HALED LLC Terms of Service
Last Updated: April 18, 2023
Welcome to www.haled.com / www.haledcare.com (as it may be updated, relocated, or otherwise modified, supplemented, or changed from time to time, including without limitation through networks, embeddable widgets, downloadable software, mobile applications, and tablet computer applications, the “Site”), which is operated by HALED LLC as “haled” and/or “haledcare” (collectively and as applicable, “HALED,” “we,” “us,” or “our”).
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY, AS THEY CONSTITUTE A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND HALED.
These Terms of Service (as updated from time to time, these “TOS”), govern your access to and use of the Site, our mobile application (the “App”), and their related content, features, functionality, and services (as further defined below and as may be updated from time to time, the “Services”). For purposes of these TOS, the term “Services” shall mean and include (in addition to and not at the exclusion of the previous sentence): (a) access to and use of the Site’s and/or App’s web pages and mobile application pages, data, analyses, screens, reports, documentation and other information of any kind that are accessible through the Site, as well as all updates, enhancements and modifications thereto, and all intellectual property contained therein; and (b) access to, and the arrangement and consummation of, appointment bookings made through the mobile examiner scheduling service provided through the App (the “Scheduling Service”); and (c) any other products or services offered by HALED that are purchased, received, accessed, or otherwise available via use of the Site or the App.
Parties to Whom Terms of Service Apply
Products available for purchase through the Services include laboratory testing kits that may be purchased from HALED by individual consumer customers (“customers”) or and/or in connection with collection services required or requested by life insurance carriers, brokers, financial advisors, and their designated representatives (“agents”) to be used by individual applicants for life insurance coverage from or through an agent (“applicants”).
Through the App, HALED also provides a technology platform that allows customers and agents to request to schedule an appointment with a third party licensed medical professional such as a registered nurse or certified phlebotomist (a “mobile examiner”) to perform a clinical procedure that is related to fulfillment of the customer’s or applicant’s lab test order or that is otherwise an approved procedure available for scheduling through the App (the “Scheduling Service”).
Reference to a “user” of the Services in these TOS include customers, agents, applicants, mobile examiners, and any other person or entity accessing and/or using the Services, as applicable. Reference to “you” or “your” means you in your capacity as a user of the Services, whether as a customer, agent, applicant, mobile examiner, or any other manner (except as otherwise indicated in these TOS).
Adult Usage Only in the United States
User Accounts and Secured Areas
One Account Policy
To further the integrity of the services provided by HALED, all users are limited to one Account per person, provided that parents and legal guardians may also create an Account for each of their minor children. Users who violate this policy may have all of their Accounts suspended or terminated. For any parent or legal guardian who creates one or more Accounts for a minor child, the terms “Account” or “your Account” in these TOS includes all Accounts created by such parent or legal guardian for any minor child.
Your Account Security
You are responsible for maintaining the security in your Account. You agree and understand that you are solely responsible for your Account security settings, protection of confidential information (e.g., password), and all consequences that stem from activities occurring with your Account. You also agree that we are not responsible for any unauthorized use of your Account. You may not share your Account login information with anyone. We will never request your Account password. If you suspect that your Account or login information has been compromised, you should immediately change your password and contact us.
You further agree to promptly notify us of any unauthorized access or security breach relating to your Account in accordance with the “Notices and Communication” section below. We encourage all users to proactively take steps to enhance their personal security measures. These measures may include using “strong” passwords that consist of lower case and capitalized letters as well as numbers and special characters, regularly changing passwords, and preventing the disclosure of passwords to any third parties.
Accuracy of Information Provided by You
You agree that all information you provide to us is true, current, complete, and accurate. You also agree that you will update your information as needed to keep it true, current, complete, and accurate. You hereby agree to notify us within five days of a change in any information you have previously provided us in accordance with the “Notices and Communication” section below. Failure to provide such new information will constitute a material breach of the terms of these TOS and may lead to the suspension or termination of your Account.
As part of the Services, customers may purchase various laboratory tests, which may be administered, sampled, and/or reviewed by one or more third-party laboratories or licensed physicians. Such third parties are not employees or agents of HALED, and you agree to hold harmless HALED related to all of their acts and omissions.
You may be required to sign additional waivers and disclaimers prior to receiving services from these third parties. Failure to provide the required information or to sign the required documents may result in you not receiving all services. No refunds are issued by HALED if you fail to follow through on all services.
You agree that the third party laboratories and physicians may share information with us related to your results. Any information related to your specific test results will be displayed on the Site or the App after you log into your Account.
Lab Specimens Shipment and Expiration Date
Some laboratory tests purchased through the Services may require “self-administered” specimen collection and come with items to allow the subject of the test to collect a specimen themselves. Any such specimen collection items are manufactured and sourced directly from our licensed third-party laboratories, and will be shipped to the location provided in the lab test order. In order to help ensure lab results are as accurate as possible, each specimen collection system may have an applicable expiration date on it. All specimens must be provided to the testing laboratory prior to any expiration date. Only those lab tests that are designated by HALED as “self-collection” tests are intended for self-administration, and when you purchase a self-administered lab test from HALED, you agree to administer the test and collect any related specimen in accordance with the instructions provided with that test. You also agree not to self-administer any lab test that HALED has not designated as a “self-collection” test. Specimen collection for laboratory tests purchased through the Services that are not designated by HALED as “self-administered” may be arranged with an applicable third-party laboratory or can be scheduled with a mobile examiner through the Scheduling Services.
The procedures available through the Scheduling Service may include, but are not limited to, certain phlebotomy and venipuncture-related procedures, such as blood draws and other biological specimen collection procedures, intravenous (IV) injections or other administration of intravenous lines, vaccine administration, and other clinically related services, in each case as approved by HALED and subject to change from time to time.
When an appointment is created through the Scheduling Service, a mobile examiner will travel to the location designated by the customer or applicant (such as the customer’s or applicant’s home or office) and perform the applicable procedure at the scheduled time and location. Although we require all mobile examiners to provide us with evidence that they have the requisite license, certification, training, and equipment to provide the professional procedure they will perform, all mobile examiners are independent third parties who are not employed or controlled by HALED, and by using the Scheduling Service, you agree to hold HALED harmless from all of their acts and omissions.
With respect to the Scheduling Service, you understand and agree that HALED is merely a facilitator of scheduling and booking services and that you take full and complete responsibility for all risk and liability associated with your use of the Scheduling Service. You acknowledge and agree that the relationship between each customer or applicant using the Scheduling Service and the mobile examiner with whom the customer or applicant books an appointment is a direct contractual relationship, and that such mobile examiner is an independent contractor of such customer or applicant. Each time you use the Scheduling Service, you agree to be party to and bound by the Customer and Mobile Examiner Agreement located at https://haled.com/customer-and-mobile-examiner-agreement/, which is an independent contractor agreement between the customer or applicant scheduling the appointment through the Scheduling Service and the mobile examiner performing the procedure at such appointment. Any relationship or interaction between a customer or applicant and a mobile examiner, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such relationships or interactions, are solely between the customer or applicant and the mobile examiner. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction involving a customer/applicant-mobile examiner interaction. You are solely responsible for, and shall exercise caution, discretion, common sense and judgment in, using the Scheduling Service and disclosing personal information in connection therewith. You agree that HALED shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of your use of the Scheduling Service, including customer/applicant-mobile examiner interactions. In the event of any dispute involving a mobile examiner, you understand and agree that HALED is under no obligation to become involved in such dispute.
If you are a customer or applicant, you agree that by using the Scheduling Service, you are authorizing HALED to disclose certain of your information, which may include personal information, to mobile examiners and your agent.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT INDEPENDENT THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING LABORATORIES AND MOBILE EXAMINERS, ARE NOT ACTUAL AGENTS, APPARENT AGENTS, OSTENSIBLE AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES OF HALED IN ANY WAY. YOU FURTHER AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS, DEFEND, AND INDEMNIFY HALED IN RELATION TO ANY LIABILITY OR CLAIMS RELATED TO ANY THIRD-PARTY CLAIM AND/OR DISPUTE RELATED TO ANY USER.
Payment of Fees and Billing – Customers
The provisions of this “Payment of Fees; Billing – Customers” section apply only to users acting as customers in their individual consumer capacity:
You understand that use of the Services may result in charges to you for the services or goods you receive from HALED and/or from third-party providers associated with the Services, including but not limited to third-party laboratory tests that you order and use and appointments made with mobile examiners through the Scheduling Service (as applicable, “Charges”). You acknowledge that prices displayed to you when purchasing goods or services through the Services may be inclusive of retail prices and other fees charged by an applicable third-party provider and service fees paid to HALED. For Charges you incur in conjunction with the Services that are owed directly to third-party providers such as laboratories or mobile examiners, HALED will collect payment of those Charges from you on the third-party provider’s behalf as such provider’s limited payment collection agent, and our payment of those Charges shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the third-party provider.
ALL SERVICES ARE PRIVATE PAY. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT FROM OR BILL ANY INSURANCE COMPANY OR GOVERNMENTAL PAYORS. WE DO NOT PROVIDE ANY LABORATORY TESTING, VENIPUNCTURE PROCEDURES, OR OTHER MEDICAL SERVICES. ALL SUCH SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY LICENSED AND/OR CERTIFIED THIRD-PARTIES. We may assess and collect from you fees, surcharges, or other supplemental payment requirement imposed on HALED by any governmental, regulatory, or financial institution or entity. You may make payments to HALED by various methods, which may include valid credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay and other electronic payment methods. HALED reserves the right to expand or limit its accepted payment options.
When you make a payment for any Charges, you expressly authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge you for and enable your payment of the applicable Charges for services or goods obtained through your use of the Services. In conjunction with each payment you make for your use of any Services, or in which a third party makes on your behalf, you warrant that the payment information is true and correct (e.g., valid PayPal account and credit card information). Further, you understand and agree that any declined payment may lead to additional fees (e.g., dishonored credit card) and to the suspension or termination of your Account and further access to the Services. You also understand and agree that you are solely responsible to ensure prompt payment of all Charges to us and that HALED is under no obligation to retain, preserve, or otherwise maintain your information, Account, or any Services associated with your Account if your Account includes due but unpaid Charges or is otherwise in default.
We utilize a third-party payment processing company. We do not collect any of your personal credit card information. If you have any concerns regarding your payment information, you agree to contact us and allow us to investigate; provided however, that you acknowledge that we are not responsible for any errors or omissions from the third-party payment processing company.
If you fail to comply with these TOS, you may be responsible for Charges, including, without limitation, for transactions that could not be completed properly due to your failure to comply with these TOS.
If you would like to see your payment history, please log into your Account. You may access it from within your member profile by going to “Account,” then “Billing,” and finally “Billing History.”
Payment of Fees; Billing – Non-Customer Users
Applicants receiving procedures performed by a mobile examiner pursuant to the Scheduling Service and no other Services will not be billed directly by HALED, and payment for any Scheduling Service and/or mobile examiner procedure costs for such applicant will be charged and billed to the carrier requesting the procedure for such applicant.
Unless otherwise set forth in a written agreement between HALED and a particular agent, fees for all Services used by an agent will be billed to such agent every 30 days and will be based on agreed-upon rates applicable to the Services as established by HALED and such agent, with payment of fees for each 30 day billing cycle due from the agent to HALED within 30 days of the date billed.
Refund and Cancellation Policy
All Charges paid by customers for Services are non-refundable unless otherwise indicated in these TOS. No refunds will be provided to customers if they cancel the Services or fail to proceed with lab testing that they have ordered. Any user whose access to or use of any Services is suspended or terminated by HALED for cause will not be entitled to any refunds.
If an appointment with a mobile examiner has been booked by a customer through the Scheduling Service and the mobile examiner is unable to perform the booked services due to circumstances outside of the customer’s control or for reasons other than the customer’s medical condition or health, the customer will not be charged for the appointment or will receive a credit towards the cost of a rescheduled appointment. Appointments booked through the Scheduling Service will not be charged to the customer if they are cancelled by the customer more than 24 hours prior to the appointment start time or by the mobile examiner more than 12 hours prior to such start time.
If you are a customer and you miss a payment or have an overdue balance in your Account, you may be assessed a one-time late fee, and you may also be charged 12% interest on your past due balance. The interest rate is calculated on a continuously compounded basis.
Automatic Payments in the Event of Default
If you are a customer who has provided payment information to HALED and sums are due and owing from you to HALED and you are in default of your obligations under these TOS, you authorize HALED to deduct any sums due and owing from your payment source(s) so long as HALED provided you with notice of your default and you failed to cure the default under the terms and conditions of these TOS.

HALED EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. UNLESS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED AGENT OF HALED, HALED DOES NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THE SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR FREE. FURTHERMORE, HALED DOES NOT WARRANT THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM ANY PARTY’S USE OF THE SERVICES, THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING FROM ANY LABORATORY OR MOBILE EXAMINER, OR THE QUALITY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER PROVIDED THROUGH THE SITE OR THE APP OR OTHERWISE. YOU AGREE THAT THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND ANY SERVICE OR GOOD REQUESTED OR OBTAINED FROM THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPLICITLY WRITTEN IN A DOCUMENT SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED AGENT OF HALED, HALED PROVIDES NO WARRANTY REGARDING THE GOODS OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED FROM THE SITE OR THE APP, OR PROVIDED BY ANY THIRD PARTY ASSOCIATED OR AFFILIATED WITH HALED.

The Services are intended for informational purposes only. When you access or use the Services, rely on any information provided on the Site or the App, download or upload content on the Site or the App, proceed to other websites linked to the Services, or interact with the Site, the App, or third parties related to the Services in any manner, you do so at your own discretion and risk. In other words, you are solely responsible for any damage done to you or your computer, electronic device, or other property, including but not limited to the loss of money, corruption of data, loss of data, and loss of chance.
HALED does not provide or intend to provide any medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or other clinical decisions, suggestions, or judgments. Your use of the Services does not create in any way a physician-patient relationship, any sort of confidential, fiduciary or professional relationship, or any other special relationship that would give rise to any duties on our part. The Services are not intended to provide and do not provide medical advice and are no substitute for obtaining medical advice from a qualified physician. If you believe you may be ill and need medical treatment, we recommend that you immediately consult with a licensed physician.
Advertisers and Third Party Content
Without limiting the forgoing disclaimer of warranties or assumption of risk provisions, HALED does attempt to provide email support for users of the Services.

Reports of Abuse
Retention of Records
You agree to comply with all applicable governmental laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations related to the retention of records.

Termination of Services
Users of the Services who wish to terminate their Account and/or use of the Services must complete the cancellation process on their Account profile within the Site or the App.
Notices and Communication
If we have to contact you, you agree we may do so by telephone call, text message, or email to the phone number and/or email address you provided when you registered or updated an Account or that you used to communicate with us. You agree that we may use automatic telephone dialing equipment and other technology in connection with these communications.
Notices that you send to us must be delivered via first class mail to the following address: HALED LLC, 6366 College Blvd, Overland Park, KS, 66211. You may also send us notices through https://haled.com/contact/ so long as you place “LEGAL NOTICE” in the subject line of the message.
You authorize us to send any notices to you based on the information you provide us. We are not responsible if you fail to keep your contact information up to date. In sending any notice to us, you will need to reasonably explain the action that you see us to take and/or actions or inactions that you believe we need to take.
When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these TOS, those terms includes emails. For contractual purposes, you consent to receiving notices, disclosures, agreements, terms, conditions, amendments and other communications from HALED in an electronic form and agree that such electronic communications will have the same legal effect and satisfy the same legal requirements that such communications would satisfy if they were made “in writing” in a physical document. The foregoing does not affect your statutory rights.
Dispute Resolution, Arbitration, Choice of Law, Jurisdiction and Venue
All purchases from HALED are deemed made within the State of Missouri.
You further agree to resolve any claim that you may have against us on an individual basis in arbitration. You acknowledge that you will not be able to bring, and hereby waive the right to bring, any class, collective, or representative action against us, and accordingly, you will not be eligible to participate in, or recover any relief under, any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against us by someone else. You may opt-out of the requirement for arbitration and this class action waiver provision by providing us with notice within 30 days of when you create your Account. If you have not opted out by that time, you agree that you will be bound by this arbitration and class action waiver provision. You may opt-out of these requirements by notifying us using the procedure stated in the “Notice and Communication” section above.
For all claims, you agree that you will first provide a good faith opportunity for us to resolve the dispute informally with you. You must notify us in writing and include: (a) your name, (b) your address, (c) a detailed written description of your claim and concerns, and (d) a description of the specific relief you seek. If we are unable to resolve the claim to your satisfaction within 30 days after we receive your written notification, you may pursue your claim in arbitration. Any party’s breach of this dispute resolution section, including the arbitration requirement, shall be deemed a material breach of these TOS and shall entitle us to all of our damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred related to your breach.
Exclusive Remedy and Limited Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, ANY PECUNIARY LOSS RELATED TO THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES, LOST EARNINGS, WAGES, BACK WAGES, FUTURE WAGES, OR STATUTORY PENALTIES) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SERVICES, INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, OR ANY OTHER HARM FOR WHICH YOU CLAIM WE MAY BE RESPONSIBLE.
HALED SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, PERSONAL INJURY, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE RELATED TO, IN CONNECTION WITH, OR OTHERWISE RESULTING FROM ANY USE OF THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF ANY NEGLIGENCE (EITHER ACTIVE, AFFIRMATIVE, SOLE, OR CONCURRENT) OF HALED, AND WITHOUT RESPECT TO WHETHER HALED HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
HALED SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, LIABILITY, OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF: (A) YOUR USE OF OR RELIANCE ON THE SERVICES OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; OR (B) ANY TRANSACTION OR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER ASSOCIATED WITH THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY LABORATORY OR OTHER USER OF THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER HALED HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
THE LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS IN THESE TOS DO NOT PURPORT TO LIMIT LIABILITY OR ALTER ANY CONSUMER RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, HALED’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THIS PROVISION SHALL HAVE NO EFFECT ON HALED’S CHOICE OF LAW PROVISION SET FORTH BELOW.
Time Limitations For Action
Unless prohibited by law, you agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the services provided to you by HALED must commence within one year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred and shall be deemed released and waived.
Waiver of Jury Trial
No Third Party Beneficiaries
Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, nothing in these TOS is intended to confer upon any third party any rights, remedies, obligations, or liabilities.
Restriction of Assignment
You may not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your duties under these TOS without the prior written consent from HALED. Any attempt by your creditors or another third party to obtain an interest in your rights under these TOS is voidable at HALED’s option.
Successors and Assigns
Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, these TOS shall bind and inure to the benefit of the successors, assigns, heirs, executors and administrators of the parties hereto.
No waiver of a breach, failure of any condition, or any right or remedy contained in or granted by the provisions of these TOS shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the party waiving the breach, failure, right, or remedy. No failure or delay by HALED in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver. Similarly, HALED’s election to not assert its rights under these TOS shall not preclude HALED from asserting any of its rights in the future.
Severability of Terms
If HALED prevails in any action, suit, or proceeding arising from or based upon these TOS, HALED shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees in connection therewith in addition to court costs and other fees and disbursement incurred in such action, suit, or proceeding.
The Services are not available to residents of the State of California. If you are a resident of the State of California, you are not authorized to access or use the Services in any way, and you agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend us from and against any and all liability arising from or in connection with your access to or use of the Services.
Terms Applicable to Mobile Examiners
The provisions of this “Terms Applicable to Mobile Examiners” section apply only to users acting as mobile examiners:
The following provisions of these TOS apply to each third party medical professional using the Services as a mobile examiner. In the event of a conflict between the following provisions and any other terms in these TOS, the following provisions shall prevail. To be a mobile examiner using the Scheduling Services, you must be a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, or medical assistant or a certified phlebotomist, where applicable and required. By your use and access, you represent and warrant that you comply with all laws, medical board rules, and any other state and federal rules and regulations applicable to you as a medical professional.
