USER DISCLAIMER, DISCLOSURE, ACKNOWLEDGMENT, AND AUTHORIZATION FORM
CraveFreedom, a ministry of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention and (collectively, “Crave”), is committed to helping protect you (“User” or “You”) while using the CraveFreedom website, its resources, and its services. To use CraveFreedom and its resources, You must read and approve this User Disclaimer, Disclosure, Acknowledgment, and Authorization Form (“Disclaimer Form”). This Disclaimer Form sets forth important information about CraveFreedom and the parties’ rights, duties, and obligations. Please read and accept the terms of this Disclaimer Form to access and use CraveFreedom.
User acknowledges and agrees that User is at least the age of fourteen (14) years, and that User voluntarily chooses to use the CraveFreedom site. Due to the sensitive nature of this website and the topics contained therein, persons less than age of fourteen (14) are not permitted to access or use this site. Crave will never track or disclose User’s age to any party unless otherwise required by law. User acknowledges and agrees to not disclose User’s age to any unauthorized parties.
User understands that, for security purposes, the CraveFreedom site requires a username, email, and password for access and use. Crave shall not disclose this information to any party unless otherwise required by law. User acknowledges and agrees to protect User’s account information from unauthorized disclosure.
User acknowledges and agrees that Crave is not liable for any harm related to the theft of User’s username, email, or password, User’s disclosure of User’s username, email, or password, or User’s authorization to allow another person or entity to access and use the CraveFreedom site with User’s username, email, or password. User also agrees to immediately notify CraveFreedom of any unauthorized use of User’s username, email, or password, or of any other need to deactivate User’s account due to security concerns.
The CraveFreedom website includes an opportunity for User to contact or interact with a non-Crave third party “mentor.” A “mentor” is not an employee, agent, volunteer, or otherwise affiliated person with, or of, Crave. Crave does not endorse or recommend any “mentor” for any purpose for any reason. User acknowledges and agrees that Crave makes no representations or warranties whatsoever, either expressed or implied, about any “mentor” on CraveFreedom.
Crave does not conduct background checks or any other review of any kind regarding any third-party “mentor” or “mentee” on CraveFreedom. User acknowledges and agrees that User is solely responsible for all communications, interactions, and other activities with any CraveFreedom “mentor” or “mentee,” and Crave is not responsible for any damages whatsoever to User for any “mentor” or “mentee” occurrences.
Each state has child abuse reporting requirements related to acts, information or suspicions of abuse or neglect. These reporting statutes are often very broad, and every “mentor” must understand the appropriate reporting obligations. Accordingly, each CraveFreedom “mentor” acknowledges and agrees that the “mentor” is responsible to know and follow the child abuse reporting requirements in mentor’s state (and the mentee’s state, if mentor and mentee are in different states). In Texas, for example, all adults are required to report suspicions of abuse or neglect. Even though the “mentee" may not be a minor, a disclosure of abuse or neglect as a minor may still require a report in some states. It is also important to note that in most states, there are criminal penalties for failure to make a report if an obligation existed.
User acknowledges and agrees to disclaim Crave from any and all liability, without limitation, related to any “mentor” or “mentee” on CraveFreedom.
USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT USER RELEASES, HOLDS HARMLESS, AND INDEMNIFIES CRAVE FROM ANY LIABILITY, CLAIMS, DEMANDS, CAUSES OF ACTION, DAMAGES, OR EXPENSES RESULTING FROM: (1) ANY USE OF THE CRAVEFREEDOM WEBSITE, ITS CONTENT, OR ITS SERVICES; (2) ANY RELEASE OF USER INFORMATION FROM OR BY CRAVE, ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, VOLUNTEERS, OR AGENTS; (3) ANY INTERACTION WHATSOEVER, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, BETWEEN USER AND ANY THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING A “MENTOR” OR “MENTEE,” THROUGH CRAVEFREEDOM; AND (4) ANY OTHER USE OF CRAVEFREEDOM BY USER, WITHOUT LIMITATION.
User acknowledges and agrees that Crave makes no representations or warranties, either expressed or implied, to User that User will be successful, in any manner to any extent, in obtaining a positive outcome or result by using the CraveFreedom site, its resources, or its services. Crave makes no warranties or representations of any kind regarding CraveFreedom, its website, services, resources, or related content whatsoever.
Any and all claims or disputes arising from or related to this Agreement, other than a claim for injunctive relief, shall first be submitted to mediation Harris County, Texas in accordance with the then governing rules of The Institute for Christian Conciliation. If the parties cannot resolve their dispute through mediation, they shall have the issue resolved through arbitration with the then governing rules of The Institute for Christian Conciliation. In the event that the Institute for Christian Conciliation ceases to exist during the course of this Agreement, arbitration under this section shall be conducted according to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Judgment upon an arbitration award may be entered in the District Court for the County of Harris, Texas. Church and Employee shall bear their own costs related to any mediation or arbitration proceeding.
User acknowledges and agrees that this website is for informational purposes only. Use of this website and the information contained herein does not create a pastor-congregant, doctor-patient, counselor-counselee, employer-employee, attorney-client, or any other formal relationship recognized under the law between Crave and User. Prior results with CraveFreedom do not guarantee a similar or positive outcome.
User hereby acknowledges and agrees that User has read and therefore accepts all of the terms in this Disclaimer Form.
