Terms of Use

We have made an effort to design our Web site to be inspirational, useful, informative, helpful, honest and fun. Hopefully we’ve accomplished that — and would ask that you let us know if you would like to see improvements or changes that would make it even easier for you to find the information you need and want.
 
All we ask is that you agree to abide by the following Terms and Conditions. Take a few minutes to look them over because by using our site you automatically agree to them. Naturally, if you don’t agree, please do not use the site. We reserve the right to make any modifications that we deem necessary at any time. Please continue to check these terms to see what those changes may be! Your continued use of the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles (“SOMSCLA”) Web site (somspiritualcenterla.org) means that you accept those changes.

Restrictions on Use of Our Online Materials

All Online Materials on the SOMSCLA website, including, without limitation, text, software, names, logos, trademarks, service marks, trade names, images, photos, illustrations, articles, audio clips, video clips, and music are copyrighted intellectual property.

You may not copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit or distribute Online Materials in any way or for any purpose unless you get our written permission first. Neither may you add, delete, distort or misrepresent the SOMSCLA site. Any attempts to modify any Online Material, or to defeat or circumvent our security features, is prohibited.

Submitting Your Online Material to Us

All remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics, testimonials, demonstrations, comments, photographs, articles or other content or information that you send to SOMSCLA through our site, by email or otherwise (other than information we promise to protect under our Privacy Policy) becomes and remains our property, even if this agreement is later terminated and we reserve the right to edit, modify, use or not use all or any portion of any such submissions.

That means that we don’t have to treat any such submission as confidential. You can’t sue us for using ideas you submit. If we use them, or anything like them, we don’t have to pay you or anyone else for them.

We will have the exclusive ownership of all present and future rights to submissions of any kind. We can use them for any purpose we deem appropriate to our SOMSCLA mission, without compensating you or anyone else for them.

You acknowledge that you are responsible for any submission you make. This means that you (and not we) have full responsibility for the message, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright.

If you submit anything to us or otherwise contact us, through our site, by email or otherwise, we will retain your email address, and we may use it to send you information, Faith Lifts, newsletters or requests for information, or for any other reasonable purpose that does not violate our Privacy Policy, unless you notify us at the time you contact us that you do not wish to receive further information from us via email. If at any time you decide that you do not want us to contact you via email you may notify us and opt out of receiving emails by emailing us at office@somspiritualcenterla.org (please put REMOVE FROM EMAIL LIST in the subject line). Even though you opt out of receiving information from us via email, you still agree that we may continue to contact you via email in connection with (1) any listing, article, link, picture or other content that you have submitted to our site, or (2) any content on our site that is about you or written by you, or (3) any picture of you on our site, or (4) any class you may be taking with us, or (5) any work (including, as a volunteer) or service you may be doing, will do or have done for SOMSCLA. Please note that we use a bulk email service provider (currently it is Constant Contact) to send bulk emails. If you opt out of receiving emails through our bulk email service provider, we will not send you bulk emails through a bulk email service provider; however, we may still contact you via email unless you email us at office@somspiritualcenterl.org, as provided in this paragraph.

Limitation of Liability

SOMSCLA WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR INJURY, WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR UNFORESEEABLE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, REASONABLE ATTORNEY’S FEES, THAT ACCOMPANY OR RESULT FROM, OR ARISE OUT OF YOUR USE OF ANY OF ITS SITE. THESE INCLUDE (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO) DAMAGES OR INJURY CAUSED BY, OR ARISING OUT OF ANY:

* USE OF (OR INABILITY TO USE) THE SITE
* USE OF (OR INABILITY TO USE) ANY SITE TO WHICH YOU HYPERLINK FROM OUR SITE
* FAILURE OF OUR SITE TO PERFORM IN THE MANNER YOU EXPECTED OR DESIRED
* ERROR ON OUR SITE
* ADVICE, SUGGESTIONS, AFFIRMATIONS, ADMONITIONS, TREATMENTS OR RECOMMENDATIONS GIVEN ON THIS SITE
* OMISSION ON OUR SITE
* INTERRUPTION OF AVAILABILITY OF OUR SITE

EXCEPTION: CERTAIN STATE LAWS MAY NOT ALLOW US TO LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR THESE “INCIDENTAL” OR “CONSEQUENTIAL” DAMAGES. IF YOU LIVE IN ONE OF THOSE STATES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION OBVIOUSLY WOULD NOT APPLY WHICH WOULD MEAN THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE THE RIGHT TO RECOVER THESE TYPES OF DAMAGES.

HOWEVER, IN ANY EVENT, OUR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL LOSSES, DAMAGES, INJURIES, AND CLAIMS OF ANY AND EVERY KIND (WHETHER THE DAMAGES ARE CLAIMED UNDER THE TERMS OF A CONTRACT, OR CLAIMED TO BE CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER WRONGFUL CONDUCT, OR THEY’RE CLAIMED UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY) WILL NOT BE GREATER THAN THE AMOUNT YOU PAID, IF ANYTHING, TO ACCESS OUR SITE.
