iRel8.org a dba of TchTnk LLC (“iRel8”, “we”, “us” or “our”) offers certain digital services (the “iRel8 Services”) to professionals (each a “Professional”) for the benefit of those Professional’s patients (each a “Patient”) and/or constituents (each a “Consitiuent”) and/or our users (each a “User”). Professionals, Patients, Constituents, and Users are collectively called app users (each a “App User”). iRel8 offers versions of the iRel8 Services via multiple apps (each “Platform Apps”) on the platform which may be branded differently from iRel8.
Description of Service: iRel8 offers an internet-based service that enables App Users to access a mobile based communication platform to facilitate mental health wellness. The app may be used to send private, group, commercial messages, or email (“Messages“) between App Users and us. iRel8 provides App Users with tools with which to deliver such Messages, and as well provides for their delivery to App Users in a variety of ways – for example, through in-app Messages and push notification services (“Notificaitons“). The iRel8 Services may include, without limitation: Messages, App User profiles, App User ratings, Notifications, emergency alert mechanisms, text communication, video communication, prizes and products, and email. A more detailed explanation of the iRel8 Services can be found at iRel8’s website, at https://irel8.org/.
General Restrictions on Use: App User will at all times send Messages only as prescribed by iRel8 or within the legal extend of the law. App User may not use the iRel8 Service to promote any products or services that it does not offer and sell directly to App Users. App User may not change the privacy policies established by iRel8 for App Users. Where as allowed, Professionals may sign up with us to sell or promote their services to App Users.
App User must comply with a host of federal and state laws in using the iRel8 Service, and App User accepts and assumes sole and exclusive responsibility to comply with these laws. In this regard, iRel8 strongly encourages App User to refer to the following non-exclusive list of laws and resources to help combat possible legal violations relating to its use of the iRel8 Service in the US (Please check with your local laws outside of the US for further local restrictions, laws, and permissible communications):
App User should carefully review the laws listed above, and is responsible for compliance with such laws. Similarly, iRel8 encourages Professional to review the laws of the state or states in which it operates or to which it sends Messages via the iRel8 Service, and is responsible for compliance with such laws.
iRel8 has also adopted its own restrictions applicable to the use of the iRel8 Services. These restrictions in many cases track the requirements of applicable law, and are discussed below. App User’s failure to follow these restrictions, for example by creating and sending Messages in a manner contrary to these restrictions, will not be tolerated by iRel8, and is done at App User’s own risk. App User is also advised that its adherence to these restrictions will not assure that App User will be compliant with all federal and state laws applicable to it.
Developing Message Content: App User acknowledges and agrees that iRel8 is not a publisher of the content contained in App User’s Messages. App User understands that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, audio, video, messages or other materials (“Content“), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted by App Users, is the sole responsibility of App User. This means that App User, and not iRel8, is entirely responsible for all Content that App User uploads, posts, transmits or otherwise makes available via the iRel8 Service. iRel8 does not control the Content posted via the iRel8 Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. Under no circumstances will iRel8 be liable (including, without limitation, to any App User) for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, transmitted or otherwise made available via the iRel8 Service.
The following is a non-exclusive list of Content (and related products and services) that iRel8 prohibits (“Prohibited and Objectionable Content“):
Restrictions on Use: Each App User agrees not to use any User Services for any reason related to any Prohibited and Objectionable Content or otherwise prohibited by law.
User Messages: App User agrees that iRel8 may send messages to the App User regarding the User Services either via the User Profile or by email to an email address expressly provided by the App User to iRel8. Every email sent by iRel8 Service will be automatically appended with an opt-out link that will allow App User to remove such App User’s email address from iRel8’s contact list, and a notice of App User’s right to opt-out. App User may opt-out of receiving massages from iRel8 via the App User’s User Profile by calling or emailing iRel8 and requesting that iRel8 discontinue the use of such App User’s User Profile.
Taxes: Professional will be responsible for all taxes that arise in any jurisdiction, including value added, consumption, sales, use, gross receipts, excise, access, bypass, franchise or other taxes, fees, duties, charges or surcharges imposed on or incident to the provision, sale or use of the iRel8 Services. The foregoing excludes any tax based upon iRel8’s net income.
iRel8 does not claim ownership of any content or data that App User designs, submits or makes available for use or inclusion in connection with the iRel8 Services (including but not limited to any Content related to the iRel8 Services). However, with respect to all feedback, comments, likenesses, data and other content that App User supplies to iRel8, including but not limited to App User’s name, logo, trademark, service marks or copyrights, App User grants to iRel8 a perpetual, worldwide, unlimited, royalty-free and non-exclusive license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such content in connection with the iRel8 Services and elsewhere for the purpose for which such content was submitted or made available, and also for the purpose of promoting the iRel8 Services.
All of App User’s right, title and interest in and to any ideas, feedback, drawings, and/or content App User generates that lead directly or indirectly to improvements in the iRel8 Services, new products introduced by iRel8, or new business lines (and all proprietary rights with respect thereto), are hereby assigned by App User to iRel8. App User also hereby waives any moral rights App User may have in and to the foregoing.
Member Account and Password: To access the iRel8 Services, each App User must use a validated email address and password or by a third party login service (“Login Service“). Each App User will: (i) keep the password or Login Service confidential; (ii) not allow any other entity or person to use the user name or password, or gain access to iRel8’s database; (iii) be liable for all action taken by any App User of their login methods for their App User login and (iv) promptly notify iRel8 if App User believes their user account has been used inappropriately or the confidentiality of the information made available through such use has been compromised.
The use of the user name or password does not grant App User ownership of such user name or password, which is retained by iRel8. iRel8 may temporarily or indefinitely revoke a App User’s account, privileges, or access at any time for any or no reason and without liability to App User, as applicable.
Fees: iRel8 may charge a fee to any App User for use of the iRel8 Services. If such a fee is charged, it will be explained in a separate application or agreement between iRel8 and App User. App User may not share a iRel8 account between or among other App User.
Termination/Cancellation: App User may cancel its subscription to the iRel8 Services or the User Services, as applicable, at any time by emailing or calling iRel8. iRel8 may terminate, disable, restrict, suspend or cancel any App User’s access to the iRel8 Services, in each case at any time with or without cause, and with or without notice. iRel8 shall have no liability to any App User or third party because of such action. Notwithstanding the cancellation by App User of its subscription to the iRel8 Services, or the termination, disabling, restriction or suspension of App User’s access thereto (collectively, a “Termination“), App User shall remain liable and responsible for satisfying all financial and other obligations arising from its participation (including the payment of any and all applicable fees, charges and other amounts) that may have accrued prior to the effective date of the Termination (including, without limitation, to iRel8 and any App User). App User shall cease using materials, properties and portals provided by iRel8 after Termination.
Limitation of Liability and Indemnification: Each App User agrees that iRel8, and its business partners, third-party suppliers and providers, licensors, officers, directors, employees, distributors and agents, will benefit from, and be protected by, the following limitation of liability and warranty provisions:
(a) APP USER, AS APPLICABLE, AGREES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IREL8 SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY, EITHER IN TORT, CONTRACT OR IN COMBINATION THEREOF, FOR CLAIMS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE IREL8 SERVICES OR APP USER SERVICES, EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF GROSS OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT ON THE PART OF IREL8. ANY SUCH CLAIMS ARE SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS SET FORTH BELOW AND IN NO EVENT SHALL IREL8 BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, REVENUES OR LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES.
(b) THE LIABILITY, IF ANY, OF IREL8, WHETHER TO ANY TYPE OF APP USER OR TO ANY OTHER PARTY, WHATEVER THE BASIS OF LIABILITY, SHALL NOT EXCEED IN THE AGGREGATE THE AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY APP USER TO IREL8 DURING THE MONTH IN WHICH THE ACTION OR OMISSION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY OCCURRED. IN NO EVENT WILL THE LIABILITY OF IREL8 IN CONNECTION WITH THE IREL8 SERVICE OR APP USER SERVICES EXCEED $500.
Furthermore, App User understands and acknowledges that not every Message sent by the iRel8 Services will be received by the intended audience, and that iRel8 is not responsible for the delivery of data, or any other problems that may occur. iRel8 will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the iRel8 Services are available on a 24/7 basis. However, there will be occasions when the iRel8 Services will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and repairs, or because of failure of telecommunications that are beyond iRel8’s control. iRel8 shall not be liable to App User for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the iRel8 Services.
Due to the open nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure, and thus iRel8 cannot guarantee that communications between any App Users, on the one hand, and iRel8, on the other, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.
Jury Waiver: IN THE EVENT ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM BETWEEN IREL8 AND APP USER SHALL ARISE IN ANY JUDICIAL OR LEGAL PROCEEDING, EACH SUCH PARTY KNOWINGLY, INTELLIGENTLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVES ITS RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OF SUCH CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM.
App User Dispute Notification: App User is responsible for the timely reconciliation of all issues related to the iRel8 Services. App User will promptly examine all statements relating to App User’s account and immediately notify iRel8 in writing of any errors. App User’s written notice must include: (i) App User name; (ii) the dollar amount of the asserted error; (iii) a description of the asserted error. This written notice must be received by iRel8 within thirty (30) days after App User received the periodic statement containing the asserted error.

Publicity: App User agrees that iRel8 may issue a press release or similar public announcement referencing App User as a customer of iRel8. App User also grants to iRel8 a limited license to use App User’s and its affiliates’ names, logos, trademarks, service marks or copyrights in any advertising, promotional or instructional materials for iRel8 or its affiliates’ services.
The restrictions on disclosure in this section will not apply to Confidential Information: (i) for which there is documentary evidence that: (A) the other party knew it before it was disclosed; (B) the other party developed it without use of the Confidential Information; (C) it is publicly known; or, (D) it was obtained from a third-party, who disclosed it without breaching its confidentiality obligations; (ii) for which disclosure is required by law (provided that if a disclosure is required by law, the disclosing party will give iRel8 prompt written notice of such requirement, permitting iRel8 to seek a protective order or take such action it deems necessary, and provided further that in such case the disclosing party will only disclose the limited Confidential Information expressly required to be disclosed).
For the avoidance of doubt, at all times, all Confidential Information is the sole property of iRel8, even if its disclosure is authorized under this section, and all other restrictions in these iRel8 Terms and Conditions will continue to apply to such Confidential Information.
Non-Disparagement: App User agrees not to disparage iRel8 or its respective vendors, and promises to refrain from engaging, directly or indirectly, in any action, communication or conduct negligently, recklessly or intentionally undertaken to damage the name or reputation of iRel8 or its respective vendors or App Users.
