Air Methods Ascend, including the Air Methods Ascend website (https://airmethods.thinkific.com/pages/ascend) (the “Website”), all other Ascend websites, mobile applications, platforms and other interactive formats through which the Website is delivered (collectively, the “Service”) are owned, operated and distributed by and on behalf of AMC CE, LLC (“we,” “us,” or “our”).
1.2 These Terms apply to all users of the Service (collectively, “Authorized Users,” “you,” “your,” or “yours,”), including Authorized Users who are only viewing Content (defined below) available on the Service and Authorized Users who have registered to participate in the Courses (defined below) or Webinars (defined below). Authorized Users are comprised of:
a. “Individual Users,” which are individuals with access to the Service who have registered an Account (defined below) on their own behalf or who are registered for an Account by Enterprise Users. Individual User Accounts which are linked to Enterprise Users are subject to the Enterprise Users’ control over such Accounts.
b. “Enterprise Users,” which are organizations or businesses that have access to the Service as administrators of Accounts, and that act on behalf of the Individual Users which they register. Each such Individual User Account under the authority of an Enterprise User shall be considered “linked” to their respective Enterprise Users Accounts for purposes of these Terms.
“Account” means an authorized account on the Service, which has been registered by an Individual User or Enterprise User to access and use the Service pursuant to these Terms. These Terms apply to all Authorized Users, except as otherwise explicitly limited to a category of Authorized Users in these Terms.
1.4 We may, at our sole discretion, modify these Terms at any time by posting a new version on the Service. By accessing the Service at any time after such modifications, you are agreeing to such
modifications. We reserve the right to refuse to provide the Service to any person or entity for any reason in whole or in part at any time, with or without prior notice. You agree that by registering, accessing, or using the Service, you are agreeing to these Terms as a legally binding contract with us. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not register for, access, or otherwise use the Service.
2. ACCOUNTS, PASSWORDS AND SECURITY
2.1 If the Service requires you to open or register an Account, you must complete the registration process by providing us with current, complete and accurate information, as prompted by the applicable registration fields. You acknowledge that by providing any information to us which is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we and our service providers reserve the right to terminate your access and use of the Service and any access and use of linked Individual Users. You agree to immediately update all information you provide to us upon a change, so that all information on the Service remains current, complete, and accurate. As part of the registration process, you may be asked to select a username and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of your Account and password, and for any and all activities and conduct through your Account, including that which is done by you or anyone else.
2.2 You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you log out of your Account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your Account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. Neither we nor our service providers will be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or Account, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by us, our service providers or another party due to someone else using your Account or password. We have the right to terminate any Account at any time in our sole discretion for any reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.
3. ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICE
3.1 Subject to your compliance with these Terms, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to use the Service solely as set forth herein. We reserve the right to suspend, terminate, or modify your access to the Service, and any service or material we provide on the Service, including the Website and the Content, in our sole discretion without notice.
3.2 You may terminate your Account at any time; provided, that you will not have any right to a refund, credit, or any other consideration for such termination, except as expressly set forth in Section 13.
3.3 If your Account is linked to an Enterprise User, your access to the Service may be dependent on such Enterprise User maintaining an Account and complying with these Terms, and therefore, your access to the Service depends on such Enterprise User’s compliance herewith. If such Enterprise User fails to pay any fees due to us as required herein, you may experience changes to and lose access to your Account and the Service.
3.4 We do not control the technical performance of the Service, which is the responsibility of our third-party service providers, and therefore, we will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Service is inaccessible, unavailable, or malfunctioning at any time or for any period. You can learn more about our third-party service providers and the functionality of the Service at https://www.thinkific.com/terms-of-service/. If you notice a performance issue with any portion of the Service, submit service requests to the [email protected] and the Thinkific Labs, Inc. support email address provided on the Service. From time to time, we may restrict access to all or portions of the Service, to Authorized Users, including to accommodate security patches, upgrades, updates, and unscheduled downtime.
3.5 Upon the termination of your Account for any reason, you will no longer have access to your Account, the Courses, or the Webinars, and all information contained in your Account may be deleted. This information cannot be recovered once your Account is terminated. Upon the termination of your Account or of any Individual User’s Account linked with Enterprise Users, such Individual User Account and all information contained in such Accounts may be deleted. This information cannot be recovered once such
Account is terminated. Termination of an Account only terminates access to the Courses and Webinars and linked Individual Users’ access to the Courses and Webinars, however, it does not terminate any arrangements you have entered with other Authorized Users or third parties that do not involve AMC.
4. ENTERPRISE USER LICENSES
Enterprise Users may add or remove linked Individual Users throughout the Subscription Term (defined below), provided, that AMC will not refund or credit Enterprise Users for any removed linked Individual Users. Enterprise Users may request that AMC provide a progress report for its linked Individual Users’ Courses following the expiration or earlier termination of the Subscription Term. Enterprise Users may, by signing an Order (defined below) with AMC, add linked Individual Users during a Subscription Term, provided, that the then-current fees will apply to added linked Individual Users. The Subscription Term applicable to the added linked Individual Users will be coterminous with the Subscription Term applicable to the existing linked Individual Users. AMC is not a party to any agreement, employment arrangement, or any other relationship between Enterprise Users and linked Individual Users whereby the Enterprise User agrees to provide subscriptions to the Service or linked Individual Users agree to register Accounts and complete Courses or Webinars.
5. COURSES, WEBINARS, AND PATIENT CARE GUIDELINES
5.1 Subject to these Terms, AMC makes AMC and third-party clinical education and other courses available on the Service (collectively, the “Courses” and each a “Course”), including certain specialty training courses, which are accredited by the International Board of Specialty Certification. Certain Courses offered by AMC are designed for Authorized Users who are preparing to renew their emergency medical or clinical certifications. Subject to these Terms, AMC may also make AMC and third-party clinical education, webinars, and live virtual training available on the Service on an ad hoc basis (collectively, the “Webinars” and each a “Webinar”). When an Authorized User successfully completes all such required Courses and associated evaluations, and certain Webinars and associated evaluations, AMC will award applicable Authorized Users with completion certificates (each, a “Certificate”). Individual Users shall complete Courses and Webinars in an ethical manner in compliance with these Terms. AMC issues Certificates in reliance on such Authorized Users providing accurate, complete, and good faith representations that all required Courses and Webinars and associated evaluations were validly completed. The Courses and Webinars are independent of and do not include the patient care guidelines (collectively, “PCGs”) of any specific entity, and AMC does not warrant or guarantee that Authorized Users will meet minimum required standards for clinical competency by taking the Courses and Webinars or receiving a Certificate. Authorized Users are solely responsible for learning and implementing PCGs as applicable to Authorized Users and ensuring that Authorized Users meet minimum required standards for clinical competency.
5.2 Authorized Users are solely responsible for determining the requirements for their clinical certifications, and AMC cannot guarantee that Authorized Users who complete the required Courses and Webinars will pass their certification evaluations. Courses and Webinars are subject to change at any time for any reason, including, without limitation, for changing certification requirements, state or federal nursing board standards, and loss or change in accreditation status.
6. ACCESS TO COURSES AND WEBINARS
Individual Users will receive access to each Course for a period of 1 year from the date on which the Course was paid for, except as otherwise specified in the Order or the applicable Course enrollment page (“Subscription Term”), unless earlier terminated as set forth in these Terms. Access to the Course will expire upon the expiration date of the Subscription Term unless the Individual User or Enterprise User extends access to a Course by purchasing access via the Course enrollment page or upon the execution of a separate Order. The Subscription Term for each Course will not be extended solely based on enrollment and completion of payment for separate Courses.
Individual Users will receive access to each Webinar for a limited period to be determined by AMC on a case-by-case basis.

1. CLINICAL EDUCATION SERVICES
1.1 AMC shall provide the selected clinical education services set forth on the Purchase Order(s) which are mutually executed by the Parties (each, an “Order,” and collectively, “Orders”), each of which is incorporated herein by reference (collectively, the “Services”). The Services shall be provided to Customer’s designated trainees (each, a “Trainee”) at AMC’s training center located at 5500 S. Quebec St., Greenwood Village, Colorado 80111 or another location provided by AMC or the Customer (the “Training Center”). The Services include the following clinical education, as set forth on the Order:

The foregoing standards are typical to each applicable course, provided, however, that length and substance of each course is subject to change, including, without limitation, based on Customer requests, AMC requirements, and other factors. There will be no force or effect to any different terms of any related purchase order or similar form provided by Customer or any terms which Customer adds to an Order, even if such form or Order is signed by the Parties.
1.2 Customer shall select training dates which were proposed by AMC at least forty-five (45) days prior to the scheduled commencement of such training (each, a “Training Session”). Customer shall submit a written request to AMC to reschedule a Training Session at least thirty (30) days prior to the first day of the applicable Training Session. If AMC accepts such request, which is subject to availability, Customer shall pay for any Adjustments (defined below) caused by such change. In order to cancel a Training Session, Customer shall provide written notice to AMC at least thirty (30) days prior to the first day of the applicable Training Session. Customer shall not be entitled to any refund, credits, or other consideration hereunder for cancelled Training Sessions.

Customer shall require that the Customer Contract Manager respond promptly to any reasonable requests from AMC for instructions, information, or approvals. Customer shall immediately notify AMC if the Customer Contract Manager changes.
