1. Description of Service
Theologika includes a Library, Blog, Theologika Digest, Ask Theologika, a Boutique, and a section we call OFS – Other Fun Stuff. The library contains collections of websites tagged and annotated by its users and developers. No claim is made as to its inclusiveness nor to its exhaustive nature. There are many more wonderful resources available on the web that have not yet been included in Theologika’s library. Each section has its own unique focus and each is a “work in progress” that will continue to be built up by its trustees and users.
Theologika is in its “beta” release, meaning that it is not yet perfect. It has limits and is subject to errors and faults. It may be modified or terminated at any time by Theologika for any reason. These changes may be made without notice and may affect your access to information and information that you have submitted. We cannot guarantee that any entries you make will be preserved or that they will be compatible with new versions of the site. At a future time, we again expect to offer options for sharing discoveries with friends and for doing joint research. This is not currently an option.
When you register for Theologika, you must provide true, accurate and complete registration information. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to select a username and password and you will be responsible for all activities occurring under your username and for keeping your password secure.
