Terms of Service

Big Take-Aways

Sparrow IP PLLC’s (“Sparrow”) Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the sparrowip.com website, newsletters, and any other online or electronic services offered by Sparrow (collectively, the “Site” or “Service(s)”), excluding Sparrow’s legal services, which are governed by a separate engagement agreement executed solely with Sparrow clients. Please note that accessing the Site or Service(s), calling Sparrow, or emailing Sparrow does not create an attorney-client relationship, nor does it engage Sparrow’s legal services on your behalf, as noted in our Legal Disclaimer. Please also see our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy for further information about the conditions of interacting with Sparrow.

You must be eighteen (18) years old to use or access the Site or Services, without exception. You may refer to Sparrow’s Site and Services, but do not have permission to use them in any manner that implies an association, sponsorship, affiliation, endorsement, or other nexus with Sparrow, absent a prior written agreement to the contrary. This Site constitutes attorney advertising. Sparrow does not guarantee outcomes, and any past outcomes for our clients do not guarantee that future outcomes will be similar in nature. Sparrow provides legal services in the intellectual property area, but this practice focus does not indicate any certification of expertise.

Please read these Terms carefully, and let us know if you have any questions. By accessing our Site or Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms, our Legal Disclaimer, our Privacy Policy, and our Cookie Policy. Please note that one or more third-parties may assist with running the Site, and those services may use technology in addition to cookies to track user data and for other purposes.

You agree to comply with the applicable rules, regulations, requirements, policies, and notifications (“Guidelines”) of our third-party Site operator(s), which may be amended from time to time. Current Guidelines include the following links below. To the extent these Guidelines protect Sparrow, they are hereby adopted. You may not use the Site or Services in any manner that violates these Guidelines directly or indirectly. Sparrow will not be liable for any breach of these Guidelines, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the GDPR, or any other rule or regulation, and you agree to indemnify Sparrow to the full extent of the law including payment of any amounts due, including attorneys’ fees, if you violate these Terms including the Guidelines attached and incorporated by reference below.

Like all businesses, we will try to avoid any security issues. However, we can’t guarantee that security will not be breached. Please let us know as soon as possible if you see any communications from Sparrow that appear to be suspicious so we can investigate them in a timely manner.

Sparrow is an intellectual property law firm. It would not be wise to steal our IP. We take IP infringements seriously (as you can imagine). Please refrain from infringing, copying, or otherwise inappropriately using our brands, trade name, graphics, logo, images, text, and from otherwise stealing or infringing any content on our Site.

We may include links to third-party content on our Site. In that event, Sparrow has no liability arising from your use or access to any third-party website, service, or content, and you agree to access any third-party content at your own risk.

Our Site and Services are provided at no cost to you on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied. Sparrow expressly disclaims any and all warranties, conditions, or other assurances, including merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, course of dealing, or usage of trade warranties, conditions, or other assurances. We reserve the right to refuse Service, or terminate Service, at our sole discretion.

Sparrow shall not be liable for any damages, loss of profits, revenues, or any other sums resulting from its Site, its Services, and third-party content, any security issues, or for any other acts or omissions. In the event damage is attributed to Sparrow despite this express limitation of liability, any damages shall be capped at $50.00 USD. If a dispute arises under these Terms or regarding the Site or Services, you agree that the dispute will be resolved privately or through binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association in Seattle, Washington, United States of America, and you agree to jurisdiction/venue/forum in Seattle, Washington. These Terms, and access to the Site and Service, will be governed by the laws of the State of Washington, without consideration of its conflict of laws principles.

We may revise these Terms from time to time. If you want to stay current, please refer to our Site often. We will not be able to notify every visitor to the Site of changes, so check back if you have any questions regarding the current Terms.

These Terms, together with our Privacy Policy, Legal Disclaimer, and Cookie Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and Sparrow regarding the Site and Service as defined herein. If any provision is deemed invalid in any jurisdiction, that provision will be stricken or amended to the extent necessary to effect the intent of the original language in that jurisdiction, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect and that provision will remain unchanged in all other jurisdictions. Sparrow’s failure to assert any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Effective August 5, 2019
