Subscriber agrees and understands that Mobile Health operates in a Cloud environment, whereby Mobile Health licenses the use of virtual servers that are remotely hosted by a third party that meets HIPAA standards for securing PHI. Subscriber acknowledges and understands that Mobile Health does not own its own cloud, rather it licenses use in a cloud owned by a third party. Subscriber understands and agrees to the following:
a. Subscriber Access. Subscriber shall have the right to access to the cloud network and to its own data at all times except during regularly scheduled maintenance. If at any time the cloud host determines that it must migrate data due to server degradation or otherwise, it shall notify the Subscriber wherever possible in advance, or if not possible shall notify the Subscriber promptly following migration. All reasonable efforts shall be made to secure the data and ensure that data is not lost;
b. No Warranty. Mobile Health expressly does not warrant that any remotely hosted cloud will continue to host Mobile Health and its subscribers indefinitely, or that any remote host will have unlimited storage capacity for Subscriber’s data.
c. Data Security.
i. Encryption. Mobile Health is fully familiar with HIPAA’s Privacy Rule and regulations and HIPAA standards regarding the encryption of all PHI in transmission (“in-flight”) and in storage (“at-rest”). Mobile Health and its remote host vendor use the same data encryption mechanisms used in a traditional computing environment to protect the security of PHI. Mobile Health utilizes a encryption technologies such as 256 bit AES algorithms. Subscriber agrees and understands that it shall be responsible for using a secure HTTP connections for all web applications running in the cloud to ensure that any PHI is protected as it travels to and from the cloud and the Subscriber’s web browser. Should Subscriber request it, a complete firewall solution is available as more fully described in the Policies and Procedures.
ii. Authorized Access. Mobile Health warrants and represents that neither it nor its employees, nor its cloud host shall access any subscriber PHI, nor have any access to Subscriber’s operating systems. While Subscriber may request that Mobile Health or its cloud host access its data in cases where it seeks maintenance or support, access is not generally required. However, where access may be requested, Subscriber agrees to provide Mobile Health or its cloud host access for such limited purpose, shall be as limited as possible so as to grant the least access required to perform the requested maintenance or support, and any authentication identifiers or access keys issued for such access shall be revoked immediately following performance of the requested maintenance or service.

Audit trails will be available for Subscriber to copy, print or download to its own servers, discs or hard drives. Subscriber shall be solely responsible to maintain a record of such audit trails it being agreed and understood that neither Mobile Health nor its remote host shall have the obligation to store audit records indefinitely and shall have no obligation to maintain unlimited data storage on behalf of any Subscriber, unless Subscriber requests such additional storage capabilities, as more fully described in Policies and Procedures.
iv. Data Back-Up and Disaster Recovery. Subscriber shall have access to a redundant storage system and data back up plan at any time during the term of this Subscription which shall assist Subscriber in securing relevant and sensitive data and ensure its availability in the event of a disaster.

Data so stored can be accessed at any time as more fully described in the Policies and Procedures.

a. Scope of Proprietary Information. In the performance of their respective responsibilities pursuant to this Agreement, Mobile Health and Subscribers may come into possession of certain Proprietary Information of the others. For the purposes hereof, “Proprietary Information” means all trade secrets, business plans, marketing plans, know-how, data, contracts, documents, scientific and medical concepts, member and customer lists, costs, financial information, profits and billings, and referral sources, existing or future services, products, operations, management, pricing, financial status, goals, strategies, objectives, and agreements, whether written or verbal, that are confidential in nature; provided, however, that “Proprietary Information” does not include Patient Data or any information that:
i. Is in the public domain;
ii. Is already known or obtained by any other party other than in the course of the other party’s performance pursuant to this Agreement;
iii. Is independently developed by any other party; and/or
iv. Becomes known from an independent source having the right to disclose such information and without similar restrictions as to disclosure and use and without breach of this Agreement, or any other confidentiality or nondisclosure agreement by such other party.
b. Nondisclosure of Proprietary Information. Mobile Health and the Subscriber each (i) shall keep and maintain in strict confidence all Proprietary Information received from the other, or from any of the other’s employees, accountants, attorneys, consultants, or other agents and representatives, in connection with the performance of their respective obligations under this Agreement; (ii) shall not use, reproduce, distribute or disclose any such Proprietary Information except as permitted by this Agreement; and (iii) shall prevent its employees, accountants, attorneys, consultants, and other agents and representatives from making any such use, reproduction, distribution, or disclosure.

The unauthorized disclosure of said Proprietary Information would have a detrimental impact on the Disclosing Party. The damages resulting from said detrimental impact would be difficult to ascertain but would result in irreparable loss. It would require a multiplicity of actions at law and in equity in order to seek redress against the receiving party in the event of such an unauthorized disclosure. The Disclosing Party shall be entitled to equitable relief in preventing a breach of this Section 13 (Proprietary Information) and such equitable relief is in addition to any other rights or remedies available to the Disclosing Party.
d. Notice of Disclosure. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, nothing in this Section 13 (Proprietary Information) shall prohibit or be deemed to prohibit a party hereto from disclosing any Proprietary Information (or any other information the disclosure of which is otherwise prohibited hereunder) to the extent that such party becomes legally compelled to make such disclosure by reason of a subpoena or order of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body of competent jurisdiction, and such disclosures are expressly permitted hereunder; provided, however, that a party that has been requested or becomes legally compelled to make a disclosure otherwise prohibited hereunder by reason of a subpoena or order of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body of competent jurisdiction shall provide the other party with written notice thereof within ten (10) calendar days, or, if sooner, at least five (5) business days before such disclosure will be made so that the other party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy. In no event shall a party be deemed to be liable hereunder for compliance with any such subpoena or order of any court, administrative agency or other governmental body of competent jurisdiction.
14. Disclaimers, Exclusions of Warranties and Limitations of Liability.
a. Third Party Carrier Lines. By using the System and the Services, the Subscriber acknowledges that access to the System is to be provided over various facilities and communications lines, and information will be transmitted over local exchange and Internet backbone carrier lines and through routers, switches, and other devices (collectively, “Carrier Lines”) owned, maintained, and serviced by third-party carriers, utilities, and Internet service providers, all of which are beyond Mobile Health’s control. Mobile Health assumes no liability for or relating to the integrity, privacy, security, confidentiality, or use of any information while it is transmitted on the Carrier Lines, or any delay, failure, interruption, interception, loss, transmission, or corruption of any data or other information attributable to transmission on the Carrier Lines.
