The Services are presented for the purpose of educating Users on wellness, lifestyle and disease management topics. Neither INTERVENT nor the Sites directly or indirectly practice medicine or dispense medical services. Nothing contained in the Sites or the Services is intended to be for medical diagnosis or treatment of any nature and especially regarding prevention of cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. The Services should not be considered complete, nor should they be relied on to suggest a course of medical treatment for a particular individual, which can only be provided by a physician or other qualified health care provider (generally referred to herein as a "physician"). The Services should not be used as a substitute for or in place of a visit or call to, consultation with, or the advice of your physician. The Services are not exhaustive and do not cover all wellness topics, diseases, ailments, and physical conditions or their treatment. Should you have any changes in your medical condition or health care-related questions, please call or see your physician promptly. We expect that you will consult with your physician before embarking on a new treatment, diet, or fitness program, including use of the Services. You should never disregard or discontinue following medical advice or delay in seeking it because of the Information, the Communication Services, or use of the Products or Services. The Information is compiled from, and the Products are based upon, a variety of sources, including nationally accepted guidelines of organizations such as the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, American College of Sports Medicine, National Institutes of Health, American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (the "Guideline Organizations"). In no way, however, have the Services been reviewed or approved by the Guideline Organizations. In addition, INTERVENT makes use of scientific advisors to aid in making scientific related decisions, but the Services should not be interpreted as reflecting scientific certainty.
The Services are provided "AS IS" without warranty, express or implied. INTERVENT hereby excludes all implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular use or purpose with respect to the Services.
