Provider hereby authorizes QHR to charge Provider a recurring subscription fee on the recurring term and at the then current rate for the Software set out in the Registration Confirmation, and any other charges Provider may incur in connection with the use of the Software via the agreed upon method of payment as set out in the Registration Confirmation. In the case where QHR has an agreement with an Assigned Organization (“Assigned Organization Agreement”) under the terms of which Provider is provided access to the Software and the payment is to be made by the Assigned Organization, then the payment terms are set out in the Assigned Organization Agreement.

5. Automatic Billing. QHR automatically processes payments and invoices for any monies owed to QHR under this agreement via the payment methods outlined in the Registration Confirmation or in any Assigned Organization Agreement.

7. Billing Commencement Date. In the event Provider's registration began on a day not contained in a future billing period, QHR may bill Provider on a day earlier in the applicable future billing period or such other day as QHR deems appropriate. For example, if Provider's registration started on January 1st with monthly billing periods, Provider’s next payment date is likely to be February 1st, and Provider's credit card would be billed on that date.

8. Authorization. Provider hereby authorizes QHR to charge Provider (including, where applicable, Provider’s credit card) at the payment frequencies set out in the Registration Confirmation.

Provider is solely responsible for the supervision and direction of the Services provided and shall be responsible for the manner in which the Services are performed, for the method employed in doing the same and for all acts and things done in the performance of the foregoing. Nothing contained in this Agreement and the relationship created between the parties hereby shall, directly or indirectly, constitute the employees, contractors and personnel of Provider to be an employee, joint venturer, agent or servant of QHR and further, nothing herein shall operate or be construed to relieve Provider of any duties or obligations imposed upon it as an independent contractor.
2. Tax. Provider is solely responsible for any and all tax to be paid, remitted or deducted related to the amounts Provider obtains under this Agreement using the Software and/or providing the Services. QHR is not responsible to deduct or remit any taxes on behalf of Provider for any amounts obtained by Provider as a result of the Services facilitated through this Agreement.
