These terms apply to your access to, and use of, the entire contents of the https://app.melonhealth.com/ website and the Melon iOS and Android applications ("Services"), including any unique URL that we may provide to you via that website or native application, and any services made available to you via or in relation to Melon. The website, applications, and the products, offerings, content and materials offered through the websites and applications (including but not limited to health coaching and peer group support) are collectively called the "Services" in these terms.

The Services are provided by or on behalf of Pegasus Health Apps Ltd (also called "Melon", "we", "us" and "our" in these terms).

These terms form a legal agreement between you and us. You are considered to have accepted these terms if you click to confirm your acceptance or agreement (where this option is provided to you) or if you otherwise view, access or use the Services in any way.

If you do not agree to these terms, you are not permitted to use the Services.

1. Your right to use the Services

So long as you comply with these terms, we grant you a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to access and use the Services in the manner we make them available to you from time to time.

You are granted different rights in relation to the Melon Content, as set out in section 2 below.

Except as set out above, you are not granted any other rights in relation to the Services.

2. Your right to use the Melon Content

As a part of the Services, information (including images, audio and videos) will be made available to you on Melon to access and use (the "Content"). So long as you comply with these terms, we grant you a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to access, use, copy, modify and print Content solely for your personal use in the manner we make it available to you from time to time and subject to any other terms and conditions that accompany the Melon Content.

You represent and warrant to us that you have the right and authority to grant these rights and Your Content will not violate these terms.

If this agreement ends for any reason, or your profile account is closed (in accordance with section 13 (Ending the Services and this agreement) below), you will no longer have access to Your Content. We will retain Your Content for a period, dictated by legal requirements and best practice.

You will not be able to access Your Content once your profile account has been closed or this agreement ends.

From time to time, we may change these terms. We will endeavour to give you notice before the new version of the terms take effect by either emailing you with notice of the changed terms (sent to the email address you gave us when you signed up to the Services), or by displaying a notice as part of the Services (for example, on Melon). Any use by you of the Services after the new version of the terms has been posted on Melon and confirms your acceptance of the new version of the terms.

8. Your responsibilities

Such use and activity is collectively called "Your Activity" in these terms.

Taking any of the steps above does not limit any other rights or remedies that may be available to us.

Ending this agreement or any of the Services does not affect sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15 and 16 (which will continue to operate) or any rights or remedies that have accrued beforehand.

14. Limitation and exclusions of liability

If we or Our Personnel are liable to you for any reason, and for any reason we have not been able to exclude that liability under these terms, then the total aggregate liability of us and Our Personnel (together) to you in relation to the Services, the Melon Content, Your Content and all things we or Our Personnel have done or not done (including any breach of these terms) will under no circumstances exceed NZ$100.

The total aggregate liability above, and any exclusions or disclaimers of liability in these terms, shall apply however liability arises, whether in contract, in tort (including negligence), for breach of statutory duty or otherwise.

We will not be responsible or liable for any failure or delay to perform our obligations due to any cause that is beyond our reasonable control or any failure by you to perform any of your obligations.

15. Indemnity

You fully indemnify us from and against all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and costs arising from or related to Your Activity or any breach of these terms by you.

16. General

In these terms, words in the singular include the plural and vice versa; any examples in these terms, and references to "including" and similar words, are illustrative only and do not imply any limitations; and clause and other headings are for ease of reading only and do not affect the interpretation of these terms.

You may only subcontract, transfer or assign any of your rights or obligations under these terms with our prior written consent. We may subcontract, transfer or assign all or any part of our rights or obligations under these terms.

These terms constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us in respect to its subject matter and replaces all previous agreements, understandings and representations relating to that subject matter and any additional or different terms that you may provide to us (including on any purchase orders).

Anything we need to notify or tell you of in writing under these terms may be sent to you by email to the last address you gave us writing. We can assume that any communication from us (including those sent by email or post) has been received by you two days (or seven days if by international post) after it was sent unless we have been notified to the contrary (for example, if we receive notice of failure or delay in the delivery of an email).

Any waiver of any of these terms must be in writing and signed by one of our authorised representatives. Any delay or failure by us to exercise any right does not prevent us from exercising that right, or any other right, on that or any other occasion.

If any provision of these terms is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable it shall be deemed to be amended so that it accomplishes the original purpose of that provision as far as possible. The legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected.

These terms are governed by the laws of New Zealand and you submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts.
