1. Description of Services.
Our goal is to assist consumers in searching, finding and connecting with our member lawyers. CloudLaw is not a law firm, a referral service nor a recruiting service and neither is the Site. The Site is an interactive, computerized, attorney advertisement service owned and operated by CloudLaw. CloudLaw simply offers an online means for lawyers, law students, legal professionals and potential clients to exchange professional qualifications and contact information. You understand that CloudLaw does not endorse any of the lawyers or law firms (collectively referred to hereafter as a “Law Firm”) that advertise on the Site. It is your decision alone whether or not to work with any Law Firm listed on the Site. CloudLaw does not receive any portion of any Law Firm's fees for legal services paid by clients and any arrangements subsequently made by you. Your engagement of any Law Firm, are strictly between you and such Law Firm and do not involve CloudLaw in any way. 



2. Legal Notices. The ZEEKBEEK.COM website (the “site” or “service” or “services”) is provided by CloudLaw, Inc. Please carefully review the following basic rules that govern your use of the Site. Please note that your use of the Site constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to them, do not use the website, provide any materials to the Site or download any materials from it. CloudLaw reserves the right to update or modify these Terms at any time without prior notice to you, the user. Your use of the Site following any such change constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms as changed. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms of Use whenever you use this Site. These Terms of Use apply to the use of the ZEEKBEEK.COM site and the services offered at the Site and do not extend to any linked third party sites. In this Agreement, “we”, “us” and “ZEEKBEEK.COM” mean CloudLaw, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and “you” and “your” means the person using the service, your administrators, executors, successors and permitted assigns, as well as the organization or company on whose behalf you may be acting when you access this site. If you are using the Site or services on behalf of a business or organization, your assent to these terms constitutes a binding legal agreement that that business or organization for which you’re acting as a representative accepts these terms. Any such business or organization will hold harmless and indemnify CloudLaw, and its employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents and representatives, vendors and suppliers from and against any liability, damage, loss, cost or expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from or relating to its and your use of the Site and services or in violation of these Terms of Use. You understand and agree that we will treat your use of the Site and services offered thereon as acceptance of these terms.



3. Establishment of any Relationship. CloudLaw does not provide legal services. The Site and its services are simply advertisement for lawyers and potential clients seeking legal representation. All of the materials and information on the Site are provided for informational purposes only, and may not reflect current legal developments or variances in the law of different jurisdictions. The Site does not provide legal advice, and nothing on the Site should be construed as legal advice or used as a substitute for legal advice. In addition, nothing on the Site should be construed as a job offer or as a promise of a position with a Law Firm. The materials and information on the Site do not necessarily reflect the opinions of CloudLaw. The information on the Site is not guaranteed by CloudLaw to be correct, complete, up-to-date, reliable or error-free. The use of the Site and services offered at the Site does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship between CloudLaw and any third party. The use of the Site and services offered at the Site does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship or any other relationship (including, but not limited to, an employment relationship) between you and the attorney of any of the Law Firms, their partners, employees, agents or affiliates, or any other attorney associated with the Site. Additionally, the mere receipt of an email from or a "post" on the Site does not create an attorney-client or other relationship. As between you and a Law Firm, no relationship will be established until you and the Law Firm have formally mutually agreed to such relationship. You understand and agree that the Law Firm you engage to represent you is solely responsible for providing its services to you. You understand and agree that CloudLaw, its employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors or suppliers, or service providers shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your use or misuse of the Site or its services (including claims against third parties based on malpractice). You understand and agree that any claim arising out of your relationship with a Law Firm advertised on the Site shall be brought solely against such Law Firm. 



4. Attorney-Client Privilege and Conflicts.
a. Because CloudLaw does not provide legal services and because the Site is simply an interactive, computerized attorney advertisement service, your use of the Site and its services do not confer the benefits that are part of a typical attorney-client relationship. Accordingly, you should refrain from submitting any confidential information in any post or transmission through the Site or its services. The Site does not assume responsibility for the protection of confidential information, and it is possible that the dissemination of otherwise confidential information may occur through your use of the Site and its services. If information that would otherwise be subject to a legal privilege is posted or transmitted on the Site, no assurance can be given that the Site will maintain the privilege. The maintenance of confidentiality or legal privilege of any information posted or transmitted on the Site by you, including information transmitted or posted to any Law Firm, is your sole responsibility.
b. It is the sole responsibility of the Law Firm to investigate whether there is a conflict of interest such that the Law Firm cannot represent you. The Site does not perform a check for legal conflicts of interest or other conflicts that may exist on your part in connection with the engagement of a Law Firm. Determining whether a legal conflict exists is the sole responsibility of such Law Firm. You understand and agree that CloudLaw, its employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors or suppliers, or service providers shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way arising from any Law Firm’s failure to investigate potential conflicts of interest arising from your use of the Site and its services.

You may not upload or transmit any material that infringes or misappropriates any person's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or rights of privacy or publicity or disclose via the Site any information the disclosure of which would constitute a violation of a confidentiality obligation or fiduciary duty on your part.

You may not use the Site in any way that harms CloudLaw, ZEEKBEEK.COM, its members, licensors, affiliates or vendors, other users of the Site, or members of the general public. You may not manipulate identifiers to disguise your identity or the origin of any content or correspondence. You may not impersonate another individual or entity or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with an individual or entity. You may not use ZEEKBEEK.COM or any of CloudLaw’s other trademarks in any way to suggest an affiliation with or endorsement by CloudLaw of any individual, organization, product, or service.

The Site and all content on the Site, including without limitation, the software used to run the Site and all documents, videos, text, graphics, pictures, information and other content (collectively, “site materials”), are the proprietary property of CloudLaw or its licensors. You are granted a limited, revocable, non-transferrable, nonexclusive license (without the right to sublicense) to download and reproduce site material documents that are specifically made available on the Site for the general public to download (“public documents”), provided that any copyright and/or trademark notices on each page of a public document are reproduced in full and that you agree to comply with all such notices. Your limited license is subject to these Terms of Use and excludes: (i) any resale of the Site or any Site materials; (ii) any distribution, public performance or public display of any Site materials, other than sharing copies of public documents as provided by these Terms of Use; (iii) modifying or otherwise making any derivative uses of the Site or any Site materials; (iv) use of any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction, automated account registration, or account utilization methods; (v) decompiling, decompiling, disassembling or reverse engineering any Site software or Site architecture; or (vi) downloading (other than the page caching) of any portion of the Site, the Site materials (except as provided above) or any information contained therein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, content available to CloudLaw members only (“member documents”) may be subject to a separate agreement you may have with CloudLaw or to supplemental terms and conditions that are included in or accompany the member content, in which case you agree that such separate agreement or supplemental terms and conditions will apply to your use of the member documents. Any use of the Site or Site materials other than as specifically authorized herein (or in such separate agreement or supplemental terms and conditions) is strictly prohibited and will terminate the foregoing license.



7. Trademarks. CloudLaw, ZEEKBEEK.COM and their associated logos (collectively, the “CloudLaw Marks”) are trademarks or service marks of CloudLaw and/or its licensors and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of CloudLaw or the applicable trademark holder. The right to use any CloudLaw Mark can only be obtained via a separate trademark license agreement with CloudLaw and your compliance with any applicable CloudLaw Mark usage guidelines. You may not use any metatags or any other “hidden text” utilizing any of CloudLaw’s Marks without our prior written permission, nor may you purchase any CloudLaw Marks as advertising keywords. All other trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned on the Site and its services are the property of their respective owners. Our reference to any product vendors or service providers, products, services, processes or other information, whether by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise, does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof. 



8. User Submissions. CloudLaw does not want to receive confidential or proprietary information from you through the site. By posting, submitting or transmitting any material, information, communication or content (“content”) directly to ZEEKBEEK.COM’s site, you (a) agree that such content will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, (b) agree that CloudLaw will be under no obligation of any kind with respect to such content, and (c) grant to CloudLaw a perpetual, worldwide, nonexclusive, royalty-free, fully sublicensable and irrevocable license to reproduce, make derivative works from, use, disclose, and distribute the content to others without limitation. CloudLaw has no obligation to add authorship attribution of your content. You understand and agree to waive and forego asserting any moral rights you may have in the content. By submitting content to CloudLaw, you represent and warrant that you have authority to provide such content to CloudLaw and grant the rights to the content described above, and that doing so does not and will not constitute the infringement or misappropriation of the trade secrets or other confidential information of you or any third party. For the avoidance of doubt, without limiting the foregoing and except for content that originates from ZEEKBEEK.COM, we do not claim ownership of any content that is transmitted, stored, or processed in your account. You retain all ownership of, control of, and responsibility for content you generate and post.



9. User Discussion Forums.

CloudLaw, however, will have no liability related to the content of any such communications, whether or not arising under the laws of copyright, libel, privacy, obscenity, or otherwise. CloudLaw may edit or remove content on the Site at its discretion at any time.



10. User Representations. By using the Site and its services, you represent and warrant to CloudLaw that you are:

11. User Obligations. You agree that you:

a. will abide by CloudLaw’s Terms of Use as may be amended from time to time;
b. will provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site (“Registration Data”);

g. CLOUDLAW MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO YOU REGARDING THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT MAY BE GENERATED ON ACCOUNT OF YOUR LISTING YOUR PROFILE ON THE SITE, and
h. While CloudLaw does not charge any fees for the use of the features on the Site at present, CloudLaw reserves the right at any time, however, to impose fees in the future for your use of new features of the Site or certain services. Should CloudLaw elect to impose a fee for your use of a feature that is otherwise free at present, we will provide at least thirty (30) days advance notice through the website. All fees payable by you will be, except as may otherwise be set forth in this Agreement, non-refundable and will posted on the Site. CloudLaw reserves the right to amend its fee structure at any time. Upon the initial imposition of fees or any increase in fees during the term of any use of the Site by you, you may terminate your use of the Site.
12. Disclosures Regarding Attorney Advertising.
a. THE SITE MAY CONTAIN ADVERTISING MATERIAL OR LAWYER ADVERTISEMENTS. Some jurisdictions may consider the Site to be a form of advertising for legal services and as such may require specific disclosures. Please read the following carefully.
b. The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer's credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. Hiring a lawyer is an important process that should not be based solely upon advertisements.
c. Neither CloudLaw nor any of the Law Firms operate as a lawyer-advertising cooperative, lawyer referral service, prepaid legal insurance provider, or similar organization the business or activities of which include the referral of customers, members, or beneficiaries to lawyers for the performance of fee-generating legal services or the payment for or provision of legal services to the customers, members, or beneficiaries in matters for which they do not bear ultimate responsibility.
d. Before you decide to hire, or otherwise engage, with any of the Law Firms, ask them to send you free written information about their qualifications and experience. Additional information about the lawyers or Law Firms may also be obtained by contacting the Bar Association in the State in which such lawyers or Law Firms are licensed.
e. No representation is made that the quality of the legal or other services to be performed by the Law Firms is greater than the quality of legal or other services performed by other lawyers or other legal professionals. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or fields of practice do not mean that a lawyer or other legal professional is a specialist, expert, authority or is certified in a particular field of law, nor do such memberships or licenses mean that such a lawyer or other legal professional is more expert or competent than any other lawyer or other legal professional.
f. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist, expert or authority in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is more expert or competent than any other lawyer. We urge all potential clients to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. The fact that certain attorneys or firms concentrate their practices in the defense of bankruptcy cases (or any other field) is not meant to imply that they have gained any specific type of certification in these areas. Indeed, many states do not recognize certifications of specialties in the practice of law and explicitly state that any such certificate, award or recognition is not a requirement to practice law in those states.
g. Within the Site, we may include descriptions of successful representations or lawsuits brought by the Law Firms, or other attorneys not affiliated with the Site or Us. These descriptions are not meant to create any unjustified expectations that similar results can be obtained for others, for each case turns on its own specific factual and legal circumstances. No attorney can guarantee the success of a case and past successes even in very similar lawsuits do not mean that success in a subsequent case is guaranteed or even likely. Past success cannot be an assurance of future success because each case must be decided on its own merits. Results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. This site is intended to provide useful, factual information presented in a non-sensational, objective and understandable manner.
h. Except as otherwise noted on the Site the images and pictures on this site are not meant to represent or depict actual persons or events, but rather are merely provided for illustrative purposes only.
i. This Site is not intended for the purpose of advertising legal services to be performed in any state solely by the Law Firms, unless they are specifically licensed to practice in that respective State.
13. Additional State Specific Disclosures.
a. Alabama. 
No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
b. Alaska. 
The Alaska Bar Association does not accredit or endorse certifying organizations.
c. Florida.
i. The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide to hire any attorney, ask that lawyer to send you free written information about that lawyer’s qualifications and experience.
ii. Florida Rule of Professional Conduct 4-7.10 defines a lawyer referral service as “(1) any person, group of persons, association, organization, or entity that receives a fee or charge for referring or causing the direct or indirect referral of a potential client to a lawyer drawn from any specific group or panel of lawyers; or (2) any group or pooled advertising program operated by any person, group of persons, association, organization, or entity wherein the legal services advertisements utilize a common telephone number and potential clients are then referred only to lawyers or law firms participating in the group or pooled advertising program.” CloudLaw believes that for purposes of the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct only (the “Florida Rules”) the Site may be a lawyer referral service as defined in the Florida Rules. Rule 4-7.10(a)(10) requires that all lawyer referral services (as defined in the Florida Rules) must affirmatively state in all advertisements that it is a lawyer referral service. For those reasons, CloudLaw hereby affirmatively states, and for purposes of the Florida Rules only, that the Site is a “lawyer referral service.”
d. Hawaii. 
The Supreme Court of Hawaii grants Hawaii certification only to lawyers in good standing who have successfully completed a specialty program accredited by the American Bar Association.
e. Illinois.
 The Supreme Court of Illinois does not recognize certifications of specialties in the practice of law and that the certificate, award or recognition is not a requirement to practice law in Illinois.
f. Iowa. 
The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist or expert in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This notice is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. The filing of a claim or suit solely to coerce a settlement or to harass another could be illegal and could render the person so filing liable for malicious prosecution or abuse of process.
g. Kansas. 
Any attorney listings or other information pertaining to a particular attorney or Law Firm on this Site constitutes a paid attorney advertisement, and do not in any way constitute a referral or endorsement by an approved or authorized lawyer referral service.
h. Massachusetts. 
If a Massachusetts lawyer holds himself or herself out as “certified” in a particular service, field or area of law by a non-governmental body, the certifying organization is a private organization, whose standards for certification are not regulated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
i. Mississippi. 
Free Background information is available upon request to a Mississippi attorney. 
There is no procedure in Mississippi for approving certifying or designating organizations and authorities.
j. Missouri. Advertising material: commercial solicitations are permitted by the Missouri Rules of Professional Conduct but are neither submitted to nor approved by the Missouri Bar or the Supreme Court of Missouri. Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor the Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations.
k. Nevada. 
Neither the state bar of Nevada nor any agency of the State Bar has certified any lawyer identified here as a specialist or as an expert. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer's credentials and ability.
l. New Jersey. 
Any certification as a specialist, or any certification in a field of practice, that does not state that such certification has been granted by the Supreme Court of New Jersey or by an organization that has been approved by the American Bar Association, indicates that the certifying organization has not been approved, or has been denied approval, by the Supreme Court of New Jersey and the American Bar Association.
m. New Mexico.
Any certification by an organization other than the New Mexico Board of Legal Specialization does not constitute recognition by the New Mexico Board of Legal Specialization, unless the lawyer is also recognized by the board as a specialist in that area of law.
n. Rhode Island. 
The Rhode Island Supreme Court licenses all lawyers in the general practice of law. The court does not license or certify any lawyer as an expert or specialist in any field of practice.
o. Tennessee. 
Certifications of Specialization are available to Tennessee lawyers in all areas of practice relating to or included in the areas of Civil Trial, Criminal Trial, Business Bankruptcy, Consumer Bankruptcy, Creditor's Rights, Medical Malpractice, Legal Malpractice, Accounting Malpractice, Elder Law, Estate Planning and Family Law. Listing of related or included practice areas herein does not constitute or imply a representation of certification of specialization.
p. Texas 
Unless otherwise indicated, not certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
q. Washington. 
The Supreme Court of Washington does not recognize certification of specialties in the practice of law and that the certificate, award, or recognition is not a requirement to practice law in the State of Washington.
r. Wyoming. 
The Wyoming State Bar does not certify any lawyer as a specialist or expert. Anyone considering a lawyer should independently investigate the lawyer's credentials and ability, and not rely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise.
14. Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless CloudLaw, its employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents, vendors or suppliers from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from or related to your use or misuse of the Site and the services provided on the Site, including, without limitation, your violation of these Terms of Use, your infringement or that of any other subscriber or user of your account, of any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity. 



15. Limitation of Access and Removal of Access.
a. CloudLaw makes commercially reasonable efforts to maintain and provide access to its site and services and will endeavor to provide you with advance warning of restrictions to access due to routine website maintenance.

You further agree that CloudLaw, its employees, directors, officers, shareholders, affiliated companies, agents and representatives, vendors and suppliers will not be liable to you for the deletion or failure to store any of your content, information, or communications on the Site.
b. CloudLaw is not responsible for screening or reviewing content submitted to the Site or services. CloudLaw may temporarily or permanently remove any content on the Site or services at any time where CloudLaw, in its sole discretion believes the content is in violation of these Terms of Service or where CloudLaw is acting in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. You are advised not to use the Site or services as the exclusive storage repository for your content, information, or communications. CloudLaw recommends that you separately store all content, information and communications submitted to the Site and services on other secure servers or with reputable third party hosting services.
16. Termination. These Terms of Use are effective until terminated by either party. If you no longer agree to be bound by these Terms, you must cease use of this site and the services. If you’re dissatisfied with this site, its content, the services offered on the Site or any of these terms, conditions, and policies, your sole legal remedy is to discontinue using this site.

Termination for any reason shall not terminate any of your warranties or any of your indemnification and other obligations under these Terms of Use, except as specifically provided in these Terms. In the event of Termination of this Agreement by CloudLaw, you are prohibited from accessing the Site and its services using the identity or Registration Data of any other person.

These links are provided for your convenience and reference only. CloudLaw’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy do not apply to these sites. We do not control such sites and, therefore, we are not responsible for any content posted on these sites or the activities of these third parties.

If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to this site, you do this entirely at your own risk.

23. General. CloudLaw is based in the United States. CloudLaw makes no claims that the data or content on its site or its services are appropriate or may be downloaded outside of the United States. Access to the Site and services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Site from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction. These Terms are governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding that state’s conflicts of laws provisions. Any action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Site or services must be brought in the state or federal courts of the State of Delaware, and you consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Site or services must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. The provisions of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to these Terms, and you expressly waive all rights of application or appeal, if any, to non-U.S. courts in connection with any question of law. A party may give notice to the other party only in writing at that party's principal place of business, attention of that party's principal legal officer, or at such other address or by such other method as the party shall specify in writing. Notice shall be deemed given upon personal delivery or facsimile with proof of receipt of transmission, or, if sent by certified mail with postage prepaid, 5 business days after the date of mailing, or, if sent by international overnight courier with postage prepaid, 7 business days after the date of mailing. If any provision herein is held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force without being affected in any way. Further, the parties agree to replace such unenforceable provision with an enforceable provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the unenforceable provision.
