In the event Harmonic receives and processes personal data of an individual in scope of the EU GDPR, the Privacy Notices contain all information to which the individual is entitled under Articles 12-13 of the GDPR in relation to transparency, including information about what other parties are processing their personal data; and information on how the individual may exercise all his/her data subject rights under the provisions of Chapter 3 of the GDPR, including how to make a subject access request and his/her right to make a complaint to a data protection authority.
These Terms and Conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Cayman Islands.
(a) The data contained within the Software accessible through the Site comprises certain securities pricing data and information (“Data”) supplied by Interactive Data Pricing and Reference Data, Inc. (“Interactive”) to Harmonic Fund Services (“HFS”) (an affiliate of Wavelength Financial Technology Ltd) (“Wavelength”) pursuant to a Services Agreement between them (“Services Agreement”). This data and information is made available by HFS to Wavelength for inclusion within the Software.
(b) You acknowledge that the Data shall be provided to you in View Only Access for your Internal Use. “Internal Use” means use for your internal use and benefit, including preparation of hardcopy reports, but expressly excludes: (i) further dissemination of the Data to any third party; (ii) the construction of products or services that may compete with any of the services provided by Interactive in relation to the Data. In addition, Internal Use does not include use for the benefit of any of your affiliates or any joint venture to which you are a party. “View Only Access” means a visual display of the Data solely via the Software, so that you may view the Data and download insubstantial amounts of Data to Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word. Except as expressly permitted above, you are restricted from downloading, copying, transferring or otherwise removing or manipulating Data from the Software and from copying and pasting Data items into any other third party software application.
(c) Interactive and its suppliers make no warranties, express or implied, as to merchantability, fitness or any other matter in relation to the Data.
(d) interactive and its suppliers shall have no liability to you, or a third party, for errors, omission or malfunctions in the Data, other than the obligation of Interactive to endeavor, upon receipt of notice from HFS to correct a malfunction, error or omission in any Data, pursuant to the terms of the Services Agreement.
(e) You acknowledge that the Data is intended for use as an aid to institutional investors, registered brokers or professionals of similar sophistication in making informed judgments concerning securities. You accept responsibility for, and acknowledge you exercise your own independent judgment in your selection of the use or intended use of the Data, and any results obtained. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to be a waiver of any rights existing under applicable law for the protection of investors.
(f) You shall indemnify Interactive and its suppliers against and hold Interactive harmless from any and all losses, damages, liability, costs, including attorney’s fees, resulting directly or indirectly from any claim or demand against Interactive or its suppliers by a third party arising out of or related to the Data or any service, report, analysis or publication derived therefrom. Neither Interactive nor its suppliers shall be liable for any claim or demand against you by a third party.
(g) Neither you nor Interactive shall be liable for (i) any special, indirect or consequential damages (even if advised of the possibility of such), (ii) any delay by reason of circumstances beyond the control of the relevant person, including acts of civil or military authority, national emergencies, labor difficulties, fire, mechanical breakdown, flood or catastrophe, acts of God, insurrection, war, riots, or failure beyond the control of the relevant person of transportation or power supply, or (iii) any claim that arose more than one year prior to the institution of suit therefor.
(h) In the event that the Data contains evaluations, rather than market quotations, for certain securities or certain other data related to such securities, the following provisions will apply: (i) evaluated securities are typically complicated financial instruments. There are many methodologies (including computer-based analytical modeling and individual security evaluations) available to generate approximations of the market value of such securities, and there is significant professional disagreement about which is best. No evaluation method, including those used by Interactive, may consistently generate approximations that correspond to actual “traded” prices of the instruments; (ii) Interactive’s methodologies used to provide the pricing portion of certain Data may rely on evaluations; however, you acknowledge that there may be errors or defects in Interactive’s software, databases, or methodologies that may cause resultant evaluations to be inappropriate for use in certain applications; and (iii) you assume all responsibility for edit checking, external verification of evaluations, and ultimately the appropriateness of use of evaluations and other pricing data provided, regardless of any efforts made by Interactive in this respect. You shall indemnify and hold Interactive completely harmless in the event that errors, defects, or inappropriate evaluations are made available via the Data.

(D) S&P CUSIP
(a) Subscriber agrees and acknowledges that the CUSIP Database and the information contained therein is and shall remain valuable intellectual property owned by, or licensed to, CUSIP Global Services (“CGS”) and the American Bankers Association (“ABA”), and that no proprietary rights are being transferred to Subscriber in such materials or in any of the information contained therein. Any use by Subscriber outside of the clearing and settlement of transactions requires a license from CGS, along with an associated fee based on usage. Subscriber agrees that misappropriation or misuse of such materials will cause serious damage to CGS and ABA, and that in such event money damages may not constitute sufficient compensation to CGS and ABA; consequently, Subscriber agrees that in the event of any misappropriation or misuse, CGS and ABA shall have the right to obtain injunctive relief in addition to any other legal or financial remedies to which CGS and ABA may be entitled.
(b) Subscriber agrees that Subscriber shall not publish or distribute in any medium the CUSIP Database or any information contained therein or summaries or subsets thereof to any person or entity except in connection with the normal clearing and settlement of security transactions. Subscriber further agrees that the use of CUSIP numbers and descriptions is not intended to create or maintain, and does not serve the purpose of the creation or maintenance of, a master file or database of CUSIP descriptions or numbers for itself or any third party recipient of such service and is not intended to create and does not serve in any way as a substitute for the CUSIP MASTER TAPE, PRINT, DB, INTERNET, ELECTRONIC, CD-ROM Services and/or any other future services developed by the CGS.
(c) NEITHER CGS, ABA NOR ANY OF THEIR AFFILIATES MAKE ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE ACCURACY, ADEQUACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE CUSIP DATABASE. ALL SUCH MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED TO SUBSCRIBER ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE NOR WITH RESPECT TO THE RESULTS WHICH MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF SUCH MATERIALS. NEITHER CGS, ABA NOR THEIR AFFILIATES SHALL HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS NOR SHALL THEY BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL, EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF CGS, ABA OR ANY OF THEIR AFFILIATES PURSUANT TO ANY CAUSE OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE FEE PAID BY SUBSCRIBER FOR ACCESS TO SUCH MATERIALS IN THE MONTH IN WHICH SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS ALLEGED TO HAVE ARISEN. FURTHERMORE, CGS AND ABA SHALL HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR DELAYS OR FAILURES DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND THEIR CONTROL.
(d) Subscriber agrees that the foregoing terms and conditions shall survive any termination of its right of access to the materials identified above.
