Acceptance of Terms
Additionally, your ability to use some of the Services may involve other terms and conditions regarding third-party products and services. These terms and conditions may apply to you, but in no event shall such terms apply to us.
The Practices and the Providers
We contract with and provide administrative services to the Practices, which are independently owned by a licensed physician and not by us. We do not in any way supervise or control the Providers providing care to you. While we facilitate care coordination, we do not engage in the practice of medicine or provide medical advice or care. The content of the Sites and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by us. You should always seek the advice of your qualified healthcare professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions.
The Practices’ Providers deliver clinical services to you. Providers are independently contracted or employed by the Practices and in the future providers may use the Site as a way to coordinate access for you. We are not responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care the Providers render to you. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the Provider you ultimately select. Your interactions with the Providers are not intended to replace your relationship with other health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither us, nor any of our subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Sites or the Services, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider, or any information obtained on the Sites.
You acknowledge and agree to the following regarding the Practices and Providers:
• Although your ability to use some of the Services may involve other terms and conditions regarding third-party products and services, in no event shall these third-party terms and conditions apply to the Practices or Providers.
• The Practices operate subject to state and federal regulations, and the Services may not be available in your state.
• The indemnification provisions described under “Indemnification” also apply such that you agree to indemnify the Practices and Providers.
• The section entitled“Ownership and Copyright” applies to any Materials that are the property of the Practices.
Not for Emergencies
The Sites and the Services are not intended for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Sites. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately. You should seek emergency help or follow-up care when recommended by a provider or when otherwise needed. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.
Not an Insurance Product
We are not an insurer. The Services are not an insurance product, and the amounts you pay to us are not insurance premiums. If you desire any type of health or other insurance, you must purchase such insurance separately.
You understand that if you receive in-person care from Providers as a result of using the Sites, at the time of such care, the risks and benefits of treatment will be explained to you and you will have the opportunity to ask your healthcare provider questions about such risks and benefits of treatment and anything you do not understand about the treatment. If you do not understand why a Provider is recommending certain treatment or actions, you should ask your Provider to provide an explanation.
We do not endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication, he/she will limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in his/her own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written. Providers shall use their own discretion and professional judgment to prescribe DEA controlled or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of medical care and any associated prescriptions. You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided prescription information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription. We, and the Practices, fully honor patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct the Practices to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that content appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that content posted on the Sites infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a “Notification of ClaimedInfringement” requesting that the content be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:
• A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
• Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Sites are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
• Identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Sites;
• Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);
• A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the content in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
• A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Sites should be sent to the contact information listed below. Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

Supplemental Terms Applicable to Providers
To be a healthcare provider using the Sites (for purposes of this Section “Supplemental Terms Applicable to Providers,” referred to as “you” or a“Provider”) you must be a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or healthcare professional contracted or employed by the Practices, and must agree to comply with all laws, medical board rules and other rules and regulations applicable to you as a Provider or otherwise. Your relationship with the users of the Sites (including, but not limited to, your patients at your applicable Practice) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with us. We do not practice medicine and offer no medical services. As set forth more fully below, you are solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices and other interactions with patients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you and thePractices are solely responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, except that we may conduct billing and collections from patients and other consumers and immediately remit all such billings and collections to the Practices, when providing administrative services on thePractices’ behalf, and we shall have no liability whatsoever to you with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to you.
We do not provide any medical advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or medical issues associated with you, goods or services offered by you, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations. You should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and should not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining your compliance obligations under law. You, and we, agree that we are not providing, to customers or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice.
You will use the Sites and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical practice. While software products such as the Sites and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that you can offer patients, many factors, including but not limited to the provider/patient relationship can affect a patient outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. You shall be solely responsible for your use of the Sites and Services, and the provision of medical services to your patients. In this regard, you release us and our affiliates and waive any and all potential claims against us and our affiliates as a result of your use of the Sites and Services, and the provision of services to your patients.
As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold us and our affiliates harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any your patients, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a patient, which is brought against us or our affiliate, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of your use or operation of the Sites and Services. To the extent applicable, you will obtain our prior written consent to any settle mentor judgment in which you agree to any finding of our fault or defect in the Sites or Services. We will promptly notify you in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide you with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to you exclusive control over your defense and settlement.
If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images or other materials to us or our Sites (“Provider Content”), solely in an effort to improve the functioning of the Sites for providers, you agree not to provide any Provider Content that (a) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (b)violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets, or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (c)contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component. You are solely responsible for obtaining all necessary agreements and consents from, and providing all required notices to, patients and other consumers in conjunction with medical examination activities. You agree not to contact other users through unsolicited e-mail, telephone calls, mailings or any other method of communication. You represent and warrant to us that you have the legal right and authorization to upload all Provider Content at the Sites. We shall have a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable right and license to use the Provider Content however we desire, including without limitation, to copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such Provider Content and/or incorporate such Provider Content into any form, medium or technology throughout the world. We are and shall be under no obligation: (i) to maintain any Provider Content in confidence; (ii) to pay to you any compensation for any Provider Content; or(iii) to respond to any Provider Content.
We reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Provider Content submitted to the Sites. You grant us the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Provider Content. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Provider Content.

No Third Party Rights
Dispute Resolution; Arbitration
You may only bring claims in your individual capacity on your own behalf, and not in any representative capacity or on behalf of any class or purported class, and no arbitration you commence hereunder may be joined with or include any claims by any other persons. Each party shall bear its own arbitration filing fees.
The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned award and shall have the power to grant any interim or provisional measures that the arbitrator deems appropriate, including, but not limited to, injunctive relief and specific performance, and any interim or provisional measures ordered by the arbitrator may be specifically enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction as a final award. Nothing herein, however, shall authorize the arbitrator to act as amiable compositeurs or to proceed ex aequo et bono. Each party hereto retains the right to seek interim measures from a judicial authority, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with the agreement to arbitrate or a waiver of the right to arbitrate. The arbitrator shall award the prevailing party, if any as determined by the arbitrator, its reasonable costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. No information concerning an arbitration, beyond the names of the parties, their counsel or the relief requested, may be unilaterally disclosed to a third party by any party unless required by law. Any documentary or other evidence given by any party or witness in any arbitration shall be treated as confidential by any party whose access to such evidence arises exclusively because of its participation in the arbitration and shall not be disclosed to any third party (other than a witness or expert), except as may be required by law. Any party who commences any judicial proceeding in connection with an arbitration initiated hereunder shall endeavor to have the judicial record of any such proceeding sealed to the extent permitted by law.
Termination, Modification, and Other General Terms
Your use of the Sites or the Services is independent of us and not as our employee, agent, partner, or joint-venturer for any purpose. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
