1. Software Terms
a. Description. The Software is proprietary to Company and is protected by intellectual property laws and international intellectual property treaties. User’s access to the Software is licensed and not sold. Software is a trading platform with features including but not limited to the analysis of financial data, trade simulation, and live trade execution. This agreement is applicable to all versions of Software including but not limited to alpha and beta versions.
b. Use of Third Party Vendors. User is aware that the Software implements various third party software, information, platforms, and equipment (collectively “Vendors”) including but not limited to Application Programming Interfaces provided by clearing firms and/or independent vendors. Company warrants that use of third party providers and/or services is fully licensed for use by Vendors to Company and in-turn to licensed Users of Software. User shall abide by all Vendors’ individual terms of service agreements, if applicable.
c. Accessibility and Function. User agrees that from time to time, the Software may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation: (i) equipment (hardware) malfunctions, (ii) software malfunctions, (iii) periodic maintenance procedures or repairs which Company may undertake from time to time, or (iv) causes beyond the reasonable control of Company or which causes are not reasonably foreseeable by Company. Company is not responsible, directly or indirectly, for the performance and/or reliability of Vendors’ systems, equipment or otherwise, or User’s Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). The inability to access the Software may result in trading losses. User acknowledges that they are aware of this risk and accepts the risk and responsibility for mitigating risk independently of Company by calling the clearing firm trade desk to enter or exit a trade should the need arise.
d. Equipment. User shall be solely responsible for maintaining user’s own equipment and hardware. User shall ensure their equipment is compatible with the Software, electrical, and other physical requirements for User’s use of the Software including, without limitation, telecommunications and Internet connection(s), ISP, non-conflicting software, web browsers and/or other equipment, programs and services required to access and use the Software.
e. Alpha and Beta. User is aware that Alpha or Beta versions of the Software are versions that are currently in a state undergoing extensive testing and that there is a likely hood of malfunction. Malfunction may result in trading losses. User acknowledges that they are aware of this risk and accepts the risk.
f. Grant of License. Company grants User, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, a nonexclusive and nontransferable license to use the Software.
2. Security of User’s System
User shall be solely responsible for the security, confidentiality and integrity of all messages and the content that User receives, transmits through or stores via the Software or on any computer or related equipment that is used to access the Software. User shall be solely responsible for any authorized or unauthorized access to User’s brokerage account by any person, entity, partnership, organization, association or otherwise.
3. Fees and Payments
a. Collection and Taxes. All fees, applicable taxes, if any, and other charges related to the use of the Software shall be billed to User’s credit/charge card, or paid by check, paid by PayPal, wire transfer or another method of electronic payment accepted by Company (collectively, “Payment Method”) in its sole and absolute discretion. User shall be solely responsible for and shall pay Company, if applicable, all sales, use, value-added, personal property or other tax, duty or levy of any kind, including interest and penalties thereon (collectively, “Taxes”), whether imposed now or hereinafter by any governmental authority. User shall promptly pay Company in the event of any refusal by User’s credit card issuer to pay any amount to Company for any reason. User agrees to pay interest at the rate of two percent (2%) per month on any outstanding balance, together with costs of collection, including attorney's fees and costs, and any applicable bank fees. In the event User fails to pay any amount due as set forth herein, Company may, at its sole discretion, immediately suspend or terminate this Agreement and User’s access to the Software. Company reserves the right to report delinquent accounts to appropriate credit agencies.
b. Purchased Licenses. There is no commitment or obligation to purchase and therefore, Company offers no refunds for Software purchases. User shall not be entitled to a refund of the Software license fees under any circumstances after purchase. User agrees that without limitation certain features of the Software may not be available or supported in perpetuity. User also agrees that Company shall have the right to change features associated with the Software in Company’s sole discretion, and that Company may choose to discontinue support of Software at any time. Software licenses are for non-concurrent use, they are non-transferable, and can only be used by the User that purchased the license. Software licenses cannot be sold or bartered in the future and if such actions are taken the license can be terminated at Company’s sole discretion.
If for any reason Company is unable to charge User’s Payment Method for the full amount owed for the Software License provided, or if Company receives notification of a chargeback, reversal, payment dispute, or is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to User’s Payment Method, User agrees that Company may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment, including but not limited to, immediate cancellation, without notice to User, of any Software Services registered or renewed on User’s behalf. Company also reserves the right to charge User reasonable "administrative fees" or "processing fees" for (i) tasks Company may perform outside the normal scope of its Services, (ii) additional time and/or costs Company may incur in providing its Services, and/or (iii) User’s non-compliance with this Agreement (as determined by Company in its sole and absolute discretion). Typical administrative or processing fee scenarios include, but are not limited to (i) customer service issues that require additional personnel time or attention; (ii) disputes that require accounting or legal services, whether performed by Company staff or by outside firms retained by Company; (iii) recouping any and all costs and fees, including the cost of Services, incurred by Company as the results of chargebacks or other payment disputes brought by User, User’s bank or Payment Method processor. These administrative fees or processing fees will be billed to the Payment Method User has on file with Company.
c. Software Service Fees. Software and/or data services will automatically renew on the expiration date to ensure no interruption or loss of services and will renew for a period equal in time to the most recent service period chosen and paid for by User. User may request not to have software service auto-renew by emailing Company at firstname.lastname@example.org. Should the software service be terminated prior to any pre-paid period expiration date and pursuant to Section 6 of this Agreement, NO refund shall be issued to User by Company. Company expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at http://www.billionoperatingsystem.com/pricing  and effective immediately without need for further notice to User. If User has purchased or obtained Services for a period of months or years, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services in question come up for renewal. The Software service fees do not include the cost of any third party trading/transaction fees for real trading.
In addition, Company may participate in “recurring billing programs” or “Account updater services” supported by user’s credit card provider (and ultimately dependent on User’s bank participation). If User is enrolled in an automatic renewal option and Company is unable to successfully charge User’s existing Payment Method, User’s credit card provider (or User’s bank) may notify Company of updates to User’s credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge User’s new credit card on Company’s behalf with or without notification to Company. In accordance with recurring billing program requirements, in the event that Company is notified of an update to User’s credit card number and/or expiration date, Company will automatically update User’s payment profile on User’s behalf. Company makes no guarantees that it will request or receive updated credit card information. User acknowledges and agrees that it is User’s sole responsibility to modify and maintain User’s payment information, including, but not limited to (i) Managing User’s renewal options and (ii) ensuring User’s associated payment method(s) are current and valid. Further, User acknowledges and agrees that User’s failure to do so, may result in the interruption or loss of services, and Company shall not be liable to User or any third party regarding the same.
d. Upgrades. When User has an active Software service User shall be entitled to Software upgrades as provided in the sole discretion of Company. User’s entitlement to upgrades shall be limited to the specific edition of the Software for which the User is licensed. For instance, if User subscribes to Edition X of the Software, User shall be entitled only to Edition X upgrades and so forth. Software editions relate to the different editions (i.e. Futures, Forex, or Stocks) of Software and shall not be confused with release version number(s).
e. Proof of Delivery. User agrees that Proof of Delivery of a purchased Software license is acknowledged when any one of the following events has occurred; (a) User accepts Agreement which is required prior to logging into purchased Software license and activates Software with the provided unique login credentials or (b) Company sends to User a confirmation of purchase receipt by email along with Software download links.
