1. The Bottom Line.
2. Modification to Agreement.
As the only thing constant is Change, so this policy will also change as we grow to help you better. We may change or update this Agreement from time to time, and any such modifications shall be effective upon posting on the Sites. Your use of our Sites after a change has been posted signifies your agreement to any such changes. You should review this Agreement periodically to make sure you are up to date on any changes.

Any prescription items listed for sale, exchange or giveaway by any member will be deleted.
4. Use Common Sense.
Gluxus classifies a “Visitor” as someone who is just browsing through our website. Gluxus classifies a “Member” as someone who has registered with our Site(s). Valid and accurate completion of the registration process leads to “Membership.” Visitors and Members are referred to collectively as “Users.”
Give careful thought to the information you post about yourself in your profile on our Sites and that you choose to share with other Users. Certain information should never be included in your Member profile, specifically telephone numbers, email addresses and street addresses.
During the Membership registration process, you will be prompted to provide personal information that allows us to know who you are, such as your name, birth date, residence city, state, country, and email address (“Registration Information”). By using our Sites, you represent and warrant that: (a) all Registration Information you submit is truthful, accurate, current and complete; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such Registration Information by updating and revising it promptly; and (c) your use of our Sites does not violate any applicable law or regulation.
You authorize GLUXUS to make any inquiries, either directly or through third parties, that we consider necessary to validate your Registration Information. GLUXUS reserves all rights to take legal action against anyone who misrepresents personal information or is otherwise untruthful about their identity, and to suspend or cancel Memberships established using inaccurate or incomplete information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that GLUXUS cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information submitted by any User of the Sites, nor any identity information about any User.
You affirm that you are 18 years of age or older, or an emancipated minor, or over the age of 13 and possess legal parental or guardian consent to use the Sites and register for Membership. You further affirm that you are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in this Agreement, and to abide by and comply with this Agreement, and that if you are older than 13 years of age but younger than 18 years of age, that your parent or legal guardian has read and accepted this Agreement.
The GLUXUS Sites are not intended for children under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, please do not use our Sites. There are many web sites out there that are appropriate for you, and you should talk with your parents or guardian about what sites are OK for you to visit. Although we cannot absolutely control whether minors gain unauthorized access to our Sites, your profile may be deleted and your Membership may be terminated without warning, if we believe that you are under 13 years of age.
6. Registration Information and Membership Security; Fees; Access to GLUXUS Sites
During the registration process, you will be asked to enter a screen name (“User Name”). Each Member is required to have a User Name. You may select as your User Name the name of another Member so long as, in our discretion, your choice of User Name does not cause deception or confusion; nor violate any trademark right, copyright, or other proprietary right; or a name which GLUXUS deems in its discretion to be vulgar or otherwise offensive. GLUXUS reserves the right to eliminate any User Name account for any reason or no reason. You are fully responsible for all activities conducted through your Membership or under your User Name.
During the registration process you will also be asked to choose a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the security of your password. You agree not to use another Member’s account or password at any time, or to disclose your password to any third party. You agree to notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your Membership or access to your password. You should never respond to an online request for a password other than in connection with the log-on process for the Sites. Your disclosure of your password to any other person is entirely at your own risk. Although GLUXUS will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Membership, you may be liable for our losses or the losses of others as a result of such unauthorized use.
Currently all the services offered by GLUXUS sites are free. Though it is not in our current plans, you acknowledge that we reserve the right to charge for some or all aspects of the GLUXUS Sites. You may cancel your Membership at any time. On your election to cancel, your Membership will be cancelled within 24-48 hours; however, if you have paid for access to specific Services in advance through a specific date, you will be permitted to use those Services through that date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if your Membership is terminated as a result of your breach of this Agreement, your access will be terminated and you shall not be entitled to the refund of any unused portion of fees.
GLUXUS has the right at any time for any reason or no reason to suspend or terminate your Membership, terminate this Agreement, and/or refuse any and all current or future use of the Sites without notice or liability to you. In the event that GLUXUS suspends or terminates your Membership or this Agreement, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or exchange for any unused time on a subscription, any license or subscription fees, any content or data associated with your Membership, or for anything else.
GLUXUS does not provide Internet access. You are solely responsible for any fees associated with your Internet connection.
GLUXUS reserves the right to interrupt the Sites with or without prior notice for any reason or no reason. You agree that GLUXUS will not be liable for any interruption of the Sites, delay or failure to perform, and you understand that except as may be otherwise specifically provided for in this Agreement you shall not be entitled to any refunds of fees for interruption of service or failure to perform. GLUXUS has the right at any time for any reason or no reason to change and/or eliminate any aspect(s) of the Sites as it sees fit in its sole discretion.
7. Non-Commercial Use, Surveys
The GLUXUS websites are for the personal use of Members and may not be used in connection with any commercial endeavors except those that are specifically endorsed or approved by us. Illegal and/or unauthorized use of the Sites, including collecting User Names and/or email addresses of Members by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email or unauthorized framing of or linking to the Sites is prohibited. Commercial advertisements, affiliate links, market research, network marketing and other forms of solicitation may be removed from Member profiles without notice and may result in termination of Membership. Appropriate legal action may be taken for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Sites.
It is OK to refer other members to other resources and talk about what you do to other members. It is NOT OK to advertise or promote products or services without the explicit consent of the site administrator(s). This includes promoting charities, asking for donations, linking to your blog where you stand to benefit commercially, or using one’s “My Page” for self-promotion purposes, without contributing back to the community. If you want to advertise your product(s), blog(s), or service(s) within TuDiabetes.org®, contact us. If you would like to post a link to your blog, but have commercial interests or products available for purchase on your blog, you are allowed ONE posting of your url on your main profile page in the field for “What is the address for your Twitter profile or other web site, if any?” You may not post links to your blog elsewhere in our forums, blogs, or other member activity areas or use links in your signature or member name.
If you want to conduct a survey with the participation of Members of the community (even if it’s not for commercial use), you need to obtain permission prior to the survey being published. To do so, please use the “Contact Us” form at the bottom of any page on the site. Surveys posted without prior approval can be removed without notification.
Listen. The web is full of temptations; don’t succumb. Please play nice with your and other people’s information.

When a clear and valid Notice is received pursuant to the guidelines set forth below, we will respond by either taking down the allegedly infringing content (“Allegedly Infringing Content”) or blocking access to it. We may contact the Notice provider to request additional information.
Under the DMCA, we are required to take reasonable steps to notify the entity who posted the Allegedly Infringing Content (“Alleged Infringer”). The Alleged Infringer is allowed under the law to send us a counter-notification as instructed below (“Counter-Notice”). On receiving a Counter-Notice, we may restore the Allegedly Infringing Content unless we receive notice from the original Notice provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the Alleged Infringer from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity.
Anyone making a false or fraudulent Notice or Counter-Notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorney’s fees. If you are unsure of whether certain material infringes your copyright, contact an attorney.
