1. Defined Terms
In these Terms including all of the foregoing portion paragraphs and everything to follow below, the following terms have the following meanings:
2. Acceptance of Terms
By using any of the Services, Content, MYCO Site or MYCO App or registering for an account or clicking a “Sign-In”, “I Accept” or “I Agree” button, you are submitting your acceptance of and agreement to be bound to these Terms (excluding with respect to any particular Services, Content, MYCO Site or MYCO App provided by MYCO under a separate agreement that expressly states that these Terms do not apply). Except as specified herein, without limiting the foregoing, these Terms apply to any use of the Services and Content, including but not limited to (a) submitting Samples for processing and analysis, (b) uploading a digital version of your Biomarkers and interacting with it on a MYCO site or MYCO App, and/or (c) creating and using a MYCO account without providing your Samples or Biomarkers. In addition, when using particular Services or Content or a particular MYCO Site or MYCO App, you agree to be bound by any additional guidelines, restrictions, or rules that may be posted from time to time by MYCO in connection with same. All such additional posted guidelines, restrictions, or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms.
3.1 Subject to Section 3.2, if you are under 19 years of age, you must have the Terms agreed to by both yourself and your parent or legal guardian, before you may make use of the Services, including those Services relating to the collection and testing of Samples. MYCO reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or discontinue the provision to you or use by you of any Services, Content, MYCO Site and/or MYCO App if we become aware or believe that you are under 19 years of age, even if the Terms have been agreed to by both you and your parent or legal guardian.
3.2 You are prohibited from using any of the Services that include submitting your own Samples or Samples on behalf of anyone else, or otherwise providing any information about you or anyone else if you are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the jurisdiction in which you are resident or from which you use the Services.
4. Description of the Services and Our Use of Information
4.1 The Services include access to a MYCO Site and personal health assessment services, including the collection and analysis of your Samples. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, each new feature that augments or enhances the current Service shall be subject to the Terms. You acknowledge and agree that the Services are provided “AS-IS, WITH ALL FAULTS”, unless and except to the extent otherwise required by applicable law, and are based on the biomarker-related research and technology in use by MYCO at the time of the purchase of the Services or viewing of the results (as determined by MYCO at its sole discretion). As research progresses and scientific knowledge and technology evolve, MYCO is regularly innovating in order to improve and advance the experience for its users. You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services which MYCO provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. As part of this continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that MYCO may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing some or all Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally at MYCO’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You may stop using the Services at any time. You do not need to specifically inform MYCO when you stop using the Services unless you are requesting closure of your account. MYCO assumes no responsibility for the use of Services outside of these Terms or other applicable terms to the extent those other applicable terms have been separately and expressly agreed to by MYCO.
4.2 You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining, at your own cost and expense, your own Internet access (or other network access), equipment, hardware, software, network infrastructure, communications systems (including emails, phones, faxes) and any ancillary third-party communications services (collectively “Subscriber System”), needed to access or otherwise use, via the Internet or another form of network, any of the Services or Content or any MYCO Site or MYCO App. You shall be responsible for any changes to the Subscriber System that could affect access to or use of the Services or Content or any MYCO Site or MYCO App. You acknowledge and agree that the Internet (or any other third-party network) is not owned, operated, managed by MYCO or any of its affiliates or suppliers, that it is a separate network of computers independent of MYCO, and that it is used by you are your sole risk and is subject to all applicable local, state, provincial, national and international laws and regulations.
4.3 You acknowledge and agree that while MYCO may not currently have set a fixed upper limit on the number of transmissions you may send or receive through the Services or on the amount of storage space used for the provision of any Service, such fixed upper limits may be set or changed by MYCO at any time, at MYCO’s sole discretion.
4.4 In the course of providing the Services, MYCO will contact you and arrange for you to provide to MYCO the following: your Samples, registration information about you (including your Identifying Information). On receipt of this material, MYCO will conduct molecular profiling analysis using your Samples and other information provided. MYCO will then generate a personalized Health Data report that is linked to your MYID. Your MYID links your Health Data to your Personal Information in an identifiable form for your use and for whomever else you choose to share your Health Data with. Subject to the remainder of this paragraph, MYCO will retain your Biomarker Information in identifiable form so that we can provide or offer further Services in the future. Should you decide you no longer want MYCO Services and provide us with written notification (including to our Privacy Officer) requesting to have your MYCO account closed, MYCO will close your MYCO account, delink your Health Data from your Registration Information and permanently delete your Registration Information, thereby leaving only De-Identified Information with us, along with separately held records of our having provided you with Services as is customary when running a business but which will not be linked to your biomarker data.
4.5 As part one of the Services, MYCO may include on the MYCO Site a list of Third-Party Practitioners from which you may, at your sole election, choose a Third-Party Practitioner to contact for the interpretation of your Biomarker Information. Third-Party Practitioners are independent third parties that do not work for MYCO and do not represent MYCO. Your selection of a Third-Party Practitioner is completely your own decision and your own risk and MYCO takes no responsibility with respect to your interactions with any Third-Party Practitioner or any advice or recommendations that you receive from any Third-Party Practitioner. MYCO may charge a fee for allowing Third-Party Practitioners to be listed on MYCO’s list of Third-Party Practitioners. MYCO may also charge a fee for connecting you with a Third-Party Practitioner. If you choose a Third-Party Practitioner to review or interpret your Biomarker Information or offer advice or recommendations, then you hereby agree and consent to our sharing of your Personal Information (including your Biomarker Information) with the Third-Party Practitioner that you selected. You acknowledge and agree that MYCO has no responsibility or liability for any advice, opinion, recommendation (including any action plan proposing or recommending certain actions or steps meant to modify certain aspects of your lifestyle), or any other information that you receive from Third-Party Practitioners.
4.6 We encourage you to discuss the Samples that you are required to give for purposes of testing, analysis and the generation of the Health Data with the Customer Coordinator to ensure that they do not pose a problem for you.
4.8 You may withdraw your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information (excluding De- Identified Information) at any time by writing to the MYCO Privacy Officer at the address noted above. Withdrawing your consent will mean that MYCO is no longer able to deliver the Services to you and any fees paid by you will be non-refundable and forfeited by you.
4.9 In order to receive the Services, the Customer Coordinator will arrange for the collection of your Samples that will be provided to MYCO for analysis. Your Samples will be used for analysis and profiling. We do not retain Samples once quality assurance is complete unless we notify you differently. You may request the destruction of your Samples before testing is complete by contacting the Privacy Officer at the above address. If you do make such a request, we will be unable to provide you with the Services and any fees paid by you will be non- refundable and forfeited by you. We encourage you to discuss the withdrawal of your Samples with the Customer Coordinator before choosing to withdraw.
4.11 MYCO shall have the right to use De-Identified Information, including with third parties, to carry out the activities set out in Section 4.10 to the same extent as provided for Personal Information, as well as to:
(a) conduct scientific and commercial research and development with the purpose of advancing personal care in human performance and health and improving and furthering the products and services we provide;
(b) conduct surveys and/or research relating to the opinion of customers and potential customers with respect to our Services or of potential new Services that may be offered in the future;
(c) publish or have published observations, analyses, data and/or results in scientific journals or other publications;
(d) advance and implement our commercial business and engage in commercial activity to further our business, including through enhancement and expansion of our Services, systems, software, databases, products and offerings;
(e) engage in research and development that result in the development of commercial products or services; and (f) conduct data analysis in connection with any of the foregoing activities in this Section 4.11 or 4.10.
De-Identified Information may be used, stored, disclosed and otherwise made use of as MYCO considers commercially reasonable at its sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, MYCO may or will use your De-Identified Information to study a specific or general group or population, identify potential areas or targets for therapeutics development, conduct or support the development of drugs, diagnostics or devices to diagnose, predict or treat medical or other health conditions, work with public, private and/or non-profit entities on Biomarker-related research initiatives, or otherwise create, commercialize, and apply this knowledge to improving our understanding of the Biomarker-related field and human-related conditions and factors.
4.12 We may engage other companies and individuals (“Third-Party Service Providers”) and other researchers, investigators, and organizations (“Research Partners”) to carry out some or all of the uses of the Personal Information and/or De-Identified Information referred to in the foregoing paragraphs, and/or to perform some or all of the Services on our behalf. Third-Party Service Providers and Research Partners may require or be provided with access to your Personal Information. We make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that all Third-Party Service Providers and Research Partners acting on our behalf provide a comparable level of protection for your Personal Information to the level of protection that we provide.
5. Risks and Considerations Regarding MYCO Services
5.1 Your relationship with MYCO is commercial. You are a licensee of the Services. You understand and agree that MYCO is engaged in a commercial enterprise. MYCO is not a regulated health services provider. MYCO does not assume any fiduciary or similar obligations to you as a result of you using the Services. MYCO is not a trustee of your Biomarkers or other Personal Information.
5.2 You acknowledge and agree that Biomarker Information that we provide to you does not constitute medical advice; that MYCO does not provide or purport to provide medical advice; and that you are not seeking medical advice in any way from MYCO. You acknowledge and agree that if you wish to receive or need to receive medical advice relating to any Biomarker Information or otherwise, you must consult with a qualified, third-party physician of your choosing. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any associated costs involved in seeking or obtaining such medical advice.
5.3 The Services and information provided to you by MYCO, including all Biomarkers, any Health Data, Action Plan and any information provided in our materials or on the MYCO Site, are for research, informational, and educational purposes only and do not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, and should not be considered a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Further, many or all of the Biomarker observations or discoveries that we report, whether via a Health Data or otherwise, have not been clinically validated. The technology we use is generally the same technology used by the research community. To date much of this technology has not been widely used for clinical testing. The Services and information provided by MYCO are not intended to be used by you for any diagnostic purpose and are not a substitute for professional medical advice. You should always seek the advice of a Physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you may have regarding diagnosis, treatment, mitigation, prevention or possible cure of any disease or other medical condition or impairment or the status of your health.
5.4 Regardless of information contained in, related to, or given in association with our Services or any Biomarker Information that we provide you with, you should seek the advice of a Physician or other qualified health care provider if you have questions regarding any medical condition, or if you are experiencing any symptoms you believe to be a medical condition. You should not ignore third-party professional medical advice (e.g. from a Physician) or delay in seeking it because of any information provided in connection with our Services or any Biomarker Information that we provide you with. You should not interpret any information provided to you in connection with the Services as recommending any specific treatment plan, product or course of action related to a treatment for a medical condition. Always consult a Physician or other qualified health care provider before starting any new treatment or stopping any treatment that has been prescribed for you by a Physician or other qualified health care provider.
5.5 Many genetic tests and other biomarker-related or health marker-related tests do not give a definitive answer regarding whether an individual will develop a given condition and may only provide information about the risk or probability of developing a disease. Medical interpretation of these results is often complex and requires additional patient-specific information, such as prior medical and family history and other factors. We encourage you to talk to a Physician or other qualified health care provider with special training in interpreting biomarker-related or health marker-related test results, prior to collecting your sample for testing to learn more so you can decide whether testing is right for you.
5.6 Once you obtain your Biomarkers, the knowledge is irrevocable. You should not assume that any information we may be able to provide to you, whether now or as biomarker or health marker research advances, will be welcome or positive. You should also understand that as research advances, in order for you to assess the meaning of your Health Marker results in the context of such advances, you may need to obtain further services from a Physician or other qualified health care provider trained to interpret biomarker-related test results.
5.7 In general, some people feel a little anxious about getting biomarker-related test results. This is normal. If you feel very anxious, you should speak to a Physician or other qualified health care provider prior to collecting your Samples for testing.
5.8 You may learn information about yourself that you do not anticipate from the Services or Biomarkers. This information may evoke strong emotions and has the potential to alter your life and worldview. You may discover things about yourself that trouble you and that you may not have the ability to control or change (e.g., you have a higher than average chance of developing a specific condition or disease). These outcomes could have social, legal, or economic implications.
5.9 MYCO may use a third-party laboratory or its own laboratory to process your Samples (each a “laboratory”) so that MYCO may then generate Health Data and other Biomarkers. The laboratory may not be able to process your Samples, and the laboratory process may result in errors. The laboratory may not be able to process your Samples if your Samples are compromised during processing or shipping or the results from processing do not meet our standards for accuracy. If the initial processing fails for any of these reasons, MYCO will reprocess the same sample at no charge to the customer. If the second attempt to process the same sample fails, MYCO will offer to arrange a second collection at no charge. Even for processing that meets our high standards, a generally small, unknown fraction of the data generated during the laboratory process may be un-interpretable or incorrect. Customers will not receive refunds if these errors occur.
5.10 Biomarkers that you receive from MYCO are not meant to be acted upon without proper advice from a Physician or other qualified health care provider. Thus, you must make sure you consult with a Physician or other qualified health care provider before altering any of your lifestyle or behaviors (health-related or otherwise) in response to any Biomarkers that you receive from MYCO. You should not change your lifestyle or behaviors (health-related or otherwise) solely on the basis of Biomarker Information or any other information from MYCO. MYCO does not provide diagnosis services nor will MYCO offer any medical advice.
5.11 MYCO will provide your Biomarker Information to the Third-Party Practitioner that you select at your choosing. That Third-Party Practitioner does not work for MYCO and will only review your Biomarker Information and provide a summary of the interpretations to you to the extent you consult with that Third-Party Practitioner at your own choosing. You are advised to arrange through your personal physician for any observations or findings in your Biomarker Information to be validated through other testing before decisions are made regarding medical interventions or any other steps are taken of any kind in response to the Biomarker Information. You are entirely responsible for seeking and obtaining such tests and clinical follow up of any findings, including associated costs.
5.12 If your Health Data or other Biomarkers (“your data”) indicate that you are not at elevated risk for a particular disease or condition, you should not feel that you are protected. The opposite is also true; if your data indicate you are at an elevated risk for a particular disease or condition, it does not mean you will definitively develop the disease or condition. In either case, if you have concerns or questions about what you learn through MYCO, you should contact a Physician or other qualified health care provider.
5.13 Health marker research is not comprehensive and is still in the early stages of development. While we measure many hundreds of thousands of data points, many are not fully validated as being associated with particular health conditions. The research community is rapidly learning more about Biomarkers, and an important mission of MYCO is to conduct and contribute to this research. In addition, many ethnic groups are not included in Health marker studies, which can create additional challenges. Because interpretations provided in our service rely on these published studies, some interpretations may not apply to you. Future scientific research may change the interpretation of your Biomarkers. In the future, the scientific community may show previous research to be incomplete or inaccurate.
5.14 Biomarkers that you share with others could be used against your interests. For example, Biomarkers that you choose to share with a Physician or other Third-Party Practitioner may become part of your medical record and those medical records could potentially become accessible to third parties. Biomarkers that you share with family, friends or employers may also be used against your interests. Even if you share Biomarkers that have no or limited meaning today, that information could have greater meaning in the future as new discoveries are made. As a result, you should be careful about sharing your Biomarker Information with others. You may want to consult a lawyer to understand the extent of legal protection of your Biomarker Information before you share it with anybody.
5.15 MYCO does not endorse, represent, warrant or guarantee the effectiveness of any specific course of action, resources, tests, Physician or other Third-Party Practitioner, drugs, biologics, medical devices or other products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on our MYCO Site, any MYCO App or contained in any Biomarkers provided to you. Use of or reliance on any information provided by or on behalf of MYCO is solely at your own risk.
5.16 Biomarkers that you receive from MYCO is intended for informational purposes only and for discussion with a Third-Party Practitioner. MYCO believes that (a) any Biomarker-related information (including any Biomarkers that we provide to you) is only part of the picture of any individual’s state of being; (b) the state of the understanding of biomarker or health marker information is still in its infancy and evolving and at any given time we only comprehend part of the picture of the role of biomarker or health marker information; (c) only a Physician or other qualified health care provider (if any) can provide medical advice and proper medical diagnosis; and (d) apart from providing a medical diagnosis or medical advice, only a trained Third-Party Practitioner can assess your current state of health and the potential for health risks or disease, taking into account many factors, including your current health condition, lifestyle, behaviors, environmental conditions, any symptoms you may be experiencing (if any) and in certain cases certain Biomarker-related information, amongst other conditions and factors.
