the Legal Foundations Pack™ (hereinafter referred to as the “Program”)
By purchasing and/or using the Program, you implicitly hereby agree to be legally bound by the following:
- DEFINITIONS USED HEREIN:
“Company”, “We”, “I”, “Our”, or “Us” means Sam Vander Wielen LLC, owned by Sam Vander Wielen.
“Participation”, “Participating”, “Using”, or “Use” means reading, purchasing, watching, listening to, implementing, trying, or otherwise engaging in the Program.
“You” or “Your” means the purchaser and person using the Program.
By participating in the Program, you understand that Sam Vander Wielen is a licensed attorney in the State of New Jersey and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania — however, she does not practice law and will not give you legal advice pertaining to you, your business, or your personal situation. Sam Vander Wielen is never your attorney. You can only get legal advice from a local-to-you licensed attorney.
This Program is for informational and educational purposes only. The information and education provided in this Program is not intended or implied to supplement or replace the professional advice of an attorney, accountant, and/or financial advisor. You should consult with a professional in those areas (financial, legal, accounting, etc.) in person with someone where you live or work to discuss issues or questions pertaining to your particular legal, financial, or business situation.
Although we do our best to make sure all of the Program’s content is up to date and/or accurate, we do not make any representation that all the information is accurate or free of errors at all times. We do not assume any responsibility for accuracy of the Program’s information, or its safety or efficacy as it applies to you.
4. NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US
We do not offer to create any formal attorney-client relationship with you in the Program. A formal attorney-client relationship is only created once you have entered into a specific and separate written agreement (called an “Engagement Letter”). Sam Vander Wielen does not offer to enter into these relationships, or to sign Engagement Letters, in the Program or anywhere else in her business. Therefore, you are not in an attorney-client relationship with Sam Vander Wielen or Sam Vander Wielen LLC by purchasing the Program..
5. CONSULT YOUR OWN ATTORNEY
WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE PROGRAM COVERS ALL OF YOUR SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES, ISSUES, OR STATE LAWS. Always consult with a local licensed attorney near you.
Each state has different laws regarding contracts, business, services, taxes, etc. Those laws are always evolving, changing, and being interpreted by the Courts of that state. Therefore, it is impossible for us to include state-specific provisions in the Program. Please understand that we do not represent that the Program is specifically designed or tailored to your state (or any state in particular), or that it accurately depicts what is or is not required by your state and its laws.
We always recommend you consult a local attorney, licensed in the state where you live and do business, to review any and all templates, guides, forms, or contracts you purchase from Us and prepare yourself, including the DIY legal templates. A local attorney will be able to tell you what you, your business, and your situation needs based on where you live and work.
BY PURCHASING THE PROGRAM, you acknowledge you have the right and ability to speak, hire, consult, and/or work with an attorney licensed in your state and/or where you do business prior to purchasing the Program.
6. ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK
You should use your best judgment in using the information provided in the Program. Purchase the Program at your own risk after careful consideration of whether the Program is best for you and suits your needs.
It’s your responsibility to discern the risk of purchasing the Program and/or implementing its templates or content. By purchasing the Program, you’re assuming responsibility for your actions, choices, or lack thereof, related to the Program.

9. NO CLAIMS MADE REGARDING RESULTS:
Any and all current or past-client testimonials, statements, or examples used by us are simply that: examples. They are not guarantees that you will also experience or receive the same results. Each person’s circumstances are unique and nothing shall be interpreted as a guarantee that you will experience the same results as another client of ours.
We don’t make any assurances as to any particular financial-based outcome based on the use of or participation in the Program. We are not responsible for the success or failure of your business, business decisions, income, sales, or any other result of any kind that you may have as a result of your participation in the Program.

We are not liable for damages of any kind related to your use of the Program.
11. YOUR RELEASE OF US, INDEMNIFICATION, AND HOLD HARMLESS:
To the fullest extent permitted by law, Sam Vander Wielen LLC expressly disclaims liability for any direct, indirect, and/or consequential damages suffered by you related to your purchase or use of, or participation in, the Program, its materials, our website, or any other information obtained by you from us.

13. ARBITRATION CLAUSE:
If you have any complaint or should any issue arise in the use of the Program, please contact us directly first by emailing us at [email protected]
However, if we are unable to amicably resolve your dispute in that manner, you agree that you and Sam Vander Wielen LLC shall submit your dispute to binding arbitration with the American Arbitration Association, before an arbitrator that is mutually agreed upon, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules.
By agreeing to this term, you hereby agree and understand that you’re waiving your right to a jury trial in court, which would otherwise be available to you if not for this Arbitration Clause. Should any arbitration hearing need to be held, it shall be held within 25 miles of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, U.S.A.
If the arbitrator issues an award and a judgment is made, the judgment will be binding and will be entered in court in the State of New Jersey. The only award that can be issued to you is a refund of any payment made to Sam Vander Wielen LLC for the Program.
You are not permitted to seek additional damages, including consequential or punitive damages.
