A. As a condition of your use of this Site, you warrant that (i) all information supplied by you on this Site is true, accurate, current, and complete, (ii) if you have a Theorem account (“Registered User”), you will safeguard your account information and will supervise and be completely responsible for any use of your account by anyone other than you, and (iii) you are 18 years of age or older. Theorem does not knowingly collect the information of anyone under the age of 18. We retain the right at our sole discretion to deny access to anyone to this Site and the content we offer, at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, for violation of these Terms.
B. Subject to the terms hereof, including “limitations on use” in Section 5 (Limitations on Use) below, and those of the Agreement; you may access and use for Subscriber’s internal business purposes during the time period specified in the Agreement: (i) the Site, (ii) any Site content made available to you (“Content”); and (iii) any Theorem software applications made available to you hereunder (each, an “Application”) for the purpose of accessing the Site through that Application. Except as otherwise provided in this User Agreement or the Agreement, no other access or use rights are granted to you and any use beyond what is explicitly authorized in this User Agreement and the Agreement is a material breach of both documents.
C. Use of Theorem Marketplace Ecosystem.
You may not use any Site Content or other Theorem Content, or derive any data from the Site or Content, to create a commercial business or service that would serve as a substitute for the Theorem Services (any and all services to be offered by Theorem).
2. NOTICES AND DISCLAIMERS.
A. Theorem is not a law firm, and does not provide legal representation or advice. Rather, Theorem is a technology company that provides businesses (in particular law firms, corporate legal, risk, and compliance departments) technology tools and services to work efficiently and cost-effectively, including providing technology-based information, consulting and intermediation services and business tools and an online platform through which professionals, including Theorem’s clients and experts may gather information and communicate among themselves and with each other. Neither your use of this Site nor your becoming a Registered User (defined below) creates an attorney-client relationship between Theorem and you, your organization or any other party. Theorem, in the platform, Apps, articles, sample contracts, and other materials provided on this Site, is not providing legal advice.
B. Although this Site may offer opportunities for Theorem's clients, attorneys, experts, and service providers to identify each other and enter into relationships with each other, you acknowledge and agree that (i) except as Theorem separately agrees in writing, it is not a party to any agreement between third parties or between you and any third party; (ii) no attorney, expert or other service provider is an employee or agent of Theorem and Theorem does not supervise, direct, or control any third party or the services or products that third party promises to deliver; (iii) Theorem shall have no liability or obligations under or related to any agreement between third parties; and (iv) Theorem makes no representations on the reliability, capability, or qualifications of any third party, or the quality or timeliness of any services to be provided by any third party or the results of the third party’s services, and Theorem disclaims any and all liability relating thereto.
4. REGISTRATION; FREE AND PAID SERVICES
B. From time to time, Theorem may allow you to access and use services on a free trial basis. THE SERVICES PROVIDED DURING THE FREE TRIAL PERIOD ARE PROVIDED AT YOUR SOLE RISK, “AS-IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.
C. From time to time, Theorem may also allow you to try certain products or services that are not generally available to clients (“Beta Services”). Beta Services will be clearly designated as beta, pilot, limited release, preview, non-production, for information or similar designation. Beta Services are provided for evaluation purposes and not for production use, are not supported, may contain bugs or errors, and may be subject to additional terms and discontinued at Theorem’s sole discretion. BETA SERVICES ARE NOT CONSIDERED “SERVICES” HEREUNDER AND ARE PROVIDED AT YOUR SOLE RISK, “AS-IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND

6. EXCEPTIONS TO USE LIMITATIONS. Subject to the terms of this User Agreement and those of the Agreement, you are entitled – if you are an Authorized User (as defined in the Agreement) -- to incorporate de minimis amounts of data (i.e., insubstantial amounts of data that have no independent commercial value and are not separately marketable by Theorem) derived from the Content into presentations and reports for use solely in connection with Subscriber’s internal business operations. Specifically, you have the right to distribute in the ordinary course of Subscriber’s business limited extracts of data derived from the Content to Subscriber employees, affiliates, clients and/or prospective clients, in the form of charts, graphs, graphics, pitch books, presentations, statistics, research reports and other reports; provided, however, that in each case: (i) Theorem retains sole ownership over any Content incorporated therein; (ii) data derived from the Content is not used to create a commercial business or service that would serve as a substitute for the Theorem Services (any and all services to be offered by Theorem); (iii) the distributed presentations, reports, etc., are not issued on behalf of any unaffiliated third party; (iv) the following source attribution is included: “Source: Theorem Legal Technology Services, Inc.”; and (v) any publication of aggregated data is first approved in writing by Theorem. If you would like to obtain this permission, you must e-mail Theorem a copy of your proposed publication at support@Theoremlegal.com. In addition to the foregoing, if you are an Authorized User and the terms of the Agreement so provide, you may use the functionality of the Site to daily download and store the amount of Content, if any, authorized in the Agreement; provided that you do not store any such information for longer than the end of the Term. Neither downloading nor printing shall be done if the result would be that either you or the Subscriber compiles more than an insubstantial portion of the Theorem database from which such Content is pulled.
8. DATA CONTRIBUTIONS. Anyone may contribute data or information to Theorem. Such data contributions are voluntary; however, anyone who makes them, or otherwise confirms data, (each such person, a “Contributor”) acknowledges that Theorem may use any data so contributed without restriction, unless a specific written agreement to the contrary has been entered into by Theorem. In contributing such data, the Contributor hereby represents and warrants that: (i) its contribution does not breach any agreement, any intellectual property right (at law or in equity) or any law to which it is subject; (ii) Theorem is granted a perpetual, irrevocable license to use such data for any purpose]; and (iii) Theorem may use those data for any purpose, without limit or constraint. You are not authorized to use the Site to offer, sell or purchase securities, or to commit any illegal activity. You may not contribute data or otherwise use any Application, the Site or any Content in order to offer or sell securities, solicit investors or condition the market for any offer or sale of securities. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, Contributors that represent venture capital, private equity or other investment funds (each, a “Fund”) may contribute historical Fund performance data even if the Fund is offering securities as long as the Fund satisfies its obligations to ensure it has a pre-existing, substantive relationships with solicited investors and otherwise complies with this User Agreement. The data underlying the Content has been obtained from sources that are believed to be reliable but neither Theorem nor any third party providing such data guarantee the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the underlying data, any Content or any projections based thereon. You must verify all information. Any securities referenced in the Content are more fully described in documents prepared by their issuers, and you are strongly urged to request and review such documents directly from such issuer(s).
9. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS. All right, title and interest (including all copyrights and other intellectual property rights) in the Applications, the Site and Content belong to Theorem and/or its suppliers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Theorem does not claim an ownership interest in (a) derivations of Content that you create through your authorized use of the Site if such derived work is sufficiently transformed so that any Content on which it is based or that forms one or more inputs into it cannot be readily understood, reverse engineered, disassembled or decompiled by a someone reasonably knowledgeable of legal or financial services or reasonably skilled in legal or financial services software applications; or (b) any data or other content not originally sourced from Theorem, its affiliates, or any of their suppliers that is separately uploaded by Subscriber or its Users (as defined in the Agreement) onto the Site (e.g., custom entity records, custom text files, etc.) (all such data and content described in (b), collectively, “Subscriber Data”). Except as expressly provided in this User Agreement and/or the Agreement, nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring upon you any right, in the Applications, the Site or any Content. You agree that the Applications, the Site and Content are protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents or other proprietary rights and laws.

If you are seeking advice rather than information, you should instead obtain the services of an independent advisor. You understand and agree that: (i) any decisions you make using any Application, the Site or any Content are made solely at your own risk; and (ii) you will indemnify and hold harmless in any proceeding in law or equity Theorem, any of its affiliates and any of their directors, officers, employees and agents for any damages, liability, or other loss (including legal fees) arising out of or relating to any decisions of any nature you make or refrain from making based on your use of any Application, the Site, any Services and/or any Content.

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. IN NO EVENT WILL THE THEOREM PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, BASED ON, OR RESULTING FROM THIS USER AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE SITE, PURCHASES MADE ON THE SITE, THE APPLICATIONS OR THE CONTENT, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
