DigiBite offers a platform (the “Teledentistry Platform”) through which individuals may access dental services, such as examinations and second opinions (the “Teledentistry Services”), from dental professionals (the “Teledentistry Providers”) without being in the same physical space as a Teledentistry Provider. Teledentistry Services may be provided through live two-way audio and video or store and forward electronic communications between individuals and the Teledentistry Providers. The Teledentistry Providers are third-party service providers, and DigiBite does not control, supervise or interfere with the practices of such third parties. DigiBite provides and supports the Teledentistry Platform, and supports certain activities, such as scheduling and payment, in connection with the Teledentistry Services. DigiBite is not a Teledentistry Provider or otherwise a healthcare provider or dental professional. As part of the registration process for a DigiBite Account and/or the use of certain DigiBite Services, DigiBite may collect certain personal information, including health or medical information, that may be protected under applicable laws, including without limitation the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).
