THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify, discontinue, or terminate the availability of the Platform, or to modify the Agreement, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify the Agreement, we will post the modification on the Platform or provide you with notice of the modification at the last email address you gave us. By continuing to access or use the Platform after we have posted a modification on the Platform or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Agreement. If the modified Agreement is not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Platform.
The Platform is available for individuals aged 18 years or older. If you are 18 or older, but under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, you should review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understands it. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to deny you access to the Platform or any portion thereof, without notice and without reason.
2. OPENING AN ACCOUNT
When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each account can be used by only one individual. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your log-in information, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Platform using your log-in information. We reserve the right to decline to open your account for any reason. We further reserve the right to delete your account or require you to change your password at any time and for any reason and shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage caused by such action (provided that you will not lose any stock owned by you in the deletion of your account).
In order to use certain features of the Platform, you will be required to open and maintain an account with a participating third-party broker-dealer (a “Brokerage Account”). Your Brokerage Account is subject to a separate agreement directly between you and the applicable third-party broker-dealer. BITS does not process any Transactions, or award any Stock Rewards (defined below) unless and until you have opened and linked your Brokerage Account; provided, however, that any Transactions made in the one-week period prior to your opening and linking a Brokerage Account (so long as you have opened an account with BITS) will be processed at the time you link your Brokerage Account to the Platform.
When you make purchases with Brands (“Transactions”), you will earn rewards in accordance with Section 3 below. Currently, we are offering this program at no cost to you. In the future, you may upgrade to our premium version for a fee, which will permit you to increase your Brands, and enjoy additional features and functionalities of our Platform, such as monthly market reports, retirement accounts, and more.
3. TRANSACTIONS; STOCK REWARDS
Soon, you will be able to sell your securities at any time by entering a sell order with BITS via the Platform. All proceeds from sales will go into your BITS account. If you wish to withdraw funds, you must provide electronic payment instructions for your bank account. You understand that certain types of payment card rewards and dividends may have tax implications and that all tax liabilities are your responsibility. Dividends earned from your Stock Rewards are automatically reinvested by BITS on your behalf, or otherwise transferred to your account. Before accepting a Stock Reward, or selling any securities, you are urged to consult your own tax advisor with respect to the tax consequences of your participation in the BITS services. Please be advised that BITS charges $1.00 per ACH transfer from you Brokerage Account to your bank account.
BITS reserves the right to limit the amount of money you can earn from Transactions, or the amount that you are entitled to spend on Stock Rewards within certain periods of time, or may implement other restrictions related to Stock Rewards. If you attempt to use or earn Stock Rewards in a fraudulent or otherwise illegal way, we may cancel all unused dollar amounts in your account and cancel your account without liability to you.
You can access information about your account, including the Stock Rewards in your account and the status and history of your Transactions, via the Platform.
4. RISKS AND DISCLAIMERS.
IN ANY SECURITIES TRANSACTION, BITS GENERALLY WILL BE ACTING AS YOUR AGENT OR BROKER. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE AND OUR REGISTERED PERSONNEL WILL MAKE NO RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT ANY SECURITIES AND WILL NOT DISCUSS THE APPROPRIATENESS OF ANY TRANSACTION WITH, OR THE SECURITIES OF, ANY OF YOUR SELECTED BRANDS, AND WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY TAX, ACCOUNTING, OR LEGAL ADVICE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALL INVESTMENT DECISIONS ARE MADE SOLELY BY YOU.
AS WITH ALL EQUITY SECURITIES, THE SECURITIES REWARDED THROUGH THE PROGRAM MAY GAIN OR LOSE VALUE AND THERE IS A RISK THAT THEY COULD LOSE ALL OF THEIR VALUE. BITS IS NOT LIABLE FOR LOSS DUE TO MARKET FLUCTUATIONS. THE PARTICIPATING BRANDS MAY CHANGE OR TERMINATE THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM OR AWARDS PROVIDED UNDER THE PROGRAM, AT ANY TIME. ALTHOUGH YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REDEEM OR PURCHASE NEW SHARES IF ONE OF YOUR SELECTED BRAND’S PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM IS TERMINATED, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RETAIN THE SHARES OF THAT BRAND’S SECURITIES YOU HAVE RECEIVED OR PURCHASED IN YOUR BITS ACCOUNT AND BE ABLE TO SELL SUCH SHARES AS DESCRIBED HEREIN.
BITS DOES NOT COLLECT ANY FUNDS, EXECUTE ANY TRANSACTIONS, OR OTHERWISE ACT AS A BROKER-DEALER, MONEY TRANSMITTER, MONEY SERVICES BUSINESS, BANK ACCOUNT, BROKERAGE ACCOUNT, OR OTHER FINANCIAL ACCOUNT. BITS MERELY COMMUNICATES YOUR TRANSACTIONS TO BROKER-DEALERS THAT COMPLETE THE SECURITY PURCHASES ON YOUR BEHALF. ALTHOUGH YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIND INFORMATION ABOUT INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH OUR PLATFORM, WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO ANY TRANSACTION REGARDING ANY SUCH OPPORTUNITY. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT IN CONNECTION WITH EACH SECURITY TRANSACTION, YOU CONDUCT YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE.
ALL MESSAGES SENT USING BITS’S PLATFORM ARE SELF-DIRECTED BY YOU TO YOUR BROKER-DEALER. ALL ORDERS ARE EXECUTED BY BROKER-DEALERS AND BITS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ORDER ROUTING OR EXECUTION OF ANY TRANSACTION.

15. BINDING ARBITRATION
In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement or the Platform (each, a “Dispute”), either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. As set forth in Section 17 below, nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests.
16. CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
17. EQUITABLE RELIEF
You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of New York, Borough of Manhattan for purposes of any such action by us.
