The Services do not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, and the information included on the Services is offered for general informational purposes only. Some portions of the Services may allow you to submit questions either to us or to third parties who have agreed to communicate with our users. Although we provide information about our products through the Services, neither our employees nor these third parties are authorized to provide medical or other professional advice through the Services. We also have not confirmed the qualifications of any third party who provides information through the Services, even if that third party lists his or her qualifications.

Privacy

Our Privacy Policy describes our practices with regard to personal information that we collect through the Services, including the cookies that we use. The Privacy Policy is incorporated into these Terms by reference, and by using the Services you agree to our use of any information that we collect from you in conformance with our Privacy Policy.

User Submissions

The Services may allow you to submit, embed, display, transmit, or otherwise distribute audio, video, text, or other materials (collectively, “User Submissions”) to or through the Services. When you provide User Submissions, you grant to the Company a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable and fully sublicensable and transferable (in whole or in part) license under all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy and publicity rights and other intellectual property rights you own or control to: (i) use, reproduce, transmit, modify, index, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, display and otherwise exploit such content throughout the world in any media, whether now known or hereafter invented, including for any and all purposes, including commercial or marketing purposes, all without further notice to you, with or without attribution, and without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or any other person or entity, and (ii) to the extent contained within the User Submissions, to use your name, persona or likeness alone or in connection with such uses, without any obligation or remuneration to you.

To the extent not waivable, you irrevocably agree not to exercise such rights (if any) in a manner that interferes with any exercise of the granted rights. You understand that you will not receive any fees, sums, consideration, or remuneration for any of the rights granted in this Section.

Except as provided in our Privacy Policy, we do not guarantee that User Submissions will be private, even if the User Submission is in a password-protected area. Accordingly, you should not provide User Submissions that you want protected from disclosure.

Upon Company’s request, you will furnish us with any documentation necessary to substantiate the rights to such content and to verify your compliance with these Terms. We reserve the right to disclose your identity to any third party who claims that any of the User Submissions you have submitted to the Services violate their intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Services may be subject to breaches of security and that you are aware that submissions of User Submissions may not be secure, and you will consider this before submitting any User Submissions.

We are not responsible or liable for the conduct of any user or content of any User Submission. We do not endorse the opinions, advice or recommendations posted or sent by users in any User Submission, and we specifically disclaim any and all liability in connection therewith. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other users. Exercise common sense and your best judgment in your interactions with others (e.g., when you submit any personal or other information) and in all of your other online activities. If you discover any content that violates these Terms, then you may report it to: privacy@solgar.com.

We cannot and do not assure that other users are or will be complying with the foregoing or any other Terms, and, as between you and us, you hereby assume all risk of harm or injury resulting from any such lack of compliance.

In your communications with Company, please keep in mind that the Company does not accept or consider any unsolicited ideas or materials for products or services, or even improvements to products or services, such as ideas, concepts, inventions, books, etc. (collectively, “Unsolicited Ideas and Materials”). Any Unsolicited Ideas and Materials you post on or send to us via the Services are deemed User Submissions and licensed to us as set forth above. In addition, Company retains all of the rights held by members of the general public with regard to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials. The Company’s receipt of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials is not an admission by Company of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair the Company’s right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials. Notwithstanding any custom and practice to pay an individual for an idea (if any), nothing herein shall create an implied or express contract to compensate entrants for their Unsolicited Ideas and Materials and there is no obligation for Company to pay or otherwise compensate you for any of your ideas or materials in any communications with us, whatsoever.

Links to Third Party Sites

The Services may contain links to other sites or electronic services that are not operated by us or our family of companies. These links are provided as a convenience to you.

Your relationship with the operators of these third-party sites is governed by the terms and conditions and privacy policy, if any, of those sites, and not by these Terms. Therefore, you should review those documents before using the third-party services.

Nor can we be held responsible for the accuracy, relevance, legality or decency of material contained on Services retrieved in searches and/or listed in search results or identified on search results pages.

Disclaimers

Your use of the Services is at your sole risk. The Services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We reserve the right to restrict or terminate your access to the Services or any feature or part thereof at any time. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we expressly disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose and any warranties that materials on the Services are non-infringing, as well as warranties implied from a course of performance or course of dealing; that access to the Services will be available at all times, uninterrupted or error-free; that the Services will be secure; that the Services or the servers that makes the Services available will be virus-free or otherwise free of harmful components; or that information on the Services will be complete, accurate or timely.

If you download any materials from the Services, you do so at your own discretion and risk. We will not be responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such materials from our Services, except where this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through or from the Services will create any warranty of any kind. We do not make any warranties or representations regarding the use of the materials on the Services in terms of their completeness, correctness, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, reliability or otherwise.

In certain states, the law may not permit the disclaimer of some or all of warranties, so the above disclaimer may not apply to you. For more information about your rights, please seek legal advice from the relevant consumer protection body in your country of domicile.

Limitation of Liability

We do not exclude or limit our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.  In particular, nothing in these Terms restricts our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors.  Nor do we exclude liability for fraud or fraudulent mispresentation.

We will use reasonable efforts to provide the Services to you. To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, neither we, nor our suppliers or third party content providers, will be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, exemplary, incidental, special, consequential or other damages arising out of or in any way related to: (1) the Services (including any delay or inability to use the Services), (2) any information, products or services advertised in or obtained through the Services, or (3) our removal or deletion of any materials submitted or posted on the Services, whether based on contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, even if we or any of our suppliers have been advised of the possibility of damages.

We each agree that any dispute proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.

Your sole and exclusive remedy for any claims or disputes involving us that are not waived by these Terms will be to discontinue your use of the Services and to seek a refund of the money you paid to us, if any, during the three months preceding your initiation of the claim or dispute. (Such a refund, in any case, will be governed by the applicable refund policy and the terms of sale specified on the Services or in these Terms.)

THE LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION AND ELSEWHERE IN THESE TERMS OF USE APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN TERMS, THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU OR MAY APPLY ONLY IN PART.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AS A CONSUMER UNDER YOUR NATIONAL LAW ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THESE TERMS. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS, PLEASE SEEK LEGAL ADVICE FROM THE RELEVANT CONSUMER PROTECTION BODY IN YOUR COUNTRY OF DOMICILE.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Company and its officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, service providers, subcontractors and suppliers from and against any and all losses, liabilities, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, arising from or in connection with your use of the Services or our products or services or any violation or alleged violation by you of these Terms or applicable law. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with us in the defense of such matter. You may not settle any claim covered by this Section or admit any liability on the part of the Company without the Company’s prior written approval. 

Jurisdiction and Venue

These Terms of Use, their subject matter and their formation, are governed by and construed in accordance with English law. We both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction.  However, as a consumer, you may rely on any mandatory provisions of the law of your home country.  Nothing in these terms and conditions, including this Jurisdiction and Venue clause, affects your rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of your national law.Except as provided by contrary local law you must file any claim or action related to use of the Services or these Terms within one year after such claim or action accrued. Otherwise, you will waive the claim or action.

We make no representation that Content on any Services is appropriate or available for use in any particular location. Those who choose to access the Services do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws including any applicable local laws. 

Changes to These Terms of Use and to the Services

We may change these Terms from time to time.  When we do so, we will post the revised terms on the Services. It is your responsibility to check periodically for any changes we may make to these Terms. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of changes to these terms or other policies means you accept the changes.

We may also update and change the Services from time to time to reflect changes in our business priorities and our users’ needs.  We will try to give you reasonable notice of any major changes.

Termination

These Terms of Use constitute an agreement between you and the Company, which the Company may terminate in its sole discretion, in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason. If the Company terminates this agreement with you, you may no longer access the Services. Upon termination of this agreement and/or your access to the Services, you will immediately destroy any copies of any Content, whether in printed or software format. Otherwise applicable portions of the Terms of Use survive termination of these Terms, including applicable portions of the sections relating to No Professional Advice or Medical Information; User Submissions; Links to Third Party Websites; Electronic Communications; Disclaimers; Limitation of Liability; Indemnification; Jurisdiction and Venue; Termination; and Entire Agreement, Severability, No Waiver. 

Entire Agreement; Severability; No Waiver

These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy incorporated within them by reference and any policies that we post on the Services, including the Mobile Alerts Terms of Use, constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between the parties with respect to such subject matter. If any provision of these terms is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in place and the invalidated provision will be deemed replaced by an enforceable provision that most closely reflects the intent of the parties.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of that right or provision or any other rights or provisions included within the Terms.
