2.1 Personal and Non-Commercial Use. The contents of the Services are intended for your personal, noncommercial use.

2.4 Content Posted. All Content whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, e.g. data posted within the InfoMed Special Column or Opinion, is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated. This means that the user, and not InfoMed, is entirely responsible for all Content that he or she uploads, posts, emails or otherwise transmits via InfoMed website. No user shall transmit Content or otherwise conduct or participate in any activities on INfoMed website that, in the judgment of InfoMed, is likely to be prohibited by law in any applicable jurisdiction, including laws governing the the transmission of any libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, or otherwise illegal material, or the permissible uses of intellectual property.
You agree that you will not threaten or verbally abuse other InfoMed readers or subscribers, use defamatory language, or deliberately disrupt discussions with repetitive messages, meaningless messages, or “spam.”
The Services shall be used only in a noncommercial manner. You shall not, without the express approval of InfoMed, distribute, or otherwise publish any material containing any solicitation of funds, advertising, or solicitation for goods or services.
You acknowledge that your submission of Content may be edited, removed, modified, published, transmitted, and displayed by InfoMed and you waive any rights you may have in having the material altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. Submissions made to the Services may also be included in our RSS feeds, APIs, and made available for republishing through other formats.

By making a Submission, you are consenting to its display and publication on the Site and in the Services and for related online and offline promotional uses.
2.6 Responsibility for Submission. You are solely responsible for the Content of your Submissions. However, while InfoMed does not and cannot review every Submission and is not responsible for the content of these messages, IinfoMed reserves the right to delete, move, or edit Submissions that it, in its sole discretion, deems abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable.
2.7 Reference to Content Via Link. The Content can be referenced via a link to the article on the Service from which it originated, where the reader will have access to the first few paragraphs. In addition to the headline, the visible paragraph(s) can be used as well, as long as there is a corresponding link that directs a reader to the original article that identifies it coming from the appropriate Service.
2.8 Re-Packaging for Internal Use. The content may only be repackaged as a PDF and used on a personal or company website with the express written permission from InfoMed, and purchase of a license.
