3. Access to our Website

Our Website is accessible through the internet by any smart phone or other smart device (we refer to each as a "Smart Device") or computer, in each case with a compatible browser. You are responsible for each computer or Smart Device you use to access our Website, including providing and maintaining properly running compatible updated software, a suitable internet connection, and an appropriate firewall and virus scanning software.

4. Using Our Data Services and Software Apps

4.1 Our Software Apps

We may provide Human Engineering Apps for your use on your computer or Smart Devices in connection with your use of HE Products. Software Apps may provide stand-alone functionality, may be used in connection with our Data Services, or both.

4.2 Our Data Services

Our Data Services are intended to allow a User, as applicable, to use the data generated by, or created in connection with the use of, their HE Product ("User Data") for which the Data Service is compatible ("User Device") to help the User, as applicable, stabilize their blood sugar. Use of our Data Services requires an internet-enabled Smart Device or computer. Some Data Services receive User Data from a Software App that is downloaded to your Smart Device or computer. Users are entitled to provide, or direct the Data Service to provide, such data and reports to others as they determine at their own responsibility.

You acknowledge and agree that Data Services are not a substitute for regular monitoring and medical care, and that you will ensure that all appropriate treatment, attention and efforts are made by and for the benefit of the User, as applicable, to maintain his or her health and wellness. Our collection, storage and transmission of User Data and any other information that you provide to Human Engineering through HE Services and Software Apps is governed by general privacy policy and iOS related privacy policy.

Each Data Service or Software App may require the creation of a HE user account on our Website ("User Account"). If so, you are required to accurately complete and maintain the User Account and to provide us with all required information.

4.4 Third Party Software Updates

Our Software Apps run on specific versions of third party operating systems and browser software for your computer or Smart Device ("Platform Software"). When the third party provider issues an update to Platform Software, we will require additional time to provide a compatible update to the Software App. If you update Platform Software prior to our making available an appropriate update to a Software App, you may no longer be able to use the Software App you have been using, or the Software App may not properly function. We may determine not to provide a compatible update to the Software App, and therefore before you update Platform Software, you should first check the applicable location where you originally downloaded the Software App to determine if an update to the Software App or Data Service is needed.

4.5 Consistent Use

Certain HE Products, HE Services and Software Apps will archive and store the data generated by the applicable User Device (which archival and storage is governed by the Privacy Policy). As a result, such HE Products, HE Services and Software Apps must be used only with the applicable User Device and associated User Account. Failure to do so may (1) cause the applicable HE Product, HE Service or Software App to perform improperly, or not to perform at all, (2) corrupt the User Data, or (3) cause inaccurate User Data to be associated with the User or cause the User Data to be inaccurately displayed or analyzed.

4.6 Rights to HE Services and the Software Apps

Apple is not a party to this Agreement and does not own and is not responsible for any Software App. Apple is not providing any warranty for any Software App. Apple is not responsible for maintenance or other support services for any Software App and will not be responsible for any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses with respect to any Software App, including any third-party product liability claims, claims that any Software App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation, and claims with respect to intellectual property infringement.

8. Complete Agreement.

This Agreement is the complete and final agreement between the parties relating to HE Products, HE Services and Software Apps; supersedes any prior agreements or communications between the parties; and may only be modified as described in this Agreement (see Section 2.1). Failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. This Agreement has been drafted in English at the express request of the parties.

9. Copyright Infringement Claims.

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 available on the HE Services infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to Human Engineering a written notice by mail or by e-mail requesting that Human Engineering remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly submitted to us a notice of copyright infringement involving content that you made available through any HE Service, the DMCA permits you to send to HE a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. Click here for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Human Engineering's DMCA agent as follows: By mail to Human Engineering Health Oy, Parrulaituri 10D 24, 00540 Helsinki, Uusimaa, Finland., or by e-mail to hello@humanengineering.io.

We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice. You may have equivalent rights under other applicable laws.

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Human Engineering has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, HE Service users who are deemed by Human Engineering to be repeat infringers. Human Engineering may also at its sole discretion limit access to the HE Service and/or terminate the accounts of any HE Service users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not such users are deemed to be repeat infringers.
