7. SATISFACTION GUARANTEE AND REFUND POLICY

7.1 We are totally confident in the accurateness and suitability for use of all of our legal templates. Our templates are written for us by senior UK lawyers with many years of experience in drafting legal documents. If you purchase a document and find that for some reason that you are not satisfied that it is fit for the purpose that we have held it out as being suitable for, then we will provide a full refund.
7.2 Please note that our refund policy does not apply where you purchase a document but subsequently claim that it was the wrong document or that it is not appropriate for your needs. We hope that you will appreciate that the legal document templates that we provide are available for use immediately once purchased and that once received a customer can copy them or do anything that they wish and therefore an “any reason” refund policy would unfortunately be open to abuse.
7.3 To claim a refund, simply email us with your customer ID which is contained in your original purchase confirmation email and we will aim to refund the payment to your bank account or credit card within 24 hours. On our making such refund, your permission to use the legal template in question for any purpose will automatically cease.

8. DISCLAIMER

8.1 We take reasonable steps to ensure that the information on this Website is correct at the time of first publishing. However, we do not guarantee the correctness or completeness of material on this Website or the absence of inaccuracies or typographical errors. We may make changes to the material on this Website at any time and without notice, including corrections. The material on this Website may be out of date, or on rare occasions incorrect and we make no commitment to ensure that such material is correct or up-to-date. We are not liable to send you notice of any changes or corrections made.
8.2 The material at this Website is provided without any conditions or warranties of any kind. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide access and use of this Website on the basis that we exclude all representations, warranties and conditions which, but for these Terms, may have effect in relation to this Website.

9. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY

9.1 All information, Documents and services are provided “as is” without warranty or condition of any kind. Legalo disclaims all warranties and conditions with regard to this information, Documents and services, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement.
9.2 Legalo is not a law firm, does not practice law, does not give legal advice and is not acting as your solicitors at any time. No solicitor-client relationship will be created with Legalo. You represent yourself in any legal matters you undertake via the Website’s document service. The Website is not a substitute for the legal advice of a solicitor. We aim to update the Website and its Documents regularly, but they may not always be fully up-to-date at all times, since the law can change rapidly at times. Reasonable care is taken to ensure that when a free-of-charge article was first published it was at that time up-to-date, but free-of-charge articles will not usually be kept up-to-date. The legal information on the Website or in any guides downloaded with Documents is not legal advice and is not always up-to-date. It is not guaranteed to be correct or complete, and in many cases will be an abbreviated and simplified summary for general use or general guidance only, and is not a substitute for detailed and specific legal advice on your own situation from a solicitor. The law is a personal matter and the conclusion of legal advice may turn depending on matters specific to you – no general information or legal tool like Legalo provides is suitable for every situation. The Documents are templates reasonably fit for use by you as a starting point for the preparation of legal documents. Even with the guides that accompany them, they are only intended to be used as general templates, which ought to be properly and thoroughly adapted and revised by you to meet your individual and specific requirements. Therefore, you are advised of the need to take specific legal advice for your specific problem or situation and to consult a suitably qualified lawyer.
9.3 Guest users – you use the Website at your risk – none of Legalo, its employees, agents  and sub-contractors will have any liability to you or another party for loss or damage whatever or however arising from use of the Website (whether under these terms and conditions or another contract, or as a result of negligence or a misstatement, misrepresentation or other tortious acts or omissions). Fee-paying customers – Legalo’s liability to you for any loss or damage is limited to damages of an amount equal to ten times the download fee received by Legalo for the relevant Document purchased by you.
9.4 Neither we nor any other party (whether or not involved in producing, maintaining or delivering this Website) shall be liability or responsible for any kind of loss or damage that may result to you or a third party as a result of your or their use of our Website. This exclusion shall include (without limitation) servicing or repair costs and any other direct, indirect or consequential loss, and whether in tort, contract or otherwise in connection with this Website.
9.5 Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit liability for (i) death or personal injury caused by negligence (as defined by the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977); (ii) fraud; (iii) misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter; or (iv) any liability which cannot be excluded or limited under English law.

10. MISCELLANEOUS

10.1 If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any applicable law, including, but not limited to, the above disclaimers and liability limitations, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed to be replaced by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement will continue in effect.
10.2 Unless otherwise specified, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the Website and it supersedes all prior communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and us with respect to the Website and the Documents.
10.3 You must not assign or otherwise transfer the Agreement, or any right granted under it, without our written consent. We can freely transfer our rights under the Agreement.
10.4 Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provision of the Agreement, or any related right, will not be a waiver of that provision or right.
10.5 We may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Agreement, by email, regular mail, postings on the Website, or other reasonable means now known or developed in the future.

11. GOVERNING JURISDICTION
