Terms of Service & User Agreement
Please read this Agreement carefully. By using the Sites and/or using our Services, you are indicating your acceptance to be bound by this Agreement. If you're unwilling to be bound this Agreement, do not use these Sites or use the Services. Moreover, Pro Church Media contains various products and services that require additional agreements, including, but not limited to submission of tutorials, courses, artwork, profiles sections, discussion sections, inspiration sections, and community groups. These various products and services may include separate, additional agreement(s) that you agree to if you use these products or services. In the event that such an agreement exists, then any differences between this Agreement and the separate agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with the terms of the other agreement, rather than this Agreement. However, to the extent that both or multiple agreements are capable of applying without conflict, they shall be interpreted in harmony with one another.
Please note that Pro Church Media may revise this Agreement at any time by updating this Agreement on its website. You should visit this page periodically to review this Agreement, as it is binding upon you.
How We Charge You For Content
Our Standard Service is free, but you may purchase Paid Content in single transactions. When you purchase Paid Content in single transactions, your credit card will be immediately charged for the amount of the Paid Content. The total cost of the Paid Content does not include all federal, state and local taxes, GST, fees, customs, duties, levies and other governmental assessments, which if are required in your jurisdiction, you are responsible for paying. Again, all purchase orders for Paid Content are final and cannot be refunded.
Content offered at-will:
Content on the Site is offered at will by the Pro Church Media and respective artists and instructors (hereafter the “Content Provider”), and as such, the Content Provider may take down or cease to offer his or her Content at any time, for any reason. In addition, Pro Church Media reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove Content from the Site at any time, for any reason, including violation of third-party intellectual property rights or non-compliance with Pro Church Media's Terms of Service. Therefore, Content available one day on the Site and through the Service may not be available the following day.
All Sales Final; Downloading and Risk of Loss; Availability of Digital Content:
All sales of Content and Courses are final. We do not accept returns of Content or Courses. Once you have purchased the Content or Course, we encourage you to download it promptly and to make back-up copies of it. If you are unable to complete a download of the Content after having reviewed our online help resources, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You bear all risk of loss after purchase and for any loss of Content you have downloaded, including any loss due to a computer or hard drive crash. Again, we may, from time to time, and in our sole discretion, remove Content from the Service without notice to you.
Our Content is protected under copyright law and is embedded with reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized copying and distribution. Content Providers may strictly enforce breach of the copyrights and/or circumvention of security measures. We ask that all users respect Content Providers and their Content by not violating their rights and this Agreement.
Our Services allow users to join courses, discussions, community groups, post comments and critiques, and create a user profile (the "Profile").

This license agreement ("Agreement") is a legally binding agreement between Pro Church Media, which is owned and operated by “Jason and Megan Watson Design LLC” which is a Kansas limited liability company ("Pro Church Media”, "We" or "Us") and users of Pro Church Media's Sites and Services (defined below).

Content Provider Warranties
If You are a Content Provider, You warrant that You own all right, title and interest in and to the Content and are entitled to grant the rights to Pro Church Media as set forth in this Agreement, and that such grant of rights to Pro Church Media is not in violation of any agreement with any third-party, nor in violation of any law of any jurisdiction.
If You are a User, we hereby grant to you a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable worldwide license to use the Content for the Permitted Uses (as defined below).

Users may only use the Content for those advertising, promotional and other specified purposes that are Permitted Uses (as defined below). For clarity, Users may not use the Content in products for resale, license or other distribution, unless (i) the proposed use is allowable under an Extended License if it is available for the Content, and the User has paid for such Extended License; or (ii) if the proposed use is allowable under the Exclusive License, and the User has paid for such Exclusive License.
Only the User who registers for a Course or downloads the Content is permitted to use the Content.

A User may make one (1) copy of the Content solely for back-up purposes and must reproduce all proprietary notices on this single back-up copy.
General Terms and Conditions of Use of the Site for All Users
Pro Church Media may terminate this Agreement at any time and reissue a new or amended license provided that such new or amended license will not materially impair any previously granted licenses for previously purchased Content. Any new or amended license will become in full force for all Content beginning on the date that the new or amended license is posted to the Site.
If Content is alleged to violate any third-party rights, Pro Church Media may immediately remove the Content, terminate all rights granted to any user for such Content, and request that any user cease use of the Content. In the event that the user is requested to cease use, the fees, if any, paid by the user for the Content will be refunded or you will receive replacement Content at no charge, at the discretion of Pro Church Media.
