2. Health information
The Content on our Sites is presented in a summary fashion, and is intended to be used for educational and entertainment purposes only.

Your use of our Sites does not create a doctor / patient relationship. Our sites do not offer medical advice and nothing contained in the content is intended to constitute professional advice for medical diagnosis or treatment. You should not use our Sites to diagnose a health or fitness problem or disease. Use of our Sites does not replace medical consultations with a qualified health or medical professional to meet the health and medical needs of you or any other party. We disclaim all responsibility for the professional qualifications and licensing of, and services provided by, any physician or other health provider referred to on our Sites and/or any Third Party (as defined in our Privacy Policy) website.

Although we strive to ensure that the information we provide on our Sites is correct, we cannot guarantee that it is always accurate and up-to-date. We offer our Site AS IS and without any warranties.

Our Site and, except as described below, all Content, is either the property of HART SOLUTION, INC., or the property of our licensors, third party authors, developers, operational service providers, advertisers, vendors, or users (collectively, Third Party Providers) and are legally protected, without limitation, under U.S. federal and state laws and regulations, as well as applicable foreign laws, regulations and treaties. To avoid any doubt, when we use “Content” it includes, but isn’t limited to, such things as software, code, design, text, images, photographs, illustrations, animations, audio, video and audio‐visual material, art, graphic material, proprietary information, data, databases, service marks, trademarks, trade names, distinctive identification such as logos, the selection, sequence, ‘look and feel’ and arrangement of items and all copyrightable or otherwise legally protectable elements of any and all of our Sites. All product names, company names, marks, logos, and symbols may be the trademarks of their respective owners.

You keep ownership to any and all Content that is yours and if you submit or provide Content to any of our Sites, these Terms of Use do not deprive you or any holder of your or their rights. However, when you do submit or provide Content to us or any of our Sites, you are giving us an unconditional, irrevocable, transferable, royalty free worldwide license to use, display, reproduce, perform, adapt, translate, modify, create derivative works, publish, distribute, disseminate and/or broadcast that.

Content (“license”) and you are representing and warranting to us you have the right to give us such license. If you do not have the right to license Content to us (or if you are not sure), do not submit or provide Content to us.

You may only use our Content and Content of Third Party Providers for your own personal use and you have no right to transfer, assign or use the Content for any other purpose or allow or enable anyone else to do so. Personal use means nothing commercial or even charitable, whether or not money or other compensation or consideration is involved and whether or not it is for your benefit or for someone else. This also means you are not allowed to use, display, reproduce, perform, adapt, translate, modify,  create derivative works, publish, distribute, disseminate and/or broadcast Content that is not yours without our express prior written consent. You may not alter, delete or conceal copyright or other notices, even if we let you download, display, print or share the Content with others. Unauthorized or prohibited use of Content may subject you to civil liability, criminal prosecution, or both under federal, state and local laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, please also see section 5 in our Privacy Policy entitled “PUBLIC POSTINGS” about protecting your Personal Information.
