By using the Site, you are agreeing to our general Terms and Conditions of Use as well as our Privacy Policy.  You also are agreeing to some additional terms specific to the Site: 

  • You understand that, before a hunch is posted on the Site, the Foundation (and/or its designee) will review your submission. The Foundation reserves the right not to post any hunch, or to remove a hunch that was posted, for any reason.  By way of example, the Foundation will not post hunches that are self-promotional in nature or that request Foundation funding.

  • You understand that, if you submit a hunch and it is posted on the Site, your hunch will be public and can be shared (including the automatic attribution of your Twitter handle, if provided) and used freely by anyone visiting the Site, including the Foundation. You cannot (and will not) claim ownership of a hunch, so if you don’t want it to be public or don’t want others to use it, don’t submit it.

  • You won’t submit anything to the Site that infringes the intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity. By submitting a hunch to the Site, you are representing to the Foundation that it does not infringe any other person’s or entity’s rights.

  • You won’t submit anything on the Site that expresses views on any candidate for public office or political party or pending or proposed legislation– whether at the federal, state, or local level. 

  • You won’t submit anything on the Site that, explicitly or implicitly, provides medical advice.

  • You won’t submit anything on the Site that is derogatory, hateful, obscene, or otherwise inappropriate, and you understand that the decision of whether something you submit is derogatory, hateful, obscene, or otherwise inappropriate is one we will make in our sole discretion.

  • You won’t include links to other websites in your submission.

  • You understand that you must submit a valid email address to use the Site and that the email address must be your email address. By submitting your email address, you are agreeing that we may reach out to you to discuss your hunch  or tell you about other work we (or our partners) are  involved with that we think might be of interest to you.   

  • You affirm that you are either 18 years of age or older, or if you are younger than 18, that you have the permission of a parent or legal guardian to accept the terms of this User Agreement. 

  • You understand that we can and may change the terms of this User Agreement and/or modify the features of the Site at any time.  Any changes to the terms of the User Agreement will be posted on the Site.  By accessing the Site after modifications to this User Agreement have been posted, you agree you are bound by all the modified terms.
