- LEGALTOAST.COM ONLY PROVIDES A MEDIUM FOR INTERACTION
Legaltoast is an internet portal that facilitates communication between legal professionals and potential legal services users. Legaltoast acts as a venue for providers and consumers of legal services to exchange information to form a professional relationship eventually. Legaltoast does not guarantee that users will successfully find an advocate/lawyer/attorney through this system. Legaltoast takes no position and offers no opinion on when or if a lawyer-client relationship has been formed.
To provide a choice forum for lawyers and clients, Legaltoast does not include itself in the agreements between lawyers and clients’ actual description. Therefore, we cannot assure the completion of the agreement or the sincerity of either party. The user, and not Legaltoast, is only liable for estimating the sincerity, honesty, and loyalty of every person with whom the user communicates on this service.

- DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
A great danger for Legaltoast and all online systems operators is that we might be held accountable for our users’ wrongful actions. If one user libels another user, the injured user might blame us, even though the first user was really at fault. If a user uploads a program with a computer virus, and the other users’ computers are damaged, we might be blamed even though a user left the virus on our system. Suppose a user transmits illegal or improper information to another user. In that case, we might be blamed even though we did nothing more than unknowingly carry the message from one user to another. Accordingly, we need all users to accept responsibility for their acts and accept that another user’s act that damages them must not be blamed on us but only on the other user.
Although it is the goal of Legaltoast to provide users with reliable and quality systems, we may make mistakes or experience system failure from time to time. Such problems are inevitable in operating a system of this size. We would not be able to make this system available to users if we had to accept blame or financial liability for any usability problems, system failures or errors, or mistakes or damages of any kind. To continue offering and improving our service, Legaltoast must deny any warranties on this service and state that our liability for any problems connected with our system’s use is strictly limited.
The following disclaimers accomplish these needs:
1.1 Disclaimer of Warranties

Legaltoast expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. Legaltoast makes no warranty that the service will meet a user’s requirements, that the service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free.
Legaltoast makes any warranty as to the results obtained from the service’s use, the accuracy or reliability of any information obtained through the service, or that defects in the software will be corrected.
