By using this site, you agree to the conditions indicated below. If you disagree with any of the conditions, do not use this site. We reserve the right to change these conditions at any time, so please check for changes to these terms each time you use the site. Your continued use of the site following the posting of changes to these conditions means that you accept those changes.
Licenses and Restrictions
This site is owned and operated by Corporation of the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. All material found at this site (including visuals, text, icons, displays, databases, media, and general information) is owned or licensed by us. You may view, download, and print material from this site only for your personal, noncommercial use unless otherwise indicated. In addition, materials may be reproduced by media personnel for use in traditional public news forums unless otherwise indicated. You may not post material from this site on another website or on a computer network without our permission. You may not transmit or distribute material from this site to other sites. You may not use this site or information found at this site (including the names and addresses of those who have submitted information) to sell or promote products or services or to solicit clients or for any other commercial purpose.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve sole discretion and right to deny, revoke, or limit use of this site, including reproduction of site content. It is not our responsibility, however, to determine what “fair use” means for persons wishing to use materials from this site. That remains wholly a responsibility of the user. Furthermore, we are not required to give additional source citations, nor to guarantee that the materials are cleared for alternate uses. Such responsibility also ultimately remains with the user. However, the Church maintains the right to prevent infringement of its materials and to interpret “fair use” as it understands the law.
Code of Conduct
You agree that you will not individually, or as part of any collective effort, submit or post information to this site that could be deemed harmful or offensive to other users, nor will you impersonate another user in order to hide your identity or implicate another in such actions. You agree to do nothing that might disrupt the flow of data to and from this site, impact the service or performance of this site, or circumvent any of the controls or usage rules that we have implemented. You understand that the result of harmful or offensive actions may include revocation of your right to use this site and legal action against you.
For your convenience, this site may contain links to websites operated by others. These sites are not maintained or controlled by us, and we are not responsible for their content. Although we have made a good faith effort to link only to tasteful, appropriate sites, some may contain inappropriate or objectionable material. If you find such material while using the site, please notify us immediately.
We believe that those who make information available on the Internet expect that it will be publicly and widely available. Therefore, we believe that linking to other sites is legally permissible and consistent with the expectations of those who use the Internet. However, if access to a particular site should be restricted, the site operator should promptly notify us

If any provision of this agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable in whole or in part, the remaining provisions shall not be affected, unless we determine that the invalid or unenforceable provision is an essential term to the agreement, in which case we may at our sole discretion amend the agreement.
