BY ENTERING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND HAVE TAKEN TIME TO CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS IMPORTANT DECISION.
Lisa Health is not engaged in the practice of medicine.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, please call your doctor or 911 immediately.
Lisa Health is not a Medical Doctor and does not engage in the practice of medicine. It is critical that you understand that our Services do not give medical advice. We do not engage in diagnosis or treatment of medical conditions. The Services are provided for educational and information purposes only.
We reference, analyze, and aggregate peer-reviewed scientific studies to create models that can help you make more informed decisions about your menopause and midlife health journeys, but we do not make these decisions for you. Every individual is different, and you should consult your physician in the event of any serious medical issues. Please do not ask Lisa Health for — or rely on — anything we communicate as medical advice. Although our apps, website, images, content, and communications may reference medical topics, we make no warranty whatsoever that any of the articles are accurate, up to date, or error-free. Even if a statement we make is accurate, it may not apply to you or your specific symptoms.
We have the right to cancel our service, in our discretion for any reason or for no reason. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you specifically acknowledge that Lisa Health has the right to terminate or suspend your account in the event that we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have violated these Terms, including participating in any activities that adversely affect other users’ experiences.
Lisa Health reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these Terms at any time with or without specific notice to you other than through posting such modified Terms on our website, through our applications, or both. The Terms will include the most recent date of revision and will be effective immediately upon posting unless otherwise specified herein. In the event of a material change to these Terms, we will attempt to notify you directly through a message sent to the e-mail address you provided upon registration or through the use of a notification in or through the application. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you will review these Terms periodically for any changes and review the date of last revision at the beginning of the Terms.

By agreeing to the Terms, you agree that you are required to resolve any claim that you may have against Lisa Health on an individual basis in arbitration, as set forth in this Arbitration Agreement. This will preclude you from bringing any class, collective, or representative action against Lisa Health, and also preclude you from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against Lisa Health by someone else.
You and Lisa Health agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or (b) your access to or use of the Services at any time, whether before or after the date you agreed to the Terms, will be settled by binding arbitration between you and Lisa Health, and not in a court of law.
You acknowledge and agree that you and Lisa Health are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Unless both you and Lisa Health otherwise agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. However, you and Lisa Health each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
The parties agree that the arbitrator (“Arbitrator”), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of California.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration – Consumer Arbitration Rules at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879). The Arbitrator will be either (1) a retired judge or (2) an attorney specifically licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an Arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the Arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Unless you and Lisa Health otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Lisa Health submit to the Arbitrator, unless you request a hearing, or the Arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the Arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The Arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorney’s’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Lisa Health will not seek, and hereby waives all rights Lisa Health may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if Lisa Health prevails in arbitration.
It is your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Lisa Health will pay all such fees, unless the Arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the above, regarding consent to be bound by amendments to these Terms, if Lisa Health changes this Arbitration Agreement after the date you first agreed to the Terms (or to any subsequent changes to the Terms), you may reject any such change by providing Lisa Health written notice of such rejection within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Effective” date above. This written notice must be provided either (a) by mail or hand delivery to our registered agent for service of process, c/o Lisa Health, Inc. (the name and current contact information for the registered agent in each state are available online here), or (b) by email from the email address associated with your Account to: email@example.com. In order to be effective, the notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this Arbitration Agreement. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and Lisa Health in accordance with the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first agreed to the Terms (or to any subsequent changes to the Terms).
These Terms were last updated on October 9, 2018.
