The OCINet website may contain groups, forums, communities, ticketing applications, reports, surveys, forms, calendars, and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to interact with OCINet, with other OCINet members and clients (collectively, “communication services”), or the public. You agree to use the communication services only to post, send, and receive messages and material that are proper and related to the particular communication service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a communication service, you will not:

  • Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten, or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others.
  • Publish, post, upload, distribute, or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic, name, material or information.
  • Upload files that contain software or other material protected by intellectual property laws (or by rights of privacy of publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents.
  • Upload files that contain viruses, corrupted files, malware, or any other similar software, code, or programs that may damage the operation of another’s computer.
  • Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose.
  • Conduct or forward contests, pyramid schemes, or chain letters.
  • Download any file posted by another user of a communication service that you know, or reasonably should know, cannot be legally distributed in such manner.
  • Falsify or delete any author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations or labels in a file that is uploaded.
  • Restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the communication services.
  • Violate any code of conduct that may be applicable for any particular communication service.
  • Harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including email addresses, without their consent.
  • Post or share personal or patient personal health information, diagnostic images or reports, or financial information.
  • Violate any applicable laws or regulations.

OCINet has no obligation to monitor the communication services. However, OCINet reserves the right to review and to remove any materials in its sole discretion. OCINet reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the communication services or the entire website at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.

OCINet reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in OCINet’s sole discretion.

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself, your patients, or your family/children in any communication service. OCINet does not control or endorse the content found in any communication service and, therefore, OCINet disclaims any liability with regard to the communication services and any actions resulting from your participation. Views do not necessarily reflect those of OCINet.

Materials uploaded to a communication service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations.

Materials Provided to OCINet or Posted on the OCINet Website

OCINet does not claim ownership of the materials you provide to OCINet or post, upload, input, enter, or submit to any OCINet website or its associated services (collectively “submissions”). However, by posting, uploading, inputting, providing or submitting your submission you are granting OCINet permission to use your submission in connection with the operation of their Internet businesses including, without limitation, the rights to copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate, and reformat your submission; and to publish your name in connection with your submission.

No compensation will be paid with respect to the use of your submission. OCINet is under no obligation to post or use any submission and may remove any submission at any time in OCINet’s sole discretion.

By posting, uploading, inputting, providing, or submitting your submission you warrant and represent that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to your submission.

Liability Disclaimer

Users interact with, visit, and use this website at their own risk and of their own accord.

The information, graphics, software, products, and services included in, described on, or available through the OCINet website may include factual inaccuracies, typographical errors, and other mistakes. OCINet and/or its vendors (on approval from OCINet) may make improvements and/or changes to the OCINet website at any time. Advice received via the OCINet website should not be relied upon for personal, medical, legal, or financial decisions, and you should consult an appropriate professional for specific advice tailored to your situation.

OCINet and/or its suppliers hereby disclaim all warranties and conditions with regard to this information, software, products, services, and related graphics, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall OCINet and/or its vendors be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever. This includes, without limitation, damages for loss of use, data or profits, arising out of or in any way connected with the use or performance of the OCINet website, with the delay or inability to use the OCINet website or related services, the provision of or failure to provide services, or for any information, software, products, services, and related graphics obtained through the OCINet website, or otherwise arising out of the use of the OCINet website, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if OCINet or any of its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the OCINet website, or with any of these terms of use, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the OCINet website.

Termination/Access Restriction

OCINet reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the OCINet website and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice.
