Terms and Conditions of Use
N.B. This is an English translation and in the event of conflict between this version and the original Swedish version, the latter shall prevail.
1. Applicability, scope, etc.
These terms and conditions apply to the agreement between Webbhälsa AB, org.nr. 556967-0820, ("Webbhälsa") and the customer/patient who registers as an Account holder (the “Account Holder”) regarding Webbhälsa's provision of the account (the “Account”) and related services on the technical platform for Account Holders and healthcare providers (“Healthcare Provider”) that Webbhälsa provides in the application for iOS and Android (the “App”) as well as on the website www.kry.se.
Through the App, individuals can book appointments with licensed healthcare practitioners, in particular doctors, for medical care and advice through video meetings. The Account Holder can also submit a written description of the patient’s symptoms to the individual Account prior to the meeting. When the video meeting begins, the Account Holder can describe his/her condition and concerns to the doctor, who will then perform a visual examination of the patient, diagnose where possible, and suggest further treatment.
Webbhälsa is only an intermediary service between the Account Holder and Healthcare Provider and should therefore not be regarded as a Healthcare Provider. The agreement between the Account Holder and Webbhälsa is therefore strictly a service agreement pertaining to the provision of a technical solution. Webbhälsa is therefore not responsible for the nature or quality of medical examinations or other medical services provided within the context of a video meeting.
The Account Holder enters into an agreement with Webbhälsa by creating an Account in accordance with current guidelines in the App. By registering an Account in the App, the Account Holder agrees to the terms and conditions of use outlined here.
The Account Holder is responsible for ensuring that all personal data provided when entering into agreement with Webbhälsa is relevant, correct, and updated throughout the term of agreement. Any potential changes to this information must be reported to Webbhälsa without delay, by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling customer service at +46 8 22 77 07.
These terms and conditions of use, as well as instructions, policies and additional information related to the service is available in the App.
The following provisions are not applicable if Account Holder will be provided services through the App as part of, e.g. subscriptions, employment health programme, such as part of compensation and benefit-schemes:
6.1 and 6.2 (cancellation of video meeting with right to refund)
Second sentence in 9.2 (right to terminate the agreement with a right to a refund)
