Parental Permission

The Sites are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. We strongly recommend that parents participate in their children’s exploration of the internet and any online services and use their browser’s parental controls to limit the areas of the internet to which their children have access. We may, at our discretion, require users under 18 to obtain the consent of a parent or guardian to view certain content, and we may limit access to certain content to users above a specified age. You agree to abide by any such restrictions, and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.

Miscellaneous
These terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom, without regard to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity that arises out of or relates to these terms will be subject to mediation in the United Kingdom. If any of these terms of use are found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be considered severable from the remaining terms of use, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. These terms may be modified only by our posting of changes to these terms of use on our site.

The aim of this site is to encourage and energise your relationship with Jesus. It's a place to come and share encouragement, lessons and inspiration.

Here are a few simple ground rules to keep our conversation going. By posting on this site, after articles or in the Community area, you agree to the following:

1. You'll need to register to the site before making a comment.

2. By posting you’re also telling us that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content you have posted and that the public posting and use of such content by us will not infringe the rights of any third party. Additionally, you warrant that any “moral rights” in posted materials have been waived. You are not entitled to any compensation for any materials you may post on the Sites.

3. You may post follow-up questions and comments. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others may well be thinking similarly. Therefore, we'd rather receive your comments after articles or in the Community zone. It's a better use of time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.

4. You may disagree with us. We welcome debate. However, we ask that if you disagree with us - or anyone else, for that matter - do so in a way that is respectful.

5. We are not responsible for material appearing after articles or in the Community, except for material signed by one of our identified representatives. We reserve the right to delete your comments on the site. We don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. Specifically, we will delete your comments if you post something that is, in our sole opinion, (a) sharply critical; (b) off-topic; (c) libellous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) 'spam,' i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.

6. You retain ownership of your comments. We do not own them and we expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on the site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve us from any and all liability that may result from those postings.

7. You grant us a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant us the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.

In short, our goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. We believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this.

We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.

Further, the information you enter when making a purchase or an online donation will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose or carrying out the transactions.
