Wow! You actually came to this page? I’m impressed!
The only reason it exists is because my legal people made me include it. I hate fine print, rules, and assuming something might go wrong, but it’s important to stay legal.
I’ve tried to translate the legalese into readable English the best I can. Welcome here!
I run this site so people like you (and people you like) can use it to grow spiritually and experience God-sized lives, ministries, businesses and relationships. Browse all you like, request access to virtual resources, and even download files, just be careful to retain all the copyright laws. You may use resources here for personal, non-commercial use, but if you want to share anything, you must get permission first and always share the original documents with the copyright and other notices intact. They’re there for a really good reason, so zero distributing, modifying, transmitting, reusing, re-posting, or anything else uncool with any of the stuff, including the text, images, audio, and video, for public or commercial purposes unless I give you written permission. It’s the law.

So here’s the scoop on the Top Rules for Cybersurfers who hang out on this site:
If either of us wants to make something of it and wants to “sue” (a dirty word) then I have to follow these rules of engagement. (per the lawyers):
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the United States of America, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.
To the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Marnie.com and/or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights, Marnie.com and/or its affiliates may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Any other disputes will be resolved as follows:
If a dispute arises under this agreement, I agree to first try to resolve it with the help of a mutually agreed-upon mediator in the following location: The United States of America. Any costs and fees other than solicitors’ fees associated with the mediation will be shared equally by each of us.
If it proves impossible to arrive at a mutually satisfactory solution through mediation, I agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration at the following location: The United States of America. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration may be entered in any court with jurisdiction to do so.
If this all sounds un-Christlike, mean-spirited or unfriendly, you should have seen what the legal people gave to me in the first place! I had to remind them that human torture was outlawed in the USA.
Just know, you are welcome here and I’m excited to get to know you better over time.
Love in Christ,
Gifts of Encouragement, Inc.
