|User Agreement for Immunics Web Site, immunicsBuddies groups, and
This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions which apply to your use of the http://www.thewayofimmunity.org web site ( http://www.wayimmune.org) and any other product or service offered by World Harmonic Unified Ministers (WHUM).
How this is supposed to work
There's no password required to teach yourself immunics. You're supposed to get relatively good at immunics before you join our college. If you get a password without being able to do immunics -- and that means without being able to actually have an effect that you can perceive on your immune system -- the contents of this web site are worthless. You will relate to them as intellectual BS. This is why we don't require that you get a password to use your primary tutorials. We want you to succeed, then enter into collegeship with us. Because curing these diseases depends on the sharing of information That's how this is supposed to work. First you succeed, then you continue studying, then you make discoveries, then you share them with the rest of us. That's when you'll need a password. After it works for you.
So if you have already completed your primary tutorials, and are successfully having an effect on your immune system -- which most beginning people can feel within the first few seconds of doing immunics -- you should make a password now, and get going.
If you have not yet succeeded with your primary tutorials, you should go back to them, or start them, and do that.

(including any moral rights) and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish,

and display the content (in whole or in part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other

We try to use your e-mails to serve the public, to serve all our users. This means that
your e-mail may appear as (or in) another e-mail that we send out to others. It may be
posted on a bulletin board. It may be appear in or turned into a lesson. It may or may not
mention your name, though we do try to preserve confidentiality by using only first names.
You may want it to mention your name and it won't. Or it may turn into something
that is paraphrased rather than quoted directly. It can be changed or turned into anything
or used in any way we see fit. When you send us e-mail, you are agreeing to this.
But if we believe that someone will be harmed by withholding something you gave us -
for example, if someone else may get sick or remain ill as a result of omitting a piece of
information you wrote us about - we will not withhold it.
13. Miscellaneous. This Agreement and any operating rules for the Service established by WHUM, including but not limited to the refund policy and other guidelines, constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter.

No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.
KIDS: Please be sure to ask your parents for permission before sending any information about yourself over the Internet.
Cure Groups Membership and interaction in the immunicsBuddies groups and Cure Groups constitute the practice of a religion, just as attending the Sunday services of the Christian church does. In these groups we're all both ministers and part of the congregation -- we minister to each other. Hence the term buddies."
Participation in these groups is contingent on your willingness to help us, and since this is a ministry you will be helping us, even if unwittingly, because as you help yourself and other people you are developing the technology that comprises our Scriptures. You bring in the knowledge from God, post it in your immunicsBuddies group, and we lift it from there, alter it, synthesize it, check it, re-access it, distill it, reword it, or just use it exactly as you wrote it, and place it in the various writings we produce, such as further e-mails, books and web sites, that help people cure things.
That's how the lessons got on the web site -- we all contributed them! More than one person developed virtually every lesson that you see. Did you ever wonder why this is a church? That's why. None of this information comes from our stupid minds -- we bring it in from God.
To put it another way, every post you make is a contribution. Your participation in a Cure Group has the same status as participation in any religious service, and whatever you express there is used by our ministry in whatever way we can come up with to empower our organization, our purpose, and our work -- posting an e-mail in the Cure Drive or one of the Cure Groups is the equivalent of singing in a church choir; and some contributions are better than others, just like some peoples singing is better than others. Make the best contributions you possibly can to your Cure Group. Stay focused on our purposes, and the prime directive of the specific group you're in.
