SELF RECOVERY DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE

We want to help you to lead a healthier life, but we are not your doctor!  Our content is for self-help and informational purposes only and should not be construed as, nor replace, medical or health care advice.  You agree to consult your medical or health care provider before making use of any of the information contained within the Self Recovery Web Site.

The Self Recovery Web Site is for informational purposes only.  You acknowledge that the Self Recovery Web Site is not a substitute for professional medical or health care advice, diagnosis, or treatment.  “Self Recovery Web Site” means any content made available by Self Recovery to users through the Internet, whether provided through a web page or service or available for download and including the Self Recovery web site and its affiliated web sites.  Such content shall include any text, graphics, videos, images, and all other information, whether created by Self Recovery or by a third party.

YOUR INFORMATION

Health Information

To take advantage of the benefits of the Self Recovery Web Site, from time to time you will have the ability but never the obligation to submit or upload information relating to your personal health and your personal substance abuse issues, history, and concerns (collectively, “Health Information).

You agree that we can store, transmit, and display your Health Information for your personal use on the Self Recovery Web Site.  We will not allow any other party to view or access personally-identifiable Health Information, except in instances where you yourself have knowingly shared or posted it in the public and community forums on the Self Recovery Web Site.  We also will use reasonable, commercially-available measures to safeguard and protect your Health Information.

Although we make good faith efforts to store Health Information in a secure operating environment, you should understand that there is no such thing as complete security, and we are unable to guarantee that your Health Information will never be accessed or disclosed without authorization. If we become aware that your Health Information has been accessed or disclosed in a manner that compromises its security or privacy, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you of the nature and extent of the access or disclosure (to the extent we know that information) as soon as reasonably possible and as required by law.

You also agree that we can manipulate your Health Information to analyze the aggregate status and aggregate progress of Self Recovery users (“Aggregate Information”).   Such Aggregate Information will not be personally identifiable but can be displayed to any registered user of the Self Recovery Web Site.  Further, Self Recovery may use such Aggregate Information for marketing and advertising purposes.  Self Recovery may also use Aggregate Information to run (or authorize third parties to run) statistical research on health or medical trends. Such analysis would only use Aggregate Information in an anonymous manner that does not allow for re-identification.

Account Information 

You agree to safeguard your account information, including your password, any identifying information, any Health Information, and any other personal or financial information (collectively, “Account Information”).  You agree to control the dissemination of your Account Information, monitor and control access to your Account Information, and promptly inform Self Recovery if you believe your Account Information has been compromised.  You grant to Self Recovery the limited right to store, transmit, and use your Account Information in connection with operation of the Self Recovery Web Site.  While Self Recovery endeavors to protect all Account Information, Self Recovery does not guarantee the protection of your Account Information.  Self Recovery will not disclose, sell, or otherwise transfer your Account Information to any third party without your permission.

 

PAYMENT TERMS

Fees

Fees for your use of the website are determined and calculated on a per course basis.  If there is a fee for the course in which You enroll, You promise to pay a one-time fee, recurring subscription fee, or divided monthly payments for use of the Self Recovery Web Site.  You authorize us to charge such fees to the credit card account which You identify when You purchase the course.  This Agreement shall automatically continue, subject to the Term & Termination provision below.

Refunds

All courses offered by Self Recovery carry a 30-day money back guarantee.  If you are unhappy with the content or presentation of a course for any reason, you may request a refund of the price paid by emailing our customer service department within that time frame.  Self Recovery will refund such amount within thirty (30) days of your request.  Please note that the Self Recovery Web Site reserves the right to suspend or terminate your right to purchase course materials and refuse or restrict your right to any current or future use of Self Recovery products in the event that Self Recovery determines that such behavior indicates the abuse of the Company’s refund policy.

 

DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS

We know everyone wants to pay bills on time, but sometimes life gets in the way.  Self Recovery will give you 30 days to remedy any past-due amounts before suspending your Self Recovery account.  Should your account remain in arrears for longer than 120 days, Self Recovery shall have the right to remove and/or delete your Account Information along with any other content from you from the Self Recovery Web Site permanently, without providing any notice.
