Please enjoy and share – but do not abuse…
We’re grateful that you’re taking the time to read through our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. While many of our resources are offered free of charge, they are not created for free. As you can imagine, a great deal of time and energy is spent creating the resources we offer. Abiding by our terms of use will help ensure that we are able to continue offering our resources as we do. 

Please read the following Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions of Use before making any assumptions. FAILURE TO READ OUR PRIVACY AND TERMS OF USE AND/OR COPYRIGHT POLICY AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE DOES NOT IN ANY WAY ABSOLVE YOU OR YOUR GROUP OR ORGANIZATION FROM AGREEING AND COMPLYING WITH THEM, AND DOES NOT IN ANY WAY PROVIDE IMMUNITY OR PARDON FROM U.S. AND/OR INTERNATIONAL LAW. It is in your best interests to comply with copyright law before committing a violation. AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL LAWS GOVERNING TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS, AND ABIDE BY OUR COPYRIGHT GUIDELINES, PRIVACY POLICIES AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY OUR ENTITIES AND ALL THE INFORMATION, RESOURCES AND SERVICES AS INTENDED, WITH PEACE OF MIND AND SATISFACTION.

Your Acceptance
By using Godfactor.com and the Godfactor App, you are agreeing to our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions of Use and our Copyright Terms and Conditions of Use (hereafter referred to collectively as “Policies”). You also agree to abide by all U.S. and international laws regarding copyrights and trademarks. We may modify these Policies, and any and all agreements they create, at any time, simply by updating this posting, with or without notice to you. You should check these Policies periodically for changes. These Policies are effective until terminated by either party. You may terminate this agreement at any time, by destroying all materials obtained from our Web Entities (whether electronic, paper or otherwise), along with all related documentation and all copies and installations. In addition, by providing material on our Web entities, we do not in any way promise that any of the content, resources, services, or the Web entities through which such is presented, will remain available to you. We are also entitled to terminate all or any part of any of our Web entities without notice to you.

If you do not agree to our Policies at any time, please do not use our Web entities, App, or any of the services, information, materials and resources offered on them. Your continued use of our Entities (and any of the services, materials, resources and information presented by them) following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept those changes. By using any of our Web entities after we post any changes to these Policies, you agree to accept those changes, whether or not you have reviewed them.

Scope of Policies
These Policies apply to your use of all of the entities, services, resources, information and materials offered by Michael Anthony and Janet Paolicelli and/or offered or operated by Godfactor® and all subsidiaries and affiliates, including Altared Media®, (collectively “we,” “us,” or “our”), Godfactor.com and the Godfactor App and the Godfactor App, and any other subsidiary or affiliates (collectively, “Entities”), unless we state otherwise. These Policies do not apply to your use of entities that are not affiliated with us, or to entities linked or recommended by us. 

Jurisdiction and Consent to Transfer
Our Entities are operated in the United States of America. We do not represent that materials, resources, information and services on our Entities are appropriate or available for use in other locations outside the United States. If you view our Entities from locations outside of the United States, you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local, national or international laws. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using our Entities, participating in any of our services, and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.

Godfactor® was organized and incorporated in the United States of America. These Policies, and any and all agreements they create, shall be governed by and interpreted according to the laws of the United States. You agree that any action at law or in equity that arises out of or relates to these Policies will be subject to binding arbitration in accordance with the laws of the United States, and will be arbitrated in the United States. If any of these Policies and/or agreements they create are found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be considered removable from the remaining Policies, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions and/or agreements they create.

Security
Our Entities may use SSL encryption to protect sensitive data transmission from your computer to us. You can see when the SSL encryption is active when the “padlock” icon is at the bottom of your browser’s window or when a blue line appears around the window. Sometimes, we use password protection to protect your privacy and security.

Privacy and Collection of Information
We respect your privacy! We will always endeavor to take steps to assure that any information you provide to us will remain secure. We want you to feel safe in your online experience while visiting our Entities. We will not sell, lease or rent your confidential information. We will, however, provide such information if it is necessary for legal reasons or if there is either an attempted or successful breach of the security of our Entities, or if there is a physical or property threat to you or others.

We may request personal identification information from you in connection with your use of our Entities and anything we offer on them. In all such cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user (such as, for example, your full name, street address, telephone number, credit card number or e-mail address) to any third party without having received your permission. We may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you utilize on our Entities and about the links you may select from within our Entities to other areas of the Internet. By doing so, we are able to learn which areas of our Entities are preferred by our visitors and which areas may need improvement.

In order to help you fully enjoy our Entities, we may use cookie technology. A “cookie” is a piece of data sent from a Web site to your browser, and is stored in your computer system. This technology may be used for the purpose of remembering your preferences, customizing the content you see or to authenticate your access to your personal information. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. Some parts of our Entities may not function properly if you refuse some cookies. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer or terminal when you are logged on to the Internet. Our servers may log your IP address when you surf pages from our Entities. We may also contact you to confirm your information or registration and/or to conduct polls and/or interviews pertaining to the use and/or information and services on our Entities.  We may send you e-mails or regular mailings to tell you about something appearing on our Entities, or to introduce a product or service that we think might be of interest to the users of our Entities. For us to obtain your permission to send you this information, we will give you an opportunity to “opt-out” at the time our request for your personal information is made. Please note that if you“opt-out,” you may not be eligible for certain benefits and/or features for which we require a name, e-mail address, telephone number or other personal identification information.

Privacy of Children
Young people may not understand our Policies, or be able to make wise choices made possible by experience and maturity. Because of this, we believe young people need special privacy protection and safeguards when using the Internet. Parents should always assist their children in Web surfing and Internet use, and teach them about protecting their personal information while online. Therefore, children under the age of 13 are prohibited from registering for all interactive portions of our Entities. Further, we will not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.

We will not be responsible or liable in any way for information submitted to us (and/or any and all consequences resulting from such submissions) by an individual under the age of 18, regardless of their national heritage or citizenship. We may decide to require users under the age of 18 to obtain prior parental or guardian consent before viewing certain content, and we may limit access to certain content to users above an age specified by us. By using our Entities, you agree to abide by any such restrictions, and agree to not help anyone circumvent these restrictions. Any such circumvention may be a criminal offense, punishable by law.

Choice/Opt-Out
If at any time you would like to opt-out of a feature or stop receiving information from us, please notify us in writing at the address below. However, please be aware that although we will always make every reasonable effort to comply with your written request, it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers.

Medical, Health, Psychological, Financial, Legal, Ministry Information
The information contained in or made available through our Entities (including but not limited to information contained on any forum) is no replacement or substitution for the services of trained professionals in any field, including, but not limited to, financial, medical, psychological, legal, pastoral and church matters. Never disregard advice or delay to seek it from such professionals because of something that appears and/or is offered on our Entities. By using our Entities, you agree to waive your right to sue us for using any of the information and/or services we provide, and any consequences resulting thereof. You should regularly consult a doctor in all matters relating to physical or mental health, particularly concerning any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention. We and our licensors or suppliers make no representations or warranties concerning any treatment, action, or application of medication or preparation by any person following the information offered or provided within or through our Entities. Neither we nor our partners, or any of their subsidiaries or affiliates, will be liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, special, exemplary or other damages that may result, including but not limited to economic loss, injury, illness or death.

Information provided is general in nature and may be helpful to some people but not others, depending upon their personal medical and/or psychological needs. This is why you should always consult with your personal physician or mental health care professional before changing or undertaking a new diet, exercise program or following advice designed for general audiences only. Your physician and/or mental health care specialist is typically best able to evaluate whether or not a specific health suggestion or potential course of treatment is best for you. Consultation with your physician is especially important if you are under eighteen (18), pregnant, nursing a baby, or have health problems. You should always consult a legal or financial professional before acting on any legal or financial matters.

Nothing offered on our Entities is intended to be a substitute for pastoral counseling or church participation and attendance. Hebrews 10:25 emphasizes the importance of genuine, face-to-face Christian fellowship, for which there is no substitute.

Limitation of Liability
We will neither be liable for any damages or injury that accompany or result from your use of any of our Entities nor for services, information, resources and/or materials obtained by visiting our Entities. By using our Entities, you agree to waive your right to sue us for using any services, information, resources and/or materials we provide, and any consequences resulting thereof.

Everything provided on our Entities is presented “as is”, without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

Neither we nor any of our respective licensors or suppliers or their subsidiaries and/or affiliates warrant that any functions contained in our Entities will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Entities or the server that makes the Entities available are free of viruses or other harmful components.

Neither we nor any of our respective licensors or suppliers and all subsidiaries and/or affiliates warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the information, services, products or materials in our Entities in terms of their correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. You alone (and not we or any of our respective licensors or suppliers or their subsidiaries and/or affiliates) assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction to your system.

These include (but are not limited to) damages or injury caused by any:

  • Computer virus or line failure
  • Use of (or inability to use) the entities

  • Failure of our entities to perform in the manner you expected or desired
  • Error, omission or defect on our entities
  • Interruption of availability of our entities
  • Delay in operation or transmission of our entities

  • Damages intended to compensate someone directly for a loss or injury
  • Damages reasonably expected to result from a loss or injury (known in legal terms as “consequential damages.”)
  • Other miscellaneous damages and expenses resulting directly from a loss or injury (known in legal terms as “incidental damages.”)

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 to access our Entities. We are not liable even if we’ve been negligent or if our authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages or both.

SECTION 2 OF 2 – SCENARIOS OF ILLEGAL AND FORBIDDEN USE

Following are some scenarios presented to help you avoid copyright violations. These scenarios are examples only, and are not exhaustive or all-inclusive. There are other scenarios of illegal and improper use, and you are solely responsible to understand and abide by U.S. and international copyright law so that you are not in violation and subject to prosecution and the heavy fines that result. We are providing these scenarios as a courtesy, to help you conduct yourself with integrity. By providing these scenarios, we are in no way limiting your liability in copyright violations, nor are we forfeiting our rights under U.S. and international copyright law.

  1. Your Web Site and electronic publication. You may not reformat, alter or republish materials appearing and/or offered on our Entities for use on your personal or organization Web site or other electronic display. This is true even if you intend to credit us as the source, with all proper copyright notices displayed. Doing so would be a violation of the guidelines in Section 1:2, above (Proper Use) and is prohibited. If you want to provide a link to our Web Entities or Web pages, please write us for permission before doing so. In most cases, we are happy to provide permission to do so, but such permission must be granted by us in writing, before links can be created. If we do grant you permission to link to our Entities or Web pages, you agree that you will in no way imply or state that you are in any way our representative, associate, agent, distributor, affiliate, publisher or partner, or that your Web site(s) or Web pages are in any way affiliated with or endorsed by us. If we wish to pursue such an affiliation and/or endorsement, we will let such interest be known to you.
