9. The Report will be prepared by an external doctor engaged by us who is both registered with the General Medical Council and holds a license to practice (“Doctor”). We do not guarantee that the Doctor who provides the Services in respect of one order will be the same as the Doctor who provides the applicable aspects of the Services in respect of a subsequent order.

13. Our acceptance of your order for Services will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a Services contract will come into existence between you and us on the basis of these Careninja Customer Terms. You confirm that you request immediate performance of this contract for Services.
14. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this by email and we, on behalf of the Laboratory and the Doctor, will not charge you for the Services (or shall refund you). For example, in the case of unexpected limits on resources which we, the Laboratory or the Doctor could not reasonably plan for. You acknowledge that a refund of any amounts paid will be your only available remedy if we are unable to accept your order after it has been placed.
15. For Customers not opting for our subscription product, if you request further blood tests (including retests), each such request constitutes an additional and separate order which we will notify you as being accepted by us pursuant to these Careninja Customer Terms.
16. For Customers opting for our subscription product, your initial order constitutes acceptance of the Careninja Customer Terms for all subsequent tests.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
17. The price of the Services (which does not include tax) will be the price indicated on the order pages of the Site when you placed your order. We will provide you with an invoice on request, which, as per clauses 8 and 9 will set out the Laboratory’s costs of the Kit and the blood testing services and, where relevant, the Doctor’s costs of the Report preparation.

BLOOD TESTING PROCESS
21. Unless you are handed a Careninja Retail Kit or purchase one from a member of our team in person, we will usually post the Kit to you on the next working day after we have accepted your order. This Kit is for you to collect your own blood sample in accordance with the blood collection protocols provided, and contains instructions on how to submit your blood sample along with a request form. You must complete your personal details on the form provided entitled “request form” – and also on the blood sample(s). You acknowledge that blood samples that are not fully and correctly labeled cannot be processed. It is not possible to make changes to the request form once it has been sent to the Laboratory.
22. The validity of the Kit will expire after 60 days of delivery to you, so you are required to collect and post your blood sample to the Laboratory at the address provided within that period. You acknowledge that test outcomes depend on the quality of the blood sample provided by you, so you agree to adhere to the blood collection protocols provided. If you do not follow these protocols a defective or partial test result may occur. We may, at our discretion, give you the opportunity of retesting free of charge if a partial result is reported by the Laboratory, and/or similarly if your blood sample was clotted at the time of receipt by the Laboratory.
23. We anticipate that the Report will typically be available within 2-7 working days from the date your blood sample is received by the Laboratory. We will notify you by email that your Account dashboard has been updated accordingly.
24. The Report is prepared solely on the basis of your blood sample and the information which you have provided to us, without access to your full medical records. Whilst tailored to your personal information, you understand the Report is generic in nature.
25. This means that (i) you must not rely on the Report to diagnose or treat suspected or actual medical conditions; and (ii) you are solely responsible for any actions you do (or do not) take before and after receiving the Report, and when you take (or do not take) such actions.
26. We recommend that you always consult an appropriate medical professional for advice on your specific circumstances and situation, in particular before adopting any of the general healthcare of lifestyle advice offered in the Report or otherwise via the Services.
27. You accept that any incomplete or inaccurate information on your health profile may lead to incomplete or inaccurate interpretation and healthcare and lifestyle advice.
28. You assume full responsibility for reading, and drawing conclusions from the results and report obtained from use of the Services (including the Report and your Account dashboard) and understand that we do not offer follow-up consultations based on the results.

OUR RIGHT TO CANCEL THE SERVICES CONTRACT

(a) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is
necessary for us, the Laboratory and the Doctor to provide the Services;
(b) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow the Laboratory to deliver the Kit to you; or

37. By placing your order, you agree and represent to us that you are legally capable of entering into this binding agreement between you and us; that you are at least 18 years old and you have completed an accurate and up-to-date request form identifying the blood sample as one taken from yourself. We shall have no liability for any loss or damage caused by errors or omissions in any information provided by you in connection with the Services, or any action taken by us, the Laboratory or the Doctor at your direction. Omissions include pertinent medical information without which the doctor is
unable to produce a reasonable report based on the available results.
38. By placing your order, you acknowledge the potential impacts and risks of taking your own blood sample, and that (subject to clause 39) you are proceeding on the basis that you accept full responsibility for any outcomes or consequences that may arise from this.
39. You acknowledge and agree that the Services are not a substitute for actual medical diagnosis or consultation with a doctor, and that the information contained in the Report does not constitute medical advice and/or recommendations for medical treatment regarding any aspect of your health, medicine intake, nutrition or lifestyle.
40. You acknowledge that the Report and that the information contained in it may not be comprehensive (including information which would could be obtained through blood testing but was not identified in your Report for any reason).
41. You acknowledge and agree that in rare cases, viable blood samples cannot always be taken from the blood sample actually provided. Services will be deemed successfully performed if the Doctor believes there is sufficient information in the blood test results to produce a report, in which event no further tests will be carried out.
42. You acknowledge and agree that minor inter-laboratory variability exists. Consequently, where minor results variability is seen, for example upon tracking an individual test over time, such minor variability is tolerated and you assume overall responsibility for overseeing your long-term trends. You also agree that on occasion, because of inter-laboratory variability, minor changes may throw two adjacent test points narrowly inside and outside of ‘normal’ reference range but are essentially indicating insignificant variation.
43. If we fail to comply with these Careninja Customer Terms, we are responsible for direct loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
THIRD PARTY TERMS
44. Services are only supplied for domestic and private use. If you use the Services with our consent, written or otherwise, for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, loss of business opportunity or any other form of indirect loss.
45. If you receive the Services via any commercial, business or re-sale third party channel, we will have no liability to you for any such third party’s provision of the Services to you which will be entirely governed by the agreement between you and the third party.
46. If you receive third party services as part of a follow-up consequent to the results received as part of the Careninja Services, clause 45 applies even if continuity with Careninja is maintained via the Platform or ongoing Services.
47. If you receive third party doctor advice as part of a follow-up consequent to the results or doctor report known as Careninja Services, irrespective of whether Careninja provided the follow-up pathway, clause 45 applies.
