NO INVESTMENT ADVICE OR RECOMMENDATIONS; NO OFFER OR SOLICITATION
Any services or Materials (including Market Information) provided by Paine Schwartz Partners through this Site are for informational purposes only. Although the Market Information may provide information relating to investment approaches and opportunities to buy or sell securities, you should not construe any Market Information or other content available through this Site as legal, tax, investment, financial or other advice. You alone will bear the sole responsibility of evaluating the merits and risks associated with the use of any services or Material provided by Paine Schwartz Partners through this Site.
Nothing contained in any Materials on this Site constitutes a solicitation, recommendation, endorsement, or offer by Paine Schwartz Partners or a third party provider to buy or sell any securities or other financial instruments. An offer or solicitation will be made only through a final private placement memorandum, subscription agreement and other related documents with respect to a particular investment opportunity and will be subject to the terms and conditions contained in such documents, including the qualifications necessary to become an investor.
Any performance data on this Site are an indication of past performance. Past performance is not indicative of future results; and no representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided.
Visitors should be aware that when they are on this Site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond Paine Schwartz Partners’ control. There are links to other sites from Paine Schwartz Partners pages that take them outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to visitors, collect data, or solicit personal information. Paine Schwartz Partners makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content of those sites. The fact the Paine Schwartz Partners has provided a link to a site is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners or its providers. There are risks in using any information, software, or products found on the Internet, and Paine Schwartz Partners cautions you to make sure you understand these risks before retrieving, using, relying upon, or purchasing anything via the Internet. You agree that under no circumstances will you hold Paine Schwartz Partners liable for any loss or damage caused by use of or reliance on any content, goods or services available on other sites.
Visitors should keep in mind that whenever they give out personal information online — for example, via message boards or chat — that information can be collected and used by people visitors do not know. Paine Schwartz Partners cannot guarantee the security of any information visitors disclose online, and visitors do so at their own risk. Paine Schwartz Partners bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information visitors may disclose on any public Forum on this Web site.
Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for the visitor by saving the visitor’s preferences while the visitor is at Paine Schwartz Partners’ sites. Paine Schwartz Partners never saves passwords or credit card information in cookies.
By showing how and when visitors use a site, cookies help Paine Schwartz Partners see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the Site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. Paine Schwartz Partners uses the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to Site visitors’ needs. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies.

USE OF IP ADDRESSES
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers — the computers that “serve up” Web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
Paine Schwartz Partners may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our Site. When visitors request pages from Paine Schwartz Partners sites, our servers log the visitors’ IP addresses. Paine Schwartz Partners does not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor’s session will be logged, but the visitor will remain anonymous to us. Paine Schwartz Partners can and will use IP addresses to identify a visitor when Paine Schwartz Partners feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, Site, customers, or others. For instance, Paine Schwartz Partners may disclose visitor information in special cases when Paine Schwartz Partners has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Paine Schwartz Partners’ rights or property, the Site, other Site visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Paine Schwartz Partners also may disclose visitor information when Paine Schwartz Partners believes that the law requires it. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Paine Schwartz Partners strives to protect visitors’ personal information, Paine Schwartz Partners cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information visitors transmit to Paine Schwartz Partners or from Paine Schwartz Partners’ online products or services, and visitors do so at their own risk.
