Thank you for using Consensus to create vital links in healthcare and within your community. By accepting this Terms of Service (“TOS”) agreement or otherwise using Consensus or other components of the System (as defined below), you agree to these terms and conditions. If you are entering into this TOS as an individual, the terms “you”, “your” or “End User” refer to you. If you are entering into this TOS on behalf of an organization or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such organization or entity to this TOS, and the terms “you”, “your” or “End User” will refer to such organization or entity. This TOS is a legal agreement between you and Consensus Cloud Solutions and its subsidiaries, including J2 Cloud Services, LLC (“Company”, “we,” or “us”) and, among other things, outlines our relationship, the permitted use of our service and system (the “System”), including in your role as the health care provider. Your acceptance of this TOS is required prior to your use of the System.
The System is a service for healthcare organizations and you will be using it to communicate PHI. As a result, you will need to complete an Identity Proofing process using NIST level 3 criteria. Identity Proofing must be completed by your organization periodically and in the event your user account is disabled.
We may change or modify portions of this TOS upon notice to you. If we do so, we will notify you of any changes via our website www.consensus.com /terms-conditions/. By continuing to use the System after any changes, you are accepting such changes.
Disclaimers by the Company
The Company makes no representation or warranty regarding the availability through the System or of any particular participant in the System. At any time, participants in the System may be added to or deleted from the System, and such changes may occur without prior notice to End User. Company is not responsible for the accuracy of the content transmitted through the System, it is the responsibility of any treating physician or other health care provider or facility (not the responsibility of the Company) to verify all transmitted information through other means with each patient and/or the patient’s representatives before such information is relied upon or utilized in diagnosing or treating the patient. The Company is not a health plan, health care provider or prescriber. The Company does not and cannot independently verify or review the information transmitted through the System for accuracy or completeness. Pursuant to the foregoing, End User acknowledges that, neither the Company nor any participant provides any representations or warranties with respect to the accuracy or completeness of the transmitted information, and End User releases and holds harmless any person or entity providing information through the System from any liability, cause of action, or claim related to the completeness or lack thereof of the information. In addition, End User shall confirm the accuracy of the transmitted information with his/her/its patient prior to providing any medical services based thereon, and End User shall use his/her/its professional judgment in the provision of care. The System is not intended to serve as a replacement for appropriate written documentation. Use of the System is not a substitute for a health care provider’s standard practice or professional judgment. Any decision with regard to the appropriateness of treatment, or the validity or reliability of information, is the sole responsibility of a patient’s health care provider.
After accepting the TOS and completing the Identity Proofing process, you are granted a limited license to use the applicable components of the System based upon your authorized subscription level and tier. To the extent any software is distributed or provided to you for use on your premises or devices, such software will be deemed part of the “System” hereunder. Your use of the System is non-exclusive and does not permit you or any third party to modify the source code of the System or allow a third party to modify the source code of the System. The Company and its third-party partners and service providers may audit your use of the System for compliance with these terms at any time, upon reasonable notice. In the event that an audit reveals any use of the System by you other than in full compliance with the terms of this TOS, you shall reimburse the Company for all reasonable expenses related to such audit in addition to any other liabilities you may incur as a result of such non-compliance.
In order to improve the customer experience for our end users, the Company or its third party service providers may collect information about your organization during the registration process and about your usage of the System (for example, the device or other information related to the licensing and use of the System). The Company and any third party service providers will maintain such information as confidential, and will not use or disclose it, other than in connection with your use of the System and/or to improve customer experience as referenced above.
Unless you are obtaining a license to the System through a Company Partner (as described below), your use of the System is based upon the prepaid subscription you have chosen. You will be billed at your chosen period in advance, using the payment method you choose. If for some reason you do not renew or we are unable to collect payment from your payment method, your use of and access to the System may be suspended or terminated, in our sole discretion.
If you have been provided your license through an authorized reseller, sponsor or other partner of the Company (collectively, “Company Partner”), you are granted a limited license to use the System based upon the subscription level, and applicable integration experience and feature set the Company Partner has chosen for you or that you have agreed upon with the Company Partner, and you will be billed directly by the Company Partner in advance, using the payment method agreed to by the Company
and the Company Partner. If the Company Partner does not renew your subscription or the Company is unable to collect payment of the applicable license fee from the Company Partner, your use of and access to the System may be suspended or terminated, in our sole discretion, unless you and the Company separately agree on the terms for the continuation of your access to the System. For so long as your license to the System is obtained through a Company Partner, your right to use the System will be pursuant to the terms and conditions for such license between you and the Company Partner, which may supersede this TOS during that period of time, provided that usage of System, restrictions, disclaimers and limitations of liability below will continue to apply.
You may not directly or indirectly rent, lease, or sublicense the System or directly or indirectly, alter, merge, modify, adapt or translate the System, or decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or otherwise reduce the System to a human-perceivable form or attempt to discover the source code or structure, sequence and organization of the System, and last but not least, you shall not use the System to create derivative works or to develop any product having the same primary function as the System.
You may not use the System: (i) to infringe the intellectual property rights or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, of any third party; or (ii) in violation of any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation, including without limitation HIPAA. You may use the System only for the transmission of bona fide non-commercial and clinical information. You may not use the System to solicit business or to influence or attempt to influence for commercial purposes (through economic incentives or otherwise) any diagnostic or treatment-related decision of a health care provider by way of the System including, but not limited to, by means of advertising, instant messaging, and pop-up ads, but you may use the System as permitted above. The Company and its licensors will have sole discretion to determine the bona fide non-commercial and clinical nature of all messages.
Licenses to use the System are granted on a per location (physical address) basis and you agree not to share your license, subscription or other access to the System with other locations.
Ownership of the Company and Company Trademarks
The Company, its service providers, and our licensors retain all right, title and interest, including without limitation all ownership rights and intellectual property rights in and to the System. All rights not specifically granted in this TOS, including without limitation any and all registered and unregistered copyrights and trademarks, are reserved by the Company and/or its licensors. The System is protected by the copyright laws of the United States and international copyright treaties.
PHI, as defined in the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, you exchange using the System belongs solely and exclusively to you and is used for identification and creation of structured documents for interoperability and will not be altered by the Company or disclosed to unauthorized third parties. After the termination of your subscription, the PHI will be deleted and destroyed according to normal operating procedures and will not be retained in any form by the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that the Company may de-identify any PHI and use such de-identified information for any lawful purpose.
End users must have in place and maintain all appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the privacy of Private Information (as defined below) and against the destruction, loss, or alteration of the data transmitted through the System that are no less rigorous than those maintained by End User for its own information of a similar nature, but no less than reasonable safeguards. These safeguards should also protect the Private Information from any intentional or unintentional use or disclosure that is in violation of any applicable laws, and limit incidental uses or disclosures made pursuant to otherwise permitted or required disclosures. “Private Information” means: (i) PHI, (ii) Nonpublic Personal Financial Information and, as applicable, Nonpublic Personal Health Information, as defined by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act; or (iii) any data or information that: (1) relates to an individual, and (2) identifies or can reasonably be believed to form the basis for identifying an individual (such as, but not limited to, an individual’s name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, Social Security number, driver’s license number, financial account number, or any other unique identifier). End User agrees to provide the Company notice, without unreasonable delay, but no later than three (3) business days after determining that a Breach (as defined below) of data transmitted under this TOS has occurred. The notification shall include, to the extent possible, sufficient information for the other Party to understand the nature of the Breach. End User shall supplement the information contained in the notification as it becomes available and shall cooperate with the Company and its applicable licensors and providers as necessary to resolve the Breach. “Breach” has the same meaning as defined in 45 C.F.R. § 164.402 and, therefore, is limited to a breach of “Unsecured PHI.” Unsecured PHI is protected health information that is not rendered unusable, unreadable or indecipherable to unauthorized individuals through use of technology or methodology specified by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service. At all times, End User will remain in compliance with Workforce Security provision of 45 CFR Part 164.308(a)(3)(ii)(B).
The Company may make it possible for you to configure the System to connect to other services, connections, networks or remote systems outside the control of the Company (“Outside Services”). If you choose to connect to an Outside Service outside the control of Company, you accept all liability arising from the use of the connection, including but not limited to, the security and configuration of the connection and remote system, the use of data obtained from the Outside Service, and accuracy of data
transmitted to or from the Outside Service. You further agree that you will not use the System to connect to an Outside Service in a way that may violate the policies or rights of any organization or individual or cause harm to the Company, the System, partners, or other users of the System.
Additionally, when you accept this TOS you are representing that you have obtained and will obtain any and all necessary patient consents and authorizations required by applicable law to transmit, handle and access patient data, from third-party providers or otherwise. You are also agreeing to reasonably safeguard the Company and its third-party licensors/providers’ confidential information from any intentional or unintentional use or disclosure, and you will keep such information confidential and use such information only in accordance with the purposes contemplated by this TOS. You further agree to allow the Company and/or its third-party licensors/providers to access, inspect, and audit records related to the use of the System and the data and networks of such third-party licensors/providers.
The System may contain third-party software that requires notices and/or additional terms and conditions which are incorporated by reference into this TOS and you are accepting the additional terms and conditions of these third parties. Such third-party software notices and/or additional terms and conditions will be provided by the Company upon request.
The Company collects and analyzes data relating to the use and performance of the System and all of the supporting systems (“System Data”) and uses System Data during and after the term of your subscription. System Data is used to improve and enhance the systems and for other development, diagnostic and corrective purposes in connection with the systems. The Company may also disclose System Data in aggregate and anonymized format. System Data will never include PHI.
If you are obtaining access to the System directly from the Company (and not a Company Partner), then the Company warrants that, when used with a recommended hardware configuration, the System will perform in substantial conformance with the documentation supplied with the System. Your exclusive remedy under the preceding limited warranty is to report the noncompliance to the Company, upon which the Company will use reasonable commercial efforts to correct the non- conformance so that the System substantially conforms to the foregoing warranty, or, if Company is not able to correct the non- conformance within thirty (30) days after receipt of your report, terminate your subscription and refund to you a pro rata portion of your subscription fee for the unearned portion of your subscription to the System. Any misuse, accident, abuse, modification or misapplication of the System will void the warranty above. THIS REMEDY IS THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AVAILABLE TO YOU FOR BREACH OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SYSTEM. IF YOU ARE OBTAINING ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM FROM OR THROUGH A COMPANY PARTNER, YOU MUST REPORT AND PROVIDE ANY WARRANTY CLAIMS DIRECTLY TO SUCH COMPANY PARTNER, AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO MAKE ANY WARRANTY CLAIM DIRECTLY AGAINST THE COMPANY. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED HEREIN, THE SYSTEM IS PROVIDED “AS IS”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. WE DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE INTEROPERABILITY OF THE SYSTEM WITH THIRD-PARTY SYSTEM OR DEVICES MAY BE DEPENDENT ON THE ACTIONS OF THIRD PARTIES THAT ARE BEYOND THE COMPANY’S CONTROL, AND FOR WHICH THE COMPANY ASSUMES NO LIABILITY. We will have no responsibility for any harm to your computer system, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the System. Some states do not allow the types of disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Limitation of Liability
