Motley Fool Market Pass Terms of Service

Welcome to Motley Fool Market Pass (the "Service"). This page sets forth the special Terms and Conditions by which The Motley Fool provides you with access to the Service (the "Terms"). It supplements the Fool's Rules (our standard terms and conditions), which are incorporated by reference. By subscribing to, and using the Service you are agreeing to abide by these Terms as well as the Fool's Rules INCLUDING THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER DETAILED IN SECTION 10 OF THE FOOL’S RULES.

1. Motley Fool Market Pass

Motley Fool Market Pass provides you with access to selected Premium Services from The Motley Fool as well as other tools, features, and offerings. Selected Premium Services included with Market Pass include Stock Advisor, Rule Breakers, Inside Value, Income Investor, and Hidden Gems. From time to time, we may change the features, offerings and Premium Services included in your Market Pass membership but we will provide you with advance notice of any material changes.

All services and features provided by Market Pass are provided “AS IS.” The Fool assumes no responsibility for the timeliness or delivery of any content or the deletion or failure to store any personalized or customized settings.

The Motley Fool is not in the business of rendering personalized or individualized investment advice. We don't (and can't) know your financial situation, risk tolerances, or investing objectives. Accordingly, the information provided along with the decisions made and actions taken by the Service do not constitute a recommendation that a particular portfolio, framework, security, strategy or action taken is suitable for you, or any specific person for that matter.

The Motley Fool and the writers will not be liable for any investment decision you make, or action you take based upon reliance of any material you read here. The Motley Fool is a company of investors writing for investors and as such, the writers (and/or the company) may own stocks mentioned by the Service. For more information about writer disclosure, as well as a list of places where you can view stocks our writers and analysts own, see our disclosure policy.

2. Portfolio Framework.

In addition to the Premium Services, Market Pass includes a Portfolio Framework. The Portfolio Framework is intended to be used as a framework to help members understand general allocation guidance for a model portfolio. The Portfolio Framework is shown with example investments drawn from Premium Services’ Best Buys Now, stocks determined to be timely opportunities by our FoolIQ quantitative research team, and other investments as we deem appropriate. The investments listed are intended to be examples and the Portfolio Framework is not an actively managed portfolio. The Motley Fool may or may not have positions in the investments listed. Investors who would like to view an actively managed portfolio are recommended to refer the Portfolio Services, which are not included with Market Pass.

3. Reports.

Market Pass may be sold with Premium Reports, or a combination of Premium Reports. Reports may, or may not, be available to previous subscribers or subscribers of other Premium Services at the sole discretion of The Motley Fool. Any fees associated with Premium Reports are not refundable, except in accordance with state laws.

4. Disclaimer of Warranties and Liabilities

This disclaimer of liability does not apply in New Jersey.

Although this is included in the Fool's Rules, it bears repeating (and capitalizing):


Some States do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. In such states, our liability and that of our third party content providers will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law. This disclaimer of warranties does not apply in New Jersey.
