In particular you agree that:

EXISTING CLIENTS OF CLARA PARTNERS

If you are an existing client of Clara Partners, in using Clara you agree to the changes to these terms and to our engagement outlined in this paragraph. The content on our site is not legal or tax advice and you waive any right to claim any content represents legal services or advice. You are using Clara at your own risk and doing so is no substitute for obtaining legal advice from us.

 

USING THE AUTOMATED DOCUMENTS ON CLARA

When using the forms (Forms) to generate documents (Documents), you are not receiving legal or tax advice, and it is not intended to replace the need for professional advice. The Forms, and any directions or explanatory notes in them, and the Documents are only examples and are not personalised for you or your business. Generally, a Document will need to be changed to address your situation. We recommend you get help from a qualified lawyer or other legal services provider before using any Document.

The Documents are based on the laws of England and Wales. The laws of your jurisdiction may have different requirements. You must obtain professional or specialist advice to decide what the suitable documents are for your situation. We make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that the Documents are suitable for use in other jurisdictions or that the Documents comply with the laws of any other jurisdiction. You must ensure your access to, and use of, the Documents complies with any applicable local laws in your jurisdiction.

You may use the Documents for your own personal business use in the following manner:

  • If you are not a lawyer or other legal services provider, you may use the Documents to record transactions between you and other parties. You may also provide the Documents to your own legal services provider to receive legal advice on them if you inform your legal services provider that each Document has been generated using Clara and provide them with a copy of these terms of use. You must ensure your legal services provider uses the Documents in accordance with these terms of use.
  • If you are a lawyer or legal services provider, you may use the Documents to provide legal advice to your clients for their own personal business use (including documenting transactions between your client and other parties).

You may view, change, or copy a Document, and make that Document available to other parties in compliance with these terms of use.  If you change a Document, you must remove all Clara branding and notices from it.

You must not use any part of the Documents for commercial purposes (including charging a fee to use the Documents) without obtaining a licence to do so from us.

You must not use them for any other purpose without our prior written permission.  You must not modify, copy, reverse engineer or otherwise misuse any Form or Document.

You must examine a Document thoroughly before using it.
