1. ABOUT THE SITE
You acknowledge that although some Content may be provided by Patient 360 or independent healthcare professionals, the provision of such Content does not create a medical professional/patient relationship, and does not constitute an opinion, medical advice, or diagnosis or treatment, but is provided to assist you in choosing a doctor, dentist or other healthcare specialist, professional, provider, organization, or agents or affiliates thereof (collectively, “Healthcare Provider”). “Content” means content, text, data, graphics, images, photographs, video, audio, information, suggestions, guidance, and other materials provided, made available or otherwise found through the Services and/or Site.
2. WE DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE
The Content that you obtain or receive from ShareMD, its employees, contractors, partners, sponsors, advertisers, licensors or otherwise through the Services, is for informational and scheduling purposes only. All medically related information, including, without limitation, information shared via the Site, the ShareMD blog, ShareMD social channels, ShareMD emails and text messages, and ShareMD advertising, comes from independent healthcare professionals and organizations and is for informational purposes only.
We do not recommend or endorse any specific tests, Healthcare Providers, procedures, opinions, or other information that may appear through the Services. If you rely on any Content, you do so solely at your own risk. We encourage you to independently confirm any Content relevant to you with other sources, including the Healthcare Provider’s office, medical associations relevant to the applicable specialty, your state medical boards, and the appropriate licensing or certification authorities to verify listed credentials and education.
3. NO DOCTOR PATIENT RELATIONSHIP
DOCTORS, DENTISTS, NURSES, AND OTHER MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS USE THE SERVICES TO SHARE CONTENT WITH YOU, BUT YOUR USE OF THIS CONTENT IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR HEALTHCARE. NO LICENSED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL/PATIENT RELATIONSHIP IS CREATED WHEN YOU USE THE SERVICES OR CONTENT. THIS IS TRUE WHETHER SUCH CONTENT IS PROVIDED BY OR THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR THROUGH ANY OTHER COMMUNICATIONS FROM SHAREMD INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE SITE, SHAREMD BLOG, SHAREMD SOCIAL CHANNELS, SHAREMD EMAILS OR TEXT MESSAGE LINKS TO OTHER SITES, OR ANY ASSISTANCE WE MAY PROVIDE TO HELP YOU FIND AN APPROPRIATE HEALTHCARE PROVIDER IN ANY FIELD.
ShareMD encourages Healthcare Providers to use the Services responsibly, but we have no control over, and cannot guarantee the availability of, any Healthcare Provider at any particular time.
4. AUTHORIZATION AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT; IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT HEALTHCARE PROVIDER RELATIONSHIPS
In connection with using the Services to locate and schedule appointments with Healthcare Providers, you understand that:
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CHOOSING YOUR OWN HEALTHCARE PROVIDER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DETERMINING WHETHER THE APPLICABLE HEALTHCARE PROVIDER IS SUITABLE FOR YOUR HEALTHCARE NEEDS BASED ON SPECIALTY, EXPERIENCE, QUALIFICATION, LICENSES AND OTHER IMPORTANT FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES THAT COULD IMPACT YOUR CARE.
To help you find Healthcare Providers who may be suitable for your needs, and enable the maximum choice and diversity of Healthcare Providers participating in the Services, we will provide you with lists and/or profiles of Healthcare Providers. These results are based on information that you provide to us, such as insurance information, geographical location, and healthcare specialty. They may also be based on other criteria (including, for example, Healthcare Provider availability, past selections by and/or ratings of Healthcare Providers by you or by other ShareMD users, and past experience of ShareMD users with Healthcare Providers). Note that ShareMD does not make any representations or warranties with respect to these Healthcare Providers or the quality of the healthcare services they may provide.
5. THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE INFORMATIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
The Services are an informational and educational resource for consumers and Healthcare Providers. We may, but have no obligation to, publish Content through the Services that is reviewed by our editorial personnel. No party (including ShareMD) involved in the preparation or publication of such works guarantee that the Content is timely, accurate or complete, and they will not be responsible or liable for any errors or omissions in, or for the results obtained from the use of, such Content.
Healthcare Provider Content:
Healthcare Provider and practice Content is intended for general reference purposes only. Healthcare Provider Content may be provided by the Healthcare Provider and/or office staff, and collected from multiple other data sources that may not be confirmed by the Healthcare Provider. Such Content can change frequently and may become out of date, incomplete or inaccurate. Neither the Site nor ShareMD provides any advice, qualification, or certification about any particular Healthcare Provider.
Procedures, products, services and devices discussed and/or marketed through the Services are not applicable to all individuals, patients or all clinical situations. Any procedures, products, services or devices represented through the Services by advertisers, sponsors, and other participants of the Services, either paid or unpaid, are presented for your awareness and do not necessarily imply, and we make no claims as to, safety or appropriateness for any particular individual or prediction of effectiveness, outcome or success.

You agree that any communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing. When permitted by law, we may also send you promotional communications via email, including newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided.
8. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
8.1 Your Responsibilities Generally
You are responsible for your healthcare expenses. Usual, customary and any other charges for any medical or related services rendered by Healthcare Providers will apply and will be entirely your responsibility. You are responsible for ensuring that all information that you provide to ShareMD is accurate and up-to-date, including your insurance information. Some Services may not be available through ShareMD or your Healthcare Provider depending upon a number of factors, including your insurance participation. Ultimately, you must resolve any dispute between you or any Healthcare Provider arising from any transaction hereunder directly with the Healthcare Provider.
You may only use the Services for lawful, non-commercial purposes. You may not use the Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair our servers or networks, or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Services. You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any of the Services, user accounts, or computer systems or networks, through hacking, password mining or any other means.

You assume all risks and liability associated with Posted Information, including anyone’s reliance on its quality, accuracy, or reliability, and any risks associated with personal information you disclose. You may not imply that Posted Information is in any way sponsored or endorsed by ShareMD.
You may expose yourself to liability if, for example, Your Content contains material that is false, intentionally misleading, or defamatory; violates any third-party right, including any copyright, trademark, service mark, patent, trade secret, moral right, privacy right, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary right; contains material that is unlawful, including illegal hate speech or pornography; exploits or otherwise harms minors; violates or advocates the violation of any law or regulation; or violates these Terms.

By posting Posted Information through the Services, you agree to and hereby do grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to ShareMD and its contractors an irrevocable, perpetual, royalty-free, fully sublicensable, fully paid up, worldwide license to use, copy, publicly perform, digitally perform, publicly display, and distribute such Posted Information and to adapt, edit, translate, prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such Posted Information.
12. YOUR USE OF CONTENT
All of the Content is owned by us or our licensors and is protected by copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secret laws, other proprietary rights, and international treaties.

Except as expressly provided herein, neither ShareMD nor its suppliers grant you any express or implied rights, and all rights in the Services not expressly granted by ShareMD to you are retained by ShareMD.
We created ShareMD to improve patients’ healthcare experience, and we want your experience with ShareMD to be exceptional. WHILE WE WORK HARD TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER, AND NO DUTY TO TAKE ANY ACTION REGARDING: (A) WHICH USERS GAIN ACCESS TO THE SERVICES, (B) WHAT CONTENT YOU ACCESS, (C) WHAT EFFECTS THE CONTENT MAY HAVE ON YOU, (D) HOW YOU MAY INTERPRET OR USE THE CONTENT, OR (E) WHAT ACTIONS YOU MAY TAKE AS A RESULT OF HAVING BEEN EXPOSED TO THE CONTENT. YOU RELEASE US FROM ALL LIABILITY FOR YOU HAVING ACQUIRED, YOU HAVING NOT ACQUIRED, OR YOUR USE OF CONTENT. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING SUGGESTIONS OR RECOMMENDATIONS OF SERVICES OR PRODUCTS OFFERED OR PURCHASED THROUGH THE SERVICES. WE HAVE NO SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH OR FIDUCIARY DUTY TO YOU.
WE MAKE NO GUARANTEES, REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS, EXPERTISE, QUALITY OF WORK, PRICE OR COST INFORMATION, INSURANCE COVERAGE OR BENEFIT INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES. IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY DECISION MADE OR ACTION TAKEN BY YOU IN RELIANCE ON ANY SUCH CONTENT. FURTHERMORE, WE DO NOT IN ANY WAY ENDORSE OR RECOMMEND ANY INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY LISTED OR ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE SERVICES.
WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” WE MAKE NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES ABOUT THE SERVICES. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ALL STATUTORY WARRANTIES, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES AND THE SITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES THAT THE SERVICES ARE MERCHANTABLE, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, ACCURATE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NEED, OR NON-INFRINGING. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE EFFECTIVE, RELIABLE OR ACCURATE OR WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES (EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH THIRD-PARTY NETWORKS) AT TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF YOUR CHOOSING. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS OR COMPLETENESS OF INFORMATION PROVIDED BY USERS OF THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER DATA OR INFORMATION PROVIDED OR RECEIVED THROUGH THE SERVICES. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, SHAREMD MAKES NO WARRANTIES ABOUT THE INFORMATION SYSTEMS, SOFTWARE AND FUNCTIONS MADE ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER SECURITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE TRANSMISSION OF SENSITIVE INFORMATION. SHAREMD DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SITE OR THE SERVICES WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE, BUG-FREE OR FREE FROM DEFECTS, THAT LOSS OF DATA WILL NOT OCCUR, OR THAT THE SERVICES, SOFTWARE OR SITE ARE FREE OF COMPUTER VIRUSES, CONTAMINANTS OR OTHER HARMFUL ITEMS.
14. GENERAL LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; RELEASE
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, EXCEED THE GREATER OF: (a) THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES, IF ANY, THAT YOU PAID TO CREATE OR MAINTAIN AN ACCOUNT WITH THE SITE OR THE SERVICES, OR (b) $100.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU (OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY CLAIMING UNDER OR THROUGH YOU) FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICES. THESE EXCLUSIONS APPLY TO ANY CLAIMS FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, OR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE OR NEGLIGENCE OF HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS UTILIZED THROUGH USE OF THE SERVICES, EVEN IF WE KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED IN ACCORDANCE HEREIN TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release ShareMD 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. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH SAYS “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
If you’re not using the Service appropriately, we’ll want to work with you to set things straight. But we reserve the right, if we determine it is best, to terminate, suspend and/or deactivate your use immediately, without notice, if there has been a violation of these Terms or other policies and terms posted on the Services by you or by someone using your Account. We may also terminate, suspend or deactivate your Account for any other reason, including inactivity for an extended period. ShareMD shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination, suspension or deactivation of your access to the Services. Further, you agree not to attempt to use the Services after any such termination, suspension or deactivation (except where deactivation is due solely to inactivity, and you are permitted to create another Account). Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 shall survive any termination or expiration of these Terms.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us, our employees, contractors, officers, directors, agents, parent and other affiliates, from all liabilities, claims, demands and expenses, including attorney’s fees, that arise from or are related to (a) your use of the Services or Content, (b) your violation of these Terms or the Additional Terms), or of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity, by you or any person using your Credentials, or (c) your Provided Information or other feedback. The foregoing indemnification obligation does not apply to liabilities, claims and expenses arising as a result of our own gross negligence or intentional misconduct.
17. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
17.1 Limitation of Claims
NO ACTION ARISING UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM, MAY BE BROUGHT BY YOU MORE THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE; ACTIONS BROUGHT THEREAFTER ARE FOREVER BARRED.
17.2 Choice of Law; Arbitration Clause and Class Action Waiver – Important – Please Review as This Affects Your Legal Rights
We hope that we can work out any disagreements you might have with ShareMD. But if there is a dispute that needs to be further resolved, that process will take place according to this section. These Terms shall be deemed to have been entered into and shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia as applied to contracts made and to be performed entirely within Georgia, without giving effect to the state’s conflicts of law statute.
Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, YOU AND SHAREMD AGREE (A) TO WAIVE YOUR AND SHAREMD’S RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, OR THE SERVICES, RESOLVED IN A COURT, AND (B) TO WAIVE YOUR AND SHAREMD’S RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. Instead, you and ShareMD agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the dispute decided by a judge or jury in court) conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the arbitration rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “AAA Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern.
Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in Fulton County, Georgia. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the AAA Rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL.
You and ShareMD agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 17 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
YOU AND SHAREMD EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY DISPUTES ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
18.1 Digital Millennium Copyright Act Compliance
We have a policy of limiting access to our Services and terminating the accounts of users who infringe the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that anything on our Site infringes any copyright that you own or control, you may notify ShareMD’s Designated Agent as follows:
Designated Agent: Chief Technology Officer
Address: 10800 Davis Drive, Alpharetta, GA 30307
Telephone: (404) 491-1067
Please see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. You should also note that if you knowingly make any material misrepresentation in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you will be liable for any damages, including, without limitation, costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.
We may change these Terms at any time, as we reasonably deem appropriate. If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Services or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. You should check the Terms from time to time when you use the Services to determine if any changes have been made. Any changes to these Terms are effective upon posting to the Services. If you disagree with any of these Terms, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue your use of the Services. Your continued use after a change has been posted constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you may not access or use the Services.
In the event any one or more of the provisions of these Terms shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms shall be unimpaired. Further, the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a provision that comes closest to the intention of the parties that underlie the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision, except to the extent no such provision is valid, legal and enforceable, in which case such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
18.4 Entire Agreement
These Terms and any supplemental terms, policies, rules and guidelines posted through the Services, each of which are incorporated herein by reference, constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all previous written or oral agreements. If any part of these Terms are held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. The failure of ShareMD to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
The headings of the sections of these Terms are for convenience only, do not form a part hereof, and in no way limit, define, describe, modify, interpret or construe the meaning, scope or intent of these Terms or any terms or conditions therein.
We may assign these Terms at any time, including, without limitation, to any parent, subsidiary, or any affiliated company, or as part of the sale to, merger with, or other transfer of our company to another entity. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense these Terms to anyone else and any attempt to do so in violation of this section shall be null and void.
You must be 18 years of age or over, or the legal age to form a binding contract in your jurisdiction if that age is greater than 18 years of age, to use the Services. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18 or the applicable legal age in your jurisdiction, you can use the Services only under the supervision of your parent or guardian who has agreed to these Terms. Those under the age of 13 may not use the Site or Services. Parents or legal guardians of a child under the age of 18 may use the Services on behalf of such a minor child. By using the Services on behalf of a minor child, you represent and warrant that you are the parent or legal guardian of such child, and that all references in these Terms to “you” shall refer to such child or such other individual on whose behalf you have authorization to enter into these Terms and you in your capacity as the parent or legal guardian of such child or as the authorized party of such individual.
If you do not qualify under these Terms, do not use the Services. Use of the Services is void where prohibited by applicable law, and the right to access the Site is revoked in such jurisdictions. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into these Terms. The Services are administered in the U.S. and intended for U.S. users only; any use outside of the U.S. or use related to activities outside of the U.S. is prohibited and at the user’s own risk. Users are responsible for compliance with any local, state or federal laws applicable to their use of the Services.
