Disclaimer - development predictions
Our Services include the tracking of the physical growth and milestone development of your child. Our Services track the growth and development of your child by plotting data of your child's length, weight and head circumference on a chart to form a growth curve ("Growth Curve"). The Growth Curve is based on local growth statistics in your stipulated jurisdiction which are derived from the data provided by Oogababy users ("Oogababy Statistics") in combination with the World Health Organisation Child Growth Standards ("WHO Standards"). Oogababy makes predictions of your child's likely growth ("Prediction") and calculates the measurement percentile that you child is in ("Calculation") based on a comparison of the data provided for your child against the Oogababy Statistics and WHO Standards.
All Calculations and growth Predictions provided by Oogababy are based on the measurements entered by users of their children ("Measurements") as compared agains the Oogababy Statistics and the WHO Standard.
OOGABABY DOES NOT INTERPRET THE MEASUREMENTS SUBMITTED BY YOU OF YOUR CHILDREN. OOGABABY WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR ANY CALCULATION OR PREDICTION OF THE MEASUREMENTS PROVIDED BY YOU OR FOR ANY ACTIONS OR OUTCOMES OF ACTIONS TAKEN BASED ON THE CALCULATION.
As part of tracking the development of your child, Oogababy makes predictions of your child's major milestones based on the date of birth of your child, the Oogababy Statistics and the WHO Standards. The predictions are therefore based on average development of children. Even though Oogababy's aim is to provide relevant predictions, these are not always 100% accurate. OOGABABY WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY INACCURATE MILESTONE PREDICTIONS OR ANY ACTIONS TAKEN AS A RESULT OF THE PREDICTIONS.
