BY ACCESSING, VIEWING, OR USING THE CONTENT, MATERIAL, OR FUNCTIONS AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THIS SITE, AND/OR BY REGISTERING WITH US, YOU INDICATE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT YOU AGREE TO THEM AND INTEND TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THEM.
If you do not accept these terms and conditions, you must not access or use the Site. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE TERMS, CONDITIONS, RULES, POLICIES, GUIDELINES OR PRACTICES OF THE LIFE ELEVATED SITE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING IT.
Life Elevated may revise this Agreement at any time by updating this webpage posting. Use of the Website after such changes are posted will signify your agreement to these revised terms. You should visit this webpage periodically to review this Agreement.
1. About The Website, CareMate Service and Registration Process
The Site contains (a) website information, (b) functions, and (c) a special web-based Service, called the CareMate Service.
The CareMate Service is designed to assist seniors with various daily living tasks, and to assist family members and other caregivers (each a “Caregiver”) in helping to manage certain needs of their senior loved ones and care recipients (each a “Care Recipient”).
2. General Conditions
You must be at least 18 years old to use Life Elevated’s CareMate Service, and our Site.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. You are solely responsible for activity that occurs on Your account. You must immediately notify Life Elevated of any unauthorized use of your password or account. You shall never use another user’s account without such other user’s express permission. Life Elevated cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
Your use of the Service is at your sole risk. The service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis.
You understand that Life Elevated uses third party vendors, carriers and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Service.
You must not modify, adapt or hack the Service or modify another website so as to falsely imply that it is associated with the Service, or Life Elevated.
You must not transmit any computer worms or viruses or any code of a destructive nature.
3. Fees and Payment
All accounts include a free trial period. When the trial is over, you will have to pay to continue to use the Service.
Caregiver agrees to timely pay all applicable fees in connection with Your use of the Service. Fees are due at the beginning of every payment period.
Payment is to be made through our online payment system. When you want to begin paying, you will set up a recurring payment arrangement with the online payment processor (for example, with PayPal).
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.
4. Late Payment
If payment is not received by the start of the new payment period, you will be given a short grace period, during which time your account and Service will remain fully operational. (You will have a “Client-not-in-good-standing” status.)
If we receive your required payment during the grace period, your Service will continue to operate, as normal, and your status will return to “Client-in-good-standing”.
If we do not receive your required payment during the grace period, your account and Service will be suspended. You will still be able to go into your account, but no telephone calls to the senior, nor text message alerts to the family caregiver will go out. Once we receive your required payment, we will enable your Service. The payment will cover the current payment period. If we do not receive your required payment by the end of the payment period, your account and Service will be terminated.
5. Fee Changes
We reserve the right to change our fees and to institute new charges at any time, with no less than ten (10) days prior notice. Notice will be provided directly to registered users, by e-mail. Notice will also be given in the “Purchase Options” webpage.
Fee changes do not affect the fees paid by existing paying clients. Whatever fee a client starts paying, that is the fee they pay, as long as they stay with the same plan and payment period. (If the client changes their plan or payment period, they will be charged the current fee.)
6. Canceling Your Service
You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. You can cancel your account at any time by logging into your account and selecting the “Cancel Service” link. The link will take you to a webpage that gives you instructions on how to cancel your Service. Specifically, it gives instructions on how to cancel your PayPal recurring payment arrangement. That is all you have to do to cancel your Service.
An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation.
Note: PayPal indicates that if you cancel your PayPal recurring payment arrangement three days or more before the end of your current paid up payment period, your cancellation will take effect with the next payment period. This means that there will be no online payment for the next payment period, and no online payment on an on-going basis.
You will have use of the Service up to the end of your last paid up payment period.
All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. The information cannot be recovered once your account is canceled.
Life Elevated, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other Life Elevated service, for any reason, at any time. Two instances where Life Elevated may suspend or terminate your account and Service are: (i) if at any time Life Elevated is notified that the Caregiver’s expressed authority and consent from the relevant Care Recipient, to enter into this Agreement and register for the Service on that Care Recipient’s, has been withdrawn or was misrepresented; (ii) if Life Elevated has reasonable grounds to suspect that the information you provide to us is not true, accurate, current or/and complete.
Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in your Account (without any right of refund). Life Elevated reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
Life Elevated may also terminate your right to access and use the Site, or any part of the Site, if you breach any term or condition of this Agreement.
All provisions of the Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
8. Not Medical Advice
Life Elevated does not offer medical advice or diagnoses or engage in the practice of medicine. Our Service is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment and is offered for informational purposes only. Always seek the advice of Care Recipient’s physician or other qualified health provider with any questions regarding Care Recipient’s medical condition or the use (or frequency) of any medication for Care Recipient. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something You have read in connection with our Service.
No physician/patient relationship is created between Life Elevated and you by reason of your use of the Site or under any circumstances. Individual inquiries about sensitive or confidential matters should be addressed to appropriate health care professionals.
