Welcome to SkinVision's website and smartphone application (Online Services), an online information and communication service provided by SkinVision B.V. ("SkinVision" or "We" or "Us"), subject to your agreement with all of these terms and conditions (“Terms”).
SkinVision may modify these Terms at any time, and such modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting the modified Terms on SkinVision Online Services. We will ask you to accept or decline the modified Terms prior to your access to the Services.

You can opt-out by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not accept these updated Terms or do not wish to be bound by changes following posted notices you should discontinue use of the Websites and the Service.
From time to time SkinVision may offer website visitors the opportunity to participate in additional features or services through SkinVision Online Services. You may be required to enter into additional agreements or authorizations before you can access such features or services.
If you do not agree with all the Terms, or if you are under the age of fourteen (14), do not use the Service. Please review all of the Terms carefully before using the Service.

g. The lesion is surrounded or covered by a significant amount of hair;
h. The lesion is on mucosal surfaces (e.g., lips, genitals)
i. The lesion is in a skinfold.
