You should therefore be cautious when using any personal contact information or discussing any personal medical information.

The use of the Services or the downloading or other use of any Materials through the Site is done at your own discretion and risk and with your agreement that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system, loss of data, or other harm that results from such activities. MSW assumes no liability for any computer virus or other similar software code that is downloaded to your computer from the Site or in connection with any Services or Materials offered through the Site.
