Version 0.8 – March 9, 2018
  1) Scope of the Terms

These General Terms and Conditions (GTC) regulate the business relationship between persons who have registered for the beta subscription (these persons are hereinafter called "beta subscribers") of med111 and the provider of med111, Infomed-Verlags-AG (hereinafter called "Infomed") from Wil (SG), Switzerland.

Infomed is a not-for-profit publishing company that has been publishing information that promotes the proper use of drugs in the general medical practice and in healthcare services since 1979.

Med111 complements Infomed's existing range of publications.

Beta subscribers must be natural persons of full legal capacity (minimum age 18 years) or legal entities entered in the commercial register.

By expressly confirming the acceptance of the GTC when subscribing to med111 and by using the service, beta subscribers of med111 agree to these GTC and the data protection provisions which are also an integral part of the agreement.

The testing and introduction phase of med111 serves the purpose of testing the new functionality with regard to editorial content, technical accuracy and commercial integrity and, if necessary, to improve the service for future paid subscriptions. Participation as a beta subscriber in the testing and introduction phase is free of charge.

  2) Period of Validity

The testing and introduction phase is expected to end on September 30, 2018. Infomed reserves the right to extend this phase, which would also extend the validity of these GTC.

Infomed also reserves the right to terminate the testing and introduction phase earlier than stated here, which would shorten the validity of these GTC accordingly.

After the testing and introduction phase has been completed, the beta subscriber's username and password will no longer allow access to the med111 drug leaflet functionality.

Any form account sharing in order to access med111 is not permitted. In the event of infringements, Infomed reserves the right to block a user's access at any time without any further obligations on the part of Infomed and to delete the user's account.

Beta subscriptions are intended for a single natural person and are limited by the number of fact sheets that can be created or printed per day and per month. Any form of automated retrieval of information sheets and their distribution in other systems is prohibited.
