In order to attract and retain advertisers we use the aggregated, anonymous information that we gather (as well as information from third party market researchers) to describe our services to partners and to assist our advertisers and sponsors to better understand our audience.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

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. These individuals shall be referred to as “covered persons.”
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.
When an editor or analyst has decided to begin coverage of a stock for inclusion in a paid subscription newsletter or service that stock will be placed on a Restricted Trades List which will be maintained by a designated trading compliance officer within the Company. 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.

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

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.
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.
