Download agreement

(1) Introduction

Please read the download agreement carefully. You will be asked to expressly agree to the download agreement before you place an order for downloads on our website.

(2) Interpretation

In the download agreement, "we" means SEQ Legal LLP (and "us" and "our" will be construed accordingly); "you" means our customer or potential customer for downloads (and "your" will be construed accordingly).

(3) Order process

The advertising of downloads on our website constitutes an "invitation to treat"; and your order for downloads constitutes a contractual offer. The download agreement will not come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.

In order to enter into the download agreement, you will need to take the following steps: (i) you must add any downloads you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout; (ii) you must provide your details, confirm your order and give your consent to this agreement; (iii) Sage Pay or PayPal will handle your payment; (v) we will send you an email confirming your order (at which point, in each case, this download agreement will come into force). Once the agreement is in force, you will be able to obtain your downloads from the "my account" area of the website.

We will not file a copy of the download agreement specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of the download agreement on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you print and retain a copy of the download agreement for your records.

The only language in which we provide the download agreement is English.

Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors. You may correct those input errors before placing your order using the website interface.

(4) Downloads

Our website offers a range of downloadable legal templates. The legal templates may include template contracts and agreements, template terms and conditions, template letters, template policies and procedures, and other legal templates.

(5) Price and payment

Prices for downloads are quoted on our website. It is possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a download's correct price will be stated when you pay for the download.

Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. We will withhold the downloads if the price is not received from you on time, in full, in cleared funds.

The prices on the website exclude value added taxes (where applicable).

Payment for all downloads must be made by through Sage Pay by credit or debit card, or through PayPal.

Prices for downloads are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect download agreements that have come into force.

(6) Your warranties

You warrant to us that:

(a) you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;

(b) you have full authority, power and capacity to agree to the download agreement;

(c) the information provided in your order is accurate and complete; and

(d) you have or have access to the necessary computer systems, software and network connections to receive and enjoy the benefit of the downloads that you purchase.

(7) Licence to use downloads

In this Section, "Templates" means the legal templates that you purchase from our website; and "Derivatives" means adapted versions of Templates that do not include the footnotes or editing guidance (indicated by italic text, upper case text and/or square brackets) in the templates

Subject to your payment of the applicable price and compliance with the terms of the download agreement, we grant to you a worldwide non-exclusive licence to make any Permitted Use of any Template; providing that you must not in any circumstances make any Prohibited Use of any Template.

The "Permitted Uses" are:

(a) downloading a copy of each Template;

(b) storing, viewing and editing Templates and Derivatives on one or more computers, and permitting your legal advisers to do so for the purposes set out herein;

(c) publishing a single Derivative on a single website;

(d) printing an unlimited number of copies of any Derivative.

The “Prohibited Uses” are:

(a) the sale, licensing, sub-licensing, renting, leasing or commercial distribution of any Template or Derivative in any format (excluding use as expressly permitted above);

(b) the publishing of any Template (excluding the publication of a Derivative as expressly permitted above);

(c) the use of any Template or Derivative in any way that is unlawful or in breach of any person's legal rights under any applicable law, or in any way that is offensive, indecent, discriminatory or otherwise objectionable;

(d) the use of any Template or Derivative to compete with us, whether directly or indirectly.

This licence is non-transferable. However, if you are a legal or other professional adviser and you purchase a Template for the purpose of creating a Derivative or Derivatives for a client, you may sub-license the rights granted under this Section 7 (subject to the restrictions set out in this Section 7) to that client, in which case, from the time of the sub-licence coming into effect, you will no longer be permitted to exercise those rights.

All rights in the downloads not expressly granted in the download agreement are hereby reserved.

You must retain, and must not delete, obscure or remove, all copyright notices and other proprietary notices placed by us on any Template or Derivative.

If you breach any of the terms of the download agreement, then the licence set out in this Section will be automatically terminated upon such breach (whether or not we notify you of termination).

Upon the termination of the licence set out in this Section, you will promptly and irrevocably delete from your computer systems and other electronic devices all copies of the Template(s) and Derivative(s) in your possession or control, and will permanently destroy any paper or other copies of the Template(s) and Derivative(s) in your possession or control.

(8) Consumer rights

Nothing in the download agreement affects any statutory rights you may have as a consumer.

(9) Limitation of warranties

We supply downloadable template contracts and other legal templates. These documents include guidance notes, which contain information about the laws of England and Wales. The templates and guidance notes are not intended to be comprehensive. Neither the templates nor the guidance notes constitute legal advice. The law is changeable and not always certain; moreover, whilst our templates are designed to cover a range of situations, they cannot be expected to be suitable for all situations. Accordingly, we do not give any representations, warranties or guarantees that any template you use will be suitable for your circumstances.

If you have any doubts about the suitability or correct use of a template, you should seek legal advice from an appropriately qualified lawyer.

The download agreement sets out the full extent of our obligations and liabilities in respect of the downloads supplied hereunder. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and subject to the first paragraph of Section 12, All conditions, warranties and other terms concerning the downloads that might otherwise be implied into the download agreement are expressly excluded.

If you are entitled to a refund under this download agreement, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.

In this Section and Section 12 below, “force majeure event” means:

(a) any event which is beyond our reasonable control;

(c) problems with the internet, part of the internet, or any third party internet service provider; and/or

(d) power failure, industrial disputes affecting any third party, governmental regulations, fires, floods, disasters, civil riots, terrorist attacks or wars.

(13) Business customers: indemnity

If you are a business customer, you hereby indemnify us and undertake to keep us indemnified against all and any liabilities, losses, damages, expenses and costs (including legal expenses and amounts paid in settlement of any demand, action or claim) arising, directly or indirectly, out of a breach by you of any of your obligations under the download agreement or any infringement by you of any of our or our licensors' intellectual property rights.

If any provision of the download agreement is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect, and such invalid or unenforceable provisions or portion thereof will be deemed omitted.

No waiver of any provision of the download agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, will be deemed to be, or be construed as, a further or continuing waiver of that provision or any other provision of the download agreement.

You may not transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract, sub-license or otherwise deal in any of your rights or obligations arising under the download agreement. Any attempt by you to do so will be null and void.
