By using the information, tools, features, software and functionality including content, updates and new releases of the Sites or Services, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse the FinLocker.com website), or a “Consumer” (which means that you have registered an account with FinLocker.com in order to utilize our Services, whether directly on our Sites or otherwise). The term “you” refers to a Visitor or Consumer.

Additional Terms.

2. Account Information

You may provide to us or direct us to retrieve (to the extent maintained online) your own data, communications, personalization settings and other information maintained online by third parties with which you have customer relationships, maintain accounts or engage in financial transactions (“Account Information”). We work with one or more online service providers to access this Account Information. We make no effort to review the Account Information for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality or non-infringement. We cannot always foresee or anticipate technical service interruptions or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain Account Information or loss of Account Information. We do not assume responsibility, and are not in any way liable, for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any Account Information. For example, when displayed through the Services, Account Information is only as fresh as the time shown, which reflects when the information is obtained from such Sites.

You can refresh your Account Information through the Services, in the manner prescribed in the associated instructions.

Using the Services, you can select what portion of Account Information are provided to or accessed by Authorized Third Parties. Your Account Information in the possession of an Authorized Third Party, and their use of that information, will be governed by the privacy policies and other applicable policies of that Authorized Third Party. Typically Authorized ThirdParties are permitted to share Account Information with other third parties such as third parties who are affiliated, transacting or working with, or otherwise providing services on behalf of a Third Party Partner (“Other Third Party”). Authorized Third Parties may also share or delegate to an Other Third Party their access to Account Information.

Copyright owners and agents acknowledge that failure to comply with all of the requirements of the foregoing may result in an invalidity of the DMCA notice.

Counter-Notice. If you believe that the content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent: (a) your physical or electronic signature; (b) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (c) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and (d) your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in St. Louis County, Missouri, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

17. Miscellaneous

Independent Contractors. The parties are and shall be independent contractors and neither party by virtue of this Agreement shall have any right, power or authority to act or create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other.

Waiver/Severability. No waiver of any term, provision or condition of this Agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be, or shall constitute, a waiver of any other term, provision or condition hereof, whether or not similar, nor shall such waiver constitute a continuing waiver of any such term, provision or condition hereof. No waiver shall be binding unless executed in writing by the party making the waiver. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, then such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible and the other provisions will remain fully effective and enforceable.

Notice. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, all notices shall be in writing and shall be deemed to be delivered when sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid, or when sent by facsimile or email to either party’s last known post office, facsimile or email address, respectively. You hereby consent to notice by email. We may send you via such email address our newsletters, product updates, service-related information and other offers and information from us or our business partners, and you hereby consent to such emails. We may also contact you by email to respond to any customer service or other inquiries you submit.

Law/Forum. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri, without giving effect to its principles of conflicts of law. Any litigation arising out of this Agreement shall be brought by either party in a court of competent jurisdiction located in St. Louis County, Missouri, and each party hereby waives any defenses it may have before such courts based on a lack of personal jurisdiction or inconvenient forum. Each party hereby expressly and irrevocably waives the right to a jury trial. The prevailing party shall be awarded its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in any proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement. No action arising under this Agreement may be brought by you more than one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued.

Equitable Relief / Fees. The parties agree that breach of the provisions of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the unauthorized use of the Services, would cause irreparable harm and significant injury to us which would be both difficult to ascertain and which would not be compensable by damages alone. As such, the parties agree that we have the right to enforce the provisions of this Agreement by injunction (without necessity of posting bond), specific performance, or other equitable relief without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may have for your breach of this Agreement. If any action in law or in equity is necessary to enforce the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to reasonable fees of attorneys, accountants, and other professionals, and costs and expenses in addition to any other relief to which such prevailing party may be entitled.

Force Majeure. If the performance of any part of this Agreement by either party (other than the payment of money) is prevented, hindered, delayed or otherwise made impracticable by reason of any flood, riot, fire, judicial or governmental action, labor disputes, act of God or any other causes beyond the control of either party, that party shall be excused from such to the extent that it is prevented, hindered or delayed by such causes.

Survival. The terms and provisions of Sections 4, 7 – 9, 12 – 14, and 17 shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.

Assignment. You shall not assign or transfer this Agreement or any rights or obligations under this Agreement. Any unauthorized assignment or transfer shall be void and constitutes ground for immediate termination of this Agreement by us. This Agreement binds and inures to the benefit of us and our respective permitted successors and permitted assigns.

Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the parties with respect to the Services and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous communications, representations, statements and understandings, whether oral or written, between the parties concerning the Services. The captions and headings of this Agreement are included for ease of reference only and will be disregarded in interpreting or construing this Agreement.
