All information, content, and materials in Services are for informational purposes only and are not intended to serve as a substitute for the consultation, diagnosis, and/or medical treatment of a qualified physician or healthcare provider.
LOVINTEL does not provide any medical advice (including but not limited to mental or behavioral health, therapy, psychotherapy, relationship therapy or counseling) in Services, and the information should not be so construed or used. Using and/or accessing Services and/or providing personal or medical information to LOVINTEL does not create a physician-patient relationship between you and LOVINTEL. Nothing contained in Services is intended to replace the services of a licensed, trained physician or health professional or to be a substitute for medical advice of a physician or a trained health professional licensed in your state. You should not rely on anything contained in Services, and you should consult a physician licensed in your state in all matters relating to your health. You hereby agree that you shall not make any health or medical related decision based in whole or in part on anything contained in Services.
If you have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
The information provided in Services is not a substitute for medical or professional care, and you should not use the information in place of a visit, call, consultation or advice of your physician or other healthcare provider. LOVINTEL disclaims any liability based on information provided in Services or via references or links to any third-party websites or other resources, which may contain, without limitation, any medical information.
If you believe you have any health problem, or if you have any questions regarding your health or a medical condition, you should promptly consult your physician or other healthcare provider. Never rely on information in Services in place of seeking medical or professional advice, and never disregard medical or professional advice, or delay seeking it, because of any information you received in Services. You should also ask your physician or other healthcare provider to assist you in interpreting any information in Services, or in applying the information to your individual case.
Medical information changes constantly, therefore the information provided in Services should not be considered current, complete or exhaustive, nor should you rely on such information to recommend a course of treatment for you or any other individual. Reliance on any information provided in Services is solely at your own risk.
The entire contents of Services are based upon the opinions, research, and experience of LOVINTEL, unless otherwise noted. Any opinions in Services are or have been rendered based on specific facts, under certain conditions, and subject to certain assumptions, and may not and should not be used or relied upon for any other purpose, including, but not limited to, for use in or in connection with any medical treatment.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal law that was enacted on August 21, 1996 and established rules governing the privacy of all identifiable health information regardless of form (referred to as “Protected Health Information” or “PHI”), Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) & Code Set Standards, and the security of PHI. LOVINTEL does not ask for, collect, or use any HIPPA protected information.
THIS PORTION OF THE AGREEMENT IS AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE THAT REQUIRES MOST DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LOVINTEL TO BE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF IN COURT. SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN THIS SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY. IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH LOVINTEL AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to REGISTERED AGENTS INC 1267 WILLIS ST., STE 200, REDDING, CA 96001 UNITED STATES. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims with an amount in controversy under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’ most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in Santa Clara County. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Each party must assume the costs incurred to present its evidence; all other expenditures and costs related to the arbitration are to be shared equally by the parties. The losing party, as determined by the arbitration award, shall bear the other Party’s reasonable costs and expenses, and the arbitrators and administrative fees of arbitration.
YOU AND LOVINTEL HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT (OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR IN EQUITY, AS PERMITTED HEREIN) AND WAIVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.
You and LOVINTEL (including all Company’s Services) are instead electing that all covered claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 3.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE FOR CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER.
If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this Section 3.5’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of California. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
Except as provided in Section 3.5, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, then such specific part or parts shall be severed and shall be of no force and effect and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination or expiration of the Agreement or your relationship with LOVINTEL.
This Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by you without LOVINTEL’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void.
LOVINTEL shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
To the extent the parties are permitted under this Agreement to initiate litigation in a court, both you and LOVINTEL agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement will be litigated exclusively in the state court in Santa Clara County, California or federal court located in the Northern District of California.
CALIFORNIA LAW GOVERNS THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY ACTION RELATED THERETO WILL BE GOVERNED AND INTERPRETED BY AND UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, CONSISTENT WITH THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CONFLICT OF LAW OR OTHER PRINCIPLES THAT PROVIDE FOR THE APPLICATION OF THE LAW OF ANOTHER JURISDICTION.
You may give notice to LOVINTEL at the following address: REGISTERED AGENTS INC 1267 WILLIS ST., STE 200, REDDING, CA 96001 UNITED STATES. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by LOVINTEL by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first-class postage certified prepaid mail at the above address.

Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
This Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior discussions between the parties with respect to such subject matter.
You agree to indemnify and hold LOVINTEL harmless from any claim or demand, including attorneys’ fees, made by any third party as a result of (1) any content posted or made available by you in Services, (2) any violation of law that occurs by you through Services, and/or (3) anything you do using Services and/or the information contained therein.

Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Services may contain certain copyrighted material that were not specifically authorized to be used by the copyright holder(s), but which we believe in good faith are protected by federal law and the fair use doctrine. We are making such material available in our efforts to advance understanding of scientific and social issues, etc. Services are for educational purposes only.
The Copyright Laws of the United States recognizes a “fair use” of copyrighted content. Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act states: “Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.”
