3. The Service

3.1 Registration

3.1.1 An individual registers as a Lifekeys User by creating a User Account and uses that account to book a session to see a Psychologist and/or use other Services provided on the Site. These Services may include a combination of the Mental Health Check, courses, exercises and Pulses. The Services may also be used for self-monitoring purposes.

3.1.2 Use of the Service requires pre-registration and compliance with these Terms at all times. You must be at least sixteen (16) years of age to register and use the Service. The Service is for personal use only.

3.1.3 You warrant that you will use the Service in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Service is not permitted in jurisdictions where the Service or any part of it may violate any laws or regulations. You agree not to access or use the Service in such jurisdictions. You agree not to provide inaccurate, misleading or inaccurate information in connection with your use of the Service. If the information you have provided to us eventually becomes inaccurate, misleading or inaccurate, you should immediately notify us of the changes.

3.1.4 We reserve the right to require our approval of a registration, either in advance or afterwards. We have the right to refuse registration, for any reason. Registration can be restricted, for example, in terms of territory.

3.1.5 You agree that you will not create more than one Account, or create an Account for anyone other than yourself without first receiving permission from the other person. In exchange for your use of the Service and, if applicable, in order for providers to send notices to you, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by our Account enrollment form (understanding you may use an anonymous user name or nickname after you provide certain personal and emergency Contact Information). Lifekeys will not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else accessing and using your Account, either with or without your knowledge.

3.1.6 You must provide the email address and telephone number to which you wish Lifekeys to send confirmation, reminder and other messages from time to time. You confirm and accept that the specified contact information can be used by Lifekeys to contact you via mail and note mailing with information and offers. You have the right to deregister specifically for this communication.

3.2 The Psychologists and Counselling Services

3.2.1 By using the Consultation Service, you agree that consultations and assessments are conducted by means of an audio or video call delivered by Lifekeys. The User can describe his or her condition to the Psychologist in more detail during the Consultation. Based on the User’s information, the Psychologist suggests appropriate treatment to the User.

3.2.2 Lifekeys offers sessions with Psychologists to Users at the level of primary care. This therefore corresponds to the level of care offered at a medical centre, health centre or similar. For this reason, Lifekeys cannot offer care that requires specialist expertise in psychiatry. This means that in the case of obtaining information on such a situation, Lifekeys' Psychologists are entitled to discontinue treatment/sessions with Users who are deemed to be at the wrong level of care.

3.2.3 In connection with the use of the Service, the Psychologist may consider that a closer examination, physically and/or psychologically, may be necessary. In such cases, the Psychologist will recommend that the User consult his or her physician/GP.

3.2.4 A User cannot obtain any type of prescription through the Service or from a Psychologist. In case of requests for medical assessment and/or prescriptions, the User is advised to contact his or her physician/GP.

3.2.5 We require every Psychologist providing Consultation Services on the Platform to be an accredited, trained, and experienced licensed clinical Psychologist. Psychologists must have a relevant academic degree and experience in their field and have to be qualified and certified by their respective professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice requirements as applicable.

3.2.6 The Psychologists are independent providers who are neither our employees nor agents nor representatives. The Platform's role is limited to enabling the Consultations while the Consultations themselves are the responsibility of the Psychologist who provides them. If you feel the Consultations provided by the Psychologists do not fit your needs or expectations, you may change to a different Psychologist who provides services through the Platform.

3.2.7 While we hope the Consultation Services are beneficial to you, you understand, agree and acknowledge that they may not be the appropriate solution for everyone's needs and that they may not be appropriate for every particular situation and/or may not be a complete substitute for a face-to-face examination and/or care in every particular situation.

3.2.8 Lifekeys is only a technical service provider of the consultation provided by the Psychologist, and Lifekeys shall not, in any respect, be regarded as a Consultation provider. The agreement concluded between you and Lifekeys is therefore only to be considered as a service agreement for the provision of a technical solution.

3.2.9 Lifekeys is not responsible for the consultation, information or recommendation provided by the Psychologist in the consultation session.

3.2.10 In order to receive approval to practice with Lifekeys, the psychologists must be found to be in compliance with the policies and procedures of Lifekeys, federal and state guidelines, and must receive written approval from Lifekeys. This verification process includes, but is not limited to relevant experience and qualifications psychologists need to be approved of.

3.3 Prices and payment

3.3.1 Creating a user account with Lifekeys is free. Psychologist consultations through the Service are subject to a fee. Fee depends on the length of consultation. As of today, Lifekeys offers consultations per 50 minutes with different prices. In addition, 5 and 10 consultations (a 50 min) packs are also offered at discounted rates. The fee may change from time to time, and the applicable fee will always appear in the Service before accessing a payment option and the Service. See the Website for updated prices. If you use a discount coupon or where the cost of the consultation is covered by insurance or other agreements with the organisation and / or the employer, the price may be lower, or the consultation may be free of charge.

3.3.2 Video consultation will last for 50 minutes. You are responsible for being ready to use the login service when the consultation begins.

An updated list of accepted browsers can be found on the homepage. You are not entitled to any refunds of the fee if such is the case. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, without a prior notice, the session will be cancelled and charged in full.

3.3.3 Please note that using the Service requires Internet access, which may be subject to additional fees from your carrier.

3.3.4 The order is not valid until the payment is registered on the specified payment card. Current fees are charged to you, and payment is due before each psychology consultation.

By agreeing to these terms, you consent to us charging you through the payment method (s) available in the Service.

3.3.7.1 You have the right to withdrawal. You must contact our Customer Service at contact@lifekeyshealth.com within the period of 14 days from your purchase to exercise this right, albeit with the following limitations:

  • The purchase to be refunded must be a valid order as defined in §3.3.4;
