Private Investor (non-professional)
You agree that in entering into this Agreement you will at all times be acting as a private investor (non-professional) and not in the course of any employment, trade or profession which you may carry on.
For regulatory purposes, you are a private investor if you meet all of the following criteria for the entire term of your subscription.
- You are subscribing to the service in a personal capacity.
- You are not currently registered or qualified as a professional securities trader or investment adviser with any national or state exchange, regulatory authority, professional association or recognised professional body.
- You do not currently act in any capacity as an investment advisor, whether or not you have at some time been qualified to do so.
- You use the service solely in relation to the management of your personal funds and not as a trader or an advisor to the public or to the investment of corporate funds.
- You do not distribute, republish or otherwise provide any data from the service to any third party in any manner.
- The data change is designed to cover individuals and will be maintained in the customer’s name and not in the company name – the exception to this would be a share club operating on a non-professional basis.
You are not a private investor if you do not meet any one of the criteria outlined above.
