Please take a moment to read these Terms carefully before subscribing to or using any of the Services. These Terms are a legal contract between AX-IT LLC, specifically Axit Health (“Axit Health” or “We”) and each Organization or Individual who uses the Services and are accepted by subscribing to The Platform or by otherwise using our websites and resources. “You,” “you,” “Organizations,” “Individuals,” and “users” shall mean all health service providers, organizations and their agents, as well as Individuals who use the Services. You accept these Terms by clicking the “ACCEPT” checkbox when you download or install the Services, when you agree to them by using our website at axithealth.com, and each time you access the Services thereafter. If you do not accept these Terms, you must not use the Services.
In these Terms, we use the word “Subscriber” to refer to anyone (for example, a health clinic, health practitioner, school, sports organization, Individual) who subscribes to and pays for The Platform. At present, the cost to an Individual who registers on The Platform for personal use is $0.00. The cost may change, without previous notice, for the Individual in the future. We use the word “You” to refer to any individual user of our Services, such as a practitioner or staff member at an Organization, or an Individual using the Axit Health mobile app, Web Portal or our websites and resources.

Paid Subscriptions (Organizations)
Subscription. You can subscribe to The Platform by signing up for one of our subscription plans and paying the applicable fees. Subscriptions run on a monthly basis. Fees are charged monthly in advance in accordance with the billing information provided by you at the time of subscription. Account Representatives (defined below) may update their Subscriber’s billing information or cancel their Subscriber’s subscription at any time by sending an email to email@example.com. Except as set forth below under Termination, all fees are non-refundable. Subscriptions and fees may be increased to match increases in your platform usage over time.
Availability of the Services. Once a Subscriber has subscribed and paid, Axit Health will make the Services available to the Subscriber’s users (i.e, practitioners, staff, patients, parents, students (Individuals who you have registered or who have shared or affiliated themselves to you)) for the subscription plan purchased. Axit Health will make the Services available in accordance with our Service Level Agreement (“SLA”); however, please note that Axit Health cannot be responsible for any unavailability of the Services caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as internet outages, power outages or issues with your computer systems or devices.
Limitations. Our websites and resources are provided for general information about Axit Health services. They may not always be accurate or complete and are not intended to provide legal advice. We recommend that Subscribers obtain their own guidance and advice with respect to regulatory and legal compliance. Content and resources on our websites may be varied or discontinued from time to time.
Account Representative. The Individual registering herself/himself on The Platform or the person signing up for a subscription on behalf of an Organization is the “Account Representative” and will be authorized to administer the account for the Subscriber. In an Organization, this includes authorizing additional user accounts for practitioners and/or staff, and granting and revoking user access rights and permissions. Each Subscriber will have only one (1) Account Representative. All questions about a Subscriber’s subscription and its user account(s) should be directed to the Account Representative. A Subscriber may change its Account Representative by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
User Accounts. (for Organizations) Subscribers and their users must provide accurate, current and complete information when creating their user accounts. Subscribers are responsible for all activities that occur under their user accounts and for any issues, claims or disputes arising out of the conduct of their users. Subscribers must take appropriate steps to protect their user accounts, including:
- Requiring users to set strong passwords
- Keeping user ID’s and passwords confidential
- Not providing any false identity information to access the Services
Axit Health will not be liable for any losses or damages caused by a Subscriber’s failure to maintain the confidentiality of its user accounts and its account credentials or for the Individual to do the same on their personal account (PHR). If you discover or suspect any unauthorized access to or use of your Subscriber or user account, please reset your password immediately and notify us at email@example.com.
Subscriber Data (Organizations)
Ownership and Control. Each Subscriber retains ownership and control of its patient data and all information collected, entered, created or otherwise provided by the Subscriber and its users in the course of using the Services (“Subscriber Data”). Subscribers may be referred to as a “health information custodian”, a “covered entity” or a “controller” depending on their location and the privacy laws applicable to them. Subscribers are responsible for ensuring that their collection and use of Subscriber Data complies with applicable laws and regulatory requirements.
Each Subscriber determines:
- What Subscriber Data to collect;
- How the Subscriber will use the Subscriber Data;
- Which practitioners and/or staff have access to Subscriber Data;
- How long the Subscriber will store Subscriber Data; and
- On what basis the Subscriber will delete Subscriber Data.
Storage and Access. Axit Health is the Owner of the data stored in the PHR as well as a service provider to Subscribers and may be referred to as an “agent”, “business associate” or “processor” of the Subscriber. Axit Health will keep Subscriber Data stored securely as described below under Security. Axit Health will only access Subscriber Data at the request of a Subscriber or its users, or where needed in order to prevent or address technical problems affecting the Services or if required by law, regulation or court order. As we otherwise have no control over Subscriber Data, we are not responsible for incorrect, incomplete, lost or damaged Subscriber Data, except to the extent it is caused by our failure to meet our obligations under these Terms.
HIPAA / GDPR Compliance. If a Subscriber is subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), we will, upon request, enter into our Business Associate Agreement (“BAA”) with the Subscriber. Please Contact Us to request a copy of our BAA. If a Subscriber is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the terms of our Data Processing Addendum will apply and are incorporated into these Terms.
FERPA Compliance. The parties acknowledge that Subscriber Data may include personally identifiable information from education records that are subject to FERPA (“FERPA Records”); and that, to the extent that Subscriber Data may include FERPA records, Axit Health will be considered a “School Official” (as that term is used in FERPA and its implementing regulations) and will comply with FERPA.
Questions About Subscriber Data. If you have any questions about your Subscriber Data, please contact your Account Representative. If an Account Representative has any questions about the management of Subscriber Data in the Services, the Account Representative may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anonymized/Aggregated Data. Axit Health may use computer-generated algorithms to gather anonymous and aggregated information from Subscriber Data in order to assist in our continued development and improvement of the Services, and for research, data analysis, benchmarking, statistics or trend analysis. We will ensure that none of the information we gather identifies, or could be used to identify, any user, Individual or patient. Axit Health may share such anonymized information with Subscribers and others, for example, by providing insights into most common conditions, most popular treatments or benchmarking fees against industry or regional norms.
Safeguards. Axit Health will maintain industry-standard administrative, physical and technical safeguards to prevent the unauthorized access, use or disclosure of Subscriber Data processed through or stored in the Services. These safeguards include, but are not limited to, security policies and training for our personnel, access controls, minimum security certifications and practices for our data centers, PCI-compliant payment processors and encryption.
Security Breach. Axit Health will notify affected Subscribers if Axit Health determines that the security of the Services has been breached and this results in Subscriber Data being accessed by or disclosed to an individual or entity who is not authorized to access or receive such information. Axit Health will report to the affected Subscriber(s) on the corrective action being taken in response to such security breach and will reasonably cooperate with such Subscriber(s) in mitigating the effects of any lost or compromised Subscriber Data.
Your Responsibility. Subscribers and their users will notify Axit Health immediately if they become aware of any unauthorized use of their account(s), of any user ID and password, or any other known or suspected breach of security.
Data Retention Policy
During Your Subscription Term. Our Platform is designed to retain, protect and preserve the integrity of Subscriber Data in order to assist our Subscribers with their regulatory and compliance obligations around patient records. As a result, we will not delete Subscriber Data during your subscription term, unless there is a regulatory or legal requirement to do so. If you have such a requirement, please have your Account Representative contact us at email@example.com.
Data Export. Subscribers may export their Subscriber Data at any time and should do so prior to ceasing or terminating their use of our Platform. Practitioners who change practices may also arrange with their Account Representative for export of their patient data. Contact us for assistance.
After Termination. When a subscription expires or is terminated, the Organization account is deactivated. This means the Organization account and any Subscriber Data associated with the account is no longer available for use and cannot be accessed through the internet. The Organization itself will no longer appear in the Platform’s directory of Organizations. The organization account and its Subscriber Data will be retained in the event the Subscriber wishes to re-activate the account. We will store Subscriber Data securely and isolate it from any further processing while it is deactivated. Active Individual accounts still affiliated to the Organization may continue to be updated with activity outside of the Subscriber’s Data.
The Organization’s Account Representatives may contact us with questions about their Subscriber Data. Please note that, in order to maintain strict security of Subscriber Data, we cannot take instructions from anyone other than the Account Representative.
Overdue Fees. If any fees are more than 30 days overdue, we may, without limiting our other rights and remedies, suspend or terminate access to the Services until the overdue amounts are paid in full. We will provide at least 7 days prior notice that fees are overdue before we do this, and we will not exercise this right if the Subscriber is disputing the applicable fees reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
Termination by Us. Axit Health may terminate or suspend access to the Services, or suspend or deactivate a Subscriber’s or a user’s account, if the Subscriber or user breaches any obligations under these Terms. Axit Health may also terminate a Subscriber’s subscription if Axit Health discontinues the Services. We will use our best efforts to notify you in advance of any suspension or termination and help Subscriber’s retrieve their Subscriber Data; however, there may be some cases where we need to suspend access immediately in order to prevent harm to others.
Refunds. If a Subscriber terminates its subscription due to a breach by Axit Health or Axit Health discontinues the Services, we will refund any fees you had pre-paid for the remaining unused portion of your subscription term. If Axit Health terminates a Subscriber’s subscription due to a breach by the Subscriber, the Subscriber will not be entitled to any refund and must pay any unpaid fees for the remaining unused portion of the subscription term.
Termination does not relieve a Subscriber of its obligation to pay fees for any period prior to the effective date of termination.
