YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THE SITE AND THE SERVICES YOU ARE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE AND YOU ARE LEGALLY ABLE TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT.
StopSuit provides an online legal portal to give visitors a general understanding of the law and to provide an automated software solution to individuals who choose to prepare their own legal documents. To that extent, the Site includes general information on commonly encountered legal issues. StopSuit's Services may sometimes, but may not always, include a review of your answers for completeness, spelling and grammar, and for internal consistency of names, addresses and the like. At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. StopSuit and its Services are not substitutes for the advice of an attorney.
StopSuit strives to keep its legal documents accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes rapidly, StopSuit cannot guarantee that all of the information on the Site 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 StopSuit provides can fit every circumstance. Furthermore, the legal information contained on the Site 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.
From time to time, StopSuit may perform certain attorney access services and introduce our visitors to attorneys through various methods, including but not limited to (i) an online portal, (ii) third party attorney directory listings, (iii) third party limited scope agreements and (iv) third party attorney services. At no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created through the performance of any such services.
This Site is not intended to create any attorney-client relationship, and your use of StopSuit does not and will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and StopSuit. Instead, you are and will be representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake through StopSuit's legal document or other services.
When you open an account to use or access certain portions of the Site or the Services, you must provide complete and accurate information as requested on the registration form. You will also be asked to provide a user name and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use a third party's account, user name or password at any time. You agree to notify StopSuit immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, user name or password. StopSuit shall not be liable for any losses you incur as a result of someone else's use of your account or password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by StopSuit, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and representatives due to someone else's use of your account or password.

6. Additional Terms
7. Reviews, Comments, Communications, And Other Content
Rights and Responsibilities of StopSuit:
StopSuit is not the publisher or author of the User Content. It is a passive service for storage and dissemination of the ideas and opinions that StopSuit members may choose to post, store, and distribute as User Content. StopSuit does not screen works before they are posted, stored, or produced, and no prior approval is required for posting or storage. StopSuit disclaims all copyright and ownership in such works and all responsibility for them.
Although we cannot make an absolute guarantee of system security, StopSuit takes reasonable steps to maintain security. If you have reason to believe system security has been breached, contact us by E-MAIL for help.
If StopSuit's technical staff finds that files or processes belonging to a member pose a threat to the proper technical operation of the system or to the security of other members, StopSuit reserves the right to delete those files or to stop those processes. If the StopSuit technical staff suspects a user name is being used by someone who is not authorized by the proper user, StopSuit may temporarily disable that user's access in order to preserve system security. In all such cases, StopSuit will contact the member as soon as feasible.
StopSuit reserves the right to refuse service to anyone and to cancel user access at any time.
Rights and Responsibilities of StopSuit Users or Other Posters of User Content:
You are legally and ethically responsible for any User Content - writings, files, pictures or any other work - that you post, store, or transmit using any StopSuit service that allows interaction or dissemination of information. In posting or storing User Content, you are responsible for honoring the rights of others, including intellectual-property rights (copyright, patent and trademark), the right to privacy and the right not to be libeled or slandered. For example, if you wish to post a copyrighted work as User Content, you are responsible for obtaining the copyright holder's permission first.
Under United States federal law, you retain copyright on all works you create and post as User Content, unless you choose specifically to renounce it.

Your Rights and Responsibilities as a StopSuit User and Reader of User Content:
You are not required to provide your real name when signing up as a user of StopSuit. StopSuit permits anonymous or pseudonymous accounts. Any user may request that such member's e-mail address be hidden to provide for additional privacy.
If you have a complaint about the behavior or posts of another user, it is your responsibility to attempt to resolve the conflict, typically by contacting that person directly, if possible. Normally, StopSuit staff will not take a role in mediating conflicts between you and other users. StopSuit does not take responsibility for your behavior or that of other users. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such a complaint or conflict arises, the user or users may request that StopSuit moderator intervene and attempt to resolve any such dispute. Any such request is not a guarantee that a moderator will (i) intervene, (ii) intervene in a timely manner, (iii) resolve the dispute in favor of one party or the other or (iv) successfully resolve the situation. The decision to intervene rests with StopSuit, in our sole and absolute discretion.
Your access to the materials that users have posted or stored as User Content is for your personal use only. If you want to redistribute postings you find as User Content, it is your responsibility to obtain permission from the poster (and any other person with rights in such work).
You agree to help protect your account and the security of other users by guarding your password. If you have reason to believe your password has been compromised or there has been any unauthorized use of your account, contact StopSuit via E-MAIL as soon as possible.
