The mission of Fruitful Fertility is to facilitate one-on-one connections that are personal between individuals newly diagnosed with infertility and those who have already completed their infertility journey. We offer the Fruitful Fertility One-to-One Mentorship Matching Program (“Program”) to help individuals who are newly diagnosed connect with those who have already completed their infertility journey. This Agreement (which we refer to as “the Terms”) applies to your participation in the Program. In the Terms, we sometimes use “we,” “us” and “our” to refer to Fruitful Fertility; “Mentee” to refer to each of the participants seeking help in the Program; and “Mentor” to refer to the individuals who offer to guide “Mentees” in the Program. We also refer to the Mentee and Mentor who are paired in the Program as “partners,” “matches,” “you,” and “your.” The term “personal information” means (1) information that can be used to determine, distinguish or trace an individual‘s identity, such as name, e-mail address, address, phone number, age, and (2) any other information that is linked or linkable to an individual, such as medical and employment information.

If you choose to close your Match or request a new Mentor or Mentee, or cancel your participation in the Program, please notify us via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Commitments and Rights
If we accept your application, we will use the personal information you provided in your application, and personal information obtained from other applicants to attempt to pair you with an appropriate Program partner or match. We will use reasonable efforts to pair every Mentee with a Mentor. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so, or how quickly one can be available to you. In some cases we may be unable to find an appropriate Mentor for a Mentee.
We may update the Terms at any time by posting them on the Fruitful Fertility website. By continuing to participate in the Program after the Terms are updated, you agree to the updated Terms
We may disclose your personal information if we deem it necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation, to enforce these Terms, or to protect our rights or the rights of other parties such as Program participants.
These privacy, confidentiality, and security obligations will survive termination of your participation in the Program or Fruitful Fertility services.
The Program and our Services are provided “as is.” We do not make any specific promises or warranties about the value or benefits of the Program, or the conduct of your Mentor or Mentee or other Program participants except as stated in these Terms.

We are not a Covered Entity or Business Associate, as such terms are defined by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and its implementing regulations (“HIPAA”). This means that we are not subject to HIPAA and are not required to comply with its privacy, security, or breach notification requirements. However, we are committed to protecting your personal information and will comply with our obligations as set forth in these Terms.
