User Agreement

Thanks for signing up and purchasing one or more of our video training series!

This User Agreement (the “Agreement”) shall serve as a master agreement between you (“you,” “your” or “user”) and SAFFIRE LEGAL, PC, a California professional corporation (“we,” “us,” “our” or “SAFFIRE LEGAL”). By accessing, purchasing or using our content, which includes but is not limited to, materials, articles, videos, podcasts, audio and other types of programs and information (the “Content”), you hereby explicitly agree to all the terms of this Agreement.

Employment Law

Both state and federal laws govern employment law. State and federal employment laws, as well as the cases that interpret them, are constantly changing. Further, each state has its own unique set of laws and regulations. Therefore, one state’s laws will not be the same as any other state’s laws.

OUR STATE CONTENT IS SPECIFICALLY PREPARED ONLY FOR CALIFORNIA EMPLOYERS.

BECAUSE EMPLOYMENT LAWS ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING, THE CONTENT IS ONLY VALID AND CORRECT FOR THE CALENDAR YEAR IN WHICH IT IS CREATED. You agree that you understand this important point. You agree that you will not use the Content for any purpose whatsoever outside of the calendar year in which it was created, regardless of purchase date. For illustrative purposes, Content purchased in 2018 should be removed from all company systems by January 1, 2019.

The Content is being provided to you for the limited purpose of assisting human resources (“HR”) professionals with training and onboarding employees. It contains an overview of some, but not all, employment issues necessary for employees to know. It is intended for general training, and while we do our best to provide as much information as possible, we are unable to provide you with everything you will need to know or disseminate to employees regarding employment law; and therefore, you understand and agree that you will seek separate legal advice before acting on your company's or employees' specific needs.

NOTE: OUR VIDEO CONTENT TITLED: ANTI-HARASSMENT TRAINING FOR CALIFORNIA EMPLOYEES, DOES NOT SATISFY CALIFORNIA TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR SUPERVISORY PERSONNEL UNDER CA AB1825.

SAFFIRE LEGAL owns or has permission to use or license all Content, including but not limited to, all intellectual property rights associated with the Content.

Except as indicated in this Agreement, you may not use the Content for any other reason whatsoever without prior written permission from us. You acknowledge that using another's intellectual property, including but not limited to, reproducing, uploading, posting or distributing such property is against the law and may violate our or a third party owner's rights. You also understand that unauthorized use of the Content may lead to your personal, and possibly criminal, liability.

We grant you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable revocable license to access and use the Content for the sole purpose of onboarding new employees and/or educating current employees within your organization.

No Attorney / Client Relationship Created From Your Use of the Content

The Content is for informational purposes only.

For specific legal advice, including but not limited to implementing personnel policies and practices, we strongly encourage you to consult an attorney prior to adoption or implementation of those policies or practices. Using our Content in any manner whatsoever does not create an attorney/client relationship between you, your company, your employees or others and SAFFIRE LEGAL or any of its attorneys; and neither does communicating with us regarding the Content. An attorney/client relationship with SAFFIRE LEGAL and/or its attorneys may only be established after we run appropriate conflicts checks and a potential client has signed our engagement letter agreement.

The Content as provided herein is separate and distinct from the rendering of legal services provided by SAFFIRE LEGAL attorneys. The Content is not legal advice. Therefore, the protections of the attorney/client relationship do not apply as between the parties in relation to the Content and this Agreement.
