3.1    Paid Services for Doctors, Clinics, Medicine Providers, Advertisers and Listing Owners

3.1.1    Subject to any terms or conditions set forth on the MCN Website pages describing any paid placement, listing, service or feature, and subject further to any direct written agreement between you and MCN pertaining to such service or feature (which shall supplement these Terms of Use, but not supersede them except to the extent of a direct conflict of terms, in which case these Terms of Use shall be subordinate to such written agreement), you agree to pay all fees and other charges applicable to each paid placement, listing, service or feature you have ordered according to the web page or specified pricing and other terms and conditions, and to comply with applicable billing terms (prepaid or post-paid) in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable (including without limitation, as applicable, that payments will be charged to your payment card) for the applicable time period (if any) to which you have committed according to the order submitted for the placement, listing, service or feature.  Listings or advertisements removed at the advertiser’s request prior to the completion of such period are not subject to a refund.      

3.1.2    Certain listing, offering, and advertisement placement services, by their terms, automatically renew for succeeding periods unless you provide notice of cancellation, as provided by the terms of your specific agreement with MCN (or, if none, at least 30 days in advance of the desired termination or cancellation date).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, MCN reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or terminate any service or feature, or your participation in any service or feature, immediately, although we will use reasonable efforts to provide advance notice on the MCN Website when practicable.

3.1.3    You agree to honor all discounts and coupons issued by MCN to patients in accordance with their stated terms, subject to the terms of the MCN service or feature you have ordered and further subject to any express written agreement between you and MCN.  You further agree to abide by any restrictions, expiration dates, or other terms and conditions stated on or applicable to such discounts and coupons.  These obligations may extend beyond the term of your relationship with MCN, to the extent required by such other terms and conditions.

3.2    Paid Services for Patients, Consumers, and other Website Users

3.2.1    Subject to any terms or conditions set forth on the MCN Website pages describing services or features available to patients, consumers, or other website users, you agree to pay all fees and other charges applicable to each paid service or feature you have ordered according to the web page or specified pricing and other terms and conditions, and to comply with applicable billing terms (prepaid or post-paid) in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable (including without limitation, as applicable, that payments will be charged to your payment card) for the applicable time period (if any) to which you have committed according to the order submitted for the service or feature.  Such Services must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance, and Services not cancelled as provided are not subject to a refund.  All discounts and coupons issued as part of a service or subscription are available only in accordance with their stated terms, and extensions, credits and refunds are not available.

3.2.3    Certain MCN services may require you to prequalify according to applicable guidelines or law in order to be eligible for such service or a patient, clinic, or medicine provider booking.  Because MCN may not be able to verify or evaluate any representations you may make, or any information you may provide, as part of the prequalification process, MCN will be providing the service in reliance on the accuracy of such representations and other information.  Accordingly, MCN is not obligated to provide refunds should it later be determined that you did not actually qualify for the service or booking once the MCN service has been provided to you.  You agree to provide MCN with truthful, accurate, and not misleading information during all prequalification processes and screenings so that you are only obligated to pay for services or billings for which you are actually eligible and qualified to receive.
