1. Description of Service

Symple is an application ("App") whereby you can track symptoms and other factors of chronic conditions and general health.  You understand and agree that the App is provided "AS-IS" and that Symple Health Inc. assumes no responsibility for the use of the App. Symple Health Inc. is constantly innovating and seeks to provide the best possible experience for its users. You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the App which Symple Health Inc. provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. You may stop using the App at any time. By using this App, you acknowledge that Symple Health Inc. does not control in any manner the nature, quality, or accuracy of user-generated content, such as data saved and interpretations made. You agree that Symple is a neutral engine for people to record their symptoms’ severities and potential, correlating factors, journal entries, photos, and other information pertaining to health and wellbeing. 

2. Eligibility
The App may not be used by minors (those under 18 years of age, or otherwise under applicable law), or by other individuals or organizations who cannot form legally binding contracts under applicable law. If you do not qualify, please do not use the App or the Site. By downloading and using Symple, you represent that you are age 18 or older. 

3.  Symple Does Not Provide Medical Advice
Any information published by Symple Health, Inc., including text, graphics, images, symptoms, treatments, dosages, outcomes, charts, profiles, photographs, advice, comments, messages, and other information, is for informational, research and educational purposes only. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. It is not intended to be used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any condition or disease.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 (emergency health access) immediately. Symple Health, Inc. does not recommend or endorse any specific course of action, tests, resources, physicians, products, procedures, drugs, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned in relation to the App, as reviewed in the App Store, on the Symple Facebook, Twitter, Website, or elsewhere. Reliance on any information provided by Symple or Symple Health, Inc., on data compiled on the App, the website, or on other users’ experience with the App or website is solely at your own risk. 

4. Code of Conduct and Lawful Use of the App
You understand that you are entirely responsible for all information or other content that you upload, post, email, or otherwise transmit, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted. You agree not to post or upload anything to the Symple App Web Site or App Store page that is inaccurate, false or misleading; is obscene, abusive or indecent; or that infringes any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of any party. You also agree to not impersonate another person or medical profession; to not harass, threaten or stalk another participant, including the use of expressions of bigotry, racism, hatred, or profanity; and to not use the App to conduct any illegal activity or any activity that violates the rights of others, provides instructional information about illegal activities, or promotes harm to anyone. 

5. Privacy
Symple does not sell and will not transmit any personally identifiable information about you to third parties. However, you may still feel uncomfortable storing health information to a connected device. Therefore, you should consider the safety and privacy of your data before using the App generally, and utilizing the export feature of the App specifically. You should refrain from sharing or exporting data unless you are certain that the receiving email address is authorized, credible, and secure.  You should understand that anyone can access your data if your smartphone is outside of your immediate control, and view the data entered into the app, if proper measures have not been taken to secure your smartphone.

If you are reading this Terms of Service Agreement because you are concerned about the privacy of your data on your smartphone, we urge you to recognize and fulfill your responsibility to protect the privacy of your data by keeping your smartphone secure at all times and using all means possible to secure your data. In using the App, you are free to define any data fields in any language that makes you feel comfortable. You may easily edit symptom names (to obscure their meaning) without changing the associated, historical data. However, the relevant International Classification of Disease (ICD 10) codes will remain. To circumvent the application of ICD-10 codes, please create and use custom symptoms, a feature that is available to all end users at all times.

The App is not networked, meaning that the data remains on your smartphone at all times, unless and until you export it.  Should you export your data, please consider that the person with whom you shared it may or may not share it more broadly, with or without your permission or knowledge. Therefore, shared data should be considered data that has been made available to the public domain, so please use due caution before sharing your data. 

Data can only be exported at your command. When exporting data, you acknowledge that your data is NOT email-deidentified and should therefore be considered data for public use.

You are free to stop using the App at any time. If you choose to stop using the App, simply delete Symple from your smartphone. Doing so will irretrievably delete all Symple data from your device EXCEPT photos that were taken using the App which will persist in your smartphone's image storage utility, AND Apple Health data if you should choose to keep it. Finally, any data files that were shared will also persist until they too are deleted. 

You should be aware that Symple Health, Inc. may collect information regarding the use of the App and may cause the App to communicate to Symple Health, Inc. information about its operations even if you are not connected to the internet or a mobile service.

Symple Health, Inc., collects non-personal information if you are using our App. We use Flurry Analytics, Crashlytics/Fabric, and Google Analytics to report crashes, usage, device and operating system data, and generalized location (by country/metropolitan area). In the event of a crash, we will receive information about the device model, operating system, and carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of  Symple. This information is sent to us in an aggregated, de-identified manner and is not traceable to an individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.

Symple Health, Inc. is the sole owner of all such information it collects. Symple Health, Inc. uses industry-standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to store the non-public information entered into the App in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security. We cannot and do not guarantee that our security measures will prevent third party "hackers" from illegally accessing our site or App and obtaining access to content or information thereon.


6. Changes and Limits to Service
Symple Health Inc. reserves the right to modify the App (or any part or functionality thereof) with or without notice.  You agree that Symple Health Inc. has no responsibility or liability for any deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or transmitted by the App. You also agree that Symple Health Inc. reserves the right to change these limits at any time.
