    1. General Practices.
      1. The Plan Member acknowledge that the Firm may establish general practices and limits concerning use of its Legal Plans, including without limitation the maximum number of complimentary attorney consultations you may receive in a given period of time related to one or all subjects.
    2. Right to Change Practices.

    3. Responsibility for Misuse.

    4. Right to disengage
      1. The Plan Member may terminate this representation at any time by notifying the Firm in writing of the Plan Member’s desire to terminate representation. The Firm may terminate representation of the Plan Member upon notice to the Plan Member if the Plan Member fails to fulfill its obligations under this agreement, or as provided under certain ethical and professional rules applicable to lawyers. Those rules describe several circumstances and types of client conduct that require or allow me to withdraw from representation, including, for example, the nonpayment of fees or costs, misrepresentation or failure to disclose material facts, failure to cooperate during the representation, the client taking action contrary to The Firm’s advice, and a conflict of interest with another client. The termination of services, initiated by either party, will not affect the Plan Member’s responsibility for payment of outstanding statements, for fees accrued and costs incurred before termination, or for fees and costs accrued or incurred thereafter in connection with an orderly transition of the matter.
  5. Authority to Enter Agreement. If the individual executing this agreement is entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, said individual represents that he or she has the legal authority to bind such entity to these terms, in which case the term Plan Member shall refer to such entity. If said individual does not have such authority or if he or she does not agree with this Agreement, he or she may not sign up for or use any Legal Plan. If after executing this Agreement we find that said individual does not have authority to bind the entity for which said individual will be personally responsible for the obligations in this Agreement and the order placed, including without limitation, the payment obligations. The Firm is not liable for any loss or damage resulting from the Firm’s reliance on any instruction, notice, document or communication, reasonably believed to be genuine and originating from a Plan Member Representative. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document, or communication, we may, but are not obliged to, require additional authentication from said individual.
  6. Payment.
    1. Legal Plan Membership Fees. The Plan Member will be charged in accordance with the billing terms in effect at the time of the initial purchase, unless notified of a fee change in accordance with “Fee Adjustments” below. For any Legal Plan purchased that is charged in full upon purchase, the Plan Member agrees that each renewal term for such Legal Plan, the amount due for the next term will be due and immediately payable in full as of the first day of that renewed term. For each Legal Plan, the charge remains the same regardless of the Plan Member’s use or failure to use the Plan Benefits. In other words, EVEN IF THE PLAN MEMBER DOES NOT USE THE LEGAL PLAN BENEFITS OR SPEAK WITH AN ATTORNEY, IT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNLESS AND UNTIL THE SUBSCRIPTION IS TERMINATED. For more information regarding canceling the Legal Plan subscription, see the “Termination or Cancellation” section below.
    2. Billing.
      1. To allow payment for the initial term of a Legal Plan, valid credit card information is due at the time of purchase.
      2. If the Plan Member has selected automatic renewal, the Legal Plan subscription will renew automatically at the end of the initial term (the “Billing Date”) and at the end of each term thereafter unless and until the Firm receives notice of termination of the Legal Plan subscription pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. If the Firm does not receive a notice of termination, the credit card on file with the Firm will be charged for the renewal term of the Legal Plan subscription on your billing date. If your purchase date is on the 29th through 31st day of any month, your Billing Date for renewals in months with fewer days will fall on the last day of the month. The Firm may adjust your billing date in subsequent renewal periods without notice. This will be reflected by a charge to the Plan Member’s account on a pro-rated basis according to the number of days that have passed since the billing date of your latest renewal charge. Unless otherwise notified in advance by Gravis Law, PLLC pursuant to this Agreement, the renewal charge will be equal to the original purchase price for the Legal Plan.
      3. The Plan Member agrees to pay the Firm the fees associated with the Legal Plan subscription. Additional discounts may be available for members depending on the plan purchased. A schedule of fees for the standard Legal Plan subscriptions is set forth by Engagement Letter between Firm and Plan Member and is incorporated herein to the Terms of Service.
    3. Notice of Automatic Renewal.
      1. If applicable, we will send a reminder email to the email address of record for the Plan Member’s account approximately one week before the billing date. The Plan Member acknowledges and agrees that this notice is provided as a courtesy only, and the Firm is not obligated or required to provide such notice. The Plan Member acknowledges and agrees that (i) the Plan Member’ failure to read, (ii) the Plan Member’s inability to receive, or (iii) the Firm’s failure to send the email does not create or relieve any liability on either party to this Agreement.
    4. Attorney Fees.
      1. Fees for non-complimentary attorney services provided pursuant to a Legal Plan subscription shall be paid directly to the providing firm.
  7. Fee Adjustments. The Firm may increase its fees for any Legal Plan subscription effective the first day of a renewal term by providing the Plan Member written notice of the new fees at least 30 days before the beginning of the renewal term. If the Plan Member does not cancel the subscription pursuant to Section 8, the Plan Member shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that renewal term and any subsequent renewal terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent renewal term). Reductions in fees become effective on the next renewal term without any pro rata for the period covered under the prior fee schedule.
  8. Default, Termination, or Cancellation.
    1. By the Firm.
      1. If payment is not made on the due date, as described in Section 6 above, the Plan Member will have until the 1 month anniversary of your Billing Date (in Texas and Massachusetts, this grace period will be 31 days to correct the credit card information on file and post a payment to your account. If after the expiration of this grace period, the Plan Member has not made any payment on the Legal Plan subscription, such non-payment may result in the Plan Member’s account being placed into default, suspension of service, and/or subsequent termination of the Legal Plan subscription.
      2. The Plan Member’s right to use a Legal Plan subscription is subject to any limits established by the Firm or by the Plan Member’s credit card issuer. If payment cannot be charged to the credit card or the charge is returned for any reason, including through a chargeback, the Firm reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to place the Plan Member’s account into default, suspend or terminate services and the account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all the Firm’s obligations hereunder. If a charge made to the Plan Member’s credit card is declined, the Firm may make up to five (5) attempts to bill that card over a 30 day period.
      3. If the Plan Member wishes to reactivate its account after such termination, there will be no setup or reactivation fees; provided, however, accounts terminated for non-payment will be reactivated only on receipt of the full amount past due and a written request to reinstate the account. When an expired account is reactivated, the new term begins on the date of reactivation.
    2. By Plan Member.
      1. After the Plan Member has received this Agreement, you have 10 days to review it. If during this period, the Plan Member is not satisfied with the Agreement, the Plan Member may return the Agreement to the Firm and have any prepaid amounts refunded. If the Agreement is returned and the Plan Member has not sought legal services pursuant hereto within this time period, the Agreement shall be void from the beginning and the parties shall be in the same position as if this Agreement had not been entered.

    4. Default and Remedies
      1. If, as provided above, the Plan Member’s account is placed into default, the Firm, has the right to accelerate all payments and make demand on the full amount. The Firm retains the right to use all remedies available both civil and criminal to collect all unpaid amounts.

  10. Professional, Independent Attorney Judgment. Any attorney rendering legal services to Plan Members under a Legal Plan shall maintain the attorney-client relationship with the Plan Member, and is solely responsible to the Plan Member for all legal services provided. It is within the sole discretion of the attorney to determine whether claims or defenses pertaining to any matter under this Agreement present a frivolous or otherwise unmeritorious claim or defense. Participating attorneys reserve the right to make independent professional judgments regarding such presentations. The Firm will in no way influence or attempt to affect the rendering of professional services of the participating attorneys.
  11. Registered Agent Services
    1. Service Provider. The Plan Member acknowledges and agrees that the Firm may work with third-party providers and sub-providers (each, a “Registered Agent”) of our choice to provide some or all of the Registered Agent Services. You acknowledge and agree that any such Registered Agent may provide Registered Agent Services to you.
    2. Service of Process. The Plan Member authorizes its Registered Agent to receive service of process, including any notices of legal proceedings, other legal notices, or official government communication (collectively, ”Legal Mailings”), on your behalf. The Plan Member further authorizes its Registered Agent to scan and upload Legal Mailings received on the Plan Member’s behalf into the Plan Member’s account at the Center. From the Center, or by phone or email, the Plan Member may direct its Registered Agent to perform the following actions with respect to the Legal Mailings, and when the Plan Member so directs its Registered Agent, it authorize the Registered Agent to do so:

      2. forward to another account;
      3. shred or recycle the envelope and its contents;
      4. unsubscribe or opt in to mailing lists; or
      5. perform any other actions the Registered Agent may offer.
    3. Not a Mailing Address. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, the Registered Agent’s services are limited to the receipt and forwarding of Legal Mailings, and do not include receipt of correspondence that is not a Legal Mailing. The Registered Agent has no obligation to forward any items received pursuant to any unauthorized use of the Registered Agent’s address (the “Registered Address”) and neither the Registered Agent nor the Firm assumes liability to the Plan Member or any other party for loss of such items. The Plan Member assumes all liability for such losses regardless of whether the Plan Member approved or initiated the unauthorized use. Your Registered Agent may seek reimbursement from you for any and all costs incurred in connection with the unauthorized use of the Registered Address. The Registered Agent’s address (the “Registered Address”) is for the primary purpose of receiving Legal Mailings on your behalf. Unless otherwise specified, the primary business address you list on any filed document needs to reflect the primary business address your company operates from, regardless of what state that address is in.
    4. Representation of Registered Address. The Plan Member agrees not to represent or misleadingly suggest, whether orally, in writing, photographically, or otherwise, that the Registered Address is the Plan Member’s official place of business, the location of operations or business records, or is a physical address at which third parties can find the Plan Member. The Plan Member may not list the Registered Address in your company’s public media, including business cards, brochures, websites, or emails.
    5. Misdirected Mail. The Plan Member acknowledges that the Registered Agent delivers mail to users; it does not warrant that mail will never be misdelivered. The Plan Member acknowledges that in such cases neither the Firm nor the Registered Agent is liable to the intended recipient. The Registered Agent will make its best efforts to notify both the intended recipient and the unintended recipient immediately on discovery of the error and seek immediate retrieval of the item from the unintended recipient.
    6. Customer-Returned Mail. If the Plan Member refuses or fails to accept Legal Mailings forwarded by the Registered Agent pursuant to this Agreement, the Plan Member will bear any costs of returning the Legal Mailings. At the request of The Firm or the Registered Agent, the Plan Member must sign for or otherwise acknowledge its acceptance of all Legal Mailings sent to by the Registered Agent.
    7. Plan Member Responsibility to Provide Accurate and Updated Information. It is the Plan Member’s responsibility to contact the Firm with changes to the Plan Member’s contact information and business status (such as dissolved or inactive) within 30 days of the change. Failure to do so may result in the termination of services. The Plan Member acknowledges that neither the Firm nor the Registered Agent is liable to for damages resulting from the Plan Member’s failure to update or provide accurate information to the Firm.
    8. Termination or Cancellation of Registered Agent Services.
      1. By the Firm.
        1. The Firm may terminate the Plan Member’s use of all or part of the Center or access to Subscription Services at any time in its sole discretion; provided, however, that, as the Plan Member’s sole remedy, the Firm will refund to any prepaid fees actually paid specifically related to that Subscription Service or part thereof.
        2. If the Registered Agent Service is terminated, the Firm reserves the right to resign, with proper notice if required by state law, from acting as the Registered Agent. Reasons for termination and resignation may include (but are not limited to): 1) the Plan Member’s failure to provide accurate, complete, and current information as requested or required by the Firm or the Registered Agent, 2) the inability to locate the Plan Member after reasonable and diligent efforts are made, 3) the Plan Member’s failure to pay, or 4) suspected illegal activity.
        3.

      2. By Plan Member.
        1. If you make a cancellation request within 30 days of the date on which you ordered your Subscription Service (the “Cancellation Period”), Gravis Law will refund the full amount charged for such Subscription Service. At the end of the Cancellation Period, you may cancel your Subscription Service by calling (509) 380-9102. After such cancellation, your Subscription Service will remain active until the end of then-applicable Term.
      3. Services after Termination.
        After termination of your Subscription Service, either by you or by Gravis Law:

        1. You will not be able to access the Subscription Service offerings in the Center.
        2. Gravis Law or your Registered Agent will ship any Mail (via lowest-cost carrier) to you until the end of the then-current Term.
      4. Your Obligations on Termination.
        After termination and the end of the then-applicable Term, you agree that:

        1. You will no longer incur charges in respect of your subscription.
        2. If you no longer wish to use the Registered Agent Services in any jurisdiction, you must assign another registered agent in that jurisdiction, and must pay all fees related to changing your agent (including appointment and/or registration fees). In addition, you must notify both Gravis Law and your Registered Agent that you have properly changed registered agents by the next Billing Date, either by phone or email, and provide both Gravis Law and your Registered Agent with satisfactory written proof that the Registered Agent is no longer listed as your registered agent. If, however, you no longer wish to use the Registered Agent Services because you are discontinuing your business operations (voluntarily or otherwise), you must properly dissolve, cancel, withdraw, or otherwise properly terminate your entity. You must also notify both Gravis Law and your Registered Agent that you have properly discontinued business operations by the next Billing Date, either by phone or email, and provide both Gravis Law and your Registered Agent with proof of your dissolution, cancellation, withdrawal, or termination of your entity. If you fail to provide both Gravis Law and your Registered Agent with satisfactory written proof of your resignation of the Registered Agent as your registered agent or of your discontinuation of business operations, you will continue to incur charges for Registered Agent Services until such proof is provided.
        3. Any Mail that your Registered Agent receives on your behalf as your registered agent will be marked “Return to Sender” if it is first class mail or destroyed if it is not. You waive and release your Registered Agent from compliance with any obligation to forward or re-mail Mail received after your subscription has been terminated and specifically agree that your Registered Agent has no obligation to forward or re-mail Mail to you except as expressly stated in this Agreement. You agree to hold Gravis Law, your Registered Agent and the affiliates of each harmless from any claim to the contrary.
        4. You acknowledge that you have sole responsibility for notifying senders (including all government agencies) of a registered agent address other than your Registered Address.
        5. In the event this Agreement is terminated (other than by reason of your breach), Gravis Law will make available to you a file of your Center content (“Customer Data”) within 30 days of termination if you so request at that time. You agree and acknowledge that Gravis Law has no obligation to retain the Customer Data and may delete such Customer Data more than 30 days after termination.
    9. No Guarantee. The Firm makes no guarantee that all necessary alerts, reminders, filings, requirements, or regulations are incorporated, included, or referenced in the Center or provided by email, or that the information provided by the Center or by email is accurate, reliable, complete, or timely. Furthermore, laws, regulations, and administrative requirements often change, and their application and impact vary from company to company and industry to industry. Accordingly, neither the Center nor any email communication is intended to provide or substitute for accounting, legal, business, tax, or other professional advice or services. They are offered for information purposes only and the Center serves only as a venue for individuals to record specific information. The Center, any email communications, and the information contained in any of these are not and should not be construed or relied on as legal advice. Compliance with all laws and regulations remains the Plan Member’s sole and absolute responsibility. Before taking any business or legal action based on information from the Site, the Center, or any email communication, the Plan Member should consult with a financial or legal professional to verify deadlines and determine whether such actions are appropriate based on the Plan Member’s needs. No representations or warranties, express or implied, are given regarding the legal or other consequences resulting from the use of the Center or the Subscription Services.
    10. Indemnification. The Plan Member specifically indemnifies the Firm and holds us harmless from any and all liability, claims, damages, losses, or causes of actions arising from our inspection of the Legal Mailings or from the release of information regarding the Plan Member or the Plan Member’s use of the Subscription Services to any local, state, or national agency or to USPS, or to a private party whose subpoena the Plan Member fails to contest as directed by the Law Firm. Except as provided herein, we will preserve the confidentiality of the Legal Mailings’ contents with respect to third parties and will not use or disclose information contained in the Legal Mailings other than to carry out the purposes for which such information has been disclosed.

      The Plan Member agrees to protect, defend, indemnify, and hold the Firm harmless from and against any and all claims, causes of action, liabilities, judgments, penalties, losses, costs, damages, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses of litigation at arbitration, or at trial or on appeal, if any, whether or not litigation or arbitration is instituted) suffered or incurred by the Firm, including, without limitation, any claim for personal injury or property damage, arising from:

      1. this Agreement;
      2. the Subscription Services provided to the Plan Member;
      3. the Plan Member’s use of the Subscription Services, including without limitation any copyright infringement claims that could arise from the Registered Agent scanning Legal Mailings or other documents;
      4. the failure of any third party, USPS, or any commercial delivery or courier service, to provide delivery or courier services accurately and on time;
      5. loss, damage, or destruction of the Legal Mailings by any cause whatsoever whether or not attributable to the Firm’s negligence or intentional act; and
      6. any violation by the Plan Member of any federal, state, or local laws, statutes, rules, or regulations.

      For purposes of this Agreement, the indemnified parties shall include the Firm and its owners, affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, shareholders, members, successors, assigns, representatives, franchisees, officers, directors, agents, attorneys, and employees.

  12. Limitation of Liability.
    1. Registered Agent Services.
      1. THE PLAN MEMBER AGREES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT NEITHER THE FIRM NOR THE REGISTERED AGENT IS LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS TO THE LEGAL MAILINGS DURING OR AFTER MAILING OR SHIPMENT TO THE PLAN MEMBER. NEITHER THE FIRM NOR THE REGISTERED AGENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MAIL FOR WHICH THERE IS NO RECORD OF RECEIPT BY EITHER OF US. Any additional insurance in excess of the standard amount insured by carriers, if any, must be authorized and paid for in advance by the Plan Member. The Plan Member acknowledges and agrees that neither the Firm nor the Registered Agent has any responsibility or obligation to insure any mail or shipments sent to you.
    2. Alerts
      1. Any alerts included as part of our Subscription Services may include reminders in the Center or by email of filing deadlines or other important dates. The Plan Member’s failure to view or read the message or inability to receive the message does not create any liability on the part of the Firm. The Compliance Calendar is made available to the Plan Member so important deadlines can be complied with. Compliance with any deadlines, whether or not referenced or communicated in the Center or by email, is always the Plan Member’s sole responsibility. The Firm will not be liable for any loss of good standing of an entity for any reason.
  13. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Circular 230 Tax Advice Disclosure. To ensure compliance with requirements imposed by the IRS under Circular 230, we inform the Plan Member that any U.S. federal tax advice contained in any communication from the Firm (including information contained in the Center) is and was not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, for the purpose of (1) avoiding penalties under the Internal Revenue Code or (2) promoting, marketing, or recommending to another party any matters addressed therein.
  14. Waivers. A waiver by any party of any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement in any one instance shall not be deemed or construed to be a waiver of the term or condition for the future, or of any subsequent breach thereof, nor shall it be deemed a waiver of performance of any other obligation. No waiver shall be binding upon any party unless set forth in writing signed by or on behalf of the party to be bound by the waiver.
  15. Attorney Fees. In any proceeding in court with respect to enforcement or interpretation of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to costs and attorney fees in the amount awarded by the court in its discretion, taking into account the respective merit of the positions of the parties and good faith in pursuing the proceedings in court.

  20. Amendment/Modification. This Agreement may be amended or modified only by a writing signed by all parties.
  21. Severability. Each provision hereof shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but in case any one or more of the provisions contained herein shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the provision shall be ineffective to the extent, but only to the extent, of its invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without invalidating the remainder of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision or provisions or any other provisions hereof, unless such a construction would be unreasonable.
  22. Counterparts; Signatures.
