I. Introduction and Eligibility
This agreement is a legally binding contract. It may change as our business changes, and you agree you will review it and any updates regularly. Your continued use of the Recovery Record Service means you accept any changes.
Binding Agreement. These Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and Recovery Record, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively “Recovery Record,” “we,” “us”). “You” and “users” shall mean all visitors to the Recovery Record Service, including individuals, clinicians, and clinicians’ organization users. You accept these Terms each time you access the Recovery Record Service. If you do not accept these Terms, you must not use the Recovery Record Service.
Revisions to Terms. We may revise these Terms at any time by posting an updated version. You should visit this page periodically to review the most current Terms, because you are bound by them. Your continued use of the Recovery Record Service after a change to these Terms constitutes your binding acceptance of these Terms.
The terms “post” and “posting” as used in these Terms shall mean the act of submitting, uploading, publishing, displaying, or similar action on the Recovery Record Service.
“Health-Related Information” means all individually identifiable health information, including demographic information and information related to an individual’s physical or mental health, the provision of health care to the individual, or the individual’s payment for the provision of health care.
“Clinician” means a treatment professional with whom an individual has a patient-provider relationship outside of the Recovery Record Service. Clinicians are not employees, independent contractors, or agents of Recovery Record.
II. The Recovery Record Service
The “Recovery Record Service” means the website located at www.recoveryrecord.com and any mobile application or Internet services under Recovery Record’s control, whether partial or otherwise, in connection with providing its services. The Recovery Record Service provides a web and mobile platform for eating disorder education and management so that individuals and clinicians can record and evaluate recovery goals and progress.
The Recovery Record Service provides information, not medical, legal, or psychological advice, diagnoses, or treatment.
You assume full risk and responsibility for your use of information obtained through the Recovery Record Service.
Informational Purposes Only. You acknowledge that all of the information and content on the Recovery Record Service not provided by clinicians is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. Recovery Record does not give medical, legal, or psychological advice, diagnoses, or treatment. The Recovery Record Service may provide helpful Health-Related Information, but it is not intended to substitute for professional advice, diagnoses, or treatment, or your judgment. You assume full risk and responsibility for the use of or reliance on information you obtain from or through the Recovery Record Service or from Recovery Record.
Clinicians Must Treat Information Obtained through the Recovery Record Service as Confidential Patient-Provider Communications. The Recovery Record Service provides a service to allow individuals to post Health-Related Information and transmit it to clinicians and clinician’s organizations. Clinicians, clinicians’ organizations, and those acting on their behalf, agree to treat the information they obtain through the Recovery Record Service as confidential patient-provider communications. Moreover, clinicians, clinicians’ organizations, and those acting on their behalf, agree to treat such information in conformance with the clinicians’ and clinicians’ organizations’ own policies and applicable law related to confidential patient-provider communications and Health-Related Information.
You are not a patient or client of Recovery Record Service. Contact a professional for medical, legal, or psychological advice.
No Patient or Client Relationship with Recovery Record. Your use of Recovery Record Service does not create a patient or client relationship with Recovery Record. You should consult with qualified health professionals who are familiar with your individual medical needs concerning your specific medical issues. Never disregard professional advice or delay in seeking it because of information you read on the Recovery Record Service. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. We do not recommend or endorse any provider of health care or health-related products, tests, opinions, procedures, items, or services.
Communicating with Multiple Clinicians. You may be able to use the Recovery Record Service to communicate with a single clinician or a group of clinicians. Your communications may be seen by those clinicians who are members of the group to which you are communicating. For example, if you are linked with three clinicians in the Recovery Record Service and want to discuss a topic with two of them, you may send group communications to just those two. You agree to send messages to other users only when they are relevant to the purposes for using the Recovery Record Service, and you agree not to send spam or harassing messages. You may be able to stop receiving messages through the Recovery Record Service by severing your link with the other user.
III. Recovery Record’s Health-Related Information Practices
Recovery Record voluntarily complies with the requirements of the “Privacy Rule” and “Security Rule” as defined by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) of 1996 and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (“HITECH Act”).
We may use and disclose Health-Related Information to provide our services.
We may use de-identified Health-Related Information as permitted by law.
HIPAA Authorization to Clinicians Upon Request. Upon our request, you agree to provide Recovery Record with a written or electronically signed authorization to release any Protected Health Information (as that term is defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) that you have posted to the Recovery Record Service, so that we may electronically deliver or make such information available to you or clinicians and their organizations through the Recovery Record Service in accordance with such written or electronically signed authorization. We may provide you with a form for such purposes.
Use and Disclosure. We may use and process the Health-Related Information posted to the Recovery Record Service for the proper management, provision, and administration of the Recovery Record Service and our business, and as permitted by law. We may also disclose Health-Related Information if we believe it is required by law or we obtain reasonable assurances from the recipient that such information will be held confidentially and used or further disclosed only as required by law or for the purpose for which we disclosed it. You agree that Recovery Record may use and share de-identified Health-Related Information to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Data Transfers at Your Request. We do not transfer Health-Related Information to third parties, other than clinicians and their organizations, our vendors and suppliers, and as otherwise required. We may transfer Health-Related Information to third parties, including health plans, health-care clearinghouse, and others upon the request of you and the users who are acting under your account. You acknowledge that when you consent to transferring the information to third parties, we have no control over how those third parties will use and disclose the information.
Access, Amendment, and Accountings. We will facilitate any clinician’s requirements under the Privacy Rule to give patients access and the ability to amend Health-Related Information you posted to the Recovery Record Service. We may also facilitate an accounting of disclosures as required by the Privacy Rule.
Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) Audits. We may give HHS access to our internal practices, books, and records related to the use and disclosure of Health-Related Information for the purposes of determining compliance with the Privacy Rule.
The Recovery Record Service retains the information you post to it for compliance and regulatory purposes and will cooperate with you regarding requests to delete information. We will provide you copies of Health-Related Information in electronic form if you decide to terminate your use of the Recovery Record Service.
Termination of these Terms. At the termination of these Terms, at your request, we will provide you with a copy of Health-Related Information in an electronic form that is accessible through commercially available hardware and software. If feasible, we will also return or destroy all Health-Related Information you post to the Recovery Record Service. If such return or destruction is not feasible, we will continue to abide by these Terms with respect to such information and limit further uses and disclosures to those purposes that make the return or destruction of the information infeasible. You acknowledge that segregating Health-Related Information for removal from the Recovery Record Service may be infeasible.
Security Rule. We will comply with the provisions of the HIPAA Security Rule as applicable to business associates but reserve the right to discontinue or modify the Recovery Record Service in the event such rules are amended or changed.
We will use appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to prevent use or disclosure of Health-Related Information other than as provided for by these Terms.
Appropriate Safeguards. We will use appropriate safeguards to prevent the use or disclosure of Health-Related Information other than as provided for by these Terms, including administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information.
Security Incident. We will report to clinicians any discovered use or disclosure of Health-Related Information not provided for by these Terms, or when we determine that unauthorized access to Health-Related Information has occurred. We will cooperate reasonably with clinicians to investigate and mitigate any such breach and provide clinicians with the necessary information to make any legally required notification to individuals.

It is very important that you have permission to use other people’s content or they may be able to sue you for violating their legal rights.

Clinicians’ Use of Posted Content on the Recovery Record Service. You may choose to make available Your User Content, including Health-Related Information, to clinicians and clinicians’ organizations. By doing so, you grant the clinician and clinicians’ organization a non-exclusive license to access or otherwise use Your User Content for medical diagnosis, treatment, and reporting purposes.

IX. Copyright Policy
Tell us if you think a user has violated your copyright using the Recovery Record Service, or if you think someone incorrectly reported that you violated his or her copyright.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials posted on the Recovery Record Service infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Recovery Record a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Recovery Record Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
- Identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Recovery Record to locate the material on the Recovery Record Service;
- Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
We may terminate the accounts and/or prevent content posting of users who repeatedly infringe copyright holders’ copyrights. A ”repeat infringer“ is a user who, on more than two occasions, has been determined by final order of a United States court to have infringed the copyright rights of a third party by providing infringing content through the Recovery Record Service.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Recovery Record a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Recovery Record Service should be sent to [1121 Clark Way, Palo Alto, CA 94304] (email@example.com). Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
