II. PURPOSE OF THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
The purpose of the General Terms and Conditions of Use is to define the conditions under which the App and the services provided by the App and that are the exclusive property of the Eczema Foundation are used, which Users tacitly accept when they consult them. The Eczema Foundation asks Users to exit the App if they do not accept the General Terms and Conditions of Use.
To use the App, Users must read and unconditionally accept all of the General Terms and Conditions of Use when they create their Profile. When Users click on "I agree", they confirm their acceptance of the General Terms and Conditions of Use. Users who refuse to accept the General Terms and Conditions of Use may not use the App.
The General terms and Conditions of Use are available at all times at http://poscorad.com/.
The App must be used and consulted exclusively for personal and non-commercial purposes. Users must refrain from using all or part of the App for illegal purposes (copyright) or any purpose that breaches the General Terms and Conditions of Use.
The General Terms and Conditions of Use apply to any User who connects to the App.
III. PURPOSE OF THE APP
The App was created to provide Users with information on eczema and its clinical signs. The purpose of the App is to rapidly and regularly evaluate the status of the disease by establishing an evolving curve of the patient's eczema based on their Scores.
All of the App's texts and drawings are prepared with the assistance of Professor Jean-François Stalder in the framework of the MADE (Mapping Atopic Dermatitis Expression) project. The drawings belong to the Eczema Foundation.
(Hereafter the "Information").
Users undertake to use the App in accordance with the purpose described in the General Terms and Conditions of Use, not to misuse the App and not to attempt to divert Users to another service.
The App does not constitute a contractual offer.
The App and the SCORAD/PO-SCORAD Index do not provide medical advice, are not a tool to diagnose eczema and in no way constitute a substitute for a medical visit which, alone, can allow for a diagnosis to be made and a treatment protocol to be put in place suited to each individual's needs. The SCORAD/PO-SCORAD Index is calculated based on Scores resulting from self-evaluations. The PO-SCORAD Index is therefore the result of self-evaluation scoring that provides an overview of the severity of the eczema.
The App's Information must not be used to provide a medical opinion and replace a visit to a healthcare professional. The Information the App provides is intended to improve - not replace - the relationship that exists between a patient and his or her doctor.
Similarly, this Information must not be interpreted as a recommendation to use products without a doctor's advice.
As the App is updated by taking all of the activities into account, some new Information or announcements may no longer be valid when they are displayed or they may simply be out of date. The Eczema Foundation cannot guarantee that all of the Information displayed on the App is perfectly up to date, although it makes every effort in this regard.
Furthermore, the App cannot be construed as a contractual offer and does not allow any form of advertising. The App is fully financed by the Eczema Foundation.
IV. INFORMATION ON THE APP
The Information is made available to Users by the App; this does not in any way constitute a transfer of any property right related to the Information. Users have simply been granted a free, personal, non-exclusive, revocable, non-marketable, non-transferable right to use the App and the Information throughout the world for the legal period of the intellectual property rights, solely for their own needs in the framework of the use of the App and for no other use.
Users may not access and/or use the App's source codes.
The Information is provided for information only and is not contractual.
The Eczema Foundation does not guarantee the accuracy and exhaustiveness of the Information made available on the App; the Eczema Foundation will make the corresponding rectifications. The Information displayed may also have been the subject of updates between the time Users saw it and the time they read it. The Eczema Foundation in no way guarantees that the Information is accurate, complete and up to date.
The Eczema Foundation accepts no liability for the direct or indirect consequences and/or damage caused by a defect to or pirating of the Information. Furthermore, the Eczema Foundation does not have a performance obligation, but only an obligation of means (obligation de moyens) regarding the Information provided to Users.
Finally, the Eczema Foundation gives no explicit or implicit guarantee and declines all liability relative to the use of this Information. This Information is provided for information only.
For additional information and/or queries, Users may write to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
V. HOW TO ACCESS THE APP
The App is a free mobile application that can be downloaded from Apple Store and Google Play, and is intended to be used on mobile terminals on iOS or Android-compatible terminals, and/or in a PC or Mac version which is available at scorad.org and poscorad.com
To download the App, the User must have appropriate Hardware and high-speed internet access, a telephone package with internet access for a computer/tablet/mobile phone compatible with the App, such as a smartphone (IOS, Android), a WAP connection, wifi and/or 3G/4G.
With the exception of the email feature, the App works offline.
When using the App, Users must refrain from hindering or disrupting the proper operation of the App, the servers and the networks connected to the App and/or from modifying, adapting or pirating the App and/or from modifying an app or website of a third party thereby creating a confusion regarding its link to the App.
Users are aware of the constraints and limitations of the internet and telecommunication networks, and therefore undertake to:
Protect their Hardware from any form of virus, attempt to electronically intrude, and unauthorized access and/or use by third parties;
Ensure the conditions under which their Hardware is installed, operates and is maintained allow the App to function properly.
1.2. To access the App and use the SCORAD Tool, Users must first create a Profile:
Using the form provided for this purpose, by filling in the personal information requested: last name, first name, date of birth and skin type (Caucasian, Asian or dark).
By evaluating all of the signs (surface affected by the eczema) and subjective symptoms requested (intensity).
Users alone are responsible for the truthfulness, consistency and exhaustiveness of the information provided in their Profiles.
Users may then save the SCORAD or PO-SCORAD Index in their Profiles, and the Index may then be sent by email or exported.
1.3. Only App Users may access their Profile.
Users may delete their Profile and any personal information at any time, it being noted that, if Users send their Score(s) to their doctor or a third party, their information will not be deleted from their doctor's or the third party's Hardware.
1.4. By using the App, Users agree to refrain from:
- Using the App for political, propaganda or proselytical purposes;
- Publishing advertising or promotional content;
- Diverting the App from its purpose;
- Publishing information or content that may offend the sensibilities of younger Users;
- Conducting illegal activities, in particular by violating the rights of holders related to the software, trademarks, photographs, images, texts, videos, etc.;
- Advertising or inciting other Users to use another service, whether or not said service is in competition with the App;
- Causing harm in any way to the functioning of the App;
- Violating intellectual property laws;
- Violating the laws and regulations in force.
Furthermore, Users undertake not to use the Information and App to attract customers or promote a product, service, healthcare institution, business or organization of any type or, in general, for any advertising or promotional purpose.
1.5. Then using the PO-SCORAD App, Healthcare Professional Users must comply with professional and ethical rules applicable to their profession and to said User.
The Eczema Foundation recommends Healthcare Professional Users indicate in the patient's medical file that they use the PO-SCORAD App. Healthcare Professional Users are responsible for all of the Scores they enter into the PO-SCORAD App and the Profiles they create. Healthcare Professional Users acknowledge the fact that they are solely responsible for the decisions they make regarding their patients' health. The Eczema Foundation will therefore not be held liable for the medical opinions issued by Healthcare Professional Users regarding cases of eczema or any other cases.
If Healthcare Professional Users enter personal data into the PO-SCORAD App, they are responsible for the formalities to be fulfilled pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (GDPR). Healthcare Professional Users must comply with the laws and regulations in force regarding the processing, and more particularly the hosting, of patient data.
When applicable, Healthcare Professional Users must take all required precautions relative to security and confidentiality if they wish to transmit the Personal Information, in accordance with their professional obligations, including in the case of clinical studies.
1.6. Regarding the conduct of clinical studies, Healthcare Professional and Industry users must (i) fill in the related declaration form and send their request to the following address: email@example.com, (ii) adhere to the "SCORAD Tool Users' Charter" for clinical studies, which define mandatory rules, and (iii) comply therewith. Regardless of the clinical study conducted, Healthcare Professional and Industry Users must comply with the legal obligations that apply to the protection of personal information.
VI. GUARANTEES AND LIABILITY
Use of the App is under their sole and entire responsibility of users. Users undertake to use the App in accordance with its purpose.
The Eczema Foundation guarantees that the content of the App complies with the laws of France in effect and industry standards applicable to websites.
The Eczema Foundation guarantees Users will benefit from the undisturbed enjoyment of the App and, in particular, that the App does not violate any third party intellectual property right and that it is original.
Users undertake not to voluntarily or even involuntarily introduce a virus, bug or file of any nature whatsoever that disrupts the functioning of the App, for which they would be held fully and exclusively liable if such an introduction were to occur.
To ensure respect for all individuals, the Eczema Foundation may take legal action against disrespectful Users.
Users declare and guarantee that they are perfectly aware of the characteristics and constraints of the internet and, in particular, that the transmission of data and information on the internet is not 100% reliable from a technical perspective, and therefore that data and information circulate on heterogeneous networks with different technical specifications and capabilities, which disrupt or impede access at certain times.
The Eczema Foundation may not be held liable for any damage that results from a connection to the App or the use of the App by a User.
Regarding clinical studies: The Eczema Foundation does not accept any liability for potential prejudice that Users may suffer as a result of their use of the App.
The Eczema Foundation may not be held liable for errors, omissions, viruses or results that could be obtained due to improper use of the Information and services provided by the App. The Eczema Foundation is in fact only bound by a simple obligation of means (obligation de moyens).
The Eczema Foundation, the executives and the employees of PIERRE FABRE DERMO-COSMETIQUE may not be held liable for:
Any damage whatsoever that results from a connection to, access to or use of the App;
Damage that results directly or indirectly from a consultation of the App or the use of Information available on said App;
Direct or indirect damage resulting from the use of the App and, in particular, any loss of functionality, financial or commercial loss or loss of the App or of data in any information system, even if the Eczema Foundation was aware that such damage could occur.
The Eczema Foundation may in no case be held liable for a loss of Information or any damage related to said Information.
B. APP MODIFICATIONS OR DELETION
The Eczema Foundation endeavours to maintain accessibility to the App 24/7 but is not bound by an obligation to do so. The Eczema Foundation may therefore interrupt access thereto, in particular to perform maintenance and updates.
The Eczema Foundation reserves the right to modify or delete the App without notice, and it may not be held liable in this regard. The deletion or modification of the App in no way results in Users being entitled to any compensation or damages.
VII. PERSONAL DATA
No personal information on Users is collected for the Eczema Foundation when the App is downloaded and used.
The User's use of the App and creation of the Profile results in the provision of personal information, in particular personal health data (Scores filled in by the User to calculate the SCORAD/PO-SCORAD Index, as well as the resulting SCORAD/PO-SCORAD Index), which the User accepts.
It must be noted that that the personal information entered by a User into the App is stored exclusively on the User's Hardware. The Eczema Foundation does not have access to the Personal Information or the SCORAD/PO-SCORAD Index.
The Eczema Foundation does not perform any processing of data entered into the App. Furthermore, the Eczema Foundation never verifies the identity of Users, nor controls, filters, modifies or reviews any of the Personal Information entered.
Users are responsible for the personal information and health data they enter into the App. Users undertake to take all useful and appropriate precautions, in particular regarding the security of access to their Hardware, so that said information and data cannot be accessed by unauthorized third parties. The Eczema Foundation may not be held liable if a third party telephone accesses the information and data entered into the App.
Users agree (if they consent when they create their Profile) to receive one or two weekly or biweekly alerts automatically from the App, reminding them to calculate their SCORAD/PO-SCORAD Index.
It must be noted that Users may withdraw their consent from the Profile settings at any time.
