By using the legalinz.com website (the “Site” or “Legal Inz”) or by using or purchasing any services on this Site, you hereby expressly agree to follow and be bound by these terms and conditions (the “Terms”) and agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
In these Terms, the words “you”, “your” and “I” refer to each client, Site visitor, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Legal Inz and “Services” refer to all services provided by us.
It is your responsibility to review these Terms periodically. If at any time you find these Terms unacceptable or if you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use this Site or any Services. We may revise these Terms at any time without notice to you.
YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THE SITE, ANY APPLICATIONS, AND THE SERVICES YOU ARE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OF AGE AND YOU ARE LEGALLY ABLE TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT.
Legal Inz provides an online legal portal to give visitors a general understanding of the law, an automated software solution (the “Application”) to individuals who choose to prepare their own legal documents.
Legal Inz does not provide any legal advice in connection with the free or paid Services and those free or unpaid Services are not substitutes for the advice of a lawyer. The Services made available on the Site may not be suitable for you in your particular circumstance as no general advice or Services can fit every circumstance. It is thus your responsibility to take legal advice either from a lawyer when using any Services on the Site. Legal Inz does not accept any liability for any losses incurred by you as a result of your use of the Services on the Site.
The legal information contained on the Site is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. Therefore, if you need legal advice on a specific issue, you should consult a lawyer.
Where Legal Inz assists you in relation to any advice on the laws of jurisdictions other than the UAE, any such advice is given based on the research conducted on the laws of such jurisdictions. On a case-by-case basis, on your specific request, Legal Inz can procure legal advice from lawyers in relevant jurisdictions. The relevant fee/cost shall be payable by you in advance.
Legal Inz strives to keep its legal documents accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes rapidly, Legal Inz cannot guarantee that all of the information on the Site or the legal documents are completely up-to-date.
From time to time, Legal Inz may perform certain lawyer access services and introduce our visitors to lawyers through various methods. At no time is a lawyer-client relationship fostered or created with Legal Inz through the performance of any such services.
This Site and the Services are not intended to create any lawyer-client relationship, and your use of this Site does not and will not create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Legal Inz. You will be representing yourself in any activity you undertake through the Site. A lawyer-client relationship will only be created when you are advised by a Legal Inz lawyer on any specific issue.
In connection with any Services, we do not review your answers for legal sufficiency and we do not accept any responsibility for any incomplete or incorrect information provided by you in connection with the paid Services.
When you open an account to use or access certain portions of the Site or the Services, you must provide complete and accurate information as requested on the registration form. You will also be asked to provide a user name and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use a third party´s account, user name or password at any time. You agree to notify Legal Inz immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, user name or password. Legal Inz shall not be liable for any losses you incur as a result of someone else´s use of your account or password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by Legal Inz, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and representatives due to someone else´s use of your account or password.

If Legal Inz´s technical staff finds that files or processes belonging to a member pose a threat to the proper technical operation of the system or to the security of other members, Legal Inz reserves the right to delete those files or to stop those processes. If the Legal Inz technical staff suspects a user name is being used by someone who is not authorized by the proper user, Legal Inz may temporarily disable that user´s access in order to preserve system security.

You acknowledge that Legal Inz reserves the right to refuse service to anyone and to cancel user access at any time.
If Legal Inz encounters evidence of suspicious activity in connection with my account, including, but not limited to, evidence that my account is being used by someone who is not authorized to do so, I acknowledge that Legal Inz, in its sole discretion, may opt to temporarily disable my account.
To use Legal Inz services, I must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. I am responsible for providing all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and Internet access. Access to certain Legal Inz services may be limited or delayed based on problems inherent in the use of Internet and electronic communications. I understand that Legal Inz is not responsible for delays, delivery failures, or other damage resulting from such problems.
Legal Inz shall not be considered in breach of or default under these Terms or any contract with me, and shall not be liable to me for any cessation, interruption, or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder by reason of earthquake, flood, fire, storm, lightning, drought, landslide, hurricane, cyclone, typhoon, tornado, natural disaster, act of God or the public enemy, epidemic, famine or plague, action of a court or public authority, change in law, explosion, war, terrorism, armed conflict, labor strike, lockout, boycott or similar event beyond our reasonable control, whether foreseen or unforeseen (each a “Force Majeure Event”). If a Force Majeure Event continues for more than 60 days in the aggregate, Legal Inz may immediately terminate these Terms and shall have no liability to me for or as a result of any such termination.
Legal Retainer Plans (“Legal Plans”)
We reserve the right to accept or refuse membership in our discretion. You may not transfer or assign your Legal Plan or these benefits.
A subscription to a Legal Plan provides the following additional benefits (collectively, the “Plan Benefits”):
Any consultations with Legal Inz or the relevant participating firm appointed by Legal Inz (collectively, the “Firm”), during normal business hours, in relation to corporate or commercial law matters, of up to the number of hours per month for which the legal plan is purchased and paid for by you. The consultations under the Legal Plan shall not include any specialist advice on any of tax, criminal, traffic, employment, banking, insurance, litigation, shipping and intellectual property law related matters.
The following items and matters are specifically excluded from the Legal Plans, and are not to be considered or treated as Plan Benefits:
(i) Any action that directly or indirectly involves Legal Inz or any of its affiliates, directors, agents, or employees;
(ii) Any action that directly or indirectly involves any Firm providing legal services under the Legal Plans; provided, however, that a Firm may, at its sole discretion and risk, represent a Plan Member in a matter in which another affiliated Firm is representing another party as legal counsel;
(iii) For employer-sponsored Legal Plans, any action by a Plan Member of such program that directly or indirectly involves his or her employer sponsor;
(iv) Any adversarial action by a Plan Member that directly or indirectly involves any other Plan Member in any Plan Group;
(v) Any action based on acts or occurrences that are alleged to have occurred or conditions that were reasonably anticipated or foreseeable before the Plan Member´s enrollment that did or may give rise to a lawsuit by or against such Plan Member; provided, however, that the Firm may, in its sole discretion and at its own risk, disregard this exclusion;
(vi) Any action that resulted in the prior recruitment or retention by the Plan Member of another attorney; provided, however, that the Firm may, in its sole discretion and at its sole risk, disregard this exclusion;
(vii) Any matter involving the laws of jurisdictions outside of the United Arab Emirates;
(viii) Any appeal to an appellate court (i.e., not a trial court); provided, however, that the Firm may, in its sole discretion and at its sole risk, disregard this exclusion;
(ix) Any matter that, in the Firm´s opinion, is frivolous in nature or objective; or
(x) Any case matter or requested service that is determined by the Firm to lack sufficient merit to warrant pursuit, or that the Firm decides has been raised an inordinate or unreasonable number of times without a change in circumstances.
The Legal Plans offered through Legal Inz are not contracts of insurance or indemnification insurance plans. Legal Inz is not an insurance company and does not guarantee legal representation in every situation. The Legal Plans provide Legal Inz´s clients with access to free and discounted legal services from member Firms. Legal Inz does not reimburse or indemnify any Plan Member or pay any Firm for lawyer fees or expenses.
You acknowledge that Legal Inz may establish general practices and limits concerning use of its Legal Plans, including without limitation the maximum number of complimentary attorney consultations you may receive in a given period of time related to one or all subjects.
Right to Change Practices.
You acknowledge that Legal Inz reserves the right to change these general practices and limits at any time, in its sole discretion, with or without notice.
Responsibility for Misuse.
You are responsible for all expenses incurred or other actions that may occur through your use of a Legal Plan. You must immediately alert us of any fraudulent, unauthorized, illegal, or suspicious use of a Legal Plan, or any other breach of security or unauthorized or illegal activity that you reasonably suspect.
If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the legal authority to bind such entity to these terms, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority or if you do not agree with these Terms, you may not sign up for or use any Legal Plan. If after your purchase we find that you do not have authority to bind the entity for which you ordered, you will be personally responsible for the obligations in these Terms and the order you placed, including without limitation, the payment obligations. We are not liable for any loss or damage resulting from our reliance on any instruction, notice, document or communication, reasonably believed by us to be genuine and originating from an authorized representative of your company. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document, or communication, we may, but are not obliged to, require additional authentication from you.
Legal Plan Membership Fees.
You will be charged in accordance with the billing terms in effect at the time of your initial purchase. For any Legal Plan you purchase that is charged in full upon purchase, you agree that for each renewal term for such Legal Plan, the amount due for the next term will be due and immediately payable in full as of the first day of that renewed term. For each Legal Plan, your charge remains for each term no matter if you access the Site during that term. In other words, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE LEGAL PLAN BENEFITS, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED.
To allow payment for the initial term of a Legal Plan, valid credit card information is due at the time of purchase.
If you have purchased an automatic renewing plan from Legal Inz, your Legal Plan subscription will renew automatically at the end of the initial term (the “Billing Date”) and at the end of each term thereafter unless and until you give notice of your intention to terminate your Legal Plan subscription pursuant to the terms of these Terms. If you do not give us notice of such intention, your credit card will be charged for the renewal term of your Legal Plan subscription on your Billing Date.
Legal Inz may increase its fees for any Legal Plan subscription effective the first day of a renewal term by giving you notice of the new fees at least thirty (30) days before the beginning of the renewal term. If you do not cancel your subscription pursuant to Section 10, you shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that renewal term and any subsequent renewal terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent renewal term). Reductions in fees become effective on the next renewal term without any pro rata for the period covered under the prior fee schedule.
(i) If payment is not made on the Billing Date, you will have until the one (1) month anniversary of your Billing Date to correct the credit card information on file and post a payment to your account. If after the expiration of this grace period you have not made any payment on your Legal Plan subscription, your non-payment may result in suspension of service and subsequent termination of your Legal Plan subscription.
(ii) Your right to use a Legal Plan subscription is subject to any limits established by Legal Inz or by your credit card issuer. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or your charge is returned for any reason, including through a chargeback, Legal Inz reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to suspend or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating the Legal Plan and all obligations of Legal Inz hereunder. If a charge made to your credit card is declined, Legal Inz may make up to five (5) attempts to bill that card over a thirty (30) day period.
(iii) If you wish to reactivate your account after such termination, there will be no setup or reactivation fees; provided, however, accounts terminated for non-payment will be reactivated only on receipt of the full amount past due and a written request to reinstate the account. When an expired account is reactivated, the new term begins on the date of reactivation.
You will have the right to cancel your Legal Plan subscription by calling us. After such cancellation, your Legal Plan will remain active until the end of then-applicable period.
