Habitat Network Terms of Use

Please read this carefully, as it explains, among other things, the nature of "beta" testing and what that might mean for you.

First, about our software:

Habitat Network is a software product, provided to its users via the Internet in much the same way that other Internet-based products are delivered (such as Yahoo! Mail or eBay). You don’t need to install any software to use Habitat Network; your existing Internet browser is all that is required (although we recommend using updated versions of your browser for the best experience).
It’s important for us to hear from you as you use Habitat Network. We want to know what you like, don’t like, and have questions about. We’d like to know how we can make Habitat Network as useful as possible for you! Use the “Help” page at the top right of every page for contact information. Feel free to make suggestions, share ideas, report problems, or ask a question. We devote significant time to responding to participant feedback!

About privacy:

In Habitat Network any maps you map are visible to other Habitat Network users. Please do not use Habitat Network if you are uncomfortable sharing your map with other users.

In no event will Habitat Network or its owners, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and The Nature Conservancy, be liable for any damages related to the use of Habitat Network, including but not limited to any lost profits, lost savings, lost data, or any incidental or consequential damages, even if we’ve been advised of the possibility of such damages, or for any claim by you based on a third party claim.
At this time, Habitat Network is a work-in-progress. We reserve the right to make modifications to the product at our discretion, including changing or removing features or functionality. We further reserve the right to discontinue offering access to Habitat Network altogether.

Finally: thanks for using Habitat Network!
