Terms of Service
Please read the following Terms of Service (these “Terms”) carefully before using the LoveIntuition, LLC (“LoveIntuition”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) mobile application (the “App”), visiting our website located at https://love-intuition.com/ (the “Website”), or participating in any online features, products, services and/or programs offered by us (individually and collectively, with the App and the Website, the “Services”). The Terms set out the legally binding terms of your use of the Services, whether you are a user of the Services or a Practitioner (as defined below) practicing through the App or the Website, as described further herein.
These Terms include important information about your legal rights, remedies, and obligations, including various limitations and exclusions, and provisions that govern the procedure, jurisdiction and venue of any disputes. By accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and all additional terms incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to any portion of these Terms, you should not access or otherwise use the Services.
An individual accessing the Services (“user”) has the option to share with a therapist or psychologist (each, a “Practitioner”) personal information about the user and the user’s relationships. Any information a user shares with the Practitioner, and all rights related to such sharing, may be subject to additional terms and conditions provided by the Practitioner. Each user will be required to sign a HIPAA Authorization Form to permit the Practitioner to disclose to LoveIntuition all protected health information related to the professional services being rendered to the user by Practitioners. If you are a Practitioner, you may be bound by additional terms and conditions provided by us from time to time.
Convenience and Information
The Services are provided to you as a convenience and for your information only. By merely providing you access to and use of the Services, we do not warrant or represent that any statement, document, image, graphic, logo, design, audio, video, or any other information provided by, on or through the Services (collectively, the “Content”) is accurate or complete; the Content is up-to-date or current; we have any obligation to update any of the Content; the Content is free from technical inaccuracies or programming or typographical errors; the Content is free from changes made by a third party; your access to the Services will be free from interruptions, errors, computer viruses or other harmful components; and/or any information obtained in response to comments submitted or questions asked through the Services is or will be accurate or complete.
The Services Do Not Provide or Constitute Healthcare Treatment or Counseling
The Services allow you to evaluate your relationships and identify and track what you consider to be red flags, communicate with other users, and access resources that you may find useful. The Services do not provide psychiatric, psychological or other medical or professional treatment, advice or counseling, and do not constitute the practice of medicine, psychology, marriage therapy, or behavioral therapy, or the rendering of medical, psychological, behavioral health, mental health or any other health care or professional services. LoveIntuition is not licensed to provide medical, psychological or any other type of professional services.
With the exception of communications between you and each Practitioner (none of which constitutes Content or Services hereunder), the Content provided on and through the Services is provided for informational purposes only. Please consult with a Practitioner, your physician and all appropriate healthcare professionals regarding any medical, psychological or healthcare-related matters, including, without limitation, counseling, diagnosis or treatment of any kind.

DO NOT DISREGARD, AVOID, OR DELAY IN OBTAINING PROFESSIONAL CARE FROM YOUR DOCTOR, THERAPIST OR OTHER QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL BECAUSE OF INFORMATION OR ADVICE YOU RECEIVED ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES.
Relationship with Practitioners
The Services provide a neutral online venue that users can use to share relationship information with Practitioners, and, if both the user and Practitioners choose, to engage in a professional relationship. We require every Practitioner using the Services to be a trained and experienced licensed psychologist (PhD/PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), licensed professional counselor (LPC), or similar recognized professional certification, as required in the states and/or jurisdictions applicable to their practice.
The Practitioners are independent providers, and are not our employees, agents or representatives. The role of the Services as a communication platform for users and Practitioners is limited to enabling the users and Practitioners to connect and communicate. The services provided by each Practitioner to you are the responsibility of such Practitioner, and LoveIntuition does not make any representations or warranties regarding such services, including, without limitation, that such services are properly performed or helpful or applicable to you, your issues or concerns.
You acknowledge and agree that each Practitioner will charge for his or her services provided on or through the Services, as further set forth on the Fee Schedule published on the Website and accessible here (the “Fee Schedule). LoveIntuition collects the Practitioner’s fees from you on behalf of such Practitioner and delivers payment to them. The fees charged to you by LoveIntuition for the Services are separate from those charged by each Practitioner, as further set forth on the Fee Schedule.
Please be advised that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended, and its implementing regulations (“HIPAA”), does not apply to information that is shared by you with us or with any other users of the Services or collected by us from you in accordance with these Terms, except to the extent that the Services serve as a communication platform between you and each Practitioner, in which case your signed HIPAA Authorization will authorize the disclosure of such information to us by each Practitioner. LoveIntuition is not a “health care provider,” “covered entity,” “business associate” or “subcontractor” as those terms are defined under HIPAA. The Services are not intended to render, and do not render, any type of healthcare or professional services to any user. All information that you disclose using the Services is provided by you on a voluntary basis to the recipient of such information. We advise you not to share with or disclose to any user of the Services any information that could potentially identify you, whether independently or in combination with other information available to such user. If you share or disclose such information, even inadvertently, please know that any such information will not be protected by HIPAA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, your identity and username will be disclosed to each Practitioner providing services to you through the Services as necessary for such Practitioner to render professional services to you under applicable licensure requirements or standards of practice.

Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL LOVEINTUITION OR OUR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES OR PARENT COMPANY, OR ANY OF OUR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, MANAGERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AGENTS, PARTICIPANTS, ATTORNEYS, EMPLOYEES, EXECUTORS, HEIRS, PREDECESSORS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES, OR ANY PERSON ACTING BY, THROUGH, UNDER OR IN CONCERT WITH ANY SUCH PARTIES, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, THE CONTENT OR THE CONTRIBUTIONS PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM RELATED IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SAME, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU BY ANY PRACTITIONER THROUGH OUR SERVICES. IN ADDITION, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY NEGATIVE REPERCUSSIONS TO ANYONE BASED ON THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY LOST GOODWILL OR LOST PROFITS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INACCURACIES OR ERRORS IN OR OMISSIONS FROM THE CONTENT OR CONTRIBUTIONS, OR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY PRACTITIONERS THROUGH OUR SERVICES; OR INTERRUPTIONS, OR LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING THEREFROM OR OCCASIONED THEREBY, OR BY ANY REASON OF NONPERFORMANCE. REMEDIES UNDER THESE TERMS ARE EXCLUSIVE AND ARE LIMITED TO THOSE EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, OUR ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO LOVEINTUITION FOR OR RELATING TO THE SERVICES WITHIN THE PRIOR TWELVE (12) MONTHS, IF APPLICABLE. BECAUSE SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
The Content and the Services are intellectual property owned, controlled and/or licensed by us and/or our affiliates, or intellectual property that we are legally permitted to access and use. All applicable intellectual property laws, including copyright laws, protect our rights in and to the Content. We are the owner or authorized licensee of, or are otherwise permitted to use, all trademarks, service marks, and logos used and displayed by us on and in connection with the Services. Nothing on the Services should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any of our, or our affiliates’, trademarks, service marks, logos, or copyrighted materials without our prior written permission in each instance.
We own, protect and enforce copyright and other rights in our own intellectual property, and respect the intellectual property rights of others. We will respond to allegations of copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”). Under the DMCA, a copyright owner may file a takedown notice with us of an alleged copyright infringement. During this process, we will take down the alleged infringing content, and take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed, if appropriate. If a valid counter-notification is filed, we typically will restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. We may provide copies of such notices to the affected parties or to any other third parties, at our discretion and as required by law.
When notifying us of potential infringement, you must include the following information: identification of the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed and the material that is to be removed; information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the allegedly infringing material; contact information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, or e-mail address; a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material is in fact infringing; a statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the information set forth in the notification is accurate; and the signature, physical or electronic, of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on his or her behalf.
Notice of alleged infringement must be sent by e-mail to our DMCA Agent, Ramya Dronamraju at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by certified mail and marked “Copyright Infringement”, Attn: DMCA Agent at LoveIntuition at 951 Fell St, Baltimore MD, 21231.
Before filing a notice of copyright infringement, please make a careful determination as to whether or not the use of the material at issue is or may be protected by the “fair use” doctrine. You could potentially be held liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. If you are unsure whether there is infringement, please seek the advice of legal counsel.
To file a counter-notification with us, please provide the DMCA Agent with a written communication containing the following: identification of the allegedly infringing material that was removed or disabled; a statement that, under penalty of perjury, you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification; your name, address, and telephone number; and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your postal address is located, and that you will accept service of process from the party who submitted the infringement notification or his, her, or its principal or agent; and the signature, physical or electronic, of you or a person authorized to act on your behalf.
Termination of Service
We may suspend or terminate your right to access portions of the Services, without notice, for conduct that we believe violates these Terms and/or is harmful to other users of the Services or the Practitioners, to us, to our partners, to the contributors, to the business of our Internet service provider, or to other information providers, or as we otherwise deem appropriate, in our sole discretion.
You acknowledge that your conduct that is inconsistent with these Terms may cause us irreparable damage for which remedies other than monetary relief may be inadequate. In such instances, you agree that we may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to restrain such conduct without the necessity of proving actual harm or posting a bond.
Governing Law; Jurisdiction and Venue
You agree that all matters relating to your access to, or use of, the Services will be governed by the laws of the State of Maryland, without regard to any conflict of laws principles. You agree and hereby submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located in the State of Maryland with respect to such matters.
We make no representation that any materials on the Services are appropriate or available for use in jurisdictions that are outside the United States. Access to the Services from jurisdictions where such access is illegal is prohibited. If you choose to access the Services from other jurisdictions, you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable national, regional and local laws.
Additional Agreements and Third-Party Agreements
In addition to these Terms, in connection with your use of the Services, you may be subject to, and/or required to agree to, various guidelines, rules, schedules, disclosures, disclaimers and other terms that we may provide or make available to you from time to time that relate to the Services that we provide and that are owned or controlled by us (collectively, “Additional Agreements”).
You may also be subject to other terms of third parties who provide services that are not owned or controlled by us, for example third-party payment processors. These additional third-party agreements are not included in the Additional Agreements, and we make no representations regarding such additional third-party agreements. Such third-party agreements and applications are provided “as is” and your use of such services is subject to their respective terms.
