DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES; Limitation of Liability
The Website is provided to you on an "as is" and "as available" basis. This means that we do not represent or warrant to you that:
Solicitation or Offering; No Advice
Except as otherwise expressly noted, the Content and the Website do not constitute an offer to buy or sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy or sell investments, loans, securities, partnership interests, commodities or any other financial instruments; the Content and the Website also do not constitute, and may not be used for or in connection with, an offer or solicitation by anyone in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer or solicitation is not authorized or permitted, or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such offer or solicitation.
Bond Street makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, regarding the advisability of investing in securities, funds, partnership interests or other investments or funding or purchasing loans. The past performance of any investment, loan, security, partnership interest, commodity or financial instrument is not a guide to future performance.
WITHOUT LIMITING ANYTHING IN THE TERMS OF SERVICE, BOND STREET MAKES NO WARRANTIES AND BEARS NO LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY FUND, ANY INVESTMENTS, SECURITIES, PARTNERSHIP INTERESTS, LOANS OR THE PERFORMANCE THEREOF.
The Content and the views expressed in the Consent do not necessarily reflect the views of Bond Street as a whole, its directors, officers, employees, shareholders or any part or member thereof or of any third party. No Content or information on the Website constitutes, or should be construed as, investment, tax, legal, financial or any other advice.
Certain statements in the Website and the Content may constitute “forward-looking” statements that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual returns of funds, investments, securities or loans to be materially different from any future returns or values expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements typically include words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “plan,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend” and other similar terminology. These statements reflect current expectations regarding future events and speak only as of the date of being posted to the Website. Forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be read as guarantees of future performance or returns, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such returns will be achieved. Given these uncertainties and risks, users of the Website, including any person who may or has invested in any offering made by or on behalf of Bond Street or its subsidiaries or affiliates, are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.
A variety of factors could cause the actual results and developments of any fund, investment, security or loan to differ significantly from the results and developments forecasted and implied. Although forward-looking statements contained in the Website, if any, are based upon what Bond Street and its advisors believe are reasonable assumptions, Bond Street cannot assure you that actual results, returns or events will be consistent with these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are made as of the date of being posted to the Website, and Bond Street and its subsidiaries and affiliates assume no obligation, and expressly disclaim any obligation, to update or revise forward-looking statements contained in or incorporated by reference into the Website or the Content or any information supplemental thereto to reflect new information, future events or circumstances or otherwise.
