1. Creation of Account with Company
a. To use the Platform, User must register for an account (an “Account”) by completing the account registration form on the Platform. Company offers the Platform for User’s business purposes, and not for personal, household, or consumer use. User must have, and hereby represent that it has, an independent business (whether it be as a self-employed individual/sole proprietor or as a corporation or other entity). To register for an Account, User must be and hereby represents that User is a legal entity or an individual 18 years or older who can form legally binding contracts. By registering for an Account, User agrees to: (i) abide by this Agreement and the processes, procedures, and guidelines described on the Platform; (ii) be financially responsible for User’s use of the Platform and the purchase and/or delivery of Provider Services, as applicable; and (iii) perform User’s obligations as specified by any Match Agreement that User accepts, unless such obligations are prohibited by applicable law or this Agreement. Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse, suspend, or revoke User’s access to the Platform upon discovery that any information User provided on any form or posted on the Platform is not true, accurate, or complete, or otherwise violates this Agreement, or for any other reason or no reason in Company's sole discretion.
b. User represents that it is a citizen or resident of the state or province (either, a “state”) indicated during its site registration and will use the Site Services only in connection with User’s professional services performed in said state. User represents it will not use the Site Services outside of the U.S or Canada. User further represents that User is not: (i) a citizen or resident of a geographic area in which access or use of the Platform is prohibited by applicable law, decree, regulation, treaty, or administrative act; (ii) a citizen or resident of, or located in, a geographic area that is subject to U.S. or other sovereign country sanctions or embargoes; or (iii) an individual, or an individual employed by or associated with an entity, identified on the U.S. Department of Commerce's Denied Persons or Entity List, the U.S. Department of Treasury's Specially Designated Nationals or Blocked Persons Lists, or the Department of State's Debarred Parties List or otherwise ineligible to receive items subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations or other economic sanction rules of any sovereign nation.
c. User agrees to provide true, accurate, and complete information on all registration and other forms User accesses on the Platform or provides to Company and to update User’s information to maintain its truthfulness, accuracy, and completeness. User must not provide false or misleading information about User’s location. User must not provide false or misleading information about User’s business or the services User’s business provides. User must not register for more than one Practice Account and one Provider Account without express written permission from Company. Solely for purposes of the foregoing sentence, “User” means you, any member of User’s immediate family, and any entity directly or indirectly controlled by you or any member of User’s immediate family.
d. When User registers for an Account and from time to time thereafter, User’s Account will be subject to verification.
e. When User registers for an Account, User will be asked to choose a username and password for the Account. User is entirely responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the confidentiality of User’s Account username and password. User authorizes Company to assume that any person using the Platform with User’s username and password either is User or is authorized to act for User. User agrees to notify Company immediately if User suspects or becomes aware of any unauthorized use of User’s account or any unauthorized access to User’s password or the password of any User of User’s Account.
2. Digital Signature.
By registering for an Account, User is deemed to have executed this Agreement electronically, effective on the date User registers its Account, pursuant to the U.S. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (the E-Sign Act) (15 U.S.C. § 7001, et seq.). User’s Account registration constitutes an acknowledgement that User is able to electronically receive, download, and print this Agreement.
3. Consent to Electronic Records.
a. In connection with this Agreement, User may be entitled to receive certain records, such as contracts, notices, and communications, in writing. To facilitate User’s use of the Platform, User gives Company permission to provide these records to User electronically instead of in paper form.
b. By registering for an Account, User consents to electronically receive and access, via email or the Platform, all records and notices for the services provided to User under this Agreement that Company would otherwise be required to provide to User in paper form. However, Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to communicate with User via the U.S. Postal Service and other third-party mail services using the address under which User’s account is registered. User’s consent to receive records and notices electronically will remain in effect until User withdraws it. User may withdraw User’s consent to receive further records and notices electronically at any time by contacting Customer Support at email@example.com. If User withdraws User’s consent to receive such records and notices electronically, Company will revoke User’s access to the Platform and its services, and User will no longer be able to use the Platform or its services. Any withdrawal of User’s consent to receive records and notices electronically will be effective only after Company has a reasonable period of time to process User’s request for withdrawal. Please note that User’s withdrawal of consent to receive records and notices electronically will not apply to records and notices electronically provided by Company to User prior to the withdrawal of User’s consent becoming effective.
c. In order to ensure that Company is able to provide records and notices to User electronically, User must notify Company of any change in User’s email address by updating User’s Account information on the Platform or by contacting Customer Support.
d. To access and retain the records and notices Company provides to User electronically, User will need: (i) a valid email address; (ii) a computer system that operates on a platform like Windows or Mac; (iii) a connection to the Internet; (iv) Current Versions of the software, browsers, plug-ins, or other computer applications and programs identified on the Platform (Users utilizing other browsers may experience compatibility difficulties); (v) a Current Version of a program that accurately reads and displays PDF files, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader version 7 or higher; (vi) a computer or device and an operating system capable of supporting all of the above; and (vii) a printer to print out and retain records and notices in paper form or electronic storage to retain records and notices in an electronic form. “Current Version,” as used herein, shall mean a version of the software that is currently being supported by its publisher. User should retain a copy of all of the records and notices Company sends to User electronically. By accepting and agreeing to this Agreement electronically, User represents that (i) User has read and understands the above consent to receive records and notices electronically; (ii) User satisfies the minimum hardware and software requirements specified above; and (iii) User’s consent will remain in effect until User withdraws User’s consent as specified above.
4. Platform and Matching.
a. Company provides an online platform, available at www.tempfillins.com (the “Platform”), through which participating dental offices (“Practices”) and participating dental service providers (“Providers”) can identify each other online to buy and sell dental services (“Provider Services”). Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Company provides the Platform services to Practices and Providers, including hosting and maintaining the Platform, enabling the formation of Match Agreements between Practices and Providers, and managing disputes related to those Match Agreements. As used in this Agreement, the term “Providers” refers to the following independent dental contractors registered on the Platform: (i) a dental specialist or resident in a dental specialist program (either one, a “Specialist”), (ii) a dentist (a “Dentist”) who renders general dental services, (iii) a registered dental hygienist (a “Hygienist”) who performs dental hygiene and cleaning, (iv) a dental assistant (an “Assistant”) who renders chair-side dental assistance, or (v) an office or administrative assistant (an “Office Assistant”) who renders front office or administrative assistance.
b. Practice may use the Platform to search for available Providers based on desired dental services and geography (each, a “Search”). Upon receiving a Search, the Platform will attempt to locate and display available Providers that match the Search parameters (the “Search Results”). Company makes no representations, warranties or guarantees as to the Search Results or availability of Providers. A Practice may submit a request (“Request”) to a Provider, in the Search Results, to provide the desired service, by clicking the “Book Appointment” button, or its equivalent, for the indicated Provider. The submission of a Request is in the sole discretion of Practice. Practice is under no obligation to retain any Provider presented to it by Company. Practice’s submission of a Request constitutes an offer to enter into a binding agreement with Provider, according to the terms of the Request and this Agreement. Practice may cancel the Request anytime prior to a Provider’s acceptance of the Request.
c. A Provider may either confirm or reject the appointment, in its sole discretion. Users acknowledge and agree that, when a Provider accepts a Request, Practice and Provider will be deemed to have entered into a binding agreement (the “Match Agreement”) with each other, comprised of the conditions or contractual provisions in the Request and this Agreement (the transaction, collectively, a “Match”). Users acknowledge and agree that Company is not a party to any Match Agreement, except as a third-party beneficiary.
a. To the extent a Practice or Provider provides Confidential Information to the other, the recipient will protect the secrecy of the discloser's Confidential Information with the same degree of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than due care, and will: (i) not disclose or permit others to disclose another's Confidential Information to anyone without first obtaining the express written consent of the owner of the Confidential Information; (ii) not use or permit the use of another's Confidential Information, except as necessary for the performance of Provider Services for the relevant Match Agreement (including, without limitation, the storage or transmission of Confidential Information on or through the Platform for use by Provider); and (iii) limit access to another's Confidential Information to its personnel who need to know such information for the performance of Provider Services for the relevant Match Agreement.
b. If and when Confidential Information is no longer needed for the performance of Provider Services for a Match Agreement or at Practice's or Provider's written request (which may be made at any time at Practice's or Provider's sole discretion), the party that received Confidential Information, will, at its expense, promptly destroy or return the disclosing party's Confidential Information and any copies thereof contained in or on its premises, systems, or any other equipment otherwise under its control. The party that received Confidential Information agrees to provide written certification to the party disclosing the Confidential Information of compliance with this subsection within ten days after the receipt of disclosing party's written request for such certification.
c. Without limiting the foregoing, Practice, Provider, and Company will not publish, or cause to be published, any other party's Confidential Information, except as may be necessary for performance of Provider Services for a Match Agreement.
6. Agreement Term and Termination.
a. This Agreement will become effective upon User’s first visit to the Platform and will remain in effect for the duration of User’s use of the Platform. Unless both User and Company agree otherwise in writing, either party may terminate this Agreement in its sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice to the other. In the event User properly terminates this Agreement, User’s right to use the Platform is automatically revoked, and User’s Account will be closed; however, (i) if User has any open Requests when User terminates this Agreement, User will continue to be bound by this Agreement until all such Requests have closed on the Platform; (ii) Company will continue to perform those services necessary to complete any open Request or related transaction between you and another User; and (iii) User will continue to be obligated to pay any amounts accrued but unpaid as of the date of termination or as of the completion of any open Requests, whichever is later, to Company for any services and to any Providers for any Provider Services. Without limiting any other provisions of this Agreement, the termination of this Agreement for any reason will not release User, any User with whom User has entered into a Match Agreement, or Company from any obligations incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination. Those portions of the Terms of Service necessary to implement the foregoing survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.
b. Company has the right, but not the obligation, to suspend or revoke User’s access to the Platform and Platform services if Company believes that User has violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement or violated Company’s rights or those of another party. Without limiting Company's other remedies, Company may temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend, or permanently revoke User’s access to the Platform and refuse to provide any or all Platform services to User if: (a) User breaches the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement or other parts of the Terms of Service; (b) Company suspects or becomes aware that User has provided false or misleading information to Company; or (c) Company believes, in its sole discretion, that User’s actions may cause legal liability for User, our Users, or Company or our Affiliates; may be contrary to the interests of the Platform or the User community; or may involve illicit activity. Once User’s Account is suspended or closed, User must not continue to use the Platform under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without Company's prior written consent. If User attempts to use the Platform under a different Account, Company reserves the right to reclaim available funds in that Account and/or use an available Payment Method to pay for any amounts owed by User to the extent permitted by applicable law. User understands that any closure of User’s Account may involve deletion of any content stored in User’s Account for which Company will have no liability whatsoever.
c. Without limiting Company's other remedies, if User engages in actions or activities that circumvent the Platform or otherwise reduce fees owed Company or Company’s Affiliates under this Agreement, User must pay Company for all fees owed to Company and its Affiliates and reimburse Company for all losses and costs (including any and all time of Company's employees) and reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees. In addition, violations of this Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions.
d. When User’s Account is closed for any reason, User will no longer have access to data, messages, files, and other material User keeps on the Platform.
e. No party to this Agreement shall incur any liability whatsoever for any damage, loss or expenses of any kind suffered or incurred by the other party arising from or incident to any termination of this Agreement which complies with the terms of the Agreement whether or not the terminating party is aware of any such damage, loss or expenses.
f. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason whatsoever, User (i) shall immediately discontinue any use of the name, logotype, Marks or slogans of Company, (ii) shall immediately discontinue all representations or statements from which it might be inferred that any relationship exists between the parties, (iii) will immediately return to Company all Proprietary Information and any other information or materials of Company.
g. Termination of this Agreement and/or closing of User’s Account will not relieve User of the requirement to pay for Provider Services performed prior to the effective date of the termination or thereafter for any Match Agreements entered into before termination of this Agreement. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, Company will notify User if Company closes User’s Account, unless Company believes, in its sole judgment, that giving notice may cause damage. User acknowledges and agrees that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Platform depends on transparency of User's Account status to all Users, including both yourself and other Users who have entered into Match Agreements with User. User therefore agrees as follows: IF COMPANY DECIDES TO SUSPEND OR CLOSE USER’S ACCOUNT, COMPANY HAS THE RIGHT BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION TO: (A) NOTIFY OTHER USERS THAT HAVE ENTERED INTO MATCH AGREEMENTS WITH USER TO INFORM THEM OF USER’S SUSPENDED OR CLOSED ACCOUNT STATUS, AND (B) PROVIDE THOSE USERS WITH A SUMMARY OF THE REASONS FOR USER’S ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR CLOSURE.
h. After this Agreement terminates, the terms of this Agreement that expressly or by their nature contemplate performance after the Agreement terminates or expires will survive and continue in full force and effect.
