The content, whether such content is provided by or through the use of the services or through any other communications from ybc, is not intended as a substitute for, nor does it replace, professional business advice, diagnosis, or solution. Do not disregard, avoid or delay obtaining professional advice from a qualified service provider because of something you may have read on the site. Your use of the content is solely at your own risk. Nothing stated or posted on the site or available through any services is intended to be, and must not be taken to be, the practice of business care.
We do not recommend or endorse any specific procedures, opinions, or other information that may appear through the Services. If you rely on any Content provided through the Services, you do so solely at your own risk.

In connection with using the Site and the Services to locate and schedule appointments with Service Providers, you understand that:
You are ultimately responsible for choosing your own healthcare provider.
Your Business Clinic uses reasonable efforts to ensure that Services offered by the Service Providers are best available in the market. YBC may exclude Service Providers who, in YBC’s discretion, have engaged in inappropriate or unprofessional conduct.
We will provide you with lists and/or profile previews of Service Providers who may be suitable to provide the business services you seek based on information that you provide to us (such as legal or financial information, geographical location, and required services). In an effort to aid in the discovery of Service Providers and enable the maximum choice and diversity of Service Providers participating in the Services, these lists and/or profile previews may also be based on other criteria (including, for example, Service Provider availability, past selections by and/or ratings of Service Providers by you or by other YBC users, and past experience of YBC users with Service Providers); but YBC (a) does not recommend or endorse any Service Providers, and (b) does not make any representations or warranties with respect to these Service Providers or the quality of the services they may provide. Note, however, to the extent that you use the Services as provided by your employer, YBC may provide lists and/or profile previews based also on criteria determined by your employer and your employer’s agents or advisors.
We may show you sponsored results on the Site, including at the top of search results (“Sponsored Results”). YBC receives additional fees from Service Providers or consulting organizations for providing Sponsored Results. Sponsored Results shown through the Services are not, and should not be considered, an endorsement or recommendation by YBC of the Service Provider or healthcare organizations.
