Collectively, the Websites are referred to in these Terms as the “Services.”

BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND OUR PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES.

We may revise and update these Terms at any time and without notice. Your continued use of the Services will constitute your acceptance of these changes and the current version of these Terms.

THE SERVICES DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE

The information and content in the Services, including but not limited to text, graphics, images, videos, and other material contained in the Services is for informational purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for professional medical or legal advice, help, diagnosis or treatment. Nothing contained in the Services is intended to constitute a medical diagnosis or treatment, or legal advice. Nothing in the Services is intended as a recommendation or endorsement of any specific test, product, procedure, opinion, or other information that may be mentioned in the Services. Reliance on any information appearing in the Services, including but not limited to information provided by MSMLP personnel or by other users of the Services, is solely at your own risk.

MSMLP does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or usefulness of the opinions, advice, content, services or other information provided through the Services or on the Internet generally.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND RESTRICTIONS

MSMLP hereby grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited, revocable right to use the Services for personal, non-commercial purposes only and in accordance with these Terms. You agree not to use the Services for any other purpose, including but not limited to any commercial purpose, without the prior written consent of MSMLP. For example, you may not (and may not direct or authorize any other party to), (1) co-brand any Website, App, or any portion thereof, (2) frame any Website or any portion thereof (whereby the Website will appear on the same screen with a portion of another website), or (3) link any Website to any other website. “Co-brand” means to display a name, logo, trademark or other means of attribution or identification of any party in such a manner as is reasonably likely to give a user of the Services the impression that such party has the right to display, publish, or distribute the Services or any content accessible within the Services. You agree to cooperate with MSMLP in causing any unauthorized co-branding, framing or linking immediately to cease.

The material and content accessible within the Services and any other website or mobile application owned, operated, licensed, or controlled by MSMLP (collectively, the “Content”) is the intellectual property and proprietary information of MSMLP or the party that provided the Content to MSMLP (as applicable). All title to, ownership of, and rights in and to such Consent is, and at all times shall remain, the sole and exclusive property of MSMLP and its content providers (as the case may be). Accordingly, you may not copy, distribute, republish, upload, post, transmit, or create derivative works of the Content in any way without the prior written consent of MSMLP, except that you may print out a copy of the Content solely for your personal use. In doing so, you may not remove or alter, or cause or direct to be removed or altered, any copyright, trademark, service mark, trade name, or any other proprietary notice or legend appearing on the Services or on any of the Content.

You may not use any MSMLP or MOUNT SINAI names or trademarks in any advertising or publicity, or otherwise to indicate or imply sponsorship of or affiliation with any product or service, without the prior written consent of MSMLP or MOUNT SINAI, as applicable.

Hyperlinks to such third-party websites are provided as a service to users and are not sponsored by or affiliated with the Services or with MSMLP. MSMLP has not reviewed any or all of such websites and is not responsible for the content of those websites. Hyperlinks are to be accessed at your own risk, and MSMLP makes no representations or warranties about the content, completeness, or accuracy of these hyperlinks or the sites hyperlinked to the Services. Further, the inclusion of any hyperlink to a third-party website does not necessarily imply endorsement by MSMLP of that website or the material or content contained therein.
