Terms of Use

Welcome to Vaidha!

These are Vaidha's terms of use (stick with us here). We know that most people skim through terms of use statements because they're boring and go right over our heads, but we have done everything we can to make this easy to get through. At the beginning of every section, you'll see the biggest takeaway of the following portion. By using Vaidha, you agree to these terms and we will always tell you if we change them. These summaries are not legally binding, but they give you a short version of the terms. Summaries appear highlighted at the start of every section.

We are a legal platform where lawyers and public can make account. These are Vaidha’s terms of use and apply to all users of the Vaidha website and mobile applications. “We,” “our” or “us” refers to Vaidha. By using Vaidha you agree to these terms. You acknowledge that you have read and understood these terms. You also agree to our privacy policy. Vaidha is a platform.

If we make material changes that adversely affect your rights under these terms, then we will let you know by posting an announcement on the site or sending you an email prior to the changes coming into effect. Continuing to use Vaidha after a change to these terms means you accept the new terms.
