7. Limited liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL BOOKMETODAY, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS, PARTNERS OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR: (I) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, UNFORESEEABLE, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; (II) ANY DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF EARNINGS OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, EVEN IF BOOKMETODAY HAS BEEN ADVISED OR WARNED BY YOU, CUSTOMER OR END USER OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; (III) COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OR SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; (IV) LOSS OF DATA OR OTHER CUSTOMER CONTENT, END USER DATA OR CARDHOLDER DATA, RESULTING FROM DELAYS, NON-DELIVERIES, MISDELIVERIES, SECURITY BREACHES TO, SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS TO, OR ERRORS OR OMISSIONS RESPECTING THE SOFTWARE SERVICE OR THE OPERATION OF BOOKMETODAY OR ITS LICENSOR' NETWORKS; OR (V) LOSSES OR LIABILITIES DUE IN WHOLE OR IN PART TO INADVERTENT, PREMATURE OR UNAUTHORIZED RELEASE OR DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION BY YOU, CUSTOMER VIA BOOKMETODAY OR ITS LICENSORS' NETWORKS. THE TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF BOOKMETODAY TOGETHER WITH ITS SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS, PARTNERS AND AFFILIATES TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTIES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SOFTWARE SERVICE IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT OF FEES YOU PAY AS IT PERTAINS TO YOUR LOCATION ONLY, TO BOOKMETODAY IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. The foregoing limitations will apply even if BookMeToday has been notified of the possibility of such damages and notwithstanding the failure of the essential purpose of any limited remedy.

You agree to indemnify and hold BookMeToday (including its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, and employees, contractors, sub-contractors, Licensors, partners and affiliates) harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorney's fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach or alleged breach of this Agreement or the documents it incorporates by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party (including without limitation any negligent, willful, tortious or illegal conduct by you affecting a third party).
This Agreement will be in force throughout the Term beginning on the Subscription Start Date. This Agreement will AUTOMATICALLY RENEW each 30 day cycle on the anniversary of the Subscription Start Date (“Renewal Date”). If you choose not to renew, you must notify BookMeToday in writing at least 30 days prior to the Renewal Date, in which case, you will continue to have access to the Software Service and be billed until the end of the then current term. All month-to-month Software Service plans require 30 days written notice to BookMeToday prior to the date of cancellation, and you will continue to be billed for the Software Service until such time that is 30 days from the date that written notice is provided. All Software Service plans or subscriptions that are not on a month-to-month basis require 30 days written notice as well as a cancellation fee being the lower of the aggregate amount of the payments due as if the Software Service plan had continued until the end of the then current term or the aggregate of the discounted amount applied to the payments made or billed during the then current term. The discounted amount is the difference between the Subscription Fee billed or paid by you or paid by the licensee responsible for paying and the Regular Subscription Fee normally charged for your Software Service plan. Should your cancellation date fall during a subscription period or month the full monthly subscription fee will be charged or billed, no partial subscription fees will apply and no partial subscription credits will be granted for any cancellation fees or fees in lieu of cancellation notice. No cancellation fees will apply so long as written cancellation notice is provided within the first 30 days of the term for new subscription plans 12 months or greater (this does not apply to any renewal period). Otherwise our standard policies and conditions apply.
Any breach of your payment obligations or unauthorized use of the BookMeToday Technology, Content or Software Service will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. BookMeToday, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account or use of the Software Service if you breach or otherwise fail to comply with this Agreement. In addition to any other rights granted to BookMeToday herein, BookMeToday reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Software Service if your account becomes delinquent, or otherwise engage in fraudulent or unlawful activities. In addition, BookMeToday may terminate a free or basic account at any time in its sole discretion. You agree and acknowledge that BookMeToday has no obligation to retain the Customer Data, and may delete such Customer Data on termination or if you have materially breached this Agreement, including but not limited to failure to pay Software Service fees, and such breach has not been cured within 15 days of notice of such breach. In addition, BookMeToday may terminate this Agreement in the event that you request a refund pursuant to Section 11 in three consecutive months. BookMeToday will have no liability for any suspension or termination of your account in accordance with this paragraph.
11. Billing & Pricing
Pricing for the subscribed Software Services (“Subscription Fees”) are set forth on our website at https://www.BookMeToday.com/home/price.html (or such other URL as specified by BookMeToday), and may be updated by BookMeToday from time to time, or as otherwise stated in the Software Licensing Agreement. You agree to pay BookMeToday the Subscription Fees and any other applicable fees stated in your Software Licensing Agreement. All payment obligations under this Agreement are non-cancelable and all fees paid are non-refundable. Unless otherwise stated in a Software Licensing Agreement, fees must be paid in advance of each billing period. BookMeToday charges and collects in advance for use of the Software Service. No refunds will be provided for fees billed to you or that have been paid unless you were billed or a payment was processed in error. You will be billed your monthly fee on the date you start or are given access to your Software Service for the first month of Software Service and the monthly Subscription Fee thereafter. BookMeToday will automatically renew as per Section 8, and bill your credit card/bank account or other form of payment or issue an invoice to you every month for monthly fees. The renewal charge will be equal to the then-current license fee in effect at the time of renewal. These fees are subject to change from time to time, at any time, without notice. It is your responsibility to provide BookMeToday with any changes in your payment details such as updating your credit card, or any changes to your banking information. Should your primary form of payment be returned as incomplete, rejected or cancelled we will immediately charge or debit your secondary form of payment (credit card/bank account or other) together with any fees or additional charges incurred because of the failure to complete the processing through your primary form of payment. Your secondary form of payment will be used thereafter on an going forward basis without notice to you, until you provide BookMeToday with updated billing information regarding your primary form of payment.
Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis, including but not limited to:
Unless otherwise stated, our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including but not limited to value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any local, state, provincial, federal or foreign jurisdiction (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your purchases or use of BookMeToday. If BookMeToday has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which you are responsible under this paragraph, the appropriate amount shall be invoiced to and paid by you, unless you provide BookMeToday with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, BookMeToday is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
11.2 SMS Text Messages

13. Representations & warranties
Each party represents and warrants that it has the power and authority to enter into this Agreement.

You represent and warrant that You have not falsely identified itself or its corporate entity nor provided any false information to gain access to the Software Service and that all Bank Card and other billing information that you have provided is correct. THE SOFTWARE SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”. EXCEPT AS EXPLICITLY SET FORTH ABOVE, BOOKMETODAY IS NOT PROVIDING ANY WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE SOFTWARE SERVICE, CONTENT OR TECHNOLOGY, AND BOOKMETODAY AND ITS LICENSORS, DISTRIBUTORS, AND PARTNERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WITH REGARD TO THE SOFTWARE SERVICE, CONTENT AND TECHNOLOGY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS, FREEDOM FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CODE, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

14. Email compliance
BookMeToday has worked to achieve email compliance. You agree to comply with all elements of CAN-SPAM and safe sender email practices. This includes but not limited to including unsubscribe links, your full contact information in all correspondence, and not releasing private and/or confidential information. You may only use email services for those clients with which you have an existing business relationship and which have indicated that they accept correspondence from you. You may not attempt to spoof sender domains, send spam or other offending email practices including those covered in Section titled “Customer responsibility and passwords” of this agreement. Because of carrier technologies, BookMeToday makes no expressed or implied warranty of individual message receipt. BookMeToday is not liable for any issues that arise associated with the content that you provide or unforeseen liabilities of it being delivered.
15. Text message compliance
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal law regulating the way consumers are contacted by telephone, fax, and text message. The TCPA regulations apply to the text and automated landline messages you are able to send through the BookMeToday Software Service to communicate with your clients.
15.1. Prior Consent
CPA regulations require that companies obtain consent from consumers prior to sending any sort of text or automated telephone messages. For HIPAA covered entities, requirements for how consent is obtained are different depending on whether the messaging only contains health-related information or if it includes marketing-focused content. The TCPA regulations are described below to help you understand the restrictions. BookMeToday automates text message communications, but you are responsible for ensuring that the recipients of those communications have provided prior express written consent to receive them.
15.2. Consent for Informational Health Care Messages
For HIPAA covered entities sending informational only health-related messages, the client’s consent can be written, electronic or verbal. With these guidelines, you can send your clients informational messages about their health care. Such health-related informational messages include appointment reminders without marketing content.
15.3. Consent for Marketing-Focused Messages
The Software Service can also be used to send or automate marketing-focused messages, which are subject to more stringent TCPA regulations. Messages with any sort of marketing content require that your client provide you with “express written consent”, which may be obtained in an electronic format. The prior express written consent must identify that you may be sending text messages related to your goods and services using automated technology and that your client affirmatively agrees to receive such messages. The prior express consent must include your clients’ written or electronic acceptance. Specifically, by entering a cell phone number into your Software Service and not opting such cell phone out of the BookMeToday text message feature, you are directing BookMeToday to automatically send text message reminders and other communications to such cell phone and certifying that the user of such cell phone consents to the receipt of those messages.
TCPA regulations require you to honor client requests to opt-out of future telephone, fax, or text messages. The Software Service allows you to honor these requests on an individual basis. A client may also opt-out of text messages at any time by replying with the word STOP to any text message sent through the BookMeToday. You are responsible for all liability for any failure to receive consent or failure to opt users out of the text message feature.
15.5. Identity Disclosure
TCPA regulations require you to identify your business by name and telephone number in all text messages you send to clients. The Software Service enables you to comply with this rule by requiring you to include identifying tokens in all text message templates. You will not be able to send any text messages that do not contain complete and proper identification. Additionally, you may not attempt to spoof sender domains, send spam or other offending text message practices including those covered in the Section titled “Customer responsibility and passwords” of this Agreement.
BookMeToday makes no expressed or implied warranty of individual message receipt. BookMeToday shall not be liable for any issues that arise associated with the content that you provide or unforeseen liabilities of it being delivered. You shall be solely liable to comply with applicable laws and regulations within your jurisdiction in connection with telecommunication (e.g., email and text) messages that you send to your clients.
16. For Canada-based businesses subject to commercial electronic message requirements
You must comply with CASL requirements including, but not limited to, providing identification, making available an unsubscribe (opt-out) mechanism, and obtaining consent from the message recipient. You are responsible for applying all consent, identification, and opt-out requirements. For text messages, you agree to adopt the double opt-in process wherein 1) you may only use text message services for those clients with whom you have an existing business relationship and which have indicated that they accept correspondence from you and 2) the clients must reply to an opt-in message from their handset. For reliable delivery, you must adhere to message limitations including length and delivery, including that portion of the message which indicates who is sending the message, along with a mailing address, plus either a contact phone number, email address or contact page URL. You may not attempt to spoof sender domains, send spam or other offending text message practices including those covered in the Section titled “Customer responsibility and passwords” of this Agreement. Because of carrier technologies, BookMeToday makes no expressed or implied warranty of individual message receipt. BookMeToday shall not be liable for any issues that arise associated with the content that you provide or unforeseen liabilities of it being delivered. You agree to make your internal practices, books, and records, including policies and procedures and information, relating to this Agreement, available to BookMeToday for the purposes of BookMeToday determining your compliance with the obligation to secure consent for your clients to receive marketing messages and other communications (email, text, or other).

BookMeToday may offer a complimentary listing service (the “Listing Service”) under which your business information and client reviews (collectively, the “Business Information”) are submitted to search engines, indexes and web sites, as well as to the BookMeToday service referred to as the “BookMeToday Directory.” You agree to participate in the Listing Service, and allow BookMeToday to make this data available and provide registration services to the BookMeToday Directory and third party sites. It is up to third party sites to accept the submissions, and BookMeToday makes no warranty as to such sites' willingness to do so. For so long as Customer continues to subscribe to the Software Service, BookMeToday will make a good faith attempt to ensure accuracy and confidentiality of the information we provide to third party sites under the Listing Service. We have no control of third party websites or resources that are provided by companies or persons other than that of BookMeToday. Additional tools may be available from the third parties to provide additional updates to your information, but if you use such services, BookMeToday is not liable for any claim arising out of the combination of such services with the information provided by the Listing Service. BookMeToday may terminate your participation in the Listing Service, or this Agreement, at any time in the event that BookMeToday determines that you are not in compliance with this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement by either party, the Business Information and any consumer reviews may remain in any data feeds provided to third parties under the Listing Service but is subject to removal at any time as determined by BookMeToday. You may request explicit removal of the Business Information from such data feeds in writing, however BookMeToday takes no responsibility in obtaining the removal thereof. Upon request at any time up to 30 days following termination of this agreement, BookMeToday will provide you with an electronic copy of your Business Information, including consumer reviews, for which it has control over.

You authorize BookMeToday, as your business associate, to use and disclose Your Health Information as follows:
21.3. De-Identified Information
- BookMeToday will permit access to Your Health Information by business associates to whom you have consented to provide access to the Software Service. You acknowledge that once BookMeToday has granted access rights to another covered entity (or their respective business associates), BookMeToday has no control over the uses and disclosures that the business associate makes of Your Health Information, and the recipient may be subject to its own legal or regulatory obligations (including HIPAA) to retain such information and make such information available to patients, governmental authorities and others as required by applicable law or regulation.
- BookMeToday may “De-Identify” (means health information that has been de-identified in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Rule) Your Health Information and use and disclose de-identified information as provided by Section the section titled “BookMeToday’s Use of Protected Health Information” in this agreement.

- BookMeToday may use Your Health Information in order to prepare analyses and reports, such as activity or quality-metrics reports, or any other reports the Software Service makes available, in order to render these reports to you. Preparation of such analyses and reports may include the use of data aggregation services, which BookMeToday may perform using Your Health Information. Such reporting will be done in a manner that does not make any disclosure of Your Health Information that you would not be permitted to make.
- BookMeToday may use Your Health Information for the proper management and administration of the Service and our business, and to carry out its legal responsibilities. BookMeToday may also disclose Your Health Information for such purposes if the disclosure is required by law, or BookMeToday obtains reasonable assurances from the recipient that it will be held confidentially and used or further disclosed only (a) as required by law (as such term is defined in 45 CFR §164.103), or (b) for the purpose for which it was disclosed to the recipient, and the recipient notifies BookMeToday of any instances of which it is aware in which the confidentiality of the information has been breached. Without limiting the foregoing, BookMeToday may permit access to the system by our contracted system developers under appropriate confidentiality agreements.
In consideration of BookMeToday’s provision of the Service, you hereby transfer and assign to BookMeToday all right, title and interest in and to all De-Identified Information that BookMeToday makes from Your Health Information. You agree that BookMeToday may use, disclose, market, license and sell such De-Identified Information for any purpose without restriction, and that you have no interest in such information, or in the proceeds of any sale, license, or other commercialization thereof.
