The initial sections of the disclaimer template make it clear that the publisher is not offering advice, but rather information. Whilst there is no specific legal distinction between advice and information, the purpose of this text is to highlight that the information has not been tailored to the reader – and must not be treated as equivalent to advice given by an expert with knowledge of the reader’s circumstances.
The next couple of sections seek to exclude all “warranties and representations” relating to the health and fitness information, and boldly assert that the information may be untrue, inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date and/or misleading. Depending upon how you use the disclaimer, you may wish to refine these sections.
The disclaimer goes on to highlight that “all exercise involves a risk of personal injury, including a small risk of serious injury or death, and agree that you are responsible for your health and well-being in relation to any exercise programme that you may undertake”.
The disclaimer also includes sections covering medical assistance and interactive website features, concluding with a limitation upon the disclaimers designed to protect the text against statutory and judicial interventions.
