Users of the Advomi platform are clients and lawyers. In order to use the Advomi platform users must maintain а user accounts with their respective personal details. User accounts are created by the Advomi team and access to a user account is granted to the respective user by the Advomi team. Once granted access to their accounts users must keep the account information accurate, complete and valid (where applicable) and this information must be maintained by the user in such condition on an ongoing and continuous basis.
User accounts are accessible through credentials (email and password). Clients and lawyers shall at all times maintain the security and secrecy of their account information, including the access credentials. Users are not allowed to authorize third parties to use their accounts and accounts are not transferable to any other entity. Users shall be responsible for all activity that occurs under their user account unless they provide sufficient evidence that the account has been the subject of unauthorized use.
To gain access to the Advomi platform and/or use the services of Advomi, users must be at least 18 years old.

Representatives of Singapore law practices, Foreign and Qualifying Foreign law practices, Joint Law Ventures, Formal Law Alliances, Group Practices and Representative offices.
Lawyers who want to use the Advomi platform must apply for membership by creating and maintaining a user account/profile on the Advomi platform. We will inspect the information provided in the lawyer’s profile and before granting access to the Advomi platform may request proofs for the information presented by the lawyer. Prior to receiving access to the Advomi platform lawyers may be subject to a vetting process by Advomi. During the process, our team will perform a background check on applicants to establish if the profile information of the lawyer is correct.
Clients are users who purchase services on the Advomi platform. Access to the Advomi platform is free for clients and clients are not subject to any application procedure before being granted access to the Advomi platform.
Clients can use the Advomi platform to inquire about and purchase services. Unless explicitly stated otherwise clients can purchase services through accepting quotes provided to them by account managers or lawyers on the Advomi platform.

For services which are provided by lawyers on their behalf on the Advomi platform Advomi serves as the client’s limited authorized payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting payments (via its payment service providers, if applicable) from a client, and remitting those payments to a lawyer. The client’s payment obligation to a lawyer will be satisfied upon receipt of payment by Advomi (or its payment services provider, as applicable), and Advomi (via its payment service providers, as applicable) is responsible for remitting the funds to the lawyer in the manner described in these terms and conditions. In the event that Advomi does not remit any such amounts to the lawyer, the lawyer will have recourse only against Advomi and not the client directly.
Fees and payment
Services may be ordered and purchased on the Advomi platform by using one of the following payment methods: Credit Card, PayPal, ot Advomi Balance.

The service purchased by the client must be delivered by the lawyer to the client according to the description of the service on the Advomi platform or to what is explicitly agreed upon by the client and the lawyer. Once the service is delivered the lawyer has to indicate the fact of the delivery through the Advomi lawyer interface.
Once the lawyer indicates that a service has been delivered the client can confirm the delivery or dispute it. If the client fails to act for more than 7 days after the lawyer has indicated that the respective service has been delivered the lawyer has the right to address the issue to the client account manager which will assess the contract and, if there are no obvious signs of misconduct, will mark the contract as completed.
