We may change or revise these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. Periodically visit this page to review the current Terms. Your access and use of the Website and Services will be subject to the most current version of the Terms. Your use of the Website and Services after such revised Terms are made available will signify your acceptance of such revised Terms and your agreement to be bound by them. If you disagree with any change to the Terms, you may close your Account and refrain from using the Services. Continuing to use the Services after we post or communicate a change signifies that you consent to the revised Terms.
We provide the following Services:
- a mental health self-assessment tool;
- a variety of on-line content and tools that may be relevant to you;
- if requested, instructions on how to access peer support or a mental health professional; and
- the provision of other information about Greenspace and our services.
The Services do not include the provision by Greenspace of health care services, mental health services or social or psychotherapy services, or any other professional services. Greenspace is a technology service provider that provides assessment, content and facilitates access to others that may provide such services.
Professional service providers or peer support workers that you may access are not the employees or agents of Greenspace and are not credentialed by Greenspace. Greenspace does not have any oversight of the care provided to you by providers. Each Provider is an independent practitioner who is solely responsible for any health care services or social or psychotherapy services provided to you, and is also solely responsible for obtaining your informed consent, where required, to any medical treatment.
While the Services may provide access to certain general medical information, the Services cannot and are not intended to provide medical advice. We advise you to always seek the advice of a physician or other regulated health professional with any questions regarding your personal health or medical conditions. Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from your physician or other regulated health professional because of something you have read on the Website. If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem or condition, please contact a physician or other regulated health professional immediately.
The content on the Website is not and should not be considered medical advice or a substitute for individual medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. You should always talk to your physician or other regulated health professional for diagnosis and treatment, including information regarding which drugs or treatment may be appropriate for you. None of the information on the website represents or warrants that any particular drug or treatment is safe, appropriate, or effective for you.
To use certain features of the Website or certain Services, you must establish an account (“Account”). Your right to access and use the Website and Services is personal to you and is not transferable by you to any other person or entity. Upon registration, you will provide a username and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user ID and password and for any and all activities that occur under your Account. You may not use the account of any other user, without that user’s permission. You agree to immediately notify Greenspace of any unauthorized use of your password or username or any other breach of security.
We reserve the right to deny you access to the Services or any part thereof, in order to maintain or restore security or performance to the Services. We may also do so if we reasonably believe you are in breach of these Terms or your Account has been or may be being used or may be used by an unauthorized person.
There is no guarantee that you will be accepted as a registered user of the Services.

Your only right, recourse or remedy with respect to any problems or dissatisfaction with the Services is to immediately cease use of our Services.
