Better Life Science test kits are available to ship to all U.S. States except New York.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) apply to your use of testing kit services available for purchase through www.stdhero.com (the “Site”) operated by Better Life Science, LLC. (“Better Life Science,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Our testing kit services, and the Site are collectively referred to as our “Services.” Your use of our Services is subject to these Terms.
OUR SERVICES ENABLE YOUR COORDINATION AND COMMUNICATION WITH HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS. HOWEVER, WE DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE, THE SERVICES DO NOT PROVIDE A CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS FROM US AND DO NOT REPLACE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ANY PHYSICIAN. OUR SERVICES MIGHT NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR EVERYONE AND ALL MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR CONCERNS. IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR DOCTOR OR DIAL 911.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY; THEY FORM A BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND US ACCEPTED BY YOU WHEN YOU USE ANY OF OUR SERVICES. OUR SERVICES ARE INTENDED FOR INDIVIDUAL RESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES WHO ARE 18 OR OLDER. THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE, A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, A DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY.
We offer testing kit services for individuals who have established an “Account” through the Site to purchase at-home sample collection laboratory testing kits, provide us with biological samples collected using the kit and receive the results of the laboratory tests performed on such samples. Each user of this testing Service is encouraged to consult with their healthcare provider regarding the results received; we do not provide you with direct access to a physician through the Services, provided that (as required by law) we have partnered with a company that has licensed physicians (“Health Consultants”) to review whether the test you request is appropriate for you as a condition to our having the test performed for you as you requested and to review and interpret the results before they are delivered to you and, as they deem appropriate, to reach out to you to discuss test results and/or treatment options.
Individuals who comply with these Terms may purchase test kits from us on a per kit basis or, as otherwise available through our Site. Your desired test kit will be mailed to you. After registering the test kit, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire, which may include medical information, required waivers, consents or authorizations resulting in applicable Health Consultant review and authorization. Failure to provide the required information or to execute the required documents may result in your sample(s) not being tested.
You collect the required biological sample(s) using the kit and using the provided pre-addressed mailer, you send the completed biological sample(s) to Our certified lab (“Lab”), which performs the testing. Biological samples shall consist solely of human fluids that are intended to be analyzed for your individual use, and not for any other purpose, including but not limited to research, publications, commercial uses, or any other purpose other than to help inform your health and/or wellness. The Lab sends the results of the tests to the Health Consultant to read and interpret. We then provide the test results to you via your Account and the Health Consultant may also reach out to you to discuss test results and/or treatment options.
Users may not request Services for anyone but themselves or a child for whom they are the parent or legal guardian.
You acknowledge that Better Life Science is not a health advisor, and we do not provide medical, health or other professional advice. You acknowledge that Health Consultants are not employees of Better Life Science and are not providing services on behalf of Better Life Science, but instead are independent professionals solely responsible for the services each provides to you. The information available on the Site and provided through the Services are not a substitute for professional medical advice. You should always seek the advice of your physician or another licensed health care provider with any questions you may have regarding your health and the test findings you receive from Better Life Science.
The testing services are not payable or reimbursable through a health plan, private insurance, or another payor like Medicare or Medicaid or any other governmental healthcare program. The person purchasing the testing services is the party responsible to pay for the services. Our testing services may not be available in all locations. The cost of testing is available on the Site and in your cart at checkout. Fees will be paid at the time of purchase. We may revise our fees from time to time at our discretion without prior notice. We will refund the applicable fees if, after the applicable review, a Health Consultant does not authorize and order the test(s) you requested. If you decide to cancel your order for a test kit, we will refund the applicable fees as long as the requested test kit has not shipped (typically kits ship within 1-2 business days). If you request cancellation after the order ships, a $25 USD per test kit fee will be subtracted from the refund amount. If you have already received your kit(s) but have not opened it yet, you may request a refund (less the $25 USD per kit fee) for up to 30 days from when you placed your order, after sending it back to the Better Life Science Fulfillment Center, 4400 North Point Pkwy Ste 160, Alpharetta, GA 30005. Better Life Science will not refund any orders after 30 days from the order date or kits that haven been opened. You may email us at [email protected] for assistance with refunds. If Better Life Science determines that you have used the Site or the Services other than permitted under these Terms, we reserve the right to suspend your Account and refuse refund requests. We will collect and remit applicable sales taxes as required by law. Kits are typically delivered within 10 business days after they ship, but we have no control over delays in shipping by our shipping partners. You will receive an email notification when your kits ship. We reserve the right to correct any errors in pricing indicated on the Site.

You agree to (i) provide truthful and accurate registration information as requested by us; (ii) promptly inform us of any changes to your registration information, including, but not limited to, your address and email address; (iii) take all reasonable precautions to safeguard access to your password and to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Services through your Account; (iv) promptly report to us any unauthorized use of your login information or the Services of which you become aware; and, (v) ensure that you log out from your Account at the end of each session.

These Terms and all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the purchase, registration, or use of any Better Life Science product or Services shall be governed by Georgia law regardless of where you access the Site or the Services, and notwithstanding of any conflicts of law principles.
In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising from or relating to these Terms or the purchase, registration, or use of any Better Life Science product or Services, we and you (collectively, the “Parties”) shall use their best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, the Parties shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both Parties. If the Parties do not reach such solution within a period of thirty (30) days, then all disputes shall be resolved by binding arbitration in Atlanta, Georgia, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), subject to the limitations of this section. This agreement to arbitrate will be specifically enforceable in any court having jurisdiction. Notice of a demand for arbitration shall be filed in writing with the other party hereto and with the AAA. The demand for arbitration shall be made within a reasonable time after the dispute has arisen, and in no event shall any such demand be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The Parties agree that one (1) arbitrator shall arbitrate the dispute. The arbitrator shall be selected by the joint agreement of the Parties, but if they do not so agree within twenty (20) days after the date of the notice of a demand for arbitration referred to above, the selection shall be made pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA from the panels of business arbitrators maintained by the AAA. The Parties agree that the arbitrator shall have sole authority to decide whether claims brought by either party (excluding claims brought under the paragraph immediately below) are subject to this dispute resolution agreement. The decision of the arbitrator shall be made in writing, shall be final, judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction thereof, and the decision shall not be subject to vacation, modification or appeal, except to the extent permitted by the Federal Arbitration Act, the terms of which sections the Parties agree shall apply. The fees charged by the AAA and arbitrator shall be shared equally by the parties.
Notwithstanding the paragraph above, either party may bring a claim related to intellectual property rights, or seek temporary or preliminary specific performance or temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, in any court of competent jurisdiction, without the posting of bond or other security.
Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any dispute heard as a collective or class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity, and each party hereby waives any right to assert consolidated claims with respect to any disputes subject to arbitration under these Terms. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Any action, claim or dispute you have against us must be filed within one year, unless prohibited by applicable law. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under this agreement must be filed within one year in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the claim or notice of dispute first could be filed. If a claim or dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred.
