Privacy Policy

We do not sell, rent or trade any personally identifiable information you provide when using the MyAnswers feature within our website ("MyAnswers"). We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you (such as your name or email address) when you use MyAnswers unless you specifically decide to provide such information in order to enhance your MyAnswers experience. When you provide an email address as part of personalizing MyAnswers, we will not use it unless you specifically request an email response to a customer service inquiry, or ask to be placed on a eAnswers list.

When you visit MyAnswers, we place a small text file -- called a "cookie" -- on your computer that allows us to identify your web browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service, and store your preferences and settings. Importantly, a cookie does not allow us to obtain any personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) unless you have specifically provided such information as part of personalizing MyAnswers.

If management of MyAnswers is ever transferred to another entity, we will transfer the information you have provided to the acquiring entity in order to ensure continuity of your personalized service. We recognize and welcome our obligation to comply with the law and this policy is subject to that obligation. We will, therefore, disclose personally identifiable information in response to a request from law enforcement officials or as otherwise required by law, or if we believe it is necessary to protect someone's safety. If we decide to materially change this privacy policy, we will prominently post those changes on this page.

If you have any questions about this statement, feel free to contact us.

Copyright Claims

AnswerForMe.org respects the intellectual property rights of others, and requests you to do the same. AnswersForMe.org does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on its website or related services, and AnswersForMe.org will remove all content if properly notified that such content infringes another's intellectual property rights. AnswersForMe.org reserves the right to remove content without prior notice. AnswersForMe.org will also block any author or content provider who is determined to be a repeat copyright infringer.

If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):

A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;

Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;

Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;

A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;

and A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

AnswersForMe.org Copyright Agent for notice of claims of possible copyright infringement can be reached as follows:

By mail:

Copyright Agent,
Pacific Union Conference
P.O. Box 5005
By fax: 1-805-497-7099
By email: css@puconline.org

Please also note that under Section 512 (f) of the US Copyright Act any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.

You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 6, your DMCA notice may not be valid.

Counter-Notice. If you believe that your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

1. Your physical or electronic signature;

2. Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;

3. A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content;

4. Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, AnswersForMe.org may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at SpiritRenew.org's sole discretion.
