This is our Site, and we and Schwab operate the Services included in the Site, either alone or in conjunction with affiliates, agents and partners. This OSA applies to the Site and electronic content, services and tools. This includes any features or content we and/or Schwab may add in the future. The above are referred to as "Services." This OSA applies to all Services regardless of the means by which you access such Services. Services may be offered on your Advisor’s Site. In addition, Services may be available through other computer, telephonic, e-mail or wireless services or systems, including Schwab's proprietary software and services such as Schwab Mobile Deposit™, and any other computer, telephonic or wireless service or information system Schwab makes available to you.
You also may be asked to follow additional rules, guidelines or other conditions that govern the use of a particular Service ("Rules and Guidelines") at the time you register for or use that Service. The OSA incorporates by reference the Rules and Guidelines of any Service for which you register.
We and/or Schwab may revise the OSA at any time, and you agree to be bound by future revisions. It is your responsibility to visit the link on the Site's Legal & Account Forms page periodically to review the most current terms and conditions. If you have an account with Schwab, your customer relationship with Schwab is also governed by your account agreements. If there is any conflict between (1) the OSA and (2) the agreement governing a particular Service (such as, for example, the investment advisory agreement between you and Advisor), then the agreements governing the particular Service will govern. We or Schwab may also offer other services from time to time that are governed by different or additional terms and conditions. Services are subject to any disclosures or disclaimers found within the Services.
For your protection and the protection of our other customers and Site users, please do not share your Registration information (including passwords, User Names, and screen names) with any other person for the purpose of facilitating their access and unauthorized use of Services. If you do share this information with anyone, their activities will be considered by us and Schwab to have been authorized by you. You alone are responsible for all transactions initiated, messages posted, statements made, or acts or omissions that occur within any Service through the use of your Registration information.
You acknowledge and agree that you will create or use a Schwab login ID and password to login to the Site. These login credentials will also be/are your login credentials for the Schwab Alliance website, a website of Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. You understand, however, that logging in to this Site will not automatically log you into the Schwab Alliance website. Your Advisor will not see or have access to your Schwab login credentials, and you must not share them with your Advisor or any of your Advisor's personnel.
If you believe that someone has used your Registration information to access any Service without your authorization, please call Schwab immediately at 800-435-4000.
We and Schwab, as applicable, grant you a single, non-exclusive, non-transferable and limited personal license to access and use the Services. This license is conditioned on your continued compliance with the terms and conditions in the OSA.
Unless otherwise indicated for a particular Service, and excluding Registration information, any communications or material of any kind that you e-mail, upload, post or otherwise transmit through the Services, including data, questions, comments, or suggestions (your "Communications") will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. You hereby grant a license to Advisor and Schwab, as applicable, to reproduce, disclose, transmit, publish, broadcast, or post your Communications either on the Site or elsewhere with no liability or obligation to you. Each of Advisor and Schwab is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in your Communications for any purpose including, but not limited to, developing and marketing products using such information.
We and Schwab may use third party service providers to assist in providing certain Services with or without notice to you (each, a "Third Party Service Provider"). We and Schwab may also change Third Party Service Providers or may provide a Service without the assistance of such third party. You consent and authorize us and Schwab, as applicable, to delegate the authorizations you provide to each of us and Schwab to Third Party Service Provider(s) as each of us and Schwab deem necessary or desirable to provide the applicable Service to you. You agree that the terms and conditions of the OSA, including any of the other terms, conditions, warranty disclaimers and liability disclaimers incorporated into this OSA, inure to the benefit of such Third Party Service Providers and such Third Party Service Providers are deemed to be third party beneficiaries of the OSA, including any other terms, conditions, warranty disclaimers and liability disclaimers incorporated into this OSA. You also agree that all references to "Advisor", "we", "us", "our" or "Schwab" within the OSA and any incorporated terms are also deemed to include, where applicable, our agents, such as the Third Party Service Providers.
You agree to accept all communications from us regarding use of the Services at the addresses you provide during Registration. Please promptly update any changes to your registration information by using the "Personal Information" link on the Site. We and Schwab are entitled to rely on the e-mail address and U.S. mail address that you last provided to us. You agree to waive all claims resulting from failure to receive communications because of changes in your e-mail or U.S. mail address. From time to time, Schwab would like to send you information about Schwab products and services. If you open an account, you are granting us and Schwab permission to communicate with you by e-mail. You can opt not to receive such information from Schwab in the future by following the instructions in any e-mail that Schwab sends to you.
You agree to be bound by any affirmation, assent, or agreement you transmit through the Services you access by computer or other electronic device, including internet, telephonic and wireless devices, including but not limited to any consent you give to receive communications from us and/or Schwab solely through electronic transmission. You agree that, when in the future you click on an "I agree," "I consent" or other similarly worded "button" or entry field with your mouse, keystroke or other device, your agreement or consent will be legally binding and enforceable and the legal equivalent of your handwritten signature.
The following requirements apply to your use of all Services:
- You will not use any electronic communication feature of a Service for any purpose that is unlawful, tortious, abusive, intrusive on another's privacy, harassing, libelous, defamatory, embarrassing, obscene, threatening or hateful.
- You will not upload, post, reproduce or distribute any information, software or other material protected by copyright or any other intellectual property right (as well as rights of publicity and privacy) without first obtaining the permission of the owner of such rights.
- You will not collect or store personal data about other users.
- You will not use any Service for any purpose not expressly authorized in this OSA or otherwise approved by us or Schwab in writing.
- You will not upload, post, e-mail or otherwise transmit any material that contains viruses or any other computer code, files or programs which might interrupt, limit or interfere with the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment.
Advisor and Schwab may make available to you through one or more Services a broad range of financial information that is obtained from Third Party Service Providers. This includes financial market data, quotes, news, analyst opinions, and research reports. Collectively, this is referred to as "Market Information." We and Schwab do not endorse or approve Market Information, and it is made available to you only as a service and convenience. We, Schwab and our Third Party Service Providers do not (1) guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, completeness or correct sequencing of Market Information, or (2) warrant any results from your use or reliance on Market Information. Market Information may quickly become unreliable for various reasons including, for example, changes in market conditions or economic circumstances. Neither Advisor, Schwab, nor any of the Third Party Service Providers is obligated to update any information or opinions contained in any Market Information, and Market Information may be discontinued from being offered at any time without notice. You agree that neither Advisor, Schwab, nor the Third Party Service Providers will be liable to you in any way for the termination, interruption, delay, or inaccuracy of any Market Information. You will not redistribute or facilitate the redistribution of Market Information, nor will you provide access to Market Information to anyone who is not authorized by Advisor or Schwab to receive Market Information. If you are a securities broker, dealer, banker, or investment advisor, you agree not to use Market Information for any purpose related to your business.
The Schwab Services and content (including the online interface) are distinct from the advice and Advisor Services your Advisor provides. You should not construe any Market Information, features, whitepapers, tools or other content available through any Service as legal, tax, investment, financial or other advice from us or Schwab. Nothing contained in any Service or any other content on the Site constitutes a solicitation, recommendation, endorsement, or offer by Schwab or a Third Party Service Provider to buy or sell any securities or other financial instruments.
Your access to the Site is provided exclusively through Advisor. Advisor and you are solely responsible, and Schwab is not responsible, for choosing to enroll in the Program, an investment strategy, determining the appropriateness of the chosen investment strategy for your investment needs and goals, and taking the steps to become invested in your selected investment strategy. We are independent of and not owned by, affiliated with or supervised by Schwab. Any fee you pay to us is not set or supervised by Schwab.
With the exception of applications commonly known as Web Browser software, or other applications formally promoted, endorsed or approved by Schwab in writing, you agree not to use any software, program, application or any other device to access or log on to any Service, including our or Schwab's computer systems, Site or proprietary software or to automate the process of obtaining, downloading, transferring or transmitting any Market Information or any other content to or from any Service, including our or Schwab's computer systems, the Site or proprietary software.
We, Schwab and/or its employees or directors as well as its affiliates and consultants, and Third Party Service Providers may have clients with positions in securities or companies referenced in Market Information and may, as principal or agent, buy from or sell to customers. From time to time, we, Schwab or a Third Party Service Provider may be unable to provide Market Information with respect to certain companies with which Schwab or the Third Party Service Provider or their affiliates have certain business relationships.
Electronic (including wired and wireless) communications through the Services may not be encrypted. You acknowledge that there is a risk that data, including e-mail, electronic and wireless communications and personal data, may be accessed by unauthorized third parties when communicated between you and us or between you and Schwab.
We, as well as Schwab and its affiliates and agents are entitled, but not obligated, to review or retain your Communications. We, Schwab and its affiliates and agents, as well as Third Party Service Providers may monitor your Communications to evaluate the quality of service you receive, your compliance with the OSA, the security of the Services, or for other reasons. You agree that these monitoring activities will not entitle you to any cause of action or other right with respect to the manner in which we, Schwab, or the Third Party Service Providers monitor your Communications and enforce or fail to enforce the Rules and Guidelines of any Service and the terms of the OSA. In no event will we, Schwab or any Third Party Service Providers be liable for any costs, damages, expenses or any other liabilities incurred by you as a result of any monitoring activities.
The Site may provide a link to another site of Advisor on the Internet for your convenience. Any such site is maintained by Advisor, and Schwab has no involvement with such site and does not endorse or sponsor such web sites. Accordingly Schwab expressly disclaims any responsibility for the content, the accuracy of the information, and the availability of and/or quality of products or services provided by or advertised on any such site.
We and/or Schwab may make available links from the Site to other, third party sites or electronic services providers which neither we nor Schwab are affiliated. Neither we nor Schwab control these other sites or services, and neither we nor Schwab make any representation or endorsement whatsoever concerning those sites or services. The fact that a link has been provided to a site is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners, or its providers. There are risks in using any information, software, service or product found on the Internet, and we and Schwab caution you to make sure you understand these risks before retrieving, using, relying upon, or purchasing anything via the Internet. You agree that under no circumstances will you hold us or Schwab liable for any loss or damage caused by use of or reliance on any content, goods or services available on other sites..
ALTHOUGH ADVISOR AND SCHWAB TRY TO PROVIDE ACCURATE AND TIMELY INFORMATION THROUGH THE SERVICES AND THE SITE, THERE MAY BE INADVERTENT TECHNICAL OR FACTUAL INACCURACIES AND TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS. SCHWAB AND YOUR ADVISOR RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE CHANGES AND CORRECTIONS AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT NOTICE. THE SITE, SERVICES, AND INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICES IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE." ADVISOR AND SCHWAB DO NOT WARRANT THE ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR TIMELINESS OF THE INFORMATION, TEXT, GRAPHICS, LINKS OR OTHER ITEMS CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES. ADVISOR AND SCHWAB PROVIDE NO GUARANTEE AGAINST THE POSSIBILITY OF DELETION, MIS-DELIVERY OR FAILURE TO STORE COMMUNICATIONS, PERSONALIZED SETTINGS, OR OTHER DATA. ADVISOR AND SCHWAB EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY FOR ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN THE SITE AND SERVICES, OR THE MISUSE OR MISINTERPRETATION OF, ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES. ADVISOR AND SCHWAB MAY CHANGE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES AT ANY TIME AND MAKE NO COMMITMENT TO UPDATE THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES. YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE USE OF THE SERVICES, SITE, AND INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN.
FURTHER, ADVISOR AND SCHWAB MAKE NO WARRANTIES REGARDING THE SERVICES OR SITE. ADVISOR AND ITS AFFILIATES AND AGENTS AND SCHWAB AND ITS AFFILIATES AND AGENTS (INCLUDING THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
ANY MATERIAL DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES IS DONE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER OR OTHER ELECTRONIC SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF ANY SUCH MATERIAL. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM ADVISOR AND SCHWAB OR THROUGH OR FROM THE SERVICES, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD ADVISOR AND ITS AFFILATES, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES AND LICSENSORS AND SCHWAB AND ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, AND LICENSORS (INCLUDING THE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS) AND HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIM, DEMAND, LOSS, COSTS OR EXPENSE, INCLUDING ATTORNEYS' FEES, MADE BY ANY PERSON ARISING OUT OF YOUR VIOLATION OF THIS OSA, STATE OR FEDERAL SECURITIES LAWS OR REGULATIONS, OR ANY OTHER PERSON'S RIGHTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO INFRINGEMENT OF ANY COPYRIGHT OR VIOLATION OF ANY PROPRIETARY OR PRIVACY RIGHT.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO A NEGLIGENT ACT, WILL ADVISOR OR ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES OR LICENSORS OR SCHWAB OR ITS AFFILIATES, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, OR LICENSORS (INCLUDING THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS) AND BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND THAT RESULT FROM THE USE OF, OR THE INABILITY TO USE, ANY SERVICE OR SITE, EVEN IF ANY SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN NO EVENT WILL ADVISOR, SCHWAB OR THEIR THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY TORT, CONTRACT OR ANY OTHER LIABILITY ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF A SERVICE OR SITE, OR RELIANCE ON ANY INFORMATION OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY ADVISOR OR SCHWAB. ADVISOR, SCHWAB AND THEIR THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU AND/OR ANY THIRD PARTY, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF ADVISOR, SCHWAB OR THEIR THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES RESULTING FROM: (i) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR SITE; (ii) THE TIMELINESS, DELETION, MISDELIVERY, OR FAILURE TO STORE ANY USER DATA, COMMUNICATIONS OR PERSONALIZATION SETTINGS; (iii) THE COST OF GETTING SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES RESULTING FROM ANY PRODUCTS, DATA, INFORMATION OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO, THROUGH OR FROM THE SERVICES; (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (v) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANYONE ON THE SERVICES OR SITE; (vi) THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, UNAUTHORIZED USE, PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF ANY THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF THE THIRD PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED PREVIOUSLY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES; OR (vii) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE SERVICES. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT IN ANY WAY HOLD ADVISOR OR SCHWAB RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SELECTION OR RETENTION OF, OR THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF, THIRD PARTIES (INCLUDING THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS) IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES OR SITE.
Because some states prohibit the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states the limitation of liability only with respect to consequential or incidental damages may not apply to you, and the respective liability of Advisor, Schwab and their Third Party Service Providers, employees, distributors and agents is limited to the greatest extent allowable under applicable law in those states.
In the event that a court or arbitration panel, as the case may be, should hold that the limitations of liabilities or remedies available as set forth in this OSA, or any portions thereof, are unenforceable for any reason, or that any of your remedies under this OSA fail, then you expressly agree that under no circumstances will the total, aggregate liability of Advisor, Schwab and their Third Party Service Providers, employees, distributors, agents or affiliates, to you or any party claiming by or through you for any cause whatsoever, exceed $100 (U.S.), regardless of the form of action and whether in contract, statute, tort or otherwise.
All references to "Schwab" in this section shall include Schwab's affiliates and business units, and all references to "Advisor" in this section shall include Advisor's affiliates and business units.

You are prohibited from using or authorizing the use of these images unless specifically permitted under the OSA. Any unauthorized use of the images may violate copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, or other regulations and statutes.

Upon such violation, you agree to terminate access to the Services.
The OSA is governed by the law of the state of California, without regard to conflicts of law principles thereof. This is the case regardless of whether you reside or transact business with Schwab or your Advisor in California or elsewhere. Unless a dispute would be governed by an applicable arbitration clause, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the City and County of San Francisco, California. If any part of the OSA is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
