TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE HOME > TERMS & CONDITIONS

1.

APPLICATION OF THIS TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1.1

The present terms and conditions govern and are incorporated into every contract made by UNGRIA INTERNATIONAL INC., a New Jersey corporation, (“UNGRIA”, “us", "we' and cognate terms) with clients (the “client” “you") for the provision of intellectual property related management services ("Services') and shall prevail over any terms or conditions contained or referred to in any documents submitted by you or previously submitted by us or in correspondence or elsewhere.

1.2

These terms and conditions shall be deemed accepted by you if you instruct us or maintain instructions to us. A modification of these terms and conditions shall be valid only if it is in writing and signed by us. We reserve the right to amend or supplement these terms and conditions at any time without notice.

1.3

No failure to enforce or delay in enforcing any of these terms and conditions shall be considered as a waiver of any of them and no partial or single exercise shall prevent any future enforcement of that or any other date.

2.

SERVICES TO BE PROVIDED BY UNGRIA INTERNATIONAL INC.

2.1

UNGRIA INTERNATIONAL INC. is not a law firm. Officers or employees of Ungria International Inc, are not authorized to practice law in the United States of America or in any other jurisdiction where the Services may be referred to, unless explicitly indicated in the correspondence coming from us. Accordingly, no attorney-client relationship can be established through the performance of any services by UNGRIA International Inc.

2.2

UNGRIA International Inc. does not provide legal advice; UNGRIA International Inc. provides intellectual property management services. These services are usually referred to as management of the administration, coordination, maintenance, filing, prosecution or enforcement of intellectual property rights.

2.3

In order to provide the Services we need to instruct local agents/law firms admitted to practice in each of the relevant jurisdictions or other independent specialist providers. We work with a network of preferred local agents/law firms although we may work with other agents/law firms if needed or requested by you or your client.

2.4

The local agents/law firms we work with are separate and distinct entities. Any legal advice that is contained in any communication from us shall be deemed the legal advice of the local agent/law firms and not legal advice of UNGRIA. The name of such local agents/law firms is indicated in the powers of attorney that you or your client has to sign for each jurisdiction. By signing these powers of attorney, you accept that the local agent/law firm represents you in the relevant jurisdiction. If any, the attorney-client relationship is to be created between you or your client and the local agent/law firm in each jurisdiction. This relationship is independent of the relationship that you may have with UNGRIA International. The naming of any third party referral firms in our correspondence is not intended to give rise to any agency relationship. Each party is intended to be a principal in its own right and the contract for the Services is between you and us only, in accordance with these conditions.

2.5

We are not responsible for any errors, laps or loss of rights which may be caused to you or to a third party, directly or indirectly, as a result of actions or omissions by the local agents/law firms acting on your behalf. Under no circumstances shall the total liability of UNGRIA in connection with the performance of the Services exceed the amount of the fee actually paid to UNGRIA for the Services rendered and such amount shall constitute the liquidated damages.

2.6

You, or your client, are free to change, substitute or terminate the relationship with the local agent/law firm.

2.7

It may be the case that you are acting on behalf of any of your clients, who can be the applicant or holder of any of the rights to which our intellectual property services are referred to. You warrant and represent that you have powers of attorney and capacity to act on behalf of your client and to instruct us to provide you with Services. You further represent that you shall not exceed such powers of attorney and you shall indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any claim, action, loss, damage or liability, including reasonable attorney fees, suffered or incurred by us as a result of your actions.
