Center for Legal Solutions ADR Profiles|
Terms and Conditions of Use
The Center for Legal Solutions, Inc. ("Center"), a Georgia Non-Profit Corporation, allows dispute resolution professionals to profile their practice under the terms and conditions outlined in this document. ADR Profile Program Participants accept these terms and conditions by participating in the Program.
1. Requirements for Participation
To participate in the ADR Program, neutrals must be registered with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution or Members of the State Bar of Georgia actively practicing dispute resolution privately. The Center encourages broad participation in its ADR Program in order to reflect the diversity of neutrals and dispute resolution.
The Center shall maintain a searchable directory of neutrals profiled. The Directory will be available on the Center's web site: www.centerforlegalsolutions.org and may also be available in printed form upon special request. Profiles may include contact information that a member of the public may use to call, e-mail, fax or otherwise communicate with the profiled neutral.
3. Responsibility for Profile Content
The Participant shall have the primarily responsibility for verifying the accuracy of his or her ADR Profile information and shall have the ability to create and modify profile items using the Center's web site. The Center may assist Participants with their Profiles. For example, the Center may help a Participant correct an item if the Participant is unable to modify her or her own profile using the Center's web site or process photographs for use on Profiles.
4. Ethical Duties and Suspension of Profile
Information contained in Participant Profiles must comply with applicable laws and rules. The information conveyed in ADR Profiles may not be false, fraudulent or misleading. The Center reserves the right to suspend any Participant's participation in the Program to investigate any ethical matter and take appropriate correction action, which may include terminating Participant's participation in the Program.
5. Client Relationships
Participants must use their own professional judgment with respect to direct communications with prospective clients and/or employers that result from the Program. The Center expects that Participants handle such matters in a reasonable and responsible manner. Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, the Center reserves the right to suspend any Participant's participation in the Program to investigate any complaints regarding professional services and take appropriate correction action, which may include terminating Participant's participation in the Program.
6. Fees for Program Participation
There will be no charge for Basic ADR Profiles. Eligible neutrals may create basic profiles with a free login account. Neutrals may pay modest subscription fees to enhance their Profiles. Enhanced Attorney Profiles convey additional information and have greater visibility in response to user searches.
7. Term and Termination
Neutrals may suspend or terminate their participation in the Program at any time. The Center may suspend or terminate an account on the conditions and terms outlined in this Agreement.
While an account is suspended, no charges shall accrue and any remaining balance shall be applied when the account is reactivated.
8. Limitations on Liability
The Center does not guarantee that its ADR Directory will be available at all times. Interruptions to internet service may occur. The Center is not responsible for errors in Profiles and does not promise or guarantee to correct errors in Profiles, including misspelled words, grammatical errors or broken links. The Center does not guarantee or promise that participation in the Program will provide Participants any certain benefit. Whether a referral will profit a participant is subject to a number of variables. The parties agree to attempt to resolve any disagreement or dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement through direct communications. The parties understand and agree that adversarial proceedings, including litigation, are expensive and time consuming. In no case, dispute or controversy arising out of this Agreement shall Participant be entitled to more than a refund the total fees that the Participant has paid the Center for participation in the Program. Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to confer upon any person other than the parties hereto and their respective successors, legal representatives and assigns, any rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement. In entering into this Agreement, and in providing services pursuant hereto, the parties have the status of independent contractors and nothing contained herein shall contemplate or constitute any agency, employment, special or fiduciary relationship.
