If you choose, or are provided with, a username, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.

You are responsible for all content submitted and activity that occurs under your account, even if done by third parties who have accessed our Services through your account.
All materials on our Services, including, without limitation, text, software, names, logos, trademarks, service marks, trade names, images, photos, illustrations, audio clips, video clips, and music (“Online Materials”) are copyrighted intellectual property.

In particular, the Content should never be used as a substitute for the advice provided by your physician or other healthcare provider. Do not use or rely on the Content to diagnose or treat a disease or health problem or to delay or decline to seek medical advice.

Averitas is not responsible or liable for any decisions you may make in reliance on the Content.Third-Party Content and Third-Party Websites
The Services may provide links to websites or resources outside of the Services. Because Averitas has no control over external sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Averitas is not responsible for the availability of such sites or resources, and that Averitas does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any Content, advertising, goods, services or other materials on, available through or provided by such sites or resources.

You acknowledge that you are responsible for any Submission you make. This means that you (and not we) have full responsibility for the message, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright.Copyright

You may use our Services only for lawful purposes and in accordance with these Terms. You may not access or use, or attempt to access or use, the Services to take any action that could harm us or any third party, interfere with the operation of the Services, or use the Services in a manner that violates any applicable federal, state, local, or international law (including, without limitation, any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the US or other countries). For example, and without limitation, you may not:
- Make use of the contents of the Services in any manner that constitutes an infringement of our rights or the rights of other users or third parties, including copyrights.

- Use any device, software, or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Services or any activity conducted on the Services.
- Attempt to decipher, decompile, disassemble, or reverse-engineer any of the software comprising or in any way making up a part of the Services.

Violations of these Terms may result in civil or criminal liability. We may investigate violations of these Terms and we may also work with law enforcement authorities to prosecute users who violate the Terms.Jurisdictional Issues
The Services, including all product information, are intended for use only by persons in the United States. Averitas makes no representations that the Content on the Services are appropriate for users in countries other than the United States, which countries may have different legal or regulatory requirements or restrictions regarding, or may require different indications for, the sale or use of pharmaceutical products or information. Those who choose to access the Services from locations outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with national and local laws, if and to the extent national and local laws are applicable. Nothing herein should be considered a solicitation, promotion or indication for any product that is not permitted by the laws or regulations of the country where you reside.
Also, please note that certain software and data files from the Services may be subject to export controls imposed by the United States government and may not be downloaded or otherwise exported to a country (or a national or resident of a country) upon which the United States government has placed an embargo. If you download or use any such software or data files, you warrant that you are not located in, or a national of, or under the control of, any such country, or a foreign citizen of such country.Termination
Averitas reserves the right, in its sole discretion, immediately and without notice to suspend or terminate the Terms and/or your ability to access the Services. Otherwise applicable sections of the Terms shall survive termination. In addition to any termination rights, we reserve the right to take appropriate legal action, including, without limitation, enforcing and prosecuting any violations of these Terms, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Terms.
YOU WAIVE AND HOLD US HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY US DURING OR AS A RESULT OF ITS INVESTIGATIONS AND FROM ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER US OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
We assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by you or anyone else. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
With respect to any and all disputes arising out of or relating to the Services or these Terms, Averitas and you agree to negotiate in good faith and undertake reasonable efforts to cooperate with one another in order to achieve a mutually satisfactory resolution. If you and Averitas do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation, any other effort to resolve the dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding individual arbitration as described in this section. You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all such disputes in court before a judge or jury.
YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS TO ARBITRATE OR LITIGATE ANY DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. NEITHER YOU NOR AVERITAS WILL SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. No arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Averitas and you agree that all disputes subject to arbitration that cannot be settled through informal negotiation will be resolved exclusively and individually through confidential binding arbitration in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award shall be final, subject only to right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act, and may be entered and enforced as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that Averitas may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in New Jersey, necessary to protect its rights or property pending the completion of arbitration.
Any claim not subject to arbitration by this section shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of state or federal courts in New Jersey. The parties hereby waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or that the forum is not appropriate or convenient.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you permanently and irrevocably waive the right to bring any claim in any forum unless you provide Averitas with written notice of the event or facts giving rise to the claim within one (1) year of their occurrence.Disclaimer of Warranties

EXCEPTION: CERTAIN STATE LAWS MAY NOT ALLOW US TO LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR THESE “INCIDENTAL” OR “CONSEQUENTIAL” DAMAGES. IF YOU LIVE IN ONE OF THOSE STATES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION OBVIOUSLY WOULD NOT APPLY WHICH WOULD MEAN THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE THE RIGHT TO RECOVER THESE TYPES OF DAMAGES.
HOWEVER, IN ANY EVENT, OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL LOSSES, DAMAGES, INJURIES, AND CLAIMS OF ANY AND EVERY KIND (WHETHER THE DAMAGES ARE CLAIMED UNDER THE TERMS OF A CONTRACT, OR CLAIMED TO BE CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER WRONGFUL CONDUCT, OR THEY’RE CLAIMED UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY) WILL NOT BE GREATER THAN THE AMOUNT YOU PAID, IF ANYTHING, FOR THE USE OF THE SERVICES.Indemnification

In such event, you shall provide us with such cooperation as is reasonably requested by us.Present or Future Employment with Averitas
