You must keep your Saving P’s user account secure and confidential. Do not share your password or allow others to access your Saving P’s account. You agree that you will be solely responsible for all activity that occurs under your Saving P’s user account.
Closing your account
We have the right to disable your user account at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms. If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your login information, or has accessed your user account, you must promptly notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you intentionally or negligently share your Saving P’s credentials or enable a third party to use your Saving P’s account, whether fraudulently or not, you are liable for any losses incurred in respect of an unauthorised transaction.
5. Purchasing financial products recommended by Saving P’s
When you purchase financial products or related services recommended or referred to by Saving P’s as part of the Service, while we might make a recommendation, the contract relating to that sale is between you and the service provider or vendor of that product. You will not purchase products from Saving P’s and you will have no sale agreement with Saving P’s. If you have any queries with respect to the product(s) you have purchased, please contact the service provider or vendor directly.
In most cases, you will probably be able to exercise a right to cancel the contracts for financial contracts we have recommended by withdrawing from them within certain time periods. Whether you can do so, and how you can do so, will be set out in the terms and conditions provided to you by, or your agreement with, that service provider or vendor.
Simplified: When you buy a financial product, you will be buying it from a third party, not from us. You should ask them any questions you have about the product, including what cancellation rights are available to you.

any falls in investment values;
any unforeseen events resulting in loss of profit, or other indirect or consequential loss, which are outside our control, including those caused by third parties;
any losses attributable to your own actions, or which occurred due to your failure or omission to disclose complete or accurate information, either to us or to a recommended advisor; or

Limitations to the App and the Service. The App and the Service are provided for general information and entertainment purposes only. They do not offer advice on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of information obtained from the App or the Service. Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information provided by the App and the Service, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied, that such information is accurate, complete or up to date.
Check that the App and the Service are suitable for you. The App and the Service have not been developed to meet your individual requirements. Please check that the facilities and functions of the App and the Service meet your requirements.
When we are liable for damage to your property.

However, these terms will not exclude or limit our liability where it would be unlawful for us to do so, and as such do not exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or that of our employees, agents or subcontractors or for fraud or misrepresentation.
In any case, our total liability will be limited to the higher of:
the remaining amount of any professional indemnity insurance available to us.
Simplified: We put a limit on what we’re liable for, except where we’re not allowed to by law.
12. Duty to disclose
Any financial advice we provide will be based on your personal financial circumstances and objectives. You must give us accurate and complete information and a true reflection of your current circumstances. Any wrong or incomplete information that you provide to us may lead to wrong advice or the terms of your plan being invalidated. We strongly recommend that you check the information you provide before you submit it and that you keep it regularly updated thereafter.
Simplified: We provide advice and recommendations based on the information you give us, so make sure it’s correct and kept up to date.
13. Client money
Saving P’s does not, and is not permitted to, handle client money, and we cannot accept a cheque made out to us. We do not handle cash.
14. Anti-Money Laundering
Where we are required to verify your identity in accordance with the applicable anti-money laundering requirements (i.e. those relating to the provision of financial services), parts of the Service will be withheld from you until such verification has been obtained, and none will be provided if the required verification is not forthcoming within a reasonable period. We may use and search the records of credit reference or fraud prevention agencies to check your identity. Such searches may leave a ‘soft footprint’ on your credit file, but this won’t be visible to lenders and won’t affect your credit rating.
By agreeing to these Terms you are consenting to Saving P’s validating your personal identification and address via these means.
Simplified: Because we’re providing financial services, we may be required to verify your identity to help prevent financial crime. Where we have to do such checks, you won’t be able to use parts of the Saving P’s service until we’ve been able to verify your identity. The checks we run may be visible to you on your credit report, but won’t be visible to lenders and won't affect your credit rating.
15. Conflict of interest
We will endeavour always to act in the best interests of our clients; however, circumstances can arise where we or one of our other customers may have some form of interest in business being transacted for you. To ensure we can properly identify these situations and manage them appropriately, we maintain a Conflict of Interest policy that is available to you upon request.
We will keep records related to your use of the Service in accordance with our legal and regulatory obligations, which can mean that we keep them for a period of years. Further details on our record retention policy is available upon request. You can inspect the records at any time. We treat all our clients’ records as confidential.
We may communicate with you by phone (e.g. text message) or email, and all our communications will be made in English. We prefer instructions to be given in writing, by email.
18. Governing Law
The Agreement and any dispute or claim (whether contractual or non-contractual) arising out of or in connection with it, its subject matter or formation shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of England and Wales. Any proceedings arising out of or in connection with the Agreement shall be brought only in the courts of England, and each party agrees that any such proceedings shall be conclusive and binding upon it and may be enforced in any jurisdiction.
Neither party intends that the Terms should be enforceable, by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, by any person who is not a party to these Terms.
Simplified: The law that governs your agreement with us is the law of England and Wales. Any legal proceedings relating to this agreement will be brought in the courts of England. Only you or Saving P’s can enforce anything in this agreement.
19. Your rights

20. Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
FSCS protects customers when authorised financial services firms fail. You may be entitled to compensation of up to £85,000 from the FSCS if we cannot meet our obligations to you. In addition, the investments you make on the basis of the recommendations we provide to you may be covered by the FSCS and you may be able to claim compensation from the FSCS if the provider of any such product is unable to meet its obligations to you (e.g. if it can’t repay the amount you have provided to it to invest).
Different types of claims may bring different levels of compensation. Further information about the compensation schemes available from the FSCS in respect of different types of financial products please visit the FSCS’s website at www.fscs.org.uk.
