PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY.
1. CHANGES TO THESE TERMS AND THE SITE
We may change these Terms at any time, and all such changes are effective immediately upon notice, which we may give by any means, including, but not limited to, by posting a revised version of these Terms or other notice on the Site. You should view these Terms often to stay informed of changes that may affect you. Your use of the Site constitutes your continuing agreement to be bound by these Terms, as they are amended from time to time. We expressly reserve the right to make any changes that we deem appropriate from time to time to the Site or to any information, text, data, databases, graphics, images, sound recordings, video material, audio clips, logos, software, features, services, and other materials within the Site (all such materials, and any compilation, collection, or arrangement thereof, the “Content”).
2. LICENSE TO ACCESS AND USE THE SITE, INCLUDING TRAINING PROGRAM ACCESS
2.1 YOU MAY ACCESS AND USE THIS SITE ONLY IF YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF 18, AND ONLY FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE (OR, IF ACCESSING THE SITE ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY, ONLY YOUR COMPANY’S OWN INTERNAL USE). Any other access to or use of the Site or the Content constitutes a violation of these Terms and may violate applicable copyright, trademark, or other laws. We make no representation that the Site or Content is appropriate or available for use in locations other than the United States. If you choose to access this Site from locations other than in the United States, you do so at your own initiative, at your own risk, and are responsible for complying with applicable local laws. Certain features of the website, such as access to the TRAINING PROGRAMS, are available only upon registration by the holisticheartcenter.com administrator.
HHCA does not provide medical advice or care. Nor does HHCA deliver any Providers' services itself. We simply offer an online communication platform for Providers and their patients to connect via the Site through the use of synchronous and asynchronous telecommunications technologies. The Site facilitates communication between patients and Providers.
Providers deliver clinical services via the HHCA platform to their patients. Providers are not contracted or employed by HHCA. The Providers, and not HHCA, are solely responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you. The Providers are independent of HHCA and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from HHCA. Your interactions with the providers via the Site are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither HHCA, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Site or Service, nor for any information obtained on the Site.
HHCA does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
HHCA does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the Site or Service. You will be provided with available Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Site. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your own particular Provider.
The content of the Site and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by HHCA. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. All information provided by HHCA, or in connection with any communications supported by HHCA, is intended to be for general information purposes only, and is in no way intended to create a provider-patient relationship as defined by state or federal law. While HHCA facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Providers, HHCA does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the Provider you select.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
HHCA’s Site and Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Site. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.
HHCA website does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on our Website. Reliance on any information provided by HHCA or others appearing on the Website at the invitation of HHCA is solely at your own risk.
HHCA does not endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product. If a Provider prescribes a medication or product, he/she must limit supply based upon state regulations and will only prescribe a medication or product as determined in his/her own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written. Providers do not prescribe DEA controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.
By using the Site and Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with telehealth services. These include but are not limited to the following: information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Provider; delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment; a lack of access to your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your health information.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from a Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription.
HHCA fully honors patient freedom of choice and, if you receive a prescription for a medication, you always have the option to instruct the Provider to transmit that prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
HHCA is not a health insurance company, the Site and Services are not insurance products, and the amounts you pay to HHCA or Providers are not insurance premiums. If you desire any type of health or other insurance, you will need to purchase such insurance separately.
Please note that the use of HHCA Website does NOT constitute a patient-physician relationship. The Website does not allow for detailed history taking, physical examination, ancillary testing or prescription of medications and supplies. HHCA authorizes visitors and registered users to view the materials on the Website solely for their personal, noncommercial use. Special rules for the use of certain tools and services accessible on the HHCA Website may be included elsewhere within the Website and are incorporated into these Terms and Conditions by reference.

17. PROVIDER SUPPLEMENTAL AGREEMENTS
To be a healthcare provider using the Site (“Provider” or “you”) you must be a physician or other healthcare professional duly licensed/registered under applicable state law, as required, and must agree to comply with all laws, professional licensing board rules and other rules and regulations applicable to you as a Provider or otherwise. Your relationship with the HHCA users (including your patients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient or provider-patient relationship with HHCA. HHCA does not practice medicine and offers no medical or healthcare services. As set forth more fully below, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices and other interactions with patients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Provider is solely responsible for all billings and collections from patients and other consumers, and HHCA shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.
HHCA does not provide any medical advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or medical or healthcare issues associated with Provider, goods or services or Products offered by Provider, including but not limited any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations. Provider should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and must not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining Provider’s compliance obligations under law. Provider and HHCA agree that HHCA is not providing, to the Site users or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice.
Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical or healthcare practice. While software products such as the Site and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider can offer patients, many factors, including the provider-patient relationship, can affect a patient outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Site and Services, and the provision of medical or healthcare services to Provider’s patients. In this regard, Provider releases HHCA and waives any and all potential claims against HHCA as a result of Provider’s use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s patients.
As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold HHCA harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any patient of Provider, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a patient, which is brought against HHCA, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider’s use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain HHCA’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of HHCA or defect in the Site or Services. HHCA will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement.
If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images or other materials to us or our Site (“Provider Content”) or provide any Provider Content to patients or other consumers, you agree not to provide any Provider Content that (1) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (2) violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (3) contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component. Provider is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary agreements and consents from, and providing all required notices to, patients and other consumers. You agree not to contact other users through unsolicited e-mail, telephone calls, mailings or any other method of communication. You represent and warrant to HHCA that you have the legal right and authorization to upload all Provider Content at the Site. HHCA shall have a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable right and license to use the Provider Content however HHCA desires, including without limitation, to copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such Provider Content and/or incorporate such Provider Content into any form, medium or technology throughout the world. HHCA is and shall be under no obligation (1) to maintain any Provider Content in confidence; (2) to pay to you any compensation for any Provider Content; or (3) to respond to any Provider Content.
HHCA does not regularly review Provider Content, but does reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Provider Content submitted to the Site. You grant HHCA the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Provider Content. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Provider Content. You are and shall remain solely responsible for the content of any Provider Content you post to the Site or provide to patients or other consumers.
