WEBSITE TERMS OF SERVICE
1.Your Relationship with EnhanceMD
The EnhanceMD Website is currently only available to individuals who are in states in which we make available the Services, are at least eighteen (18) years of age or older and who have accepted these Terms. The Services are subject to state regulations and may change from time to time due to changes in applicable regulatory requirements.
The Website makes the Services available to individuals who register as users (“You,” “your” or “Users”). Our Website provides access to (1) prescription fulfillment services offered by Beauty Empower, Rx and other licensed pharmacies (the “Pharmacies”), (2) laboratory services from certain laboratories (the “Labs”) and (3) one or more of the following medial groups who provide healthcare services via telehealth through the Website (the “Medical Groups”): Empower Medical Corporation of California, Empower Medical Corporation of Virginia. These medical groups employ or contract with physicians, nurse practitioners and other United States licensed healthcare providers who offer certain healthcare services through the Website (“Providers”). By accepting these Terms of Service, you acknowledge and agree that any services you receive from the Labs, Pharmacies, Medical Groups or Providers through the Website are also subject to these Terms, and that the Labs, Pharmacies, Medical Groups and Providers are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms.
EnhanceMD does not control or interfere with the practice of medicine by the Medical Groups or any Providers, each of whom is solely responsible for directing the medical care and treatment they provide to you. Medical Groups are independently owned and operated by licensed physicians. EnhanceMD provides administrative and management services to the Medical Groups. EnhanceMD licenses the “Enhance.MD” brand name to Medical Groups that use EnhanceMD’s business support services.
By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge and agree that EnhanceMD is not a healthcare provider and that by using the Website, you are not entering into a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with EnhanceMD. By using the Website, you may, however, choose to enter into a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with the Medical Group and/or one or more Providers. Further, we do not control or interfere with any professional service provided by the Labs and Pharmacies, each of which is solely responsible for their provision of professional services that you might access through the Website. Services and practices may vary across clinicians, and you should contact the clinicians at the respective Medical Group where you received Services directly for all questions concerning your medical care.
By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge and agree that the Medical Group and/or Providers may send you messages, reports, and emails through the Website regarding your diagnosis and/or treatment. You understand and agree that EnhanceMD is not responsible for the security or privacy of communications services you use to receive such messages, reports, and emails sent through the Website. You further understand and agree that it is your sole responsibility as a patient to monitor, review and respond to these messages, reports, and emails because they may contain important information about your health and that neither EnhanceMD nor the Medical Group nor any Provider will be responsible in any way and you will not hold EnhanceMD, the Medical Group or any Provider liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from your failure to read or respond to these messages or for your failure to follow any treatment recommendations or instructions from the Medical Group or your Provider(s).
In some circumstances, the Website may not be the most appropriate way for you to provide information to, communicate with or seek medical and/or mental health care and treatment from a Provider. For example, certain medical conditions may require an in-person procedure or a healthcare provider other than your Provider, or your Provider may determine that your diagnosis and/or treatment requires an in-person office visit or are otherwise not appropriately addressed through use of the Services. In such instance, you may receive notification that you will be unable to use the Services for the issue you submitted. To the extent possible, the Provider may give you additional information regarding next steps you may take on your own.
2. Your Financial Responsibility
Neither EnhanceMD nor the Medical Groups are enrolled with, nor are participating providers with, any federal or state healthcare programs (i.e., Medicare, Medicaid) for the provision of healthcare or supplies and, as such, neither you nor Enhance nor the Medical Groups may receive payment from such programs for the services or products provided to you by EnhanceMD or the Medical Groups or the Labs, Pharmacies, or Providers even if they are enrolled in federal or state healthcare programs if Services are procured through the Website.
By using the Website, you acknowledge and agree that (1) you are explicitly choosing to obtain products and services on a cash basis outside of any federal or state healthcare program and you have sole financial responsibility for all services or products provided to you by or through the Website, and (2) neither you nor EnhanceMD, the Labs, the Pharmacies, the Medical Groups or the Providers will submit a claim for reimbursement to any federal or state healthcare program for the costs of the services and products provided to you through the Website.

22. External Services.
The Website may enable access to EnhanceMD third-party services and websites, including social media sites (collectively and individually, “External Services“). You agree to use the External Services at your sole risk. EnhanceMD is not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy of any third-party External Services, and shall not be liable for any such third-party External Services. Data displayed by the Website or External Service, including but not limited to financial, medical and location information, is for general informational purposes only and is not guaranteed by EnhanceMD or its agents. You will not use the External Services in any manner that is inconsistent with these Terms or that infringes the intellectual property rights of EnhanceMD or any third-party. You agree not to use the External Services to harass, abuse, stalk, threaten or defame any person or entity, and that EnhanceMD is not responsible for any such use. External Services may not be available in all languages or in your Home Country, and may not be appropriate or available for use in any particular location. To the extent you choose to use such External Services, you are solely responsible for compliance with any applicable laws. EnhanceMD reserves the right to change, suspend, remove, disable or impose access restrictions or limits on any External Services at any time without notice or liability to you.
23. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement.
We will try work in good faith to resolve any issue you have with the Website, including products and services ordered or purchased through the Website, if you bring that issue to the attention of our customer service department. However, we realize that there may be rare cases where we may not be able to resolve an issue to a customer’s satisfaction.
You and EnhanceMD agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms of Service or your use of the Website, including products and services ordered or purchased through the Website, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than bringing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in court, however, we agree to cooperate with each other to agree to reasonable discovery in light of the issues involved and amount of the claim. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, but in so doing, the arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter had been brought in court, including without limitation, the law on punitive damages as applied by the United States Supreme Court. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Service, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and EnhanceMD are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service and any other contractual relationship between you and EnhanceMD.
If you desire to assert a claim against EnhanceMD, and you therefore elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to EnhanceMD, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim (“Notice“). The Notice to EnhanceMD should be addressed to: EnhanceMD, 13280 Evening Creek Drive South, Suite 225, San Diego, CA 92128 (“Notice Address“). If EnhanceMD desires to assert a claim against you and therefore elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. A Notice, whether sent by you or by EnhanceMD, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand“). If EnhanceMD and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or EnhanceMD may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by EnhanceMD or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) at www.adr.org. To commence arbitration with the AAA, the AAA will require you to pay a filing fee. Please see the AAA website for more information on the filing fees applicable to you. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules“) of the AAA, as modified by these Terms of Service, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by requesting them from us by writing to us at the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms of Service. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of these Terms of Service, including this arbitration agreement. Unless EnhanceMD and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. (If you reside outside of the United States, any arbitration hearings will take place in your country of residence at a location reasonably convenient to you, but will remain subject to the AAA Rules including the AAA rules regarding the selection of an arbitrator). If your claim is for US $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of EnhanceMD’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if EnhanceMD did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then EnhanceMD will pay you the amount of the award or US $1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Each party shall pay for its own costs and attorneys’ fees, if any. However, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for payment or recovery attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.
YOU AND ENHANCEMD AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and EnhanceMD agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
If this agreement to Arbitrate provision is found to be unenforceable, then (a) the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, but the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect; and (b) exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in state or federal courts located in and for San Diego, California.

EnhanceMD reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to all or part of this Website, with or without cause, and with or without notice.
