The AWB Firm provides general documents and information it hopes will be helpful to those who have chosen to complete their own legal documents.

Because the law is constantly changing and varies among jurisdictions, The AWB Firm can in no way guarantee the effectiveness of its services, products or any materials in any particular jurisdiction.

Therefore, in all cases, especially those that are very particular or complex in nature, The AWB Firm encourages you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney for your jurisdiction.

You accept and agree that you are responsible for the completion of any Product after it is purchased. There are highlighted blanks in each template that are solely your responsibility to complete.

You acknowledge that, by engaging with The AWB Firm for the Products, you voluntarily assume an element of inherent risk, and knowingly and freely assume all risk and responsibility for injuries to any persons or damages to any property, and release, covenant not to sue, and hold Releasees harmless for any and all liability to you, your personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin, for any and all claims, causes of action, obligations, lawsuits, charges, complaints, controversies, damages, costs or expenses of whatsoever kind, nature, or description, whether direct or indirect, in law or in equity, in contract or in tort, or otherwise, whether known or unknown, arising out of or connected with your participation in the Products, whether or not caused by the active or passive negligence of the Releasees.

In the event that the release and hold harmless provision is held unenforceable for any reason, you agree to limit any damages claimed to the total paid to The AWB Firm for the Products.

9. Information and education only; no substitute for professional advice

The Products provide information and education only, and do not provide any financial, legal, medical or psychological services or advice. The Products are not intended to be a substitute for professional advice that can be provided by your own accountant, lawyer, financial advisor, or medical professional. You are responsible for your own financial, legal, physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results.

14. Security

Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

16. Termination

The AWB Firm reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse or terminate your access to the Products, Package, and Content, in full or in part, at any time without notice. In the event of cancellation or termination, you are no longer authorized to access the part of the Products, Package, or Content affected by such cancellation or termination. The restrictions imposed on you in these Terms with respect to the Products, Package, and Content will still apply now and in the future, even after termination by you or The AWB Firm.

17. Use outside United States

The AWB Firm controls and operates the Products from offices in the United States. The AWB Firm does not represent that materials in the Products are appropriate or available for use in other locations. People who choose to access the Products from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

18. Interpretation and severance, integration

You expressly agree that these Terms are intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the law of the State of Tennessee, and that if any portion is held invalid, it is agreed that it will be severed and the balance shall continue in full legal force and effect. This release is not intended as an attempted release of claims of gross negligence or intentional acts by Releasees. This is the entire agreement of the parties, and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter. This agreement supersedes all prior written and oral representations.

The AWB Firm may change, modify or update these Terms at any time without notice, by posting them on the www.awbfirm.com, www.onlinecourselegal.com, or related domain or subdomain. Any access or use of the Products by you after The AWB Firm publicly posts or distributes such changes shall constitute consent of such modifications.

19. Refund policy; chargebacks

All standalone contract templates are non-refundable and not returnable, under any circumstances. All sales of these products are final.

Since The AWB Firm has a clear and explicit Refund Policy in these Terms that you have agreed to prior to completing the purchase of these products, we do not tolerate or accept any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit card company. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, we reserve the right to report the incident to all three credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as a delinquent account which could have a negative impact on your credit report score. The information reported will include your name, email address, order date, order amount, and billing address. Chargeback abusers wishing to be removed from the database shall make the payment for the amount of the chargeback.

If you purchase the Legal Road Map® for Course Creators package (“Package”), we provide a 45- 9 day money-back guarantee for the Package. That money-back guarantee is governed by the following terms.

In order to qualify for a refund, you must submit proof that you tried to implement at least two (2) legal document templates and they did not work for you. Within 45 days of your date of purchase, you may contact our business manager at info@awbfirm.com and let us know you’d like a refund by the 45th day at 11:59 EST.

You must include your two completed templates with your request for a refund, and tell us why they did not work for your business. What did you expect that you did not get once inside the program?

If you request a refund and do not include your completed templates and the reason(s) they did not work for your business by the 45th day, you will not be granted a refund.

We will NOT provide refunds for any request that comes more than 45 days following the date of purchase. After day 45, all payments are non-refundable and you are responsible for full payment of the fees for the Package regardless of whether you complete the Package.

Please note: If you opted for a payment plan and you do not request a refund within 45 days, with the required information at the time of your refund request, you are required by law to complete the remaining payments of your payment plan.

Upon determining that you are entitled to a refund pursuant to this policy, The AWB Firm will promptly issue an instruction to its payment processor to issue the refund. The AWB Firm does not control its payment processor and will not be able to expedite any refunds.

If you receive a refund of any purchase through this money-back guarantee, that shall immediately terminate any and all licenses granted you to use the material provided to you under this Agreement. You shall immediately cease using the material and shall destroy all copies of the information provided to you, including without limitation: video recordings, audio recordings, forms, template documents, slide shows, membership areas, social media groups limited to paying members, and other resources.

All refunds are discretionary as determined by The AWB Firm. To further clarify, we will not provide refunds for requests made after the 45th day from your date of purchase and all payments must be made on a timely basis. If payments are not made on time, you agree to pay interest on all past-due sums at a rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate allowed by law, whichever is greater.
