INTRODUCTION TO VERIHEAL

Veriheal is not a medical marijuana collective or cooperative. We offer to receive information from medical cannabis patients, to perform patient pre-verification checks in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and provide a virtual environment, such as a website and mobile app, through which patients and lawfully operated collectives, cooperatives, and general businesses may establish a relationship for the provision of medical cannabis. It is the sole responsibility of the third party doctors, or collective, cooperative, or delivery service to be in compliance with applicable state laws and regulations. While we make reasonable efforts, such as by reviewing state licenses, to ensure that any third party providers with whom we affiliate operate in compliance with applicable regulations, we make no representations, promises, or warranties with respect to the legality, suitability, or otherwise regarding such third party providers and have no responsibility or liability with respect to services provided to you by such third parties.

You understand and agree that satisfying the above requirements does not guarantee that you will receive Services through Veriheal.  In addition to the above requirements, Veriheal and certain affiliated professional entities reserve the right to change or include new requirements as deemed appropriate in their sole discretion without providing prior notice to you. By using Veriheal’s Service, you expressly represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old, have capacity to enter into this agreement, are located in a jurisdiction where medical cannabis is legal, agree to the terms of this Agreement, and that you will comply with this agreement in all respects.

IV. YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH VERIHEAL

Veriheal does not provide any medical services, including via the Sites and Services.  Rather, Veriheal provides a technology platform for you to access an independent licensed health care provider or similar affiliated professional entities and obtain access to additional information, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your health care and wellness.  The health and wellness resources made available through our Services are not a substitute for direct in-person health care services in all cases. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both, rests with you and the health care provider. You understand that by coordinating and,  in certain cases, consulting with a licensed healthcare provider or an affiliate health care provider through the Services, you are not entering into a provider-patient relationship with Veriheal. You further agree that the opinions expressed by a licensed health care provider are solely those of the provider and are not an expression of opinion or medical diagnosis by Veriheal.

Veriheal is not responsible for any fraud, falsifying, or misrepresentation that has been made from people falsely claiming to work with Veriheal. If you do get in contact with such person(s) you are required to contact us to verify they are an official representative of Veriheal.

By accepting the Terms, you agree and consent to Veriheal, Veriheal affiliates, or licensed health care providers sending you disclosures, notices, messages, reports, and other communications.  It is your responsibility to monitor these communications. You acknowledge and agree that you will not hold us or any Veriheal affiliate liable for any loss, injury, or claim of any kind resulting from your failure to read these communications or for your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations contained in these communications.

V. CONSULTATIVE SERVICE

In some cases, a licensed healthcare provider or affiliated health care provider may use the Services to provide advice or treatment to you.  A licensed health care provider consulting with you through the Services may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance.  Therefore, the health care provider may not be aware of facts or information that may affect his or her opinion regarding a potential diagnosis or treatment recommendation. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation, Veriheal strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with a health care provider.  Moreover, a health care provider utilizing Veriheal may be limited by state law in prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination. By deciding to engage the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) any diagnosis you may receive is limited and, in some cases, provisional; (ii) the health care services are not intended, in all cases, to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a health care provider; (iii) a health care provider acting through the Services may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on” physical examination; and (iv) the absence of a physical examination may affect the health care provider’s ability to diagnose any potential condition, disease or injury.  

You further understand that the opinions and recommendations that you receive through the Service are solely those of the licensed healthcare provider and not Veriheal.  Veriheal has no employment or agency relationship with any of the licensed healthcare providers using the Service and, as such, is not responsible or liable for any of the provider’s opinions or recommendations. 

VI. PERSONALIZED COUNSELING

In some cases, a qualified cannabis consultant may use the Services to provide you general information about the cannabis plant.  By electing to have a personalized consultation, you understand and agree that that the information provided by the cannabis consultant is for informational purposes only, is not medical advice, and is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition.  You further understand and agree that the cannabis consultant’s opinions and recommendations are solely those of the consultant and not Veriheal. Veriheal has no employment or agency relationship with any of the cannabis consultants using the Service and, as such, is not responsible or liable for any of the consultant’s opinions or recommendations. 

VII. COMPLIANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE MEDICAL CANNABIS LAWS

By signing up for Veriheal and/or using any of Veriheal’s Services, you expressly acknowledge that Veriheal is solely for qualified patients residing in states who have adopted legislation providing medical use of marijuana. You further represent that you are such a patient or, where permissible, the primary caregiver for such a patient. You expressly acknowledge that you are familiar and assume full responsibility for cooperating with all laws regarding the use, possession, cultivation, transportation, and distribution of medical cannabis. You further acknowledge that any of these activities may be illegal under state law unless all participants are acting completely within the scope of their respective states’ medical marijuana laws. You further acknowledge that you understand that the use, possession, cultivation, transportation, and/or distribution of cannabis is illegal under federal law, and that individuals are subject to arrest and/or prosecution by federal officials. You acknowledge and agree that Veriheal neither provides nor has any obligation to provide any legal protections, such as indemnification, with respect to any civil, criminal, or administrative proceeding, investigation, litigation, or prosecution. Veriheal has its principal place of business in Washington D.C. However, Veriheal may is accessible to all states. Regardless of the state in which you live, you must abide by and follow the laws of the state in which you are a resident.

You agree that you may not and shall not authorize others to use your user status, that you may not and shall not assign or otherwise transfer your user account to any other person or entity, and that you may not and shall not share with or distribute to any third party any medical cannabis except to the extent you are the primary caregiver for a qualified patient, where applicable law provides for the same. You further agree that you will at all times act in full compliance with the laws of your state concerning medical (or recreational) use of cannabis collectives and/or cooperatives, and all applicable marijuana laws.

Except as provided in subsection “I” below and to enforce an arbitrator’s decision hereunder, all disputes, controversies, or claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement or a breach thereof, the Privacy Policy, our relationship, or your use or attempted use of the Website or any product or service, shall be submitted to and finally resolved by individual, confidential arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect. The following terms shall apply. You, Veriheal, or any involved third party may pursue a claim. Veriheal agrees to final and binding confidential arbitration should it have any claims against you. Likewise, you agree to final and binding confidential arbitration should you have any claims against Veriheal. By agreeing to arbitrate, you waive the right to go to court and agree instead to submit any claims to final and binding confidential arbitration. This arbitration provision sets forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to final and binding confidential arbitration and is governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended

A. Required Pre-Dispute Procedures

We acknowledge and agree that before initiating any claim against the other, we agree to first contact the other with a written description of the dispute, which shall include all relevant documents and information, and the proposed resolution. You may send the written description of any dispute you have with us by e-mail to info@veriheal.com. Veriheal will contact you by letter at the billing address you provided to us or at the email address you provided to us. You agree to negotiate with Veriheal or its designated representative in good faith about your problem or dispute. If for some reason the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after receipt of the written dispute, we agree to the dispute resolution provisions below. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other term of this arbitration agreement, we will have the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in state or federal court located in the District of Columbia to enforce these Terms or prevent an infringement of a third party’s rights or our intellectual property rights, as stated in subsection “I” below. You hereby expressly consent to, and forever waive any challenge to, the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of said courts in such actions.

B. Commencing Arbitration

You and Veriheal agree to commence any arbitration proceeding within 1 year after the claim arises (the 1 year period includes the required pre-dispute procedures set forth above) and that any arbitration proceeding commenced after 1 year shall be forever barred.

C. Arbitration Location 

If the amount in controversy is $500 or less, then the arbitration may be conducted by telephone or by written submissions. Otherwise, the arbitration shall be conducted in the District of Columbia unless Veriheal otherwise agrees to arbitrate in another forum requested by you.

D. Organization, Rules, and the Arbitrator 

We each agree that any and all claims other than those exempted under subsection “I” below shall be submitted to final and binding confidential arbitration before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Either party may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party, within the time period set forth in subsection “b” above. The arbitrator shall be selected by agreement of the parties or, if the parties cannot agree, chosen in accordance with Rules of the AAA. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. The AAA’s Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, construction, validity, applicability, or enforceability of these Terms, the Privacy Policy, any additional terms specific to an individual product or service, and this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether any dispute is arbitrable. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether this arbitration agreement can be enforced against a non-signatory to this agreement and whether a non-signatory to this agreement can enforce this provision against you or Veriheal.

E. Fees

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Rules. We will reimburse the fees charged by the arbitrator for claims totaling less than $5,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. In all other respects, the parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.

F. Governing Law and Award 

The arbitrator shall follow the substantive law of the District of Columbia without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. Any award rendered shall include a confidential written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the FAA. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  Enforcements of any award or judgment shall be governed by the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.

G. Enforceability

This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with Veriheal, bankruptcy, assignment, or transfer. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply. If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.

H. Miscellaneous

Failure or any delay in enforcing this arbitration provision in connection with any particular claim will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other claims except all claims must be brought within the 1 year limitation period set forth above. This provision is the entire arbitration agreement between you and Veriheal and shall not be modified except in writing by Veriheal.

I. Exceptions

Notwithstanding the foregoing, and as an exception to final and binding confidential arbitration, you and Veriheal both retain the right to pursue, in small claims court, any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class) basis, including overdue account matters within the small claims court’s jurisdiction. Veriheal will not demand arbitration in connection with any individual claim that you properly file and pursue in a small claims court, so long as the claim is and remains pending in that court. The following claims shall not be subject to final and binding arbitration and must be adjudicated only in the state or federal courts located in District of Columbia: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim relating to the infringement or validity of our proprietary rights, including without limitation, trademarks, service marks, trade dress, copyrights, trade secrets, or patents, or the intellectual property rights of a third-party; or (ii) an action by Veriheal for temporary, preliminary, or permanent injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief, against you for breach or threatened breach of this Agreement. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims that are excluded from final and binding arbitration pursuant to this subsection “I” in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration. Small claims matters may be filed in any small claims court with personal and subject matter jurisdiction over the parties. For all other matters excluded from final and binding arbitration by this subsection “I,” the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in the District of Columbia, and forever waive any challenge to said courts’ jurisdiction and venue.
