Manner of Use

THE INFORMATION ON OUR WEB SITE IS PROVIDED AS A CONVENIENCE TO YOU, TO BE USED BY YOU FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Nothing contained in our web site constitutes investment advice and it should not be used as the basis of any investment decision. Decisions made by you based on information contained in our web site are your sole responsibility. You agree to hold Personal Fund, Inc. harmless against any claims for damages, losses and expenses arising from any decisions that you make based on such information.

YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT COSTS CALCULATED BY THE PERSONAL FUND MUTUAL FUND COST CALCULATOR ARE NOT GUARANTEES OF FUTURE COSTS, BUT ONLY REASONABLE ESTIMATES BASED UPON INFORMATION YOU SUPPLY AND EXPENSE INFORMATION DISCLOSED BY MUTUAL FUNDS. Since past costs are not always an accurate predictor of future costs, you must understand that the Personal Fund Mutual Fund Cost Calculator is only a tool to be used in making investment decisions and not a substitute for your informed judgement.

We can not and do not guarantee the future performance of your fund investments or promise any specific level of fund performance.

Investors are advised to consult with their own tax advisers concerning the application of foreign, federal, state and local taxes to an investment in mutual funds.
