Terms of use

1. Welcome!

We’re delighted you’re browsing our website, www.fairsquareLLP.com, and we hope you enjoy your stay. We’re Fairsquare LLP, a law firm authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority with SRA no. 626209, and a limited liability partnership incorporated in England and Wales with no. OC501452. When we say ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘Fairsquare’, that’s because that’s who we are, and we own and run www.fairsquareLLP.com.

These terms of use, which we may update from time to time, set out how you may use our website, and tell you what happens on our end when you use it. By using our website you accept these terms of use and agree to abide by them.

2. Using information on our website

We spend a lot of time researching the information we share on our website. We also describe our own experiences of using Slicing Pie, because we want to help others to share equity fairly. However, dynamic equity is a fast-developing field, and everyone has different experiences. Thus, the information and all the materials we provide on our website are for general information purposes only.

The information provided on our website does not constitute legal or other professional advice. For that, we would need to understand your particular situation, and you would need to be one of our clients. If you would like advice on a specific legal issue, please contact us. If we can help, then we’d be happy to discuss you becoming one of our clients. If you instruct us, we will send you an engagement letter setting out the work we would do, our fees, and our standard terms of business before we begin.

Our website contents are naturally subject to change, so whilst we endeavour to make them so, we do not guarantee that they are accurate and/or up to date. You are therefore responsible for checking the accuracy of any facts and opinions given on our website before entering into any commitment based on them. In addition, we do not endorse and are not responsible for the content of any external websites that are linked from or link to our website.

You therefore agree to use our website and the information on it entirely at your own risk. We accept no responsibility whatsoever, and hereby exclude to the fullest extent permitted by law, liability for any loss or damage (including without limitation direct, indirect, incidental or consequential loss, loss of profits and other economic loss of any kind) which may be caused to you, your computer equipment or to any third party by using our website or relying on the information and materials within it, save to the extent that any person suffers death or personal injury as a result of our negligence.

3. Intellectual property

We create our own website content wherever we can. This includes any articles that we write for our blog, and any images that we make and design. We also respect others’ intellectual property rights, so if we use third party content, we will acknowledge those third parties.

We own all intellectual property rights in our website content (unless owned by third parties), which shall remain the property of Fairsquare LLP. You are allowed to read our website content and make copies for your own personal use. You may also provide occasional copies (or reasonable extracts quoted in context) to others subject to these terms of use, provided that you do not do so for profit, and provided that you acknowledge Fairsquare LLP as copyright owner. All other use, copying and reproduction of all or any part of our website content, whether directly or indirectly, is prohibited without first obtaining our written consent.

4. How we use your information

If you sign up to our mailing list, then we may from time to time send you information that we think may be of interest, including the latest news on getting Slicing Pie to work in the UK, occasional musings on being grunts, and changes in the law which may affect you.
