Your use of DarfurDreamTeam.org is subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Terms of Use agreement ("Terms of Use"), which supplement any additional guidelines or other terms posted by the Parties in relation to specific site-related services or content. Although you can access and read portions of DarfurDreamTeam.org just by visiting the site, you must sign up to use certain DarfurDreamTeam.org features--such as receiving newsletters.

Please note that we reserve the right to update or modify the Terms of Use without advance notice by posting a revised Terms of Use to this website.

Purpose of DarfurDreamTeam.org

The Parties prohibit users from supporting attempts to influence the outcome of any election for public office, as many of them are tax-exempt organizations organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Accordingly, with DarfurDreamTeam.org, we seek to provide a forum to discuss policy -- not to advance the interests of any particular political party or candidate for office.
