- Description of the Service
The Service is an accounting transaction management service that allows Members to consolidate and track their financial information on Myfirmaccounting.com. The system works by prompting an Accountant or Client to select a Financial Institution and enter in their online log in information. The Service then connects to a Third Party Solution that scrapes the Financial Institutions web site and extracts the data using the provided online bank/credit card access. The extracted data is then presented on the Service provider web site. The Service is provided to the client by Service provider without charge (it is free) and is meant as an aid to assist you in organizing and managing your finances. It is not intended to provide legal, tax or financial advice. Service provider charges a fee to the accountant that created your user name and login information.
- Account Information from Third Party Sites
With the Service, Members may direct Service provider to retrieve their own information maintained online by third-party financial institutions with which they have customer relationships, maintain accounts or engage in financial transactions (“Account Information”). Service provider makes no effort to review the Account Information for any purpose, including but not limited to accuracy, legality or non-infringement. Service provider is not responsible for the products and services offered by or on third-party sites. Service provider cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. Service provider cannot assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings. For example, when displayed through the Service, Account Information is only as fresh as the time shown, which reflects when the information is obtained from such sites. Such information may be more up-to-date when obtained directly from the relevant sites. You can refresh your Account Information through the Service, in the manner prescribed in the associated instructions.
