Terms of Service & Privacy Policy

Last update: March 3rd, 2019

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Welcome to QuantGeeks. QuantGeeks LLC and/or its affiliates (hereafter QuantGeeks), provides a service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service (“TOS”), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: http://QuantGeeks.io

In addition, when using particular QuantGeeks services, you shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules (including but not limited to our Spam Policy) are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.

2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

QuantGeeks allows customers to search for and purchase trading signals, trading strategies, and trading newsletters, and information and analysis about this data. In addition, QuantGeeks allows vendors of these products to find new customers and to distribute material to them. You also understand and agree that the Service may include advertisements and that these advertisements may be necessary for QuantGeeks to provide the Service. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from Collective2, such as service announcements and administrative messages, and that these communications are considered part of QuantGeeks membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new QuantGeeks properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided “AS-IS” and that QuantGeeks assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.

You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.

2A. NO FEE FOR PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR TRADING STRATEGIES.

QuantGeeks does not charge any fees to people who want to become members of the site, nor does it charge any fees to people who want to use the site to find trading strategies. Once a user finds a strategy to which he wants to subscribe, the user will be charged a monthly price which is set by the trading-strategy creator.

2B. FEE FOR SELLING TRADING STRATEGIES.

If you provide trading strategies through QuantGeeks and you successfully sell these strategies such that QuantGeeks processes the transaction on your behalf, then QuantGeeks charges a fee for each sale we conduct on your behalf. That fee is listed below in “Fee schedule.”

The way we collect this fee is as follow. Each month, on a monthly cycle, we calculate how much we have collected on your behalf for transactions that are 45 days or older. We deduct a percentage of this amount as our fee, and we remit the rest back to you. We do not remove additional amounts for the standard credit card processing “discount rate.”

Because of the risk of charge-backs, refunds, and unsatisfied customers, we remit your funds only after a transaction is 45 days old. However, we do remit on a monthly cycle. This means, essentially, that your first remittance from us may take over a month to arrive, but once you receive your first remittance, you will receive new remittances each month.

Fee schedule. AutoTrader: Our fee is 1% of the monthly Coinbase PRO account balance profit amount. If the bot is in a trade during the 30 day calculation period, the monthly invoice will be issued after the bot terminates its most recent trade. Signals: As per signal subscription cost. Charged monthly. All other: 50% of vendor provided signal subscriptions.

Minimum runtime. You can always turn any bot off at any time. However, if you like to switch between bots, we request that a minimum of at least 1 month has past before switching to a new bot. Any mid-month terminations after that first month will see the profits calculated on a prorated basis.

Refunds and exceptional charges. If your subscriber is unhappy and demands a refund of fees paid to us on your behalf, or if an unhappy customer calls his bank and as a result we are charged a special fee – called a “chargeback” in credit card jargon – then we will remove that fee from your next remittance amount or any future remittance amount until this fee has been repaid. Thus we encourage you, as a strategy vendor, to strive to satisfy your subscriber customers. QuantGeeks is charged by its merchant processing service a percentage of each transaction amount, even if the amount is eventually refunded. We are also charged a percentage of the refund amount. Thus, we pass these costs along to you. If your customers demands and receives a refund, we will charge you a refund fee based on the initial transaction amount. That refund fee is 7.5% of the initial charge. We therefore encourage you to provide excellent customer service to your subscribers so that your refunds are kept to a minimum. All refunds and fees may be charged against current or future remittances that we owe you. If the amount of refunds that we pay out on your behalf exceeds the fees that we collect on your behalf, we may at our discretion bill your credit card for the amount we are unable to debit from your QuantGeeks account in order to cover the cost of any refunds we have paid to your customers.
