American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) registrant names and addresses are proprietary and are protected by copyright.
AAPM&R is the sole owner of the names and addresses and rents its mailing list electronically for one-time use for each approved request. Lists may be provided for a fee to organizations, publishers, and businesses wishing to promote products and services to AAPM&R members. AAPM&R requires preapproval of all items to be mailed and is the sole judge of the suitability of materials for mailing to its members. AAPM&R reserves the right to deny requests where the purpose or use may not be considered in the best interests of AAPM&R or its members.
AAPM&R will not be bound by conditions printed or appearing on order blanks or copy instructions that conflict with provisions of this rate card.
Rental of AAPM&R mailing lists to vendors and outside entities does not constitute an endorsement or guarantee of the product or service being marketed. Unless expressly agreed by AAPM&R in writing, any representation by the buyer(s) and/or his client(s) or agent(s), whether overt or implied, of AAPM&R endorsement or guarantee of a product or service is prohibited.
AAPM&R specifically prohibits use of its membership names and addresses for the following purposes:

Violations are subject to prosecution under federal copyright laws.

- AAPM&R shall not act as a broker, through providing its membership mailing lists, for any product or service provided by the purchaser or their clients of the mailing lists.
- Direct mailing list brokers or other third parties soliciting the AAPM&R membership mailing lists on behalf of a client assume total responsibility for timely payment to AAPM&R, regardless of the client’s payment standing with the broker or third party.
