Featured Listings

Individuals and businesses that provide details for a law firm to be featured on LawFirms.co.uk should take utmost care to provide true and accurate details of the business including the contact details, address, website url, telephone number and appropriate legal categories that a listing should belong to.

All individuals and businesses that purchase a featured listing automatically provide permission for us to use the firms contact details, company logo and website screenshot (an image of your websites home page or other relevant page) so that we can provide your firms featured listing/s and setup your login area / account.

Subscriptions & Payments

All payments are processed through Stripe so that your full credit or debit card details are not stored on our website or databases. You can learn more about Stripe here: https://stripe.com/gb

As payments are processed on Stripes servers not our own, no responsibility for any loss or damaged sustained by an individual or businesses for making a payment through this website with credit card or debit card payments can be provided. Stripe is classed as an excellent payment provider so using their servers for processing payments improves the security of payments and any credit or debit card details stored. We do not store your full credit or debit card details on this website or in our databases to make payments as secure as possible.

In the unlikely event of a payment error, technical error or unauthorised access to any of the payment systems / platforms required for processing payments that results in additional payments being taken from your credit / debit card or for a greater amount being taken there will be no liability or compensation from DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk but any additional charges or greater amounts of money that are taken from your debit or credit card in error and collected by our Stripe or bank account will be refunded.

Renewal Policy

All subscriptions for our featured listings come with an automatic monthly renewal policy. By purchasing / ordering a featured listing/s you hereby give your full permission to process a payment each month using your credit or debit card. Please make sure that there are sufficient funds in your account on the day payment is collected. If you wish to cancel future payments from your credit or debit card you can cancel your subscription through your account / login area on this website (LawFirms.co.uk).

Refunds

Refunds will only be provided if requested within 24 hours of placing an order or within 24 hours of your subscription being renewed. Refunds are limited to the 24 hours after purchase because most featured listings are added within 24 hours so a business / law firm will most likely already be advertised on the website as a featured listing, thus benefiting from the service.

Refunds will not be provided for a lower number of profile views than expected or for not receiving any enquires in a particular month as the service in no way guarantees to generate enquires. Most customers will however usually see an increase in enquires and will usually receive lots of visits to their profile pages on this website but no refunds are offered based on the effectiveness of your subscription / featured listing/s for generating enquires for your business / firm. Tracking the number of enquires accurately would be almost impossible for us as contact details / profile pages can be shared via social media, emailed to people, bookmarked in web browsers, saved offline if copied and pasted in to a document, stored in a phone (or device) for later use, etc. For this reason DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk makes no guarantees for any number of enquires your business is likely to receive with regards to the services you provide. Profile view visitor statistics are provided though on each firms profile page as usually lots of profile views would result in more enquires for a firm / business.

Cancellations

Featured listings can be cancelled through your account login area on this website. No refunds will be provided as part of a cancellation but you will not be charged for the following month if you cancel before your monthly payment date. You can also continue to advertise your firm as a featured listing for the remaining term of the month that has already been paid for or you can request for the listing/s to be removed if you require that they no longer be shown on this website.

Approval Of Listings

DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk reserves the right to refuse any requested listings. Listings will usually be rejected if the office location is not a genuine UK office or if we are not able to find accurate or consistent references to the addresses and contact details associated with a firm when performing our checks of a firm for their inclusion on our website.

Upgrades To Featured Listings

You can purchase an upgrade to your featured listing/s through your login area / account on this website. This will allow you to add more offices / locations for your firm as a featured listing.

Downgrades To Featured Listing

You can downgrade your featured listings through your login area / account on this website. No refunds will be provided for downgrades but you will not be charged for the featured listings that you no longer require for the following month if you downgrade before your monthly payment date.

Account Termination

DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk reserves the right to delete user accounts on this website including any associated data with the account if an account does not have an active featured listings subscription / payment plan.

DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk also reserves the right to cancel any subscriptions or remove any user accounts from this website.

No liability or compensation will be provided by DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk for any loss or damage sustained as a result of your account on this website with its associated data being removed.

Newsletters, Emails & Communications

As part of the service we will attempt to send emails to confirm purchases, notify you of account creation and other account / order related matters. By purchasing a featured listing you also agree to be added to our quarterly newsletter usually sent out approximately every 3 months. This newsletter is intended to provide important information with regards to updates, developments and changes to the service / website that could impact your experience as a customer. You also agree to receive any urgent updates such as warnings or important announcements that might also impact your experience with our service / website. You can opt out of the newsletter and the important announcements emails as there will be a link at the bottom of such emails to do this but we would highly recommend staying signed up for the newsletter and important announcements so that we can keep you informed of any important changes, developments or announcements. The newsletter is intended to be informative rather than just being a platform to increase our sales. There maybe mentions of additional services that you can purchase or features of other services from other businesses but the main aim of the newsletters is to keep our customers informed so please do stay signed up for these if you wish to be notified with regards to such issues mentioned above. DigitalPod / LawFirms.co.uk accepts no liability for any loss or damage sustained as a result of failing to receive emails and communications. Customers are advised to check that emails are being received as many errors can prevent this such as emails being sent to the wrong email address if an email address has been entered into this website with an error, spam filters removing these emails, internet connection issues or server errors. Your firms details will not be sold to another business as your details including your email address will be treated in accordance with our privacy policy shown below.

Updates / Amendments To Our Terms & Conditions

All customers that have a recurring subscription agree to accept all future alterations to our terms and conditions as and when their subscriptions renew each month when a payment is made from their credit or debit card. Customers should check these terms and conditions each month before their monthly payment date so that they are aware of any updates as these updates will apply to a customer when their monthly subscription renews. So with each monthly renewal a customer is to understand and be aware that they are accepting the latest terms and conditions when the monthly payment is paid. A date is provided at the bottom of the terms and conditions (above the privacy policy) to show when the last changes were made to our terms and conditions. We do not intend to make regular changes to these terms and conditions but when future developments are added to the website / service it may be necessary for us to make updates to the terms and conditions.
