Terms of Service for the WEGO Health Experts platform have been updated effective July 12, 2017, and the new Terms of Service can be reviewed here: Experts Terms of Service. These new WEGO Health Experts Terms of Service are in full effect and by using the WEGO Health Experts platform you agree to these new Terms of Service.

Last Updated November 15, 2016

WG Health Enterprises, Inc., which does business under the name “WEGO Health,” is delighted that you have decided to become involved with WEGO Health. For purposes of this Agreement, “you”, “yourself” or “your” means the person who participates in any Program (as defined below) offered by WEGO Health, who accesses any part of the WEGO Health Website (as defined below), or both. By using the WEGO Health Website or any other websites under the control of WEGO Health, whether partial or otherwise, (collectively, the “WEGO Health Website” or “Site”), you accept, and agree to be bound by, this Terms of Service Agreement (the “Agreement” or these “Terms of Service”).

The WEGO Health Website and Programs are operated by WEGO Health Enterprises, Inc. (“WEGO Health” or the “Company”). This Agreement sets out the legally binding terms of your use of the WEGO Health Website and your participation in WEGO Health Programs. This Agreement applies to all interactions you have with WEGO Health, including any that occurred before the date on which this Agreement was first posted on the WEGO Health Website. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, at any time, for any reason whatsoever, with or without notice, to terminate, suspend or modify all or any part of any Program or this Agreement. Such modifications will be effective upon posting by WEGO Health on the WEGO Health Website. This Agreement includes WEGO Health’s Privacy Policy (as defined below), and any notices regarding the WEGO Health Website.

WEGO Health will post changes to these Terms of Service on the Site and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. It is your responsibility to check the Terms of Service periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Site after the date any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new or revised Terms of Service.

  1. Authorized Use of Site. The WEGO Health Website provides information about health care and health care advocacy. It also offers services to both users requesting services to be performed (each, a “Client”, and such services, the “Engagement”) and users interested in providing such services (each, an “Expert”). Under this Agreement, WEGO Health provides services to you in your capacity as either a Client or an Expert. Our services include curating Clients and Experts, facilitating the formation of agreements between Clients and Experts and managing disputes related to those agreements. Clients post jobs and invite Experts to apply. Experts, in turn, post profiles and bid on Engagements. If a Client and Expert agree on terms, an agreement is formed directly between such Client and Expert subject to the provisions set forth in this Terms of Service. WEGO Health collects payment from Clients in connection with their acceptance of an Expert bid through the WEGO Health platform. WEGO Health then pays Experts on behalf of Clients in connection with their delivery of services through the Site once the Engagement is accepted by the Client.

You agree to not do the following when you post a service request or transmit information on the Site:

  • Post requests for services that are fake, post without the intention to hire or complete the service, or post only to receive pricing information.
  • Post any requests, submit any proposal, or otherwise use the Site to transmit any content or conduct any transaction that would violate any applicable law or regulation in the United States or any other country.
  • Post any requests for free services.
  • Post any requests, proposals or content that infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights, license rights, the terms of service or use of such third party’s website, the copyrighted materials or such third party or the rights of publicity or privacy of such third party.

You hereby indemnify and save harmless WEGO Health from any liability for any taxes, penalties or interest that may be assessed by any taxing authority with respect to compensation received by you from WEGO Health.
  12. Code of Conduct. WEGO Health requires that you abide by the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising (http://www.ftc.gov/os/2009/10/091005revisedendorsementguides.pdf) (“FTC Endorsement Guides”). WEGO Health believes in full transparency and in full, fair and effective disclosures of material facts relating to your relationship with WEGO Health and its Sponsors. Per the FTC’s Endorsement Guides, if you are receiving free products, services, payment or other in-kind compensation in exchange for your participation in a Program or in return for promoting a Sponsor or its products/services, you must disclose your connection to WEGO Health and/or its Sponsor. This disclosure should appear in close proximity to any statements you make about Sponsor’s products or services or the Sponsor in general.
  13. User Disputes. You are solely responsible for your interactions with others who are involved with WEGO Health. WEGO Health reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and others.
  14. WEGO Health’s Liability. WEGO Health is only a venue and WEGO Health does not screen or censor information on its website. The site, and all server and network components, are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without any warranties of any kind, and WEGO Health expressly disclaims all other representations and warranties, including any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement, and any representations or warranties arising from course of dealing, course of performance or usage of trade. You acknowledge that WEGO Health does not warrant that your access or use of the site will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, error-free or virus-free, and WEGO Health does not make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from use of the Site or the WEGO Health Content, and no information, advice or services obtained by you from WEGO Health or through the Site will create any warranty not expressly stated in these Terms of Service.

Because authentication on the Internet is difficult, WEGO Health cannot and does not confirm that any user of the Site is who that user claims to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in dealings which users of the Site have with each other, or control the behavior of participants on any WEGO Health Website, in the event that you have a dispute which relates in any way to the WEGO Health Website, you release WEGO Health (and our agents and employees) from all claims, demands and damages (actual or consequential, direct or indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account information. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur with respect to your account.

  1. Exclusion of Damages and Limitation of Liability. In no event will WEGO Health be liable to you for any incidental, consequential, indirect, special, punitive or exemplary damages (including damages for loss of business, loss of profits or the like) arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, including without limitation, your use or inability to use the Site, services, WEGO Health Content, proprietary information, or any interruption or disruption of such use, even if WEGO Health has been advised of the possibility of such damages and regardless of the cause of action (whether in contract, tort, breach of warranty or otherwise). The aggregate liability of WEGO Health with regard to these Terms of Service will in no event exceed US $1.00.
  2. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution; Jury Waiver. These Terms of Service are made under, and will be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts applicable to agreements made and to be performed solely therein, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. In any action between or among any of the parties, whether arising out of these Terms of Service or otherwise, each of the parties irrevocably and unconditionally (a) consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts; and (b) waives any and all right to trial by jury in any legal proceeding arising out of or related to this agreement or any transactions contemplated hereby.
  3. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, hold harmless and defend WEGO Health, its Sponsors, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, stockholders, agents, partners, and their respective successors and assigns against any and all claims, counterclaims, suits, demands, actions, causes of action, damages, setoffs, liens, attachments, debts, expenses, judgments, losses or other liabilities of whatever kind or nature as they are incurred or threatened (including but not limited to cost of defense, settlement, and reasonable attorneys’ fees), arising from or out of or in connection with the following:
  4. a breach by you of this Agreement or any obligation or covenant in this Agreement, including your representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement;
  5. a violation of any law, rule, regulation, or authority by you in connection with the performance of this Agreement, your use of the Site or your involvement in a Program; or
  6. any negligent, reckless or intentional acts or omissions committed by you in connection with the entry into or performance of this Agreement, your use of the Site or your involvement in a Program.
  7. Legal Compliance. You agree to comply with all federal, state, local and foreign laws, rules, regulations and court orders that are applicable to your use of the WEGO Health Website or any Program and not to use the WEGO Health Website or any Program for any purpose that is contrary to any such laws, rules, regulations or orders.
  8. Miscellaneous. These Terms of Service, and any additions, changes, edits and/or modifications made thereto by WEGO Health, together with WEGO Health’s Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to matters described in this Agreement. Access to certain password-restricted portions of the Site is also subject to additional agreement(s). These Terms of Service and any additions, changes, edits and/or modifications made thereto by WEGO Health cannot be amended except by WEGO Health as set forth above. The failure of WEGO Health to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not be a waiver of that right. Any notices to WEGO Health in connection with this agreement will be made by nationally recognized carrier to WEGO Health, 50 Milk Street, 16th Floor, Boston, MA 02109, Attn: Legal Administration. In the event that any provision of these Terms of Service will be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be first revised to give the maximum permissible effect to its original intent or, if such revision is not permitted, that specific provision will be eliminated so that these Terms of Service will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

Exhibit A to WEGO Health Terms of Service Agreement

Privacy Policy of WEGO Health

This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect about you and about your use of WEGO Health and its services. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy applies to all Web sites owned and operated by WEGO Health that are, including without limitation WEGO Health.com, WEGOHealth.tv and including the mobile optimized versions of these sites (we refer to these sites collectively as the “WEGO Health Web Sites”). Except where noted, statements in this Privacy Policy with respect to the WEGO Health Web Sites also apply to the WEGO Health Mobile Device Application (or “App”) for the iPhone, the iPad and mobile devices operating with the Android operating system.

References to “WEGO Health” mean WG Health Enterprises, Inc., doing business as WEGO Health including any company that WEGO Health controls (for example, a subsidiary that WEGO Health owns). WEGO Health may share information among its subsidiaries or web sites that it owns or controls, but information collected under this Privacy Policy is always protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected About You

Personal Information

If you choose to register or update an existing member profile with WEGO Health or access certain functionality on the WEGO Health Web Sites, you may be required to submit Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information that we can use to identify or contact you, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address. Some of our interactive tools and services may request you to submit health information, which would also be considered Personal Information. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personal Information that you submit to WEGO Health. Inaccurate information will affect your experience when using the WEGO Health Web Sites and tools and our ability to contact you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Registration

Access to some WEGO Health interactive tools and services may be limited to users who have registered. Some of our tools (such as certain quizzes or calculators) do not retain your Personal Information, while others store your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the authorization you provide at the time you submit Personal Information in order to use the tool.

Newsletters and Emails to You

At registration and at various times as you use the WEGO Health Web Sites, you will be given the option of providing us with Personal Information in order to receive recurring informational/promotional newsletters – such as a newsletter relating to a specific health condition – via email from WEGO Health and/or directly from third parties. When you sign up for our email newsletters or at any time, you can choose to opt out of receiving additional promotional newsletters from WEGO Health or our Sponsors. You can unsubscribe from a newsletter by following the directions included at the bottom of the newsletter.

Market Research

From time to time, WEGO Health may conduct online research surveys through email invitations, pop-up surveys and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may ask you to enter Personal Information. The Personal Information you submit in a survey may be used by WEGO Health for research and measurement purposes, as described below, including to measure the effectiveness of content, advertising or programs. When our market research surveys collect Personal Information we will not knowingly accept participants who are under the age of 13. Market research surveys conducted by or on behalf of WEGO Health will contain a link to this Privacy Policy.

Blogs, Comments and Other Public Forums

WEGO Health features community areas, comment areas and other public forums where users can contribute information and support one another or where users can post questions for experts to answer. Our communities are open to the public and should not be considered private.

Any information (including Personal Information) you share in any online community area including comments or online discussion is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any Personal Information in any public forum. What you post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.

If you mistakenly post Personal Information in our community areas and would like it removed, you can send us an email to request that we remove it by using the Contact Us link on every page of the WEGO Health Web Sites. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information.

Emails You Send to WEGO Health

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information, content, business information, ideas, concepts or inventions that you send to WEGO Health by email. If you want to keep content or business information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to WEGO Health.

Non-Personal Information

Even if you do not register with or provide any Personal Information to WEGO Health, we collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the WEGO Health Web Sites. “Non-Personal Information” means information that we cannot use to identify or contact you. We may also acquire Non-Personal Information about our users from external sources. While you may use some of the functionality of WEGO Health without registration, many of the specific tools and services on the WEGO Health Web Sites require that you register with WEGO Health.

Cookies and Web Beacons

We collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the WEGO Health Web Sites and your use of other web sites through the use of Cookies and Web Beacons. “Cookies” are small data files that are stored on the hard drive of the computer you use to view a web site. Every computer that accesses the WEGO Health Web Sites is assigned a different cookie by WEGO Health. “Web Beacons” are graphic image files imbedded in a web page typically used to monitor activity on a web page and send back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party) information from your browser, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, the type of browser that is accessing the site and the ID number of any Cookies on your computer previously placed by that server.

Third parties under contract with WEGO Health may use Cookies or Web Beacons to collect Non-Personal Information about your usage of the WEGO Health Web Sites, including which health topics you have viewed. These third party service providers may use this information, on our behalf, to help WEGO Health deliver advertising on the WEGO Health Web Sites as well as on other sites on the Internet based on your browsing activity on our sites. WEGO Health may further tailor the advertising on these third party sites based on additional Non-Personal Information to the extent known by WEGO Health or these third parties.

Mobile Device Applications (“Apps”)

When you download and install one of our WEGO Health Mobile Apps onto your mobile device we assign a random number to your App installation. This number cannot be used to identify you personally, and we cannot identify you personally unless you choose to become a registered user of the App. We use this random number in a manner similar to our use of Cookies as described in this Privacy Policy. Unlike Cookies, the random number is assigned to your installation of the App itself and not a browser, because the App does not work through your browser. Therefore the random number cannot be removed through settings. If you do not want us to use the random number for the purposes for which we use Cookies, please do not use the Mobile Device App, and please use your mobile device browser to access the WEGO Health Web Sites or our mobile optimized sites. We do not obtain any information about your mobile device, other than the brand, make and model and type of operating software your device uses. Please note that certain WEGO Health Mobile Apps require registration either to use the App or to use certain functionality in the App.

WEGO Health’s Apps obtain your consent (via an opt-in) before using information from pin-pointing technology like GPS or cell tower information. You can withdraw your consent (opt-out) for the use of “location” by WEGO Health at any time by changing your location services in the “Settings” function on your mobile device.

Non-Personal Information Collected by Third Parties Not Acting on WEGO Health’s Behalf

We work with third parties to display advertising that reflects the interests and preferences of our user community. Sponsors or advertisers on the WEGO Health Web Sites may use their own Cookies, Web Beacons or other online tracking technologies in the banner advertisements served on the WEGO Health Web Sites and in emails, special promotions or newsletters we send you. Their advertisements may be displayed on the WEGO Health Web Sites or on other sites that you visit after you visit the WEGO Health Web Sites. Some advertisers use companies other than WEGO Health to serve their ads and to monitor users’ responses to ads, and these companies (“Ad Servers”) may also collect Non-Personal Information through the use of Cookies or Web Beacons on the WEGO Health Web Sites.

We do not control how third parties use Cookies or Web Beacons or how they manage the Non-Personal Information they gather through the use of these technologies on the WEGO Health Web Sites. However, we do require sponsors, advertisers and Ad Servers who collect Cookie or Web Beacon information through the WEGO Health Web Sites to agree that they will not collect any Personal Information from the WEGO Health Web Sites without your consent. They have promised us they will not link any Non-Personal Information collected by them on the WEGO Health Web Sites to Personal Information they or others collect in other ways or from other sites except as may be described in connection with a particular Program.

What Choices Do I Have?

Updating/Removing Your Personal Information

You can also update any Personal Information you have submitted by contacting us using the contact information listed below.

If you have registered and desire to delete any of your Personal Information you have provided to us from our systems please contact us using the contact information listed below.

Cookies

Most browser software can be set to reject Cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject Cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our Cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of the WEGO Health Web Sites may not work properly but you do not have to accept our Cookies in order to productively use the WEGO Health Web Sites.

How Information Collected About You Is Used

Information collected by WEGO Health about you is used by WEGO Health to:

  • administer your account,
  • provide you with access to particular tools and services,
  • understand your use of the internet and social media, and to compare your behavior to other members,
  • respond to inquiries you send to us and send you administrative communications about the WEGO Health Web Sites or services,
  • obtain your feedback about the WEGO Health Web Sites or our offerings,
  • statistically analyze user behavior and activity including how frequently areas of the site are visited and how many emails are received and opened,

  • conduct research and measurement activities, including those described below.

WEGO Health may combine Personal and Non-Personal Information collected by WEGO Health about you, and may combine this information with information from external sources.

We also use Cookies in order to enable us to conduct surveys for our own use and on behalf of our advertisers. These Cookies are used to determine whether you have seen certain content or advertising so that we may request your opinions. We may also use Cookies to authenticate respondents or to help you pick up where you left off in a survey. If you have Cookies disabled you may not be able to participate in some surveys.

Information that WEGO Health collects about you may be combined by WEGO Health with other information available to WEGO Health through third parties for research and measurement purposes, including measuring the effectiveness of content, advertising or programs. This information from other sources may include age, gender, demographic, geographic, personal interests, product purchase activity or other information. We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the WEGO Health Web Sites, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners. We do not sell or share any Personal Information with any third parties, except experts performing services on our behalf who agree not to use this information received from us for any purpose other than performing services on our behalf.

With Whom Do We Share Your Information?

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or as specifically agreed to by you, WEGO Health will not disclose any Personal Information it gathers from you through the WEGO Health Web Sites. We may only release Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property or defend or assert legal rights. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information as described below.

In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, WEGO Health reserves the right to transfer your Personal Information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets. In the event of such a change, your Personal Information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the section below that discusses “Changes to This Privacy Policy.”

Disclosures to WEGO Health Operations and Maintenance Service Providers

WEGO Health’s service providers sometimes have limited access to your Personal and Non-Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to WEGO Health. These service providers include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, data analysis, research, advertising and marketing assistance and/or content for the operation and maintenance of the WEGO Health Web Sites. We contractually require that our operations and maintenance service providers: 1) protect the privacy of your Personal and Non-Personal Information consistent with this Privacy Policy and 2) not use or disclose your Personal or Non-Personal Information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for WEGO Health.

Disclosures to Third Party Web Sites

Certain content, services and advertisements offered to you through the WEGO Health Web Sites are served on, or contain links to, web sites hosted and operated by a company other than WEGO Health (“Third Party Web Sites”). WEGO Health does not disclose your Personal Information to these Third Party Web Sites without your consent, but you should be aware that any information you disclose to the other web sites once you access these other web sites is not subject to this Privacy Policy. WEGO Health does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third Party Web Sites. You should review the privacy policy posted on the other web site to understand how that Third Party Web Site collects and uses your Personal Information. WEGO Health makes an effort to make it obvious to you when you leave our website and enter a Third Party Web Site, either by requiring you to click on a link or by notifying you on the site before you visit the third party site. In addition, if you see a phrase such as “Powered by” or “in association with” followed by the name of a company other than WEGO Health, then you are on a web site hosted by a company other than WEGO Health.

How Do We Secure and Retain Your Information?

We take reasonable security measures to protect the security of your Personal Information. Despite WEGO Health’s efforts to protect your Personal Information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.
