Terms of Service

We, Easy Jethro Pty Ltd (ACN 165 307 031) (Easy Jethro), provide services that enable the secure collection, organisation and management of information pertaining to the smooth operation of churches and faith-based organisations. Our services centre around the provision of a hosted installation of the Jethro PMM open source software (http://jethro-pmm.sourceforge.net) (a Jethro System). The following terms govern the provision of our Services. Our privacy policy, which you can access online, also forms part of this agreement.

In accessing, and continuing to use our Services, you are agreeing to these terms on behalf of your church or organisation. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use this website or our Services.

Other services (e.g. training, advanced technical support, additional of customised features, etc) that we may provide to you from time to time may be subject to additional terms, which, if applicable, will form part of your agreement with us.

  1. Our Services

Once you have signed up using our online registration form at http://easyjethro.com.au, Easy Jethro will provide you with access to a dedicated working Jethro System, accessible over the internet.

Your Jethro System will be running on a server that is physically located in Australia and owned by an Australian company.

You, and anyone that you have authorised, will have secure and reliable access to your Jethro System and your data will be appropriately secured and backed up.

Easy Jethro will provide basic technical support, primarily through email. We endeavour to respond to your queries or technical issues within a reasonable time frame, generally by the end of the next working day.

Support requests must be sent to Easy Jethro by your organisation’s primary or secondary support contact as nominated on your sign-up form.

  1. Our Fees

The fees payable for our Services will be the amount stated at the time you sign up for our Services or in our subsequent correspondence.

You can see the current price structure for our Services on our website’s pricing page.

Fees for the hosting of your Jethro System do not include the cost of sending any SMS messages, which are paid for separately.

The prices on this website do not currently include any Goods and Services Tax (GST) as defined in A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999, since we are not currently required to charge GST. If we become liable to pay GST in the future, the fees payable for our services will be increased by the GST payable on them.

  1. Billing Arrangements

Our Services may be paid for in advance on an annual or 6 monthly basis.  Services that are not billed in advance are generally billed at the end of the month in which the Services are rendered.

All invoices are payable within 14 days of the date of invoice.  Discounts for payment in advance will not apply if invoices are not paid by the due date.

Our invoices are generally sent by email to the address you nominate.

When you pay in advance, your payment covers up to a specified number of person records and user accounts stored in the system.  If you exceed the specified number of persons or user accounts, we will send you an additional invoice to cover the extra charge.  Discounts for paying in advance will still apply to this extra charge.

For billing purposes, all person records in the system (including children and archived persons) are counted.
