Rotation.org's "Terms of Service" (TOS)

The following Terms of Services (TOS) govern your use of the Rotation.org website.

By accessing, browsing and/or using this website, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be legally bound by these TOS. If you do not accept these TOS, please do not use this site.

1.  Our purpose/your usage

This website provides users with an opportunity to exchange ideas and information. The ideas and information posted on those pages do not necessarily reflect the views of the Board of Directors of Rotation.org.

You are welcome to copy/print/adapt anything from Rotation.org for your non-commercial teaching ministries, provided that you give proper attribution to the author or church listed, and include our website address.

Distribution of material procured from Rotation.org is only authorized within your congregation. Content may not be distributed to the public via your website or other social media. Instead, link back to content at this site.  

Prior to using any lessons or ideas from this site, we recommend that your church leaders examine them to determine if the theological content is appropriate for your church.


2.  Registering as a member of Rotation.org

You may signup as a registered member of the website, free of charge, by creating a Member Profile. You agree to provide us with complete and accurate information when you register, including a valid email address. You must respond to a registration email in order to have your Profile become active.

A church or organization may share usage of a Profile. You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your Profile. You are responsible for keeping your password secure and for keeping the profile info up to date.

Rotation.org reserves the right to require you to update your Profile details if needed. 

We also reserve the right to modify any Profile (name, info, picture, etc.) that we believe needs to be modified, or to ban from the website, any Profile we deem necessary.

Rotation.org will not use your Profile data for commercial purposes.

To cancel a Registered Membership Profile at any time, post a reply in this forum. When a Profile is deleted, any content you may have posted becomes the property of Rotation.org.

3. Becoming a Supporting Member

Supporting Memberships are what allow Rotation.org to exist! The funds we receive from your purchase of a Supporting Membership are plowed back into the site; it’s how we pay for hosting the site and keeping it awesome!

By paying to become a “Supporting Member” you will receive access to certain sections, features and functions of the website that are not available to those who are not Supporting Members.

When you become a Supporting Member, you are making a private credit card transaction between you and our site’s management company: Social Strata/Hoopla and their FeePod service. Rotation.org does not see or manage that transaction or its associated info. It is a private transaction between you and FeePod; this transaction is your responsibility.

Your Supporting Membership defaults to an automatic, annual renewal. You will need to opt out to discontinue this annual renewal. (You may do this at any time without affecting your current Supporting Membership status.)

Seven days before your annual renewal, an email is sent to the email address in your Profile, reminding you of this up-coming charge. Your renewal details are also linked in your Profile. It is your responsibility to keep your email info up to date to avoid an undelivered notification email.

No refunds are given for Supporting Memberships less than one year old. Full refunds after auto-renewals are not available. Please refer to our refund policy.

Rotation.org reserves the right to cancel and refund (or not refund) your contribution per our published policy, and to make changes to Supporting Member features as needed.

4.  Receiving our Newsletter

When you create a Profile, you agree to receive our email newsletter. At this time we cannot unsubscribe you from this newsletter without also deleting your Profile.

  DO NOT BLOCK or ignore email coming from us, or Social Strata’s Hoop.la, or FeePod’s registration services. Add Alerts@Hoop.la and receipts@feepod.com to your mailbox.

5.  Contributing content

Anything you post is subject to being moved, improved, reformatted, deleted, or summarized by authorized volunteers and editors — in keeping with our desire to grow the quality of our site, while maintaining readability. Rotation.org also reserves the right to thoughtfully add comments to, or to remove material we deem as repetitive or inappropriate to our mission, or whose theology is outside of mainstream Christian beliefs.

By posting at our site, you agree to give Rotation.org the irrevocable right to continue making your content available at our site. For important practical and technical considerations, we cannot remove an author's content merely by request. You do have the right to ask that your name be removed from your content.

With the exception of Rotation.org Writing Team materials, all content at Rotation.org belongs to the person listed as the author. (Content contributed to the Writing Team is the property of Rotation.org Inc.)

By posting lesson content on this site, you warrant that you own the rights to that content or are otherwise authorized to post, display, transmit, or otherwise distribute it. You promise not to post other people's copyrighted content at our site without their permission. You may excerpt minor parts of another person's work, but not substantial parts.

You agree to always give credit to your lesson sources.

Content you post to any of our public forums will always remain in the free public forums, for as long as your content exists at our site. 

6. Linking to other sites/products

You agree to disclose any business relationship, or a friend-of-a-friend relationship, that you have with any resource you recommend in a post. Rotation.org does not review or endorse any third-party websites or services. Nor do we have any control over these other sites/products, and are not responsible for their contents or their use.

7. Other

Rotation.org reserves the right to cull its Member Profile ranks using various criteria. In general, if you have not been active in two years, or your email goes unverified, then your Profile may be deleted. Once your Profile is deleted, your content becomes the property of Rotation.org.

These TOS may be updated and/or revised from time to time by Rotation.org without notice to our users, becoming effective when posted. Please be aware that it is the user's responsibility to regularly review these TOS to stay informed of any changes or revisions.

Rotation.org will not be liable for any damages of any kind related to the use of our website or content provided therein. In no event will the volunteer board, webmaster, contractors, or service provider, past or present, be liable to you for anything arising from your use of our website, its content, or links provided through our website.

Rotation.org is a volunteer run, 501(c)3 non-profit.

These TOS are effective and were last updated on June 20th, 2016.

 


 

Who your MEMBERSHIP IS CONTRACTED with

Rotation.org Inc is the site you are joining. We are a volunteer run 501(c)3 non-profit.

Your supporting membership creditcard transaction is between you and our site's management company: Social Strata/Hoop.la/FeePod.

Rotation.org uses Social Strata's "Hoop.la" message board and "FeePod" website transaction services.You may see those names on various screens on your credit card statement if you are a Supporting Member.

Social Strata logoWhen you become a Supporting Member, you are making a private creditcard transaction between you and Social Strata and their FeePod service

Rotation.org does not see or manage that transaction or its associated info.  It is a private transaction between you and FeePod which we cannot manage for you.

When you become a Supporting Member, Social Strata charges us a percentage of your donation. That's how we pay for hosting the site and keeping it awesome!

REFUND POLICY REGARDING SUPPORTING MEMBERSHIPS

Managing your Supporting Member account, including turning off the auto renewal feature, is your responsibility.

This information was provided in an email sent during your registration, and is included in every month's email newsletter. If you didn't see it, or ignored it, we're sorry about that.

Rotation.org uses Social Strata's FeePod membership software to provide you with a secure and PRIVATE transaction. That's why we can't manage it for you. If you decide to end your support, it is up to you to end the membership transaction PRIOR to its renewal date.  

Ignoring these options or failing to read the numerous reminders and emails associated with this process is your choice.  We understand that people "forget" or church staff members change. We hope that you will understand that the transaction you approved is your responsibility.

What we hope you will do...

From time to time, a Supporting Member accidentally lets their membership renew when they intended to cancel it. In most cases, the member graciously considers it a donation and then cancels their auto-renew, or contacts us for help in doing so.

Instructions for canceling and/or turning off auto-renew on your Supporting Membership

1.  Click here to access your Profile's Membership Page and turn off the "auto renew" feature.

This will set your supporting membership to expire on its one year anniversary. 
Cancelling auto-renew will keep your Supporting Membership in force until your annual membership expires on its renewal date, and then your membership will revert to a free non-supporting membership.  

                           ⇒ Cancelling auto-renew won't stop emails.

2. To stop getting email from the site after canceling auto-renew on your Supporting Membership, select "suspend all email notifications from your Profile's Control Panel.

We cannot manage your notifications settings for you. They are your private options. Cancelling auto-renew doesn't cancel your free membership, only the transaction.

So to recap:  (1) Turn off Auto-Renew, then (2) Turn off email notifications.

Refund Policy

Refund transactions cost our organization money, and that means your oversight or mistake would potentially be paid for by other members if we gave a full refund.

Therefore....

AFTER your Supporting Membership has auto-renewed, you may request a refund if your request is within 45 days of your renewal date

However, we can only refund $20 of the $30 transaction. 

Full refunds cannot be made simply because we will be charged by Feepod for the renewal you allowed to happen, and that would not be fair to our members.

After 45 days of your renewal date, no refunds will be issued. 

We are sorry if you forgot to turn-off auto-renew, didn't see, or ignored our monthly reminders, but there must be a cut-off date.

To receive a partial refund:

If you missed or ignored all the notices and emails about the auto-renew feature, and still want a refund, and it is within 45 days of your renewal, then you can send a WRITTEN REQUEST for a refund to our volunteer Treasurer:

Rotation.org, Inc
c/o Cathy Walz, Treasurer
1518 Elgin Avenue
Forest Park, IL 60130

You must include your full name, email address, snail-mail address, and your Rotation.org displayed/member name. 

Please remember: Only $20 of the $30 annual fee can be refunded.

Important requests:

♦  Please do not contact Social Strata/FeePod to initiate a refund, as they will charge US for your mistake. If we need to refund you, it costs us less to send you a check.

♦  Please do not initiate a 'chargeback' through your credit card company because you ignored the renewal notification. We will be charged an additional $20 chargeback fee for your mistake and that's not right either.

Thank you for your time and gifts to support this ministry. You are welcome to post a reply here or request for help here.

About the Auto-Renewal Reminders

We alert our supporting members to the auto-renew feature in many ways and places:

  • at the time of your registration in the welcome email
  • at the bottom of every monthly newsletter
  • in various reminder announcements throughout the year
  • in several locations at our website
  • in our terms of service
  • and via the annual advance notice email prior to the actual auto-renew.


Occasionally, someone's email program treats our email notifications, or those from Social Strata/Hoop.la/FeePod, as "spam." However, because the initial registration process cannot be completed without receiving our email, you did receive auto-renew info. We cannot be responsible for subsequent changes in your email settings that cause you to block our emails.



You will receive advance notification of your auto renewal  

One week prior to your membership's auto-renewal, you will receive an email notification from "alerts@hoop.la"  This is Social Strata's FeePod service.

If you do not want to auto-renew, and never turned off that feature, you need to immediately go here and turn off auto renew. 


If the credit card you used to create your membership has expired, you will receive an email alert asking you to access your account, and update your card info. 

If your credit card has expired and you fail to update it, your membership will simply revert to "Registered Member" status, and you can upgrade it back to "Supporting" status at any time.
