 4. Ownership 

The Software is owned by us or our suppliers and is protected by United States copyright laws, international treaty provisions, and all other applicable laws.  Your license confers no title or ownership in the Software and is not a sale of any rights in the Software.  All ownership rights remain in us or our third party suppliers, as the case may be.  


 5. Other Software 

We may provide to you certain software which is specifically labeled as being provided by and/or owned by third parties (“Third Party Materials”).  You shall be licensing such ThirdParty Materials directly from the third party provider, including the right to use such Third Party Materials in connection with the Software.    

Certain of the Third Party Materials supplied by us for use with the Software are governed by open-source software license agreements supplied with such Third Party Materials, such as the GNU General Public License.  We make no claim of ownership of such open-source software, and such software is supplied solely in accordance with the license agreements accompanying such software.  Accordingly, the restrictions above under “Grant of License” concerning scope of use, ownership, modification, confidentiality and other provisions relating to the Software do not apply to such open-source software.  However, the disclaimer of warranty (but not the “Limited Warranty”) and limitations of liability below under “Limited Warranty” and “Limitation of Liability” do apply to Third Party Materials.  


  6. Limited Warranty 

We warrant that, for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of receipt of the Software, (a) the Software, if operated as directed, will substantially achieve the functionality described on the Website.  We do not warrant, however, that your use of the Software will be uninterrupted or that the operation of the Software will be error free or secure. You have relied on your own skill and judgment in determining that the Software sufficiently meets your requirements and in deciding to acquire the Software.  





As your exclusive remedy for any breach of the warranty relating to functionality of the Software, we will, at our expense, use commercially reasonable efforts to replace or repair any Software that fails to meet this limited warranty.  If we are unable, after using commercially reasonable efforts, to correct the failure of the Software to perform in accordance with the foregoing warranties, your sole and exclusive remedy shall be (in the case of Software) to return the Software, terminate your rights under this Agreement and receive a full refund of the payments actually received by us from you for the Software which is the subject of the warranty claim and (in the case of Services) to recover the fees paid to us for the deficient Services.  Our responsibility for malfunctions and defects in the Software is limited to repair, replacement or refund as set forth in this agreement.   


This limited warranty shall be void: if any modifications are made to the Software other than by us during the warranty period; if you violate the terms of this Agreement; if the Software is used on or in conjunction with hardware or software other than the unmodified version of hardware and software with which the software was designed to be used; if the warranty period has expired before you report your warranty claim; or, if you do not provide evidence satisfactory to us, when making your warranty claim, of the date you purchased a license to the Software.  


7. Limitation of Liability 

 In no circumstances will we be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages or any damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information or other pecuniary loss arising out of the use of or inability to use the Software even if so advised of the possibility of such a claim.   

Our maximum liability in any circumstances shall not exceed the amount paid by you for the Software and Services.   

Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.   


 8. Price and Payment 

Prices are subject to increase by us based on our prices in effect at the time of delivery. Unless otherwise expressly agreed to by us in writing, the terms of payment are contained in your invoice. Should you refuse to pay for the Software and we are forced to take action to collect payment, you are liable to us for our costs in collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.

You acknowledge that the Software and the media are subject to export controls under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations and the export regulations of other countries.

 11. Term 

Your license under this Agreement is effective until terminated in accordance with this Paragraph.  We may terminate this Agreement immediately if you breach any of the provisions of this Agreement.  Upon termination of your license, you must discontinue all use of the Software, and immediately destroy the Software together with all copies.  The provisions of this Agreement (other than your license to use the Software) shall survive the termination of the license, or the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

The parties understand and agree that Confidential Information may include confidential information of patients, insurers, or other persons or entities (“Patient Data”).

  13. General 

The validity, construction and performance of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Connecticut, USA applicable to contracts executed in and performed entirely within such Commonwealth, without reference to any choice of law principles of such Commonwealth.  The application to this Agreement of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly excluded. No amendment, modification or change to this Agreement, or any waiver of any right or remedy under this Agreement, will be valid unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the party to be bound. If any provision of this Agreement conflicts with the law under which this Agreement is to be construed or if any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intentions of the parties in accordance with the applicable law.  The remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected thereby, and each of those provisions will be valid and enforceable to the full extent permitted by law.  In the event that either party is unable to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement because of an event wholly beyond its control, including but not limited to, fire, natural disaster and action or decree of a governmental body, the party who has been so affected shall immediately give written notice to the other party and use reasonable efforts to resume performance. In connection with any dispute under this Agreement, if requested by us, you agree to submit to arbitration in a forum selected by us within the Commonwealth of Connecticut for the resolution of any disputes, hereunder; provided, this does not limit our right to obtain injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties, superseding all prior agreements and understandings as to the subject matter hereof, notwithstanding any oral representations or statements to the contrary heretofore made.
