Terms of Use

Last Updated: November 2023

These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) is a legal agreement between you and South Eastern Behavioral Health, a South Dakota nonprofit corporation, and its affiliates, subsidiaries, and divisions as may change from time to time (collectively, the “we,” “us,” and “our”). The Terms together with our Privacy Policy apply to our websites, mobile applications, and other digital and interactive services that link to the Terms (together, the “Services”).

You acknowledge and agree that, by accessing or using the Services, you, your heirs, and permitted assigns (collectively, “you”) are indicating that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the Terms. If you do not agree to the Terms, then you have no right to access or use the Services and should not continue doing so.

We may, from time to time, modify the Terms. Please check this page periodically for updates. Any changes will be posted on the Services. If you do not agree to, or cannot comply with, the modified Terms, you must stop using the Services. The updated Terms will take effect after their posting and will apply on a going-forward basis, unless otherwise provided in a notice to you. Your continued use of the Services after any such update constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes.

Additional terms may apply to your use of the Services. We will provide these terms to you or post them on the Services in connection with the features to which they apply; they are incorporated by reference into the Terms. For example, our Privacy Policy (which describes how we collect, use, and disclose your data and your consent to such collection, use, and disclosure) is incorporated by reference and is a part of the Terms. If there is a conflict between the Terms and any additional terms that apply to a particular feature of the Services, the additional terms will control, but only to the extent of the conflict.

Not Medical Advice

The information provided in the services is for educational purposes, is not to be used as the basis for treatment of any condition or illness and is not a substitute for professional medical advice. Always contact your physician or other qualified health provider prior to starting any new treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Nothing contained in the services is intended or implied to be for medical diagnosis or treatment. The services do not constitute an attempt to practice medicine nor does it establish a doctor-patient or hospital-patient relationship.

While the Services attempt to remain current, health care information changes rapidly and thus the Services should not be relied upon as comprehensive or error-free. The Services reserve the right to change this disclaimer or other terms and policies from time to time. You should not use this information to diagnose or treat health problems or as a substitute for a physician’s examination and advice.

If any of the provisions of the Terms are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction not to be enforceable, then such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to its subject matter. It may not be modified except as described elsewhere in the Terms. Anything in the Services inconsistent with or conflicting with the Terms is superseded by the Terms.
