Acceptance of Terms.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to revoke or suspend your membership to the N-of-One Site, at any time without notification or liability to you or any other person, and for any reason or for no reason at all. While we retain the right to revoke or suspend your membership, N-of-One shall have no responsibility to exercise it or to moderate disputes between members.
The Service is available only for use by individuals who are at least 18 years old. You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are at least 18 years old, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. N-of-One may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Through the Service, you can upload, submit, disclose, distribute or otherwise post content and information to the Service in areas of the site intended for the exchange of information and communication between users of the Site (“N-of-One Community”), including without limitation data, text, personal or medical information, articles, comments and other types of information (“User Submissions”). Through the privacy settings in your account, you are responsible for restricting who can view the User Submissions that you contribute to the N-of-One Community. Please remember that if you choose to provide personal or medical information on N-of-One Community message boards, or in N-of-One Community or other on-line discussions, access to that information is governed by the privacy rules of that specific N-of-One group or part of the website, and others reading it may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without your knowledge. Therefore, we urge you to think carefully about including any medical or other personal information about you or your family in postings, especially sensitive information or anything that might identify you or your family members or allow others to do so.
Rules and Conduct.
Because we respect the privacy and well being of all our users, we cannot tolerate users who misrepresent themselves or circulate false information. We ask you to be a thoughtful member of the N-of-One Community and report suspected misrepresentation. We reserve the right to terminate the accounts and delete their member profiles and User Submissions of any individual who we learn or reasonably suspect is involved in such misrepresentations. However, we may retain any information they have submitted, including their member profile, for our records.
It is your responsibility to behave in a considerate and responsible manner toward other users. In addition, you may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose.
By way of example, and not as a limitation, you shall not (and shall not permit any third party to) either (a) take any action or (b) upload, download, post, submit or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any content on or through the Service, that:
infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, right of publicity or other right of any other person or entity;
is unlawful, threatening, harmful, vulgar, hateful, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, tortious, obscene, offensive, profane or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;
harms minors or any member of the N-of-One Community in any way;
constitutes unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, junk or bulk e-mail (“spamming”);
forges headers or otherwise manipulates identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any Content transmitted through the Service;
involves uploading, posting, emailing, transmitting or otherwise making available any Content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under any contractual or fiduciary relationship (such as inside information, proprietary and confidential information, or anything learned or disclosed as part of an employment relationship or under a nondisclosure agreement);
involves uploading, posting, emailing, transmitting or otherwise making available any Content that advocates the violation of any local, state, federal, or international law;

Additionally, you shall not: (i) take any action that imposes or may impose (as determined by N-of-One in its sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on N-of-One’s (or its third party providers’) infrastructure; (ii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Service or any activities conducted on the Service; (iii) bypass any privacy settings or measures N-of-One may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service (or other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to the Service); (iv) run Maillist, Listserv, any form of auto-responder or “spam” on the Service; or (v) use manual or automated software, devices, or other processes to “crawl” or “spider” any page of the Site.

You shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations.
You are also responsible for the truthfulness and accuracy of your N-of-One profile. You may not intentionally misrepresent yourself in your profile. Misrepresentation and other acts that N-of-One determines, in its sole discretion, are intended to deceive or prey upon other members are grounds for expulsion from the N-of-One Community and may lead, at N-of-One’s sole discretion, to the involvement of the appropriate law enforcement agency or department.
Fees and Payment.
N-of-One reserves the right to require payment of fees for certain features of the Service. Should you elect to subscribe to such features, you shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Site in connection with such features. N-of-One reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon ten (10) days prior notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Site. Use of the Service by you following such notification constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.

You agree that because of the unique nature of the N-of-One Community and its Content, and the proprietary rights of N-of-One, your breach of these provisions would irreparably harm N-of-One or its licensors and that monetary damages would be inadequate compensation.

Under no circumstances will N-of-One be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred in connection with use of or exposure to any Content posted, emailed, accessed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.
