The “Services” referred to herein include the Lawyaw software that allows customers to enter information that is then populated into documents selected by the user, and then modify, save, execute, and download the documents, in addition to other features that the Company may offer from time to time. The Services also include all related components, accessories, and documents, and all updates and revisions thereto.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Services to Customer and certain individuals or entities that are authorized by you to use the Services under your account (“Authorized Users”). The Company will also provide reasonable technical support services in accordance with its standard practices.
The Services are intended to be an administrative tool to assist users in quickly drafting and compiling common legal documents that they use in their practice. THE SERVICES DO NOT CONSTITUTE AND ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR LEGAL TRAINING OR ADVICE. To this end, users of the Services are expected to review all documents created within the Services before signing and using them, and the Company is not liable for any errors or omissions in the documents created on the Services. By using the Services, you understand that the Services may not identify all of the fields that need to be filled in on a document to make it complete, useful, or legally compliant, and you are solely responsible for the content, applicability, and use of any documents created using the Services.
In order to use the Services, you must create a user name and password for your Lawyaw account. Mystacks reserves the right to refuse registration of or cancel any passwords or user names it deems inappropriate.
You may initially create an account to use the Services on a free trial basis for the first 5 projects. During the Trial Period, you will have access to all features of the Services that you would have during a paid subscription. The Agreement applies in full force and effect during the Trial Period. Once the 5 free project limit is reached, you will be able to access the Services, and any data that you have saved in the Services, but you will not be able to create new projects. To be able to create new projects you will need to sign up for a Paid Subscription.
By signing up for a paid subscription to the Services and making the required payments, the Company will grant you access to your account on an ongoing basis, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and your subscription. Within your account, you will be able to create and grant access to your account to Authorized Users using their names and email addresses, and set permissions for each Authorized User. The number of Authorized Users that may use your account will depend on your subscription details and will be specified on your Order Form, as defined below.
The Company may offer new or additional features for the Services during your subscription term, and it may notify you of new available features as they become available. Some new features may be subject to additional fees, which you will not be obligated to pay but may add at your option. All new features and fees shall be subject to this Agreement.
The Company will endeavor to provide the Services to you in a functional manner. However, the Company has no obligation to develop or provide any updates or revisions to the Services, and the Company reserves the right to alter or adjust performance specifications for the Services as it deems necessary or desirable.
By creating an account and providing your phone number and/or email address, you agree that Mystacks may contact you via SMS (text messaging) and email notifications. SMS and email notifications are used to enhance the security of the Services and convey important notices about the Services to you, yet they are reliant on third party providers for full effectiveness, delivery, and receipt. The Company shall not be responsible or liable for any SMS or email errors or delays, or any damages or issues that result from such errors or delays. Furthermore, the Company shall not be responsible for any additional charges or fees assessed by a third party provider as a result of Customer’s use of these features.

Except as otherwise specified on the Order Form: (i) fees are quoted and payable in United States dollars; and (ii) fees are non-cancellable and non-refundable except as required by law. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to the Company. The Company may suspend or terminate access to the Services, in addition to other rights and remedies, if fees are past due.
Mystacks reserves the right to change the fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and fees at any time upon thirty (30) days prior notice to Customer (which may be sent by email). The new fees or charges shall go into effect at the end of Customer’s existing term following the end of the 30-day notice period.
You will receive one (1) free month of the Services for referring a new user to the Services who signs up for a paid subscription. The new user must enter your email address used for the Services upon signing up for the paid subscription for you to receive the 1 free month credit to your account.
The Company must receive written notice of any disputed charges from Customer within ten (10) business days of the date that Customer was charged. The dispute notice must provide the information concerning the disputed charges in reasonable detail.
IF CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT IS SET FOR AUTO RENEWAL, THE COMPANY MAY AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE CUSTOMER AT THE END OF THE SUBSCRIPTION TERM FOR THE RENEWAL FOR ADDITIONAL PERIODS EQUAL TO THE CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM, UNLESS EITHER PARTY GIVES NOTICE OF NON-RENEWAL AT LEAST THIRTY (30) DAYS PRIOR TO EXPIRATION OF THE THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM. The fees for any such renewal term shall be the same as that during the prior term unless the Company has given the Customer notice of a fee increase, in which case the fee increase shall be effective upon renewal and thereafter.
Customer is responsible for all taxes. The Company will charge tax when required to do so. If Customer is exempted from applicable taxes, Customer must provide the Company with an official exemption certificate or other appropriate documentation at the time of purchase.
The Company reserves the right to terminate your account immediately if you violate the Agreement or do not pay the required subscription amount. The Company may issue a refund for any amounts already paid upon your written request and at its sole discretion.
You can terminate your account by sending a written termination notice to the Company to firstname.lastname@example.org. The termination notice will be deemed given when received by the Company. Unless otherwise determined in the Company’s sole discretion, you will be charged for the Services at the rates effective until the end of your then-current subscription term, if any.
Termination of your subscription and/or account includes removal of access to the Services and barring of further use of the Services by Customer and all Authorized Users accessing the Services through your subscription. Upon termination of your subscription, your right and the right of your Authorized Users to use the Services will terminate immediately. You understand that any termination of your subscription may involve deletion of your and your Authorized Users’ data submitted to the Services. The Company will not have any liability whatsoever to you or any of your Authorized Users for any suspension or termination, including for deletion of any data.
