The contents of our website(s) are protected by copyright and trademark laws, and are the property of their owners. Unless otherwise noted, you may access and use the information and materials within the website(s) for your personal use. You may not change, modify, delete, display, transmit, adapt, exploit, or copy for distribution or sale any information, material, trademark, or copyright on the website(s). You must obtain written permission from San Francisco Center for Acid Reflux and GERD or any other entity who owns intellectual property on the website(s) before you may publish, distribute, display, or commercially exploit any material from the website(s).

We welcome your comments about any of the website(s). However, we will not review or consider any unsolicited creative submissions or suggestions for topics at our events or for our newsletters or products. We hope you will understand that this policy is intended to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings in the event that ideas developed by our staff might seem to be similar to the ideas submitted to us. Accordingly, we must ask that you not send us any original creative ideas, suggestions or materials. If, despite our request, you send us any idea, suggestion or material (“Submission”), it shall become our property. We will not be subject to any obligation of confidence for any Submission, and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submission. In the case that you submit something to us and it is unsolicited, we will exclusively own all rights to the Submission worldwide, and we will be entitled to the unrestricted use of the Submission for any purpose, without compensation or notification to the provider of the Submission. Given this fact, we ask that you refrain from submitting creative projects to us, particularly those that are confidential or personal to you.
The information and materials on this website are provided “as is” and without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied. We disclaim all warranties, expressed or implied, as well as those that are provided in our products and services or to our participants at our events.
Neither we nor any of our respective licensors or suppliers warrant that any functions contained in our website(s) will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the website(s) or the server that makes them available are free of viruses or other harmful components. Neither we nor any of our respective licensors or suppliers warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the services, products, information or materials in this site in terms of their correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. You (and not we or any of our respective licensors or suppliers) assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction to your system. Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. We do not endorse, warrant or guarantee any speakers, products or services offered on the website(s) that we link to. We are not a party to, and do not monitor, any transaction between users and third party providers of products or services.
Limitation of liability
Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, will we or any of our licensors or suppliers be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials or information on our website(s), or any products or services provided pursuant to the website(s), even if advised of the possibility of such damages. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages (including but not limited to lost data), so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. In no event shall the total liability to you by us or any of our licensors or suppliers for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you to us, if any, for accessing the website(s).
Under no circumstances will we be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused to you in connection with your use of any advice, goods or services you receive from a guest speaker on our website(s) or at one of our events.

The information contained in or made available through the website(s) (including but not limited to information contained on message boards, in text files, or in chats) cannot replace or substitute for the services of trained professionals in any field, including, but not limited to, financial, medical, psychological, or legal matters. In particular, you should regularly consult a doctor in all matters relating to physical or mental health, particularly concerning any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention. We and our licensors or suppliers make no representations or warranties concerning any treatment, action, or application of medication or preparation by any person following the information offered or provided within or through the Sites.

When addressing financial matters in any of our website(s), videos, newsletters or other content, we’ve taken every effort to ensure we accurately represent this event and its potential to help you grow your business. However, there is no guarantee that you will earn any money using such techniques, and we do not purport any “get rich schemes.” Nothing on our website(s) is a promise or guarantee of earnings. Your level of success in attaining similar results is dependent upon a number of factors including your skill, knowledge, ability, dedication, business savvy, and financial situation. Because these factors differ according to individuals, we cannot guarantee your success, income level, or ability to earn revenue. You alone are responsible for your actions and results in life and business. Any forward-looking statements outlined on our website(s) are simply our opinions and thus are not guarantees or promises for actual performance. No guarantees are made that you will achieve any results from our ideas or models presented on our website(s), and we offer no professional legal, medical, psychological or financial advice.
The website(s) are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. We strongly recommend that parents participate in their children’s exploration of the Internet and any online services and use their browser’s parental controls to limit the areas of the Internet to which their children have access. We may, at our discretion, require users under 18 to obtain the consent of a parent or guardian to view certain content, and we may limit access to certain content to users above a specified age. You agree to abide by any such restrictions, and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.
On our website(s) we may occasionally discuss mature topics and language relating to personal and professional growth. Users who are uncomfortable with such topics or language should not use our Sites.
