Terms of Use

Updated August 2022

Welcome to BibleProject -- we're happy to have you visit!

We are a crowdfunded project that produces media and other Content to help people everywhere experience the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus. Everything we make is available for free because of the generous support of people like you.

BibleProject believes in sharing what we produce with as many people and groups as possible around the world. We want our resources (including, but not limited to all our videos, posters, visuals, podcasts, classes, audio, notes and other Content) to be used free of charge by all audiences to advance knowledge and discussion of the Bible. While we generally permit distribution of our Content freely (subject to the specific rules in these Terms of Use), remember that fundamentally you may use and distribute BP Content only so long as you do not generate any fee or compensation, directly or indirectly, from the use of BP Content. These Terms of Use (sometimes referred to as just "Terms") are intended to achieve that goal, while at the same time protecting our content and reputation from misuse or misappropriation.

If you want to use our Content, you need to follow these Terms and our Privacy Notice. If you violate these Terms, then you may not use our Content in any way, and the revocable license granted to you in these Terms is immediately, and without notice, revoked by BP.

We're a nonprofit corporation organized under the laws of the state of Oregon in the United States, but we strive to have a global perspective. In these Terms, we may refer to ourselves as "we", "us", "our", "BP", or, of course, as "BibleProject". Users and viewers of our content are referred to as “you”.

These Terms and our Privacy Notice govern your access or use of our products or services, including our websites (including www.bibleproject.com), social media pages, channels, related applications across any devices and platforms (the “BP Apps”, or, "Apps"), online classroom programs (such as Classroom), learning management systems (such as Learn.Bible), and any other BP online presence (collectively, the “Services”). Use of our Content within our Apps is further governed by the terms of service and privacy policies set forth in the Apps and on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

These Terms and our Privacy Notice apply to your access or use of all our resources (including, but not limited to: all our videos, posters, visuals, podcasts, classes, audio, notes and other content, our classroom series, and any other content now or in the future developed, disseminated, or produced by BP) and any other materials and functionality found on our Services as well as to any such Content on our social media pages or our media streaming pages, such as our YouTube, MUX, and Vimeo channels (collectively, the "Content").

The Content may not be used except as expressly stated in these Terms. To the extent that other companies provide hosting or other services to BP (collectively, “Service Providers”), and those Service Providers’ terms of use apply to any websites, social media pages, channels, or other online locations where Content appears, these Terms are intended to operate in addition to those terms.

Please read these Terms carefully before you start accessing or using the Services.

Acceptance

By accessing browsing, or using our Services or Content, you agree to be bound by these Terms, and you also agree to review and be bound by our Privacy Notice, hereby incorporated into these Terms. If you are accessing or using the Services or Content on behalf of an organization, you represent that you have the authority to bind, and do bind, the organization to these Terms.

If you do not agree and accept these Terms, you may not use the Services or Content. Your use of the Services or Content constitutes acceptance of these Terms as a binding, legal contract. Our Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and BibleProject regarding your use of the Services or Content and operate to the fullest extent permissible by law. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision in our Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.

BibleProject provides its Services and Content for free. You understand that “but for” your acceptance of these Terms we would not have provided our Services or Content to you for free.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these Terms, please contact us at legal@bibleproject.com or toll free at (855) 700-9109. All other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications relating to the Services or Content should be directed to: legal@bibleproject.com.

Overview

BibleProject isn’t connected to any Christian denomination or tradition. We hope that people from all backgrounds will find value in our work, regardless of their religious or non-religious convictions. Our goal is to explore the theological themes and ideas that emerge from a poetic and narrative focused reading of the Bible that takes seriously its historical and cultural context rather than promote the distinctive teachings of any specific Christian tradition.

As a nonprofit organization, we object to any individual or organization profiting from their use of our Content. Attempting to profit from BP Content, receiving any fee or compensation from our Content, or financially charging for the use or distribution of our Content violates these Terms of Use.

Because we’re committed to ecumenism in biblical interpretation, as well as the selection of resources and methodologies for that interpretive work, we’re especially concerned about people divorcing our Content from its context in order to prove a point. On occasion we end up exploring parts of the Bible where our interpretive and theological commitments may become evident, but our main goal is simply to let the story and theological claims of the Scriptures speak for themselves. Modifying our Content, or using our Content in a way that alters the message, conclusions, inferences, or substance of the Content violates these Terms and will end your right to use the Content. Please see our Brand Guidelines, when introducing us to others (thanks, by the way!). This is to help us put our best foot forward.

We reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any aspect of the Services at any time, in our sole discretion, and without notice or liability, including by adding or eliminating certain features or discontinuing the Services entirely. From time to time, we may restrict access to some or all of the Services. We also reserve the right to terminate or suspend your account or restrict your use of or access to the Services, without notice or liability, for any reason or no reason at our sole discretion. Accordingly, for any reason, and without notice, all or any part of the Services may become unavailable to you at any time and for any period.

Registration

You may register with us to access or use certain portions of our Services or Content, receive newsletters and other information, or make an online purchase or donation, all under these Terms. By registering with us, you represent, warrant, and agree that (a) you are 16 years old or older (unless registering for Learn.Bible, which is available to those under age 16 only with the consent of a parent or legal guardian) (b) you are able to and have the appropriate authority to create a binding agreement with BP; (c) the information you provide about yourself is true, accurate, current, and complete; and (d) you will only use the login credentials we issue to you to access or use limited-access portions of the Services. If BP has previously terminated your access to the Services for any reason, you may not access or use the Services under any circumstances.

If you register with us, you are responsible for all matters relating to your account and password (including maintaining their confidentiality) and the use of your account by others, with or without your authorization. You agree to be responsible for ensuring that others using your account comply with these Terms. BibleProject will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.

You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account by sending an e-mail to legal@bibleproject.com with “Unauthorized Use” in the subject line. Even if you notify us, you will be responsible for any activities that occur using your access credentials, including any charges resulting from the use of your account. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate your access to or use of the Services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice.

Your Use of the Services or Content

This license is personal to you and you may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under this license or these Terms to any person or entity; any attempt to do so is void.

When accessing or using the Services or Content, you represent and warrant that (a) any information you submit to us is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of that information; and (c) your use of the Services or Content does not violate any applicable law, rule, regulation, or these Terms.

BP discourages you from publicly posting your full name, telephone number, street address, e-mail address, or other information that identifies you or allows strangers to find you or to steal your identity. You are solely responsible for your User Generated Material and the consequences of posting it online. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Services, and to the extent that the law permits, you release us from any claims or liability related to any User Generated Material posted on the Services and from any claims related to the conduct of any other users.

    We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor, review, screen, post, remove, reject, modify, or store User Generated Material at any time and for any reason without notice.

You further agree not to copy, reverse engineer, translate, port, modify, or make derivative works of the Services or Content. Tampering with the Services, conducting fraudulent activities on the Services and any other illegal activities are prohibited and may subject the misuser to legal action.

    Accessing the Services does not authorize you to use any Content in any manner other than specifically authorized by these Terms. Without limiting the foregoing, unless specifically permitted by these Terms, you may not under any circumstances:

    • Remove, alter, bypass, avoid, interfere with, or circumvent any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices marked on the Content or any digital rights management mechanism, device, or other Content protection measures either directly or through other means;
  • Mirror, frame, screen scrape, or deep link to any aspect of the Services or access or use any Content through technology or means other than those provided or authorized by us;

  • Knowingly or recklessly upload invalid data or introduce viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other malware or software agents, whether harmful or not, to the Services, or tamper with, impair, damage, attack, exploit, or penetrate our system or network, or otherwise attempt to interfere with or compromise the system integrity or security of BibleProject or any connected networks, or take any action to impact the proper operation of the Services and any person’s or entity’s use or enjoyment thereof;
  • Bypass the measures used to prevent or restrict access to or use of the Services, such as by hacking into secured or non-public areas of the Services or circumventing any geo-blocking mechanisms;
  • Use the Services to collect any personal information, including account names and e-mail addresses, or use the Services for any commercial solicitation purposes, without our prior express written permission; or
  • Attempt to reverse engineer any aspect of the Services or attempt to derive the source code (including the tools, methods, processes and infrastructure) that enables or underlies the Services, create any derivative works or materials of any kind using the Content, whether or not you intend to give away the derivative materials free of charge, or otherwise build a business utilizing any aspect of the Services.
  • Use the Services or Content in any way that violates any applicable federal, state, local, or international law or regulation (including, without limitation, any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the US or other countries).

  • The permissions described in these Terms will automatically terminate if you breach any provision of these Terms. Any use of the Content not expressly permitted by these Terms may violate copyright or trademark laws, and, without the prior written permission of BibleProject, is strictly prohibited.

    Intellectual Property Ownership

    The copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights in the Content and any other information contained in the Services including, without limitation, software, text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips, video clips, data compilations and the collection, compilation, and overall design of the Services (collectively, the “Intellectual Property”), are owned or licensed by BP, and we reserve all rights with respect to the Intellectual Property. Nothing in these Terms or your use of the Content shall serve to transfer any ownership in the Intellectual Property or our Content to any other party.

    BibleProject Trademarks

    While the copyrights in certain Content are licensed under these Terms for certain specific uses, no trademark or service mark license whatsoever is granted to you by these Terms. This means you may not use our name, logo, or any other BP identifier in any way that doesn’t qualify as referential fair use under U.S. law. This is so no one is confused as to the relationship between BP and our Content users, for instance by being led to believe that BP endorses or sponsors someone who is only using Content under these Terms, and not under a separate agreement. If you wish to make any use of our trademarks beyond referential fair use, please contact us to request a special usage license. Such licenses are not common, but may be granted under special circumstances. Please see our Brand Guidelines , when introducing us to others (thanks, by the way!). A license to use any of our marks may only be granted in a formal written license agreement signed by one of our duly authorized officers. No other person or agent is authorized to grant any rights or to authorize the use of any of our marks, and any such attempted grant or related promise or guidance is invalid.

    Procedure for Making and Reporting Claims of Copyright Infringement

    BibleProject takes claims of copyright infringement seriously. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law. If you believe any materials accessible on or from the BibleProject website, social channels, BibleProject App, or other BibleProject content or user-generated content, or Content as described in our Terms of Use (collectively referred to in this Policy as the "Services") infringe your copyright, you may request removal of those materials (or access to them) from the Services by submitting written notification to our copyright agent (designated below). In accordance with the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512) ("DMCA"), the written notice (the "DMCA Notice") must include substantially the following:

    • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • Identification of the copyrighted work you believe to have been infringed or, if the claim involves multiple works on the Website, a representative list of such works.
  • Identification of the material you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material.
  • Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number, and, if available, email address).
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  • A statement that the information in the written notice is accurate.
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
  • A sample notice from the US Copyright Office is available at https://www.copyright.gov/512/sample-notice.pdf

    Our designated copyright agent to receive DMCA Notices is:

    BibleProject Legal Department - Copyright Agent BibleProject 1302 SE Ankeny Portland, OR 97214 (855) 700-9109 legal@bibleproject.com

    If you fail to comply with all of the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the DMCA, your DMCA Notice may not be effective.

    Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Website is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.

    Copyright Infringement Counter Notification Procedures

    If you believe that material you posted on the Services was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter notification with us (a "Counter Notice") by submitting written notification to our copyright agent designated above. Pursuant to the DMCA, the Counter Notice must include substantially the following:

    • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • An identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled.
  • Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number, and, if available, email address).
  • A statement under penalty of perjury by you that you have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
  • A statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Website may be found) and that you will accept service from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Website with the complaint at issue.
  • The DMCA allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter Notice.

    Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Services was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.

    Repeat Infringers

    It is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.

    Security of Services

    You are strictly prohibited from violating or trying to violate the security features of the Services, such as by:

    • Accessing data not intended for you or logging onto a server or an account which you are not authorized to access;
  • Attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures unless we expressly authorize that you do so in writing;
  • Attempting to interfere with service to any user, host or network, such as by means of submitting a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, mail bombing or crashing; or
  • Sending unsolicited email, including promotions and/or advertising of products or services forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any email or newsgroup posting.
  • You hereby agree not to use any device, software, or routine to interfere or try to interfere with the proper working of the Services or any activity conducted on the Services. You further agree not to use or try to use any engine, software, tool, agent or other device or mechanism (including browsers, spiders, robots, avatars or intelligent agents) to navigate or search the Services other than the search engine and search agents which we make available on the Services and other than generally available third party web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge.

    If you violate our system or network security, you may face civil or criminal liability. We will investigate occurrences that may involve such violations. We may involve or cooperate with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting users who are involved in such violations. Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Services. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS BIBLEPROJECT AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING, OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES

    IN NO EVENT SHALL BIBLEPROJECT OR ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, OR THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON RELATED TO OR ARISING OUT OF USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, OUR SERVICES OR CONTENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF USE, DATA, PROFITS, OR GOODWILL, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, WITHOUT REGARD TO THE FORM OF ANY ACTION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHER TORTIOUS ACTIONS, ALL ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, COPYING, OR DISPLAY OF THE SERVICE OR CONTENT.

This limitation on liability is specifically necessary in order to keep the Services and Content free of charge.

    THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.

    Indemnification

    YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD US, OUR SUBSIDIARIES AND OUR AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE MEMBERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, PARTNERS AND EMPLOYEES, HARMLESS FROM ANY LOSS, LIABILITY, COST, EXPENSE, CLAIM, DAMAGES, OR DEMAND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES, DUE OR RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF (I) YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES IN VIOLATION OF OUR TERMS, (II) YOUR BREACH OF OUR TERMS, OR (III) ANY BREACH OF YOUR REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN OUR TERMS.

    Choice of Language

    We may provide translations of these Terms in languages other than the English language strictly for your convenience only. To the extent permitted under applicable law, you agree: (i) that the English language version of these Terms governs your relationship with us; (ii) that the English language version of these Terms shall be controlling in any dispute arising from or related to these Terms, and (iii) if these Terms are to be construed in a language other than the English language, all contradictions shall be resolved in favor of the English language.

    Revisions to these Terms of Use

    BibleProject reserves the right to revise these Terms by updating this posting without prior notice. We may modify or update these Terms of Use at any time for any reason, with or without prior notice to you, and any such changes to these Terms of Use will supersede and replace any previous Terms of Use effective immediately upon posting to this page. You agree that in the event any portion of these Terms are found to be unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect and the otherwise unenforceable portion shall be amended so as to be enforceable to the greatest extent permitted by law. You agree to be bound by any such revisions. You are advised to periodically visit this page to determine the then current Terms of Use.

    Class Action Waiver

    YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO COMMENCE OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST BIBLEPROJECT RELATED TO ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY, AND, WHERE APPLICABLE, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO OPT OUT OF ANY CLASS PROCEEDING AGAINST BIBLEPROJECT OTHERWISE COMMENCED.

    Arbitration Agreement

    YOU AND BP AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.

    Any claim or dispute arising from or relating to these Terms of Use and their interpretation or the breach, termination, or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms of Use, including disputes about the validity, scope, or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, “Covered Disputes”) will be settled exclusively by binding, individual arbitration, rather than in court, and to be held in Portland, Oregon or another location mutually agreeable to the parties. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. ANY COVERED DISPUTE CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE SERVICES MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

    Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days’ advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. BP will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with us and you must provide such notice by email to legal@bibleproject.com. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration.

    The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties. Judgment upon the award rendered by an arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction. Arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms of Use and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. Neither BP nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private attorney action and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found illegal or unenforceable, the remaining arbitration terms shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). These Terms of Use and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA) and, where otherwise applicable, by the laws of the State of Oregon.
