Our Terms and Conditions
This page contains the following legal documents relating to this website:
(i) a website disclaimer governing the use of this website; and
(ii) a download agreement governing the purchase and use of the documents.
Welcome to Divorce Actually’s online document exchange (the “Site”). These Terms and Conditions (including any documents referred to in it) (“Agreement”) list the terms of the agreement between you (“You”) and Clean Storm Limited (“Divorce Actually” or “We” or “Us”) for the buying and selling of documents (“Documents”), and all other services that We provide (the “Services”). Divorce Actually does not own the documents listed on the website or included in the database or sold through the website, and is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. The contract for the sale is directly between buyer and seller. By using our Site, You agree to accept this Agreement.
Divorce Actually provides a service that allows users who want to buy documents (“Buyers”) to find users who want to sell documents (“Sellers”). Divorce Actually does not take title to the underlying document (to the extent such title exists), and the actual transactions are between the Buyers and Sellers.
The Seller is responsible for determining whether it/he/she is required to account for VAT (UK or other), GST, sales tax or other similar fees (collectively, “Tax”) on the sale of the document. We take no responsibility for such issues. If the Seller is required to account for Tax on the sale of the document, the Seller will include the Tax in the price of the documents on the website. Note that this is separate from any Tax Divorce Actually is required to charge on its fees.
You agree that We are not responsible in any way for the accuracy or suitability of any payment of taxes to any entity on your behalf. You shall indemnify and hold Divorce Actually and (if applicable) any parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents and employees harmless against all liabilities, costs, interest and expenses (including reasonable solicitors’ fees) incurred by Divorce Actually that arise out of any third party or governmental claim that involves, relates to or concerns (i) any local, regional, country, or international tax obligation or amounts due or owing under any tax regulation, law, order or decree or (ii) any dispute concerning the tax status of Divorce Actually.
