MOBILEX PROVIDES A GENERAL SUMMARY OF AMERICAN LAW IN SELECT AREAS, BUT DOES NOT COVER FOREIGN LAW; EVEN WITHIN THE U.S., THE LAW OFTEN DIFFERS FROM STATE TO STATE. THEREFORE, IF YOU DESIRE ASSURANCE WITH REGARD TO ANY ISSUE PRESENTED IN THE APPLICATION, YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON MOBILEX, BUT INSTEAD CONSULT A LICENSED ATTORNEY IN YOUR AREA. BAER CROSSEY VENTURES, LLC IS NOT A LAW FIRM, AND NEITHER WE NOR THE APPLICATION OR THE MOBILEX SERVICES PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE OR SERVICES. YOUR PURCHASE OR USE OF MOBILEX DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US AND YOU. YOU ARE REPRESENTING YOURSELF WHEN YOU USE THE APPLICATION AND THE MOBILEX SERVICES. MOBILEX DOES NOT KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AND THE INFORMATION IT PROVIDES MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE TO YOU OR SUITABLE FOR YOUR NEEDS. FURTHERMORE, THERE MAY BE GAPS AND INACCURACIES IN MOBILEX, ESPECIALLY AS THE LAW CHANGES. BAER CROSSEY MAKES NO WARRANTY, AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE, THAT ANY INFORMATION OR ADVICE CONTAINED IN THE APPLICATION OR THE MOBILEX SERVICES WILL BE ACCURATE, CURRENT, CORRECT, COMPLETE OR FIT FOR YOUR PARTICULAR PURPOSES.
The MobiLex Services are available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old. If you are under 13 years of age, you may not download the Application or use the MobiLex Services.

8. Copyright and Other Intellectual Property Infringement
As Baer Crossey asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others, and requires its users and customers to do so. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any User Content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C § 512(c)(3) for further detail).
Baer Crossey’s designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is Copyright Agent, 1700 Sansom Street, Suite 701, Philadelphia, PA 19103, email@example.com. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
Baer Crossey has a policy of terminating the account of, or denying access or use of the MobiLex Services to, in its sole and absolute discretion, any user who repeatedly infringes the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. Baer Crossey shall have no liability for any action taken pursuant to this Section.
Baer Crossey may terminate your access to all or any part of the MobiLex Services, or block or disable your access or use of the Application, at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. Without limiting the foregoing, Baer Crossey may terminate your access to all or any part of the MobiLex Services, or block or disable your access or use of the Application, if (a) Baer Crossey believes that you have breached any provision of the Agreement (or have acted in manner which shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Agreement); (b) Baer Crossey is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Application to you is, or becomes, unlawful); (c) Baer Crossey is transitioning to no longer providing the Application to users in the state or country in which you are resident or from which you use the Application; or (d) Baer Crossey believes that your use of the Application may infringe or violate the rights of a third party or subject Baer Crossey to civil or criminal liability. Termination may result, in Baer Crossey’s sole discretion, in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your account. If you wish to terminate your account and this Agreement, you may do so at any time by following the instructions on the Site. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, and miscellaneous terms, shall do so. If your MobiLex Services account is cancelled or terminated for any reason, you will no longer be able to access information you have stored under your account.
