Can I create my own database using the templates or other site materials?2017-05-21T17:12:09+01:00

You may not use the whole or any part of the templates or other site materials to create a new database that may be used as a substitute for a paid-for membership to a CloudLegal service.

Can I send templates to third parties (including clients) outside of my business?2017-05-21T17:11:43+01:00

You can send templates to third parties or to your clients outside your organisation if:

  • you have first tailored it and are sending it in the ordinary course of your organisation’s business;
  • the template sent could not be used by the recipient as a substitute for their own paid-for membership to a CloudLegal service.

In all these cases you must be sure that the recipient will not use the templates you send to create competitor products or other works, products or services of their own.

Are there limits on how many times I can download a template?2017-05-21T17:11:22+01:00

In the ordinary course of your organisation’s business, there is no restriction on the number of times you can download a template for your own use.

However, where your membership gives you unlimited access to instant templates, you must be reasonable about the number of templates that you download and you must not download any templates for a third party. You must not do this in such a way that either you or the recipient could use the templates as a substitute for a paid-for membership to the CloudLegal service.
