Terms Of Services
Last Updated: 19 August 2015
You must be the legal age of majority or otherwise able to form a binding contract with Wukla in order to use the Services. In no event is use of the Services permitted by those under the age of 18.
Wukla is Not a Law Firm and Does Not Provide Legal Advice
Wukla provides a platform for legal information and self-help. The information provided by Wukla along with the content on our website related to legal matters ("Legal Information") is provided for your private use and does not constitute legal advice. Wukla does not review any information you provide for legal accuracy or sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide opinions about your selection of forms, or apply the law to the facts of your situation.
If you need legal advice for a specific problem, you should consult with an advocate. Neither Wukla nor any Legal Information provided by Wukla is a substitute for legal advice from a qualified advocate licensed to practice in Pakistan.
Your use of the Services does not create an “attorney-client” relationship between you and Wukla, or between you and any Wukla employee or representative. Unless you are otherwise represented by an advocate, you represent yourself in any legal matter you undertake through our Services.
Wukla does not endorse or recommend any advocate nor does it make any warranty as to the qualifications or competency of any advocate.
When you use our Services, you will have the opportunity to initiate contact with an independent advocate (a "Participating Advocate"). Participating Advocates are neither employees nor agents of Wukla. Participating Advocates are third-party independent contractors that have agreed to provide limited consultations or legal reviews to Wukla users. Communicating with a Participating Advocate through Wukla is NOT required. However, if you choose to communicate with a Participating Advocate through Wukla, please note the following:
When you contact a Participating Advocate through Wukla, he or she may provide you with an initial consultation, legal review of your forms or documents, or answers to your legal questions. Please note that any such interaction is intended to be a starting point for dealing with a legal matter or addressing basic legal questions and any “attorney-client” relationship formed during the course of that interaction is strictly between you and the Participating Advocate and expressly EXCLUDES Wukla.
When you contact a Participating Advocate through Wukla, he or she may ask you for some information regarding you and your legal affairs in order to properly address your questions. By using our Services, you consent to sharing such personally identifying information for the purpose of securing legal advice with both the requesting advocate and with Wukla. Wukla will have access to any communications submitted through our platform for fulfilment and quality assurance purposes.
When you contact a Participating Advocate through Wukla, you control both the duration and depth of the interaction. Any “attorney-client” relationship formed during the course of that interaction may, at your option, either (i) end when the interaction with the Participating Advocate ends, or (ii) continue if you wish to engage the Participating Advocate for further legal services.
If you wish to create an “attorney-client” relationship with a Participating Advocate that extends beyond your use of our Services, that relationship will be on whatever terms you establish with the advocate in question. Those terms do NOT involve Wukla and we do not set, control or influence them. For example, the Participating Advocate may ask you to sign a vakalatnama or other form of agreement of representation, regarding the scope of work they will perform, the cost of their legal services, and the handling of any out of pocket expenses they may incur.
In all cases, Wukla will not influence or interfere in any way with any advocate’s independent professional judgment. Participating Advocates reserve the right to refuse to perform legal services on your behalf in their sole discretion.
Participating Advocates are third-party independent contractors solely responsible for the advice they give, the services they provide and the representations about themselves they make. You are solely responsible for assessing the quality, integrity, suitability and trustworthiness of all persons with whom you communicate regarding your legal needs.
Wukla is an information provider and does not endorse or recommend any advocate, including any of the Participating Advocates. Wukla makes no representation or warranty as to the qualifications or competency of any Participating Advocate or as to the accuracy or completeness of any Participating Advocate’s work. WUKLA SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY OF ANY KIND FOR ANY PROFESSIONAL SERVICES RENDERED BY ANY ADVOCATE YOU ENCOUNTER ON OR THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, AND ANY USE OR RELIANCE ON SUCH PROFESSIONAL SERVICES IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Wukla makes available services for premium customers entering into customised arrangements or monthly / annual legal plans, which may be subject to certain additional terms and conditions (a "Premium Service"). You must have a valid payment instrument, such as a credit card or other permitted payment method, in order to start and continue with a Premium Service. Upon confirmation of the Premium Service, you will automatically join the plan you have chosen and Wukla will charge your authorized payment instrument the relevant monthly fee or annual fee, as applicable. Please note that it is your responsibility to maintain current credit card information on file with Wukla in order to ensure uninterrupted service.
By entering into a Premium Service, you agree to pay the stated fees associated with such membership, including any recurring payments if applicable. Your paid subscription may automatically renew in accordance with its terms.
Unless you notify us before the renewal date of your auto-renewing Premium Service that you wish to downgrade, your paid subscription will automatically renew for the subsequent period. If we are unable to charge your designated payment method for any reason, we reserve the right to suspend your Premium Service until your designated payment method can be charged again.Wukla reserves the right to collect any outstanding fees from you with respect to your Premium Service account.
Termination of Membership and Access Restriction
Wukla reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to downgrade or terminate your access to the Services, for any reason and at any time without prior notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services if you are not complying with these Terms, or if you are using the Services in a manner that would expose us to legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others' use of the Services.
If Wukla elects to terminate your account, Wukla will provide you with notice at your registered email address. Wukla also reserves the right to modify or discontinue, either temporarily or permanently, any part of its Services with notice. You agree that Wukla will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of your membership in the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that Wukla may preserve these Documents as well as disclose them if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to accomplish any of the following: (1) to comply with legal process, applicable laws or government requests; (2) to enforce these Terms; (3) to respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (4) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Wukla, its users and the public; or (5) to help develop Wukla’s ability to provide the Services.

Printing, Delivery and Executing Documents
Wukla uses printing, courier and cash-on-delivery services supplied by third parties, collectively referred to here as "Couriers", which act as independent contractors and do not, in any way, act as an agent of Wukla. These Couriers are engaged to provide you with a convenient and effective delivery service of your printed Documents and collect payment on behalf of Wukla for its Services. Wukla does not sponsor and is not legally associated with any third party "Couriers" and actively monitors their performance in an ongoing review of Wukla’s relationship with any Courier. Wukla is not legally authorized to use any trade name, registered trademark, logo, official seal or copyrighted material that may be used or owned by a Courier.
Wukla does not control or endorse any Courier. That includes, without limitation, the Courier’s service, their terms and conditions of service and any changes to either. Wukla is not responsible for the services supplied by the Courier. These Terms do not cover your interaction with the Courier which will be subject to their own terms and conditions as appropriate and applicable. You should carefully review the terms and conditions of any third parties including Couriers.
If you use any service provided by a Courier, (a) Wukla will not be responsible for any act or omission of the Courier, including (i) the Courier’s access (with or without authority) to or use of your customer data; (ii) any errors or inaccuracies in printing your Documents including, but not limited to, using an incorrect value, invalid or unenforceable stamp paper; (iii) any delay in delivery, damage to or loss of the Documents or any financial or similar damage or loss to you that may result accordingly and (b) Wukla does not warrant or support any service provided by the Courier.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
However, if Wukla is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally, then as a condition to your use of the Services we mutually agree to resolve such dispute through binding arbitration conducted in Karachi, Pakistan by a sole arbitrator appointed by Wukla in accordance with the Arbitration Act 1940. The arbitration shall be conducted in English.
Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate our disputes as provided above, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
Wukla may bring a suit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any unauthorized use or abuse of the Services without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Wukla may bring a suit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Wukla may, in the future, make changes to these provisions regarding dispute resolution and arbitration in accordance with the section of these Terms entitled "Modifications" below.
These Terms will be governed by the laws of Pakistan.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Wukla with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability and Assignment
Wukla's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Wukla may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
