Ltd., a private limited company incorporated in Singapore, its subsidiaries and/or affiliates (“Founders Doc“) as incorporated from time to time. This includes but is not limited to:
    2. (collectively, the “Platforms” and the services provided through such Platforms, including any enquiries or orders submitted by you, the “Services“.)

    3. By Accessing Our Platforms, You Accept These Terms. Your access to and use of our Services and/or Platforms shall be deemed as an acknowledgement that:
      • you have read, understood and agree to be bound by the Terms, and your continued use of our Platforms amounts to acceptance of these Terms (as updated from time to time);
      • you agree that we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of these Terms, at any time. The latest version of these Terms will always be posted on our website, and when we amend or update these Terms (as updated from time to time), we will update the date listed above. It is your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes and you are responsible for ensuring that you comply with the latest Terms;
      • your continued use of the Platforms following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes;
      • you may use the Platforms provided that (i) you are over eighteen (18) years of age, (ii) you do not copy the Platforms or any part of them, (iii) you do not modify the Platforms or any part of them and (iv) you comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and court orders; 
      • if you are accessing and using our Services and/or Platforms on behalf of another person (whether an individual or a company), you confirm that you are duly authorised to agree to these Terms on behalf of such person and that such person shall be bound by these Terms; and
      • your use of the Services shall be subject to terms applicable to such Services and/or a separate written agreement between you and Founders Doc.
    4. Please do not use our Services and/or Platforms if you do not agree to these Terms. If you have proceeded to make payment and commence the use of our Platforms and/or Services, it will be deemed that you have accepted these Terms in full.

    5. Non-Reliance. While we take reasonable efforts to ensure that the information on our site is accurate, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, regarding the content on our Platforms including but not limited to their completeness, accuracy, timeliness, non-infringement of third-party rights or freedom from computer viruses. We do not provide legal or other specific advice on our Platforms. The content on our Platforms is provided for general informational purposes only. It is not intended to amount to legal advice or to be a substitute for advice from qualified counsel on which you should rely. Without limiting the foregoing, the information may not reflect recent developments in the law, may not be complete, and may not be accurate in or applicable to your jurisdiction. As legal advice cannot be given without consideration of all relevant information relating to your particular circumstances, you must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from taking, any action on the basis of the content on our site. Your use of any information contained in the content on our Platforms is entirely at your own risk. Of course, we will be happy to refer you to the appropriate professionals. 😊 
    6. Third-Party Platforms. The Platforms may include links to third-party platforms, such as social media and file-sharing sites to distribute our content. When you access such platforms, you are subject to third-party terms of use and privacy/security policies, which we recommend that you review. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, legality, practices, or availability of linked sites (including any related services, content, software applications, and other technologies). In addition, we are not responsible for any interruption of services, malfunctions, or security breaches involving these third-party sites. References or links in the Platforms to any commercial products or services, or the use of any trade, firm or corporation name do not constitute an endorsement by us.
    7. Our Status. We are not a law firm, but we are run by lawyer(s). If you need to be represented by a law firm, we are happy to put you in touch with our founder-friendly lawyers that can represent you or act on your behalf. You must remember that our Services are not intended to be a substitute for legal or other professional advice. 
    8. Authorised Areas of Practice and Certifications. While our legal counsel(s) practise law in the jurisdiction(s) in which our office(s) are located, each legal counsel from Founders Doc is licensed to practice only in the jurisdictions as indicated in writing to you from time to time. 
    9. No Solicitor-Client Relationship. Founders Doc enters into solicitor-client relationships with its clients only in accordance with certain procedures which include executing a letter of engagement, the consideration by Founders Doc of potential conflicts of interest and professional responsibility as prescribed by the Legal Profession (Professional Conduct) Rules 2015 of Singapore and such other applicable regulations as may apply to us from time to time. You agree that your access or use of our Platforms and/or Services, your receipt of information contained in our Platforms and/or Services, or your transmission of or communication of any information (whatever its nature, including but not limited to electronic mail to addresses on the Platforms) does not create a solicitor-client relationship between you and Founders Doc. Further, because a solicitor-client relationship will not result from any access or use of the Platforms by you or transmission or communication of information to us by you, such actions shall not prevent us from representing any other party, including without limitation any party with business or legal interests adverse to you.
    10. No Legal Professional Privilege. You agree that electronic mail sent by you to us will not be treated as confidential or invoke legal professional privilege; provided, however, that if you are an existing client of us and you send an electronic mail to us pertaining to a matter in which we then represent you, such electronic mail may be entitled to be treated as confidential or privileged. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that electronic mail and the internet are generally insecure mediums of communication, and we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any electronic mail sent to or received by it or any information submitted by you to us through the Platforms.
    11. No Confidentiality. You acknowledge and agree that, unless you are an existing client of us, any electronic mail, voicemail, telephone call, or other communication from you to us or any of our counsel or other employees, whatever the nature of such communication, shall not be treated as confidential. If you are not already an existing client of us, you should not communicate or transmit to us any information of a sensitive, confidential, or proprietary nature, as we make no guarantees or representations regarding the security, use, disclosure, or return of any information or communication received from you, absent an independent, explicit agreement between you and us.
    12. No Advertising or Solicitation. Any content or information on our Platforms is intended and provided for general informational purposes only, and is not intended to be, and should not be interpreted as, advertising or solicitation. 
    13. No Warranty of Results. Where applicable, the content on our Platforms may contain descriptions of matters in which we achieved a successful outcome for our current or former clients. The results of these matters were dependent on their specific circumstance, and are in no way intended to be predictive of future results, even in similar circumstances, or offer any type of guarantee or assurance of outcome. Further, such descriptions should not imply our continued or current representation of, or endorsement by, any clients mentioned. Any references in any content to past awards, designations, or rankings granted to or achieved by us should not imply the continued retention or future grant or achievement by us of such awards, designations, or rankings. 
    14. Complaints. If you wish to lodge a complaint about any content available on our Platforms and/or our Services, please contact us at administrator@foundersdoc.com.
    1. Your Responsibilities. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to ensure that:
