The HONcode's significance

The Health On the Net (HON) certificate guarantees that this website complies with the eight principles of the HON Foundation's Code of Conduct at the date indicated above. The persons responsible for the site commit to maintaining its compliance with the HONcode principles for the duration of the site’s certification.

However, despite the complaint system that has been put in place and the periodic review and automatic monitoring of certified sites to ensure maximum compliance with the HONcode ethical principles, it is impossible to eliminate all risks of incoherence that may appear.

Under no circumstances shall the HON Foundation and/or its partner(s) be held liable for any damages resulting from the use or the inability to use HONcode-certified websites. Similarly, the HON Foundation and/or its partner(s) shall not be held liable for the content of such certified websites or any other website accessible via a hypertext link or through third-party information.

Those responsible for the certified website are responsible for the content of the website unless otherwise provided by law.
