Registration, security and validation

Only users who own or have a license to use 3Shape products can enter the community. When you log into the Community, you use your 3Shape Communicate account user name and password. Your e-mail, user name and password from 3Shape Communicate are transferred into the Community.

3Shape develops and manufactures 3D dental scanners, which are classified as medical devices. In the Community, 3Shape will make promotional materials available and communicate about the scanners. In some countries, local legislation states that only Health Care Professionals (HCP’s) may enter websites communicating about certain medical devices. This means that in such countries 3Shape may only allow HCP’s to enter the Community and we will validate you as a HCP with your official local HCP ID number (or by other similar means).

 

Product and service information

In the Community, 3Shape will provide medical device related information, which is intended for general information and promotional purposes. Some of the medical devices may not (yet) be available in your country. 3Shape strives to present correct and precise information about e.g. products and services in the 3Shape Community, however, we cannot guarantee that all information is correct.

SHOULD YOU BE AWARE OF A MEDICAL CONDITION, WHICH MAY BE CONSIDERED REPORTABLE AS AN “INCIDENT”, CF. THE MEDICAL DEVICE REGULATION OR ON OTHER LEGAL BASIS, PROMPTLY REPORT SUCH INCIDENT TO THE RELEVANT STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING THE LOCAL HEALTH AUTHORITY. THIS COMMUNITY IS NOT INTENDED FOR THE OFFERING OF ANY DIAGNOSIS OR PATIENT-SPECIFIC TREATMENT.

You should always obtain complete information about the medical devices (including their intended uses, incident related issues etc.) by discussing the appropriate use of the medical devices, where appropriate, with regulatory authorities or similar for information appropriate to your country.

Please also note, that regulations in some countries may limit (or even prohibit) 3Shape’s ability to provide information and/or to respond directly to patient and/or user questions regarding the medical devices.
