  5. Any Information you enter on the Website may be transferred outside the European Economic Area and to other parts of the world including the United States of America for the purposes of storage, processing and maintenance. By submitting your information to MT4i, you expressly consent to this transfer.
  6. By using this Website you are agreeing that you bear full responsibility for your own research, trading and investment decisions and you also agree that MT4i shall not be liable for any decision made or action taken by you or others in reliance upon any Information published by MT4i. The Information available on or through this Website is only for your general information and use and is not intended to address your particular requirements. In particular, any Information is in the nature of general information and is for general informational purposes only. The Information is not personalised for you or any other recipient, does not constitute any form of advice or recommendation or investment advice by MT4i or other users and is not and should not be considered to be an individualized investment recommendation. Such information is not intended to be relied upon by you in making (or refraining to make) any specific investment or other decisions.
  7. Subject to Clause 8 below, Information on the Website including especially that posted by advertisers or users is not verified by MT4i and MT4i cannot and does not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the Information or its usefulness for any particular purpose. Accordingly you acknowledge that this Website may contain incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate, misleading and/or false Information, is for your general use only, and should not be relied upon in any way without first taking appropriate professional advice from licensed advisers. MT4i is not responsible or liable in any manner for, and makes no representations or warranties of any kind regarding, the accuracy, completeness, quality, reliability or usefulness of the Information. Any claim by any user or other third party that Information has been or is verified, checked, supported or otherwise endorsed by MT4i (“Verified”) is, unless otherwise clearly confirmed in writing by MT4i, false and should not, under any circumstances, be relied upon by you. You also acknowledge that you will not claim, infer or publish a statement that MT4i has Verified any Information unless it has been Verified in accordance with Clause 8 below.
  8. MT4i has a verification process for confirming that trading statements published on the Website have been Verified. This verification process is explained on the Website. You should note, however, that even where an account has been confirmed as ‘Verified’, it is possible, for reasons beyond MT4i's control, for the account to still be falsified. This is because brokers can run demo accounts on their live servers (a broker can run a demo account which is reported to MetaTrader 4 with the IsDemo() function returning False, and where the connection is to a live server). It is therefore impossible for anyone outside the broker, including MT4i, to be 100% certain whether an account is demo or real. You accept that MT4i can only therefore use the phrase Verification subject to this limitation and MT4i cannot and does not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the Information or its usefulness for any particular purpose including where such Information is classified by MT4i as ‘Verified’.
  9. As part of the Verification of trading record process referred to in Clause 8 above, you will be asked to submit your trading account Investor Read Only Password to MT4i. You acknowledge that Investor Read Only Passwords are sensitive information and that it is technically possible for holders of your Investor Read Only Password to copy the trades on your account without your knowledge. MT4i will hold your Investor Read Only Password in accordance with its Privacy Policy but cannot be responsible for any loss you may suffer should you give your Investor Read Only Password to third parties. Similarly should you submit your Master Account Password instead of your Investor Read Only Password in error, whilst MT4i will also hold this data in accordance with its Privacy Policy, MT4i cannot be held responsible for any loss you may suffer including should you give your Master Account Password to third parties.
