Terms of Use

SCORE Online Counseling

I understand that SCORE services, including but not limited to online counseling and workshops, are provided as services only to citizens of the United States and its territories.

I understand that when I submit a request to participate in online counseling, and when I participate in online counseling, I am signifying that I agree to the terms and conditions of SCORE counseling outlined as follows. I request business management counseling from the Small Business Administration (SBA). I agree to cooperate should I be selected to participate in surveys designed to evaluate SBA assistance services. I authorize SBA to furnish relevant information to the assigned management counselor(s) although I expect that information to be held in strictest confidence by him/her. I further understand that any counselor has agreed not to: (1) recommend goods or services from sources in which he/she has an interest and (2) accept fees or commissions developing from this counseling relationship. In consideration of SBA's furnishing management or technical assistance, I waive all claims against SBA personnel, SCORE, SBDC and its host organizations, and other SBA resource counselors arising from this assistance.

I understand that SCORE counselors are not providing advice pursuant to the authority of professional certifications or licenses that they may hold and I will not treat information provided by SCORE counselors as such. I further understand that I am not entering into a relationship with SCORE counselors that entitles me to client privileges that may be associated with any professional certifications or licenses that SCORE counselors may hold.
