If these terms of service are considered an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms of service.

“Book marking” or “linking” to a page on this server/site whereby this warning page is by-passed shall constitute an implicit acceptance of these terms of service.

The headings used in this agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these terms.

 

SECTION 1 – DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

By accessing WireOfHope.com or using our services, you expressly understand and agree that:

Wire of Hope does not guarantee any specific results to its users and does not warrant that the results that may be obtained from the use of the service will be accurate or reliable. Your use of or inability to use the service is at your own risk. The service and all products and services delivered to you through Wire of Hope are (except as expressly stated by us) provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ for your use, without any representation, warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, durability, title, non-infringement of proprietary rights. From time to time we may remove or cancel one or all of our services for indefinite periods of time for no or any reason, at any time, without notice to you.

Without limiting the foregoing, Wire of Hope, its affiliates, agents, contractors, suppliers, service providers, licensors and partners do not warrant that the Wire of Hope’s service will be available, uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free, that defects will be corrected or that the service provided or the server that makes it available is free of viruses or other harmful components.

Certain contents, products and services available via WireOfHope.com may include materials from third-parties. Third-party links on this site may direct you to third-party websites that are not affiliated with us. Wire of Hope is not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy and we do not warrant and will not have any liability or responsibility for any third-party materials or websites, or for any other materials, contents, products, or services of third-parties. We are not liable for any harm or damages related to the purchase or use of goods, services, resources, contents, or any other transactions made in connection with any third-party websites, including the collection, handling and sharing of personal information that you provided to third-parties. Please review carefully the third-party’s policies and practices and make sure you understand them before you engage in any transaction. Complaints, claims, concerns, disputes or questions regarding third-party products or services should be directed to the third-party directly. If you happen to have a dispute with a third-party relating to Wire of Hope, you hereby release Wire of Hope and its directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers and interns from any claims, causes of action and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute.

Wire of Hope and all of its associates accept no responsibility for the truth or accuracy of any statement made by advertisers, third-parties, respondents/pen-friends and inmates. Wire of Hope strongly recommends all of its users, respondents/pen-friends and inmates, to take all preventive measures and safeguards possible when engaging in a correspondence, including, but not limited to, the measures described in our FAQ, our tips for inmates, our tips for respondents, and our precautionary measures. By engaging in a correspondence, you agree to be at least 18 years of age (or the age of majority in your state or province of residence, if that age is set above 18) and hold Wire of Hope and its directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, interns, affiliates, contractors, suppliers, service providers, licensors and partners harmless from all costs, liabilities, damages and attorney fees, resulting from or caused by the use or misuse of our service. Wire of Hope strongly encourages its users to verify all information provided through additional sources, including outside of the United States if necessary for users abroad. Note that at any time the respondent/pen-friend can directly contact the correctional institution about one of their inmates.

By using Wire of Hope, users must understand that at no point Wire of Hope is the publisher of any information contained in the inmate profiles, only the provider of a space for the inmates to place a profile online. In no event will Wire of Hope be responsible for any incidental, consequential, exemplary or other damage arising from or relating to the use or misuse of its services.

Inmates must verify with their administration that they are allowed to use our service before placing a profile on Wire of Hope. Some correctional facilities prohibit inmates from using our service. Transgressing the rule could result in punitive or legal consequences for the inmate. In no event will Wire of Hope be held responsible for theses consequences.

In no case shall Wire of Hope and its directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, interns, affiliates, contractors, suppliers, service providers, licensors and partners be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use or your inability to use any of the services and/or products procured using Wire of Hope, or for any other claim related in any way to your use or your inability to use the services and/or product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use or misuse of the service or in your interactions with other users of Wire of Hope.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions or limitations may not apply to you, and you might have additional rights.
