As a User of the Website, you may view and read the content of the Website. You shall not copy, download, or otherwise retrieve or reproduce content from the Website. You recognize that all rights to the Website are reserved and that actions infringing upon this copyright shall be treated as illegal activities.

Users shall not add any content to the Website, unless this content is submitted through forms or comment fields designated for such purposes. Under no circumstances shall Users attempt to circumvent the Website’s security measures and restrictions, or to reverse engineer, decompile, disrupt, or otherwise change or cause harm to the Website.

When submitting content through approved forms or comment fields, Users shall never submit any content that is malicious, defamatory, explicit, intentionally untrue, or otherwise harmful or discriminatory. For your own security, do not include Personal Data or other sensitive information in comments, as comments are publicly accessible.

User Data, User Content, and Personal Data Collected

When you use the Website, the Website may collect certain “User Data.” User Data includes, but is not limited to, IP address, location, activity on the Website, and anonymous site traffic information. By using the Website, you accept and agree to the collection and processing of this User Data. You understand and acknowledge that this information is separate from Personal Data and that its collection is necessary for the function of the Website. If you do not wish this data to be collected, you shall stop using the Website.

“User Content” is defined as content which the User submits to the Website, such as comments or forms. Submitting User Content is voluntary and is not required to access the Website. However, if you choose to submit User Content to the Website, you grant the owner(s) of the Website a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual license to use, display, reproduce, and modify your User Content. Please note that some User Content, such as comments, shall be publicly available after you submit it.

“Personal Data” is defined in this agreement as sensitive information specific to an individual person which can be reasonably used to identify the person. Personal Data includes, but is not limited to, email address, phone number, full name, and address. For your own security, you agree not to submit sensitive healthcare information or financial information to or through the Website.

If you choose to submit a comment to the Website, you may be prompted to submit Personal Data. You are not required to submit comments in order to use the Website, and all information you submit related to a comment is entirely voluntary and at your own risk. Please refer to the sections below for more information regarding Personal Data submitted via comments.

User Content: Comments

When Users leave comments on the Website, the data shown in the comments form is collected, as well as the User’s IP address and browser user agent string to assist with spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture shall be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This enables the Website to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding new comments in a moderation queue. However, this is not a guarantee that new comments may not be held for moderation regardless.

User comments may be sent to and checked through an automated spam detection service.

User Content: Images

At this time, the Website is not intended to accept User-uploaded images or other media. However, if such functionality becomes available, Users should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included, because it is possible (although prohibited by this agreement) to download images from the Website and extract location data.


If you leave a comment on the Website, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are intended for your convenience so that you do not have to provide these details when you leave another comment. These cookies shall last for one year.

Third-Party Content

The Website may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Users acknowledge that embedded content from other, third-party websites behaves in the same way that it would if the Users visited the other website.

These third-party websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

The Website may also include direct links to third-party websites. Users acknowledge that these third-party websites are not affiliated with the Website nor are they controlled by the same owners. If you choose to follow these links, you assume the responsibility and liability for such actions. You acknowledge that these other websites are governed by their own privacy practices and other agreements and that you are responsible for reviewing such agreements.

No Guarantee

The Website is presented as-is with no guarantee of suitability for certain use(s), no guarantee of accessibility or uptime, and no guarantee that it will be free of errors, malicious content, inaccurate data, broken links, or other issues.

Although the Website has reasonable safeguards to maintain security and usability, the Internet is by nature an unpredictable and hazardous entity. By accessing the Website and viewing its content, Users accept all liability for such activity and acknowledge that their use of the Website is entirely at their own risk. Users agree to indemnify and hold the owner(s) of the Website harmless and to defend them against all liability in connection with the use of the Website.

Updates to This Agreement

This agreement may be updated from time to time to ensure its accuracy. If the agreement is changed, the new version of the agreement shall be accessible on the Website. By continuing to use the Website after the release of a new version, you accept the terms and conditions of the new version of this agreement.
