PLEASE SCROLL DOWN AND READ THESE TERMS OF USE IN THEIR ENTIRETY BEFORE YOU USE THE SITE. These Terms of Use, together with our Privacy Policy, which is hereby incorporated by reference (collectively, these “Terms of Use”), govern your use of https://www.fairleadstrategies.com, a website owned and operated by Fairlead Strategies, LLC (“Fairlead”, “we” or “us”), including any Content (as defined below), functionality and services offered on or through the site (the “Site”). Fairlead is an independent research provider and investment adviser registered with the state of Connecticut. By accessing or using the Site, you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to any of these Terms of Use, you may not use or access (or continue to access) the Site.

1. Changes to Terms of Use. We may change these Terms of Use at any time and without prior notice to you. If we do this, we will post the revised Terms of Use on this page and indicate at the top of the page the date these Terms of Use were last revised. Your use of the Site after changes are made to these Terms of Use means that you agree to be bound by such changes. As our business evolves, these Terms of Use may change accordingly. You should check the Site frequently to see recent changes.

2. Research Materials. The material provided on the publicly available sections of the Site, and the materials accessible to users who are subscribers to the Basic Plan (i.e., users who have not entered into a Subscription and Research Consulting Agreement with Fairlead) constitute financial newsletters of general and regular circulation which do not offer individualized investment advice attuned to any specific portfolio or any person’s particular needs. No mention of a particular security on the Site or in the materials accessible to Basic Plan subscribers constitutes a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any security, or that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk. The provision of research consulting and investment advisory services to Access Plan and Premium Plan subscribers is governed by the Subscription and Research Consulting Agreement.

BEFORE SELLING OR BUYING ANY STOCK OR OTHER INVESTMENT YOU SHOULD CONSULT WITH A QUALIFIED BROKER OR OTHER FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL TO VERIFY PRICING INFORMATION AND TO SOLICIT ADVICE AS TO THE APPROPRIATENESS OF A GIVEN TRANSACTION OR INVESTMENT.

3. Registration.

When you create your account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and keep that information up to date. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password and for any and all activities (including purchases) that are conducted through your account. Further, you are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to your account by accessing the Site through an Internet access provider or other third party service. You may never use another subscriber’s account, or permit any unauthorized third parties to use your account, without permission from Fairlead.

Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or special offers.

4. Basic Plan Fees and Payments.

(a) Subscription fees for Basic Plan subscribers will be billed on either a semi-annual or monthly basis, at your option. Please note that different fee schedules apply for semi-annual versus monthly subscription periods.

We will bill all charges automatically to your credit card or other payment method (e.g., PayPal) elected by you at the time of subscription.

We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance.

You can cancel your subscription at any time by unsubscribing through the “My Profile” link at the top of the homepage when you are logged in. Cancellations take effect as of your next billing date. Fees for the Basic Plan cannot be refunded or prorated. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to your credit card.
