Terms of Service and User Agreement
This Agreement sets out the terms and conditions relating to the online content provided free of charge and content subject to payment that Yvon Prehn, Effective Church Communications (ECC), and content by Bible805 and the Bibleverse will provide to you. It is a bunch of legal content we were advised to use. Though I felt to include it is to do things "decently and in order," you don't have to read every part of it.
I try to do my best, but I will most likely make mistakes and I'm certain to make lots of typos and various small errors. Let's all be kind and do good to each other. If you have a problem, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
