This agreement is between Kalix, Inc., a Delaware corporation (EIN 32-0490413) (“Kalix”, “we” or “us”), and the person agreeing to these terms and conditions (the “Customer”, “you”, or “your”), and covers all services provided by Kalix to Customer.
These terms are important, and you must read them carefully and contact us with any questions before you use Kalix.
If you are acting on behalf of, or are representing, an organization, each user of that organization must independently register as a user and accept the terms of this agreement.
By accessing or using Kalix, you acknowledge and agree that you have had sufficient opportunity to read and understand this agreement and you agree to be bound by it. If you do not agree to the terms of this agreement, please discontinue using Kalix.
2.1 The License. Upon provisioning by us, Kalix will become accessible to you via a web interface through our website, www.kalixhealth.com. We grant you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use Kalix in accordance with the terms of this agreement within the country, or countries, in which you operate your business.
You may then use Kalix for as long as you:
2.2 USA Users. If you, or your business, are located in the United States of America, we may ask you to sign a business associate agreement (a “BAA”) around the same time that you accept this agreement.
The BAA addresses the requirements under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, (as amended) with respect to “business associates”, as defined under the privacy, security, breach notification, and enforcement rules at 45 C.F.R. Part 160 and Part 164 (the “HIPAA Rules”).
The BAA is intended to ensure that ‘protected health information’ as defined in the HIPAA Rules is dealt with in accordance with the HIPAA Rules.
To the extent that the BAA is inconsistent with the terms of this agreement, the terms of the BAA will govern. All terms of this agreement not in conflict with the BAA remain in full force and effect.
2.3 Canadian Users. If you are located in Canada, we may ask you to sign a data and privacy agreement (a “DPA”) around the same time that you accept this agreement.
The DPA aims to address how we both deal with ‘personal health information’ as defined in the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (S.C. 2000, c.5), or other applicable Canadian privacy law.
To the extent that the DPA is inconsistent with the terms of this agreement, the terms of the DPA will govern. All terms of this agreement not in conflict with the DPA remain in full force and effect.
2.4 Australian and New Zealand Users. Both Australia and New Zealand have Privacy Acts, which govern the sharing of personal information with foreign agencies and persons. Kalix is not governed by either privacy act.
However, it is our intention to comply with data privacy laws in all jurisdictions in which we operate, even if they do not specifically apply to our business. As a result, if you are located in Australia or New Zealand, you acknowledge and give consent that:
(a) the Australian and/or New Zealand Privacy Principles do not apply to any data you share with us or give us access to;
(b) by accepting this agreement and using our Services, you give us authorization to hold, store, and use your information as required to provide the Services; and
(c) as a US based business, we may not be required to protect your information in a way that, overall, provides comparable safeguards as those required in Australia or New Zealand.
