If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor. If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
Any obligation to indemnify an indemnitee for any loss, liability, or expense arising from any negligent, grossly negligent, reckless, willful, fraudulent, or intentional conduct committed by an indemnitee may not be enforceable against any visitor of the services to the extent applicable law so requires, such as from certain jurisdictions (such as from new jersey).
8. Disclaimer of warranties
Your use of the service is at your sole risk. The service is provided on an as-is and as-available basis. Brightelife expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express, implied, or statutory, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.

In no event will Brightelife’s total liability to you for all damages, losses, or causes of action exceed the amount you have paid Brightelife in the last six (6) months, or, if greater, one hundred dollars ($100).
Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer or exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations set forth above may not apply to you or be enforceable with respect to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the service or with these terms of service, your sole and exclusive remedy are to discontinue the use of the service.
If you are a user from new jersey, the foregoing sections titled indemnification and release, disclaimer of warranties, and limitation of liability are intended to be only as broad as is permitted under the laws of the state of new jersey. If any portion of these sections is held to be invalid under the laws of the state of new jersey, the invalidity of such portion shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of the applicable sections.
10. Dispute resolution by binding arbitration
*Please read this section carefully as it affects your rights.
Agreement to arbitrate: This dispute resolution by binding arbitration section is referred to in these Terms of Service as the Arbitration Agreement (Arbitration Agreement). You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Brightelife, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms of Service, you and Brightelife are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
Prohibition of class and representative actions and non-individualized relief: you and Brightelife agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and Brightelife agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s), except that you may pursue a claim for, and the arbitrator may award public injunctive relief under applicable law to the extent required for the enforceability of this provision.
Pre-arbitration dispute resolution: Brightelife is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at email@example.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (Notice). The Notice to Brightelife should be sent to 13314 Berwick Ln, Carmel, IN 46032 (Notice Address). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Brightelife and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Brightelife may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Brightelife, or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Brightelife is entitled.
Arbitration procedures: Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (AAA) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the AAA Rules), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless Brightelife and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, Brightelife agrees 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 $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.
Costs of Arbitration: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the Arbitration Fees) will be governed by the AAA Rules unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, Brightelife will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of the relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Brightelife will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Brightelife will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
Confidentiality: All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
Severability: If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above-titled Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.
Future changes to the arbitration agreement: Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, Brightelife agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending Brightelife written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
You agree that Brightelife, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if Brightelife believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service.

Some of our Services may include a telehealth online solution that allows participating medical professionals and health care staff (Providers) to communicate with their clients, customers, and/or patients (collectively, Patients) to provide health care-related services online and perform virtual house calls via an Internet connection. We are not responsible for internet connectivity or lack thereof or problems or issues related to the use thereof. We are not a medical service provider, health insurance company, nor licensed to sell health insurance. The Services are not intended for use by Providers and/or Patients in connection with active patient monitoring so as to allow immediate clinical action or continuous monitoring.
The Providers who deliver services through our Service are independent professionals practicing within a group of independently owned professional practices. We do not practice medicine or any other licensed profession and do not interfere with the practice of medicine or any other licensed profession by Providers, each of whom is responsible for his, her or their services and compliance with the requirements applicable to his/her/their profession and license.
Information provided by Providers and/or Patients is merely transmitted via the Services, not verified, or endorsed by us, and is provided on an as-is basis and we disclaim all warranties, either express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. We shall in no event be liable to you or to anyone for any decision made or action taken by any party (including, without limitation, any Service user) in reliance on information about Providers or Patients on the Service.
You hereby certify that you are not a Medicare or Medicaid beneficiary. If you provide false or deceptive information to us, including without limitation regarding your Medicare or Medicaid enrollment status, we reserve the right to terminate all current or future use of the Services by you.
A health care provider’s ability to use our services is not an endorsement or recommendation of that health care provider by us. Neither we nor any third parties who promote the Services or provide you with a link to the Services shall be liable for any professional advice you obtain from a Provider via the Services. The medical advice provided by your Provider is not under our control, nor is it provided to you by us. If you are a Patient, you accept responsibility for yourself in the use of the Services. You acknowledge that your relationship for health care services is with your health care provider, and your obtaining services from the Provider is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risk associated therewith, to the extent permitted by law. By using the Service, you agree to not hold us liable in any way for any malpractice or substandard treatment the Provider may render.
We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to confirm certain credentials of Providers using our Services, such as validating that they are in good standing with their respective licensure board(s). The Providers utilizing or featured on the Service are independent practitioners practicing on their own behalf, not our employees. Any opinions, advice, or information expressed by a health care facility, professional or specialist or other Provider using or featured on the Service are of the facility, professional, specialist or other Provider alone. They do not reflect our opinions.
We do not recommend or endorse any specific tests, providers, products, procedures, medications, devices, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on the Service or by a Provider or licensee of ours. We do not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who provide services via the Service. You will be provided with a list of available providers located in the U. S. based solely on the information you provide to us. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider. The inclusion of Providers on the Service or in any professional directory located on the Service does not imply the recommendation or endorsement of such Provider nor is such information intended as a tool for verifying the credentials, qualifications, or abilities of any Provider contained therein.
To the extent medical advice is provided to you by a Provider through the Services, such medical advice is based on your personal health data as provided by you to the Provider and the local standards of care for your presenting symptoms, based on the information you provide.
Patients may be required to provide certain Personal Information, including name, date of birth, gender, address, email, mobile, and work phone, as well as a user id and password. Patients may also provide certain optional information, including middle name or initial, home phone and other contact info, pharmacy name and contact details, picture, and communications preferences. In addition, the Patient can communicate other health-related information to the Provider during a video consultation via the Services. Patient medication history is a list of prescriptions that healthcare providers have prescribed for you. A variety of sources, including pharmacies and health insurers, contribute to the collection of this history. By using the Services, you give your permission to allow your particular Provider to obtain your medication history, specifically for use in providing care. Optional information is not required to register for an account but may be helpful to us in providing you with a more customized experience when using the Site or its Services.
The use of the Service by any entity or individual to verify the credentials of Providers is prohibited.

We believe that the likelihood of these risks materializing is very low.

Security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.
