Retain, use, or disclose the personal information outside of the direct business relationship between you and Doucet Co LPA;

Further collect or use the personal information of the consumer except as necessary to perform a business purpose.
Doucet Co LPA hereby certifies that it understands its obligations under Section 3.1 and will comply with them.
Doucet Co LPA will not respond to any request received by it from a consumer under the CCPA other than to inform the consumer that the request cannot be acted upon because it has been sent to a service provider.

The parties agree that the Contracted Services may include, without limitation, the following activities to the extent Doucet Co LPA determines such activities are necessary for it to perform the services provided under the Agreement: (a) retaining and employing another service provider as a subcontractor, where the subcontractor meets the requirements for a service provider under the CCPA, (b) internally building or improving the quality of Doucet Co LPA ’s services, except building or modifying household or consumer profiles to use in providing services to another business, or correcting or augmenting data acquired from another source, (c) detecting data security incidents, or protecting against fraudulent or illegal activity; and (d) complying with federal, state, or local laws, comply with a civil, criminal, or regulatory inquiry, investigation, subpoena, or summons by federal, state, or local authorities; cooperating with law enforcement agencies concerning conduct or activity that you, Doucet Co LPA or a third party reasonably and in good faith believes may violate federal, state, or local law; or exercising or defending legal claims.

Your remedies with respect to any breach by Doucet Co LPA of the terms of this Addendum and the overall aggregate liability of Doucet Co LPA arising out of, or in connection with the Agreement (including this Addendum) will be subject to any aggregate limitation of liability that has been agreed between the parties under the Agreement but in no event shall be more than the amount you paid to Doucet Co LPA (the “Liability Cap”) or $1,000, whichever is less. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties intend and agree that the overall aggregate liability of Doucet Co LPA and its affiliates arising out of, or in connection with the Agreement (including this Addendum) will in no event exceed the Liability Cap.

A party who intends to seek litigation must
first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The
Notice to DOUCET CO LPA may be sent by U.S. mail or professional courier
service to Doucet Co., LPA, 485 Metro Place South, Suite 300, Dublin, OH 43017

Account records to your attorney if necessary in resolving your claim.

(If either you or we sends the other an incomplete Notice, the 60-day period begins only after a complete Notice is received.) Any litigation must occur in Franklin County, Ohio, USA, which is the only jurisdiction either party may pursue an action in. Clients of the law firm with a formal written fee agreement are exempted from this provision.
