Spring Does Not Provide Medical Advice.
The Services, including to be clear the Questionnaires and the results of the Questionnaires, are provided by Spring and its licensors for informational purposes only. The Services, and any data, information or results provided on, through or by the Services, are (a) not intended to be medical advice or instructional for medical diagnosis or treatment, (b) not intended to be complete or to replace personal consultation with a qualified health care professional, and (c) not a substitute for the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider. You must always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider regarding any data, information or results provided by the Services or any questions you may have regarding a health or medical condition, and you must never disregard, avoid or delay obtaining professional medical advice from your physician or other qualified health provider because of any data, information or results provided on, through or by the Services. Reliance on any data, information or results provided by Spring (including on, through or by the Services) is solely at your own risk.
The Services may refer to certain goods or services (collectively, “Products”), including making available listings, descriptions, and images of, and references and links to, Products, whether such Products are made available by Spring or by third parties. Such references do not imply our endorsement of any Product or affiliation with the provider of such Product. We make no representations as to the completeness, accuracy or timeliness of such references (including any features or specifications), and any such information is subject to change at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and foreign laws (including minimum age requirements) regarding the possession, use and sale of any Product.
We may change this Agreement by notifying you of such changes by any reasonable means, including by posting a revised Agreement through the Services. Any such changes will not apply to any dispute between you and us arising prior to the date on which we posted the revised Agreement incorporating such changes, or otherwise notified you of such changes.
Your use of the Services following any changes to this Agreement will constitute your acceptance of such changes. The “LAST UPDATED” legend above indicates when this Agreement was last changed.

No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

All terms defined in the singular will have the same meanings when used in the plural, where appropriate and unless otherwise specified. Any use of the term “including” or variations thereof in this Agreement will be construed as if followed by the phrase “without limitation.” This Agreement, including any terms and conditions incorporated herein, is the entire agreement between you and Spring relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or understandings between you and Spring relating to such subject matter.
