If you use the Service, you will be bound by the Agreement.

  1. ACCEPTANCE OF AGREEMENT
    The Agreement is a contract between you and CM and can be accepted only by an adult of legal age of majority in the country in which you are a resident. If you are under the legal age of majority, you must ask your parent or legal guardian to consent to this Agreement. By clicking the Accept button yourself, you affirm that you have reached the legal age of majority and you accept this Agreement. Some content available via the Service may not be appropriate for children under a certain age. In some cases, ratings will be displayed to indicate the suitability of content or access may be restricted to certain age groups. Parents and guardians should supervise their children’s access to and use of the Service. If you are under 18, you may use the Service only with involvement of a parent or guardian. You further acknowledge that the Service may require a wireless data connection in order to function.

If you have questions about wireless data charges, please contact your wireless carrier.
  2. THE SERMONS ANYWHERE™ SERVICE
    1. The Service. The Service provides features and functionality that allow you to store, retrieve, manage and play back your sermons, music, and related content (collectively, "Your Content") from your Sermons Anywhere™ library. Content will be added to your library upon the purchase of a Sermons Anywhere-eligible compilation, CD, or digital recording from Catch Media. By using the Service, you are directing us to store, manage and play Your Content on your behalf.
    2. Sermons Anywhere™ Library. Once your order has been completed, the digital content that your church or house of worship associates with your purchase will be added to your Sermons Anywhere™ library. There are sometimes multiple versions of music, sermons, or related content. We'll provide you the digital version of the content that we determine is comparable to the version you purchased. If you purchase the content as a pre-order, the digital version of the content will be added to your Sermons Anywhere™ library when the content is released. If you purchase a CD that includes audiovisual or other non-music content, the non-audio content from the album may not be included in the version of the content that is added to your Sermons Anywhere™ library.
    3. Returns and Cancellations of Sermons Anywhere™ Eligible Orders. Under the Sermons Anywhere™ program, when you purchase qualifying content, you will receive access through the Service to the digital version of that sermon, music, and related content. If you download any part of the digital version of a Sermons Anywhere-eligible content using the Service, your purchase will be considered final and will not be refundable. If you cancel your order for or return the qualifying content and you do not download any part of the digital version of the album using the Service, we will stop providing you access to digital version(s) through the Service. The store where you made the purchase will determine if you may receive a refund.

  10. NOTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT. CM respects the intellectual property of others. CM does not, however, independently confirm that all content made available through the CM Service is provided by a valid rights holder. In the event that CM becomes aware that content published on or through the CM Service has been provided by a person who is not a valid rights holder, CM may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, disable and/or terminate the publication of such content. If you believe that your work has been copied or published in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide CM the following information:
      1. an electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
      2. a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
      3. a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located or found on the Website or Service;
      4. your address, telephone number and, if available, an email address;

      6. a statement by you that the above information provided by you in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright or intellectual property owner. Claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement should be sent to CM’s General Councel by mail or email as follows: By Mail:

      For a full understanding of any rights and or remedies you may have in the case of any infringement, please consult with an attorney.

  11. DISPUTES
    1. Disputes/Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Sermons Anywhere™ service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Catch Media will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

      The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

      You and we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

      If any provision of the agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision shall be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable, and the validity and enforceability of all other provisions of this agreement shall not be affected thereby.

    2. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL CM, ITS EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS OR OPERATORS OF THIRD PARTY WEBSITES, BE LIABLE TO YOU, ANY USER, OR ANY THIRD PARTY ON ACCOUNT OF YOUR OR THAT PARTY’S USE OF, MISUE OF, OR RELIANCE ON OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE ARISING FROM ANY CLAIM RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF INCLUDING ANY LOSS OF DATA, DAMAGE CAUSED BY DOWNLOADING OR ACCESSING THE SERVICE, OR USE OR MISUSE OF THE SERVICE IN ANY WAY (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WIRELESS DATA ACCESS COSTS OR CHARGES YOU MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF USING THE SERVICE). SUCH LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO PREVENT RECOVERY OF DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS BASED ON WARRANT, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE (EVEN IF CM, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, VENDORS, OR LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES). TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THEM, THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY. YOUR SPECIFIC RIGHTS MAY VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION,. THIS CLAUSE DOES NOT AFFECT CM’S LIABILTY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY ARISING FROM NEGLIGENCE OR ANY LIABILITY FOR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION.
