FH has the right, but not the obligation, to regulate content (which includes but is not limited to postings, text, code, images, video, binary files, ads, accounts, account information, flags, emails, messages and any other User communications) ("content") posted to, stored on or transmitted via Faithhappenings by any User (or any other third party in any manner); to regulate conduct (including but not limited to any authorized or unauthorized access to or use of Faithhappenings) by any User (or any other third party in any manner); and to enforce the TOU, for any reason and in any manner or by any means that FH, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate (including but not limited to automated and manual screening, blocking, filtering, exclusion from index pages, exclusion from search results, requiring the use of an application programming interface (API), requiring the use of a bulk posting interface, authorization, verification, and the deletion and/or termination of content, accounts and/or all or any use or access). FH may, in its sole discretion and without notice, start, stop or modify any regulation or enforcement measures at any time. FH action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of the TOU by any User (or any other third party) does not waive FH's right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct or potential TOU violation. FH agrees to send you emails as you request in the sign-up page. Further, from time to time, at the reasonable discretion of FH, FH may also send emails to your account email address that advertise certain products, services or events that may be of interest to you, as stated in your preferences. If you feel you are receiving more than a reasonable amount of non-requested emails, you may adjust your preferences at any time or discontinue your membership. You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by FH or any of its directors, officers, stockholders, employees, consultants, agents or representatives (collectively, "FH Representatives") to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential TOU violation is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that neither FH nor any FH Representative shall be liable to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress, or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of the TOU. Although FH Representatives may moderate content, conduct and TOU compliance on Faithhappenings at FH's discretion, FH Representatives have no authority to make binding commitments, promises or representations to anyone that they or anyone else on behalf of FH will "take care" of any alleged problem or complaint, or that they or anyone else on behalf of FH will otherwise stop, cure or prevent any problem, content, conduct or purported TOU violation from occurring or recurring. Accordingly, you further agree that any representation (written or verbal) by any FH Representative (or by anyone else acting on behalf of FH or by anyone purportedly acting on behalf of FH) that FH (including but not limited to any FH Representative, anyone else acting on behalf of FH, or anyone purportedly acting on behalf of FH) would or would not prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content (including, without limitation, screen, block, moderate, review, remove, terminate, delete, edit or otherwise stop, cure or exclude any content), or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential or purported TOU violation is superseded by this provision and is nonbinding and unenforceable. Specifically, you agree that FH, FH Representatives and anyone else authorized to act on behalf of FH shall in no circumstance be liable as a result of any representation that FH, a FH Representative or anyone else on behalf of FH would or would not restrict or redress any content, conduct or potential or purported TOU violation. This paragraph may not be modified, waived or released except by a written agreement, dated and signed by FH's Chief Executive Officer and dated and signed by the individual or entity to whom the modification, waiver or release is granted. FH also has the right in its sole discretion to limit, modify, interrupt, suspend or discontinue all or any portions of Faithhappenings at any time without notice. FH and FH Representatives shall not be liable for any such limitations, modifications, interruptions, suspensions or discontinuance, or any purported losses, harm or damages arising from or related thereto.
3. CONTENT, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, AND CONDUCT
4. POSTING AND ACCOUNTS
This section 4 applies to all uses and Users of Faithhappenings, unless FH has specifically authorized an exception to a particular term for a particular User in a written agreement. FH has sole and absolute discretion to authorize or deny any exception or exceptions to the terms in this section 4. a. Postings Faithhappenings is intended and designed as a local and national service. A User may post content only to the specific geographic area offered on Faithhappenings for which that content is most relevant. The same or substantially similar content (for example, an ad for a particular event or service, a particular offer, a particular message or a particular comment) may not be posted to or communicated via more than one such geographic area unless it serves other areas. FH will have complete rights to determine if a posting fits more than one area. The same or substantially similar content may not be posted in more than one Faithhappenings category. A User may post content only in the single Faithhappenings category to which it is most relevant, and must not post content to inappropriate categories. For example, content advertising day care or schools must be posted under the “Educational Opportunities” button and may not be posted in any “Upcoming Events” category. Likewise, content advertising “Counselors” must be posted under the "People You Need" category and not under "Places You Need" category. Users may not circumvent any technological measure implemented by FH to restrict the manner in which content may be posted on Faithhappenings or to regulate the manner in which content (including but not limited to blogger postings) may be transmitted to other Users. This prohibition includes, without limitation, a ban on the use of multiple email addresses (created via an email address generator or otherwise); the use of multiple IP addresses (via proxy servers, modem toggling, or otherwise); CAPTCHA circumvention, automation or outsourcing; multiple and/or fraudulent Faithhappenings accounts, including phone-verified accounts; URL shortening, obfuscation or redirection; use of multiple phone lines or phone forwarding for verification; and content obfuscation via HTML techniques, printing text on images, inserting random text or content "spinning." It is expressly prohibited for any third party to post content to Faithhappenings on behalf of another. Users must post content only on their own behalf, and may not permit, enable, induce or encourage any third party to post content for them. It is expressly prohibited to post content to Faithhappenings using any automated means. Users must post all content personally and manually through all steps of the posting process, using the templates provided on the FH site. It is also expressly prohibited for any User to develop, offer, market, sell, distribute or provide an automated means to perform any step of the posting process (in whole or in part). Any User who develops, offers, markets, sells, distributes or provides an automated means to perform any step of the posting process (in whole or in part) shall be responsible and liable to FH for each instance of access to Faithhappenings (by any User or other third party) using that automated means. Affiliate marketing by registered Users is expressly prohibited on Faithhappenings. Users may not post content or communicate with any Faithhappenings User for purposes of affiliate marketing or in connection with any affiliate marketing system, scheme or program in any manner or under any circumstance. b. Accounts A User may maintain and use no more than one account, including a telephone or phone-verified account ("PVA"), to post content. A User specifically may not create or use additional accounts for the purpose of circumventing technological restrictions (security measures) in the posting process or otherwise for posting content in violation of the TOU. A User may create an account, including a PVA, only on his/her own behalf. A User must not permit, enable, induce or encourage others to create accounts or PVAs for him/her. The creation of accounts or PVAs for others is expressly prohibited. A User must only use his/her own account or PVA, and may not use any account or PVA of another. The purchase and sale of accounts, including but not limited to PVAs, is expressly prohibited. A User must create his/her account or PVA personally and manually and may not create accounts or PVAs by any automated means. Without limitation, this includes the obligation that the User personally and manually solves any CAPTCHA challenge in the account creation process. Further, a User must create any PVA using his/her own valid email address and password. The circumvention of any technological restriction or security measure in the account creation or PVA creation process is also expressly prohibited. c. Flagging A User shall not "flag" (or otherwise seek removal of) content on Faithhappenings without a personal, good-faith belief that the content violates the TOU. A User may flag content only on his/her own behalf. A User must not permit, enable, induce or encourage others to flag content for them. A User must not flag content for others. A User flagging content must do so manually by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and may not employ any automated means, products (including, without limitation, software programs) or services to flag content. A User must not circumvent any technological restrictions (security measures) in the flagging process. Without limitation, this prohibition includes a ban on the use of multiple IP addresses for flagging (by use of proxy servers or any means whatsoever).
5. UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS AND ACTIVITIES
This section 5 applies to all uses and Users of Faithhappenings, unless FH has specifically authorized an exception to a particular term for a particular User in a written agreement. FH has sole and absolute discretion to authorize or deny any exception or exceptions to the terms in this section 5. To maintain the integrity and functionality of Faithhappenings for its Users, access to Faithhappenings and/or activities related to Faithhappenings that are harmful to, inconsistent with or disruptive of Faithhappenings and/or its Users' beneficial use and enjoyment of Faithhappenings are expressly unauthorized and prohibited.

As a limited exception, general purpose Internet search engines and noncommercial public archives will be entitled to access Faithhappenings without individual written agreements executed with FH that specifically authorize an exception to this prohibition if, in all cases and individual instances: (a) they provide a direct hyperlink to the relevant Faithhappenings website, service, event, forum or content; (b) they access Faithhappenings from a stable IP address using an easily identifiable agent; and (c) they comply with FH's robots.txt file; provided however, that FH may terminate this limited exception as to any search engine or public archive (or any person or entity relying on this provision to access Faithhappenings without their own written agreement executed with FH), at any time and in its sole discretion, upon written notice, including, without limitation, by email notice. Any access to or use of Faithhappenings to design, develop, test, update, operate, modify, maintain, support, market, advertise, distribute or otherwise make available any program, application or service (including, without limitation, any device, technology, product, computer program, mobile device application, website, or mechanical or personal service) that enables or provides access to, use of, operation of or interoperation with Faithhappenings (including, without limitation, to access content, post content, cross-post content, re-post content, respond or reply to content, verify content, transmit content, create accounts, verify accounts, use accounts, circumvent and/or automate technological security measures or restrictions, or flag content) is prohibited. This prohibition specifically applies but is not limited to software, programs, applications and services for use or operation on or by any computer and/or any electronic, wireless and/or mobile device, technology or product that exists now or in the future. If you access Faithhappenings or copy, display, distribute, perform or create derivative works from Faithhappenings webpages or other FH intellectual property in violation of the TOU or for purposes inconsistent with the TOU, your access, copying, display, distribution, performance or derivative work is unauthorized. Circumvention of any technological restriction or security measure on Faithhappenings or any provision of the TOU that restricts content, conduct, accounts or access is expressly prohibited. For purposes of this paragraph, you agree that cached copies of Faithhappenings webpages on your computer or computer server constitute "copies" under the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 101. For purposes of this paragraph, you further agree that CAPTCHAs and telephone or email verification are "technological measures" that effectively control access to copyright-protected components and rights of FH pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 1201. Any effort to decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer all or any part of Faithhappenings in order to identify, acquire, copy or emulate any source code or object code is expressly prohibited.

In addition to any and all other remedies available to FH in law or in equity, FH may seek specific performance of any term in the TOU, including but not limited to by preliminary or permanent injunction.

Bond or surety are hereby waived.
