Our products and Services (“Services”) are provided by Gareth Conan Myers Incorporated (“GCM Legal”), located 306 Barry Hertzog Avenue, Greenside, Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa.
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms.
SECTION 1: USING OF SERVICES
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Our Services may not be misused. For example, do not interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Do not remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not GCM Legal’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please do not assume that we do.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.
SECTION 2: ONLINE ACCOUNT
You may need a GCM Legal Account in order to use some of our Services.
If you are using a GCM Legal Account, keep your login details confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your GCM Legal Account.
SECTION 3: PRIVACY AND COPYRIGHT PROTECTION
SECTION 4: YOUR CONTENT IN OUR SERVICES
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give GCM Legal (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services. Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
Our automated systems analyse your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.
SECTION 5: MODIFYING AND TERMINATING OUR SERVICES
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.
You may stop using our Services at any time and GCM Legal may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services at any time.
Where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information out of that Service.
SECTION 6: WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMERS
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we do not promise about our Services.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS, NEITHER GCM LEGAL NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.
SECTION 6.1: LIABILITY FOR OUR SERVICES
WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, GCM LEGAL, AND GCM LEGAL’S SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF GCM LEGAL, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU THE SERVICES AGAIN).
IN ALL CASES, GCM LEGAL, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.
SECTION 6.2: BUSINESS USES OF OUR SERVICES
If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify GCM Legal and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs, and attorneys’ fees.
SECTION 7: ABOUT THESE TERMS
GCM Legal may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the terms regularly. We will post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We will post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These terms control the relationship between GCM Legal and you.
If you do not comply with these terms, and we do not take action immediately, this should not be interpreted that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
The laws of the Republic of South Africa will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the jurisdiction of the South Gauteng High Court, Johannesburg or the Randburg Magistrate’s Court.
