SMOP – Implant Planning System

I. Commercial Model

Welcome to SMOP and congratulations for having chosen our platform. By signing up and registering to the SMOP platform you are participating in the leading implant planning community. You have the chance to load your DICOM, view the data, plan implants, share your planning online with colleagues and friends as well as export data to create templates for the actual patient’s treatment.

By registering on the platform you become a “registered user”. Each registered user signs up for a yearly membership fee, including a minimum consumption of points at the beginning of the term. The membership will be charged immediately after signing up for the “subscription term”.  Within the first 60 days after registering you can cancel you registration free of costs (“trial period”). Swissmeda will charge you back the membership fee (including all non consumed points).

As a registered user you are responsible for your own personal login information and should under no circumstances share this login information with others. This is to protect you and your interests in terms of data privacy laws regarding your patience data and also to protect SMOP and our operator Swissmeda for illegal users. You are allowed to login from your own personal computers. All terms and conditions of the subscription agreement for registered users shall apply.

After having paid the yearly membership fee SMOP allows the registered user to download and/or utilize the downloaded software during the subscription term. All functions of the core planning process (for clarification: All new major modules, e.g. CAD/CAM or functionality, which brings major additional value to registered users, are not automatically included) can be used as part of the membership fee without additional points charged excluding step “Export of Data”.

Step: Export of Data

The export of data in order to create and produce a template is not included in the membership and is priced per use. Each export of data with the goal of producing a template based on the planning will be charged with 150 Pts – 50 Pts (the first Export is 150 Pts, the second one is 149 Pts.,… the hundredth is 50 Pts. and all further exports are 50 Pts). The points for the export of the data are charged to the user account the data is exported from. A data set that has been exported can be exported again, without being charged again.         

The yearly membership fee of 800 Points includes a yearly minimum consumption of 400 Points. The minimum consumption is booked into the registered user account, ready for consumption. At the end of the 12 months subscription term the non consumed consumption will be booked out of the registered users account. Depending on the country of the registered user, there are reduced rates for the membership fee. Swissmeda automatically charges the valid rate for your country.

II.  Payment Terms

b. Service Level Program

  1. Solution Accessibility Warranty 
  1. Applicability. The Server Solution Accessibility Warranty applies to the applicable Server Solution.
  2. Scheduled Downtime. When needed, Swissmeda will schedule downtime for routine maintenance or systems upgrades ("Scheduled Downtime") for the server Solution. Swissmeda shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to schedule maintenance and system upgrades outside of peak traffic periods. Generally, such maintenance or system upgrades are scheduled to occur from Sunday, 8:00AM to Sunday 8:00PM  CET (Central European Time) ("Maintenance Window"). Swissmeda reserves the right to extend or change the times of the Maintenance Window. Swissmeda will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customers and registered users at least 72 hours prior to the occurrence of Scheduled Downtime.
  3. Exclusions. In calculating the Inaccessibility Period, the following will not apply: (i) mere micro-outages (meaning, an inaccessibility that lasts less than fifteen (15) minutes, provided that there are no more than three (3) micro-outages within a calendar month); (ii) Scheduled Downtime for which Registered user has been notified at least one business day prior to such Scheduled Downtime; (iii) inaccessibility that is not the fault of Swissmeda (such as failures caused by factors not under Swissmeda's direct control, for example where caused by equipment or software under the control of a third party), and (iv) inaccessibility due to Customer request or where Customer approved in advance. Registered user shall be solely responsible for maintaining adequate controls over Registered user's Data transmissions to the Solution, for monitoring such transmissions, and for bringing to Swissmeda's attention any failure to access the Solution within (5) days of inception of any such event. Customer and it’s registered users shall be solely responsible for setting applicable data processing and transmission parameters, for inspecting all data input and output for accuracy and completeness.

  1. Security Elements.

         The Solution contains the following security elements:
  1. Physical Security. The Solution is either under Swissmeda's control or is located at a secure, third party off-site facility. Access to the hardware, software, and other elements comprising the Solution is limited to authorized personnel only. Swissmeda uses servers with redundant features for maximum accessibility.
  2. Disaster Recovery. The Solution utilizes a disaster recovery plan to allow for Swissmeda to meet the Solution Accessibility Warranty stated in this Service Level Program.
  3. Data Security. Transactions made using the Solution are initially stored in a database to prevent loss. All Registered user Data resident on the systems is backed up daily. Backups include Registered user's registration, account information, DICOM data and other data. The Solution receives periodic preventive maintenance. This preventive maintenance is scheduled for times outside of peak traffic periods. As applicable, transaction queues wait while maintenance occurs, and they resume processing when maintenance concludes. Only the organizations involved in a planning case are permitted to see that case, except to the extent Swissmeda is asked to debug a technical issue and needs to access a case. As applicable [1], the Solution runs redundant copies of all of the critical software subsystems related to case routing. This redundancy enables fail-over in the event of an error so that disruption of the Solution is minimized.
  4. Solution Security. Swissmeda implements commercially available security software, hardware and techniques to minimize and prevent non-authorized use of the Solution. These include firewalls, intrusion detection software tools, and monitored use of the Solution. The Solution also performs authentication of interactive user sessions. For increased security, the Solution uses HTTPS, which is HTTP over SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication for TCP/IP connections. The Solution's Webservers use a server digital certificate to enable SSL connections.
  1. Miscellaneous

DEFINITIONS

“Solution” means the Implant Planning Module, the Template Design Module, the Shell for the Implant Planning Module, and the administrative module that holds all customer relationships, data, incl. commercial details.

“Registered User” means an entity you or your company provides access to the solution.


Swissmeda Customers or registered users may be referred to as "you" throughout this document. Individual users of the Solutions (whether employees of the customer organization) collectively and individually may also be referred to as "you" and "your" throughout this document.

When using the Solution, Swissmeda collects information that you, your employer, or a registered user, or other data sources send to the Solution (such as internet-protocol addresses, transaction-related data, and user account information). This data is addressed below in two categories,
Transaction Data (as defined below) and Personal Information (data that can identify an individual or that is associated with the identity of an individual).

TRANSACTION DATA HANDLING
Swissmeda understands the sensitive nature of the transaction data you or your organization may provide while using the Solution. Transaction Data may include information you provide to Swissmeda or your registered users during the registration, uploading of DICOM data, implant planning, or through any e-mail or other communication sent by you to the Solution as well as other information that you store within the Solution. It may also include data of transactions sent by your registered users to you or between registered users via the Solution or by you to your registered users via the Solution. Transaction data may include Personal Information addressed more specifically below.

Data Use by Swissmeda
Swissmeda will treat your Transaction Data as confidential information and will use it only to: facilitate operation of the Solution and its related services; enhance your use of the Solution and its related web pages; perform internal tracking and Solution improvement; analyze the extent to which you use the Solution (e.g., the volume and history); enable us to contact you; and process your transactions through the Solution.

Swissmeda may use the information submitted by you or your registered users in aggregation to determine general medical trends for research purposes or improvement of the Swissmeda Service only. Swissmeda may also use such information in the publication of "high level" medical research project, provided that such publication (i) does not directly or indirectly identify individual cases, you as a customer or any of your registered users by name or provide a third party with sufficient information to allow a third party to identify any individual or legal entity, (ii) is aggregated with data from at least four (4) comparable cases, (iii) does not specifically identify customer’s or registered users products or services, or the prices of those products or services.

Business Contact Information
When a representative of a Customer or registered user creates a user or admin account on the Solution, Swissmeda asks for the name and contact information. The User Account information will be used by Swissmeda to contact the user with notices, service offerings and Solution administration purposes.
You should submit only publicly available, business contact information. Individual contact information submitted to the Solution should not include private home contact information you do not want to be contacted under.

Transaction Data and Third Parties
In using the Solution, you understand that Swissmeda will send your Transaction Data to your registered users (or others that you or your registered users authorize) and Swissmeda service providers in order to facilitate your transactions (cases).

Swissmeda's Commitment to Data Security
Swissmeda takes steps to appropriately safeguard credit card and remittance information using recommended industry encryption methods. We've designed our services so that these categories of information can only be viewed from within the Solution.

PERSONAL INFORMATION HANDLING AND PRICACY

Personal Information
"Personal Information" is a person's name and information associated with his or her personal identity as opposed to information associated with a business. Personal Information, such as name, business address, business email, and individually used corporate credit card number, may be required for use of some features of the Solution. If you do not want to provide Personal Information to Swissmeda or wish to have Swissmeda remove your Personal Information from the Solution, please contact your Swissmeda Account Administrator to find out if there is an optional way for you to perform the applicable function without submitting Personal Information.

Use of Personal Information by Swissmeda
Swissmeda will treat your Personal Information as confidential information and will use it only to: facilitate operation of the Solution and its related services; enhance your use of the Solution and its related web pages; perform internal tracking and Solution improvement; enable us to contact you; process your transactions through the Solution (including use of DICOM data, templates and document creation); and analyze the volume and history of your Solution usage. Some of our Solution areas utilize cookie technology for these same purposes. You may configure your browser to reject cookies, but this may affect your ability to utilize our Solution to the same extent as a user who accepts cookies. We do not link the information we store in cookies to Personal Information you submit while using the Solution.

Consent
By submitting Personal Information to the Solution, you are consenting to Swissmeda's collection, processing, storage, and use of that information in accordance with this Data Policy. Before providing, or allowing an employee to provide, Personal Information to the Solution, you need to obtain that individual's consent for the collection, transfer, processing, and use of that information in accordance with this Data Policy.

Transfer
The Solution is primarily located in and operated from Switzerland and Germany. The Controller of personal data processing through the Solution is Swissmeda, headquartered at Technoparkstrasse 1, 8005 Zurich, Switzerland. By submitting data to the Solution, you consent to having such data transferred to other countries than your home country and other Solution operation locations selected by Swissmeda, and Swissmeda's authorized service providers. Swissmeda Affiliates controlled by Swissmeda are located inside and outside the European Economic Area. Any transfer of Personal Information from the European Economic Area to Swissmeda Affiliates located in countries outside the European Economic Area, which may not provide for an adequate level of data protection within the meaning of the European Data Protection Directive, will be subject to a confirmation by Swissmeda that adequate safeguards are in place and a so-called data transfer agreement based on standard contractual clauses, as approved by the European Commission.

Correcting Account Information (Exercising Your Right to Access Personal Information)
You have a right to access and modify your Personal Information and to delete your Personal Information, subject to constraints identified below. To exercise these rights, Swissmeda has procedures to allow you to update Personal Information in a timely manner. In most Solutions, the administrative contact for your company can directly change most contact information by logging on to the Solution and managing your account profile directly. For certain Solutions, changes may be requested by calling Swissmeda customer support.

Swissmeda may refuse to give access to the Solution for legitimate reasons including delinquent payments on the account, a legal dispute, or security concerns. If you are unable to correct, update, or delete your personal information due to the fact that you are no longer an employee of the business that is the account holder, or your account has been terminated, you may contact Swissmeda at the address provided below. In each case, Swissmeda will take reasonable measures to accommodate your request or respond in writing with the legal basis for denying the request within thirty (30) days.

Disclosure by Swissmeda to Third Parties
Swissmeda does not provide your Personal Information to third parties, except as described elsewhere in this policy and in our contracts with our Customers, unless (1) you request or authorize it; (2) such disclosure is necessary to process transactions or provide services which you have requested (e.g., processing with credit card companies or settlement services with banks); (3) Swissmeda is compelled to do so by a governmental authority, regulatory body, or under subpoena or similar governmental request or to establish or defend a legal claim; or (4) the third party is acting as our agent or sub-contractor in performing services (e.g., Swissmeda's use of a third party telecommunications provider).

Security
Swissmeda uses industry standard security measures to protect Personal Information from unauthorized disclosure. Please see our Security Disclosure for information about the measures Swissmeda takes to address the security of the Solution and the protection of your Personal Information.

Data Retention 
Swissmeda will retain Personal Information in active databases for varying lengths of time depending upon the specific Solution, type of data, and applicable law. The policy regarding data retention for each Solution is set forth in the documentation or terms for each Solution. Consistent with Swissmeda's backup and storage procedures and due to the close integration of data with the Solution, Personal Information might be stored by Swissmeda in backup logs and files for the duration necessary for legal requirements or the purposes described in this policy. However, Swissmeda makes no commitment to indefinitely store such data. During your subscription to the Solution, you will be able to access your Personal Information for a certain period based on the particular Solution that you purchased and the policies for the Solution and we suggest that inquiries be directed through the administrative contact for your company and directed to the Swissmeda Privacy Coordinator at the address designated below.

Data Storage and Retention

Swissmeda shall only be obligated and will only retain data (personal data as well as loaded data such as DICOM, plannings, ect. ) during the subscription term of a registered user. After the subscription term ended or has been terminated, Swissmda has the right to delete all data related to the registered user, who has chosen not to extend his subscription term. It is the registered user’s obligations to download any relevant data before the end of the subscription term.

Changes to this Policy
From time to time Swissmeda will need to make changes to this policy. Some of the changes will be in response to changes in applicable laws and regulations. In addition, as Swissmeda adds new features and new services to a Solution, Swissmeda will continue to handle Personal Information consistently with this policy, but some changes or clarifications may be required.

If Swissmeda seeks to make a material change to Swissmeda's policy to allow use of Personal Information for a new, legitimate business purpose, Swissmeda will document the change to this Data Policy, note the date of the last update at the bottom of the policy, and send a notice to the user contacts on file. You are encouraged to check this policy occasionally to stay informed of any changes in our policies and procedures regarding Personal Information. For substantial and material changes to the Data Policy, Swissmeda will use reasonable efforts to provide notification to all affected users and suggest that such users review the updated Data Policy.
