The Ratings constitute confidential and valuable proprietary compilations owned by Healthgrades. You will protect the confidentiality of (and not disclose to any person) the Ratings for three (3) years from the date you accessed such information, by using at least the same degree of care as you use to protect your own confidential information, but no less than a reasonable degree of care. Your disclosure of information contained in the Ratings pursuant to a judicial or administrative order will not be deemed to be a breach of this User Agreement, provided that you provide timely written notice of such order to Healthgrades and reasonably cooperate with Healthgrades efforts to contest or limit the scope of such order. Any breach of the foregoing confidentiality obligation will cause Healthgrades irreparable harm for which there is no adequate legal remedy. In the event of any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement, Healthgrades will be entitled to obtain injunctive and all other appropriate relief from a court of competent authority, without being required to: (a) show any actual damage or irreparable harm; (b) prove the inadequacy of its legal remedies; or (c) post any bond or other security.

Please be aware that we actively and aggressively enforce our intellectual property rights to the fullest extent of the law. Please send an e-mail to info@healthgrades.com to receive additional information about the possibility of alternative arrangements regarding the Ratings.
