General Risk Disclaimer

Investors Alley Corp. (the “Company”) is a publisher of financial news, opinions and research and is not a securities broker-dealer or an investment adviser.

  1. The information provided by the newsletters, opinions, and research related to various markets (collectively referred to as the “Services”) is not customized or personalized to any particular risk profile or tolerance. Trading and investing is not for everyone. The information published by the Company is not a customized or personalized recommendation or solicitation to buy, sell, hold, or invest in particular financial products, and the Services are not intended to provide money management advice or services. The Services are intended to supplement your own research and analysis.
  1. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Trading and investing involve substantial risk. Trading on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The Company does not make any guarantee or other promise as to any results that may be obtained from using the Services.  No person subscribing for the Services (“Subscriber”) should make any investment decision without first consulting his or her own personal financial adviser, broker or consultant. The Company disclaims any and all liability in the event anything contained in the Services proves to be inaccurate, incomplete or unreliable, or results in any investment or other loss by a Subscriber.
  1. You should trade or invest only “risk capital” – money you can afford to lose. Trading and investing involves high risk and you can lose the entire principal amount invested or more.
  1. All investments and trading strategies carry risk and all trading decisions made by a person remain the responsibility of that person. There is no guarantee that systems, indicators, or trading signals will result in profits or that they will not produce losses. Subscribers should fully understand all risks associated with any kind of trading or investing before engaging in such activities.
  1. Some profit examples are based on hypothetical or simulated trading. This means the trades are not actual trades and instead are hypothetical trades based on real market prices at the time the recommendation is disseminated. No actual money is invested, and no trades are executed. Hypothetical or simulated performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. The hypothetical results do not include the costs of subscriptions, commissions, or other fees that may be charged. Because the trades underlying these examples have not actually been executed, the results may understate or overstate the impact of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading services in general are also designed with the benefit of hindsight, which may not be relevant to actual trading. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. The Company makes no representations or warranties that any person will or is likely to achieve profits similar to those shown.
  1. No representation is being made that you will achieve profits or the same results as any person providing a testimonial. No representation is being made that any person providing a testimonial is likely to continue to experience profitable trading after the date on which the testimonial was provided, and in fact the person providing the testimonial may have experienced losses.  Any profit amount mentioned in a testimonial may be unrealized gains.
  1. The results and experiences described in the Services are not typical. Most people do not make a profit trading or investing; however, they still receive a financial education from the Services.  You cannot necessarily expect to achieve the results described in the Services and your results will vary depending on risk tolerance, amount of risk capital utilized, size of trading position and other factors. Any modification or change to a trading strategy can completely alter the results of a trade or investment. Oftentimes, persons ignore rules or risk parameters, and any such actions are taken entirely at the Subscriber’s own election and at the Subscriber’s own risk.
  1. Auto-trading, or any broker or adviser-directed type of trading, is not supported or endorsed by the Company. For additional information regarding auto-trading, you may visit the SEC’s website: All About Auto-Trading, https://www.sec.gov/reportspubs/investor-publications/ investorpubsautotradinghtm.html. The Company does not recommend or refer subscribers to broker-dealers.  You should perform your own due diligence with respect to satisfactory broker-dealers and whether to open a brokerage account. You should always consult with your own professional advisers regarding equities, options on equities, and any other type of trading.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration 

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

1. Agreement to Arbitrate

This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in these Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Financial Answers, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, any advertising, or any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms of Service, you and Financial Answers are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

2. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief

YOU AND FINANCIAL ANSWERS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND FINANCIAL ANSWERS AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION. 

3. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution

Financial Answers is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support for the applicable Site listed below. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Financial Answers should be sent to [[email protected]] (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Financial Answers and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Financial Answers may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Financial Answers or you will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Financial Answers is entitled.

4. Arbitration Procedures

Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its websites, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, https://www.adr.org/consumer. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Unless Financial Answers and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, Financial Answers agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

5. Costs of Arbitration

Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, Financial Answers will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Financial Answers will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Financial Answers will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.

6. Confidentiality

All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

7. Severability

If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement will be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of these Terms of Service will continue to apply.

8. Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement

Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, Financial Answers agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Service, you may reject any such change by sending Financial Answers written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).

Termination

You agree that Financial Answers, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including for lack of use or if Financial Answers believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of the Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Financial Answers may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of these Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Financial Answers may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that Financial Answers will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.

User Disputes

You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with the Service, and Financial Answers will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. Financial Answers reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.

General

These Terms of Service (together with the terms incorporated by reference herein) constitute the entire agreement between you and Financial Answers governing your access and use of the Service, and supersede any prior agreements between you and Financial Answers with respect to the Service. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use Third-Party Services, third-party content or third-party software. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Financial Answers submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within New York, New York. The failure of Financial Answers to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of these Terms of Service and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Service to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign these Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Financial Answers, but Financial Answers may assign or transfer these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. As used in these Terms of Service, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, will not be deemed to be terms of limitation, but rather will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.” Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service. Financial Answers will not be in default hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations where such failure or delay is due to civil disturbances, riot, epidemic, hostilities, war, terrorist attack, embargo, natural disaster, acts of God, flood, fire, sabotage, fluctuations or unavailability of electrical power, network access or equipment, or any other circumstances or causes beyond Financial Answers’ reasonable control.

TRADING RESTRICTION COMPLIANCE AND FULL DISCLOSURE

The Company has a robust and enforceable trading restriction policy that applies and is agreed to by all editors, analysts, and traders for publications or any other content produced by the Company, whether for content that is purchase or freely available, and that applies to other individuals identified by the Company in its sole discretion.

Our trading restrictions apply to all covered persons and apply to the initial coverage of all stocks within newsletters and services published by the Company, with the exception of the stocks in automatically generated reports in the Investors Alley Stock Ratings service.

Covered persons will be barred from initiating any transactions with such security immediately upon such stock being placed on the Restricted Trades List for seven full trading days after the date on which the paid subscription newsletter or service is published with content about such stock.

Covered persons must immediately disclose any personal holdings in stocks placed on the Restricted Trades List.

Covered persons cannot buy or sell shares for seven full trading days after the publication of any initial report in any paid subscription newsletter or service on a stock. As many stocks are mentioned in update issues and alerts, the buy and sell restriction applies only to the initial research to recommend a transaction with the stock as part of a paid subscription newsletter or service.

Providing advance notice of inclusion or initiation of coverage of a stock to non-employees of or contractors working on the behalf of the Company is forbidden.

The Company will make every reasonable effort to inform subscribers of paid subscription newsletters and services of any positions in stocks held by covered persons that are recommended in said paid subscription newsletters and services. In the case where it is the editor or analyst of that paid subscription newsletter or service this person will be identified as holding a position in the stock mentioned. In the case where is another covered person or persons other than the editor or analyst of said paid subscription newsletter or service such position shall be disclosed without providing personally identifiable information about that person or persons.

Billing Terms & Refund Policy

Our refund policy varies for each publication, service, and product.  Specific billing and offer terms are outlined on the original form you filled out when you became a subscriber.  Many of our subscriptions are non-refundable and others carry a cancellation fee, so please make sure you are aware of your specific policy. A chart may be viewed below detailing each product’s refund policy:

Products billed quarterly: full refund during the first 60 days  of the first billed quarter

Products billed monthly: no refund

All of the Company’s subscription products come with a refund policy in effect from the moment you purchase your subscription.

If you receive a full or partial refund for a particular publication/service, no future refunds will be issued for that publication/service at any point should you remain a subscriber or wish to resubscribe.  Subsequent subscriptions to the same product or publication are non-refundable.

We reserve the right to terminate your paid or unpaid subscriptions and access to our web sites at any time without notice.  If we terminate a paid subscription of a fixed term and provided you have not breached our Terms of Service, we will refund the unused portion of your subscription fee.

Any refund due will be returned to the original debit or credit card used for the purchase.  It may take up to 10 business days after the refund is issued for it to show up on your credit card statement.  On occasion, your issuing credit card bank, in their sole discretion, may delay the processing of refunds.

All refunds initiated by the Company, whether full or partial, shall be paid in U.S. dollars. If you reside outside the United States your card issuer may convert your refund to your local currency at whatever exchange rates it has in effect at such time. You are advised to consult your card issuer prior to initiating a refund.

Your subscription will be considered cancelled and access to your subscription and the web site will be discontinued once your subscription amount has been refunded by the Company, regardless of the actual date you receive any proceeds from the refund.

Sales/Use Tax

Investors Alley does not currently collect sales tax for subscriptions. However, due to changes in legislation, we may soon be required to charge sales tax for residents in certain states in which we do business. Such sales tax may be applied to your subscription and/or maintenance fees at any time and without notice.

Some states and local jurisdictions impose a use tax on products a consumer purchases from out-of-state vendors when the vendor has not collected the tax.  Therefore, you may be responsible for reporting and remitting your state’s use tax directly to your state’s tax agency. The specifics of this tax can vary greatly, and you are encouraged to contact your state or local tax agency or your tax advisor on your use tax obligations.

If you ever have any questions about your subscription or our terms, please email [email protected] or call 1-855-566-6100 (1-212-566-6100 if outside US/Canada) during normal business hours.
