Except as expressly provided herein, use of our Sites grants no rights to you of our Content. Any rights to use our Content not expressly granted to you under this Agreement are reserved for Peeradigm or our subsidiaries, affiliates, or licensors. Nothing contained in this Agreement will in any way affect, impair, or limit Peeradigm's rights to fully exploit our Content. You acknowledge and agree not to directly or indirectly contest, challenge, assist in contesting or challenging the validity or ownership of our Content, or take any action whatsoever in derogation of Peeradigm's rights therein or in breach of this Agreement or any Additional Terms.

B. Content Disclaimer. The information on our Sites is for educational purposes only, and is not designed to and does not provide medical advice or professional diagnosis, opinion, treatment, treatment outcome, or services to you or any other individual. Such information may or may not reflect the most current medical developments. Accordingly, the information on our Sites is not promised or guaranteed to be correct or complete and should not be relied on as such. As medical advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, nothing provided on our Sites should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent medical advice.

C. Proprietary Rights. All materials contained on our Sites are protected by United States copyright law or similar laws of other jurisdictions, and may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, displayed, published, or broadcast without Peeradigm's prior written consent, or in the case of third-party materials, the owner of that content. You may not alter or remove any copyright, trademark, or other notice from copies of the content. You may, however, download one machine-readable copy and one print copy per page of material from our Sites for your personal, non-commercial use only.
D. License Grant. You are granted a personal, revocable, limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferrable license to access and use our Sites conditioned on your continued acceptance of and strict compliance with this Agreement. You may use our Sites and Content for your non-commercial, personal use and for no other purpose. Peeradigm reserves the right to bar, restrict, or suspend any user's access to our Sites and Content or to terminate this license at any time for any reason. Peeradigm also reserves any rights not explicitly granted in this Agreement.
E. License Restrictions. Unless otherwise expressly stated in this Agreement or evidenced by Peeradigm's prior written consent, you may not modify, translate, create derivative works of, copy, distribute, market, display, remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels from, lease, sell, sublicense, transfer, decompile, reverse engineer, or incorporate into any information retrieval system, our Sites, our Content, or any portion thereof. Further, you may not: (1) use our Sites for any unauthorized or illegal purpose, including, without limitation, obtaining or attempting to obtain unauthorized access to our Sites or Content; (2) interfere with the proper working of our Sites, including, without limitation, transmitting any virus, worm, timer, clock, Trojan horse, or other limiting routine, instruction, or design; or (3) interfere with any other person's use and enjoyment of our Sites and Content.
F. User Content. From time to time, you may post, share, or otherwise submit content, including, without limitation, text, graphics, photos, audios, or videos (collectively, your "User Content"), on our Sites. You hereby grant Peeradigm a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, irrevocable, perpetual right and license to host, use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform, publicly display, or otherwise use, store, and exploit in any manner whatsoever all or any portion of your User Content on our Sites for any purpose whatsoever in all formats; on or through any medium known or hereafter developed; and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed, and to advertise, market, and promote same. This license also gives Peeradigm the right to incorporate your User Content, in whole or in part, into other works in any arrangement or medium currently used or later developed.
You also grant Peeradigm the right to sub-license and authorize others to exercise any of the rights granted to Peeradigm under this Agreement, and each such third party will be entitled to benefit from the rights and licenses granted to Peeradigm hereunder. You further authorize Peeradigm to publish your User Content in a searchable format that may be accessed by members of our Sites.
Except as prohibited by law, you waive any moral rights you may have in your User Content, even if such content is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. To the extent not waivable, you irrevocably agree not to exercise such rights (if any) in a manner that interferes with any exercise of the granted rights. You understand that you will not receive any fees, sums, consideration, or remuneration for any of the rights granted herein.
You agree Peeradigm has no obligation to pre-screen, monitor, or enforce your intellectual property rights to your User Content but has the right to protect and enforce Peeradigm's and our licensees' licensed rights to such content. You also agree Peeradigm has no obligation to, but may review, monitor, display, accept, or exploit your User Content; provided, Peeradigm reserves the right to treat your User Content (or certain portions thereof) on our Sites as content stored at the direction of members for which Peeradigm will not exercise editorial control, except to enforce the rights of third parties and the content restrictions set forth in Peeradigm's Code of Conduct when notice of such violations are directed to Peeradigm's attention. User Content may not be maintained on our Sites for any specific period of time and may be deleted, edited, distributed, moved, blocked, distorted, or refused exploitation without notice or liability at Peeradigm's sole discretion. Once submitted, you have no right to access or control your User Content on our Sites and agree Peeradigm is not obligated to use such content and that you will not receive any consideration or compensation for your User Content or any exploitation thereof.
You shall evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of your User Content, including, without limitation, any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content. Because Peeradigm may not pre-screen your User Content, you bear legal responsibility for others' exposure to any offensive, indecent, or objectionable material contained therein.
G. Contributions to Our Sites. Peeradigm provides an area for you to contribute feedback on our Sites. Such feedback includes, without limitation, ideas, articles, suggestions, or proposals, and is separate and apart from your User Content (collectively, your "Contributions"). When you submit your Contributions to our Sites, you acknowledge and agree: (1) your Contributions do not contain any type of confidential or proprietary information; (2) Peeradigm shall not be liable or under any obligation to ensure or maintain confidentiality, expressed or implied, related to any Contributions; (3) Peeradigm shall be entitled to use or disclose any such Contributions in any manner whatsoever; (4) your Contributions shall automatically become the sole property of Peeradigm; and (5) Peeradigm is under no obligation to either compensate or provide you with any form of reimbursement in any manner or nature.
All visitors to our Sites, whether or not registered, shall be deemed "users" of our Sites for the purpose of this Agreement. Once an individual registers for our Sites, through the process of creating an account, the user shall then become a "member."
To register and become a "member" of our Sites, you must be eighteen (18) years of age to enter into and form a legally binding contract. In addition, you must be a licensed mental health professional in good standing and not an individual previously barred from using our Sites or from practicing in your profession under the laws and statutes of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction.
To register on our Sites, you must provide certain personal information. This decision is purely optional. If you elect not to provide such information, you may not be able to access certain materials or content, participate in certain features of our Sites, or engage in social networking. When you provide information to our Sites, you agree to: (a) furnish factual, correct, current, and complete information with regards to yourself, as may be requested by the data registration process; and (b) maintain and promptly update your registration and profile information to maintain accuracy and completeness at all times. If you knowingly provide any information of a false or incomplete nature, Peeradigm will have sufficient grounds and rights to suspend or terminate your member account in violation of this Agreement and, as such, refuse any and all current or future use of our Sites or any portion thereof.
It is Peeradigm's priority to ensure the safety and privacy of all its visitors, users, and members, especially that of children. For that reason, Peeradigm did not design our Sites for use by children, as such are member-only forums for licensed mental health professionals. Anyone under the age of eighteen (18) can use our Sites only with the supervision of a parent or guardian.
Member Account, Username, Password, and Security
After completion of the registration data and creation of your username, you will receive a random password (which you must later change) and account designation. You shall be responsible for maintaining the secrecy and confidentiality of your password and for all activities that transpire on or within your account. Your account username and password are to be used only by you. It shall be your responsibility to notify Peeradigm immediately if you notice any unauthorized access or use of your account or password or any other security breach. Peeradigm shall not be held liable for any loss or damage arising from any failure to comply with this term and condition of this Agreement. In our sole discretion, Peeradigm reserves the right to monitor, terminate your account, or deny you access without notice and without liability.
Your membership will automatically renew, and you will be charged as specified in the description of your membership at the time of the renewal. You will be notified of any changes in membership rates. Either you or Peeradigm can cancel your membership at any time. In the event of such cancellation, no partial month refunds will be given. Peeradigm shall be under no obligation to issue refunds under any circumstances. In the event Peeradigm determines you are entitled to a refund of all or part of the fees you paid, however, such refund shall only be made to the credit card account originally used by you to purchase your membership.
Member Interactions and Disputes
You are solely responsible for your interaction with other members of our Sites, whether online or offline. Peeradigm is not responsible or liable for the conduct or content of any member. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other members. Please exercise common sense and your best judgment in your interactions with others, when you submit or post any personal or other information, and in all your other online activities on or in connection with our Sites.
Warranties and Representations
You warrant and represent: (a) you are an individual eighteen (18) years of age or older with the legal right and capacity to enter into this Agreement and comply with its terms; (b) no known contractual or legal obligations or pending or threatened claim or litigation would have a material adverse impact on your ability to perform as required by this Agreement; (c) you are a licensed mental health professional; (d) you have accurately identified yourself through your membership account on our Sites and will maintain the accuracy of such identification; and (e) you hold and will continue to hold all rights necessary to enter into and perform your obligations under this Agreement.
You also warrant and represent you will be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all modem, telecommunications equipment, computer hardware, wireless devices, and other equipment needed to access and use our Sites and Content, and you will be responsible for all charges related thereto.
You further warrant and represent that each time you submit any User Content: (a) you shall not submit content that depicts any minor without having all proper consents from the parent or legal guardian of such minor; (b) you shall not submit content that violates client anonymity; (c) you own the rights to your User Content and the right to grant all the rights and licenses in this Agreement or have all necessary rights and licenses from any owners of such rights to enter into this Agreement and grant Peeradigm these licenses; (d) your User Content is accurate; (e) your User Content does not and, as to Peeradigm's permitted uses and exploitation set forth in the terms of this Agreement, will not infringe any intellectual property or other right of any third party; and (f) your User Content will not violate this Agreement or any Additional Terms, or cause injury or harm to any person. Upon our request, you will furnish Peeradigm any documentation, substantiation, or releases necessary to verify your compliance with this Agreement. Peeradigm has no obligation to monitor or enforce your intellectual property rights to your User Content, but you grant us the right to protect and enforce Peeradigm's rights to your User Content, including by bringing and controlling actions in your name and on your behalf (at Peeradigm's cost and expense, to which you hereby consent and irrevocably appoint Peeradigm, as your attorney-in-fact, with the power of substitution and delegation, which appointment is coupled with an interest).
Upon registration, you hereby acknowledge that by using our Sites to send electronic communications, including, without limitation, email, searches, and uploading files, photos, or videos, you will cause communications to be sent through Peeradigm's computer network. Such use and your consent to this Agreement, therefore, serve as acknowledgement that the use of our Sites shall result in interstate transmissions.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you shall defend (if requested by Peeradigm), indemnify, and hold harmless Peeradigm and our subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, officers, partners, and licensors from and against all claims arising from or in any way related to your use of our Sites or Content; your User Content; Peeradigm's use of information you submitted to us (including your User Content); your violation of this Agreement or any Additional Terms; your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, or other governmental or quasi-governmental authorities in connection with your use of our Sites or Content; your violation of any rights of another person; or any other actions connected with your use of our Sites or Content, including any liability or expense, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs, and attorneys' fees.
You will cooperate as fully required by Peeradigm in the defense of any claim. Peeradigm will provide prompt written notice of any such claims, but failure to provide such notice will not release you from any of your obligations herein, except to the extent you are actually prejudiced by such failure, and will not relieve you from any other liability you may have to Peeradigm other than under this Section.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Peeradigm retains the exclusive right to settle, compromise, and pay any claims, demands, proceedings, suits, actions, or causes of action brought against Peeradigm under the terms and provisions herein. Peeradigm reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim without the prior written consent of a duly authorized officer or agent of Peeradigm.
Peeradigm shall reserve the right at any time it may deem fit to modify, alter, or discontinue, whether temporarily or permanently, our Sites or any part thereof, with or without prior notice. In addition, Peeradigm shall not be held liable to you or any third party for any such modification, alteration, or discontinuance.
This Agreement will take effect at the time you begin using our Sites. Peeradigm reserves the right, without notice or liability, at any time and for any reason to deny you access to our Sites or any portion thereof, and to terminate this Agreement. This Agreement will automatically terminate if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions set forth herein. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by ceasing to use our Sites or canceling your member account, but all applicable provisions of this Agreement will survive such termination. Upon termination, you must destroy all copies of any portion of our Sites, including any of our Content, in your possession.
As a member of our Sites, you may cancel or terminate your account or access to our Sites by submitting a cancellation or termination request to email@example.com.
Our Sites may contain advertisements and use third-party analytic service providers to evaluate and provide Peeradigm or third parties with information about the use of our Sites and viewing or advertising our Content. The inclusion of advertisements on our Sites does not imply Peeradigm's endorsement of the advertised products or services. Any correspondence or business dealings with or the participation in any promotions of advertisers located on our Sites, which may include payment or delivery of related products or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranty, or representations associated with such dealings, are and shall be solely between you and any such advertiser. Moreover, Peeradigm shall not be held responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any nature or manner incurred as a result of any such dealings or the presence of such advertisers on our Sites.
Our Sites may contain links to third-party websites or resources. Peeradigm has no control over the content, operations, policies, terms, or other elements of these websites or resources and does not assume any obligation to review same. Peeradigm does not endorse, approve, or sponsor any third-party websites, content, advertising, information, materials, products, services, or other items. Nor is Peeradigm responsible for the quality or delivery of the products or services offered, accessed, obtained, or advertised at such third-party sites or from such third-party resources. Under no circumstances shall Peeradigm be responsible or liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, or special loss or other damage resulting from, caused by, or allegedly caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such content, products, or services made available on or through any third-party site or resource.
Any interactions, correspondence, transactions, or other dealings you have with any third parties found on or through our Sites are solely between you and the third party (including issues related to the content of third-party advertisements, payments, delivery of goods, warranties, privacy and data security, and the like). Peeradigm disclaims all liability in connection therewith.
You are also subject to the Terms of Service or Use of any third-party website.

Arbitration and Venue
Any controversy or dispute ("Dispute") you have arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be resolved by a single impartial arbitrator pursuant to proceedings administered by the American Arbitration Association under its rules for resolution of commercial disputes.

The courts of the state of Florida or the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida shall have exclusive jurisdiction and venue over: (A) any action concerning the enforcement of an arbitration award; or (B) if arbitration is not permitted by law, any Dispute you have arising out of or relating to this Agreement.

Waiver and Severability
Any failure by Peeradigm to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement or any of the Additional Terms at any time shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, such provision shall be enforced to the fullest extent of the law, and the other provisions of this Agreement or Additional Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
No Right of Survivorship or Transferability
Peeradigm may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement and the Additional Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you.
