TERMS OF SERVICE FOR COURTSOLUTIONS LLC
CourtSolutions: "Telephonic Court Appearances in a Whole New Way."
BY ACCESSING OR USING OUR SERVICES, WHETHER AS A PAYING OR FREE USER, ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF AND/OR YOUR COMPANY, YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY AND ACCEPT THE TERMS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY OF OUR MOBILE APPLICATIONS. YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO PRINT OR DOWNLOAD THESE TERMS AND TO REGULARLY CHECK THIS WEBSITE TO OBTAIN TIMELY NOTICE OF ANY CHANGES TO TERMS, WHICH MAY OCCUR FROM TIME TO TIME AND AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE.
Standard Charges. The Standard Charge for all users (other than registered and approved court personnel or pre-approved indigent users) is US$70.00 (unless otherwise established with a particular court) per call per judge per day plus any applicable taxes or other charges as set forth herein (the “Access Fee”). If you make a reservation but do not actually call in, you are not charged. We place a "hold" on your credit card when you make a reservation; but, if you do not call in, you are not charged. If you have two calls with two different judges on the same day, you will be charged the Access Fee two times: first when you join your call with the first judge and then when you join the call with the second judge. If you have multiple calendar items before a judge on the same day, make a single reservation and list all of your matters and you will only pay a single Access Fee. If a judge continues or adjourns a hearing from one day to the following day, CourtSolutions may automatically create a reservation for you for the following day. By dialing into the call on the following day, you are agreeing to pay the Access Fee for the following day. You also agree that you are solely responsible for any carrier charges for SMS or text messages you receive from CourtSolutions. Charges for use of Services (as defined below) are payable in full upon initial entry by you into the CourtSolutions phone system. All fees are non-refundable, including without limitation if you join a call and your matter is not called. If you have an approved reservation but do not call in, you are not charged the Access Fee; however, you will appear on the Judge's list of approved participants.
For Fee Waived Accounts, if you do not notify us in advance of you making an appearance that you are eligble for a Fee Waived Account, no refunds will be provided from prior to us being notified that you are eligble for a Fee Waived Account; however, in limited circumstances and in management's sole discretion, you may be provided with a refund for charges incurred up to 30 days prior to the date of notification that you are eligble for a Fee Waived Account.
1. Services and Pricing.
(a) Sale of Services. You will pay CourtSolutions for use of the services provided by CourtSolutions (the “Services”) at the “Standard Charges” and according to the terms of this Agreement (as amended from time to time, this “Agreement”). PRIOR TO USING ANY SERVICES, YOU AGREE (i) TO BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR REGULARLY REVIEWING COURTSOLUTIONS’ STANDARD CHARGES, WHICH ARE AVAILABLE ON THE COURTSOLUTIONS WEBSITE, www.Court-Solutions.com, AND (ii) TO OBTAIN TIMELY NOTICE OF CURRENT STANDARD CHARGES, INCLUDING ANY INCREASES OR OTHER CHANGES. For the avoidance of doubt, and notwithstanding any other provision herein, no notice of any kind, written or otherwise, is required for changes to Standard Charges.
(b) Taxes and Other Charges. CourtSolutions reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change or institute new or additional rates, charges and/or fees for access to or use of the Services or to change its payment terms or billing methods at any time. CourtSolutions may suspend Services if CourtSolutions determines, in its sole discretion, that your previous payment record so warrants such a change. You will pay, and CourtSolutions reserves the right to collect in arrears, all sales, use, consumption, goods and services, excise or other taxes (other than taxes based upon CourtSolutions net income), fees, surcharges, charges for universal support mechanisms (including without limitation any and all federal or state Universal Service Fund charges) or other charges of any nature whatsoever, now or hereafter imposed or assessed on CourtSolutions, by any foreign, federal, state/provincial, county or local government authority upon or with respect to the Services provided. If you claim exemption from charges, you must provide CourtSolutions with a current, valid exemption certificate from the applicable regulatory authority.
(c) Credit Cards. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, for any fees and/or charges paid by credit or debit cards, you agree if payment is not received by CourtSolutions from the card issuer or its agents, you will pay all amounts due upon demand by CourtSolutions. Each time you use the Services, or allow or cause the Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that CourtSolutions is authorized to charge your designated card in connection with the Services at the then effective Standard Charges. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT COURTSOLUTIONS MAY SUBMIT ADDITIONAL CHARGES AS SET FORTH HEREIN FOR USE OF THE SERVICES EACH MONTH, QUARTER OR YEAR, AS APPLICABLE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT, WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, until you provide prior written notice (in accordance with CourtSolutions’ verification procedures, as may be established by CourtSolutions from time to time in its sole discretion) that you terminate this authorization or desire to change your designated card. Such notices will not affect charges submitted before CourtSolutions reasonably could act on such notice. When you provide your card information to CourtSolutions (or its designated licensees or subcontractors), you represent and warrant to CourtSolutions that you are the authorized user of your designated card. You agree to promptly notify CourtSolutions of any changes to your designated card account number, its expiration date or your billing address, as applicable, and you agree to notify CourtSolutions if such designated card expires or is cancelled for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt, the designated card account holder is responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by such account holder or anyone that uses the card. WITHOUT LIMITING ANY OTHER REMEDY HEREIN, IF RECURRING FEES ARE NOT PAID IN A TIMELY MANNER, OR IF COURTSOLUTIONS IS UNABLE TO PROCESS YOUR TRANSACTION(S) USING THE DESIGNATED CARD INFORMATION PROVIDED, COURTSOLUTIONS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SUSPEND AND/OR TERMINATE THE SERVICES. You understand that when you make a reservation through CourtSolutions, CourtSolutions will place a "hold" on your credit card for the amount of the Access Fee. If you do not dial in for that reservation, the "hold" will be released by the credit card processing agency in accordance with the credit card processing agency's policies and timeframes.
(d) Disputes. Past-due balances not reasonably disputed in good faith as herein provided shall be subject to an interest charge of 1.5% per month computed from the due date of each invoice previously issued, or the maximum rate legally permitted, whichever is less, and you shall pay any collection costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, and other expenses incurred by CourtSolutions to collect any such sums due under this Agreement. You must notify CourtSolutions of any charge disputed in good faith, with supporting documentation, within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice, or you will be deemed to agree to such charges and no adjustments to charges or invoices will be made. You remain responsible to pay charges not reasonably disputed in good faith as herein provided by the due date.
(e) Beta Versions. With respect to any Beta version of any of the Services (the “Beta Services”) made available to you for purposes of evaluation and feedback, you acknowledge that the Beta Services may contain bugs, errors and other problems and are provided to you “as-is.” To the extent permitted by law, CourtSolutions disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to you of any kind with respect to the Beta Services. You further acknowledge the importance of communication between CourtSolutions and you during your use of the Beta Services and hereby agree to receive related correspondence and updates from CourtSolutions and its suppliers. In the event you request to opt-out from such communications, your use of the Beta Services may be canceled. You also hereby acknowledge that CourtSolutions has not made any representations, promises or guarantees that the Beta Services will ever be announced or made available to anyone in the future and that CourtSolutions has no express or implied obligation to you to announce or introduce the Beta Services. With respect to the Beta Services, this subsection shall supersede any other terms and conditions contained herein, but only to the extent necessary to resolve conflict. In addition to and without limiting any other rights or remedies CourtSolutions has, if CourtSolutions determines, in its sole discretion, that you have violated any conditions of and/or limitations on the Beta Services, CourtSolutions reserves the right to immediately terminate the Beta Services.
(f) Registration Requirements. To use the Services, you must be 18 years or older, if an individual, and must complete the sign-up/registration process, which includes, without limitation, providing a valid and verified email address and cell phone number, agreeing to be bound by CourtSolutions’ required terms applicable to the use of the Services and meeting such other requirements as CourtSolutions directs. You agree to maintain and update your registration information as required to keep it current, complete and accurate. If CourtSolutions discovers that any of your registration information is inaccurate, incomplete or not current, CourtSolutions may suspend and/or terminate your right to access and receive the Services. CourtSolutions further retains the right to reject a registration application in its sole discretion and without a requirement to provide a reason. Without limiting the foregoing, CourtSolutions may refuse the Services to any individual or entity who has cancelled any number of previous accounts. Only registered users may schedule conferences using the Services. Under all circumstances, any registration request is subject to the approval of the applicable Court in its sole and absolute discretion.

By using the Services, you acknowledge that any interruption in the Services, including disconnections or the inability to access the dial in number or website, will not constitute cause warranting the delays or interruptions of court proceedings.

You must review the court's docket, website and/or announcements to remain informed of any updates. Such changes are in the sole discretion of the court.

Despite prior approval, you will immediately cease and desist using the CourtSolutions Marks upon notice from CourtSolutions for any reason. Any use by you of the CourtSolutions Marks other than as described above will constitute a breach of this Agreement for which, in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity, CourtSolutions may terminate this Agreement.

8. Miscellaneous. This Agreement may be deemed executed by use of the Services, which will be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same document. Captions/headings are for convenience only and not to be used in construing this Agreement. If any provision herein is held by a court to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, the remaining terms shall not be affected or impaired thereby, and the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the allocation of risk.

Each party enters into this Agreement solely for its own benefit and purpose, and except for CourtSolutions’ suppliers, this Agreement in no way confers any rights upon, or imposes obligations on either of the parties toward, any third party, including but not limited to any recipient of content transmitted through the Services. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties’ successors, legal representatives and authorized assigns. CourtSolutions may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement to an entity that either now or in the future controls, is controlled by or is under common control with CourtSolutions or as a consequence of merger, acquisition, change of control or asset sale. You may not assign your rights and obligations under this Agreement without CourtSolutions’ written consent. All sections in this Agreement intended to survive any cancellation, termination, expiration or suspension of this Agreement will so survive. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed therein, without regard to any conflicts or choice of law rules. The parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of New York County, New York to resolve any disputes arising hereunder.

There are no other verbal agreements, representations, warranties, undertakings or other agreements between the parties. If you require use of a non-CourtSolutions-form purchase order in connection with any of the Services to be performed hereunder, you hereby acknowledge and agree that to the extent such purchase order contains any pre-printed or other terms and conditions, such terms and conditions, whether in addition to or in conflict with this Agreement, shall have no effect whatsoever and this Agreement shall govern the relationship between CourtSolutions and you.

YOU AGREE TO BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR REGULARLY REVIEWING THE COURTSOLUTIONS WEB SITE TO OBTAIN TIMELY NOTICE OF ANY SUCH AMENDED TERMS AND COURTSOLUTIONS’ THEN-CURRENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS. BY USING THE SERVICES AFTER POSTING OR DELIVERY OF AMENDED TERMS, YOU WILL BE DEEMED TO HAVE ACCEPTED AND BE BOUND BY SUCH AMENDED TERMS. No such amendment by CourtSolutions shall serve to constitute a default or termination by CourtSolutions of this Agreement, nor shall such amendment serve to be a basis for your termination of this Agreement. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or any Schedule hereto, this Agreement may only be amended or modified, in whole or in part, by a written instrument signed by the parties to this Agreement.
