Third Party Supplier Notices
In addition to the terms and conditions of any license agreement for MSCI information, services or products (“MSCI Products”) entered into with MSCI Inc. and/or its affiliates (“MSCI”) by customers (“Customer(s)”), each Customer must comply with the terms and conditions required by third party suppliers (“Supplier(s)”) regarding Customer’s use of Supplier content, data, software and other materials (“Materials”) within MSCI Products. Customers may also be required to pay additional fees associated with Supplier Materials. If a Customer does not comply with a Supplier’s terms, MSCI may be required to terminate the Customer’s access to that Supplier’s Materials, without any remedy to Customer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth below, none of the additional terms and conditions of MSCI Suppliers shall supersede (nor shall MSCI waive) any MSCI proprietary and/or intellectual property rights in MSCI Products.
Additional terms and conditions required by MSCI’s Suppliers with respect to its Materials are provided in the expanders below. If Customer receives Materials from a Supplier not listed below via MSCI Products, additional terms and conditions related to such Materials may apply.
If a Customer is authorized to utilize certain computer software package(s) through MSCI’s systems (including RiskManager) or through authorized access via the Andrew Davidson & Co., Inc. (“AD&Co”) website or other interface provided by AD&Co containing one or more of the following proprietary models: (1) a Mortgage-Backed Securities Pool Level Prepayment Model for fixed, balloon, adjustable rate, and hybrid ARM mortgages that produces monthly prepayment forecasts for generic conventional, government, ALT-A and Jumbo Prime mortgages (2) an Enhanced Pool Level and Loan Level Prepayment Model for mortgage and asset-backed securities that produces monthly prepayment forecasts for mortgage, auto, manufactured housing and home equity loans, using enhanced pool level or loan level data (together and separately, “Models”) then the following terms are express conditions of Customer’s receipt and review of the Model:
All rights, title and interest in and to the Model are retained by AD&Co. The limited right conferred here is nontransferable and is revocable at will by AD&Co. Also:
- Access to the Model is provided to Customer on a confidential basis and is to be used and handled by Customer only to the limited extent necessary for its use through the MSCI system.
- Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Model and any documentation provided to Customer is the sole and exclusive property of AD&Co and all ownership interests in such property shall remain vested in AD&Co subject to AD&Co’s right to transfer, assign or license such rights, title, or interests.
- Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Model is a commercially valuable, proprietary, unpublished product of AD&Co, who are design and development experts and have invested considerable time and money to the development of the Model. The Model is based on substantial trade secrets of AD&Co, protected under federal and international copyright treaties.
- Customer agrees not to disclose or allow access to the Model to any individuals other than employees and agents having a need to know such information. Customer shall use its best efforts to protect the Model against any unauthorized or unlawful use, distribution, disclosure, dissemination, or copying. Customer shall not transfer, network, copy, decompile or reverse engineer the Model, or permit any other entity, employee or agent to transfer, network, copy, decompile or reverse engineer the Model. It is expressly agreed that Customer’s breach of these obligations will cause irreparable harm and that a remedy at law would be inadequate. Therefore, in addition to any and all remedies available at law or in equity, Customer agrees that AD&Co will be entitled to obtain an injunction in the event of any threatened or actual violation of such obligations. The terms of this provision shall survive the expiration of Customer’s agreement for the MSCI product, and shall continue in full force and effect for so long as Customer continues to use, possess, or have access to the Model, including any trade secrets embodied or reflected therein.
- Upon termination or expiration of the agreement for the MSCI Product, regardless of the reason, Customer must return to AD&Co or destroy all copies of the Model (including the underlying software, any upgrade and enhancements, and any documentation relating to the Model) in Customer’s possession, and in the possession of Customer’s affiliates, and Customer and its affiliates shall immediately cease all use of the Model.
- AD&CO MAKES NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION AS TO ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, CONDITION, SUITABILITY OR PERFORMANCE OF THE MODEL. AD&CO SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY TRAINING, OR INSTALLATION SERVICES, OR USE OF THE MODEL OR ITS OUTPUT IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH EVALUATION. Customer’s sole recourse in the event of any dissatisfaction with the Model is to stop using it and return it.

INTERACTIVE DATA PRICING AND REFERENCE DATA
INTERACTIVE DATA PRICING AND REFERENCE DATA LLC (“IDC”) AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS OR ANY OTHER MATTER WITH RESPECT TO IDC SERVICES.

(a) IDC and its suppliers shall have no liability to the Customer, or a third party, for errors, omissions or malfunctions in the IDC Services, other than the obligation of IDC to endeavor, upon receipt of notice from Customer, to correct a malfunction, error, or omission in any services provided by IDC which may include, but is not limited to, data, software, data access, selected or bulk delivery of data, hosted solutions, contract programming, consulting and technical assistance (“Services”).
(b) Customer acknowledges that the Services are intended for use as an aid to institutional investors, registered brokers or professionals of similar sophistication in making informed judgments concerning securities.
Customer accepts responsibility for, and acknowledges it exercises its own independent judgment in, its selection of any of the Services, its selection of the use or intended use of such, and any results obtained. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to be a waiver of any rights existing under applicable law for the protection of investors.
(c) The Customer shall indemnify IDC and its suppliers against and hold IDC harmless from any and all losses, damages, liability, costs, including attorney’s fees, resulting directly or indirectly from any claim or demand against IDC or its suppliers by a third party arising out of or related to any Services received by the Customer, or any data, information, service, report, analysis or publication derived therefrom. Neither IDC nor its suppliers shall be liable for any claim or demand against Customer by a third party.
(d) Neither party shall be liable for (i) any special, indirect or consequential damages (even if advised of the possibility of such), (ii) any delay by reason of circumstances beyond its control, including acts of civil or military authority, national emergencies, labor difficulties, fire, mechanical breakdown, floor or catastrophe, acts of God, insurrection, war, riots, or failure beyond its control of transportation or power supply, or (iii) any claim that arose more than one year prior to the institution of suit therefor.
In the event that Customer at any time receives data from IDC containing evaluations, rather than market quotations, for certain securities or certain other data related to such securities, the following provisions will apply: (i) evaluated securities are typically complicated financial instruments. There are many methodologies (including computer-based analytical modeling and individual security evaluations) available to generate approximations of the market value of such securities, and there is significant professional disagreement about which is best. No evaluation method, including those used by UDC, may consistently generate approximations that correspond to actual “traded” prices of the instruments; (ii) IDC’s methodologies used to provide the pricing portion of certain data may rely on evaluations; however, Customer acknowledges that there may be errors or defects in IDC’s software, databases, or methodologies that may cause resultant evaluations to be inappropriate for use in certain applications; and (iii) Customer assumes all responsibility for edit checking, external verification of evaluations, and ultimately the appropriateness of use of evaluations and other pricing data provided in the Services via MSCI’s Products regardless of any efforts made by IDC in this respect. Customer shall indemnify and hold IDC completely harmless in the event that errors, defects, or inappropriate evaluations are made available via the Service.
If Licensee is permitted to include any INCANS™ Score in any external, internal, or regulatory reports or publications then Licensee shall add “INCANS™ Score” in close proximity to such score.

INTEX AND EACH PROVIDER SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY KNOWLEDGE OF ANY PURPOSE FOR WHICH CUSTOMER SHALL USE THE PROVIDERS’ DATA AND INTEX’S PRODUCTS. CUSTOMER EXPRESSLY AGREES THAT THE PRODUCTS ARE TO BE USED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND THAT THE USE OF THE PRODUCTS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER, RECOMMENDATION OR SOLICITATION TO PURCHASE, HOLD OR SELL ANY SECURITY.
Limitation of liability
IN NO EVENT WILL INTEX BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF A CUSTOMER’S USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROVIDER DATA OR INTEX’S PRODUCTS, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILTY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF SUCH CLAIM BE MADE IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, EXCEPT FOR DIRECT DAMAGES AS A RESULT OF GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT ON THE PART OF INTEX. INTEX AND ITS PROVIDERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO EACH CUSTOMER’S OBLIGATIONS TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ALL RELEVANT PRIVACY AND SECURITIES LAWS.
Portfolio level disclaimer
INTEX models certain deals that are categorized as “Portfolio Level.” Portfolio Level may be at a lower level of accuracy due to a lack of information such as loan level data, pooling and servicing agreements, insurance agreements and/or other information. Results from Portfolio Level models may not be as accurate as INTEX’s non-portfolio models. INTEX shall not be liable to Customer with respect to Portfolio Level deal models for any loss or damage whatsoever, caused in any way, arising directly or indirectly from the use of such deal models.
