These Qualia Notary Journal & Recording Policies and Procedures (these “Policies and Procedures”) are governed by, and are hereby incorporated into and are a supplemental part of, the Qualia Notary Terms of Service (as Qualia may amend from time to time, the “Notary Terms of Service”). By using the Notary Solution you reaffirm that you expressly agree to the terms of the Notary Terms of Service. Any capitalized terms used but not defined in these Policies and Procedures shall have the meanings given to them in the Notary Terms of Service. To the extent of any conflict between these Policies and Procedures and the Notary Terms of Service, these Policies and Procedures shall control.

From time to time, Qualia may modify these Policies and Procedures, effective upon notice to you. Your continued access to or use of the Notary Solution constitutes your acceptance of any such revisions. No other amendment, modification or supplement of any provision of these Policies and Procedures will be valid or effective unless made in writing and signed by both Parties.
