Updated April, 2021
The following Supplemental Terms of Service (“Supplemental Terms”) apply to the LegalNature (“we,” “us,” or “our”) services described herein, including, but not limited to, the Business Filing Services, Registered Agent Service, and Passport Services (each a “Service” and collectively the “Services”). Each Service may be sold individually as a standalone product or bundled with multiple Services.
These Supplemental Terms are effective as of the date you accept them by purchasing, using, or accessing a Service through LegalNature.com (the “Website,” which includes, without limitation, all web content and underlying software and technology). Please review these Supplemental Terms carefully as they include important details concerning your legal rights and obligations.
The contents of the Website are specifically intended to provide you with a convenient method to complete and use documents and are provided for public information purposes, not individualized legal advice. Our content and the information it contains is generally applicable in nature and may not always apply to your specific circumstances. Therefore, your use of the Website, its content, and the Services should never replace the advice of an attorney having experience in the areas of the law related to your needs. In the event you choose not to consult your own independent attorney when using the Website, its content, and the Services, you agree that you are acting as your own representative in all related legal matters. THIS WEBSITE AND THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” AND ARE USED AT YOUR OWN RISK.
In addition, as state and federal law is continually changing and being reinterpreted by courts and other government entities, LegalNature cannot guarantee that our content or the Services we provide will be up to date or free of inaccuracies, mistakes, or errors, legal or otherwise. LegalNature expressly disclaims any liability, loss, or risk incurred as a consequence, directly or indirectly, of the use and application of any of the contents of the Website or the Services. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONSULT A LICENSED ATTORNEY, ACCOUNTANT, AND/OR OTHER EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL, AS APPLICABLE, IN YOUR JURISDICTION REGARDING THE DOCUMENTS AND SERVICES YOU USE ON THE WEBSITE.
General Services Provided
When registering a business entity with your selected state, you are required to provide contact information for the registered agent that will receive service of process on your behalf. Depending on your state or jurisdiction, a registered agent may alternatively be known as an agent for service of process or a statutory agent. When you accept and purchase the Registered Agent Service from LegalNature, you authorize the third-party service provider indicated at the time of purchase, or any other third-party service provider we so choose and may change to from time to time with no additional cost to you, to act as your “Registered Agent” and to receive service of process on your entity’s behalf, including receiving legal notices, government communications, and items named by statute or other law (collectively, “Mail”). In addition, you authorize your Registered Agent to open, scan, upload, and transmit to LegalNature all Mail received by the Registered Agent on your behalf.
Service of Process
As part of our initiative to reduce paper waste in the workplace, all Mail will be electronically transmitted from your Registered Agent to LegalNature and uploaded directly into your LegalNature account for your review. We will also send an email to the email address listed on your account notifying you that you have received the new Mail in your account. It is your responsibility to access and review any and all Mail within your LegalNature account after your receipt of email notice from LegalNature. It is also your responsibility to keep your current, valid email address and phone number on file with LegalNature at all times in order to ensure that you receive notice of all new Mail and other Service-related communications we send you. You may request hard copies of any Mail you receive, and, if you so choose, may issue a standing order to receive all Mail in hard copy form (in addition to the electronic form automatically uploaded to your account). However, please note that, for each item of physical Mail we send to you, we will charge you a $10 fee for processing and shipping. You agree that LegalNature or your Registered Agent may voluntarily choose to forward your Mail in hard copy form to the business address we have on file for you; however, you will only be charged the processing and shipping fee for the hard copies you request. LegalNature or your Registered Agent may require you to sign for or otherwise acknowledge your acceptance of any Mail forwarded to you.
Unauthorized Use of Services
Except as may be otherwise specified in these Supplemental Terms, your Registered Agent Service is limited to receiving and forwarding Mail for service of legal process in accordance with the statutory requirements of your jurisdiction. You may not use the address of your Registered Agent as a business or mailing address for purposes other than complying with your jurisdiction’s rules for service of process unless otherwise expressly permitted by the Registered Agent. Your Registered Agent will have no duty to forward any items to you other than Mail according to these Supplemental Terms, and neither LegalNature nor your Registered Agent assumes any liability to you for loss of any unauthorized items received regardless of whether you consented to receiving such items at your Registered Agent’s address. LegalNature and your Registered Agent may request reimbursement from you for any costs incurred for receiving unauthorized items on your behalf. In addition, you agree not to represent in any manner, whether in writing, orally, or otherwise, that the Registered Agent's address is your address for any purpose other than receiving service of process Mail. This includes, without limitation, representing or suggesting that your Registered Agent's address is an address for receiving business communications or a physical address that third parties may visit for any purpose other than submitting Mail. Except where required by law, you agree not to list the Registered Agent's address on any public media or forum that may be accessed by third parties, including any website or marketing media.
You acknowledge and agree that errors in Mail delivery, whether by electronic transmission or physical delivery, may occur. LegalNature and the Registered Agent will not be held liable for Mail or notice of Mail sent or delivered to the wrong recipient. In such cases, if and when error is brought to LegalNature and/or the Registered Agent’s attention, we will attempt to notify you of the error and remedy the situation as promptly as possible.
Failure to Accept Mail
You agree to bear all costs and damages (legal, consequential, and equitable) that may result from your refusal or failure to accept Mail delivered to you, whether by electronic transmission or physical delivery, through the Registered Agent Service. This includes, but is not limited to, shipping costs, administrative costs, third-party fees or charges, legal damages, consequential damages, and equitable damages.
Please note that all sales of the Registered Agent Service are final, and in no event will we provide a refund of your purchase. ALL ASSOCIATED REGISTERED AGENT SERVICE FEES ARE NONREFUNDABLE. If you are not satisfied with your service, please contact us at 888-881-1139 or [email protected] and a customer service representative will attempt to resolve your issue. We are also unable to refund any money paid by you or on your behalf directly to third parties through the Website.
IN THE EVENT THAT YOU FAIL TO PAY ANY REGISTERED AGENT SERVICE FEES OWED TO US, INCLUDING RENEWAL TERM (AS DEFINED BELOW) CHARGES, WITHIN SIXTY (60) DAYS OF RECEIPT, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INSTRUCT OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER TO RESIGN AS YOUR REGISTERED AGENT. AS A THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER, YOUR REGISTERED AGENT MAY CHOOSE TO RESIGN AS YOUR REGISTERED AGENT FOR ANY OR NO REASON AT ALL. RESIGNATION MAY CAUSE YOUR BUSINESS ENTITY TO FALL OUT OF GOOD STANDING WITH THE STATE IF YOU DO NOT APPOINT A NEW REGISTERED AGENT. FAILURE TO APPOINT A NEW REGISTERED AGENT MAY ALSO RESULT IN ADDITIONAL COSTS, PENALTIES, TAXES, AND OTHER NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES. In the event of resignation, your Registered Agent will provide you with any required notice under state law and will follow the necessary steps with your state office.
LegalNature may also increase its fees for the Registered Agent Service by giving you notice of the new fees at least two weeks before the beginning of each successive one-year term (each a “Renewal Term”). In the event that you do not cancel your Registered Agent Service and fulfill your obligations under Section 9, you will be deemed to have accepted the new fees for the upcoming Renewal Term. Please note that your failure to remit timely payment to LegalNature for each Registered Agent Service Renewal Term when due will result in a $50 fee to your account for each instance.
Cancellation and Termination
You may cancel the Registered Agent Service at any time by emailing [email protected]or by phoning 888-881-1139 during our normal business hours. Once your Registered Agent Service has been cancelled, LegalNature and our third-party service providers will cease to provide you with the Registered Agent Service and your Registered Agent will no longer be responsible for acting as your Registered Agent. In such case, in order to continue to conduct business, you will be responsible for submitting the appropriate documents required by your state for appointing a successor Registered Agent. Before we stop billing you for the Registered Agent Service, LegalNature reserves the right to require that you submit to us written proof that your business has formally changed its Registered Agent with the state or has been formally dissolved with the state. You agree to promptly comply with any LegalNature request necessary to effect the resignation or change of your Registered Agent, including completing, signing, and forwarding all requested documents to the appropriate state office. YOU AGREE TO PAY ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH the CHANGE or resignation of YOUR REGISTERED AGENT WITH THE STATE. Any state or other fees associated with changing or terminating your Registered Agent are your sole responsibility. Under no circumstances will LegalNature be liable for any damages or inconvenience that may result from the cancellation or termination of the Registered Agent Service. Upon cancellation or termination of your Registered Agent Service, you waive and release your Registered Agent from any continuing obligation to forward or re-mail Mail received on your behalf, and you agree to hold LegalNature, your Registered Agent, and any other third-party service provider harmless from any claim to the contrary. You acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to notify government agencies and any other relevant third parties of your new Registered Agent's address. Review the relevant state website for more information about changing your Registered Agent and any related fees. Please note that we do not offer full or pro rata refunds in the event that your Registered Agent Service is cancelled or terminated prior to the end of the current Registered Agent Service term. Regardless of whether you receive prior notice from LegalNature of an upcoming Billing Date or Renewal Term, it is your responsibility to cancel prior to your next Billing Date in order to avoid charges for the upcoming Renewal Term. In addition, LegalNature reserves the right to terminate your Registered Agent Service for any or no reason at all. For example, LegalNature may, without limitation, terminate your Registered Agent Service in the following circumstances: i) we do not receive full payment, including all associated fees, when due; ii) LegalNature learns that your business has been formally dissolved with the state; iii) you repeatedly fail to respond to our communications regarding your account; iv) you fail to provide accurate or complete information requested by LegalNature or your Registered Agent; or v) LegalNature learns that you have engaged in unauthorized use of the Registered Agent Service by using the Registered Agent's address as a business or mailing address for purposes other than complying with your state rules for service of process. We reserve the right to continue to provide you with the Registered Agent Service and to charge you with the related fees, including any applicable late fees, until you fully comply with your obligations under this paragraph.
You acknowledge and agree that LegalNature has no obligation to retain your Mail that has been previously forwarded or otherwise transferred to you. Upon termination of your Registered Agent Service, you may request copies of your Mail for up to thirty (30) days at your expense.
Dissolution of Your Entity
In the event that your entity is dissolved, either voluntarily or involuntarily, it is your responsibility to notify LegalNature of this dissolution by contacting LegalNature so that we may cancel the Registered Agent Service that is no longer needed. You may cancel the Registered Agent Service at any time online through your account dashboard, by emailing [email protected], or by phoning 888-881-1139 during our normal business hours. Until we are notified otherwise, your Registered Agent Service subscription will continue to renew and bill as described in this section.
Our “Business Filing Services” refers to all state business filings, Compliance Guard, the Annual Report Service, and all other one-time or continuing government filings LegalNature agrees to perform on behalf of your business as the incorporator, organizer, authorized representative, or third-party designee where applicable and using our own contact information, including, without limitation, our name, address, phone number, emails, and fax number. We will provide each Business Filing Service as described in these Supplemental Terms or otherwise in your order information at the time of purchase. We file only the documents or register only the entities described to you in your order and act as the incorporator, organizer, authorized representative, or third-party designee, where applicable. Our authority AS the INCORPORATOR, ORGANIZER, AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE, OR THIRD-PARTY DESIGNEE expires immediately upon our resignation or our completion of ordered services with no further ongoing responsibilities or liabilities. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AFFIRM YOUR UNDERSTANDING THAT LEGALNATURE, OR ANY AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF LEGALNATURE WHO ACTS AS YOUR INCORPORATOR, ORGANIZER, AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE, OR THIRD-PARTY DESIGNEE, DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A SHAREHOLDER, DIRECTOR, OFFICER, MEMBER, MANAGER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WITH DIRECT OR INDIRECT INTEREST, RESPONSIBILITY, MANAGEMENT, OWNERSHIP, OR LIABILITY IN THE BUSINESS.
State requirements for forming and maintaining a business entity vary widely and change frequently. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to ensure that all applicable government requirements for your business are being met at all times. Our Business Filing Services may only be used by those customers who have authority to act on behalf of the business entity receiving such services, including, without limitation, the business entity’s authorized accountant, advisor, affiliate, associate, agent, attorney, broker, consultant, CPA, director, employee, enrolled agent, independent contractor, manager, member, officer, owner, principal, representative, or tax professional. Communications related to LegalNature filings will be directed toward the business address and contact information we have on file. Please note that the business entity may be required to register in any state where it has a physical presence or conducts business according to that state’s foreign entity registration rules. While we may partner with third parties that provide tax or accounting advice or services, our Business Filing Services do not include such advice or services.
When we register a Limited Liability Company with a state government on your behalf, you authorize us to affix "LLC" to the end of your requested business name. For states that do not allow the "LLC" designator, we will affix "L.L.C." When we register a corporation or nonprofit corporation with a state government on your behalf, you authorize us to affix "Inc." to the end of your requested business name. If you prefer a different designator than those mentioned here, you must notify us of your preferred designator prior to when we submit your filing to the state.
In the event that you purchase an expedited business filing, we will use appropriate means in our discretion to expedite. This may include, but is not limited to, prioritizing your order over other, non-expedited orders received before yours and working with your state office to process your order more quickly.
Compliance Guard saves you the trouble of having to learn about and meet all of these requirements so that you can focus on running your business. Compliance Guard includes all of your required Secretary of State filings for one year, one amendment filing (should you need to update your information with the state), and all of the essential documents you might need for state compliance and record keeping, including meeting minutes, company resolutions, notices of meeting, and more. It does not include any applicable filing fees charged by your Secretary of State.
Annual Report Orders
By submitting your request for LegalNature to file an annual report (also known as annual certificates, annual statements, or statements of information), including any required initial report (collectively the “Annual Report Service”) for your business, you are authorizing LegalNature to act as your agent to complete and submit the report to the applicable state agency. We may choose to assist you with monitoring upcoming due dates for annual reports and filing the annual reports. However, you are at all times solely responsible for ensuring compliance with all government requirements and formalities necessary for your business. LegalNature guarantees that your annual report will be filed on time so long as you timely request this Annual Report Service at least thirty (30) days before any applicable deadline, provide us with all requested information, are in good standing with your state, and LegalNature has received full payment. By requesting LegalNature to file the annual report on your behalf, you are representing that you are in good standing with your state. IN THE EVENT THAT WE NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OR UPDATED PAYMENT INFORMATION AND ARE UNABLE TO REACH YOU AFTER TWO OR MORE ATTEMPTS, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FILE YOUR ANNUAL REPORT. THIS FAILURE TO TIMELY FILE YOUR ANNUAL REPORT MAY RESULT IN ADDITIONAL FEES, PENALTIES, TAXES, COSTS, EXPENSES, AND OTHER UNFAVORABLE CONSEQUENCES THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, SUSPENSION, REVOCATION, OR OTHER CHANGE IN THE STANDING OF YOUR BUSINESS; CRIMINAL CHARGES; AND RESTRICTIONS ON YOUR BUSINESS’S RIGHTS OR ABILITY TO CONDUCT BUSINESS OR ACCESS COURTS WITHIN YOUR JURISDICTION. IN THE EVENT THAT YOU PURCHASE THE ANNUAL REPORT SERVICE LESS THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE FOR SUCH ANNUAL REPORT, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE STATE WILL RECEIVE YOUR ANNUAL REPORT ON TIME, THOUGH WE WILL USE OUR BEST EFFORTS TO MEET ALL FILING DEADLINES.
If you cancel your Business Filing Service order after we have received payment but before we have made any attempt to file your document(s) with the applicable federal, state, or local government office, we will issue you a full refund less a $30 processing fee per document. However, EXCEPT WHERE YOUR BUSINESS FILING SERVICE ORDER FAILS TO BE FILED WITH THE APPLICABLE GOVERNMENT OFFICE DUE TO AN ERROR ON THE PART OF LEGALNATURE, LegalNature will not issue any refunds after we have submitted your document(s) for filing with the government. In the event that LegalNature has made a filing error, we will correct it for you as quickly as possible at no additional cost. In the event that we have not yet filed with the applicable government office and you need to make additions, deletions, or other changes to information you submitted for your Business Filing Service order, you will be charged a $30 fee for reprocessing for each document we update. If you are not satisfied with your service, please contact us at 888-881-1139 or [email protected]and a customer service representative will attempt to resolve your issue. We are also unable to refund any money paid by you directly to third parties through the Website.
Stock Shares and Par Value
When completing your Business Filing Service order form on the Website for incorporating C corporations or S corporations, LegalNature may provide a default number of shares of stock and a default par value for the stock. We provide you with the ability to change these default numbers when completing your order. Please note that changing these default numbers may result in a change in the filing fees and/or annual taxes owed to your state of incorporation. We recommend that you contact an attorney or tax professional if you have questions regarding the appropriate number of stock shares or par value of the shares.
Our business entity management platform allows users to manage their business entities through the Website within their LegalNature account. The platform hosts business entity information you provide and is a point of delivery for applicable Services, including, without limitation, any Business Filing Service and Registered Agent Service, purchased or subscribed by you. Our business entity management platform is integrated with our Services and may only be used by those customers who have authority to act on behalf of the business entity receiving such Services.
Your Business Entity Information
You, individually and collectively as an individual, entity, or third-party authorized or professional representative of another individual or entity, represent and warrant that any and all business entity information including, without limitation, data, text, document, image, graphic, audio, video, message, content, or other material you provide, submit, post, upload, or otherwise convey to us for use or display on the business entity management platform (i) is owned by you or authorized by the owner for your use on our Services and (ii) does not violate any applicable law or any intellectual property, privacy, or contractual rights of any third party.
Business Entity Calendar
For your convenience only, our business entity management platform includes a calendar populated with general notifications of potential upcoming state-level and entity-related obligations that may require your further attention to keep your business entity in good standing with the state. You agree, understand, and affirm that we are not responsible for any local, county, federal, licensing, permitting, industry-related, or tax-related notifications. YOU, individually and collectively as an individual, entity, or third-party authorized or professional representative of another individual or entity, agree and acknowledge that the BUSINESS ENTITY CALENDAR AND ANY AND ALL NOTIFICATIONS HEREIN ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS” AND ARE ONLY USED AT YOUR OWN RISK. LEGALNATURE MAKES NO GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE COMPLETENESS, ACCURACY, OR APPROPRIATENESS OF THE CALENDAR NOTIFICATIONS. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MEET ANY DEADLINE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THROUGH THE BUSINESS ENTITY CALENDAR OR NOT. YOU MUST CONDUCT YOUR OWN RESEARCH TO ENSURE FULL COMPLIANCE WITH STATE LAWS, FEDERAL LAWS, AND ANY OTHER REGULATORY AND GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY REQUIREMENTS. YOU ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY BUSINESS ENTITY COMPLIANCE AND LIABILITY WITHOUT ANY RELIANCE ON THE BUSINESS ENTITY CALENDAR AND ANY ASSOCIATED NOTIFICATIONS.
In the event that you wish to remove your business entity from our business entity management platform, you must do so by contacting LegalNature by emailing [email protected] or phoning 888-881-1139 during our normal business hours. Until we are notified otherwise, your business entity will continue to be hosted on the business entity management platform and all related Services with applicable purchase or subscription terms will continue to be renewed and billed as described in these Supplemental Terms.
Our Passport Service provides you with relevant information and helps you complete a U.S. passport application, U.S. passport renewal application, and other supplemental government forms that may be needed when applying for or renewing a U.S. passport. Our Premium Passport Service also provides a dedicated specialist to review your application for errors and guide you through the application process. LEGALNATURE DOES NOT SELL GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS. Our services are limited to assisting you with the application process. By using our services, you give LegalNature permission to send your personal information to third parties, but only for purposes of assisting you with the application process. The government passport forms and supplemental forms we help you complete may be obtained for no charge online at www.travel.state.gov. LegalNature takes no responsibility for the government's acceptance or rejection of your passport application.
Payment for each Service is due as directed in your purchase, typically at the time of purchase. You must provide a valid credit card or other payment information at the time of purchase. You specifically authorize LegalNature to charge your card for any additional services related to your original purchase of a Service that you request online or by phone, fax, or email. For each Service you receive that is provided on an annual, ongoing basis, including, without limitation, the Registered Agent Service, you will continue to receive and be charged annually, plus any associated federal, state, local, governmental, or regulatory agency fees, to the card we have on file for your account until such time as you cancel it or it is terminated according to these Supplemental Terms. If a charge made to your account is declined, LegalNature may make up to five attempts to bill that card over a thirty-day (30) period. If you believe that a problem has occurred with your Services, please contact us at 888-881-1139 or [email protected] and a customer service representative will attempt to resolve the issue if possible.
To ensure uninterrupted service, any ongoing Services you subscribe to, including, without limitation, the Registered Agent Service and Annual Report Service, will automatically renew for successive Renewal Terms at the end of the first year of service (the “Initial Term”). We will automatically attempt to bill you no earlier than two weeks prior to the beginning of each Renewal Term (the “Billing Date”). If you do not cancel before the Billing Date, LegalNature will charge the credit or debit card you provided with the original order or the card listed on your account. You must pay your Renewal Term charges in full when due and maintain an updated and active card on file for us to continue to provide the ongoing Services to you. We will, however, notify you prior to your automatic renewal in order to provide you with an opportunity to cancel or change your Services. Prior to billing you, we will also notify you of any increase in Service fees. Note that we reserve the right to increase any Service fee at any time without providing you with prior notice. LegalNature may, without notice, adjust your next Billing Date, the length of your current Initial Term or Renewal Term, or the date associated with your next Renewal Term. Unless we notify you otherwise prior to the Billing Date, the charge for the Renewal Term will be equal to or less than the charge for the applicable Service for the prior year.
Notice Prior to Renewal Term
As a courtesy, we may send a reminder email to the email address on your account prior to your Billing Date. LegalNature has no obligation to provide this notice. You acknowledge and agree that we have no obligation to send you this notice and that your failure to receive or read this notice creates no liability for LegalNature.
You acknowledge and agree to pay all fees related to your account in accordance with these Supplemental Terms and to continue to pay them as they are incurred until such time as you cancel the applicable Services or your account is otherwise terminated and all your obligations under these Supplemental Terms are fulfilled. A reduction in our fees will not result in any obligation for LegalNature to issue any pro rata refunds for the current year. In the event that you purchase additional Services, LegalNature reserves the right to align the subscription periods between the Services by charging you a prorated amount for the new Service. We will provide you with prior notice before making any such prorated charges. In the event we fail to receive payment in full, you agree to pay all reasonable collection costs plus interest at the rate of 1.5% per month.
In processing your order, you acknowledge that LegalNature pays all fees charged by the applicable federal, state, or local government office on your behalf. We collect such government fees to pay on your behalf and do not keep them as revenue. You agree to pay LegalNature for all applicable fees, including any unforeseen increases, charged by the applicable government office necessary for completing your requested order, and you acknowledge that such fees are nonrefundable. You further agree to pay all shipping and courier fees incurred by LegalNature when acting on your behalf to provide you with requested Services.
Cancellation and Termination
You may cancel any ongoing subscription Services at any time online through your account dashboard, by emailing [email protected], or by phoning 888-881-1139 during our normal business hours. Any state, shipping, or other fees that we necessarily incur in order to cancel your order are your sole responsibility. Under no circumstances will LegalNature be liable for any damages or inconvenience that may result from the cancellation or termination of your Services. Regardless of whether you receive prior notice from LegalNature of an upcoming Billing Date or Renewal Term, it is your responsibility to cancel prior to your next Billing Date in order to avoid charges for the upcoming Renewal Term. In addition, LegalNature reserves the right to terminate your Services for any or no reason at all. LegalNature may, without limitation, terminate your Services in the following circumstances: i) we do not receive full payment, including all associated fees, when due; ii) you repeatedly fail to respond to our communications regarding your account; or iii) you fail to provide accurate or complete information requested by LegalNature or your Registered Agent. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order you submit to us.
By submitting your order for Service with LegalNature, you represent that the information you supply LegalNature, with your order or otherwise, including billing and account information, is accurate and complete. You acknowledge that LegalNature is relying on all information you submit without verification as to its accuracy or completeness, and agree to promptly inform LegalNature of any updates, changes, or corrections to the information you provide us. You are solely responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, spelling, copyright, and legality of the information you provide LegalNature. Under no circumstance may LegalNature be held liable for the correction, damage, loss, or failure to store your information, and you agree you are solely responsible for any default judgments or other adverse consequence that may result from your failure to comply with this paragraph. We reserve the right to withhold or delete your information without notice. You agree that LegalNature may act in reliance upon any instruction or information you submit to us that meets the Website’s automated criteria or is otherwise submitted to LegalNature by you.
Updating Your Contact Information
In the event that your email address, phone number, or business address changes, it is your obligation to promptly update your information by changing it online in your account dashboard or contacting us at 888-881-1139. We reserve the right to terminate your Registered Agent Service should you fail to update this information within thirty (30) days of any change. You acknowledge and agree that neither LegalNature nor your Registered Agent is liable to you for damages resulting from your failure to update or provide accurate contact information to LegalNature.
Except as may be expressly stated in these Supplemental Terms, LegalNature is not responsible for advising, reminding, or otherwise assisting you with complying with any legal requirements, including without limitation, any required federal, state, or local laws, regulations, rules, government filings, or franchise tax or other taxes due. Any legal requirements for your business entity are your sole responsibility, NOT the responsibility of LegalNature.
If you are entering into these Supplemental Terms on behalf of a third-party individual, a company, or other legal entity, you represent that you have the legal authority to bind such entity, in which case the terms "you" or "your" will refer to both yourself and such entity. If you do not have such authority or if you do not agree with these Supplemental Terms, you may not sign up for or use the Services. If after your unauthorized order, purchase, subscription, use, or access we find that you do not have authority to bind the entity for which you claimed to represent, you will be personally responsible for the obligations in these Supplemental Terms and any order and subscription you placed, including, without limitation, the payment obligations. We may not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from our reliance on any instruction, notice, document, or communication reasonably believed by us to be genuine and originating from you and any authorized representative or contact of an entity using our Service. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document, or communication, we may, but are not obliged to, require additional authentication from you and the entity. You acknowledge that by submitting an order to LegalNature you are allowing us to sign paperwork, electronically or otherwise, on your behalf as an authorized representative whose title includes, without limitations, as appropriate, incorporator, organizer, authorized representative, and third-party designee.
Purchases by Authorized Representatives.
You agree to be bound to these Supplemental Terms as a principal for all purchases and subscriptions of Services on your behalf by an authorized agent or representative (e.g. without limitations, an accountant, advisor, affiliate, associate, attorney, broker, business partner, consultant, CPA, director, employee, enrolled agent, independent contractor, manager, member, officer, owner, principal, representative, or tax professional).
LegalNature partners with various third-party service providers to assist with providing you with Services or special offers, products, or other services. You acknowledge and agree that LegalNature does or may work with any third-party service providers and sub-providers of our choice to provide some or all of the Services. We identify the offers, products, and services provided by third parties at the time of your purchase, either directly or in the applicable terms and conditions. We reserve the right to change service providers at any time with no additional cost to you. We provide third-party service providers only with the information necessary for them to process your order and provide you with the requested Service(s). You acknowledge and agree that in order to receive the Service, special offer, product, or other service, LegalNature will share certain Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for you with the applicable third-party service provider. Third-party content may appear on this Website or may be accessible via links from the Website. LegalNature is not responsible for and assumes no liability for any mistakes, misstatements of law, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehood, obscenity, or profanity in the statements, opinions, representations, or any other form of content contained on any third-party website or in any third-party content appearing on the Website.

LegalNature may offer various promotional and trial Service memberships that are subject to these Supplemental Terms except as stated in the offers. You authorize us to verify your payment source by making a charge of up to one dollar ($1.00) for any promotional or trial membership that we may offer having no initial cost. AT THE COMPLETION OF A TRIAL MEMBERSHIP, UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO CANCEL, YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED TO BEGIN THE INITIAL TERM AND YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL RENEW AUTOMATICALLY AT THE END OF THE INITIAL TERM FOR SUCCESSIVE TERMS. You may cancel any Service at any time online through your account dashboard, by emailing [email protected], or by phoning 888-881-1139 during our normal business hours.
You, individually and collectively as an individual, entity, or third-party authorized or professional representative of another individual or entity, agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless LegalNature, including LegalNature’s parents, subsidiaries, owners, agents, representatives, partners, affiliates, successors, and assigns, against all claims, liabilities, judgments, damages, costs, refunds, reimbursements, and expenses (including attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses, whether or not litigation or arbitration occurs) we incur of whatever kind, without limitation; and any claim, including for personal injury or property damage, that may arise from i) these Supplemental Terms; ii) the Services you receive and any use or access of our Website and Services, including, without limitation, any copyright infringement claims that may arise from your Registered Agent performing duties in accordance with these Supplemental Terms; iii) the failure of any commercial delivery, courier, email service provider, online fax service, or other third party to provide services to you on time and without error; iv) your Mail becoming lost, damaged, or destroyed for any reason, whether or not due to LegalNature’s negligent or intentional act or omission; v) your failure to provide LegalNature with accurate and complete information with your order or when otherwise requested; vi) your act or omission related to any Services or notices we provide you, including, without limitation, any notices containing or regarding Mail, invoices, or service renewals; and vii) your violation of any law, statute, regulation, or rule, whether federal, state, or local.

Registered Agent Service Limitations
