Sunset Legal LLP grants you a one-time, single-user, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to download, view, copy, and print Products you have purchased (“Paid Products”) solely for personal use by one individual or in obvious cases, one individual and their spouse. Selling, sharing, redistributing, licensing, sublicensing, or otherwise disclosing Paid Products to another individual or any third party is expressly prohibited. You may not assign any rights or delegate any duties under these Terms without our prior written consent.
In the event you breach these Terms you will pay Sunset Legal LLP $5,000 USD, which you agree: (i) has been incorporated into these terms and conditions as a valid pre-estimate of damages that we will sustain which will not be capable of precise determination; and (ii) is not a penalty, but rather is considered the agreed-upon liquidated damages suffered as a result of your using or sharing the template outside of these permitted and expressly limited usage terms.

You may modify the Paid Products solely to the extent necessary to complete the contract templates for your personal use, which includes filling in any blanks.
Unless otherwise stated, Sunset Legal LLP owns, or has obtained a valid license to use, the intellectual property rights to all protectable elements in the Products, including without limitation, the logo, images, trademarks, service marks, design elements, layout, graphics, information, materials, documents, data, and text. We reserve all rights not specifically granted in these Terms.
We strongly recommend that you manage your Product use carefully and in compliance with these Terms, as we monitor the internet for infringing uses of our Product and will take whatever legal action required to enforce our intellectual property rights.
Informational and Educational Purpose Only
Unlike our 1:1 Attorney Services, we provide and sell the Products for general informational and educational purposes only. The Products are not provided as, and are not a substitute for, financial, legal, medical, or other professional services or advice. You agree that we are not responsible, and specifically disclaim any liability, for your reliance on any advice or opinions in the Products. We strongly recommend you consult your own accountant, financial advisor, attorney, or medical professional, as you are ultimately responsible for determining what is best for your unique situation.
While we use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information in our Products, the law is always changing and varies by location. Therefore, we cannot make any representations or warranties as to the accuracy of information in our Products and we assume no liability or responsibility for any errors or representations in the content available in the Products. You agree that you are solely responsible for the completion of any Product you purchase, including, without limitation, filling in the blanks in the Products, and you understand that we strongly recommend you work with an attorney licensed in your particular location where you reside and if relevant, any additional locations in which you do business.
No Refunds; No Chargebacks
All sales are final. All Product purchases are nonrefundable, and Products are not returnable under any circumstances. Because we have a clear No Refunds policy in these Terms and you have agreed to these Terms before purchasing a Product, we will not permit any actual or threatened chargebacks from you or your credit card company. In the event that we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase or a chargeback is placed on your purchase, we will report your name, email, order date and amount, billing address, and a description of the incident to Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion credit bureaus, and to any other entity in our sole discretion, to ensure the incident is included in chargeback databases and delinquent account listings. That report may negatively impact your credit score, and we will require that you make a full payment of the chargeback amount plus any attorney fees or other expenses incurred in connection with the chargeback incident before we will remove you from those databases.
Testimonials Representative of Actual Client or User Experiences, Not Guarantee of Your Experience
Any testimonials, statements, and opinions presented in our Website or Products were provided voluntarily by actual clients (in the case of Service testimonials), or by actual purchasers or beta users (in the case of Product testimonials). Beta users may have received free products, services or other benefits in exchange for providing honest feedback on various versions of the Products. While testimonials are representative of actual client or user experiences, the exact results and experience will be unique for each individual. Therefore, we cannot and do not make any representations or guarantees about any particular results you may experience from using the Products.
