Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you hereby authorize SnapTrade to:
- act as your agent to access your accounts, transfer your assets within and between accounts, execute trades on, and transmit instructions to and from, any Trading Platform(s) with whom you have any account(s);
- share your personal information and account data with Partner Applications and Trading Platforms; and
- otherwise take any action that is instructed by a Partner Application through the SnapTrade API

- You are the rightful owner of the log-in credentials associated with your accounts on any Trading Platforms, and any related data and securities; and
- You have all necessary rights to enter into this Agreement and grant all rights granted to SnapTrade hereunder.
SnapTrade is a software platform that transmits instructions made at the request of an End User via Partner Applications. SnapTrade has no fiduciary duty to any End User. SnapTrade does not provide investment advisory services or brokerage services in any manner or form. Investment products are subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. Past performance is not indicative of future results, prices/invested sum is subject to market risks which may result in appreciation or depreciation. The ownership of any investment decision(s) shall exclusively vest with you after analyzing all possible risk factors and by exercise of your independent discretion. SnapTrade shall not be liable or held liable for any consequences thereof.
SnapTrade relies on data passed through the Partner Applications and the Trading Platforms’ application programming interfaces (“Trading Platform APIs”) for correctness. We cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any information, including prices, product images, specifications, availability, and services provided by or through a Trading Platform API and/or a Partner Application (collectively, “Third-Party Data”). We reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.
SNAPTRADE MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AND SNAPTRADE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. SNAPTRADE’S SOFTWARE AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE,” EXCLUSIVE OF ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE ACCESS OR USE. SNAPTRADE DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY HARM OR DAMAGES CAUSED BY ANY TRADING PLATFORM, PARTNER APPLICATION OR OTHER THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER. USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT END USER’S OWN RISK.
Limitation of Liability
Liability of Third Parties: In the event that any inaccuracy in any Third-Party Data results in damages to you, you hereby agree to bring any claim for such damages against the Partner or Trading Platform who was responsible for the inaccuracy, and not against SnapTrade.
No Consequential Damages: SnapTrade, its directors, employees, partners, agents, representatives, suppliers, or affiliates, shall not be liable for any loss or damage, direct or indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, including without limitation, economic loss, loss or damage to electronic media or data, goodwill, or other intangible losses, resulting from (i) your access to or use of the Service; (ii) your inability to access or use the Service; (iii) any conduct or content of any third-party on or related to the Service; (iv) any content or Third-Party Data obtained from or through the Service; and (v) the unauthorized access to, use of or alteration of your transmissions or content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other claim in law, whether or not we have been informed of the possibility of such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
Limitation of Liability: NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS, SNAPTRADE’S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE CUMULATIVE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICE OR THESE TERMS SHALL NOT EXCEED THE LESSER OF (A) ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100.00) AND (B) THE TOTAL DOLLAR VALUE OF ALL TRADES EXECUTED BY THE END USER VIA THE SNAPTRADE API IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE OF SUCH LIABILITY. THIS LIMITATION ON LIABILITY WILL APPLY WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS. IF APPLICABLE LAW LIMITS THE APPLICABILITY OF THIS SECTION, SNAPTRADE’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Limitation on Remedies. No action or claim of any type relating to the Service or these Terms may be brought or made by any End User more than one (1) year after the date such End User first has knowledge of the basis for the action or claim.
Waiver and Release. You hereby release SnapTrade from any and all liability arising from any loss or damage sustained by such End User resulting from (a) any acts or omissions of such End User, (b) any acts or omissions of any Trading Platforms or Partner Applications, and (c) any inaccuracies in any Third-Party Data. End Users who are California residents, or residents of any jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding general waiver and release must, as a condition of using the Service, waive the applicability of California Civil Code Section 1542 for unknown claims which states: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASING PARTY." Each End User hereby waives this section of the California Civil Code and any similar provision in law, regulation or code in any applicable jurisdiction that has the same effect or intent. Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, for End Users in a jurisdiction that has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with any release of claims or limitation on liability set forth herein, then SnapTrade’s liability is limited to the maximum extent possible by law. Specifically, solely in those jurisdictions not allowed, SnapTrade does not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; (b) fraudulent misrepresentation or intentional misconduct; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless SnapTrade, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and their officers, directors, employees, contractors, representatives and agents from and against any and all claims, causes of action, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) and all amounts paid in settlement arising from or relating to your use of the Service, breach of these Terms, or violation of any laws or rights of any third parties including, without limitation, infringement of the intellectual property rights of any third parties. SnapTrade may, at its election, assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which an End User has agreed to indemnify SnapTrade and each End User agrees to assist and cooperate with SnapTrade in the defense or settlement of any such matters. Without limiting the foregoing, no End User may settle any indemnifiable claim without SnapTrade’s prior written consent.
