Our Services are designed to help each of our users (“User”, “you”, and “yours”) build emotional intelligence, by heightening their level of self-awareness and self-knowledge through guided content, exercises, and daily reflections.

The Site and Application are copyrighted works belonging to Paradym Ltd. (“Paradym”, “us”, “our”, and “we”).  Certain features of the Services may be subject to additional guidelines, terms, or rules, which will be posted on the Site in connection with such features. 

Why should you read these Terms? These Terms create a legally binding agreement between you and us. By accessing or using the Services, you are accepting these Terms. These Terms tell you who we are, how we will provide Services to you, how you and we may change or end these Terms, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these Terms, please contact us to discuss.

What to do if you don’t want to accept these Terms? If you do not agree with all of the provisions of these Terms, do not access and/or use the Services.

We make no claims, representations or guarantees that the Services provide a therapeutic benefit.

  • Health information is provided for convenience only. Any health information and links on the Services, whether provided by Paradym or from outside providers, is provided simply for your convenience.
  • We are not responsible for your decisions and actions. Any advice or other materials in the Services are intended for general information purposes only. They are not intended to be relied upon and are not a substitute for professional medical advice based on your individual condition and circumstances. The advice and other materials we make available are intended to support the relationship between you and your healthcare providers (if applicable) and not replace it. We are not liable or responsible for any consequences of your having read or been told about such advice or other materials as you assume full responsibility for your decisions and actions. In particular, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we make no representation or warranties about the accuracy, completeness, or suitability for any purpose of the advice, other materials and information published as part of the Services.

  3. Other important terms
    • Headings and Interpretation. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means “including without limitation”.
    • Corporate and other consumer communities. While Paradym is aimed at consumers like you, there is increasing interest by large consumer communities (corporations, universities, hospitals, etc.) (“Communities”) to introduce the Services to their employees and members. In some cases, these Communities may supplement these Terms with their own terms and conditions. In such event, these Community terms and conditions shall also apply to your use of the Services. In the event of any conflict with such additional terms and these Terms, these Terms shall prevail.
    • We may transfer these Terms to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation – for example, this could include another member of our group of companies or someone who buys our business. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under these Terms.
    • Nobody else has any rights under these Terms. These Terms are between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
    • If a court finds part of these Terms illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the Sections of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining Sections will remain in full force and effect.
    • Even if we delay in enforcing these Terms, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking these Terms, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
    • The laws that apply to these Terms and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and we both agree to submit to the non‑exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. This means that if you reside in the EU, you may bring a claim to enforce your consumer protection rights in connection with these Terms in England or in the EU country in which you live.
