WHAT ARE THE SERVICES?
Antidote operates a membership based mobile application (the “App”) that provides access to certain third-party services to support accessible and affordable health services. The services available are offered by Antidote and its third-party vendors and affiliates, which may include healthcare providers (“Providers”). By accepting these Terms, You agree and acknowledge that We do not provide clinical, laboratory, Imaging or pharmaceutical services. Our role is limited to supporting and facilitating Your access to these services via our App. Each third-party affiliate is responsible for the services provided.
YOU HEREBY AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT Antidote 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 APP 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 advice or treatment You receive from a Provider affiliated with the App, 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.
WHILE Antidote ENSURES THE CREDENTIALS OF ALL PROVIDERS THAT ARE PROVIDING SERVICES THROUGH THE APP, A PROVIDER’S USE OF OUR APP TO DELIVER CARE TO YOU IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OR RECOMMENDATION OF SUCH PROVIDER BY Antidote. WE DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE, AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR OR IN CONTROL OF THE MEDICAL ADVICE PROVIDED TO YOU BY ANY PROVIDER, EVEN IF SUCH ADVICE IS PROVIDED THROUGH THE APP. WE DO NOT CONTROL OR INTERFERE WITH THE JUDGMENT OF ANY PROFESSIONALS WITH WHOM YOU MAY FORM A PROVIDER-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP THROUGH OUR MEMBERSHIP PROGRAMS.
We do confirm the credentials of any Provider using the App and validate that any such persons are in good standing with their respective licensure board(s). We do not ensure that they are using the App in accordance with laws applicable to their scope of practice. It is Your responsibility to exercise whatever due diligence You feel appropriate in selecting and maintaining Your choice of healthcare professionals.
THE SERVICES CANNOT AND ARE NOT DESIGNED, INTENDED OR APPROPRIATE TO REPLACE THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER 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 provider because of something learned or instructed via the Services. If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem or condition, please contact a qualified healthcare professional. THE EDUCATIONAL 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 PROVIDERS FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT, INCLUDING INFORMATION REGARDING WHICH DRUGS, THERAPY, OR OTHER TREATMENT MAY BE APPROPRIATE FOR YOU.

If we change or modify these Terms, we will let You know by (1) posting a new version of the Terms to the App; and (2) notifying You of update.
If You continue to use the Services after we have let You know that we have made changes, You agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If You do not accept the changes, You should immediately stop using the Services and delete all files associated with the Services on Your device or computer.
WHO OWNS THE ANTIDOTE CONTENT AND APP?
M&B owns any educational or other content (“M&B Content”) and the App. Subject to Your compliance with these Terms, Antidote grants You a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to use the Antidote Content and App. THE ANTIDOTE CONTENT AND APP ARE FOR YOUR PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. You may not use the Antidote Content and App for any other purpose than what is allowed under these Terms without Antidote’s express written permission.
You may not use Antidote’s name, trademarks, service marks, or logos, or those of third parties appearing on the App in any advertising or publicity or to otherwise indicate Antidote’s or such third-party’s sponsorship or affiliation with any product or service without express written permission from Antidote or such third-party.
App Store & Google Play
If You downloaded the App from the Apple App Store or Google Play (the “App Provider”), by agreeing to these Terms, You acknowledge that You understand and agree to the following:
- the Terms are only between You and Antidote, and not between You and the App Provider, and only Antidote is responsible for the App (not the App Provider);
- the App Provider has no obligation to furnish any maintenance or support services with respect to the App;
- in the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, (i) You may notify the App Provider and the App Provider will refund the purchase price for the App to You (if applicable), (ii) to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the App Provider will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and (iii) any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be our the App Provider’s responsibility;
- the App Provider is not responsible for addressing any claims You have or any claims of any third party relating to the App or Your possession and use of the App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the app fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation;
- in the event of any third-party claim that the App or Your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, the App Provider will not be responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement or discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim; and
- the App Provider, and its subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these Terms as it relates to your license of the App. This means that, upon your acceptance of this Agreement, the App Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as related to Your license of the App against You.
Apple users only: If You downloaded the App from the App Store, the license granted to You in this Agreement is non-transferable and is for use of the App on any Apple products that You own or control.

*PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS*
Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to Your satisfaction by emailing Antidote support at email@example.com. In the unlikely event that our support team is unable to resolve a complaint You may have (or if Antidote has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with You after attempting to do so informally), including but not limited to any alleged breach of these Terms, You and Antidote agree to resolve the dispute through binding arbitration virtually before a single arbitrator, in accordance with the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association and the laws of the State of New York. 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 Antidote 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 Antidote 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 NEW YORK; THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THE VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Antidote may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the App 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 in the State of New York within twenty-five (25) miles of New York, New York 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 LANGUAGE
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without reference to its conflict of laws provisions.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Antidote’s prior written consent. Any attempt by You to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Antidote 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.
The failure of Antidote 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 Antidote 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.
