HDIRS reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the communication services or the entire website at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.

HDIRS reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in HDIRS’ sole discretion.

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself, your patients, or your family/children in any communication service. HDIRS does not control or endorse the content found in any communication service and, therefore, HDIRS disclaims any liability with regard to the communication services and any actions resulting from your participation. Views do not necessarily reflect those of HDIRS.

Materials uploaded to a communication service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations.

Materials Provided to HDIRS or Posted on the HDIRS Website
HDIRS does not claim ownership of the materials you provide to HDIRS or post, upload, input, enter, or submit to any HDIRS website or its associated services (collectively “submissions”). However, by posting, uploading, inputting, providing or submitting your submission you are granting HDIRS permission to use your submission in connection with the operation of their Internet businesses including, without limitation, the rights to copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate, and reformat your submission; and to publish your name in connection with your submission.

No compensation will be paid with respect to the use of your submission. HDIRS is under no obligation to post or use any submission and may remove any submission at any time in HDIRS’ sole discretion.
