These terms of use (the “Agreement”) set forth the terms and conditions that govern your access and use of our public website www.mbhlawyers.com and any partner or other sites including www.mclellanbrennan.com and www.mbhlawyers.ca (together the “Website” or “Site”) and which is owned and operated by McLellan Brennan Hrga, Barristers and Solicitors (“MBH”). This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and MBH relating to your access and use of our Site.

Please read this Agreement carefully before continuing or using the Site. This Agreement affects your legal rights and obligations. By accessing or using the Site, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. If you do not agree and do not want to be bound by these terms and conditions, do not access or use the site and immediately cease any such use.

Privacy

This Agreement expressly includes our Privacy Policy, which is available on our Site in its entirety. Your use of the Site hereby indicates your agreement to, and acceptance of, our Privacy Policy. You should read our Privacy Policy in full before submitting any personal information to us.

Not Legal Advice

We provide materials and content respecting legal services and the law on our Site which is for informational purposes only. Any such materials and content posted on our Site constitutes general information relating to areas of law familiar to our firm lawyers and in which we practise. Those materials DO NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE or other professional advice and you may not rely on the materials and contents of this Site as such. The information on our Site is not intended to be, and should not be, used or considered a substitute for competent legal representation. Visitors to our Site should always seek appropriate and tailored legal advice from a lawyer qualified to provide such advice before taking, or not taking, any action. Information on our Site should not be construed as legal or other advice and we further disclaim liability for any loss, howsoever caused, arising directly or indirectly from reliance on any information we may now or in the future share on our Site.

No Lawyer-Client Relationship

Furthermore, the contents of our Site do not represent the opinions of MBH, its partners, its employees, or its clients. If you require legal advice, you should retain competent legal counsel to advise you. Accessing or using our Site does not create a solicitor-client relationship. Although the use of our Site may facilitate access to or communications with members of MBH by e-mail or voicemail, receipt of any such communications or transmissions by any member of MBH does not create a solicitor-client relationship, unless our firm explicitly agrees to represent you. If you would like to retain MBH to represent you, please contact us. A solicitor-client relationship will arise between you and MBH only if we specifically agree to act for you. Until we specifically agree to act for you on a matter, you should not provide us with any confidential information or material.

Confidentiality of Communications

The transmission of data or information over the internet or left by voicemail, or other forms of networks, may not be secure, and is subject to possible loss, interception or alteration while in transit, and accordingly, MBH cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any such communication. Unsolicited information and material may not be treated as confidential and will not be protected by any solicitor-client privilege.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability

Although MBH has made reasonable efforts to ensure that the materials contained on our Site are accurate, MBH does not warrant or guarantee: the accuracy, currency or completeness of the materials; that the Site will be available without interruption, error or omission; that defects will be corrected; or that the Site and the server(s) that make it available are free from viruses or harmful components. The Site and the materials provided thereon are provided “as is” and “as available” without representations, warranties or conditions of any kind, either expressed or implied and MBH expressly disclaims any and all representations, warranties and/or conditions that may be implied by law, including, without limitation, any representations, warranties and/or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, and/or fitness for a particular purpose.

MBH does not assume any liability for any damage, losses, or costs incurred by you as a result of any electronic transmissions over the internet, other forms of networks, or use of any information provided on the Site, or otherwise while using the Site. The materials and information provided on the Site is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such; doing so without seeking the advice of legal counsel constitutes a misuse of the information.

Prior results and articles based on cases we have litigated in the past, or other materials available on our website, do not guarantee a similar outcome in future representation.

Release and Indemnity

To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, you hereby agree to release and save harmless MBH, its partners, affiliates, employees, and representatives from and against any and all liabilities and damages—including any direct, indirect, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits—whatsoever or arising from your use of the Site, misuse of the information and materials on the Site, or your breach of any of the terms of this Agreement or our Privacy Policy.

Copyright and Trademarks

All materials and informational content on our Site, including but not limited to text, graphics, videos, photos, trademarks, and logos (the "Content"), are protected by the applicable copyright and trademark laws, and are owned by MBH, or our licensors, or any party credited as the provider and/or owner of the Content. Any use of the Content or anything on our Site, including but not limited to modification, transmission, presentation, distribution, or reproduction, whether in whole or in part, is prohibited without our express prior written approval.

Links to Third Party Sites

Our Site has been designed to be a resource for information on matters that might be of interest to current or potential clients. As a result, we frequently post links throughout our Site to third party sites. These links are provided for convenience only, and do not mean that MBH endorses or recommends the information contained in the linked website, or guarantees its accuracy, timelines or fitness for a particular purpose. We take no responsibility for the content or practices of third party sites.

You are permitted to link to our Site provided that MBH’s name remains visible. However, we reserve the right to withdraw any such permission at any time and for any reason whatsoever.

Termination

We may, in our sole discretion, cancel or terminate your right to use or access our Site, at any time without prior notice to you.

Jurisdiction

This Agreement and any issues, disagreements, or misunderstandings arising hereunder or in relation to this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the province of Prince Edward Island, Canada and the laws of Canada applicable therein.

Severability

Should any portion of this Agreement be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable, or void, such holding will not have the effect of invalidating or voiding the remainder of this Agreement, which will in every other respect continue in full force and effect, and you hereby understand and agree that the portion so held to be invalid, unenforceable, or void, will be deemed amended, reduced in scope, or otherwise stricken only to the extent required for purposes of validity and enforcement in the jurisdiction of such holding.
