3. Subscriptions, Renewals, Billing and Cancellation

When becoming a paid subscriber (“subscriber”), you will need to provide us with your name, email address, and billing and shipping addresses, as well as your credit card information. As a subscriber, you agree to pay the applicable subscription fee as set forth on this Website. Sales taxes may be charged in addition to the subscription fee.  BY PLACING YOUR ORDER, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE UNLESS YOU CANCEL.

Unless stated otherwise, subscription is for online and/or electronic access to the Services only. Certain promotions may offer features that are issued in physical form. Shipping of any goods or service associated with these promotions is limited to the United States. Physical fulfillment of goods or services not specifically mentioned in a promotion is at the sole discretion of GrowthAdvisor.

Automatic Renewal
Your subscription will automatically renew annually at the then-current rate, until you notify us of your decision to terminate your subscription.  The product’s settings pages provide the option to TURN OFF “auto-renewal”.  You can use that to have your paid service continue, but not automatically renew at the end of the paid period. Most subscriptions will renew for one-year terms, regardless of the offer under which the subscription started. Of course, we will email you about the length and price for your renewal before we charge you. If you would like to turn off automatic renewal, or extend your subscription for additional years, please contact [User Support]. BY ALLOWING FOR YOUR RENEWAL, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE. Accordingly, you agree that you will be billed automatically at the beginning of each renewal period at the then-current subscription rate (plus sales tax, if applicable) to the credit card you used in your most recent transaction with us. If you provided more than one card, the first card on file will be used.

We reserve the right to increase a Service's subscription fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice. Service fees are due in advance.

Refunds and Credits
Different Services (and sometimes specific offers) may have different refund policies that apply (including some that provide for no refunds).  Please review the specific terms of the Service before subscribing as you are agreeing to be bound to those terms.  If you are unsure of your cancellation rights, please contact Support through our intercom button.

All sales are final. Unused time of the subscription term will not be refunded. You will have access until the end of the current term. If a user opens a Payment dispute for any reason, the user will be permanently banned from GrowthAdvisor.

From time to time, we may offer Services through third-party vendors. In such cases, each vendor’s refund policy will apply and may differ from our refund policies.

Transfer; Discontinuing a Subscription
You cannot transfer your subscription to someone else. A subscription will continue through the end of its term and then will be automatically renewed at the then-current price and conditions.

Subscriptions with GrowthAdvisor will continue until it is either discontinued by us, or cancelled by you. You are responsible to cancel your subscription before the end of your term. If the transaction fails, your subscription will be suspended after three (3) failed attempts. For assistance in this situation, please contact User Services.

Granted Free Account Subscribers
In some cases, and always in the sole discretion of GrowthAdvisor, a certain number of users may be granted a free full-access account (“Free-Account Subscribers”). This means we will give you a fully functional account equivalent to any paid subscriber.  Free-Account Subscriber are expected to provide GrowthAdvisor with financial information about companies that GrowthAdvisor does not already possess.  A Free-Account Subscriber can be invited to create a new account, or have an already-paid account refunded.

If a user is offered and accepts a free subscription, the subscription will terminate in one (1) year unless the user becomes a paid subscriber.

4. Third-Party Relationships, Data and Terms of Use

Data and Analysis About Companies

In the material and data that we make available about companies to our users, we rely on a variety of third party sources, such as Crunchbase®. We believe these sources of data to be accurate and reliable, but sometimes they may not be. We make no claims or representations as to the accuracy, completeness, or truth of any material provided by such third parties. Nor are we liable for any errors or delays in the Content or transmission of the data on this Website.

We have business relationships with an ever-changing assortment of companies, including technology vendors, leasing companies, data providers, banks, distribution channels, advertisers, landlords, and accountants. It would take too much space to list all the companies that we do business with and that contribute directly or indirectly to this Website or the Services, but we try to disclose the fact that we collaborate with such parties in connection with any interface with users on this Website.

Please note that certain individual third-party services offered on this Website will likely have their own, or additional, terms and conditions.  Please review those terms carefully. In the event of a conflict, these Terms and any of our other terms for use of a Service will control.

5. Shared Content – Company Data
You will be asked for information about companies you are working for, or have worked for in the past.  We may share this information with other subscribers who are working, or have worked, at the same companies so they may confirm, deny, or amend that information.  You may prevent this sharing through privacy settings (available in the SETTINGS page).

Other subscribers may use an advanced mode to explore the estimates we give them for the value of their stock options.  This advanced mode may include values provided by you concerning revenue, profitability, expenses, or cap table.  This data will only be shared with other subscribers who work, or have worked, at these companies.  You can disable sharing of this information through privacy settings (available in the SETTINGS page).

GrowthAdvisor may also provide information about companies and stock option valuation in a publicly available Career Advocate Hub (“Hub”) where GrowthAdvisor looks to publicly discuss stock option valuation prediction and other related subjects.  You can disable sharing of this information to the Hub through privacy settings (available in the SETTINGS page).

As a Free-Account Subscriber you will be required to share the information you provide about companies will always be shared.  It may additionally be shared to the publicly available Customer Advocate Hub.  GrowthAdvisor reserves the right to sell information provided by Free-Account Subscribers. You may choose to keep the information you provide private by becoming a paid subscriber and using your privacy settings.

We will not sell access to the data you provide.

6. Shared Content –Discussion Groups
Our online discussion groups (“Discussion Groups”) allow subscribers to share and see information about their employers, make and see predictions about compensatory stock offered by the employers, aggregate data from other sources with the information shared through the Discussion Groups, and track predictions against actual results. By putting together lots of information from a variety of sources, we hope to provide subscribers with more detailed information about employers to make better investment decisions concerning equity compensation.

You should not assume that the opinions that people express in Discussion Groups are endorsed in any way by GrowthAdvisorHQ and are anything other than the opinions of the individuals expressing them.  When you look at other people's predictions, you should remember that those people may have interests in the stocks that they are making predictions about. When you review someone’s predictions in a Discussion Group, or the stock tips you see or hear elsewhere, you should not assume that the source of the prediction is unbiased or independent. One of the benefits of this Website is that you can see the performance of predictions over time and, we hope, distinguish valid data from self-serving misinformation.

Both subscribers and other users may contribute to the information about companies on this Website, whether or not they own stock in the company. You are free to contribute, or not to contribute, as you choose. PROVIDED, HOWEVER, A USER SHOULD NOT SHARE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT A COMPANY THAT THEY ARE NOT PERMITTED TO SHARE, EITHER CONTRACTUALLY OR LEGALLY. We do not assume any responsibility for regulating what users say about a company.

The freedom and openness of cyberspace from which we all benefit can make us the target of misconduct, including fraud. People with ill intent could negatively affect one or more Discussion Groups. Please proceed with caution and do your homework. Be wary of those who post hyperlinks to unknown and questionable websites since by clicking on them you will be leaving this Website and taken to what could be a harmful location on the Internet. Users sometimes post messages on this Website, including in Discussion Groups, that are misleading, deceptive, or deliberately incorrect. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has published information on various fraudulent activities that they have seen and have shared their findings online https://www.sec.gov/investor/alerts/enforcement.
