The Word PIB - Privacy & Terms of Service

Welcome to The Word PIB, 
the Google Assistant version of TalkToTheWord.
Last modified: 28 October 2018 

Thank you for using TalkToTheWord’s thematic concordance chat app: The Word PIB. TalkToTheWord is the preferred provider of responses from the Parsed Interactive Bible PIB (PIB is derived from the World English Bible WEB). The app is provided by Dialogflow, whose Terms of Service are available here - By accessing or using the Standard Edition of Dialogflow, you are agreeing to the Google APIs Terms of Service, which are incorporated by reference. TalkToTheWord is not associated with Google in any way except in utilising the Standard Edition of Dialogflow and by display of Adsense promotional material. Google is in no way responsible for the content of TalkToTheWord or the Parsed Interactive Bible. Google has not had any influence on the process of creating TalkToTheWord or the Parsed Interactive Bible. PIB is derived solely from the World English Bible (WEB). This is is a Public Domain (no copyright) Modern English translation of the Holy Bible. That means that you may freely copy it in any form, including electronic and print formats. The World English Bible is based on the American Standard Version of the Holy Bible first published in 1901, the Biblia Hebraica Stutgartensa Old Testament, and the Greek Majority Text New Testament. It is in draft form, and currently being edited for accuracy and readability. The Parsed Interactive Bible is subject to the same Public Domain (no copyright) conditions in full. 

By using our service, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully. 

You must follow any policies made available to you within the service. 

Do not misuse our service, for example, do not interfere with the service or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our service only as permitted by law, including applicable export and control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our service to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct. 

Using our service does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our service or the content that you access. You may not use content from our service except as permitted by Public Domain (no copyright) law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our service. Do not remove, obscure or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our service. 

Our service displays some advertising content that is not TalkToTheWord’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please do not assume that we do. 

We will not send you service announcements, administrative messages and other information. Communication and suggestions to TalkToTheWord are welcome but due to the large volume we cannot offer to reply to all communications. 

Where TalkToTheWord is used on mobile devices, do not use the service in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws. 

Privacy and Copyright Protection 

TalkToTheWord's Privacy Policies explains how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our service. 

By using TalkToTheWord, you understand that TalkToTheWord does not collect any data through regular use of the app. If you submit feedback or suggestions about TalkToTheWord, we may store and use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you. TalkToTheWord will not transfer your communications or any data derived from these onto third parties. However, you agree that through the Standard Edition of Dialogflow, Google can use any data it collects in accordance with their Privacy Policies. 

Google may respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act. 

Google may provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online. If you think that somebody is violating your copyright and want to notify us, you can find information about submitting notices and Google’s policy about responding to notices in our Help Centre. 

Your Content in our Services 

When you communicate through the TalkToTheWord service, you retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours and is not stored or copied in any format by TalkToTheWord unless the content of User input displays criminal intent or illegal behaviour. These will be referred to the relevant authorities.  

However, Google's automated systems may analyse your content (including emails) to provide you with personally relevant product features, such as customised search results, tailored advertising and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received and when it is stored. 

You can find more information about how Google uses and stores content in the Privacy Policy or additional terms for particular Services. 

Modifying and Terminating TalkToTheWord 

We are constantly changing and improving TalkToTheWord. We may add or remove functionalities or features and we may suspend or stop TalkToTheWord altogether.

You can stop using TalkToTheWord at any time, although we would be sorry to see you go. TalkToTheWord may also stop providing the service to you or add or create new limits to the service at any time. 

Our Warranties and Disclaimers 

We provide TalkToTheWord using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we do not promise about TalkToTheWord. 

Other than as expressly set out in these terms or additional terms, TalkToTheWord does not make any specific promises about the service. For example, we do not make any commitments about the content within the service, the specific functions of the service or its reliability, availability or ability to meet your needs. We provide the service “as is”. 

Some jurisdictions provide for certain warranties, like the implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all warranties. 

TalkToTheWord's response to a user's input does not imply approval or agreement with that input-phrase. TalkToTheWord cannot correlate the whole meaning of the input-phrase with a specific PIB verse and PIB responses cannot be regarded as having condoned or concurred with the preceding input-phrase.  Moreover, any input-phrase following a PIB verse is purely the user's opinion and does not represent TalkToThe Word or the Parsed Interactive Bible.

Liability for our Services 

When permitted by law, TalkToTheWord will not be responsible for lost profits, revenues or data, financial losses or indirect, special, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages. 

To the extent permitted by law, the total liability of TalkToTheWord for any claims under these terms, including for any implied warranties, is limited to the amount that you paid us to use the service (or, if we choose, to supplying you with the service again). 

In all cases, TalkToTheWord will not be liable for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable. 

We recognise that in some countries, you might have legal rights as a consumer. If you are using TalkToTheWord for a personal purpose, then nothing in these terms or any additional terms limits any consumers’ legal rights which may not be waived by contract. 

Business uses of our Services 

If you are using our service on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify TalkToTheWord, officers, agents and employees from any claim, action or proceedings arising from or related to the use of the service or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, judgements, litigation costs and legal fees. 

About these Terms 

We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to TalkToTheWord, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our service. You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retrospectively and will become effective no earlier than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for TalkToTheWord or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for the service, you should discontinue your use of TalkToTheWord. 

If there is any inconsistency between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will prevail to the extent of the inconsistency. 

These terms govern the relationship between TalkToTheWord and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. 

If you do not comply with these terms and we do not take action immediately, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future). 

If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms. 

The courts in some countries will not apply Australian law to some types of disputes. If you reside in one of those countries, then where Australian law is excluded from applying, your country’s laws will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, you agree that the laws of Australia, excluding Australia's choice of law rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the service. Similarly, if the courts in your country will not permit you to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Australia, then your local jurisdiction and venue will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, all claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Australia, and you and TalkToTheWord consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
