Consent to Terms of Use

Please read these website terms of use ("Terms") carefully before using this website (the "Website"). Pulsar Informatics, Inc. ("Pulsar") operates this Website to provide online access to information about Pulsar and the products, services, information, and opportunities it provides ("Services"). These Terms govern your access to the Website, and the Website is available for your use only upon the condition that you agree to the Terms as set forth below. If you do not agree to all of the Terms, please immediately browse away from this page and the Website altogether and kindly do not access or use the Website again. By accessing or using the Website, you and any entity or employer you are authorized to represent ("You" or "Your") signify Your agreement to be bound by the Terms.

User Eligibility

The Website is available only to entities and persons over the legal age of majority for the purpose of forming binding contracts as defined by applicable law. If You are not of the legal age of majority for the purpose of forming binding contracts, You are not permitted to use the Website.

Informational Purposes Only

The Website and other materials provided or published by Pulsar may from time to time contain information related to various health, medical, and fitness conditions and their treatment, particularly in the areas of fatigue management and sleep science. These materials, as with all content appearing on the Website, are meant for informational purposes only. YOU AGREE THAT IN NO FASHION WHATSOEVER DO YOU CONSIDER ANY INFORMATION WITHIN THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE TO BE AN ACCEPTABLE SUBSTITUTE FOR PROPER MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT, OR CARE. You agree not to use the Services or any other content available on the Website for the diagnosis or treatment of any health condition, illness, or disease, whether related to fatigue management and sleep medicine or otherwise. If You have or suspect that You have a health condition or problem, You should consult a trained healthcare professional to determine what courses of treatment, if any, may be appropriate for you.

Authorization to Sell Medical Devices

Various products listed on the Website may not be licensed for sale in all countries, may be known by different names, or the indications for use may vary from country to country. As of the last update to these Terms (see Privacy Policy Modification Date, below), none of the products listed on the Website were required to be licensed for sale in the United States by any known licensing agency, including but not limited to the U. S. Food & Drug Administration.

Limited Scope of Product Functionality

Services made available on the Website may from time to time advertise or describe various Pulsar products, including the Pulsar PVT software (among others). The Pulsar PVT is designed to operate in such a manner that under some limited circumstances it can determine whether a given testing subject is not suitably rested to engage in active military duty or in certain high-risk industrial, laboratory, or transportation jobs. This determination, however, is one-way in its logic. It detects when someone is not suitable for work. It is understood that under no circumstances will the Pulsar PVT suffice to determine whether someone is positively suitable for work. Suitability for work depends upon a large number of factors, of which the Pulsar PVT tests only one—the vigilance level of psychomotor response. By way of non-limiting example, the Pulsar PVT does not test for judgment, intelligence, intoxication, physical fitness, overall attentiveness and motivation, neuro-motor coordination, mental illness, or job-specific training and skills (among others). By downloading and installing the Pulsar PVT, you specifically acknowledge this and other limitations of the Pulsar PVT and agree not to use the Pulsar PVT in a manner for which it was not intended. Vendor accepts no risk whatsoever for unauthorized and/or unlicensed use of the Pulsar PVT. Should you choose to ignore this warning, you do so at your sole and exclusive risk, and in so doing you are in breach of these Terms.

Restrictions on Use

In addition to the other restrictions set forth in these Terms, You agree that:

  • a) You will not use or access any service, information, application, or software available through the Website in a manner not explicitly permitted by Pulsar;
  • b) Certain areas of the Website may be restricted only to customers, suppliers, vendors, agents, investors, or other business partners of Pulsar;
  • c) You may not use or access the Website or the Services in any way that, in Pulsar's sole judgment, adversely affects the performance or function of the Website or the Services or otherwise interferes with ability of authorized parties to access the Website and the Services; and
  • d) You may not frame or utilize any framing techniques or technologies to enclose any portion or aspect of the Website or the Services on another Internet website or other computer network, without the express prior written permission of Pulsar.
