The entire design structure, and all of the pages, of the Second Exodus web site are copyrighted © 1996-2020 by Marty Barrack. All rights are reserved.
Visitors to this site are welcome to copy or print any page for their own personal use, and to share it with a small number of friends. Any person or group of persons who would like to make more than 5 copies of a particular page may contact me, explaining what you plan to do with the copies.
All copies of Second Exodus materials must include my name, Marty Barrack, and may not be altered. They must also carry my copyright notice: “Copyright © 1996-2020 Martin K. Barrack, http://www.secondexodus.com. All rights reserved.”
“You received without pay, give without pay” Mt 10:8. No one is allowed to sell copies of Second Exodus materials without my written approval. If you’re interested, please contact me and give full details.
Sometimes I put up a page of my own writing to get it into the site and then format it later, mostly by adding links. No distribution of unformatted or unfinished paragraphs is authorized for any reason. You’re welcome to read them and get what you can from them.

Any page that consists entirely or mostly of Catechism quotations, such as The First Commandment, are under my copyright only as to format and appearance. Their content is copyrighted by the Libreria Editrice Vaticana.
Second Exodus does not own the photographs on this web site. They have been posted by their owners on Twitter for the enjoyment of all Twitter users, in the same way as I have posted more than ten thousand “tweets” on Twitter, for the use or enjoyment of all Twitter users.
Twitter has a commonly used capability called “re-tweet,” which allows any user to re-publish an original author’s tweet. Virtually every Twitter user who posts content of any kind understands, implicitly accepts, and usually is glad, that it might be re-tweeted.
Second Exodus does not accept paid advertising or publish anything for financial gain.
Second Exodus has never placed any photo on this web site that was published with the word “copyright,” or its symbol ©, or any other indication that its owner intended to restrict its use.
Since Second Exodus has no way to assure that the person who published a photo is its actual copyright owner, Second Exodus has not kept records of who published each photo. Therefore, Second Exodus has no authority to grant copyright approval to re-publish any photo on this site.
If anyone objects to the publication of a particular photo on this web site and can supply reasonable evidence that he is the actual copyright owner, Second Exodus will gladly remove the photo from this site.
Fair Use is a legal doctrine that portions of copyrighted materials may be used without permission of the copyright owner provided the use is fair and reasonable, does not substantially impair the value of the materials, and does not curtail the profits reasonably expected by the owner.
