When you purchase a subscription to any of our services (e.g. guru newsletters) by means of electronic ordering or through a written order form (collectively, an “Order”), TLC will provide, and you will pay for, the service, and any other fees specified in an Order. You acknowledge that the fees for the service have been communicated to you and that you are aware of all applicable charges. You agree that your license to any service is neither contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features nor dependent on any oral or written public comments made by TLC regarding future functionality or features.
TLC will charge the subscription fee and any other additional fees you authorize to the credit card provided by you, or an invoice if pre-approved by TLC, at the time of your Order.
Credit Card Authorization
By authorizing TLC to charge a credit card for the fees associated with your subscription(s), you are authorizing TLC to automatically continue charging that card (or any replacement card if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen, or changed for any reason by the card issuer, and the issuer informs TLC of the new replacement card account) for all fees or charges associated with your subscription to the Service including any renewal fees as described below. TLC may elect to interrupt your access for fees that reach three (3) days past due.
Automatic Renewal of Subscription
When you subscribe for any service (e.g. a subscription) your service will be set to automatically renew upon its expiration. This means that unless you cancel your service at least prior to its expiration, your account will automatically renew for the same term. At the time of renewal, we will charge your credit card, or invoice you, the then-current fees to renew the service.
TLC uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology in order to provide a secure environment for all transactions and to protect certain information that you submit from loss, misuse and alteration while under our control. This type of technology also protects you from having your information intercepted by anyone other than TLC while it is being transmitted to us. We work hard to ensure that our Site is secure and that meet general industry standards. We also use other safeguards such as firewalls, authentication systems (e.g., passwords and personal identification numbers), and access control mechanisms to control unauthorized access to systems and data. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
To preserve privacy and confidentiality, your login information is transmitted in an encrypted format through a multi-factor authentication process. If you circumvent such authentication and/or log-in process in any manner, you agree that you are liable for any and all subsequent security breaches involving your account(s). We try very hard to protect our users' information. If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with these TOU. You hereby acknowledge that we are not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal data to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Changes in Price
TLC may, at any time, change the price of any service, or institute new charges or fees. Price changes and institution of new charges implemented during your subscription term will apply to subsequent subscription terms and to all new subscribers after the effective date of the change. If you do not agree to any such price changes, then you must cancel your account and stop using the service. Your continued use of the Service after the effective date of any such change shall constitute your acceptance of such change.
You agree that if there are problems or questions regarding the service that you will contact TLC for assistance and not dispute any charges from TLC unless you terminate for breach as provided in this Agreement. You agree to inform TLC of any credit card information changes, including expiration date. You represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to purchase any service and abide by these TOU including use of the credit associated with the account.
Because members immediately benefit from the knowledge of the statistics, analytics or from the gurus highlighted on our Site, we do not give refunds. You should recognize that investing and trading is a marathon, not a sprint so every last piece of information that can help you learn along the way and give you "an edge" over your competitors is worth investing in. Your obligations with respect to fulfilment of any service survive these TOU and your use of the Site.
