Volatility reserves the right to materially change or discontinue Services designated in Beta stage at any time and without notice to You. Access or use of Services identified as not generally available for commercial use, such as “Beta” or “Pre-Release” (“Beta Product”), is restricted to Your internal performance evaluation of the Beta Product. Beta Services are for evaluation purposes and not for production use, are not supported, and may be subject to additional terms. Your access to the Beta Product may be interrupted during maintenance periods. Volatility is not obligated to finally release any version of the Beta Product. You will report to Volatility unusual, unplanned, or out of the ordinary events observed in the Beta Product. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE BETA PRODUCTS MAY CONTAIN BUGS, ERRORS AND DEFECTS AND ARE NOT EXPECTED TO FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. VOLATILITY WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY HARM OR DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH A BETA PRODUCT.
If You have signed up for an evaluation or trial of the Services (“Evaluation”), then the provisions of this Section shall apply and shall supersede any other conflicting term of this Agreement. Your use of the evaluation is limited to a maximum of five (5) days unless otherwise specified during sign-up or agreed to in writing by Volatility. An individual, household, company, or any entity is limited to one evaluation. You acknowledge that the evaluation may contain errors or other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss. Consequently, Evaluation services are provided to You solely on an "AS-IS" basis, and Volatility disclaims any warranty or liability obligations to You of any kind. You are not eligible for any support for evaluation Services. WHERE LEGAL LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED, BUT MAY BE LIMITED, VOLATILITY'S LIABILITY AND THAT OF ITS SUPPLIERS AND AUTHORIZED PARTNERS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE SUM OF ONE HUNDRED ($100.00) DOLLARS (OR THE THEN CURRENT VALUE IN THE RELEVANT LOCAL CURRENCY) IN TOTAL.
A. You are responsible for all activity occurring under Your Services and accounts. You will provide Volatility with all information and assistance required to supply the Services or enable Your use of the same. You will immediately notify Volatility upon becoming aware of any: (i) unauthorized account use or other suspected security breach; (ii) unauthorized use, copying or distribution of the Services, accompanying documentation or Your or Service Data; (iii) unusual performance of the Service observed by You; and (iv) learning that multiple individuals are using a single user account.

You have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, and appropriateness of all Your Data. The Services rely on Your Data as supplied by You, as well as the servers and network used by You, and Volatility is not liable for the content of Your Data or Your servers and other equipment and personal property. Volatility does not assume any duty or obligation to correct or modify Your Data, servers, equipment, or personal property.

D. You agree that Volatility may rely on all information provided to Volatility by You from the designated e-mail addresses. Volatility may provide all notices, statements, and other communications arising under this Agreement to You through either e-mail, posting on the Services or other electronic transmission.
Volatility is responsible for providing the Services in substantial conformance with this Agreement and the Order Form.
A. Term of Agreement. Unless earlier terminated pursuant to Sections 7 (Term and Termination) or 13C (Limitation of Remedy). This Agreement commences on the date You first accept it or first access or use any Volatility Services and continues until all rights to use the Services hereunder have expired or have been terminated.
B. Term of Purchased Subscriptions. The term of each subscription shall be as specified in the applicable Order Form. Subscriptions will automatically renew for additional periods equal to their initial period, unless either party gives the other notice of non-renewal. Non-Monthly Subscribers must provide notice of non-renewal at least fifteen (15) days before the end of the relevant subscription term. The pricing during any automatic renewal term will be the same as that during the immediately prior term unless Volatility has given Subscriber written notice of a pricing increase at least twenty (20) days before the end of that prior term, in which case the pricing increase will be effective upon renewal and thereafter.
a. For Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement for cause (i) upon 30 days’ written notice to the other party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, (ii) if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or (iii) You make an unauthorized assignment of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, You agree that Volatility has no obligation to retain Your Data, which may be irretrievably deleted. You are solely responsible for retrieving Your Data in Your account.
b. For Convenience. Either party may terminate this Agreement, for any reason or for no reason, upon written notice to the other party.
D. Refund or Payment upon Termination.
a. For Cause. If this Agreement is terminated by You in accordance with Section 7.C.a., Volatility will refund You any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms after the effective date of termination. If this Agreement is terminated by Volatility in accordance with Section 7.C.a, You will pay any unpaid fees covering the term of all Order Forms. In no event will termination relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees payable to Volatility for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
b. For Convenience. If this Agreement is terminated by You in in accordance with Section 7.C.b., then You shall not be entitled to any refund and shall be liable for any unpaid fees for the term.
E. Effect of Termination / Data Deletion. On the termination of this Agreement for any reason: (A) all rights granted to You under this Agreement, including Your ability to access any data stored in the Services, will immediately terminate; and (B) You must promptly discontinue all use of the Services and delete or destroy any Volatility Confidential Information. Upon termination of the Agreement, Volatility will have no obligation to maintain or provide Your Data, and may thereafter delete or destroy all copies of Your Data in Volatility’s systems or otherwise in its possession or control, unless legally prohibited. Termination of the Agreement will not entitle You to any refunds, credits, or exchanges.
A. Fees. You will pay all fees specified in Order Forms. Except as otherwise specified herein or in an Order Form, (i) fees are based on Services purchased regardless of actual usage, (ii) payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable unless otherwise stated, (iii) quantities purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term, and (iv) additional fees may be due based off actual usage, for example for extra backtesting or charting requests.
B. Invoicing and Payment. You will provide Volatility with valid and updated credit card information, or with a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to Volatility. If You provide credit card information to Volatility, You authorize Volatility to charge such credit card for all Services listed in the Order Form for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) as set forth in Section 7B (Term of Purchased Subscriptions). Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form. If the Order Form specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card, Volatility will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, invoiced charges are due net 30 days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Volatility and notifying Volatility of any changes to such information.
C. Overdue Charges. If any invoiced amount is not received by Volatility by the due date, then without limiting any rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) Volatility may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 8B (Invoicing and Payment).
D. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owed by You under this or any other agreement for Services is 10 or more days overdue, Volatility may, without limiting any other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend the Services to You until such amounts are paid in full.
E. Payment Disputes. Volatility will not exercise its rights under Section 8C (Overdue Charges) or 8D (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
F. Taxes. Volatility’s fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with Your purchases hereunder. If Volatility has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 8F, Volatility will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Volatility with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, Volatility is solely responsible for taxes assessable against Volatility based on Volatility’s income, property and employees.
Volatility may suspend the Services: (a) if Volatility deems it necessary to prevent or terminate any Prohibited Use; or (b) upon notice to You if: (i) You commit a material breach of this Agreement; or (ii) if Volatility receives credible notice from a third party or agency that You are in material breach of the Agreement. Suspension of Services shall be without prejudice to any rights or liabilities accruing prior to or during the suspension, including Your obligation to pay fees.
Volatility may temporarily suspend the Services for maintenance purposes. Volatility will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any such disruption of Services.
“Confidential Information” means any business materials, data, or information of a party to this Agreement that is disclosed to the other, except for information that is publicly available or later becomes publicly available other than through breach of this Agreement. You acknowledge that Volatility's pricing, services access codes and Intellectual Property are Volatility’s Confidential Information. The party receiving Confidential Information (“Receiving Party”) will exercise the same degree of care and protection for the Confidential Information of the party that has disclosed Confidential Information (“Disclosing Party”) that it exercises with its own Confidential Information but no less than a reasonable degree of care. The Receiving Party may not directly or indirectly disclose, copy, distribute, republish, sell, license or otherwise allow any third party access to such Confidential Information. The Parties agree to maintain the confidentiality as described herein even after the termination of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the above, either party may disclose Confidential Information: (1) to its employees, contractors or agents who have a need to know in order to provide and improve the Services and are subject to substantially similar obligations of confidentiality; and (2) if required by law (including a court order or subpoena), provided, the Receiving Party, where lawfully permitted, promptly notifies the Disclosing Party in time to review and challenge the potential disclosure. In the event of any termination or expiration of this Agreement, each party will either return or, at the Disclosing Party’s request, destroy the Confidential Information of the other party; provided however, that Volatility may retain copies of Your Confidential Information for routine backup and archival purposes.
The Services (including any associated, documentation, hardware, websites, passwords, components and tools) (“Volatility Property”) are the sole and exclusive property of Volatility or its licensors, who retain sole ownership of all right, title and interest in Volatility Property, as well as any derivative works thereof. These ownership rights include copyrights, patent rights, trademark and service mark rights, trade secret rights, moral rights, and all other intellectual property and proprietary rights ("Intellectual Property"). You agree, on behalf of You and Your Users, that You will take no action inconsistent with Volatility’s Intellectual Property rights. To the extent You provide comments, suggestions or other feedback directly on and directly related to the Services ("Feedback"), You hereby grant to Volatility a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, such Feedback to incorporate or otherwise utilize Feedback as provided in Volatility’s Services or future products.
A. Representations. Each party represents that it has validly entered into this Agreement and has the legal power to do so.
B. LIMITED WARRANTY. Volatility warrants that (a) this Agreement, the Order Forms and the Documentation accurately describe the applicable administrative, physical, and technical specifications of their Services; and (b) the Services will substantially conform with this Agreement. Volatility shall only provide the foregoing warranty where You have an active subscription to the Services. There shall be no other warranty.
C. LIMITATION OF REMEDY. The sole and exclusive remedy for any claim for breach of warranty under this Agreement is for Volatility to modify the Services to conform with the Documentation. If Volatility is unable to do so, Volatility may, in its own discretion: (1) allow Monthly Subscribers to terminate the Agreement; or (2) for Non-Monthly Subscribers, provide a credit that extend the term of the Subscriber’s Service Agreement by thirty (30) days upon renewal of the annual Agreement.
D. Disclaimer Regarding Content. The Services may contain independent third party information and rely on them to perform certain functionality. Volatility makes no warranty as to the accuracy of any such third party information. Volatility cannot and does not represent or guarantee that any of the information available through the Services or on Volatility is accurate, reliable, current, complete or appropriate for your needs. Due to various factors — including the inherent possibility of human and mechanical error — the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, results obtained from use, and correct sequencing of information available through the Services and website are not and cannot be guaranteed by Volatility. Volatility is not a financial advisor and does not represent You or advise You in any respect. The material presented is for informational purposes only and is not an endorsement of any trading strategy or an offer to sell an investment. Nothing in this material constitutes investment advice or investment research, and it is important that You do not rely upon its content to make investment decisions. Neither Volatility nor its affiliates make any guarantee or warranty as to the reliability, accuracy, or completeness of the material and shall not be liable to You, or any user, or anyone else for any damage or loss (including without limit loss of profits) whether direct, indirect, or consequential arising out of or in connection with the material.
E. Disclaimer Regarding Investment Decisions and Trading. Decisions to buy, sell, hold or trade in securities, commodities and other investments involve risk and are best made based on the advice of qualified financial professionals. Any trading in securities or other investments involves a risk of substantial losses. The practice of “Day Trading” involves particularly high risks and can cause you to lose substantial sums of money. Before undertaking any trading program, You should consult a qualified financial professional. Please consider carefully whether such trading is suitable for You in light of Your financial condition and ability to bear financial risks. Under no circumstances shall We be liable for any loss or damage You or anyone else incurs as a result of any trading or investment activity that You or anyone else engages in based on any information or material You receive through Volatility or our Services.
F. Disclaimer Regarding Backtesting, Historical Pricing and Analysis, and Hypothetical Performance Results (collectively, “Historical Analysis”). Historical Analysis has many inherent limitations, some of which are mentioned below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between Historical Analysis and actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of Historical Analysis is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading sometimes involved in Historical Analysis does not involve financial risk and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of the trading losses are material points, which can also adversely affect trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the market in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of Historical Analysis and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results. Past performance and Historical Analysis are not indicative of future results.
G. DISCLAIMER. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY, ANY USE BY YOU AND YOUR USERS OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR AND THEIR OWN RISK. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. VOLATILITY AND ITS LICENSORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, CONFORMITY TO ANY REPRESENTATION OR DESCRIPTION, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, AND OWNERSHIP.

BETA AND EVALUATION SERVICES ARE ALSO PROVIDED “AS IS,” EXCLUSIVE OF ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER. EACH PARTY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS FOR ANY HARM OR DAMAGES CAUSED BY ANY THIRD-PARTY INCLUDING HOSTING PROVIDERS.
THE SERVICES MAY CONTAIN INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS OR INFORMATION (INCLUDING MARKET DATA, PRICING OF OPTIONS, DERIVATIVES, STOCKS, AND ANY FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS) AND RELY UPON THEM TO PERFORM CERTAIN FUNCTIONALITY. VOLATILITY MAKES NO WARRANTY AS TO THE ACCURACY OF ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS OR INFORMATION.
SERVICES AND MARKET DATA (INCLUDING PRICING OF OPTIONS, DERIVATIVES STOCKS, AND ANY FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS) MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS, DELAY AND OTHER PROBLEMS SUCH AS THOSE INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS. VOLATILITY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAYS, DELIVERY FAILURES OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM SUCH PROBLEMS.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure. Volatility is not responsible for any interception or interruption of any communications through the Internet or networks or systems outside Volatility’s control. You are responsible for maintaining the security of Your networks, servers, applications, and access codes.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, VOLATILITY'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER FOR BREACH OR IN TORT, IS LIMITED: (1) FOR MONTHLY SUBSCRIBERS, TO THE FEES PAID UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE ONE MONTH IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY; AND (2) FOR NON-MONTHLY SUBSCRIBERS, TO THE FEES PAID UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR A PERIOD OF TIME EQUAL TO A QUARTER OF THE CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. IN NO EVENT WILL VOLATILITY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING DAMAGES ARISING FROM LOSS, DELAYED USE OF DATA, OR DELAYED DATA; LOST PROFITS, SAVINGS OR REVENUE; DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT; LOSS OF OR DAMAGE TO RECORDS OR DATA; RE-PROCUREMENT COSTS; AND THIRD PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU) HOWEVER CAUSED AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF VOLATILITY HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF ANY EXCLUSIVE REMEDY PROVIDED FOR HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Volatility harmless from all claims, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to any: (i) Your, Subscriber’s, or User’s engagement in a Prohibited Use; (ii) Your Data passing to or from You through the Services or Volatility's network; (iii) taxes arising from the Services whether now in effect or imposed in the future (excluding taxes based on Volatility's income); (iv) failure by You to obtain all necessary consents related to Your Data; (v) claims by third parties arising from Your use of the Services; (vi) any and all acts or omissions by You; and (vii) any reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees required for Volatility to respond to a subpoena, court order or other official government inquiry regarding Your Data or Your use of the Services.
Any waiver of rights under this Agreement must be in writing. Failure to exercise or enforce any right under this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of that Party’s right nor bar the exercise or enforcement of it at any time thereafter.
