Should you require any advice or instructions concerning our products or services, please contact us directly. Users of this Website declare that they agree to access the Website and its content at their own risk. Neither NOVO GENOMICS nor third parties involved in the writing, production, or transmission of this Website can be held liable for damage or injury resulting from the access or the impossibility of access or from the use or impossibility of the use of this Website or from the fact that you have relied on information given on this Website.
Use of our Website
The contents and structure of the Website are copyright protected. The use of information or data requires the prior written consent of NOVO GENOMICS. You must comply with existing intellectual property rights and any applicable usage terms and conditions in case you intend to use any published content of this Website. Any quotes or excerpts from published content are permitted for private or non-commercial use subject to reference to the source “NOVO GENOMICS.”
Trademarks and Copyright
NOVO GENOMICS and its licensors retain full copyright and trademark ownership, rights, and protection in all material contained on the Website (including all text, digital images, video, software, HTML code, and other code or business methods) with the exception of User Content. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, you may not copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, rewrite, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any material contained on the Website without the prior written consent of NOVO GENOMICS or the copyright owner.
Use of Portal
This Agreement shall apply to all NOVO GENOMICS physician/institutes portals, including any features and services available via such portals (each physician portal, a “Portal”; collectively, the “Portals”). All references to the Website in this Agreement shall be deemed to include the Portals. We intend for the Portals to be used only by qualified healthcare professionals (for purposes of this section of the Agreement, “you” and “Physicians”). Where allowed by applicable law and this Agreement, you may designate individuals to use the Portals on your behalf (each a “Delegate”). You must comply with this Agreement when appointing a Delegate. Only Physicians and Delegates (collectively, “Authorized Users”) may access the Portals. The Portals allow Authorized Users to order certain tests, procedures, or services and to access patient information, laboratory test results, relevant documentation, and other information. We may modify or discontinue any aspect of the Portals at any time and without notice.
Authorized user Responsibilities
You understand and agree that when you use the Portals, you will have access to confidential, sensitive, and personal information. You are responsible for complying with all international and local laws, regulations, directives, and guidance applicable to that information. You are responsible for obtaining any consent necessary to provide a patient’s personal or health-related information to us.
Keep Your Account and Information Secure
You will use a unique username and password to access the Portal. You are responsible for keeping your username and password confidential. You are also responsible for all uses of your account, including if performed by a Delegate – even if that Delegate is not considered an Authorized User. To maintain account security, we recommend changing your password regularly when you have any reason to believe your password has been compromised. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized access to your account or if you suspect your account has been compromised. We will not manage or have access to your password, so we cannot retrieve it for you if you misplace it.
You agree that you are responsible for any misuse of your account, even if you are unaware. You may also be liable to third parties or us for any misuse of the Portals through your account, including liability that arises under applicable laws. You must not use anyone else’s account unless you have his or her permission. You must not provide your password to anyone else, including any representative of NOVO GENOMICS. You agree that you are responsible for any further uses you make of the information accessed through the Portals. For example, if you download, reproduce, or transfer such information to third parties, you are responsible for doing so responsibly and in a secure manner and in compliance with your obligations under applicable laws.
Properly Authorize Delegates
You may authorize Delegates to access and use the Portals on your behalf. To authorize a Delegate, you must first ensure that your use of a Delegate is permitted under applicable law (which you agree is your responsibility to determine). If legally permitted, once you have selected a Delegate, you must notify us of your selection and complete any required paperwork. We will provide unique login information for your Delegate, which he or she may use only if the Delegate accepts this Agreement. You shall not provide the Delegate with your access credentials or login information.
Properly Restrict Delegate’s Use of the Portal and Services
By permitting a Delegate to access a Portal on your behalf, you agree that each Delegate:
• is currently employed by or under contract with you or works for another member of the patient’s clinical healthcare team;
• has your personal authorization to access such Portal;
• is accessing or providing information only as directed and instructed by you and consistent with the patient’s express consent;
• will use and disclose the test results and other information obtained through such Portal in compliance with applicable laws and policies; and
• is accessing such Portal in an authorized manner and using his/her own unique account and credentials.
You are responsible for obtaining guidance regarding compliance with all applicable laws in your jurisdiction. We may refuse any test requisitions or submissions of Delegates that we believe may be illegal or improper at our sole discretion.
Properly Monitor Delegates’ Use of the Services
Because you are liable for the actions of your Delegates, you agree to ensure your Delegates have appropriate rights of access for the intended use of the Portals. You agree to document your laboratory test orders or other services in the patient’s medical file, even if a Delegate entered the order. We consider patient information we deliver to your Delegate to be delivered to you. Therefore, if you suspend or terminate your relationship with a Delegate or if you wish to suspend or terminate a Delegate’s authority to access a Portal on your behalf, you agree to inform us immediately.
Do Not Misuse the Personal or Proprietary Information of Others
Protected health and personal information provided through the Services, such as test reports, patient information, and test requisition forms, may be used and distributed only for purposes of treatment, payment, or relevant healthcare operations.
The use of special features like the report download option and any electronic information services by registered users are subject to special terms and conditions.
