Users will have no right to compensation or other remedy for being unable to access the Website.

Restricted Access

The Website is operated and controlled by us in the United States. Access to the Website from countries or territories where such access is illegal is prohibited. Brookfield makes no representations that the transactions, financial or investment products, securities, and other services ("Products or Services") discussed on or accessible through the Website are available or appropriate for sale or use in all jurisdictions or by all Users. Those who access the Website do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, rules and regulations.

Website Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability

Subject to any applicable law that cannot be excluded, the Website and Content are provided “as is” and “as available” without any representation, warranty or condition. No reliance should be placed on any information on the Website or the Content. Users agree to bear all risks associated with their use of the Website and Content, including any reliance on the availability, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, usefulness or appropriateness of the Website or Content. You agree that Brookfield is not liable for any action you take, omission, or decision you make in reliance on the Website or the Content, subject to applicable law.

The Content and the Website are for informational purposes only and are not investment, professional, legal or other advice nor are they to be relied upon in making an investment or other decision. The Website and Content is not an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy and do not constitute an invitation or inducement of any sort to any person.

Certain information contained on the Website and in the Content may constitute “forward-looking statements” as defined in applicable securities laws. Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, and include statements regarding Brookfield’s competitive strengths, goals, expansion, growth, future success, operations, business, financial condition, expected financial results, performance, prospects, opportunities, priorities, targets, goals, ongoing objectives, strategies, and outlook. Words such as “anticipate”, “estimate”, “expect”, “project”, “intend”, “plan” and “believe” are intended to identify forward-looking statements. No reliance should be placed on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance, or achievements of Brookfield to differ materially. Except as required by law, Brookfield undertakes no obligation to update or revise statements or information on the Website or in Content.

Any transactions described on the Website or in any Content as having been engaged in by Brookfield are included as representative transactions for illustrative purposes only. Past performance is not indicative of future results. No assurance or representation is made, that comparable results or any target returns disclosed on the Website or in Content will be achieved.

You agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall you seek to hold Brookfield, its affiliates and/or their respective officers, directors, managers, partners, members, shareholders, employees and agents (“Affiliates”), liable and in no event shall Brookfield or its Affiliates be liable to any party, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, for damages (including direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive, exemplary and aggravated damages and damages for loss of use, profits or revenue) or any other remedy relating to the access, use, inability to use, availability of the Website or the Content, irrespective of whether Brookfield has been advised of the possibility of such damages and/or losses.

The liability of Brookfield and/or its Affiliates for breach of any condition, guarantee or warranty implied by statute that cannot be excluded, is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law, at Brookfield’s option, to the re-supply of goods or services, or the payment of the costs of having goods or services re-supplied.

Notice to California Residents

Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, you may contact the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs in writing at 1625 N. Market Blvd., Suite S-202, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210 in order to resolve a complaint regarding the service or to receive further information regarding use of the service.

Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration

Subject to applicable law, in the interest of resolving disputes between you and Brookfield, you agree that Brookfield may, at its sole discretion, require that a dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Use or your use of the Website or Content shall be resolved through binding arbitration or small claims court, at Brookfield’s option, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under these Terms of Use will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that individual party’s claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other Users.

Governing Law

Subject to the Disputes Resolution by Binding Arbitration section above, these Terms of Use and the rights and obligations of any recipient or viewer of the Website or the Content (and any person that they represent) arising out of or in connection with the Website or the Content, whether contractual, non-contractual, pre-contractual or otherwise, are governed by the laws of the State of New York and any disputes arising out of or in connection with the foregoing shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts located in New York City. You agree to waive trial by jury in any such action.

No waiver by Brookfield or any of its Affiliates of any right under or term or provision of these Terms of Use will be deemed a waiver of any other right, term or provision of these Terms of Use. If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

You should be aware that any rules and/or regulations applicable to the provision of financial services (and the resultant investor protection benefits that may be available), may not be applicable to interfacing conducted through the internet and its various applications, of which this material forms part.
