Please read these Terms of Service ("Terms", "Terms of Service") carefully before using the https://legally.co website (the "Service") operated by Legally Co., a Delaware limited liability corporation, ("us", "we", or "our").
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.

About the Legally Co Service
Legally Co. is not a law firm and can not provide any legal advice, legal opinions, recommendations, referrals, or counseling. As Legally Co is not a law firm, there is no attorney-client relationship formed between you and Legally Co by use of this site. You agree that any legal information presented on the site is not legal advice, but is provided merely for your education, and that you will seek competent legal advice from a licensed attorney in the appropriate jurisdiction before taking action.
Legally Co is a software service that helps streamline researching, filing, tracking, and organization of routine legal and regulatory filings most businesses commonly need. Besides offering software services, Legally Co offers features that allow you to hire independent lawyers, law firms, and non-law firm service providers from within the service. However, you understand that you are under no obligation to use these lawyers, law firms, and non-law firm service providers to use the service.
Services Offered By Independent Law Firms and Lawyers
Where legal services are offered, such services are provided by independent law firms and lawyers who advertise on this site and/or pay for access to our platform to streamline their law practice and improve efficiencies in docketing, client onboarding, client acquisition, client communication, and collection of payments for services rendered (hereinafter “Advertiser/Consultants.”)
Legally Co is not a legal referral service and Legally Co does not select or endorse the use of any Advertiser/Consultant, but does take commercially reasonable steps to verify that Advertiser/Consultants are licensed attorneys.
Advertiser/Consultants specify the terms, scope, limitations, and conditions of their representation of you and may decline representation of your matter according their own preference, professional judgment, and/or for reasons mandated by regulations regarding professional conduct. The precise terms of the Advertiser/Consultant agreements with you can be reviewed prior to submitting payment by reviewing the content at the “I have read the terms of service and agree” link provided with each service offering. Legally Co is not a party to these agreements and contracts and they are solely between you and the independent Advertiser/Consultant.
All legal fees are paid to Advertiser/Consultants as Legally Co does not provide or charge for legal services. Legally Co may charge a transaction fee in exchange for services rendered to Advertiser/Consultants.
Services Offered By Independent Entities that are not Law Firms or Lawyers
Company formation, regulatory compliance, and business license research services are provided by independent entities that are not law firms or lawyers, though their services may have been designed by law firms or lawyers. These services are not provided by Legally Co and are available for purchase within the service solely for your convenience. These independent entities provide a portion of the revenue to Legally Co in exchange for the publication of their offerings within our service.
When engaging these service providers, you agree that you have researched and understand that such services may not adequately address your complex needs in all cases and that such services are no substitute for the advice provided by experienced attorneys, tax planners, and accountants. The precise terms of the agreements between you and these independent entities can be reviewed prior to submitting payment by reviewing the content at the “I have read the terms of service and agree” link provided with each service offering. Legally Co is not a party to these agreements and contracts and they are solely between you and the independent entity specified in the agreement.
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Service ("Purchase"), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected.
All fees and charges are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods for subscription products.
Advertiser/Consultant attorneys and law firms may refund all or a portion of legal and government filing fees at their discretion, as fairness dictates.
Non-law firm independent entities may also refund all or a portion of legal and government filing fees at their discretion, as fairness dictates.

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you.
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Delaware, United States, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding the Service.
Agreement for Binding Arbitration
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Dover, Delaware, USA, before three arbitrators.
The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules or pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Legally Co are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement. YOU AND LEGALLY CO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and the Legally Co agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
By continuing to access or use our Service after any revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you are no longer authorized to use the Service.
