Pure Wellness Medical contracts with Pure Wellness Medical, which serves as an independent, physician-owned medical group who provide a variety of clinical and telehealth services. Through Pure Wellness Medical- Providers deliver clinical services via the Pure Wellness Medical platform to their clients.

For clarification, if you are NOT a client of Pure Wellness Medical, and if you do NOT have a contractual agreement establishing a relationship, then your use of the Site, website and any applications (if applicable) is only for informational and educational purposes, and nothing else.
In the event that any Pure Wellness Medical works with any third party Providers, such Providers are independent of Pure Wellness Medical and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from Pure Wellness Medical. Your interactions with the providers via the Site are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither Pure Wellness Medical, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the Site or Service, nor any information obtained on the Site. Pure Wellness Medical does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures.

Your relationship with the Pure Wellness Medical users (including, but not limited to, your Pure Wellness Medical clients) is directly between you and the patient. The patient will never have a physician-patient relationship with Pure Wellness Medical. Pure Wellness Medical does not practice medicine and offers no medical services. As set forth more fully below, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices, and other interactions with clients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Provider and Pure Wellness Medical is solely responsible for all billings and collections from clients and other consumers, and Pure Wellness Medical shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any patient or other consumer to Provider.
Through its Site, website and any applications (if applicable), Pure Wellness Medical does not provide any medical advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or medical issues associated with Provider, goods, or services offered by Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations. Provider should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and should not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining Provider's compliance obligations under law. Provider and Pure Wellness Medical agree that Pure Wellness Medical is not providing, to Customer or anyone else, medical advice or legal advice.
Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good medical practice. While software products such as the Site and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider can offer clients, many factors, including but not limited to the provider/patient relationship can affect a patient outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Site and Services, and the provision of medical services to Provider's clients. In this regard, Provider releases Pure Wellness Medical and waives any and all potential claims against Pure Wellness Medical as a result of Provider's use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider's clients.
As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the patient care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Pure Wellness Medical harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any patient of Provider, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a patient, which is brought against Pure Wellness Medical, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider's use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain Pure Wellness Medical's prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of Pure Wellness Medical or defect in the Site or Services. Pure Wellness Medical will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement.
If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images, or other materials to us or our Site ("Provider Content") or provide any Provider Content to clients or other consumers, you agree not to provide any Provider Content that (a) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (b) violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets, or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (c) contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component. Provider is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary agreements and consents from, and providing all required notices to, clients and other consumers. You agree not to contact other users through unsolicited e-mail, telephone calls, mailings, or any other method of communication. You represent and warrant to Pure Wellness Medical that you have the legal right and authorization to upload all Provider Content at the Site. Pure Wellness Medical shall have a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable right and license to use the Provider Content however Pure Wellness Medical desires, including without limitation, to copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such Provider Content and/or incorporate such Provider Content into any form, medium, or technology throughout the world. Pure Wellness Medical is and shall be under no obligation: (i) to maintain any Provider Content in confidence; (ii) to pay to you any compensation for any Provider Content; or (iii) to respond to any Provider Content.
Pure Wellness Medical does not regularly review Provider Content, but does reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Provider Content submitted to the Site. You grant Pure Wellness Medical the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Provider Content. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Provider Content. You are and shall remain solely responsible for the content of any Provider Content you post to the Site or provide to clients or other consumers. Pure Wellness Medical and its affiliates take no responsibility and assume no liability for any Provider Content submitted by you or any third party.
21. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement
We refer your attention to the Arbitration Agreement contained on the PWM website, for more details and specifics. In the event of any different terms as indicted herein, and in accordance to our Arbitration Agreement, the terms of the Arbitration Agreement, solely as it relates to the Arbitration, will control.
We will try work in good faith to resolve any issue you have with Site, including without limitation, Products and Services ordered or purchased through the Site, if you bring that issue to the attention of our customer service department. However, we realize that there may be rare cases where we may not be able to resolve an issue to a customer's satisfaction.
You and Pure Wellness Medical agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms & Conditions or your use of the Site, including without limitation, Products and Services ordered or purchased through the Site, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than bringing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in court, however, we agree to cooperate with each other to agree to reasonable discovery in light of the issues involved and amount of the claim. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, but in so doing, the arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter had been brought in court, including without limitation, the law on punitive damages as applied by the United States Supreme Court. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms & Conditions, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Pure Wellness Medical are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms & Conditions and any other contractual relationship between you and Pure Wellness Medical.
If you desire to assert a claim against Pure Wellness Medical, and you therefore elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Pure Wellness Medical, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Pure Wellness Medical should be addressed to:
Pure Wellness Medical, PC
Attn: Legal Department
199 Washington Street
Northvale, NJ 07647
If Pure Wellness Medical desires to assert a claim against you and therefore elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Pure Wellness Medical, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Pure Wellness Medical and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Pure Wellness Medical may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Pure Wellness Medical or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration from the American Arbitration Association at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Pure Wellness Medical receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than US $10,000.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms & Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by requesting them from us by writing to us at the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms & Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope and enforceability of these Terms & Conditions, including, but not limited to, this arbitration agreement.
Unless Pure Wellness Medical and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in New Jersey. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Each party shall pay for its own costs and attorneys' fees, if any. However, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys' fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for payment or recovery attorneys' fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.
YOU AND PURE WELLNESS MEDICAL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Pure Wellness Medical agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
If the arbitration terms and conditions of this Section 21 are found to be unenforceable, then (i) the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, but the remaining provisions of these Terms & Conditions shall remain in full force and effect, and (ii) exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in state or federal courts located in and for New Jersey.

Proposal & Version:
Hormone Replacement Therapy, Weight Loss, & Improved Health on the Quality of Life

WHY IS THIS STUDY BEING DONE?
The purpose of this research is to look at laboratory data, patient symptoms, improvement of possible disease states/medical conditions, and quality of life.

This study will be an ongoing study with no end date. At any point in time the data will be used to evaluate specific criteria and use; laboratory data, patient symptoms, improvement of possible disease states/medical conditions, and quality of life. This study will take part at any Pure Wellness Medical Facility.
WHAT AM I BEING ASKED TO DO?
You will be asked to get a full laboratory evaluation of not more than eighty blood markers, symptom evaluation and quality of life evaluation through questionnaires.
HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THE STUDY?

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING IN THE STUDY?
Your participation will benefit people interested in hormone replacement therapy in addition to people interested in; optimizing health, weight loss, chronic inflammation, hormone imbalance/deficiency, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, diabetes, arthritis, insomnia and fatigue.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF BEING IN THE STUDY?
I understand there is risk of mild diarrhea, upset stomach, nausea, a feeling of pain and a warm sensation at the site of the injection, a feeling, or a sense, of being swollen over the entire body, headache and joint pain.
If any of these side effects become severe or troublesome, I will contact my physician immediately.
I understand that although rare, Bioidentical and Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy can result in serious side effects. Although this is a relatively rare occurrence, anyone taking Hormone injections should be aware of the possibility. Uncommon side effects are much more serious than the common side effects of Hormone injections, and such side effects should be reported to a physician to be evaluated for seriousness. Uncommon and dangerous side effects include, but are not limited to:
Digestive system problems
Menopausal symptoms (for females)
Effects on your muscles and bones
Mood swings and depression
Problems getting an erection (for males)
Hot flushes and sweating
Indigestion or nausea
Before starting the Bioidentical and Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy, I will make sure to tell my Physician if I am pregnant, lactating or have any of the following conditions.
If I receive Testosterone (as a male), there is a possibility that I may become infertile. I was warned about this possibility and have decided to go through with the treatment plan regardless of the risks.
I understand that certain herbal products, vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, prescription and non-prescription medications may result in side effects when they interact with Bioidentical and Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Treatments: Will be determined by the provider.
WHAT OTHER OPTIONS ARE THERE?
All risks and benefits of treatment, non-treatment have been discussed in detail, all questions have been asked and answered to my satisfaction. I am prepared to continue with the treatment plan and I accept all possible risks and complications.
You also have the option of not participating in this study, and will not be penalized for your decision.

By signing the Client Agreement and continuing to use the Pure Wellness Medical ("PWM") Services, you are agreeing to have any issue of medical malpractice and any other issues decided by neutral arbitration and you are giving up your right to a jury or court trial.
All claims for monetary damages exceeding the jurisdictional limit of the small claims court and all class action cases against the physician, or the physicians partners, associates, association, corporation or partnership, and the employees, agents and estates, must be resolved by means of binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in accordance with the then existing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, including the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection. The arbitrator shall be a practicing attorney or retired judge with at least 15 years total work experience as such. The arbitration shall be held in New Jersey or any other place agreed upon at the time by both parties. No demand for arbitration may be made after the date when the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claim or dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitation. The arbitrator is not authorized to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party's actual damages.
A party may apply to the arbitrator seeking injunctive relief until an arbitration award is rendered or the dispute is otherwise resolved. A party also may, without waiving any other remedy, seek from it any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party pending the arbitrator's appointment or decision on the merits of the dispute. If the arbitrator determines that a party has generally prevailed in the arbitration proceeding, then the arbitrator shall award to that party its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses related to the arbitration, including filing fees, arbitrator compensation, attorney's fees, and legal costs.

Hormones are generated by your body's endocrine glands and work as messengers to trigger certain tissues or organs to respond in different ways. Hormones can provide benefits such as: aid in growth and development, support metabolic activity, stimulate sexual function, help with reproductive purposes, and to enhance your mood. The body is extremely sensitive to the amount of hormones in the bloodstream and a hormone imbalance can occur if there is too little or too much of the chemical. Sometimes an injection of a particular hormone may be necessary to support normal bodily function. Bioidentical and/or Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy ("HRT") is off label use of hormones and for symptom relief and taken at your own risk. HRT has many beneficial effects and is taken in the attempt to improve quality of life.
HRT treatments go directly into the blood stream and may come in several forms such as Injections, Creams, Gels, Capsules, Tablets, Sublingual, Inhalation etc.
The common side effects of HRT include but are not limited to:
feeling of pain and a warm sensation at the site of the injection
a feeling, or a sense, of being swollen over the entire body
If any of these side effects become severe or troublesome, you are to notify PWM immediately, and it is strongly recommended that you contact your general physician immediately for an opinion or evaluation.
Although rare, anyone who is undergoing HRT could be on the receiving end of serious side effects. While this is a relatively rare occurrence, anyone taking Hormone injections should be aware of the possibilities and assess the risks. Uncommon side effects are much more serious than the common side effects of Hormone injections, and such side effects should be reported to a physician to be evaluated for seriousness. Uncommon and dangerous side effects include, but are not limited to:
Digestive system problems
Menopausal symptoms (for females)
Effects on your muscles and bones
Mood swings and depression
Problems getting an erection (for males)
Hot flushes and sweating
Indigestion or nausea
Before starting HRT, it is strongly recommended that you have this discussion with your general and primary care physician, especially if you have the following conditions:
Males undergoing HRT are advised of the possibility that you may become infertile, may get testicular atrophy, may get erythrocytosis from an increase in red blood cell progenitor cell production, not an increase erythropoietin. Some observational studies state that you may have an increased risk for myocardial infarction (heart attack), blood clots and strokes but no randomized control studies show this.
Testosterone hormone or Testosterone increasing supplements are not given to treat hypogonadism or any other disease state. It is prescribed as an off-label use to improve symptoms and quality of life.
Thyroid hormone or Thyroid increasing supplements are not given to treat hypothyroidism or any other disease state. Thyroid hormone or Thyroid increasing supplements are prescribed as an off-label use to improve symptoms and quality of life.
Estradiol in men and women has been shown in multiple grade a studies to reduce morbidity and mortality by; decreasing LDL and increasing HDL cholesterol, decrease risk and events of heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, and cancer. There are observational studies that extrapolate Estrogen (not Estradiol) may increase breast cancer, cervical cancer, stroke, pulmonary embolism, and blood clots.
All risks and benefits of treatment, non-treatment have been discussed in detail, all questions have been asked and answered to my satisfaction. The Client is fully informed, advised and is prepared to continue with the treatment plan.
The Client understands that certain herbal products, vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, prescription, and non-prescription medications may result in side effects when they interact with HRT.
We offer a range of therapeutic medications and hormones that are FDA approved but that may have other uses other than their FDA indications. All possible side effects, risks, and benefits of treatment and non-treatment are discussed with the Client.

Purpose and Scope of Policy
Pure Wellness Medical ("PWM" or "Company") has adopted this electronic signature policy ("E-Sign Policy") to conduct business in an efficient manner by permitting the use and acceptance of electronic signatures ("e-signatures") as an acceptable alternative to manual (i.e., written) signatures (to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law) when entering into written agreements with U.S. based counterparties. Pursuant to the ESIGN Act of 2000, an "e-signature" is defined as "an electronic sound, symbol, process attached to or logically associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record and be legally bound." In other words, it is a paperless (i.e., digital) method of executing an agreement or other document with the intent to bind the Company.
This E-Sign Policy supersedes and replaces any prior rules, standards, or policies that Company may have had established prior to the Effective Date with respect to its use and acceptable of e-signatures.
This E-Sign Policy applies exclusively to domestic transactions. We do not extend the right to use or accept e-signatures in connection with any agreement (1) to be entered into with any non-U.S. person or entity; and/or (2) where the transaction(s) covered thereby will not take place exclusively in the U.S., unless prior written approval is first obtained. Approvals must be obtained from PWM directly and in writing for any changes to the terms herein.
This E-Sign Policy applies to every individual executing an agreement or other documentation on our behalf at any time. It sets forth the requirements and guidelines to be followed in connection with our use and acceptable of e-signatures. Please note that while we have established this E-Sign Policy in connection with our acceptance of e-signatures, Company does not, at any time, require any employee to make use of this method in lieu of obtaining or providing handwritten signatures on any of our agreements or other documentation.
Pre-Requisites to the Use of E-Signatures
The following requirements must be met prior to any use or acceptable of an e-signature on Company's behalf:
If any of the aforementioned requirements are not met, you may not use or accept e-signatures on the applicable agreement unless prior written approval is obtained from [contact information/department/person] at [contact phone/email].
E-Mail and Other Electronic Correspondence
Extreme care must be taken when sending e-mails that could reasonably be considered an acceptance of any term, condition, covenant, agreement, representation, warranty, commitment, or arrangement of any kind, as this could unintentionally bind Company to an unwanted, enforceable contract. When in doubt, include a statement such as: "The statements set forth in this email in no way create an enforceable agreement upon either the sender or the recipient hereof." For additional guidance, please contact PWM directly.
While we do not dictate a particular method that must be used for obtaining or providing an e-signature, the party is recommended to take whatever steps are necessary to (1) obtain mutual consent, preferably in writing, to conduct business electronically (most leading e-signature software prompt users to confirm their consent before they sign); (2) authenticate all e-signatures; (3) verify that the agreement executed is identical to the document which the signatory intended to sign and therefore be bound by; and (4) protect the confidentiality of all applicable proprietary information throughout the entire process.
Please be reminded that this Policy should be adhered to in conjunction with all other applicable Company policies

Note that this MEMBER AGREEMENT ADDEDUM is part of every single Membership Agreement executed by each and every single Client who has retained services from Pure Wellness Medical, PLLC, Inc. d/b/a Pure Wellness Medical, PLLC ("PWM" or "Company"). At all points in this, the terms as published in this Member Agreement Addendum control, and unless expressly agreed to in writing between the parties prior to the start of the relationship, must always be adhered to. The terms of this Member Agreement Addendum, along with any and all other terms as published on this webpage, are incorporated into the underlying Member Agreement, and when you see the term "Agreement" being used, it shall include all the published documents on the webpage.
Herein, the "Member" or "Client," for purposes of the Agreement, when singular, either may be referred to as the Party, or when plural, the Parties.
Member agrees to give PWM their complete and accurate insurance information for primary and secondary insurance benefits. Member understands that a failure to do so may result in a delay in payment or denial of claim. In the event of any balance after Insurance, the Member agrees to pay accordingly. The Member understands that the Insurance Carrier may not agree to the usual, customary or reasonable charges for my local area, understands they may not cover all services or might deny payment for services that have been approved of in advance, and agrees to pay the balance remaining on the Member account after insurance has been processed.
The Member agrees that if the Insurance Carrier requires the Member to provide a referral and if the referral is not in place before the Members appointment, the Member will pay in advance an estimate of charges for my office visit or reschedule my appointment.
In the event that some services are not covered, and are considered complimentary/alternative medicine, not covered by insurance, the Member will accept full financial responsibility and agree to pay the balance in full. Member is obligated to pay any balance remaining on the Member's account for any reason upon receipt of a statement.
The Member understands that there is a charge if there is a missed appointment, or cancelled appointment, without a 24-notice period. If the Member fails to provide at least a full 24-prior notice of a missed appointment or cancellation, the Member will be charged $100 for the missed office visit.
PWM does not have a contract with the Member's Insurance Carrier and is generally considered "out of network." For this reason, the Insurance Carrier either may not provide the Member with any available benefits, or if they do, the payment may not go to PWM, but rather, to the Member.
If the Member receives the check from the Insurance Carrier, the Member is required to bring the check and all paperwork to the PWM office and endorse the check to PWM. In the event that PWM does not receive payment in a timely manner, PWM will be forced to bill the Member the full amount, and in some cases, refer the Member to collections, who will charge also for any applicable penalties such as debt collection and attorneys fees.
This also applies to any fees let unpaid by the guarantor on any account. Members are considered guarantors of the fees applied to their account, and are responsible for this balance. Member is responsible for any and all deductibles and co-payments, and in the event the Member fails to pay such fees due at the time of service, the Member may be subject to a rescheduling of their appointment.
Member understands and agrees that if the Member account becomes delinquent, the Account may be forwarded to an outside collection agency without notice. If this happens, the Member will be responsible for all costs of collection, including but not limited to interest, rebilling fees, court costs, attorney fees, and collection agency costs.
If the reason for the Members appointment is related to a work injury or auto accident, the Member agrees to give PWM the case number or policy number, the workman's compensation or insurance carrier's name, address or other contact information at the time of the Members appointment so that PWM can bill workman's compensation or the auto insurance carrier for my visit. If the Member fails to do so, they will agree to pay for all charges for the Member's visit.
MEMBER HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MEMBER HAS FULLY READ AND UNDERSTANDS EACH OF THE ABOVE PROVISIONS AND THAT MEMBER UNDERSTANDS AND ACKNOWLEDGES MEMBER IS GIVING UP SIGNIFICANT LEGAL RIGHTS ON MINE, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE PWM. MEMBER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT PRIOR TO SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY TO REVIEW THIS AGREEMENT. MEMBER IS AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE AND FULLY COMPETENT, AND I EXECUTE THIS AGREEMENT VOLUNTARILY AND FOR ADEQUATE CONSIDERATION INTENDING TO BE FULLY BOUND.
