Other Spendgo and third party products and services
We may offer to you other services, features, products, applications, online communities, or promotions provided by Spendgo. If you decide to use any of these other services, additional terms and conditions and separate fees may apply. Spendgo provides links to third-party websites providing services that we believe may be of interest to Spendgo users. If you decide to use any third party products or access any Third Party Sites, you are responsible for reviewing the third party's separate product terms, website terms and privacy policies. Spendgo does not endorse, warrant or guarantee the products or services available through any such offers, and Spendgo is not an agent or broker or otherwise responsible for the activities or policies of those web sites. Spendgo does not guarantee that the third-party offer information displayed through the Services are actually the terms that may be offered to you if you pursue the offer or that they are the best terms, lowest rates available in the market, or otherwise suitable for you. You must complete your own review and due diligence of any third-party offers, products or services, and Spendgo disclaims any express or implied obligation to do so.
Spendgo may provide automatic or voluntary account-related alerts from time to time. Spendgo may deliver these alerts to your computer, mobile phone, or other device or by such other method of using the Services that you select and Spendgo supports. Automatic alerts may be sent to you following certain changes made to your Spendgo account, such as a change in your account information. Spendgo may also send you alerts regarding promotions, third party offers and other information based on your preferences and the operation of the Services. Voluntary account alerts initially may be turned on by default as part of the subscription and enrollment process for the Services. They may then be customized, modified, deactivated or reactivated by you through changes to your account settings. Spendgo may add new alerts from time to time, or may cease to provide certain alerts at any time in its sole discretion. Each alert will have different options available, and you may be asked to select from among these options upon activation of your alerts service. When possible, electronic alerts will be sent to you at the Spendgo provide email address, but may be sent to the primary email address, mobile phone number, or other contact address you provided, and you may subsequently set your alerts to go to one or more accounts or devices. If your contact information changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Changes to your contact information will apply to all of your alerts. Alerts to mobile phone numbers may trigger charges from your mobile carrier or other third parties. Because alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your password. However, alerts may include your login ID and some information about your accounts. Anyone with access to your email, mobile phone, or other device or accounts receiving alerts will be able to view the content of these alerts and it is your responsibility to maintain the privacy and security of this information. Furthermore, if your computer, mobile phone, or other device or account that is receiving or previously has received alerts is lost, stolen, or misplaced, or is otherwise compromised, Spendgo is not and cannot be responsible for any information or alerts that may be accessed by third parties and you are encouraged in any such case to immediately change your password and login ID from a secure device. Any automatic or voluntary alerts provided by Spendgo may be delayed, blocked, or prevented by a variety of factors. While Spendgo will use reasonable efforts to provide alerts in a timely manner with accurate information, we can neither assure or guarantee the timely delivery or the accuracy of the information contained in any alert. You agree that Spendgo will not be liable or responsible for: any delays, blockage, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any alert, any errors in the information contained in an alert; or for any actions taken or omitted to be taken by you or any third party as a result of or in reliance upon any alert provided by us or not delivered by us.
