Client and its Authorized Users will not: (a) access or use the Platform or its Content (as defined below) in order to design, create or build a service or product that is competitive with the Platform, or which uses ideas, features or functions that are similar to the Platform; (b) license, sublicense, sell, resell, resyndicate, transfer, assign, distribute or otherwise commercially exploit, make available to, or share with any third party, who is not an Authorized User under these Terms of Use, the Platform or any of the included Content or; (c) modify or make derivative works based upon the Platform or any Content, or directly or indirectly disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer, or otherwise work around the technical limitations in the Platform or any portion thereof. For avoidance of doubt, the parties agree that unless any Content is specifically marked within the Platform as available for downloading and printing (“Downloadable Content”), Client and its Authorized Users will not attempt to download, record, reproduce, or otherwise access such Content outside of Service Provider’s hosted environment.

Client will be responsible for controlling the access and use of the Platform by its Authorized Users and for notifying its Authorized Users of the rights and restrictions set forth in these Terms of Use and any other supplement notices as necessary.  Each Authorized User will be required to create an account with a unique user name and password and limited related contact information, (collectively, “User Account Information”) and to log into that account each time he or she wishes to access the Platform. Such User Account Information should be treated as confidential.  Client and its Authorized Users will immediately notify Service Provider if any unauthorized use is discovered.

To the extent the Platform includes discussion or message boards, forums, networking opportunities, and other community-focused features which allow users to post, publish, or share messages and specific Content with other users of the Platform, Client is fully responsible for any User Contributions that Client or if applicable, its Authorized Users may share through the Platform or otherwise send to other Platform users, including the legality, reliability, accuracy and appropriateness of such User Contributions.  For purposes of this Paragraph, “User Contributions” means any messages or other content shared by Client or any Authorized Users other than Service Provider’s proprietary Content.  Unless expressly authorized by Service Provider, Client and its Authorized Users shall not share or provide access to any external content or materials, nor shall Client and its Authorized Users post, submit, or link to any User Contributions that infringe, misappropriate, or violate the rights of any third party or any applicable law, or that is defamatory, obscene, indecent, harassing, threatening, abusive, inflammatory, or fraudulent, purposely false or misleading, or otherwise harmful.  Service Provider does not approve, control, or endorse Client’s or anyone else’s User Contributions, and has no obligation to do so. However, Service Provider reserves the right (but assumes no obligation) to remove or modify User Contributions for any reason or no reason, at Service Provider’s sole discretion, including User Contributions that, in Service Provider’s sole discretion, violates these Terms of Use.

Client acknowledges that any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Platform or any Content would cause Service Provider irreparable harm, and therefore, in addition to any other remedy available in law, Service Provider would be entitled to immediate injunctive relief, without showing any actual damages sustained, to prevent such disclosure or unauthorized use.  Service Provider shall have no obligation to post a bond or other security in connection with obtaining an injunction, specific performance, or other relief.

4. Suspension of Access to Platform. Service Provider may suspend Client’s access to the Platform at any time (a) in order to prevent damage to, or degradation of, Service Provider’s network integrity; (b) if Client has failed to pay any amounts that are more than thirty (30) days past due and such failure continues without a cure for ten (10) days after notice from Service Provider; or (c) Client has breached these Terms of Use in a way that affects Service Provider’s provision of the Platform or infringes on Service Provider’s intellectual property rights. If suspended, Service Provider will promptly restore use of the Platform to the Client after the event giving rise to the suspension has been resolved to Service Provider’s reasonable satisfaction.  Any accounts that are restored after suspension due to Client’s failure to pay or breach may be subject to any then-current reactivation fees.

5. Service Provider Data. Client agrees that Service Provider may (a) collect data and metrics arising out of Client’s and its Authorized Users’ use of the Platform, and (b) aggregate and analyze any metrics and data so collected (collectively, the “Service Provider Data”).  Service Provider agrees that it shall not use the Service Provider Data in a way that identifies Client or any Authorized User as the source of any data included in the Service Provider Data. Provided Service Provider complies with the immediately preceding sentence, Client agrees that the Service Provider Data does not constitute the Confidential Information of Client and that Service Provider may provide the Service Provider Data to third parties.  Client agrees that Service Provider may use, reproduce, distribute and prepare derivative works from the Client Content solely as incorporated in the Service Provider Data.

6. Intellectual Property.  The Platform, Content, Service Provider Data, and any modifications, configurations, enhancements, or derivative works to any of the foregoing (including all intellectual property rights in or to any of the foregoing), are and shall remain the exclusive property of Service Provider and its licensors.  No licenses or rights are granted to Client except for the limited rights expressly granted in these Terms of Use.

All Content is protected by United States and international laws regarding copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and other proprietary rights.  Client and its Authorized Users will not remove any notices or legends that appear in the Platform or any Content, that either serve to identify Service Provider or its licensors as the owner, or that provide notice of the confidential and/or proprietary nature of such materials, and/or their contents, including without limitation copyright notices, trademark symbols and notices, and notices that such materials are “confidential” or “proprietary.”  The obligation of Client and its Authorized Users not to remove such notices shall apply in all circumstances, including without limitation when Client copies or distributes materials as permitted by these Terms of Use.

Service Provider may, in its sole discretion, change, limit, or discontinue any particular Content that is part of the Platform.  

7. Privacy. In using the Platform, Client and its Authorized Users will be subject to Service Provider’s Privacy Policy, located at: Client and its Authorized Users agree not to submit, share, upload, or otherwise process within the Platform personal information or personal data including Protected Health Information (“PHI”) (as the terms are defined and regulated by applicable law), with the exception of User Account Information, which is used for login, identification, credentialing, and tracking of credits.  To the extent applicable, Client and its Authorized Users will also be subject to the Huron Virtual Events Privacy Terms, located at:

8. Interactive Forums and Games. Authorized Users may have access to or be included in games (for example, benchmarking and leaderboards) at Client’s choice, the availability and configuration of which will be set by Client and Service Provider upon Client’s approval. If an Authorized User has questions or concerns about the interactive forums or games features, they should first contact the internal engagement leader within their own organization who established the use of the interactive features on the Platform. When configured by the Client, the Client and its Authorized Users’ name and statistics in these features may be benchmarked and shared internally within the Client’s organization, or at the Client’s choice, with other similar Clients of Service Provider.

9. Fees. Fees for access during the initial License Term will be set forth in the Services Agreement.  Unless otherwise agreed upon by Service Provider in the Services Agreement, such fees are due and payable within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice by Client. In the event the License Term automatically renews under Paragraph 13 below, the access fees due for each such renewal License Term will be based on Service Provider’s then-current market rates, as communicated to Client at least 120 days prior to the expiration of its then-current License Term.  Invoiced amounts that are past due will be subject to a monthly charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate permitted by the law, whichever is less.  As a general matter, all fees and charges for use of the Platform are non-refundable and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in advance, will be due and payable at the beginning of each annual License Term.

10. Taxes.  Client will pay all applicable sales, use, excise, value added, services, consumption and other taxes and duties associated with Client’s receipt of the Platforms and Content, excluding taxes on Service Provider’s income generally.  Client will provide Service Provider with a copy of Client’s certificate of tax exemption, if applicable.

If Client is required by the laws of any foreign tax jurisdiction to withhold income or profits taxes from Service Provider’s payment, then the amount payable by Client upon which the withholding is based shall be paid to Service Provider net of such withholding.  Client shall pay any such withholding to the applicable tax authority.  However, if after 120 days of the withholding, Client does not provide Service Provider with official tax certificates documenting remittance of the taxes, Client shall pay to Service Provider an amount equal to such withholding.  The tax certificates shall be in a form sufficient to document qualification of the taxes for the foreign tax credit allowable against Service Provider’s corporation income tax.  

11. Equipment and Technical Support.  The parties acknowledge and agree that the Platform is an online-hosted service.  Client will be responsible for providing its Authorized Users with the appropriate equipment and Internet access needed to use the Platform. Service Provider will be responsible for providing commercially reasonable maintenance to and technical support for the Platform during normal business hours.

12. Continuing Education (if Applicable).  At this time, Service Provider is jointly accredited to provide continuing education by the Joint AccreditationTM for Interprofessional Continuing Education, a collaboration of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).   Authorized Users who are members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team, including physicians, advance practice providers, nursing professionals, and pharmacy professionals, within the United States of America may have the opportunity to earn Continuing Education (“CE”) credits through completion of designated educational courses included within the Platform and associated CE requirements.  The number of CE credits to be provided may vary based on courses and individual learner completion. Authorized Users must claim any earned Continuing Education credits through the Platform prior to the expiration or termination of the agreed-upon access period.  

13. License Term; Termination.  The length of the initial License Term will be specified in the Services Agreement.  Unless otherwise specified in the Services Agreement, the License Term will automatically renew for successive License Terms of one (1) year each in accordance with these Terms of Use, unless either party gives written notice to the other of its intention not to renew at least 90 days prior to expiration of the then-current License Term; provided, that Service Provider must notify Client of any changes to the amount of the annual access fee, or Client’s permitted payment schedule (if different than the standard described in Paragraph 9), at least 30 days prior to the notice period for termination (i.e., at least 120 days prior to the expiration of the then-current access period) in order for such changes to apply to the next License Term.

The License Term will continue to automatically renew until terminated in accordance with this Paragraph 13. Upon termination of the License Term under this Paragraph 13, Client and its Authorized Users will immediately cease use of the Platform; provided, however, that Client and its Authorized Users may retain copies of and continue to use any Downloadable Content in accordance with the Use Restrictions set forth in these Terms of Use, which will survive termination of the License Term and continue to apply for so long as such Downloadable Content is retained.
