These Terms of Service (the "Terms of Service") govern your use of the Site, both as a casual visitor and as a registered user.

BY VISITING, USING THE SITE, AND/OR BY REGISTERING WITH US (EACH, A "USER"), YOU SIGNIFY THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, including that you consent to the information practices disclosed in our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference, and that you consent to resolve in the State of New York any dispute that you may have with us, or the Site.

Effective as of October 17, 2014.

1. About the Site

Everything we offer on the Site is referred to in these Terms of Service collectively as the "Services". Some of what is on the Site is viewable without registering with us, but to actively participate or store your information, you must register as a registrant and authorize the use and disclosure of your personal and health information, if applicable, (or if you are the designated representative of a client, the client's personal and health information) for purposes of allowing us to provide the Services and as otherwise disclosed in our Privacy Policy.

2. We Do Not Provide Medical or Care Management Advice

The information, which includes the content, text, data, graphics, images, information, suggestions, guidance, and other material that you obtain or receive from SeniorHabitat, and its employees, contractors, partners, sponsors, advertisers, licensors, facilities, hospital discharge planners or otherwise on the Site (collectively, the "Information") is for informational and scheduling purposes only. All medically or care management related information comes from independent health care professionals, hospital discharge planners and facilities.

3. No Facility User Relationship

NO FACILITY USER RELATIONSHIP IS CREATED BY USING INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OR THROUGH THE USE OF THE SITE OR THROUGH ANY OTHER COMMUNICATIONS FROM SENIORHABITAT INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE "FIND A FACILITY" AND/OR OUR BLOG AND FORUM FEATURES, LINKS TO OTHER SITES OR ANY ASSISTANCE WE MAY PROVIDE TO HELP YOU FIND AN APPROPRIATE FACILITY IN ANY FIELD.

WE MAKE NO GUARANTEES, REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS, EXPERTISE, QUALITY OF SERVICES OR OTHER INFORMATION REGARDING A NURSING HOME, ASSISTED LIVING OR OTHER SENIOR FACILITIES LISTED ON THE SITE (EACH, A "FACILITY") LISTED ON THE SITE. FURTHERMORE, WE DO NOT IN ANY WAY ENDORSE ANY FACILITY LISTED ON THE SITE. IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY DECISION MADE OR ACTION TAKEN BY YOU IN RELIANCE ON SUCH INFORMATION.

You are strongly advised to perform your own investigation prior to selecting a Facility by making confirming telephone calls to the appropriate licensing authorities to verify listed licensures, and to further verify information about a Facility by confirming with the Facility, healthcare providers, and the state licensing board.

4. Authorization and Acknowledgement; Important Information About Facilities and Lists

In connection with using the Site and the Services to locate and schedule appointments or tours with the facilities, you understand that:

YOU ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR CHOOSING YOUR OWN FACILITY (IF YOU ARE THE CLIENT) OR YOUR CLIENT'S FACILITY (IF YOU ARE THE DESIGNATED REPRESENTATIVE OF THE CLIENT).

SeniorHabitat will provide you with lists and/or profile previews of Facilities that may be suitable to deliver the housing and services that you are seeking based on information that you provide to SeniorHabitat (such as insurance information, proximity to your geographical location, and type of Facilities). In an effort to aid in the discovery of Facilities and enable the maximum choice and diversity of Facilities who participate in the Services, these lists and/or profile previews may also be based on other criteria (including, for example, Facilities availability, past selections by and/or ratings of Facilities by you or by other SeniorHabitat Members, and past experience of SeniorHabitat Members with Facilities); but SeniorHabitat (i) does not recommend or endorse any Facilities and (ii) does not make any representations or warranties with respect to these Facilities or the quality of the housing and services they may provide.

SeniorHabitat uses reasonable efforts to ensure that Facilities only participate in the Services if they are licensed, regulated, and/or registered by a State agency. SeniorHabitat may also exclude Facilities that, in SeniorHabitat's discretion, have engaged in inappropriate or unprofessional conduct.

If you elect to enter information during the registration process regarding your medical condition or a third party's medical condition (of which you have authorization from such third party to provide such information), on your request you authorize us to provide such medical condition information to the specified Facilities. You acknowledge and agree that such information will be reviewed and approved by you or someone authorized on your behalf at the time of your appointment to ensure its accuracy. You also acknowledge that SeniorHabitat may use the data or medical condition information you provide in accordance with its Privacy Policy.

5. Editorial Control

We make the Site available as a service to clients, facility providers and hospital discharge planners for the purposes of providing an informative, educational and administrative resource. We may, but have no obligation to, have Information posted on the Site reviewed by the Site's editorial personnel. It is important to note, however, that the timeliness and accuracy of any or all of the Information is not guaranteed. We can not assure you that the Information contained herein is in every respect accurate or complete, and we are not responsible for any errors or omissions or for the results obtained from the use of such Information.

You are encouraged to independently confirm the Information contained herein with other sources.

FACILITY INFORMATION: Facility information found on the Site is intended for general reference purposes only. Facility information found on the Site is both self-reported, by the Facility and/or office staff, and collected from multiple other data sources that may not be confirmed by the Facility. Such information often changes frequently and may become out of date or inaccurate. SeniorHabitat does not provide any advice or qualification certification about any particular Facility. Our relationship with Facilities in a particular area is based on criteria we establish. You are encouraged to independently verify any such information.

The address of SeniorHabitat's Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement ("Designated Agent") is provided at the bottom of this section.

SeniorHabitat's Policy. 
It is SeniorHabitat's policy to (a) block access to or remove material that it believes in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, Registrants or Users; and (b) remove and discontinue Service to repeat offenders.

Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements. 
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Site or the Services infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below ("Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification"):
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
Identification of works or materials being infringed;
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that SeniorHabitat is capable of finding and verifying its existence;

Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;
A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.

Upon Receipt of a Bona Fide Infringement Notification. 
Once a Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification is received by the Designated Agent, it is SeniorHabitat's policy:

to remove or disable access to the infringing material;
to notify the content provider, Registrant or User that it has removed or disabled access to the material; and
that for repeat offenders, SeniorHabitat will also terminate such content provider's, Registrant's or User's access to the Service.

Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent. 
If the content provider, Registrant or User believes that the material that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or the content provider, Registrant or User believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, the content provider, Registrant or User must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:

A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, Registrant or User;
Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
A statement that the content provider, Registrant or User has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the material; and
The content provider's, Registrant's or User's name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider's, Registrant's or User's address is located, or if the content provider's, Registrant's or User's address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which SeniorHabitat is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

Removal. 
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, SeniorHabitat may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, Registrant or User, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at SeniorHabitat's discretion.

23. Choice of Law and Dispute Resolution

You and Senior Habitat agree that we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Terms of Service or the Service in accordance with this Section or as you and Senior Habitat otherwise agree in writing.
