What Are The Services?
CarePICS has developed a software solution that helps healthcare providers screen, assess, and treat peripheral artery disease, critical limb ischemia, and wound care patients more effectively. The Platform captures a photo of a patient’s open wound, analyzes the photo, and transmits the photo and results to the patient’s healthcare provider for further analysis and treatment management. The Platform is often used by specialist providers who engage in consultations with other specialists to better assess a patient’s condition. You are either a “Provider User” or a “Patient User”.
For Patient Users:
By accepting these Terms, You agree and acknowledge that We do not provide clinical, laboratory, or supplement manufacturing services. Our role is limited to supporting and facilitating Your access to these products and services via Our Platform. Each third-party affiliate is responsible for the products and services provided. YOU HEREBY AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT CAREPICS IS IN NO WAY PROVIDING DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT TO YOU. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE INFORMATION, PROCESSES, PRODUCTS, AND OTHER ITEMS REFERENCED IN THE PLATFORM ARE NOT INTENDED AS A RECOMMENDATION OR ENDORSEMENT OF ANY COURSE OF ACTION, INFORMATION, OR PRODUCT. WE EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM THE CREATION OF A PROVIDER-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.
If at any time You are concerned about the care or treatment You receive from healthcare professionals affiliated with the Services (“Providers”), please contact your primary care physician or other current treatment provider. If You believe or suspect or someone else advises You that You have a serious or life-threatening condition, call 9-1-1 in areas where that service is available, or go to the nearest emergency room.
A PROVIDER’S USE OF OUR SERVICES TO DELIVER CARE TO YOU IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OR RECOMMENDATION OF SUCH PROVIDER BY CAREPICS. WE DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE, AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR OR IN CONTROL OF THE MEDICAL ADVICE PROVIDED TO YOU BY PROVIDERS, EVEN IF SUCH ADVICE IS PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICES.
We do not confirm the credentials of any Provider using the Platform. We do not validate that any such persons are in good standing with their respective licensure board(s) or that they are using the Platform in accordance with laws applicable to their scope of practice. If you are a patient user, it is Your responsibility to separately confirm that a Provider is in good standing with his or her respective licensing board(s) and to exercise whatever other due diligence You feel appropriate in selecting and maintaining Your choice of healthcare professionals.
We do NOT guide medical decision-making or provide medical advice
THE SERVICES CANNOT AND ARE NOT DESIGNED, INTENDED, OR APPROPRIATE TO REPLACE THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL OR TO ADDRESS SERIOUS, EMERGENT, OR LIFE-THREATENING MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND SHOULD NOT BE USED IN THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES. If You have or suspect that You have an urgent medical problem or condition, please contact a qualified healthcare professional immediately. Never disregard, avoid, or delay obtaining medical advice from a doctor or other qualified healthcare professional because of something learned or instructed via the Services. THE CONTENT ON THE SITE IS NOT AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED MEDICAL ADVICE OR A SUBSTITUTE FOR INDIVIDUAL MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT, INCLUDING INFORMATION REGARDING WHICH DRUGS, THERAPY, OR OTHER TREATMENT MAY BE APPROPRIATE FOR YOU.
For Provider Users:
We are acting solely as a technology platform that enables You to provide healthcare services and connect with your patients. We do not supervise or direct You in Your provision of such healthcare services to your patients. We do not make any representations or warranties the medical services You are providing are suitable, reliable, timely or accurate for the patient, all of which are Your responsibility.

We reserve the right to terminate Your access to and use of the Services at any time, with or without cause.

*PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS*
Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to Your satisfaction by emailing support at INFO@CarePICS.com. In the unlikely event that Our support team is unable to resolve a complaint You may have (or if We have not been able to resolve a dispute with You after attempting to do so informally), including but not limited to any alleged breach of these Terms, You and CarePICS agree to resolve the dispute through binding arbitration in Wake County, North Carolina before a single arbitrator, in accordance with the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association and the laws of North Carolina without reference to its conflict of laws provisions. Arbitration, which is often less expensive, faster, and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, and may, but do not have to, award legal fees, arbitrator’s fees and costs and other costs incurred by the party that does not win the dispute.
Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. Any arbitration will be strictly confidential and neither party will disclose to any person (other than necessary to carry out the arbitration) the existence of the dispute or any aspect of the dispute.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or CarePICS from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or CarePICS from applying to a court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary. THE PROPER VENUE FOR ANY ACTION PERMITTED UNDER THIS SUBSECTION REGARDING “EQUITABLE RELIEF” WILL BE THE FEDERAL AND STATE COURTS LOCATED IN WAKE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA; THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THE VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS.
Any claim or dispute arising under these Terms must be initiated for mediation and/or arbitration within two (2) years from its accrual date. Any claim or dispute initiated two (2) years or longer from its accrual date shall be time-barred and dismissed.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: CarePICS may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Platform or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Notwithstanding the above, You can decline or “opt out” of the alternative dispute resolution process described above by contacting INFO@CarePICS.com within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and stating that You (first and last name) decline this dispute resolution process.
If You opt-out of the dispute resolution process described in this section, or if any matter is otherwise determined not to be subject to such dispute resolution process, You hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting within 25 miles of Wake County, North Carolina in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms. You agree that any and all claims and matters arising out of these Terms, unless subject to the dispute resolution process described above, may be heard and determined in any such court, and You hereby waive any right to object to such filing on grounds of improper venue, forum non-conveniens, or other venue-related grounds, unless such objection asserts that the claim or matter in dispute is subject to determination through the dispute resolution process described above.
General Contract Terms
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of North Carolina without reference to its conflict of laws provisions.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without CarePICS’ prior written consent. Any attempt by You to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. CarePICS may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given: (i) by CarePICS via email (in each case to the address that You provide); and/or (ii) by posting to the Platform. For notices made by email, the notice will be effective as of the date the notice is first transmitted. You agree that any notice received from CarePICS electronically satisfies any legal requirement that such notice be in writing. YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE WITH CAREPICS IS ACCURATE AND CURRENT, AND NOTICE TO YOU SHALL BE DEEMED EFFECTIVE UPON THE SENDING BY INFO@CAREPICS.COM OF AN EMAIL TO THE ADDRESS WE HAVE ON FILE.
You shall give any notice to CarePICS by email to: INFO@CarePICS.com. Notice to CarePICS shall be effective upon receipt of notice by CarePICS.
NO INADVERTENT WAIVER
The failure of CarePICS to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of CarePICS. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If, for any reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
If any provision of these Terms is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms remain in full force, provided that the essential terms and conditions remain valid, binding and enforceable and the economic and legal substance of the transactions contemplated by these Terms are materially preserved.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
“Intellectual Property Rights” means all intellectual property rights or similar proprietary rights, including (a) patent rights and utility models, (b) copyrights and database rights, (c) trademarks, trade names, domain names and trade dress and the goodwill associated therewith, (d) trade secrets, (e) mask works, and (f) industrial design rights; in each case, including any registrations of, applications to register, and renewals and extensions of, any of the foregoing in any jurisdiction in the world.
As between You and Us, all right, title and interest, including all Intellectual Property Rights, in the Services, any related materials, logos, products, and documentation, and any other property or materials furnished or made available hereunder, and all modifications and enhancements thereof, belong to and are retained solely by CarePICS or its licensors, vendors and affiliates, as applicable. All rights not expressly granted are reserved by Us. Any use of the Services not expressly permitted by these Terms is a breach of these Terms and may violate copyright, trademark and other laws.
