Terms and Conditions for Use of System
The following Terms and Conditions for Use of System (“Terms and Conditions”) apply to the system and services supplied by Yr Plans Inc. The term “Yr Plans” (“we” and “us”) refers to Yr Plans Inc. and its affiliates. Should you choose to speak with a Yr Plans representative (the “Agent”), you should note that you are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information you are providing, and Yr Plans will not incur any liability by reason of acting or failing to act in such respect. To avoid any verbal misrepresentation, Yr Plans offers you the ability to transact online. By using Yr Plans’ website and services (the “System”), you, the Yr Plans account holder (“you” or “your”), agree to the terms herein. These terms are in addition to any other customer agreements that govern any accounts which you may have with us but these Terms and Conditions replace and supersede any previous account agreements you might have had with Yr Plans. As a condition to accessing and using the System, you agree without modification to the Terms and Conditions which supplement general plan terms and any agreements between or among you, your employer, and Yr Plans. Yr Plans grants you a single, non-transferable and limited personal license to access and use the System. Each separate use of the System constitutes an acceptance of the Terms and Conditions as stated at that time.
Trademarks and Copyrights
Certain names, words, titles, phrases, logos, icons, graphics or designs found in the System (or other websites accessed from www.yrplans.com) may constitute trade names, trademarks or service marks, either registered or unregistered (“Trademarks”) of Yr Plans, or of third parties and are used under license by Yr Plans.

Users of this website may copy or utilize any information for their own personal use. You are prohibited to modify, distribute, transmit, publish or publicly display any such information in any manner, including electronic reproduction by “uploading” or “downloading”, without the prior written consent of Yr Plans.

Reservation of Rights.
Except for the rights and licenses granted in this Agreement, any and all intellectual property rights to or arising from the Website, Platform and Services shall remain the exclusive property of Yr Plans and its licensors. Nothing in the Terms gives you a right to use the Yr Plans or Yr Plans names, trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features without our prior written consent. Any unauthorized use of Yr Plans’ intellectual property rights is a violation of these Terms and Condition as well as a violation of intellectual property laws and treaties, including, without limitation copyright and trademark laws.
Creating an Account.
You must create an account in order to use the Services (your “Account”). When you register, your corporate email address will be used as your login name, and you must select a password. You are responsible for all the activity occurring on your Account, so please select a strong password, and do not share it with any other person. In no circumstances will Yr Plans be liable for any damages caused by any unauthorized access to or use of your Account.
As an Account holder, you agree that you are solely responsible for the confidentiality and security of your password. You agree not to disclose your password and keep it secure. Furthermore, you agree that you are responsible for all information entered through and under your login name and password, and any information or direction received by Yr Plans in this manner are deemed to have been received from you. All plan directions shall be deemed to be made at the time received by Yr Plans in the form received. You acknowledge that your password is unique to you and that Yr Plans does not have access to them.
If you suspect or become aware that someone has used your login name and password to access the System without your authorization, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us at the contact number listed on our website. No Yr Plans Agent will ask you for your password.
No Liability for Information or Data and No Advice
Yr Plans provides no advice. Information provided by Yr Plans either on-line or by speaking to an Agent is for informational purposes only and is not intended to provide investment, financial, legal, accounting or tax advice and may not be relied upon in that regard. Yr Plans does not provide investment advice with respect to the allocation of plan payments. You therefore will receive no advice from Yr Plans concerning the repayment of student loans or any other financial matters, and are solely responsible for assessing the appropriateness of any transaction through your Account. If you wish to receive any form of financial advice in connection with the repayment of your loan(s), it is your responsibility to contact your own financial advisor.
Yr Plans may record any telephone conversation between Yr Plans, you and your agents. Yr Plans may use these recordings to confirm your instructions, evaluate the quality of Yr Plans’ service and ensure compliance with its policies. The information on the System is subject to change without notice.
“Confidential Information” means information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) that the other party (“Receiving Party”) receives in connection with the Services, which based on the circumstances under which it was disclosed, a reasonable person would believe to be confidential to the Disclosing Party, including, without limitation, your employee’s information, details of your benefits plans, company financial information and any other non-public content posted, transmitted or accessed through the Services. A Receiving Party shall (i) limit access and use of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to those of Receiving Party’s employees and agents that require such access and use in connection with the Services; (ii) not disclose Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to third parties, unless authorized under this section of the Terms and Conditions; (iii) protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as it protects its own Confidential Information, but in any event with not less than a reasonable degree of care; and (iv) not use the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information for any purpose except as required to perform its obligations hereunder or as otherwise specifically permitted hereunder. Nothing in this section shall prevent a Receiving Party from disclosing Confidential Information to a third party to the extent that such Confidential Information is: (i) previously known to the Receiving Party prior to disclosure by the Disclosing Party, without any obligation of confidentiality; (ii) publicly known or becomes publicly known through no breach of these Terms and Conditions by the Receiving Party; (iii) rightfully received from a third party under no confidentiality obligation with respect to the Confidential Information; or (iv) independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
Withholdings and Fees
Where applicable, withholdings from your loan payments will include those mandated by your employer, tax authorities as well as the Yr Plans service fees associated with your transaction(s).
System Use Disclaimer
The Yr Plans services and web site provide an on-line platform for the management of student loan repayments (the “Services”). Yr Plans will use best efforts to offer you an electronic service that is reliable, secure, and capable of meeting your needs. From time to time, however, interruptions, delays, errors or other deficiencies in service may occur. This may be due to a variety of factors, most of which are outside Yr Plans’ control, including but not limited to acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labour problems, interruptions in the accessibility of the Internet, a system outage in facilities of a third party service provider (including data providers, and middleware and back office service providers). Each of these factors can contribute to delays or errors in service or system outages. You may experience difficulties accessing your information.
