These choices are yours and may require the advice of a health care provider. The Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment or recommendation regarding medication.

Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the App!

If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately. The App does not endorse any specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on the Site.   The App provides potential birth control methods and answers to related reproductive health questions based on the information you input.  The birth control methods the App suggests are meant to be considered by you and your physician when you ultimately determine which birth control method to choose.  Reliance on any information provided by the App is solely at your own risk.

 

GOVERNING LAW, VENUE AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION

If we are unable to resolve your concerns informally within 30 days after our receipt of your notice, you may file a claim in small claims court so long as you proceed only on an individual basis or commence an arbitration proceeding, which means YOU ARE AGREEING TO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, HAVE A JURY TRIAL AND LEAD OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.  The arbitration will be conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”).  For the avoidance of doubt, you agree that YOU MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST TIA IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR IN ANY REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR PROCEEDING.  Further, you agree that no arbitrator shall consolidate any other person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding.  You agree that the award of the arbitrator will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction in the State of CA.  You agree that we may seek interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in CA, necessary to protect its rights or property pending the completion of arbitration.

You must file a demand for arbitration with the AAA within ONE (1) YEAR after the date your claim arose, or within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.  Otherwise, your claim is waived.
