This site is intended for medical professionals around the world but is accessible by anyone, anywhere. It contains information from places on this planet where laws and regulations are probably very different from those that you might be operating under. You should not take any action or make any decision without consulting your own legal and/or professional representative wherever you are. Medical Spa MD is accessible worldwide and is a public website that can be viewed where different laws or regulations apply. If you choose to advertise on this site or any other site associated or affiliated with Medical Spa MD, you agree and acknowledge that you do so on your own initiative and at your own risk, and that you are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws. Medical Spa MD and Customer and Medical Spa MD and Partners or Select Partners are not legal partners or agents, but are independent contractors.
Many products and services are regulated by laws or regulations which vary from country to country and by location. All advertising, as well as the products and services being advertised, must clearly comply with all applicable laws and regulations in all countries and jurisdictions in which they do business. All advertisers bear their own responsibility for understanding the laws applicable to their business and represent that they are in compliance with all applicable laws.
Program use is subject to all applicable Medical Spa MD and Partner policies, Medical Spa MD Terms (/info/). Policies may be modified at any time. Customer shall direct only to Medical Spa MD communications regarding Customer ads on Partner Properties. Some Program features are identified as "Beta," "Ad Experiment," or otherwise unsupported ("Beta Features"). To the fullest extent permitted by law, Beta Features are provided "as is" and at Customer's option and risk. Customer shall not disclose to any third party any information from Beta Features, existence of non-public Beta Features or access to Beta Features.

DISCLAIMER & LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
To the fullest extent permitted by law, MEDICAL SPA MD DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FOR NONINFRINGEMENT, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSE. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Medical Spa MD disclaims all guarantees regarding positioning, levels, quality, or timing of: costs per click; click through rates; availability and delivery of any impressions, clicks; conversions or other results for any ads or Targets; the accuracy of Partner data (e.g. reach, size of audience, demographics or other purported characteristics of audience); and the adjacency or placement of ads within a Program. Customer understands that third parties may generate impressions or clicks on Customer's ads for prohibited or improper purposes, and Customer accepts the risk of any such impressions and clicks. Customer's exclusive remedy, and Medical Spa MD's exclusive liability, for suspected invalid impressions or clicks is for Customer to make a claim for a refund in the form of advertising credits for Medical Spa MD Properties within the time period required under Payment Section below. Any refunds for suspected invalid impressions or clicks are within Medical Spa MD's sole discretion.
NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, INTEREST, GOODWILL, LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA OR FOR ANY LOSS OR INTERRUPTION TO CUSTOMER'S BUSINESS) WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY; AND (b) EACH PARTY'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO THE OTHER IS LIMITED TO AMOUNTS PAID OR PAYABLE TO MEDICAL SPA MD BY CUSTOMER FOR THE AD GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
Except for payment obligations, neither party is liable for failure or delay resulting from a condition beyond the reasonable control of the party, including without limitation to acts of God, government, terrorism, natural disaster, labor conditions and power failures.
Customer represents and warrants that (a) it is authorized to act on behalf of and has bound to this Agreement any third party for which Customer advertises (a "Principal"), (b) as between Principal and Customer, the Principal owns any rights to Program information in connection with those ads, and (c) Customer shall not disclose Principal's Program information to any other party without Principal's consent.
Customer shall be responsible for all charges and shall pay all charges in U.S. Dollars or in such other currency as agreed to in writing by the parties. Late payments bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. Customer is responsible for paying (y) all taxes, government charges, and (z) reasonable expenses and attorneys fees Medical Spa MD incurs collecting late amounts. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Customer waives all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect Customer's credit card issuer rights). Charges are solely based on Medical Spa MD's measurements, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds (if any) are at the discretion of Medical Spa MD and only in the form of advertising credit for only Medical Spa MD Properties. Nothing in these Terms or an IO may obligate Medical Spa MD to extend credit to any party. Customer acknowledges and agrees that any credit card and related billing and payment information that Customer provides to Medical Spa MD may be shared by Medical Spa MD with companies who work on Medical Spa MD's behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to Medical Spa MD and servicing Customer's account. Medical Spa MD may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Medical Spa MD shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties.
Customer shall indemnify and defend Medical Spa MD, its Partners, agents, affiliates, and licensors from any third party claim or liability (collectively, "Liabilities"), arising out of Use, Customer's Program use, Targets, Creative and Services and breach of the Agreement. Partners shall be deemed third party beneficiaries of the above Partner indemnity.
THE AGREEMENT MUST BE CONSTRUED AS IF BOTH PARTIES JOINTLY WROTE IT. ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LITIGATED EXCLUSIVELY IN THE COUNTRY OF THE PHILLIPPINES, AND MEDICAL SPA MD AND CUSTOMER CONSENT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION IN THOSE COURTS. The Agreement constitutes the entire and exclusive agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes and replaces any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter hereof. No statements or promises have been relied upon in entering into this Agreement except as expressly set forth herein, and any conflicting or additional terms contained in any other documents (e.g. reference to a purchase order number) or oral discussions are void. Each party shall not disclose the terms or conditions of these Terms to any third party, except to its professional advisors under a strict duty of confidentiality or as necessary to comply with a government law, rule or regulation. Customer may grant approvals, permissions, extensions and consents by email, but any modifications by Customer to the Agreement must be made in a writing executed by both parties. Any notices to Medical Spa MD must be sent via first class or air mail or overnight courier, and are deemed given upon receipt. A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default. Unenforceable provisions will be modified to reflect the parties' intention and only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable, and remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect. Customer may not assign any of its rights hereunder and any such attempt is void. Medical Spa MD and Customer and Medical Spa MD and Partners or Select Partners are not legal partners or agents, but are independent contractors. In the event that these Terms or a Program expire or is terminated, Medical Spa MD shall not be obligated to return any materials to Customer. Notice to Customer may be effected by sending an email to the email address specified in Customer's account and is deemed received when sent (for email) or no more than 15 days after having been posted.
