  12. 12. Fair Use Policy. You agree that the Services are subject to a fair use policy, which is detailed below. If we provide notice of non-compliant usage, and you refuse to correct your compliance, Riskalyze reserves the right to charge up to twelve (12) months in arrears for the actual fair usage of the Services, and to adjust your billing for the remainder of your contract term to reflect your actual fair usage of the Services at the time of notice.The Fair Use Policy is as follows:
    1. Riskalyze user accounts may not be shared between multiple individuals, or used by one individual to produce the outputs of the Services en masse for multiple advisors. The average user account has 50 to 200 client profiles and analyzes 200 to 800 client investment accounts; usage in excess of 300 client profiles or 1,000 client accounts falls outside of the Fair Use Policy.
    2. Riskalyze user accounts licensed only for administrative / operations assistants may not be used by individuals holding a securities registration who meet with clients and/or provide advice. For example, if you present the individual as an advisor or client-facing representative of your firm on your web site, they do not qualify for an assistant license. Riskalyze reserves the right to determine which named individuals may qualify, to change that determination if their role with your firm changes, and to limit the number of assistant licenses available to you.
    3. Riskalyze Trading licenses must only reflect the assets under the direct management of the named financial advisors whose Riskalyze licenses are connected to the Trading license. The average advisor manages and trades 100 to 200 accounts; usage in excess of 300 accounts per advisor falls outside of the Fair Use Policy.
    4. Outside Asset Sync is intended for assets not in your custody, which cannot be synced via a custodial feed. The use of Asset Sync Unlimited to sync outside held-away accounts for more than 150 clients would fall outside of the Fair Use Policy.
  13. 13. License to Use Marketing Resources. Subject to your continued status as a paying customer in good standing, Riskalyze hereby grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferrable license to utilize its “Riskalyze” trademark, “Risk Number” trademark, logo and brand images, marketing copy, content resources, white papers, print collateral, slide decks and other marketing resources (the “Marketing Resources”) provided to you, for the sole purpose of promoting your securities, advisory and/or insurance firm’s use of the Services in your marketing communications directed at acquiring and/or retaining clients. You agree to utilize the Marketing Resources in accordance with any Brand Image Guidelines provided to you by Riskalyze. You agree to cease and desist from the use of the Marketing Resources if (a) you terminate your Riskalyze account and are no longer a paying customer, or (b) Riskalyze requests in writing that you do so for any reason.
  14. 14. Billing, Payment and Term of Contract. The Services are licensed to you under a contract that you enter into with Riskalyze at the time of your subscription. The terms of your contract are encapsulated in an order form that we email to the “account owner” at the time of purchase. If you did not receive or cannot find a copy of your order form, simply request one by sending an email to [email protected].Unless stated otherwise on your order form, the following contractual terms apply.
    1. The initial term of your contract is twelve (12) months from the date service commences, and your contract will automatically renew for subsequent twelve (12) month terms, unless notice of non-renewal is provided by either party at least thirty (30) days in advance of each renewal. This contract structure provides pricing protection, and Riskalyze may not apply future pricing increases to your contract during its term.
      If we determine that we must change your pricing, we will notify you that your pricing will automatically change as of the beginning of your next contract term. We will always provide at least thirty (30) days’ notice for any such pricing change prior to any deadline that you have for choosing not to renew your contract with Riskalyze.
    2. Any additional user licenses, add-ons or other services added during the course of your contract will be committed for the remainder of your current contract term, unless otherwise noted on an Order Form for the additional licenses, add-ons or services.
    3. You will be billed annually in advance via ACH withdrawal from your bank account. Monthly billing or payment via credit card is available to most customers, at a higher license fee. Riskalyze reserves the right, under certain circumstances, to require annual billing or ACH payment when circumstances warrant.
    4. All fees are non-refundable once billed. If you believe you have been billed in error, please email [email protected] and we will be glad to assist.
  15. 15. Termination of Service. In order to provide notice of non-renewal and terminate the Services, you must provide notice to Riskalyze. For your security, you must provide notice to Riskalyze using the account cancellation feature in the Settings screen of your Riskalyze account. If you do not have access to the account cancellation feature, you can provide written notice via electronic mail at [email protected] or via postal mail to the address which is set out at the beginning of these Terms. Termination is deemed effective when you receive a message from Riskalyze that your cancellation has been processed.Once Riskalyze has processed your cancellation, your access to and payment for the Services will continue for the remainder of your contract term. If there is no deadline for notice of non-renewal specified on your order form, such notice of non-renewal must be received by Riskalyze thirty (30) days in advance of your next billing date.Riskalyze may, at any time, terminate your account and refuse your access to the Services if (a) you have breached any provision of the Terms (or have acted in manner which shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Terms); (b) Riskalyze is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Services to you is, or becomes, unlawful); (c) you are no longer a registered representative, registered investment advisor, registered insurance agent or administrative / operations assistant of a registered securities firm, registered investment advisor or registered insurance agent; (d) Riskalyze is transitioning to or no longer providing the Services to users in the jurisdiction in which you are resident or from which you use the Services; (e) the provision of the Services to you by Riskalyze is, in Riskalyze’s sole discretion, no longer commercially viable; (f) your communication with Riskalyze employees is abusive or threatening, in Riskalyze’s sole discretion; or (g) you do not pay the amounts due for the Services according to the Terms. Termination for reasons (a), (c), (f) or (g) shall not relieve you of the obligation to pay for the Services for the remainder of your contract.Upon termination, all of the legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and Riskalyze have benefited from, been subject to (or which have accrued over time while the Terms have been in force) or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, will be unaffected by this termination, including the provisions of the “General Legal Terms” and “Conflict of Laws” sections below.

Location of Processing

Riskalyze processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America and may do so in other countries. In some cases, unless otherwise prohibited by a superseding agreement, we may process personal information outside your own country. For more information about where your data may be processed, contact [email protected]

Information Sharing

We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information about current or former Users to third parties. We may share User information with Riskalyze subsidiaries or affiliated companies in order to properly service your account or provide an agreed upon service. In compliance with applicable laws, we may disclose information we collect about our Users and former Users, as described above, to nonaffiliated businesses and service providers such as the following, who we have also shared information with in the last 12 months:

  • Companies acting as our service providers, including those used to provide hosting, IT services, data analytics, research, and credit card processing.
  • Companies that perform services for us or on your behalf, including the asset managers, investment strategists and fund companies who manage your assets;
  • Companies who provide a technology service that is integrated with Riskalyze, when you have enabled that integration in your Riskalyze account (you should ensure that you only connect trusted services to your Riskalyze account);
  • Companies that participate in joint marketing activities with us;
  • Financial services companies (such as your custodian and brokers or dealers) who effect transactions on your behalf;
  • Other organizations, with your consent or as directed by your representative or controller; and
  • Companies participating with us in a proposed or actual sale, merger, transfer, or business exchange.

These companies are required to treat your private information with the same high degree of confidentiality that we do and only for the services for which they are engaged.

If you are affiliated with a broker-dealer or enterprise RIA who uses Riskalyze Command Center or its predecessor products, we may connect data about your Clients, portfolios and accounts into their data feeds to assist them in providing compliance and supervision services to you and your firm.

If you are a User, we may share your information with one or more Customers when explicitly granted permission to do so by you. By doing so, you identify yourself as a Client and these Customers as controllers over the shared personal data, potentially preventing us from deleting your personal information without direction from our Customer.

We may also disclose information to non-affiliated parties as allowed by law, when we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce any applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm or damages to the rights, property or safety of Riskalyze, its Users or the public as required or permitted by law. If Riskalyze is ordered by a legal process or government to provide data about one or more individual Users, we will notify those Users of our compliance with that order, to the extent permitted by law.

In addition, we may develop, use, distribute and publish information and statistics derived from your data and the content that you contribute for use on an anonymous, aggregate basis. This particular use of your data and content will not result in the distribution or publication of any personally identifiable information.

Deleting Your Information

We believe that your data belongs to you, and therefore, you may delete your account at any time that you choose. To request that your account be deleted, please contact us at [email protected]. Because of the way we maintain the Services to protect the integrity of your data, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted, and your data may remain in our backup systems. However, our systems are architected so that your data will drop out of active use for all the uses that we described above.

Information We Do Not Collect

We do not intentionally collect or process personal information for individuals who are deemed to be children under applicable Data Protection Laws. Customers using the system may direct Riskalyze to process this information only when they follow the appropriate steps as determined by applicable Data Protection Laws. When Riskalyze identifies that information for children has been collected using the Services in a manner that does not comply with applicable law, we will take appropriate steps to delete that information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any changes to the policy at riskalyze.com/privacy and, if the changes are significant in our judgment, we will provide a notification of such changes. Your continued use of the Services or the web site following the posting of any changes to the policies constitute your acceptance of the amended Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please contact us at [email protected].

Your Rights and Choices

Subject to certain restrictions, California residents have certain rights as described below. As a California resident, you also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section also describes how to exercise these rights and what to expect from us when you do so. If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under applicable law or would like to exercise any of them, please contact us either through our email at [email protected] or call us at 855-RISKALYZE.

Accessing and Deleting Your Personal Information

  • Right to request access to your personal information. California residents have the right to request that we disclose what categories of personal information we collect, use, disclose or sell about you. You may also request the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you. However, we may withhold some information where the risk to you, your personal information, or our business is too great to disclose the information.
  • Right to request deletion of your personal information. You may also request that we delete any personal information that we have collected from/about you. However, we may retain personal information as authorized under applicable law, such as personal information required as necessary to provide our services, protect our business and systems from fraudulent activity, to debug and identify errors that impair existing functionality, as necessary for us, or others, to exercise their free speech or other rights, comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, for scientific or historical research, for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations. Of course, we also need certain types of information so that we can provide our services. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to utilize our services to their full potential.

 

For security purposes, we may request additional information from you to verify your identity when you request to exercise your California privacy rights so we can reasonably verify you are eligible to make such a request.

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request electronically within 45 days of its receipt and will notify you if we require more time. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights and do not have an account with us, feel free to contact us as discussed above and we will request additional information to perform identity verification where possible. If you are a Client of one of our Customers, please contact them first as we are most often unable to comply without their direction.

Sale of Personal Information

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. Riskalyze does not sell your personal information as we understand that term to be defined by the CCPA and its implementing regulations, nor have we done so in the last 12 months.

Non-Discrimination Rights

California residents have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising their rights as described in this section. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights.
