As a user, You are responsible for your own communications and are responsible for the consequences of their posting. You must not, and by using any LEA Site You agree not to, do the following things: post material that is copyrighted, unless You are the copyright owner or have the permission of the copyright owner to post it; post material that reveals trade secrets, unless You own them or have the permission of the owner; post material that infringes on any other intellectual property rights of others or on the privacy or publicity rights of others; post material that is obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, or embarrassing to another user or any other person or entity; post a sexually-explicit image or statement; post advertisements or solicitations of business, post chain letters or pyramid schemes; impersonate another person; or post material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or other computer programming routines or engines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or information. LEA does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of communications posted by users or endorse any opinions expressed by users. You acknowledge that any reliance on material posted by other users will be at your own risk. LEA acts as a passive conduit for the online distribution and publication of user-submitted information and has no obligation to screen communications or information in advance and is not responsible for screening or monitoring material posted by users. If notified by a user of communications which allegedly do not conform to these Terms and Conditions, LEA may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and at its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the communication. LEA has no liability or responsibility to users for performance or nonperformance of such activities. LEA reserves the right to expel users and prevent their further access to the Web Site for violating the Terms and Conditions or the law and the right to remove communications which are abusive, illegal, or disruptive. LEA reserves the right to, at its sole discretion, remove a position posted by any agency whose primary function is not related to Lutheran education. LEA may take any action with respect to user-submitted information that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if it believes it may create liability for LEA or may cause LEA to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its ISPs or other suppliers.

Policy Regarding Termination Of Users And Account Holders Who Repeatedly Infringe The Copyright Or Other Intellectual Property Rights Of Others
LEA and the LEOC site respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users, account holders and content partners to do the same. The unauthorized reproduction, copying, distribution, modification, public display or public performance of copyrighted works constitutes infringement of the copyright owner’s rights. As a condition to your use of this Web Site, You agree not to use the Web Site or any other LEA site to infringe the intellectual property rights of others in any way. We will terminate the accounts of any account holders, and block access to our Web Site and/or other LEA sites of any users, who are repeat infringers of the copyrights, or other intellectual property rights, of others. We reserve the right to take these actions at any time, in our sole discretion, with or without notice, and without any liability to the account holder who is terminated or to the user whose access is blocked.
LEOC is only a venue. This Web Site acts as a venue for organizations or individuals to post opportunities, and individuals to post resumes, and does not screen or censor the listings offered. LEA is not involved in the actual transaction between opportunity providers and individuals. As a result, LEA has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the opportunities or resumes posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of organizations or individuals to offer opportunities to individuals, or the ability of individuals to fill opportunities. In addition, note that there are risks, including but not limited to, the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom You come in contact through the Web Site and/or the other LEA Sites.
Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, LEA cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on any LEA Site, in the event that You have a dispute with one or more users, You release LEA (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If You are a California resident, You waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
We are under no legal obligation to, and generally do not, control the information provided by other users which is made available through the Web Site and/or the other LEA Sites. By its very nature, other people’s information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that you will use caution and common sense when using this Web Site and/or the other LEA Sites.
