    11. Professional-to-Client Relations

    The Services may from time to time include the ability for you to submit questions to certain types of professionals, including but not limited to attorneys and accountants (the "Professional Members"), and even request that specific professionals respond to your questions. A communications exchange within that aspect of the Services may give rise to a professional-to-client relationship, such as an attorney-client relationship, or representation of limited scope and duration between you (the "client") and the professional that responds to your submitted question.

    The Professional Members are not employed by Illumeo. No such information contained on the Website or provided through the Services, constitutes an endorsement of any particular professional or a guarantee of any personal and professional qualities or characteristics of a professional or any advice or opinion he or she may render. Illumeo does not verify nor warrant or guarantee that every individual who holds him or herself out as a professional is in fact registered to provide professional advice in the jurisdictions which he or she may claim.

    However, if a professional-to-client relationship does arise through any Services, the scope and duration of any professional-to-client relationship or representation between the Professional Member and client arising through an exchange of communication via the Services is limited by the subject matter and nature of the exchange. The scope of this limited professional-to-client relationship or representation extends only to the substance of the submitted question. The Professional Member is under no duty to further investigate, follow-up, review, pursue, take further action, or to continue to represent the client. The duration of such professional-to-client relationship or representation is presumed to end as soon as the responding Professional Member provides their last answer or follow-up communication in the exchange. You acknowledge and understand that in limited circumstances, Illumeo may be required or permitted by law to disclose such communications.

    If an attorney-client relationship does arise through any Services, the scope and duration of any attorney-client relationship or representation between the attorney and client arising through an exchange of communication via the Service is limited by the subject matter and nature of the exchange. The scope of this limited attorney-client relationship or representation extends only to the substance of the submitted question. The Professional Member is under no duty to further investigate, follow-up, review, pursue, take further action, or to continue to represent the client. The duration of such attorney-client relationship or representation is presumed to end as soon as the responding attorney provides the last answer or follow-up communication in the exchange.

    As an attorney or any other professional, you agree and understand that any malpractice liability which may result from your use or provision of any Services is your sole responsibility and hereby waive, absolve, indemnify, and release Illumeo from any liability, loss, or damage resulting from any malpractice claim arising directly, indirectly, consequentially, or historically from any contact, content, communication, advice, consultation, or representation made using any Services as a conduit. You further agree and understand that in accepting this license, you release, absolve, and indemnify Illumeo from responsibility or liability for loss or damage of any kind, including legal or attorney's fees, incurred by you or your clients or prospective clients as a result of any conflict of interest.

    To notify Illumeo, Inc. of Content that infringes your rights (other than copyright violations in which case please click here) or is otherwise unlawful ("Specified Content"), you must send a notice to the Illumeo, Inc. Content Complaint Manager by mail, e-mail, or fax, and provide the following information:

    • Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
    • A description of the Specified Content that your claim either infringes your rights or is otherwise unlawful, specifying which parts of it you believe infringe your rights, or are unlawful, and which parts you believe should be removed;
    • A description of the exact location of the Specified Content on the Web Site;
    • In the event you believe that the Specified Content infringes your rights, a statement specifying in detail the rights you assert, and why the Specified Content infringes them;
    • (In the event you believe that the Specified Content is otherwise unlawful), a statement specifying in detail which laws you believe are being breached, and why the Specified Content does so;
    • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are damaged by the Specified Content or authorized to act on such person's behalf; and
    • Your electronic or physical signature (as appropriate).

    When we receive a notice that complies with the above requirements, we will evaluate the information you provided (including, if appropriate, forwarding the notice to, or otherwise contacting the source of the Specified Content), and if appropriate in our judgment, remove or disable access to the Specified Content. In such case, we may notify the source of the Specified Content of your complaint and our action taken. In some cases, if the source of the Specified Content provides us with information indicating that the Specified Content has been removed wrongly, we may reinstate the Specified Content. Our take-down and re-instatement procedures are and remain at our sole discretion.

    You may want to seek the advice of independent legal counsel before filing a notice or responding to a notice filed by someone else.
