Terms & Conditions of Use

We hope you enjoy using Qvidity. It is important that you read and understand the following Terms and Conditions before we answer your questions:
1. This is a Legal Agreement.
This Agreement tells you the Terms and Conditions under which you agree to view the materialson the Qvidity Website and exchange communications with Qvidity third-party professionals. This Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal agreement between you and Qvidity, LLC (“Qvidity,” “we,” or “us”) regarding your contact with, access to, and use of Qvidity.com (“Qvidity.com” or “the Website”) and information provided by Qvidity. By using this Website, you agree to be bound by this Agreement. You also agree that you have been provided with a Notice of Privacy Practices from your provider and that you agree to the terms stated therein. You acknowledge that you are 18 years of age or older. A parent or guardian must agree to these Terms and Conditions personally and on behalf of any individual using this website who is under 18 years of age.
2. We are not your doctor and we do not provide medical advice or treatment.
We are not a medical provider. Qvidity is a software platform which you and your provider can utilize if it is appropriate to assist with your medical care. Please note that we are not in the business of providing any medical care, diagnosis, treatment or advice, and you will have to either seek that from your physician through telemedicine or schedule an in-person consultation with a doctor, hospital, or other qualified healthcare provider. You should make any medical decision only after consulting with a physician or other qualified healthcare provider licensed to provide medical diagnosis, treatment, care, or advice in your jurisdiction. We are not such a provider. We are not “your doctor.” When we say, “your doctor,” we mean a physician that provides you with medical diagnosis, treatment, care, or advice in your jurisdiction. Qvidity is a software program that can be a tool in your health care, but it does not provide any health care to you. You should always seek medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or care from your doctor or another licensed physician or other properly qualified healthcare provider in your jurisdiction or region apart from and in addition to any information provided on Qvidity.com. You must never disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking such advice from a qualified physician or other local healthcare provider because of information provided by Qvidity.com. Always consult a physician or other qualified healthcare provider before beginning a new course of treatment, prescription, diet, or fitness program.
