We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children, and children age 13 and under are not permitted to use our Services. You hereby acknowledge that you are considered an adult person within your jurisdiction and are capable of being legally bound by this Agreement.
Our Services require you to provide certain information, which is required to be provided timely and accurately. If you fail to provide timely and accurate information or to make timely decisions, then your intellectual property rights and/or rights in a registered entity may be impaired, abandoned or otherwise lost, affecting their value.
We are not responsible for your failure to communicate with us in the ways that we will provide to you, and you must insure that our communications do not get deleted or redirected to spam or elsewhere. You agree to promptly answer our questions and those of our agents and affiliates. You agree to promptly complete and return any and all forms required by us or our agents or affiliates including, without limitation, powers of attorney forms required to represent you before patent offices and trademark offices.
You agree to promptly update your contact information with us, whenever it changes, including, without limitation, your email address, telephone and mailing address. You agree to designate a person to be the point of contact in your organization, having the authority to make decisions and to bind your organization to the decisions that your organization makes and the payments authorized. You agree to update the contact person whenever necessary.
We attempt to negotiate flat fee rates with agents and foreign counsel on your behalf, but exchange rates and costs can vary from prices quoted. Also, additional fees and costs may be billed by foreign counsel for necessary services provided in response to a communication to the foreign counsel from a foreign office. You agree to pay agents and foreign counsel the amounts invoiced in the currency invoiced according to the method required by agents and foreign counsel. This may incur wire transfer fees or other costs not included in the original invoice. We will not be responsible for paying any amount to agents or foreign counsel for fees or costs, and your failure to timely pay invoiced fees or costs can cause complete loss of your rights in intellectual property.
If we agree to communicate with foreign counsel on your behalf, we will attempt to provide you with adequate notice and reminders of the deadlines for these fees and costs, but you agree to be responsible for early payment and early decisions that do not push deadlines close to the point of losing your rights in intellectual property.
Invoices provided to you are estimates of the fees and costs, and you agree to pay any difference between the estimates and the actual fees and costs. An invoice is not an offer to provide services, and we are not bound to provide Services to you until payment is received for Services. Costs and fees change frequently. Failure to timely respond may cause costs and fees to increase, and you agree to pay the additional cost and fees caused by any increase caused by your delay.
Delay in authorization or payment may lead to abandonment of your rights in intellectual property or may require additional fees for revival or reinstatement of rights, if available.
We may charge additional fees for services such as communicating with foreign counsel, communicating with you about foreign IP matters, and docketing due dates on your behalf. Our fees and the fees and costs charged by agents and affiliates are subject to change at any time and do fluctuate in actual practice based on exchange rates, availability and workload.
Failure to comply with the instructions on an invoice including, without limitation, due dates, payment instructions and communications may cause us to terminate our Services to you. If we terminate Services to you, we will not refund any amounts paid for subscriptions or Services already rendered. We will only refund any amounts that we are holding in trust for you for Services that have yet to be rendered and have been cancelled, and then we will only refund the portion held, less any costs and fees for Services already rendered on your behalf. You acknowledge that we seldom hold any fees and costs in trust. If you are not responsible for paying such fees and costs directly to our agents or affiliates, then we usually transmit such fees and costs after our financial institution indicates that your draft has cleared through your financial institution.
You agree that we, our agents and affiliates may issue a subsequent invoice if the fees or costs invoiced change between the time that the original invoice is paid and the fees or costs are paid to a patent office or trademark office.
You acknowledge that your delays in making decisions or prepaying invoices may cause abandonment of your intellectual property rights, the occurrence of late fees, an increase in costs for rushed work, overtime or fees for extensions of time to file late documents or translations.
You acknowledge that once instructions are given, cancellation of the instructions may not be possible. A fee will be incurred for any cancellation of instructions already given, based on the costs already incurred as a result of the initial instructions and the time and effort required to cancel the previously issued instructions. We may not agree to cancel previous instructions after foreign counsel or agents have received and acted on your instructions.
We offer no guarantees. We offer no guarantees that legal counsel or agents, whether foreign or domestic, will timely complete their work, and your sole recourse for any failure of legal counsel or agents to timely complete their work is with the legal counsel or agents, directly. We offer no guarantee that your patent or trademark will be granted, renewed or maintained. We offer no guarantee that our Services will help you to decide whether or not you should protect your intellectual property by registering, renewing or maintaining your intellectual property.
Agents and foreign counsel work directly for you, and our Services are limited to backup reminders and watch notices, in addition to those you and/or your legal counsel have put in place. We are happy to contact any legal counsel or agent appointed by you on your behalf to arrange for your patent or trademark services.
In most instances, you will make payment directly with the agents or foreign counsel, in advance. Those legal counsel and agents listed on our Services are independent third party providers. We do not endorse them, and we do not guarantee their services.
We may help to arrange for transfer of payments and currency conversion on your behalf as an additional Service to you, only after verifying your credit worthiness. We will not transfer any funds until our financial institution indicates that your funds have cleared your financial institution. This may cause delays in transfer of funds, and we encourage you to provide sufficient time for funds transfer and clearance or to make arrangements to pay foreign counsel or agents directly. We may use the services of a credit reporting agency, law firm or financial service provider in deciding whether to provide these services to you or in providing these services to you, and you agree and authorize us to use a credit reporting agency, law firm or financial service provider.
We offer no guarantee that your intellectual property has any value. We offer no guarantee that your pending application will be granted or registered by any patent office or trademark office. This is a matter for the offices to decide, and you should seek legal counsel from a registered agent or attorney in the appropriate jurisdiction to determine whether or not your application has merit in that jurisdiction.
You agree that if you enter into bankruptcy or have a change in your financial situation that we can cancel any Services, without prepayment and assurances that such prepayment will not be revoked by a court, trustee or receiver, and we can notify foreign counsel of your bankruptcy or change in your financial situation.
Not a Law Firm
Paradies IP is not a law firm, and we do not provide legal services. Agents and foreign counsel located in foreign jurisdictions and the United States of America may or may not provide legal services, depending on local law, rules and regulations. Often, patent agents provide patent services that are not legal services. Rules vary according to jurisdiction. In the United States of America, laws, rules and regulations governing the practice of law vary from state to state. Our Services are educational and administrative.
Your communications with Paradies iP Solutions LLC may not be protected by attorney-client privilege.
We may provide backup reminders and watch notices for your company that help you to know when it is time to take some action with respect to your intellectual property. We do not advise you on the legal implications of taking or not taking any legal action.
Our educational products and consulting teach you how to manage your own intellectual property, help your business to develop its own intellectual property plan, and help you to identify and create your own agreements to be used in your business to own, protect and grow the value of your intellectual property and to transfer that value to your brand. These education products and services are not legal services, and you should consult your own legal counsel about any agreement before entering into a legal agreement with anyone.
Since our Services are educational, consulting and administrative, we do not conduct conflict checks. Whether your agent or legal counsel conducts a conflict check will depend on the laws, rules and regulations of the jurisdiction applicable to your agent or legal counsel. While we may retransmit or receive copies of communications received from your agent or legal counsel, we use such communications only to update due dates in our system and to set up reminders for you, if we offer this service to you.
You agree not to assert the existence of any conflict, and we have the right to cancel Services to you if you assert the existence of a conflict, without reimbursing any amounts paid by you.
You agree not to assert that a conflict exists that would prevent any agent or foreign counsel from representing a third party. If you determine that a conflict exists with the use of any agent or foreign counsel, then you agree to find a different agent or foreign counsel. If you determine that a conflict exists with the use of any agent or foreign counsel after the agent or foreign counsel provides services to you, then you agree to have the agent or foreign counsel transfer your matters to a different agent or foreign counsel, without preventing the agent or foreign counsel from continuing to represent any other third party. In any jurisdiction where this provision is unenforceable or void, this provision shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain enforceable.
