Lexercise® Individual Therapist Terms of Use

Last modified: June 9, 2021

We at Mind InFormation, Inc. (“we”) provide access to and use of our integrated online platform for teletherapy providers known in the marketplace as LEXERCISE® (including the Website (as defined below) and all functionality, software, content and services made available thereon, the “Platform”) to: (i) registered teletherapy groups (“Therapy Groups”) pursuant to a written agreement (the “Therapy Group Terms of Service”) between us and the Therapy Group, and (ii) certain course takers accessing our LEXERCISE® Professional Education materials (a “Course Taker”) pursuant to our Professional Education Terms of Service (the “Professional Education Terms of Service”) online at https://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/professional-education-terms-of-service. “You” are either (x) an individual therapist being permitted to access and use the Platform on behalf of a Therapist Group subject and pursuant to the Therapy Group Terms of Service (such persons described in clause (x), the “Therapists”), or (y) an individual Course Taker being permitted to access and use the Platform on your own behalf (such persons described in clauses (x) and (y), collectively, the “Individual Therapists”). In either event, this Individual Therapist Terms of Use (this “Agreement”) is an additional binding legal agreement between you and us governing your access to and use of the Platform, personally.

Please be advised: the Platform, its features and functionality and the design, selection and arrangement thereof, as well as the underlying structure, ideas, know-how and algorithms relevant to the Platform, are all owned by us and are protected by copyright, trade secret and other intellectual property rights laws. You should read the terms and conditions of this Agreement carefully before you start to use the Platform. Use of the Platform contrary to the provisions below will constitute a breach of the Agreement and may violate copyright, trade secret and other intellectual property rights laws.

The Platform enables you to work with children or other individuals with learning difficulties that are registered to use the Platform (each, a “User”) to overcome the User’s learning difficulties by providing information, instruction, tools and exercises for the User, where applicable under the supervision of the User’s parent, legal guardian, or other entity or organization (such as a school) who has custody or control over the User (each, a “Guardian” and together with their associated User, the “Clients”). For the avoidance of doubt, “Clients” includes any prospective Clients of the Platform.

THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERN YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE PLATFORM AND FORM A BINDING LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND US. BY REGISTERING TO USE THE PLATFORM (INCLUDING BY CLICKING TO “ACCEPT” OR “AGREE” TO THIS AGREEMENT WHEN THIS OPTION IS PRESENTED TO YOU, OR BY OTHERWISE ACCESSING AND USING THE PLATFORM), YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS AGREEMENT AND YOU ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE YOU ARE LEGALLY BOUND BY ITS TERMS. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT YOU ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER OR OTHERWISE OF AN AGE WHERE YOU CAN FORM A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT IN YOUR JURISDICTION. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT REGISTER TO USE THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES OR OTHERWISE ACCESS OR USE THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES.

Changes to this Agreement

We may revise and update this Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion. Via a conspicuous posting within the Platform itself or via notice by e-mail to the e-mail address we have on file for you, we will notify you of any material changes to this Agreement. If you do not agree with any changes we make to this Agreement, you may exercise your right to terminate this Agreement as described below in the section titled “Termination.” Otherwise, changes to this Agreement are effective immediately when we post them, and your continued use of the Platform following the posting of a revised Agreement means that you accept and agree to the changes. You must immediately discontinue access or use of the Platform if you do not want to agree to the revised Agreement.

Changes to the Platform

We may make any updates, alterations, enhancements, modifications or other changes to our Platform (including, without limitation, changes to the design, look and feel, functionality, content, material, information and/or services provided via the Platform) that we deem necessary or useful to improve the Platform or for any other reason, from time to time in our discretion and without notice. If you do not agree with any changes we make to the Platform, you may exercise your right to terminate this Agreement as described below in the section titled “Termination.”

Using the Platform.

Accessing the Platform. We strive to provide a reliable and useful experience when using our Platform, but we do not guarantee that our Platform will be available at any specific time or that it will be free of errors, and we will not be liable for any reason if you cannot access the Platform or if an error in the Platform hinders any of its features or functionality.

Minimum Qualifications to Participate. Your access to and use of the Platform as an Individual Therapist is subject to our efforts to vet and to validate the qualifications of Individual Therapists who wish to register for and use the Platform. These efforts may include, without limitation: (i) requiring each Individual Therapist to pass a qualification examination, (ii) requiring each Individual Therapist to provide documentation of his or her relevant education and experience, (iii) requiring each Individual Therapist to have earned at least 100 hours of practical experience serving clients with dyslexia or similar learning difficulties, (iv) requiring each Individual Therapist to take and pass the Lexercise training course, (v) engaging in on-going review of Client feedback regarding each Individual Therapist, (vi) performing background checks, and/or (vii) any other means as determined in our sole and absolute discretion. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to suspend or terminate any Individual Therapist’s access to and use of the Platform or re-assign Clients to others at any time as a result of an Individual Therapist’s failure to meet our minimum qualifications described in this section.

Service-Quality Standards. You must provide all teletherapy, instructional and related services to Clients in accordance with the following “Service-Quality Standards” at a minimum: (A) all services must be performed in a timely, diligent, professional and workmanlike manner, consistent with prevailing best practices and industry standards for such services, using appropriately-qualified (and, where applicable, licensed) personnel, and (B) in connection with performing any services for Clients you must at a minimum acknowledge receipt of (and use best efforts to respond to) all inquiries and requests from Clients within one business day of receiving such inquiries or requests. If at any time you fail to comply with any Service-Quality Standards, as determined by us in our sole and absolute discretion, we reserve the right, at our option and in our discretion, to suspend or terminate your access to and use of the Platform, to re-assign Clients to others, and/or to provide Clients with a refund of any service fees we have collected from Clients.

Copyright Infringement / DMCA Policy. We take claims of copyright infringement seriously and will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law. Postings on our Platform are subject to our Copyright Infringement / DMCA Policy, available for review at http://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/copyright-dmca. It is our policy to terminate the user accounts of repeat infringers.

Account Security. If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. If you permit any other person to use your account, you will be responsible for their activities while using the Platform. You agree to notify us promptly of any unauthorized access to or use of any user name or password assigned to you or any other breach of security. Accessing the Platform without proper user name and password is strictly prohibited, constitutes a breach of this Agreement which may result in the termination of your right to use the Platform, and may violate copyright and other laws.

Collection and Use of Your Information. All information we collect about you via the Platform is subject to our Therapist Privacy Policy, which may be reviewed by visiting https://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/therapist-privacy-policy. BY USING THE PLATFORM, OR BY REGISTERING TO ACCESS AND USE THE PLATFORM, YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND AND ABIDE BY OUR THERAPIST PRIVACY POLICY. If you do not agree to our Therapist Privacy Policy, you must not provide us with any personal information.

Use Outside of the United States. The Platform is hosted in the United States and is provided from the United States. It is possible that certain information will be stored on servers in multiple other countries on the “cloud” or other similar distributed hosting platforms. If you are accessing the Platform from the European Union, Asia or any other region with laws governing personal information collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, you are expressly and knowingly consenting to the transfer of all personal information to the United States and other jurisdictions as indicated above, and to our use of such personal information in accordance with our Lexercise Privacy Policies. Each individual accessing the Platform from anywhere outside of the United States is required to refer to our additional “International User Privacy Disclosure” http://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/privacy-international-users and to click “I AGREE” when the option is presented to you before you will be permitted to provide your personal information to us via the Platform.

No Express or Implied Right to Work with Clients. Nothing in this Agreement or otherwise shall create any obligation for us to introduce you to any Clients or ensure or guarantee any minimum number of Clients for you to work with via the Platform. From time to time we may choose, in our sole and absolute discretion, to introduce you to Clients via the Platform, but our choice to do so in a particular instance does not create any express or implied obligation to continue doing so at any time in the future.

Use of Video-Conferencing Software. Video-conference teletherapy sessions should take place using a software of the your choosing, with many often using ZoomTM for such purposes. It is your responsibility to pay for and comply with the terms of use of such software.

Content Standards

You acknowledge and agree that all of your messages, communications, postings, uploads, publications, submissions and contributions (“posts”) on, to or in connection with the Platform must in their entirety comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations and shall not:

  1. contain any material that is defamatory, obscene, indecent, abusive, offensive, harassing, violent, hateful, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable, or promote or advertise any particular religious or political beliefs;
  2. promote sexually explicit or pornographic material, violence or discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age;
  3. infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual property rights of any other person;
  4. violate the legal rights (including the rights of publicity and privacy) of any Clients or any other person or entity or contain any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable laws, rules or regulations or that otherwise may be in conflict with this Agreement or our Therapist Privacy Policy (https://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/therapist-privacy-policy) or Client Privacy Policy (https://www.lexercise.com/about/legal/client-privacy );
  5. contain any false advertising, misrepresentations or be likely to confuse or deceive any person;
  6. promote any illegal activity, or advocate, promote or assist any unlawful act;
  7. cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety or be likely to upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
  8. involve commercial activities or sales, such as contests, sweepstakes and other sales promotions, barter or advertising that are unrelated to the express purposes of the Platform;
  9. involve the marketing or promotion of other products, services or materials that are unrelated to (or that are competitive with) the services and materials we make available to Clients via the Platform, or that give the impression that we or any other person or entity endorses such alternate products, services or materials if this is not the case;
  10. give the impression that they emanate from or are endorsed by us or any other person or entity, if this is not the case; or
  11. have the purpose of exploiting, harming or attempting to exploit or harm minors in any way by exposing them to inappropriate content.

The requirements for all posts described in this Section shall be referred to herein as the “Content Standards.” Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that we do not undertake to review all material before it is posted on the Platform, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by you, any user or any third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.

Interactions Outside the Platform

We consider our lists of Clients seeking teletherapy, instructional and related services to be our non-public, confidential and trade secret information. We provide access to these lists and otherwise facilitate interactions between Clients and Individual Therapists through the Platform as a service to Clients, in exchange for the service fees that Clients pay to us. If an Individual Therapist were to access these lists and use them to engage in transactions outside of the Platform, or if a Client and an Individual Therapist were introduced to one another through initial interactions through the Platform only to engage in future transactions together directly and not through the Platform, then this would cause us to lose the “benefit of the bargain” of providing our Platform and related services. Therefore, you agree that you may not, during the period of time in which you have an account on the Platform and for one year thereafter, directly or indirectly, except with our prior express written consent: (i) enter into a transaction with a Client whose information you first obtained through access to the Platform (the “Introduced Party”) that is similar to, in competition with, or which otherwise could have the effect of preventing us from receiving the full benefit of, the transactions contemplated by our Client Terms of Service, (ii) solicit the Introduced Party to enter into such transaction, or (iii) induce, solicit, procure, or otherwise encourage your (or your subsidiary’s or affiliate’s) employees, contractors, agents or representatives, or respond to any solicitation from any of the same, to enter into any such transaction. Without limiting the generality of the forgoing, Individual Therapists may not (i) list on the Platform any services to be performed and then arrange for such services to be provided and/or paid for outside of the Platform, or (ii) refer to, market or promote their personal websites, services, or other businesses outside of the Platform. However, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, Individual Therapists are permitted to move off of the Platform entirely their teletherapy and instructional sessions with any User so long as (A) in the Individual Therapist’s reasonable professional opinion, the User’s therapy and instruction would proceed substantially more effectively outside of the Platform than inside of it, (B) such movement off of the Platform is not being carried out, in whole or in part, to avoid payment of the Platform’s services fees, and (C) no instructional materials, interactive learning features, or other Platform materials, videos or content are used in such off-Platform therapy.

Equitable Remedies. You acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by you of this Agreement would cause us irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, we will be entitled to equitable relief, including in a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court of competent jurisdiction, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise.
