I. Nature of Information Provided


1. This website is for informational purposes only. Subscribing gives you access to the MADSCAN software, which will generate and provide alerts for you based on user selections you enter. None of the information contained on this website constitutes a solicitation, offer, opinion or recommendation by Madscan, LLC (hereinafter “MAD”), or any of its affiliates, principals, members, directors, officers, employees, agents, and contractors (hereinafter "MAD Family") or by third-parties whose market information or news content is available through the MADSCAN software or based on whose market information or news content alerts are generated, to buy or sell any securities or other financial instruments or to provide legal, tax, accounting or investment advice or services regarding the suitability or profitability of any security or investment. Please determine whether a stock, bond, security, financial instrument or commodity, or buying, selling or trading strategy is right for you, the MADSCAN software subscriber or MADSCAN website user (hereinafter “you”), your objectives and aims, and your risk tolerance.


2. MADSCAN software generates alerts based on various types of information, including data concerning financial and other markets, securities, news, information and commentary, and other content, advertising, or other materials, much of which is supplied by third-parties unaffiliated with MAD. MAD takes steps to ensure that this information and content comes from reputable sources. However, MAD does not guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, completeness or usefulness of this information, news or content, and no warranty is made here by the third-parties about the accuracy, timeliness, completeness or usefulness of this information, news or content. MAD and the MAD Family are not responsible or liable for the accuracy, timeliness, completeness or usefulness any information, news or content provided. Further, MAD and the MAD Family shall not be responsible for, and make no warranties regarding, the access, speed, or availability of Internet or network services or any other service required for electronic communication to retrieve market data, news or other information and to provide such market data, news or other information to subscribers or users or to generate or provide alerts to subscribers or users.


3. Signals, filters, or other search terms provided by the MADSCAN software used to generate alerts are intended to be used carefully after reading the instructions therefor. The alerts generated and provided to you are intended as only informational in nature. MAD does not endorse any buying, selling or trading based on alerts generated and provided to you. Further, it will be understood that alerts are based in part on signals, filters, and other information selected or provided by you to the MADSCAN software. MAD has no control over the signals, filters, and other information that you select or provide. The generation of alerts or the providing of market data, company news, or market data derivative information shall in no way be understood as an endorsement or recommendation by MAD or the MAD Family of any companies, transactions or trades. MAD shall in no way be liable if alerts generated based on signals, filters, markets, or other search terms do not correspond fully or accurately to the needs, objectives and/or aims of the user. MAD does not warrant that the MADSCAN website or the MADSCAN software will meet your needs or trading objectives, or that they will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free. Nor does MAD warrant that the results obtained from the use of the MADSCAN software or the MADSCAN website will be accurate, timely, complete or reliable, or that the quality of any products, information, or other material will meet your expectations.


4. You are responsible for determining that trading based on any particular news reports or other content is lawful. MAD shall not be liable for any unlawful trades, including insider trading or illegal short-swing trading, based on information obtained or alerts generated by MADSCAN software. An investment in a stock, bond, security, financial instrument or commodity is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. It is quite possible to lose money by buying, selling or trading a stock, bond, security, financial instrument, commodity or other financial products available on markets. You may lose all or a portion of the principal invested. Values and investment returns will fluctuate and you may have a gain or loss. Margin, short sale, and derivatives trading carry significant additional risks. When purchasing or trading international stock, bond, security, financial instrument or commodities, beware that currency, political and other risks also may apply. Before investing, consider the company's objectives and risks, if applicable, and consider the charges, fees, and expenses associated with the purchase and sale of the stock, bond, security, financial instrument or commodity. Read the prospectus or sales literature carefully before investing or trading.


5. You are responsible for all buying, selling or trading you do based on information, content or alerts obtained from the MADSCAN website or the MADSCAN software. If you are a person outside of the United States or a person who is not a citizen, national, or lawful permanent resident of the United States, you should carefully review applicable laws, regulations and disclosure requirements before buying, selling or trading on U.S. equity, bond and other markets. Principals and persons employed by or affiliated with any equity, bond, commodity or other market or any regulating agency should consult applicable laws, regulations and disclosure requirements before buying, selling or trading. Professional brokers and advisers who buy, sell or trade for or on behalf of clients, institutions or others may have fiduciary duties and other responsibilities. MAD shall not be responsible if signals, filters or other search terms used to generate alerts do not accurately, timely, or fully match the instructions given to the professional broker or adviser for buying, selling or trading.


6. By accessing MADSCAN, which act independently constitutes acceptance of this Agreement, you represent that you are not governed by the laws of any country, state or jurisdiction in which such access is contrary to law or regulation or which would subject MAD or its affiliates to any registration or disclosure requirement or fee within such country, state or jurisdiction.
