Plan-18 is Not a Law Firm and Does Not Provide Legal Advice
Plan-18 provides a platform for legal information and self-help. The information provided by Plan-18 along with the content on our website related to legal matters ("Legal Information") is provided for your private use and does not constitute legal advice. We do not review any information you provide us for legal accuracy or sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide opinions about your selection of forms, or apply the law to the facts of your situation.
If you need legal advice for a specific problem, you should consult with licensed attorney. Neither Plan-18 nor any Legal Information provided by Plan-18 is a substitute for legal advice from a qualified attorney licensed to practice in an appropriate jurisdiction.
Your use of the Services does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and Plan-18, or between you and any Plan-18 employee or representative. Unless you are otherwise represented by an attorney, including a Participating Attorney, you represent yourself in any legal matter you undertake through our Services.
Plan-18 is not a "Lawyer Referral Service". Plan-18 does not endorse or recommend any attorney nor does it make any warranty as to the qualifications or competency of any attorney.
We want you to be 100% satisfied with our Services. If you are less than satisfied or believe there has been an error in billing, please contact immediately so that we can help you resolve the issue.
Plan-18 reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Services, for any reason and at any time without prior notice.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by contacting us.
However, if Plan-18 is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally, then as a condition to your use of the Services we mutually agree to resolve such dispute through binding arbitration under the auspices of JAMS Alternative Dispute Resolution (" JAMS"). JAMS will administer any such arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, San Jose (CA), or any other location as to which we may then mutually agree. A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute.
Any notice to Plan-18 should be addressed to Plan-18, 922 Gretchen Lane, San Jose, CA 95117. Any notice to you shall be sent to your address as set forth in Plan-18's records of account or such other legal address as Plan-18 is able to identify.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate our disputes as provided above, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
• Either you or Plan-18 may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in San Jose, California or in any United States county where you live or work without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
• Plan-18 may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any unauthorized use or abuse of the Services without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
• Plan-18 may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
• In the event that the agreement to arbitrate provided herein is found to be inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, then as a condition to your use of the Services we agree that any resulting judicial proceedings will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Jose California, and by your use of the Services you expressly consent to venue and personal jurisdiction of the courts therein.
Plan-18 may, in the future, make changes to these provisions regarding dispute resolution and arbitration by providing notice in accordance with the section of these Terms entitled "Modifications" below. You may reject any changes made by sending us written notice. Such notice must be given within thirty (30) calendar days of the notice of modification to the following address: Plan-18, 922 Gretchen Lane, San Jose, CA 95117.
These Terms will be governed by California law except for its conflicts of laws principles.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Plan-18 with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms.
Waiver, Severability and Assignment
Plan-18's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Plan-18 may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, posting on our blog or on this page). By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
If you have any questions or concerns, please Contact Us at any time.
