  13. Warranty Disclaimers

    except as expressly set forth in these terms, to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, (a) we hereby disclaim all warranties related to the ccdl, or any services, data or other content available thereon or associated therewith, including without limitation the implied warranties of merchantability, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose; and (b) the ccdl is provided "as is" and without any warranty related to accuracy, completeness, quality or that the ccdl will be uninterrupted or error free.

    we make no representations or warranties regarding, and explicitly disclaim the appropriateness or applicability of any content to, any specific patient’s care or treatment. nor do we make any representations or warranties regarding the use, or the results of the use, of any content in treatment. all content accessible in connection with the ccdl is for informational purposes only. data and other content are not a substitute for professional advice on any matter, medical or otherwise. always seek the advice of a qualified health professional. any clinician is expected to use independent medical judgment in the context of individual clinical circumstances of a specific patient’s care or treatment. we do not recommend or endorse any treatment, institution, professional, physician, product, procedure, or other information that may be mentioned in connection with the ccdl.
