Theator Inc. and its affiliates (“Theator”, “us“, “our“, or “we“) is the creator and owner of a real-world dataset software product comprised of two general modules for surgeons: (1) content management software; and (2) a visual operative report with analytics (collectively “Product“), available through Theator’s website (“Site“). These Terms of Service (“Terms“) govern your access and use of our Site and any services available thereon, including but not limited to the Product, Content, Derivative Works and Reports (all as defined below) (collectively, “Services“). Our Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice“) governs our collection, processing and transfer of any Personal Data (as such term is defined in the Privacy Notice). “You” means an individual using the Services independent or in the context of an agreement we have entered with a hospital or institution with which you are affiliated (“Institution” and “Customer Agreement“, respectively)
Please read these Terms carefully. By clicking on the button marked “I agree” you signify your assent to these Terms. Changes may be made to these Terms from time to time. If you do not agree to any of these Terms, please do not click the button marked “I agree” and do not use the Services.
In the event of a conflict between these terms and Customer Agreement we have entered with an Institution with which you are affiliated, the provisions of such Customer Agreement shall prevail.
The Product houses and analyzes video data from surgical operations and is intended to be utilized by surgeons to review and analyze prior surgeries for educational purposes. The Product does not provide real-time feedback to the surgeon during surgery and is not intended for use in making treatment decisions for patients.
Theator allows you to access the Site and use the Services subject to these Terms. Theator may, at its sole discretion and at any time, modify or discontinue providing the Site or Services or any part thereof without notice.
Use of the Services is void where prohibited by law. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that (a) any and all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (c) you are 18 years of age or older and have the ability to form a binding contract; and (d) your use of the Services does not violate any applicable law or regulation or any obligation you may have to a third party and you shall comply with applicable law throughout your use of the Site and/or Services.
Once you have registered an account you will be able to upload User Content (as defined below), which will be processed by the Services (the results of such processing, “Derivative Works“). The Services shall provide you with information in respect of the videos and data provided by you through the Services (“Reports“). Reports may include a video clip with highlights of videos uploaded by you as well as statistics and analytics related to videos and data uploaded. In your account you will be able to view any historical User Content uploaded by you and associated Reports. In addition, you may be able to search for Content, including videos and (medical) information regarding surgeries and procedures.
In order to use the Services, you will need to have a registered account. To complete the registration process, you must provide all registration information as requested by us. We may indicate that the provision of some information is optional but your agreement to provide such information may assist us in providing you with (improved) Services. Theator may refuse to open an account for any reason, at its sole discretion.
If you are using the Services in the context of a Customer Agreement we have entered with an Institution with which you are affiliated, your account may be opened by a user with an “Administrator” type account. If you are an Administrator, you represent and warrant that you received any necessary consents and have the full right and power to provide Theator with any Personal Data that you provide for registration purposes and that you are fully and solely responsible for ensuring that the Personal Data provided relates only to individuals associated with the applicable Institution.
You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or password. You are fully and solely responsible for the security of your computer system and/or mobile device and all activity on your account, even if such activities were not committed by you. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Theator will not be liable for any losses or damage arising from unauthorized use of the Services, and you agree to indemnify and hold Theator harmless for any unauthorized, improper or illegal use of your account, and any charges and taxes incurred, unless you have notified us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org that your account has been compromised and have requested that we block access to it, which we will do as soon as reasonably practicable. We do not police for and cannot guarantee that we will learn of or prevent any inappropriate use of the Services.

We reserve the right to investigate suspected violations of these Terms or illegal and inappropriate behavior through the Services. We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity, behavior or Content of anyone believed to have violated these Terms or to have engaged in illegal behavior in connection with the Services.
You may request termination of your Theator account at any time and for any reason by sending an email to email@example.com. Following such request, Theator shall close your account as soon as reasonably practicable. Any suspension, cancellation or termination of your account shall not affect your obligations under these Terms (including but not limited to ownership, indemnification, any representations and warranties made by you, and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, cancellation or termination.
Certain types of content may be made available through the Services. “Content” as used in these Terms means, collectively, all content on or made available through the Services, including any images, pictures, videos, information, documents and modifications or derivatives of the foregoing. Theator allows you to upload certain content, including but not limited to videos and medical information, comments, and annotations, on or through the Services, referred to herein as “User Content“.
You may be permitted to add comments or annotations to certain Content such as videos available through the Services.

You are in the best position to judge whether User Content is in violation of intellectual property or personal rights of any third-party. You accept full responsibility for avoiding infringement of the intellectual property or personal rights of others in connection with User Content. Theator will remove any Content (including without limitation any User Content) if properly notified of that such material infringes third party rights, and may do so at its sole discretion, without prior notice to users at any time.
If you believe that something appearing on the Services infringes your copyright, you may send us a notice requesting that it be removed, or access to it blocked. If you believe that such a notice has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA lets you send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the DMCA’s requirements. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Be aware that there can be substantial penalties for false claims. Send notices and counter-notices to us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
