By registering as a member or by visiting, browsing, or using the T&A Service in any way, you (as a “user”) accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service (“Terms”), which forms a binding agreement between you and T&A.
If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms, you may not access or use the T&A Service. Certain elements of the T&A Service may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified from time to time; your use of those elements of the T&A Service is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms by this reference.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you, and the right to access and use the T&A Service is revoked where these Terms or use of the T&A Service is prohibited or conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation. Further, the T&A Service is offered only for your personal, non-commercial use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party.

This license includes the right to view Content (defined below) available on the T&A Service. This license grant is subject to you agreeing to and abiding by the T&A Intellectual Property provisions included herein. This license will remain in effect unless and until you violate these Terms or this license is terminated by you or T&A.

- Termination; Account Deletion
Term. These Terms begin on the date you first use the T&A Service and continue as long as you have a T&A account.
Termination. T&A may, in T&A’s sole discretion, suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) for any lawful reason, including if T&A determines that you have violated these Terms or that your conduct would tend to damage T&A’s reputation or goodwill. If T&A deletes your account, you may not re-register for or use the T&A Service under any other user name or profile. T&A may block your access to the T&A Service to prevent re-registration.

IN THAT REGARD, DEVELOPMENTS IN MEDICAL RESEARCH MAY IMPACT THE HEALTH, FITNESS AND NUTRITIONAL ADVICE THAT APPEARS HERE. NO ASSURANCE CAN BE GIVEN THAT THE ADVICE CONTAINED IN THE T&A SERVICE WILL ALWAYS INCLUDE THE MOST RECENT FINDINGS OR DEVELOPMENTS WITH RESPECT TO THE PARTICULAR MATERIAL.
T&A reserves the right to refuse or cancel your membership if we determine that you have certain medical conditions or that the representations set forth above are untrue in any respect.

- Interpretation; Severability; Waiver; Remedies
Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to construe these Terms. If any term of these Terms is found invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be severed from these Terms.

The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of T&A.

You consent to receive all communications including notices, agreements, disclosures, or other information from T&A electronically. T&A may communicate by email or by posting to the T&A Service.
We may update these Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know by, at a minimum, posting the updated Terms (as indicated by a revised “Last Updated” date at the top of our Terms page) on the T&A website and/or through the T&A Service. Modifications will be effective on the date that they are posted to the T&A website. It is important that you review the Terms whenever we update them before you use the T&A Service. If you continue to use the T&A Service after we have posted updated Terms, you are agreeing to be bound by the updated Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then you may not use the T&A Service anymore.

These Terms represents the entire understanding between T&A and you regarding the T&A Service or Content and supersede all prior agreements and understandings regarding the same. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
- Force Majeure
T&A shall not be liable for any failure or delay in performance under these terms for causes beyond the party’s reasonable control and not caused by that party’s fault, or negligence, including, but not limited to, “acts of God”, epidemics, acts of government, flood, fire, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems, computer attacks or malicious acts, such as attacks on or through the internet, any internet service provider, telecommunications or hosting facility, but in each case, only if and to the extent that the non-performing party is without fault in causing such failure or delay, and the failure or delay could not have been prevented by reasonable precautions and measures and cannot reasonably be circumvented by the non-conforming party through the use of alternate sources, workaround plans, disaster recovery, business continuity measures or other means.
