The Information Presented On This Website
The information presented on the Site is meant to be educational and informative, and is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice. Information on the Site was gathered from a wide variety of sources and may contain errors. DocSpot is not responsible for the accuracy or veracity of any information displayed on the Site.
You agree to not access the Site by any means other than through a consumer web browser and you expressly agree not to access the Site through any automated means (including use of scripts or web crawlers). Unless you have a professional subscription, you also agree to only use the Site for personal use or journalistic purposes and agree not to access this Site excessively.

You are strictly prohibited from unauthorized use of our Site, including, but not limited to, unauthorized entry into our systems, misuse of passwords, or misuse of any information posted to the Site. Use of the Site may be monitored and anyone using Site expressly consents to such monitoring.
When you create an account on the Site, you must provide us with accurate and complete information and agree to not sell, transfer, license, or assign the account or any account rights to any third party. Please keep your account credentials confidential.
Right to Terminate User Access
DocSpot reserves the right to limit, restrict, and terminate your access to and use of the Site at any time, in whole or in part, with or without cause in its sole discretion and without notice. Neither DocSpot nor any third party will have any liability in connection with such limitation, restriction, or termination of your access to or use of the Site.
Effect of Termination
Termination of your access to the Site shall not terminate or otherwise modify your obligations with respect to any liability or matter arising out of your use of the Site prior to such termination. For the avoidance of doubt, although the representations, warranties, covenants and obligations set forth in these Terms of Service shall only apply during the period you are authorized to access the Site (as set forth therein), termination of your access shall not terminate or otherwise modify DocSpot's rights under these Terms of Service.
DocSpot Content License
Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, DocSpot grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable license to access the Site for your personal and non-commercial purposes (if you are using the Site in conjunction with a professional subscription, you may use this Site for professional purposes). You may not use, reverse engineer, copy, adapt, modify, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast or otherwise exploit this Site, except as expressly permitted in these Terms of Service.
No licenses or rights are granted to you by implication or otherwise under any intellectual property rights owned or controlled by DocSpot or its licensors, except for the licenses and rights expressly granted in these Terms of Service. Other trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names and any other proprietary designations are the trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective parties. If you believe that something on the Site violates your copyright, notify us via email at email@example.com.
Users may submit information to the Site ("User Content"). By submitting User Content, you grant to DocSpot a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, adapt, modify, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast and otherwise use such User Content. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all User Content that you make available through the Site. Accordingly, for all content that you submit, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have all necessary legal rights to submit that User Content; (ii) you believe all User Content that you post is either factually true or a true reflection of your opinion; and (iii) the User Content that you post is neither offensive nor inappropriately graphic. If you are submitting a review, DocSpot advises you to exercise caution and good judgment since you could be held legally responsible for damages to someone's reputation if your review is deemed to be defamatory.
You may submit feedback through the contact form and if you do, you agree that we may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to you. If you submit your e-mail address to the Site, you agree that we may contact you.
Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability
THE SITE, AND ANY USER CONTENT ARE PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, DOCSPOT EXPLICITLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. DOCSPOT MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE SITE, OR USER CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS. DOCSPOT MAKES NO WARRANTY REGARDING THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR CONTENT PURCHASED OR OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE OR THE ACCURACY, TIMELINESS, TRUTHFULNESS, COMPLETENESS OR RELIABILITY OF ANY CONTENT OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED FROM DOCSPOT OR THROUGH THE SITE, OR USER CONTENT, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.

WHERE ALLOWED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL DOCSPOT'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, SERVICES OR CONTENT THEREIN EXCEED ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100).
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold DocSpot, its officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting expenses, arising out of or in any way connected with User Content you submit to DocSpot, your access to or use of the Site, or your violation of these Terms of Service.
If we do not enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service, that does not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision.
These Terms of Service and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any action with respect to the subject matter of these Terms of Service will be the state and federal courts having jurisdiction over disputes arising in Santa Clara County, California, and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
