This is the agreement that outlines how you may use our website
to manage the site and how this might affect you.
Health Horizon (“Health Horizon”, “website” or “the platform”) is an online listing of profiles of health innovations
(“innovations”), health innovation professionals (other “users”), organisations (“organisations”) and the relationships
between these three entities. Collectively, this information we refer to as “content” or “information”. The platform is
accessed through the URL www.thehealthhorizon.com. The platform is owned by the
company Health-Innovate Pty Limited ACN 168 037 303 (“we”, “us”, and “our” also trading under “Health Horizon”).
By accessing the website you (“you”) become a “user”, whether or not you create an account with us. There are two types
of users, those who use it simply to find and track innovations (“consumers”) and those who use it to manage their
health innovations, are linked to health innovations or use the platform for professional purposes (“professionals”).
Your use of the Health Horizon website and any dispute arising out of such use of the Health Horizon website is subject
to the laws of the Australian Capital Territory.
The document is long, to make it easier to read we have summarized the main points. If you have questions about this
We can change this agreement at any time. We don’t need to tell you but we will endeavour to. It is your responsibility
In using some services available through (or linked from) the Health Horizon website you may be required to agree to
We aim to give you accurate information, but can’t guarantee it
We will make reasonable efforts to ensure the content on the website is accurate, but we cannot guarantee that any
information is correct. No representation or warranty (express or implied) is made as to the currency, completeness,
accuracy, reliability, suitability and / or availability of the information on the Health Horizon website. In addition,
no representation or warranty (express or implied) is made that the information will meet your health or medical
Innovations added to Health Horizon are reviewed by us to meet a minimum level of quality. We do not thoroughly check
the accuracy of the information nor the effectiveness of the innovation. If we approve an innovation to be listed on our
platform, it does not mean we endorse it.
Innovations on Health Horizon are not endorsed by us.
Our website attempts to be a simplified and intuitive version of the real health innovation ecosystem. This means it
cannot be completely accurate.
The information of Health Horizon acts like a simplified directory of the health innovation ecosystem in the real world.
Innovations, users, organisations and the relationships between them may not map accurately to the situation in the real
In most cases the situation apparent on Health Horizon will greatly underestimate the complexity of the situation in the
real-world. One example of this can be found in the ownership of innovations. Innovations are “owned” on Health Horizon
by a single organisation but in reality they may have complicated shared ownership arrangements with other organisations
Thus the platform should be seen as a guide and notification system pointing to more reliable information in the form of
external links or contact details of the relevant person. Users should use the external links, other sources or directly
contact the responsible users on Health Horizon to build up accurate information.
The information on Health Horizon should not be the sole basis for any important decisions.
We are a directory. We are not involved in any deals or agreements that may be organised on Health Horizon. Also no
agreements made on Health Horizon are official or binding.
You are free to contact any consenting user on the platform to get more information. Users are consenting to contact if
their settings allow their details to be visible on the website.
We take no equity nor charge a fee, nor limit your ability to make deals in the real word. We are not involved in any
deal you might make after discovering another party on Health Horizon, and are not liable for anything that may happen
as a result of such a deal.
Any offers or proposals made public by users on the platform are non-binding, and may be revoked and cancelled at any
time by the user who makes them.
We have the power to add or remove things that we think are or are not health “innovations” respectively. What
classifies as an innovation can be vague, we will make judgments on a case by case basis, with reference to a set of
Whether a health product or service classifies as an innovation for the purposes of inclusion on Health Horizon will be
determined by Health Horizon along the following lines. The product or service should:
- Provide or have the potential to provide a significant improvement upon the status quo,
- Not be commonly available through retail stores or services,
- Be supported by an organisation who has the intention of commercialising or broadening the product or service’s
application beyond the basic commerce of increasing sales,
- Be supported by an organisation who is able to provide, on request of Health Horizon, documentation supporting the
effectiveness of the product or service from a scientific standpoint or otherwise demonstrable methodology,
- Be in, or have previously partaken in, a commercialization process.
Users can create organisations whose profiles are publicly visible. You may only do this if you are part of the
organisation and have the authority to represent it.
