Access and Security Guidelines.Access to and use of the Solution is intended to be available only to Users who have been assigned a license or otherwise approved by a Client, who have a registered user account through the Solution, and who have agreed to be bound by these Terms. The Client retains the sole discretion to approve requests for new user accounts. The User must use an account named specifically to them as an individual to access and use the Solution. The User acknowledges that they must have a specifically named account so that appropriate permissions may be granted on an individual basis, for logging purposes, and to sign into Third-Party Services. The User is solely responsible for ensuring the security and confidentiality of their username and password. It is the User’s responsibility to ensure that the User’s password is of sufficient strength and is changed regularly to prevent unauthorized access. The User shall not share their username and/or password with anyone at any time. The User will prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Solution and will notify QHR immediately of any suspected or actual such unauthorized use of their login information, or any other security breach involving their account or the Solution, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Compatible Devices.The Accuro Applications operate on certain operating systems. Users acknowledge and agree that QHR is not responsible for ensuring that a User’s software is compatible with the Accuro Applications, or that a User can use or access the Solution through the User’s device(s). We reserve the right to terminate a User’s use of the Solution should the User use any of the Accuro Applications with an incompatible or unauthorized device.
User Data.The User is solely responsible for any data the User posts to the Solution. The User will not provide, post, or transmit any data, information, content, or material that: (a) infringes, misappropriates or violates any intellectual property rights, publicity/privacy rights or other rights of any third party, or any law or regulation; or (b) contains any viruses or programming routines intended to damage, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data, security or Personal Information.

Linked Sites.In the event the Solution contains links to websites and other resources operated by third parties other than QHR (“Linked Sites”) such links are provided solely as a convenience to Users. QHR does not control such Linked Sites, and is not responsible for the content, products, services or information offered by any third parties. The inclusion of links to the Linked Sites on the Solution does not imply any endorsement or any website or the content, products or services offered, advertised, endorsed or promoted by any third party, or of any company or person.

At all times, the Personal Information collected, used, transmitted and stored in the Solution remains in the custody and control of the Provider User and/or Client.

Use of the Solution is at the User’s own risk of being exposed to such material.
Security Vulnerability.In order to maintain the security of the Solution, the User must not disclose any security vulnerability to anyone except QHR.

Personal Information that is stored within the Solution and is Client-hosted, may be stored outside of Canada. Personal Information sent to QHR for the purpose of customer support may be temporarily stored outside of Canada as QHR engages service providers located outside of Canada for the purposes of tracking and managing customer support.

Support.During the term of these Terms, QHR shall provide customer support to the Client and Users in accordance with the LSA.
Solution Availability.Where the Client has assigned a license to a User, and to the extent applicable in the performance of any Professional Services or Administrative Services, QHR shall provide the User with the necessary access to use the Solution, subject to these Terms. QHR will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the reliability and efficiency of the Solution, subject to regularly scheduled maintenance services or other scheduled interruptions and unscheduled interruptions to the availability of the Solution due to factors beyond the control of QHR, the User, or third parties and further subject to any other limitations or disclaimers in these Terms.

Users agree that the Usage Data will be owned by QHR without providing additional compensation to the User, Client, or any other person and without any liability whatsoever. QHR may utilize the Usage Data to optimize and improve the Solution, retain customers, or otherwise operate QHR’s business.
Suspension and Removal of Access.QHR may monitor, terminate, or suspend any User’s account or QHR’s services (including the Solution) at any time. QHR may, acting in its sole discretion and without prior notice to the User, suspend or remove any User’s access to the Solution, or any part of the Solution, at any time, and cancel the User’s account for any reason, including, without limitation:
- if the Provider User or Administrative User is, for any reason whatsoever, incapable of performing the Professional Services or Administrative Services to be provided under these Terms to a standard acceptable to QHR;
- if the User engages in fraud, dishonesty, breach of a statute or any other law;

Remedies.In addition to the foregoing, QHR reserves the right to pursue all remedies available at law and in equity for violation of these Terms. The parties recognize that a failure by the User to comply with any provision of these Terms will result in damages to QHR for which it could not be adequately compensated by monetary award. Accordingly, User agrees that in the event of such failure (or threatened failure) and in addition to any other remedies available to QHR at law or in equity, QHR shall be entitled as a matter of right, to apply to a court of competent equitable jurisdiction for such relief by way of a restraining order, injunction, decree or otherwise, as may be appropriate to ensure compliance with the provisions of these Terms.
Termination.These Terms, as amended from time to time by QHR, shall remain effective until terminated by the User or QHR. Upon termination of these Terms for any reason, the User must cease use of their account, cease accessing the Solution, delete any Accuro Applications from their device(s) and promptly delete, purge and destroy all electronic and other copies of any QHR Content.

QHR cannot and does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted, error free or secure access to the Solution.
Cap on Liability.Applicable laws may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to a User. However, even if this is the case, in no event shall the total liability of QHR for all damages, losses and causes of action and costs and expenses (including legal fees) whether in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence), equity or under any other legal theory, related to a User’s use of, or the inability to use, the Solution exceed the aggregate of all amounts paid to QHR by the Client on whose behalf the User provides or receives Administrative Services or Professional Services, as applicable, during the twelve (12) months prior to the event which gave rise to the claim in question.
- QHR is not responsible for the conduct of any User. By using the Solution, Users agree to accept such risks and agree that QHR is not responsible for the acts or omissions of Users on the Solution or when involved in providing Administrative Services or Professional Services.
- QHR is not responsible for the use of any Personal Information that a User discloses to other Users on or as a result of using the Solution.
- QHR is not responsible for any charges, including data overage fees, which may be charged by a User’s internet service provider as a result of the User’s use of the Solution. Users are responsible for monitoring their own data consumption, and any charges incurred as a result.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, the Solution is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of title, non-infringement, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose, security, suitability or accuracy.
