The User is therefore exclusively and fully responsible for use of the Website.

7.2. The Website Operator does not warrant any response to the Contents published thereby on the Website. The Website Operator is unable to know which responses (if any) it will receive following the publication and who will respond to the Contents it will publish, and therefore it will bear no liability to the transferor of the Contents (or to anyone on his behalf) for such responses, for the identity of the persons contacting the transferor of the Contents or for any result deriving from the publication.

The Website Operator and/or the Website shall bear no liability for any result deriving therefrom or from use thereof or from reliance thereupon.

7.4. Correct professional advice is dependent on the exact facts of each and every case. The Contents on the Website are not a substitute for such advice.

7.5. Such Contents are not a substitute for professional treatment or advice where required (for example, the answer of a medical expert to a question in the context of a forum is not a substitute for the receipt of medical treatment or advice, as necessary). At times, such Contents reflect a certain personal opinion or approach of the writer. Therefore, they should be treated with the requisite caution. If you decide to rely upon Contents published on the Website, or act pursuant thereto, you are fully and exclusively liable for your action and its consequences.

7.6. The Website Operator does not warrant that the services of the Website will not be disrupted, will be regularly or uninterruptedly provided, will be maintained unfailingly and without errors, and will be immune to unauthorized access to the Website's computers or to damage, flaws, malfunctions or failures – all, in the hardware, software, the communication lines and systems, held by the Website or by any of its providers.
