Listening and Therapy Services

OUR SERVICE SHOULD NOT BE USED IN AN EMERGENCY. LISTENERS ON UPBY5 ARE NOT TRAINED OR QUALIFIED TO HELP THOSE IN NEED. ALL CRISIS CHATS WILL BE DISCONTINUED INSTANTLY. IMMEDIATELY CALL 911 (OR THE VALID EMERGENCY NUMBER IN YOUR COUNTRY) AND NOTIFY THE POLICE OR URGENT HEALTH CARE IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SUICIDE, IF YOU FEEL YOU MAY BE A DANGER TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS, OR IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER MEDICAL EMERGENCY.

 

You acknowledge and accept that Listeners and Therapists are not UpBy5's employees, agents, or representatives and that UpBy5 is not liable for any act or omission by any such Listener or Therapist. Although a psychological or medical health expert, physician, solicitor, or other expert Listener or Therapist may have been obtained through UpBy5, UpBy5 cannot forecast or assess the professional's or other Listener or Therapist's expertise or suitability for your needs.

 

You also agree and acknowledge that the involvement of UpBy5 is strictly limited to giving access to such Listeners and Therapists for your consideration and that you take total responsibility for decisions to access a Listener or Therapist through the Site and to keep going to interact with the Listener or Therapist. Your connection with the Listener or Therapist with respect to the Listening and Therapy Services is stringent. We have no involvement with the relationship's real content or any aspect of the Listening or Therapy Service.

 

If certain suspicious or possibly dangerous behavior is found, information communicated between User and Therapist during online therapy services may be evaluated by UpBy5 on a regular basis to conduct quality control, resolve potential safety problems, and avoid exploitation of our platform. We may also undertake research and development using aggregated data from conversation transcripts.

 

UpBy5 will maintain all relevant confidentiality/HIPAA/privacy requirements when examining this information. UpBy5 makes no depiction or guarantee as to (a) the precision or accessibility of the Listening Platform or the Sites, (b) the willingness or ability of any Listener or Therapist to listen, (c) the intention or possibility of any Listener or Therapist to offer guidance, (d) whether the Member will find a Listener or Therapist beneficial or favorable, (e) whether the Member will find a Listener's or Therapist's advice appropriate, effective, factual, or reasonable; (f) whether the Listener's or Therapist's listening will be beneficial; (g) whether the Listener's or Therapist's advice will be attentive or applicable to the Member's inquiry; or (h) whether the Listener's or Therapist's advice will otherwise be suitable to the Member's needs.

 

Listeners' abilities, degrees, qualifications, credentials, or backgrounds are not verified by UpBy5. While UpBy5 verifies the licensing, qualifications, and credentials of Therapists who provide services via UpBy5, you agree that such verification of any Therapist's abilities, education, credentials, qualifications, experience, or background is not guaranteed. You are responsible for doing independent verification on any Therapist who supplies you with Therapy Services.

 

CHECK THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL'S, MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL'S, PHYSICIAN'S, ATTORNEY'S, OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL LISTENER'S CERTIFICATION AND/OR LICENSING WITH THE RELEVANT STATE LICENSURE BOARD OR OFFICIALS IN THE LISTENER'S STATE OR COUNTRY.

 

If you pay through the Platform or make any other payment to us, the money goes to the Therapist for the Therapist's Services. For the usage and operation of the Platform, we may charge the Therapist a fraction of this amount. Regardless of payment, we shall not be considered the Therapist for any Therapy Services. Furthermore, the Therapist, not you, is responsible for paying for the usage of the Platform.
