1. Scope of this Agreement; Not Medical or Healthcare Services.
1.1. Sugarmate Products are not medical or healthcare services.
You understand that Sugarmate is not a healthcare professional and does not provide medical, health or other professional services or advice, nor do we verify the accuracy of User Data (as such term is defined in Section 4.2 below). Sugarmate Products are not replacements for proper medical care, and you agree that the User, as applicable, is solely responsible for obtaining proper treatment for his or her conditions. You may provide the information and reports received from Sugarmate Products to the User's healthcare providers at your own responsibility, understanding that the Sugarmate Products are provided without warranty except as required by law or as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement.
The Sugarmate Products do not provide any medical advice or treatment by Sugarmate. Always consult a physician or other qualified health care provider for personal medical attention and advice, if you have any questions about a medical condition or before taking any drug, changing your diet or commencing or discontinuing any course of treatment. Do not use the Sugarmate Products as a substitute for consulting with your physician or other healthcare provider, and do not ignore or delay obtaining professional medical advice because of information or content accessed through Sugarmate Products. If you think you have a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.
The Sugarmate Products are not intended to be and do not constitute a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment and are offered for informational purposes only. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions regarding your medical condition or the use (or frequency) of any medication or medical device. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of any information received in connection with the Sugarmate Products.
To the extent you receive medical care in conjunction with or consequent to any Sugarmate Product, your treating medical professional is responsible for obtaining your informed consent to any medical diagnosis or treatment, including without limitation, your consent to use telemedicine in the course of your treatment to the extent such consent is required by applicable law. This diagnosis or treatment is separate from and unrelated to any Sugarmate Product. Sugarmate does not represent or warrant that any Sugarmate Products or any particular drug or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you. Sugarmate is not responsible or liable for any advice, course of treatment or diagnosis that you may obtain in connection with or as a result of using any Sugarmate Products.
Each Sugarmate Product is for non-emergency purposes only. Do not attempt to access emergency care through the Website, the Sugarmate Apps, or any other Sugarmate Product. If at any time you are concerned about your care or treatment, or if you think you have a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest open emergency room. None of the Sugarmate Products are intended to support or carry emergency or time-critical calls or communications to any type of hospital, law enforcement agency, medical care unit, or any other kind of emergency or time-critical service.

14. Your Use of “App Stores”
The following terms apply to any Program Element accessed through or downloaded from any “App Store” or distribution platform (such as the Apple App Store or Google Play) where the Program Element may now or in the future be made available (each an “App Provider”). You acknowledge and agree that:
· These terms are concluded between you and Sugarmate, and not with the App Provider, and Sugarmate (not the App Provider), is solely responsible for the Program Element.
· The App Provider has no obligation to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to any Program Element.
· In the event of any failure of a Program Element to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify the App Provider, and the App Provider will refund the purchase price for the Program Element to you if applicable and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the App Provider will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Program Element. Any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of Sugarmate.
· The App Provider is not responsible for addressing any claims you have or any claims of any third-party relating to the Program Element or your possession and use of the Program Element, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the Program Element fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
· In the event of any third-party claim that the Program Element or your possession and use of that Element infringes on that third party’s intellectual property rights, Sugarmate will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by this Agreement.
· The App Provider, and its subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement as related to your license to the Program Element, and that, upon your acceptance of the Terms, the App Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement as related to your license of the Program Element against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, our right to enter into, rescind or terminate any variation, waiver or settlement under this Agreement is not subject to the consent of any third party.
· You must also comply with all applicable third-party terms of service when using the Program Element.
15. Relationship; No Third Party Beneficiaries.
Our relationship with you is as an independent contractor, and nothing in this Agreement creates an agency or partnership. Except for Sugarmate's Licensors, there are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement.
16. Complete Agreement.
17. Copyright Infringement Claims.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Data Services infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to Sugarmate a written notice by mail or by e-mail requesting that Sugarmate remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly submitted to us a notice of copyright infringement involving content that you made available through any Data Service, the DMCA permits you to send to Sugarmate a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Sugarmate's DMCA agent as follows: By mail to Sugarmate LLC, 11075 Roselle Street, San Diego, CA 92121, or by e-mail to support[at]sugarmate.io.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Sugarmate has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, Data Service users who are deemed by Sugarmate to be repeat infringers. Sugarmate may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Data Service and/or terminate the accounts of any Data Service users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not such users are deemed to be repeat infringers.
Sugarmate grants you a limited, revocable, non-transferable, and nonexclusive license to access and make personal use of the Website and the Program in accordance with this Agreement and the applicable indications, instructions for use and end user license agreement (“Program EULA”) of the Program, but not to download (other than page caching) or modify them, or any portion of them, except with express written consent of Sugarmate. This license does NOT include any resale or commercial use of the Website, the Program or its Program Elements; any collection and use of any product listings, descriptions; any derivative use of the Website, the Program or its Program Elements; any downloading or copying of account information for the benefit of another merchant; or any use of data mining, robots, spiders or similar data gathering and extraction tools. Neither the Website, the Program nor its Program Elements may be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent of Sugarmate.

You may not use meta tags or any other hidden text using Sugarmate’s name or trademarks without the express written consent of Sugarmate. Any unauthorized use will immediately terminate the permission or license granted by Sugarmate.
You are also granted a limited, revocable, non-transferable, and nonexclusive right to create a hyperlink to the home page of Sugarmate so long as the link does not portray Sugarmate or its products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive manner as determined by Sugarmate in its sole discretion. You may not use any Sugarmate logo or other proprietary graphic or trademark as part of the link without express written permission of Sugarmate. You may not make any other part of the Website, other than the home page of the Website, available as part of another service by “deep linking,” or otherwise, without prior written permission from Sugarmate.
