YV reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.

7. Featured Youth. The Site allows for certain individuals meeting the requirements below to become members of the LifeSet Network and create profiles (each such member a “Featured Youth”) and create a product registry (each such registry, a “Featured Youth Registry”). A Featured Youth must be 18–23 years old, must currently be involved in the foster care system (or have been involved in the foster care system between the ages of 17 and 23), must currently have a specific goal in life, must currently have a specific material need that will help him or her meet his or her goal, must be connected with an agency or organization that refers youth to the LifeSet Network and has approved the individual by giving him or her a unique registration code, and must have reliable access to a computer with internet. Individuals completing applications to become Featured Youth by completing the registration process must agree that they meet all of the criteria specified above. We reserve the right to modify the Profiles of Featured Youth to correct errors, and to remove information that is too personal or might otherwise inappropriately identify the individual, that violates our rules of conduct, or for any other reason we deem necessary. We may display such information differently from the way it appears when it is entered, and we have no obligation to display the Profile (as defined below) or any specific aspect or feature of the Profile in the future.

8. Donations. The Site may include functionality that allows you to make donations (each such donation, a “Transaction”) (any person making a Transaction being a “Supporter”). Such functionality may include Transactions in which you may elect to donate to a Featured Youth. In doing so, you may direct your donation toward specific items on a Featured Youth Registry or you may make a general donation to the Featured Youth and YV will decide which items on the Featured Youth Registry your Transaction will be directed toward. Such functionality may also include Transactions in which you may elect to donate to YV. You may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Transaction, including without limitation your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD(S) UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY TRANSACTION. By submitting such information, you grant YV the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Transactions initiated by you or on your behalf. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction. For each Transaction directed toward purchasing a specific item on a Featured Youth Registry, following verification, and subject to Sections 9-10 below, YV will purchase the item from the Featured Youth Registry for delivery to the applicable Featured Youth once sufficient funds have been gathered to purchase items on the youth’s list. If the applicable Featured Youth has dropped out of the LifeSet Network, the price of the item has decreased leaving a surplus difference between the donation amount and the cost of the registry item chosen to be donated, or such donation is otherwise not possible, YV reserves the right to allocate the amount of the donation or surplus, as applicable, to a different Featured Youth in the LifeSet Network, provided that such donation will not be used toward the general administrative budget of YV. If the price of an item changes between the time the donation is made and the time YV purchases the item, YV will use reasonable efforts to fulfill the order of that item using surpluses from other donations or other YV resources. Any applicable transaction costs or merchant account fees will be subtracted from your Transaction before such Transaction will be directed towards a Featured Youth, product(s) on a Featured Youth Registry or YV All Transactions are final. YV will not provide you with a reimbursement, credit or refund for all or any portion of your Transaction. YV reserves the right to use a third party payment service (collectively with such third party payment service’s service providers, the “Third Party Payment Service”) to collect payments for such Transactions. To facilitate such a Transaction, you may be directed to a website hosted by the Third Party Payment Service and not by YV (the “Third Party Payment Service Page”). Your use of the Third Party Payment Service Page will be subject to the Third Party Payment Service’s user agreement and privacy policy, not this Agreement or our Privacy Policy. You acknowledge and agree that we are not, and will not be, responsible or liable for the Third Party Payment Service’s services, its site or any acts or omissions of the Third Party Payment Service. We reserve the right to discontinue or change any third party payment service used in connection with this Site.

9. Products, Content and Specifications. Descriptions and images of, and references to, third-party products or services available in connection with the Site, including, without limitation, any item in a Featured Youth Registry, do not imply YV’s endorsement of such third-party products or services nor does it imply the endorsement by such third parties of YV. All descriptions, images, references, features, content, specifications, products and prices of products and services described or depicted on this Site, including, without limitation, any item in a Featured Youth Registry, are subject to change at any time without notice. Certain prices, weights, measures and similar descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only. The inclusion of any products or services on this Site, including, without limitation, any item in a Featured Youth Registry, at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products or services will be available at any time. YV is not responsible for, and hereby disclaims any responsibility for, ascertaining and obeying all applicable local, state, federal and international laws (including minimum age requirements) in regard to the possession, use and sale of any item in any Featured Youth Registry. YV reserves the right, with or without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue any product or service; to substitute or modify any item in any Featured Youth Registry; to bar any user from making any or all Transaction(s); and/or to refuse to provide any user with any product or service.

10. Shipping Limitations. For each Transaction directed toward purchasing a specific item on a Featured Youth Registry, YV will coordinate the delivery of the item to the Featured Youth for which it was designated. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that YV will not be liable to you for any claims, demands, losses, costs, or expenses arising from or relating to the shipment or delivery of such items to the Featured Youth.

11. Accuracy of Information. Our goal is that information on this Site will be complete, accurate and current. We reserve the right to make edits and modifications to information and posts submitted by users to attempt to meet our goal of accuracy and to fix typographical errors, as well as for other purposes outlined elsewhere in this Agreement. Despite our goal, the information on this Site may be inaccurate, incomplete or out of date. We make no representation as to the completeness, accuracy or currentness of any information on this Site and you agree that we will not be liable for your use of or reliance on such information. For example, Submissions provided by other Site users may be incomplete or may not accurately reflect true information about such other Site users. We rely on Transition Resource Partners and other organizations in verifying the accuracy of information and the qualifications of individuals to become Featured Youths. We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy of the information received from such third parties or the accuracy of their vetting process. Further, products included on this Site, including, without limitation, any item in a Featured Youth Registry, may be unavailable, may have different attributes than those listed, or may actually carry a different price than that stated on this Site. In addition, we may make changes in information about price and availability without notice. While it is our practice to confirm Transactions and other donations or contributions by email, the receipt of an email confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of a Transaction or other donation or contribution or our confirmation of an offer to purchase a product or service on a Featured Youth’s behalf. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to refuse service to any user of this Site. We also may require verification of information prior to the acceptance and/or completion of any Transaction.

12. Registration; User Names and Passwords. You may be required to register with YV in order to access certain Services or areas of the Site.

If you are interested in becoming a Featured Youth, you must meet certain criteria set forth above under “Featured Youth” and submit an application to YV.

13. Entity Partners.&nbps;YV allows certain organizational entities to provide links to opportunities and resources and to interact with other Site users by creating Profiles (as defined below). Such entities include providers of transition resources to Featured Youth (each a “Transition Resource Partner”) approved by YV as well as organizations that offer special deals and opportunities on the Site to Featured Youth (each an “Opportunity Partner”). YV may change the relevant criteria for becoming a Transition Resource Partner or Opportunity Partner at any time. Those organizations who are approved to become Opportunity Partners may post offers, deals, and opportunities, provided that they do so in the manner provided for by YV through the Site. For the avoidance of doubt, YV grants the right to use the Site for commercial purposes to these entities and this provision shall constitute the written consent required by the “Rules of Conduct” above, but solely to the extent that such entities follow all guidelines set forth by YV in providing postings of opportunities (and that such entities do not engage in spamming or harassing users in any way, including with unwanted posts on their Profiles). YV reserves the right to revoke any Opportunity Partner of Transition Resource Partner’s membership at any time, which may include the revocation of the right to use the Site for commercial purposes and/or the removal of such entity’s username, Profile and posts.

14. Profiles and Forums. If you are a Featured Youth, Supporter, Transition Resource Partner, or Opportunity Partner you may post certain information and materials on your profile page (your “Profile”). Further, we and/or our service providers may make available through the Site services (for example, messaging functionality and comment functionality on the Site, including, without limitation, through Facebook, Twitter and other Third Party Platforms, among other services) to which all users are able to post information and materials (each, a “Forum”).

Information contained in the Profiles and Forums may be provided to employees of YV and the Affiliated Entities as well as to other visitors to the Site Please note that users and other Site visitors may post messages or make statements in the Profiles and Forums that are inaccurate, misleading or deceptive.

The opinions expressed in the Profiles and Forums reflect solely the opinions of the individuals who submitted such opinions, and may not reflect the opinions of YV.

We nonetheless reserve the right to delete, remove, or otherwise refuse to display any posts we deem to be inappropriate, in violation of the “Rules of Conduct” above, or for any other reason that we decide in our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to modify or display in a different manner any post. If you post on the Profile of a particular user, that user will also have the right and ability to remove your post for any reason (or for no reason) that such user decides in their sole discretion.

In addition, YV Entities have no control over, and will have no liability for, any damages resulting from the use (including without limitation republication) or misuse by any third party of information voluntarily made public through a Profile or a Forum or any other part of the Site. IF YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR OTHER INFORMATION AND CONTENT PUBLICLY AVAILABLE IN A PROFILE OR A FORUM OR OTHERWISE ON THE SITE, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

28. Claims of Copyright Infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Site infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send YV a notice requesting that YV remove the material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send YV a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details), and should minimally contain the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
  • Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit YV to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Notices and counter-notices should be sent to: 
Office of the General Counsel, Youth Villages, Inc., 3320 Brother Blvd., Memphis, TN 38133
