6. WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER
6.1 The company shall use reasonable efforts consistent with prevailing industry standards to maintain the Services in a manner which minimizes errors and interruptions in the Services and shall perform the Services in a professional and workmanlike manner. Services may be temporarily unavailable for scheduled maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance, either by Company or by third-party providers, or because of other causes beyond Company’s reasonable control. However, Company does not warrant that the Services will be uninterrupted or error free; nor does it make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from use of the Services.
6.2 EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND COMPANY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. CUSTOMER AGREES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT THE SERVICE OFFERS GENERAL AND/OR STATISTICAL INFORMATION ABOUT LEGAL DOCUMENTS AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL ADVICE. THE COMPANY IS NOT A LAW FIRM AND NEITHER THE EMPLOYEES OF THE COMPANY NOR ITS CONSULTANTS ARE REPRESENTING THE CUSTOMER OR ACTING AS THE CUSTOMER’S ATTORNEY. CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SERVICE DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND THE COMPANY OR ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES OR CONSULTANTS.
6.3 The Company is authorized to provide Legal Services by the Utah Supreme Court. However, the Company is not a law firm and the Legal Service is not a lawyer. This means that (i) some of the people who own/manage the Company are not lawyers, (ii) some protections like the attorney-client privilege, may be different from those received from a law firm, and (iii) someone involved with Customer or with its legal issue, including people on the other side of a transaction, could be using these Legal Services as well, and (iv) the Company could be required to disclose Customer communication (such as questions and information submissions) to third parties.
6.4 The Customer has not requested and the Company has not agreed to provide any other Legal Services of any nature or variety, including but not limited to, business objectives, ownership structure, tax, or any other matter. It is the responsibility of the Customer to review all contracts returned to it by the Company through the Services prior to final execution with the counterparty in order to confirm that such documents reflect the Customer’s needs and are suitable for its purposes.
6.5 For contracts with foreign jurisdictions outside of the USA: Since the Legal Services retained by Customer are provided by the Company by virtue of a USA license, the Customer acknowledges that for contracts that are governed by laws outside of the USA, the Company will provide the Services but is unable to provide Legal Services such as negotiation with the other party on your behalf. In such case, the Company recommends that the Customer consults with local counsel who specializes in the relevant jurisdiction.
Any questions should be directed to email@example.com.
7. CONFLICT OF INTERESTS
Customer understands that other customers of the Company’s other offerings or other Superlegal customers could be on the other side of a transaction. The Company has implemented processes and procedures to address potential conflict of interest situations, including where two of the Company’s customers are on opposing sides of a contract provided to the Company for review. Customer acknowledges that it has read and understands the Company’s Conflict of Interest Policy. Any questions in this regard should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, EXCEPT FOR BODILY INJURY OF A PERSON, COMPANY AND ITS SUPPLIERS (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ALL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY SUPPLIERS), OFFICERS, AFFILIATES, REPRESENTATIVES, CONTRACTORS AND EMPLOYEES SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT OR TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATED THERETO UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY: (A) FOR ERROR OR INTERRUPTION OF USE OR FOR LOSS OR INACCURACY OR CORRUPTION OF DATA OR COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY OR LOSS OF BUSINESS; (B) FOR ANY INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; (C) FOR ANY MATTER BEYOND COMPANY’S REASONABLE CONTROL; OR (D) FOR ANY AMOUNTS THAT, TOGETHER WITH AMOUNTS ASSOCIATED WITH ALL OTHER CLAIMS, EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO COMPANY FOR THE SERVICES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACT THAT GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY, IN EACH CASE, WHETHER OR NOT COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by Customer except with Company’s prior written consent. Company may transfer and assign any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement without consent. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications, and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all waivers and modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and Customer does not have any authority of any kind to bind Company in any respect whatsoever. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. All notices under this Agreement will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when received if personally delivered; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or e-mail; the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service; and upon receipt, if sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.
