You are not obligated to register with HelloMD in order to access the HelloMD Sites. However, certain services of the HelloMD Sites are available only to users who have registered with HelloMD or other persons affiliated with HelloMD who have been granted accounts with usernames and passwords (“Secure Users”). If you are a Secure User, you agree to accurately maintain and update any information about yourself that you have provided to HelloMD. If you do not maintain such information, or HelloMD has reasonable grounds to suspect as much, HelloMD has the right to suspend or terminate your account and your use of the HelloMD Sites. You may have as many active Secure User accounts on the HelloMD Sites as you choose at any given time, and only you may use your designated accounts to access the HelloMD Sites, and you may not use anyone else’s account at any time. With the exception of parents and legal guardians acting on behalf of minor Qualifying Patients in accordance with the laws and regulations of the respective Medical Cannabis State, you may not make any request for a Patient Recommendation on behalf of any other individual with a HelloMD account or otherwise at any time. You also agree to promptly notify HelloMD of any unauthorized use of your username, password or any other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to the HelloMD Sites by emailing HelloMD at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, you agree to exit from your Secure User account at the end of each session. HelloMD explicitly disclaims liability for any and all losses and damages arising from your failure to comply with this section.
Our HelloMD Sites requires users to give us unique identifiers in order to log into many areas of the HelloMD Sites. We utilize these unique identifiers to verify the user’s identity and eligibility, in order to protect our members from the release of sensitive or personally identifiable information to unauthorized users. To help protect the privacy of data you transmit through the HelloMD Sites, where personally identifiable information is requested, we also use technology designed to encrypt the information that you input before it is sent to us using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology or similar encryption technology. In addition, HelloMD takes steps to protect the user data we collect against unauthorized access. However, you should keep in mind that the HelloMD Sites and our services are run on software, hardware, and networks, any component of which may, from time to time, require maintenance or experience problems or breaches of security beyond our control.
You must exercise caution, good sense, and sound judgment in using the HelloMD Sites. You are prohibited from violating, or attempting to violate, the security of the HelloMD Sites. Any such violations may result in criminal and/or civil penalties against you. HelloMD may investigate any alleged or suspected violations and if a criminal violation is suspected whether in regards to the HelloMD Sites, your Content or your procurement of a Patient Recommendation, HelloMD will cooperate with law enforcement agencies in their investigations or any court order, including any legal order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Site.
You certify to HelloMD that the Content you provide on or through any of the HelloMD Sites is accurate and that the information you provide on or through the HelloMD Sites is complete.
