Terms of service
Please read carefully before using this site. If you do not agree to the terms set forth here, please do not use this website.
Personal and Noncommercial Use
The website is for your personal and noncommercial use. As a condition to your continued use of the website, you warrant to Gulf Coast that you will not use the website for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms. Certain information available through the website may relate to various laws. Such information should not be considered legal or financial advice. Gulf Coast is not acting as your lawyer or financial advisor. Donors should seek independent professional advice before finalizing a donation to Gulf Coast.
Use by Persons under 13 is Restricted
In accordance with federal law and the guidelines set up by the Federal Trade Commission regarding youth privacy, Gulf Coast will not knowingly collect any personal information from young people under the age of 13. This website is restricted to users over the age of 13. Users 13 or under are welcome to visit this website but should not attempt to participate as an advisor or donor to Foundation funds without contacting Gulf Coast to obtain parent or guardian consent or otherwise submit any personal information.
Disclaimer of Warranties
Without limiting the foregoing, everything on the website is provided to you "as is" and "as available" without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, covering the accuracy of the information contained within the website. Gulf Coast makes no warranties about the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of the website content, software text, graphics, and links, or about results to be obtained from using the website or Foundation services.
Limitation of Liability
In no event shall Gulf Coast or any third parties mentioned on the website be liable for any costs, damages and expenses whatsoever (including, without limitation, incidental and consequential damages, lost profits or damages resulting from lost data or business interruption) resulting from the use or inability to use the website or the content of the website, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory, and whether or not Gulf Coast is advised of the possibility of such damages. Gulf Coast shall be liable to you only for gross negligence or willful misconduct and only to the extent of actual damages incurred by you, not to exceed U.S. $100.00 (one hundred dollars).
Because some states and countries do not allow the exclusion of limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. Remedies under this agreement are exclusive and are limited to those expressly provided for in this agreement.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Gulf Coast, its officers, directors, employees and agents, sponsors and grantees, licensors, vendors and suppliers harmless from and against any claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of the website in a manner that violates or is alleged to violate these Terms.
You agree that Gulf Coast may terminate your use of the website if Gulf Coast reasonably believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms, or violated the rights of Gulf Coast or any third party or for any reason with or without notice to you. You agree that Gulf Coast may modify or discontinue the website, with or without notice to you. You agree that Gulf Coast will not be liable to you or any third party as a result of such modification or discontinuation.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition.
Gulf Coast may deliver notice to you under these Terms by means of electronic mail, a general notice on the website, or by written communication delivered by first class U.S. mail if you are donor to, or advisor regarding, a fund administered by Gulf Coast.
