Terms of Use


I. Introduction
 
Welcome to Taiwan Healthcare+.  
 
Taiwan Healthcare+ Platform (https://www.taiwan-healthcare.org, hereinafter "THP") is established by Institute for Biotechnology and Medicine Industry and Research Center for Biotechnology and Medicine Policy (hereinafter "we" or "us") to provide website features and other services to you when you visit  THP, use THP services, use THP applications for mobile, or use the software we provide in connection with any of the foregoing (collectively, "Services").  We provide the Services subject to the following terms and conditions.  In addition, any and all regulations, policies and explanations with regard to THP that we have announced, announce or might announce in the future constitute part of this Terms of Use.
By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree to this Terms of Use.  To protect your legitimate rights, please read them carefully.
 
1. We may amend this Terms of Use from time to time as we see fit and announce the amended Terms of Use on THP website without sending individual notice to each user or Member of THP.  The amended Terms of Use should be effective from the moment of announcement.  You acknowledge and agree to such amended Terms of Use when you continue to use the Services after the announcement.
 
2. If you use any Service, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer.  You also agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. 
 
3. If you are under 20, you shall use the Services and/or register as a Member only with involvement of a parent or guardian who has read, understood and agreed to this Terms of Use and the amendments thereto.  If you are under 20, when you start or continue to use the Services, we will presume your parent or guardian has read, understood and agreed to this Terms of Use and the amendments thereto.
 
4. We may use the contact information you provide to inform you about any important matter that is essential for us to provide the Services.  You should reflect any change to such contact information with THP by registration or by phone in order to maintain accuracy of such information.  Any notice or message delivered in accordance with your registered contact information is deemed to have been duly delivered to you despite your failure to receive it because of any reason not attributable to us, such as outdated information.
 
II. Rights and Obligations of a Member
 
You need to become a member by completing the member registration and agreeing to the following in this section ("Member") so as to access all aspects of the Services:
 
(1) You shall provide accurate and up-to-date information on yourself when you register.  You cannot register with the same member information twice or with the name of any person other than yourself.
 
(2) You shall update the registration data with accurate and up-to-date information.
 
(3) If we have a reasonable belief that the information you provide is untrue, wrong or outdated, or you register with the same identity twice or with the name of any person other than yourself, we may refuse service to you, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders at our sole discretion without any prior notice.
 
III. Privacy Policy
 
Please review our Privacy Policy, which also governs your use of the Services, to understand our practices.
 
IV. Account, Password and Data Security of a Member
 
After you complete the registration with THP, you will obtain a Member account and a password.  To effectively protect your membership rights, please keep your account and password secure and consent to the following:
 
1. Inform us promptly when you find your account and/or password is used by others without your consent or any security issue arises.
 
2. Log out every time you finish your use of the Services.
 
3. Do not transfer or lend your account, password or membership rights to others or use them together with others.
 
4. If the account and password keyed in THP are identical to those registered at THP, we will presume it is the Member himself or herself using the Services regardless whether or not the Member keyed in, logged in and/or made all successive activities himself or herself.
 
5. If we are reasonably aware of any improper or illegal use of the Services or any activity in violation of this Terms of Use, we may immediately refuse service, terminate accounts or membership, and/or remove, edit or restrict access to content at our sole discretion without any prior notice.  If we have reasonable belief that certain use of the Services might violate applicable laws and regulations, in addition to the aforementioned measures we may take, we may, at our sole discretion without any prior notice, transfer relevant information and evidence of such use to the competent authorities for investigation.
