Description of Service
The Volunteer Solutions Service (the "Service") is a service offered through this web site (the "Web Site"). The Service is available to prospective volunteers who register to use the Service ("Volunteers") and to legally incorporated nonprofit or government entities, schools, faith-based organizations, neighborhood associations recognized as such by the applicable city or county, and for-profit organizations that engage volunteers in direct client contact ("Volunteer Organizations"); collectively, Volunteer Organizations and Volunteers shall be referred to as "You" or "you". Through the Service, Volunteer Organizations agree to notify us of volunteer opportunities for your organization and provide us with their contact information, and we will notify Volunteers of volunteer opportunities that may match their interests and include the contact information in a database made available to Volunteers.
The Services are offered to more than one Volunteer Organization; Volunteer Organizations acknowledge that the Service is intended to facilitate Volunteer Organizations' ability to connect with potential Volunteers. Accordingly, these Terms of Service are non-exclusive, and nothing in these Terms of Service will be construed to prevent us from allowing other Volunteer Organizations from participating in the Service.
You agree to comply with any rules of operation and security procedures for the Service established by us from time to time. You agree that you will not attempt to gain or allow access to any data, files or programs to which they are not entitled under these Terms of Service, and that if such access is obtained you will immediately return such materials to us.
Either party may terminate these Terms of Service for convenience on thirty (30) days written notice to the other party. In addition, we may terminate your access to the Service immediately in the event of your breach of these Terms of Service.
