Welcome to the MASK website!
Information regarding any issue involving your school-aged children is very important. We are excited to help you gather such information. Please explore our website (the "Site"), and when you're ready, we hope you will get involved with MASK.
We do not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or advice or recommendations about what providers to use. The Site is an informational resource for you, and we hope a valuable one, but decisions about you and your children should be made in consultation with your personal health care providers, whom you choose based on your own needs.
Please carefully review the following rules before you use this Site.
The following terms constitute an agreement between you and MASK ("we" or "us"). This agreement ("Terms of Service") governs your use of the Site, both as a visitor and as a donor or volunteer.
1. About the Site
The Site contains a range of information and tools relating to your school-aged children. There are articles, links, images and other content ("Content") we have written or were granted the right to use from outside sources. There also may be (or in the future there might be) user submitted Content, such as blogs, stories, forum postings and ratings. Content submitted is not reviewed or verified by us. Everything we offer on the Site is referred to in these Terms of Service collectively as "the Services."
2. Changes to These Terms of Service
These Terms of Service govern your relationship with us and our suppliers. In our discretion, we may change these Terms of Service at any time. If we make changes that we believe will have a material impact on your use of the Site and Services, we will let you know by sending you an email if we have a current email address for you, and by noting on the Site that the Terms of Service have been updated. If you disagree with the changes to these Terms of Service, you can always discontinue your use of the Site. We recommend that you print or copy any information you have stored through the Services prior to cancelling. Your ongoing use of any Service or of the Site after the changes take effect signifies your agreement to the new terms. We encourage you to review the Terms of Service regularly.
3. Your Privacy
Please do not provide any confidential information (including health information) about you or anyone to us via electronic communication. Any information you do submit will not be sold to any third parties. If we publish any information you provide to us on the website, we will not disclose personally identifiable information.
When you visit the Site, we also may automatically collect non-identifying information about you, such as the type of browser or computer operating system you use or the domain name of the site from which you linked to us. Such automatically collected information may be maintained indefinitely and used for our internal business and marketing purposes, such as assessing traffic patterns and usage of various features on the Site, but will not be sold or otherwise disclosed to third parties for any purposes. Notwithstanding any other statements or representations here or elsewhere on our site, we reserve the right to disclose any information in its possession if it is required to do so by law, or it believes, in good faith, that such a disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, defend its rights or property, or to respond to an emergency situation.

Certain Services on the Site may have additional terms (such as policies, guidelines, and rules) that will further govern your use of that particular Service and supplement these Terms of Service. If you choose to register for or access any such Service, you will be presented with any relevant additional terms and conditions at that time.

7. Content You Post or Submit
The Site may include a community area, where members can post messages, information, and images ("Postings") such as forums, blogs, and personal stories, that can be accessed and viewed by others, including the public in general. If you submit Postings keep in mind that they are not confidential and that they will be designated as modules that can be clipped and pasted on other personal and community websites. Please be thoughtful with your Postings, and avoid offending others or infringing their rights. You may only post Postings to public areas on the Site that you created or that you have permission to post. You may not post Postings that violate these Terms of Service, and we reserve the right to block your ability to post and/or to access the Site and Services if you do.
You (or the author) continue to own the copyright in your Postings but, by submitting Postings to public areas of the Site, you grant us and our affiliates the right to use, copy, display, perform, distribute (through multiple tiers of distributors), adapt, translate, edit, and promote your Postings in any medium and any manner we choose, and to use your display name to attribute your postings to you if we so choose.
While some community areas are monitored for topicality, we have no obligation to prescreen Postings, and are not responsible for their content. We encourage you to notify us of inappropriate or illegal content by using the Report Abuse link in community areas, and we reserve the right to remove Postings for any reason. We are not, however, responsible for any failure or delay in removing Postings. Keep in mind that the Postings of others are simply their opinions and you should not rely on them.
In addition to Postings, you may submit feedback to us. We welcome your feedback regarding our Site and Services. You agree that we may use in any manner and without limitation all comments, suggestions, complaints and other feedback you provide relating to the Site or Services, and that we will own all intellectual property that we create based upon or incorporating your feedback.
