All Data usage must comply with applicable privacy laws. AMA/DATA BASE LICENSEE. Certain portions of the Database are proprietary to the AMA and consist of the AMA's Census of Physicians Practice Arrangements (the "AMA-PPD").

Your use of AMA-PPD is also governed by the terms and conditions of these AMA POLICIES. Your rights to the Database are contingent upon the continuation of that license agreement and the sublicense agreement between us and DBL. The continuing availability of the Database is dependent upon said agreement remaining in place, and changes in the terms and conditions of such agreement may result in modifications to the terms and conditions under which you may continue to use the Database. The AMA and DBL are third-party beneficiaries of the License Agreement and may enforce your compliance with the terms of the License Agreement. You shall notify us in writing within seven (7) days if a physician or medical student notifies you that such physician or medical student wishes to opt out of receiving any and all mail, telephone and facsimile contacts. In the event a physician requests not to be contacted for any reason, you shall immediately cease and desist from any further contact with such physician. FEES. For purposes of calculating Usage Fees as they relate to any royalties that may be due and payable to the AMA as a result of your use of the Database, Usages represent volume charges for records that are ordered, downloaded, exported, e-mailed, or printed from reports. Downloads, exports, e-mails, and report-prints are charged 1 Usage per record. The Usage Fees are deemed to be fully earned when the Data is requested and generated, and it is not refundable. You are solely responsible for any sales, use, excise or other taxes, duties, or levies of any governmental entity (exclusive of taxes on our net income), if any, relating to the services provided under the License Agreement.

The Data shall not be used in connection with the dissemination of distasteful materials and shall not be used in connection with any unlawful purpose or prohibited advertising.

"Resident Physician" shall mean an individual at any level in a graduate medical education program, including subspecialty programs. The Data shall not be used in conjunction with secondary data sources or used to contact Resident Physicians at their workplace for job recruitment purposes. You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless DBL, the AMA, and their respective officers, directors, agents, assigns and successors in interest (collectively the “DBL Indemnitees”) from and against any claims, demands, suits, causes of action, legal or administrative proceedings (“Claims”) and pay all damages, costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, paid, incurred or suffered by any of DBL Indemnities arising out of or resulting from (i) your breach of these policies or any act, error or omission by you or any third party in the performance or non-performance of any of your obligations in connection with the Data, or (ii) your or any third party’s use or disclosure of all or any part of the Data, or any unauthorized use of the Data.
