Terms of Service

To post messages on these Forums, you must first register as a member. Registration is free of charge. By registering, you agree to abide by the following Terms of Membership:

When you register, you need to choose a unique "user name" and you must provide a unique, valid email address. Duplicate user names and email addresses are not allowed, so if the name or address you enter is already in use, you will be prompted to choose another one.

To prevent any member from using another's user name, each member's account is password protected. When you register, you will choose your own password. If you forget your password, a randomly generated password will be emailed to you.

These Forums, at its own discretion, may bar registration from any specific email service or ISP.

Any message posted on our Forums expresses only the views of the author of the message and does not necessarily reflect the views of these forums or any person or entity associated with them. These Forums use moderators and administrators to monitor the content and appearance of messages posted in our forums. However, considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for us to monitor or review every message. Therefore, you agree that neither these forums, nor any person or entity associated with them, will be held responsible for the contents, accuracy, completeness or validity of any information posted in them.

You agree that you will not use our forums to post any material, or links to any material, which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law.

You agree not to post any copyrighted material without the express permission of the copyright holder, unless such copyright is owned by you. Advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also inappropriate on these Forums.

We have the ability to edit and/or remove objectionable messages. Any user who believes that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. Each Forum will provide a moderator's email address to contact. Upon receipt of such notification, we will make every effort to take such action as we deem necessary within a reasonable period of time. Since this is a manual process, you are advised that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

These Forums reserve the right to edit or delete any message for any reason whatsoever, at our sole discretion. You agree that you are solely responsible for the content of your messages and that you will indemnify and hold harmless these Forums, Cancer Care Inc., and their agents and employees with respect to any claim based upon the appearance and/or transmission of your message(s).

CancerCare collects information from the online forums (including posts) to study, analyze, and improve the services we provide, and to advance cancer related research conducted alone or in collaboration with other organizations or individuals. Information will be shared with third parties (which may include but is not restricted to individual research partners or organizations) only after personally identifiable information such as name, address, telephone number, or username has been removed by our web-related service providers.

By registering for an online support group, you will automatically receive CancerCare's monthly E-Newsletter.

In the event of any complaint about inappropriate use or posts or in case of legal action arising from any message posted by you, these Forums reserve the right to reveal your identity and any other information we may know about you to comply with due process.

Thank you for joining our Forums.
