Last Updated: October 1, 2023
Please read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) and our Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) carefully because they govern your use of Color Health, Inc.’s and its affiliates’ (collectively, “Color,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) services, including use and access of our website located at www.color.com (the “Site”), corresponding mobile applications (“App”), our healthcare delivery and technology platform services, available screenings and tests (“Tests”) and products (as further described below) accessible via the Site, and all other websites and online applications operated by Color or its affiliates that link to or incorporate these Terms (“Other Services”). To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, services, products, tests, App and Other Services are collectively called the “Services.”
COLOR CAN HELP CONNECT YOU TO SERVICES, BUT COLOR IS NOT YOUR DOCTOR AND DOES NOT PRACTICE MEDICINE OR PROVIDE ANY FORM OF MEDICAL CARE OR MEDICAL ADVICE. USE OF THE SERVICES IS NOT FOR EMERGENCIES. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911 OR GO TO THE NEAREST OPEN EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT.
The Services are not appropriate for all medical conditions or concerns. We recommend that you speak with your physician or other qualified healthcare provider regarding any questions you may have about the Services before you consent to treatment or testing. It is important that you review carefully any fact sheet or other distributed information and have all your questions answered before proceeding. You should not make medical decisions or changes to medications or dosages without consulting a healthcare provider.

We do not control or interfere with the practice of medicine by clinicians, each of whom is solely responsible for the medical care and treatment he or she provides to you.
2. Agreement to Terms. Your access to and use of the Services are subject to these Terms, regardless of whether you create an account. By accessing or using the Services, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, do not access or use the Services.

4. Changes to these Terms or the Services. We may update these Terms from time to time by posting the updated Terms on the Site and to the App. Using the Services after updated Terms are posted means you accept and agree to be bound by the updated Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the Terms as they exist at the time you use the Services, you may not use the Services. Because our Services are evolving over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
5. Additional Terms. We may provide certain services that are subject to additional terms, and by using such services you agree to the applicable additional terms. Individuals participating in Services through Color’s Organizational Customers may also be subject to additional terms.

8. Vaccination Services. You understand that no vaccine will give you absolute protection against contracting any disease, and that there are risks inherent to receiving any vaccine.
9. Healthcare Providers Acting on Behalf of Their Patients. If you are a healthcare provider submitting a Test order for your patient, you represent and warrant that: (i) you hold a valid and in force professional license and are authorized in your jurisdiction to order the Test on behalf of your patient; (ii) you have advised your patient of the benefits, risks, capabilities, and limitations of the Test(s) and Service(s); (iii) you have obtained consent from your patient to share patient health information with Color, as required under HIPAA, and any other applicable data privacy requirements; (iv) you have confirmed that your patient has signed or will sign the applicable informed consent; and (v) you will notify Color of any changes in patient information and consent status (e.g., changes in consent regarding sample storage or participation in optional research).
10. Sample Processing. Failure to collect and timely return your specimen in strict compliance with the collection and shipping instructions and deadlines may result in delays or in the inability to return a test result. Color is not liable for any non-compliance with these instructions, or for delays or specimen loss due to shipping, transportation, weather or other uncontrollable events. For replacement testing, a new specimen may be required and you may incur a replacement test kit fee.
11. Information Provided to Color by Third Parties. Color may provide or make available to you information it receives from a health system; state, county, or city government; employer; school or university; or other sponsoring entity or other third-party. Color takes no responsibility for the accuracy of any such information.
12. Feedback. We appreciate feedback, comments, ideas, proposals, and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). If you choose to submit Feedback, you agree that we are free to use it without any restriction or compensation to you.
13. Payment. Certain Tests, vaccinations, pharmacy services, shipments, clinician visits and other health services available through the Services may require payment. ALL SUCH PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
(a) General. When you make a payment for any of our Services (each, a “Transaction”), you expressly authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge you using the Payment Information (as defined below) for such Transaction. We may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, including your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and your email and postal addresses for billing and notification (such information, “Payment Information”). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. When you initiate a Transaction, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third parties so we can complete your Transaction and to charge your payment method for the type of Transaction you have selected (plus any applicable taxes and other charges). You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information is included within the definition of Payment Information). By initiating a Transaction, you agree to the pricing, payment, and billing policies applicable to such fees and charges, as posted or otherwise communicated to you. All payments for Transactions are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms. All fees and applicable taxes, if any, are payable in United States dollars.
(b) Insurance. In certain situations, your health plan may cover all or a portion of your use of the Services. Subject to the terms of any applicable written agreement with the health plan, you may authorize us to bill for the Services on your behalf and share necessary information with the health plan to process payments. If your health plan covers Color Services and makes payment to Color for a given Transaction, your payment obligation for such Transaction will be reduced by the amount your health plan actually paid to Color. You may be held responsible for any fees that your health plan does not cover, such as copays, deductibles, and coinsurance. We may ask you to provide insurance information, including your insurer, ID number, RxBin number, and RxPCN number. By providing insurance information, you represent that such information is accurate, complete and current.
14. Your Content.

Our Services may allow you to submit, store, or share information, data, or content such as text (in communications with healthcare providers or others), files, assessments, self-report measures, lab samples, laboratory results, prescriptions and pharmaceutical documents, medical records, family history, documents, graphics, images, software, audio and video. Anything (other than Feedback) that you make available through the Services is referred to as “User Content.” Color does not claim any ownership rights in any User Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to your User Content.
(b) Permissions to Your User Content. You hereby grant to Color a license to use any User Content to operate and provide the Services.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, we are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of your User Content. Color may be required to retain certain User Content in connection with our legal requirement to preserve health-related records.
