This page sets out the terms and conditions that concern your use of the MoodGYM program and the content in it. When these terms use 'I', 'we', 'us', 'our' or 'eHub' it means eHub Health Pty Limited.
The information provided throughout MoodGYM is intended for information and skill development purposes only. This site is not designed to treat clinical levels of depression or anxiety or other mental health disorders. The diagnosis and treatment of clinical anxiety and depression requires a medical practitioner or qualified mental health professional. One reason this is important is that anxiety and depression are sometimes caused by physical illness or certain medications and a doctor can check these out. People seeking a diagnosis or treatment of depression, anxiety or other mental disorders should consult a medical practitioner or mental health professional.
Since its launch in 2001, MoodGYM has been evaluated in many research trials undertaken by research groups around the world. Although MoodGYM may reduce depression or anxiety in some people, eHub and its staff make no claims that MoodGYM will be helpful for every or any particular individual.
The screening tests in MoodGYM are intended solely for identifying the anxiety and depressive symptoms, and are not designed to provide a diagnosis. Persons under age 16 with depressive symptoms are advised to talk with their parents about getting help for depression from a qualified person.
The personality, stress and attitude scales used on the site are also intended solely to provide information. Individuals who feel stressed or depressed are advised to talk to a health professional.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EHUB AND ITS STAFF SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR CLAIMS BY, OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, TO A USER OF MOODGYM OR THE EHUB WEBSITE OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR A DECISION OR ACTION TAKEN IN RELIANCE ON THE INFORMATION CONTAINED ON THOSE SITES. SUCH DAMAGES INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

The MoodGYM program uses 'transient cookies'. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer's hard disk when you open the website. Cookies by themselves do not identify you but they do identify your web browser.
When you access the MoodGYM program our server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information: your browser's internet address; the date and time of your visit to the site; the pages you've accessed and documents downloaded; the type of browser you are using; the number of bookmarks created; the last viewed date; and the time of your visit.
The information collected by the MoodGYM program is used for statistical purposes and system administration tasks to maintain this service.
Because the MoodGYM program uses 'transient cookies' your computer does not retain the information delivered in the cookies once you leave the MoodGYM program website. When you close your browser, the transient cookie set up by MoodGYM program is destroyed and no information is retained which could identify you or your browser next time you log onto the MoodGYM program.
The MoodGYM program may use third-party tools to better understand how people use the site. This makes information similar to that of routine server logs available to Google or other third-party statistics providers. The analytic reports that are produced are aggregated and do not identify individual people.
The MoodGYM program may present content and functionality provided by third parties. The content, and any information gathered, is not controlled by eHub and users should consult the privacy policies of the third party providers.
