If you do not agree to these Terms of Service, you should not use The Healthcare Marketing & Practice Management Institute 's websites.

Changes to Terms of Service

HMPMI reserves the right, from time to time, with or without notice to you, to change these Terms of Service in our sole discretion. The most current version of these Terms of Service is posted on the site, and can be reviewed by clicking on the "Terms of Service" link located at the bottom of most of the sites' pages. The most current version of the Terms of Service will supersede all previous versions. Your use of the HMPMI websites after changes are made means that you agree to be bound by such changes.


Any information submitted on HMPMI's websites is subject to our Privacy Policy, the terms of which are incorporated herein.

Membership and Billing

You can find the specific details regarding your billing program with HMPMI at anytime by viewing the payment terms on the registration page you used to register with your program. We reserve the right to terminate any account at any time for any reason.

  As a customer of a HMPMI program, you agree that we are permitted to charge or debit, as applicable, your fees and any applicable tax or other charges you may incur in connection with your use of HMPMII's services. As used in these Terms of Service, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The fee will be billed according to the terms on your registration page (the page where you entered your account information). You shall be responsible for all charges incurred through your account as well as for paying any applicable taxes. We will automatically bill your Payment Method for each billing period on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by contacting us at info@healthcaremarketinginstitute.com.
Your right to use a HMPMI program is conditional upon our receipt of payment. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or if a charge is refunded for any reason, including chargeback, we reserve the right to immediately and without notice, either suspend or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all HMPMI obligations hereunder. You are required to pay any amounts still owed to us at the time your account is suspended or terminated. Terminations are not retroactive. If you have an outstanding balance due on any HPMMI account, you hereby agree that HMPMI may charge these unpaid fees to your credit card.
Your satisfaction with this program is 100% guaranteed. However, we rely on the good faith of our members/clients to take the time to fully review our materials and also contact us with comments and questions before making a decision. Also, if you choose to ask for a refund, you agree to return all materials in full and destroy any copies made.

The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience purposes only and have no legal or contractual effect. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with our prior written consent. However, we may assign this Agreement to any third party whom we choose without your consent. No waiver by HMPMI of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
