|LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR USE OF OUR DOCUMENTS
This License Agreement is applicable to all of the Documents and Document Packages that are downloaded from our site. You are deemed to have read, understood and accepted the terms of this License Agreement when you purchase and download document packages through our web site.
The parties to this Agreement are that party purchasing and downloading documents through our web site (defined herein as “YOU”) and LEGAL-FORMS-KIT.COM, a Texas Company.
We are not attorneys. We are a publishing company. We cannot represent you in any specific legal matter. We can only sell you our document package in generic form, much like you may purchase a book from a book store that includes form documents. Our documents are of a general nature and may not address your specific transaction or relationship nor are we qualified or legally permitted to do so.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SEEK THE AID AND ADVICE OF AN ATTORNEY PRIOR TO MAKING ANY OF THE DOCUMENTS CONTAINED IN OUR DOCUMENT PACKAGE A BINDING AGREEMENT. ONLY AN ATTORNEY VERSED IN INTERNET RELATED LEGAL ISSUES CAN GIVE YOU THE LEGAL ADVICCE THAT YOUR BUSINESS REQUIRES. USING OUR DOCUMENTS IS NO REPLACEMENT FOR COMPETENT LEGAL ADVICE.
ALL DOCUMENTS AND DOCUMENT PACKAGES OFFERED ON THIS SITE ARE THE PROPERTY OF LEGAL-FORMS-KIT.COM. CLAIMS ALL COPYRIGHTS AND OTHER PROPRIETARY RIGHTS IN AND TO SUCH DOCUMENTS, AS WELL AS ALL OTHER MATERIALS CONTAINED ON THIS WEB SITE.

This includes companies that may be affiliated to YOU by ownership or otherwise.
2. Upon payment in full of the purchase price and downloading the Documents, YOU are permitted to do only the following:
a. YOU may use the form documents in transactions and agreements in which YOU are one of the parties. You may have your attorney review, comment and modify the form agreements to fit your particular needs and YOU are encouraged to obtain competent legal counsel to advise you on the use of the Documents and the contractual relationship that you are establishing using our documents.

Contact us for terms of a LAW FIRM LICENSE.
e. You may transmit copies of Documents in hard copy only (not in computer file form) to other individuals within your company who have a need to know and to other parties to the agreement or with whom you are negotiating an agreement.
