a. Business Entity Formations
As every business is unique and laws vary from state to state, it is impossible for MCW to guarantee that the options selected by you are the best for your particular situation, which varies depending on such things as the shareholders/members or directors of your corporation or LLC. You acknowledge that MCW does not know your financial or tax situation and did not provide you with any legal advice on whether to be a C or S corporation, LLC or DBA. YOU ARE HEREBY ADVISED TO CONSULT YOUR OWN PROFESSIONAL LEGAL OR TAX CONSULTANT REGARDING THESE MATTERS.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT UNLESS INFORMED OTHERWISE WE WILL ASSUME A FISCAL YEAR END FOR YOUR COMPANY OF DECEMBER 31. All LLC’s will be filed with a “perpetual” existence or “maximum allowable years” unless informed otherwise. Unless specified on your order, we will assume you request “, Inc.” as your corporate ending for corporations and “, LLC” as the ending for an LLC.
Further, you acknowledge that after your business has been incorporated, or your LLC has been formed, it is your responsibility to make sure that the company complies with all state, local and federal laws (and international laws if applicable) including, but not limited, to applying for necessary licenses, permits, or tax registrations.
b. Signatures and Electronic Signatures
You acknowledge that by submitting an order to MCW either via web or phone that you are allowing us to sign paperwork, electronically or otherwise, on your behalf as an “authorized representative”, “organizer” or “incorporator”. You also authorize MCW to affix or transmit your electronic signature and/or data to documents, where applicable. You also agree to provide a conformed copy executed by you for any matter for which an electronic signature has been attached.
c. Name Availability
MCW will only check your requested name(s) in the entity database in the state of filing and will not perform internet searches for existing uses of the name or perform federal or local trademark or trade name searches. You acknowledge that your company name may be available in one state but may not be available in another state or that your company name may also be registered as a DBA or fictitious business name in a county or state, but not considered a name conflict by the county or state.
d. Post-Formation Filings
MCW performs filings for existing companies that may change, modify or close the business entity. You acknowledge that making changes to or closing an existing business entity may have legal and or other tax consequences and that you are fully responsible for meeting these requirements. You acknowledge that any filing you make to change, close or otherwise submit information on your existing business entity has been approved by all company stakeholders and that MCW did not offer any legal or tax advice as to which filing would be best for your situation.
e. Processing Time
You acknowledge that although we provide estimates as to the amount of time it will take to process your order, there is no guarantee as to the length of time each state will take to process a filing or the length of time the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will take to issue an FEIN number for the Company, nor can we predict the state’s workload, seasonal increase in demand, the time the Post Office or Courier Service will take to send a document or any other time estimate. We will go to great lengths to process orders as fast as possible, but, for the most part, we are dependent upon the filing system of each state, the IRS system for issuing FEINs and U.S. Postal Service for delivery and each individual state to process the filing. You acknowledge that MCW shall not be responsible or liable for any penalty, late fees, interest, cancellation or any other claims, damages or other liabilities incurred by you due to an order not being completed by a specified date. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you submit your order with sufficient time to allow for the processing and completion of your order for you to meet any due date, deadline or other obligation you may have (i.e. real estate sale or purchase closing date).
f. Delivery Time
You acknowledge that you can select the method of shipping for the completed order of either First Class Mail (U.S. Postal Service) or Federal Express (Standard Overnight if available to your area, otherwise will be shipped by 2nd Day Air). You acknowledge that only Federal Express orders can be tracked and though while reliable, the delivery estimate by Federal Express is not guaranteed.
g. International Orders
MCW only ships to the countries and territories listed in the dropdown on our order forms; we reserve the right to cancel orders without notification from any country not listed on the order forms (with a full refund if payment has been received). All prices are shown in US dollars. It is important that you consult your local laws and, if necessary, contact an attorney to see if you have any restrictions on which type of US company may operate in your home country. If you do not provide a Social Security Number or ITIN, MCW will obtain the Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) on your behalf (if you order this service), but this will delay the obtainment of your FEIN for two weeks or more depending on the IRS workload and your signature and return of any necessary documents.
h. International Shipping and Delivery
MCW ships via the United States Postal Service (USPS). Depending on your location and the value of your order, we may ship via Global Express Guaranteed, Express Mail International or Priority Mail International. Please note that not all methods of international shipping from the USPS will have detailed tracking, confirmation of delivery or a guaranteed delivery time which is ultimately determined by your local postal service. Please note that estimates on delivery times do NOT include customs delays or any fees imposed by your home country (if any) which will vary depending on your home country’s customs policies. You acknowledge that you are liable for payment of any customs or import fees, taxes or duties for any shipment held by your customs office, and MCW is not responsible or liable for payment of said fees, taxes or duties.
i. Registered Agent Service
If you order our Registered Agent Service and file any corporate documents that list the MCW Registered Agent, the documents filed listing MCW as the Registered Agent must use the correct company name and address (which may vary by state). The correct name and address for the MCW Registered Agent will be provided to you after a paid order is received. If a document is not filed by MCW, it is your responsibility to make sure the correct name, street address and any email address for the MCW Registered Agent is correctly entered into the documents you file.
You acknowledge that our Registered Agent Service will deliver documents to the address and email address you provided. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have the correct address and email address on file at all times. For any Service of Process (SOP) documents received, we will forward to domestic (US) addresses via FedEx Saver for free up to two times per year and then charge $25 per additional SOP in that 12-month period; alternatively, you can elect to receive the SOP electronically for free. For international addresses, documents will be forwarded via email unless a physical signature is required; otherwise, documents will be sent via the USPS.
The Registered Agent’s address cannot be used as your Company’s business or mailing address. The registered Agent is not a mail forwarding service. The Registered Agent has a statutory responsibility to accept official state documents and legal documents (should your company be sued) and forward them to you.
The Registered Agent and Registered Agent service is not responsible for maintaining your Company in Good or Active status with the state(s) where your company is filed. You can either place an order for us to file the Annual Report(s) on our site or order our MyCompanyWorks Premium™ service.
j. MyCompanyWorks Premium™ and ComplianceLock™ (“CL”)
ComplianceLock Email Alerts: You acknowledge that the alerts (System Alerts) include reminder emails sent to the email address of the account on record at various times throughout the year including: a) if that entity should have an “Annual Report” or other annual filing due b) a Quarterly alert listing all Federal Tax deadlines (we alert you to FEDERAL deadlines for taxes, however, it is your responsibility to meet state or local deadlines which you can set “Custom Alerts” for in CL) c) a Quarterly reminder of any meetings to be held d) a reminder that a status check will be performed. You may also set “Custom Alerts”. You also have the option of adding other recipients to receive these alerts and acknowledges that the added recipient has given permission to be sent these alerts. You acknowledge that failure to read these emails or inability to receive the email alerts does not create any liability on the part of MCW. MCW will not be liable for your failure to act on alerts.
Text Alerts (SMS): You have the option of receiving text or “SMS” alerts for all System Alerts provided that you insert your 10-digit US-based phone number in the appropriate settings area of CL. Note that MCW does not charge to send these text alerts (an average of 12 per year) but regular text messaging rates may apply from your cell phone provider. You acknowledge that your failure to read or inability to receive the text alerts does not create any liability on the part of MCW.
Status Monitoring: MCW will check your company’s status on a bi-annual basis. The status check includes verifying your company is in active status and notifying you if it is not. It is your responsibility to make sure you check your email to receive these notices and take appropriate action to get your company back into good standing. MCW will provide instructions for getting your company back into active standing but will quote and charge a fee if you request MCW to do these actions on your behalf. You acknowledge that failure to read the email or inability to receive the email does not create any liability on the part of MCW. Further, MCW will not be liable for any loss of good standing of an entity for any reason.
Minutes: The minutes, resolutions and consents generated by CL are based on forms that have been shown to be legally valid in most situations with information that is provided by you. However, the accuracy and completeness of each form to your particular situation or state statute is not guaranteed. If you, based on your own judgment, do not believe the forms to meet the needs of a particular situation (such as a complex legal, financial or tax situation), it is your responsibility to review the specific laws of the state where these forms are to be used and/or confer with your attorney, accountant or other advisor if necessary. MCW MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE USE OR LEGAL STATUS OF THE FORMS IN CL. Further, you authorize that the company you enable the CL service for is in actual existence and all documents created by the system are representative of an active company, in good standing and will not misrepresent the status or compliance of the company.
Managed Annual Report Service: Approximately sixty-five days before an Annual Report is due for your company, we will email you to advise you that we will automatically generate an Annual Report order and email. You must review the order email and inform us immediately if any names, addresses, or other information is incorrect or needs to be updated. You authorize us to charge your payment method on file for the required state filing fees, and we will file the Annual Report with the state, based on the information in the Annual Report order form and any corrections or updates you provide to us in writing. If we find that your company must be reinstated, we will advise you of any additional state filing fees and our service fee to reinstate your company with the State. Each additional state where your company is “foreign qualified” is an additional fee of $20 per state (plus any state fees). Additionally:
a. If payment for the state fees portion of your order is not received at least 30 days before the due date of your Annual Report, then we cannot guarantee that your report will be filed on time. If payment is not received for state fees, it is understood that we will not and cannot file your Annual Report.
b. If you order Premium within 30 days of your Annual Report due date, then we cannot guarantee your Initial or Annual Report will be filed in time but will use commercially reasonable efforts to file it in time.
c. In addition, your existing company must be in Good Standing with the state with no penalties or additional fees due in order to qualify for Premium.
d. In some states, the Annual Report is actually a tax return that we cannot file and goes beyond the scope of our services. If this is the case, we will not file your Annual Report but will instead notify you via email at least 30 days before it is due with the information concerning the appropriate form, fees and basic instructions for you to complete it.
k. Virtual Office (not available in all states)
If you order the Virtual Office service, MCW will provision the street address, suite number, voice line and FAX line once the company name is confirmed (or the company is verified as active) and your service will begin on this date. Note that we must receive a signed and notarized USPS Form 1583 and Mailbox Agreement (which we will send to you for signature) before mail can be officially received and forwarded. IMPORTANT: By default, we do NOT enable E911 service on the voice line but can provide this service for an additional $2.00/month upon your request. ANY 911 CALLS MADE ON YOUR VOICE LINE WITHOUT ENABLING E911 WILL RESULT IN A CHARGE OF $85.00 TO YOUR ACCOUNT TO COVER LOCAL FIRST RESPONDER COSTS.
l. Mail Forwarding (not available in all states)
Mail forwarding to a US address will occur once a week by USPS 1st Class Mail; mail forwarding for international clients will occur once a month by USPS First Class Mail International (contact us if you wish to pay more for more frequent mailings). If an item we received exceeds USPS 1st Class Mail postage, MCW will generate an invoice to be paid to ship the parcel to your destination via your choice of Priority Mail or Federal Express. All mail and packages received and forwarded to you are subject to USPS laws, rules and regulations. Mail can be held for up to 60 days and you have the option to have us open and scan all received mail. See your Mailbox Agreement for further details.
m. Connecticut Users
If you are elected to act as the Registered Agent for your company in Connecticut, the state will send you a confirmation email to the Registered Agent email address you provided on your order. You must reply to this email within 48 hours of the date your filing was submitted to the state or the state will rescind your filing. If the filing is rejected or cancelled by the state due to your failure to reply to the email, the resubmission of your filing will incur a reasonable additional service fee.
n. Louisiana Users
If you are elected to act as the Registered Agent for your company in Louisiana, the state will send you a confirmation email to the Registered Agent email address you provided in your order. You must reply to this email within 5 business days of the date your filing was submitted to the state, or the state will rescind your filing. If the filing is rejected or cancelled by the state due to your failure to reply to the email, the resubmission of your filing will incur a reasonable additional service fee.
o. Nevada Registered Agent Service
By placing an order with MCW for Registered Agent service in Nevada, you are making a statement that the Contact Name and Contact Address listed on the order is the custodian of records for the company. You can update this custodian of records by logging into the My Account Dashboard and updating “My Registered Agent” or otherwise notifying us via fax or email. If you enter into a Voting Trust Agreement, you must provide MCW with a copy of any Voting Trust Agreement and any extension of a Voting Trust Agreement.
p. North Carolina Users
North Carolina residents can review the documents we will file before purchase or after they are prepared and before submission. The form can be provided during the checkout process or by contacting us at [email protected]. All forms for North Carolina entities are reviewed annually by an attorney licensed in North Carolina and MCW will provide proof of such review by written request.
a. Third-Party Goods and Services
We may allow access to or advertise certain third-party product or service providers (“Merchants”) from which you may purchase certain goods or services. You understand that we do not operate or control the products or services offered by Merchants. Merchants are responsible for all aspects of order processing, fulfillment, billing and customer service. We are not a party to the transactions entered into between you and Merchants. You agree that use of or purchase from such Merchants is AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND IS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND BY US, EXPRESSED, IMPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF TITLE, FITNESS FOR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE WE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND MERCHANTS OR FOR ANY INFORMATION APPEARING ON MERCHANT SITES OR ANY OTHER SITE LINKED TO OUR SITE.
b. Third-Party Policies
All rules, policies (including privacy policies) and operating procedures of Merchants will apply to you while on any Merchant sites. We are not responsible for information provided by you to Merchants. We and the Merchants are independent contractors and neither party has authority to make any representations or commitments on behalf of the other.
a. Payment Information
You represent and warrant that if you are purchasing something from us or from Merchants that (i) any credit information you supply is true and complete, (ii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, (iii) that you are authorized to use the payment method for payment of the purchase, and (iv) you will pay the charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including any applicable taxes. You hereby indemnify us from all costs, expenses, damages and fees, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, arising out of your failure to pay or the provision of inaccurate credit information. We will charge interest on overdue and unpaid accounts. For security and fraud prevention purposes, MCW, in its sole and absolute discretion, may require verification of identity, address and other information, to be provided by you and/or the owner of the payment method before we process the rest of your order. MCW reserves the right to cancel and refund directly to the payment method without notification, any order that cannot be verified or that we determine, in our sole discretion, does not meet our security standards.
MCW accepts certain digital currencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.) for payment known as “cryptocurrencies” (Crypto) as indicated on our online order forms. We utilize the Coinbase service to process these transactions. It is important that you enter Crypto addresses accurately in Coinbase and complete payments in a timely manner. If you input the Crypto address incorrectly the payment may be lost and if you do not complete the payment within 10 minutes the price may change. If you qualify for a refund, your refund will be issued via the Crypto you utilized for payment, in the United States Dollar (USD) value of the original purchase (less any applicable fees). You acknowledge that if the value of the Crypto has risen since the time of your purchase, you will receive less Crypto than you paid at the time of your purchase.
Some products or services are billed on a recurring basis (“Renewals”) indicated on the specific order form and your electronic invoice (“yr” = year, “qtr” = quarterly, “mo” = monthly). MCW will automatically bill you for these services provided you do not cancel them before the due date. For yearly services, email notices will be sent 60, 30 and 7 days (a total of 3 notices) to the email address we have on file BEFORE charging your card. This gives you time to cancel the service either online through the “My Account” section of our Site or email sent to MCW, subject to any State fees and filing requirements to cancel the service. If the renewal is provided by a third party, then they will invoice you separately before the renewal is due. By providing payment information to MCW you agree and consent to these renewals and to be automatically charged for the renewal payment when due. You acknowledge that you are responsible for renewal payments even if an order is not completed and/or there are matters beyond our control preventing us from completing or fulfilling your order, unless the renewal service is properly cancelled before the renewal payment due date. It is further your responsibility to ensure that the email address and payment method we have on file has current information, including account number, billing address and expiration date, all of which can be updated via the “My Account” section of our Site.
c. International Payments
For security and fraud prevention purposes, MCW, in its sole and absolute discretion, may require verification of identity, address and other information, to be provided by you and/or the owner of the payment method before we process the rest of your order. MCW reserves the right to cancel and refund directly to the payment method, any order without notification that cannot be verified or we determine does not meet our security standards.
d. Virtual Office VOIP Service
Virtual Office billing is processed monthly and can be cancelled anytime (either via email or the “My Account” section of our Site) with notice at least 2 business days before the next scheduled billing date (provided there is no outstanding balance due on the account). Late payments are subject to a $25 late fee if received after the due date and account cancellation after 2 weeks of non-payment. Inbound phone calls and faxes are included in the monthly fee provided the volume of minutes used are not deemed abusive by MCW.
Outbound calls and faxes are included in the monthly fee up to 1000 minutes per month. Minutes beyond that amount are billed at $0.04/minute to calls in the US/Canada and $0.10/minute or higher (depending on international location dialed; see the My Account section for pricing details) for international calls. Forwarded calls are free to phone numbers in the US and Canada and $0.10/minute or higher (depending on international location dialed) for international calls.
Billing for voice and FAX usage beyond the given terms will be billed to the credit card on file (or we will create an invoice for the charge which can be paid online); service will be suspended until all outstanding invoices are paid within 10 business days. Excessive usage/billing or abusive/threatening calls on your account may subject the account to suspension and/or termination by MCW. You acknowledge that the VOIP service is on the public Internet and that it is your responsibility to secure it from unauthorized intrusion(s) which may result in denial of services or financial losses. You will not hold MCW or its employees liable for any damages or losses that may result from unauthorized intrusion(s) on your VOIP service. In addition, you understand that you are financially responsible for all calls that are utilized using your VOIP credentials.
e. Returned Checks and Chargebacks
A $35 fee will be added to all checks returned to MCW due to non-sufficient funds or closed accounts plus any and all other collections fees or cost incurred by MCW. In addition, a bank service fee will be charged on these checks. All chargeback attempts on a credit card you have utilized for our services will be sent to collections with a $50 fee and MCW reserves the right to suspend your account and any access to your account. A chargeback is when you contact your financial institution or bank with the intent of canceling a service without first contacting us. Per your cardholder agreement with your credit card company, you are to dispute charges with the merchant first. MCW will never decline a legitimate refund request made pursuant to these Terms. However, if you improperly request a chargeback in violation of these Terms, as determined by MCW in its sole discretion, MCW will consider the order fraudulent and take action to rescind or dissolve any entity that we have formed for you and cancel any related services like Virtual Office, Registered Agent, etc. as well as adding any required state fees to the collections account.
a. Providing Correct Information
You acknowledge that you are responsible for submitting truthful, accurate, and correct information to MCW including spelling of persons’ names, business names, addresses and other order information.
When placing an order for Services, you represent and warrant that (i) you are at least 18 years old and have the legal authority to place an order for Services; (ii) you have obtained the consent of all necessary parties, whether from within your business entity or outside third parties, to proceed with ordering the Services; and (iii) neither you nor your business entity is involved in litigation or threatened to be made a party to litigation that would prohibit you from proceeding with ordering the Services.
c. Compliance with Laws
You agree to comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of the Site and the Content and Materials provided therein.
d. Purchase by an Agent
You agree that if MCW services are purchased by an agent (attorney, CPA, employee, consultant, friend, etc.) you are nonetheless bound by these Terms. Agents, including resellers, may receive a discounted rate, and this rate is a discount on the retail prices listed on our Site and does not apply to any special or sale prices.
e. Reseller Option
You agree that if you have selected the “Reseller Option”, that you will receive access to “unbranded” versions of forms, handbooks and checklists (materials) that are property of MCW, and MCW grants you license to use these materials once for each paid order, provided you do not modify or sell them without MCW’s written consent. Client acknowledges that while MCW will make every effort to omit or delete its name, logo or MCW information from your order material, there may be instances or circumstances when this cannot be accomplished.
Transmission of email to MCW is at your own risk. MCW will not accept responsibility for your transmission of confidential information or obligation to protect that information. A valid email address is required to submit an order to MCW, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your email address is current with us at all times for billing and notification purposes. You acknowledge that transmission of emails from MCW to you is also made at your own risk.
g. “My Account” Area of Site
Your account can be accessed 24/7 via the “My Account” portion of our Site. “Lifetime Access” to the My Account area is defined as the lifetime of MCW as an operating business entity. Whomever has access to your account has billing privileges; you acknowledge and agree that you must protect your account as you would your bank account. Client acknowledges that MCW reserves the right to suspend and deny access to the “My Account” portion of MCW’s website due to any past due Renewal charges, chargebacks or fraud related to the account.
h. Startup Wizard
The Startup Wizard is provided to you “as is” and covers the major tasks most companies would need to complete to properly set up a company. While we believe that the Startup Wizard is comprehensive and accurate, we cannot foresee or predict every scenario for every company, and your company may have unique requirements that are not covered by the Startup Wizard. It is ultimately your responsibility to comply with all federal, state and local laws and regulations. We cannot guarantee regulatory compliance, but Startup Wizard will help you with most requirements. The information contained in the Startup Wizard will require your own careful review, completion and may require further action on your part in starting your Company.
You acknowledge that “Free Company Alerts” included with our services will include a reminder email sent to the email address of the account on record if that entity should have an “Annual Report” or similar annual filing due in the near future. You acknowledge that your failure to read the email for any reason does not create any liability on the part of MCW. Note that some states have an additional tax filing requirement through your respective Tax Department, so an Annual Report filing may not satisfy that requirement. MCW WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF GOOD STANDING OF AN ENTITY FOR ANY REASON. IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE YOUR ANNUAL REPORTS AND TAX OBLIGATIONS ARE MET.
j. Responsible Party for Billing
The person that creates an account and submits an order (or acknowledges a phone order by accepting our Terms via email) is the responsible party for billing and payment for that account. If the account becomes delinquent or the responsible party for billing cannot be reached, the entity officers, directors, partners, and/or members will assume responsibility. To change the responsible party for billing, the account owner must consent to the transfer in writing and assign a new account owner who must accept our Terms and agree in writing to become the responsible party for billing.

The foregoing “Satisfaction Guarantee” is only available during the first month of recurring Services, and does not apply to any months thereafter.

Products or services for which refunds have been issued become property again of MCW.

If an order is cancelled after payment has been taken by MCW but before a name check has been completed, MCW will refund the total order amount minus a $25 processing fee. If the order is cancelled after the name check has been completed but before the formation documents have been created, MCW will refund the total order amount less a $50 processing fee. If the order is cancelled after the formation documents are created, MCW will refund the total amount of the order less a $75 processing fee provided that the formation document is not already filed with the state. Note that orders cannot be cancelled after they have been shipped to the state or county filing office for processing.
c. Post-Formation Filings

If the order is cancelled after the filing documents are created, MCW will refund the total amount of the order less a $75 processing fee provided that the formation document is not already filed with the state.

d. Registered Agent Service
You acknowledge that if you no longer wish to utilize MCW’s Registered Agent Service in any jurisdiction, you must:
1. Assign another Registered Agent in said jurisdiction including paying all fees related to changing the agent including appointment and/or resignation fees; and
2. Notify MCW that you have properly changed Registered Agents before the next renewal due date by sending proof of the change (copy of the filing, state receipt, scan, etc.) via fax, email, postal mail or courier; Or
3. Agree to allow MCW to resign as the Registered Agent subject to payment of any state filing fees and MCW service fees.
You acknowledge that if you discontinue business operations, voluntarily or not, you must:
1. Properly dissolve, cancel, withdraw or otherwise properly terminate the entity. Note that “Administration Dissolution” or any other type of dissolution that is initiated by the state for failing to comply with their maintenance requirements is NOT considered a proper dissolution as MCW will still be listed as the responsible Registered Agent. A proper dissolution is initiated by the company and includes paying all fees and filing all required forms; and
2. Notify MCW that you have properly discontinued business operations by the renewal due date by sending proof of the change (copy of the filing, state receipt, scan, etc.) via fax, email, postal mail or courier.
Note that if these conditions are not satisfied by the next renewal due date, you will be responsible for the annual fee and not subject to prorated calculation. If payment is not received by the due date, your account will be suspended and a late fee of $25 will be assessed. If payment is not received within 30 days after the due date, MCW reserves the right to resign the registered agent appointment with the state and send the account to collections for any fees incurred as well as a $49 processing fee. MCW will also hold any documents for forwarding to you until the account is paid in full.
e. Phone Orders
If an order is placed by phone via one of our employees and is subsequently cancelled by you, the order will incur a $25 convenience fee which is in addition to the cancellation fees above.
f. Orders Not Received
You have 14 days after we ship to a US address to notify us if you have not received your completed order via the chosen shipping method. If you notify us of non-receipt within that 14-day window, MCW will replace the order at our cost. If you notify us after the 14-day window, you will be responsible for any fees related to replacing the lost formation documents, though MCW will provide assistance in the process. If you requested Federal Express shipping and the package can be tracked as “delivered”, MCW will assume the package was delivered regardless if you signed for the package or not or if you have a “signature waiver” on file with Federal Express.
g. International Orders Not Received
Lost international packages or packages that cannot be confirmed as delivered are your responsibility, provided MCW shipped to the correct address entered on our order forms. You will be responsible for any fees related to replacing the lost formation documents, though MCW will provide assistance in the process. If you requested Federal Express shipping and the package can be tracked as “delivered”, MCW will assume the package was delivered regardless if you signed for the package or not or have a “signature waiver” on file with Federal Express.
h. Limitations on Returns and Refunds
Any and all fees paid to the Secretary of State or local correspondents cannot be refunded under any circumstances. If the corporation is deficiently formed and/or an error is made on the part of MCW, MCW will undertake reasonable efforts to cure and amend any necessary documentation, or will refund the fees paid to MCW (and possibly to the applicable state entity) at the sole discretion of MCW. In addition, while MCW will go to reasonable efforts to accommodate our customers, mechanical or human error may occur. Thus, if for any reason your incorporation request, LLC formation request, or other preparation request is unreasonably delayed, destroyed, misplaced, or otherwise missing, MCW WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR COMPENSATORY DAMAGES. YOUR SOLE REMEDY WITH MCW WILL BE A COMPLETE REFUND OF ANY AND ALL FEES PAID TO MCW FOR OUR SERVICES.

Any cause of action by you with respect to the Site (and/or any information, Documents, products or services related thereto) must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of action arose or be forever waived and barred. The language in these Terms shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party. These Terms and all incorporated agreements and your information may be automatically assigned by us in our sole discretion to a third party in the event of an acquisition, sale or merger.

To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site is in conflict or inconsistent with these Terms, these Terms shall take precedence. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. Our rights under these Terms shall survive any termination of these Terms. The rule of construction of construing against the drafter does not apply to these Terms.
Any legal controversy or legal claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our services, excluding legal action taken by us to collect or recover damages for, or obtain any injunction relating to, Site operations, intellectual property, and our services, shall be settled solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of JAMS.

The arbitration shall be conducted in Las Vegas, Nevada, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof. Either you or us may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Las Vegas, Nevada necessary to protect the rights or property of you and us pending the completion of arbitration. Each party shall bear one-half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred through JAMS.
