Version 3.0 - February 2023
Welcome to anagram.care, the website and online service of Anagram, Inc. (“anagram.care," “Anagram, ”we,” or “us”) including any platforms, APIs, interfaces, related web sites, networks, embeddable widgets, downloadable software, and other services provided by us (the "Services").
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. BY ACCESSING, DOWNLOADING, USING, PURCHASING, OR SUBSCRIBING TO THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF SERVICE, FEES AND PRICING POLICY, BUSINESS ASSOCIATE AGREEMENT
If you are not eligible, or do not agree to these Terms of Service, then you do not have our permission to use the Services. These Terms of Service apply to all visitors, users, subscribers and others who access the Services (each, a “User”) and take effect when you click an "I Accept" button or checkbox presented with these Terms of Service or, if earlier, when you use any of the Services (the “Effective Date”).
1. Provision of Services
Anagram will (a) make the Services available to User, (b) provide applicable Anagram standard support for the Services to User at no additional charge, and/or upgraded support if purchased, (c) use commercially reasonable efforts to make the online Services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for: (i) planned downtime (of which Anagram may give advance electronic notice, in its discretion), and (ii) any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Anagram’s reasonable control, including, for example, an act of God, act of government, flood, fire, earthquake, civil unrest, act of terror, pandemic, strike or other labor problem (other than one involving Anagram employees), User software, hardware, or third-party platforms or services used by User, Internet service provider failure or delay, or denial or service attack, and (d) provide the Services in accordance with laws and government regulations applicable to Anagram’s provision of its Services to its customers generally (i.e., without regard for User’s particular use of the Services), and subject to User’s use of the Services in accordance with these Terms of Service.
If User is a “Covered Entity” as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), User agrees to the terms of our Business Associate Agreement
(“BAA”). Confidentiality of Protected Health Information (PHI) is governed by the BAA.
Anagram will maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of User Data. As used in these Terms of Service, “User Data” means electronic data and information submitted by or for User to the Services or to access insurance information through the Services. Those safeguards will include, but will not be limited to, measures designed to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of User Data (other than by User). The terms of the BAA shall apply to the extent User Data includes Protected Health Information, as defined in the BAA.
2. Use of Services
Services are purchased as monthly, bi-annual, or annual (or additional periods as Anagram may offer from time to time) subscriptions. Subscriptions for Services may be added at any time at the same pricing as the underlying subscription pricing, prorated for the portion of the subscription period remaining at the time the subscriptions are added. Any added subscriptions will terminate on the same date as the underlying subscriptions. User agrees that its purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written comments made by Anagram regarding future functionality or features.
Services are provided only at Authorized Locations. For purposes of these Terms of Service, “Authorized Locations” means the locations requested by User in the underlying subscription order. User will incur additional fees for all requests to change Authorized Locations. User will pay any additional location usage fees in accordance with Section 3.
User will (a) be responsible for User’s compliance with these Terms of Service, (b) be responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of User Data, the means by which User acquired User Data and User’s authorization to use User Data, and to authorize Anagram to use User Data, with the Services, (c) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of Services, and notify Anagram promptly of any such unauthorized access or use, (d) obtain and maintain any equipment and ancillary services needed to connect to, access or otherwise use the Services, and (e) use Services only in accordance with these Terms of Service and applicable laws and government regulations. Any use of the Services in breach of the foregoing by User that in Anagram’s judgment threatens the security, integrity or availability of Services, may result in Anagram’s immediate suspension of the Services, however Anagram will use commercially reasonable efforts under the circumstances to provide User with notice and an opportunity to remedy such violation or threat prior to any such suspension and, in Anagram’s sole discretion, to limit any such suspension to only the scope (e.g., User, Authorized Location, and/or time period) Anagram deems necessary to protect the security, integrity, or availability of the Services.
If Anagram checks eligibility or submits claims for reimbursement for User’s patients, User will assure that Anagram receives complete and accurate log in credentials, claims information and any other necessary information, including, without limitation, providing National Provider Identification numbers and any other necessary documentation and will execute any such agreements necessary for Anagram to carry out the Services. User shall be and remain responsible for all coding and billing decisions that affect the amount of reimbursement and for the accuracy of all bills. Should a bill need to be resubmitted based on a User billing error, User shall be responsible for any limited fees associated with resubmission.
User acknowledges that when Anagram provides User with benefits coverage and reimbursement information, Anagram is providing estimates of benefits coverage and reimbursement information based on information found through the applicable third-party. User further acknowledges that these estimates may vary from actual amounts User or User’s patients will collect from an insurer when the actual claim is processed by the insurer. User also acknowledges that if it requests assignment of benefits on a claim submitted by Anagram, User assumes all liability for loss related to discrepancies between any estimate provided by Anagram and the actual reimbursement from the insurer. User agrees that Anagram is not responsible or liable for any discrepancies between the benefits coverage and reimbursement estimates provided by Anagram and the actual reimbursements User or User’s patients receive.
User will not (a) make any Service available to anyone other than User, or use any Service for the benefit of anyone other than User or User’s patients, (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, distribute, make available, rent or lease any Service, or include any Service in a service bureau or outsourcing offering, (c) use a Service to store or transmit infringing, libelous, or otherwise unlawful or tortious material, or to store or transmit material in violation of third-party privacy rights, (d) use a Service to store or transmit malicious code, files, scripts, agents or programs intended to do harm, including, for example, viruses, worms, time bombs and Trojan horses, (e) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of any Service or third-party data contained therein, (f) attempt to gain unauthorized access to any Service or its related systems or networks, (g) permit direct or indirect access to or use of any Services in a way that circumvents an Authorized Location or User limitation, or use any Services to access or use any of Anagram intellectual property except as permitted under this Agreement, (h) modify, copy, or create derivative works based on a Service or any part, feature, function or user interface thereof, (i) frame or mirror any part of any Service, other than framing on User’s own intranets or otherwise for its own internal business purposes, (j) except to the extent permitted by applicable law, disassemble, reverse engineer, or decompile a Service or access it to (1) build a competitive product or service, (2) build a product or service using similar ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service, (3) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Service, or (4) determine whether the Services are within the scope of any patent.
3. Fees and Payment
Fees are based on subscriptions purchased and not actual usage. Payment obligations are non-cancelable, and fees paid are non-refundable. Quantities of subscriptions purchased can be decreased only for a subsequent subscription period.
User will provide Anagram with valid and updated credit card information. User authorizes Anagram to charge such credit card for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in Section 8.1. Charges will be made in advance. User is responsible for providing complete and accurate credit card, billing and contact information to Anagram and notifying Anagram of any changes to such information.
If any fee amount is not received by Anagram by the due date, then without limiting Anagram’s rights or remedies, those fees may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower.
If any charge owing by User under this Agreement for services is 10 or more days overdue, Anagram may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend Services until such amounts are paid in full.
Anagram’s fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). User is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases hereunder. If Anagram has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which User is responsible under this section, Anagram will invoice User and User will pay that amount unless User provides Anagram with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, Anagram is solely responsible for taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees.
The Services are not intended or designed for use by children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly allow children under the age of 18 to create Service accounts and do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from such individuals. By agreeing to these Terms of Service, User represents and warrants to us that: (a) User is at least 18 years of age; (b) User has not previously been suspended or removed from the Services; and (c) User’s registration and use of the Services is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. If User is using the Services on behalf of an entity, organization, or company, User represents and warrants that User has the authority to bind that organization to these Terms of Service and User agrees to be bound by these Terms of Service on behalf of that organization. Anagram may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity, and may change its eligibility criteria at any time.
5. Users that are Providers and/or Entities Acting on Behalf of Patients (“Customer”).
Any User acting on behalf of patients shall only have the right to use the Services for the benefit of itself or its patients and will ensure that neither it nor its, employees, or contractors will, directly or indirectly use the Services or any software for timesharing or service bureau purposes or otherwise for the benefit of a third party; or remove any proprietary notices or labels, and that each User and its employees and contractors will be bound by these Terms of Service.

User hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Anagram against any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements and expenses (including without limitation costs and attorneys’ fees) in connection with any claim or action that arises from an alleged violation of the foregoing, these Terms of Service, or otherwise from User’s, its patient’s or its contractor’s use of the Services. The above shall not be interpreted or construed to limit the indemnification otherwise contained herein. Although Anagram has no obligation to monitor User’s use of the Services, Anagram may do so and may prohibit any use of the Services it believes may be (or alleged to be) in violation of the foregoing.
User shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining any equipment and ancillary services needed to connect to, access or otherwise use the Services, including, without limitation, modems, hardware, servers, software, operating systems, networking, web servers and the like (collectively, the “Equipment”). User shall also be responsible for maintaining the security of the Equipment, User account, passwords (including but not limited to administrative and user passwords) and files, and for all uses of User account or the Equipment with or without User’s knowledge or consent. User will be responsible for its own compliance with all state and federal privacy laws.

User has sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all User Data.

6. Passwords, Usernames and Accounts
User’s Anagram account gives User access to the Services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If User opens an Anagram account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) “User” includes User and that entity, and (b) User represents and warrants that User is an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms of Service, and that User agrees to these Terms of Service on the entity’s behalf. User may never use another User’s account without permission. The Services allow User to record and store information. User is solely responsible for the activity that occurs on User’s account, and are responsible for taking all reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized person shall have access to User’s password or account.

The pricing during any renewal term will be at Anagram’s applicable list price in effect at the time of the renewal.

User agrees to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Dover, Delaware for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. User agrees that Dover, Delaware is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH USER CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
For any dispute with us, User agrees to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute it has with User after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Dover, Delaware, unless User and Anagram agree otherwise. If User is using the Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If User is an individual using the Services for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require User to pay a fee for the initiation of User’s case, unless User applies for and successfully obtains a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include User’s costs of arbitration, User’s reasonable attorney’s fees, and User’s reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) User may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve User of User’s commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing us from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
22 Export Laws and Regulations
The Services and other Anagram technology may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions. Anagram and User each represents that it is not named on any U.S. government denied-party list. User will not permit any User to access or use any Service in a U.S.-embargoed country or region or in violation of any U.S. export law or regulation.
23. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. USER AGREES THAT, BY AGREEING INTO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, USER AND ANAGRAM ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
24. General Assignment
These Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by User, but may be assigned by us without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
25. Notification Procedures and Changes to the Terms of Service
We may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to User via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by us in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that User may opt out of certain means of notification as described in these Terms of Service. Anagram is not responsible for any automatic filtering User or User’s network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address User provide us. We may, in our sole discretion, modify or update these Terms of Service from time to time, and so User should review this page periodically. When we change the Terms of Service in a material manner, we will update the date at the top of this page. User’s continued use of the Services after any such change constitutes User’s acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If User does not agree to any of these Terms of Service or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Services.
26. Entire Agreement/Severability
These Terms of Service, together with any amendments and any additional agreements User may enter into with Anagram in connection with the Services, shall constitute the entire agreement between User and us concerning the Services. If any provision of these Terms of Service are deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
27. No Waiver
No waiver of any of these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
