IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES.
These Terms only relate to the relationship between SecureVideo and you, and do not extend to create or govern any relationship between your clients or patients and SecureVideo. Your relationship with users with whom you interact and participate in sessions with using the Services (including your patients and clients) is directly between you and those patients and clients. The patients and clients will never have a physician-patient relationship with SecureVideo. SecureVideo does not practice medicine or any other similar or equivalent licensed profession and offers no medical or other equivalent professional services. Customer is solely responsible for all interactions with patients, clients and other consumers via the Services.

- ENTIRE AGREEMENT. These Terms constitutes Customer’s entire agreement with SecureVideo, a California corporation, regarding the Services and these Terms supersede all prior agreements, discussions or writings between the parties regarding the subject matter of these Terms. The sole exception to this would be where a valid written, fully executed, non-terminated service agreement exists between Customer and SecureVideo (a “Written Agreement”) in respect of the Services, in which case if a provision in these Terms conflicts with any provision of the Written Agreement, the provision of the Written Agreement will control to the extent of the conflict. Subject to its terms, these Terms will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
- CHANGES TO TERMS. SecureVideo may, in our sole discretion, update these Terms from time to time. If we do, we will post updated Terms on the Site and/or may notify you through other communications. Your continued access and use of the Services constitute your acceptance of the then-current Terms. If you do not agree with any modifications to the Terms, your only recourse is to discontinue your use of the Services. Upon changes to these Terms, Customer administrator account holders will be taken to a screen where they can review and accept the new Terms.
- YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES. You are solely responsible for the security of your username and password and the username and password of any authorized user designated to access and use your Services account. This means that you accept full liability and responsibility for your actions and the actions of any of those authorized users who may use the Services via your account with or without permission. Customer agrees to immediately notify us if you have any reason to believe that your or any of your authorized users’ usernames or passwords have been lost, compromised, or misused in any way. SecureVideo reserves the right to revoke or deactivate a username or password at any time. You are responsible for using the Services in accordance with these Terms and in the manner specified by SecureVideo in its Support Center documentation. In providing the Services, SecureVideo will be sending temporary account passwords and session invitations via email over the Internet. You understand that Internet email is not a secure transmission medium, and that third parties may be able to intercept, access, use or corrupt any information that you transmit over the Internet. You acknowledge and understand that all Protected Health Information (“PHI”), as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), will be safeguarded by SecureVideo in such a way as to comply with the requirements of HIPAA, including but not limited to strong encryption of PHI, audibility of changes to PHI, and implementation of security best efforts to safeguard PHI.
