The Platform and the online services provided to help organize, store, and manage information related to your care or the care of your loved ones or other care recipients (the “Gherry Services”) are offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older. By using the Platform, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with the Company and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Platform.
- NO MEDICAL ADVICE
IF YOU ARE HAVING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, DIAL 911 IMMEDIATELY. We do not provide any medical or pharmaceutical advice. We are not health care providers. As a result, the Gherry Services are not intended to provide medical or pharmaceutical information or replace the advice of a healthcare professional. The Gherry Services are solely designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists with any physician, pharmacist and other healthcare professionals. What we do is provide a way for you to manage and take control of your caregiving duties and health care data.
When you register with us for access to the Gherry Services and successfully complete the account registration process you will become a “Member Administrator,” “Care Recipient,” or “Caregiver” of the Gherry Service (each such person, a “Member”). As a Member, you will have the opportunity to create one or more care profiles (“Profiles”) and to add information, data, and images to your Profile(s) (collectively, the “Profile Content”). A Profile will relate to the Care Recipient, which may by you or another individual. As a Member, you will have the opportunity to invite individuals who care for the Care Recipient (each, a “Caregiver”) to access the Care Recipient Profiles that you create or have administrator privileges over. Caregivers that you invite to access your Profile(s) will have partial or full access to Profile Content within your Profile(s) and may have the ability to add, delete, distribute, download, and edit the same. Because of the sensitive and private nature of your health care and the health care of those Care Recipients on whose behalf you may be creating a Profile, we recommend that you protect the private and sensitive information contained within your Profile(s) and consider carefully whether to permit any Member to access your Profiles. All Members are responsible for monitoring the Profile Content uploaded or added to their Profiles, whether uploaded by the Member who created such Profile(s) or by Members authorized to partially or fully view and/or edit the Profile Content.
If you are creating a Profile on behalf of another person, by accepting these terms you attest that you are authorized by that person to create a Profile on their behalf. To the extent you take action on behalf of the person you are caring for, you also attest that you have valid legal authority to take that action on their behalf.
Please note that you, and not Gherry, are responsible for maintaining and protecting all Profile Content. Gherry will not be liable to you for any loss or corruption of your Profile Content, or for any costs or expenses associated with backing up or restoring any of your Profile Content.
- ACCOUNT REGISTRATION
In order to access the Gherry Services, including to (i) create and manage a Profile and (ii) post any Profile Content through the Gherry Services, you must register to create an account (“Account”) and become a Member. Gherry reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current, or incomplete. You will be asked to create a password when you create your Account. Gherry does not have access to your passwords and if you forget your password you will be asked to create a new one. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Gherry if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account.
- GHERRY ADVISORS
We have a team of dedicated Gherry Advisors whose job is to support you in whatever way they can. By registering with us to access Gherry Services, you agree and accept that Gherry and the Gherry Advisors may contact you to discuss Gherry’s services as well as third party services and products Gherry may make available to you in connection with your health, care, and wellness.

- OTHER SERVICES
From time to time, we may present you with offers or promotions we believe to be helpful or relevant, which may be from us at Gherry or they may be from third parties. Certain of these offers may require you to share or enter additional information about you or your Care Recipient. You are responsible for managing the information you choose to share. Gherry is providing the platform through which these services can be coordinated and managed, and although we do our best to select the highest quality third party partners and providers, we are not responsible for the choices you make to share your private information, or the accuracy or quality of such third-party services. In that instance the Gherry Services are only a venue for you to access those third-party services and Gherry is not a party to, nor are we otherwise involved in any transactions entered into via or facilitated by the Gherry Services. Furthermore, Gherry is not liable or responsible for any dispute that arises between you and any third party.
In addition, Gherry will do its best to enable you to use the Gherry Service as a singular console through which these third-party services may be managed, including facilitating the delivery and receipt of communications between you and your healthcare providers, which may include but are not limited to pharmacies, physician’s offices, or other healthcare and care institutions. We cannot guarantee that we can or will be able to maintain our relationship with any particular third party. We also are not responsible for any of the service levels, availability, or quality of any such connections with third parties, and disclaim any responsibility for errors or miscommunication with the same. To the extent providing other services requires actions on your behalf, you consent to appointing Gherry as your agent as reasonably needed to facilitate those services.
