Terms and Conditions of Use
Welcome to the data aggregation and information management service (“Service”) of Prudential Customer Solutions LLC, and our affiliated companies (“Prudential”, “we,” “us,” “our”).
If you’re like most people, you have financial accounts at different organizations. This Service gives you the opportunity to collect your financial account information, including brokerage, insurance, checking and savings accounts from financial institutions other than Prudential, for use in certain financial calculators and tools, or to get a transparent, holistic picture of your financial information on one secure and convenient web page provided by Prudential.
In order to use the Service, you’ll need to read and accept the following Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement (“Agreement”). By clicking the “Accept” button, you agree to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions in the Agreement, then unfortunately, you may not use the Service.
What’s Covered by the Agreement
These terms and conditions (“Terms”) are in addition to and do not replace or change any other agreements between you and Prudential. When using the Service to access account information in connection with your third-party accounts (“Third Party Accounts”) at third-party sites (“Third-Party Sites”), you will be subject to the terms and conditions of those Third-Party Sites. You acknowledge that neither we nor our Service Provider, Envestnet | Yodlee (“Service Provider”) are responsible for third-party terms of service and neither do we nor our Service Provider control those Third-Party sites or any products and services available through them. If you have any problems with your Third-Party Accounts or Third-Party Sites, you should contact the third-party financial institutions directly.
These Terms, which cover your use of the Service, are an agreement between you and Prudential. From time to time, we may make changes to the terms of this Agreement. Such changes are effective immediately when we post them on this website (the “Site”) and your continued use of the Service, following the posting, means that you agree to the changes. We also reserve the right, at our discretion, to discontinue offering the Service.

You acknowledge and agree that we have undertaken no independent investigation to verify the valuations, accuracy or completeness of such Third-Party Account information and that any analysis, review or guidance offered by Prudential creates no duty or other responsibility for Prudential to advise you to take any action or inaction regarding your positions, individual investments, investment strategies or asset allocations at other financial institutions.
You understand and agree that you should perform your own evaluation of your personal financial situation or any guidance or recommendations offered by us, based on your investment objectives, financial resources and risk tolerance.
