By accessing this website or using the Services, you are agreeing to the TOS, 4CNI’s Privacy Policy, 4CNI’s Guidelines, and any and all other rules and regulations promulgated by 4CNI regarding the use of this website.

For the purposes of this document the terms “attorney” and “lawyer” are deemed to have the same meaning and may be used interchangeably.

  1. Using Our Services

You may use our Services only if you can form a binding contract with 4CNI. No use of the Services is permitted by those under the age of majority in their state of residence. In no event is use of the Services permitted by those under the age of 13. If you are using the Services on behalf of any entity, then you are agreeing to these TOS on behalf of that entity.

Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. Except in the context of browsing or accessing our Services in accordance with these TOS, you may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These TOS do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Do not remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.

Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.

  1. Rating Systems

4CNI does not rate attorneys or users.

  1. Information on the Services

Our Services display content that is not created or developed by 4CNI. This content is the sole responsibility of the person or entity that creates or develops it. We may review such third party-content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But we do not routinely screen third-party content that is published via our Services. This includes the legal information that lawyers post on 4CNI websites. We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy, adequacy, or quality of any such legal information, or the qualifications of those posting it.

  1. No Legal Advice

The information available on this site does not constitute and is not legal advice. If you need legal advice you should contact a qualified attorney.

  1. No Formation of an Attorney-Client Relationship

The legal information posted on 4CNI websites is intended for general informational purposes only and should be used only as a starting point for addressing your legal issues. The legal information is not the provision of legal services, and accessing such information, or corresponding with or asking questions to a lawyer via the Services, or otherwise using the Services, does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and 4CNI, or you and any lawyer. It is not a substitute for an in-person or telephonic consultation with a lawyer licensed to practice in your jurisdiction about your specific legal issue, and you should not rely on such legal information found on 4CNI websites. You understand that questions and answers or other postings to the Services are not confidential and are not subject to attorney-client privilege.

  1. Legal Services for the Public

4CNI provides a platform where lawyers unaffiliated with 4CNI can offer information and interact with the public. 4CNI does not sell or arrange the sale of legal services. 4CNI provides legal information in a variety of formats to the public. No fees are charged to the public or the attorney. Any attorney-client relationship formed as a result of such discussions is between you and the lawyer you speak with and not between you and 4CNI. Furthermore, you understand that 4CNI cannot be held responsible for the quality or accuracy of any information or legal services provided by lawyers you connect with via 4CNI.

  1. Relationship with Lawyers

4CNI does not provide any premium service for attorneys. Attorneys do not pay 4CNI and 4CNI does not pay attorneys to participate on the websites.

  1. Legal Advertising and Communications

It is solely the responsibility of lawyers and law firms to ensure that any information or advertisements they post or place on 4CNI websites, including without limitation any legal information, and any communications they may have with prospective clients through the Services, fully complies with all applicable laws and rules of professional conduct, including those concerning the unauthorized practice of law and those regulating the form, manner or content of communications with clients, advertising, or other matters.

  1. Copyright

We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

If you believe that any material on the Site infringes upon any copyright which you own or control, you may file a DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement with 4CNI’s designated copyright agent:

  1. Software

Some of our Services allow you to download client software which may update automatically; you agree that these TOS will apply to such upgrades. So long as you comply with these TOS, 4CNI gives you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the software, solely to access the Services. To the extent any component of the software may be offered under an open source license, we will make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of these TOS. Unless the following restrictions are prohibited by law, you agree not to reverse engineer or de-compile the Services, attempt to do so, or assist anyone in doing so.

  1. Disclaimers and Acknowledgements Regarding Use of Legal Information

While 4CNI strives to provide—and to allow participating lawyers to provide—useful information regarding lawyers and legal services, there are some things that we cannot guarantee. You acknowledge that such information consists of third party data and contributions, that there are certain inherent limitations to the accuracy or currency of such information, that legal and other information may be incomplete, may contain inaccuracies, or may be based on opinion. 4cni does not screen such information for accuracy or reliability. To the fullest extent permitted by law, 4cni and its affiliates, suppliers, and distributors make no warranties, either express or implied, about the services.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event shall 4cni or any of its affiliates, suppliers and distributors, or any of their respective directors, employees, and agents, be liable for any special, indirect, or consequential damages, or any loss of profits or revenues, whether incurred directly or indirectly, or any loss of data, use, goodwill, or other intangible losses, resulting from (1) the outcome of any legal matter; (2) your access to or use of or inability to access or use the services; (3) any conduct or content of any third party relating to the services; or (4) unauthorized access, use, or alteration of legal information.

To the extent permitted by law, the total liability of 4cni, and its affiliates, suppliers and distributors, for any claim arising out of or relating in any manner to the use of the services, is limited to the amount you paid us to use the services to which such claim relates in the 12 month period preceding the filing of such claim.

  1. User Posted Content & Other Interactive Services or Areas

4CNI websites include interactive areas in which you may post content and information, including peer and client reviews, questions and answers, comments, photos, and other materials, hereinafter “User Content.” You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to 4CNI websites. You are also solely responsible for your use of such interactive features, and use them at your own risk. By using any interactive feature, you agree to comply with the 4CNI Guidelines. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, at any time, and without pre or post notice, including User Content that we believe violates these TOS or our policies.

When you post User Content to a 4CNI webiste, you give 4CNI and its affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such User Content throughout the world in any media. To the extent such content is attached to a profile on the 4CNI platform, the foregoing license includes a right to reproduce your profile, and any name, likeness, or photograph contained in such profile. If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.

  1. Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless 4CNI, its corporate affiliates, independent contractors, service providers, and consultants, and each of their respective directors, employees, and agents, from and against any claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to any User Content you post, store, or otherwise transmit on or through the Services or your use of or inability to use the Services, including without limitation any actual or threatened suit, demand or claim arising out of or relating to the User Content, your conduct, your violation of these TOS or your violation of the rights of any third party.

  1. Modifications

4CNI may revise these TOS from time to time, on a prospective basis, and we will always post the most up-to-date version on our website. If we determine, in our sole discretion, that a modification to these TOS materially affects your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to your account email or posting on the 4CNI blog). By using or continuing to use or access the Services after any revisions have come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised TOS.

  1. Applicable Law and Venue

The laws of the State of Washington, excluding its conflict of law provisions, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these TOS or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these TOs or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the state courts located in Whatcom County or the federal courts located in King County, Washington, and you and 4CNI consent to personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue in such courts.

In the event of termination of access to the Services for any reason, you have no right to obtain a copy of any data or communications you stored or effected via the Services, or any other data.

  1. Entire Agreement

These TOS constitute the entire agreement between you and 4CNI with respect to the subject matter of these TOs, and supersede and replace any prior version of the TOS. These TOs create no third party beneficiary rights.

  1. Waiver, Severability & Assignment

4CNI’s failure to enforce a provision of these TOS is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If any provision of these TOS is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the TOS will remain in full effect and an enforceable term or terms will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these TOS, and any attempt to do so will be void. 4CNI may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
