- Attorney-Client Relationship
VICIS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DECLINE TO PERFORM LEGAL SERVICES REQUESTED THROUGH THE WEBSITE. NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP IS ESTABLISHED UNTIL AN ENGAGEMENT LETTER HAS BEEN EXECUTED BETWEEN YOU AND VICIS. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT USE OF THE WEBSITE, IN PART OR IN WHOLE, AND/OR COMMUNICATION WITH VICIS THROUGH THE WEBSITE, DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN AGREEMENT TO PERFORM SERVICES OR CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP.
- Engagement Process
Following the purchase of products or services on the Website but prior to entering into an executed engagement letter between you and Vicis we will review your request for services. If we are able to represent you as a client, we will send you an engagement letter to sign which contains the specific details of our engagement with you. This process typically takes two (2) business days to complete but may require more or less time depending on the complexity of your specific situation. Full execution of our engagement letter is required before we can deliver our services to you.
Your payment for services is considered a retainer and will be deemed earned upon completion of our engagement process described herein. Specific fees will depend on which services you select to purchase through the Website or as otherwise communicated by you to us.
A “Managed Privacy Compliance” subscription is a monthly or annual subscription service. Your subscription will start when Vicis completes our internal engagement process to accept you as a client and confirms receipt of your payment.
When you purchase a monthly subscription, our services will continue for a period of one (1) month. At the end of the monthly subscription period, you will automatically be signed up and billed for an additional subscription term of another month at then-current pricing, unless terminated as set forth herein.
When you purchase an annual subscription, our services will continue for a period of one year. At the end of the yearly subscription period, you will automatically be signed up and billed for an additional subscription term of one year at then-current pricing, unless terminated as set forth herein.
- Products and Services
Vicis may at any time discontinue, limit or otherwise prevent the sale of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. Descriptions of our products and services, including pricing details, are subject to change at any time without prior notice. Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.
These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by you or Vicis. You may terminate a current subscription by logging into your account and cancelling your subscription. Your subscription will terminate at the end of the then current term and your subscription will not automatically renew. You will not be refunded for any fees paid for the then current subscription term. For non-clients who are visiting the Website, you may terminate these Terms by immediately stopping any and all use of the Website.
