This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Patient Connect 360 or the other Patient Connect 360 Parties.
While we enable Users and Healthcare Providers to communicate with one another, we are not responsible for monitoring such information and communications, and we are not a party to transactions or interactions that may occur between Users and Healthcare Providers. In addition, we are not responsible for and we expressly disclaim all liability that may result from information made available by Users or Healthcare Providers and the conduct of Users and Healthcare Providers, whether online or offline. Patient Connect 360 does not sponsor, endorse, recommend or approve of any HealthcareProviders. Additionally, we cannot and do not represent or warrant that any Healthcare Provider is licensed, qualified, insured or capable of performing any product or service, and we make no representations or warranties about the expertise, professional qualifications, or quality of work of any Healthcare Provider, or the suitability, reliability or accuracy of the products and services they provide. We do not control, endorse or take responsibility for any User Content or third-party content available on or linked to by our Services. Patient Connect 360 makes no warranty, representation or guarantee with respect to products and services offered by Healthcare Providers, and Patient Connect 360 specifically disclaims any warranty, representation or guarantee with respect to the quality, safety, legality or other characteristics of such products and services, or with respect to the conduct of any Healthcare Provider in connection with such services. Our Services are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In addition, Patient Connect 360 does not represent or warrant that our Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. While Patient Connect 360 attempts to make your access to and use of our Services safe, we cannot and do not represent or warrant that our Services or servers are free of viruses or other harmful components. You assume the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Services including but not limited to all of the risks associated with any online or offline interactions with Users and Healthcare Providers.
Patient Connect 360 and the other Patient Connect 360 Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability— whether based in contract, tort, negligence, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if Patient Connect 360 or the other Patient Connect 360 Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the total liability of Patient Connect 360 and the other Patient Connect 360 Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of the amount paid by you during the twelve (12) months prior to the claim, or, if you have not paid Patient Connect 360 for the use of any Services, the amount of $100. The limitations set forth in this section (a) will apply even if the remedies otherwise provided under these Terms, at law or in equity, fail of their essential purpose, and regardless of the form or cause of action or the alleged basis of the claim, and (b) will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of Patient Connect 360 or the other Patient Connect 360 Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Patient Connect 360 and the other Patient Connect 360 Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. You expressly waive any rights you may have as any other statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.
By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Patient Connect 360 and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or Patient Connect 360 seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the jurisdiction of your billing address or disputes in which you or Patient Connect 360 seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Patient Connect 360 waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Dallas, TX USA County. You and Patient Connect 360 agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Patient Connect 360 and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and Patient Connect 360 agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 19 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Company agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Company will pay the remaining fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, Company will pay all fees and costs. You and Patient Connect 360 agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States sitting in Dallas County, Texas have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Patient Connect 360 will not have the right to assert the claim. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 19 by contacting us at Patient Connect 360 . In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 20.
Any dispute arising out of or related to the Services or these Terms will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, USA, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Dallas County, Washington.
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will post the amended Terms to our Services and update the “Last Updated” date above. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop accessing and using our Services
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate or suspend your right to access or use our Services at any time. We will not be liable to you for any termination or suspension of your access or use of our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Patient Connect 360 relating to your access to and use of our Services. The failure of Patient Connect 360 to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
