Please read these Terms carefully before you register an account on the app or use our website.
Through our website, businesses may purchase COVID-19 Rapid Saliva Protein Tests (RSPT) which are made available on our website, on a subscription basis. Subscriptions may also include the use of certain systems and services provided by Saturn, further details of which are on our website. If you are a business which subscribes to use our systems or services and/or purchase any tests through our website, the provision of such systems or services and/or the purchase and supply of those tests will be governed by our Subscription Terms and Conditions.
The app is designed to enable individuals to upload an image of the results of a COVID-19 test that is compatible with the app (a Test) and, in the event of a negative Test result, obtain a Saturn Pass and unique QR code (the Saturn Pass).
References to you are to you, an individual user of the app or website. By using the app and our website you confirm that you accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use the app or website.
1.1 The app and website are operated by Saturn Passport Limited. References in these Terms to Saturn, we, us and our are to Saturn Passport Limited, a limited company registered in England and Wales under company number 12647399, with registered office 14th Floor, 82 King Street, Manchester, United Kingdom, M2 4WQ.
2.1 The app only works with COVID-19 tests which are compatible with the app, a list of which is set out on the app (a Test).
2.2 The Saturn Pass will enable you to show your Saturn Pass to third parties who accept the Saturn Pass as evidence of a negative Test result. This will enable you to show your Saturn Pass to third parties who accept the Saturn Pass as evidence of a negative Test result, including:
4.1 When you take a Test using the app, the Test will need to be carried out in the presence of a Health Care Professional (HCP) or Trained Supervisor, as explained in the instructions provided with the app. You will be required to confirm via the app whether you are in the presence of a HCP or Trained Supervisor, and scan their QR code to confirm this within the app. A Test will not be valid, and you will not therefore be able to proceed with uploading a Test result to the app, without confirmation that the Test has been carried out in the presence of a HCP or Trained Supervisor.
4.2 The Test is manufactured by an independent third party (Test Manufacturer). When taking the Test you must follow all instructions and guidance provided by the Test Manufacturer. If you have any questions regarding the Test or instructions provided with the Test, you should direct those questions to the relevant Test Manufacturer or the HCP or Trained Supervisor supervising the Test.
5.1 At the point of uploading an image of your Test result to the app, you will be asked to confirm in the Test User Declaration that you are the person who has taken the Test, you have followed all instructions provided with the Test, and you have acted honestly in providing all relevant information to the app.
5.2 When taking an image of the Test result to be uploaded to the app, you should ensure that the photograph is taken in clear and good light where the Test result can be clearly seen.
5.3 When an image of the Test result is uploaded to the app, the app reads the Test result using computer vision. You will also need to follow the instructions provided with the Test and enter the Test results manually into the app. If the Test result recorded by the computer vision within the app is the same as the result you have manually entered in the app, a conclusive result will be recorded. Where this is a negative Test result, the app will generate a Saturn Pass.
5.4 If the app detects a different Test result to the result you have manually entered in the app, the Test result will be recorded as inconclusive by the app, and you should take another Test. We will have no liability for any loss or damage suffered or incurred by you as a result of the app recording an inconclusive Test result.
5.5 The app does not make any diagnosis or triage of COVID-19.
5.8 Your Saturn Pass will expire on the app after 5 days. However, please note that the Employer or Other Third Party User may require the Test to have been carried out within a shorter period, and the Saturn Pass will only be confirmed to the Employer or Other Third Party User as being valid when they scan the QR code or view the Saturn Pass, if it meets the time period they have specified. For example, an Employer may require you to have taken a negative Test within 48 hours of admittance to their premises and the Saturn Pass will only show as valid if the Test was taken and uploaded to the app within that period.
6.1 The app is available to download on mobiles, tablets and other handheld devices via the App Store and Google Play store. Your device must be IOS or android compatible and you must be at least 18 years of age.
6.2 Where you are using the app as part of workplace testing, you will need to receive an invite from your Employer to register for an account on the app. You will need to use your mobile telephone number of the device on which the app is downloaded in order to access the app.
