Specifically, VITR.AI is to be used by healthcare platforms serving the population of Canada only.

You may not use VITR.AI for any purpose other than as agreed to in these Terms of Use without our prior written consent. These license rights are further limited by the obligations and restrictions set forth elsewhere in the Master Agreement and its appendices, and all rights not expressly granted to you herein remain our sole property.

B. Identification of VITR.AI

A platform using VITR.AI or its content may be required to display VITR.AI's identification in the process of connecting patients, along with the phrase "powered by".

As part of your access to VITR.AI and use of its content, you must use your own name, whether it identifies your company, organization, application, website or otherwise, and your own logos.

VITR.AI may only be identified, subject to the express acceptance of its administrators, as an application programming interface or prediction algorithm.

D. Restrictions on Use and Privacy

You may not sell, rent, sublicense or otherwise redistribute to any third party or to any person, entity or corporation directly or indirectly related to you, any content on VITR.AI.

In addition and without limiting the foregoing, you are not permitted to:

  1. Access or use VITR.AI in violation of any law, regulation, or the rights of any person, including, but not limited to, intellectual property rights and privacy rights, or any rights that would otherwise be detrimental to VITR.AI, its suppliers, related persons or companies;

You agree that at no time, before, during or after accessing or using VITR.AI, will you attempt to appropriate or assert any rights, including, but not limited to, VITR.AI's proprietary intellectual property, methods, source code, content, generated data, know-how, API and prediction algorithms.

F. Security

The security of your data is of the utmost importance to us. We will always maintain reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect patient and professional user data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure or unauthorized access.

VITR.AI operates on servers located in Canada that are ISO 27001, ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 certified, PCI, DSS, SOC 2/3 compliant, and independently audited at least once every 12 months (SOC reports).

We also encrypt all data you transmit to VITR.AI, in transit and at rest.

We may update VITR.AI's security measures from time to time, for example by adding standards or replacing a compliance certification or SOC report with an equivalent or improved alternative, provided that such updates do not result in a significant reduction in VITR.AI's security.

Please be aware that while we take steps to ensure the security of VITR.AI, no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure. Due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that information, while transmitted over the Internet or stored on our system or in our custody, will be secure from intrusion by third parties. For this reason, we require platforms that use VITR.AI to transmit non-identifying information.

G. Third Party Policies

By using VITR.AI, you agree to be legally bound by the Google Cloud Platform and Vertex AI Terms of Service.

Upon termination:

  • all rights and licenses granted to you will terminate immediately;

Under no circumstances does VITR.AI guarantee the establishment of communication and the provision of services to users of platforms that use its content.

In the event that VITR.AI's content contains an error, which could, for example, result in the mismatch of a patient with a health content or service, you agree not to hold VITR.AI liable for any damages suffered by the patient, provider or content supplier, or for any damages that are claimed by these persons or entities.

You will not agree to any settlement that imposes an obligation on VITR.AI without its prior consent.

If you do not wish to be bound by the new Terms of Use, you must discontinue your use of VITR.AI and notify us immediately by sending us a notice to that effect within ten (10) days of receiving the notice.

These Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Quebec, and any dispute shall be submitted to a court of competent jurisdiction in Quebec. In the event that any particular provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such invalidity shall not affect the intent or scope of these Terms of Use.
