Last Updated: January 13, 2017

Welcome to Health and Fitness History. Your access to and use of this website and its services is subject to the terms of use detailed on this page. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use this website or its services. Any access to or use of this website and its services will constitute acceptance of these terms.

Our privacy policy is incorporated into and collectively forms these terms of use. It is detailed on a separate page purely for organizational purposes. Because our privacy policy is a portion of our terms of use, your access to and use of this website will constitute acceptance of the privacy policy as part of these terms of use.

Within these terms of use, all text contained within brackets […] is not a part of this otherwise legally binding document. These bracketed sections are reserved for layman explanations and side notes in plain English, at our discretion, and are not legally binding in any form.

[If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about these terms of use, please use our contact form.]

I. INFORMATION

A. Use of Information

The content on this website (including, but not limited to, text, images, and videos) is offered purely for educational purposes. None of the information on this website should be used to supplement or substitute any professional medical advice, diagnoses, prescriptions, or treatments. Health and Fitness History will not be held responsible or liable for any kind of use of this information.

B. Accuracy of Information

Though we strive ensure that the content on this website is accurate, Health and Fitness History will not be held responsible or liable for the accuracy of any information transmitted or made available via this website, including errors or omissions in information. In addition, and without limiting the terms detailed under Section IV, Health and Fitness History will not be held responsible or liable for the accuracy of any third-party content on the website (including, but not limited to, print and electronic resources cited in our articles).

[If you believe that a page on this website contains an error or omission in information that should be corrected, please use our contact form. Please note that this does not guarantee that any changes will be made.]

II. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

A. Ours

This website and all of its original content (including, but not limited to, text, images, graphics, videos, icons, logos, data, software, and applications) are owned by Health and Fitness History and are protected by international copyright, trademark, and any other intellectual property and proprietary rights laws. Except as explicitly exempted under Section III, Health and Fitness History does not grant any entity express or implied rights to any of this content for any purpose.

[If you believe another party has violated Health and Fitness History’s intellectual property rights and would like to inform us, please use our contact form.]

B. Others’

Health and Fitness History respects the intellectual property of other parties. We try to ensure that all use of third-party content (including, but not limited to, images, videos, and text) on this website adheres to all intellectual property and proprietary rights laws. When any article on this website features a non-public-domain image, its usage rights and attribution can be found within its linked gallery page (found by simply clicking on the image). In the case that there is no gallery page for the image, its usage rights and attribution can be found in the caption immediately below the image.

[If you believe that there is a violation of any intellectual property or proprietary rights laws anywhere on this website, please use our contact form, making sure to include a link to the content in question. We will look into the issue and correct any potential infringements as necessary.]

III. PERMITTED USE

A. Noncommercial

Health and Fitness History allows the use of the original content on this website for personal, educational, and noncommercial purposes on the following terms:

  1. You must cite Health and Fitness History as the source and, whenever possible, provide a do-follow link to the page(s) from which the content was taken. The use of no-follow links where do-follow links are possible will be considered a violation of these terms.

    [Naturally, linking isn’t possible in print media such as research papers, and is not required in such cases.]

  2. When using any non-public-domain, third-party content featured anywhere on this website, you must properly attribute it to the original author (for example, when using a non-public-domain image featured in one of our articles). You alone are responsible for confirming the usage rights of any third-party content.

    [You are free to format this attribution any way you like, as long as it complies with the relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights laws.]

  3. If you are adding any content (including, but not limited to, text and images) that is not featured in the original content’s format on this website, you must make it clear that it is your own addition not featured in the original content, and you must not leave the implication that we endorse its use.

    [For example, if you cite a paragraph from one of our articles and insert your own image next to the quote, include in the image caption something along the lines of “image not featured in original article.”]

[When using our original content for personal or educational purposes, such as research papers, feel free to format the content however you would like. You can move or remove images, insert other images or content (adhering to Section III, Subsection A, Clauses 2 and 3), and reformat text (but not alter quoted text) as long as none of it violates our terms of use.]

[If you have any questions about personal or educational use of our original content, please use our contact form. Our goal is to further education of health and fitness practices throughout history, so we’ll try to help in any way we can.]

B. Commercial

If you wish to use any of the original content on this website for commercial purposes (including, but not limited to, publication, merchandising, sales, advertising, and promotion of services), you must obtain prior written permission from Health and Fitness History. If you obtain prior written permission, you may only use the content explicitly identified in writing as permitted for use. Any commercial use of any original content on this website without prior written permission is in direct violation of our terms of use.

[To send a request for commercial use of any content on this website, please use our contact form.]

IV. THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND SERVICES

A. Risks

This website contains content and links to and from third-party websites and services not owned or controlled by Health and Fitness History [for example, links to resources cited in our articles]. When you access any third-party content, you accept the risks in doing so, and acknowledge that Health and Fitness History will not be held responsible for these risks, nor be held liable for any resultant damages. Such risks include, but are not limited to, exposure to malware or offensive content, attempted phishing, interrupted or untimely service, and inadequate security.

[We try to ensure that we only link to safe, trustworthy websites, but with so many factors to take into account, we simply can’t ensure that these websites will be risk-free. We urge you to exercise caution when browsing unfamiliar websites, keeping wary of any security risks and potential attacks.]

B. Content

Health and Fitness History has no control over, nor will be held responsible for, any content on any third-party website or service. Such content includes, but is not limited to, data, software, applications, information, practices, opinions, terms of use, privacy policies, and intellectual property policies. Health and Fitness History provides these links as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link to third-party content does not denote that we endorse the entity or its affiliates in any way. Just as you are familiarizing yourself with this website’s terms of use, we encourage you to do so when accessing or using any third-party website or service.

C. Changes

As Health and Fitness History has no control over third-party content, some of the outbound links on this website may lead to content that has been changed or removed. We will not be held responsible to monitor any third-party content for such cases. If you believe that third-party content linked to by this website has been changed or removed, we encourage you to use a website archival service to access archived versions of the third-party content. (Such website archival services qualify as third-party websites and services, and also fall under these terms in Section IV as such.)

[If you believe that third-party content linked to by this website has been changed or removed, please inform us via our contact form. We may look into replacing or removing the outbound link, though this is not a guarantee that any action will be taken.]

V. PRIVACY

A. Indemnification

Any information provided by you or collected by us in your use of this website will be used in the manner described in our terms of use and privacy policy. As stated above, our privacy policy is incorporated into and collectively forms these terms of use. Without limiting the privacy policy, by using this website and its services you acknowledge that Health and Fitness History cannot guarantee the security or privacy of your information. We will not be held responsible or liable for any lack of security or privacy you experience while using this website or its services.

[For example, browsing the internet on an unsecured Wi-Fi network can put your privacy at risk. Some of these factors are beyond our control, so we encourage you to stay up-to-date on online security measures and always take proper precautions when browsing any website.]

This website and its services are offered on an “as is” and “as available” basis. We disavow all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including guarantees that our website and its services will be secure, timely, uninterrupted, expedient, accurate, or free of errors.

B. Indemnification

By your use of this website and its services and the acceptance of our terms of use therein, you release Health and Fitness History and its owners, directors, employees, and other agents of any position from any claims and damages, known and unknown, resulting in the access and/or use of this website and its services directly or indirectly, including, but not limited to, the access of third-party content linked to by this website. Any and all content (including, but not limited to, any form of data) downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of this website and its services is done so at your own risk, and you release Health and Fitness History of responsibility and liability of any resultant damages or loss of data related to the downloading of such content.

C. Alteration

You acknowledge that, to the fullest extent of applicable law, Health and Fitness History has no responsibility to store, delete, alter, or transmit any services or content (including, but not limited to, text, images, video, links, and any other form of data) published by, maintained by, owned by, or otherwise related to this company and this website and its services.

D. Changes to Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

As we improve our website and its services, the terms of use and privacy policy may be changed from time to time. We reserve the right to do so at any time and for any reason. Any changes made to the terms of use or privacy policy will go into full effect the day they are published. The most recent update will be reflected at the top of their respective pages.

E. Isolation of Non-Applicable Terms

Some states and jurisdictions do not allow some of the disclaimers and terms in these terms of use. In such cases, the disallowed portion of the terms of use will be disregarded in isolation and will not affect the legal authority of any other portion of these terms in any way.
