Coviu Service Terms
Account Creation And Access
Coviu will strictly sell the Coviu Service through and with the approval of an adult user. If a user is under 18 years of age, he/she may not purchase any products or services through Coviu.
Guests that join a registered user in a video call don’t have to register – they merely identify themselves to the registered user by name and image.
To register, before using and accessing the Coviu service, you will need to:
- provide any details requested such as details about your profession and business;
- provide your name and email address.
After the end of the trial period you must provide a current, valid, accepted method of payment (Payment Method) to continue using the Coviu service.
When you register and provide all of the required details, we will provide you with an account that you access using a username and password. The user name is your email address. You must log in using your user name and password to use the Coviu service.
You must maintain the confidentiality of your username and password. You are responsible for all activities that are conducted through your account whether or not you have authorized such use. Your account and your right to use the Coviu service are personal to you and you must not authorize others to use your account. It is a condition of use of the Coviu service that you ensure that your contact details are kept up-to-date and accurate. You can change or correct your information by logging-in to your profile.
You must contact us immediately if you believe someone has gained unauthorized access to your account.
You are responsible for updating and maintaining the accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your account.

- the customer acknowledges and agrees that its representative is agreeing on behalf of the corporation or other organization to be bound by these Service Terms; and
- the customer warrants that the customer’s representative has the authority to agree to these Service Terms on behalf of the customer.
You are permitted to use the Coviu service only for legal purposes, including to carry out a business that provides consultations to clients or patients.
You can request that your account be disabled in the Settings section of your Coviu account or by contacting us at email@example.com.
Authorized Users means you (if you are an individual), your officers, employees or contractors who have been expressly authorized by you to participate as authorized users of our service. You must ensure that when accessing the Coviu service, any Authorized User observes all of our security, administrative and other reasonable requirements and directions, and complies with these Service Terms as if it were a party to it.
Use Of The Service
You must (and must ensure that your Authorized Users) use the Coviu service in accordance with these Service Terms and all applicable laws. You must not (and must ensure that the Authorized Users do not):
- subject to the warranty provided by us below, use the service in a way which may infringe the rights of any third parties;
- interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the service, or upload or permit any virus or malicious code to adversely affect the service or any associated equipment;
- reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive the source code of the service or any part of it; or
- copy, reproduce, publish, exploit or use any part of the service for the purpose of resale, to offer or make available products or services similar to the service or for any purpose other than as expressly permitted under these Service Terms.
We warrant that to the best of our knowledge the Coviu service does not, and (when used by you as permitted under these Service Terms) will not, infringe any third party’s rights (including Intellectual Property Rights) or breach any law.
At the end of the subscription period, your access to the Coviu service will automatically renew unless you cancel your subscription. The subscription fee will be charged to your Payment Method. Unless you cancel your account before your monthly or annual billing date, you authorize Coviu Global to charge the next month’s or next year’s subscription fee to your Payment Method.
The subscription fee for the Coviu service and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Coviu service including taxes and any transaction fees, will be charged to your Payment Method on a monthly or annual basis on the calendar day corresponding to the date you registered to use the Coviu service. Your payment date may change in certain circumstances, for example if your payment was unsuccessful or delayed for any reason.
Coviu may use a third party payment service provider to process payments due to Coviu and you may be required to agree to additional terms between you and the third party payment service provider in order to pay for and use the Coviu service.
If a payment is not successful including due to issues with your Payment Method (for example, expiration of your Payment Method or insufficient funds) and you do not update your Payment Method or cancel your account, Coviu may cancel your account or suspend access to the Coviu service until payment has been received. You remain responsible for any outstanding payments owing to Coviu and authorize Coviu to charge any outstanding payments to your updated Payment Method.
Coviu may change the subscription plans for the Coviu service from time to time and will provide you with at least 30 days’ notice before the change comes into effect. Coviu may decide to apply new subscription plans only to new users in which case you will be grandfathered on your existing subscription plan. Coviu may – acting reasonably – move you to another subscription plan of their choice.
You may cancel your subscription to use the Coviu service at any time – including when you don’t agree with a change to a subscription plan – and your service will be terminated at the end of the subscription period. This is the case both for monthly and annual plans. You can request that your account be terminated in the setting section of your Coviu account or by contacting Coviu at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel your subscription, you will no longer have access to the Coviu service and will not be entitled to a refund.
Your subscription may start with a free trial for a period of one or more weeks (Free Trial Period). Free trials are only open to new subscribers who meet the eligibility requirements set out in these Service Terms and may only be claimed once per account. Free trial eligibility is determined by Coviu Global in its sole discretion and Coviu Global reserves the right to limit free trial eligibility to prevent abuse of the free trial offer.
During the Free Trial Period, you will be provided with access to the Coviu service and a feature set determined by us.
Before the end of your Free Trial Period, we will send you an automated email for you to enter your credit card details to continue using the Coviu service. If you provide your credit card details, we will charge the Coviu service subscription fee to your Payment Method on the day of your subscription (this date will be considered your registration date for the purposes of these Service Terms). Your credit card will then be charged monthly or annually on that date in accordance with the billing cycle for your selected subscription plan. We may require you to provide additional information in order to activate your paid subscription account for the Coviu service.
Both you and we agree to keep confidential all information received from each other under or in connection with these Service Terms and to only use such information for the purposes of performing the party’s obligations under these Service Terms except:
- disclosure may be made to a party’s employees, officers, consultants, contractors and agents who require access to that information to allow the recipient to perform its obligations under these Service Terms subject to those persons agreeing to keep the information confidential on terms equivalent to these Service Terms; or
- if the information is:
- in the public domain or comes into the public domain otherwise than by disclosure in breach of these Service Terms; or
- independently developed or acquired by the recipient prior to obtaining it from the discloser; or
- received by the recipient from a third party who has the right to provide that information without breach of any legal obligation;

To the maximum extent permitted by law:
- despite any other provision in these Service Terms, neither Coviu Global, nor any of their employees, officers, consultants, contractors and agents will be liable to you or any other person or entity for any special, indirect or consequential loss or damage (howsoever caused, including due to negligence) arising out of or in connection with these Service Terms (including for non-availability or use of the Coviu service, including any SDKs or APIs made available to you, or use or reliance on information contained in or linked to or from this service); and
