Teledentistry Consent Agreement
IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY,
IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR DOCTOR OR DIAL 911
I hereby request, consent and authorize Denteractive Solutions Inc. and its subsidiaries, affiliates, representatives, and agents (collectively, “Denteractive”) and their employed or contracted dentists, physicians, or other licensed health care professionals in its care network (each, a “Practitioner”), to utilize telemedicine (including teledentistry) through Denteractive proprietary systems, methods and protocols to access, diagnose, consult, treat and educate me and those I am authorized to represent (the “Services”).
I acknowledge and consent to see a Practitioner via telemedicine. I understand that my eligibility to receive a visit via telemedicine is based on the Practitioner’s medical judgment that it is appropriate and that the quality of care will not be diminished by the use of telemedicine. I understand that a telemedicine visit is distinct from an in-person visit because I will not be in the same room as the health care Practitioner, and instead, I will communicate with the Practitioner through advanced communication technology using live video and audio feed.
I acknowledge that in order to protect my privacy, I need to choose a private location to place my telemedicine call. I understand that in order to provide the best call environment, I should reduce background light from windows or light emanating from behind me. I understand that my camera should be placed on a secure, stable platform to avoid wobbling and shaking during the telemedicine session. To the extent possible, my camera should be placed at the same elevation as my eyes with my face clearly visible to the other person. I understand that I will be informed of the presence of any third party, including those that may be present to assist with the audio or video equipment, and that I have the right to: (1) omit specific details of medical history or physical examination that are sensitive to me during such third party presence; (2) ask non-medical personnel to leave the telemedicine examination room; and/or (3) terminate the consultation at any time by notifying the Practitioner or disconnecting from the telemedicine portal.
I understand the potential risks of receiving the Services via telemedicine include: delays in medical evaluation due to technological equipment failure, a lack of access to all relevant information, or a security breach allowing unauthorized access to my confidential medical information. I understand that my Practitioner or I may terminate the telemedicine visit at any time, including if the Practitioner or I feel that an in-person visit is necessary for any reason. I have had the Services and alternatives to telemedicine for my Services explained to me and I choose to and continue with a telemedicine visit.
I understand that any complaint may be filed with the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. I have read and understood the written information provided above. I agree that the information provided above adequately explains the Services, along with the risks and benefits to me of said Services.

By electronically signing this form, I acknowledge and agree to all of the above, and certify that I have no questions and/or have had my questions answered in full.

Further, I understand and acknowledge that I am digitally receiving a copy of this Agreement concurrently upon execution to print and/or retain a copy of this Agreement, and may also request a paper copy from Denteractive using the contact information below:

Dentist certifies that each such employee will have agreed, either as a condition of employment or in order to obtain the Confidential Information, to be bound by terms and conditions at least as protective as those terms and conditions applicable to Dentist under this Agreement. Dentist shall immediately give notice to Company of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information. Dentist shall assist Company in remedying any such unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information. Dentist agrees not to communicate any information to Company in violation of the proprietary rights of any third party.
(c) Exclusions from Non-Disclosure and Nonuse Obligations
Dentist’s obligations under Section 4(b) shall not apply to any Confidential Information that Dentist can demonstrate (i) was in the public domain at or subsequent to the time such Confidential Information was communicated to Dentist by Company through no fault of Dentist; (ii) was rightfully in Dentist’s possession free of any obligation of confidence at or subsequent to the time such Confidential Information was communicated to Dentist by Company; or (iii) was developed by employees of Dentist independently of and without reference to any Confidential Information communicated to Dentist by Company. A disclosure of any Confidential Information by Dentist (A) in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body or (B) as otherwise required by law shall not be considered to be a breach of this Agreement or a waiver of confidentiality for other purposes; provided, however, that Dentist shall provide prompt prior written notice thereof to Company to enable Company to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent such disclosure.
(d) Ownership and Return of Confidential Information and Company Property
All Confidential Information and Company Property, are the sole and exclusive property of Company or Company’s suppliers or customers. Dentist agrees to keep all Company Property at Dentist’s premises unless otherwise permitted in writing by Company. Within five (5) days after any request by Company, Dentist shall destroy or deliver to Company, at Company’s option, (i) all Company Property and (ii) all materials in Dentist’s possession or control that contain or disclose any Confidential Information. Dentist will provide Company a written certification of Dentist’s compliance with Dentist’s obligations under this Section 4(d).
Dentist will indemnify and hold harmless Company from and against any and all third party claims, suits, actions, demands and proceedings against Company and all losses, costs and liabilities related thereto arising out of or related to (a) an allegation that any item, material and other deliverable delivered by Dentist under this Agreement infringes any intellectual property rights or publicity rights of a third party; or (b) any negligence by Dentist or any other act or omission of Dentist, including without limitation any breach of this Agreement by Dentist.
7. Defend Trade Secrets Act
Pursuant to the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, if Dentist is an individual, Dentist acknowledges that he/she shall not have criminal or civil liability under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that (a) is made (i) in confidence to a federal, state or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney; and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (b) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. In addition, if Dentist files a lawsuit for retaliation by Company for reporting a suspected violation of law, Dentist may disclose the trade secret to Dentist’s attorney and may use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if Dentist (x) files any document containing the trade secret under seal; and (y) does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.
8. Noninterference with Business
During the course of the Agreement and for a period of twelve (12) months immediately following the expiration or termination of the Agreement for any reason, whether with or without good cause or for any or no cause, at the option of either Company or Dentist, Dentist will not, either directly or indirectly, (i) interfere with Company’s contracts and relationships, or prospective contracts and relationships, including, but not limited to, Company’s customer or client contracts and relationships; and (ii) will not solicit or induce any employee or independent contractor to terminate or breach an employment, contractual or other relationship with Company.

This website, located at www.denteractive.com (together with any affiliated or otherwise related or referenced websites, mobile applications or other services, the “Site”), is owned and operated by Denteractive Solutions Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Denteractive,” “we,” or “us”). Anyone using our site may be referred to as “you” or a “User” throughout this policy.
This Site facilitates the provision of the Services to registered users. The “Services” include (i) providing individuals with information on dental care and oral health (“Content”); (ii) help finding and otherwise connecting with a dentist; (iii) video conference support for using the Services as a means of direct access to licensed dentists and other healthcare providers (each, a “Dentist” and each such online teledentistry consultation, a “Teledentistry Consultation”) for communication, consultations, assessments, and/or treatment; (iv) development and gathering of health care records and health care information with retention of the same for use in Dentist appointments and communications; and (v) administrative support in connection with scheduling and payment for services provided by Dentists.
Information We Collect
We also may automatically collect certain data when you use the Services, such as (1) IP address; (2) domain server; (3) type of device(s) used to access the Services; (4) web browser(s) used to access the Services; (5) referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Services; (6) geolocation information; and (7) other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the Services (collectively “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Information. We may also collect additional information, which may be Personal Information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent.
HIPAA and PHI
How We Collect Information
We collect information, including Personal Information and Traffic Data, when you use and interact with the Services, such as:
- When you use the Services’ interactive tools and services, such as searching for Healthcare Providers, searching for available appointments with Healthcare Providers and completing dental history questionnaires prior to Healthcare Provider appointments;
- When you voluntarily provide information in free-form text boxes through the Services and through responses to surveys, questionnaires and the like;
- If you download and install certain applications and software we make available, we may receive and collect information transmitted from your computing device for the purpose of providing you the relevant Services, such as information that lets Denteractive know when you are logged on and available to receive update or alert notices;
- If you download our mobile application, we may receive information about your location and mobile device;
- Through cookies, web beacons, website analytics services and other tracking technology (collectively, “Tracking Tools”), as described below; and
- When you use the “Contact Us” function on the Site, send us an email or otherwise contact us.
- We also may collect information about you from third party sources.
Tracking Tools and “Not to Track”
The Tracking Tools that we may use and how we may use them include:
- Web Beacons: “Web Beacons” (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect anonymous information about your use of our Services, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send you. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to monitor how many people are using the Services, using the selected advertisers’ websites or opening our emails, and for what purpose, and also allows us to enhance our interest-based advertising.
- Website Analytics: We may use third-party website analytics services in connection with the Services, including, for example, to record mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text that you type into the Site. These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites which do not use their services. We use the information collected from these services to help make the Services easier to use.
- Mobile Device Identifiers: Mobile device identifiers are data stored on your mobile device that can be used to track your mobile device and data and activities occurring on and through it, as well as the applications installed on it. Mobile device identifiers enable collection of Personal Information (such as media access control, address and location) and Traffic Data. As with other Tracking Tools, mobile device identifiers help Denteractive learn more about our users’ demographics and internet behaviors.
How Denteractive Responds to Browser “Do Not Track” Signals
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website operator that elects to respond to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the website operator may refrain from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including Denteractive, do not take action to respond to DNT signals.
Options for Opting out of Cookies and Mobile Device Identifiers
Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) allow you to reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept Denteractive’s Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
You may opt out of receiving certain Cookies and certain trackers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) consumer opt-out page. When you use these opt-out features, an “opt-out” Cookie will be placed on your computer or tablet indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertising from NAI or DAA member companies. If you delete Cookies on your computer or tablet, you may need to opt out again. Please note that opting out of interest-based advertising does not mean you will no longer see Denteractive’s advertisements; rather, opting out means that the advertisements that you do see are not interest-based advertisements. Also, opting out does not mean that Denteractive is no longer using Tracking Tools — Denteractive still may collect information about your use of the Services even after you have opted out of interest-based advertisements.
Information Provided By or On Behalf of Children
The Services are not intended for use by children and children under the age of 13 are prohibited from using the Services. Denteractive does not knowingly collect any information from children, nor are the Services directed to children.

Disclosure of Information
We may disclose certain information that we collect from you:
- We may share your Personal Information with Healthcare Providers with which you choose to schedule through the Services. For example, if you elect to complete a Medical History Form using the Services in advance of an appointment, we may share your Medical History Form with your Healthcare Providers. You also may choose to store but not share with Denteractive your Medical History Form.

- We may share your Personal Information with Healthcare Providers in the event of an emergency.
- We may also share your Personal Information with organizations that collect, aggregate and organize your information so they can make it more easily accessible to your Healthcare Providers.
- We may share your email address with our business partners solely to enable them to help Denteractive customize our advertising, e.g., to enable us to contact you on non-Denteractive websites. We do not sell email addresses to third parties.
- We may share your Personal Information and Traffic Data with our business partners who perform core services (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Services and/or by making certain features available to our users.
- We may transfer information about you, including your Personal Information, to another company in connection with a merger, sale, acquisition or other change of ownership or control by or of Denteractive (whether in whole or in part). When one of these events occurs, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you before your information becomes subject to different privacy and security policies and practices.
Any information that you may reveal in a review posting or online discussion or forum is intentionally open to the public and is not in any way private. We recommend that you carefully consider whether to disclose any Personal Information in any public posting or forum. What you have written may be seen and/or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we are unable to control or predict.

Legal Bases for Use of Your Information & Controls and Choices
The laws in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and some other jurisdictions require us to provide you, to the extent those laws apply to you, with the following information:
Legal Grounds for Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
The legal grounds for use and disclosure of personal information include any of the below reasons:
- On the basis of consent, such as to send you certain information, including marketing communications, to share your information with partners when you have requested we do that, or to collect and process your information for research purposes if you have used the Service, or otherwise agreed.
- To protect the vital interests of the individual or others. For example, we may collect or share personal data to help resolve an urgent medical situation.
Controls and Choices
- In addition, Users in the European Economic Area and some other jurisdictions outside the United States have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them (including, in some cases, in portable form), and to obtain its correction, update, amendment or deletion in appropriate circumstances. They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, to request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways (for example, if you opt out of the use of your telephone number for direct marketing, we might still decide to contact you by phone regarding potential fraud on your account).
- Users in the European Economic Area have the right to opt-out of all of our processing of their personal data for direct marketing purposes. To exercise this right, you may contact us.
- The rights and options described above are subject to limitations and exceptions under applicable law. In situations in which we process personal data on behalf of our User, we may refer the request to the relevant User and cooperate with their handling of the request, subject to any special contractual arrangement with that User.
- In addition to these rights, Users in the European Economic Area have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. However, we encourage you to contact us first, and we will do our very best to resolve your concern.
How We Protect Your Information and Data Retention
Data Transfers, Storage, and Processing Globally
Under Nevada law, certain Nevada consumers may opt out of the sale of “covered information” for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information to additional persons. “Covered information” includes first and last name, address, email address, phone number, Social Security Number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online. We do not engage in such activity; however, if you are a Nevada resident who has purchased or leased goods or services from us, you may submit a request to opt out of any potential future sales under Nevada law by emailing us at email@example.com. Please note we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request. Once verified, we will maintain your request in the event our practices change.
