Your account may include access to several of the following
community elements: (1) a one-way email system, (2) a two-way email system,
(3) a password protected photo gallery, (4) a password protected news section,
(5) photo purchasing options, (6) care package purchase options, (7) password
protected bulletin boards, (8) camp forms and or mailings and more. Each of these various products has its own
derivative set of disclaimers and limitations of liability as follows:
One Way eMail
Your account may be enabled for one way email service. All email sent to your Camper through the
eCamp system (either via web form or by the eCamp assigned email address) is
grouped, sorted, and forwarded to camp on a daily basis by ecamp. Camp prints
and distributes email on behalf of eCamp. eCamp
makes no guarantee that email will be delivered in a timely manner or that
email will be delivered at all. Under no circumstances shall eCamp be held
responsible for email that is missing or email that has not been delivered to
its intended recipient. Unused email credits are non-refundable and
Two Way eMail
Your account may be enabled for two way email service. All email is grouped and delivered on a
daily basis based on a schedule established with your camp. Likewise, email composed at camp is grouped
and sent over the internet on a daily basis.
This system works differently from what you may be accustomed to on
your home or office computer where email is sent and received
immediately. The engineered delay in
email distribution is intended to prevent Campers from abusing email privileges
at camp and is also more realistic in terms of technology usage within the
context of the camp environment.
Campers have access to computer terminals at camp where they may
review and reply to email sent to them or formulate
new email messages. Campers are not
required to access their email on any specific schedule. Under no circumstances shall eCamp be held
responsible for logistics of email operations at camp, frequency of
visitation to the email lab or timeliness of response (or response at all) to
email messages sent to your Camper.
eCamp may host photos and or videos provided by
your camp. Camp is wholly responsible
for uploading this content to the eCamp managed website. eCamp does not
control the frequency of updates nor the quantity of photos or videos
does not guarantee the quality, quantity or frequency of uploads conducted by
your camp. Under no circumstances
shall eCamp be held responsible for the content (or lack thereof) of the
eCamp may host news articles, polls, food menus
and other text based content provided by your camp. Camp is wholly responsible for uploading
this content to the eCamp managed website.
eCamp does not control the frequency of
updates nor the quantity of uploaded content.
eCamp does not guarantee the quality,
quantity or frequency of uploads conducted by your camp. Under no circumstances shall eCamp be held
responsible for the content (or lack thereof) of the Newsletter.
Options and Care Packages
One or more of these service may be
enabled at your camp. If the service
is enabled, it has been endorsed by camp and you are welcome to
works with third party vendors to fulfill both of these services. Please refer to the ‘linked sites’ section
of the Terms of Service for more information.
Your account may be enabled for bulletin board service. The camp is acting as administrator of the
bulleting board and is responsible for any content and or management of
content associated with bulleting boards.
You and your child may have access to bulletin boards where you will
be able to share information with other members of the camp community. We encourage you not to share personally
identifiable information for your own safety and security online.
Forms, Mailings and
Your account may have access to additional information
including forms, mailings and other information. Camp is responsible for managing this
content and making it available for your use.
eCamp acts as an intermediary in hosting this
additional information and is not responsible for its content nor does ecamp
warrant that any of this information is accurate.
eCamp services are available to camp families
on a registration basis. Depending on
the relationship that has been structured with your camp, it may be free to
register or you may be required to purchase a package during the registration
process. If packages are offered, they
will consist of email credits, photo credit or both. These packages and the pricing model have
been established in concert with your camp and are geared to present a
package of appropriate proportions for the duration of the
your Camper’s stay at camp. Any
fees paid are to eCamp and are not being collected by your camp. In addition to fees that may apply for
registration packages, there may be additional opportunities for commerce on
the site including photo reprint services, photo gift items, and camp car
packages. These services are made
available at the discretion of your camp.
Again, eCamp bills for these services, not your camp. eCamp reserves the
right to include additional fees above and beyond packages agreed upon or
made available through your camp to accommodate for setup fees, service
charges, shipping fees and or handling fees.
These fees are considered ‘pass through’ fees and may be implemented
at the sole discretion of eCamp. In
the event these fees affect your account, you will be notified and charged
eCamp does not offer refunds for services
rendered. After you have completed the
registration process, service has been rendered in the form of access to the
online community and, in some cases, the creation of a private internet email
address for your Camper. Refunds are
not considered for any reason including but not limited to: non-use of the
service, unused credits, any inability for you or your computer to access
eCamp web based services, your Camper’s departure or early departure from
camp and more.
