- not a commercial licence – you can only access and use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial uses (i.e., not for your business);
- non-transferable – you can’t pass this right to someone else;
- non-exclusive – other people can access and use the Services;
- revocable – we have the right to remove your ability to use the Services in accordance with these Terms; and
- limited – the licence does not extend beyond what has just been described above.
- Certain Restrictions. The rights granted to you in these Terms are subject to a number of important restrictions, particularly relating to how you access and use the Services, Unmind’s property that is comprised, and available through the Services and other users’ User Content. In particular, you agree that your use of the Services is subject to the following restrictions:
ø you shall not license, sell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, host, or otherwise commercially exploit the Services, whether in whole or in part, or any content made available through the Services;
ø you shall not modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, reverse compile or reverse engineer any part of the Services, otherwise that as permitted by applicable law for interoperability purposes;
ø you shall not access the Services in order to build a similar or competitive website, product, or service; and
ø except as expressly stated in these Terms, you agree that no part of the Services may be copied, reproduced, distributed, republished, downloaded, displayed, posted or transmitted in any form or by any means.
- Unless otherwise indicated, any future release, update, or other addition to functionality or content of the Services shall be subject to these Terms. All copyright and other proprietary notices available through the Services (or on any content displayed and available via the Services) must be retained on all copies thereof.
- Modification. Unmind reserves the right, at any time, to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Services (in whole or in part). We may do this with or without notice to you. You agree that Unmind will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services or any part thereof.
- No Support or Maintenance. You acknowledge and agree that Unmind will have no obligation to provide you with any support or maintenance in connection with the Services. However, if a fault occurs in relation to usage of the systems and software supporting the Services, please report it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will review your complaint and, where we determine it is appropriate to do so, attempt to correct the fault. If the need arises, we may suspend access to the Services while we address the fault. We will not be liable to you if the Services are unavailable for the period of time it takes to fix or attempt to fix such fault. Your access to the Services may be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or solutions.
- Ownership. Excluding any User Content (this term is defined below) that you may provide, you acknowledge that all the intellectual property rights, including copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets, available via the Services and its content are owned by Unmind, Unmind’s suppliers or, in the case of other users’ User Content, other users of the Services. Neither these Terms (nor your access to the Services) transfers to you or any third party any rights, ownership or similar interests in or to such intellectual property rights, except for the limited access rights expressly set forth in this policy. Unmind and its suppliers reserve all rights not granted in these Terms. There are no implied licences granted under these Terms.
- Providers. In order to provide you with the Services, Unmind and/or its affiliated entities may contract with independent health care professionals, coaches, or other providers (“Providers”).
- Resources. Our Services can also provide you with education and self-care resources addressing skill-building, meditations, and other activities. Our team may assist you in the process of connecting with Providers, and sometimes, if and when appropriate, a member of our team may directly provide you with guidance and education about obtaining Services. We may also help you to track the course of your progress as you work with your Provider.
- No Professional Advice. No licensed medical professional/patient relationship is created by using information and/or services provided by or through the use of the Services or through any other communications from us. The Services enable coordination and direct communication with a Provider. Unmind, itself, does not provide medical or health advice, care diagnosis, or treatment, and the content of the site and the Services are not and should not be considered medical advice or substitute for individual medical advice (including clinical therapy advice), diagnosis or treatment. For clarity, any patient-provider relationship between you and any provider will be established separately and directly with such Provider. Unmind is not a party to any such relationships and each Provider is solely responsible for the delivery of any opinions you receive through your access to and use of the Services. Each provider is responsible for the decisions and services they provide.
- Provider Turnover. Similar to other networks of professionals, there is some turnover in our Provider network throughout the year. Providers may leave the network at any time for a variety of reasons, including voluntary withdrawal or refusal to comply with policies and procedures, and therefore may no longer be available to be available through our Services. If your Provider will no longer be in our network, our team can support you in exploring alternative options, including connecting you to an alternative Provider. You, however, are ultimately responsible for choosing your own Provider.
- No Guarantee. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we make no representation, warranty, guarantee or condition as to whether you will find the Provider’s services relevant, useful, correct, satisfactory, or suitable to your needs, or that Providers’ skills, degrees, qualifications, licenses, certifications, credentials, competence or background will meet your needs.
6. User content
- Confidentiality. Unmind takes confidentiality extremely seriously and will keep User Data secure and confidential and shall procure that its personnel (including its officers, directors, staff and employees) shall keep User Data secure and confidential. Neither Unmind nor its personnel shall disclose User Data or any element of it to a third party except (1) where you provide express written consent; (2) to the extent that Unmind is compelled by law or regulation (in which circumstances Unmind will provide prompt notice to you so that you have reasonable opportunity to obtain a protective order or other remedy); (3) in relation to any feedback which you provide to Unmind about the operation of its services, in which case the User Data comprising feedback may be disclosed in accordance with the terms of the below section “Do not send us confidential information in Feedback”; and (4) in circumstances where you breach the terms set out below in relation to (i) “Protection of our reputation and third party rights” and (ii) “Protection of our systems”, we may disclose User Data to a third party but only to the extent that such disclosure of User Data is reasonable, proportionate and necessary in the circumstances to enforce our rights and such disclosure shall be strictly limited to the third parties set out below in “How might we enforce these Terms if you violate them?”.

- How might we enforce these Terms if you violate them?

Examples of action that we might take are: removing or modifying your User Content, terminating your Account in accordance with Section 9, and/or reporting you to an affiliated organisation (e.g. employer, academic institution, governing body) and/or law enforcement authorities.
- Feedback. If you provide Unmind with any feedback or suggestions regarding the Services (“Feedback”), you hereby transfer to Unmind all rights in such Feedback. You also agree that Unmind shall have the right to use and fully exploit such Feedback and related information in any manner it considers appropriate.
- Do not send us confidential information in Feedback. Please note that the Feedback you provide to Unmind will not be treated as confidential information – accordingly, you agree not to submit to Unmind any information or ideas that you consider to be confidential or proprietary.
7. Third-party links and ads: other users
- Third-Party Links. The Services may contain links to third-party websites and affiliated services (collectively, “Third-Party Links”). Where you encounter links to Third-Party Links, these links are provided for your information and convenience only. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources. Unmind does not review, approve, endorse or make any promises with respect to Third-Party Links.
- You use Third-Party Links at your own risk. You use all Third-Party Links at your own risk and you should apply a suitable level of caution and discretion in doing so. When you click on any of the Third-Party Links, the applicable third party’s terms and policies apply, not these Terms.

8. Our responsibility for loss or damage
- Our Services are not bespoke to you. You acknowledge that the Services provided are not developed to meet your individual requirements, and that it is therefore your responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the Services meet your requirements.
- We are not providing medical advice. Unmind is a provider of online and mobile content in the mental health & wellness space. We are not a medical device provider, nor should the content, information offered by a Provider, or information provided through use of our Services be considered medical advice – only your doctor or other appropriate healthcare provider can do that. While there is third party evidence from research that the content we provide can assist in the prevention and recovery process for a wide array of conditions as well as in improving some performance and relationship issues, Unmind makes no promises that the Services will provide a therapeutic benefit. If you choose to submit details about your mental wellbeing through our Services, the information returned is on the basis of general healthcare information and not as personalised health advice for you specifically. Any health information or link available through the Services, whether provided by Unmind or by a third party provider, is provided simply for your convenience.
- Any advice or other materials made available through the Services are intended for general information purposes only. We provide information via our Services, such as our Unmind Index and Check-In functionalities. The output from these does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. They provide information to you based on information entered. They do not diagnose your own health condition or make treatment recommendations for you. They are not intended to be relied upon and are not a substitute for professional medical advice based on your individual condition and circumstances. The advice and other materials we make available are not intended to replace or supplement your healthcare providers’ guidance. You shouldn’t take or stop taking any action (such as taking medicines) based on information from our information services. You should always talk to a qualified medical professional about any questions you may have about a medical condition. If you think you have a medical emergency, you should call your doctor or the emergency services immediately. We make no promises and are not liable about the accuracy, completeness, or suitability for any purpose of the advice, other materials and information published as part of our Services. We make no warranties in relation to the output of our Services. If you contact us through the “Help” section available as part of our Services and correspond with a member of Unmind’s support department, please be aware that, unless they tell you otherwise, the people responding to your request for help are not doctors or professional medical advisors. We do however have clinical psychologists on our team, and we will let you know if you are talking to, or interacting with, such clinical psychologists. We do not guarantee the availability of any particular staff member at any particular time. We do not tolerate abuse or offensive behaviour towards our staff. There have been rare reports where people with certain psychiatric problems have experienced worsening conditions in conjunction with intensive meditation practice. People with existing mental health conditions should speak with their existing health care provider(s) before starting a meditation practice and/or using our Services.
- We are responsible to you only for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking these Terms or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time these Terms are entered into both we and you knew it might happen.
- We are not liable for business losses. As noted above, we only make our Services available for your domestic and private use. If you use the Services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
- No liability for User Content. We do not control User Content, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any User Content, and in particular the content of any Praise, whether provided by you or by others. We make no guarantees regarding the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of any User Content.
- No liability for user interactions. Your interactions with other users of the Services (for instance, through the use of Praise) are solely between you and such users. We do not control your interactions with other Users, you agree that Unmind will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions.
- No liability for damage caused by unauthorised access. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as a result of unauthorised access to your Account which is not within our reasonable control, including where you fail to comply with Section 4.
- What we do not exclude. Nothing in these Terms shall limit or exclude our liability for:
- death or personal injury resulting from our negligence;
- fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
- any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by English law.
9. Term and termination
- Duration of Terms. Subject to this Section 9, these Terms will remain in full force and effect while you use the Services.
- When we might suspend or terminate your Account or use of Services. We may suspend or terminate your rights to use the Services (including your Account and all associated User Data) at any time for any reason at our sole discretion, including for any use of the Services in violation of these Terms.
- What happens when these Terms terminate? Upon termination of your rights under these Terms, your Account and right to access and use the Services will terminate immediately. You understand that any termination of your Account may involve deletion of your User Content associated with your Account from our live databases – for this reason, we recommend you pay particular attention to Section 6 (Backing up User Content).
- What terms will continue after these Terms have been terminated? Even after your rights under these Terms are terminated, the following provisions of these Terms will remain in effect: Sections 2 to 10.
10. Other important terms
- Headings and Interpretation. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means “including without limitation”.
- We may transfer these Terms to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation – for example, this could include another member of our group of companies or someone who buys our business. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under these Terms.
- Nobody else has any rights under these Terms. These Terms are between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
- If a court finds part of these Terms illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the Sections of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining Sections will remain in full force and effect.
- Even if we delay in enforcing these Terms, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking these Terms, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
- Which laws apply to these Terms and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and we both agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. This means that, if you are a citizen of a country in the EU, you may bring a claim to enforce your consumer protection rights in connection with these Terms in England or in the EU country in which you live.
