To provide our Services, we must process information about you and your clients. We store the content and collect aggregate statistics relating to that content and other information you provide when you sign up for an account, add employees, or send handshakes to others. We extract client information for you when you choose to produce documents and files on Financial Disclosure, but we do not view, use, or extract insights from this information. We also collect information about how you use our Services, such as the types of content you add; the people you handshake with; and the frequency and duration of your actions. We will also collect information about your payment plan when you register or update your plan.
If you decide not to renew your subscription, or decide to cancel, we will archive you and your clients’ information and remove it from our live server after 14 days. You will have the opportunity to download your information prior to its removal. If you decide to re-activate our Services, you can retrieve this information from our archives for a fee. Your clients will not be able to access their file if you cancel or do not renew your subscription.
You have our permission to download, view, copy, and print both your and your clients’ content. You may also download, view, copy, and print the documents and forms that we create for you. You do not have permission to download and use any other materials. Financial Disclosure’s directory and search criteria cannot be used for commercial purposes. You may not download the Financial Disclosure Interview for use outside of the Financial Disclosure platform. We can terminate this condition, without notice, if you breach our Terms.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing [email protected]
However, if SIËSDE is not able to resolve a dispute with you after attempting to do so informally, then as a condition to your use of Services we mutually agree to resolve such dispute first through mediation or, if required, finally through binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
If we find that we are unable to reach resolution by informal discussion, we agree to attempt to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of the use of SIËSDE Services by mediation. Furthermore, you and SIËSDE each agree that respective good faith participation in mediation is a condition precedent to pursuing any other legal or equitable remedy. Either you or SIËSDE may commence the mediation process by providing written notice to the other, setting forth the subject of the dispute, claim, or controversy. Within 15 days after the receipt of the written notice, the recipient shall deliver a written response to the sender. The initial mediation session shall be held 30 days after the initial notice. You and SIËSDE agree to share equally in the fees for the mediation process (which shall not include any expenses incurred by each party for its own legal representation in connection with the dispute resolution process). Each party shall pay its own additional expenses relating to the dispute resolution process. Both parties understand the confidential nature of mediation and further acknowledge and agree that all discussions, offers, statements, and agreements made in the course of mediation shall be confidential and, additionally, inadmissible in any other legal proceeding involving the parties.
If a settlement cannot be made through the mediation process, you and SIËSDE agree to arbitrate all disputes, claims, and controversies between us. The arbitration will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Notwithstanding our agreement to mediate and arbitrate disputes, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
SIËSDE may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any unauthorized use or abuse of the Services without first engaging in the dispute resolution process described above.
SIËSDE may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any intellectual property infringement without first engaging in the dispute resolution process described above.
You agree that by agreeing to use these Services, you are waiving your right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. SIËSDE may, in the future, make changes to these provisions regarding dispute resolution by providing notice in accordance with the section of the Terms entitled “Modifications”.

IF THERE IS LIABILITY FOUND ON THE PART OF SIËSDE, IT WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID TO SIËSDE BY YOU FOR THE SERVICES OR MATERIALS, EXCEPT AS ALLOWED PURSUANT TO THE SECTION ENTITLED “DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY MEDIATION AND BINDING ARBITRATION”.
