Terms of Use

 

Welcome to Theologika. By using the Theologika service (the “Service”), you accept and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (the “Terms of Use”). Any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall also be subject to these Terms of Use. Nothing in the Terms of Use should be construed to confer any rights to third party beneficiaries.

1. Description of Service

This website contains collections of websites tagged and annotated by its users and developers. No claim is made as to its inclusiveness nor to its exhaustive nature. There are many more wonderful resources available on the web that have not yet been included in Theologika’s library. The library section is a “work in progress” and will continue to be built up by its trustees.

A Members Only section is included. Within in this portion of the site our members will have access to online classes and workshops, recordings of presentations and special offers from publishers and vendors of articles of interest to our members.

Theologika is in its “beta” release, meaning that it is not yet perfect. It has limits and is subject to errors and faults. It may be modified or terminated at any time by Theologika for any reason. These changes may be made without notice and may affect your access to information and information that you have submitted. We cannot guarantee that any entries you make will be preserved or that they will be compatible with new versions of the site. At a future time, we again expect to offer options for sharing discoveries with friends and for doing joint research. This is not currently an option.

2. Changes to Terms of Use

The Terms of Use of this service are subject to update by Theologika at any time with or without notice, and you can review the most current version of it online at any time.

3. Registration

When you register for Theologika, you must provide true, accurate and complete registration information. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to select a username and password and you will be responsible for all activities occurring under your username and for keeping your password secure.

4. Use of Materials

The content within the Service is protected by copyright and other laws in both the United States and elsewhere. The Service includes both content owned or controlled by Theologika as well as content owned or controlled by third parties and licensed to Theologika (collectively, the “Materials”).

Theologika authorizes you to view and download a single copy of the Materials solely for your personal, non-commercial use. You may not sell or modify the Materials or reproduce, display, publicly perform, distribute, or otherwise use the Materials in any way for any public or commercial purpose without the written permission of Theologika.

5. Content

Your Responsibilities. You understand that all tags, links, annotations and other content (collectively, “Content”), is the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated.

You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.

User’s Rights and Responsibilities. Each user decides whether their collections are restricted to certain members or accessible to the public generally, and each user may change the access to his collections at any time. A user shall be responsible for the maintenance and monitoring of the Content of his collections, including deleting any Content at any time and in his sole discretion.

Theologika’s Right to Remove Content. You acknowledge that Theologika does not pre-screen, control, edit or endorse Content made available through the Service and has no obligation to monitor the Content Posted via the Service.

Requests for Content Removal.

However, if you believe that inappropriate Content has been Posted on the Service, you may notify us. Please be aware, however, that due to our limited resources, we may not be able to review your request promptly and even if we do, we may choose not to remove the material.

Theologika’s Right to Revoke User Privileges.
