Welcome to In The Know Legal, or as we like to sometimes abbreviate it – ITKL.  This is our Terms of Use for the website.  You’ll find the “short and sweet” summary here to the right, but you should still read the whole thing – because we’re going to hold you to it even if you don’t! 

We have the right to update the Terms of Use at any time. When We do, We will post a notification on the main page of our Site, revise the updated date at the top of this page. We encourage Users to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about how We are helping to protect the personal information We collect. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this privacy policy periodically and become aware of modifications.  By continuing to access or use our website after those revisions become effective, You agree to be bound by the revised terms. If You do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the website.

Everything in life eventually changes, and sometimes, so will these Terms. So, check back each time you visit!

All products made available through the Website will be referred to, collectively, as the “Products.” Please read these Terms of Use carefully before ordering any Products from us. You should print a copy of these Terms of Use for future reference. When using the Website, You will be subject to all displayed rules and policies. Such rules and policies are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Use.

 

We offer loads of cool stuff here.  Templates, instructions, videos, freebies like checklists and educational videos or writings. But that’s a long list to type over and over, so from here on, it’s all just “Products.”

By using our Website and by purchasing and/or using our Products You implicitly agree to the following Disclaimers:

7. The inevitable, dreaded “legalese.”  We’ve worked hard to create this site and our products, and it is important to us that we protect it all.  So this section states we aren’t making any warranties or promises about the website, or our products..

Legal Disclaimer.

Our Products and materials are not to be perceived or relied upon in any way as legal advice. The information provided with our Products is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice that can be provided by your own lawyer. We are not giving legal advice in any way. You are hereby advised to consult with your own lawyer for any and all questions and concerns You pertaining to your specific legal situation. You agree that We are not responsible for your earnings, the success or failure of your business decisions, the increase or decrease of your finances or income level, or any other result of any kind that You may have as a result of information presented to You through our Products and Materials.   The use of this Website and/or the Products does not create an attorney-client relationship.

To be clear – we aren’t providing legal advice. So, you cannot and should not rely on anything here as legal advice.  We may be attorneys – but we are not your attorneys.

Technology Disclaimer. 

We try to ensure that the availability and delivery of our Products is uninterrupted and error-free, including our content and communications through methods like our Website, member forum, private Facebook groups, and e-mail communications, or any other materials provided by us to you. However, We cannot guarantee that your access will not be suspended or restricted from time to time, including to allow for repairs, maintenance or updates, although, of course, We will try to limit the frequency and duration of suspension or restriction. To the fullest extent permitted by law, We will be not be liable to You for damages or refunds, or for any other recourse, should our Products become unavailable or access to the them becomes slow or incomplete due to any reason, such as system back-up procedures, internet traffic volume, upgrades, overload of requests to the servers, general network failures or delays, or any other cause which may from time to time make our Products inaccessible to you.

 

We do our best to make sure the website is running like a well-oiled machine, but we all know technology can be a funny fickle thing, so bear with us if there’s a technical hiccup.

Links to Other Websites

We may provide links and pointers to other websites maintained by third parties that may take You outside of our website. These links are provided for your convenience and the inclusion of any link to any other website does not imply our endorsement, sponsorship, or approval of that website or its owner. We do not endorse, and We are not responsible for, the views, opinions, facts, advice, or statements provided by external resources referenced in our Website or its Content, or their accuracy or reliability. We assume no responsibility for errors or omissions caused by other websites that may be included on our website. We have no control over the contents or functionality of those websites and so We accept no responsibility for any loss, damage, or otherwise that may arise from your use of them and therefore We do not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any other website or their content. It is your responsibility to review the terms and conditions and privacy policies of those linked websites to confirm that You understand and agree with those policies.

If we provide links to other websites, we are not responsible for what you find there and you follow those links at your own risk, because we have no control over what is on the other side.

Limitation of Liability

To the fullest extent allowed by law, We will not be held responsible or liable to You in any way for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of the following: DELAYING, REJECTING, OR REMOVING ANY OR ALL CONTENT AT ANY TIME FOR ANY OR NO REASON WHATSOEVER WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU; MODIFYING OR DISCONTINUING TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY, THE WEBSITE (OR ANY PART THEREOF) WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU FOR ANY OR NO REASON WHATSOEVER; IMMEDIATELY TERMINATING YOUR ACCESS TO THE WEBSITE FOR ANY OR NO REASON WHATSOEVER AND WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU; THE ACCURACY, USEFULNESS, OR AVAILABILITY OF ANY INFORMATION POSTED TO OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE; OR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED BY YOU AS A RESULT OF INTERACTIONS YOU HAVE WITH THIRD-PARTIES FOUND ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE.

We don’t expect anything to go wrong, but if it does, we aren’t responsible for any losses, financial or otherwise, that you might suffer.

Release of Claims

In no event will We be liable to any party for any type of direct, indirect, special, incidental, equitable or consequential damages for any use of or reliance on our website, or on those affiliated with us in any way, and You hereby release us from any and all claims; including, without limitation, those related to lost profits, personal or business interruptions, misapplication of information, or any other loss, condition or issue, or otherwise, even if We are expressly advised of the possibility of such damages or difficulties. YOU AGREE NOT TO FILE ANY LAWSUIT OR PROCEEDING INCONSISTENT WITH THE FOREGOING LIABILITY LIMITATIONS.  IF ANY COURT DETERMINES THE LAW OF SUCH A JURISDICTION APPLIES, OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

If You have a dispute with any party who provides advertising or third-party services on or through the Website, or with any party who provides a website linked to on the Website, You release us from any and all claims, demands, and damages (incidental, indirect, punitive, statutory, exemplary, expectation, special, or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute.

No one likes to go to court, so you are agreeing not to file a suit if you have a complaint or loss.  You especially won’t file a claim against us based on an issue you may have with a party on the other side of those links we may provide to other sites – because that just doesn’t make sense!

8. INDEMNIFICATION

You will indemnify and hold us harmless from any and all third-party claims, losses, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), relating to or arising under or out of the relationship between You and us described in these Terms and Conditions, including any breach of the representations and warranties contained herein. You hereby agree that We have the sole right and obligation to control the legal defense against any such claims, demands, or litigation, including the right to select counsel of our choice and to compromise or settle any such claims, demands, or litigation.

In the event of a dispute between us, You agree to not engage in any conduct or communications, public or private, including on social media, designed to disparage us, our Company, or any of our Products.  Where requested by law or arbitration, of course, You are not prohibited from sharing your thoughts and opinions as a part of the legal process.

If any terms of these Terms of Use are construed to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other term which shall be given full force and effect.

8. Not that we think you will, but if you do something with or on our website that lands us in hot water with someone else – you agree to make us whole by repaying us for whatever costs we incur as a result.
