Welcome to Lawyaw! Please read these Terms of Use, our Lawyaw Use Agreement available here, and our Privacy Policy available here carefully, as you agree that you consent to these terms and policies by your use of this website.

1. Acceptance of the Terms of Use.

 

These terms of use are entered into by and between you and MyStacks, Inc. (“Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”), and they govern your access to and use of the Lawyaw software and all related components, accessories, and documents, and all updates and revisions thereto (collectively the “Platform”), including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through the Platform, whether as a guest or a registered user.

 

Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Platform. By using the Platform, or by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms of Use when this option is made available to you, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, and our Use Agreement, which are incorporated herein by reference (collectively the “Terms”). If you do not agree to the Terms, do not access or use the Platform, but please get in touch with us so we can try to help.

 

This agreement remains in full force and effect while you use the Platform. We may terminate your account at any time and for any reason. If you wish to terminate your account, you may simply stop using the Platform, not renew your subscription, or contact us at legal@lawyaw.com. All provisions of the Terms shall survive termination by either party, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.

 

The Platform are intended only for access and use by individuals at least eighteen (18) years old. By accessing or using any of the Platform, you warrant and represent that you are at least eighteen (18) years old and with the full authority, right, and capacity to enter into this agreement and abide by all of the terms and conditions of the Terms. If you are not at least eighteen (18) years old, you are prohibited from both the access and usage of the Platform.

2. Changes to the Terms of Use.

We may revise and update the Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Platform thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set forth in Governing Law and Jurisdiction will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or prior to the date the change is posted on the Platform.

 

Your continued use of the Platform following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page frequently so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

3.  Mystacks Platform.

The Company is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice or legal services. The Platform is a document-generation platform for users to efficiently and cost-effectively fill in, generate, and execute court and legal documents.

The Platform is intended only to facilitate such actions, and therefore it is important to understand:

  1. Mystacks, Inc. is not a law firm. The Company, including its employees and agents, does not offer any legal advice, recommendations, opinions, representation, referrals, or counseling. Information posted on or through the Platform is for informational purposes only and should not be considered a substitute for professional legal advice or a solicitation to provide legal advice by the Company.
  2. Instructions for documents on the Platform are not legal advice. The Platform may include suggestions or instructions for completing documents on the Platform related to formatting and completing the form. These suggestions or instructions are not legal advice and are intended only to assist you in completing the documents in a manner that allows the inputs to be saved by our software. Any questions about the content of the documents or inputs should be directed to an attorney or the agency issuing or accepting the document, not the Company.
  3. The Company does not guarantee any documents listed on the Platform. The Company endeavors to keep the documents on the Platform current and up-to-date, but it does not guarantee that any document form on the Platform is the correct or current form for your purposes. You should always confirm with the proper agency, court, or appropriate organization that you are using the correct and most current document for your purposes. The Company is not responsible for your use of any document on the Platform in any way, and you understand and agree that you use any document on the Platform at your own risk.
  4. No attorney-client relationship is created between you and the Company when you use the Platform. The Company does not offer legal advice or services, and communications with the Company are not subject to attorney-client confidentiality protections. We are committed to protecting your personal information, however, as we describe in our Privacy Policy.
  5. No results or outcomes are guaranteed by your use of the Platform. While the Company endeavors to build a platform to help your practice be efficient and successful, the Company does not guarantee any results or outcomes with your use of the Platform.
  6. The Company does not regulate your actions on the Platform. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you are complying with all applicable laws and rules of professional conduct when you are using the Platform, including those regarding the unauthorized practice of law, communications, and confidentiality. The Company is not liable for any violations of law or professional rules by any Platform user or the results of such a violation.

4. Accessing the Platform and Account Security.

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Platform, and any service or material we provide on the Platform, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part if the Platform is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Platform, or the entire Platform, to users, including registered users.

 

To access the Platform and most of the resources it offers, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of your use of the Platform that all the information you provide on the Platform is correct, current, and complete. You agree that all information you provide to register with the Platform or otherwise is governed by our Privacy Policy, and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Policy.

 

You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, as well as any and all activities that occur under your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account and any other such security breach. We will not be liable for any loss that may occur as a result of someone else using your account or password, with or without your knowledge. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.

 

We have the right to disable any user name, password or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms of Use.

5. Changes to the Platform.

We may update the content on the Platform from time to time, but its content is not necessarily complete or up-to-date. Any of the material on the Platform may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.

6. Intellectual Property Rights.

The Platform and its entire contents, features, and functionality (including but not limited to all information, software, text, displays, images, video and audio, and the design, selection, and arrangement thereof), are owned by the Company, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws.

All other names, logos, product and service names, designs, and slogans on the Platform are the trademarks of their respective owners.

7. Reporting Claims of Copyright Infringement.

We take claims of copyright infringement seriously. If you believe that any copyrighted material owned by you has been infringed upon by someone using the Platform, you may request removal of those materials from the Platform by submitting written notification to our Copyright Agent at legal@mystacks.co. In accordance with the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512) (“DMCA”), the written notice (the “DMCA Notice”) must include substantially the following:

  • Your name.
  • The name and description of the work that is being infringed.
  • Identification of the material you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material.
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  • Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number, and, if available, email address).
  • A statement that the information in the written notice is accurate.
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

If you fail to comply with all of these requirements, your DMCA Notice may not be effective. Additionally, if you knowingly misrepresent that material or activity on the Platform is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.

 

It is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.
