Last Updated: 2/28/18

Welcome to the Terms of Service for the OneParish Service App. J.S. Paluch Company, Inc. (“JSP” or “we” or “our”) makes available a cloud-based parish management service called the OneParish Service (“OneParish Service”) that is used by parishes to manage their operations and activities.  As part of the OneParish Service we also offer a mobile device app that we call the OneParish Service App and a website for use by parishioners available at oneparish.com (“OneParish Site”)(collectively, “OneParish Service App”). A high-level description of the OneParish Service App is provided under “Description of OneParish Service App” below and additional information regarding the OneParish Service App may be found at www.oneparish.com.

Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully before using the OneParish Service App or any Parish Content (defined below). These Terms govern use of the OneParish Service App and Parish Content unless you and JSP have executed a separate agreement governing use of the OneParish Service App or Parish Content.

If you are accessing and using the Service on behalf of legal entity such as a company, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that legal entity to these Terms. In that event, “you” and “your” will refer to the legal entity. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, then you may not use the Service.
