LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Under no circumstances shall StockCharts.com, its officers, directors, agents, third-party providers, affiliates, or licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages (including without limitation, attorneys' fees), or any loss of profits or revenues or loss of data, use, good-will, business opportunity, or other intangible losses, whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortious action, that result from the use of, or the inability to use, any materials available on the Site, even if StockCharts.com has been advised of such damages. If you are dissatisfied with any StockCharts.com Information or other materials, or with any of the terms and conditions contained in the Site, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using StockCharts.com.

The limitations of this subsection shall apply to any theory of liability, whether based on warranty, contract, statute, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, and whether or not StockCharts.com has been informed of the possibility of any such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. However, because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
MEMBERSHIP. StockCharts.com offers an online membership service which is an expanded suite of online tools and services beyond what is currently offered to all visitors of our website. By completing the registration process, paying all required membership fees, or signing up for a free trial, and using your membership (paid or by free trial), you are indicating that you agree to also be bound by all of the additional terms in the following two sections of this agreement.
REGISTRATION, ACCESS, AND SECURITY. Only you can use your account, and no other individual may access your account using the same user ID or password, unless agreed otherwise by StockCharts.com.
As part of the registration process, you will be automatically assigned a password and a user ID. You will be required to give us certain registration information, all of which must be accurate and updated. Failure to comply with the foregoing shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of your account. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password.
You shall notify StockCharts.com, at firstname.lastname@example.org, of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password.
You are solely and fully responsible for all usage or activity on your account, including use of the account by any third party authorized by you to use your user ID and password. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity may be grounds for termination of your account, at StockCharts.com's sole discretion, and StockCharts.com may refer you to appropriate law enforcement agencies.
PAYMENTS AND TERMINATION/CANCELLATION OF SERVICE. You can always find the current Membership Fees and charges posted in the StockCharts.com Subscription Services section of our website. All fees are due in advance. Members can renew their account at any time using our online payment system.
New members are eligible for a 1-month free trial of our service. If you are not satisfied with our service during that trial period, simply visit the “Your Account” page and click the “Cancel Your Account” button on that page. If you cancel within the 1-month trial period, your credit card will not be charged. Note that if you cancel your membership during the free trial period, you will not be able to sign up for another free trial for one full year from the date of cancellation. You will be able to sign up as a regular paying member during that time.
After the 1-month trial period is over and we have charged your credit card, we will be unable to provide a refund for that month if you cancel your account.
All other members are subject to the following payment terms: Month-to-month members will be automatically renewed each month, for an additional month of service; Month-to-month members are not eligible for refunds; Annual members will be automatically renewed each year, for an additional year of service; Annual members may be eligible for refunds of full unused months upon cancellation; All Data Plans are billed monthly and all Data Plan fees are non-refundable.
You may cancel your membership by disabling the automatic renewal feature on the ”Your Account” page at any time. If the automatic renewal feature is turned off as of the expiration date, your account will be suspended on the expiration date. You will still have access to StockCharts.com's free services. Any data stored on StockCharts.com's servers as part of your account may be lost.
CHANGES TO CONTENT & AVAILABILITY OF SERVICE. We may make improvements and/or changes to the Content and/or the Site at any time in our sole discretion. And while it is unlikely, we may also choose to cease publication at any time in our sole discretion. Periodic updates to the Site are not guaranteed and we cannot guarantee that the Site will be up or fully operational at all times.
We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.
ENDING THESE TERMS. The Terms will continue to apply until they are terminated by either you or StockCharts.com in accordance with this section. You may end your legal agreement with StockCharts.com at any time for any reason by deactivating your account and discontinuing your use of the Site. You do not need to specifically inform StockCharts.com if you stop using the Site. We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Site at any time for any reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i) you have violated these Terms; (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us; or (iii) our provision of the Site to you is no longer commercially viable. Nothing in this section shall affect StockCharts.com's rights to change, limit or stop the provision of the Site without prior notice.
INDEMNIFICATION. You hereby indemnify, defend and hold harmless StockCharts.com and all officers, directors, owners, agents, information third-party providers, affiliates, licensors and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all liability and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim arising out of any breach by you or any user of your account of this Agreement or the foregoing representations, warranties and covenants. You shall cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any such claim. StockCharts.com reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you.
GENERAL. This agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Washington, U.S.A. You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in King County, Washington, U.S.A. in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of this StockCharts.com website. Use of this StockCharts.com website is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this paragraph. However, if you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Site in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Washington (excluding choice of law).
WAIVER. StockChart.com's failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.
SEVERABILITY. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This agreement, in concert with the Privacy Statement, constitutes the entire agreement between you and StockCharts.com with respect to the Site. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and StockCharts.com with respect to the Site.
