Website Terms of Use

Notices and Conditions of Use

In these Terms of Use, “we”, “our” and “us” refer to H & H Lawyers Pty Ltd trading as H & H IP. Your use of our website is subject to the following terms and conditions, and by accessing this website you acknowledge that you accept these terms and conditions.

 

Disclaimer

The information and material on this website is intended only to provide general overview on matters of interest. Its contents are not a complete statement of the law on any subject. Professional advice should be sought before any course of action is pursued.

 

While we endeavour to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information contained on this website, that information may contain errors and omissions and is liable to change. We make no representation or warranty as to the reliability, accuracy or completeness of the information and we are not responsible for any action or failure to act in reliance upon the information on this website or any third party website which may be accessed by a link from this website.

 

No lawyer/attorney-client relationship

Our operation of this website is not intended to create, and will not create, a lawyer/attorney-client relationship with you. While you are very welcome to contact us by telephone, email, facsimile, online enquiry or any other means, merely contacting us or communicating with us does not create a lawyer/attorney-client relationship until an agreement has been reached between you and H & H IP to handle a particular matter. The formation of such relationship requires prior satisfaction of multiple factors including checking and resolving any conflicts of interest and mutual agreement on the terms of the engagement.

 

Intellectual Property

This website contains intellectual property including copyright, trade marks and confidential information, together with any goodwill subsisting in those rights owned by H & H IP or third parties. Unless permitted by law, you must not copy, reproduce, transmit, adapt, store, display or otherwise distribute any of that intellectual property in whole or in part without our or the relevant third party’s prior written consent.

 

Third Party Website

This website contains links to websites not maintained, controlled or associated with us. The links do not and should not be taken as implying our endorsement or approval of the content of those websites or the activities of the organisations and businesses responsible for those websites. We are not responsible for the operation, security levels, content or any other aspect of those third party websites.

 

Complimentary Services

Free Trade Mark Head-up Search

By offering and conducting the Free Trade Mark Head-up Search, we take all reasonable steps to ensure the completeness and accuracy of the search but searches are inherently subjective and dependent upon uncertain contingencies. As a result we cannot guarantee the search result is complete and accurate. We exclude, to the maximum extent permitted by law, all liability which may arise as a result of or in connection with the search. The search result does not guarantee that your trade mark can be registered nor will it be rejected. A trade mark is examined against a number of factors including whether the mark is descriptive of the goods/services. If an objection raised during examination, this may or may not be overcome subject to each applicant’s situation.

 

In carrying out this complimentary search we access data kept by the Australian Trade Marks Office, Australian Securities and Investments Commission and a WhoIs Domain Lookup Registry for the identical mark only, and therefore are dependent upon the accuracy of the records available to us. Due to the timing of updates to the official records kept by these organisations, there is a possibility that the same or similar mark have been recorded in the couple of weeks before the date of conducting the search. A conflicting trade mark application may also be filed in Australia subsequent to the date of the search with claiming priority in accordance with the Paris Convention.

 

The search request is strictly limited to twice per person or business. We may cease offering this service at any time for any or no reason without notice.

 

Privacy Policy

Our compliance with privacy legislation is set out in our separate Privacy Policy page.

 

Changes

We may change these terms at our discretion and without notice. By continuing to use our website you accept the terms of use as they apply from time to time. The legal disclaimer is in no way limited or altered by any other terms or conditions on this website.

 

Jurisdiction

These terms of use and all matters relating to this website are governed by and are to be construed according to the laws of New South Wales, Australia. You consent to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales and the courts of appeal from them for determining any dispute concerning these terms of use.
