali Health reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account, if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter is or becomes inaccurate, false or misleading.
b. You have complete responsibility for your Account and everything that happens on your Account, including for any harm or damage caused by someone using your Account without your permission. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and you agree to notify us if your password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third-party, or otherwise may have been compromised.
c. Your Account is personal to you and may not be transferred or assigned to any other person or entity. In the event of your death, your Account will be closed and terminated.

b. All of Your Content remains yours and Gali Health does not claim any ownership rights in any of Your Content. Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit Your Content. You represent and warrant that you or your licensors own all right, title and interest in and to Your Content and that you have all rights in Your Content necessary and sufficient to transmit to, upload to, transfer to, process on, store in, or cause to interface with, your Account or the Services, and to grant the rights contemplated by these Terms to us. You are solely responsible for all of Your Content, including but not limited to the development, transmission, operation, maintenance, storage, claims, and use of Your Content.
c. By using our Services, you hereby grant Gali Health a limited, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual (except as stated in sub-part (d) below) license to access, collect, use, re-use, share, store, monitor, copy, process, analyze, transmit, edit, summarize, and display Your Content (i) in order to provide the Services (as presently contemplated and as modified in the future) to you specifically and to all users generally (ii) solely in an anonymized manner (except in the case of Your Public Content which need not be anonymized), to assist us in (1) improving our Services or (2) developing new products or services, (iii) to monitor compliance with these Terms by you, or (iv) for any other legitimate business purpose (the “Rights Granted”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that Your Public Content may be used by Gali Health and any other users of the Services in any manner (e.g., a user of the Service may freely share any of Your Public Content with others either via the Service or otherwise). You acknowledge that all of Your Public Content is public and not private communications, and therefore that Your Public Content may be read by others without your knowledge.
Gali Health and its licensors reserve sole and exclusive ownership of the Services, the Websites, the Mobile Apps, and all copyrights, patents, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights therein other than Your Content or content that would meet the definition of Your Content of other users of the Services (the “Gali Health Materials”).

If you provide Gali Health with any suggestions, comments, or other feedback regarding the Services (“Feedback”), you acknowledge that such Feedback will become the exclusive property of Gali Health, and Gali Health may use (or not use) any such Feedback in any manner and for any purpose, without compensation to you and without implying or creating any interest on your part in any of Gali Health’s products or services that may be based on such Feedback.

Gali Points and Third Party Interactions
a. As a user of our Services, you may be provided point awards by us in circumstances and amounts determined from time to time by us (each a “Gali Point”). Gali Points have no cash value of any kind. Rather, they are intended to be used to provide you with discounts on goods or services of third parties made available through your use of the Services. Gali Points are akin to an airline mileage program or credit card point program. Gali Points within your account can be solely redeemed for discounts on goods and services of others . Gali Points are not “virtual currency”, “crypto-currency”, or any other type of currency or instrument. Depending on your jurisdiction, you may be taxed on your receipt of Gali Points or discounts on goods or services related to the redemption of such Gali Points depending on the tax laws of federal, state, and local jurisdictions. You will be solely responsible for any and all tax liability arising out of the consideration received in connection with any of the foregoing.
b. You are solely responsible for your interaction with other users of the Services and/or the providers of any goods or services you obtain in exchange for your Gali Points (each a “Third Party Vendor”). While we reserve the right to monitor disputes between you and other users or Third Party Vendors, we have no obligation to do so. You agree not to hold us responsible for the actions or inactions of any such Third Party Vendors or users. You acknowledge that Gali Health is solely a facilitator and promoter of information provided to you by its users and Third Party Providers. We are not involved in the actual development of the content submitted by users or other third parties(collectively “Other User Content”) and have detrimentally relied on the representations made by you, other users, and other third parties in order to provide the Services to the public. We have no control over and do not guarantee (a) the truth or accuracy of any Other User Content, (b) the quality of the goods or services provided by any Third Party Provider, or (c) the manner in which any Third Party Provider completes a transaction with you at all or to your satisfaction. The most we can do is reinstate any Gali Points debited from your account related to the purchase of a good or service from a Third Party Provider. We reserve the right to do so in our sole discretion. If you believe you should have Gali Points reinstated with respect to a transaction with a Third Party Provider, believe any Other User Content should be removed from our Website or any of our Mobile Apps, or are otherwise being harassed in any manner, contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
c. If you have a dispute with one or more users of the Services or any third party, including any Third Party Provider, you release Gali Health (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says:
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.

Dispute Resolution for US and Canadian Residents
If there is a dispute, our user support team is happy to try to resolve the issue. If that does not work and you live in the United States or Canada, your options are to go to small claims court or bring a claim in binding arbitration; you may not bring that claim in another court or participate in a non-individual class action claim against Gali Health. This Dispute Resolution section applies only if you live in the United States or Canada. If you live outside the United States of Canada, Dispute Resolution for non-US and non-Canadian Residents of these Terms shall apply to you.
a. Small Claims.
Either of us can bring a claim in small claims court in (a) San Francisco, California, (b) the county where you live, or (c) another place we both agree on, as long as it qualifies to be brought in that court.
If any dispute cannot be resolved amicably and informally and a small claims action is not initiated, Gali Health and you agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms (or our other legal terms) through final and binding arbitration, regardless of the type of claim or legal theory. If one of us brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated and the other party refuses to arbitrate it, the other party can ask a court to force us both to go to arbitration (compel arbitration). Either of us can also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing. With respect to any arbitration proceeding the following process shall be followed:
I. Any disputes involving a claim or claims of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, in the aggregate must be resolved through binding, non-appearance-based arbitration (i.e., arbitration conducted online, through written filings, and/or via teleconference) (each a “Sub 10K Arbitration”).
II. Any Sub 10K Arbitration shall be conducted through the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer-Related Disputes.
III. The following rules will apply to any Sub 10K Arbitration: (a) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions (at the choice of the party seeking relief); (b) the arbitration must not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses (unless we and you agree otherwise); and (c) any judgment on the arbitrator’s rendered award may be entered in any court with competent jurisdiction.
IV. Disputes that involve a claim (or claims) of more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) in the aggregate must be resolved per the AAA’s rules about whether the arbitration hearing has to be in-person.
V. Any judgment rendered by the arbitrator in any arbitration proceeding may be entered in any court having jurisdiction and the arbitrator’s decision shall be final and legally binding.
c. No Class Actions.
Gali Health and you each agree that each of us can only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) an arbitrator can’t combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and can’t be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this “No class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this entire Dispute Resolution for US and Canadian Residents section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply and the Dispute Resolution for non-US and non-Canadian Residents of these Terms shall apply instead to you with respect to dispute resolution as if you were not a resident of the United States or Canada.
d. Changes to this Section.
Notwithstanding the Right to Modify Terms section of these Terms, if Gali Health changes this Dispute Resolution for US and Canadian Residents section after the date you last indicated acceptance to these Terms, you may reject any such change by providing Gali Health written notice of such rejection by mail or hand delivery to: Gali Health, Inc. Attn: Legal, [address], or by email from the email address associated with your Account to: email@example.com, within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated by the “last updated on” language above. To be effective, the notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this Dispute Resolution for US and Canadian Residents section. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and Gali Health in accordance with the provisions of this Dispute Resolution for US and Canadian Residents section as of the date you last indicated acceptance to these Terms.
Dispute Resolution for non-US and non-Canadian Residents
If there is a dispute, our user support team is happy to try to resolve the issue. If that does not work and you live outside of the United States or Canada, you and Gali Health that the federal and state courts within the County of San Francisco in the State of California shall have exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any dispute arising out of these Terms. Each party hereto expressly consents to the personal jurisdiction of, and venue in, such courts.
Right to Modify Terms
Gali Health reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these Terms at any time to clarify our practices, reflect new or different practices, comport with changes in applicable law(s) or for any other reason. If we make changes to these Terms, we will notify you using prominent means such as by email notice sent to the email address specified in your Account, posting a notice through our Services, and/or requiring you to agree to any such changes upon your attempt to continue to use the Services. Any modifications will become effective on the day they are posted unless stated otherwise. Your continued use or access of the Services in any manner after any such changes occur shall constitute your acceptance of the new terms. Any revised Terms shall supersede all previous Terms. Should you have any questions regarding the specific provisions of these Terms (as amended), please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
a. Governing Law.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without reference to its choice or conflict of law principles.
Neither Gali Health nor you may assign these Terms without the other party’s prior written consent and any attempt to do so will be void, except that Gali Health may assign these Terms, without your consent, to a successor or acquirer, as the case may be, in connection with acquisition of Gali Health by operation of law or via the sale of all or substantially all of Gali Health’s assets or all or substantially all of the assets that allow for provision of the Services. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and benefit the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
c. No Election of Remedies.
Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will not be deemed an election of remedies and will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or available at law or in equity or otherwise.
If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect, and the provision affected will be construed so as to be enforceable to the maximum extent permissible by law.
e. Legal Actions and Notices.
No action, regardless of form, arising out of or relating to these Terms may be brought by either party more than one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued. Any notice or other communication to be given hereunder will be in writing and given by registered or certified mail return receipt requested, or email (by us to the email associated with your Account or by you to email@example.com).
You and Gali Health agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, contractor, or agency relationship exists between us.
The failure by either you or Gali Health to enforce any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of each applicable party.
h. Entire Agreement.
This Agreement, inclusive of the Privacy and Security Policy which has been incorporated herein, constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior understandings and agreements, whether written or oral, with respect to its subject matter.
i. No Liability for Failure to Provide Services.
