Please read carefully before signing up. The following terms of service (“Terms of Service”) govern your use of the FollowApp Care platform (the “Platform”) and the FollowApp Care web-based Safety Protocol (“Service”), to protect both clinic staff and patients with automated predefined pre and post-visit check-ins accessed through the Site and operated by FollowApp Care (“FollowApp” or “we”).
By using the Site and/or the Service, you irrevocably agree that such use is subject to these Terms of Service. If you are entering into these Terms of Service on behalf of an entity (“Customer”), you are binding such entity to these Terms of Service, you represent that you have the actual authority to bind such entity to these Terms of Service, and references to “you” mean such entity. You represent and warrant that you have the legal capacity (including, without limitation, being of sufficient age) to enter into contracts under the law of the jurisdiction in which you reside.
If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, you may not use the Site or the Service. FollowApp expressly reserves the right to modify the Terms of Service at any time in its sole discretion by including such alteration and/or modification in these Terms of Service, along with a notice of the effective date of such modified Terms of Service. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you through your User Account or in the Service itself. The modified terms will be effective as to such subscription Service upon your next subscription renewal. In this case, if you object to the updated terms, as your exclusive remedy, you may choose not to renew. In all other cases, any continued use by you of the Site or the Service after the posting of such modified Terms of Service shall be deemed to indicate your irrevocable agreement to such modified Terms of Service.
The Service shall commence on the date of the digital approval of this agreement and shall run for a limited Free Trial Period and the initial term, as agreed in the “Subscription Offer”. At the end of the Initial Term this Agreement shall automatically be renewed.

Payments will be collected along the last week prior to the renewed term if registered by Direct Debit or on the monthly defined date if registered by card details. 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, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes. Some features of the Service may only be accessed and used upon the payment of applicable fees (“Fees”). Fees may vary depending on usage (e.g. number of clinics, users, patients and/or SMS) in accordance with our current pricing policy. If you do not initially register for a version of the Service that requires the payment of a fee, you will nonetheless be permitted to use selected features of the Service for the “Free Trial Period” defined in the “Subscription Offer”. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING CONTAINED HEREIN, ANY SERVICE PROVIDED DURING THE FREE TRIAL PERIOD IS PROVIDED “AS-IS” WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR INDEMNITIES. Upon the expiration of the Free Trial Period, you will only be able to access and use those features of the Service unless you pay for the Service. Promotional pricing and free trials cannot be combined with other offers.

Content and timing of Pathways may be updated according to the latest guidelines; find updated templates in your Subscription Details. The accompanying algorithms are guidance and not directives. They do not override laws, regulations, or official orders that exist or that may come into existence in particular states or localities. Dentists should stay up-to-date about local developments in this regard and, if necessary, consult local legal counsel. It is encouraged that dentists making treatment decisions to consider these algorithms in exercising their clinical judgment based on their own education and experience and in the light of any unique patient-specific factors. The purpose of the algorithms is to assist dentists and dental offices in making informed decisions concerning patient triage, evaluation, and treatment. The algorithms are based on the best scientific information currently available from national, country-specific dental associations and are not influenced by legal, economic, or political considerations. They provide conservative general guidelines that may eventually be shown to have more applicability to some regions and practice settings than to others. As more information becomes available, they may be modified or supplemented. The algorithms do not constitute legal advice or legal guidance, but because their goal is to minimize transmission of the coronavirus to patients and the dental team to the reasonable extent possible in the context of providing for patient healthcare needs, the algorithms may serve to help lower legal exposure by lowering the risk that anyone will contract the virus in a dental office that follows them.
