The Terms are in addition to any other agreements between you and FIRM, including any customer or account agreements, and any other agreements that govern your use of products, services, content, tools and information provided by FIRM or any product, service, content, tools and information provided by companies not affiliated with FIRM and that are available on or via the Website (collectively, “Content”).
FIRM reserves the right to replace, change, or modify the Terms at any time, for any reason, by posting new terms on the Website. We suggest that you review the Terms periodically for changes.
Online Access to Accounts and Password Security. Certain parts of the Website are protected by user names, passwords, Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), or other credentials and are restricted to authorized users only. You may not obtain unauthorized access to such parts of the Website, or to any other protected materials or information, through any means not intentionally made available by FIRM for your specific use. This includes, among other prohibited acts, using login credentials not assigned by FIRM to you. If you maintain an account with an FIRM fund or strategy that you access through the Website, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and credentials and for restricting access to your computer. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities occurring under your account or credentials (that are due to your conduct, inaction, or negligence). You must notify FIRM immediately if you become aware of any disclosure, loss, theft or unauthorized use of any of your credentials.
FIRM may terminate your access to the Website for any reason, without prior notice.
No investment recommendations or professional advice. The Website is not intended to provide any tax, legal, insurance or investment advice, and nothing on the Website should be construed as a solicitation or recommendation by FIRM or its affiliates to acquire or dispose of any investment or security, or to engage in any investment strategy or transaction. Decisions based on information contained on the Content are your sole responsibility of the visitor. In exchange for using the Website, you agree to indemnify and hold FIRM, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, agents, licensors and suppliers harmless against any and all claims, losses, liability, costs and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from your use of the Website, from your violation of the Terms or from any decisions that you make on the Content.

Data is Not Guaranteed. Reasonable precautions have been taken to ensure that Website Content, including account information and pricing data, are complete and accurate. However, due to the nature of information delivery technology and the necessity of using multiple data sources, FIRM is unable to assure the accuracy of the data you access through the Website. The Website content is presented only as of the date published or indicated and may be superseded by subsequent market events or other reasons.
Fund and Advisor Disclosures. Investments in an FIRM product or client account are not bank deposits and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, any other government agency or any bank.
Please carefully consider a fund’s investment objective, risks, charges and expenses before investing. For this and other information, call or write to FIRM for a free prospectus or view one online. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.
You and your financial advisor should determine whether any investment, security or strategy or any other product or service, is appropriate or suitable for you based on your personal financial situation and investment objectives. You should consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation.
Trademarks, Copyrights and other Intellectual Property. The Content owned or licensed by FIRM is protected by applicable copyrights, trademarks, service marks, and/or other intellectual property rights. Such Content is solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Accordingly, you may not copy, distribute, modify, post, frame or deep link the Website, including any text, graphics, video, audio, software code, user interface design or logos.

Modification or use of any Content for any purpose other than your private, personal use violates FIRM’s intellectual property rights.
All trademarks, service marks, trade names, and logos displayed on the Website are proprietary to FIRM and/or their respective owners.

Limitation of Liability
YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE IS TO STOP USING THE WEBSITE. YOU AGREE THAT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL FIRM BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (COLLECTIVELY, THE “EXCLUDED DAMAGES”), ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: LOSS OF REVENUE, ANTICIPATED PROFITS, BUSINESS, SAVINGS, GOODWILL OR DATA OR TRADING LOSSES. EVEN IF FIRM HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF OR COULD HAVE FORSEEN THE EXCLUDED DAMAGES. FURTHER, FIRM WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY, BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WITH THESE TERMS OR WITH APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS.
THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF: (I) ANY NEGLIGENCE OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OF FIRM OR (II) WHETHER THE LIABILITY ARISES IN NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LEGAL LIABILITY; AND WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY OR EXCLUSION OF WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THOSE STATES, FIRM’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
