Medprocomp.com, Medical Provider Compliance, LLC, and all of our affiliated companies respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users, account holders and content partners to do the same. The unauthorized reproduction, copying, distribution, modification, public display or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement of the copyright owner’s rights. As a condition to your use of this Web Site, you agree not to use the Web Site to infringe the intellectual property rights of others in any way. We will terminate the accounts of any account holders, and block access to our Web Site of any users who are repeat infringers of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. We reserve the right to take these actions at any time, in our sole discretion, with or without notice, and without any liability to the account holder who is terminated or to the user whose access is blocked.
The Company’s Liability
Medprocomp.com is a functional venue. This Web Site acts as a functional venue for business organizations to administer compliance programs and company policies and procedures, and to create, maintain and readily access the business organization’s history of all such activities. The Company is not involved in the actual transactions of its customers and users. As a result, the Company has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the informational content used in such activities, or the truth or accuracy of such information. In addition, note that there are risks to conducting such activities in an online manner by the use of this or any Web Site, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Web Site.
Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, the Company cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on the Web Site, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release the Company (and our agents, managers, employees and owners) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code d1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
We are under no legal obligation to, and generally do not, control or attempt to control the information provided by other users which may be made available through the Web Site. By its very nature, other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases may be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that you will use the reasonable caution of an ordinary person and common sense when using this Web Site.
The Web Site Content may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. The Company makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the Web Site Content. The use of the Web Site and the Web Site Content is at your own risk. Changes are periodically made to the Web Site and Web Site Content, and may be made at any time with or without notice.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any material placed by you on the Web Site.
THE COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE WEB SITE WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE OR THAT THE WEB SITE AND ITS SERVER(S) ARE FREE OF COMPUTER VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL MECHANISMS. IF YOUR USE OF THE WEB SITE OR THE WEB SITE CONTENT RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, THE COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COSTS.
THE WEB SITE AND WEB SITE CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. THE COMPANY, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE COMPANY, ITS SUPPLIERS, OR ANY THIRD PARTIES MENTIONED ON THE WEB SITE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEB SITE AND THE WEB SITE CONTENT, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE COMPANY IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Limitation of Liability
THE COMPANY’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE WEB SITE OR YOUR USE OF THE WEB SITE CONTENT, REGARDLESS OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE), WILL NOT EXCEED $100.

The Company requires a credit card be supplied at initial sign-up, and that that credit card be valid for charges calculated and transacted monthly. The Company transacts all such payments usually within the first week of each month. Notice of an expired or limit-exceeded credit card will be provided by the primary email address maintained by the Company for the registered user, and the registered user’s access to the Web Site will be thereafter limited to the credit card payment update function of the Web Site until rectified. A registered user’s failure to rectify the situation and make payment for the full amount due within one month may result in the registered user’s materials and history of activities on the Web Site being deleted.
