Instead you are representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake, including any legal matter relating in any manner to your use of the Services. Neither SoloSuit nor the Services are intended to provide legal advice.
- You are solely responsible and liable for any and all legal decisions you make regardless of whether you use the Services to assist you in making such decisions.

- User Accounts and Account Security
You will need to register for an account to access some or all of our Services. You agree to provide accurate account information and promptly update this information if it changes. You also agree to maintain the security of your credentials and account and promptly notify us if you discover or suspect that someone has accessed your account without your authorization. Your username and password are personal to you and may not be shared with any third parties. You are responsible for all activities that occur regarding your credentials or otherwise under your account.
If you prepare an Answer using the Services, the following terms and conditions apply:
- Any documents provided by SoloSuit or used by SoloSuit in connection with the Services (including the Answer) are not a substitute for the advice or services of an attorney. You authorize us to create your Answer via the Services using the information you provide via the Services. We will create your Answer; however, you agree that you are solely responsible for (a) the information you provide, (b) reviewing the Answer, and (c) ensuring you agree with the Answer before you sign it. You agree that you are also solely responsible for independently determining whether the Answer and filing instructions provided by SoloSuit comply with the laws, regulations and rules of your applicable jurisdiction.
- The requirements for preparing an Answer vary depending on local, state and federal laws, regulations, and the court’s interpretation in your jurisdiction. We cannot guarantee that all of the information provided by SoloSuit is completely current or correct. Because of changes in the law, variations between and within jurisdictions, and different interpretations of the law, you should consult with a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction regarding the applicability of the Services or the Answer prepared by SoloSuit to your particular circumstances.
- You also agree to the following legal disclaimer:
- SoloSuit is an online provider of legal “fill in the blank” forms and general legal information. SoloSuit is not a law firm and we do not provide legal advice or represent you in any way.
- By using this app or our legal forms, you are not accessing attorney services or legal advice. SoloSuit's services, including our app, our legal forms, and any legal information we provide, are not a substitute for the advice of an attorney.
- By using this app or our legal forms, you are not establishing an attorney-client relationship with SoloSuit or any of its employees, or with any attorney. Any information you provide us is not protected by attorney-client privilege or as work product.
- In accessing this app, the user assumes responsibility to provide correct and up-to-date information. Inaccuracies in information provided could affect the validity or enforceability of the documents generated by the app. You will read any and all SoloSuit documents prior to signing them. You take sole responsibility for the accuracy of your personal information contained in SoloSuit documents that you sign.
- Each person’s legal situation is different and complex situations may require legal advice and representation. It is not possible for the app to identify all situations in which legal representation is recommended, necessary or desirable. We do not review your documents or any information you input for accuracy or legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation.
- Each user has the obligation to make his or her own determination as to whether to seek the advice of a lawyer. SoloSuit recommends that all users consider reviewing their answer with an attorney.
- Different states have different rules that may affect the enforceability or validity of answers, and each state’s laws may change over time. SoloSuit cannot ensure that the documents generated through use of the app will be enforceable or valid in all states or in every instance. Each user assumes the responsibility to seek legal review of their answer.
- Certain answers will not be valid or enforceable unless you follow detailed and specific steps to properly execute the documents. Failure to precisely follow directions may result in invalid or unenforceable answers. If you have any questions you should seek the advice of an attorney.
- Third Party Services and Products
The Services may contain links to third party websites and materials and we may make recommendations or send you offers for certain third party services, products and materials that we think may be interesting to you based on information provided by you (e.g. we may recommend financial planning services for you based on your specific preferences). However, these links, recommendations and offers are provided as a convenience and we are not liable for any websites, products, services, materials or information made available by any third party. If you choose to purchase any third party products or services, you are solely responsible for your purchasing decisions and if you choose to visit any third party websites, you may be subject to additional or different terms and conditions and privacy policies.
- Account Information
You may sync third party accounts with the Services in order to permit SoloSuit to retrieve your information that is maintained online by such third parties (“Account Information”). By using the Services, you authorize SoloSuit to access your Account Information, on your behalf as your agent, and you authorize such third parties to disclose your information to us. When you provide Account Information through the Services, you will be directly connected to the website for the third party you have identified. SoloSuit will submit information including usernames and passwords that you provide to log into the Services. You hereby authorize and permit SoloSuit to use information submitted by you to accomplish the foregoing and to configure the Services so that they are compatible with the third party sites for which you submit your information. Solely to provide the Account Information to you as part of the Services, you grant SoloSuit a limited power of attorney, and appoint SoloSuit as your attorney-in-fact and agent, to access third party sites, retrieve and use your information with the full power and authority to do and perform each thing necessary in connection with such activities, as you could do in person. You acknowledge and agree that when SoloSuit is accessing and retrieving Account Information from third party sites, SoloSuit is acting as your agent, and not as the agent of or on behalf of the third party that operates the third party site.

By creating a SoloSuit account, you consent to receive communications from SoloSuit (e.g., via telephone, email, and other electronic communications, or by posting notices to the website).

You consent to being provided with any notices, disclosures, information, and other materials in electronic form (collectively "Electronic Records"), rather than in paper form in accordance with The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act ("E-Sign"). Your consent to receive Electronic Records applies to all notices, disclosures, documents, records or other materials of any kind that SoloSuit may be required to provide to you. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You further understand that checking a box, clicking “accept” (or similar word) on our website, or responding via telephone keypress constitutes your signature.

If you have any trouble printing out, downloading, and/or accessing any Electronic Records, you may contact us at (https://solosuit.com/support) In order for you to access and retain Electronic Records sent by SoloSuit, you must have the following hardware and software: a computer capable of reading html and text files, a modem or other means of accessing the Internet, and a browser capable of accessing and displaying the SoloSuit website. To print the Electronic Records, you will also need a printer. You may withdraw your consent by contacting us at (https://solosuit.com/support). However, the services provided by SoloSuit are only available if you agree to receive Electronic Records, and you understand that withdrawing such consent may result in your account being closed.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless SoloSuit, each of our subsidiaries and affiliates, or our licensors and Partners and each of our respective officers, directors, agents, partners and employees (individually and collectively, the “SoloSuit Parties”) from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, fines and any related expenses or costs ("Claims") arising out of or related to (a) your access to or use of our Services; (b) your User Content or Feedback; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation, misappropriation or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights); (e) your conduct in connection with our Services; or (f) any violation by you of any federal, state, or local laws, statutes, rules, or regulations.

You also agree that the SoloSuit Parties will have control of the defense or settlement of any third party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and SoloSuit or the other SoloSuit Parties.
- We do not control, endorse or take responsibility for any User Content, third-party content available on or linked to our Services or products or services offered by a third party that are advertised through the Services (including any Insurance Policies).
- Your use of our Services is at your sole risk. Our Services are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In addition, SoloSuit does not represent or warrant that our Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. While SoloSuit attempts to make your access to and use of our Services safe, we cannot and do not represent or warrant that our Services or servers are free of viruses or other harmful components. You assume the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Services. Additionally, you acknowledge that information you store or transfer through our Services may become irretrievably lost or corrupted or temporarily unavailable due to a variety of causes, including software failures, protocol changes by third party providers, internet outages, force majeure events or other disasters, scheduled or unscheduled maintenance, or other causes either within or outside our control. You are solely responsible for backing up and maintaining duplicate copies of any information you store or transfer through our Services.
- To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, SoloSuit and the other SoloSuit Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if SoloSuit or the other SoloSuit Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
- The total liability of SoloSuit and the other SoloSuit Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of the amount paid, if any, by you to access or use our Services, or, if you have not paid any amounts for the use of any Services, the amount of $100.
- The limitations set forth in this Section (a) will apply even if the remedies otherwise provided under these Terms, at law or in equity, fail of their essential purpose, and regardless of the form or cause of action or the alleged basis of the claim, and (b) will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of SoloSuit or the other SoloSuit Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release SoloSuit and the other SoloSuit Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. You expressly waive any rights you may have under any statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.
- Transfer and Processing Data
By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information about you in and to the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
- Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with SoloSuit and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
- Except for small claims disputes in which you or SoloSuit seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or SoloSuit seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and SoloSuit waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Salt Lake City,, Utah in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
- You and SoloSuit agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and SoloSuit and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
- You and SoloSuit agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 21 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and SoloSuit agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and SoloSuit will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by SoloSuit, SoloSuit will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and SoloSuit agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Washington and the United States sitting in Seattle, Washington have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
- Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and SoloSuit will not have the right to assert the claim.
- You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 21 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 22.
- Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Utah, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Washington or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Utah and the United States, respectively, sitting in Salt Lake City, Utah.
- Changes to these Terms
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will provide you notice by posting the amended Terms to our Services and updating the “Last Updated” date above. We may also attempt to notify you by sending an email notification to the address associated with your account or by providing notice through our Services. Unless we say otherwise in our notice of changes, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop accessing and using our Services.
We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use our Services at any time. Without limiting the foregoing, we may, in our sole discretion and without liability to you, with or without prior notice and at any time, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any portion of our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
- Export Compliance
The Services are only intended for use by persons located in the United States. If you choose to access the Services from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and you are responsible for compliance with all local laws. Additionally, all or part of our Services may be subject to U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws (“Export Controls”). You agree to abide by all Export Controls as they relate to your access and use of our Services.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and SoloSuit relating to your access to and use of our Services. The failure of SoloSuit to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
