List Server/E-Mail Forum Policies And Agreement for Participation
In consideration of participating in the KJA ListServ, I agree to the terms and conditions outlined in this Agreement. I understand that KJA may modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement from time to time including, but not limited to, the right to impose access and usage limitations, and that such modifications shall be effective upon written notice to me.
I understand that current membership in the Kentucky Justice Association is a requirement to participate in the KJA Listserv/E-mail forums.
I will not use the Listserv to send any messages containing defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive illegal information or materials; discuss my business policies or practices with competitors in any anticompetitive context; list any copyrighted material or information without the consent of the copyright owner; discuss the fees I charge for any legal services or discuss any information that might be construed as price fixing, a boycott, an illegal restriction of free trade or any other antitrust violation; and disclose any material or information obtained via the KJA Listserv to anyone who is not authorized to receive such information.
I understand and agree that the KJA Listserv is a private forum, where all other members intend that respective e-mail postings and transmissions are private and confidential to members only, and not intended for distribution to the public at large. I further understand and agree that information contained in the KJA Listserv postings may contain attorney client privileged information for consultation between KJA members who are experts, and thus the e-mail posting contacts are work product privileged.
I will not voluntarily disclose any material or information I obtain from the KJA Listserv to anyone who is not authorized to receive such information. I understand, however, that this Agreement does not prevent me from using the material or information obtained from the ListServ in my legal practice.
I agree that I will not sell or distribute for profit any of the information, documents or materials I obtain from the KJA Listserv or from its members under any circumstances.
I agree that all electronic communications on the KJA ListServ will be used for business purposes only and in accordance with KJA’s policies and procedures. All list server(s) are subject to periodic audit and monitoring by KJA staff members and contractors for business and security purposes.
I understand that I may be held individually liable for any communications I send on the KJA Listserv, including but not limited to, defamatory, discriminatory, antitrust, anticompetitive, false, or unauthorized information. I also understand that I must comply with all state and federal copyright, trademark, and patent laws and regulations. I understand and agree that KJA does not screen e-mail content prior to posting and therefore does not approve, authorize, censor, edit or otherwise exercise any discretion over the content of postings to the list. The member posting any e-mail is therefore solely responsible for the content of the posting.
I will not use the ListServ to advocate for the defeat or election of any local, state or federal candidate for public office; promote or advertise events of local, state or federal candidates for public office; and neither promote nor disparage the events or activities of a local, state or federal political party.
I understand and agree that I may not use the KJA Listserv for any solicitation of clients except for referrals, the sale of items for personal profit, or other commercial purposes. An endorsement or referral of oneself or another member of the bar in good standing, will not be considered “solicitation” under the terms of the ListServ.
I acknowledge that KJA may remove me from the ListServ for violating this agreement and that such violation may result in termination of my membership in KJA. Any alleged violations will be reviewed by the KJA ListServ Committee. Any dispute or disagreements as to the usage of the ListServ under the terms shall be resolved at the sole discretion of the ListServ Committee.
Members are cautioned that the General KJA List Server may include the participation of both plaintiffs and defense attorneys and postings to the List Server should be made with the appropriate caution.
