The Kinhub website, located at www.kinhub.com (our “Website”), and other products and services we provide (collectively, the “Services”), are owned and operated by Optimum Health Limited (d.b.a. Kinhub) (“Kinhub”, “we”, “us”, “ours”). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 11998059 and have our registered office at 7 Bell Yard, London, England, WC2A 2JR. In these Terms and Conditions, the terms “you” and “yours” refer to the person using the Service.
These Terms and Conditions (together with the other documents referred to below) set out the terms on which you may use our Services. You should read these Terms and Conditions carefully before accessing our Services, as by using our Services you are confirming that you (i) have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, (ii) you are of legal age to form a binding contract, and (iii) that you will abide by these Terms and Conditions and all applicable laws and regulations when using our Services.
If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions you should stop using our Services immediately.
DO NOT USE OUR SERVICES FOR MEDICAL OR ANY OTHER EMERGENCIES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
OUR SERVICES DO NOT REPLACE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ANY PRACTITIONER OR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL, AND KINHUB, ITSELF, DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL OR HEALTH ADVICE, CARE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT.
YOU SHOULD SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION FOR ANYONE WHO IS UNCONSCIOUS, NOT BREATHING OR GASPING FOR AIR, EXPERIENCING AN ALLERGIC REACTION, HAVING CHEST PAIN, EXPERIENCING UNCONTROLLABLE BLEEDING OR ANY OTHER SYMPTOMS THAT REQUIRE IMMEDIATE OR EMERGENCY MEDICAL ATTENTION.
As part of our Services, we provide access to third-party health and wellbeing professionals (each, a “Consultant”) and products (each, a “Product”) to support users through various life transitions including pregnancy, parenthood, and professional life. Consultants may provide information and support through chat services, telephone calls and online video calls (each, a “Session”). We also support users and provide information through the Kinhub chatbot function available on the Kinhub Website.
The scope of the information and support provided by Consultants, on our Website or otherwise through our Services (including through the Kinhub chatbot) is non-medical. Kinhub does not endorse or recommend any specific tests, providers, products, procedures, medications, devices, opinions, diagnoses, or other information that may be provided or mentioned by any Consultant. We encourage you to consult with your healthcare provider before using our Services or engaging any Consultant. Our Services are not a substitute for a primary care physician, obstetrician, paediatrician or any other medical service.
While we endeavour to provide you with access to Consultants who will be helpful to you, we make no representation or warranty as to whether you will find any Consultants services relevant, useful, correct, satisfactory or suitable to your needs.
We do not practice medicine or any other licensed profession, and do not interfere with the practice of medicine or any other licensed profession of Consultants, each of whom is responsible for his or her services and compliance with the requirements applicable to his or her profession and license. Kinhub shall not be liable for any information, support or advice you obtain from a Consultant via our Services.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE
It is important to understand that the Services do not include the provision of medical care by Kinhub. Kinhub is not a licensed medical care provider, and Kinhub does not act in a health care professional capacity. You should not change your treatment or care plan, medication or therapy based on information you received through the Services or from any Consultants. Consultation with the Consultants made available via the Services is supplemental to any treatment or care provided by your health care provider and should not replace regular medical visits with your health care provider. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care practitioner regarding your medical condition or the use (or frequency) of any medication or medical device. Information provided by the Consultants made available via the Services is offered for informational purposes only and is not a recommendation or endorsement of any drug, device or treatment or representation that a particular drug, device or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you. Questions regarding any drug, medical device or treatment should be directed to your healthcare provider. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read in connection with our services. Always consult with your healthcare professional if you have any questions or concerns about your health or condition or experience any changes in your condition or health status. Consultants do not provide emergency services.
