Customer acknowledges that the professional duty to the patient in providing healthcare services lies solely with the healthcare professional providing patient care services. As between the Parties, Customer takes full responsibility for the use of all information provided through the Company Platform and Services in providing patient care. Clinical information, if any, provided through the Company Platform and Services is intended as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, the knowledge, expertise and judgment of professional personnel. Company and its suppliers disclaim all liability for the use of any information or results provided by, or obtained through, the Company Platform and Services and used by professional personnel. Company and its suppliers are not liable for actions of Customer (including its Authorized Users) which may result in any liability due to malpractice or failure to warn. Company and its suppliers provide no medical or other professional advice in connection with this Agreement, the Company Platform and Services and the information contained therein. Customer acknowledges and agrees that a licensed professional is responsible for independently reaching any medical or other professional judgment, and for any resulting diagnosis and treatments, notwithstanding any use of the Company Platform and Services by such professional. The absence of a warning for a given drug or drug combination should not be construed to indicate that the drug or drug combination is safe, appropriate, or effective in any given patient.
5. FEES AND PAYMENT TERMS.

Customer authorizes Company to charge such credit card for all Services listed in the Order Form for the Initial Subscription Term and any Renewal Subscription Term(s) as set forth on the Order Form. Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, Company will invoice Customer in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise expressly set forth in the applicable Order Form or Additional Terms, all Fees will be due and payable by Customer within ten (10) days after their respective invoice date. Customer is solely responsible for maintaining complete and accurate billing and contact information with Company.
5.3 Taxes. All Fees do not include any applicable taxes, and Customer will be responsible for paying any and all applicable sales, software license, use, value added, excise, property, withholding tax or any other taxes due in connection with the performance of this Agreement (“Taxes”) whether imposed on Customer or Company; provided, however, that Customer shall not be required to pay any Taxes applicable to Company’s net income. If Company pays any Tax that is payable by Customer in accordance with the foregoing, Customer shall reimburse Company for the amount of such Tax upon receiving an invoice therefor.
5.4 Fee Increases. Unless otherwise expressly set forth in the applicable Order Form in a provision specifically referencing and overriding this Section, Fees may be increased or otherwise modified from time to time by Company. Any such increases or modifications to the Fees shall take effect thirty (30) days following notification to you via email (the “Notification Period”). If you do not agree to such increased or modified Fees, you may terminate the Subscription Term for the applicable Company Products and/or Services for which the Fees have been increase or modified by providing notice to Company during the Notification Period. You acknowledge and agree that your continued access to or use of the Company Platform after the Notification Period constitutes your immediate acceptance of any such modified Fees.
5.5 No Setoff. All amounts due under this Agreement to be paid by Customer to Company will be paid in full and Customer will not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against Company in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part.
5.6 Overdue Charges. If any Fees are not paid by Customer by the due date, Company may, without prejudice to any other right or remedy, (a) charge interest on a day to day basis both before and after any judgment at a rate equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by Applicable Law, from the due date for payment to the date of actual payment, and/or (b) condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 5.2 (Invoicing and Payment). Without limitation of the foregoing, Customer shall pay on demand all of Company’s reasonable attorney fees and other costs incurred by Company to collect any fees or charges due to Company under this Agreement following Customer’s breach of Section 5.2 (Invoicing and Payment). For the avoidance of doubt, Fees assessed on a periodic basis (e.g., annually) shall be payable by Customer throughout the applicable Subscription Term, in accordance with this Agreement, regardless of whether Customer has used any Company Products or Services.
5.7 Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by Customer under this Agreement or any other agreement between Customer and Company is thirty (30) or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts Customer has authorized Company to charge to Customer’s credit card), Company may, without limiting Company’s other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s entire unpaid Fee obligations under this Agreement or such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend the Company Platform, Services and any other services to Customer until such amounts are paid in full.
