Terms of Use

This Terms of Use Agreement (the "Agreement") govern-s your use of the collection of Web pages (the “Website) and other proprietary digital content (the “ATA Resources”) available through the American Telemedicine Association (“ATA”). URLs for those sites include www.americantelemed.org and http://hub.americantelemed.org/Home/

By using this site you agree to accept and be bound by the Terms and Conditions.  ATA reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify these Terms and Conditions, at any time, without prior notification and your continued use of this site constitutes your acceptance of any and all modifications.  We encourage all Users to frequently review these Terms and Conditions.


Access to the ATA website is provided to ATA members and non members so that they can learn more and receive access to ATA resources, purchase ATA products, register for ATA events/programs, and interact with other ATA members/non members. ATA may provide you with a password to access certain resources, provided that you complete any required application process and provide accurate information in your membership information. You may use your password only to access the website in ways consistent with this Agreement — no other access to or use of the website, ATA resources, or ATA services is authorized. Further, you agree not to re-circulate or otherwise distribute your password to other people or organizations or to copy offsite any part of ATA’s resources without written permission. Please report any unauthorized use of your password promptly to info@americantelemed.org. You acknowledge that you have read and understood ATA’s Privacy Policy and agree that ATA may collect, use, and distribute information pursuant to that policy. If you post comments or opportunities to ATA through the website, you grant ATA a nonexclusive, royalty-free right to use that content.


The content displayed on this site, including but not limited to the design, images, illustrations, graphics, photography, text and audio and video clips, if applicable, are owned, licensed to, or used with permission of third parties by ATA, unless otherwise noted.   Such content is subject to copyright, trademark, trade dress and other intellectual property rights owned by ATA, licensed to ATA or authorized for use by ATA on this site.

The content of this site is intended for personal, non commercial use only.  No authorization is given to reproduce, modify, publish, distribute, transmit, download or create derivative works from any content on this site except as specifically permitted in these Terms of Use, without written permission from ATA.  

You agree to abide by all applicable laws and regulations, including intellectual property laws, in connection with your use of the ATA website. In particular, you certify that your use of any part of the ATA Resources will be in compliance  with US intellectual property laws and these Terms of Use.  In using the ATA Site, Resources, and/or services, you further agree (a) not to violate anyone's rights of privacy, (b) not to act in any way that might give rise to civil or criminal liability, (c) not to use or attempt to use another person's password without their explicit consent, (d) not to collect or store personal data about anyone, (e)  not to interfere with the work of other Users  or ATA staff, servers, or resources, (f) not to transmit or facilitate the transmission of unsolicited email ("spam"), (g) not to harass, threaten, or otherwise annoy anyone, and (h) not to act in any way that might be harmful to minors, including, without limitation, transmitting or facilitating the transmission of child pornography, which is prohibited by federal law and may be reported to the authorities should it be discovered by ATA.


If you post comments or opportunities on the ATA Website, you agree to grant ATA a non-exclusive, royalty free right to display and use this content.

You agree that we may contact you from time to time with surveys or other questions regarding your opinions about and uses of ATA, as well as with information we believe may be of interest to you. In addition, we request that, according to standard academic practice, if you use the ATA Resources or the ATA Website for any research that results in an article, a book, or other publication, you list the ATA resource or website as a resource in your bibliography.


ATA may immediately terminate this Terms of Use Agreement   at any time upon written notice (including via email) to you if it determines, at its sole discretion, that any these Terms of Use have been violated. Upon termination, you agree that ATA may immediately deactivate any password it has issued to you and bar you from accessing the ATA Resources or the Website.


ATA does not guarantee or warrant that the content available in the ATA resources/website is accurate, complete, non-infringing, or legally accessible in your jurisdiction, and you agree that you are solely responsible for abiding by all laws and regulations that may be applicable to the viewing of the content. In addition, the ATA resources are provided to you on an as-is and as-available basis. You agree that your use of the website and the resources is at your sole risk. You understand and agree that ATA makes no warranty or representation regarding the accuracy, currency, completeness, reliability, or usefulness of the content in the resources, that the website or the resources will meet your requirements, that access to the resources will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free, or that defects, if any, will be corrected. We make no warranty of any kind, either express or implied.


You agree to indemnify and hold harmless ATA and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, officers, directors, and employees from and against any and all liability, loss, claims, damages, costs, and/or actions (including attorneys’ fees) arising from your use of ATA’s services, the site, or the ATA resources.


Under no circumstances, including, without limitation, negligence, shall ATA or its parents, affiliates, officers, employees, or agents be responsible for any indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages arising from or in connection with the use of or the inability to use the website or the resources, or any content contained on the Website or in the Resources, or resulting from unauthorized access to the Resources or your transmissions of data, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, use, data, or other intangibles, even if ATA has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so some of the above may not apply to you.

This Agreement, the Privacy Policy, and other policies posted on the website constitute the full and complete agreement between you and ATA and are not intended to inure to third-party beneficiaries.
