PLEASE SEEK THE ADVICE OF PROFESSIONALS, AS APPROPRIATE, REGARDING THE EVALUATION OF ANY SPECIFIC INFORMATION, OPINION, ADVICE OR CONTENT.
This Agreement shall remain effective until terminated in accordance with its own terms and conditions. You agree that AVN, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (in whole or in part), or use of the Site or Services, and remove and discard any content within the Site, at any time and for any reason. You agree that any actions taken under this Section may be effective without prior notice to you. In the event of termination, however, those Sections in this Agreement which provide for continuing obligations on your part shall survive indefinitely.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold AVN and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders or other partners, employees, and representatives harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) which arise directly or indirectly out of or from (i) your breach of this Agreement, (ii) any allegation that any materials that you submit to AVN or post on any forums (e.g., message boards, chat rooms) infringe or otherwise violate the copyright, trade secret, trademark or other intellectual property rights of a third party, and (iii) your access or use of the Site and/or the Services.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. and international copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN) or Living Wisdom magazine infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to AVN a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorised to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon AVN actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to AVN a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see https://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. We suggest that you consult your legal adviser before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
If you are not fully satisfied with a service or product purchased from the AVN, we offer a 100% reimbursement within 14 business days of purchase.
Statements made and products sold through this website have not been evaluated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease. Always consult a healthcare professional before participating in any treatment protocol – natural or mainstream.
