Service Terms and Conditions
Introduction and Acceptance
From time to time, the LIVESTRONG Foundation ("Foundation") may provide you with the opportunity to use certain services via one or more of its websites ("Services"). Some of these Services include the ability to use website development tools, to access a fundraising web space that can be personalized with your own content in order to create a personal webpage ("Personal Homepage"), and to create unique videos using Foundation-provided content and music as well as your own personal pictures ("Videos"). The term "Services" includes any tools, pictures, information, and other content provided by the Foundation in connection with the Services.
Please read these Service Terms carefully. From time to time and at its sole discretion, the Foundation reserves the right to change these Service Terms for any reason, with or without notice to you. However, if the Service Terms change, we will always post the revised Service Terms on our website www.LIVESTRONG.org (our "Main Website") or another website that we designate as the successor Main Website. This means that the then-current Service Terms posted on the Main Website will always be the governing Service Terms. We encourage you to review the Service Terms regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Services will mean acceptance of any changes we make to the Service Terms. You may view a printable version of these Service Terms by clicking here.
