Welcome to the Amava Guest Contributor Program. This Program is designed to enable select writers, physicians, educators and other experts with special knowledge or experience to contribute Posts to the Amava Post on an occasional or regular basis. Any contributions made are accepted by Amava on the following terms and conditions:

Rights to Posts. As a Guest Contributor (“You”) agree to allow Grayful, LLC (“Amava”) to publish original articles written by You (the “Posts”) on Amava’s website (“”) and apps, and in Amava’s newsletter, webinars and seminars (together, the “Amava Properties”). You grant Amava the non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide right to publish and use on the Amava Properties (and those of Amava affiliates and partners), syndicate, and distribute all or a portion of the Posts in any language, worldwide.

You grant Amava the right to use Your name, likeness, information about You provided to Amava, and the logo of Your web site, if applicable, in connection with the Posts.

Except for the rights granted Amava in this agreement, You retain all rights, including original copyright, in the Posts.

Posts Do Not Violate the Rights of Others. You represent and warrant that You have the right to grant all rights to the Posts; that the Posts are original; that they do not knowingly contain any untrue statements, invade any right of privacy, or infringe upon any statutory or common law copyright or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; and that all statements in the Posts that are asserted as facts are true and/or based upon reasonable research for accuracy.

You agree to cooperate in the defense of any legal action brought against Amava from the Posts. You agree to reveal to Amava any actual or potential conflict of interest, including but not limited to any financial interest in any product, firm, or commercial venture relating to the subject of the Posts. Amava reserves the right to remove any of the Posts that violate its publishing standards or for any other reason at any time.

Editing or Removal of Posts. Amava may remove or delete any Posts at any time in its sole discretion. Amava may illustrate or edit the Posts, but is not required to do so. You grant Amava the right to illustrate and edit the Posts for publication and marketing purposes. If You disagree with any edits or illustrations your sole recourse is to request in writing the removal of the Post in question which Amava will use reasonable efforts to accomplish within 30 days.

Compensation. You are contributing the Posts so that your message can better reach Amava members which You agree is sufficient compensation for your efforts. You will not receive any other compensation from Amava for the Posts unless otherwise agreed to in writing. Any agreements related to services You may provide to Amava members shall be the subject of a separate written agreement.

Site References. You may include a link to your Amava Profile or your website at the end of your Post. You shall include the Amava logo including a live link to the Amava Post on your Website indicating you are a Guest Contributor.

Governing Law. These terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any change of law statutes or principles that would cause the laws of any other jurisdiction to apply.

Dispute Resolution. Any dispute arising out of or related to the subject matter of this agreement will be first discussed through informal negotiation. If, after 30 days, You and Amava are not able to work out the dispute, the dispute shall be subject to non-binding mediation, prior to arbitration. The mediator shall be a neutral retired judge or practicing attorney to be agreed upon by the parties. Mediation shall be conducted in Menlo Park, San Mateo County, California and parties not residing in the Bay Area may attend the hearing via video call. If the dispute is not resolved by mediation, You and Amava shall submit the dispute to binding arbitration under proceedings using the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator shall be a neutral retired judge or practicing attorney to be agreed upon by You and Amava. Arbitration shall be conducted in Menlo Park, San Mateo County, California. Each party shall bear its own costs in any such proceedings.

Limited Liability. Amava and its affiliates, and their respective members, directors, officers, managers, employees, shareholders, agents and licensors are not liable to You for incidental, indirect, consequential, special, punitive, or exemplary damages of any kind, including, without limitation, lost revenues or profits, loss of business or loss of data, in any way related to the Amava Properties or this Agreement, or for any claim, loss or injury based on errors, omissions, interruptions or other inaccuracies on the Amava Properties or in the Posts (including, without limitation, as a result of breach of any implied or explicit warranty under these terms). Any claim against Amava shall be limited to the amounts You paid, if any, to Amava.

Amendment. These terms and conditions may be updated from time to time. Any updates shall apply to You and any Posts from that date forward. If you disagree with any changes, you have the right to no longer participate in the Amava Guest Contributor Program.
