1. Description of Patenteer.
Patenteer, Inc. (“Patenteer”) provides an online portal to provide companies an automated software solution for various tasks related to the practice of patent preparation and prosecution. Customer need not download or even license Patenteer software. At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. Patenteer is not a law firm and may not perform services performed by an attorney. Patenteer and its Services are not substitutes for the advice or services of an attorney.
2. Patenteer is not a law firm.
You understand and agree that Patenteer is not a law firm or an attorney, may not perform services performed by an attorney, and is not the substitute for the advice or services of an attorney. No attorney-client relationship or privilege is created with Patenteer.
If, prior to purchasing a subscription to Patenteer, you believe that Patenteer gave you any legal advice, opinion or recommendation about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or strategies, you will not proceed with this purchase, and any purchase that you do make will be null and void.
Patenteer strives to keep its documents accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes rapidly, Patenteer cannot guarantee that all of the information on the Site or Applications is completely current. The law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. The law is a personal matter, and no general information or legal tool like the kind Patenteer provides can fit every circumstance. Furthermore, the legal information contained on the Site and Applications is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.
