Trading fees on the Barter West are clear and simple:
1.0 PROVISION OF SERVICES
1.1 We will provide online and broker managed Trade Services to you (the "Account Holder") in exchange for payment of transaction and monthly account fees pursuant to compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
1.2 The Trade Service is defined as the use by the Account Holder of website access, software access, and information services provided by your trade exchange's brokers and trade consultants. The Service may also include access to information services provided through the Internet or by third party providers (collectively, "Non-Barter West Content").
1.3 The Account Holder recognizes that Barter West has no control over the availability, content and performance of its website. Barter West does not warrant or support any Non-Barter West content. The Account Holder recognizes that Barter West content cannot be screened, censored or safeguarded by Barter West with regard to copyright, obscenity, integrity, safety or reliability. The Account Holder assumes all risk and liability when accessing the Barter West website and agrees to indemnify Barter West in accordance with paragraph 4.0 below.
2.0 USE OF SERVICES
2.1 The Account Holder agrees to maintain and keep account log-in information including but not limited to the account name, federal ID and password secure and private.
2.2 The Barter West website is for participating trade commerce exchange clients only and is not to be used by non-participating exchange members. The Account Holder therefore agrees not to share the access or log-in information to the account. The Account Holder understands that non-compliance with this provision is cause for account termination.
2.3 The Account Holder agrees not to use, via the Internet, any process, program, or tool designed to discover the access information of account holders on Barter West. The Account Holder agrees not to use the Service to make unauthorized attempts to access the accounts of others.
2.4 The Account Holder agrees to use the Service only as permitted by applicable local, state, and federal law. The Account Holder agrees, therefore, not to use the service to plan, incite, promote, facilitate, solicit or conduct any business or activity that is prohibited by law.
2.5 The Account Holder acknowledges that Barter West is a commercial entity and that Barter West is connected to one or several Internet Service Providers ("ISPs"). The ISPs may only be used by Account Holders to conduct legal business. This business should, however, not impinge upon the use of the Service by other account holders. The Service may not be used to send unsolicited advertising or promotional materials to other users. Other prohibited activities include, but are not limited to, propagation of computer worms and viruses, and using the network to make unauthorized entry to any other machine accessible via the network.
3.0 NO WARRANTIES
3.1 To the extent possible, Barter West will make every effort to provide accurate information through its proprietary services. The account holder acknowledges that information available through non-Barter West content may not be accurate. In any event, as to both Barter West and Non-Barter West Content, Barter West makes no warranty, express or implied, regarding the quality, accuracy, or validity of data and/or information available, that access to the service will be available at any particular time, that operation of the service will be uninterrupted or error free, or that any particular result or information will be obtained. Member accounts are offered on an "as is" basis without warranties of any kind, other than warranties which are incapable of exclusion, waiver, or restriction under the law applicable hereto.
3.2 USE OF INFORMATION, PROGRAMS OR OTHER MATERIALS OBTAINED FROM OR THROUGH THE SERVICE IS AT THE SOLE RISK OF THE ACCOUNT HOLDER.
Operation of this service carries inherent risks to Barter West because Barter West literally cannot control all aspects of the Service at all times. Accordingly, by acknowledging this Agreement, you agree to indemnify Barter West for any damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys fees, that accrue to Barter West as a result of or arising out of your activities on the Service including, but not limited to, any claims for violation of any copyright, trademark, or protected material, any claim of defamation, slander, libel, disparagement or the like, any use of the Service for illegal purposes, or any use of the service to send or receive obscene materials.
