Copy Protection

FARC Inc., software is “copy righted” and “copy protected”. This means that the software has been specifically designed to be used on one computer [PC, MAC, tablet, smart phone, desk-top or lap-top] at a time; but not a corporate business network. When you purchase from us, you do not purchase a product – but rather you purchase a license to use the copyrighted software on any computer or electronic device/gadget, one-at-a-time. This license is non-transferable to any other individual or entity. But, you keep it forever.

Purchase

Our program[s] are good forever; just like a text book. It is not a time-limited subscription service “time-bomb” portal, or cloud application that you can not control.

Disclaimer

All our programs are created and designed to assist practitioners in preparing for the various certification examinations that we track and trend. We have made every effort to update and assure the accuracy of the information presented.

However, it is the responsibility of each practitioner to evaluate the appropriateness of any opinion in actual clinical situations. FARC Inc., cannot be held responsible for typographical or other errors found in our programs. Indications, adverse reactions, and dosages provided in the program may change. We recommend following the information and data given by the manufacturers of the medications mentioned.

We are also not liable for any misuse or misrepresentation of our material. We make no claim as to the technical, surgical or medical accuracy of the material.
