Terms of Service
Using Max7 - General Information
Max7 users are able to practically participate in the Max7 community by donating resources or providing feedback on resources. All resources available from Max7 are anonymous – all contributors have agreed to this anonymity.
Comments that provide constructive feedback on using resources in different contexts are encouraged on this website. Your perspective is unique and you may have experience that is useful to others in their ministry as they serve children and young people.
If you are providing comments about resources please do not compromise the anonymity of resource producers. If such a comment is posted, you will be requested to remove the comment. If no action is taken, the comment will be removed by a moderator. Your help in this is appreciated.
You are free to use any Max7 resource so long as it is not for profit or any other commercial purposes, the use is consistent with the Max7 values, which may be found at http://www.max7.org/about, and your use does not contravene any applicable law or regulation.
This means you can:
- Duplicate resources for your own use and/or the use of your leaders, children, church or group.
- Distribute resources for your own use and/or the use of your leaders, children, church or group.
You cannot sell resources or incorporate them in any commercial offering.
If you are aware of Max7 resources being sold, or have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you copy and/or distribute Max7 resources (whether by burning, sending, duplicating or whatever means) please make reference to www.max7.org in order to let others know about the website and resources.
