General Terms of Service for EWT Investing.com memberships & subscriptions.
These terms have been updated and apply from 2018-12-02 and indefinitely into the future, unless superseded by new updates later on. These terms apply to all types of customers & clients, both private and business clients, that are subscribed to the GEWC subscription service. The use of the terms “we” or “our” or “us” in the document denotes EWT Investing and all its personnel. In the text, the terms “membership” and “subscription” and derivatives of these words, refer to the same thing, i.e. the services we offer.
1. Payment terms and conditions.
1.1.1 Payment processing.
When a subscriber chooses to sign up for a subscription through our site, he/she will engage the payment system of one of our payment processors (Stripe – no affiliation implied by them being mentioned here). All payment processing is made through the payment processor’s infrastructure, with the exception of some user data that is securely (and not visible to us) transmitted to the payment processor. The exact process will differ depending on which payment processor the customer chooses at checkout.
Our site is protected by several different security layers and uses Force SSL on every page to ensure that all communication between the server and the user is secured. The SSL certificates we use are RSA 2048 bits. Should the customer have any doubt as to the strength of our SSL certificates, we recommend that the customer vists an online SSL tester and types in our domain name (ewtinvesting.com), and take a look at the result for him-/herself.
1.1.2 Payment problems/error handling.
Unfortunately, things sometimes go wrong in our world. EWT Investing cannot be held responsible for any payment error that occurs as a result of any type of failure with one of our payment processors as the payment process occurs out of our reach.
However, we will of course assist the customer with any problem that might arise during the payment process, for whatever reason. The customer is advised to please contact us immediately if something goes wrong during the process and it is not evident from any displayed error messages what needs to be done on the customer’s end to rectify the situation.
1.2 Payment of the subscription cost.
The entirety of the subscription cost must be paid in one payment installation. The payment cannot be divided into parts. Presently, the only way to pay is by using a credit card with one of the payment options we have set up.
If the payment has not been received in due time, the system will automatically disallow access to the membership areas of the website.
If you have made a payment, but somehow cannot access the website, please contact us immediately, and we will assist in resolving the issue.
1.3 Delayed payment of the subscription cost.
A payment delay, will automatically cause our membership system to disallow access to the membership sections of the site.
1.4 Recurring billing.
The customer must pay the subscription cost for any started subscription period at the start of each period. Hence, a payment from the customer’s credit card to our payment processor is initiated at the start of each new subscription period (i.e. weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly or for some services a one-time payment for life-time access). When the membership system detects that the payment has been successfully completed, the subscription information in our database is automatically updated to reflect that the customer has paid for one more subscription period and access to the service is renewed/allowed.
1.5 Information about EWT Investing on the bill.
Depending on the customer’s bank, and their way of showing to whom the customer made a payment, there are a few possible things that may appear on the customer’s credit card statement: 1. We conduct business under the name EWT Investing, which is fully owned by JMF, registered in Sweden. Shorthands of these two names may appear. 2. Our payment processor is Stripe. Shorthand or full name, may appear. Thus, it is possible that the customer credit card statement contains combinations of the above mentioned company and business names. The customer is always welcome to contact us if for any reason, he/she needs an extra receipt with our full legal business names. We are registered for tax purposes and VAT in Sweden.
2. Market data delivery and external suppliers of market data.
Our external suppliers of financial market data for any and all symbols, stock market indices, bond markets, commodities or currencies (including pairs and indicies) cannot be held reponsible for the analysis we do, using the data they have supplied to us. We add markings, letters, numbers, and sometimes text to the charts, and these additions constitute only our opinion, and is in no way something the data suppliers can be held liable for.
Charts with any and all types of analysis created by EWT Investing, are copyright protected automatically, with us being the holders of said copyright.
We want to point out that it is possible that the delivery of necessary data for our analysis work may cease – such an event is beyond our control, and constitutes a Force Majeure event in addition to the events listed in the separate Force Majeure-part of this document, for which we cannot be held liable. Naturally however, we will strive to immediately replace a possibly lost data supplier as soon as possible, and there is no advantage at all for us in not being able to deliver analysis to our customers. The customer will agree that we are given given 7 business days to replace any lost data supply and resume analysis updates.
3. Possible webhosting issues.
The customer will agree that any and all issues with our webhost which prevents analysis updates from being published on time, and/or which disables access to our website(s) constitutes a Force Majeure event for which we cannot in any way be held liable.
4. General information about trading with any and all financial instruments, stocks, futures contracts, currency units, and any and all derivates of all of the aforementioned.
We – EWT Investing – want to draw the customers/clients/subscribers/members attention to certain aspects of trading with any and all types of financial instruments, including but not limited to stocks, futures contracts, currency units, and any and all derivates of all of the aforementioned – all of which are henceforth in this document encapsulated by the term “financial instrument(s)”.
I. Trading with financial instruments of any sort always involves taking on risk. There are absolutely no guarantees that your investment capital will either increase, decrease or remain unchanged over any period of time.
II. We would disencourage the reader from thinking of financial instruments as “savings”, because they are a lot riskier than for instance, physical cash or a non-locked cash account at a bank. And even those two types of positions do carry risk with them.
III. We recommend – in general – that you never invest any capital you cannot afford to lose.
IV. We recommend any reader to consult with a proper, legally certified financial consultant, to properly ascertain and evaluate his/her risk level before taking on debt.
V. We recommend that the reader always makes sure to keep himself/herself up-to-date regarding all applicable taxes, commissions and other fees that might apply to his/her account and/or trading activities.
EWT Investing will also repeat our disclaimer, below. The reader automatically agrees to this disclaimer by using the site in any way.
