Best Dentists Network, LLC.
Unless otherwise specifically agreed in a writing signed by the CEO of the Best Dentists Network, LLC., these terms and conditions create a contract (the 'Client Agreement') between you and the Best Dentists Network. This website (the 'Site') is owned by the Best Dentists Network and this page explains the terms by which you may use the Site. Please read the Client Agreement carefully.
This Client Agreement governs your use of the Best Dentists Network services and the use of this Site (collectively the 'services'). The Services are: (1) online advertising services; (2) limited exclusive license of the Best Dentists Network's proprietary online advertising services (the 'Proprietary Platform'); (3) Exclusive Community Licenses; and (4) certain support services provided by the Best Dentists Network at its sole discretion regarding the Proprietary Platform.
For best results, the Best Dentists Network recommends signing up for the Platinum Plan as it also helps to promote your website by branding yourself as one of the best local dentists not only on our website, but also on yours as well. The actual membership plan is the choice of the client. The Best Dentists Network makes no promise or guarantee of perspective patient lead volume or quality unless stated in writing in a separate agreement. The Best Dentists Network runs ad(s) for clients by using their membership plan funds to attract leads for a full year. Leads that are generated are exclusive to the client, unless the perspective patient decides to contact another dentist in the community. Ads are designed to run continually for the length of the client's membership representing their preferred community.
i. Payment, Taxes and Refunds
There are two membership plans (collectively the 'membership plan'). Your specific membership plan is listed on your invoice. By starting your membership plan, you authorize us to charge fees per the terms of your membership plan, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the services. You will be automatically charged each year, for your ongoing use of the services. The limited market license fee and all the membership plans fees are final and nonrefundable.
The cost of each membership plan is set forth in the client agreement and on your invoice. Once you select a membership plan, the cost of that membership plan is guaranteed for the duration of that membership plan only and does not include any renewals. Except as provided herein, membership plan prices may change at any time with or without notice.
If you intend to dispute any charge related to any of the Services you must contact the Best Dentists Network in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty days of the disputed charge. You waive any disputes not reported within thirty days of the disputed charge. If technical problems caused by the Best Dentists Network, as determined in the Best Dentists Network's sole discretion, prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of the services, your exclusive and sole remedy is a replacement of the services.
You may be billed fees, charges and assessments related to late or non-payments if for any reason (a)the Best Dentists Network does not receive payment for the services by the payment due date; or (b) you pay less than the full amount due for the services.
The Best Dentists Network does not anticipate that you will fail to pay for the services on a timely basis, and we do not extend credit to our customers. Any fees, charges and assessments due to late payment or nonpayment are liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate or our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments. These costs will be difficult to calculate or to predict when we set such fees, charges and assessments, because we cannot know in advance: (a) whether you will pay for the Services on a timely basis, if ever; (b) if you do pay late, when you will actually pay; and (c) what costs we will incur because of your late payment or nonpayment.
The Best Dentists Network reserves the right to sell your preferred community if you have exceeded the 15 day grace period allowed for membership renewals.
In the event that the Best Dentists Network receives a chargeback from a third-party payment provider, the Best Dentists Network may assess a fifty-dollar ($50.00) processing fee for each individual chargeback.
If you fail to pay the full amount due for any or all of the services then the Best Dentists Network at its sole discretion in accordance with and subject to any applicable law, may suspend any or all of the membership plan.
i. Limited Community License Fee
You understand and agree that the Best Dentists Network uses your Limited Community License Fee (the 'LCLF'), and grants you the exclusive license to advertise on the Proprietary Platform in the city(s) stated on your invoice and Client Agreement. Your LCLF is paid in advance and will be charged annually at the commencement of your billing cycle. You may amend or cancel your LCLF at any time by notifying the Best Dentists Network in writing at email@example.com (the 'LCLF Notice') with a 15-day written notice.
ii. Ongoing Membership
Unless you cancel your membership plan in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org not more than fifteen days to your current membership plan's expiration date, then your membership plan(s) will automatically be renewed as an annual membership plan.
The Best Dentists Network reserves the right to change the automatic renewal membership plans to rebill on monthly, quarterly, or a semi-annual basis with written notice of thirty days or greater prior to the client's membership renewal date.

This Agreement and the relationship between you and the Best Dentists Network shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado, excluding its conflicts of law provisions. You and the Best Dentists Network agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of Denver, Colorado to resolve any disputes or claims arising from this Agreement.
Should any dispute arise under or related to the use of the Services, you must first participate in at least four hours of non-binding mediation before a professional recognized by the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals as a Member of the Academy and located in Denver County, Colorado ('ADR Professional'). The list of ADR Professionals is currently available at www.nadn.org If the parties cannot agree on an ADR Professional, the Professional with the lowest hourly rate shall be the mediator. The parties shall share equally in the costs of the mediation. Mediation shall involve no formal court procedures, discovery, or rules of evidence and the mediator does not have the power to render a binding decision or force an agreement on the parties.
Should the dispute remain outstanding after mediation, prior to initiating litigation you must submit to mandatory non-binding arbitration before an ADR Professional other than the person who acted as mediator. If the parties cannot agree on an ADR Professional, each party shall select one ADR Professional, and those two Professionals shall choose a different ADR Professional (other than the one who served as mediator) and that person shall be the arbitrator. The arbitrator may allow limited discovery and must conduct an evidentiary hearing—subject to the Colorado Rules of Evidence - of no more than eight hours in duration prior to rendering a written decision. The decision shall not be binding on the parties (and may not be entered as a judgment or cited as evidence or precedent), but should be interpreted by the parties as a prediction of the result of formal litigation. Additionally, the prevailing party shall be reimbursed by the non-prevailing party its fees and costs related to the arbitration. Standards and procedures for the mediation and arbitration shall be decided by the relevant ADR Professional consistent with this provision.
Absolutely no lawsuits may be initiated until after both mediation and arbitration are completed. Any litigation commenced prior to completing both mediation and arbitration shall be subject to a stay pending completion of both.
There shall be no right or authority for any claims to be arbitrated or litigated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, other users of the Site or the Services, or other persons similarly situated the Best Dentists Network, LLC would not be willing to provide the Services to you absent this waiver. You acknowledge and agree that you are under no obligation to use this Site or the Services if you are not willing to waive class action rights, and you expressly agree to this waiver.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and the Best Dentists Network as a result of this agreement or use of the Services or the Site. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid, all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.
