1. SingaporeLawDocs is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice
SingaporeLawDocs is not a law firm, and our employees are not acting as your lawyer. SingaporeLawDocs does not practice law and does not give Legal Advice. This Website provides a platform for general self-help information for your private use and you agree that this does not constitute Legal Advice. If you receive any communication from SingaporeLawDocs and its agents, employees or any associated entity which constitutes Legal Advice, you agree to immediately delete and disregard it because this is NOT a communication authorized by SingaporeLawDocs.
You agree that all decisions you make on legal matters are your own responsibility and you agree to consult a licensed lawyer or attorney if you require legal advice for a specific problem.

SingaporeLawDocs aims to update the Website regularly and make sure its legal documents are accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the law changes rapidly, SingaporeLawDocs cannot guarantee that all its information on the Website is completely current.

14. Dispute resolution
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at 9180 3958. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration in Singapore in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) for the time being in force. Any arbitration under these Terms and Conditions will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
You agree that before the commencement of arbitration, you will attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute through mediation at the Singapore International Mediation Centre (“SIMC”), in accordance with the SIAC-SIMC Arb-Med-Arb Protocol for the time being in force. Any settlement reached in the course of the mediation shall be referred to the arbitral tribunal appointed by SIAC and may be made a consent award on agreed terms.
The cost of the binding arbitration proceedings and any proceedings in court to confirm or to vacate any arbitration award, including lawyer’s fees and costs, will be borne by the unsuccessful party and will be determined and awarded by the arbitrator.
