2.3 The National Will Register’s VAT number is 925 7082 15.

2.4 The National Will Register operates the Website.

3. MATTERS RELATING TO YOU, YOUR STATUS AND YOUR INFORMATION

3.1 Access to the Website may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries.  If You access the Website from outside the Serviced Countries You do so at Your own risk and You are responsible for compliance with the laws of Your jurisdiction.

3.2 By placing an order for Online Services through the Website, You warrant to The National Will Register that You are: (a) legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and (b) at least 18 years old; and (c) using or authorised to use the relevant Online Service in the course of a business (d) resident in one of the Serviced Countries; and (e) accessing the Website from a Serviced Country.

4. SEARCH SERVICES

4.1 Registration of Will Documents is not mandatory.  Not all Will Documents are registered with The National Will Register.  Use of the Search Service does not relieve You or any person on whose behalf a Search Request is submitted from making enquiries of persons who may reasonably be supposed to have a Will Document in their possession.

4.2 The National Will Register only carries out the Reach Will Search service by contacting firms or other persons within the post code areas specified by the person originating the Search Request, if those firms or persons appear on the database maintained by The National Will Register.  The National Will Register relies upon third parties to provide it with information as to the existence of firms or persons which are likely to hold Will Documents.  Whilst The National Will Register takes reasonable steps to ensure that its database of such firms or persons is up to date, The National Will Register does not guarantee that all relevant firms or persons will be contacted when a Reach Will Search is undertaken.  The National Will Register will not be liable to You or any other person if any person or firm holding a Will Document does not appear on The National Will Register’s database of firms or persons which are likely to hold Will Documents.

4.3 Where a firm or person that is contacted by The National Will Register in connection with a Reach Will Search has more than one office, only one of those offices will be contacted.

4.4 Because the methodology used by The National Will Register to search for Will Documents relies upon third parties either registering Will Documents or responding to requests for information in relation to Will Documents that they hold, The National Will Register does not guarantee that use of the Search Service will result in the location of a Will Document held by a third party.  The National Will Register will not be liable to You or any other person if for any reason a Will Document is discovered subsequent to a Search Request which does not reveal the existence of a Will Document.

4.5 Due to the fact that The National Will Register does not store Will Documents and the Search Service only involves The National Will Register passing on Your Search Request to third parties, The National Will Register hereby excludes to the fullest extent permitted by law any liability for:

4.5.1 any failure to find or delay in finding a Will Document;

4.5.2 the delivery by a third party of any Will Document to an incorrect address;

4.5.3 any loss of a Will Document by any third party; and/or

4.5.4 any failure by any third party to store a Will Document appropriately.

4.6 Due to the fact that The National Will Register does not generate data itself relating to the existence or whereabouts of Will Documents, but relies on third parties to provide that data, The National Will Register hereby excludes to the fullest extent permitted by law any liability to You or any other person for:

4.6.1 the failure of any person to register with The National Will Register any Will Document in that person’s possession;

4.6.2 any delay between the provision of data to The National Will Register, and the uploading of that data into the Will Register;

4.6.3 the provision of inaccurate or incomplete information relating to any Will Document by any person;

4.6.4 the failure by any person to update information or data held by The National Will Register;

4.6.5 the removal of information relating to any Will Document by any person who appears to The National Will Register to be entitled to remove it; and/or

4.6.6 the failure of any person making a Search Request to provide accurate or complete details or information.

4.7 Where The National Will Register undertakes to enquire of solicitors or other third parties in any particular locality for the existence of a Will Document, because The National Will Register relies on others to provide up to date information on the details of Solicitors’ and other businesses and for those persons to respond to enquiries generated by The National Will Register, The National Will Register hereby excludes to the fullest extent permitted by law any liability to You or any other person for:

4.7.1 the failure by any person holding any Will Document to respond to an enquiry;

4.7.2 the failure to enquire of the person who holds the Will Document for which a Search Request has been made;

4.7.3 the fact that the firm or person holding a Will Document does not appear on the database of firms or persons likely to hold Will Documents maintained by The National Will Register;

4.7.4 any Will Document for which a Search Request has been made having been made or being held in a different locality; and/or

4.7.5 the failure of any response to The National Will Register’s enquiry from a person holding a Will Document reaching the person making Search Request.

4.8 Searches of the The National Will Register data are made at the time of a Search Request and are not subsequently updated. Accordingly, only information held within the The National Will Register data at the time of the Search Request will be revealed by a Search Request and any subsequent updating of the The National Will Register data will not result in updating of any previous Search Request.

4.9 Where a Register Will Search or a Reach Will Search reveals the existence or possible existence of a Will Document in respect of which it has received a Search Request, and the registered holder of that Will Document:

4.9.1 holds the Will Document in a professional capacity but neglects or refuses to contact the person making the Search Request, The National Will Register may, if (but only if) it becomes aware of such neglect or refusal, inform the person making the Search Request that a Will Document being sought exists or may exist, but will not in the absence of a valid order made by a court of competent jurisdiction disclose the identity of the person who holds or who may hold a Will Document being sought; or

4.9.2 is the Testator or some other person who does not hold the Will Document in a professional capacity, The National Will Register may disclose details of any data uploaded by the person who registered the Will Document at any time to any person whom it reasonably believes may be legally entitled to have the same (e.g. because they are the person or legal personal representative of the person who executed a Will Document details of which are registered using the Registration Service) on production of such evidence of entitlement as The National Will Register may in its reasonable discretion deem appropriate.

5. USE OF ONLINE SERVICES

5.1 You are responsible for the acts and/or omissions of any persons making use of Your Identity(ies) whether being authorised to do so or not.  You will promptly notify Certainty on becoming aware of any Identity and/or password being known and/or available to a third party and You will immediately take all necessary steps to change the password associated with any Identity which has been compromised.

5.5 Where at any time The National Will Register becomes aware that You are not complying with the Terms of Supply including but not limited to access to or use of the Online Services or that there has been or may be unauthorised access to or use of any Online Service, The National Will Register reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate Your access to any Online Services, and will notify You in the event that suspension or termination occurs. The National Will Register has discretion to restore the Your access where You have demonstrated to The National Will Register’s reasonable satisfaction that such non-compliance has ceased and the You are taking all reasonable steps to prevent its recurrence.

6.5 Where The National Will Register renders an invoice to You that is not paid at the time the Online Service that is being invoiced is ordered, payment of such invoice shall be due when the invoice is delivered.  If The National Will Register does not receive payment within 28 days after the invoice date it may be able to claim interest under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and on at least 5 days’ notice, suspend any or all of the Online Services until payment of the invoice, any interest and any other sums due to Certainty.  If Certainty suspends Your access to the Online Services under this clause 6.5 it does not guarantee that it will be able to recommence the provision of such Online Services to You in the same way as they were provided prior to the suspension, such as, by way of example only, the prominence or positioning of advertising on the Website.
