Terms of use

These Terms of Use (the “Agreement”) constitute a legally binding agreement by and between the nonprofit Psoriasis Cure Now/The Framers Institute, Inc. (hereinafter, “PCN”) and you (“You” or “Your”) concerning Your use of PCN’s website located at http://www.psoriasiscurenow.org (the “Website”) and the services available through the Website (together, the “Services”). By using the Services, You represent and warrant that You have read and understand, and agree to be bound by, this Agreement and PCN’s Privacy Policy.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICES.

Privacy Policy

By using the Services, You consent to the collection and use of certain information about You, as specified in the Privacy Policy.

Changes to Agreement

PCN RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THIS AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME UPON NOTICE TO YOU, TO BE GIVEN BY: (I) THE POSTING OF A NEW VERSION; AND/OR (II) AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF REVISED TERMS ON THE WEBSITE. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REVIEW THIS AGREEMENT PERIODICALLY. You will be deemed to have agreed to any such modification or amendment by Your decision to continue using the Services seven (7) days following the date on which the modified or amended Agreement is first posted online.

License

Subject to Your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, PCN grants You a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to use the Services through the Website. THE SERVICES ARE FOR YOUR PERSONAL AND NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. The Services may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, modified, sold, resold, distributed, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without the express written consent of PCN. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Agreement grants You no rights in or to the intellectual property of PCN or any other party. The license granted in this section is conditioned on Your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

The Service Does Not Provide Professional Medical Services or Advice

PCN provides the Services for informational purposes only. THE SERVICES DO NOT CONTAIN OR CONSTITUTE, AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS, MEDICAL ADVICE OR MEDICAL OPINION. PCN is not a medical professional, and PCN does not provide medical services or render medical advice. Use the Services, instead, to educate yourself so you can get more out of your visits with medical professionals. The Services are not a substitute for the advice of a medical professional, and the information made available on or through the Services should not be relied upon when making medical decisions, or to diagnose or treat a medical or health condition. If you require medical advice or services, You should consult a medical professional. That is why the PCN Website frequently urges you to see a dermatologist or rheumatologist for your psoriatic disease. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES DOES NOT CREATE A DOCTOR-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND PCN. (It cannot, in part, since we are NOT doctors!)

General

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between PCN and You concerning Your use of the Services. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of PCN or by the unilateral amendment of this Agreement by PCN and by the posting by PCN of such amended version.

A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. PCN may assign or transfer this Agreement at any time, with or without notice to You. This Agreement and all of Your rights and obligations hereunder will not be assignable or transferable by You without the prior written consent of PCN. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. No agency, partnership, joint venture or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Except for the PCN Parties and the Indemnified Parties as and to the extent set forth above, and PCN’s licensors and suppliers as and to the extent expressly set forth above, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third-party rights by You would cause irreparable injury to PCN and PCN’s licensors and suppliers, and would therefore entitle PCN or PCN’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief. The headings in this Agreement are for the purpose of convenience only and shall not limit, enlarge, or affect any of the covenants, terms, conditions or provisions of this Agreement.
