NOTICE TO ELIGIBLE PARTICIPANTS
Dear Eligible Participant:
Ernst & Young LLP (“EY”) has been engaged to provide financial wellness services to you through this program. We expect that you will find EY’s services to be valuable, but we think it is also important that you understand the scope of these services. The following explains what financial wellness services can and cannot do for you, particularly as regards investment planning.
General Financial Planning Considerations
Here are points to understand regarding your personal financial planning and your participation in financial wellness services:
Privacy of Information Provided to EY
In the event EY collects nonpublic personal information about you from you or other sources authorized by you, EY will not disclose such information to third parties, except as permitted by law or as otherwise authorized by you. EY maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
All services are provided “as is,” and there are no warranties of any kind or nature, whether express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use. In addition, neither EY nor its affiliates nor any of their partners, officers, directors or employees shall be liable to you for any services performed or omitted or for any errors of judgment, or for consequential, incidental, indirect, punitive or special damages in connection with providing the services described above. Federal securities laws impose liabilities under certain circumstances on certain persons, even those who act in good faith, and therefore nothing in this notice constitutes a waiver or limitation of any rights that you may have under these laws.
