8. PURCHASE, PRICE INFORMATION, PAYMENT TERMS AND REFUND POLICY
- Subscription: Certain aspects of the Services provided by MLG may require you to purchase a subscription for a period of time as specified during sign-up (collectively a “Subscription”). Your Subscription will automatically renew on a monthly or annual basis (as specified during your sign-up) unless you cancel your Subscription as provided in this section, or we terminate your Subscription as provided in Section 9.
- Shopping in the Genius Lab: Genius Lab (“Lab”) is our online store. It is not necessary to buy a Subscription to make a purchase at the Lab. To make a Lab purchase, you will be prompted to sign into your account. If you do not have an account, create a free account and choose a username and password. Upon completion of the Lab purchase, the purchased product will appear in your account for download. All shopping in the Genius Lab is final. You are responsible for backing up each purchase in the Genius Lab.
- Billing Cycle: As indicated during sign-up, the fee for certain Subscriptions must be paid in a single upfront payment while other Subscriptions may allow payment on an installment basis. If the Subscription fee is paid in a single upfront payment, the total Subscription fee is due and payable to MLG immediately upon sale and your Payment Method will be automatically billed at that time. If the Subscription fee is paid on an installment basis, your Payment Method will automatically be billed at the beginning of each installment period as specified during sign-up.
- Automatic Renewal: In order to provide continuous service, you agree that MLG will automatically renew a Subscription on or about the date the Subscription expires. Such renewal will be for the same duration of the original subscription term and will be billed at the non-discounted rate for the Subscription as of the date of your enrollment and according to your original billing cycle method (i.e. either as a single upfront payment or an installment basis). By enrolling in a Subscription, you agree that your Subscription will be subject to the above-described automatic renewals unless you cancel your Subscription in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. You also agree that the amount billed may be different if your original Subscription was purchased using a promotional/trial offer and you authorize MLG to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts as indicated at the time of sign-up. You agree that you are responsible for other charges, including any foreign transaction charges, that may be imposed by credit card providers, payment processors or other third parties in connection with your use of the Subscription. Your Subscription will remain in effect and continue to renew automatically until it is cancelled.
You may cancel your subscription by visiting your account settings page in your profile, going to the section called “Subscription” and clicking on “Cancel my subscription”. MLG will make reasonable efforts to process cancellation requests within two business days from the receipt of the cancellation request.
- Refund Policy: We will not refund any fees paid to us, including any advance charge(s) or payment(s) for any subscription term for the Services, unless otherwise required by law or the terms of this Agreement. If canceled before the Subscription is due to expire, you will have access to your Subscription until the next billing cycle.
We may terminate this Agreement and close your account, or suspend your access to the Services, at any time without notice and without responsibility or liability to you, in the event of your actual or suspected unauthorized use or misuse of the Website or breach of the Agreement. If you have a Subscription at the time of termination, we will refund to you a pro-rata share of your Subscription charge to account for the period you will not be able to access the Subscription.
We may terminate this Agreement and close your account at any time on reasonable notice to you if we cease to provide the Services.

MLG does not intend its site to constitute attorney advertising but recognizes that it may be so considered in certain jurisdictions. To clarify the purpose of the Website their intent as to its Visitors and Registered Users, MLG states that visiting the Website and interacting with the materials provided thereon does not establish an attorney-client relationship, which is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement and complied with the terms thereof. Materials and information provided on the Websites are not indicative of likely results in any particular matter. MLG cannot guarantee results; past results do not guarantee future results.
16. LICENSING STATUS
Our attorneys are licensed to practice in Alabama. The attorneys of Murray Law Group practice law only where licensed to do so, where permitted to do so by virtue of the advice rendered being on issues of Federal law, and where permitted to do so by multijurisdictional practice rules including American Bar Association Model Rule 5.5 and individual state rules modeled after American Bar Association Model Rule 5.5. To the extent the attorneys of Murray Law Group are contacted by potential clients seeking legal services in jurisdictions in which the attorneys are not permitted by these or other means to practice law, Murray Law Group shall decline to provide representation. Murray Law Group does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit to Websites or upon advertising, or where to do so would not comply with applicable local laws and rules. Access to the Websites from physical locations in jurisdictions in which the attorneys of Murray Law Group are not permitted to practice law is inadvertent and unavoidable due to the nature of internet access; any such access is not intended by Murray Law Group as an advertising effort or an effort to establish a systematic and continuous presence in any jurisdiction in which the attorneys are not permitted to practice law.
17. SIGN-IN NAME; PASSWORD; UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS
During the registration process for Registered Users, we will ask you to create an account, which includes a sign-in name (“Sign-In Name”), a password (“Password”), and perhaps certain additional information that will assist in authenticating your identity when you log-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”). When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one Registered User, and sharing your access credentials with others (especially if they are using your credentials to access our proprietary Content (as defined below)) is a material breach of this Agreement. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Sign-In Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Websites using one or more of them. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a Password or Sign-In Name, or change any Unique Identifier. We reserve the right to delete or change your Password, Sign-In Name, or Unique Identifier at any time and for any reason and shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage caused by such action.

To the extent that any Content is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement will take precedence.

Our rights under this Agreement will survive any termination of this Agreement.
20. JURISDICTION OF LAW
The laws of the State of Alabama will apply to any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services.

21. EQUITABLE RELIEF
You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of Alabama for purposes of any such action by us.
Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
