Subscriber Services and Corporate Members.  
TraderPlanet reserves the right to impose fees quoted in U.S. Dollars (which may be billed either on a pay-per-usage basis or in regular time increments, i.e. either monthly or yearly) or other conditions or prerequisites for the use of or access to areas of the TraderPlanet Services or certain Content (hereinafter "Subscriber Services"), and for Members which are business entities, which have registered their Company Profile to signify themselves as corporate members ("Corporate Members") of the TraderPlanet Website, which allow such Corporate Members to use the TraderPlanet Services and to create customized corporate profiles in accordance with TraderPlanet's corporate membership program which is incorporated herein by reference. All fees paid will be non-refundable in the event that You violate any of the terms of this Agreement.  Subscriber Services may include terms and conditions that supplement this Agreement. By accessing any Subscriber Services You agree to comply with their terms and conditions.

Rules for Contests, Sweepstakes, Raffles and Promotions.  TraderPlanet may, from time to time, and at its sole discretion, offer its Members a reward program ("Reward Program") comprised of various rewards or credits (including financial rewards) based on their activities on the TraderPlanet Website and use of the TraderPlanet Services. Any such Reward Program comes with no contractual obligations whatsoever on behalf of any party and is purely a voluntary, promotional Reward Program that TraderPlanet may decide, at its sole discretion, to offer to or withhold from certain Members, and Members will be free to accept or decline as they see fit. The criteria for selection of rewards or credits may be changed and the size of the rewards or credits comprising any Reward Program (including the monetary value of Mendels that are either credited to You through your use of the TraderPlanet Services or acquired by You for financial consideration as determined by TraderPlanet  in its sole discretion) may be changed or modified, or the rewards may be terminated or withdrawn, at any time, by TraderPlanet, in its sole discretion, without prior notice.  Members who fail to abide by this Agreement, or otherwise engage in behavior deemed inappropriate by TraderPlanet in its sole discretion may be, at TraderPlanet's sole discretion, disqualified from participation in any Rewards Program or promotions and/or banned from the TraderPlanet Website without prior notice. All applicable taxes, if any, that may result from Members choosing to accept financial rewards from TraderPlanet are the sole responsibility of the Members.

In addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, any contests, charity functions, Reward Programs, credits or other promotions (including trading contests, sweepstakes, raffles) (collectively, "Promotions") made available through the TraderPlanet Website or TraderPlanet Services may be governed by specific terms and conditions that are separate from this Agreement. You should review the specific terms and conditions for a particular Promotion to determine whether or not You are eligible to participate in such Promotion. By participating in any such Promotion, You will become subject to any specific terms and conditions applicable to such Promotion, which may vary from the terms and conditions set forth herein. To the extent that the terms and conditions of any such Promotion conflict with this Agreement, the terms and conditions of such Promotion shall control.

Liability for Unauthorized Use or Disclosure.  Licensee acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, its breach or threatened breach of this Agreement, including but not limited to any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Content, will diminish the value of TraderPlanet and the TraderPlanet Services and will cause irreparable and continuing damage to TraderPlanet for which an adequate legal remedy will not exist. Accordingly, Licensee stipulates that, if it breaches any of its covenants in this Agreement, TraderPlanet will be entitled to an entry of a court order granting specific performance or injunctive relief, without requirement of a bond or proof of monetary damage or an inadequate remedy at law, to protect its rights under this Agreement, in addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity.

Violation of Terms and Liquidated Damages.  You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if it becomes necessary for TraderPlanet to pursue legal action to enforce this Agreement, your access to the TraderPlanet Website and the TraderPlanet Services will be terminated in TraderPlanet's sole determination, You will forfeit any credits that you had previously accrued in your Member Account through your prior participation in any Promotions, and You will be liable to pay TraderPlanet the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of TraderPlanet's damages for the specified breaches of these Terms and Conditions:

a. If You post a message or content that (1) impersonates any person or entity; (2) falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person's explicit consent, You agree to pay TraderPlanet one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) for each such posting.  This provision does not apply to Content that constitutes lawful non-deceptive parody of public figures.

b. If TraderPlanet establishes limits on the frequency with which You may access the TraderPlanet Services, or terminates your access to or use of the TraderPlanet Services, You agree to pay TraderPlanet one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each message posted in excess of such limits or for each day that You access TraderPlanet in excess of such limits, whichever is greater.

c. If You send unsolicited email advertisements to TraderPlanet email addresses or through TraderPlanet's servers or computer systems, You agree to pay TraderPlanet fifty dollars ($50.00) for each such email.

e. If You are a Posting Agent and use the TraderPlanet Services in violation of this Agreement, in addition to any liquidated damages under clause (d), You agree to pay TraderPlanet one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each and every Item You post in violation of this Agreement.  A Posting Agent will also be deemed an agent of the party engaging the Posting Agent to access the TraderPlanet Services (the "Principal Party"), and the Principal Party (by engaging the Posting Agent in violation of this Agreement) agrees to pay TraderPlanet an additional one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each Item posted by the Posting Agent on behalf of the Principal Party in violation of this Agreement.

f. If You aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except for your own Content) in violation of this Agreement without TraderPlanet's prior, express written permission, You agree to pay TraderPlanet  three thousand dollars ($3,000.00) for each day that You engage in such conduct.

You hereby agree that such damages are a reasonable estimate of actual damages and You waive your right to contest these damages in a court of law or other proceeding. Otherwise, You agree to pay TraderPlanet's actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably determined. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, TraderPlanet retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in this Agreement, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in this Agreement, or any combination thereof.

Speculative Nature.   Licensee acknowledges and understands the speculative nature of the commodities futures and financial markets and recognizes the high degree of risk involved in participating in such markets, with or without the access to and use of the TraderPlanet Services.  Licensee also acknowledges that the Content or Products furnished by TraderPlanet through the TraderPlanet Services or by any other means is not intended to replace Licensee's individual research or receipt of professional investment advice, and that the provision of Content or Products on the TraderPlanet Services or by any other means does not constitute the provision of trading advice or an endorsement or recommendation by TraderPlanet of any trading methods, programs, systems, or routines, based on, or tailored to, any positions or other circumstances or characteristics of Licensee or anyone else, or otherwise.

Licensee further acknowledges that individual performance in the financial markets depends upon individual skills and experience at performing technical, fundamental and intermarket analysis, knowledge of and familiarity with the markets, effectiveness of individual decision making and decisiveness, and time availability to devote to analyzing and trading the markets.  TraderPlanet  MAKES NO GUARANATEE OF PERFORMANCE EITHER IN THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR GUARANTEES THAT LICENSEE WILL MAKE PROFITS AND/OR NOT SUFFER ANY LOSSES FROM TRADING BASED ON, OR IN RELIANCE ON, THE TraderPlanet SERVICES OR THE USE THEREOF.   LICENSEE ASSUMES FULL RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE HIS OR ITS OWN TRADING DECISIONS INVOLVING ENTRIES, EXITS, AND STOP PLACEMENTS, BASED UPON HIS OR ITS OWN ASSESSMENT OF HIS OR ITS TRADING STYLE, OBJECTIVES, RISK PROPENSITY, RISK CAPITAL, EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE AS A TRADER ALL OF WHICH CAN INFLUENCE LICENSEE'S TRADING RESULTS SUCH THAT HIS OR ITS  PERFORMANCE RESULTS MAY BE BETTER OR WORSE THAN THAT OF OTHER TRADERS INCLUDING THOSE WHO MAY ALSO BE ACCESSING AND USING THE TraderPlanet SERVICES  AT THE SAME TIME. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE TraderPlanet INDEMNITIES RESPONSIBLE FOR LICENSEE'S TRADING RESULTS OR PERFORMANCE BASED UPON THE TRADING DECISIONS THAT LICENSEE MAKES.  FURTHERMORE, IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW.  LICENSEE AGREES THAT NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE OR HAS BEEN MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT OR TRADE WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN ON THE TraderPlanet SERVICES OR IN ANY OF TraderPlanet 'S PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS, OR ELSEWHERE.  IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.  ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT.  IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING 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 TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.  THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS, IN GENERAL, OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM, WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS, AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.  TraderPlanet   HAS HAD LITTLE OR NO EXPERIENCE IN TRADING ACTUAL ACCOUNTS FOR ITSELF OR FOR CUSTOMERS.  SINCE THERE ARE NO ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS TO COMPARE TO THE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS, LICENSEE SHOULD BE PARTICULARLY WARY OF PLACING UNDUE RELIANCE ON THESE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT BEEN EXECUTED, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER-OR-OVER COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. There is a very high degree of risk involved in trading securities, commodities, futures, options and Forex.  Past results of any trader written about or referred to in the Content are not indicative of future returns by that trader, and are not indicative of future returns which may be realized by You or others.  The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results. You should not trade with money that You can not afford to lose.

Your sole and exclusive remedy for any dissatisfaction with the TraderPlanet Services or dispute with TraderPlanet is to discontinue your use of the TraderPlanet Services.

Modification to the TraderPlanet Services and Agreement.  TraderPlanet reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change the terms and conditions of this Agreement from time to time for any reason, by posting such changes on the TraderPlanet Website, and to change, modify, suspend or discontinue the TraderPlanet Services (or any parts thereof), temporarily or permanently, including but not limited to revising and/or eliminating or discontinuing any aspect, content, features or other Content on or available through the TraderPlanet Services without prior notice to You.  You agree that the TraderPlanet Indemnities shall not be liable to You or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the TraderPlanet Services.

You acknowledge that TraderPlanet may establish general practices and limits concerning your use of the TraderPlanet Services (and may modify such practices and limits from time to time), including the maximum number of days that Content will be retained by the TraderPlanet Services, the maximum number and size of postings, email messages, or other Content that may be transmitted or stored by the TraderPlanet Services, and the frequency with which You may access the TraderPlanet Services.

You are responsible for checking this Agreement on the TraderPlanet Website on a regular basis to keep yourself apprised of any changes to ensure familiarity with the most current version of this Agreement.  Display of notice of changes of this Agreement online at the TraderPlanet Website shall constitute effective notice under this Agreement on the day TraderPlanet places the changes on-line on its TraderPlanet Website, and your continued use of the TraderPlanet Website thereafter shall constitute and signify your acceptance of the new terms and conditions and agreement to be bound by any such modifications, amendments, additions or deletions.

Third Party Applications.  Your access to or use of the TraderPlanet Services may require your use of a media player or other application that is not provided by TraderPlanet and for which TraderPlanet is not liable. Your use of such media player or other application will be governed by the license agreement accompanying the same, and You agree to comply with all of the terms and conditions of such license agreement.

Correctional Institution Inmates Prohibited.  
Inmates at any jail, prison, or correctional institution are expressly prohibited from using the TraderPlanet Services. By agreeing to the Terms and Conditions of this Agreement, You acknowledge that You are not currently incarcerated in any jail, prison, or correctional facility of any kind and further agree not to allow your Account to be used by any inmate at any jail, prison, or other correctional facility.

Competitor Use Prohibited, Liquidated Damages for Competitive Use.
The TraderPlanet Website and the TraderPlanet Services are to be used for non-competitive purposes only. Use of the TraderPlanet Website or TraderPlanet Services by competing businesses, their affiliates, employees, or other associates is absolutely prohibited and constitutes a breach of this Agreement, giving rise to substantial damages.  If You are an owner, employee or other associate of a competing social networking website (other than simply a member), You hereby agree that damages from the unlicensed visitation of the TraderPlanet Website are difficult to compute. Damages from breach of this competitor use provision shall therefore be set at $10,000.00 per unauthorized TraderPlanet Website visit. You hereby agree that such damages are a reasonable estimate of actual damages and waive your right to contest these damages in a court of law or other proceeding.

Cancellation, Termination and Interruption of Services. 
You agree that TraderPlanet has the right (but not the obligation) to deactivate or delete your Account, restrict, deny or terminate your access to all or part of the TraderPlanet Services, block your email or IP address, or otherwise terminate your access to or use of the TraderPlanet Services (or any part thereof), or remove, edit, and/or discard any content or postings transmitted by You, or information sent, stored or received via the TraderPlanet Services, immediately and without prior notice and for any or no reason, in its sole and absolute discretion, and without liability, if, in its opinion, it believes that your use of the TraderPlanet Services may violate any laws, infringe upon another person's or entity's rights, violate any of the terms of the Agreement or is inconsistent with the letter or spirit of the Agreement, or is otherwise deemed inappropriate for continued access.

You also agree that TraderPlanet may in its sole and absolute discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the TraderPlanet Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the TraderPlanet Services under any provision of this Agreement may be effected without prior notice and that TraderPlanet reserves the right to bar any further access to the TraderPlanet Services. You expressly agree and acknowledge that the TraderPlanet Indemnities shall not be liable to You or any third-party for any termination of your access to the TraderPlanet Services, and that this provision is an essential element of our relationship, without which TraderPlanet  would not offer the TraderPlanet Services to You.

Upon termination of the TraderPlanet Services, your right to use the TraderPlanet Services will immediately cease. In the event of such termination TraderPlanet has no obligation whatsoever to refund any portion of fees paid or compensate You for any lost use of your privileges under this Agreement or for any credits that You accrued as a result of your prior use of the TraderPlanet Services, and You shall have no right and TraderPlanet will have no obligation thereafter to forward any unread or unsent messages to You or any third party.

If You have subscribed to any fee-based service, You remain responsible for paying any amounts owed on your Account at the time your fee-based service and/or Account is terminated or cancelled. If You are participating in any free promotional offer for accessing a fee-based service, You must cancel such service before the end of the free trial period to avoid incurring charges. Certain fee-based services may require cancellation charges, and You agree to pay all such cancellation charges.

You acknowledge and agree that TraderPlanet may, in its sole discretion, deny You access, through the TraderPlanet Services, to linked Third Party Resources on the Internet, and TraderPlanet shall have no responsibility to notify any third-party providers, nor any responsibility for any consequences resulting from lack of notification.  Termination, suspension or cancellation of this Agreement or your access rights to the TraderPlanet Services shall not affect any right or relief to which TraderPlanet may be entitled, at law or in equity. Upon termination of this Agreement, all rights granted to You will automatically terminate and immediately revert back to TraderPlanet and its licensors, and You agree not to attempt to use the TraderPlanet Services after said termination.

You may cancel your Member status in the TraderPlanet Services with or without cause at any time by emailing your request TraderPlanet. After cancellation, You will no longer have access to the Password Protected Member Services and all information or content of yours contained therein may be deleted by TraderPlanet. TraderPlanet shall not accept any liability for such deleted information or content.

All provisions of this Agreement, except for any license granted to You, survive any suspension or termination of your Member status or of access to all of or any part of the TraderPlanet Services.

Communications and Notices.  You agree to receive all TraderPlanet required communications and notices, including service announcements, electronic emails, newsletters and administrative messages ("Notices") from us.  WE MAY PROVIDE NOTICES TO YOU ELECTRONICALLY EITHER BY E-MAIL OR BY POSTING THE NOTICE ON THE TRADERPLANET WEBSITE.

Additional Terms.  You acknowledge and agree that the warranty disclaimers and liability and remedy limitations in this Agreement are material terms of this Agreement and that they have been taken into account in the decision by TraderPlanet to give you access to the TraderPlanet Services hereunder. You may not assign any of your rights, obligations or privileges hereunder without the prior, written consent of TraderPlanet. Any assignment of the foregoing other than as provided for in this section shall be null and void, ab initio.

Severability and Integration.
  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between You and TraderPlanet and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between us. The failure of TraderPlanet to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any part or provision of the Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the TraderPlanet Services or the Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
