PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES. This is a legally binding agreement between you, the individual user (“you” and “your”), and Ellipsis Health Inc., and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Ellipsis,” “we,” “us” and “our”), regarding your access to and use of our website (www.ellipsishealth.com/), any of our mobile applications, our software as a service or other technology platform(s), or any of our related websites, applications, or services (including any associated content, and any customizations made to those websites, platforms, and applications) (collectively, the “Site”), or access or use of the services accessible through the Site (collectively, the “Services”). Your use of the Site and/or Services means that you have read, understand, and agree to these Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”).

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THESE TERMS OF USE, THEN YOU MUST NOT USE OR MUST STOP USING THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES IMMEDIATELY. 

 

This document provides the general Terms of Use that apply to our Site and Services. Each of our applications, platforms, and services might have more specific terms you must agree to in order to use them. Those application-, platform-, and service-specific terms are incorporated into these Terms of Use by reference.

 

These Terms of Use cover the following:

Ellipsis Health Services


Ellipsis uses Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) to solve the unmet needs of behavioral health. We offer a real-time, scalable, and accurate way to measure anxiety and depression. We have developed the first speech-based vital sign for depression and anxiety. Our machine-learning algorithms only require a few minutes of natural speech to create a real-time assessment of anxiety and depression. We offer our AI solutions to adults (18 years of age or older) only. We partner with health care providers and health plans to provide our AI solutions to their patients, clients and members. We may also offer these AI solutions directly to individual users in our sole discretion.  

If you are a health care provider, health plan employee, or other person or entity in the health care or medical industries who wishes to use our Services, you must enter into a separate services agreement with us. To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms of Use and the separate services agreement, the services agreement shall govern to the extent necessary to resolve the conflict.

WE DO NOT PROVIDE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH, MEDICAL HEALTH OR REFERRAL SERVICES. Health care providers (including behavioral health specialists) may use the Site and/or Services to share content with you and to collect information from you to be used for your treatment, care coordination or case management. However, your use of the Site or Services is not a substitute for medical or mental health care. If you need medical or mental health care, reach out to your doctor for a referral. If you are having a medical emergency or mental health crisis, call 911. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255. 

No professional patient-relationship is created between you and us when you use the Site, Services or content. This is true whether such content is provided by or through the use of the Site or Services or through any other communications from us. Please see the section of these Terms of Use on USER COMMUNICATIONS for more details on how we may communicate with you. 

We encourage health care providers, health plans and our other customers to use our Site and Services responsibly, but we have no control over of them or their actions. We are not responsible and will not be liable for your treatment or services you receive from these third parties, or any injury or loss resulting therefrom.
