PLEASE REVIEW THESE TERMS OF USE BEFORE USING THE WEBSITE. This is a legal agreement (the “Agreement“) between you (“You” or “Your”), Langon Law Group LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and Langon Colombia SAS, a corporate entity registered under the laws of the Republic of Colombia (collectively “Langon“) regarding Your use of Langon’s website and related non-legal services (collectively, the “Website“). By using the Website, You represent and warrant that You have read, understood, and agree to be bound by, the Agreement and Langon’s Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy“).

By using the Website, You further represent and warrant that You are (i) 18 years old or older; (ii) fluent in English; and (iii) otherwise legally qualified to enter into contracts under applicable law. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS AGREEMENT, OR DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY IT OR THE PRIVACY POLICY, OR ARE NOT LEGALLY QUALIFIED TO ENTER INTO CONTRACTS, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE WEBSITE.

Langon may, at any time and without further notice, revise this Agreement or the Privacy Policy by posting an amended version on the Website. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting. It is Your responsibility to review this Agreement and the Privacy Policy periodically. IF AT ANY TIME YOU FIND EITHER UNACCEPTABLE, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE WEBSITE.

Langon also may, at any time and without notice, modify or discontinue the Website. You agree that Langon shall have no obligation of any sort in connection with any modification or discontinuance of the Website.

4. Informational Purposes Only

Langon hereby grants You a nonexclusive license to download and display the Website, and to reproduce the content located thereon, in each case solely for Your personal, non-commercial use. Langon provides the Website for information purposes only. THE WEBSITE DOES NOT CONTAIN OR CONSTITUTE, AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS, LEGAL ADVICE OR OPINION.

5. No Attorney-Client Relationship

YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND LANGON. SIMILARLY, THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION TO AND FROM LANGON BY MEANS OF THE WEBSITE (INCLUDING VIA THE BLOG) IS NOT AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT COMMUNICATION. If You would like Langon to represent You, You should complete our Contact US form. If the matter in connection with which You seek representation involves other parties, be sure to list each and every one of them on the online case submission form. If Langon agrees to represent You, it will inform You by email or telephone, and will provide an engagement agreement setting forth the basis of the representation. Unless and until You have executed and returned that engagement agreement, and Langon has confirmed its receipt, no attorney-client relationship exists.

Unless an attorney-client relationship exists between You and Langon, You shall not represent to any third party, either directly or by implication, that You are represented by the Langon, or that Langon is in any way involved in Your matter. Without limiting the foregoing, unless an attorney-client relationship exists between You and Langon, You shall not copy Langon, or any attorney or employee of Langon, on any emails or letters in a manner that could reasonably be interpreted by any third party to mean that You are represented by Langon.

6. No Attorney-Client Privilege

BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A CLIENT OF LANGON, INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU TO LANGON MAY NOT BE PROTECTED BY THE ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE. It is possible that Langon already represents, or in the future may represent, a party whose interests are adverse to Yours. In that case, Langon may not be able to treat information received from You as privileged.

7. Prohibited Uses

You represent and warrant that You will not use the Website to:

  1. upload or transmit content that violates the privacy, intellectual property or other proprietary rights of any third party;
  2. transmit viruses, Trojan horses, worms, malicious code or other harmful or destructive content;
  3. violate this Agreement, the Privacy Policy or any applicable law or regulation, including without limitation laws designed to regulate unsolicited email or other electronic advertising;
  4. harm the goodwill or standing of Langon or any of its clients, partners, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors or representatives;
  5. attempt to probe, scan, test or violate the security features of the Website or of any associated system or network, or to obtain unauthorized access to materials or other information stored thereon; or

If we request registration information from You, You must provide us with accurate and complete information and must update the information when it changes. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your login names and passwords and You accept responsibility for all activities, charges, and damages that occur under Your account. If You have reason to believe that someone is using Your account without Your permission, You should contact us immediately by sending an email to [email protected] We will not be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from Your failure to notify us of unauthorized use.

Certain components of the Blog may allow You to submit or transmit audio, video, text, or other materials (collectively, “User Submissions”) to or through the Blog.

We respect Your ownership of User Submissions. If You owned a User Submission before providing it to us, You will continue owning it after providing it to us, subject to any rights granted in this Agreement and any access granted to others. If You delete a User Submission from the Website, our general license to that User Submission will end after a reasonable period of time required for the deletion to take full effect. However, the User Submission may still exist in our backup copies, which are not publicly available. If Your User Submission is shared with third parties, those third parties may have retained copies of Your User Submissions. In addition, if we made use of Your User Submission before You deleted it, we will continue to have the right to make, duplicate, redistribute, and sublicense those pre-existing uses, even after You delete the User Submission. Terminating Your login account will not automatically delete Your User Submissions.

We may refuse or remove a User Submission without notice to You. However, we have no obligation to monitor User Submissions, and You agree that neither we nor our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, or agents will be liable for User Submissions or any loss or damage resulting from User Submissions.

Except as provided in the Privacy Policy, we do not guarantee that User Submissions will be private, even if the User Submission is in a password-protected area. Accordingly, You should not provide User Submissions that You want protected from others.

You represent and warrant that You have all rights necessary to grant to Langon the license above and that none of Your User Submissions are defamatory, violate any rights of third parties (including intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy), or violate applicable law. Note that certain User Submissions may be subject to the terms of certain license agreements (e.g., Creative Commons licenses). Please determine whether such a license applies before using any User Submissions.

You must not use the Website to copy, publish or send material that is illegal or unlawful, or material that could give rise to legal action under applicable law.
