Some online platforms to which Users may be referred utilize terms like “patients,” “providers,” and “clinics.” Use of such terms on a platform, or the use of any other terms commonly related to the medical field, should not be construed as NuStart or NuStart’s coaches, staff, or third-party agents, and/or other Users of the Service providing medical care. Additionally, the information and reports generated by NuStart in providing the Services may not be interpreted as a substitute for physician consultation, evaluation, or treatment. You, the User, acknowledges that NuStart has advised you to seek the advice of a physician before entering into this Agreement.

- Release of Information. User understands and acknowledges that NuStart may, at its sole discretion, release de-identified health information (health information that neither identifies nor provides a reasonable basis to identify an individual). User authorizes NuStart to release individually identifiable health information to User’s insurers, to User’s medical care providers, to User’s employer (to the extent necessary to qualify User for continued Services), and to NuStart’s successors and assigns to the extent necessary to provide continuity of Services in the event NuStart’s duties are transferred to another provider.
