My Life Check

By clicking below I am registering for the American Heart Association’s free My Life Check Health Assessment (“Assessment”), and agreeing to provide certain personal information to the American Heart Association, Inc. ("AHA") that will be used for the purposes described in this Agreement. By clicking below, you are further agreeing to these terms and conditions that set out how your personal information will be collected and used.

To use My Life Check Health Assessment, you must first register. Registration requires that you select one of the health resolutions available on the registration screen, and enter your first name or nick name, e-mail address and zip code. AHA will use the information you provide to send you AHA e-newsletters, send you requests to participate in future marketing research surveys, and to populate the Heat Map (located on the Community page of the My Life Check web site). The Heat Map will display your first name or nickname, health resolution and zip code on the Map. The Heat Map is available for viewing by the general public. Use of your personal information is governed by AHA’s Privacy Policy.

Once you register for the Assessment, you will see a screen that prompts you to “Take the Assessment.” To take the Assessment you must agree to further terms and conditions regarding the health information you enter into the Assessment. Your health information is not linked to the personal information you provide during registration. Your health information is stored in de-identified form on a separate server, and is only used by AHA in aggregate with other users of the Assessment. This means that the information will be stored in a matter that does not permit the identification of a specific individual without extraordinary effort. 

Because your health information is de-identified, your health information will not be saved and will not be retrievable by you when you use the Assessment on subsequent occasions. You will need to enter this information each time you use the tool.

AHA may aggregate your de-identified information with like information from other people and may disclose such non-identifying or aggregated information to other parties, including but not limited to sponsors, researchers and third party service providers of the AHA.

I acknowledge and agree that the AHA may discontinue certain AHA programs without notice to me and that I shall have no continuing rights in the AHA programs upon such termination.

I assert that I am the person about whom the information I am providing relates.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE INFORMATION IN THE ASSESSMENT IS PROVIDED 'AS IS' FOR GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY. IT IS NOT INTENDED, OR TO BE CONSTRUED, AS MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT, AND IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR CONSULTATIONS WITH QUALIFIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH YOUR INDIVIDUAL MEDICAL NEEDS.

AHA PROVIDES THE ASSESSMENT 'AS IS' WITH ALL FAULTS AND MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY REGARDING THE ASSESSMENT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, CORRECTNESS, TIMELINESS OR USEFULNESS OF ANY INFORMATION, PROGRAMS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES, OR OTHER MATERIAL PROVIDED THROUGH THE ASSESSMENT, OR OF RELIABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. AHA MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO THE ASSESSMENT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR FREE, OR FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL ELEMENTS, AND SUCH WARRANTIES ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.

You agree that you release, and agree to indemnify, defend, save and hold harmless AHA, its affiliates, and its and their officers, directors, employees, contractors, volunteers, sponsors and agents from all claims arising out of or related to your access or your use of, or your inability to use the Assessment or AHA’s collection, use, storage or disclosure of your personal or medical information. IN NO EVENT WILL AHA OR ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS AND THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, VOLUNTEERS, SPONSORS AND AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU, ANYONE CLAIMING BY THROUGH OR UNDER YOU, OR ANYONE ELSE FOR (i) ANY DECISION OR ACTION TAKEN, OR NOT TAKEN, IN RELIANCE UPON THE INFORMATION CONTAINED OR PROVIDED THROUGH THE ASSESSMENT, (ii) CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE ASSESSMENT, (iii) YOUR USE OF THE ASSESSMENT, (iv) AHA'S USE OR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL OR MEDICAL INFORMATION OR (v) FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, POSSIBLE HEALTH SIDE EFFECTS, LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS OR SAVINGS, EVEN IF THE AHA KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, CLAIMS, DEMANDS OR ACTIONS. The foregoing release, indemnity, and limitation of liability shall be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the state in which you live.

The Assessment (including any linked sites) may be accessed from the United States of America, as well as from other countries around the world.  THIS USER AGREEMENT, AND YOUR USE AND ACCESS OF THE ASSESSMENT IS GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICT OF LAWS RULES.

If you choose to access the Assessment from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and you are responsible for compliance with local laws.
