Every good and lawful website has terms and conditions, so We have them too. These Terms describe how We will operate and how You are allowed to use Our Website.
Our Terms contain rights and obligations for both of us. They form a contractual Agreement between us. You should read them carefully. Using Our Website indicates Your acceptance of this Agreement and triggers the contractual relationship between You and Farillio.
Although these days, many websites have pretty standard terms and conditions, and You will not see much difference between them, You should still check what they say and ensure that You are happy about their impact on You, especially where You may be buying from that website or providing it with personal information about Yourself. It's important to know that in the event of something going wrong on the Website, You're protected.
Some sections of Our Terms relate only to those people who have a Membership Account with Us, however, other sections of Our Terms apply to visitors of the Website (without a Membership Account) who have access to the freely available sections of Our Website, as well. You should therefore read them carefully, whether you have a Membership Account or not.
Any website that is accessible by a hyperlink or other connection from Our Website will be governed by its own separate set of terms and conditions and not Ours.
Our Website is intended for residents of the United Kingdom only. Other countries' laws may restrict the distribution of the information and products available on Our Website, so the Website is not applicable to or aimed at residents of other countries. If You are a non-UK resident and You have chosen to access this Website from outside the UK, this is at Your own risk.
If You're not happy with any of Our Terms, please leave Our Website immediately. It's the only way You can prevent Our Terms from applying to You. You can ask us questions about Our Terms by contacting us at email@example.com or by using the Website's live chat feature.
We collaborate with great law firms to bring You the expert information comprising Our Content on Our Website. This means You can be confident in what You find here. However, while Our Content is for Your guidance and We hope You find it very helpful, it is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice and it is not legal advice of itself. For the avoidance of doubt, We are not a law firm and We do not provide any legal services or legal advice. No legal professional privilege applies to information You provide to us. However, our Partners may provide legal advice in accordance with their separate terms of engagement, which may also attract legal professional privilege. You'll find their separate terms of engagement on our Website whenever you select our advisory Pay As You Go Services.
If You'd like some friendly advice or a chat, please get in touch. We can connect You with the resources and/or the right advisers to support Your particular needs via our Pay As You Go Services. You don't have to use one of Our law firm Partners, of course, but We do recommend taking legal advice before making decisions or acting on Our Content.
We endeavour to keep Our Content up to date and accurate, and both We and Our expert Partners take this endeavour very seriously. This is not a contractual commitment, however. We must point out that Our Content only comprises legal information and We are not liable to You for any loss or damage caused by Your use of Our Content or delays, inaccuracies, errors or omissions in any of Our Content or materials available on Our Website, or that might arise in the transition, or delivery, of all or part, of any of these materials.
We take a lot of care over Our Content that We provide on Our Website. We want You to be delighted with it and to always find it relevant, user-friendly and valuable. So, as You'd expect, We own or hold the rights to the copyright on Our Website and Our Content. Please do not use Our Content or any material from this Website, including documentation, code and Software, in any way that infringes Our intellectual property rights in it; (we cover those particular rights in more detail at clause 9 below).
We agree to provide the Services and Our Content substantially in accordance with the Terms of this Agreement and with reasonable skill and care.
We will not be in breach of our commitment at clause 5.5 where any non-compliance with it is caused by use of the Services and/or Our Content contrary to Our instructions, or modification or alteration of the Services or Our Content by any party other than Us or Our duly authorised Partners. If the Services otherwise do not comply with our commitment at clause 5.5, We will, at Our expense, use reasonable endeavours to correct any such breach promptly, or to provide You with an alternative means of achieving the same outcome. If this happens, Our correction or substitution will fully satisfy Our obligations to You for any breach of Our clause 5.5 commitment and no other remedy will be required of Us. Farillio additionally makes no warranty regarding Our Content and We hereby disclaim all liability in relation to Your (or any Authorised User's) use of and/or reliance on any of Our Content to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Farillio offers a service that allows You and Your Authorised Users and our Partners (if you instruct them to do so) to upload, store, share, and modify Your Content, whether based on Our Content or otherwise. While we agree to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, to keep Your Content secure, you agree that you are responsible for:
You agree that designated members of Farillio's IT and security staff may have strictly limited access to Your Content, for the purposes only of maintaining and resolving any issues with Website functionality or security.
Availability of pay as you go services. When you sign up to access Our platform we will tell you in the description of the services available whether you have access to any Pay As You Go Services on Our platform (those services are requests for advice from third parties such as an expert, third party legal advice line providers or one of our law firm partners (see clause 13 below for details of our current partners, all of whom are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority)). As mentioned in clause 5 above, the content on our platform is not legal advice and we do recommend taking legal (or other relevant professional) advice before taking or refraining from any action on the basis of our content. You do not have to use our law firm partners for that advice, but we can put you in touch with them if you want to.
Where You place an Order for the Pay As You Go Services to request advice from one of our law firm Partners, (all of whom are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority):
When You place an Order to receive Pay As You Go Services, this is subject to payment of the applicable Fee and acceptance of your Order by the Partner, as Farillio is not responsible for the provision of legal advice. If you do not attend your appointment at the allocated time slot, You shall forfeit the applicable Fee. However, You may cancel a booked appointment at least 4 hours in advance without forfeiting the Fee, provided that if you cancel within 4 hours of the appointment, We shall attempt to reschedule a suitable alternative time, at our discretion, and the applicable Fee shall still be payable. If You wish to cancel your Order for any Pay As You Go Services, this may be done within 14 days of ordering to obtain a refund of the applicable Fee, provided that You shall be liable for the Fee for any Services already received, in accordance with applicable law.
We are not a claims management company and therefore do not provide services or charge referral fees with respect to Your personal claims as an individual for personal injury, mis-sold financial products and services, employment and redundancy claims as an employee, criminal injury, industrial injury, and housing disrepair.
Pay As You Go Services will not be available to members who enter Our platform via a unique code or insurance policy link. If you are an insurance policyholder, your policy grants you access to a legal advice line which you can access via Our platform via the Speak to an Expert service.
Changes to Our Website content: Occasionally, We will need to make changes to these Terms and Our right to do so is included in this Agreement. The version of our Terms that you are currently reading here is the most up-to-date version.
All changes will apply to Your use of Our Website. Simply by continuing to use Our Website after these changes are in place or indicating Your consent in another manner, You'll be treated legally as having agreed to and accepted them.
Changes to Services: It's possible that We might stop providing a particular Service on this Website. This agreement gives us the right to do that, and it will not leave us liable to You in any way for having removed it.
Changes to Fees and details of Services: Just like any business, We have the right to change the Fees and details of any of the Services on Our Website. We may do this immediately and without notice.
We want You to have access to Farillio whenever You need it, on any device and as quickly and easily as possible. That means We diligently monitor and protect Our Website, like all good businesses.
Maintenance, upgrades and other planned disruptions: Sometimes, We will need to interrupt the availability of Our Services to perform routine maintenance and upgrades. This Agreement gives us the right to do so. We will always strive to do this during low usage time periods and to keep these disruptions to a minimum, although this intention is not a contractual obligation.
Unscheduled disruptions: Because We are dealing with the internet, there will always be some things that We cannot control or guarantee and that may cause unscheduled disruption to the Website's availability. Like all other good website providers, We provide Our Website on an ‘as available' basis. This means that, if for any reason, Our Website is suddenly unavailable, at any time and for any period, We will not be liable to You, including for any loss, damage or inconvenience this causes You. Having said that, You can rest assured that even though We're not contractually bound to do so, We will be working hard to prevent this from happening and to remedy any interruption in availability to You should this happen.
Passwords and Your Website security commitments: A limited part of Our Website is accessible to non-members, who do not need passwords or user identities to enjoy the publicly-available content provided.
If You are a registered member of Our Farillio community, You will have chosen or been provided with a user name, password and potentially other information as part of Our security procedures. Please use these responsibly and securely as they are strictly confidential. You must not disclose them to anyone else without Our express written permission. We do, however, consent to you sharing this password with up to three (3) Authorised Users and Your legal advisers (unless otherwise agreed in writing).
If You know or suspect that anyone other than You knows Your user identity and/or password, You agree to promptly notify us on firstname.lastname@example.org and to immediately change Your password.
We have the right to suspend or to permanently deactivate Your access permissions at any time, if in Our opinion, You have not complied with any of these Terms, including the disclosure of these confidential access permissions.
If You are not a registered member or Authorised User, You do not have Our permission to enter the non-public parts of Our Website and We do not consent to You using the password and security access rights of one of Our registered members. You will be acting unlawfully and so will the member who has provided You with their access details.
When we will provide Our Services. We will supply Our Services to you until:

Farillio shall not be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration or disclosure of Your Content caused by any third party (except those third parties sub-contracted by Farillio to perform services related to Your Content maintenance and back-up).

Complaints If You are an Insurance customer, or have access to Farillio via a third party
If you receive access to Our platform as part of a relationship or contract with a third-party company, organisation or association, we will not deal with any complaints relating to your contract, insurance policy or relationship with that third party and if we do receive a complaint from you relating to them or your contract, policy or relationship we will direct you back to them. Likewise, if your complaint relates to services provided by a law firm partner, an expert or legal advice helpline, then we will direct you to them to deal with the complaint.
Once We receive Your Complaint
If Your complaint is straightforward, We may be in a position to resolve it very quickly.
If We are able to resolve Your complaint before the end of the second working day after it is received by Us, We will send You a ‘Summary of findings and Our proposed resolution' promptly, with confirmation of the action We have taken to resolve Your complaint. (We should already have acknowledged Your complaint (within 7 working hours) to let You know that We are working on it.)
In all other cases We will send You a written acknowledgement of Your complaint promptly, normally within 2 working days of receiving it.
If You have made Your complaint over our Livechat facility, We will take a transcript of the record and use that as a written record of Your complaint, unless You tell us that You prefer Us not to do so. If You ask Us not to do this, We will request that You instead set out Your complaint in writing (by email is fine), so that We can be confident that We have all the facts We need, to proceed with considering and resolving Your complaint.
If You have made Your complaint to Us over the phone or in person, We will confirm to You Our understanding of the reasons for Your complaint and ask You to advise Us if You do not agree, or if We have inadvertently missed out or misunderstood any of Your concerns. Once We have your confirmation that this account is correct, we will proceed to resolve Your complaint.
Investigating your complaint
Your complaint will then be investigated by an appropriate member of staff within Farillio, who will be identified as the correct person depending on the seriousness of the complaint and the nature of it e.g. a technical, legal or other matter.
In resolving complaints, We will review all relevant information available to Us and We endeavour to complete any such investigation and reach conclusions as soon as reasonably possible.
The length of time this will take will be necessarily determined by the complexity and type of complaint and the extent of the investigation required.
During Our investigation, We may ask You for additional information to help Us reach a conclusion. We will also aim to keep You updated on the progress of Your complaint and the steps being taken to resolve it.
Once We have completed our investigation, We will write to You to explain our conclusion(s). Under normal circumstances, We aim to do this within 7 working days of receiving Your complaint.
In the extremely unlikely event that We are unable to complete Our investigation and contact you conclusively within 7 working days from the date of receiving your complaint, We will write to You explaining why We are still not in a position to issue a final response, giving reasons for the further delay and indicating when We expect to be able to issue you with our final conclusions and resolution.
