My Slimband Online Community - Code of Conduct
My Slimband Online Community is a social networking site that is owned and administered by Slimband. The site’s main objective is to facilitate weight loss support through positive feedback for Slimband patients.
Slimband only endorses official Slimband events run by company staff. Any outside events are not to be promoted on the My Slimband Community. Slimband reserves the right to delete any posts, images, or private messages that promote outside meetings. Users who continue to post about outside meetings are contravening the site's Terms & Conditions, and may be removed from the community.
Slimband reserves the right to permanently remove users who publicly post their e-mail addresses, or those of others on the My Slimband Community. The right to suspend or renew My Slimband Community membership is the sole discretion of Slimband management.
Positive Support for Permanent Weight Loss
Social support is critical to successful weight loss and weight loss maintenance. At Slimband we recognize the importance of social support and encourage patients to seek the convenient, 24/7 positive feedback they have access to through My Slimband. Positive feedback includes the sharing of weight loss goals attained, words of encouragement for those who are struggling, posting of tasteful “before” and “after” photos, and discussion of helpful tips that lead to successful weight loss.
As an added benefit, My Slimband members also have access to certain members of the Slimband Support Team through private messaging or groups such as “Ask a Dietitian”, “Ask a Fitness Expert” or “All about Fills.” General questions about nutrition, fitness or fill adjustments can be posted in these groups for the appropriate Slimband expert to respond.
Rights and Responsibilities
All My Slimband discussion topics, comments, and private messages will be monitored for offensive language, derogatory statements, or images that are not supportive of the positive attitude that is necessary for successful weight loss or weight loss maintenance. Slimband reserves the right to delete or move any topics, comments, images, and private messages that are not in line with the site’s main objective. Users who do not comply with the stipulations in this Code of Conduct will also be removed.
Slimband is not responsible for any discussions posted by members under any of the Groups and do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, reliability, completeness of any message.
Medical advice from Medical professionals
With the safety and well-being of our patients in mind, Slimband would like to discourage My Slimband members from discussing medical issues online.
Medical issues such as post-operative pain, medication, symptoms related to fill adjustments, or port complications are best addressed by speaking directly with medical professionals either at the Slimband clinic or at a more local healthcare provider.
In the interest of directing patients to proper medical care, any posts related to medical issues will be removed from the My Slimband Online Community.
All site users warrant that they are at least 18 years of age and possess the legal ability and right to agree to use this site in accordance with these Terms of Service.
You, the user, agrees that these Terms and Conditions and all of the agreements between us and you may be automatically assigned by us, at our sole discretion, to a third party in the event of an acquisition, merger or liquidation.
Any failure to act with respect to a breach of these Terms and Conditions by you or anybody else does not waive our right to act with respect to future or current similar breaches. These Terms and Conditions set forth the entire understanding and agreement between any site user and Slimband with respect to the site, its uses and services.
