BY CLICKING ON "I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THE USER AGREEMENT ", you also acknowledge that any reference or use of a service that could have been offered to you by any of the business partners of Scripta Legal Inc. which are working in the world of financial services, insurance or any other business community as well as their affiliated members or brokers, shall never engage, at no time and under no circumstances, their legal responsibility.

In order to offer the services of the Website to users in the safest way, Scripta Legal Inc. uses dedicated virtual servers, also called virtual servers, which are in fact virtual machines on which we find the entire Contents of the Website, software used by the latter and its operating system as well as the databases and personal information collected. A virtual server, it is a simulated server on a hosting server which, in turn, consists of a physical server whose function is to administer and see to the proper functioning of all the virtual servers that it hosts.
The virtual servers of the Website are hosted on a physical server, being a body hardware server, that is located in Canada and they are independent as they are not linked to all other virtual servers that can also be hosted on that same physical server through partition of the physical server into multiple virtual servers. So the virtual servers of the Website have all the features of a standard dedicated server through the use of virtualization techniques. Scripta Legal Inc. has chosen to use virtual servers because their use offers greater security on the Internet and better reliability in terms of the services that this one offers.
Although Scripta Legal Inc. uses hosting services to ensure the operation of the virtual servers of the Website from a Canadian specialized corporation, Scripta Legal Inc. has exclusively all rights required to operate and administer the virtual servers of the Website, which are hosted on a physical server of this corporation.
For the purposes hereof, the expression "the servers of the Website" will always be used despite the fact that Scripta Legal Inc. is using virtual servers in order to operate the Website.
