WHO WE ARE
META CP LLC (collectively, “META”, “we”, or “us”) provides a Platform that enables users to identify, engage with and receive mental wellness services from Mental Wellness Providers. META is NOT a healthcare provider NOR a legal service, but rather has entered into an agreement with each participating Mental Wellness Provider to provide certain services.
Mental Wellness Providers are independent licensed, accredited, or certified mental wellness professionals or practices, which may include psychiatrist, psychologist, professional counselor, marriage therapist, social worker therapist, or other such professionals as determined by META. Each participating Mental Wellness Provider has entered into a contractual arrangement with META to receive certain services, including being listed as a provider on the Platform and being granted access to the Platform to provide telehealth mental wellness services to patients.
NO MEDICAL EMERGENCIES
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
MENTAL WELLNESS PROVIDERS AND SERVICES
META does not provide mental wellness or any other healthcare services. All of the Mental Wellness Providers are independent of META and use the Platform as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Mental Wellness Provider comes from the provider alone, and not from META. Your interactions with the Mental Wellness Providers via the Platform are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners. Neither META, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Platform or provide a link to the Platform, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Mental Wellness Provider via the Platform or for any other information obtained on the Platform.
META does not endorse any specific tests, healthcare provider, medications, products or procedures that are recommended by Mental Wellness Providers that may use META to communicate with you. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Mental Wellness Providers or information provided by the Mental Wellness Providers or via the Platform or Services is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risk associated herewith.
META does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Mental Wellness Providers who provide services via the Platform or Services. Any ratings, comments, or testimonials appearing on the Platform about a specific Mental Wellness Provider were generated from user responses or data only, and do not reflect or represent any endorsement or recommendation by META.
You will be provided with a list of Mental Wellness Providers participating with META who are available to provide professional services where you are located. META does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Mental Wellness Providers who provide services via the Platform. While META does reasonably vet the Mental Wellness appearing on the Platform, since the information received by META is provided by the Mental Wellness Provider, META cannot legally guarantee the accuracy or truthfulness of the verification of degrees, qualifications, licensure, certification, credentials, competence, or background of any Mental Wellness Provider. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Mental Wellness Provider.

If you are an individual accessing or using the Platform in your individual capacity, (a) the arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate, (b) any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances, and (c) if the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the American Arbitration Association or by the arbitrator. If you are an organization or an individual accessing or using the Platform on behalf of, or for the benefit of, an organization, the arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, in-person in the County of Cook in the State of Illinois, U.S.A.
The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You agree that the federal and state courts located in the County of Cook in the State of Illinois, U.S.A., will have such jurisdiction, and you hereby waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.

We may assign our rights and duties under these Terms at any time to any third party without notice. You may not assign these Terms without our prior written consent.
