Summary of this agreement: 

Learning and Practicing Natural Family Planning 

By registering for an account with SymptoPro Fertility Education (SymptoPro), you agree to be a participant(s) in the SymptoPro client instruction program. You understand that the practice of NFP is completely voluntary. If attendance in the class series is a requirement for your marriage preparation program, there will be some requirements that will be stipulated by your diocese, including attendance and participation in the courses, completion of course work, tests as well as fertility charting in order to obtain a certificate of completion. You agree that the nature and purpose of the program and the effectiveness of the method have been fully explained to you. You acknowledge that no assurance has been made as to the results that may be obtained. It is also understood that no method of Natural Family Planning is 100% effective. You are aware of the importance of completing the course, including the learning activities, reading and charting homework, and following the recommendations of the instructor. You accept full responsibility for learning and application of the method and for contacting our instructor or SymptoPro as needed.  

You acknowledge that SymptoPro may share your contact information, wedding date, and any other information found on this registration form to verify registration. We may also share your progress level and participation in the SymptoPro Fertility Education course if it is a requirement for a marriage preparation program.  No information shared by SymptoPro for this purpose will contain medical information.
