Notice and Disclaimer
Notice & Disclaimer
The intent of this notice is to clarify your use of the Trader Genius software/ emails and its limits and natural boundaries. By using the Trader Genius software/ emails you are constructively agreeing with the terms and conditions of this notice. If you have questions about this notice you are encouraged to get advice from a lawyer that you trust.
If there is any law in your jurisdiction that would supersede this notice and its contents, then you may not use the Trader Genius software/emails because the notice is voided in part or in whole. It is your responsibility to know the laws in your location.
This Trader Genius Software is based on theoretical relationships, probability assumptions, and data that are believed to be accurate and reliable but which cannot be guaranteed. The purpose of this Trader Genius Software is to inform, to educate, and to demonstrate the trading opportunities that constantly arise using the principles and techniques of technical trading. Nothing in this Trader Genius Program is to be construed as investment advice or as a recommendation to buy or sell securities or futures. Please remember that the Trader Genius Program does not make predictions or forecasts! This Trader Genius Program is intended to improve your abilities to calculate, evaluate, and reduce trading risks. If after "paper trading" an imaginary account, you decide to invest (and risk) real money, all trading decisions must and should be your own.
We do not know your personal financial skill level, the risks you can afford to take, nor your ability to consistently follow a set of rules. Trading and Investing naturally include risk for the purpose of gaining an advantage that isn't guaranteed. The Trader Genius software/ emails are designed to present information only. The information presented on this website, software, emails, through Trader Genius Club and Coaching is for educational purposes only and is not intended to be a recommendation for any specific investment. The risk of loss trading securities, futures, and options can be substantial. Individuals must consider all relevant risk factors including their own personal financial situation before trading. Options trading involves risk and is not suitable for all investors. Trader Genius Club encourages all members to learn to trade in a virtual, simulated trading environment first, where no risk may be incurred. Members are solely responsible for any live trades placed in their own personal accounts. Trader Genius Club, it's coaches, members, and affiliates, are in no way responsible for individual loss due to poor trading decisions, poorly executed trades, inaccurate data, delays in data timing, failures in signals (e.g. Genius modes), or any other actions which may lead to loss of funds.
The "Live" version of the Trader Genius software offers the ability to send messages to your brokerage account (Interactive Brokers). The Trader Genius software works on a "best-effort" to communicate with the IB platform but it was never intended to be bulletproof. There are many points where communication with IB can fail or be with errors. For example, the network might be down, or their servers are offline. There could be a glitch in the computer that causes a rare transient error. For all these problems to be resolved, it would take significantly more software and attention as an Institutional customer might have. This software is a retail edition and is presented as such. It must be given your supervision to ensure all the trades are done as you intended when clicking buttons on the screen.
The Trader Genius software sends messages to the IB platform. That's all it does. The only safeguard that the end result is to your liking is by your own attention. In this respect, the Trader Genius software is a convenience and not a substitute for your knowing how to work with IB staff and their software.

WHAT COOKIES ARE AND HOW TRADER GENIUS USES THEM
What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files or pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual's hard drive. The cookie assigns you an ID, which allows Trader Genius to recognize you when you return to the site. By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on data such as the total number of visitors and pages viewed.
How Can I Disable Cookies?

WHAT KIND OF SECURITY IS IN PLACE TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Trader Genius cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided by our web site. Trader Genius will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.
Trader Genius uses a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which is the industry standard for secure commerce transactions. SSL encrypts all of your personal information, including your name and PayPal numbers, so that the information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. All online transactions involving money or personal information use SSL and are secure. Our windows software uses Private/Public keys which means your password is NEVER transmitted over the internet but instead used to decrypt your access to data.
