These Terms apply to all users of the App Services, including users who are also contributors of content, information, and other materials on and made available through the App Services. All references to “you,” “your,” or “user” as applicable, mean the person who accesses or uses the App Services in any manner, and, as applicable, each of your heirs, assigns, and successors, and any other users of such a user’s account by authorized individuals, such as the individual’s parents, guardians, caregivers, and other designated agents. If you have been authorized to, and are helping another user access, visit, or create an account on the our App or the App Services, these Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between both users respectively, including the helper and the person being helped, and CareDx.
By downloading the App or accessing, or using the App Services, you represent and warrant that you are at least eighteen (18) years old and able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law. If you are under the age of eighteen (18), please have your parent or guardian read and agree to these Terms. If your parent or legal guardian does not agree to (or cannot comply with) these Terms, you may not use or attempt to use App. If you are under eighteen (18), your parent or guardian must review and accept the terms of these Terms, and by downloading, accessing, and otherwise using the App Services, you confirm that your parent or guardian has so reviewed and accepted these Terms. We reserve the right to limit the availability to users under the age of eighteen (18) of certain content in the App Services, in our sole discretion.
Please note that the App Services may not be fully compatible with all devices and you are responsible for obtaining access to the Internet and the equipment necessary to use the App Services, including any service fees or equipment costs associated with such access.
The contents of the App Services, including text, graphics, images, links to third-party resources, and other material (“Content”), are for informational purposes only. If you rely on any Content, you do so solely at your own risk. We are not responsible for the accuracy, reliability, availability, effectiveness, or correct use of information you receive through the App Services. The App Services are not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Your reliance on information available on or through the App Services is entirely at your own risk and your use of such information should not replace your good judgment and common sense.
We recommend that you consult with a qualified Health Care Provider with respect to any matter relating to your physical or mental health, especially symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention. Only a qualified Health Care Provider can provide you with advice on what is safe and effective for you. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

Users may access the App Services without registering for an account. However, to access and participate in certain features of the App Services, including to submit, upload, or otherwise make available Content, you will need to create a password-protected App account (“Account”). If you want to use those aspects of the App Services, then you shall provide the CareDx with true, accurate, complete, and current registration information. When you register for an account, you may do so yourself or by an authorized agent of a user. Please note that the App Services supports various categories of users, including users may be Transplant Patients, parent or guardians of a Transplant Patient, Transplant Buddies (e.g., friends and family of patients), as well as support users, including Transplant Coordinators and Patient Care Managers. As such, the registration process for each category of user may vary. For example, Transplant Patient may register for the App Services directly, whereas Transplant Buddies are invited to register, and thereby participate in the App Services, by the Transplant Patients if applicable or they make the decision for the Transplant Patient to participate in their capacity as an authorized agent or guardian of the Transplant Patient.
The App Account and App profile page will be created for your use of the App based upon the information you provide to us or that we obtain via a Third-Party Account as described above.

To comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (contained within Title 17, U.S. Code) (the “DMCA”), CareDx has adopted and implemented a policy that provides for the prompt removal of Content that allegedly infringes others’ intellectual property rights.

The notice should include the following information:
CareDx’s copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement on the App Services is:
Title: CareDx Copyright Agent
Address: 1 Tower Pl 9th floor, South San Francisco, CA 94080
If you receive a notification from CareDx that Content made available by you on or through the App Services has been the subject of a Notification of Claimed Infringement, then you will have the right to provide CareDx a “Counter Notification.” A Counter Notification must be written, provided to our Designated Agent via a method identified above, and include substantially the following information:
A party submitting a notice of claimed infringement or a Counter Notification should consult a lawyer or see 17 U.S.C. §512 to confirm your obligations under the Copyright Act.
Under the DCMA, any person who knowingly makes material misrepresentations in a notification of claimed infringement or in a counter-notification may be liable for damages. CareDx reserves the right to seek damages from any party that submits a notification of claimed infringement or counter notification in violation of the law.

User agrees that these Terms constitute an agreement entered into between User and CareDx in California, and is performed within California.

User waives any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such court.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be not enforceable by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, then such provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms constitute the entire agreement between User and CareDx relating to the access and use of the App Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between CareDx and you regarding the App Services and Content.
