Vitals™ App Terms of Service
Updated: February 24, 2021
What is Included in the Service?
The Service primarily consists of the VITALS™ APP, and/or a web interface to view and update profile information (a “Vitals™ Profile”) and view a vulnerable individual’s activity. The VITALS™ APP allows caregivers to create and manage a Vitals™ Profile that has information about a vulnerable person’s conditions, medications, triggers, de-escalation techniques, video or images they respond to, medical information and caregiver contact information.
A Vitals™ Profile911 is a base subscription service available at a monthly or annual cost, and provides the profile information to more than 4,800 emergency call centers within the U.S. to aid first responders with critical information about. Vulnerable adults when seconds matter.
A Vitals™ Profile user may be assigned to a Bluetooth device (i.e. Vitals™ beacon), which is carried with the vulnerable person via a Vitals™ card, button or phone. Caregivers are able to set up multiple profiles when multiple vulnerable persons are being cared for. The Service consists of one or more paid premium subscription services.

- You are consenting to automatic software updates of both the VITALS APP and any related internet-based services

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW:
- WE WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COSTS OF RECOVERING, OR REPRODUCING ANY DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THESE TERMS; AND

You and Vitals™ each agree that, except as otherwise noted below, any dispute or claim arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms, or to any services provided by Vitals, including, but not limited to, the advertising of or sales practices relating to such services, delivery, installation, and any communication, by whatever means, between you and Vitals, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, rather than in court. Disputes and claims that are within the scope of a small claims court’s authority are exempt from this dispute resolution provision, so long as they are brought individually.
BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU AND VITALS UNDERSTAND THAT EACH IS AGREEING TO WAIVE ITS RIGHT TO SUE OR GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND ITS RIGHTS UNDER THIS CONTRACT. THE RULES IN ARBITRATION ARE DIFFERENT. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY. ALTHOUGH REVIEW IS LIMITED, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN COURT, AND MUST ENFORCE THE SAME LIMITATIONS STATED IN THESE TERMS AS A COURT WOULD.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a demand to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) describing your claim and serve a copy of the demand on our registered agent, Cogency Global Inc., 850 New Burton Road, Suite 201, Dover, County of Kent, Delaware 19904. The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA under its rules. The AAA’s rules and the form for filing an arbitration claim are available at www.adr.org. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. 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 upon location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings of any nature or in any forum will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. This means that you may not purport to act on behalf of a class or any other person. Likewise, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Any claim that all or part of this class action waiver provision is invalid or unenforceable may be determined only by a court and not by an arbitrator. If a court decides that the limitations of this paragraph are deemed invalid or unenforceable, any putative class or representative action must be brought in a court of proper jurisdiction and not in arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial, unless such waiver is unenforceable. This means that any claim would be decided by a judge, not a jury.
THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND APPLICABLE FEDERAL LAW (OR IN THE ABSENCE OF APPLICABLE FEDERAL LAW, THEN THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA), WITHOUT REGARD TO PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICT OF LAWS, WILL GOVERN THESE TERMS AND APPLY TO ANY DISPUTES OR CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND VITALS.
ELECTRONIC DELIVERY OF NOTICES
You agree to receive electronic delivery of the Terms, which shall be deemed to have been delivered to you, (a) when you use the VITALS APP by their availability via a link in the mobile application, and (b) when you purchase a Service Plan by its availability at www.thevitalsapp.com. Further, you also agree that we may send you any notice contemplated under the Plan by email to the email address you have provided to us or to the postal address we have on file for you or via messaging within the VITALS APP.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the services and benefits provided to you under the Service and will prevail over any conflicting, additional, or other terms of any marketing collateral or other document or expression. Employees and agents of Vitals have NO AUTHORITY (apparent, express, implied, or otherwise) to alter or modify the terms and conditions of the Service – either orally or in writing.
