THIRD PARTY LINKS OR CONENT
8. NO MEDICAL INFORMATION
8.1 You may use the App at your own risk. The content on the App is provided for general information only and does not constitute any medical advice or diagnosis on which you should rely. The information on the App cannot not be construed as counselling or a recommendation, and cannot serve as the basis for any decision or action. Any medical information on the App or on IPOPI’s website or other materials cannot replace the detailed medical advice tailored to your needs. Nothing on the App can be construed as intending to replace the advice or diagnosis of a healthcare professional. You are advised to seek help from a competent healthcare professional for any questions regarding your medical condition.
8.2 This App is intended to help you organize and manage any information regarding your health. It is not intended for any specific medical purposes such as the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, prediction, prognosis, treatment or alleviation of any disease and can thus not be regarded as a medical device. The App is not designed, nor can it be construed and/or interpreted in any way as a tool to solve medical problems and/or health-related emergencies. Therefore, you have to manage your health and/or any emergencies by referring exclusively to suitable healthcare professionals.
8.3 This App is an auxiliary tool designed to improve the management of medical treatments, but should not be conceived as a primary use tool. Therefore, IPOPI invites you to resort to other traditional devices and measures to manage and monitor medicine intake. The normal functionality of the App depends on many factors, including the proper functioning of the device (e.g. smartphones, tablets) on which you install the App, the operating system of the same device, the simultaneous presence of any other software existing and installed on the device, the internet connection as well as other pre-requisites outside the control of IPOPI. You should therefore make sure that you do not depend solely on this App for the management of your health.
8.4 All information about you or your health status as well as the use of medicinal products (such as, but not limited to, type, posology, time of taking of the medicinal product), are entered into the App directly and exclusively by the user. You acknowledge that the correct functioning and use of the App, including the notification service for drug management and the generation of information reports, is indispensably dependent on the accuracy, precision and correctness of the information inserted by you.
9. LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION
9.1 TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE APP IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND YOUR USE OF THE APP IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. IPOPI EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. This includes, without limitation, that we do not warrant (express or implied) that the App is free from errors, defects, viruses, or harmful components.
9.3 You agree to indemnify, defend and hold IPOPI, its respective officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against any and all third-party claims, liabilities, lawsuits, governmental action, or losses suffered or incurred (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising out of or as a result of your use of the App including without limitation your violation of these T&C or any applicable law or regulation.
9.4 IPOPI, through the App, provides you with a tool which allows you to access various functionalities including but not limited to, messages, text, graphics, software, photos, videos, data and other material, but the App and its content are in no way qualified and/or to be interpreted as an official certification on the use and requirements of medicinal products or medical devices that can replace any medical advice. You should always contact a healthcare professional, the pharmaceutical industry and/or other suitable professionals if you need medical advice. IPOPI does not prescribe nor dispense treatment or therapies. Information about a medicinal product or medical device or reminder notices of a medicinal product cannot be qualified and/or interpreted as a recommendation and/or approval by IPOPI of this medicinal product or medical device and/or on the timing and method of taking it, which are independently set you. All content posted by IPOPI and made available is intended for general information purposes only. You should always seek advice from your treating physician for any personal health and/or medical claim, and in any case before commencing or interrupting any treatment. You should never overlook or delay a visit to or seeking advice from a healthcare professional because of information received or obtained through the use of the App. In the event of a medical emergency, you should immediately call the emergency number. In the event of adverse incidents and/or the onset of any side effect, you must contact your treating healthcare professional and it is your exclusive responsibility to report such (suspected) adverse events to any other interested parties (e.g. the pharmaceutical company or any regulatory authority in accordance with applicable pharmacovigilance laws and requirements).
9.5 IPOPI has no obligation to provide technical support for the installation and/or maintenance of the App. At any time and for any reason, without prior notice or liability, IPOPI may modify or terminate the service or any part of it or impose any restrictions on the use or access to the App.
