Terms

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 Matching Program (“Program”) to help individuals who are newly diagnosed connect with volunteers who have experienced infertility firsthand. 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 each of the volunteers 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.


Your Commitments and Rights

You agree to abide by the Terms and our Privacy Policy while participating in the Program. You understand that if you violate the Terms or our Privacy Policy, Fruitful Fertility has the right to terminate your participation in the Program.

You agree to pay your own expenses of participating in the Program.

You have the right to close your match with your Mentor or Mentee, request a different Match, or cancel your participation in the Program at any time. 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 help@fruitfulfertility.co.

As a Mentor, you are acting as an uncompensated volunteer. You are not an employee, independent contractor, or agent of Fruitful Fertility when you participate in the Program, and you have no authority to act on behalf of Fruitful Fertility.

You agree to the Limitation of Liability below, which applies to your participation in the Program.

You acknowledge that 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.

Privacy and Confidentiality: You agree to protect the privacy, confidentiality, and security of personal information regarding your Mentee, Mentor, and Fruitful Fertility, as provided in the Terms and Privacy Policy. These privacy, confidentiality, and security obligations will survive termination of your participation in the Program.

All personal information that you receive from your partner must be used in accordance with our Terms and Privacy Policy. You agree to keep all personal information about your partner confidential, including the personal information that you receive from us regarding your partner. Personal information regarding your partner must not be disclosed by you to other Fruitful Fertility Mentors, Mentees, Fruitful Fertility staff, or any third party, or used by you for any purpose other than to participate in the Program, without your partner’s express written permission. Mentees and Mentors may decide to share personal information with one another beyond what they provide to us. They do so at their own discretion and risk and not as our agents. We do not collect or maintain information that Mentees and Mentors share with each other while participating in the Program.

You must keep any paper or electronic information that includes personal information regarding your Program partner in a safe and secure place, and take reasonable steps to protect it from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

You agree not to use the Program, Fruitful Fertility’s website, social media, or personal information regarding a Mentee or Mentor to harass, violate the privacy, or harm or threaten to harm any Mentor, Mentee, or Fruitful Fertility in any way.


Our Commitments and Rights

We reserve the right to refuse to accept Mentor and Mentee applicants for any reason, including if we have a reasonable basis to believe that an applicant is not a current or former infertility patient or has provided incomplete or inaccurate information. If you violate the Terms or our Privacy Policy, we have the right to terminate your participation in the Program.

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

Privacy and Confidentiality: We will maintain and protect the confidentiality, privacy, and security of the personal information you provide us in your application and as part of the Program, and safeguard the information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure as provided in the Terms and our Privacy Policy and as required by applicable laws. We will only use and maintain personal information you provide us in your application to pair you with a Mentor or Mentee, and provide you with our other Program-related services such as local events, webinars and information.

When we help a Mentee and Mentor connect so they can participate in our Program, we provide each of them the personal contact information about the other that we collected from their applications for the Program. Before doing so, we require that both the Mentor and Mentee accept and agree to abide by the Terms and our Privacy Policy.

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.

There are always potential risks when you are meeting new people. You are encouraged to consider and take reasonable precautions in your interactions and meetings with your Mentor or Mentee.
