THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE LEGALLY BINDING. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY.
In these Terms and Conditions, unless the context requires otherwise, terms defined in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) have the same meaning given to those terms in that Act and the following terms have the meaning set out below.
OFS means OneVue Fund Services Pty Limited (ABN 18 107 333 308).
OFS Online Services means the internet website provided by OFS which enables You to access certain information in relation to your or your Client’s holding of Products in a Fund, or the Fund generally, whether as:
Client means a person holding Products in a Fund on whose behalf a Representative is authorised to act.
Fund means a managed investment scheme, unit trust, partnership or other entity (as the case may be), whether registered or unregistered and whether listed on the Australian Securities Exchange or not, where (and only where) the register of members for that scheme, trust, partnership or other entity is maintained by OFS.
Product means a financial product which has been issued to You or your Client by a Fund.
Representative means a responsible entity or a trustee of a Fund and its authorised representatives, a manager of a Fund (where the manager is different to the responsible entity of the Fund) and its authorised representatives, a representative of a dealer group authorised to distribute Products of a Fund or a financial Adviser authorised in writing to act on behalf of a Client.
You means a person holding Products in a Fund or a Representative (as the case may be).
Through OFS Online Services You will be able to see details of your, or your Client’s, holdings of Products in a Fund.
The first time You access OFS Online Services You will be required to access the website using a User ID and a temporary password which will have been assigned and notified to You by OFS. After accessing OFS Online Services for the first time, You will be able to change your password. Your User ID and chosen password will then be used by You to gain access to OFS Online Services on an ongoing basis.
For Representatives associated with more than one Fund in circumstances where those Funds are managed by more than one manager, you will be assigned a different User ID and password in respect of each manager.
Your User ID and password must be kept confidential and should not be recorded in the same place as any other information relevant to your, or your Client’s, holding in a Fund. Where You do disclose your User ID and/or password to another person then, to the extent permitted by law, OFS disclaims all liability for any loss or damage that You (or your Client, if applicable) may suffer as a result of that person accessing OFS Online Services and gaining access to your, or your Client’s, information.
When you access OFS Online Services, You will be able to view certain information regarding your, or your Client’s, holdings in a Fund, including:
Except as described below, OFS Online Services is an enquiry only website. You may run reports in relation to your, or your Client’s, holding in a Fund, and download certain information, but You will not be able to effect transactions (for example, transfers of Products) or change source information through the website.
If You use ‘Investor Online’, then You will be able to make changes through that web portal to certain static data relating to your holding in a Fund, namely your contact details (for example, your residential address and telephone number), Tax File Number and Australian Business Number (if applicable).
When you supply information through OFS Online Services, OFS will facilitate the recording of the information against the holding You have nominated. However, OFS does not guarantee that the tasks can be effected electronically. There will be a delay of one business day before any changes You make to information through OFS Online Services are processed, updated and visible on OFS Online Services.
Where You download information from OFS Online Services and You make, or another person makes, changes to that information then, to the extent permitted by law, OFS disclaims all liability for any loss or damage that You (or your Client, if applicable) may suffer as a result of that information being manipulated.
The information contained on OFS Online Services is not intended to be used as the basis for making any investment decision and must not be relied upon as investment advice.
If You want, or your Client wants, to change any details associated with your or your Client’s holding of Products (for example, contact details) and those changes cannot be made through OFS Online Services, then they must be recorded on the appropriate hard copy form and sent by mail to OFS. You can obtain the required form by calling the OneVue Call Centre.
OFS will use its reasonable endeavours to provide OFS Online Services in an uninterrupted manner. However, OFS reserves the right without notice to make any technical changes to OFS Online Services which it considers to be necessary or desirable, and will not be responsible in the event that any upgrade to OFS Online Services means that You are not able to temporarily access the website.
In addition, it is possible that OFS Online Services may be unavailable at any time without notice (for example, due to technological disruptions). OFS will not be liable in the event that OFS Online Services is not provided in a continuous and uninterrupted manner.
Where possible, OFS will seek to provide you with advance notice of any downtime that is to occur due to certain mechanical or software failures which may render OFS Online Services unavailable for a period of time. However, You acknowledge that they may not be able to do so.
