Information contained on the Websites is protected by copyright. Title to the Websites and materials and information contained on the Websites belongs to and remains with Data Based Medicine Global Ltd., its affiliates, related companies, and their licensors. Any copying, retransmission, distribution, republication, or further dissemination of information contained on the Websites is prohibited without our prior written consent.
Certain names, words, titles, phrases, logos, designs, graphics, icons, and marks displayed on the Websites or in the materials or information contained on the Websites may constitute our trademarks or trade names, or those of related companies, their licensors or other third parties. Nothing contained on the Websites shall be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel, or otherwise any license or right to use any such marks or names or other intellectual property rights belonging to us or our licensors, or any other third party. Any unauthorized use of our trademarks or trade names and those of our affiliates, related companies, and their licensors is strictly prohibited.
6. Not providing medical advice
You expressly agree that Data Based Medicine Global Ltd. is not providing medical advice via the Websites. The content provided through the Websites, including all RxISK Reports and Scores, and all other text, reports, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics, audio, video and audio-video clips, and other materials, whether generated by us or by other account holders or third parties, aims at informing you about drug treatments in particular and the context in which they are given, so that you can have a better conversation with your doctor or other treatment providers.
Everyone who provides information like this, from pharmacists or doctors to media outlets or Data Based Medicine Global Ltd., has a duty of care to you. We take this duty seriously by only providing information or comments on context, whether we author directly or take from third parties, that we believe we can stand behind. The information on our Websites may challenge what you find in drug labels, guidelines, or what your doctor says, but any apparent differences need to be resolved through a conversation with the person providing your treatment. You are welcome to bring all materials you find on the Websites to your treatment provider and invite them to contact us.
Medical advice comes from someone who knows your specific case, and ideally on the basis of an informed conversation with you offers a treatment recommendation. Good medical care is specific to your case. The information we, and drug companies and regulators and guideline makers provide is generic. It applies on average. We attempt to highlight the limitations of average information, but helping you decide on a treatment needs responsible input from someone who knows you and can quiz you about your biological specifics and the specifics of your case.
If you have a health concern, you should call your healthcare provider promptly. The content on these Websites is not designed to diagnose or treat a problem you may have. The transmission and receipt of our content, in whole or in part, or communication via the internet, email or other means does not constitute or create a professional relationship between you and Data Based Medicine Global Ltd.
7. Limited warranties
We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published on the Websites; nor do we commit to ensuring that the Websites remain available or that the material on the Websites is kept up-to-date.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law we exclude all representations, warranties, and conditions relating to the Websites and the use of the Websites (including, without limitation, any warranties implied by law of merchantability, fitness for purpose, title, and/or the use of reasonable care and skill).

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will: (a) limit or exclude our or your liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence; (b) limit or exclude our or your liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; (c) limit any of our or your liabilities in any way that is not permitted under applicable law; or (d) exclude any of our or your liabilities that may not be excluded under applicable law.
The limitations and exclusions of liability set out in this Section and elsewhere in these Terms and Conditions: (a) are subject to the preceding paragraph; and (b) govern all liabilities arising under the Terms and Conditions or in relation to the subject matter of the Terms and Conditions, including liabilities arising in contract and/or in tort.

We may transfer, sub-contract, or otherwise deal with our rights and/or obligations under these Terms and Conditions without notifying you or obtaining your consent.
You may not transfer, sub-contract, or otherwise deal with your rights and/or obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
If a provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined by any court or other competent authority to be unlawful and/or unenforceable, the other provisions will continue in effect.
