By using our Services, you are accepting these Terms and agreeing that you will only use the Services in compliance with these Terms. You may only use our Services if you have the legal power to form a contract with Legacy Advisor.

2. CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
Legacy Advisor reserves the right to add, delete, and/or modify any part of these Terms at any time and in its sole discretion by posting a change notice on the Services.

If any change to these Terms is unacceptable to you, you should immediately cease using the Services. Your continued use of the Services following notice as provided above will constitute your binding acceptance of such changes.

5. THIRD PARTY CONTENT
5.1 Accuracy of Third Party Content
Legacy Advisor does not in any way verify the qualifications of funeral homes, cemeteries, or other service providers listed on the Services (the “Listed Providers“) and does not evaluate or control exchanges between Services users and any Listed Providers.
5.2 Third Party Services
5.3 Proposals; Relationship with Listed Providers; Release
As a Services user, you are able to submit a request to Listed Providers for additional information regarding select funeral related services within your geographic area (a “Proposal“). You are not bound to accept any of the Proposals submitted by any Listed Provider or any entity that receives your information via your Proposal request. A Proposal is not a binding offer and is not intended to create a contractual relationship between you and any Listed Provider.
You understand that any Listed Provider that submits a Proposal to you may keep your information and any other information provided by Legacy Advisor or received by them in the processing of your request for a Proposal, whether or not you begin a relationship with the Listed Provider. Further, if you supply your telephone number to us during the Proposal request process, you understand that you may, and consent to, receive sales and/or telemarketing calls from a live agent or artificial or pre-recorded voice at your provided phone number, dialed manually or by an automated telephone dialing system. You may revoke this consent by notifying a Listed Provider directly if you no longer want to receive communications from them.
THE LISTED PROVIDER THAT YOU CHOOSE TO ENGAGE, IF ANY, IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING THE AGREED UPON SERVICE TO YOU, AND YOU HEREBY RELEASE AND FOREVER DISCHARGE Legacy Advisor AND ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, AND ASSIGNS FROM, AND HEREBY WAIVE AND RELINQUISH, EACH AND EVERY PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, INCLUDING PERSONAL INJURIES, DEATH, AND PROPERTY DAMAGE, THAT HAS ARISEN OR MAY ARISE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY OUT OF OR RELATED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO ANY INTERACTION WITH, OR ACT OR OMISSION OF, ANY LISTER PROVIDER OR OTHER SERVICES USER.
6. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA“) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. In appropriate circumstances and at Legacy Advisor’s discretion, Legacy Advisor may terminate your access to and use of the Services if you become a repeat copyright infringer. If you believe in good faith that any content made available in connection with the Service infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the content be removed, or access to such content be blocked. Notices and counter notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see http://www.copyright.gov for details).
Currently, an effective notice must contain the following: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (iii) identification of the claimed infringing material or subject of infringing activity that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (iv) your address, telephone number, and, if available, your email address; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Notices and counter notices with respect to the Services should be sent to Legacy Advisor Solutions INC, Attn: Legal, 4616 25th Avenue N.E., Suite 480, Seattle Washington 98105, or by email at [email protected]

If you are required to indemnify Legacy Advisor under this section, Legacy Advisor will have the right to control the defense, settlement, and resolution of any Claim at your sole expense. You may not settle or otherwise resolve any Claim without Legacy Advisor’s express written permission.
11. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
11.1 Mandatory Arbitration
Any controversy, claim or dispute of whatever nature arising between you and Legacy Advisor arising out of or relating to the breach, termination, enforceability, scope, or validity of these Terms (a “Dispute“), will be resolved by binding arbitration in King County, WA, USA or other location agreed upon by Legacy Advisor. As between you and us, the prevailing party in any such Dispute will be entitled to recover all costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, at trial and on any appeal or petition for review, incurred in enforcing these Terms.
Neither party will commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to the provisions set forth below unless that party first gives a written notice (a “Dispute Notice“) to the other party setting forth the nature of the Dispute. The parties must attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute through discussions between the parties. If the Dispute has not been resolved as provided above, within sixty (60) days after receipt of the Dispute Notice, or if a party fails to participate in those discussions, then the dispute will be determined by binding arbitration.
Any Dispute shall be determined by arbitration in Seattle, Washington before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules or pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of infringement or misappropriation of another party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this agreement to arbitrate. Such claims shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts of King County, Washington. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, the Legacy Advisor shall not be precluded from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration (e.g., injunctive relief) from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
11.3 Class Action Waiver
Any dispute resolution proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action, unless both you and Legacy Advisor specifically agree to do so in writing following initiation of an action. This provision is not applicable to the extent such waiver is prohibited by law.
11.4 Right to Opt Out of Class Action Waiver and Binding Arbitration
If you do not wish to be bound by the individual arbitration or class action waiver provisions in this section, you must notify Legacy Advisor in writing within 30 days of the date that you accept these Terms, unless the law requires a longer period.
Except for the change notices described in Section 2, all notices required or permitted to be given under these Terms will be in writing and delivered to the other party by any of the following methods: (i) U.S. Mail or (ii) electronic mail. If you give notice to Legacy Advisor, you must use the following mailing address: Legacy Advisor Solutions INC, 6125 114th Ave NE, Kirkland, WA 98033, or by email at [email protected]
If we provide notice to you, we will use the contact information provided by you, as available. All notices will be deemed received as follows: (i) if by delivery by U.S. Mail, three (3) business days after dispatch, (ii) if by electronic mail, 24 hours after the message was sent, if no “system error” or other notice of non-delivery is generated. If applicable law requires that a given communication be “in writing,” you agree that email communication satisfies such requirement.
Legacy Advisor may suspend, limit your access to, or terminate your use of the Services at any time, with or without cause, in its sole discretion. Notwithstanding this section, these Terms will survive indefinitely unless and until Legacy Advisor chooses to terminate these Terms.
These Terms will be binding upon both your and Legacy Advisor’s successors and permitted assigns, and governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, without reference to conflict of law principles. These Terms contain all prior and contemporaneous agreements and understandings between the parties regarding its subject matter. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right, power, or privilege under these Terms will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, power, or privilege preclude any other or further exercise of any such right, power, or privilege. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect. The headings used throughout these Terms are merely descriptive and not operative and have no legal or contractual effect.
