officers, directors and affiliates, are neither responsible nor
liable in any way for correctness of search results.

agencies accepting money on behalf of the governments, can be
refunded under any circumstances. If an error is made on the part
of Documental, we will make all reasonable efforts to cure the
problem, and to amend any necessary documentation. Alternatively,
we will refund the fees paid to Documental. The choice between
these two remedies, as to which one is most appropriate for the
situation, will be made at the sole discretion of Documental.

or use of that corporate name. In addition, you may not presume
that your corporation has been formed until AFTER you have received
original articles of incorporation, or a certificate of incorporation.
