ABOUT EVA

  1. Eva is designed to empower people to take back control of their health, immunity, quality of life and longevity.  Eva provides an easy way for you to track and monitor your symptoms, consumption of medicines and novel therapeutics and their impact on your quality of life.  Our current version of the app uses the EuroQol Research Foundation’s EQ-5D instrument for measuring health related Quality ofLife.  Our vision is to fundamentally transform healthcare and wellbeing for all, and we believe that personalised medicines and novel therapeutics have a unique role to play in improving a person’s quality of life, wellbeing and longevity.  In order to gain accurate insights, we aggregate the anonymised data of our community to find patterns and safety data.  We also use analytics and algorithms to improve our service and provide information within Eva.  EVA IS NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE. PLEASE DO NOT USE “EVA” FOR MEDICAL PURPOSES – IN CASE OF ANY INDIVIDUAL HEALTH ISSUES, YOU MUST CONSULT A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.
  2. EVA IS NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE CLINICAL MEASURES AND/OR MEDICAL ADVICE.  BY USING EVA, YOU AGREE TO USE THE SERVICE WITHIN FOR THE INTENDED INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION WITH A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND PARTICULARLY NOT FOR DIAGNOSIS AND/OR MEDICAL PURPOSES.
  3. Eva is intended to collect user-entered and otherwise provided data points related to health, treatment or medication (method of consumption, time, place, and its ultimate observed effect), physical activity and other data of the person using Eva.  These data points allow for statistical processing for medical overviews and correlations related to specific conditions (such as chronic pain, anxiety, sleep disturbances, menstruation discomfort etc.) and one’s personal health in general.
  4. You can use Eva by downloading and installing Eva from either of the App Stores, and subject to creating an account in the App.
  5. The scope and functionalities of the App may differ based on the jurisdiction in which you are using Eva and the type of medication and/or therapeutic treatment of your choice.  In particular, the App Service may not be available in certain jurisdictions.

GENERAL LEGAL TERMS

  1. This Agreement and Privacy Policy constitute the entire understanding between the parties respecting use of the Software, superseding all prior agreements between you and Alta Flora.  In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and those in any Privacy Policy, the terms of this Agreement will control, except to the extent that Privacy Policy impose additional restrictions and liabilities on your actions.

  3. Note on certain laws and regulations applicable to medicinal cannabis and derivatives thereof (if applicable): Laws and regulations surrounding medical cannabis and other natural therapeutics are complex and evolving, as is the information about the efficacy and safety of such products.  We think it is important for all of our citizens to be aware of the laws that may apply to them.  In the UK, cannabis and the majority of its derivative substances are controlled drugs and their use remains illegal, subject to some exceptions.  The most significant statute concerning the control of drugs is the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (the “MDA”), which, in conjunction with the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001, forms the basis of the UK’s controlled drug regime.  Cannabis is a Class B drug under the MDA, meaning it is a criminal offence to import, export, produce, cultivate, supply or possess cannabis without a licence.  However, since 1 November 2018, the rescheduling of cannabis under the MDA legislation enables certain unlicensed cannabis based  products  for  medicinal  use  in  humans  to  be  available  under  the  provisions  for  “Specials”  under  the  Human  Medicines  Regulations  2012.  The  Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) published relevant guidance on 31 October 2018.  The Regulations are available here and the MHRA guidance is available here.  Laws and regulations differ depending on the jurisdiction you are located in, please ensure that you are familiar with the local laws and regulations applicable to your chosen treatment and/or medicine.  This does not constitute nor should it be construed as legal or medical advice. Always consult your GP and/or specialist doctor prior to trying any treatment, substance or supplement.

NO GENERAL WAIVER

The failure of Alta Flora to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect.
