Our Services include listings and directories (“Directories”) to help you find physicians, healthcare professionals, lawyers, certified consultants or other professionals (collectively, “Professionals”). The Directories are provided for your convenience. The Directories are not comprehensive, but rather generally represent Professionals who use our Services and who have chosen to participate in the Directories.

Before obtaining services or treatment from any Professional listed in a Directory, you should take care to confirm the individual’s or company’s licensure and specialty certifications. The Professionals are solely responsible for the appropriateness and quality of the services they provide. Additionally, the Directories rely on information submitted by Professionals themselves. Unless Professionals provide us with current information, the Directory information may not be timely or accurate. You should confirm such information before obtaining services or treatment from a Professional.
Our Services may also include advertisements or promotional messages from us or sponsored by third parties (collectively, “Ads”). The manufacturers, services providers, distributors and resellers of the products and services identified in the Ads are solely responsible for the accuracy of their Ads and the suitability, efficacy, safety and quality of such products or services. An Ad does not in any way constitute or imply Atticus Billing’s recommendation or endorsement of a product or service.

Furthermore, Atticus Billing is not responsible for the quality or delivery of the products or services offered, accessed, obtained by or advertised at such linked services. Atticus Billing will under no circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or special loss or other damage, whether arising from negligence, breach of contract, defamation, infringement of copyright or other intellectual property rights, caused by the exhibition, distribution or exploitation of any information or content contained within these third-party linked services. Any activities you engage in connection with any of the same are subject to the privacy and other policies, terms and conditions of use and/or sale, and rules issued by the operator of the linked services. Atticus Billing disclaims all liability in connection therewith. We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable license to create hyperlinks to the Services, so long as: (a) the links only incorporate text, and do not use any Trademarks, (b) the links and the content on your website do not suggest any affiliation with Atticus Billing or cause any other confusion, and (c) the links and the content on your website do not portray Atticus Billing or its products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive matter, and do not contain content that is unlawful, offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, threatening, harassing, or abusive, or that violate any right of any third party or are otherwise objectionable to Atticus Billing.

Our failure at any time to require performance by you of any provision of these Terms shall in no way affect our right to enforce such provision, nor shall the waiver of any breach by you of any provision herein constitute a waiver of any succeeding breach or the provision itself.
For the purpose of these Terms, “you” means the individual user of our Services and visitors to our Websites. If your access or use of our Services is, directly or indirectly, on behalf of one or more third parties (such as, without limitation, your employer or client, or your employer’s client, if your employer has been engaged to access our Services (any such employer, client or other third party, a “Principal”)), then “you” also refers to such Principal. If you are using our Services on behalf of a Principal, (a) you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind, and have bound, such Principal to these Terms; and (b) you agree to be jointly and severally liable for any breach of these Terms by Principal. See also the Atticus Billing User Portal Agreement.
In addition, the words “include,” “includes” and “including” shall be deemed to be followed by the phrase “without limitation.” The word “will” shall be construed to have the same meaning and effect as the word “shall.” The word “or” shall be construed to have the same meaning and effect as “and/or.” The words “herein,” “hereof” and “hereunder,” and words of similar import, shall be construed to refer to these Terms. The headings used in these Terms are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in construing or interpreting these Terms. These Terms, together with your User Agreement(s), constitute the entire agreement between you and Atticus Billing regarding any services accessed via the Atticus Billing Website or Atticus Billing Portal, and supersede all previous communications, representations, or understandings, either oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof; provided, however, (a) in the event of an express conflict between any specific provision included in these Terms and the express provision in the User Agreement, the provision set forth in User Agreement shall prevail, and (b) these Terms shall cover all rights, obligations, terms and conditions not expressly addressed in such User Agreement.
4.14 Electronic Contracting
Your use of our Services includes the ability to enter into agreements and/or to make transactions electronically. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS CONSTITUTE YOUR AGREEMENT AND INTENT TO BE BOUND BY SUCH AGREEMENTS AND TRANSACTIONS. YOUR AGREEMENT AND INTENT TO BE BOUND BY ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS APPLIES TO ALL RECORDS RELATING TO ALL TRANSACTIONS YOU ENTER INTO ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING NOTICES OF CANCELLATION, POLICIES, CONTRACTS, AND APPLICATIONS.
Atticus Billing may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of Atticus Billing.
These Terms (or if applicable Additional Terms), in the form posted at the time of your use of the applicable services to which it applies, shall govern such use (including transactions entered during such use). AS OUR SERVICES EVOLVE, THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH WE OFFER THE SERVICES MAY PROSPECTIVELY BE MODIFIED AND WE MAY CEASE OFFERING THE SERVICE UNDER THE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR WHICH THEY WERE PREVIOUSLY OFFERED. Atticus Billing reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time and from time to time, and without prior notice, by posting amended Terms on the Atticus Billing Website or notify you via email. ACCORDINGLY, EACH TIME YOU SIGN IN TO OR OTHERWISE USE THE SERVICES YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW AGREEMENT WITH US ON THE THEN APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY NOTIFY YOU OF OTHER TERMS BY POSTING THEM ON THE SERVICES (OR IN ANY OTHER REASONABLE MANNER OF NOTICE WHICH WE ELECT), AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AFTER SUCH NOTICE CONSTITUTES YOUR GOING FORWARD AGREEMENT TO THE OTHER TERMS FOR YOUR NEW USE AND TRANSACTIONS. Therefore, you should review the posted terms of service and any applicable Additional Terms each time you use the Services (at least prior to each transaction or submission). The Additional Terms will be effective as to new use and transactions as of the time that we post them, or such later date as may be specified in them or in other notice to you. However, the Terms (and any applicable Additional Terms) that applied when you previously used the Services will continue to apply to such prior use (i.e., changes and additions are prospective only) unless mutually agreed. In the event any notice to you of new, revised or additional terms is determined by a tribunal to be insufficient, the prior agreement shall continue until sufficient notice to establish a new agreement occurs. You should frequently check the home page of the Services and the email you associated with your account for notices, and you agree that the means set forth in these Terms are all reasonable manners of providing you with notice. You can reject any new, revised or Additional Terms by discontinuing use of the Services and related services. The most current version of the Terms shall govern and supersede all previous versions.
