MarTech.Health Directory Terms of Use

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

This website, https://martech.health/, (the “Site”) provides, subject to these terms of use (“TOU”), a collection of online resources, including information about vendors in the healthcare marketing technology industry. By accessing or otherwise using the Site in any way, you have agreed to comply with the TOU and have entered into a legally binding contract with Ed Bennett, LLC, a Maryland limited liability company (“MarTech.Health Directory”). In addition, when using any particular feature of the Site, you agree to abide by any applicable posted guidelines for the particular feature, which may change from time to time. Should you object to any term or condition of the TOU, any guidelines, or any subsequent modifications thereto, or become dissatisfied with the Site in any way, your only recourse is to immediately discontinue use of the Site.

“You” and “your” refers to you, a user of the Site. A “user” is any individual, entity, or group that accesses, browses, crawls, scrapes, or otherwise uses the Site, such as registered vendors, registered reviewers, and other users. “We,” “us,” and “our” refer to MarTech.Health Directory.

2. GENERAL OPERATION OF THE SITE

This Site allows registered healthcare marketing technology vendors to post information about their businesses, registered reviewers to post reviews and ratings about the vendors, and all users to view the information, reviews, and ratings. Before a vendor’s information is published publicly on the Site, we verify the vendor by determining that there is evidence that the vendor has actually done business with healthcare organizations. We permit display of ratings and reviews published by anonymous reviewers, and, subject to a court order, we will not disclose any information about reviewers who have chosen to publish anonymously. 

Reviewers shall not provide false information about themselves when registering with the Site and shall not post false reviews or ratings about the vendors to the Site. Vendors acknowledge that they may receive positive or negative reviews and ratings of their businesses. All users acknowledge that we have no obligation to screen, monitor, approve, or review any ratings or reviews of vendors or other information about vendors. 

We do not adjudicate or otherwise attempt to resolve disputes between vendors and reviewers. As a vendor, if you disagree with a review or rating, you may post a response to the review or rating on the Site or remove your company from the Site as a vendor. 

We do not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information on the Site, and we neither adopt nor endorse nor are responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made on the Site. Under no circumstances will we be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from anyone's reliance on information posted on the Site. 

3. MODIFICATIONS TO THIS AGREEMENT

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify or otherwise alter the TOU at any time. Such modifications shall become effective immediately upon the posting thereof. You must review these TOU on a regular basis to keep apprised of any changes.

4. ELIGIBILITY FOR USE

MarTech.Health Directory reserves some parts of the Site exclusively for registered users who MarTech.Health Directory, in its sole discretion, deems acceptable. Although we attempt to limit the use of these parts of the Site to registered users, nothing herein shall create any right of action against MarTech.Health Directory for failing to adequately screen potential users or prevent use of the Site by users who are not registered users.

5. CONTENT

You understand that all messages, posts, comments, responses, reviews, ratings, files, images, photos, video, sounds, advertisements, or other materials (“Content”) posted on, transmitted through, or linked from the Site are the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated. More specifically, you are entirely responsible for each individual item of Content that you post, email, or otherwise make available via the Site. Likewise, if you request the assistance of MarTech.Health Directory to post content, or if you imply consent that we may post content on your behalf, either by written or oral means, or you fail to inform MarTech.Health Directory that content should be removed, you are equally responsible for the content. You waive any and all claims against MarTech.Health Directory related to the right of publicity in your image or likeness throughout the world by posting any information or pictures related to yourself on the Site. You understand that MarTech.Health Directory does not control, and is not responsible for Content made available through the Site, and that by using the Site, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent, inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise objectionable. 

When you post Content to the Site, you authorize and direct us to make such copies thereof as we deem necessary in order to facilitate the posting and storage of the Content on the Site. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, that you may not rely on said Content, and that under no circumstances will MarTech.Health Directory be liable in any way for any Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, or otherwise made available via the Site.
