5. No Reliance; No Offer or Advice.

FRA makes no representation or warranty that the information on the Service is accurate, reliable, up-to-date or complete. Neither FRA nor any third party can guarantee the accuracy of the information.  The Service is provided for informational purposes only and does not constitute and should not be construed as a solicitation or offer, endorsement, or recommendation to acquire or dispose of any investment or to engage in any other transaction whatsoever.  Nothing in the Service constitutes, nor should it be construed as, investment, legal, tax or other advice of any nature whatsoever and it should not be relied on in making an investment or other decision. You should obtain relevant and specific independent professional advice before making any investment or other decision.  You hereby agree that you will not hold FRA responsible at law or in equity for any decisions of whatever nature you make or refrain from making in connection with your use of the Service.  You further specifically acknowledge and agree that:

(a) FRA is a publishing company dedicated to providing innovative research for extraordinary times and fintech development. FRA is NOT a United States Securities Dealer or Broker, or U.S. Investment Adviser, nor a registered trader, dealer, or broker of ANY jurisdiction and or country. Further, FRA’s principal, Keith Fitz-Gerald, is an independent market researcher, analyst and subject matter expert. His opinions are his own and he does not accept compensation in any form from any company or companies he reviews.

(b) All investing has inherent risks, and it is impossible to guarantee future results or profits. You understand and agree that past performance does not assure future results and that you can lose some or all your money in any investment. You understand and agree that the content does not constitute a specific recommendation of any particular investment, security, portfolio, transaction, or strategy, nor that any specific course of action is suitable for any specific person, including you.

(c) FRA’s products and services are general in nature and are not tailored to individual financial circumstances, trading background, or experience.  Neither FRA nor any of its staff, analysts or other personnel will provide you any personalized investment advice, and you therefore agree that you shall not solicit or attempt to obtain any such advice from FRA, or from any of its staff, analysts or other personnel.

(d) While FRA’s staff and/or personnel may own positions in certain securities mentioned in or on the Service, such ownership does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of any such securities.  You are advised to consult qualified investment and financial professionals before making any financial, investment, or trading decisions. It is your money and your responsibility.

(e) FRA uses various methods to evaluate investments and trading opportunities which may, at times, produce contradictory recommendations with respect to the same securities. When evaluating the results of prior recommendations or performance rankings or scoring, you should also consider that FRA may modify the methods it uses to evaluate investment opportunities from time to time. For this and for many other reasons, the performance of past recommendations or investments is not a guarantee of future results or that you will obtain similar results.

6. Disclaimer of CFTC Rule 4.41.  

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under or overcompensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown in any hypothetical or simulated trading program.

7. Intellectual Property Rights.

(a) FRA Content.  The Service and all data, products, content, features and functionality (including but not limited to, all information, user interfaces, software, text, displays, images, and the design, selection and arrangement thereof) (“FRA Content”) thereof, are owned by FRA, its licensors or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws.

22. Agreement; Miscellaneous.

These Terms of Use, which incorporate by reference any: (i) additional terms on the Service or otherwise provided by us for particular activities; and (ii) disclosures provided by us and consents provided by you on the Service, constitute the entire agreement between us and neither party has relied on any representations made by the other that are not expressly set forth in these Terms of Use. If any part of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then that part will be deemed superseded by an enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original and honors the allocation of risks in these Terms of Use and the remainder of these Terms of Use will continue in effect. Our failure to act with respect to a breach does not waive our right to act as to subsequent or similar breaches. Time is of the essence in connection with your performance under these Terms of Use. Except as set forth in Sections 11 and 19 above, there are no third-party beneficiaries of any part of these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use are personal to you, and are not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with FRA’s prior written consent, which FRA may withhold for any reason or no reason. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of these Terms of Use and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under these Terms of Use, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.

23. No Class Actions.

Each party expressly waives their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND FRA AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.      

24. Waiver of Jury Trial.


EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION, PROCEEDING, CAUSE OF ACTION OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE, OR THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THESE TERMS OF USE.
