2. The services
The Services include our written and digital publications and materials, websites (including, but not limited to, https://www.behindthemarkets.com/), mobile applications and all other online and other platforms (collectively, the “Platforms”), all Content (defined below) displayed on or delivered through the Platforms, and memberships (collectively, the “Services”). “Content” means data, information, research, e-letters, newsletters, digests, articles and blogs, news aggregate services, emails, images, graphs, videos, podcasts, webinars, conferences, books, audio (including, but not limited to, access to conference calls), software, analytic tools, and any visual, audial or digital content made available on or through a Platform. The Services include certain Services provided free of charge (“Free Services”) as well as Services for which you must pay a one-time fee, subscription fee, maintenance fee or other fee in order to have access, including, but not limited to, premium Content and memberships (collectively “Premium Services”). The terms of this Agreement apply to both Free Services and Premium Services (except where indicated below that the relevant terms apply only to a designated Premium Service). For the avoidance of doubt, this Agreement applies to Services that are made available on a Platform that may be accessed only by a User to whom we have issued Credentials (defined below), as well as those Services made available by email, through Platforms that do not require Credentials, or through other processes.
This Agreement applies to all Services, whether purchased or used separately, or as part of a membership package, or any solution or bundled package of Services. If you purchase or use Services that are sold or otherwise provided together as a solution or bundled package (as opposed to your purchasing or using Services separately), termination of any part of the Services will result in the termination of all Services provided as part of the solution or bundled package. See the Section 12 for additional details on this subject.
3. DISCLAIMERS CONCERNING THE CONTENT WE PROVIDE
You acknowledge and agree to the following:
(i) BEHIND THE MARKETS is a publisher of financial information, not an investment adviser. We rely upon the “publisher’s exclusion” from the definition of investment adviser under Section 202(a)(11)(D) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and corresponding state securities laws. We do not provide personalized or individualized investment advice or execute any trades on your behalf. Any information provided as part of the Services is impersonal and not specific to any person’s investment needs. You acknowledge and agree that no Content published or otherwise provided as part of any Service constitutes a personalized recommendation or advice regarding the suitability of, or advisability of investing in, purchasing or selling any particular investment, security, portfolio, commodity, transaction or investment strategy. To the extent that any of the Content may be deemed to be investment advice or recommendations in connection with a particular security, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.
Investing has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk. You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to engage in investing practices. Don’t trade with money you can’t afford to lose. Behind the Markets does not represent that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those that may be discussed or highlighted on our Website or while using our Services. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results. All trades, patterns, charts, systems, etc., that may be discussed or highlighted on the Website while using our Services are for illustrative purposes only and not to be construed as specific advisory recommendations. Information provided to you while using our Services is intended for informational purposes only;
(ii) None of our personnel, including, but not limited to, editorial staff, employees or independent contractors (collectively, “Our Representatives”), will provide you with personalized advice regarding the value or suitability of, or advisability of investing in, purchasing or selling, any particular investment, security, portfolio, commodity, transaction, investment strategy or any other matter, and you further agree not to request or contact us for such advice;
(iii) From time to time the Services provide the opinion and commentary of Our Representatives, as well as well as opinion and commentary of third parties that are not controlled by Behind the Markets, including, but not limited to, interviewees, guests, analysts and other third-party Content providers (collectively, “Outside Contributors”), as well as opinions and commentary provided in the products and services of our affiliates. The Services may contain opinions and commentary with regard to investments that may differ from opinions and commentary provided by and in other Services, Outside Contributors and/or our affiliates. The Services and/or Content are not to be used or construed as a recommendation or offer to buy or sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy or sell, any security, company, financial product or instrument, or to participate in any particular investment strategy, by any of the Behind the Market’s Entities (defined below) or any third party. The Services and all Content are for informational purposes only and are not intended to provide you with tax, legal, investment or accounting advice. None of Behind the Market’s Entities shall be liable for any investment decisions based upon or results obtained from the Services and/or Content. Trading in investments involves risk and volatility, and any of the investments discussed in the Services may lose their value after purchase. You should consult a registered investment advisor, attorney, or tax professional regarding your particular financial situation, investing strategies, or specific legal or tax situation. Past investment results are not necessarily indicative of future performance;
(iv) Although we have certain trading restrictions for Our Representatives relating to investments or securities that are recommended in the Services, from time to time, one or more Outside Contributors or their affiliates may have a position in the investment or securities written about in the Services. In cases where the position is held at the time of publication, Outside Contributors may make a related disclosure; however, Behind the Markets has no duty or obligation to investigate or determine whether Outside Contributors or their affiliates hold a position in an investment or security written about in the Services or to ensure that Outside Contributors make any such disclosure. In addition, Outside Contributors may be subject to certain restrictions on trading for their own account. In addition, certain of Our Representatives and other persons from our affiliates may, from time to time, have positions in, or buy or sell, the investments, securities or derivatives thereof that are referenced in the Content and may take positions inconsistent with the views expressed therein;
(v) Where Services and/or Content provided by Behind the Markets consists of pricing or performance data, such data has been obtained from third-party sources reasonably believed to be reliable. However, the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of any such data or data calculations are not guaranteed by the Third-Party Providers (defined below) of such data or by Behind the Markets, or any other third party. You acknowledge and agree that we do not have control over the quality, accuracy, completeness, veracity or legality of Content provided by Third-Party Providers and Outside Contributors;
(vi) From time to time, reference may be made in our marketing materials to prior articles and opinions we have published. These references may be selective, may reference only a portion of an article or recommendation, and may not be current. As markets change continuously, previously published information and data may not be current and should not be relied upon;
(vii) When U.S., international, cryptocurrency and/or other similar exchanges are open, any quotes that we may provide through our Platforms are delayed (other than those obtained through any real-time quote services we make available to users of certain Services). When such exchanges are not open, quotes are only current as of the close of the last day of trading. You acknowledge and agree that neither Behind the Markets nor any Third-Party Provider of these quotes or related data shall be liable to you or any third party for any damage or loss resulting from your reliance or trading on the quotes, information or data contained or referenced in the Content or Services.
(viii) To the extent any of the Services involve a model portfolio of investments, such portfolio provides investment ideas and/or provides information regarding investments and is chosen by Our Representatives or Outside Contributors in accordance with our or their stated investment strategy and is for informational purposes only. Your actual results may differ from results reported for the portfolio for many reasons, including, but not limited to, trading commissions or pricing differences due to timing of a purchase or sale of an investment in the portfolio; and
(ix) The information, research and opinions and other Content that Behind the Markets provides as part of the Services are obtained or derived from sources believed to be reliable, but we cannot guarantee their accuracy and completeness, nor the opinions based thereon. You should not rely solely upon such information, research and opinions for purposes of transacting securities or other investments, and you are encouraged to conduct your own research and due diligence, and to seek the advice of a qualified investment professional before you make any investment. None of the information provided as part of our Services constitutes, or is intended to constitute, a recommendation by us of any particular security or other investment or trading strategy or a determination by us that any security or other investment or trading strategy is suitable for any specific person. Investing in securities or other investments, including those chosen in any of Behind the Market’s model portfolio products or in any of the other Services, is speculative in nature and involves substantial risk of loss of the money invested.
We reserve the right to change, modify or discontinue any Content or any portion or feature of the Services. Such changes may include, but are not limited to, adding or removing particular Outside Contributors or Our Representatives, ceasing to provide access to a Service (and/or providing an alternative Service to you as a replacement), or changing the terms of engagement for a Service. We may make these changes or modifications at our sole discretion, either temporarily or permanently, at any time or from time to time, with or without notice to you. You agree that Behind the Markets shall not be liable to you or any third party for any such change or modification of the Content and/or Services, any suspension or discontinuance of your access to our Services, and that your continued use of the changed or modified Content and/or Services, and/or continued access to the changed or modified Content and/or Services, constitutes your acceptance of any such changes or modifications.
Certain Content or other features of the Services may also have their own specific terms and conditions that you agree to when you sign up for, or use, that particular product, function, or service (“Specific Terms of Service”). Specific Terms of Services may be described in an Annex to this Agreement and/or may be provided to you through the Services at the time you elect to sign up for, or use, that particular Service. Each Specific Terms of Service supplements and is made part of this Agreement, but if any term of this Agreement expressly conflicts with any term of a Specific Terms of Service, the conflicting term in the Specific Terms of Service will control but only with respect to the applicable Service. All other terms and conditions in both this Agreement and the Specific Terms of Service will remain in force.
