Terms of Use & Disclaimer

These Terms of Service are an agreement between you and Lean Ventures International Pty Ltd, trading as Lean Contracts (“Lean Contracts” or “we,“ “us” or “our” in this agreement). By using any of our products and services, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed to this agreement.

Anywhere in this agreement where we refer to your use of Lean Contracts or our “products and services,” we mean to include agreements downloaded via the Lean Contracts website.

We plan to update this agreement from time to time, so please check back regularly.

Please note: By using any of our products and services, you agree that you are at least 18 years old and legally able to enter into a contract.

Lean Contracts is Not a Law Firm

Lean Contracts provides basic legal templates created by qualified lawyers, aimed at early stage start-ups and those that service this market. But Lean Contracts is not a law firm, does not practice law, and does not give legal advice. We don’t act as your lawyers, are not a substitute for a lawyer’s advice, and don’t have any lawyer-client relationship with you.  All information you provide us, while protected by our Privacy Policy, is not protected by lawyer-client privilege.

We do not review any information you provide us for legal accuracy or sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide opinions about your selection of templates, or apply the law to the facts of your situation. In any action you take through our products and services, you are representing yourself.

Your Relationship with Lean Contracts

You understand that Lean Contracts is a do-it-yourself tool designed to help you create, receive and sign agreements, but that we’re not party to any of those agreements, and cannot provide advice or information about questions or disputes that may arise in connection with those agreements. We are not your lawyers, agent, representative or partner.

Agreement Modification and Management

You understand that actions you take outside of Lean Contracts can affect the terms and legal status of agreements you have created using our documents in ways that our version of your agreement will not reflect. For example, if you and another party sign an agreement based on a Lean Contracts template and later exchange emails modifying the terms of the agreement, then through your emails you may have amended the agreement in ways that the version in Lean Contracts does not account for.

Lean Contracts Templates are Subject to Change

We strive to keep our templates accurate and up-to-date, and may change them without giving you prior notice. Any such changes will affect future agreements only, and will not change the language of agreements that have already been signed.

Lean Contracts is for Australia and United Kingdom Only

Our products and services are intended for use in Australia and (for select templates, the UK) only.

Warranty Disclaimer

Because Lean Contracts is a do-it-yourself tool, the accuracy and sufficiency of agreements downloaded via Lean Contracts ultimately depends on user input, which input Lean Contracts does not review. Moreover, the law is a personal matter, and no general template like those supplied on the Lean Contracts website is appropriate in every circumstance. Therefore, we don’t make any claims about quality, accuracy, legal sufficiency, legal enforceability, or appropriateness of our templates for your needs. If you require legal advice or help on your specific situation, you should consult a qualified lawyer in your area.

We strive to keep our templates and information accurate. However, the law can change rapidly, and we cannot guarantee that all of the information contained in our products and services is current. Moreover, the law can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. We do not guarantee that our products and services are appropriate for your jurisdiction.
