The content of these sites is provided to you to broaden your understanding and knowledge of the health and fitness topics discussed in our magazines. This information should not be considered to be exhaustive of a particular topic, and should never be used in place of a visit or call to, consultation with or advice from your physician or other health care provider. We strongly recommend that you consult a health care professional prior to using any information or advice contained in these sites that sets forth, illustrates, or suggests a particular diet, fitness program, workout regimen, or activity. Further, we do not recommend the self-management of health problems because of the advice or recommendations contained in these sites. You should never disregard medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read in these sites. We do not assume any liability for injuries that may occur while using any information contained in these sites, regardless of whether a doctor was consulted.
Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Some of the content you find on our sites was not created, edited, or posted by us (for example, discussion group postings). Though we hope the advertisers, merchants, and users you meet through our sites treat you honorably and fairly, we can't vouch for the information, goods, or services they offer. Before you act on information you've found on or through our sites, confirm any facts that are important to your decision. We encourage you to exercise a healthy skepticism and good judgment.
Our web sites are provided free of charge to you under this Visitor Agreement. For certain services, however, such as auctions, contests, sweepstakes, or premium services, you may need to register, and in a few cases pay a fee. If registration or fees are required, additional terms will be placed on the sites that explain the special terms that apply with respect to those services. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not register for, pay for, or enter the sites. Please review our Visitor Agreement periodically to determine whether a change has been made. If you do not agree to any changes made in the Visitor Agreement, please arrange to discontinue your use of the sites. Your continued use of these sites signifies your acceptance of any changes in the Visitor Agreement.
2. Rules for Submissions and Messages
If you are under 13 years old, you are not allowed to register or to participate in discussion groups.
Responsibility for what is posted in the discussion groups or other public forums lies with each user--you alone are responsible for the content of your messages, and the consequences of any such messages. You agree not to use the sites in any way to send or submit materials:
- that are false, inaccurate or misleading;
- that are fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen items;
- that infringe any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy;
- that violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including without limitation those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising);
- that are defamatory, libelous, threatening or harassing;
- that are obscene or contain any kind of pornography;
- that contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information;
- that might create liability for us or might cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our internet service providers or other suppliers;
- that interfere with the ability of others to enjoy our site;
- that impersonate any other person or entity, whether actual or fictitious, including impersonating an employee or consultant of WIN; or
- that link to or include descriptions of goods or services that: (i) are prohibited under this Agreement; or (ii) you do not have a right to link to or include.
That said, we are most often a passive conduit for the information users submit. We cannot and do not review every submission a user may make. We neither endorse nor guarantee the accuracy or propriety of any submission. We do, however, reserve the right but do not assume the obligation to restrict or prohibit your use of our sites if we believe you are violating any of the terms of the Visitor Agreement and to remove, edit, or relocate any submission as we see fit whether for legal or other reasons.
In order to encourage users to feel free to share their e-mail addresses in public posting areas, you may not use any other user's information, personal or otherwise, for any commercial purpose, chain letters, junk mail, "spamming," bulk communications, or developing lists. Any such use by you shall be deemed to be a violation of this Visitor Agreement. Your use of the sites is limited to personal, not commercial purposes. Your commercial exploitation of the sites is strictly prohibited unless we grant prior written permission.
You acknowledge that:
- We permit access to content that is protected by copyrights, trademarks and other intellectual property and proprietary rights ("Rights") and;

You are free to display and print for your personal, non-commercial use information you receive through our sites. You are free to encourage others to access the information themselves on our sites. We welcome links to our service. You are free to establish a hypertext link to our sites so long as the link does not state or imply any sponsorship of your site by us or make use of a trademark or logo without written consent of the trademark or logo owner.

4. Third Party Services
As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third party's web sites. Those web sites and parties are beyond our control.

This Visitor Agreement and any express additional terms (which will be identified as such when posted by us on our other sites) constitute the entire understanding between the parties as to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings with respect thereto.
