Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly trying to improve our Website, so these Terms may need to change along with the Website. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the Website. If you use the Website in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
What about my privacy?
What are the basics of using the Website?
You represent and warrant that you are an individual of legal age to form a binding contract. If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity).
You will only use the Website for your own internal, personal, non-commercial use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Website is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Website.
Upon purchasing a product through the Website, you will have the option to select a password and user name (“Adeo Health Science User ID”) so that you can store your shipping information (but not your financial information) on the Website for future purchases. You are responsible for any activity associated with your Adeo Health Science User ID and password. Your purchase and use of products purchased through the Website are subject to the terms and conditions that are provided with the products and not these Terms.
You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not contribute any Content or User Submission (each of those terms is defined below) or otherwise use the Website or interact with the Website in a manner that:
- Infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or any other rights of anyone else (including Adeo Health Science);
- Violates any law or regulation, including any applicable export control laws;
- Is harmful, fraudulent, deceptive, threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable;
- Jeopardizes the security of your Adeo Health Science account or anyone else’s (such as allowing someone else to log in to the Website as you);
- Attempts, in any manner, to obtain the password, account, or other security information from any other user;
- Violates the security of any computer network, or cracks any passwords or security encryption codes;
- Runs Maillist, Listserv, any form of auto-responder or “spam” on the Website, or any processes that run or are activated while you are not logged into the Website, or that otherwise interfere with the proper working of the Website (including by placing an unreasonable load on the Website’s infrastructure);
- “Crawls,” “scrapes,” or “spiders” any page, data, or portion of or relating to the Website or Content (through use of manual or automated means);
- Copies or stores any significant portion of the Content;
- Decompiles, reverse engineers, or otherwise attempts to obtain the source code or underlying ideas or information of or relating to the Website.
A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Website.
What are my rights in the Website?
The materials displayed or available on or through the Website, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, videos, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, User Submissions, and so forth (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws. You promise to abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content you access through the Website, and you won’t use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content not owned by you, (i) without the prior consent of the owner of that Content or (ii) in a way that violates someone else’s (including Adeo Health Science’s) rights.
You understand that Adeo Health Science owns the Website. You won’t modify, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, reproduce (except as expressly provided in this Section), create derivative works based on, or otherwise exploit any of the Website.
Do I have to grant any licenses to Adeo Health Science or to other users?
Anything you submit, share, store, or otherwise provide through the Website is your “User Submission.” Please note that if you are a physician, the term “User Submissions” includes information that you provide to Adeo Health Science regarding your patients, whether directly through the Website or through interactions that are set up through the Website. Some User Submissions, such as comments to blog entries, are viewable by other users. In order to display your User Submissions on the Website, and to allow other users to enjoy them (where applicable), you grant us certain rights in those User Submissions.
If you store a User Submission in your own personal Adeo Health Science account or otherwise provide the User Submission to Adeo Health Science in a manner that is not viewable by any other user except you (a “Personal User Submission”), you grant Adeo Health Science a license to display, perform, and distribute your Personal User Submission for the sole purpose of making that Personal User Submission accessible to you.
If you share a User Submission publicly on the Website and/or in a manner that more than just you can view (a “Public User Submission”), then you grant Adeo Health Science the license above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Submission for the purpose of making that Public User Submission accessible to all Adeo Health Science users, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Submission in connection with the Website. Also, you grant all other users of the Website a license to access that Public User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Website.
You agree that the licenses you grant are royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and worldwide. You may ask us to delete your Personal User Submissions, but you understand and agree that it may not be possible to completely delete that content from Adeo Health Science’s records. Public User Submissions may be removed in Adeo Health Science’s discretion.
Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Website?
Any information or Content publicly posted through the Website is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated, and you access all such information and Content at your own risk, and we aren’t liable for any errors or omissions in that information or Content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Website. We can’t guarantee the identity of any users with whom you interact in using the Website (such as through comments to a blog entry) and are not responsible for which users gain access to the Website.
You are responsible for all Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Website, and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it. You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Website.

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Miscellaneous. You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Adeo Health Science’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without consent.
