2. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER ABOUT ApesRT AND ITS SERVICES – YOUR RESULTS WILL VARY AND THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL RISKS
ApesRT is a entertainment-focused financial publisher that disseminates information about economic, business, and capital markets issues through various media. ApesRT is not an investment advisory service, a registered investment advisor, broker-dealer, or any other type of business subject to regulation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, or state securities regulators, or any “self-regulatory organization” (such as FINRA). WE DO NOT PURPORT TO TELL OR SUGGEST WHICH SECURITIES OR CURRENCIES CUSTOMERS SHOULD BUY OR SELL THEMSELVES, WE DO NOT MAKE TRADES FOR YOU AND ARE NOT A TRADING PLATFORM. Please do not sign up for or purchase our Services if this is what you are seeking.
Although ApesRT strives to provide accurate and reliable information from sources that it believes to be reliable, ApesRT makes no guarantees as to the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or correctness of any such information. ApesRT makes no guarantee or promise of any kind, express or implied, that anyone will profit from or avoid losses from using information disseminated through ApesRT. Nor is there any guarantee that you will earn back all, or even a portion, of what you pay to purchase any of our Premium Services.
All investments are subject to risk of loss, which you should consider in making any investment decisions. By agreeing to these Terms, you are agreeing to the risks involved in trading stock, options, and future markets and are also acknowledging that you, and not ApesRT, are solely responsible for any losses, financial or otherwise, as a result of using the Services. ApesRT shall, under no circumstances, be liable for any lost investment of money, lost profits, or lost opportunities. You should consult with a financial advisor, attorney, accountant or other qualified professional prior to making any investment decision. Before placing any trade, you should consult with a licensed broker or registered investment advisor as well as read The Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options, which is available here: https://www.theocc.com/Company-Information/Documents-and-Archives/Options-Disclosure-Document
The risk of loss in trading options, crypto currencies, futures, and all financial and non-financial assets can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in options trading may benefit you as well as conversely lead to large losses beyond your initial investment. Past results are not indicative of future results. Specifically, past results of any individual trader or trading system published by ApesRT are not indicative of future returns by that trader or system and are not indicative of future returns which may be realized by you. No representation is being made that you will or likely are to achieve profits similar to those shown.
The content and programs that ApesRT distributes and provides, both free and paid, are for informational and educational purposes. No one should consider the information disseminated by ApesRT to be personalized investment advice, a recommendation to buy, sell or hold any investment, an offer (or a solicitation of an offer) to buy or sell any investment, or the provision of any other kind of advice that would require ApesRT to register as a broker-dealer, investment adviser or similar entity. No one associated with ApesRT is authorized to make any representation to the contrary.
It should not be assumed that the methods, techniques, or indicators presented in the Services or the Website will be profitable or that they will not result in losses. In addition, the indicators, strategies, columns, articles and all other features of ApesRT are provided for informational and educational purposes only and should not be construed as investment advice. Examples presented on ApesRT’s Website are for educational purposes only. Such set-ups are not solicitations of any order to buy or sell. Accordingly, you should not rely solely on the information provided through the Services in making any investment. Rather, you should use such information only as a starting point for doing additional independent research to allow you to form your own opinion regarding investments. You should always check with your licensed financial advisor and tax advisor to determine the suitability of any investment.
ApesRT provides information that viewers of its programs may consider in making their own investment decisions. However, you will be responsible for considering such information carefully and evaluating how it might relate to your own decision to buy, sell or hold any investment. Such decisions must be based on your individual and independent evaluation of your financial circumstances, investment objectives, risk tolerance, liquidity needs, family commitments and other factors, not in reliance on any information obtained from ApesRT.
Statements by any person (whether identified as associated with ApesRT or any other entity) represent the opinions of that person only and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of ApesRT or any other person associated with ApesRT.
It is possible that any individual providing information or expressing an opinion on any ApesRT program may hold an investment position (or may be contemplating holding an investment position) that is inconsistent with the information provided or the opinion being expressed. This may reflect the financial or other circumstances of the individual or it may reflect some other consideration. Additionally, the independent contractors and employees or affiliates of ApesRT may hold positions in the stocks, currencies or industries discussed on the Website or in the Services. You should take this into account when evaluating the information provided or the opinion being expressed.
In addition, hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described here. 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 hypothetical performance results and the actual results 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, including the ability to withstand losses. Finally, past performance is in no way indicative of future results.
HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS (ALSO KNOWN AS “PAPER OR VIRTUAL TRADING”) IN THE MODEL PORTFOLIOS HAVE CERTAIN INHERENT LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING AND MAY NOT BE IMPACTED BY BROKERAGE AND OTHER SLIPPAGE FEES. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT ACTUALLY BEEN EXECUTED WITH CAPITAL, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER- OR OVER-COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. SIMULATED TRADING PROGRAMS IN GENERAL ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN.

12. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU MAY HAVE IN THE FUTURE MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. THE RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF (LEAD OR OTHERWISE) OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES) AND MUST FOLLOW THESE TERMS AS A COURT WOULD.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Rules. In all other respects, the parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.
The arbitrator shall follow the substantive law of the State of New York without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. Any award rendered shall include a confidential written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and ApesRT agree that disputes will only be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated, on a class wide, representative basis, or with any other arbitration(s) or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. You and ApesRT expressly waive any right to pursue any class or other representative action against each other.
Failure or any delay in enforcing this arbitration provision in connection with any particular claim will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other claims except that all claims must be brought within 1 year after the claim arises (the 1 year period includes the 120-day informal resolution procedures described above).
This arbitration provision sets forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to final and binding confidential arbitration and is governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as amended.
This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with ApesRT, bankruptcy, assignment, or transfer. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply. If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE, AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH BINDING, FINAL, AND CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing Section 13, (a) a representative action for public injunctive relief pursuant to California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1750 et seq.), Unfair Completion Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 et seq.) and/or False Advertising Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500 et seq.) must be arbitrated on a class basis, (b) in the event that the foregoing clause is deemed invalid or unenforceable, a representative action for public injunctive relief pursuant to California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1750 et seq.), Unfair Completion Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200 et seq.) and/or False Advertising Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500 et seq.) may be brought in the state or federal courts located in New York, New York on a class basis, and (c) any claims other than for public injunctive relief under the aforementioned California statutes must be arbitrated on an individual, non-class basis as otherwise set forth in this Section 13.
13. ApesRT’S ADDITIONAL REMEDIES
