Volunteer Mississippi Terms and Conditions
NOVEMBER 9, 2022
VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI provides this volunteer opportunity service platform and application (the “Service”) and this site (the “Site”) to volunteer centers, nonprofit organizations, universities and colleges, schools, governmental agencies, businesses, corporations, volunteers, or visitors to the Site (collectively referred to as “Users” and individually referred to as “User,” or “you”) exclusively under the following terms of service and use (the “Terms”). By using the Service, you affirm you are over the age of 13 and you have read and understand the Terms and agree to be bound thereby. We reserve the right to terminate a User’s Service at any time, for any reason, including without limitation, if we learn that a User has violated these Terms.
A. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
You agree not to reproduce, sell, resell, or exploit for any commercial or non-commercial purposes any portion of the Service or the Site. Without our written permission, you may not: (a) allow, enable, or otherwise support the transmission of mass unsolicited, commercial advertising or solicitations via e-mail; (b) access the Service or Site using any high-volume or automated means (including but not limited to robots, spiders, crawlers, and scripts); (c) place pop-up windows over its pages or otherwise affect the display of its pages; or (d) access the Site or the Service in any manner that violates these Terms.
All information you provide to us shall be true, accurate and current.
You agree not to use the Service or Site to: (a) violate any local, state, national, or international law; (b) impersonate any person or entity or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity; (c) stalk, harass, or harm another individual; (d) promote or glorify hatred, violence, or racial intolerance; (e) collect or store personal data about other Users without their explicit permission; or (f) disobey any requirements, procedures, policies, or regulations of networks connected to the Site or the Service; or interfere with or disrupt the Service, the Site, or servers or networks connected to the Service or the Site.
B. DATA SECURITY AND MONITORING
Data are supplied by Users and may include, but are not limited to, volunteer opportunity descriptions, organizations’ contact and other information, news, comments and recommendations, and photos. Accordingly, we have no editorial control over such data. Any data, services, offers, or other information provided by Users are those of the respective User and not VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI. We do not endorse, nor are we responsible for investigating or ensuring the accuracy of, any such data; and we retain the right to modify, update, designate as inactive, or remove any data at any time. We have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor and review the Users’ data to determine compliance with these Terms, laws, or regulations.
ALL volunteer opportunity service data submitted to the Site is published and searchable online and therefore is not private.
C. USER DATA; LICENSE; REPRESENTATION AND WARRANTY
The User is responsible for data provided to us for inclusion on the Site and as part of the Service. VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI acts as a passive distributor of the User’s data. However, if we believe the User’s data may create a liability for us, we reserve the right to remove data. The User warrants that User data or use of the Site and the Service: (a) does not and will not contain unlawful, harmful, libelous, threatening, malicious, discriminatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable material of any kind; (b) encourage conduct that could violate any applicable national, state, or local laws, regulations, ordinances, or codes; or that could constitute a criminal offense or give rise to civil liability; or (c) does not and will not violate any non-discrimination policy. The User represents and warrants that User has the rights to any original content, marks, or images that User posts to the Site. The User will not knowingly transmit computer viruses, worms, or harmful program routines or use the Site or the Service to access without authorization any other computer or machine.
D. USER RELATIONSHIPS & NON-DISCRIMATION
You agree VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage incurred as a result of any interaction or relationship with other Users, sponsors, or advertisers or as a result of such parties’ access to and use of the Site or Service. You agree to conform to VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI’s nondiscrimination policy in its interaction with other Users, including but not limited to consideration in qualifying for a volunteer opportunity. Specifically, Users may not discriminate based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, genetic information, familial status, disability, or veteran status in their use of the Service or the Site.
Links provided to other locations or websites are made available for your convenience only and do not indicate our endorsement of such other location or site or its data. We do not review or control and are not responsible for any websites other than VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI’s Site or Service, or any data available on or at such other websites or locations. We are not liable for any links, information, or applications found at any other website, Internet location, or source of information; nor are we liable for your use of such information.
F. MODIFICATIONS TO THE SERVICE
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the Service or the Site with or without notice to you. We are not liable to you or any third party should we exercise our right to modify or discontinue the Service or the Site. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse is to discontinue using the Service. Continued access and/or use of the Service or the Site following notice of any such changes shall indicate the User’s assent to and acceptance of such changes.
G. MODIFICATIONS TO TERMS
We may change the Terms from time to time by posting a notice of such changes on the Site or notifying you via e-mail. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the Service and/or the Site. Continued access to and/or use of the Service and/or the Site following notice of such modifications or changes shall indicate your assent to and acceptance of the Terms, including but not limited to all posted changes.
User agrees that we, at our sole discretion, may terminate the User’s use of the Service and/or the Site without prior notice and remove and discard User data from the Site and the Service for any reason, with or without prior notice; including, without limitation, if we believe that a User has violated or acted inconsistently with these Terms. Users agree that we shall not be liable to the User or any third party for termination of the User’s access to the Site or the Service. The User may discontinue their participation in and access to the Service at any time.
I. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
You expressly agree that use of the Service and the Site is at your own risk. The Site and the Service are provided on an “as available” and “as is” basis. The entire risk as to satisfactory quality, accuracy, performance, and results to be obtained through the use of the Site or the Service is with Users. No information or advice, whether oral or written, obtained by you from VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI or through the Site or the Service shall create any warranty not expressly made herein. VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI makes no warranty regarding any transactions or dealings entered into with any other parties through the Site or the Service. You understand and agree that any information downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Site or the Service is done at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer services or loss of data that results from the download of such information.
J. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI; ITS AFFILIATES; AND ITS RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, TRUSTEES, EMPLOYEES, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS, AND AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF THAT PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES) ARISING FROM BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, SUCH AS BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS OR LOST BUSINESS (COLLECTIVELY, “DISCLAIMED DAMAGES”).
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI, its affiliates, and its respective directors; officers; trustees; employees; independent contractors; and agents (“Indemnified Party”) from and against any losses, liabilities, suits, claims, costs, and expenses; including reasonable attorney’s fees (“Loss”); arising out of or relating to any claim, suit, judgment, or proceeding brought or asserted by any third party (“Claim”) alleging any breach of such party’s representations, warranties, or covenants under this Agreement. You shall indemnify and hold harmless VOLUNTEER MISSISSIPPI for any Loss arising out of or relating to (a) your violation of these Terms or the rights of any other User, (b) your use of the Site or the Service, (c) any information submitted or transmitted through the Site or Service, to include submissions that infringe on the copyright or other intellectual property of third parties, or (d) the transmission of computer viruses, worms, harmful program routines, or other similar items into the Site or the Service, or using the Site or the Service to access without authorization any other computer or machine. The Indemnified Party shall notify the Indemnifying Party of any such claim of which it becomes aware and shall: (x) at Indemnifying Party’s expense, provide reasonable cooperation to Indemnifying Party in connection with the defense or settlement of any such claim and (y) be entitled to participate in the defense of any such claim at its own expense with counsel of its own choosing.
These Terms contain the entire terms between the parties. In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, then such provision shall be severed from these Terms while the remaining terms shall remain binding on the parties hereto. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no contractual or legal effect. These Terms shall be governed by the laws of Mississippi and the United States, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action brought by you arising out of or related to the use of the Service or the Site, or specified in these Terms, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or shall be forever barred.
