Account Information from Third Party Sites

In order to use and/or access certain services, you may be required to retrieve your own information maintained online by third party financial institutions with which you have customer relationships, maintain accounts or engage in financial transactions (“Account Information”).

We are not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third-party sites, including the sites of other advisers that may be mentioned. We cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties, which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions.

We may use and store the content. By submitting this content to us, you represent that you are entitled to submit it to us for use for this purpose, without any obligation by us to pay any fees or other limitations.

You grant Uplift Investing a limited power of attorney, and appoint Uplift Investing as your attorney-in-fact and agent, to access third party sites and retrieve and use your information with the full power and authority to do and perform each thing necessary as you could do in person, but solely in connection with providing the Account Information to you as part of the Services.YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WHEN WE ARE ACCESSING AND RETRIEVING ACCOUNT INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTY SITES, WE ARE ACTING AS YOUR AGENT, AND NOT AS THE AGENT OF OR ON BEHALF OF THE THIRD PARTY.

We may provide automatic alerts and voluntary account-related alerts from time to time. Automatic alerts may be sent to you following certain events of interest, such as changes made online to your Uplift Investing or Partner Site account (e.g., a change in your password) or events or movements in your portfolio.

Voluntary account alerts may be turned on by default as part of the Services. They may then be customized, deactivated or reactivated by you. We may add new alerts from time to time, or cease to provide certain alerts at any time in our sole discretion. Electronic alerts for a given account will be sent to the email address you have provided as your primary email address for that account. If your email address or your mobile device’s email address changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Changes to your email address or mobile number will apply to all of your alerts. Because alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your password. However, alerts may include your User ID and some information about your accounts. Anyone with access to your email will be able to view the content of these alerts. At any time you may disable future voluntary alerts.

You understand and agree that any alerts provided to you through the Services may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors.

However, except as otherwise provided herein, we neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the content of any alert.
