The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us.

You understand that the Services are not medical or healthcare services, and that no physician-patient relationship exists.
YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT, BEFORE USING THE SERVICES, YOU WILL CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN, PARTICULARLY IF YOU ARE AT RISK FOR PROBLEMS RESULTING FROM PHYSICAL ACTIVITY OR EXERCISE OR LIFESTYLE CHANGES. You affirm that a physician has specifically approved your use of the Services. The Services are intended for use only by individuals healthy enough to perform physical activity and exercise, and are not intended for use by minors or individuals with any type of health condition that makes the kind of physical activity or exercise suggested by the Services unsafe or inappropriate. We reserve the right to deny you access to the Services for any reason or no reason, including if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have certain medical conditions.
The Company itself does not offer, and the Services do not constitute, medical or healthcare advice or services and no physician-patient relationship with the Company or any of its employees, officers, or agents is created or implied by you accessing or using the Service. The information and materials provided through the Services are provided purely for informational purposes. You should always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider who you personally know before starting, stopping, or modifying any treatment or medication.
You understand that the Services are not a substitute for emergency services.

Your call will be routed to the crisis center near you. If your issue is an emergency, call 911 immediately or go to your nearest emergency room. You acknowledge and understand that you should never delay seeking treatment from your primary care physician or other qualified healthcare professional.

Changes to the Service
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason, in our sole discretion, and without notice.
Bend may offer the opportunity to purchase access to the Service by means of one-time or recurring payments (“Subscription”) through an authorized Marketplace Provider. These payments require you to have an active account with a Marketplace Provider and provide a then-current and valid method of payment, such as a credit card or debit card (a "Payment Method"). Payments will be processed by your respective Marketplace Provider and not through Bend. Any inquiries related to payments should be directed to your Marketplace Provider. You are responsible for all charges incurred in connection with your payments.
We currently charge for the main features of the Service and reserve the right to charge for certain additional Services in the future. If you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services. Before using any portions of the Service that are available for a fee, you will be required to select a payment plan and provide information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay Company the amount that is specified in the payment plan in accordance with the terms of such plan and these Terms. You hereby authorize Company to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with the terms of the applicable payment plan until you terminate your account, and you further agree to pay any charges so incurred. If you dispute any charges you must let Company know within sixty (60) days after the date that Company charges you. We reserve the right to change Company’s prices. Your continued use of the Service after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than U.S. taxes based on Company’s net income.
Stop Using Service
Please uninstall the app if you would like to stop using the service. Bend is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. Company has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms. Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account. Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
The content included in the service should not be considered medical advice or a replacement or substitute for medical advice. You should always talk to an appropriately qualified health care professional for diagnosis and treatment, including information regarding which medications or treatment may be appropriate for you. None of the content represents or warrants that any particular medication or treatment (or lack thereof) is safe, appropriate, or effective for you.
You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that the Company may, in its sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for itself as it sees fit. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is 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 Company agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and Company, and that it supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms.
