2. If you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent that you have the authority to accept these Terms on behalf of the entity and to bind the entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to the Catch. If you do not agree with all of these Terms, then you must not accept them and you are not permitted to use the Services.
These terms include, among other things, your authorization for debits and credits from and to your bank account (as defined below) via the automated clearing house network (“ACH”).
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND Catch THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT.

As part of this authorization, we may at registration and from time to time as part of our ongoing compliance requirements, import certain information from financial institutions to verify your Bank Account information. In some cases, we will directly access this information. We may also integrate third party service providers to facilitate this Service solely for the purpose of importing your information.

6. We Do Not Provide Professional Advice. Unless expressly stated in writing in a separate agreement between Catch and you, Catch does not provide legal, financial, accounting or other professional services or advice.
7. Catch Services. Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the Services as permitted by the features of the Services. Catch reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Services and the Catch Content (as defined below).
a. Purpose of the Services. You may only use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial use and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party. The purpose of the Services is to try to help you set up benefits and savings with limited effort.
b. What we do: Supporting Your Saving & Investment Goals. We monitor and analyze your Bank Account. Based on our analytics, we identify funds in your Bank Account that may be income based on the plan you set up and your ACH authorization (as described below). We will either (a) notify you and ask you to verify a resultant transaction or (b) act upon rules you have set up in the App to automate transaction processing. We will then transfer such funds from your Bank Account to your Catch Account via ACH. We do not guarantee that all transactions will be identified or acted upon. Some transactions may be missed. You should periodically check your transactions to ensure accuracy. We are not liable for any failure to transfer funds for any reason including but not limited to the use of Autopilot, system outages or defects. Only funds from your Bank Account may be transferred to your Catch Account. Depending on the Services requested, funds in your Catch Account are either held at FDIC-insured or SIPC insured institutions for your benefit. For instance, funds used for your Savings Components are held in a FDIC insured bank, while funds used for the Wealth Component are held in an SIPC insured account.
c. Authorization to Transfer Funds & Initiate Payments. Certain services Catch provides require your authorization in order to initiate the transfer of funds. You agree to authorize Catch to initiate the transfer of funds (as detailed below). Catch may initiate transfers between your designated Bank Account(s), your Catch Account with BBVA, your account at Catch’s broker/dealer partner, and pay-to accounts for payees that you identify and designate. These fund transfers may be ACH credit or debit, Check, Wire, electronic, and other payment transfer methods. Your authorization includes transfers both in response to your direct request and automatically based on instructions you provide (e.g. rules-based instructions as part of the Catch Autopilot Always/Never income functionality).
It is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds in your Bank Account for the fund transfer activity initiated by Catch. If there are not sufficient funds, Catch may choose to decline or cancel the request to transfer funds. Catch is not responsible for any associated fees assessed by Your Bank (the bank where your Bank Account is), including, but not limited to, overdraft fees. Catch is not responsible for any penalties or late fees incurred for payments that are not processed due to insufficient funds or other errors.
d. Building a Custom Plan. You can determine which Catch Services are best suited for your needs. For instance, you can establish an investment strategy using our Wealth Components service. Based on the information we have about you, we will provide recommendations for a financial strategy that is intended to fit your financial profile. You will be the one deciding how of your paycheck you wish to set aside. We do not make financial decisions on your behalf of otherwise control or direct your investment approach. Any data we provide is for information purposes only so that you can make a decision that fits your personal financial and personal situation.
e. Catch Capital Management LLC (“Catch Capital”). Although Catch Capital carefully evaluates potential returns based on historic performance, Catch Capital makes no representation regarding the likelihood or probability that any actual or proposed account allocation among Wealth Components will in fact achieve a particular investment outcome or goal. Past performance is not a guarantee of future success, and, in fact, volatility means that returns in any period may be far above or below those of a previous period. Some customers may have investment results that materially differ from those indicated by our investment tools and projections. Investments at Catch Capital may lose value. Catch Capital is unable to predict or forecast market fluctuations or other uncertainties that may affect the value of any investment. Model predictions are inherently limited in that they do not represent actual trading nor material economic or market factors that might have had an impact on Catch Capitals’s advice. Portfolio performance projected are based on Catch Capital’s current recommended portfolios, and, for periods that pre-date the issuance of funds in our current recommended portfolios, broad market indexes. Portfolio performance projected account for the reinvestment of dividends as well as investment fees. While the features within the Wealth Components are designed to provide helpful investing guidance, as an individual, you must carefully consider the appropriateness of the proposed portfolios in light of your own personal financial circumstances, including cash flow needs, tax circumstances, or other complex or subjective concerns. You are urged to use all available resources to educate yourself about investing in general, as well as the investments and overall composition of your portfolio and Wealth Components. Additionally, market conditions and your personal financial circumstances may change - perhaps suddenly or maybe gradually over time. Monitoring and adjusting your Wealth Components to suit changing circumstances is your responsibility, and it is recommended that you reassess any investing program on a regular basis to ensure that it remains consistent with your current financial resources and investment objectives.
f. Investment Commentary. The Services contain commentary and links to certain articles only as a convenience. Linked articles may have been written by third parties not affiliated with Catch. No information contained in these articles has been endorsed or approved by Catch, and Catch is not responsible for content. No information accessed through these articles constitutes a recommendation by Catch to buy, sell, or hold any security, financial product or instrument discussed therein within a Wealth Component. This information neither is, nor should be construed, as an offer, or a solicitation of an offer, to buy or sell securities by Catch. You shall be fully responsible for any investment decisions you make for your Wealth Components, and such decisions will be based solely on your evaluation of your financial circumstances, investment objectives, risk tolerance, and liquidity needs.
g. Disclaimer. Catch Capital is a financial adviser only in regards to the retirement product provided. For other benefits and plans, Catch Financial, Inc. is not providing financial advice in the Services. Your financial situation is unique. We are not responsible for ensuring your Bank Account has sufficient funds for your needs, purposes, or transactions.

However, certain features or services offered through the Site may be offered only to paying customers.

Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 2 “Changes to Terms or Services” above, if Catch changes any of the terms of this Section 22 “Dispute Resolution” after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to [email]) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Catch’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Catch in accordance with the terms of this Section 22 “Dispute Resolution” as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
f. Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 22(d) of these Terms (“Class Action Waiver”), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.
24. General Terms.
a. Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Catch and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Catch and you regarding the Services and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Catch’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Catch may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
b. Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by Catch under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
c. Waiver of Rights. Catch’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Catch. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
d. Assignment. You may not transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder or your Catch Account in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without our prior written consent. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may transfer, assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations hereunder without your consent.
e. Third-Party Beneficiary. You agree that our third-party services providers are third-party beneficiaries of the applicable provisions of these Terms, with all rights to enforce such provisions as if such service providers were a party to these Terms.
f. Miscellaneous. You will be responsible for paying, withholding, filing, and reporting all taxes, duties, and other governmental assessments associated with your activity in connection with the Services, provided that we may, in our sole discretion, do any of the foregoing on your behalf or for ourselves. The failure of either you or us to exercise, in any way, any right herein will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
g. Your consent to use electronic signatures and communications
