"Customer" refers to the person who asks a question on the Site. "Expert" refers to the person who answers a question on the Site.
3. Electronic Communications and Right to Modify Terms
When you visit SuperiorLawTeam.com or send us e-mails, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on this Site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
SLT, LLC may change, revise or modify any of the Terms at any time by posting them on the Site. Changes shall automatically be effective upon posting; provided, however, that material changes to the Terms will be effective thirty (30) days after notice to User, either via email from email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to your email address on file with SLT,LLC or via other means including but not limited to a pop-up or banner, message or other conspicuous notice on the SLT website. You agree to make any and all necessary arrangements so that you (and not your spam filter) receive all emails from these email addresses.

B. The Website
4. SLT Is a Venue; Third-Party Content
The SLT Site is a venue for informational and educational purposes to allow Customers to ask questions and Experts to answer them. Users of the Site, not SLT, provide the content in Posts (defined below). The Experts determine which questions to answer; Experts are not employees or agents of SLT but are, like Customers, simply Users of the Site.
SLT is not involved in the conversation between Customers and Experts and does not refer Customers to or endorse or recommend particular Experts. You acknowledge that SLT cannot and does not edit, modify, filter, screen, monitor, endorse or guarantee the content of Posts. Accordingly, SLT is not liable for any acts or omissions of Experts, content in Posts, the ability of Experts to answer questions or the ability of Customers to pay for answers. We cannot ensure that a Customer or Expert will complete a transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SLT reserves the right, but is not obligated, to refuse to post or to remove any content.
EMERGENCY QUESTIONS AND CRISIS SITUATIONS (particularly regarding medical or mental health issues) should be directed immediately by telephone or in-person to qualified professionals (e.g. in the U.S., call 911). The Site is not the appropriate venue to deal with such situations.
5. Posts Not Private or Confidential; Anonymity
The Site is an Internet-based forum (akin to a modern version of a radio call-in program) and information submitted in the content of your questions, answers, requests for information, responses, profiles, signatures, qualifications, comments, and posts in the Expert Forum and other places where Users communicate on the Site (collectively "Posts") is not private or confidential and may be read, collected, and used by others. For example, search engines may index your questions, answers, and other Posts to allow them to appear in search engine results (e.g. if someone does a search on google.com, your questions, answers, and other Posts on SuperiorLawTeam.com that relate to the search may appear in the google.com search results list). To better protect your privacy, use an anonymous user name and do not include information regarding your identity or contact information in your Posts.
6. Verification; No Reliance on the Term "Expert"
Every Expert on the Site has had at least one credential relevant to the category in which they are answering questions verified by a third-party verification service, unless the Expert is answering questions in a new category that is still being tested by SLT on its Ask the Team site. Details regarding the credential(s) verified for each Expert can be found by clicking the attorney profile link next to the "Verified" logo associated with each Expert. Other information about an Expert, not shown as verified, has been provided by the Expert but has not been verified. Use of the term "Expert" by SLT and on the Site is only meant to describe Users who answer questions on the Site, and not to guarantee any particular level of expertise of these Experts.
SLT contracts with third-parties to perform the verifications described above; SLT does not itself verify the credentials of the Experts. The results of the verifications are only as accurate as the information provided to and by the third-party verification services, as of the time of the providing of information to and by the third-party verification services. SLT makes efforts to verify, including using a third-party identity verification service, but cannot warrant or guarantee, a User's purported identity; user identification on the Internet is difficult. For these reasons, SLT cannot and does not represent, warrant or guarantee the truthfulness or accuracy of the credentials or identities of and provided by Users including Experts. SLTwill not be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on any information or content contained in Posts.
7. Information Not Advice; No Client-Professional Relationship
Answers on this Site are to be used for general information purposes only, not as a substitute for in-person evaluation or specific professional (medical, legal, veterinary, tax, financial, etc.) advice. The laws, regulations, other governing authorities, standards, practices and procedures that apply to your particular question may differ depending on your location and information typically discovered through in-person evaluations or visits. Experts in some categories may be licensed, certified, educated, employed by or have experience in only particular jurisdictions.
No professional-client relationships shall be formed on the Site.
Communications on this Site are not confidential and shall not be the subject of any associated privileges. Communications on this Site are limited, do not involve in-person evaluations or visits, and do not include safeguards and procedures typical of in-person evaluations and visits.
Suspension or Termination of Service. If you wish to terminate your relationship with this website, you may do so by furnishing us with written notice of your decision. Your notification must be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellations will be effective within 7 business days.
At any time, without notice, for any or no reason, SLT reserves the right to refuse service to anyone
9. Termination of service to a user. SLT has the right to refuse to answer, reply to or correspond with any user it chooses. Refusal to provide services to a user shall not give rise to any legal action toward the client or SLT due to the failure to provide an answer to a question.
10. All Users shall agree to hold harmless SLT its owners, and all others in association with SLT for any action that might arise from use of the website.
D. Legal Statements
Users are responsible for their acts and omissions and content placed on the Site. Because the SLT Site is a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release SLT (and our officers, directors, agents, parents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR."
12. Proprietary Rights of Content
You acknowledge that SLT owns the rights to superiorlawteam.com and the content displayed on the Site other than Posts. Users may not modify, reverse engineer, hack, decompile, disassemble, or attempt to derive the source code of the www.superiorlawteam.com website, or assist any other person or entity in doing so. You acknowledge that all content, including but not limited to text, software, music, sound, photographs, video, graphics or other material contained in listings, sponsor advertisements or email-distributed, commercially produced information presented to you by the Service, by SLT, SLT Users, or SLT Advertisers or other content providers, is protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents or other proprietary rights and laws.

You agree that Posts on the Site, materials, ideas, comments and testimonials you submit on the Site or to the Site administrator or any employee, officer or agent of SLT ("User Content"), will not be considered confidential and may be used by SLT, in its sole discretion, without any obligation to compensate for use of or to return any submitted materials.
You grant to SLT a non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights, including the right to use, reproduce, display, edit, copy, modify, transmit, publicly perform, extract and create derivative works thereof, that you have in your Posts and User Content, in any media now known or not currently known, with respect to any such Posts and other User Content.
13. No Endorsement of Non-SLT Entity; No Relationship with Users
SLT may endeavor to offer to its Users products and services offered by non-SLT entities. Placement of information, logos, links or names of such non-SLT entities on the Site does not constitute an endorsement or warranty of these entities, their products or services. You take full responsibility for a decision to visit or patronize any such entity and hold SLT harmless from any liability arising from such actions. You further acknowledge that no relationship (such as partnership, agent, joint venturer, or employee) is created between you and SLT or between any User (including Customers and Experts) and SLT by formation of this Agreement (or any of the Related Agreements) or by your participation on the Site. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE USER TO EVALUATE THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS AND USEFULNESS OF ANY OPINION, ANSWER OR OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, FROM THIRD PARTIES OR OBTAINED FROM A LINKED SITE. PLEASE SEEK THE ADVICE OF PROFESSIONALS, AS APPROPRIATE, REGARDING THE EVALUATION OF ANY SPECIFIC OPINION, ANSWER, PRODUCT, SERVICE, OR OTHER CONTENT.
14. Information Control and Storage
We do not control the information provided by Users, which you may find to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution and common sense when using the Site. There are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. Additionally, there may be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals. By using this Site, you agree to accept such risks and that SLT is not responsible for the acts or omissions of Users on the Site.
The amount of storage space per User is currently limited. You agree that SLT is not responsible or liable for the deletion or failure to store content and/or other information.

CHOICE OF LAW. The Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
DISPUTES; DISPUTE RESOLUTION. All disputes, claims and controversies, of any sort or nature, between us, arising out of the use of the Site ("Dispute"), shall be resolved solely pursuant to the following procedure: (1) notification to the other party of the facts of the Dispute, the legal basis for the Dispute, and all damages claimed, in writing delivered to (a) the User's email address on file with SLT, or (b) SLT, LLC., 4355 MacArthur Blvd #222 Newport Beach, CA 92660 or email@example.com, whichever is applicable ("Dispute Notification"); (2) allowance of thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to receive a response to and/or offer to remedy the Dispute; (3) if the Dispute remains unresolved within those thirty (30) days, the filing of a Request for Online Mediation for Small Claims with the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") (or Request for Mediation for the minimum of 4 hours only if the Small Claims limit is exceeded), available online at http://www.aaamediation.com/, with good faith efforts being made to resolve the Dispute during mediation, and the cost of the mediation being born equally by the parties, which cost is currently set at US$50 but may be changed by AAA; (4) if the mediation does not resolve the Dispute, submission of a Demand for Arbitration with the AAA, see http://www.adr.org/fileacase, in which case the Dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration (by telephone, online and/or solely based on written submissions as chosen by the party initiating the arbitration, as allowed by the AAA Rules and unless otherwise agreed by the parties), with the cost of the arbitration to be born equally by the parties, unless otherwise ordered by the arbitrator(s), and with the decision of the arbitrator(s) to be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
IMPROPERLY SUBMITTED CLAIM. All Disputes must be resolved as set forth above. Disputes filed in a different manner shall be considered improperly filed, and shall entitle SLT to attorneys’ fees and costs up to US$1000, provided that SLT has notified you in writing (at the email address on file with SLT will suffice) of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to withdraw the claim promptly.
NO CLASS CLAIMS; WAIVER. The parties expressly agree that there shall be no class claims, consolidation or joinder allowed in any dispute between the parties, and that no claim may be made through an action purporting to represent a class of Site users or otherwise asserting claims on behalf of a class ("Waiver"). In the event this Waiver is found to be unenforceable, step (4) of the Dispute resolution process, requiring arbitration, shall be voided in its entirety, and the parties may file a complaint in the courts located in San Francisco County, California courts and agree to waive any and all jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections.
20. Agreement; Assignment; Miscellaneous
You agree that SLT may assign the Terms to any other entity of its choosing, with or without notice to you. You may not assign the Terms to any other party for many reasons, including but not limited to because your interaction with other users of the Site the pricing offered, and fraud mechanisms in place, are based upon individual usage. SLT shall not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies unless such waiver is in writing and signed by SLT. No delay or omission on the part of SLT in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies on future occasions. The section titles in the Terms are solely used for the convenience of the parties and have no legal or contractual significance.
