Amendment July 2016:
To make it simple: If you just want to download and read my books and articles and if you don’t plan to modify, quote or make (especially unfair, irrelevant, not proper experienced based) reviews and comments about my books, articles and about any of my other materials including my websites, than probably reading this Terms and Conditions document would be only a waste of time for you, but even if you decide not to read it you still acknowledge it and you agree that if you use my ideas and my materials you take every responsibility for your actions and you take every kinds of risks of using my websites and materials.
So if you respect my work and my ideas and if you respect what I’m trying to achieve with my work and with my ideas, download and read my books, browse my websites, spread the message, place my webpage addresses to various websites and if you intend to give my books to others make sure that you have the latest updates.
So again: if you want to save time on reading, you have to believe that I’m not in the business of deceiving anyone, you have to believe that I’m not in the business of selling anyone’s personal data or to misuse any kinds of information I receive from anyone, but whether you trust me or not, and whether you read further or not, these are the Terms and Conditions, and I (or my representatives) will use this document and I will make updates to this document any time in the future when it is necessary in order to protect the integrity of my work.
Well thanks everyone
all the best

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the www.vr2b1.org website and all content (including but not limited to any articles, files, books…), services (including but not limited to subscriptions, memberships…) and products available at or through the website. The Website is owned and operated by Norbert Maxim Szentkereszti and the Website is hosted by DreamHost Web Hosting’s server. The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on this Site by Norbert Szentkereszti (collectively, the “Agreement”).
Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Website, before you read any articles, before you read/download/print/copy and materials from this website. By accessing or using any part of the web site (including reading the various articles…), you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the Website or use any services or read any articles or download any materials from the site. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by Norbert Szentkereszti and his website www.vr2b1.org, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms. The Website is available for everyone who can take legal responsibility for their actions.
This is a disclaimer for all of my (Norbert Szentkereszti’s) published articles, chapters and books and any material you can download, print out or copy in any way (including but not limited to using Smart phone, Cameras, Photo machines, print screens…) from my website www.vr2b1.org (or any other website that made my materials publicly available). Please read them before you intend to use any of my ideas, and before you download and/or print and/or read my various articles, chapters and books, and/or before you pass on these articles, materials, books and any other materials to others.
Although I fully trust my ideas and I wrote my books and articles and created any downloadable materials with peaceful intentions (especially towards non-violent people and non-violent animals and beings) I (the author, publisher, editor and website owner (later ‘I, me or my’)) cannot and will not take any responsibility for anyone’s actions, which means that if you implement certain ideas that I was talking about, you and only you are responsible for the consequences of your actions. So no responsibility can be accepted by the author, publisher, editor and the website owner for any loss or damage occasioned to any person acting, or refraining from action, as a result of the material in my publications and downloadable materials and under no circumstances shall the author, publisher, editor and website owner be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, consequential or similar not mentioned damages or loss that result from the use of or inability to use of my works. Please note that although many effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in my books, articles and any other materials is accurate at the time of publishing, I cannot accept responsibility for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions of those materials, books and articles. There is no guarantee that my ideas fit for the purpose you want to use them and additionally I cannot guarantee or warrant that you can successfully apply my ideas in life, especially because success is highly dependent on you and on your circumstances, and also on how you understand my wordings. (Please always consider the different warnings I provide you with by the relevant articles and chapters, which also support this disclaimer.)
Using violence has legal consequences therefore it is not recommended. My articles, chapters, books, any other materials and thoughts cannot be made responsible for any possible violence after making them (and also my future books, articles, sections, chapters, and any materials…) publicly available, especially because of the high emphasis put on living non-violently and especially since we are bombarded daily with violence (with ideas about various torturing and other violent methods) through the media, including films (thriller, crime, horror movies…), news and also various articles and books. Every article and every chapter in my books (but also in all my future books, materials and publications) that brushes the topic of violence are just one of those articles therefore they do not contribute more in enhancing violence than the other mediums. (I would on the other hand recommend for everyone to know his/her country’s legal stand about self defense and any free protection possibilities in case of an abusive relationship.)
So again I and my suppliers and licensors hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Neither I nor my suppliers and licensors, makes any warranty that the Website will be error free, or that the website will be always on. You understand that you download from, or otherwise obtain content or services through, the Website at your own discretion and risk.
In no event will I, or my suppliers or licensors, be liable with respect to any subject matter of this agreement under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for: (i) any special, incidental or consequential damages; (ii) the cost of procurement for substitute products or services; (iii) for interruption of use or loss or corruption of data. We shall have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond their reasonable control. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
To make it simple: If you just want to download and read my books and articles (and/or to print out for you and for your friends) or to give it to others for free (and if you don’t plan to quote or make reviews about or modify my books, articles and any other materials that are publicized and if you don’t plan to make reviews about my website), you don’t need to read further. In that case download and read the book but make it sure that you have the latest update if you intend to pass it on to others and read also the disclaimers. On the other hand:
No part of my books and articles may be altered without my written permission and without my approval.
All right reserved, but special permission is granted for you to copy, share, print, and distribute my books, articles and other materials in any way you like for non-commercial purposes only if you don’t charge anything (not even advertising, printing, data transfer, or any other costs (including your time)…), provided that my books, articles and any other materials remain in their complete original form. (For the editions that you print out you should make it clear that that is a draft version and also that that is a non-official print.) By sharing and distributing my books, articles and other materials make sure, that you only share or distribute my latest updated and approved editions, on the other hand you can still give away all your printed copies, provided that you make it clear that there is a newer version available for download. (You can download my latest updated edition of my books, articles and other materials free of charge from my website at www.vr2b1.org)
(If you are not entirely sure that you have one of the original versions of my works, I would recommend you to download them from my site, especially if you just found the book on the web, because even if the work is protected there can be modified and altered versions in circulation for some perverted reasons…)
If you intend to print out my books and articles (for your personal use or for your friends (who may support you with your real paper and ink or toner cost, limited to the amount that was required for the print)), please consider that if you use 80g/m2 A4 sized paper the printed page will be probably visible in the back of the paper, so on such papers it is not advisable to print on both side of the paper, except maybe if you set up the color to light grey, or you change printer setup to have a lighter color. -On the other hand if you have the option to use digital devices to read, rather read the digital edition to save on paper and ink.
You are granted a special permission to quote my books, chapters and articles and to make review about my books, chapters and articles, provided that you don’t alter the my non-violent intention in any way, and provided that you use proper references and links to my books, chapters and articles (where you make it clear that it is available for free download), and additionally if you send your article and also further details regarding (e.g.: where you published) your article to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address (with the starting word “quote” in the title). Please note that you are not allow to alter the overall real message of my work, so e.g.: don’t pick sentences that were clearly used to mock states, situations, activities, ideas, peoples, systems or any other things…, or that were used for demonstration (or for any other such) purposes only and in such cases don’t say or don’t write that this is what the author said and/or wrote and thus this is his opinion. (Even if the mocking or the demonstration quality was not recognized and understood in those ideas and sentences in the context (considering all my books and articles and their general messages) by the reader and the person who intend to quote the book, it cannot be used as an excuse for circulating false ideas about my overall work and thoughts.)) (Sentences can be used in contexts that carry completely different messages. Some of my ideas are only understandable if you and you’re audience read the whole book and understood the ideas thoroughly.) (If you intend to quote my books, chapters and articles and to write review about the book in a language other than English, please also attach the translation of your article in English.)
Please note that you are not allowed to advertise your systems, your places, institutions or communes or anything by the help of my books, chapters and articles, or by using my name or by using my websites’ names (without a proper authorization by me)). In the future the addresses of official well functioning communes will be made publicly available on my websites, and only those communes will be associated with me, although for the operations, it is always the local leader of the commune responsible, but he/she must strictly adhere to the guidelines and should lead his/her group non-violently and should protect and support all the group members.
If you intend to print out my books, chapters and articles (fully or partially) officially and sell the printed books and articles or if you intend to translate my books, articles, websites documents, and any other materials to different languages please contact me, since for that my written official approval is necessary. Be aware however that there will be no charge for the digital editions, and no one is allowed to charge anything for distributing my books, chapters, articles or any other materials made publicly available through my websites, and even if I approve the printing for selling, it should be made clear and visible that the digital version is a free downloadable copy.
Additionally please note that you are not allowed to sell the ideas and methods presented in my (and also in my future) books (including the supporting files that you can download from my websites, and including the individual articles) to the people, but you should offer them for free and you should use proper references and links to my websites and books. You may however improve the ideas, and if that improvement is significant, you may sell those improved ideas without unfair earnings, if you also refer to my websites and books.
You may obtain my books, chapters, articles and any digital materials for free of charge from my official website however if you liked some or most of my ideas please help us with the advertisement or please support our future projects by buying the books or with donations. (If you found out that someone is selling my books without authorization, please report it to me.) (Please note that the official paper back and hard cover editions will not be free of charge (because of the printing, administration and transporting costs involved.), but I would advice you to use the digital edition, which is more flexible in case of any updates and which you can print out for your own and your friends personal use).
If you were given my books, articles, and any other materials by someone, or if you find it on a webpage other than mine, please take a look at my webpage as well since there might be an updated version of my books, articles and any other materials and some other previously unpublished articles, on the other hand if you are happy with the versions you have, just continue with the reading and using the material.
