Terms of Service
Effective Date: October 1, 2020
Will the Terms change?
We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we make any material changes, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the Solutions and Services, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them, but you may no longer be able to use some or all of the Solutions and Services. If you use the Solutions and Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes. Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
Your use of the Solutions and Services is subject to the following additional restrictions
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 Services or interact with the Services in a manner that:
Infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or any other rights of anyone else (including Predict);
Violates any law or regulation, including any applicable export control laws;
Is harmful, fraudulent, deceptive, threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable;
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 Solutions and Services, or any processes that run or are activated while you are not logged into the Solutions and Services, or that otherwise interfere with the proper working of the Solutions and Services (including by placing an unreasonable load on Predict infrastructure);
“Crawls,” “scrapes,” or “spiders” any page, data, or portion of or relating to the Services 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 Services.
A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Solutions and Services.
What are my rights in the Solutions and Services?
The materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Solutions and Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, 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 Services, 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 Predict’s) rights.
You understand that Predict owns the Solutions and Services. 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 Solutions and Services.
Our Solutions and Services may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Solutions and Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Solutions and Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Solutions and Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Solutions and Services at any time, for any reason, in our sole discretion, and without notice.
What about medical information made available on the Solutions and Services?
You understand and agree that the health information and other content appearing on the Solutions and Services or developed with your input or the input of our Business Associates (defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) as a person or entity that performs certain functions or activities that involve the use or disclosure of protected health information on behalf of, or provides services to, Predict) is for informational purposes only.
YOUR USE OF THE CONTENT IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. The information provided is not a substitute for professional health care and is not meant to replace the advice of a health care professional. It is not intended to advocate the use of one treatment or drug over another – only your medical professional can determine the right course of treatment for you and determine what is safe, appropriate and effective based on your needs. You should see your healthcare provider for any medical condition. The Solutions and Services are not meant to diagnose or treat. Consult your physician before taking any drug, changing your diet, starting or stopping any course of treatment or starting a new fitness regimen. DO NOT USE THE SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES FOR EMERGENCY MEDICAL NEEDS. IF YOU EXPERIENCE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, IMMEDIATELY CALL 911. NOTHING STATED OR POSTED ON THE SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES IS INTENDED TO BE, AND MUST NOT BE TAKEN TO BE, THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE, DENTISTRY, NURSING, OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL HEALTHCARE ADVICE, OR THE PROVISION OF MEDICAL CARE.
Do I have to grant any licenses to Predict or to other users?
Who is responsible for what I see and do on the Site?
You are responsible for all Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Solutions and Services, and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it. You will keep all your registration information accurate and current. 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 Solutions and Services.

In addition, Predict will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. By using the Solutions and Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or service.
If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims when the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
What if I want to stop using the Services?
