Always use caution when giving out any personally identifiable information about yourself or others in any Communication Services. ALS Care Connection does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Services and, therefore, ALS Care Connection specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Services.

Connections with Others
Through the Service, we provide tools that enable our members to arrange to provide services to or receive services from others, and such service may involve direct physical meeting or interaction at your home, the home of another member or other location. We do not supervise any of these services or any locations at which services may be provided, and we are not involved in any way with the actions of any members who provide or receive services or meet in connection with such services. As a result, we have no control over the identity or actions of the members who provide or receive services or meet in connection with such services, and we request that our members exercise caution and good judgment when providing or receiving services or meeting with others in connection with such services.
Because we do not supervise or control any of the services provided or received by members or any of the locations at which services may be provided, or any meetings or interactions among or between members and other persons, and because we have very limited control, if any, over the information that members upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service, you agree that you bear all risk and full responsibility for, and you agree to release us and all other Covered Parties from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, now and in the future, arising out of or in any way connected with, your use of the Service, your provision or receipt of any services in connection with the Service or any meetings or interactions among or between members and other persons in connection with the Service. You further waive any and all rights and benefits otherwise conferred by any statutory or non-statutory law of any jurisdiction that would purport to limit the scope of a release or waiver.
