FTK Nation Terms of Service

The following are the Terms of Service for the Four Diamonds FTK Nation, Blog and Online Community (collectively the "FTK Nation").  Use of the FTK Nation indicates you accept these terms. If you do not accept these terms, please do not use FTK Nation.  


The FTK Nation is designed to serve as a resource for Four Diamonds Volunteers and staff members.  FTK Nation helps us and other members answer questions, share ideas, connect with one another, and benefit from the collective experiences of the community.   The FTK Nation Blog is designed to be available to Four Diamonds volunteers. 
Our mission to conquer childhood cancer is nothing without you, and we thank you for your participation.


Just get started.  You can introduce yourself, ask a question, submit an idea, click to recognize submissions, or even help answer questions that other members have.  The more you share, the better it is for everyone.  If you're reading this and don't have a profile photo, add one now.  Attaching a name to a face helps build community for everyone.


We're almost embarrassed to include this because our community members have been so great thus far.  But, if you're wondering some simple things can help:

1.     Be positive.  Everyone loves a positive personality.
2.     Be helpful.  Everyone is here looking to learn and get better. 
3.     Share.  You have great experiences that can help others.  Share them.
4.     Be smart.  Don't share anything that you wouldn't want up on the Web.  That also goes for copyrighted materials.


Thanks for being a part of FTK Nation.  If you have any feedback, please let us know by sending us an email at fourdiamondsinfo@hmc.psu.edu.
