These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) govern your use of all websites and mobile applications owned or operated by Rebecca Zung, LLC (“RZ” “we” or “us”), including the website located at www.breakingfreefromdivorce.com (the “Site”) and any other websites, applications, interactive features, widgets and resources offered by RZ through Internet websites, mobile devices or other platforms (all of which are collectively referred to as the “RZ Service” or “Service”). Please read these Terms carefully. By using the RZ Service, you affirm that you have read and understand, and agree to be bound by, these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not use the RZ Service.
Your use of certain portions of the Service may be subject to additional terms and conditions ("Additional Terms"). Where Additional Terms apply, we will make them available for you to read through your use of that portion of the Service. By using that portion of the Service, you agree to the Additional Terms.
RZ is not a law firm and your use of the Service does not and will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and RZ. We do not provide legal advice through the Service. The Service may facilitate access or introductions to an attorney or other licensed professionals in various ways, including, for example, by providing you with their contact information. These services will not create an attorney-client relationship between you and RZ.
Because your relationship to the law and the legal system is inherently personal, no general information or technological tools like those that we provide will be appropriate for every circumstance. If you need legal advice for your specific situation, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.
Also, because the law often changes and is different in different jurisdictions, RZ does not guarantee that all of the information on the Site or Service is current, complete, or accurate.
1. Your Responsibilities.

You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your username and password and agree not to transfer or resell your use of or access to the Service to any third party. YOU ARE ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD AND FOR ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CONDUCTED THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT.
