This Section includes an arbitration agreement and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a Class Action (as defined below) or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. You may opt out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt out procedure described below.
Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Rappore, you will first contact Rappore and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.
Arbitration Agreement. After the informal dispute resolution process, any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of Rappore’s services and/or products, including the Services, or relating in any way to the communications between you and Rappore or any other user of the Services, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and Rappore. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by Rappore for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Services that is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms or (b) bar you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolve by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Rappore are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a Class Action.
If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim. The arbitration will be administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (or its successor, “JAMS”) under its rules.
The number of arbitrators will be one. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. New York law will apply. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS rules. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Rappore to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section XII to be enforceable, then Rappore will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration, or to decline to do so and have the matter resolved through the courts.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence will not apply to the “Class Action Waiver” section below.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Rappore and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email within thirty (30) days of the date you first access or use the Services.
Class Action Waiver
Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
If this Class Action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the arbitration agreement, if otherwise effective, will be null and void. 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 for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Rappore each waive any right to a jury trial.
Modifications. We may modify these Terms at any time. Modifications become effective immediately upon your first access to or use of the Services after the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. If we make changes that are material, we may use reasonable efforts to attempt to notify you, including by email or placing a prominent notice on the Website. However, it is your sole responsibility to review the Terms from time to time to view any such changes. Your continued access or use of the Services after the modifications have become effective will be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified Terms. If you do not agree with the modifications to the Terms, then please do not access or use the Services.
Injunctive Relief. You agree that a breach of these Terms will cause irreparable injury to Rappore for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and Rappore shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any remedies it may have hereunder or at law without a bond, other security or proof of damages.

It is expressly understood that in the event either party on any occasion fails to perform any term hereof and the other party does not enforce that term, the failure to enforce on any occasion will not constitute a waiver of any term and will not prevent enforcement on any other occasion.

If you provide Rappore with your payment information, then you authorize, but under no obligation, Rappore to do the following as Rappore deems necessary: (a) share your payment information with Rappore, especially if you purchase any products or services from Rappore on or through the Website or landing pages; (b) share your payment information with the third-party payment processing vendor(s) (see above); and (c) obtain your updated payment information from your payment issuer, the third-party payment processing vendor(s) and/or applicable third-party providers. You agree that you are responsible for all amounts that accrue under your account(s) with Rappore and/or the third-party payment processing vendor(s) and/or other third parties on or through the Website. You also agree to be responsible for all payments, fines, penalties and other liabilities incurred by any such person or entity that arises out of or relates to payments that you authorize or accept on or through the Website and/or landing pages.
Refusal of Products and Services on Fraud. Rappore has the right to refuse its products and services (including, without limitation, the Website, the Apps, landing pages, and any products and services offered by Rappore) on suspicion of fraudulent or illegal activity associated with your User Account. This includes, but is not limited to, stolen payment information or falsified medical information resulting in a prescription and subsequent medication by Rappore.
Waiver of Claims and Unauthorized Payments. You agree to waive all claims against Rappore related to any unauthorized payments made on or through your account(s) with Rappore, Rappore’s third-party payment processing vendor(s), or any other third parties and/or any other person or entity, regardless of whether such payments are authorized or unauthorized. However, you may submit a claim of the unauthorized payment to Rappore so that Rappore can conduct a reasonable investigation as it sees fit under the circumstances. If appropriate, Rappore will assist in correcting the alleged unauthorized payment, provided that such claim ("Unauthorized Payment Claim") is received by Rappore within fifteen (15) days of the subject charge or payment.
Warranty of Payment Information. You warrant to Rappore that any provided payment information to Rappore is complete and accurate. You will promptly notify Rappore if your payment information has changed (e.g. a change in address or expiration date), if your payment method has been cancelled, or if you become aware of a breach of security.
Refunds. No refunds. All orders are final. When the package is dispensed by the pharmacy, the order cannot be returned or refunded. Federal law prohibits pharmacies from accepting returns or exchanges on prescriptions, to protect the integrity of the medication and the health of the patient. If you think you’ve received the wrong medication, have received an order in error, or have any other questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Our Cancellation Policy. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request for cancellation by 8am ET 72 hours before your scheduled billing date to cancel your account. Our team will send a cancellation form for you to initiate the request. We respond to all cancellation requests within a few hours, but please note that your account will remain active until your cancellation is confirmed by one of our team members. Once your cancellation has processed, you will continue to have access to your records through Rappore, but your treatment and medication plan will be suspended. Our subscription model is a monthly recurring charge and the billing period begins from the time of registration.
Identity Verification. Your provider or therapist will need to confirm your identity and date of birth before you can be treated via telemedicine. We require an identifiable photo of your face. The photo needs to be taken in real-time and needs to be a clear and accurate representation of you at the point in time of your online visit (i.e. not old photos of you from years ago).
We also require an identifiable government-issued photo ID, which must include:

Patients should be seen regardless of if they are late - this applies to evaluations and follow-up appointments. The clinician should bill for the session. For evaluations, if a follow-up appointment is necessary to complete the evaluation, that should be scheduled and billed as a follow-up. Of course, clinicians should not give patients more than their allotted time if they are late.
