HealthyLongevity.Guide Inc., 2055 Limestone Rd, Wilmington, DE 19808, USA ("Healthy Longevity Guide", “HLG”, "we", "us", or "our") provides the services made available at www.healthylongevity.guide and all other websites operated by HealthyLongevity.Guide, and all associated applications, including mobile applications, and services including the aforementioned websites themselves and content in blog section therein (hereinafter "Service"), as an information society service in the meaning of Article 1(b) of Directive (EU) 2015/1535. The Service is provided by us and available only to legal persons and natural persons who have reached the age of legal majority and are competent to enter into a legally binding agreement(s) under the applicable law.
HealthyLongevity.Guide’s mission is to engage one million health professionals in healthy longevity guidance. The extension of healthy lifespan at scale, better aging across the population can be only achieved when the verified, unbiased and objective educational content is available for health and wellness professionals. We believe in importance of a structured introductory content in the field of longevity for the practitioners new to the topic, and we believe in importance of the possibility for the health professionals to be able to purchase verified longevity products such as supplements and diagnostics, from the small group of vetted partners, backed up by research and case-evidence medicine. Change can only be achieved with comprehensive accessibility. Our Service takes your work and activities on the Service into account to help connect you with other individuals who are relevant to you, and recommend relevant content. We also gather information from external sources, in order to disseminate as much relevant scientific content as possible to drive longevity science forward. Any natural or legal person who, as a recipient of the Service, accesses or uses the Service for any purpose is a User ("User", "you"). Our registered Users ("Members") can, by way of example, and not as a limitation, share their professional identities, credentials, awarded grants, display their academic publications, engage and collaborate with their networks, exchange knowledge and professional insights, contact or be contacted by other Users (including recruiters), post and view relevant content, and discover business and career opportunities. Some content is also visible to unregistered and logged-out Users ("Visitors").
These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between HelthyLongevity.Guide and any of its Users. In some jurisdictions, you may be bound to these Terms if you access the Service. Furthermore, a Visitor may also be asked to assent to these Terms in order to use a certain limited number of features on the Service. The Terms become binding on Members once we accept your offer to enter into a binding agreement with us, e.g., once you have submitted the registration process and we have sent confirmation that you have successfully registered for the Service.
The Service is only available to individuals who are at least 18 years old. If you are under 18, you may not use or attempt to register for the Service. In addition, if you have previously had your membership restricted by us, you may not attempt to register for the Service again.
Among other things, the Service provides you with the ability to add, create, upload, submit, distribute, send, share, or post ("submit", "submitting", or "submission") content, articles, data, text, photographs, images, illustrations, advertisements, or other information on or to the Service (collectively, the "Member Submissions"). By way of example, and not as a limitation, Member Submissions may be submitted when you request the Service to:
The Service also enables you to learn about other Members, get into contact with or be contacted by other Members and/or institutions, consume their work, their research, post and answer questions on various topics and interact with HealthyLongevity.Guide’s community. The Service also allows you to present, organize and manage scientific collaboration.
The Service also provides you with functionalities that support your scientific work, your professional life and development. To be as helpful as possible, the Service takes information about you as a Member, your Member Submissions and your activity on the Service into account in suggesting content and providing other aspects of the Service. This way we can make recommendations for connections, content, and features that may be useful to you. Also, by taking your work, research, career, experience, and other factors into account, we are able to provide you with opportunities, information and helpful contacts. Keeping your profile information accurate and up-to-date helps us to make these recommendations more accurate and relevant.
HealthyLongevity.Guide shall not be a contracting party to any agreements entered into by Users with other Users or with any third party via the Service. Users are solely responsible for the execution and/or fulfilment of agreements they enter into. ResearchGate shall not be held liable for breaches of duty in relation to such agreements. If there is a dispute between you and a third party, you agree that ResearchGate assumes no responsibility and is under no obligation to become involved.
The Service consists largely of information uploaded by and/or stored upon the request of Members. We input reasonably possible effort manually or automatically preview or review or filter such information.

We will, upon obtaining knowledge about or becoming aware of such infringements, act expeditiously to remove or disable access to such information.
In addition to the content sourced by the HLG team, Member Submissions, we also source bibliographical information from various publicly available sources. We do so to enrich our platform with information that is not our own work or a Member Submission. We want to promote scientific discourse by adding even more relevant information to our platform. To the extent that content collected from third-party sources, including personal data, is made available by HealthyLongevity.Guide on the Service, we are unable to control the legitimacy or accuracy of such content. However, we will review any issues that are reported to us. Our support team provides information about how to report content to us.

If the Member relinquishes or loses the right to use the Service, the following shall survive termination:

HealthyLongevity.Guide may also be liable without limitation for damages due to malicious conduct by HealthyLongevity.Guide. In addition, HealthyLongevity.Guide may be liable without limitation for damages due to intent or gross negligence by HealthyLongevity.Guide or one of its legal representatives or vicarious agents.
Apart from the cases set out above, HealthyLongevity.Guide’s liability shall be limited to typical foreseeable contractual damages in the event of a breach of any of its cardinal contractual duties due to slight negligence. Cardinal contractual duties are an abstract description of those obligations whose fulfilment is indispensable for the proper implementation of an agreement and on whose fulfilment the contracting parties can usually rely. Any other liability on the part of HealthyLongevity.Guide is excluded.
You will indemnify and hold HealthyLongevity.Guide (including our affiliates and subsidiaries, as well as our and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents) harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms, your improper use of the Service, or your breach of any law or your violation of the rights of a third party.
Except as provided below in Section 17 with respect to U.S. Users, these Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, except for its conflicts of laws principles and the CISG (United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods).
If the User is a consumer in the sense of Article 6 of EU Regulation 593/2008 and has their habitual residence outside of European Union (EU), provisions which, in the absence of choice, would have been applicable and which cannot, by virtue of law, be derogated from by agreement, shall remain unaffected.
Except as provided below in Section 17 with respect to U.S. Users, the courts of the State of Delaware shall have sole jurisdiction over any disputes arising out of or in connection with these Terms. This does not apply if the User is a consumer in the sense of Article 17 of EU Regulation No. 1215/2012 and is residing in a Member State of the EU; in this case the international jurisdiction is governed by Article 18 of EU Regulation No. 1215/2012.
If the User (i) is a merchant, a legal person under public law, or special funds under public law, and is either a resident of European Union (EU) or resides outside of the European Union (EU), or (ii) is resident of another Member State of the EU and is not a consumer in the sense of Article 17 of EU Regulation No. 1215/2012, or (iii) has its residence outside of the EU, the courts of the State of Delaware shall have sole jurisdiction over any disputes arising out of or in connection with these Terms.
Statutory provisions regarding exclusive jurisdiction shall remain unaffected.
The EU Commission provides an Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform for the out-of-court resolution of disputes concerning contractual obligations with consumers (as defined in Article 4 of EU Directive No 11/2013).

We do not use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures to resolve disputes with consumers.
Any administrative emails from HealthyLongevity.Guide will be sent to the Member’s current primary email address listed for their account. In the event that the last email address you provided is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering you the notice, our dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. For security and privacy reasons, non-personal email addresses (such as generic company email addresses) may not be listed as contact email addresses for an account.
We are permitted to transfer rights and duties to third parties, in whole or in part. Section 10 applies. If ResearchGate does not act to enforce a breach of these Terms, that does not mean ResearchGate has waived its rights to enforce these Terms.
If any provision or portion of these Terms is held to be or becomes invalid, illegal, unenforceable, or in conflict with the law of any applicable jurisdiction, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.
These Terms are only available and binding in their English-language version.
Additional Terms of Service for United States residents only ("Additional U.S. Terms")
The following Additional U.S. Terms apply only to United States residents and apply in addition to the Terms set out above. To the extent they are inconsistent with any previous Terms, the following Additional U.S. Terms shall prevail.
The Service is provided "as is" and we disclaim any and all representations and warranties, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for any particular purpose, or non-infringement. We do not promise any specific results, effects, or outcome from the use of the Service. We do not represent or warrant that the Service and the data and information provided are accurate, up-to-date, complete, or reliable.
You acknowledge and agree that you assume full responsibility for your use of the Service and the data. Recognizing such, you understand and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, neither we (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) nor any of our suppliers or licensors will be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive, exemplary, or other damages of any kind, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other tangible or intangible losses or any other damages based on contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence), strict liability, or any other theory (even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from your use of or inability to use the Service and/or the data; unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; any actions we take or fail to take as a result of communications you send us; human errors; viruses; or technical malfunctions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our liability to you for any cause whatsoever and regardless of the form of action, will at all times be limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to us for use of the Service over the past twelve (12) months, or one hundred dollars ($100), whichever is greater. Some laws do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability, so these limits may not apply to you. However, if you are a resident of the State of New Jersey, these limitations and exclusions do apply to you.
If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In entering into this release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.
This section only applies to Users in the United States.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. In order to expedite and control the cost of disputes, you and we agree that any legal or equitable claim arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Service or these Terms, and the formation, validity, enforceability, scope, or applicability of these Terms, including this Section 17 (referred to as a "Claim") will be resolved as follows:
We will first try to resolve a ny Claim informally. Accordingly, neither of us may start a formal proceeding (except for Claims described in the "Exceptions" section below) for at least 30 days after one of us notifies the other of a Claim in writing. Notice of the Claim will include a brief written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, claim, or controversy and the relief requested. You will send your notice by email to firstname.lastname@example.org AND to this address:_ HealthyLongevity.Guide Inc., 2055 Limestone Rd, Wilmington, DE 19808, USA. We will send our notice by email to the email address associated with your account. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the notice and 30-day negotiation period required by this paragraph shall not apply, however, to disputes, claims, or controversies concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Service.
Except as provided in the "Exceptions" section below, if we cannot resolve a Claim informally, any Claim either of us asserts will be resolved only by binding arbitration and not in courts of general jurisdiction. The arbitration will be conducted under the rules of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (referred to as the "JAMS Rules") and under the rules set forth in these Terms. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to your state’s law.
In the arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator has no authority to make errors of law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator does so. Otherwise, the arbitrator’s decision is final and binding on all parties and may be enforced in any federal or state court that has jurisdiction. Neither you nor we shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims in arbitration by or against other individuals or entities, or arbitrate any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity. Accordingly, you and we agree that the JAMS Class Action Procedures do not apply to our arbitration. A court may sever any portion of Section 17 that it finds to be unenforceable, except for the prohibition on class, representative, and private attorney general arbitration.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, disputes, claims, or controversies concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Service, including disputes involving a violation of the Communications Act of 1934, 47 U.S.C. § 605, or the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 1201, or the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. §§ 2510-2521, or any other statement or law governing theft of service, shall not be subject to arbitration as set out in this Section 17 and may be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction. Moreover, you may choose to pursue your claim in small claims court where jurisdiction and venue over ResearchGate and you otherwise qualify for such small claims court and where your claim does not include a request for any type of equitable relief.
If you are a Personal User, you have the right to opt out and not be bound by the binding arbitration requirement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the email address email@example.com. The notice must be sent within 30 days of the effective date of these Terms or your first use of the Service, whichever is later. If you opt out of the binding arbitration requirement, we also will not be bound by the requirement. Professional Users may not opt out of the binding arbitration requirements.
Changes to this section
We will provide 30 days’ notice of any changes to this section. Changes will become effective on the 30th day, and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the 30th day.
The U.S. Federal Arbitration Act (including its procedural provisions) is the law that will be applied to determine whether Section 17 can be enforced and how it should be interpreted.
Apart from that, if you are a United States resident, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by the law of the State of Delaware, except for its conflicts of laws principles.
If you are a United States resident, judicial proceedings that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 17 must be brought in state or federal court in Wilmington, State of Delaware, unless we both agree to some other location. You and HealthyLongevity.Guide both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Wilmington, State of Delaware.
