You agree that by signing a Subscription and Services Agreement, by clicking “Subscribe Now” or by registering, accessing or using our services or website(s), you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service, the Policies included herein by reference, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws, even if you are doing so on behalf of another person or entity. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing our services or this site. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.
These Terms of Service apply to IntegrityLives, LLC’s services and tools, its branded apps, its Learning and other related sites, apps, communications and other services that state that they are offered under a Subscription and Services Agreement, including the offsite collection of data for those Services, such as our ads and the “Apply with IntegrityLives, LLC” and “Share with IntegrityLives, LLC” plugins. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors.” These Terms of Service apply to both Members and Visitors.
If you reside outside of the United States, then IntegrityLives, LLC will be the controller of your data provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with our Services.
As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to these Terms of Service and the Subscription and Services Agreement (which includes other referenced documents and maybe updated).
1.3. Members and Visitors
If you and/or your entity, political party or other organization have chosen not to register for our Services, you may be able to access certain features as a “Visitor” if and when we choose to offer such opportunity.
