Content and Intellectual Property Rights
The contents of the Services (“Content”) are intended for your personal, noncommercial use only.
Other than work that you post on this web application or any of the Services, Bnai Zion and/or its licensors own all rights to the intellectual property and material contained in the Services, and all such rights are reserved. You are granted a limited license only, subject to the restrictions provided in these Terms, for purposes of viewing or copying the Content for your personal noncommercial use, provided that you maintain and abide by all copyright and other notices contained therein. You may not modify, publish, participate in the sale of, create new works from, distribute, or exploit any of the Content in whole or in part, without written permission from Bnai Zion. Copying or storing of any Content for other than personal noncommercial use is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from Bnai Zion or the copyright holder.
You may post work that you own. By posting work: (i) you represent that you have all the necessary legal rights to the work; (ii) you represent that posting the work will not violate any law or the rights of any person; and (iii) you grant Bnai Zion a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable license to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate, distribute, and create derivative works of it in any and all media. Bnai Zion reserves the right to remove any work you post from the Services at any time, and for any reason, without notice. Bnai Zion is not responsible for work that you post.
If you believe any Content or posting infringes upon your rights, please provide us with immediate notice to us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bnai Zion may immediately and permanently suspend your access to the Services if, in its sole discretion, it finds that you have violated any of these Terms or for any other reason. Violating these Terms may result in civil, criminal, and/or administrative penalties, fines, or sanctions.
In order to access all of the Content on the Joshua Project web application, you must sign up for a monthly or annual subscription. The details of each subscription, including the cost and any promotions, are listed on the Joshua Project website. You must use a major credit card to purchase a subscription. Your subscription will automatically renew until you terminate by going to your “Account” page within the Joshua Project website. You must cancel your subscription 3 days before it renews in order to avoid billing of the subscription fees for the next billing cycle.
Your subscription may start with a free trial. The duration of the free trial period is specified during subscription registration. Signing up for a free trial will require you to input your credit card information. We will charge the monthly subscription fee for your next billing cycle at the end of the free trial period and your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel your subscription 3 days prior to the end of the free trial period. Bnai Zion reserves the right to revoke a free trial or limit eligibility to prevent abuse.
You can cancel your subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Content through the end of your billing period. To the extent permitted by the applicable law, payments are nonrefundable and we do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month subscription periods or for unviewed Content.
You can update your payment method by going to the “Account” page. We may also update your payment methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable payment method according to the subscription billing period.

Severability and No Waiver
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and such provisions shall be deleted without affecting the remaining provisions herein. Bnai Zion’s failure to enforce any of these Terms or any other breach by you shall not constitute a waiver of its rights to enforce any other such Term.
Bnai Zion shall be permitted to assign, transfer, and subcontract its rights and/or obligations under these Terms without any notification or consent required. However, you shall not be permitted to assign, transfer, or subcontract any of your rights and/or obligations under these Terms.
