You agree that Global Health may impose fees or charges for the use of ReferralNet Messaging which is provided for the sole purpose of delivering encrypted information and data between ReferralNet Messaging registered users. ReferralNet Messaging is provided on the basis that you agree to assume the entire risk as to its quality and performance.
It is intended that all information and data should be encrypted on the sending user’s computer before being passed to ReferralNet Messaging in order that all information and data passing between registered users of ReferralNet Messaging are in an encrypted form, and that such encrypted information and data should be decrypted only by the receiving user. However you agree that Global Health cannot and does not provide any undertaking or guarantee that the information or data will necessarily be encrypted before being passed to ReferralNet Messaging and, in such circumstances you will hold Global Health harmless against all actions, claims, liability, consequences or loss howsoever arising from such lack of encryption.
ReferralNet Messaging stores the information and data in the form received (whether encrypted or unencrypted) only as an intermediary, until the information or data is retrieved by the receiving user(s), or, failing such retrieval, for a maximum of 30 days. Global Health and ReferralNet Messaging do not decrypt or read any of the information or data which is passed or stored by ReferralNet Messaging. Upon decryption by the receiving user, the information and data may undergo some changes, including metadata and formatting changes, however the information and data remain materially unaltered in respect of its textual contents.
Global Health exercises no control whatsoever over the content, quality, legality, reliability, accuracy or otherwise of the information or data passing through ReferralNet Messaging and does not provide any assurance that you will be able to view the contents of such information and data. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required software to view the contents of information and data you receive and to verify the results obtained from the use of ReferralNet Messaging to ensure that they are correct.
B. DATA SECURITY
You acknowledge that Global Health may and does allow access to ReferralNet Messaging to anyone who enters a valid ReferralNet Messaging username and password. Your username and password is merely Global Health’s way of identifying you. It does not offer you any protection or security if your username and password are stolen or used by any party other than yourself. As a general rule, accounts should not be shared and each user is required to have your own ReferralNet Messaging account. You must keep your personal information secure by ensuring that your username and password are kept strictly confidential, and by always logging off if you are using a shared computer. Please notify us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account.
You agree that your ReferralNet Messaging details may be disclosed to other registered users of ReferralNet Messaging for the sole purpose of enabling correct identification of recipients via any address book lookup functionality that may be provided within ReferralNet Messaging and you agree not to use the details of any other ReferralNet Messaging user for any purpose except for correct identification of recipients and that any other use or misuse of such details is entirely at your own risk.
Global Health cannot guarantee that any file or program available for access, download and/or execution from or via ReferralNet Services is free from viruses or other conditions that could damage or interfere with data, hardware or software with which it might be used. You assume all risk of use and you release Global Health entirely from all responsibility for any consequences of such use.
6. PRIVACY LAWS AND CONSENTS
You acknowledge that the transmission of personal information and/or patient data may require the informed consent of the persons concerned and that where you are the sending user, the responsibility for obtaining such consents is your sole responsibility. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and to obtain all consents, approvals, permits and licences required by law or any applicable regulatory body to enable your use of the ReferralNet Services. You agree to hold Global Health harmless against all actions, claims, liability or loss howsoever arising from the failure to obtain the required consents, approvals, permits or licences or any other requirements laid down by law or any applicable regulatory body.

At the time of writing, Medicare Australia is a Certificate Authority, namely an accredited registration authority in the issuance and management of PKI digital keys and certificates, for healthcare practitioners and organisations in Australia. PKI certificates may also be issued by other commercial certificate authorities. ReferralNet Messaging requires the use of PKI certificates for the encryption and decryption of information and data and is capable of using PKI certificates generated by Medicare Australia as well as other certificates.
It is your sole responsibility to keep your PKI certificate and security code secure and confidential. Please notify us immediately if your PKI certificate and/or security code have been compromised in any way.
Where the use of ReferralNet Messaging utilises a non-Medicare issued PKI, you agree that you understand there is no reliable mechanism in the commercial PKI certificate for verifying the identity of the certificate owner or for mapping certificate owner names to a healthcare provider individual or organisation. You agree that any use of PKI certificates, whether issued by Medicare Australia or any other certificate authority, in order to access and utilise the ReferralNet Messaging, is entirely at your own risk. You agree to hold Global Health harmless against all actions, claims, liability or loss howsoever arising from the use of all and any PKI certificates and ReferralNet Messaging or any part thereof.
