Care for Beirut Terms of Service

Last Updated: 8 August 2020

These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your use of services provided by Care For Beirut (“we”, “us”, “our”, or “CFB”), including without limitation our website, mobile or web applications, or other digital products that link to or reference these Terms
(collectively, the “Services”).

These Terms are a binding legal agreement between you or the entity you represent (“you”) and CFB. In these Terms, “you” and “your” refer to you, a user of the Services. A “user” is you or anyone who accesses, browses, or in any way uses the Site.

These Terms also refer to our privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”), hereby incorporated by reference, which also applies to your use of the Services and which sets out the terms on which we process any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us.

Please read these Terms carefully, as they may be changed from time to time. Though your access and use of the Services is governed by the Terms effective at the time, please note that we may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our discretion. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will notify you by email or by posting a notice on our website prior to the effective date of the changes.

These Terms are to ensure that you will use the Services only in the ways in which we intend for it to be used.

1. Terms

By accessing the website at http://careforbeirut.com/, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If you do not agree with any term of these Terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark laws.

2. Use Licence

a) Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the materials (information or software) on Care for Beirut's website for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a licence, not a transfer of title, and under
this licence you may not:
  • modify or copy the materials;
  • use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non commercial);
  • attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on Care for Beirut's website;
  • remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
  • transfer the materials to another person or "mirror"; the materials on any other server.

b) This licence shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by CFB at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this licence, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic, printed format or otherwise.

3. Disclaimer

The website is provided on an 'as is' and ‘as available’ basis and
all use of the website is at the users own risk. CFB makes no representations or warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties including, without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. CFB further expressly disclaims any warranties of merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose.

Further, CFB does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its website or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site and does not represent or warrant that the use of the website will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that information contained on the website will be accurate, complete or up-to-date.

4. Limitations

To the maximum extent permitted by law, in no event shall Care for Beirut or its suppliers be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages arising out of or in connection with the Services, whether or not Care for Beirut has been advised of the possibility of such damages or from any
communications, interactions or meetings with other users of the website or Services, on any theory of liability (including contract, tort including negligence, or howsoever otherwise) arising out of, in connection with, or resulting from the Services (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption). For the avoidance of doubt, Care for Beirut will only act as an intermediary and will introduce users to doctors and medical assistants and will not in any event whatsoever
be liable for the information provided by the patients to the doctors and medical assistants, or for the medical advice and information provided by the doctors and medical assistants to the users.

5. Accuracy of Materials

The materials appearing on Care for Beirut's website could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. Care for Beirut does not warrant that any of the materials on its website are accurate, complete or current. Care for Beirut may make changes to the materials contained on its website at any time without prior notice, except for material changes which will be notified to you by email or on our website. However, Care for Beirut does not make any commitment to update the materials.

6. Links

CFB has not reviewed all of the sites linked to its website and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by CFB of the site. Use of any such linked website is at the user's own risk. We assume no responsibility or liability for any information, products or services available on or through any third-party Internet or mobile site, or for any actions taken by you or others in connection therewith.

7. No Guarantee of Service

Although we hope to make the Services available at all times in the future, there may be times when we need to disable the Site either temporarily or permanently. The Services may be modified, updated, interrupted, suspended, or discontinued at any time without notice or liability. Keep this in mind as CFB will not be liable if all or any part of the Services is unavailable at any time, for any period of time. Also, from time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Services, or the entire Services, to users, including registered users. We cannot and do not make any representations or warranties with respect to the devices you use to access or use the Services, including with respect to device compatibility.

8. Modifications

Care for Beirut may revise these Terms for its website at any time without notice. By using this website you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of these Terms. If Care for Beirut makes material changes to these Terms, we will notify you by email or by posting a notice on our website prior to the effective date of the changes.

9. Governing Law

These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Lebanon and you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts in Lebanon.

10. General Provision

These Terms, along with the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and Care For Beirut with respect to use of the Website, superseding all prior or contemporaneous communications with Care For Beirut. These Terms are severable, and in the event any provision is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not in any way affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions.

Care For Beirut may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without notice to you. A printed version of these Terms shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the use of the Website to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. The section titles of
these Terms are displayed for convenience only and have no legal effect. Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

The doctors and medical assistants providing Services on the Care For Beirut platform are volunteers providing medical advice for individuals seeking reassurance. They are not to be held responsible in any way if any complications develop with the patient as a full personal examination of the patient has not been carried out. Care For Beirut will not be held liable for the medical advice provided by the doctors and medical assistants.
 


Privacy Policy


Your privacy is important to us. It is Care for Beirut's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, http://careforbeirut.com/, and other sites we own and operate. By using the Services, you consent to this Privacy Policy. Information gathered through the Services may be transferred, used, and stored in Lebanon or in other countries where our service providers or we are located. If you use the Services, you agree to the transfer, use and storage of your personal information (as defined below) in those countries.

We only ask for personal information when we need it to provide a service to you. We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used. We collect personal information (such as (but not limited to) names, gender, age, email addresses, and phone numbers) and also collect non personal information, that is, information that does not personally identify an individual. The non-personal information we collect includes how you interact with the Services, and other information generally collected or logged by internet websites or internet services when accessed or used by users (such as your internet
protocol, information about your operating system and browser, the pages of our website that you viewed during your visit, what information or content you view, hover over, click on, the city and country in which you are located but not your precise geographical location, and unique identifiers, meaning arbitrary codes or series of characters we create to identify unique users without personal information). Information collected by the Services may be collected by us or one of our service providers, but in either case, this Privacy Policy will govern the collection, use and sharing of the information.

We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the Terms of the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

Finally, we reserve the right to transfer information (including your personal information) to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Care For Beirut, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation or
receivership of our business. You will be notified via email or prominent notice on our website for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

Lastly, we may also disclose non-personal information, anonymously aggregated with information about our other users, to our clients, business partners, merchants, advertisers, investors, potential buyers and other third parties if we deem such disclosure, in our sole discretion, to have sound business reasons or justifications.

Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.

You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services.

Your continued use of our website will be regarded as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, feel free to contact us on careforbeirut@gmail.com
