I have chosen to participate in a Max Gardner’s Bankruptcy Boot Camp (“Program”) operated by Maxinars, LLC (“Maxinars”) and/or to purchase Program materials through the Maxinars’ website, www.MaxBankruptcyBootCamp.com (the “Portal”). As a participant in the Program and/or by purchase of program materials through the Portal, I may from time to time be given the opportunity to consult with licensed attorneys, including Max Gardner, and other people associated with Maxinars, who may be employed by, under contract with, or acting on behalf of Maxinars (“Maxinars Professionals”).
I understand that upon attendance at a live event, I will be asked to sign this “Terms and Conditions and General Waivers” in connection with my participation in the Program and/or purchase of Program materials through the Portal, and that proceeding with the purchase and viewing of online program materials constitutes acceptance of these terms.
BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Please read the full text)
This brief summary of the Terms and Conditions of my participation in the Program is intended as a summary only. To the extent of any conflict between this summary and the full text of the Terms and Conditions, the full text of the Terms and Conditions shall control. I acknowledge that by signing this document and/or accepting these Terms and Conditions online, I am releasing Maxinars from certain liability as described in the full text below.
Maxinars and the Maxinars Professionals are focused on giving advice in the areas of Bankruptcy, Chapter 11, Bankruptcy Litigation, and Foreclosure Defense. The Maxinars Professionals are not giving legal advice or counsel. I understand that I should consult a licensed attorney for any and all legal advice.
I also acknowledge and agree that the materials Maxinars uses for the Program and through the Portal are legally protected. I can’t copy or sell any of the materials without express written permission from Maxinars. A Maxinars Professional may connect me to another group or website for more information. Maxinars is not responsible for the material there, and those external resources may have different rules to follow.
Maxinars can change the Terms and Conditions at any time and will post the changes on the Portal. Since Maxinars is based in Illinois, the Program will follow Illinois law. If I have questions about the content contained here, I know I have the right to speak with a lawyer.
BY CONTINUING WITH MY PURCHASE, I HEREBY ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
