WOHDOC, LLC AND ASSOCIATED PERSONNEL ARE NOT HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS OR COUNSELORS, AND DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE, COUNSELING, OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL ADVICE.

1. Using our Services
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services, try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide, or extensively or automatically copy any content from the Services (in other words, no scraping). You may use our Services only for your personal non-commercial use, and as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies, if we are investigating suspected misconduct, or for any other reason.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access through them (“Content”). You may not use Content, except as permitted in these Terms, by its owner, or as otherwise permitted by law. These Terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services, including the Our American Family name and logo. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some Content that is not our own, and, as a courtesy, we may provide links to healthcare, rehabilitation, or other professional counseling services that share our mission. For example, Content belonging to our sponsors, partners, or other third parties (collectively, “Third Party Content”). We are not responsible for, and you waive all of our liability with respect to, Third Party Content. Third Party Content is the sole responsibility of the individual or entity that creates it. We may review Third Party Content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display Third Party Content that we believe violates our policies or the law. But we do not generally review content beforehand, and we are not obligated to do so.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information.

2. Film Screening Rights; Payment
If you wish to screen any of our films at an educational institution, then public performance rights (“PPRs”) must be secured. PPRs permit screenings in a classroom or library when no admission is charged. You may purchase PPRs to screen a film for a limited time (14 days), or permanently (perpetual streaming or DVD). Additionally, there are different prices for internal screenings (e.g., for use of the film in a class) or public screenings (e.g., screenings that are open to the general public). You agree to comply with the terms of the PPRs you purchase from us or from our distribution partners. You also agree to pay all amounts owed to us for the PPRs under any terms, policies or other written or electronic agreement that we or our distribution companies may have in place. We or our distribution companies may require you to maintain valid credit card or other payment account information with us in order to receive access to our films, and if so, you hereby authorize us to charge your credit card or other payment account for the same. Your right to purchase PPRs through the Services or our distribution companies is conditioned upon receipt of payment. If a payment cannot be charged to your credit card or if a charge is canceled for any reason, or if you fail to maintain valid, up-to-date payment information or to keep your payments current, we reserve the right to immediately either suspend or terminate your PPRs and /or access to our films immediately without notice. Any failure to maintain valid, up-to-date payment information with us or our distribution partners to keep your payments current will constitute a material breach of these terms and the terms of your PPRs, for which your access to the PPRs and our films will be suspended or terminated immediately without notice.

If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms for a Service, the additional terms will control for that conflict.

These Terms control the relationship between Our American Family Film, WOHDOC LLC, and you. They do not create any third-party beneficiary rights.
