The persons responsible for the site commit to maintaining its compliance with the HONcode principles for the duration of the site's certification.

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.
