Terms & Conditions

Coronavirus.co

Terms of Use

The following document outlines the terms of use of the Coronavirus.co website. Before using any of the Coronavirus.co services, you are required to read, understand, and agree to these terms. Coronavirus.co is not a medical, healthcare or therapeutic services provider and no medical, psychiatric or psychological treatment or advice is being provided by Coronavirus.co. No licensed medical professional/patient relationship is created (i) when you use or access our website or services; or (ii) by or through any communication you receive from us. If you are dealing with a medical emergency, please call 911 immediately. The column on the right provides a short explanation of the terms of use and is not legally binding.

Description of Service

Coronavirus.co, LLC (“Coronavirus.co”, “we”, “us” or “our”) provides a platform via its website and apps (together, the “Site”) to a community of users (“users” or “you”) to (a) engage in a variety of activities, including to share, post, upload, display, download, find, view and/or discuss various forms of user-submitted content (“Content”) on the Site, including comments, opinions, ideas, ratings, reviews, compliments, criticism, messages, articles, images and statistics, and (b) find and share information related to health-related services and resources that may be able to address their needs (the activities referenced in (a) and (b) individually and collectively, the “Services”). The foregoing list of Services is not all-inclusive and additional Services may be offered by us from time to time. The following are the terms of use (“Terms”) for using the Site and the Services.

While Coronavirus.co provides you the opportunity to receive counseling/psychotherapy services information from our network of service providers, Coronavirus.co is not a healthcare company or healthcare provider and does not provide any of the third-party Services featured on the Site. We may provide Site users with the opportunity to submit requests for, and share, information on a wide variety of products and services offered by certain third-party service providers (each such service provider, a "Service Provider"; each such request, a "Request"). Once you provide us with the information required on our form, we attempt to match you with Service Providers to help you identify the type of counseling/psychotherapy services you are seeking. We are not a healthcare provider and do not act as a healthcare provider on the Site, and hence, we do not provide counseling/psychotherapy services or advice ourselves, nor do we endorse any companies, healthcare providers or specific types of counseling/psychotherapy services.

Notwithstanding the above, Coronavirus.co may allow for sponsored and featured content on the Site. Sponsored and featured content includes, but is not limited to, ads and articles, telephone and email addresses, and related contact information. If a counseling/psychotherapy services provider does not want that content associated with its listing, then it may “claim” that listing through our specific claiming process and change the content accordingly, so long as it does not violate Coronavirus.co policies.

Basically,

We develop a community looking for, and seeking to share, information about the COVID-19 coronavirus and other health-related concerns, and to find appropriate services and resources to address their related needs. We will develop more features and services in the future. Although you may be able to gain access to information about counseling or psychotherapy services via our site, we (Coronavirus.co) are not a healthcare company or a healthcare provider, and we are not the provider of any of these types of services. Further, we do not endorse any companies, healthcare providers or specific types of counseling or psychotherapy services.

Acceptance of Terms

BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU ARE AGREEING, ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF AND THOSE YOU REPRESENT, TO COMPLY WITH AND BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THESE TERMS AS WELL AS OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND ALL APPLICABLE LAWS. IF YOU, FOR YOURSELF OR ON BEHALF OF THOSE YOU REPRESENT, DO NOT AGREE TO ANY PROVISION OF THESE TERMS, YOU MUST, FOR YOURSELF AND ON BEHALF ANY SUCH PERSON(S), DISCONTINUE THE REGISTRATION PROCESS, DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND, IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED, CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT.

Basically,

By using Coronavirus.co, you agree to all the terms below.

Modification of Terms

If the alterations constitute a material change to the Terms, Coronavirus.co will notify you by posting an announcement on the Site. What constitutes a material change will be determined at Coronavirus.co’s sole discretion. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Using any Service or viewing any Content constitutes your acceptance of the Terms as modified.

In addition, when using particular features of the Services, you are subject to any posted guidelines, terms or rules applicable to such Services.

Coronavirus.co may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts of or all of the Site and the Services without notice or liability. The Site should not be used or relied upon for storage of your Content and you are directed to retain your own copies of all Content posted on the Site.
