Please read these Terms carefully and in their entirety before using the Services. They cover important information about Services provided to you and any charges, taxes, and fees we may bill you. These Terms include information about future changes to these Terms, limitations of liability, a class action waiver and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court.
ARBITRATION NOTICE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SECTION BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
- The Basics of Using Achieve Health and Weight Loss.
To use many of the Services, you may be required to sign up for a user account, select a password and username (“Achieve User ID”), and provide us with certain information, such as your contact information. You promise to provide us with accurate, complete and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as an Achieve User ID a name that you do not have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission.
You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age in your state of residence to enter into a binding contract. If you are using or participating in the Program as a personal representative of another person as such person’s parent, guardian, conservator or custodian (“Family Member”), you agree to these Terms on behalf of such Family Member and you represent and warrant that you have legal authority to do so and to provide consent for the treatment of the Family Member.
You may only use the Services for your own internal, personal, non-commercial use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. Achieve (defined below) operate subject to state and federal regulations, and some Services may not be available in your state or country. You represent that you are not a person barred from enrolling for and/or receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdictions in which you may be located. Access to and use of the Services is limited exclusively to users located in states within the United States where the Services are available. Accessing the Services from jurisdictions where content is illegal, or where we do not offer Services, is prohibited. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.
You will not share your Achieve User ID, account or password with anyone, and you must also protect the security of your Achieve User ID, account, password and any other access tools or credentials. You are responsible for any activity associated with your Achieve User ID and account. You must notify Achieve promptly of any unauthorized use of your Achieve User ID by emailing email@example.com.
- Description of the Program.
Providers provide certain health care services via the Program using interactive audio, video, messaging and other communication and media technologies through the Services. Coaches may also provide non-clinical wellness related services through the Program.
You may have an opportunity to develop ongoing care relationships with Providers; however, your initial encounter may begin as a consultation (e.g., to determine the appropriateness for you to participate in a Program) and will not necessarily give rise to an ongoing treatment relationship with any particular Provider. For example, a Provider may determine that the Program is not appropriate for you or all of your treatment needs, and any Provider may elect to not provide certain clinical services or otherwise provide the Program to you through the Services. Your Provider reserves the right to deny care for potential misuse of the Program or for any other reason including if, in the professional judgment of your Provider, the provision of the Program is not medically or ethically appropriate.
As part of providing clinical services, Providers may order lab, imaging and other diagnostic tests, to be conducted at locations outside of the Practices, including clinical laboratories and testing centers. In addition, Providers may prescribe prescriptions for medications available from pharmacies separate from the Practices. In each case, you may incur additional costs related to such tests or prescriptions. Providers may also rely on information and materials you provide through the Services, including information and materials you may have received from your other health care providers.
In order to use or otherwise participate in the Program, you must agree to the Consent to Telehealth and acknowledge receipt of the Notice of Privacy Practices. Your ability to use or participate in the Program may require you to agree to additional terms and conditions, including but not limited to the Membership Terms & Conditions (for non-employer programs) and those related to third party (e.g. pharmaceutical manufacturers’) products and services. Although you may be required to accept such third party terms and conditions, you cannot obligate Achieve, a Practice, or any Provider to such terms and conditions.
THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A HEALTH INSURANCE PRODUCT AND DOES NOT MEET ANY INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE MANDATE THAT MAY BE REQUIRED BY FEDERAL LAW, INCLUDING THE FEDERAL PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. THIS AGREEMENT COVERS ONLY LIMITED ROUTINE HEALTH CARE SERVICES AS DESCRIBED HEREIN. The Program consists of a direct health care service; for clarity, it is not health insurance. Practices do not bill or otherwise engage or participate with federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. A Provider) may recommend that you obtain services not offered by the Practices (such as, for example, specialty services or diagnostic tests), but in no event will any Practice be responsible for the charges for any such tests or services. If you have health insurance, it is your responsibility to understand your benefits and whether your insurance might cover any recommended tests or services. Achieve makes no representations or warranties related to whether your insurance company will make any payment on or otherwise reimburse in any manner any fees or other costs or expenses you incur in connection with the Program or any other services you may obtain.
- Messaging and Electronic Communications.

By signing up for the Services and providing us with your wireless number, you confirm that you want Achieve send you information that we think may be of interest to you. Achieve may use automated dialing technology to text you at the wireless number you provided, and you agree to receive communications from Achieve. In addition, you represent and warrant that each Family Member on whose behalf you register for the Services or for whom you provide a wireless phone number has consented to receive communications from Achieve. You agree to indemnify, and hold Achieve harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to your breach of the foregoing.

Achieve may contact you by telephone, mail, text, or email regarding the Program or the Services or to verify your information, which may include your or your Family Member’s health information.

You agree to update your contact information to ensure accuracy.

(1) Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements. If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes your copyright (or the copyright of someone whom you are authorized to act on behalf of), please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to Achieve ’s Designated Agent:
(a) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
(b) Identification of works or materials being infringed;

(c) terminate such individual’s access to the Services if they are a repeat offender.
(3) Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent. If the individual accused of copyright infringement believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider may send us a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent:
(a) A physical or electronic signature of the content provider;
(b) Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
(c) A statement that the content provider has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
(d) Content provider’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Achieve may, in its discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Achieve may replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it within 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider accused of committing infringement, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Achieve ’s discretion.

YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY ACHIEVE (AND THEIR RESPECTIVE LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

- Limitation of Liability.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL ANY OF THE ACHIEVE PARTIES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, (B) ANY SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY, (C) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF (I) ONE-HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID AND/OR PAYABLE BY YOU TO ACHIEVE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THIS APPLICABLE CLAIM OR (D) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR CERTAIN OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
YOU SHALL AND HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542 OR ANY SIMILAR LAW OF ANY JURISDICTION, WHICH SAYS IN SUBSTANCE THAT “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”
You agree to indemnify and hold the Achieve Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any claims relating to: (a) your use or misuse of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using your account); (b) your violation of these Terms; (c) the content or subject matter of any information (including without limitation User Information) you provide to any Achieve Party (including without limitation any customer service agent); (d) any negligent or wrongful act or omission by you in your use or misuse of the Services, including without limitation, infringement of third party intellectual property rights, privacy rights, or negligent or wrongful conduct; and/or (e) your failure to comply with any applicable laws or regulations.

Achieve may freely transfer, assign, or delegate all or any part of these Terms and any rights and obligations at any time. These Terms will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the heirs, successors, and permitted assigns of parties.
- Choice of Law.
These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the State of New York, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND ACHIEVE WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. You and Achieve are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Achieve over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND ACHIEVE WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
(e) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor Achieve is entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in (g) below.
(f) Opt-out.

- Updates to these Terms.
We are constantly trying to improve the Services, so these Terms may need to change along with our Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will place a notice through the Services, send you an email, and/or notify you by some other means. If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
All provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following terms will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay or indemnify Achieve , any limitations on Achieve ’s liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between Achieve and you, including without limitation the arbitration agreement. You are responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services. The failure of either you or Achieve to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Except as expressly set forth in the sections above regarding the Apple Application and the Arbitration Agreement, you and Achieve agree there are no third-party beneficiaries intended under these Terms. If any provision of these Terms are found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. You and Achieve agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and Achieve , and that these Terms supersede and cancel all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you are not an agent of Achieve, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Achieve in any respect whatsoever.
