TradingFloor.com is owned and provided by Saxo Bank A/S (the "Provider"), which is a licensed Danish bank regulated by The Danish Financial Authority. Where you are not a direct customer of the Provider but are a customer of an affiliate of the Provider, you are permitted to access TradingFloor.com for the Services via www.TradingFloor.com and/or through a hyperlink available on such affiliate’s own website directing you onwards to www.TradingFloor.com. Where you have accessed TradingFloor.com through the hyperlink, the use of that hyperlink is subject to terms and conditions as set out in that affiliate’s website. Unless otherwise provided, such terms and conditions are likely to contain terms that include (but may not be limited to) terms that are materially the same as for the use of hyperlinks in TradingFloor.com as noted above providing therefore at least to the effect that the affiliate’s site will contain links to the TradingFloor.com site owned by the Provider and over which (a) the affiliate has no control; (b) the links are provided by the affiliate to you for your convenience only and do not amount to an endorsement or recommendation of the TradingFloor.com site or any of the Services and (c) the affiliate accepts no liability in relation to TradingFloor.com site or any of the Services and should you choose to access and/or use TradingFloor.com site or any of the Services, you do so at your own risk.

Please be reminded that information accessible through Social Trading disclosed or commented on via the Services are not intended and are not appropriate to be regarded or classified as an option for any person to effect managing of investments for you or as advice or recommendation to you to be relied on for your trading or investing. Instead the Services and the information accessible via the use of the Services is intended to be and should simply be seen as no more than another ancillary tool provided by executing brokers to facility purely customer driven and responsible trading. You should never simply use information accessible through Social Trading. You are to specifically also note that neither the Provider nor or any of its affiliates and their employees and agents are, with respect to any information attributable or sourced from any of them, investment or financial advisers nor are they and any of them willing to provide or be responsible for the provision of any financial advice or recommendation upon which you will rely for any trading or investment . If you make investment decisions in reliance on information which is available as part of the TradingFloor.com or as a result of the use of the TradingFloor.com (including any Social trading), you do so at your own discretion, decision and risk and neither the Provider, affiliates of the Provider or their respective employees and agents will therefore be liable for any losses that you may sustain. You are reminded that you should not make any investment decision, including entering into any social trading activity, without first conducting your own research. You are solely and exclusively responsible for determining whether any investment, or strategy, or any other product or service is appropriate or suitable for you based on your investment objectives and personal and financial situation and should not consider the trades undertaken by any other trader on TradingFloor.com as any form of recommendation or investment advice to be relied on as is but only after you have made your own independent checks and analysis and are satisfied on making a trade based on the trading and/or comments made by any other trader on TradingFloor.com as your own decision and at your sole risk.
Neither the Provider nor any of its affiliates (where relevant) can guarantee that trades based on another traders trading activity will be able to be executed whether due to limitations relating to your Account or the market generally or otherwise. Please also note that there is likely to be a lag between the time any trader enters his trade and the time you yourself may seek to enter an order (even a corresponding order) for your Account based on that trader’s trade. Market conditions can change during that time lag. You must in any event ensure that you are both able and prepared to bear the loss of the entire amount of any trade which you make based or by reference to the trades of another trader in addition to ensuring the suitability of such trades for yourself. This is because you are fully and solely responsible for any losses you may sustain on your Account as a result.
Market and other conditions will differ for each person, and so gains and losses experienced by traders as may be inferred from their trading information accessible though the Services may be materially different from your own trading even if based on theirs. Without prejudice to the terms and conditions above, no aspect of the TradingFloor.com hereunder or any material made available on it is intended to be or should be construed as, advice from either the Provider or any of its affiliates whether on investments, tax or other related matters of any kind. You should not consider any content and/or feature of the social trading service to be a substitute for your own due diligence and informed judgment or professional investment or financial advice. As noted and you agreed above, the trading or trading information you may view or have access to should simply be taken as facts of such trading having been done and not either as a representation or guarantee of the resulting, continuing or future performance of the trading in any direction If you choose to engage in transactions based on content on the TradingFloor.com and/or elect to copy specific traders and/or trades, then such decision and transactions and any consequences flowing therefrom are your sole responsibility. While an individual participant may effect a transaction which may be subsequently copied by other traders, such trades amount to nothing more than exchanges between persons who may be anonymous or unidentifiable or may simply reflect the execution of a trade by such traders. The provider does not provide investment advice directly, indirectly, implicitly, or in any manner whatsoever by making such information and/or features available to you.
