DISCLAIMERS

YOUR USE OF THIS SITE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE SITE IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO RESTRICT OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS TO THE SITE OR ANY FEATURE OR PART THEREOF AT ANY TIME. TLO EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND ANY WARRANTIES THAT MATERIALS ON THE SITE ARE NONINFRINGING, AS WELL AS WARRANTIES IMPLIED FROM A COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR COURSE OF DEALING; THAT ACCESS TO THE SITE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE; THAT THE SITE WILL BE SECURE; THAT THE SITE OR THE SERVER THAT MAKES THE SITE AVAILABLE WILL BE VIRUS-FREE; OR THAT INFORMATION ON THE SITE WILL BE COMPLETE, ACCURATE OR TIMELY. IF YOU DOWNLOAD ANY MATERIALS FROM THIS SITE, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK. YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF ANY SUCH MATERIALS. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM TLO OR THROUGH OR FROM THE SITE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. TLO DOES NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE OF THE MATERIALS ON THIS SITE IN TERMS OF THEIR COMPLETENESS, CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, ADEQUACY, USEFULNESS, TIMELINESS, RELIABILITY OR OTHERWISE.

IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS, THE LAW MAY NOT PERMIT THE DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR USE OF THE SITE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY INFORMATION YOU SEND OR RECEIVE DURING YOUR USE OF THE SITE MAY NOT BE SECURE AND MAY BE INTERCEPTED BY UNAUTHORIZED PARTIES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT THE SITE IS MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU AT NO CHARGE. RECOGNIZING SUCH, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER TLO NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR THIRD PARTY CONTENT PROVIDERS WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE SITE, OR ANY OTHER SITE YOU ACCESS THROUGH A LINK FROM THIS SITE OR FROM ANY ACTIONS WE TAKE OR FAIL TO TAKE AS A RESULT OF COMMUNICATIONS YOU SEND TO US, OR THE DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, OR FOR ANY INFORMATION, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ADVERTISED IN OR OBTAINED THROUGH THE SITE, AS REMOVAL OR DELETION OF ANY MATERIALS SUBMITTED OR POSTED ON ITS SITE, OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THE SITE, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF TLO, ITS AFFILIATES OR ANY OF ITS SUPPLIERS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.

YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY OF THE ABOVE CLAIMS OR ANY DISPUTE WITH TLO IS TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SITE. YOU AND TLO AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE MUST COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES OR THE CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, ALL OR A PORTION OF THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless TLO and its affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, service providers, subcontractors and suppliers from and against any and all losses, liabilities, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs, arising or resulting from your use of the site and any violation of these Terms of Use. If you cause a technical disruption of the site or the systems transmitting the site to you or others, you agree to be responsible for any and all losses, liabilities, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs, arising or resulting from that disruption. TLO reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with TLO in the defense of such matter.

Privacy Policy

TLO is committed to protecting the privacy of your information. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, store and use information from and about users of the website you are on now (the "Site") and any services or products available via the Site ("Services"). This Privacy Policy is subject to the Terms of Use set forth above. By using our Site or Services, you expressly consent to TLO's collection, storage, use and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you disagree with anything in this privacy policy, you may not use the Site or the Services.

You may choose to provide personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number and email address) on this website. Here are some of the ways you may provide the information and the types of information you may submit. We also tell you how we may use the information.

If you email us through the form on our “Contact Us” page on this site, we ask you for information such as your name, email address and telephone so we can respond to your questions and comments. You may choose to provide additional information as well.

On SchoolKidsLawyer.com, we provide our phone number, our email address and a postal address (and other contact methods) so visitors can interact with us. If you email us, please be aware that you will be providing us with your email address and any other information you include in your email.

You can send certain content from our site to your friends. To do so, we ask you to provide your name and your friend’s email address to us. We use this information to send the content to your friend.

We collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit this website. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited our site and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors. We collect this information either through “cookie” technology or through our host provider as explained below.

Like many companies, we use browser cookies on this website. Browser cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We use browser cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Browser cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new browser cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. Remember though, without browser cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features.

Our host provider, the company that provides TLO with domain name and hosting services for this website, provides services that allow us to track visits to our site. This information contains certain non-personal information (we don't know who is visiting our site) such as IP addresses of visitors, how long they were on the site, how many page visits they made, and other visit information and provides TLO with statistics on such usage. Again, this information is collected and used to determine how to improve our site and which portions of our site appear to be the most useful to our visitors.

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information about our website visitors. Since our business was started by lawyers and we operate in the legal field, we understand the confidential (and, in some cases, privileged) nature of such information and communications. Therefore, we have a strict policy against disseminating any of this information outside of TLO. We will only share information with other providers with your express permission to do so and what information may be shared.

We provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. These sites may have their own privacy statements in place, which we recommend you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of linked sites or any use of the sites and we make no representations as to the information provided on such linked sites. Thus, they are provided to our visitors on an "as is" basis.

This website is not directed to children under the age of eighteen (18) and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of eighteen (18) on the site. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personal information from a visitor under the age of eighteen (18) on the site, we will delete the information from our records.

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the personal information you provide on this website. We use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to help keep the personal information you provide on this site secure.

This Privacy Statement may be updated periodically and without prior notice to you to reflect changes in our online information practices. We will post a prominent notice on this website to notify you of any significant changes to our Privacy Statement and indicate at the top of the statement when it was most recently updated.

Jurisdiction and Applicable Law

The laws of the State of New Jersey govern these Terms of Use and your use of the site, and you irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of the state courts of New Jersey for any action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use. We recognize that it is possible for you to obtain access to this site from any jurisdiction in the world, but we have no practical ability to prevent such access. This site has been designed to comply with the laws of the State of New Jersey and of the United States. If any material on this site, or your use of the site, is contrary to the laws of the place where you are when you access it, the site is not intended for you, and we ask you not to use the site. You are responsible for informing yourself of the laws of your jurisdiction and complying with them.

Changes to These Terms of Use

TLO reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add or remove any portion of these Terms of Use, in whole or in part, at any time, by posting revised terms on the site. It is your responsibility to check periodically for any changes we make to the Terms of Use. Your continued use of the site after any changes to the Terms of Use or other policies means you accept the changes.

Entire Agreement and Admissibility

This agreement and any policies or operating rules posted on this site constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and TLO with respect to the subject matter thereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between the parties with respect to such subject matter. A printed version of these Terms of Use shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based on or relating to use of the site to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Further you agree that the laws relating to contra preferendum, or interpretation against the drafter, shall not apply and that any terms determined to be ambiguous, if any, shall not automatically be interpreted against TLO.

Severability

If any provision of this agreement is unlawful, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the agreement will remain in place.
