The mission of Firefly Sisterhood (“FFS”) is to facilitate and foster one-on-one connections that are local and personal between women newly diagnosed with breast cancer and those already on the journey. We offer the Firefly Sisterhood One to One Program (“Program”) to help women who are newly diagnosed connect with volunteers who are breast cancer survivors. This Agreement (which we refer to as “the Terms”) applies to your participation in the Program. In the Terms, we sometimes use “we”, “us” and “our” to refer to Firefly Sisterhood; “newly diagnosed Sister” or “NDS” to refer to each of the newly diagnosed participants in the Program; and “Guide” to refer to each breast cancer survivor who serves as a volunteer guide in the Program. We also refer to the newly diagnosed Sister and Guide who are paired in the Program as “partners”, “you” and “your”; and women who use our services as “Firefly Sisters”. The term “personal information” means (1) information that can be used to determine, distinguish or trace an individual‘s identity, such as name, e-mail address, address, phone number, social security number, age, and (2) any other information that is linked or linkable to an individual, such as medical and employment information.
