Last revised October, 2016

These terms and conditions of use (“Terms of Use”) apply to healthcare and content providers and govern your use of our online interfaces and properties (e.g., websites and mobile applications) owned and controlled by Doxy.me, LLC (“Doxy.me”), including the   www.doxy.me  website (the “Site”) and the services available to users through the Site (“Services”). Your compliance with these Terms of Use is a condition to your use of the Site. If you do not agree to be bound by the Terms of Use, promptly exit this Site. Please also consult our Privacy Policy   for a description of our privacy practices and policies, including how we collect and handle your personal health information and financial information.

1.             Ownership Of The Site

All pages within this Site and any material made available for download are the property of Doxy.me, or its licensors or suppliers, as applicable. The Site is protected by United States and international copyright and trademark laws. The Contents of the Site, including without limitation the files, documents, text, photographs, images, audio, and video, and any materials accessed through or made available for use or download through this Site (“Content”) may not be copied, distributed, modified, reproduced, published or used, in whole or in part, except for purposes authorized or approved in writing by Doxy.me. You may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose, or deep linking to, any name, trademarks, service marks, logo, Content or other proprietary information (including; images, text, page layout, or form) of Doxy.me without our express written consent.

2.             Providers

To be a healthcare provider using the Site (“Provider”) you must agree to comply with all laws, medical or other board rules, or other rules and regulations applicable to you as a healthcare provider or other professional using the Site .  Your relationship with the Doxy.Me users (including your patients/clients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with Doxy.me. Doxy.me does not practice medicine and offers no medical services. As set forth more fully in Section 10, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices and other interactions with patients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Provider is solely responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, and Doxy.me shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.

3.         Independent Professional Judgment and Indemnification

Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good professional practice. While software products such as the Site and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider and its personnel offer to patients, many factors, including 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. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s patients. In this regard, Provider releases Doxy.me and waives any and all potential claims against Doxy.me as a result of Provider’s use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s patients. As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Doxy.me harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any patient of Provider or its personnel, 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 Doxy.me, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of the use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain Doxy.me’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of Doxy.me or defect in the Site or Services. Doxy.me will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement.

4.         Electronic Communications
