- Auto-Renewal of Membership. Membership Subscriptions, including those that may be first offered on a free or discounted promotional basis, will automatically renew at the end of your Subscription Term continuously and indefinitely without action by you, and the membership fee for your membership subscription is charged to you at the time of renewal unless you cancel your Membership Subscription prior to renewal as set forth below or your account is suspended or terminated pursuant to this agreement.

We may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“deductions”). The amount and form of such deductions, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. If you received deductions in one instance, this does not entitle you to deductions in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide deductions to you or anyone else in the future.
- Modifications to Membership Pricing or Billing Terms. Pray reserves the right, at any time, to change its prices and billing methods for services sold, effective immediately upon posting on the site.
RECEIPT AND ACCEPTANCE BY FBO USERS OF DONATIONSIndividual Users who are members of Pray may send either one-time or subscription Donations to qualified FBO Users through the “Give” function on the Site. 100% of a given Donation, less service fees that we or our service providers charge to help process your Donation, if any, are remitted to the FBO User that the Individual User has designated for a Donation.

You are responsible for paying any taxes or charges imposed on Donations you receive, including, but not limited to, sales, use or value-added taxes. An FBO User may require additional verifications or information before accepting any Donation. Pray disclaims all responsibility and liability for an FBO User’s acceptance or rejection of an Individual User’s Donation. If an FBO User cancels all or a portion of an Individual User’s Donation, the Individual User’s sole and exclusive remedy is either that: (a) we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion of the Donation (if your credit card has already been charged for the Donation); or (b) we will not charge your credit card for the cancelled portion of the Donation. Do not assume that a cancellation or change to a Donation you have made has been effected until you receive a confirmation from Pray via the Site. As stated above, you will be responsible for, and your credit card or third-party payment account may be charged for, the payment of all fees associated with Donations already processed before your cancellation/change request or a request to terminate your account was received.

COMMUNITY USAGE RULES
- Rules. As a user of the Service, these Community Usage Rules (“Rules”) are here to help you understand the conduct that is expected of members of the Service’s online communities (“Communities”). Your participation in the Communities is subject to all of the Terms, including these Rules:
- Your User-Generated Content. All of your User-Generated Content either must be original with you or you must have all necessary rights in it from third parties in order to permit you to comply with these Terms and any Additional Terms. Your User-Generated Content may not contain any visible logos, phrases, or trademarks that belong to third parties. Do not use any User-Generated Content that belongs to other people and pass it off as your own; this includes any content that you might have found elsewhere on the Internet. If anyone contributes to your User-Generated Content or has any rights to your User-Generated Content, or if anyone appears or is referred to in the User-Generated Content, then you must also have their permission to submit such User-Generated Content to Pray. (For example, if someone has taken a picture of you and your friend, and you submit that photo to Pray as your User-Generated Content, then you must obtain your friend’s and the photographer’s permission to do so.)
- Act Appropriately. All of your Service activities must be venue appropriate, as determined by us. Be respectful of others’ opinions and comments so we can continue to build Communities for everyone to enjoy. If you think your User-Generated Content might offend someone or be embarrassing to someone, then chances are it probably will and it doesn’t belong on the Service. Cursing, harassing, stalking, insulting comments, personal attacks, gossip, and similar actions are prohibited. Your User-Generated Content must not threaten, abuse, or harm others, and it must not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or physical handicap. Your User-Generated Content must not be defamatory, slanderous, indecent, obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit.
- Do Not Use for Commercial or Political Purposes. Your User-Generated Content must not advertise or promote a product or service or other commercial activity for profit, or a politician, public servant, or law, except to the extent you are an FBO User engaging in Donation Solicitations.
- Do Not Use for Inappropriate Purposes. Your User-Generated Content must not promote any infringing, illegal, or other similarly inappropriate activity.
- Be Honest and Do Not Misrepresent Yourself or Your User-Generated Content. Do not impersonate any other person, user, or company, and do not submit User-Generated Content that you believe may be false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, or misleading, or that misrepresents your identity or affiliation with a person or company.
- Others Can See. We hope that you will use the Communities to exchange information and content and have venue appropriate discussions with other members. However, please remember that the Communities are public or semi-public and User-Generated Content that you submit on the Service within a Community may be accessible and viewable by other users. Do not submit personally identifying information (e.g., first and last name together with password, phone number, address, credit card number, medical information, email address, or other personally identifiable information or contact information) on Community spaces and take care when disclosing this type of information to others.
- Don’t Share Other Peoples’ Personal Information. Your User-Generated Content should not reveal another person’s address, phone number, email address, Social Security number, credit card number, medical information, financial information, or any other information that may be used to track, contact, or impersonate that individual, unless, and in the form and by the method, specifically requested by Pray.
- Don’t Damage the Service or Anyone’s Computers or Other Devices. Your User-Generated Content must not submit viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, or any other technologies or malicious code that could impact the operation of the Service or any computer or other Device. If you submit User-Generated Content that Pray reasonably believes violates these Rules, then we may take any legally available action that we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion. However, we are not obligated to take any action not required by law. We may require, at any time, proof of the permissions referred to above in a form acceptable to us. Failure to provide such proof may lead to, among other things, the User-Generated Content in question being removed from the Service.
- Your Interactions with Other Users; Disputes. You are solely responsible for your interaction with other users of the Service, whether online or offline. We are not responsible or liable for the conduct or content of any user. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between you and other users. Exercise common sense and your best judgment in your interactions with others (e.g., when you submit any personal or other information) and in all of your other online activities.
- Alerting Us of Violations. If you discover any content that violates these Terms, then you may report it to us at email@example.com. For alleged infringements of intellectual property rights, see Section XIII below.

Such resolution may include, without limitation, deleting or disabling access to Profile Pages, or any portion thereof, at any time without notice.
DMCA COPYRIGHT AND OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS.
- Procedure for Alleging Copyright Infringement DMCA Notice. Pray will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), as set forth below. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Service, then you may send us a written notice that includes all of the following: (i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice”; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the Service on which the material appears); (iv) your full name, address, telephone number, and email address; (v) a statement by you 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; (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed); and (vii) your electronic or physical signature. Pray will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail, email, or facsimile at the addresses below: By Mail: Pray.com, ATTN: DMCA Agent, 4607 Lakeview Canyon Rd. #456 Westlake Village, CA 91361 By email: DMCA@pray.com. It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. Pray may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and Pray may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA. Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification. Without limiting Pray’s other rights, Pray may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the Service and any other website owned or operated by Pray.
- Counter-Notification. If access on the Service to a work that you submitted to Pray is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification must contain the following information: (i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Counter-Notification”; (ii) a description 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 to it was disabled (please include the URL of the Service from which the material was removed or access to it disabled); (iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (iv) your full name, address, telephone number, email address, and the username of your account; (v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Central District of California), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and (vi) your electronic or physical signature. Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Service. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.
- Procedure for Alleging Infringement of Other Intellectual Property. If you own intellectual property other than copyrights and believe that your intellectual property has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Service, then you may send us a written notice to the addresses set forth above that includes all of the following: (a) a legend or subject line that says: “Intellectual Property Infringement Notice”; (b) a description of the intellectual property that you claim has been infringed; (c) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the Service on which the material appears); (d) your full name, address, telephone number, and email address; (e) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the owner of the intellectual property, its agent, or the law; (f) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the owner of the intellectual property at issue (or, if you are not the owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of the intellectual property that is allegedly infringed); and (g) your electronic or physical signature. We will act on such notices in our sole discretion. Any user of the Service that fails to respond satisfactorily to Pray with regard to any such notice is subject to suspension or termination. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing material.

LINKS BY YOU TO THE SERVICEWe grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable, personal, and non-transferable license to create hyperlinks to the Service, so long as: (a) the links only incorporate text, and do not use any Trademarks, (b) the links and the content on your website do not suggest any affiliation with Pray or cause any other confusion, and (c) the links and the content on your website do not portray Pray or its products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive matter, and do not contain content that is unlawful, offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, threatening, harassing, or abusive, or that violate any right of any third party or are otherwise objectionable to Pray. Pray reserves the right to suspend or prohibit linking to the Service for any reason, in its sole discretion, without advance notice or any liability of any kind to you or any third party.
- Links to Third Party Sites. The Service may contain third party plug-ins and/or applications, and/or links to third-party websites that are not owned, controlled or operated by Pray, and the Service may also include links to third-party ads on the Service or otherwise, to or from third-party websites (collectively, “Third-Party Sites”), including websites operated by advertisers, licensors, licensees, and certain other third parties who may have business relationships with Pray. Pray may have no control over the content, operations, policies, terms, or other elements of Third-Party Sites, and Pray does not assume any obligation to review any Third-Party Sites. Pray does not necessarily endorse, approve, or sponsor any Third-Party Sites, or any third-party content, advertising, information, materials, products, services, or other items. Furthermore, Pray is not responsible for the quality or delivery of the products or services offered, accessed, obtained by or advertised at such Third-Party Sites. Finally, Pray will under no circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or special loss or other damage, whether arising from negligence, breach of contract, defamation, infringement of copyright or other intellectual property rights, caused by the exhibition, distribution or exploitation of any information or content contained within these Third-Party Sites. Any activities you engage in connection with any of the same are subject to the privacy and other policies, terms and conditions of use and/or sale, and rules issued by the operator of the Third-Party Sites. Pray disclaims all liability in connection therewith.
- Dealings with Third Parties. Any interactions, correspondence, transactions, and other dealings that you have with any third parties found on or through the Service (including on or via Third-Party Sites or advertisements) are solely between you and the third party (including issues related to the content of third-party advertisements, payments, delivery of goods, warranties (including product warranties), privacy and data security, and the like). Pray disclaims all liability in connection therewith.
WIRELESS AND LOCATION-BASED FEATURES
- Wireless Features. The Service may offer certain features and services that are available to you via your wireless Device. These features and services may include the ability to access the Service’s features and upload content to the Service, receive messages from the Service, and download applications to your wireless Device (collectively, “Wireless Features”). Standard messaging, data, and other fees may be charged by your carrier to participate in Wireless Features. Fees and charges may appear on your wireless bill or be deducted from your pre-paid balance. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Wireless Features and certain Wireless Features may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless Device. You should check with your carrier to find out what plans are available and how much they cost. Contact your carrier with questions regarding these issues.
- Terms of Wireless Features. You agree that as to the Wireless Features for which you are registered, we may send communications to your wireless Device regarding us or other parties. Further, we may collect information related to your use of the Wireless Features. If you have registered via the Service for Wireless Features, then you agree to notify Pray of any changes to your wireless contact information (including phone number) and update your accounts on the Service to reflect the changes.
- General. Certain portions of this Section XVIII are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Pray agree that we intend that this Section XVIII satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Pray and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days of the first of the Last Revised Date of these Terms or of the date you first access or use the Service, whichever is later.
- First Try To Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Service, the Content, your User-Generated Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of Pray’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute”, which includes those actions set forth in Section XVIII.6), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section XVIII.2. Your notice to us must be sent to: Pray.com, 4607 Lakeview Canyon Rd. #456, Westlake Village, CA 91361. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Pray and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Pray to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Pray, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
- Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section XVIII.2 within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this Section XVIII.3. If we cannot resolve an Excluded Dispute as set forth in Section XVIII.2 within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Excluded Dispute to formal arbitration only if you and Pray consent, in a writing signed by you and an Officer or legal representative of Pray, to have that Excluded Dispute subject to arbitration. In such a case, (and only in such a case), that Excluded Dispute will be deemed a “Dispute” for the remainder of this Section XVIII.3. Upon expiration of the applicable sixty-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the Dispute has a claimed value of not more than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than fifteen (15) years’ experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if Pray elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a three-member panel, with one member to be selected by each party and the third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by the two party-appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case may be, will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award. If you and Pray do not both consent to the arbitration of an Excluded Dispute as set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph of this Section XVIII.3, then this paragraph and the remainder of this Section XVIII.3 will not apply to the Excluded Dispute. If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within sixty (60) days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer or legal representative of Pray consent to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and the $250,000 threshold for the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or another arbitration service. You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows: AAA (800.778.7879, http://www.adr.org/) and JAMS (949.224.1810, http://www.jamsadr.com/).
- Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence will not apply to Section XVIII.8 below. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of these Terms (and any Additional Terms) and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However,with arbitration (a) there is no judge or jury, (b) the arbitration proceedings and arbitration outcome are subject to certain confidentiality rules, and (c) judicial review of the arbitration outcome is limited. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Pray to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section XVIII to be enforceable, then Pray will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration, or to decline to do so and have the matter resolved through the courts. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
- Limited Time to File Claims. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, if you or we want to assert a Dispute (but not an Excluded Dispute) against the other, then you or we must commence it (by delivery of written notice as set forth in section XVIII.2) within one (1) year after the dispute arises or it will be forever barred.
- Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section XVIII.2 will not apply to any legal action taken by Pray to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Service, any Content, your User-Generated Content and/or Pray’s intellectual property rights (including such Pray may claim that may be in dispute), Pray’s operations, and/or Pray’s products or services.
- Small Claims Matters Are Excluded From Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Section XVIII.9.
- No Class Action Matters. Any claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). Each of us expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator selected pursuant to Section XVIII.3 holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section XVIII.3 to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section XVIII.9. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration.
- Federal and State Courts in Los Angeles. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in Section XVIII.3, and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court in Los Angeles, CA. Accordingly, you and Pray consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
DISCLAIMERYour access to and use of the Service is at your sole risk. The Service is provided on an “as is”, “as available”, and “with all faults” basis. Therefore, to the fullest extent permissible by law, Pray, Inc. and its subsidiaries and each of their respective employees, directors, members, managers, shareholders, agents, vendors, licensors, licensees, contractors, customers, successors, and assigns (collectively, “Pray Parties”) hereby disclaim and make no representations, warranties, endorsements, or promises, express or implied, as to: (a) the Service (including the Content and the User-Generated Content); (b) the functions, features, or any other elements on, or made accessible through, the Service; (c) any memberships, membership packages, subscriptions, products, services, or instructions offered or referenced at or linked through the Service; (d) security associated with the transmission of your User-Generated Content transmitted to Pray or via the Service; (e) whether the Service or the servers that make the Service available are free from any harmful components (including viruses, Trojan horses, and other technologies that could adversely impact your Device); (f) whether the information (including any instructions) on the Service is accurate, complete, correct, adequate, useful, timely, or reliable; (g) whether any defects to or errors on the Service will be repaired or corrected; (h) whether your access to the Service will be uninterrupted; (i) whether the Service will be available at any particular time or location; and (j) whether your use of the Service is lawful in any particular jurisdiction.Except for any specific warranties provided herein or in Additional Terms provided by a Pray Party, Pray Parties hereby further disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property rights of third parties, title, custom, trade, quiet enjoyment, system integration, and freedom from computer virus. Some jurisdictions limit or do not allow the disclaimer of implied or other warranties so the above disclaimers may not apply to the extent such jurisdictions’ laws are applicable.
LIMITATION ON LIABILITY
- Limitations of Our Liability. Under no circumstances will any Pray Parties be responsible or liable for any loss or damages of any kind, including personal injury or death or for any direct, indirect, economic, exemplary, special, punitive, incidental, or consequential losses or damages that are directly or indirectly related to: (a) the Service (including the Content and the User-Generated Content); (b) your use of or inability to use the Service, or the performance of the Service; (c) any action taken in connection with an investigation by Pray Parties or law enforcement authorities regarding your access to or use of the Service; (d) any action taken in connection with copyright or other intellectual property owners or other rights owners; (e) any errors or omissions in the Service’s technical operation; or (f) any damage to any user’s computer, hardware, software, modem, or other equipment or technology, including damage from any security breach or from any virus, bugs, tampering, fraud, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer line, or network failure or any other technical or other malfunction, including losses or damages in the form of lost profits, loss of goodwill, loss of data, work stoppage, accuracy of results, or equipment failure or malfunction. You understand that we monitor your personal information within our network using certain proprietary technologies and database information owned by or under license to us, but not all transactions, including those that might entail the potentially fraudulent use of your information, may be monitored and the scope of the network utilized by us to monitor your personal information may change. The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the foregoing events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if Pray Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action based in contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, acts of God, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the Service). Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages of the sort that are described above, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
- General Limitations on Liability. Except as may be provided in any Additional Terms, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will Pray Parties’ total liability to you, for all possible damages, losses, and causes of action in connection with your access to and use of the Service and your rights under these Terms, exceed an amount equal to the amount you have paid Pray in connection with the transaction(s) that underlie the claim(s); provided, however, this provision will not apply if a tribunal with applicable jurisdiction finds such to be unconscionable. For purposes of clarity, the prior sentence does not expand or limit any express, written product warranty that is provided by Pray or a manufacturer of a physical product.
- Waiver of Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief. If you claim that you have incurred any loss, damages, or injuries in connection with your use of the Service, then the losses, damages, and injuries will not be irreparable or sufficient to entitle you to an injunction or to other equitable relief of any kind. This means that, in connection with your claim, you agree that you will not seek, and that you will not be permitted to obtain, any court or other action that may interfere with or prevent the development or exploitation of any website, application, Content, User-Generated Content, product, Service, or intellectual property owned, licensed, used or controlled by Pray (including your licensed User-Generated Content) or a licensor of Pray.
- Pray’s Consent or Approval. As to any provision in these Terms or any Additional Terms that grants Pray a right of consent or approval, or permits Pray to exercise a right in its “sole discretion,” Pray may exercise that right in its sole and absolute discretion. No Pray consent or approval may be deemed to have been granted by Pray without being in writing and signed by an officer of Pray.
- Applicable Law. These Terms and any Additional Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with, and any Dispute and Excluded Dispute will be resolved in accordance with, the laws of the State of California (or the arbitration laws of AAA if applicable), without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. California users of the Services receive the following specific consumer rights notice: The Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.
- Indemnity. You agree to, and you hereby, defend, indemnify, and hold Pray Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs, investigations, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties, settlements, interest, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that directly or indirectly arise from or are related to any claim, suit, action, demand, or proceeding made or brought against any Pray Party, or on account of the investigation, defense, or settlement thereof, arising out of or in connection with, whether occurring heretofore or hereafter: (i) your User-Generated Content; (ii) your use of the Service and your activities in connection with the Service; (iii) your breach or alleged breach of these Terms or any Additional Terms; (iv) your violation or alleged violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances, or orders of any governmental or quasi-governmental authorities in connection with your use of the Service or your activities in connection with the Service; (v) information or material transmitted through your Device, even if not submitted by you, that infringes, violates, or misappropriates any copyright, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, patent, publicity, privacy, or other right of any person or entity; (vi) any misrepresentation made by you; and (vii) Pray Parties’ use of the information that you submit to us (including your User-Generated Content) (all of the foregoing, “Claims and Losses”). You will cooperate as fully required by Pray Parties in the defense of any Claim and Losses. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Pray Parties retain the exclusive right to settle, compromise, and pay any and all Claims and Losses. Pray Parties reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Claims and Losses. You will not settle any Claims and Losses without, in each instance, the prior written consent of an officer of a Pray Party.
- Operation of Service; Availability of Products and Services; International Issues. Pray controls and operates the Service from its U.S.-based offices in the U.S.A., and Pray makes no representation that the Service is appropriate or available for use beyond the U.S.A. If you use the Service from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent local laws apply. The Service may describe products and services that are available only in the U.S.A. (or only parts of it) and are not available worldwide. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Service and/or the provision of any content, program, product, service, or other feature described or available on the Service to any person, entity, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion, and to limit the quantities of any content, program, product, service, or other feature that we provide. You and we disclaim any application to these Terms of the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
- Export Controls. Software related to or made available by the Service may be subject to export controls of the U.S.A. No software from the Service may be downloaded, exported, or re-exported (i) into (or to a national or resident of) any country or other jurisdiction to which the U.S.A. has embargoed goods, software, technology or services (which, as of the effective date of these Terms, includes Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Sudan, and Syria), or (ii) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders, or (iii) to anyone on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security Entities List as published in the Export Administration Regulations (including entities engaged in weapons of mass destruction proliferation in various countries and persons and entities that are suspected of diverting U.S. origin items to embargoed countries or terrorist end-uses). You are responsible for complying with all trade regulations and laws both foreign and domestic. Except as authorized by law, you agree and warrant not to export or re-export the software to any county, or to any person, entity, or end-user subject to U.S. export controls, including as set forth in subsections (i)-(iii) above.
- Severability; Interpretation. If any provision of these Terms, or any Additional Terms, is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms or the Additional Terms, and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms or the Additional Terms (which will remain in full force and effect). To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to waive, and you hereby waive, any applicable statutory and common law that may permit a contract to be construed against its drafter. Wherever the word “including” is used in these Terms or any Additional Terms, the word will be deemed to mean “including, without limitation.” The summaries of provisions and section headings are provided for convenience only and shall not limit the full Terms.

Please note that we are not obligated to respond to inquiries that we receive.

- Assignment. Pray may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms and any Additional Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms and any Additional Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of Pray.
- No Waiver. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms or any Additional Terms, (i) no failure or delay by you or Pray in exercising any of rights, powers, or remedies under will operate as a waiver of that or any other right, power, or remedy, and (ii) no waiver or modification of any term of these Terms or any Additional Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the waiver or modification is sought to be enforced.
