By using the OMDP (“the Firm”) web site (the “Site”), you agree to these terms and conditions of use:
No Attorney-Client Relationship
The provision of material on the Site is not intended to create, and will not create, an attorney-client relationship with you. You are welcome to contact the Firm or its attorneys, but doing so does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and the Firm. We cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Accordingly, please do not convey to us any information you regard as confidential until you speak with one of our attorneys and receive our authorization to send that information to us. Any information you convey to us via the Internet may not be secure, and information conveyed prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship may not be privileged or confidential.
No Legal Advice
All material on the Site is provided for informational purposes only and may not reflect the most current legal developments. The material on the Site should in no way be taken as an indication of future results and is not offered as legal or any other advice on any particular matter. The Firm and the contributing authors expressly disclaim all liability to any person with respect to the Site and the consequences of anything done or omitted to be done wholly or partly in reliance upon any of the material on the Site. No one, including existing clients of the Firm, should act or refrain from acting on the basis of any material on the Site without seeking the appropriate legal or other professional advice on the particular facts and circumstances at issue.

Except as provided above, you may not download, view, copy, print, reproduce, distribute, republish, display, post, transmit or modify any part of the Site in any form or by any means without our prior written consent (including by mirroring any part of the Site). The trademarks, service marks and logos used on this Site (“Marks”) are our registered or unregistered trademarks, or those of third parties as indicated. Nothing on this Site shall be construed as granting any license or right to use any Mark without our prior written consent, or that of any third party that owns a Mark displayed on the Site.

As a convenience to users, the Site may contain links to sites owned or operated by third parties (“Third Party Sites”). We have no control over and accept no responsibility for the content or performance of Third Party Sites, and a link to a Third Party Site does not mean that we endorse or make any representations about that site, its performance, its content, its owner, or its owner’s products or services.
You may not send unsolicited commercial e-mail to the e-mail addresses provided on the Site. The posting of e-mail addresses is not to be construed as, and does not constitute, consent to their use by any seller of services or by any compiler of mailing lists, or to any other non-authorized use without our prior permission. Spam, chain e-mails, advertising, and similar e-mail solicitations are expressly prohibited. You may not attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the Site or any related system or network or to breach Site security or authentication measures. You may not attempt to interfere with the proper functioning of the Site or the Firm, including, without limitation, via means of submitting a virus to the Site or the Firm, overloading, “flooding”, “mailbombing” or “crashing.”
