Thanks for your interest in Listen4Good (L4G).

You indicate your agreement to these Terms by clicking on a button indicating your acceptance of them, or by accessing or using the Services.

In these Terms, “you” or “Client” refers to the entity or individual entering into these Terms with L4G, and “Listen4Good” or “L4G” refers to Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, which is the fiscal sponsor of the Fund for Shared Insight, the funder collaborative that has incubated  the capacity-building initiative Listen4Good.

Subject to L4G approving your registration for a L4G program, L4G will provide to you, in accordance with these Terms, the services associated with the L4G program that you have joined (“Services”). The Services provided with each L4G program are described in the Registration Form, which includes any additional, separate documentation incorporated by reference in that Registration Form.

1.2. Changes to Services. Where L4G provides certain of its Services under the software-as-a-service model, L4G continually seeks to improve and update those Services. You agree that L4G may modify and improve functionality from such Services at any time without prior notice.

1.3. Prior Services. If you started a subscription to L4G services prior to November 23, 2020, these Terms do not apply to that subscription, and the Terms of Service located at http://app.listen4good.org/terms-of-service-2019/ (or any other services agreement you may have separately entered into with L4G prior to November 23, 2020) will continue to apply instead of these Terms.
