Medicus will not respond to any questions directly to the User but will only use questions to generate content for the FAQ. In this context, Medicus explicitly reserves the right to not consider all questions submitted and deeming certain questions inappropriate. 

1.3 As part of the “Medical calendar” feature, the K+ app uses US medical guidelines for recommended prenatal checkups only.
