Terms & Conditions
Last Revised: [7/3/2020] (“Effective Date”)
Welcome to Green Mind Physicians. Green Mind Physicians (herein referred to as “Green Mind”, “the Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) provides services through a third-party, HIPAA-compliant technology platform (the “Platform”). Use of the Platform and our website at www.greenmindphysicians.com (collectively, the “Services”) is governed by these terms and conditions (the “Agreement”). Although accessible by others, the Services (which include content) are intended for access and use only by U.S. customers. Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Services.
General Terms and Conditions
The web is an evolving medium. If we need to change the terms of this Agreement in the future, we will post the revised Terms and Conditions through the Platform or our website and update the Effective Date to reflect the date of the changes. You agree to review these Terms and Conditions each time you use the Services so that you are aware of any modifications made to this Agreement. By continuing to access or use the Services after we post such changes, you agree to the terms of this Agreement, as modified.
What Services does Green Mind Provide?
Green Mind is designed to offer information and a means to connect you with health care providers who can offer telehealth and in-person consultations. For the avoidance of doubt, the capitalized word “Services” as used in this Agreement refers only to the Platform, website and related content and does not refer to the telehealth and/or in-person consultations and treatment that users receive from health care providers. None of the website or Platform content should be considered medical advice or an endorsement, representation or warranty that any particular medication or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you.
How to Use the Platform
To use the Platform, you first need to sign up with Green Mind. When signing up, you are obligated to provide us with certain information, such as your name, address, date of birth, and credit card information. We may also request that you provide medical records corroborating your medical condition in accordance with state laws. Upon successful completion of the sign up process, we will provide you with a personal account, accessible for you with a password of your choice.
By using the Platform and the Services, you affirm that you are of eighteen (18) years of age and have full authority to enter into this Agreement.
If you download the Platform on your mobile device, the GPS receiver installed on the mobile device may detect your location. We may also use the manual input you provide through the Platform to determine your location. The Platform identifies to you healthcare professionals who t have engaged us to provide administrative, scheduling, and other operational services. In the event a health care professional agrees to provide you with healthcare services, the Platform schedules those services and bills you on behalf of the healthcare professional. We make no representation or warranty to you any health care professional will be available to perform health care services.
GREEN MIND IS NOT ENGAGED IN THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE OR ANY OTHER LICENSED PROFESSION, DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL SERVICES, AND IS NOT A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER. GREEN MIND DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE OR ANY OTHER LICENSED PROFESSION BY ANY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL, WHO ARE EACH RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OR HER SERVICES AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO HIS OR HER PROFESSION AND LICENSE. THE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL WITH WHICH YOU ESTABLISH A TREATMENT RELATIONSHIP IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING YOU WITH MEDICAL SERVICES. WE ONLY PROVIDE A TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM TO CONNECT YOU WITH HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN PROVIDING YOU WITH MEDICAL SERVICES.
Your Use of the Services
You represent and warrant that the information you provide to us is accurate and complete. You acknowledge and agree that we are entitled at all times to verify the information provided and to deny your use of the Services at any time for any reason or no reason. You may only access the Services using authorized means.
By accessing or using the Services, you further agree that:
· You will only use the Services for your sole, personal use and you will not resell them to a third party;
· You will not copy or distribute the Services or other Services content;
· You will not upload or transmit any communications or content of any type that infringes or violates any rights of any party;

We reserve the right to immediately terminate your use of the Services should you fail to comply with any of the foregoing rules.
Our Right to Use User-Provided Content
We may, in our sole discretion, permit you to post or submit content and other materials through the Services (collectively, “User-Provided Content”). You grant us, and anyone authorized by us, a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to use, copy, modify, transmit, sell, exploit, create derivative works from, distribute, and/or publicly perform or display such User-Provided Content, in whole or in part, in any manner or medium (whether now known or hereafter developed), for any purpose that we choose. Also, you grant us, and anyone authorized by us, the right to identify you as the author of any User-Provided Content submitted by you. You will not receive any compensation of any kind for the use of any User-Provided Content submitted by you.
You acknowledge that Green Mind only acts as a passive conduit for the distribution of the User-Provided Content and is not responsible or liable to you or to any third party for the content or accuracy of the User-Provided Content. You understand that we have no obligation to monitor any areas of the Services through which users can post User-Provided Content. However, we reserve the right at all times, in our sole discretion, to screen User-Provided Content and to edit, move, delete, and/or refuse to accept any User-Provided Content that in our judgment violates this Agreement or is otherwise unacceptable or inappropriate, whether for legal or other reasons.
Any use by you of the User-Provided Content is entirely at your own risk. You represent and warrant that any User-Provided Content posted or transmitted by you is original to you and does not copy the work of any third party or otherwise infringe any third party intellectual property rights, rights of privacy or publicity rights and does not contain any defamatory or disparaging statements. Furthermore, you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant the license described above.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Green Mind, Green Mind’s affiliates, and each of its and their respective directors, officers, managers, employees, shareholders, agents, representatives, licensors, successors and assigns from and against any and all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that arise out of any User-Provided Content posted or transmitted through the Services by you or by others using your account.
User-Provided Content NEVER applies to PHI. PHI is never shared without permission.
(Dr. Lee’s message: This whole section is included to basically say, “We send a feedback form out after your appointment. I might use your quotes on our social media at some point.” TY!)
There is no charge to register with us. Green Mind does not require you to download the Platform on your mobile device, but if you choose to do so, there is no charge to download the Platform. You are charged only when you actually use the Services by scheduling a consultation and/or a service with a health care professional.
The rates that apply for the telehealth or in-person medical consultation services provided by the health care professionals can be found on our website and through the Platform. These may be modified or updated from time to time. It is your own responsibility to remain informed about the current rates for the medical services made available through the Platform.
Green Mind shall, on behalf of the health care professional, charge you for the medical services provided to you by that health care professional. Such charge may be in the name of the health care professional that provided treatment, rather than in the name of Green Mind. You agree that you will pay for all medical services you receive from the health care professional, and that Green Mind may charge your credit card account, as provided by you when registering for the Services, for the medical services including any taxes and late fees, as applicable, that may be accrued by or in connection with your account. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing Green Mind with a valid credit card account for payment of all fees at all times. Any payment made is non-refundable.
At present we do not process any insurance claims, nor will the health care professionals process claims on your behalf. Although the consultations/treatments you receive from health care professionals through the Platform may or may not be covered by your insurance, it is solely up to you to contact your health plan, determine whether coverage applies and submit a claim. You are responsible for the full fee (and for paying the fee in advance) regardless of whether you later are able to receive reimbursement from your health plan for part or all of the cost.
Intellectual Property Ownership
Green Mind alone (and its licensors, where applicable) shall own all right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to the Services and any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by you or any other party relating to the Services. Any copy, modification, revision, enhancement, adaptation, translation, or derivative work of or created from the Services shall be owned solely and exclusively by Green Mind, and/or, as applicable, Green Mind’s third-party vendors, as shall any and all patent rights, copyrights, trade secret rights, trademark rights, and all other proprietary rights, worldwide therein and thereto, and you hereby assign to Green Mind any and all of your rights, title or interests in the Services or any modification to or derivative work of the Services. You shall not remove or authorize or permit any third party to remove any proprietary rights legend from the Services.
