Third Party Services
Your Responsibility When Using Nolo's Living Trust
This Program is not a substitute for legal advice from an attorney. This Program may help you create useful legal documents. However, general information is never a substitute for personalized advice from a knowledgeable lawyer. 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, consult an attorney licensed to practice in your state. Any documents you make using the Program are yours, and it is your responsibility to be sure they reflect your intentions and are binding under law. You acknowledge and agree that Nolo is not acting as your attorney, agent, or fiduciary and no confidential or privileged relationship is formed through the use of the Program.
Any information you enter into the Program will appear exactly as entered by you in any documents prepared through the Program. You are solely responsible for providing current, accurate, complete, and adequate information and verifying the currency, accuracy, completeness, and adequacy of any information provided through the Program. Nolo does not and will not verify or correct any information provided by you through the Program.
The Program may require you to enter personal, confidential, or proprietary information of a third party. You represent and warrant that (i) you have obtained all rights, licenses, consents, or other permissions from any third party necessary to use the Program and to grant the rights to Nolo to use such information in the Program; and (ii) your use of any third-party personal, confidential, or proprietary information does not and will not violate any privacy, intellectual property, or any other rights of any third party.
Limitation of Liability and Damages
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NOLO AND ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS, PARTNERS, AFFILIATES, AND REPRESENTATIVES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, AND THE LIKE), WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF NOLO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF NOLO AND ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, LICENSORS, PARTNERS, AFFILIATES, AND REPRESENTATIVES' TO YOU FOR ACTUAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE PROGRAM. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION AND/OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Nolo and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and their respective shareholders, officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, judgments, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees) arising out of or related to (i) your use or misuse of the Program, and (ii) a breach of your representations, warranties, or obligations hereunder.

You may terminate this Agreement at any time by ceasing use of the Program and deleting the Program, together with all copies and modifications in any form, and destroying the media or deleting the download file. Nolo shall have the right to change or add to the terms of this Agreement at any time, and to change, discontinue, or impose conditions on any aspect or feature of the Program. Any such change will be effective upon notification to you by any means reasonable to give you actual or constructive notice, including by posting such terms in the Program itself, and your continued use of the Program will indicate your agreement to any such change. This Agreement will immediately terminate upon your breach of this Agreement without any further action required by Nolo and you must cease all use of, and delete from your computer, the Program, help file, legal manual, and any accompanying documentation immediately upon termination of this Agreement.
If you provide any ideas, feedback, suggestions, materials, information, opinions, or other input to Nolo regarding the Program or otherwise ("Feedback"), Nolo has no obligation to review, consider, or implement your Feedback, and all Feedback is made on a non-confidential basis. You hereby grant to Nolo and its successors and assigns a worldwide, unconditional, unlimited, perpetual right and license to use, reproduce, modify, exploit, publish, display, distribute, and disclose such Feedback by any means or in any manner, without any compensation or attribution to you, and you hereby waive and agree not to assert any "moral rights" or any other intellectual property rights you may have in the Feedback.

By using the program, you agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between you and Nolo regarding the Program. However, this agreement does not limit any rights that Nolo may have under trade secret, copyright, patent, trademark, or other intellectual property laws. If any provision of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then such provision shall first be revised, limited, or amended, consistent with the general intent of the provision, such that it is valid and enforceable, and any remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. No delay or failure on the part of Nolo to exercise any of its rights under the agreement, or under law, shall be construed as a waiver of those rights. A waiver shall not be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the party against whom the waiver is being enforced. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply in interpreting this Agreement. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party. All rights and remedies provided in this Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies that may be available to the parties, whether provided under this Agreement or which may now or subsequently exist in law, in equity, by statute, or otherwise. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to the principles of conflict of laws. Each of the parties irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the federal and state courts located in the County of Los Angeles, State of California for any action arising under this Agreement. The aforementioned choice of venue is intended by the parties to be mandatory, and not permissive, in nature. The rights and obligations under this Agreement are personal to you and may not be assigned or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part, without Nolo's prior written consent. Any attempt to do so will be void and of no effect. The provisions of this Agreement that by their context are intended to survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the Ownership, Copy, Use and Transfer Restrictions, Indemnification, Limitation of Liability and Damages, Disclaimer of Warranty and Limited Warranty, Third Party Services, Feedback, Notices, and Miscellaneous provisions.
