Every Shipment or Service, Including But Not Limited to Next Day, Same Day, Process Service and where applicable, eFiling, is Subject to Following Terms and Conditions:

In tendering this shipment for delivery and/or the performance of additional services, YOU, the Shipper, agree to these terms and conditions which no agent, servant, member or employee of NJ Lawyers Service, LLC (hereafter NJLS) may alter or modify:

a) SHIPPER AGREES THAT NJLS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS OR INCOME, ARISING FROM THE DELIVERY, MIS-DELIVERY OR NON-DELIVERY OF THIS SHIPMENT, OR THE NON-PERFORMANCE OF ASSOCIATED SERVICES; and

b) NJLS HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THIS SHIPMENT

c) Shipper's damages for NJLS' failure to deliver or perform the requested service within the guarantees specified by the Service Guide shall be limited to a refund of the charge for such delivery or service.

d) "Service Types" set forth on the Create New Shipment Page of the Shipment Center may be subject to additional fees, surcharges, or limitations and availability as set forth in the current Service Guide in effect at the time the shipment is tendered for delivery and/or service.

e) In consideration of the rate charged, it is agreed that the value of the shipment, whether consisting of one or more items, is not greater than $150.00, unless: (i) Shipper indicates the desire to purchase EXTRA INSURANCE by selecting that option from the Create New Shipment Page of the Shipment Center and (ii) shipper pays the additional fee required for EXTRA INSURANCE.

f) NJLS shall not be liable for loss or damage to shipments improperly packed or labeled, or for loss or damage caused by delay in delivery and/or service.

Additional Terms and Conditions pertaining to eFiling:

Note: Effective November 12, 2018, NJLS’s Process Service business has merged with its sister company, PM Legal. The work will continue to be handled daily by the same NJ team, in the same locations in Union and Cherry Hill, New Jersey, using the same servers across the state, at the same price. As the largest process server in the New York metro area, PM uses advanced technology to track and monitor its work in the field, assuring the best client service. NJLS courier operations will continue as NJLS. The Additional Terms and Conditions pertaining to eFiling reflect this change and are applicable to eFiling situations.

1. PMLEGAL efile shall not be used in a manner contrary to or in violation of any applicable federal, state, or local law, rule, or regulation, including without limitation, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C.A.1681 et seq., "FCRA"). Subscriber certifies that neither Subscriber nor any of its Users will use any information obtained from PMLEGAL efile as a factor in establishing a consumer's eligibility for credit or insurance to be used primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, for employment purposes, for residential tenant screening, for governmental licenses, or for other uses which are covered by the FCRA.

2. Usage Fees are those fees imposed by PMLEGAL for use of PMLEGAL efile and may vary based upon a number of factors including the State, Court, Case Type, Case Class, and features being used. Subscriber is solely responsible for all Usage Fees incurred for the use of PMLEGAL efile by its Users. All Usage Fees are exclusive of taxes and, if applicable, taxes will be added to Subscriber's invoice and are payable by Subscriber. PMLEGAL retains the right to change its Usage Fees at any time. The most current version of such fees will be included in these Additional Terms and Conditions pertaining to eFiling or elsewhere on the PMLEGAL website. As of July 25, 2017, such Usage Fees are as follows:

a. “Free” efiling: PMLEGAL will file inception case documents (complaint) free if PMLEGAL is also being requested to serve process in the case. Such process fees shall be in accordance with PMLEGAL’s existing fee schedule for Process Service. “Free” efiling is limited to no more than fifty (50) pages and no more than three (3) exhibits or addenda requiring filing at the time the case is initially filed. Any subsequent filings on such case will be subject to additional fees.

b. “Standard eFiling Charge”: PMLEGAL will charge a base fee of ten dollars ($10) for any individual efiling, such base charge limited to a document of no more than fifty (50) pages and no more than three (3) exhibits or addenda requiring filing at the same time. Subsequent filings on such case will be treated as such, and additional ten dollar ($10) fee imposed. In the event the particular filing exceeds either the page amount or exhibit amount, an additional ten dollars ($10) shall be charged for each subsequent fifty (50) pages and/or each additional set of three (3) exhibits. By way of example only, a filing consisting of 65 pages and 4 exhibits would incur the following charges:

Standard eFiling Charge: $10

Excess of 50, 4 exhibits $10

Additional charges relating to copy or print costs may also be incurred. NLS does not charge for the first fifty (50) pages of printing/copying; PMLEGAL charges five dollars ($5) for each additional set of up to fifty (50) pages. By way of example only, if PMLEGAL must print out and scan 65 pages, the client would incur this additional charge: Five dollars ($5).

3. Court Fees are the fees, charges, taxes and the like, due to a Court or other governmental entity for Documents tendered for filing, posting through PMLEGAL efile, or accessed by Subscriber through PMLEGAL efile in instances where PMLEGAL has agreed to collect such fees on behalf of the Subscriber, Court or governmental entity. PMLEGAL MAY COLLECT AND REMIT COURT FEES AS PART OF PMLEGAL EFILE IN SOME JURISDICTIONS. HOWEVER, SUBSCRIBER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PAYMENT OF COURT FEES. PMLEGAL MAY ALSO ASSESS AN ADMINISTRATIVE FEE FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COURT FEES.

4. You are solely responsible for maintaining and updating your Court ID and assigned Password used to access a Court’s efile site in accordance with applicable requirements set forth on that Court’s site, and provide same to PMLEGAL for completion of efiling with the Court. By providing your Court ID/PWD to PMLEGAL to perform efiling services, You grant PMLEGAL, its employees and contractors, express authority and permission to use your CourtID/PWD to perform efile services on your behalf and for no other purpose. This authority and permission is perpetual and on-going, until canceled, in a writing via email (to info@PMLegal.com) by You.

5. You are solely responsible for checking the PMLEGAL eFile Website to determine if notification of Service has been provided, or that a Document it attempted to E-File has been rejected by a Court. ALTHOUGH PMLEGAL MAY PROVIDE CERTAIN NOTIFICATIONS TO YOU ON THE STATUS OF EFILES, YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING PMLEGAL EFILE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS.

6. PMLEGAL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CHANGES TO COURT RULES OR FOR NOTIFYING SUBSCRIBER OF SUCH CHANGES.

7. You shall notify PMLEGAL immediately if an E-Filed Document is subsequently sealed by a Court and shall provide details in connection with such sealing which enable PMLEGAL to determine the action which should be taken in connection with the E-Filed Document at issue, if any.

NEITHER PMLEGAL NOR ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS OR CONTRACTORS WARRANT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION IN RECORDS AVAILABLE ON PMLEGAL EFILE, OR WARRANT THAT ANY PLEADINGS, MAIL OR OTHER DOCUMENTS WILL BE RECEIVED AND READ BY THEIR INTENDED RECIPIENTS.

PMLEGAL EFILE IS PROVIDED "AS IS WITH ALL FAULTS" AND ON AN "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS.

9. You represent and warrant that You will not provide PMLEGAL with any Protected Health Information (as that term is defined in 45 C.F.R. Sec. 160.103) or with Electronic Health Records or Patient Health Records (as those terms are defined in 42 U.S.C. Sec. 17921(5), and 42 U.S.C. Sec. 17921(11), respectively) or with information from such records without the execution of a separate agreement between You, other necessary parties and PMLEGAL’s President.

10. PMLEGAL has no control over the content of a Document transmitted on or through PMLEGAL efile, and PMLEGAL has no liability to You, other Users, Your clients, or other third parties for any claim based upon (a) rejection of a Document by a Court, (b) alleged defamation, libel, or slander contained in the Documents, (c) infringement of any intellectual property rights in a Document, and (d) the content and format of a Document. PMLEGAL has no liability to You, other Users, Your clients, customers, or other third parties based upon incorrect transmission or delivery instructions by you or other users of PMLEGAL efile, including, without limitation, liability for any losses in connection with the loss of privilege or for any other claimed injury or damages due to disclosure of a Document.

11. NEITHER PMLEGAL NOR ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS OR CONTRACTORS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND YOU WILL NOT SEEK TO HOLD PMLEGAL OR ANY SUCH PARTY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS, INJURY, CLAIM, LIABILTY OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND RESULTING FROM: (a) any errors in or omissions from PMLEGAL efile; (b) any delays or delivery problems resulting from use of PMLEGAL efile; (c) the unavailability or interruption of PMLEGAL efile or any of its features; (d) your use of PMLEGAL efile (regardless of whether you received assistance, information or advice from the Site or any PMLEGAL personnel); (e) transmission errors or any problems relating to telephone lines or other transmission devices, including the unavailability of telephone lines or other electronic transmission lines or devices; (f) any alteration or destruction of a Document resulting from third parties' unauthorized access to or use of PMLEGAL efile (e.g., computer "hackers"); or (g) any losses or damages or alteration or destruction of a Document or information on any party's computer system or elsewhere resulting from the transmission of computer "viruses" or other damaging or destructive software or software components by or through PMLEGAL efile, except in the case of willful or reckless acts on the part of PMLEGAL.

12. IN NO EVENT WILL PMLEGAL OR ANY OF ITS SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS OR CONTRACTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF USE, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, AND THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF PMLEGAL AND SUCH OTHER PARTIES, IF ANY, FOR ANY DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE STRICTLY LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT OF THE USAGE FEE YOU ACTUALLY PAID TO PMLEGAL FOR THE PARTICULAR TRANSACTIONAL USE OF PMLEGAL EFILE WHICH CAUSED THE DAMAGES, EXCLUSIVE OF COURT FEES. IF ANY REMEDY HEREUNDER IS DETERMINED TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS AND EXCLUSIONS OF WARRANTY AND DAMAGES SET FORTH HEREIN SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT.
