USE OF THE PROVIDER LOCATOR
The Provider Locator is provided by Cynosure as a reference of demographic and professional information about owners of certain Cynosure products in the United States and Canada only (“Providers”) who have agreed to participate in the Provider Locator. Providers are not paid and are not charged to be listed in this directory, and the Provider Locator is free of charge to User. User expressly agrees that participation in, use of, or reliance on any data provided through the Provider Locator is at User’s own risk. The search results that User receives are determined by the criteria User has entered into this Provider Locator’s search function as of the date entered. Cynosure makes no representations or guarantees that that Provider Locator or its content will be error free, comprehensive, up-to-date, accurate, or reliable. Provider Locator may include viruses that may infect User’s computer equipment and Cynosure assumes no responsibility for any damages that may result from such viruses. Cynosure is under no obligation to compensate User or Provider for downtime, interruption, or inaccessibility of the Provider Locator.
Cynosure has not vetted the qualifications, experience, or competency of any provider in the Provider Locator. Provider data made available through the Provider Locator is in no way an endorsement of a provider or a guarantee or attestation of the qualifications of a provider, or any certification of compliance with laws, regulations, or rules of the provider’s ability to provide any services or use Cynosure devices.
User agrees and accepts that User assumes sole and full responsibility for communications with any Provider, and Cynosure in no event shall be liable to Provider, User or to anyone for any decision made or action taken in reliance on Provider Locator information.
Cynosure shall not be liable for any act or omission, including negligent acts or omissions, by any of the Providers or any of their employees or agents, who may, from time to time, provide services to User.
Any decisions made by a Provider concerning the appropriateness or course of treatment or whether any service or supply is medically necessary shall be deemed to be made solely by that Provider, not Cynosure. Cynosure does not exercise any control or direction over the medical judgment or clinical decisions of any Provider listed in this directory, nor does it interfere with the relationship between User and any Provider. Providers listed in the Provider Locator do not necessarily reflect the extent of Cynosure’s network of customers. There may be other providers who are not listed in the Provider Locator who are part of Cynosure’s network of customers and the availability of any providers listed herein is subject to change without notice. Without limiting the foregoing, Cynosure assumes no responsibility or liability for any claims, suits, losses, injuries, or damages in connection with, arising, from, in reliance of, or which may result from the use of the Provider Locator or a Provider even if so advised. Provider information may change and Cynosure may be unaware of such changes. Therefore changes may not be reflected in the data presented in the Provider Locator.
