Intellectual Property Rights Notice

The material and services found on our website are the intellectual property of us and other entities. We possess exclusive ownership of the website and all its contents, inclusive of all U.S. and international copyright, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and other intellectual property rights related to it (collectively known as the “Website Content”). Unless specifically stated in this Agreement, you are prohibited from downloading or saving a copy of the website or any part of it for any reason. However, for personal records or non-commercial use, you can print individual screens from the Website Content, given that our trademarks, logos, or other symbols that appear on these screens remain unaltered and not removed. Except as expressly allowed in this Agreement, any modification, copying, publishing, display, transmission, adaptation, or exploitation of any part of the Website Content requires prior written approval from us and any other entities holding relevant intellectual property rights. Any unauthorized attempt to modify the Website Content, bypass our security measures, or use our website for purposes other than its intended use is strictly forbidden.


All content and services related to our services are provided on an “as-is” and “as available” basis. We make no warranties or representations, explicit or implied, about the operation of our services, or about the information, content, materials, or services connected to it, including any financial product you may select. You explicitly agree that your use of our services is at your own risk.

We make no guarantees, and expressly reject, any representations, warranties or guarantees, explicit or implied, about the accuracy, correctness, or completeness of the content or the safety, reliability, title, timeliness, completeness, merchantability, conformity or fitness for a particular purpose of the content or services and products associated with our services. You are solely responsible for independently evaluating the accuracy, correctness or completeness of the content and associated services and products and any loan you accept.

Liability Limitation

We, along with our subsidiaries, partners, agents, affiliates, licensors, successors, assigns, and their respective officers, directors, employees, and shareholders, shall not be held liable for any indirect, direct, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages, or any other damages resulting from the availability, use, reliance on, or inability to use the website or Website Content, regardless of the advice of potential damages. This remains true regardless of the nature of action, be it contract, tort, or otherwise. Any cause of action related to our service must begin within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues, or it is permanently barred.

In certain jurisdictions, some warranties cannot be excluded or limitations of liability for incidental or consequential damages are not allowed. In such cases, our liability will be restricted to the greatest extent permitted by law.

Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver

This arbitration provision limits your ability and ours to litigate claims in court, and both parties agree to forgo their respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You consent to not file any lawsuit against us in any state or federal court.

By accessing and/or using any of our services, you consent to the terms and conditions of this arbitration agreement. If you disagree with these terms, do not use our services or submit any contact information.

This agreement mandates arbitration for all disputes. You agree that disagreements between you and us will be addressed through binding, individual arbitration, and you renounce your right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration.

All disagreements between you and us will be addressed through binding, individual arbitration and not in court or by jury trial. If a disagreement is arbitrated, you give up your right to participate as a class representative or class member in any class claim against us, including any right to class arbitration or consolidation of individual arbitrations.

Both parties agree to attempt to resolve any disagreements informally for 60 days before resorting to binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), rather than suing in court before a judge or jury. A neutral arbitrator will make the final decision with a limited right of appeal under the FAA. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and other proceedings where someone represents a class are not permitted. Nor are individual proceedings allowed to be combined without the consent of all parties.

You consent to the Arbitrator having exclusive jurisdiction over any disagreement with us. The Federal Arbitration Act facilitates the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate.

If any part of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, that specific provision will be void, but the rest of this Arbitration Agreement will remain in effect. No waiver of any provision of this Arbitration Agreement will be valid unless documented in writing and signed by the party waiving such right or requirement. This Arbitration Agreement will remain valid even after the termination of your relationship with us.


You agree to protect and hold us, our subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, shareholders, officers, contractors, vendors, employees, and service providers harmless from any claim or demand, including attorneys’ fees, resulting from your use of this site/service, your violation of this Agreement, or your infringement of any intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity. We and our service providers take no responsibility for such content or actions. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you.


If you breach any part of this Agreement or the provisions in the Privacy Policy, you may no longer use this site/service. We may, at our discretion, terminate, change, or suspend this site/service or any part of it at any time, for any reason, without notifying you and without any liability to you or any other person. You consent that all terminations for cause shall be at our sole discretion and we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination.

Entire Agreement

This Agreement constitutes the entire terms of use agreement between you and us, and governs your use of this site/service, superseding any prior agreements.
