Pulse App Terms and Conditions

Effective Date : 3 September 2020 (OPv2.0)

Pulse Ecosystems Pte Ltd, a Singapore company ("PulseCo") provides the Pulse App on the terms and conditions set out below. By registering for the Pulse App you enter into an agreement with us as set out in these terms and conditions ("Agreement").

 

A. INTRODUCTION

 

The Pulse App is a platform operated by us through which you can access certain services, functionalities, features and information ("Pulse Services").

If you purchase any insurance products or register to utilise any insurance services provided by the Prudential insurance entity (“Pru Local Entity”) operating in your territory (see Appendix 2) on Pulse, the Pru Local Entity will provide such products and services to you subject to, among others, its own terms and conditions, personal information collection statement, policy provisions and privacy notice.

There are certain Pulse Services that are provided to you by our third party partners ("Pulse Partners"). Pulse Partners contract with you directly under their own terms and conditions to provide services in their own name.  

Pulse Services may include services which are regulated under applicable laws. Where relevant, such services will be provided under a licence obtained either by PulseCo or a Pulse Partner.

Access to the Pulse App outside your registered jurisdiction ("Home Territory") may be restricted or be limited to Pulse Services which were tailored to your Home Territory. We may add, change, remove, update or otherwise modify the Pulse Services from time to time.   We also reserve the right to remove or restrict access to any Pulse Services at any time in our sole discretion.

Please practice good security in using the Pulse App. For example, the device on which you install and access the Pulse App should be password protected and set to lock after a short period of inactivity.

 

B. REGISTRATION AND Pulse ID

 

In registering for the Pulse App you will have a unique account (a “Pulse ID”). Your Pulse  ID is valuable, and you are responsible for maintaining its confidentiality and security. We are not responsible for any losses arising from the unauthorized use of your Pulse  ID. Please contact us if you suspect your Pulse  ID has been compromised.

Unless you have parent or legal guardian consent, you must be age 18 or above to create a Pulse  ID and use the Pulse App. Pulse  IDs for persons under 18 can be created by a parent or legal guardian.  The parent or legal guardian is responsible for ensuring the person complies with this Agreement.

 

C. INTENT OF PULSE SERVICES

 

Health, Fitness and Wellness

Information, functionality, features and services provided as part of the Pulse Services are provided as an information service and for general guidance only and may not address all matters relevant to your particular circumstances.  In providing the Pulse Services, we do not carry on business as, manage or hold out to be, a clinic or a professional medical practitioner and therefore we do not owe a corresponding duty of care to you.  Except for telemedicine services where you are consulting a qualified medical practitioner or other health related practitioner, in no way are the Pulse Services intended to be a personal or medical diagnosis, advice or treatment, nor a health-care service or serve as a medical device.

If your symptoms persist, change or worsen, or you are concerned, or you think you have a medical emergency, please speak to a doctor, medical health care professional or the emergency services immediately.

Any decisions you make in relation to your health should always be made in consultation with a doctor or medical health care professional. We disclaim all warranties with respect to the output of such information services; reliance on any information provided by Pulse Services is solely at your own risk.

Where the services is provided by a Pulse Partner or a medical or other professional practitioner directly to you, the service is subject to the Partner’s terms and conditions and privacy notice.

A word about AI generally

Pulse Services are increasingly AI-enabled and the AI is constantly learning and improving. The output from such services are provided by computer systems and not a person, and is not tailored to all of your personal circumstances. If you feel that the AI is not providing an appropriate or correct response, we encourage you to provide feedback to us to help us improve the AI.

Reliance on Information

The Pulse Services may include information sourced from third parties for your convenience that we have not verified for accuracy or completeness. You should seek advice from an appropriately qualified individual before acting on any information or services available through the Pulse Services.

 

D. SUBSCRIPTION/PULSE ELITE

 

We offer a subscription service called "Pulse Elite" that offers you access to premium features, functionalities and content.  Any insurance or other financial services product which is part of a Pulse Elite subscription is provided by either a Pru Local Entity or another licensed insurance or financial services provider.  

Pulse Elite operates by automatic renewal on a monthly basis. Where you purchase a Pulse Elite subscription, you acknowledge and agree that this is a recurring payment and your selected payment method will be charged on a monthly basis. You may cancel or upgrade your subscription at any time on the “Pulse Elite Subscription” page or Setting page; such changes will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period. You will not be entitled to a refund of any partial subscription periods.

We reserve the right to replace any of the components of Pulse Elite with other components that are of a similar nature, feature or value, with reasonable prior notice to you.

We reserve the right to change the price of Pulse Elite with reasonable prior notice to you. Price changes will take effect at the next monthly renewal date following the date of the price change. By continuing to use Pulse Elite after the price change takes place, you accept the new price. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the price change by cancelling your subscription for Pulse Elite before the price change takes effect on the “Pulse Elite Subscription” page or “Settings” page.

We may offer free sample or trial Pulse Elite subscriptions from time to time.  You  will be automatically charged the monthly fee for the relevant Pulse Elite subscription after the trial period ends.  You may cancel the free sample or trial subscription at any time.

PulseCo is not a party to, and will not be bound by, Pulse Partner Terms. Pulse Partners may charge you for certain Pulse Services.
