Medical Weight Loss Clinic's® Virtual Clinic is providing online information and communication services. These services and programs consist of a series of general and specific information which are provided for the use of individuals who are interested in using our Virtual Clinic. There is no intent on our part to perform or provide medical services, diagnosis or treat individuals without taking a medical history or performing a physical examination. Please read this disclaimer and agreement carefully before accessing or using our services. By accessing or using our services you agree to the following terms and conditions which we have set forth below.
The information contained in this service is not intended nor is it implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider prior to starting any new treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
Medical Weight Loss Clinic assumes no liability for the information and data contained in the service or for any diagnosis or treatment made in reliance thereon.
The links, audiovisual materials, chat and newsgroup discussions recommended by the creators and educators involved with this service are not guaranteed to be monitored for unacceptable use, nor will statements of fact necessarily be authenticated.
You understand that, except for information, products or services clearly identified as being supplied by Medical Weight Loss Clinic, Medical Weight Loss Clinic does not operate, control or endorse any information, products or services on the Internet in anyway.
You also understand that Medical Weight Loss Clinic cannot and does not guarantee or warrant that files available for downloading through the Virtual Clinic will be free of infections or viruses, worms, trojan horses or other code that manifest contaminating or destructive properties. Each user is responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy his or her particular requirements for accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to the Virtual Clinic for the reconstruction of any lost data.
Medical Weight Loss Clinic does not assume any responsibility or risk for your use of the Virtual Clinic or the internet. Providers do not make any express or implied warranties, representations or endorsements whatsoever (including without limitation warranties of title or noninfringement, or the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose) with regard to this service, any merchandise, information or service provided through this service or on the internet generally, and providers shall not be liable for any cost or damage arising either directly or indirectly from any such transaction. Except as otherwise expressly specified, providers do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or correctness, timeliness, or usefulness of any opinions, advice, services, merchandise or other information provided through this service or on the internet generally.

Users agree that any legal action or proceeding between Medical Weight Loss Clinic and Users for any purpose concerning this Agreement or the parties' obligations here under shall be brought exclusively in a federal or state court of competent jurisdiction sitting in Michigan.
In order to maintain an informative and valuable service that meets the needs of the Users everywhere and avoids the harm that can result from disseminating statements that are false, malicious, violative of the rights of others, or otherwise harmful, it is necessary to establish the following rules to protect against abuse.
1. Users may not post or transmit any message anonymously or under a false name. Members may not permit any other person (other than an agent acting on User's behalf and subject to User's supervision) to access the Virtual Clinic, E-mail or forms for any negative purpose.
2. Users may not post or transmit any message which is libelous, defamatory or which discloses private or personal matters concerning any person. Members may not post or transmit any message, data, image or program which is indecent, obscene or pornographic.
3. Users may not post or transmit any message, data, image or program that would violate the property rights of others, including unauthorized copyrighted text, images or programs, trade secrets or other confidential proprietary information, and trademarks or service marks used in an infringing fashion.
4. Users may not interfere with other User's use of the Virtual Clinic, including, without limitation, disrupting the normal flow of dialogue in a chat room.
5. Users may not post or transmit any file which contains viruses, worms, "Trojan horses" or any other contaminating or destructive features.
6. Users may not post or transmit any message which is harmful, threatening, abusive or hateful. It is not Medical Weight Loss Clinic's intent to discourage Users from taking controversial positions or expressing vigorously what may be unpopular views; however, Medical Weight Loss Clinic reserves the right to take such action as it deems appropriate in cases where the Virtual Clinic is used to disseminate statements which are deeply and widely offensive and/or harmful.
7. Users may not post or transmit charity requests, petitions for signatures, chain letters or letters relating to pyramid schemes. Members may not post or transmit any advertising, promotional materials or any other solicitation of other Users to use goods or services except in those areas (e.g., a classified bulletin board) that are designated for such purposes.

Users may not: (a) post a single article to more than five (5) Usenet or other newsgroups, forums, E-mail mailing lists or other similar groups or lists; (b) post to any Usenet or other newsgroup, forum, E-mail listing or other similar group or list articles which are off-topic according to the charter or other owner-published FAQ or description of the group or list; (c)send unsolicited mass E-mailings to more than twenty-five (25) E-mail users, if such unsolicited E-mailings provoke complaints from the recipients; or (d)engage in any of the foregoing activities using the service of another provider, but channeling such activities through the Educational Service or remailer, or using the Educational Service as a maildrop for responses.
9. Users may not violate the terms and conditions and operating rules of any other interactive service, including, without limitation, Usenet or other newsgroups, forums and World Wide Web sites.
