Terms & Conditions

(Apologies in advance for all the legalese but the lawyers advised such so in the spirit of Proverbs 12:15…)

  1. Parties to this Agreement.  This agreement is by and between user and Bible Memory / BibleMemory.org (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Organization”).
  2. Donations.  Organization is fully supported by the ongoing donations from like-minded Bible-loving believers and those who agree with and want to be A PART OF this ministry in this way and thus share in all of the spiritual fruit which the Lord produces therefrom.  If Organization applies for AND IS GRANTED tax-exempt status (which is retroactive to day one if application occurs not more than 27 months after formation as fully intended), all donations would be tax-deductible for federal tax purposes, OTHERWISE NOT.  Future updates will be posted here as events warrant but the instant it becomes clear that people support this as expected, said application will be submitted for approval.  Organization’s primary focus will be to use donations to keep this project and future ministry(ies) going and to demonstrate maximum fiscal responsibility.
  3. Security of User’s/Donors’ Payment Information.  As of this writing and for the unforeseeable future, donations will be processed via PayPal, perhaps the most trusted and secure payment processor; the foregoing notwithstanding, Organization has no control and therefore no responsibility whatsoever and shall not ever in any way be liable for anything relating to PayPal; Organization (hereinafter incorporating by reference any of its assignees, members, officers, directors, employees or anyone else in direct or indirect relation to this agreement and/or service) will not see, much less know or possess, ANY credit card or other payment information, only the Name and Email Address and, if applicable, phone number, which donor provides to PayPal.  For any future donations made by check, Automated Clearing House (ACH), or equivalent, Organization shall in no way ever be liable for but will seek to protect any provided financial information.
  4. Organization’s Full and Permanent Right to Modify, Change, or Discontinue Altogether.  While Organization is absolutely certain that the Lord desires and intends to use it for years and decades to come – indeed, until His return – Organization shall proceed in all matters as the Lord may lead at any time, without exception, notice, or reservation.
  5. Fitness of Service.  User fully understands and agrees that Organization neither manufactures nor maintains its own equipment and, like most organizations, is fully dependent on its technology and equipment suppliers regarding the fitness of same.  While Organization neither foresees nor expects any such issues to occur, such is entirely possible, and user fully agrees to defend, hold harmless, and indemnify Organization if said equipment or service is interrupted or fails to function properly at any time.
  6. Full and Advance Waiver of Ability to Take Legal or Other Action for Any Reason.  User hereby knowingly, willingly, and voluntarily waives any real or potential right to sue or bring any action against Organization or any affiliated entities or any of its assignees, members, officers, directors, employees or anyone else in direct or indirect relation to this agreement and/or undertaking, and agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Organization and any of its assignees, members, officers, directors, employees or anyone else in direct or indirect relation to this agreement and/or undertaking, including full payment of any legal or other fees incurred by Organization at any time.  User further understands, asserts, affirms, and agrees that if any dispute or dissatisfaction arises at any time, user’s sole recourse is and will ever be solely to cease using the website or making donations.  If user does not fully agree with this full and advance waiver, user shall NOT proceed or continue to use Organization’s website going forward.
  7. Release of Liability.  User (hereafter referred to as “Releaser”) desires, seeks, and agrees to participate in this undertaking (referred to herein as the “Activity”), and further agrees to release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue, and agrees to hold Organization, its trustees, officers, servants, agents, volunteers, employees, and assignees (hereafter referred to as the “Releasees”) from and against any and all liabilities, demands, claims, or injuries, including death, that Releaser may sustain during or in conjunction with the Activity.  Releaser agrees that Releaser’s safety and protection is Releaser’s own responsibility.  Releaser agrees to make sure to know how to safely participate in the Activity, and Releaser agrees to observe any rules and practices that may be employed to minimize the risk of injury, and to refrain from any and all actions that might pose a hazard to Releaser or others.  Releaser and anyone claiming on behalf of Releaser releases and forever discharges Releasee and its affiliates, successors and assigns, officers, employees, representatives, partners, agents, and anyone claiming through them (collectively, the “Released Parties”), in their individual and/or organizational or corporate capacities from any and all claims, liabilities, obligations, promises, agreements, disputes, demands, damages, causes of action of any nature and kind, known or unknown, which Releaser has or ever had or may in the future have against Releasee or any of the Released Parties.  In exchange for the release of claims, Releasee will provide Releaser the opportunity to subscribe to Releaser’s service offering(s), so long as Releaser remains in good standing in Releasee’s sole discretion.  This Release shall not be in any way construed as an admission by the Releasee that it has acted wrongfully with respect to Releaser or any other person or entity, that it admits liability or responsibility at any time for any purpose, or that Releaser has any rights whatsoever against the Releasee or the Released Parties.  This Release shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective heirs, administrators, personal representatives, executors, successors, and assigns.  Releaser has the authority to release the Claims and has not assigned or transferred any Claims to any other party and shall not do so.  The provisions of this Release are severable.  Section 6 herein above notwithstanding, If any term of this Release is to any extent illegal, otherwise invalid, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability; all other terms hereof shall remain in full force and effect; and, to the extent permitted and possible, the invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed replaced by a term that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of such invalid or unenforceable term.  This Release constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter of this Release.  This Release may not be altered, amended, or modified, except as agreed in writing by both parties.  Both parties represent that they fully understand their right to review all aspects of this Release with attorneys of their choice, that they have had the opportunity to consult with attorneys of their choice, that they have carefully read and fully understand all the provisions of this Release, and that they are freely, knowingly, and voluntarily entering into this Release.  IN NO EVENT WILL ORGANIZATION, ITS AFFILIATES OR THEIR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS OR DIRECTORS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE OR SERVICES, ANY SERVICES OR WEBSITES LINKED TO IT, ANY CONTENT ON THE SERVICE OR WEBSITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES OR ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE SERVICE OR WEBSITE OR SUCH OTHER WEBSITES, INCLUDING ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, DEATH, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.
  8. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution.  This Agreement is governed by and shall exclusively be construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America (USA).
  9. Exclusive Venue.  Section 6 herein above notwithstanding, in such instance that any matter related to this Agreement does go to court, exclusive venue shall be at the sole discretion of Organization, without exception, and the party which takes such action hereby agrees to pay any and all legal, travel, and any and other expenses incurred by Organization, or any individual affiliated or associated with such, as well as any amount awarded to user in any such matter.  If user does not fully agree with this full and advance waiver, user shall NOT use or continue to access this website or participate in this undertaking.
  10. Non-negotiability.  By accessing this website or donating or participating in any other way, you agree to all of these Terms and Conditions; these are absolutely non-negotiable so if you do not readily and heartily agree with any of them Organization and any and all individuals associated or affiliated with such, either directly or indirectly, respectfully request that you not participate or access the website.
  11. Always opinion, never advice.  Organization will undoubtedly be asked questions about what the Bible says and how to best apply it to one’s life.  User agrees, asserts, and affirms that any answers will always be Organization’s best opinion of what the Bible says but never advice of any kind or in any way, shape, or form, and hereby agrees and does indeed fully waive any claims or action of any kind whatsoever including but not limited to legal and fully understands that nature of any answers given by Organization or anyone affiliated with or employed by same and fully agrees to refrain from any and all actions that might pose a hazard to Releaser or others.  Releaser and anyone claiming on behalf of Releaser releases and forever discharges Releasee and its affiliates, successors and assigns, officers, employees, representatives, partners, agents, and anyone claiming through them (collectively, the “Released Parties”), in their individual and/or organizational or corporate capacities from any and all claims, liabilities, obligations, promises, agreements, disputes, demands, damages, causes of action of any nature and kind, known or unknown, which Releaser has or ever had or may in the future have against Releasee or any of the Released Parties.
  12. Privacy Policy.  We only use the minimal information user voluntarily provides to keep this undertaking and website functioning properly, and NEVER sell or disclose such to third parties.
  13. Severability.  If any term of this Agreement is to any extent illegal, otherwise invalid, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability; all other terms hereof shall remain in full force and effect; and, to the extent permitted and possible, the invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed replaced by a term that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of such invalid or unenforceable term.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter of this Agreement.  This Agreement may not be altered, amended, or modified, except as agreed in writing by both parties.  Both parties represent that they fully understand their right to review all aspects of this Agreement with attorneys of their choice, that they have had the opportunity to consult with attorneys of their choice, that they have carefully read and fully understand all the provisions of this Agreement, and that they are freely, knowingly, and voluntarily entering into this Agreement.
