1. Peter is not a law firm

Bitproof, Inc. (“Peter”) isn't a law firm and does not provide any legal advice. Peter uses Artificial Intelligence to deliver automatically filled-in contract templates. Our Services are not substitutes for the advice of an attorney and if you need legal advice for your specific matter, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area. Peter is an intelligent contract wizard and at no time is an attorney-client relationship created between you and Peter or any employee or other person associated with Peter. Any information you provide us is not protected by attorney-client privilege or as work product. You are and will be representing yourself in any matter you undertake using the Services.

The documents and other materials provided by Peter are for informational purposes only; they are not legal advice and are not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. You understand that our providing of the Services to you is neither legal advice nor the practice of law, and that even if Peter lets you customize contracts, it is not aware of your particular needs and can't provide legal advice, check input for accuracy, legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation.

IF YOU WANT TO USE PETER BECAUSE YOU THINK IT CAN GIVE YOU LEGAL ADVICE, PLEASE DON'T USE PETER.


2. Peter uses the Blockchain technology to timestamp documents

Throughout the site and services provided by Bitproof, Inc., the terms "timestamping" or "notarizing" refer to the certification of the integrity and date of the submitted materials by sending a hash of the submitted materials in the Bitcoin blockchain. Peter is not a licensed notary public and cannot replace a licensed notary public. Peter is just an easy to access bridge to the Blockchain technology and Bitproof, Inc. can't be held responsible for any issue that might occur with the Bitcoin network or the Blockchain technology underlying the network. 

You understand that publishing your Content on the Service is not a substitute for registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office, the Writer’s Guild of America, or any other rights organization.

WE, AS WELL, CANNOT ENSURE THE VALIDITY IN COURT OF SUCH "BLOCKCHAIN PROOFS". THIS IS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT BLOCKCHAIN CERTIFICATION IS WHAT SUITS YOUR NEEDS, AND TO USE A LICENSED NOTARY PUBLIC OTHERWISE. BITPROOF, INC. CANNOT BE ASKED TO PROVE THE ACCURACY OF THE BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY IN COURT. BY USING THE BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY VIA PETER, YOU PLACE YOUR TRUST IN THE BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY, NOT IN BITPROOF, INC.
