Last Updated: June 3, 2020
As used herein, “Organization” means any Registered User who (a) is an officer, director, manager or supervisor at the applicable User’s organization and (b) is granted administrative privileges for such User’s Meenta Account. “Member” means any Registered User who is a member of the applicable User’s organization, including any employee, independent contractor, faculty member or student, as applicable. Using the functionality of the Site, Organizations may (i) invite Members to register for the Site and (ii) designate Members for collection and testing of human samples (“Specimens), as further described below.
1. Testing Services and Host Responsibilities
If you are an Organization, you may submit online orders (each, a “Testing Order”) requesting that a Host (a) provide quantities of Specimen collection devices or supplies (“Collection Supplies”), (b) perform Testing Services on Specimens collected from Members of your organization, and (c) make available the Results of such tests in accordance with Section 3 below. The fees for the requested Testing Services (the “Testing Fees”) will be made available for you to review before you are required to submit the final Testing Order.
After you submit a Testing Order, the Host will deliver to you the Collection Supplies. Unless the Testing Order provides otherwise, either Meenta or the Host will make available a nurse or other healthcare professional (the “Collection HCP”) to collect Specimens at the designated Testing Location (as defined below). Upon delivery of Specimens to the Host in accordance with Section 2 below, the Host will use commercially reasonable efforts to perform the Testing Services on your behalf.
2. User Responsibilities
You acknowledge and agree that collection of Specimens by the Collection HCP, and performance of Testing Services and delivery of Results by the Host, are dependent upon your timely completion of the User responsibilities and other activities set forth herein and in the applicable Testing Order (collectively, the “User Responsibilities”). Neither Meenta nor the Host shall be responsible for any delays relating to Specimen collection, provision of Testing Services or delivery of Results to the extent due to your failure to perform the User Responsibilities.
The User Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:
Upon completion of the Testing Services, we will notify you by e-mail (at the e-mail address specified in your Meenta Account) or via the Communication Tool that the Results are available to be viewed on the Site at the URL we provide. To the extent any Results include the results of individual Members’ COVID-19 viral or antibody tests: (i) each Member will have access to the complete results of his or her test, in the form made available by the Host; and (ii) the Organization will only have access to whether each Member tested positive or negative for the virus or antibodies (or, if the presence of the virus or antibodies cannot be determined, that the result was equivocal or inconclusive), as applicable.

5. Compliance with Laws
Meenta shall cause Hosts that perform Testing Services to maintain all licenses, permits and certifications required under applicable law for its performance of the Testing Services.
6. Testing Services: Additional User Attestations, Representations and Warranties
7. Use of Results
The Results should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude COVID-19 infection, to inform infection status, or to make determinations with respect to returning to work or other public exposure, and Meenta shall have no responsibility or liability for any such decisions or determinations. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Meenta and its directors, officers, employees and agents, from and against any damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ reasonable fees) arising out of any actual or threatened claim by any third party (including a claim made by a Host against Meenta) to the extent due to or based on your use or disclosure of the Results, including (a) your unauthorized disclosure of Results or other Member PHI or (b) any decisions or determinations made by you or any third party based upon the Results.
