You may use our Services only to the extent permitted by law including applicable export and re-export laws and regulations. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate Services to you if you do not comply with our Terms and Conditions. This includes any misuse of our Services that encompasses, but is not limited to, interfering with our Services, accessing our Services using a method other than our standard interfaces, uploading child pornography or any other inappropriate content, inappropriate access to or manipulation of data on our systems, or reselling content from our Services in violation of our Terms and Conditions.

You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not Vy’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity or individuals that make it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our Terms and Conditions or the law.

Finally, we restrict access to personal information to Vy employees, contractors, and agents who need to know this information in order to deliver our Services. All of our employees, agents and contractors are subject to strict contractual confidentiality and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

Protected health information is information about an individual patient, including demographic information, that may identify an individual patient and that relates to that patient’s past, present or future physical or mental health or condition and related health care services. Any protected health information incorporated in your file names, either by design or inadvertently, is your responsibility including any HIPAA reporting requirements.
