These “approximated scores” are provided without requiring that a patient actually take tests provided by the third-parties. AssessMD’s “approximated scores” may differ substantially from scores obtained by the patient actually taking the third-party tests. In addition, AssessMD is not affiliated with any such third-parties and makes no representations or warranties regarding the reliability or usefulness of any information from such third-parties. Furthermore, by providing the third-party content, AssessMD makes no direct or indirect statement regarding the reliability or usefulness of any third-party content.

You are responsible for all User Content that You or Your medical provider input to the Websites and AssessMD has no responsibility to verify the accuracy of such data for any purpose. As with any diagnostic tools, the results of any analysis of User Content by or through the Websites may vary depending on a variety of factors influencing User.
By providing User Content, You represent that you own or have the necessary permissions to use and authorize the use of the User Content as described herein. You may not imply that provided User Content is in any way sponsored or endorsed by AssessMD.
