The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference (collectively, “Terms of Use”), govern your access to and use of any content, tools, functionality, applications (including mobile applications), and services offered on or through The Fund Marketer website (the “Website”). In these Terms of Use we will refer to the content, tools, functionality, applications, services, and the Website collectively as the “Services.”

Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Services. By using the Services, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Use. You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with FiLists. If you do not want to or are unable to agree to these Terms of Use, you must not access or use the Services, including the Website.

Changes to the Terms of Use

We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set out in Governing Law and Jurisdiction will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice before the date the change is posted on the Website.

Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
