Terms of Service

Version 1.1

21 February 2023

Welcome to Torah.Global. We are thrilled you are here and give you a very warm welcome and Shalom! Torah.Global is an online social community where members can search for other members, make contact, and interact in user-created groups.  Our mission is to connect Torah observant communities across the globe while strengthening and encouraging one another as we follow the Risen Messiah (Hebrews 10:25). To that end, we have created these Terms of Service to create an uplifting and fruitful experience, not only for you but also for those you interact with.

1. Introduction

Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy and all policies posted on our site set out the terms on which we offer you access to and use of our site, services, applications and tools (collectively “Services”). All policies and the Privacy Policy are incorporated into these Terms of Use. You agree to comply with the full Terms of Use when accessing or using our Services. The Terms of Use set out below take effect from 21 February 2023. For terms of service prior to this date please contact us at admin@Torah.Global.

2. Torah.Global Statement of Belief

You agree to the following Statement of Belief:

  • The entire Bible, both Old and New Testament is the inspired word of YHWH.
  • The Torah continues to be a valid guide for our lives (i.e. you observe Shabbat, Feast Days and/or food laws).
  • Yahushua/Yeshua of Nazareth is the Risen Messiah.

3. User Account

To protect your privacy and limit the risk of fraudulent accounts, we require users to create an account with our Website and provide the following information:

  • First name
  • Last name (not viewable to other registered users)
  • Nickname
  • Profile type (individual, family/couple, or congregation/group)
  • About me/our group
  • Location. For your privacy, we strongly recommend using your town/suburb/city and not your home address. See our privacy page for further information.

4. Account Approval/ Rejection

  • Once your information has been submitted, Torah.Global will manually review your account request and approve or reject your account.
  • In most cases accounts will be approved unless one of the following occurs:
  • The “about me/our group” information isn’t complete. Submitted details violate our Terms of Service.
  • Account appears to be a fake account.
  • Profile clearly violates our Statement of Belief

You will receive an email indicating whether your account request has been approved or rejected. If your account is rejected and you believe we have made an error, we kindly ask that you email us at admin@Torah.Global and ask to have your account reviewed.

5. Using Torah.Global

  • Violate any laws or the Posting Rules;

  • Strive to be peaceful (Romans 12:18).
  • Treat others with respect, especially when dealing with differences of opinion.

7. Prohibited Group Formation

We plan that one of our future implementations on our Website will be a specific group for singles with additional profile and search functionality. As such, we request that no “singles” or similar group be created with the intention of connecting Torah observant singles.

8. Post/ Profile Removal

Failure to comply with our Terms of Service may result in a profile deletion and/or ban from our Website.  We maintain the right to remove posts, threads or profiles should they contain the following:

9. Abusing Torah.Global Services

Torah.Global works to keep the Services working properly and the community safe. Please report problems, offensive content and policy breaches to us at admin@Torah.Global.

You are solely responsible for all information that you give to Torah.Global and any consequences that may result from your posts. We can at our discretion refuse, delete or take down content that we think is inappropriate or breaching these Terms of Use. We also can at our discretion restrict a user’s usage of the Services either temporarily or permanently, or refuse a user’s registration.

Without limiting other remedies, we may issue warnings, limit or terminate our Services, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the Services if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. However, whether we take any of these steps, we don’t accept any liability for monitoring the Services or for unauthorized or unlawful content on the Services or use of the Services by users. You also accept that Torah.Global is not under any obligation to monitor any data or content which is submitted to or available on the Services.  ​​​

10. Global Marketplace

We may remove your ad if it is flagged on any of our sites, or if we believe it causes problems or violates any law or policy. 

11. Fees and Services

Using the Services is generally free. We may sometimes charge a fee for certain features or Services. If the feature you use incurs a fee, you will be able to review and accept that charge before purchase. Our fees are quoted in United States Dollar, and we may sometimes change them. We’ll notify you of changes to our fees by posting the changes on the site.

We may sometimes temporarily change our fees for testing purposes, promotional events or new features, these changes take effect from the time the price change is posted to the site. Our fees are non-refundable after the feature is supplied, and you are responsible for paying them when they are due. If you don’t, we may limit your ability to use the Services.

You agree to provide accurate information necessary for Torah.Global to comply with our obligations under applicable law.  You are solely responsible for collecting and remitting any applicable taxes resulting from the sale of your items or services listed on Torah.Global’s Services.

12. Content

Torah.Global’s Services contain content from us, you, and other users. Torah.Global is protected by copyright laws and international treaties. Content displayed on or via the Services is protected as a collective work and/or compilation, pursuant to copyrights laws and international conventions. You agree not to copy, distribute the Services or modify content from the Services, our trademarks or copyrights without our express written consent. You may not disassemble or decompile, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to discover any source code contained in the Services. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree not to reproduce, copy, sell, resell, or exploit for any purposes any aspect of the Services (other than your own content).

When you give us content, including pictures, you grant us and represent that you have the right to grant us, a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, design, database and intellectual property rights to that content, in any media whether now known or to be discovered in the future, including third party sites and applications. You also waive all moral rights you have in the content to the fullest extent permitted by law. We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms or the rights of any other party.

13. Reporting Intellectual Property Infringements (Verified Rights Owners – VeRO)

Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties. This includes, but is not limited to, content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as copyright and trademark (e.g. offering counterfeit items for sale). We can remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms, our policies or of any party’s rights. If you have a good faith belief that a listing on any of the Services infringes your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, contact us at admin@Torah.Global. Only the intellectual property rights owner can report potentially infringing items or listings. We can share, in accordance with applicable law, the completed NOCI form with the third party that originally posted the potentially infringing listing. 

14. Legal and Financial Advice

You acknowledge and agree that you have the opportunity to obtain independent legal and financial advice from appropriately qualified professional advisers and that you take into account your personal objectives, financial situation and needs before buying or selling an item via our Services. 

15. Limitation of Liability

Nothing in these Terms of Use (including this clause) excludes, restricts or modifies any rights or statutory guarantees that you may have under applicable laws that cannot be excluded, restricted or modified, including any such rights or statutory guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law.

To the extent that these Terms of Use are found to exclude, restrict or modify any such rights or statutory guarantees, those rights and/or statutory guarantees prevail to the extent of the inconsistency.

Services are provided “as is” and “as available”. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do. As most of the content on the Services comes from other users, we do not guarantee the accuracy of postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what is offered.

We also cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our Services. While we will use reasonable efforts to maintain an uninterrupted service, we cannot guarantee this and, to the extent permitted by law, we do not give any promises or warranties (whether express or implied) about the availability of our Services or that the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free. Notification functionality in the Services may not occur in real time. That functionality is subject to delays beyond our control, including without limitation, delays or latency due to your physical location or your wireless data service provider’s network.

To the extent permitted by law:

  • We are not liable for the posting of any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene or indecent information, or material of any kind by a user of the Service which violates or infringes upon your rights, including without limitation any transmissions constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law.
  • And without limiting any rights that you may have under the Australian Consumer Law, Torah.Global’s liability to you for any failure by Torah.Global to comply with any statutory guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law is limited to Torah.Global supplying the Services again or paying you the cost of having the Services supplied again.

In addition, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we (including our parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and our and their officers, directors, agents and employees) are not liable, and you agree not to hold us responsible, for any damages or losses (including, but not limited to, loss of money, goodwill or reputation, profits, other intangible losses, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages) resulting directly or indirectly from:

  • The content you provide (directly or indirectly) using our Services;
  • Your use of or your inability to use our Services;
  • Delays or disruptions in our Services;
  • Viruses or other malicious software obtained by accessing or linking to our Services;
  • Glitches, bugs, errors, or inaccuracies of any kind in our Services;
  • Damage to your hardware device from the use of any Service;
  • The content, actions, or inactions of third parties, including items listed using our Services;
  • A suspension or other action taken with respect to your account for breach or these Terms of Use or our policies;
  • Your need to modify practices, content, or behaviour, or your loss of or inability to do business, as a result of changes to these Terms of Use or our policies.

Torah.Global excludes any liability to you for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of Torah.Global failing to comply with an applicable statutory guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law if you suffering such loss or damage was not reasonably foreseeable and was not directly caused by Torah.Global.

16. Indemnification

You will indemnify and hold harmless Torah.Global and our affiliates and our and their respective officers, directors, agents and employees (each an “Indemnified Party”), from any claim made by any third party, together with any amounts payable to the third party whether in settlement or as may otherwise be awarded, and reasonable legal costs incurred by any of the Indemnified Parties, arising from or relating to your use of the Services, any alleged violation by you of the applicable terms, and any alleged violation by you of any applicable law or regulation. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, but doing so will not excuse your indemnity obligations. 

17. Release

If you have a dispute with one or more Torah.Global users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known or unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. 

18. Personal Information

By using the Services, you agree to the collection, transfer, storage and use of your personal information by us (the “data controller”) on servers located in the United States and in the European Union. 

19. Severability

If a provision of these Terms of Use is illegal or unenforceable in any relevant jurisdiction, it may be severed for the purposes of that jurisdiction without affecting the enforceability of the other provisions of these Terms of Use. 

General. These Terms of Use and the other policies posted on the Services set out the entire agreement between Torah.Global and you, overriding any prior agreements. From 4 February 2023, this agreement is governed by the laws of Tasmania, Australia. We both submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Tasmania, Australia. If we don’t enforce any particular provision, we are not waiving our right to do so later. If a court strikes down any of these Terms of Use, the remaining terms will survive. We may automatically assign this agreement in our sole discretion in accordance with the notice provision below (our assignment to an affiliate will not require notice). Except for notices about illegal or infringing content, your notices to us must be sent by registered mail to: 


PO Box 7

Mowbray, Tasmania


We will send notices to you via the email address you provide, or by registered mail. Notices sent by registered mail will be deemed received five days following the date of mailing. We may update this agreement at any time, with updates taking effect when you next use the site or after 30 days, whichever is sooner. No other amendment to this agreement will be effective unless made in writing, signed by you and by us.   Send questions, comments or complaints to Torah.Global at admin@Torah.Global
