It is a condition of your use of the site that all the information you provide is correct, current, and complete, and you keep your password and account access secure.
In order to ensure we can protect the community, the website and other users, we have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time and for any reason, including, if in our opinion, you have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms of Use.

User Contributions and Posts
In order to help you post and share ideas with others, this site may contain tools that allow you to post your original contributions on this site or elsewhere.
These tools may include online petitions, fundraiser, announcements, letter-writing tools, message boards, chat rooms, personal web pages or profiles, forums, bulletin boards, and other interactive features that allow you to post, submit, publish, display, or transmit to other users or other members of the public your content or materials (“User Contributions”).
We consider any User Contribution you post to the site to be non-confidential. The content you post belongs to you, and you grant us the right to display, reuse, and share it to further the mission of HopeCom. In legal terms, by posting a User Contribution on the site, you confirm and warrant that you own or control all rights to that content and grant HopeCom and its affiliates, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, copy, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your content using any existing or future developed distribution methods or media.
Commitment to accuracy. HopeCom has a Commitment to Accuracy that applies to our official posts, and we ask you to similarly commit to accuracy in your independent User Contributions. You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you submit or contribute, and you, not HopeCom, have fully responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness.

We Are Not Responsible for User Contributions
We cannot review everything that is posted by users in advance, so any content and/or opinions uploaded, expressed or submitted to the site, and all User Contributions, including, articles, responses to questions, and other content, other than the content officially provided by HopeCom, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity submitting them and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of HopeCom. We are not responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials posted by you or any other user of this website and you agree to bear full responsibility for the content you post to the site. While we try to investigate all credible complaints about objectionable User Contributions, we cannot ensure individual responses or removal of such content.

Enforcement of Terms
Because the purpose of this website is to serve the HopeCom mission on behalf of the HopeCom community, in order to ensure that it is used only for its intended purpose and that no use of the site endangers HopeCom’s broader mission, HopeCom has the right to:

  • Remove or refuse to post any User Contributions for any or no reason. This is a decision HopeCom will strive to make fairly, but ultimately it is a decision that is solely up to HopeCom to make. It will be our general practice, however, to consult with our members including through randomized polling to determine what user contributions our membership views as advancing our mission. At all points in this process we will welcome feedback from the community on how we make these decisions as it is the community’s ability to achieve our mission that we are here to serve. But in the end, HopeCom has a legal obligation to ensure that all of our activities advance our mission and we therefore must reserve final judgment on upholding this requirement.
  • Take any action with respect to any User Contribution that we deem necessary or appropriate in our sole discretion if we believe that such User Contribution violates the Terms of Use, including the Content Standards, infringes any intellectual property right or other right, threatens the personal safety of users of this website and the public or could create liability for HopeCom.
  • Disclose your identity to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy. We will not do this lightly, but if we think it has the potential to facilitate a fair and just resolution of the dispute, or will protect HopeCom from liability for which we are not responsible, we may take this step. See More on Protection of HopeCom and Others in our Privacy Policy.
  • Take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of this website when we determine law enforcement is the proper and appropriate means for addressing the offending use.
  • Terminate your access to all or part of this website for any violation of these Terms of Use.

You waive and hold harmless HopeCom from any claims resulting from any action taken by HopeCom during or as a result of its investigations and from any actions taken as a consequence of investigations by either HopeCom or law enforcement authorities.

Links to other Sites
As is typical online, this site and user posts may contain hyperlinks to other sites. If there are other websites and resources linked to on this site, either by HopeCom or by you, these links are provided only for the convenience of our users. We have no control over the contents of those websites or resources, and therefore cannot accept responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any of the third party websites linked to this site, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the privacy policies and terms and conditions of use for such websites.

HopeCom Trademarks

All other names, brands, and marks that may appear on the site remain the property of their respective owners and appear here for identification purposes only.
Copyright Infringement and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
If you believe that a User Contribution violates your copyright, you may notify us of your suspected copyright infringement. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other applicable law, it is the policy of HopeCom to terminate, in appropriate circumstances, the user accounts of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.
