As long as you meet these criteria and follow all laws, these Terms of Use, the SDC legal notice and our Privacy Policy, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive right to use our Website, its services and any materials we offer on it.

The Website

This website (including, but not limited to, text, content, graphics, video, and audio) is protected by copyright as a collective work or compilation under U.S. copyright and other laws. Any unauthorized republication or redistribution is strictly prohibited. You may, however, create links to any URL on this website without receiving prior permission.

INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Information on this website may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. Information may be changed or updated without notice. The SDC may also make improvements and/or changes in the products and/or the programs described in this information at any time without notice.

Health-related content appearing in online journal articles, web pages, forum posts, or other areas of the SDC website is intended for information only and is not intended to be a substitute for individual medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Everyone’s health needs are different, and you should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care professional regarding questions or treatment of a medical condition.

Any comments or materials sent to SDC, including feedback data, such as questions, comments, suggestions, proposals, or the like regarding the content of any such documents (collectively “Feedback”), shall be deemed to be non-confidential. The SDC shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such Feedback. For any Feedback that you post, you hereby grant to the SDC the royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, exclusive and fully sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such Feedback in whole or in part, worldwide and to incorporate it in other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed. Further, the SDC shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in such Feedback for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to developing, manufacturing, and marketing products incorporating such Feedback. Any information and material placed online are the views and responsibility of those posting the statements.

The pieces of Information the SDC publishes on the World Wide Web may contain references or cross references to the SDC products, programs, and services that are not announced or available in your country. Such references do not imply that the SDC intends to announce such products, programs, or services in your country.

The SDC makes no representations whatsoever about any other website which you may access through this one. When you access a non-SDC website, please understand that it is independent from the SDC, and that the SDC has no control over the availability of or content on that website (see the note below). In addition, a link to a non-SDC website does not mean that the SDC endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use, of such website. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, and other items of a destructive nature.

IN NO EVENT WILL SDC BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR ANY USE OF THIS WEBSITE, OR ON ANY OTHER HYPERLINKED WEBSITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA ON YOUR INFORMATION HANDLING SYSTEM OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE ARE EXPRESSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

This website contains information about programs, products, and services offered by third parties, as well as links to third-party websites. The presence of a listing or such information does not constitute an endorsement by the SDC of a particular company or organization, or its programs, products, or services.

Additional Note: Legitimate websites (or Internet “domains”) sometimes change ownership. When this happens, the content may change drastically, so that a site offering physics lesson plans for high-school teachers may become a site devoted to quantum. Similarly, a good link can turn into a bad one overnight. The SDC is aware of no tool for detecting this automatically. We manually check our links to outside web pages to the best of our ability and remove those that are no longer appropriate. If you find a link on this website to a page that is crude or offensive, please report it to the SDC Web Director—include [1] the URL (“web address”) of the offending site and [2] the URL of the SDC page containing the link to that site.
