Terms and Services
December 3, 2021
We (the team at Table Rounds) have created Table Rounds to share our passion to make learning medicine a fun and collaborative experience. Through our off-line and online games, we strive to create a space that builds social connections among learners as much as it allows them to discover medical knowledge.
Table Rounds is owned and operated by Low Yield Productions, LLC (the “Company”). Our services (the “Services”) include and are not limited to digital and physical products, such as Table Rounds games for medical education.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) describe our commitments to you, and your rights and responsibilities when using our services. Please read them carefully and reach out to us if you have any questions. These Terms include a mandatory arbitration provision. If you don’t agree to these Terms, don’t use our Services.
By accessing or using any part of our Services, you agree to be bound by all of the Terms and all other operating rules, policies, and procedures that we may publish via the Services from time to time (collectively, the “Agreement”). You also agree that we may automatically change, update, or add on to our Services, and this Agreement will apply to any changes.
“You” means any individual or entity using our Services. If you use our Services on behalf of another person or entity, you represent and warrant that you’re authorized to accept the Agreement on that person’s or entity’s behalf, that by using using our Services you’re accepting the Agreement on behalf of that person or entity, and that if you, or that person or entity, violates the Agreement, you and that person or entity agree to be responsible to us.
We may limit your access to our Services until we’re able to verify your account information, like your email address. When you create a Table Rounds account, we consider that to be an inquiry about our products and services, which means that we may also contact you to share more details about what we have to offer (i.e., marketing). If you aren’t interested, you can opt out of the marketing communications, whether it’s an email, phone call, or text message.
You’re solely responsible and liable for all activity under your account. You’re also fully responsible for maintaining the security of your account (which includes keeping your password secure). We’re not liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of your acts or omissions.
Don’t share or misuse your access credentials. And notify us immediately of any unauthorized uses of your account, store, or website, or of any other breach of security. If we believe your account has been compromised, we may suspend or disable it.
Your account may accrue Points as you generate Content (e.g. creating submissions). These points will be awarded based on rules determined at discretion of Table Rounds. These Points do not have any monetary value and are solely created to facilitate gameplay. We reserve the right to award Points to our users as we see fit.
Minimum Age Requirements
Our Services are not directed to children. You’re not allowed to access or use our Services if you’re under the age of 13 (or 16 in Europe). If you register as a user or otherwise use our Services, you represent that you’re at least 13 (or 16 in Europe). You may use our Services only if you can legally form a binding contract with us. In other words, if you’re under 18 years of age (or the legal age of majority where you live), you can only use our Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to the Agreement.
To use our Services, you certify that you are planning to use Table Rounds for educational and entertainment purposes only. If you are a healthcare provider or a health professions student, you will not use information obtained on our Services to make decisions that impact patient care directly or indirectly.

We will do our best to ship your order within 3 business days after it is placed. Additionally, US standard domestic shipping takes 5 to 8 business days. There may be circumstances, such as holidays that might delay the shipment of your order.

You agree that you will pay for all products and purchases through the Services, and that Low Yield Productions, LLC may charge your payment method for any products purchased and for any additional amounts including but not limited to any taxes, late fees, etc. as applicable that may be accrued by or in connection with your account. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing Low Yield Productions, LLC with a valid payment method for payment of all fees.
Your total price will include the price of the product plus any applicable tax: such tax is based on the bill to address and the tax rate in effect at the time you purchase the product. All sales of products are final. Prices for products offered via the Services may change at any time, and the Services do not provide price protection or refund in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
