The Content is for educational and illustrative purposes only and does not imply a recommendation or solicitation to buy or sell a particular security or to engage in any particular investment strategy. Certain tools published on the Service may provide general information and guidance based upon your personalized input.

It is your sole responsibility to select the criteria to enter in the tools, or to choose among the pre-defined screens, and to evaluate the merits and risks associated with the use of the tools before making any investment decisions. We are not responsible for any losses that occur from such investment decisions.

Quotes and Market Data
A third party not affiliated with us may provide you access to market data and quotes to be used alongside the Service. If market data and quotes are provided to you by a third party, your use of the marked data and quotes will be governed by the terms and conditions imposed by such third party.
If we provide market data and quotes the following will apply. Any price quotes that we may provide may be delayed fifteen (15) minutes or longer, according to the rules and regulations applicable to exchanges and quote providers. We reserve the right to limit the number of free real-time quotes. We do not make any representations, warranties or other guarantees as to the accuracy or timeliness of any price quotes.
We may provide you information regarding the value of your share positions based on the share price at the close of the latest market day. The data is for informational purposes only and does not reflect the price you may receive if you sell your shares. You also acknowledge that the quotes, and information provided based on quotes, are obtained from sources that we believe to be reliable, but we do not guarantee the accuracy and completeness of such quotes or information. You waive any claim that you might have against us or the quote provider related to the quotes or the quote-based information on the Service.
You represent and agree that the following statements are and will continue to be true for so long as you have access to the Service: (a) You will not use any information or market data provided by a national securities exchange or association in connection with any professional or commercial activities, and you agree to notify us if you intend to do so and to pay any additional charges; (b) you will not use the Service in conjunction with any business as a broker-dealer, investment advisor, futures commission merchant, commodities introducing broker, commodity trading advisor, member of a securities exchange or association or futures contract market, or an owner, partner or associated person of any of the foregoing; and (c) if you are employed by a bank or an insurance company or an affiliate of either you will not perform functions related to securities or commodity futures trading activity, except with respect to your account(s) with us.
We round the amount of fractional shares you can purchase and own in your account down to the nearest four decimal places which may affect your ability to be credited for cash dividends, stock dividends and stock splits. Fractional shares are not transferable. You will not have voting rights for the fraction of a share owned. If you close your account or transfer your account to another firm, the fractional share will need to be liquidated, resulting in potential commission charges which may match or exceed the value of the fractional share if less than our minimum commission.
Platform Availability Complaint Reporting
We will make best efforts that the Service is available during 9:30am EST – 4:00pm EST on any Monday through Friday (New York time), excluding federal holidays in the United States and any day on which banking institutions and stock market exchanges in the United States are required by law or other government action to close. However, it is understood and agreed that the Service utilizes multiple third-party resources and API’s and functionality is dependent on the operation of those services.
We encourage you to provide us feedback from time to time regarding the Service. In the event of any feedback or complaint received, we reserve the right to forward such communications to the appropriate party in order to address the communication, including, without limit, the Broker. We reserve the right to contact You about any communication received.
Purchases Timing & Batch Trading
You understand that your orders are not placed on a real-time basis, but are batched with other orders placed that day. Batch Trading is a process in which trade orders are collected and then executed all at the same time. We process orders during one window each business day the U.S. stock exchange markets are open – 10:00am ET. Orders are not processed in real time. Orders are aggregated with other buy and sell orders and processed at the same time in the next available window.
Example: A customer places an order to buy or sell a stock at 10:30am ET. The order will be processed the next business day at 10:00am ET.
Note: orders placed after the trade window at 10:00am ET will be processed in the window the next day at 10:00am ET. Orders placed after 10:00am ET Friday will be processed Monday at 10:00am ET.
Orders will be executed at the best available price in accordance with NBBO (National Best Bid or Offer) standards. This price may be higher or lower from the time you placed your order. Batch Trading may increase investment risk in a volatile market as the price at the time you placed your order may differ significantly from the execution price. Because we use batch trading, our platform may not be appropriate for short-term investors who wish to employ market-timing strategies.

You must pay a service fee determined by us for the delivery of Communications that we would otherwise deliver electronically.
We reserve the right to provide Communications to you in paper form in our discretion even if you have given us consent to provide them electronically. For example, but without limitation, we may do this if we have a system outage, if we suspect fraud or if for any reason your designated email address or mobile phone does not accept emails or texts, respectively, from us.
Without obligating us to do so, you authorize us to monitor, record or maintain archival copies of electronic, written or oral Communications with you or anyone purporting to act on your behalf. All communications sent to and from us are subject to archival, monitoring, review by and disclosure to someone other than the recipient, such as our compliance administrators and regulatory bodies.
You are responsible for monitoring your Communications, including making sure that you are receiving any expected Communications. You must review these and other communications to ensure that information about your account is accurate. You must read and understand the communications and notifications that you receive from us.
