CCM PAYS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please note that while the CCM Program provides extensive videos and printed materials in connection with the CCM Program (“CCM Materials”), any information disseminated through the CCM Program is not legal, tax, financial or medical advice. While the CCM Program reviews Medicare rules, templates, and medical considerations, this information is not: (i) a substitute for legal counsel from your attorney, (ii) any guarantee of payment or increased profitability, or (iii) a replacement for your own medical judgment. The information is general in nature and does not take into account the circumstances, physical well-being, mental status or medical requirements of a particular person, which are factors relevant to the correct diagnosis and treatment of any health condition.
You may register to participate in the CCM Program online, and the purchase of a single license is solely for the use and participation in the CCM Program by one licensed medical professional such as a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or other designated non-physician professionals who bill Medicare for the CCM codes (“Provider”). Separate licenses must be purchased for each Provider. Any attempt by multiple Providers to access the CCM Program through one license shall be deemed a material breach of these Terms, and we may immediately terminate your access to the CCM Program in addition to our other legal or equitable remedies.
In connection with these Terms, we are providing you with a limited, revocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to the CCM Program, including all CCM Materials and videos, strictly for your internal medical practice’s purposes only. You may not assign these Terms and your rights herein to any third party. We retain sole and exclusive rights, title and interest in connection with any content in the CCM Program and no rights are transferred to you in connection with these Terms. You may not create any derivative works of or revisions to the CCM Program, and any of the materials and content in connection with the CCM Program may not be shared, licensed or distributed to third parties directly or indirectly. We may use or incorporate your suggestions to the CCM Program without payment to you. You are solely responsible for your login and password details as well as any activity under your account. You may not permit any unauthorized use of the CCM Program or any infringement of any intellectual property rights. In the event of any breach of this provision or the confidentiality terms herein, the extent of the monetary damages cannot be feasibly calculated, and we may seek injunctive relief in any court of applicable jurisdiction without posting a bond.
The CCM Program shall be deemed confidential. “Confidential Information” means all information and materials obtained by the Recipient from the Disclosing Party, whether in tangible form, written or oral, that is identified as confidential or would reasonably be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and circumstances of disclosure. Confidential Information does not include information that (a) is already known to the Recipient prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party; (b) is or becomes generally known through no wrongful act of the Recipient; (c) is independently developed by the Recipient without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; or, (d) is received from a third party without restriction and without a breach of an obligation of confidentiality. The Recipient shall not use or disclose any Confidential Information without the Disclosing Party’s prior written permission, except pursuant to the Terms. The Recipient shall protect the confidentiality of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in the same manner that it protects the confidentiality of its own confidential information of a similar nature but using not less than a reasonable degree of care. The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that it is required to be disclosed pursuant to a statutory or regulatory provision or court order, provided that the Recipient provides prior notice of such disclosure to the Disclosing Party, unless such notice is prohibited by law, rule, regulation or court order. The confidentiality obligations set forth herein shall survive any termination of these Terms.
You represent that by registering online, you are at least 18 years old and the information which you are providing is accurate. Apart from members of your own medical practice, including your employees, you may not share your login or password details with any third parties .

Any notice shall be deemed delivered and effective when sent to the email address you provide us. We do not actively or directly share your log-in details or name with any third party advertisers. We require that you not share any personally identifiable information with us, including your social security number or driver’s license, or any information about your patients which identifies them individually or any other information which is protected by HIPAA or other applicable laws. We do assume any liability for any personally identifiable information which you may provide to any third party advertisers in connection with the CCM Program. To the extent that you provide us with a review of the CCM Program, you agree that we obtain all rights, title and interest in such review without any compensation to you, and we may share such review and your name on our website or for any legal purpose. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we are not obligated to share any review of the CCM Program which we receive.

THE CCM PROGRAM AND ANY MATERIALS AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW OR EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS, WE DO NOT PROVIDE ANY WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE CCM PROGRAM, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT ANY CONTENT, INCLUDING ANY VIDEOS, IN THE CCM PROGRAM WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE.

INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
You agree to indemnify, defend and release us from and against any and all losses, damages, claims, actions, settlements, and fines (including attorney fees and other legal expenses) arising out of any third-party suit or claim in connection with: (i) any medical treatment or advice provided by you to your patients regardless of whether or not such advice was based on the CCM program, (ii) any violation of these Terms, or (ii) the violation of any applicable laws or third party rights by you.
EXCEPT WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING UNDER THESE TERMS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES PAID BY YOU TO US FOR THE CCM PROGRAM WITHIN THE PRECEDING TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE CLAIM. IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR COVER OR LOSS OF USE, DATA, REVENUE OR PROFITS, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, NOTHING IN THE PRECEDING SENTENCE IS INTENDED TO LIMIT THE INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS OF A PARTY BASED ON THE NATURE OF THE THIRD-PARTY CLAIM. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE SUCCESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF OTHER REMEDIES.
We shall not be liable for any interruptions to your access to the CCM Program as a result of any circumstances beyond our control, including internet interruptions, power surges, or other technical delays.
No modification or amendment to this Agreement is effective except with both parties’ written consent.
No waiver of the provisions of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom it is to be enforced. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected or impaired thereby. A waiver of any provision, breach or default by either party or a party’s delay exercising its rights shall not constitute a waiver of any other provision, breach or default.
Any provisions of these Terms, including but not limited to indemnification and confidentiality, and which by their nature are intended to survive termination shall remain in full force and effect.
In the event of any dispute between us or any third party claims involving either party’s indemnification obligations, the parties agree that such dispute shall be resolved under California Law and in the jurisdiction of Placer County, California.
