- JURISDICTIONAL ISSUES
We provide our Services only to persons in the United States. Accordingly, this Policy, and our collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information (as defined below) is governed by U.S. law. We do not represent or warrant that the Application or our Services or any functionality or feature thereof, is appropriate or available for use in any other jurisdiction. By using the Application and submitting any Personal Information from outside the United States, you acknowledge that the Services are subject to U.S. law and consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to the United States, which may provide a different level of data security than other countries.
Our Services require a fee, which is either paid (i) by the user (“Personal Service User”) or (ii) by a third party on behalf of the user (“Business Service User”).
Whether you are a Personal Service User or a Business Service User, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with connecting to and using the Website and/or Mobile App, including without limitation all telephone access lines (including mobile data and data roaming charges, when applicable), telephone and/or internet service provider fees, telephone and computer equipment, sales taxes and any other fees and charges necessary to access our Website and/or Mobile App.
- FEES, RENEWAL, CANCELLATIONS & REFUND POLICIES
- Agreement to Pay.
(i) Personal Service Users. If you are a Personal Service User, you will be responsible for the fixed and periodic charges and fees (including prepayment plan fees for multiple periods or recurring monthly fees) you selected at the time of subscription. Applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to access the Services may also apply.
(ii) Business Service Users. Business Service Users’ subscriptions are generally purchased by our third party commercial customers (“Business Customers”) for a specified period. If your access to our Service has been paid for by our Business Customer, you will be able to use the features purchased by them for the period or program agreed between Mymee and such Business Customer.
- Auto-Renewal. Unless your Services have been paid for by a Business Customer, your subscription will automatically be extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration selected at the time of your purchase, at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate. Until you cancel, we will charge or debit your payment method at the beginning of your subscription period and each successive renewal period. Your non-cancellation of the Services or continued use of the paid subscription features of the Service will reaffirm that we are authorized to charge you. If your credit or debit account has been closed or your payment method is otherwise invalid, your subscription may not renew and your subscription will be automatically be put on hold and you will be logged out of the Mymee App effective as of the end of your current billing cycle.
Renewal charges will generally be the same as the prior period’s charge, unless we notify you in advance at the time of sign up or prior to the beginning of the renewal period of a different charge. If (i) you purchased a multiple-period prepayment plan or (ii) you were eligible for a promotional rate but are no longer eligible for that rate, then your subscription will be offered to renewed at our then-current non-promotional subscription rates at the start of the renewal period. If you wish to renew and we are currently offering promotional rates at such time, you must renew your subscription prior to the termination of your current plan. If you fail to renew your subscription for any Services before its scheduled expiration date, then the then-current non-promotional subscription rate will apply.
- Cancelling Your Services Subscription. You can cancel your subscription for our Services at any time by contacting your coach directly (more on how to cancel here), or by such other means as we may provide from time to time. We will attempt to process all cancellation requests within 72 hours after we receive your request. If you terminate your paid subscription for Service, your subscription will remain active until the end of your then-current subscription period. Data is retained after cancellation for a period of six (6) days. If you sign back up for our Services after that time frame, your previous data will not be available.
- Refund Policy.
(i) Our fees and charges are non-refundable.
(ii) If you choose to cancel your subscription within your trial period, you will not be charged for the subscription. Your Services will expire within four days from the cancel date, and the Mymee App will log you out.
(iii) If you terminate your paid subscription for our Service after the trial period, your subscription will remain active until the end of your subscription period, no subsequent charges will be processed after the subscription period ends.
- Subscriptions through Business Customers. For Business Services Users, the Business Customer paying for your subscription may determine your access to the Services and may control the account through which you access your subscription (which may be different from your personal account). If your subscription was originally provided by a Business Customer but you are no longer eligible to receive such benefit from the Business Customer, it is also possible that your account with us will terminate and you will have to sign up for a new account. You agree that we will not be liable to you for any termination or cancellation of your access to, or use of, our Services that were originally provided to you by a Business Customer.

- Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Website. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by User to User’s Device.

Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some but not all instances can be blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Each browser User uses will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard. Also, these tools may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies. For information on disabling Flash cookies go to Adobe’s web site www.adobe.com.

- Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called “web beacons” (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in pages and messages of our Website, Mymee App and Services. Web beacons may be invisible to User, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Website and , Mymee App and Services, to monitor how users navigate the Website and , Mymee App and Services, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
- Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about User’s interactions with the Website and/or the, Mymee App and Services, such as the links the User clicks on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto User’s Device from Mymee’s web server and/or the Mymee Mobile App or a third party service provider, is active only while User is connected to the Website and/or Mymee App, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
- ETag, or entity tag. A feature of the cache in browsers. It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner ETags are a form of Device Identifier. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the User consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.
Mymee may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:
There may be other Tracking Technologies now and later devised and used by Mymee in connection with the Website, Mymee App and Services. Further, third parties may use Tracking Technologies with Mymee’s Website.

- Your Rights
Set forth below is a statement of your rights with respect to your protected health information and a brief description of how you may exercise these rights.
You have the right to inspect and copy your protected health information. This means you may inspect and obtain a copy of protected health information about you that is contained in a designated record set for as long as we maintain the protected health information. A “designated record set” contains medical and billing records and any other records that Mymee uses regarding your care.
Under federal law, however, you may not inspect or copy the following records: psychotherapy notes; information compiled in reasonable anticipation of, or use in, a civil, criminal, or administrative action or proceeding, and protected health information that is subject to law that prohibits access to protected health information. In some circumstances, you may have a right to review a decision that denies you access to information. Please contact our Privacy Contact if you have questions about access to your health information.
You have the right to request a restriction on the use or disclosure of your protected health information. This means you may ask us not to use or disclose any part of your protected health information for the purposes of treatment, payment or healthcare operations. You may also request that any part of your protected health information not be disclosed to family members or friends who may be involved in your care or for notification purposes as described in this Notice of Privacy Practices. Your request must state the specific restriction requested and to whom you want the restriction to apply. However, Mymee is not required to agree to a restriction that you request. If Mymee believes it is in your best interest to permit use and disclosure of your protected health information, your protected health information will not be restricted. If Mymee does agree to a requested restriction, we may not use or disclose your protected health information in violation of that restriction unless it is needed to provide emergency treatment for you. With this in mind, please discuss any restriction you wish to request in advance with the Privacy Contact listed below.
You have the right to request to receive confidential communications of your protected health information from Mymee by alternative means or at an alternative location. We will accommodate reasonable requests. We also may condition this accommodation by asking you for information as to how payment will be handled or specification of an alternative address or other method of contact. We will not request an explanation from you as to the basis for the request. Please make such requests in writing to our Privacy Officer.
You may have the right to have Mymee amend your protected health information. This means you may request an amendment of protected health information about you in a designated record set for as long as we maintain this information. In certain cases, we may deny your request for an amendment. If we deny your request for amendment, you have the right to file a statement of disagreement with us and we may prepare a rebuttal to your statement and will provide you with a copy of any such rebuttal. Please contact our Privacy Contact below if you have questions about amending your medical record.
You have the right to receive an accounting of certain disclosures we have made, if any, of your protected health information. This right does not apply to all disclosures; in particular, it does not apply to disclosures for purposes necessary to carry out treatment, payment or healthcare operations as described in this Notice of Privacy Practices. It excludes disclosures we may have made to you, you, for a facility directory, to family members or friends involved in your care, or for notification purposes. The right to receive this information is subject to additional exceptions, restrictions and limitations. We also are required to notify you following a breach of your health information, if that information is unsecured.
