Systems disclaimer

Qtrade Guided Portfolios® endeavours to offer customers an online investment service that is easy to use, reliable, secure and capable of meeting its customers' investment needs. From time to time, however, interruptions, errors or other deficiencies in service may occur. This may be due to a variety of factors, many of which are outside our control, including interruptions in the accessibility of the Internet and a system outage in facilities of a third-party service provider (including stock exchanges, Data providers, and middleware and back-office service providers). Each of these factors can contribute to delays or errors in service or system outages.

  • Systems are not guaranteed:  Qtrade Guided Portfolios®, any of its affiliates nor any third-party owners, licensors or suppliers of equipment, software, systems, services or facilities used or made available in connection with a service offered by Qtrade Guided Portfolios® (the "Systems") is liable for or makes any representation or warranty, whether express or implied, concerning the Systems or the use thereof, including, without limitation, that the Systems will meet your needs or that the Systems will be available for use at any particular time or for any particular purpose or will operate error free. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, all express or implied, direct or indirect, representations, warranties and conditions in respect of the Systems arising or implied by statute, common law, custom, usage of trade, course of performance, course of dealing or otherwise, including, but not limited to, any warranties on conditions of merchantable quality and fitness for a particular purpose are expressly excluded; and
  • Limit on liability:  The user of the Systems agrees that Qtrade Guided Portfolios® will not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from use of the Systems, including but not limited to loss or damage resulting from failure of electronic or mechanical equipment or communications lines, the Internet, telephone or other inter-connect problems, power failure, or third-party system failure.
