This Client Portal Agreement is made by and between Kahn, Berman, Solomon, Taibel & Mogol, P.A. (KBST&M) and you, the “Client”, effective on the date it is executed by the Firm’s authorized representative upon the following terms and conditions:
KBST&M provides a voluntary Client Portal (secure internet site) to permit easy and secure electronic transfer of documents between its Clients and the Firm; as well as ongoing Client access to certain documents created or maintained by the Firm. KBST&M has sole discretion to decide which types of documents can be uploaded or viewed on the Client Portal.
KBST&M will use its best efforts to provide 24 hour daily availability of the Client Portal. However, the Firm makes no representation or warranty that a 24 hour service will be available. The Client agrees and acknowledges that the Client Portal will, at times, be unavailable due to regularly scheduled maintenance, service upgrades, or other mechanical or electronic failures.
The Client agrees to access the Client Portal using an up to date supported browser (Internet Explorer 7 (or higher), Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari).
KBST&M will use its best efforts to make the Client Portal secure from unauthorized access. The Client Portal operating system and application software will be updated and virus-scanned regularly. However, the Client recognizes that there is no completely secure system for electronic data transfer. KBST&M MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE EFFICACY OF THE SECURITY OF THE CLIENT PORTAL AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMED, ACTUAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE ARISING FROM ANY BREACH OR ALLEGED BREACH OF SECURITY OF THE CLIENT PORTAL.
Logon Accounts and Their Security
The Firm will set up a single logon account for the Client. It is the Client’s responsibility to set up additional accounts for users that work in their organization and third parties. KBST&M strongly recommends that the Client establishes a policy that logon information should not be shared among its employees.
Termination of Logon Account
The Client is responsible for the termination of an individual logon account.
Term and Termination
This Agreement and the services contemplated by it may be terminated by either KBST&M or the Client with or without cause and with or without notice at any time.

Hacking, password mining, or any other means to gain unauthorized access to the portal, portal accounts, computer or network is prohibited. Posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law is also prohibited. Firm will fully cooperate with any law enforcement, authorities, or court requesting or directing Firm to disclose the identity of any one posting any such information and materials.
