By using Addio’s Site and Services, you acknowledge (i) that you are at least 18 years of age and legally able to enter into a contract; and (ii) that you agree to follow and be bound by these Terms of Service, as well as all applicable laws and regulations. Please do not use this website if you do not agree with these Terms of Service. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.
As further explained in Section 10, by agreeing to these Terms of Service you agree that any dispute arising from the use of Addio Materials and Services will be decided in binding Arbitration, in accordance with the terms and conditions provided below. In no case will disputes be decided by any court, jury trials, or class action, other than the Arbitration tribunal hereby indicated in these Terms of Service, unless one of the exceptions apply.
The following meanings shall apply in these Terms of Service: “Site” refers to www.ouraddio.com and any other website made available by Addio. “Services” refers to the Site and all services, self-help documents, information, forms and templates provided by Addio. “Addio” refers to Vortex Web Solutions, LLC (the owner and operator of www.ouraddio.com) and our affiliates (including Vortex Web Solutions, LLC officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and representatives). “You” and “your” refer to each customer, visitor or user of any Services. If you access or use the Services on behalf of a company, organization or other entity, or on behalf of another person, then (i) the terms “you” and “your” will also refer to that entity or person; (ii) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of that entity or person, with authority to bind the entity or person to these Terms of Service; and (iii) you agree to these Terms of Service on that entity or person’s behalf.
ADDIO IS NOT A LAW FIRM, INVESTMENT ADVISORY FIRM, OR AN ACCOUNTING FIRM, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY LEGAL, TAX OR ACCOUNTING ADVICE. ADDIO PROVIDES ACCESS TO SOFTWARE AND SELF-HELP MATERIALS. ALTHOUGH ADDIO STRIVES TO ENSURE THAT ITS AUTOMATED SERVICES ARE COMPLETE AND UP-TO-DATE, THEY ARE MEANT PURELY AS SELF-HELP FORMS. THE SERVICES ARE NOT SUBSTITUTES FOR THE ADVICE OF AN ATTORNEY, INVESTMENT ADVISOR OR ACCOUNTANT. NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP, OR OTHER SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP, IS CREATED BETWEEN YOU AND ADDIO OR ITS PARTNERS THROUGH THE USE OF ADDIO. ANY AND ALL COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN YOU AND ADDIO ARE PROTECTED BY OUR PRIVACY NOTICE BUT NOT BY ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE OR AS ATTORNEY WORK-PRODUCT. YOU SHOULD CONSULT YOUR OWN TAX, LEGAL AND ACCOUNTING ADVISORS BEFORE ENGAGING IN ANY TRANSACTION.
Addio will not provide clarifications, advice, orientation, or opinions about the potential legal or tax issues, or other consequences arising from the execution of self-help documents and other materials made available through the Site (the “Materials”), or solutions for issues you may encounter in attempting to use the Materials. Addio will not review any part of your Materials for completeness, spelling, or internal consistency of identifiers (such as names and addresses). Likewise, Addio will not provide clarifications, advice, or opinions regarding your particular situation, or apply any legal, tax or accounting expertise tailored to your situation. Addio provides general information that is found in statutes and case law, which are fully available to the public. You acknowledge that such information will never be specific to a particular user’s situation or request and that Addio therefore does not engage in the practice of law or in the business of a law firm.
Addio strives to keep all Materials available through the Services – including any descriptions, information and other help resources – current and up-to-date. This, however, is not the same as personalized legal, tax or accounting advice. Furthermore, the law changes rapidly, varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and may be subject to varying interpretation by different courts. Therefore, if you want help understanding how the law applies to your particular circumstances or deciding which estate planning documents are best for you and your family, you should consider seeing a qualified attorney, investment advisor or accountant. Similarly, if you need legal advice for a specific problem, or if your specific circumstances are too complex to be addressed by our Services, you should consult a licensed attorney in the applicable jurisdiction.
The materials on the Site are provided “as is.” Addio and its partners make no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaim and negate all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Any documents you make using the Services are yours, and it is your responsibility to be sure they reflect your intentions and are binding under applicable law. Further, neither Addio nor its partners warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on the Site or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to the Site.
By using its Services, Addio grants you a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not:
This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these Terms of Service and may be terminated by Addio at any time.
Furthermore, your use of the Services may require you to enter personal, confidential or proprietary information concerning a third party. You represent and warrant that you have (i) obtained all rights and permissions from any third party necessary to use the Services and to grant the rights to Addio to use such information in providing the Services; and (ii) that your use of any third party personal, confidential, or proprietary information does not and will not violate any privacy rights, intellectual property rights or any other rights of any third party.
In no event, and to the maximum extent authorized by law, shall Addio, the organizations it partners with, or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, direct, punitive, incidental or consequential damages, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the Materials on the Site, even if Addio or a Addio authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Furthermore, because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential, punitive, or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.
The Materials appearing on Addio’s Site could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. Addio does not warrant that any of the materials on www.ouraddio.com are accurate, complete, current, or comply with the laws of your local jurisdiction. Addio may make changes to the Materials contained on www.ouraddio.com at any time without notice. Addio does not, however, make any commitment to update the Materials.
Addio has not reviewed all of the websites linked to its Site and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Addio of the website to which the link leads. Use of any such linked website is at the user’s own risk.
Addio may revise these Terms of Service at any time without prior notice to you. Any changes to these Terms of Service will be reflected on this page and will become effective immediately upon posting. If we make significant changes to these Terms of Service, we will notify you of the changes, either by putting up a banner on Addio’s Site or, if you are a registered user, by email. By continuing to use Addio, you are agreeing to be bound by the then-current version of these Terms of Service. Please check the last updated date at the top of these Terms of Service to determine if there have been any changes since you have last reviewed these Terms of Service.
Addio may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business-related purposes, to you via email notice or through conspicuous posting on the Site, as determined by Addio in our sole discretion. Addio shall not be responsible for any automatic filtering that you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us.
Please carefully read this part of the Terms of Service. It contains important information about how disputes, claims, and controversies in relation to the use of Addio’s Services shall be resolved. If you don’t understand the meaning or extent of this provision, you should seek the opinion of independent counsel.
It is our goal to resolve through negotiation any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of Addio’s Services. In case we fail to reach a resolution of the dispute, claim or controversy, you and Addio agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth below (the “Arbitration Agreement”).
Arbitration is a much less formal dispute resolution process in which no judge or juries will adjudicate or find the facts in dispute. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator to give the final decision (technically called an “award”), has a much simpler discovery process, and is subject to very limited review by the courts. Additionally, arbitration awards are normally not appealable, and, therefore, it is normally a faster and less expensive method of dispute resolution.
Any claim, dispute, or controversy relating to your use of Addio’s Site shall be governed by the Arbitration Agreement discussed in Section 9 above. If a judicial proceeding is commenced, the claim, dispute, or controversy shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Addio agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts is excluded and not applicable to this relation.
You specifically consent to personal jurisdiction in California in connection with any dispute between you and Addio arising out of these Terms of Service or pertaining to Addio’s Site. You agree that the exclusive venue for any dispute between the parties will be in the state and federal courts in California.
Consumer satisfaction is very important to Addio. If you are unsatisfied with any part of your experience using Addio, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All payments to Addio for subscriptions are non-refundable. All subscriptions/payments are auto-renewed every month (or every year if subscribed to an annual subscription) until canceled by You.
