Dental Insider's products and services are provided by Dental Insider, LLC. These terms and conditions of use ("terms") govern your use of Dental Insider's websites, products and services (collectively, the "Services"), so please read them carefully.
1. Using our services
You may use our Services only if you can form a binding contract with Dental Insider. No use of the Services is permitted by those under the age of majority in their state of residence. In no event is use of the Services permitted by those under the age of 13. If you are using the Services on behalf of any entity, then you are agreeing to the Terms on behalf of that entity.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. Except in the context of browsing or accessing our Services in accordance with these Terms, you may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These Terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Do not remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.2. The DI Rating
A DI Rating reflects Dental Insider's assessment of a given dentist, based upon the information obtained by or submitted to Dental Insider. Someone else's assessment of the same dentist may be very different, or be based upon different information. A DI Rating is not an endorsement of any particular dentist, and is not a guarantee of a dentist's quality, competency, or character. Nor is the DI Rating a predictor of the outcome of any matter in which such dentist is involved. Rather, the DI Rating is intended to be a starting point to gather information about dentists who may be suitable for your dental needs - but you should not rely solely on the DI Rating in deciding whether to contact or hire any given dentist.
3. Information on the services
Our Services display both Dental Insider-created content and content that is not created or developed by Dental Insider. We may review third party-content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But we do not routinely screen third-party content that is published via our Services.
4. Premium services for lawyers
Dental Insider offers optional Upgraded Services for dentists. By selecting an Upgraded Service, you agree to pay Dental Insider the subscription or usage fees indicated for that service. Payments for subscription services will be charged on the day your Upgraded Service goes into effect and will cover the use of that service for the period indicated. Thereafter, you agree that monthly payments will continue to be charged to your credit card on a recurring basis until you cancel your service. The amount of the monthly recurring charge will be the then-current subscription fee applicable to the Upgraded Service you selected. You acknowledge that the amount of the recurring charge may increase if the applicable subscription fee increases.
If your payment method fails or your account is past due, Dental Insider reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your Upgraded Services. Any such suspension or termination will result in the cancellation of any promotional programs applicable to your Upgraded Services. You agree to submit any disputes regarding any charge to your account in writing to Dental Insider within sixty (60) days of such charge, otherwise such dispute will be waived and such charge will be final and not subject to challenge.
5. Dental advertising and communications
It is solely the responsibility of dentists and dental offices to ensure that any information or advertisements they post or place on the Dental Insiderwebsite, and any communications they may have with prospective patients through the Services, fully complies with all applicable laws and rules of professional conduct, including those concerning the unauthorized practice of dentistry and those regulating the form, manner or content of communications with patients, advertising, or other matters.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
