Will these Terms ever change?

We are constantly trying to improve our website, so these Terms may need to change along with our website. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will place a notice on our site located at elementbiosciences.com, send you an email, and/or notify you by some other means.

If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use our website. If you use our website in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to the changes.

Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.
