12. Confidentiality and Paralegal-Client or Lawyer-Client Relationship
You agree that information submitted to us via our Site may not be subject to paralegal-client confidentiality or lawyer-client privilege. You should not provide any information to GLLLP unless and until GLLLP is able to conduct a check confirming that no conflict of interest exists between GLLLP, its clients, and you.

You agree that you will not submit information via our Site if you are already a client of GLLLP. Please contact us via e-mail or telephone if necessary.
You agree that your submission of information through our Site does not create a paralegal-client or lawyer-client relationship or impose any duty upon GLLLP to act on your behalf unless GLLLP expressly undertakes to do so. Unless otherwise stated, GLLLP is not engaged as your legal representative(s) and does not act to preserve or defend your interests.
13. Force Majeure
You agree that we are not responsible to you for anything that we may otherwise be responsible for, if it is the result of events beyond our control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, insurrection, riots, terrorism, crime, labour shortages (including lawful and unlawful strikes), embargoes, postal disruption, communication disruption, unavailability of payment processors, failure or shortage of infrastructure, shortage of materials, or any other event beyond our control.
In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.
If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, GLLLP shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
GLLLP reserves all rights afforded to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.
We may amend this Agreement from time to time. When we amend this Agreement, we will update this page accordingly. You must read this page each time that you access our Service, and your continued use of our Service shall constitute your acceptance of any such amendments.
