Please read these Terms fully and carefully before using the Services, because these Terms form a legally binding contract between you and Kinnect for your use of the Services. We provide you with access to and use of the Services subject to your compliance with these Terms. By using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are a financial advisor, or other professional agent, accessing the Services on behalf of your customer or another entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to agree to these Terms on their behalf.
In other words: This agreement governs your use of Kinnect and may affect your legal rights.
By registering for the Services, you represent and warrant that you are at least 13 years of age. If you are under 13, you may not, under any circumstances or for any reason, use the Services. We reserve the right to change our eligibility criteria at any time, and to refuse to offer the Services to anyone for any reason or no reason at all. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations (collectively, “Laws”), and your right to use the Services is revoked wherever these Terms, your use of the Services, or any part of the Services conflicts with any Laws.
In other words: You can’t use the Services if you are under 13 or if these Terms or the Services violate local law.
While certain aspects of the Services are public, others require you to sign up for the Services by registering for an account (an “Account”). You are solely responsible for keeping the email address associated with your Account accurate and up to date, since this is the only way we can contact you about your Account and your use of the Services. You promise not to (i) intentionally impersonate another person by using their name and/or email address or (ii) use an email address for which you don’t have the proper authorization. You must keep your password secure and should never publish, distribute or post your Account login information, because you are responsible for any activity that occurs on your Account. You set permissions for sharing or disclosing your Secure Information to another person or organization (each, a “Read Or Write Access Admin”). You select to use the Services by yourself, or, if you are using Kinnect as Household with another user with whom you share ownership of the Secure Information of your Kinnect Forms (each, a “Co-Administrator”). You are prohibited from using another person’s account or registration information for the Services without their permission. You promise to immediately let us know if there is any unauthorized use of your Account, security breach, or change in your eligibility to use the Services. You can delete your Account at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In other words: If you sign up for an Account, you are responsible for any Account activity and for keeping your Account email address up to date so that we can reach you. Be mindful about how you share and protect your Account, and let us know immediately if you think there are any issues by contacting us through our help center at help.kinnect.us.
If you are working with (a) a financial advisor or (b) an employer, benefits administrator, insurance company or any third party institution (this subsection (b) collectively, a “Partner Provider”) to provide you (and, if applicable, a Co-Administrator) access to the Premium Services (as defined below), your financial advisor or Partner Provider (as applicable) may be able to see certain high-level information about your use of and access to the Services, which may include the type of Kinnect Forms you signed up for, the date and time of your last login to the Services, your total number of logins to the Services, and which sections of your Kinnect Forms you completed (collectively, the “Use Information”). By accepting a financial advisor’s or Partner Provider’s invitation to sign up for the Premium Services, (an “Invitation”), you hereby do and shall grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable and transferable license to use, store, aggregate, reproduce, transmit and display Use Information, internally or to your financial advisor, or other professional agent, or Partner Provider (if applicable), solely as necessary to operate, provide and improve the Site, the Services (including without limitation the Premium Services) and our (and our successors’ and assigns’) businesses, including after termination of your Account or the Services. You also hereby do and shall grant your financial advisor, or other professional agent, or Partner Provider, as applicable, a non-exclusive, perpetual license to access your Use Information through the Services, and to use, prepare derivative works of, and display such Use Information, including after termination of your Account or the Services. To be clear, Use Information may be personally identifiable and may be tied back to you (and, if applicable, your Co-Administrator), your Account and/or your web browser.
In other words, if you receive an Kinnect Forms from a financial advisor, or other professional agent, or a Partner Provider, we may surface information on your use of the services back to that advisor or Partner Provider (as applicable), but never the contents of your Kinnect Forms or your Secure Information unless you have designated them as a Read or Write Access Admin for the particular Secure Information you have chosen to share.
In other words: Public Information is public, so don’t include any private or sensitive information in it.
In other words: We may use your Aggregate Information to promote our Services, none of which is personally identifiable.
In other words: We have an experienced team that employs better than industry standard methods to make sure that your Secure Information will be safe, though no security measure can be guaranteed to be 100% effective.

In other words: If we received valid instruction regarding a release of information, we’ll do what it says, and you won’t hold that against us.
We use industry standard (or better) administrative, physical and technical safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality of your Account and Your Information, including without limitation your Secure Information. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee absolute security, and no security measures are 100% effective and fool-proof. THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ALL CONTENT, INFORMATION, FUNCTION, AND MATERIALS, IS PROVIDED “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE” AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY ANY COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ANY WARRANTIES CONCERNING THE AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINESS, USEFULNESS, RELIABILITY OF ANY OPINION, ADVICE OR OTHER CONTENT, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.

NO ADVICE, OPINION, RESULTS, INFORMATION OR MATERIALS, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN.
In other words: While we believe we provide some of the best security safeguards for an internet based consumer product and are constantly improving, no site can promise 100% security. The Services are provided “as is.” You should evaluate any Content or information you receive through the Services or any Third Party Site on your own or with your own outside professional advice.

Kinnect CANNOT AND DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL, LEGAL, OR FINANCIAL ADVICE. Kinnect IS NOT PERMITTED TO ENGAGE IN THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE, LAW, OR FINANCIAL ADVISING.

In other words: Anything you access through the Services is for informational purposes only, and you won’t use it as personalized advice.
You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless us, our affiliates and each of our and their respective employees, contractors, directors, suppliers and representatives from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that arise from or relate to your use or misuse of, or access to, the Services, Content, or otherwise from Your Information, violation of these Terms, or infringement by you, or any third party using your Account or identity in the Services, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.

In other words: Our legal liability to you is limited. Please understand that we cannot run our business without it.
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Florida, including its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America. You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be governed by the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts of Seminole County, Florida.
In other words: FL and US laws apply to this agreement, and any dispute will take place only in Seminole County, FL.
We can modify, amend, change or replace any of the terms, conditions or provisions of these Terms, or change, suspend or discontinue the Services (including without limitation the availability of any feature, database or content) at any time by replacing these Terms on the Site and by sending you a notice through the Services via email. It is your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes, and to keep your email address current. We may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. Your continued use of the Services following notification of any changes to these Terms constitutes acceptance of those changes. If you disagree with the new terms, please stop using the Services (but, before doing so, you may want to export and delete your Secure Information and your Account from the Services). In the unlikely event that we discontinue the Services, we will notify you to allow you to export Your Information.
In other words: This agreement may change, and if you continue using the Services after such change you will be deemed to have accepted the new terms. We don’t anticipate shutting down, but in case we do, we want you to be able to get Your Information.
In other words: We tried to make this as simple as possible, but the section headings and “in other words” mini-paragraphs are not actually part of the agreement. You have to read the full Terms.
In other words: The only valid way for us to waive your compliance with any of this agreement is by written notice from us. If any part of this agreement is found to be invalid, the rest still stands.
