You may also upload documents to your Client Portal account through Website functionality, but you may only upload documents related to services being provided to you by RBT. The Client Portal may not be used to back-up ordinary materials or other records.
Client Portal accounts are allotted limited space for the storage of materials, and RBT is under no obligation to provide you with additional space if you exhaust your storage space.
If you direct or have previously directed RBT, via e-mail, phone or other method, to upload material to your account, or if you upload or have previously uploaded material to your account, you hereby consent to the transmission, storage and processing of such material by RBT and by RBT’s third-party information technology service provider.
