Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. By using the Service, you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to all of these Terms, do not use the Service.
You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with TAV, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. You must provide us with accurate information, including your real name, when you create your account on TAV.
We may, without prior notice, change the Service; stop providing the Service or features of the Service, to you or to users generally; or create usage limits for the Service.
When registering for the Services, you will establish a personal account with your own unique password. You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Service and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You agree to maintain the security of your user identification, password and other confidential information relating to the use of your TAV account. You are responsible for taking all reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized person shall have access to your TAV passwords or accounts. It is your sole responsibility to (1) control the dissemination and use of passwords; (2) authorize, monitor, and control access to and use of your TAV account and password; (3) promptly inform TAV of any need to deactivate a password. You grant TAV the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store, and use your information in connection with the Services.

By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Service, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, create derivative works from, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).
You agree that this license includes the right for other users of the Service to modify your Content, and for TAV to make your Content available to others for the publication, distribution, syndication, or broadcast of such Content on other media and services, subject to our terms and conditions for such Content use. Such additional uses by TAV or others may be made with no compensation paid to you with respect to the Content that you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Service.
We may modify, adapt, or create derivative works from your Content in order to transmit, display or distribute it over computer networks and in various media and/or make changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to any requirements or limitations of any networks, devices, services or media.
Additionally, by uploading content to the site, you warrant, represent and agree that you have the right to grant TAV the license described above. You are prohibited from using the Services to (i) violate any local, state, national or international laws; or (ii) include in messages advertisements or solicitations of business.

Neither TAV nor the Contributors are liable for any personal injury, including death, caused by your use or misuse of the Site or Content.
Content posted by Medical Contributors is not intended to be medical advice or instructions for medical diagnosis or treatment, and no physician-patient relationship is, or is intended to be, created by Content provided by Medical Contributors.
