Your use of the PHC website constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.

Links to Third-Party Websites
The PHC website may contain links to other websites (“Linked Websites”). The Linked Websites are not under the control of PHC, and it is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Site or any changes or updates to a Linked Site. PHC is not responsible for webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any Linked Site.  These links are provided for your convenience only, and you access them at your own risk.  Information provided on Linked Websites does not constitute legal, medical or other professional advice.

No Medical and/or Legal Advice
The information contained in this website or transmitted to you electronically in response to a message from you is not intended nor implied to constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always visit or speak to a qualified health service provider in person prior to starting any treatment or with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. This website does not directly or indirectly practice medicine or dispense medical advice.

In addition, nothing contained in this website is intended nor implied to constitute legal advice, and users should always seek the advice of an attorney or other professional regarding individual questions or concerns of a legal or professional nature.

PHC assumes no liability for any diagnosis, treatment, decision made, or action taken in reliance upon information contained in this site or any other linked internet websites.

Chat Rooms, Message Boards, and Public Forums

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online — for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas — that information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal information online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Security

The PHC website takes every precaution to protect users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the site, we take great care to ensure their information is protected both online and offline. When our registration/donor/appointment/chat form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL, the best encryption software we are aware of in the industry. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also aggressively protect user-information offline. Only PHC employees and volunteers who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.

PHC and its service providers may automatically collect certain technical information from your computer or mobile device over time and across different websites when you use the website using cookies or similar technologies, such as your Internet Protocol address, your browser type, your operating system, the pages you view on the website, etc. This information allows us and our service providers to recognize you and personalize your experience if you return to the website, to improve the website and the services we provide, and to provide you with advertisements targeted to your interests.

Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, will PHC or any of its licensors or suppliers be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials on the website, or any products or services provided pursuant to the website, even if advised of the possibility of such damages. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. In no event shall the total liability to you by PHC or any of its licensors or suppliers for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you to us, if any, for accessing the website.

Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify, and PHC and all its affiliates, employees, directors, officers, agents, material or communication providers, and internet service providers harmless from any and all losses, liabilities, claims, expenses, and damage awards, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees that arise from any claim, action, or demand by your use of or in connection with submission, transmission, posting, broadcast, or other communication with or to the PHC website.
