PRN ON Demand carries out all verification background checks as required per industry regulatory standards. You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time, to request whether a background check has been run about you and to request disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report and a copy of any report(s) about you. Please be advised that the nature and scope of the most common form of investigative consumer report is licensure verification and employment history. As part of your initial registration with PRN ON Demand, you agree to sign a comprehensive authorization permitting PRN ON Demand, to the extent permitted by law, to obtain from any outside organization all manner of consumer reports regarding you while you maintain an account on PRN Portal.
3.2 By registering for and/or using the PRN Portal you consent to PRN ON Demand checking your professional licenses, and professional certifications using primary verification sources, and you explicitly hereby consent to PRN ON Demand conducting such checks from time-to-time as deemed reasonably necessary by PRN ON Demand.

You agree that your submission of a Service Request Offer does not guarantee that an Engagement will be created. However, if an Engagement is created, you will use your best efforts to perform the Services required for the Engagement, such that the Services are satisfactory to the Customer who created the Service Request.

4.2 It is your responsibility to ensure your continued availability for an Engagement. While you are strongly discouraged from canceling an Engagement you have entered with a Customer, and we request that you cancel an Engagement only in the event of a personal or family emergency or if you have reason to believe that at the time of the Engagement you may be suffering from a communicable disease that may be transmitted to others during the Engagement, you may cancel an Engagement using the PRN Portal. If you must cancel an Engagement within twenty-four hours of the Engagement start time, you must, and you specifically agree to, inform the Customer via the phone number provided in the job acceptance text message or in the clinician portal active job list, as soon as possible.

5.0 Code of conduct and performance
You are required to discharge your duties ethically and professionally as set out by your state licensing authority. Any violation to the code of conduct will result in suspension of your account on the PRN Portal.
5.1 You are solely responsible for the contents of your transmissions through the PRN Portal, and the Portal simply acts as a passive conduit for you to send and receive information. However, PRN ON Demand reserves the right to take any action it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes a information submitted to the PRN Portal by any Healthcare Professional User, including you, may create liability for PRN ON Demand, compromise or disrupt the PRN Portal or the experience on the PRN Portal by other Healthcare Professional Users or Customers, or may cause PRN ON Demand to lose (in whole or in part) Service Requests or Services of others. Your use of the PRN Portal is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations (including without limitation those governing account collection, export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising). You agree: (1) to comply with all US laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States via the PRN Portal; (2) not to use the PRN Portal for illegal purposes; (3) not to interfere with or disrupt networks connected to the PRN Portal; (4) to comply with all regulations, policies and procedures of networks connected to the PRN Portal; (5) not to use the PRN Portal to infringe any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy; and (6) not to transmit through the PRN Portal any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature. You further agree not to transmit any material that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation. Your conduct is subject to Internet regulations, policies and procedures. You agree not to use or reference the PRN Portal for chain letters, junk fax or junk mail, spamming or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process, and will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to other computer systems. You shall not interfere with another Healthcare Professional User's or any Customer’s use and enjoyment of the PRN Portal.
6.1 Compensation and Service Fees. PRN ON Demand collects the compensation to be paid by the Customer to the Healthcare Professional User for each Engagement (“Compensation”) and charges a fee to the Customer for its services, including those offered through the PRN Portal (“Service Fee” or “Service Fees”). Upon the completion of an Engagement and collection of the Compensation by PRN ON Demand from the Customer, the Healthcare Professional User will be paid the Compensation agreed upon per the Engagement, LESS THE TRANSACTION AND/OR PROCESSING FEES CHARGED TO PRN ON DEMAND BY STRIPE INC.(typically 2.99% of the transaction amount plus $0.30), via a deposit into the Healthcare Professional User’s bank account as described in Section 6.2 (Bank Account Information) within seventy-two (72) hours of the completion of the Engagement. An Engagement is considered complete once it has been marked as such by a Customer on the PRN Portal. For the avoidance of any doubt, you explicitly agree that the amount of funds you will receive upon the completion of an Engagement will be less than the Compensation you agreed upon with the Customer by the amount of the processing and/or transaction fees charged by Stripe Inc. to PRN ON Demand, and you further agree that this deduction is warranted to defray PRN ON Demand’s costs and expenses in providing the services offered to you, including the PRN Portal and your ability to be paid in a timely manner for completed Engagements.
DISCLAIMER: IF PRN ON DEMAND IS UNABLE TO COLLECT THE COMPENSATION OWED TO YOU, WE WILL NOTIFY YOU IN WRITING. HOWEVER, PRN ON DEMAND HAS NO OBLIGATION TO ENGAGE IN COLLECTION PROCEDURES OR ACTIVITIES ON YOUR BEHALF OR TO PAY COMPENSATION TO YOU THAT PRN ON DEMAND HAS NOT RECEIVED FROM THE CUSTOMER, AND PRN ON DEMAND DOES NOT GUARANTEE PAYMENTS BY CUSTOMERS FOR COMPLETED ENGAGEMENTS.
6.2 We use Stripe Inc. (“Stripe”) as a third-party payment processor to collect Compensation and Service Fees. Any Healthcare Professional User account information (e.g., bank account routing and account numbers, etc.) entered on the PRN Portal will be transmitted to and stored by Stripe, and Stripe will credit such account(s) as outlined herein for Compensation. By paying or receiving funds through the PRN Portal, you agree to be bound by the Stripe US Services Agreement available at: https://stripe.com/us/legal. For more information about the way we use and share your personal information with our third-party payment processor, please visit our Stripe Connected Account Agreement https://stripe.com/connect-account/legal/full
6.3 Bank Account Information. You agree to enter and at all times maintain your current financial account information (bank account) on the PRN Portal, and further agree that our third-party payment processor (Stripe.com) and we may transfer/deposit the Compensation for your completed Engagement(s), if any, to such account(s). You, and not PRN ON Demand, are solely responsible for the accuracy of your financial account information, including without limitation, the bank account number and routing information. We disclaim all liability related to errors in fund deposits due to inaccurate or incomplete bank account information.
6.4 Taxes. You are solely responsible for all tax returns and payments required to be filed with or made to any U.S. federal, state, or local tax authority with respect to your receipt of Compensation in connection with your performance or delivery of Services to any Customer and under any Engagement. You agree to accept exclusive liability for complying with all applicable state and federal laws, including laws governing self-employed individuals, if applicable, such as laws related to payment of taxes, social security, disability, and other contributions based on the Compensation paid to you by any Customers in connection with this Agreement and/or any Engagement. PRN ON Demand will not withhold or make payments for taxes, social security, unemployment insurance or disability insurance contributions, or obtain workers’ compensation insurance on your behalf. You hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold PRN ON Demand harmless against any and all such taxes or contributions, including penalties and interest. We cannot and do not offer tax advice to Healthcare Professional Users or Customers. If you have questions, consult a tax professional.
6.5 No Circumvention. It is a violation of this Agreement for a Healthcare Professional User to knowingly (a) submit a Service Request Offer with the intention of delegating the performance of the Services to another health-care professional if an Engagement is entered and/or (b) accept a payment of Compensation or professional fees outside of the PRN Portal for a Service Request found on the PRN Portal. YOU SHALL IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY US IF ANOTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL USER OR CUSTOMER REQUESTS THAT PAYMENT BE MADE THROUGH CHANNELS OTHER THAN THOSE PROVIDED OR SPECIFIED BY PRN ON DEMAND.

Because you are an independent contractor, PRN ON Demand will not withhold or make payments for social security, make unemployment insurance or disability insurance contributions, or obtain workers’ compensation insurance on your behalf. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, you are reclassified as an employee of PRN ON Demand, or any Affiliate of PRN ON Demand, by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”), or any other federal, state or foreign court or agency, you agree that you will not, as the result of such reclassification, be entitled to or eligible for, on either a prospective or retrospective basis, any employee benefits under any plans or programs established or maintained by PRN ON Demand, PRN ON Demand’s Customers, or any of their respective Affiliates.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL USER FURTHER AGREES THAT PRN ON DEMAND’S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL USER SHALL BE THE LESSER OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES RECEIVED BY PRN ON DEMAND IN CONNECTION WITH THE ENGAGEMENT(S) THAT FORM THE BASIS OF YOUR DISPUTE WITH PRN ON DEMAND OR FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500.00), AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THIS WILL BE HIS/HER EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND OTHERWISE AS RELATES TO THE USE OF THE PRN PORTAL AND THE SERVICES RELATED THERETO. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTIAL DAMAGES, TO THE EXTENT THE LAW OF SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS IS FOUND TO APPLY, PRN ON DEMAND’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. THIS PROVISION SHALL HAVE NO EFFECT ON THE CHOICE OF LAW PROVISION SET FORTH BELOW.
HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE LIMITATIONS CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION ARE AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT AND, ABSENT SUCH LIMITATIONS, PRN ON DEMAND WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS OR ANY AGREEMENT TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL USER TO THE PRN PORTAL AND SERVICES RELATED THERETO.
Healthcare Professional User agrees to indemnify and hold PRN ON Demand harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, expenses (including attorneys’ fees), arising out of or in connection with: (1) Healthcare Professional User’s use of the PRN Portal and the services related thereto, including any services provided by Healthcare Professional User to any Customer; (2) Healthcare Professional User’s breach or violation of any of the terms of this Agreement; and/or (3) the violation of the rights of any third-party by Healthcare Professional User and/or his/her employees, agents, representatives, or other persons acting for or behalf of Healthcare Professional User to the extent such violation is related to the PRN Portal and/or the services related thereto.
14. Binding arbitration and class action waiver
We hope to never have a Dispute with Healthcare Professional User, but if one arises, it is expressly agreed that PRN ON Demand and Healthcare Professional User will first try to resolve it informally for 60 days. It is further expressly agreed that if it cannot be resolved informally, the Dispute shall be fully resolved by binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). By agreeing to arbitrate, both Healthcare Professional User and PRN ON Demand are waiving the right to sue in a court and to a trial before a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will decide and the decision of the arbitrator shall be binding and final (except for a limited right to an appeal under the FAA) and may be entered as a final, binding decision by any court of competent jurisdiction.
Healthcare Professional User and PRN ON Demand further agree that class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity are not allowed, nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties (all such proceedings are referred to herein as “Collective Proceedings”). Both Healthcare Professional User and PRN ON Demand expressly waive the right, to the extent it exists, in any and all types of Collective Proceedings. Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Agreement or the applicable AAA Rules, any claim that all or part of this waiver of Collective Proceedings is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any instance in which (1) the Dispute is field as a Collective Proceeding and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all of part of the waiver of Collective Proceedings is unenforceable, the Collective Proceeding to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the waiver of Collective Proceedings that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
The term “Dispute”, which shall be construed as broadly as possible, includes any claim or controversy arising out of or related to this Agreement, the PRN Portal or the services related thereto, Healthcare Professional User’s classification as an independent contractor, Healthcare Professional User’s provision of services to any Customer, or the termination of this Agreement, under any legal theory including contract, warranty, tort, statute or regulation, but excluding any dispute related to PRN ON Demand’s intellectual property rights.
The arbitration shall be held in the state of Utah. If the amount at issue in the Dispute is $75,000 or less, the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. If the amount at issue in the Dispute exceeds $75,000, the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. It is expressly agreed that any questions concerning the arbitrability of a Dispute shall be determined by the arbitrator and that the arbitrator shall not have any authority to, and shall not, award punitive or exemplary damages.
Either party may terminate this Agreement without cause, effective immediately upon written notice to the other party; provided, however, that Sections 5 (“Code Of Conduct And Performance”), 6 (“Payments”), 7.2 (“Benefits and Contributions”), 8 (“Confidentiality”), 9.3 (“Non-Solicitation”), 10 (“Intellectual Property Ownership”), 11 (“Disclaimers”), 12 (“Limitation of Liability”), 13 (“Indemnification”), 14 (“Binding Arbitration And Class Action Waiver”), 15 (“Termination”) and 16 (“Miscellaneous”) shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
PRN ON Demand reserves the right to immediately terminate your access to the PRN Portal, without notice, if you have not entered into an Engagement in the previous twelve calendar months or if you are in material breach of any provision of this Agreement.
16.1 Applicable Law. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah, without regard to and excluding that state’s choice of law and conflicts of law principles, and all claims relating to or arising out of this Agreement, the PRN Portal and/or the services related thereto, whether sounding in contract or tort or otherwise, shall likewise be governed by the laws of the State of Utah without regard to and excluding that state’s choice of law and conflicts of law principles. This choice of law provision does not apply to the arbitration clause in Section 14 of this Agreement or to any arbitrable Disputes defined therein. As described in Section 14, the Federal Arbitration Act and the applicable AAA Rules shall apply to any such Dispute.
16.2 Waiver and Severability. Any failure by us to enforce any of our rights under this Agreement or any applicable laws shall not constitute a waiver of such right. If any of provision within this Agreement is found to be invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, such provision shall be struck from this Agreement and replaced by a provision provided by us that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, the original objectives and intent of PRN ON Demand as reflected in the original provision. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement, which shall remain enforceable to the fullest extent under the law.
16.3 Assignment. This Agreement and Professional Healthcare User’s rights and obligations under this Agreement may not be assigned, delegated, or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, by Professional Healthcare User without PRN ON Demand’s express prior written consent. Any attempted assignment, delegation or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. PRN ON Demand may assign this Agreement or any of its rights under this Agreement without Professional Healthcare User’s written consent to: (1) any subsidiary or affiliate; (2) any acquirer of PRN ON Demand’s equity, business or assets; or (3) a successor by merger.

Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of forty-eight (48) hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or upon sending (if sent by email).
