This agreement is effective as of the date you accept its terms by purchasing a SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan or accepting a free trial thereof (the "Effective Date"). If you sign up for a SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan, you accept these terms, conditions, and limitations. Please read this agreement carefully.
SELLERBASICS LEGAL DISCOUNT PLANS ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR ACCOUNTING, BUSINESS, TAX, OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL ADVICE OR SERVICES.
Incorporation of Additional Terms
SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan Membership; Assignment. We reserve the right to accept or refuse membership in our discretion. You may not transfer or assign your SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan or these benefits.
Benefits of SellerBasics Legal Discount Plans. SellerBasics Legal Discount Plans offer the following benefits according to the plan the Member is enrolled in (collectively, the "Plan Benefits"):
SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan Benefits. Paid membership in any SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan provides the following benefits:
Phone Consultations. Telephone consultations with a participating firm (the "Provider Law Firm"), during normal business hours, of up to one quarter (1/4) hour for each new legal matter (“Phone Consultation”). If the Provider Firm determines after the Phone Consultation that a follow-up consultation is necessary, it may, in its sole discretion, offer the Member a follow-up Phone Consultation at no additional charge.
Discounts for Additional Legal Services. If a Member engages the Provider Law Firm for services not included in the Plan, the Member is entitled to the following discounts:
SellerBasics Members have access to a menu of discounted flat fee legal services listed on the SellerBasics rate card, as it may be updated from time to time, at the specified discounted price for Members. The purchase of a flat fee service from the SellerBasics rate card entitles the purchaser to one (1) Phone Consultation and one (1) round of revisions. In the event the purchaser desires additional work or has further questions
beyond these limitations, additional work will be charged at the applicable discount on hourly rates provided in this agreement.
In the event the matter is not included in the rate card or, in the sole discretion of the Provider Law Firm, the matter is not suitable for flat-fee pricing, the legal services shall be provided at a twenty percent (20%) discount from the Provider Law Firm's standard hourly rates for representation, as such rates are reported to SellerBasics.
Additional Benefits for SellerBasics Premium Members. SellerBasics Members with paid membership in a SellerBasics Premium plan (“SellerBasics Premium Members” or “Premium Members”) shall receive the following benefits in addition to the Plan Benefits described above (together, “SellerBasics Premium Plan Benefits”):
Monthly Account Health Reviews. Review by a Provider Law Firm of Member’s Amazon Account Health and one (1) telephone consultation of up to one (1) hour concerning the Account Health review, at a scheduled appointment during normal business hours, to advise the SellerBasics Pro Member on any areas of concern and the implication of those provisions and their conformity to Amazon policy (“Premium Account Health Review”). If further legal services are required or requested by the Premium Member beyond those described in this subsection, such services shall be provided at the applicable discount provided in Section 3(a)(ii). Pro Contract Reviews are subject to all exclusions from Plan Benefits and any other limitations set forth in this agreement.
Monthly IP Claim or Suspension Credit. Premium Members are entitled to a $50 credit to be used toward IP claims or account / ASIN suspensions at a SellerBasics Provider Law Firm each month in accordance with the following:
Premium Members on Monthly Plans. Premium Members on a monthly SellerBasics Legal Discount Plan will receive access to their first monthly credit award on the date that their first payment for the applicable plan is received by SellerBasics, and will receive each additional monthly credit award on the first of each succeeding month for the duration of membership. In the event your payment method is declined or otherwise fails, you will have fifteen (15) days to correct the issue. If you fail to correct the issue within 15 days, all accrued credits will be lost and your membership may be cancelled pursuant to this agreement. If a monthly credit award is not used in its entirety in the month the credit was awarded, the balance will roll over and you will be able to use the credits along with any other unused credits for six (6) months from the date the applicable credit was awarded. Balance roll-overs are subject to a maximum balance of $300. If the balance in your account exceeds this amount, your oldest credit award(s) will be forfeited until your balance is $300 or less. There is no limit to the number of transactions you may apply your credits to. You may accumulate and use monthly credits toward any single transaction or transactions, subject to the limitations provided herein. Credits are nontransferable and may not be combined with credits from another SellerBasics membership. If you cancel your membership, any accrued credits will be immediately forfeited. If your monthly payment date is later than the date that you received your monthly credit award, and you used the credit award for that month before you cancelled your membership, you will be responsible for reimbursing SellerBasics for the amount of the credit award, and you expressly authorize SellerBasics to charge any payment method on file.
Premium Members on Annual Plans. Premium Members that have paid for a year of membership will receive immediate access to all twelve months of their monthly $50 credits in a lump sum totaling $600 on the date that their full payment for the annual membership is received by SellerBasics, and will receive an additional $600 lump on the date that payment is received for each annual renewal membership term. In the event your payment method is declined or otherwise fails, you will have fifteen (15) days to correct the issue. If you fail to correct the issue within 15 days, all accrued credits will be lost and your membership may be cancelled pursuant to this agreement. If the $600 credit award is not used in its entirety during the membership year the credit was awarded, the balance will not roll over into subsequent membership terms. There is no limit to the number of transactions you may apply your credits to. Credits are nontransferable and may not be combined with credits from another SellerBasics membership. If you cancel your membership, any accrued credits will be immediately forfeited.

Participation in a SellerBasics free trial provides the trial participant with a complimentary telephone consultation with a Provider Law Firm during normal business hours, of up to one quarter (1/4) hour during the trial period as specified in the free trial offer. Participation in a SellerBasics free trial does not entitle the participant to any other Plan Benefits not specified in this subsection, however, SellerBasics or the Provider Law Firm, each in its sole
discretion, may offer access to other Plan Benefits for the duration of the free trial. SellerBasics free trials are subject to all other limitations or exclusions set forth in this agreement.

If you do not have such authority or if you do not agree with this agreement, you may not sign up for or use any Plan. If after your purchase we find that you do not have authority to bind the entity for which you ordered, you will be personally responsible for the obligations in this agreement and the order you placed, including without limitation, the payment obligations. We are not liable for any loss or damage resulting from our reliance on any instruction, notice, document or communication, reasonably believed by us to be genuine and originating from an authorized representative of your company.

You acknowledge and agree that this notice is provided as a courtesy only, and we are not obligated or required to provide such notice.

On termination of this Agreement, all related rights and obligations under this Agreement immediately terminate, except that (d) you will remain responsible for performing all of your obligations in connection with transactions entered into before termination and for any liabilities that accrued before or as a result of termination.
You have the right to cancel your membership before the applicable renewal period by emailing or calling our Customer Care team. After such cancellation, your membership will remain active until the end of then-applicable period.

Participating attorneys reserve the right to make independent professional judgments regarding such presentations. SellerBasics will in no way influence or attempt to affect the rendering of legal services of the participating attorneys.
Release of Information. Any member that submits to SellerBasics any complaint or inquiry concerning a Provider Law Firm’s services, authorizes the Provider Law Firm to disclose to SellerBasics any and all communications between the Member and Provider Law Firm, including communications that could be deemed privileged or confidential, and any other relevant information, to investigate or respond to such complaints or inquiries.
