2.      PROVIDER SERVICES.

2.1    General. In connection with your use of the Services and as part of the functionality of the Services, you may have access to certain online services or information that may be made available by your provider(s) (“Provider Services”), including online banking, online payment, online investment account download, online bill pay, online trading, and other account information available from your provider(s). The Services are designed to allow you to access Provider Services (if and to the extent provided by your provider(s)) to set up banking and other information, schedule the Services to access your account(s), download transactions into the Services and otherwise aggregate information from your account(s) with your provider(s). You acknowledge and agree that we have no control over the provision of Provider Services or provision of access to the Provider Services by your provider(s), do not guarantee that you will be able to use the Services with the Provider Services, and will have no liability whatsoever for any actions or inactions on the part of the provider(s) resulting in your inability to use the Services to access your accounts, obtain data, download transactions, or otherwise use or access the Provider Services.

2.2    Collection of Provider Account Information. You acknowledge that in accessing your data and information through the Services, your provider account access number(s), password(s), security question(s) and answer(s), account number(s), login information, and any other security or access information, and the actual data in your account(s) with such provider(s) such as bank and other account balances, credit card charges, debits and deposits (collectively, “Provider Account Data”), may be collected and stored in the Services. You authorize us and our third party vendors, in conjunction with the operation and hosting of the Services, to use certain Provider Account Data to (a) collect your Provider Account Data, (b) reformat and manipulate such Provider Account Data, (c) create and provide hypertext links to your provider(s), (d) access the providers’ websites using your Provider Account Data, (e) update and maintain your account information, (f) address errors or service interruptions, (g) enhance the type of data and services we can provide to you in the future, and (h) take such other actions as are reasonably necessary to perform the actions described in (a) through (g) above. You hereby represent that you are the legal owner of your Provider Account Data and that you have the authority to appoint, and hereby expressly do appoint, us or our third party vendors as your agent with a limited power of attorney, and appoint us or our third party vendors as your attorney-in-fact and agent, to access third party sites and/or retrieve and use your Provider Account Data through whatever lawful means with the full power and authority to do and perform each thing necessary in connection with such activities, as you could do in person, including, without limitation, accepting any new and/or updated terms and conditions from your provider on your behalf, in providing Services to you. You also expressly authorize Provider to share and disclose your Provider Account Data to us on your behalf to facilitate your use of your Provider Account Data for products and services agreed to by you. You further acknowledge that we do not, nor does our third party vendor review your Provider Account Data and agree that we are not responsible for its completeness or accuracy. Any transactions or informational activities performed at any provider’s website are not made through the Services and we assume no responsibility for such transactions or activities. You are solely responsible for any charges associated with your provider(s).  The permissions, uses and access rights granted to our third party vendors hereunder shall continue until such parties are notified by us or you that the Services have been terminated.

 

2.3    Information from Providers’ Websites. You acknowledge and agree that (a) some providers may not allow the Services to access the Provider Services, (b) providers may make changes to their websites, with or without notice to us, that may prevent or delay aggregation of information from such websites, and (c) the Services may “refresh” the Provider Account Data by collecting the Provider Account Data nightly, so your most recent transactions may not be reflected in any account balances or other account information presented to you in the Services. If you see a discrepancy in the Provider Account Data, and in any case before making any transactions or decisions based on such account information presented in the Services, you should check the last refresh date for the account and confirm Provider Account Data is correct by following the link back to the applicable provider or otherwise confirm that Provider Account Data is up to date and accurate.

We reserve the right to make any such changes effective immediately to maintain the security of the system or Licensee Access Information or to comply with any laws or regulations, and to provide you with electronic or written notice within thirty (30) days after such change. You may reject changes by discontinuing use of the Services to which such changes relate. Your continued use of the Services will constitute your acceptance of and agreement with such changes.  Maintenance upon the Services may be performed from time-to-time resulting in interrupted service, delays or errors in the Services. Attempts to provide prior notice of scheduled maintenance will be made, but provider cannot guarantee that such notice will be provided.
