Use of See the Needs and its sites and services constitutes agreement with the following terms and conditions. Any changes to these terms and conditions will be made on this page of the site. All subdomains of seetheneeds.com adhere to these terms and conditions and are linked to this page.

Statement of Faith and Religious Purpose

The owners of See the Needs are followers of Jesus Christ and believe that Jesus Christ requires that all His followers strive to live their lives in a manner that is consistent with the precepts and doctrines of their faith, which are grounded solely in the Bible. The owners therefore seek to operate See the Needs in accordance with the principles of their faith and strive to make all business decisions according to traditional biblical principles. In light of the owners’ faith, See the Needs exists to bring glory to God and share His truth with its employees, customers, and community by serving them according to principles that honor and glorify Him. To this end, See the Needs seeks always to fulfill Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves and to do unto others as we would have done unto us by serving our community with love and excellence. We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including babies in the womb, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life (Psalm 139). See the Needs wants its service to the community to bear witness to its owners’ faith in Christ, and also to Christ’s Lordship over its owners’ lives. Therefore, as See the Needs engages in expression, it intentionally communicates messages that promote aspects of its owners’ beliefs, or at least messages that do not violate those beliefs. For this reason, See the Needs reserves the right to deny a request for services that would require it to engage in or host expression that violates its owners’ religious beliefs.

The owners of See the Needs will prioritize the above religious, ethical, and moral principles regardless of the impact on profit.

Disclaimer

See the Needs presents itself solely as a platform for local communities to raise awareness and promote participation in events of a charitable nature and meeting the needs of the local community.

Ownership

See the Needs, seetheneeds.com and all its subdomains, all of which are hereafter referred to as See the Needs, are a privately held entity.

Subdomains

All city sites and any other variation of subdomains of seetheneeds.com are property of See the Needs and may be removed from the See the Needs online community at the discretion of the owner. Misuse of seetheneeds.com or subdomains thereof may result in removal of subdomains, listings, City Sponsor status, eligibility, and ability to post needs or events.

Listings do not guarantee any service, donations (monetary or of physical goods), or volunteer activity. To be eligible for listings, organizations must be focused on helping local people and be aligned with Biblical values. NOTE: this does not mean to be eligible the organization must be Christian, unaffiliated organizations and other religious organizations are welcome, but the purpose of the organization cannot go against a Biblical worldview as outlined in the Statement of Faith and Religious Purpose section of these terms. If there are any questions over eligibility, please contact the City Sponsor where the organization is located, or email See the Needs at info@seetheneeds.com.

Churches actively involved in community service and outreach are eligible to be listed on their local See the Needs subdomain. Churches may update or request to remove their listings at any time, for no additional charge, by contacting the local City Sponsor. Churches may have up to 3 listings for multi-site church locations. If a multi-site church desires listings for additional sites after the initial 3 listings, the church must contact See the Needs for approval. Additional listings for multi-site churches do not come with additional usernames, and will be linked to the original church listing username/account. Listings do not guarantee any donations (monetary or of physical goods), or increase in church attendance.

Needs & Events Posts

Organizations and churches can post needs and events relevant to people-centered charitable community services for their local communities to their city.seetheneeds.com subdomain. As there is no requirement to post a need or event and posting needs and events is entirely voluntary on the part of the organization or church, City Sponsors and See the Needs may, at times, post needs or events gleaned from social media posts by the organizations listed on the city.seetheneeds.com site in the efforts to keep the site up to date with relevant information. If posts made by an organization or church go against the purpose of the site, violate the religious, moral, or ethical values outlined in the Statement of Faith and Religious Purpose section, or are deemed spam they may be removed, without reimbursement, by the City Sponsor as acting subdomain manager, or by See the Needs. If a post is removed in error, it will be reinstated by the City Sponsor or See the Needs. Any disagreements over post removals may be submitted for review to See the Needs at info@seetheneeds.com.

The City Sponsor will respond to all requests to add organizations, and to create requested logins for those organizations in a timely manner. The City Sponsor will, as needed, monitor needs and event posts, removing anything deemed inappropriate or spammy in a timely manner.
