What is the Service?
We offer access and use of our video technology and patient engagement solution that allows participating parents/guardians, students and educational institutions (“school”) to work together to maintain a safe school environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Service allows parents/guardians and/or Students to record and submit videos to their Administrator(s), which Administrators can then review to assess each Student’s medical symptoms related to the current pandemic as identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) (available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html) and determine whether it is safe for the Student to return to school .
Certain features of the Service may be subject to additional terms, which will be provided to you if you choose to use such features. Use of any features that are subject to additional terms constitutes an agreement to be bound by the additional terms. In the event that additional terms presented to you conflict with these Terms, the additional terms will govern.
The spread of the COVID-19 virus has been declared an “international pandemic” by the World Health Organization (WHO). We have augmented our service so that it can be used to help prevent and reduce transmission of Covid-19 through symptoms screening. Examples of such uses of the Service include:
- to allow for school administrators (“Administrators”) to use the Service to screen their students for symptoms of Covid-19 prior to returning to school.
- to allow for school administrators (“Administrators”) to use the Service to review student-submitted Covid-19 testing data and student-submitted vaccination data prior to returning to school.
Students and parents/guardians submitting information to an educational institution through emocha for purposes of the school’s review and evaluation are referred to in these Terms as “Students”. Administrators and Students are collectively referred to as “Users.”
The Service facilitates certain monitoring activities and communications between Administrators and parents/guardians or Students. emocha is not a medical service provider, health insurance company, virtual clinic or pharmacy, nor are we licensed to sell health insurance. You cannot fill prescriptions through the Service.

The Service cannot and is not intended to provide medical advice. Please contact your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions regarding personal health or medical conditions.

If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem or condition, or that you are having a reaction to a medication you took, please contact a qualified health care professional immediately.
THE CONTENT ON THE SERVICE IS NOT AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED MEDICAL ADVICE OR A SUBSTITUTE FOR INDIVIDUAL MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER(S) FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT. NONE OF THE INFORMATION PRESENTED VIA THE SERVICE REPRESENTS OR WARRANTS THAT A PARTICULAR STUDENT IS SAFE TO RETURN TO WORK.
Your school’s Administrator will make decisions based on the health data that you submit to them via the App. If you provide incorrect or misleading information, this may affect the Administrator’s ability to make appropriate decisions to protect your safety. emocha is not responsible for inaccuracies in the information you provide.

AS A USER OF THE APP, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THE INHERENT LIMITATIONS OF THE ABOVE VIDEO REVIEW.

FINALLY, WHILE UTILIZING THE SERVICE A STUDENT MAY ENGAGE IN BEHAVIOR THAT IS ACTIONABLE BY THEIR SCHOOL THAT THE SUPERVISOR OR SCHOOL MAY BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THROUGH OBSERVATION BUT WHICH MAY NOT BE IDENTIFIED BY THE REVIEWER.
