Terms of Service for

OneParish Service


Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully before using our OneParish Service (“Service”). These Terms govern the use of the Service unless you and J.S. Paluch Company, Inc. (“JSP” or “we” or “our”) have executed a separate agreement governing the use of the Service.


By signing this “Order Form” or by accessing and using the Service, you are indicating that you agree to these terms. If you are accessing and using the service on behalf of a 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 legal entity. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, then you may not use the Service.


Description of Service. The Service is a cloud-based parish management service that is used by parishes to manage their operations and activities. The main component of the Service enables parish priests, staff and ministry leaders at a parish (collectively, “Authorized Users”) to compile and organize certain contact information regarding parishioners, make available to parishioners and others information regarding parish events, and process parishioner donations (the “OneParish Service Management Component”). A description of the features of the OneParish Service Management Component may be found on the features page at www.oneparish.com. The Service also includes a mobile device app, which we call the OneParish Service App, the primary purpose of which is managing the parish directory and event management system and to enable parishioners to make donations to their parish (the “OneParish Service App). For clarity, unless otherwise expressly indicated, references to the Service in these Terms will be deemed to refer only to the OneParish Management Component.


Use of Service. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, JSP will provide the Service, and you may access and use the Service, solely for the purpose of managing the operations and activities of your parish, including processing donations made by parishioners. Access to and use of the Service is limited to Authorized Users. You shall not attempt to interfere with or disrupt the Service or any software used by JSP to provide the Service. You shall not copy, modify, distribute, rent, lease or provide access to the Service on a service bureau basis. You shall use the Service exclusively for authorized and legal purposes, consistent with all applicable laws and the rights of others.


Acceptable Use Policy. You acknowledge and agree that, although we’re not obligated to monitor access to or use of the Service or to review or edit any content posted on or uploaded to the Service (“Content”), we have the right to do so for the purpose of operating the Service, to ensure compliance with these Terms, and to comply with applicable law or other legal requirements. We reserve the right but are not obligated, to remove or disable access to any Content, at any time and without notice, if we consider any Content to be objectionable or in violation of these Terms.

In the event of any loss or corruption of any information input into and stored on the Service including without limitation Parishioner Information (“Customer Data”), JSP shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to restore the lost or corrupted Customer Data from the latest backup of such Customer Data maintained by JSP in accordance with JSP’s archival procedure.

Payments. When you sign up for the Service, you will provide JSP with information regarding the account you designate for receiving donations made to your parish by parishioners through the OneParish Service App (“Donations”). When a Donation is made, the amount donated will be automatically charged to the parishioner’s designated payment method and placed with JSP’s third-party payment processor. You authorize JSP during the term of these Terms to collect Donations on your behalf through JSP’s third-party payment processor. JSP will remit to your designated account Donations less the JSP Service Fee on either: (a) the end of each week, or (b) the first Monday of each month, at your discretion.


Your payment obligations to JSP in consideration for your use of the Service (“JSP Service Fee”) are set forth on your Order Form or are established during your online registration process. You authorize JSP to retain four percent (4%) for credit card donations and 1.9% for ACH donations, which includes the current rate of processing for Donations. The JSP Service Fee is a flat monthly rate of $49 per month and you will pay the amount stated during your online registration process on monthly basis within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice from JSP. All Fees are payable in U.S. dollars. Late payments will accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest amount permitted by applicable law).


In addition, by using any or all of the payments system provided by JSP, you agree to the terms of service of our payments partner, WePay. You can find their terms of service here: https://www.wepay.com/legal/terms-of-service.

Each party will not use the Confidential Information of the other party or disclose such Confidential Information to any third party except as necessary for the performance of these Terms.

The foregoing obligations will not restrict either party from disclosing Confidential Information of the other party: (i) pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body, provided that the party required to make such a disclosure gives reasonable notice to the other party to enable it to contest or limit the order or requirement; or (ii) to its advisors, accountants, attorneys, current and prospective investors and potential acquirers, provided that any such third parties shall execute a binding agreement to keep such information confidential or be subject to a professional obligation to maintain the confidentiality of such information.

In no event shall JSP’s total liability to you in connection with these Terms or your access to and use of the Service exceeds the total Donations received by you in the twelve (12) month period preceding the claim.


Term and Termination. These Terms will remain in effect for one (1) year from the date of your Order Form or the date of your online registration for the Service (“Initial Term”), unless terminated earlier in accordance with its terms.

We may terminate these Terms at any time, for any reason or for no reason upon fifteen (15) days’ notice to you.


Effect of Termination.
