Please read this agreement. This agreement sets forth the terms upon which each individual is authorized to download, install, and use UPMC AnywhereCare on his or her computer, Apple iOS, or Android device.

The UPMC AnywhereCare service may only be used to request advice for non-emergency and non-urgent medical conditions. Do not use UPMC AnywhereCare if there is an emergency, urgent condition, or when you require an immediate answer. If you think you are experiencing a medical emergency, you should seek emergency medical services immediately or call 911.

Your use of UPMC AnywhereCare is conditioned upon your acceptance of these terms of use. Because this service is accessible via the UPMC website, you agree to abide by these terms of use, as well as those that are referenced hereinbelow.

By clicking the “I agree to these terms of use” box when completing an AnywhereCare account registration form, you agree to be bound by these AnywhereCare terms of use and the UPMC website terms and conditions, which are incorporated and made part of these terms of use by reference.

If you do not agree to these terms of use, you cannot establish a UPMC AnywhereCare account.

These terms of use, materials referenced in this document, and the content of the UPMC AnywhereCare website are subject to change at UPMC’s sole discretion. Any changes made are effective upon posting. It is your responsibility to review these terms of use each time you access the AnywhereCare website and mobile app, as you will be bound to any changes made. Each time you access the AnywhereCare website and mobile app you are confirming your acceptance of the terms of use as they appear at the time of your access. Please print and keep a copy of these terms of use for your records.

UPMC AnywhereCare is an online health care service (occasionally referred to herein as the “Service”). To access the Service, you must first enroll to establish an individual user account (“Account”), by providing certain information. You agree that you will not create more than one Account or create an account for anyone other than yourself, unless you are creating an account for an adult to whom you have proxy permissions in MyUPMC or a minor child of whom you are a parent or legal guardian. In creating an Account, you agree to: (i) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by our Account enrollment form; and (ii) each time you log on, maintain and promptly update such Account information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such Account information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and possess the legal right and ability, on behalf of yourself, an adult for whom you have proxy permissions through MyUPMC, or a minor child of whom you are a parent or legal guardian, to agree to these Terms of Use.

You hereby certify that you and the patient, if you are assisting a patient in obtaining UPMC AnywhereCare service, are physically located in the State you choose/have chosen as your current location. You acknowledge that your ability to access and use the Service is conditioned upon the truthfulness of this certification and that the providers you access are relying upon this certification in order to interact with you. In the event that your certification is inaccurate, you agree to indemnify UPMC, its affiliates and the providers you interact with from any resulting damages, costs, or claims. If you select Pennsylvania as your current location, you can select a UPMC-affiliated medical provider (“UPMC Provider”) who is licensed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for your virtual care visit. If you select a state other than Pennsylvania as your current location, you may select a provider employed or contracted by Online Care Network II, P.C. (“OCG Provider”) and licensed in the state that you are located for your virtual care visit. Online Care Network II, P.C. (“OCG”) is unaffiliated with UPMC.

Other than information received directly by you from providers, the content on the UPMC AnywhereCare website and mobile app should not be considered 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 on the AnywhereCare app or website represents or warrants that any particular medication or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you. Without limitation, UPMC does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, providers, medications, products, or procedures.

You agree not to access or use your Account or the Service in an unlawful way or for an unlawful or illegitimate purpose or in any manner that contravenes this Agreement. You shall not post, use, store, or transmit (a) a message or information under a false name; (b) information that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, fraudulent, predatory of minors, harassing, threatening, or hateful to any person; or (c) information that infringes or violates any of the intellectual property rights of others or the privacy or publicity rights of others. You shall not attempt to disrupt the operation of the Service by any method, including through use of viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, denial of service attacks, flooding, or spamming. You shall not use your Account in any manner that could damage, disable, or impair the Service. You shall not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any user accounts or computer systems or networks through hacking, password mining, or any other means. You shall not use any robot, scraper, or other means to access your Account and the Service for any purpose.

We give you permission to display, download, store, and print the content only for your personal, non-commercial use.

To the extent certain jurisdictions restrict any of the above limitations of liability, such limitations shall not apply in such jurisdictions to the extent of such restrictions. You acknowledge and agree that UPMC and its affiliates aggregate liability to you for any damages, losses, fees, charges, expenses, or liabilities, and in circumstances where the foregoing limitation is finally determined to be unavailable, shall not exceed the fee paid by you prior to the first occurrence of the subject damages, losses, fees, charges, expenses, or liabilities.

You agree to maintain and safeguard vigilantly the privacy and security of all Confidential Information. You shall implement and maintain appropriate safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all Confidential Information, to protect against reasonably anticipated threats or hazards, and to prevent use or disclosure of Confidential Information accessed through your Account other than as permitted by this Agreement or required by law. Such safeguards shall comply with all applicable federal, state, and local requirements and with security measures and controls that may be required from time to time by UPMC and its licensors and suppliers.

Without limiting the foregoing, you agree to undertake all necessary measures to ensure the privacy and security of all Confidential Information including, without limitation: (i) to use UPMC AnywhereCare and the Confidential Information only as needed to receive online care services; (ii) not to access, use or disclose any Confidential Information that you have no legitimate authorization to access, use or disclose; (iii) not to access UPMC AnywhereCare or any Confidential Information for any other individual or any unauthorized third party; (iv) to restrict physical and system access to your Account as well as any equipment which contains Confidential Information or which gives access to your Account; and (v) implementing procedures to ensure no computer or terminal with live access to your Account is left unattended at any time.
