You may use the Service when and as available.

We further reserve the right to change, modify, eliminate and/or restrict or block access to all or any part of the Service, including any features or content displayed or made available through the Service, from time to time with or without notice to you, in our discretion. We will not be liable to you if for any reason all or any part of the Service is unavailable at any time for any period.

(b) You may browse certain pages of the Service without first registering as a user (a “User ”). However, for complete access to the Service, including without limitation, the One Bar Ahead Product, you must register as a User. To register as a User, click. It is a condition of your use of the Service that all the information you provide as part of registering as a User or in connection with your use of the Service is accurate, current and complete.
(c) If you choose, or are provided with, a username, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and you agree not to provide any other person with access to the Service or portions of it using your username, password or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your User account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your User account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. We have the right to disable any user name, password or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason.
You agree that all personal information you provide to register with the Service or otherwise, including but not limited to through the use of any interactive features on the Service, is governed by our Privacy Notice, and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your personal information consistent with our Privacy Notice.
5. No Reliance; No Offer or Advice.
KFGR makes no representation or warranty that the information on the Service is accurate, reliable, up-to-date or complete. Neither KFGR 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 KFGR 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) KFGR is a publishing company dedicated to providing innovative research for extraordinary times and fintech development. KFGR 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, KFGR'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) KFGR's products and services are general in nature and are not tailored to individual financial circumstances, trading background, or experience. Neither KFGR 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 KFGR, or from any of its staff, analysts or other personnel.
(d) While KFGR'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) KFGR 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 KFGR 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.
(b) Your Content.
(4) You are responsible for keeping appropriate copies and records of Your Content. KFGR has no obligation to back up or maintain Your Content, and KFGR takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for Your Content, including without limitation any loss or damage thereto.
(c) Systems Data.
Any comments, feedback, suggestions, or ideas ( “Feedback ”) you provide through the Service may be used by KFGR. While you may continue to own all such the Feedback, you hereby grant to KFGR a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, reproduce, disclose, sublicense, distribute, modify and otherwise exploit such Feedback.
