Terms and Conditions (GTC)
These General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply to the United Kingdom and Ireland and are therefore exclusively written in English.
These are the General Terms and Conditions of the Scientific DX GmbH (called “igevia”):
Address: 1030 Vienna, Kolonitzgasse 2A / DG
Managing Directors: Dominik Flener, Dr. Thomas Winkler
Phone number: +44 1905 940023
E-Mail: [email protected]
We invite you to read the terms and conditions carefully, as they provide important information and regulations for your order at www.igevia.com.
1. Subject of the contract
1.1. A contractual relationship with igevia is concluded exclusively on the basis of the General Terms and Conditions in the currently valid version.
1.2. The services of www.igevia.com are currently only directed at customers with domicile or habitual place of residence in the United Kingdom or Ireland.
1.3. igevia uses a portal with the domain www.igevia.com, which allows customers to order the igevia box. With the equipment provided with the igevia-Box, customers can take a small amount of blood (0.5ml) at home. For an analysis the customer needs to send the blood sample to our partner labora-tory with the envelope enclosed in the igevia box. The results of the analysis are made available to our customers in the igevia allergen report on the portal www.igevia.com. For customers who have purchased the igevia-Box through other distribution channels (for example doctors or pharmacies), the results are also made available via the portal www.igevia.com.
1.4. Our goal is to make the access to allergen diagnostics as easy as possible. igevia gives access to the blood analysis results from the laboratory on the portal. igevia explicitly offers no interpretation of the laboratory results, because we are convinced that this consultation should be provided individually by specialists. Thus, the provided igevia-Allergen-Report is not a substitute for a doctor’s visit, which must take place before changing any living and eating habits.
1.5. Please always follow the instructions that are provided in the igevia-Box. For the blood sample please only use the equipment which is provided with the igevia-Box.
1.6. With each igevia-Box comes an individual ID (identification number). With this ID you can activate your igevia-Box and link it to your Email address.
1.7. You will send your blood sample directly to our partner laboratory, using your return envelope included in the box, where your sample will be analyzed and evaluated. After the evaluation, the lab submits the results to us connected to your ID and we provide you with the results on the portal at www.igevia.com.
1.8. For analyzing and evaluating your blood sample, it is necessary for our partner laboratory to work with us. Data is collected, processed and exchanged on both sides. In our partner laboratory your data is linked exclusively only to your ID, so no personal data is visible and the data cannot be associated with any particular individual. igevia has obligated the partner laboratory to always comply the applicable data protection regulations during the collection and processing of all data.
2. User profile
2.1. You can place an order stating the billing and delivery address as well as your preferred payment method on www.igevia.com.
2.2. When you receive your personal igevia-Box, you will be asked to activate it and link it to your email address. After completing the activation you can manage and update your personal data yourself. The results of the laboratory analysis are also available in your user profile.
2.5. Please note that you are obliged to provide complete and truthful information about your data when ordering and activating the product.
2.6. You will have access to your user profile and your igevia-Allergen-Report with the email address you supply when activating the Box. You must ensure that emails that you receive from igevia are kept confidential and that the data is not made accessible to third parties without authorization. igevia is not responsible and liable for an unauthorized use of your data and for any resulting damages, as far as this is due to deficiencies in the safekeeping and confidentiality of access data of the customer.
