Welcome to Motley Fool Premier 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 Fools Rules (our standard terms and conditions), which are incorporated by reference.

Motley Fool Premier Pass
Motley Fool Premier 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 Premier Pass include Stock Advisor, Rule Breakers, Inside Value, Income Investor, Rule Your Retirement, Hidden Gems, Wealth Defender, Total Income, Motley Fool Explorer, Motley Fool Supernova, Motley Fool Pro, and Million Dollar Portfolio. From time to time, we may change the features, offerings and Premium Services included in your Premier Pass membership but we will provide you with advance notice of any material changes. You may terminate your membership at any time pursuant to the terms of your subscription.
All services and features provided by Premier 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.
Motley Fool Premier Pass gives you access to several of The Motley Fool’s real money portfolio services, including Million Dollar Portfolio, Motley Fool Pro, and Motley Fool Supernova. The Portfolio Services are funded by The Motley Fool, and any realized gains or losses will belong to the Fool.
The Portfolio Services must complete their transactions within a specified period of time (see the individual Portfolio Service for the exact time frame) but in no event can an action be taken prior to alerting members. In other words, we will not act without first telling you.
If you’re new to any of the Portfolio Services, we encourage you to review the individual services and learn more about their methodologies and strategies before committing your own resources. Please just don’t mimic our actions. The Portfolio Services employ different strategies of varying degrees of risk, and you must determine what you can afford and tolerate in light of the risks involved.
Premier Portfolio Frameworks
In addition to the Portfolio Services, Premier Pass includes several Premier Portfolio Frameworks. The Portfolio Frameworks are intended to be used as frameworks to help members understand general allocation guidance for different model portfolio goals. The Portfolio Frameworks are 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 Frameworks are not actively managed portfolios. 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.
