Binding Arbitration. These Terms provide that all disputes between you and Carbon Health Technologies that in any way relate to these Terms or your use of the Site will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. ACCORDINGLY, YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT (INCLUDING IN A CLASS ACTION PROCEEDING) to assert or defend your rights under these Terms. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. Please review the Section below entitled Binding Individual Arbitration for the details regarding your agreement to arbitrate any disputes with Carbon Health.
Changes to Terms
We have the right to change or add to the terms of this Agreement at any time by posting the amended Terms on Carbon Health Technologies websites and/or mobile applications (collectively, the “Site”). In accordance with our Notice of Privacy Practices (“HIPAA Privacy Practices”, “Notice of HIPAA Privacy Practices”), changes to these Terms will not weaken the privacy protections applied to your Protected Health Information without your being notified. Any use of the Services after our publication of any such changes shall constitute your acceptance of the Terms as modified. However, any Dispute that arose before the modification shall be governed by the Terms (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that was in place when the Dispute arose.
**Emergencies** THIS SITE IS NOT AN EMERGENCY-RESPONSE OR EMERGENCY-MONITORING SERVICE AND ANY PERSON WHO IS AWARE OF AN EMERGENCY SITUATION OR BELIEVES THAT A PERSON MAY BE AT RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH OR WHO MAY HARM THEMSELVES OR ANOTHER PERSON SHOULD DIAL “911” OR AN APPROPRIATE EMERGENCY RESPONDER. CARBON HEALTH IS UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO MONITOR OR RESPOND TO COMMUNICATIONS MADE TO THIS SITE.
Services Provided – No Medical Care or Advice by Carbon Health
As an important note, there is no single provider of medical care called “Carbon Health” that provides clinical services online. Rather, Carbon Health Technologies offers an online communication platform for Providers and their patients to connect via the Site through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunications technologies. The Site facilitates communication between patients and Providers.
These Terms do not define how we ensure our adherence to Federal and State laws regarding your Protected Health Information, including the Health Insurance and Portability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”). Our policies regarding the processing of your Protected Health Information (“PHI”) are covered in our Notice of Privacy Practices (“HIPAA Privacy Practices”). Our HIPAA Privacy Practices define how we preserve the privacy of your Protected Health Information, and you should refer to that document, not this one, regarding all processes associated with your healthcare records and other PHI.
Carbon Health Technologies does not provide medical advice or care through the Site or the Services. Carbon Health Technologies contracts with Carbon Health Medical, which are independent, physician-owned medical groups with a network of United States based Providers who provide clinical telehealth services. Carbon Health Technologies provides administrative and business support services to Carbon Health Medical. Carbon Health Medical Providers deliver clinical services via the Carbon Health Technologies platform to their patients. Carbon Health Technologies licenses the “Carbon Health MEDICAL GROUP” brand name to the independently owned and operated medical practices that use its platform and its administrative, business support, and other services. Providers are independently contracted or employed by the Carbon Health Medical. Providers are not contracted or employed by Carbon Health Technologies. The Providers, and not Carbon Health Technologies, are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you. Carbon Health Technologies and Carbon Health Medical do not provide any legal advice or representations in any way regarding any legal issues associated with advice, information, goods, or services offered by a Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations.
Each of the Carbon Health entities, their related sites, locations, and care providers follow the terms of our Notice of Privacy Practices (“HIPAA Privacy Practices”) and you may refer to that document to understand the protections applied to your Protected Healthcare Information.
The Providers are independent of Carbon Health Technologies and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from Carbon Health Technologies. Neither Carbon Health Technologies, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Site or Service, nor any information obtained on the Site. Carbon Health Technologies does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
Carbon Health Technologies does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the Site or Service. You will be provided with available Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Site. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider.
The content of the Site and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by Carbon Health Technologies. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. All information provided by Carbon Health Technologies, or in connection with any communications supported by Carbon Health Technologies, is intended to be for general information purposes only, and is in no way intended to create a provider-patient relationship as defined by state or federal law. While Carbon Health Technologies facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Providers, Carbon Health Technologies does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the Carbon Health Medical Provider you select.
The medical services, treatment, and care you receive may vary depending on the Provider you interact with. Please contact your Provider or Carbon Health Medical directly for any questions regarding your care or medical treatment.
Risks of Telehealth Services
Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. In order to use the Service, you will be required to review and agree to an informed consent regarding the use of telehealth (the “Patient Consent”) that will be provided to you by Carbon Health Medical and Providers through the Site. You agree that Carbon Health Technologies is a third-party beneficiary of the Patient Consent and has the right to enforce it against you.
Neither Carbon Health Technologies nor Carbon Health Medical endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication, he/she will limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in his/her own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written. Providers do not prescribe DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. Carbon Health Technologies and Carbon Health Medical fully honor patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct Carbon Health Medical to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice
Not an Insurance Product
Neither Carbon Health Technologies nor Carbon Health Medical are insurers. The Services are not insurance products, and the amounts you pay to Carbon Health Technologies or Carbon Health Medical are not insurance premiums. If you desire any type of health or other insurance, you will need to purchase such insurance separately.

Supplemental Terms Applicable to Providers
These supplemental terms apply to Providers in addition to the other provisions of these Terms. In the event of a conflict between the supplemental terms and any other terms herein, the supplemental terms shall prevail.
To be a healthcare provider using the Site (for purposes of this Section, “Provider”, or “you”) you must be a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional contracted or employed by Carbon Health Medical, and must agree to comply with all laws, medical board rules, and other rules and regulations applicable to you as a Provider or otherwise. Your relationship with the Carbon Health users (including, but not limited to, your Carbon Health Medical patients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with Carbon Health. Carbon Health does not practice medicine and offers no medical services. As set forth more fully below, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices, and other interactions with patients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Provider and Carbon Health Medical is solely responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, and Carbon Health shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.
Carbon Health does not provide any medical advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or medical issues associated with Provider, goods, or services offered by Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations. Provider should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and should not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining Provider’s compliance obligations under law. Provider and Carbon Health agree that Carbon Health is not providing to customers, patients, or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice. THE CARBON HEALTH SITE AND THE SERVICES ARE NOT MEANT TO SUBSTITUTE OR MODIFY YOUR PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT IN ANY WAY.
Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical practice. While software products such as the Site and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider can offer patients, many factors, including but not limited to the provider/patient relationship can affect a patient outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Site and Services, and the provision of medical services to Provider’s patients. In this regard, Provider releases Carbon Health and waives any and all potential claims against Carbon Health as a result of Provider’s use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s patients.
As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Carbon Health harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any patient of Provider, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a patient, which is brought against Carbon Health, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider’s use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain Carbon Health’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of Carbon Health or defect in the Site or Services. Carbon Health will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement.
If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images, or other materials to us or our Site (“End User Content”) or provide any End User Content to patients or other consumers, you agree not to provide any End User Content that (a) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (b) violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets, or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (c) contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component. End User is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary agreements and consents from, and providing all required notices to, patients and other consumers. You agree not to contact other users through unsolicited e-mail, telephone calls, mailings, or any other method of communication. You represent and warrant to Carbon Health Technologies that you have the legal right and authorization to upload all End User Content at the Site. Carbon Health shall have a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable right and license to use the End User Content however Carbon Health desires, including without limitation, to copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from or sell or distribute such End User Content or incorporate such End User Content into any form, medium, or technology throughout the world. Carbon Health Technologies is and shall be under no obligation: (i) to maintain any End User Content in confidence; (ii) to pay to you any compensation for any End User Content; or (iii) to respond to any End User Content.
Carbon Health Technologies does not regularly review End User Content but does reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any End User Content submitted to the Site. You grant Carbon Health the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any End User Content. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any End User Content. You are and shall remain solely responsible for the content of any End User Content you post to the Site or provide to patients or other consumers. Carbon Health Technologies and its affiliates take no responsibility and assume no liability for any End User Content submitted by you or any third party.
If a dispute of any kind arises, we want to understand and address your concerns quickly and to your satisfaction. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any dispute. If we cannot resolve your concerns, we agree to an informal and inexpensive dispute resolution process requiring individual arbitration. “Disputes” between you and Carbon Health Technologies, including its processors, suppliers or licensors or their respective affiliates, agents, directors or employees, are defined for the purposes of these Terms to include any claim, controversy, or dispute (whether involving contract, tort, equitable, statutory, or any other legal theory) between you and Carbon Health Technologies including, but not limited to, any claims relating in any way to these Terms (including its breach, termination, or interpretation), any other aspect of our relationship, Carbon Health Technologies advertising, and any use of Carbon Health Technologies services.
Binding Individual Arbitration
You and Carbon Health Technologies agree to arbitrate all Disputes. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE ONLY BE ON A INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST CARBON HEALTH. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration). All Disputes shall be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by ADR Services, Inc. according to this provision and the applicable arbitration rules for that forum. Consumer claimants (individuals whose transaction is intended for personal, family, or household use) may elect to pursue their claims in their local small-claims court rather than through arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, fully applies. If you are a consumer bringing a claim relating to personal, household, or family use, any arbitration hearing will occur within the county or parish where you reside. Otherwise, any arbitration hearing will occur in San Francisco, California, or another mutually agreeable location, or a location ordered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you prevail on any claim for which you are legally entitled to attorney’s fees, you may recover those fees from the arbitrator. For any claim where you are seeking relief, Carbon Health Technologies will not seek to have you pay its attorney’s fees, even if fees might otherwise be awarded, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Carbon Health Technologies also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors, and assigns. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases) will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in San Francisco, California, or federal court for the Central District of California.
