The Lead-Lag Report
The Lead-Lag Report provides investors and finance enthusiasts with award-winning market research designed to provide powerful financial market insights and investment strategies. The research behind The Lead-Lag Report has received the Charles H. Dow Award (2014, 2016), the National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM) Wagner Award (2014, 2015), and other reviews and praise. The Lead-Lag Report is provided solely by Lead-Lag Publishing, LLC (the “Company,” “we,” or “us”). The Company is not affiliated with any other fund or entity and is an independent organization.
Please read the following Terms carefully before accessing or using the Site. By accessing or using the Site, you consent to and agree to be bound by the Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you should not access or use the Site. Please review these Terms regularly because the Company may update or change the Terms from time-to-time.
Throughout these Terms, the phrase “Content” refers to any text, materials, documents, images, graphics, logos, design, audio, video, or any other information downloaded from, visible on, or otherwise provided or obtained from the Site. Some Content is available only to authorized, paid subscribers of the Site. While the following Terms apply to all visitors and users of the Site, Paragraph 5 expressly governs authorized, paid subscribers of the Site and the Company’s services.
1. SITE USE AND CONTENT. You may view or print pages from the Site solely for personal use. Authorized subscribers may also access, view, print, or download Content from the Site for personal use. You may not otherwise use, modify, copy, print, display, reproduce, distribute, or publish any Content from the Site without the express prior written consent of the Company.
2. NOT INVESTMENT ADVICE. THE COMPANY DOES NOT INTEND TO PROVIDE ANY INVESTMENT ADVICE RELATING TO ITSELF OR ANY COMPANY IDENTIFIED ON THE SITE. All opinions and views mentioned in The Lead-Lag Report constitute our judgments as of the date of writing and are subject to change at any time. Information within this material is not intended to be used as a primary basis for investment decisions and should not be construed as advice meeting the particular investment needs of any individual investor. Trading signals produced by The Lead-Lag Report are independent of other services provided by the Company or its affiliates, and positioning of accounts under their management may differ. The Lead-Lag Report is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell, a solicitation to buy, or a recommendation regarding any securities transaction. The Lead-Lag Report also does not offer to provide advisory or other services in any jurisdiction. The information contained on this Site or in The Lead-Lag Report should not be construed as financial or investment advice, tax advice, or legal advice on any subject matter. Investing involves risk, including loss of principal, and past performance may not be indicative of future results. You are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, security, or strategy, or any other product or service, is appropriate for you based on your investment objectives and personal financial situation. Finally, you are urged to consult with an attorney or tax professional regarding all legal or tax considerations applicable to you.
3. PERFORMANCE TESTING. The Company uses backtesting of trading signals to analyze and measure performance. Backtested performance has inherent limitations, including, but not limited to:
· Hypothetical models are designed with the benefit of hindsight after the performance of the markets during the relevant time period was already known.
· Backtested historical performance do not show the results of actual trading. No inference is made that subscribers would have the same performance results if they had used The Lead-Lag Report to invest for any part of this period.
· Because backtested performance does not represent actual trading, it may not reflect material economic and market factors, as well as the impact of cash flows, liquidity constraints, investment guidelines or restrictions and fees and expenses that would apply to actual trading.
· Backtested results assume that asset allocations would not change over time or in response to market conditions, which might have occurred in the case of actual account trading.
· The annual return information of the hypothetical portfolios assumes the reinvestment of dividends but does not include the deduction of fees or expenses which would reduce returns. Returns would be lower if advisory fees and other expenses were deducted.
As with all performance testing, past performance is not indicative of future results. The markets or The Lead-Lag Report recommendations may perform better or worse than shown in hypothetical backtested models. Investors who invest in the manner outlined by The Lead-Lag Report potentially may lose money.

5. SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE, USER ACCOUNT, SECURITY, AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION.
(a) SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE. Certain Content, products, and services available through the Site require registration for account access and payment of fees (the “Subscription Service”). The Subscription Service is available by clicking on the login at www.leadlagreport.com/static/login. For the Subscription Service, you must provide the Company (and its authorized third-party billing partner(s)) with certain account-specific information to authenticate, protect, and use the services, including a user identification name (“User ID”), valid email address, and password for your Subscription Service account (collectively, the “User Account”). You also will be required to authenticate yourself for billing purposes by providing your name, mailing address, valid email address, payment method, and such other information required to process payment. Finally, if your User Account is held by an entity or otherwise permits more than one authorized user, you may be asked to designate each individual who has permission to access to your User Account (each authorized individual, an “Authorized User”). You may never use another person’s User ID or User Account without the Company’s written permission. When your Subscription Service is linked to one or more User Accounts or to multiple Authorized Users, the Company may act on the oral, written, or electronic instructions of any Authorized User regarding your service for all such accounts. It is your responsibility to notify the Company if an Authorized User should no longer be given access to a User Account through the Subscription Service.
(b) BILLING AND PAYMENT
(i) 14-DAY FREE TRIAL. All Subscription Services are eligible for a fourteen (14) day free trial. To avoid the requirement to pay a subscription fee, you must cancel the Subscription Services by emailing [email protected] no later than 5pm US Eastern time on the fourteenth (14th) day of the trial period. Failure to cancel during the trial period obligates you to pay for the Subscription Service you selected.
(ii) SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE TERM. You may select either a month-to-month or an annual Subscription Service term. All fees are payable in advance for the applicable Subscription Service. All Subscription Services will renew automatically for the selected term unless you provide notice of cancellation at least ten (10) days prior to the renewal date (see “Cancellation by You” below).
(iii) CANCELLATION BY YOU. To cancel any Subscription Service, you must email the Company at [email protected] at least ten (10) days prior to the next applicable renewal date for the Subscription Service. If you cancel a month-to-month Subscription Service at least ten (10) days in advance, your Subscription Service will end on the last day of the month in which you provided notice of cancellation. If you do not provide at least ten (10) days advance notice, you will be billed for an additional month and your cancellation will be effective the last day of the month following the month in which your cancellation notice was received. If you cancel an annual Subscription Service during the initial 12-month term, the Subscription Service will be deemed cancelled on the last day of the term and the Company will retain the entire fee for the annual term. If you cancel an annual Subscription Service after such service has automatically renewed, the cancellation will be effective on the last day of the month in which such cancellation notice is received, and the Company will refund the Authorized User a pro-rated portion of the annual Subscription Service fee based on the remaining, unused portion of Subscription Service term. For example, if the annual Subscription Service automatically renews on August 1, and you provide notice of cancellation on August 15, the Company will retain 1/12 of the annual fee (for the month of August) and refund 11/12 of the annual fee to the Authorized User on the User Account. All pro-rated refunds for an annual Subscription Service will be payable within sixty (60) days after receipt of cancellation notice.
(iv) TERMINATION BY THE COMPANY. The Company reserves the right to terminate your use of the Subscription Service at any time and for any reason, including without limitation violation of these Terms, failure to timely pay applicable fees, or User Account inactivity, without notice to you. If the Company terminates your account for failure to pay applicable fees or any other violation of these Terms, you will forfeit any and all fees paid for the Subscription Service. For all other terminations by the Company, the Company may retain all fees paid through the end of the month in which such termination occurred.
(v) THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSING. The Company uses a third-party payment processing service to authorize and collect payments for your Subscription Service. Upon requesting access to the Subscription Service, the Company will provide you with a link or other reference page to the Company’s authorized third-party payment processing service. All authorization and processing of your payment will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the payment processor. The Company does not control or cannot be held liable for the security or performance of any third-party payment processor. You are solely responsible for updating your payment method and information.
(c) USER ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your User ID, password, and User Account information by utilizing a Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) connection. Accordingly, your User ID, password and User Account information are encrypted using an SSL connection and are not expected to be read in an intelligible form as they travel to the Site. However, you are ultimately responsible for protecting your User ID, password, and User Account information from disclosure to third-parties. You are required to take reasonable precautions to safeguard your User ID and password and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to notify the Company immediately of any unauthorized use of your User ID, password, or User Account, or any other breach of security by emailing the Company [email protected]. You are solely responsible for any activity that occurs with respect to your User ID and User Account. While we provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee that information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, error, interception or interruption.
(d) ACCURATE INFORMATION. In creating and using your User Account on the Site, you agree to: (i) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself on any registration or billing form required on the Site (such information being the “Registration Data”); and (ii) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or the Company has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, the Company has the right to suspend or terminate your User Account and refuse any and all current or future use of your User Account.
(e) RELIANCE BY COMPANY. You authorize Company to rely on your User ID and password to identify you when you use the Subscription Service, and as signature authorization for any payment made using the Subscription Service. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all payments you make using the Subscription Service and for paying all late charges or penalties. You also acknowledge and agree that if you permit another person or persons to use the Subscription Service or give them your User ID and/or password, you are responsible for any payment that such person incurs while using your User Account, even if the person exceeds your authorization or is not an Authorized User.
(f) SECURITY. The Company is committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of information about you and your User Account. The Company uses, and may in the future use, several different security methods to protect your User Account information, including:
• You can only access the Subscription Service with certain browsers that have high security standards.
• The Subscription Service will automatically log off if prolonged periods of inactivity occur.
• Your session may terminate if you navigate away from the Subscription Service to another website.
(g) ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION.
(i) Email and Online Message Center. When you enroll in the Subscription Service, you must designate a valid, primary email address that will be used for receiving electronic communication. To the extent the Company maintains an online message center now or in the future, such exchange of communications shall be considered an electronic communication and may be utilized by the Company for providing you notices pursuant to these Terms, as permitted by Applicable Law, or generally regarding your User Account(s). The Company will never send you email requesting confidential information such as your User ID, password, credit card, or bank account information, and you should NEVER respond to any email requesting such information. If you receive such an email purportedly from Company requesting your personal or confidential information, do not respond to the email and notify COMPANY by forwarding the email to [email protected].
(ii) Usage of Electronic Communication. By your enrollment in the Subscription Service, you agree to receive these Terms and any disclosures or notices required by Applicable Law and all other communications electronically to the email address you designate in your User Account. You also agree the Company may respond to any communication you send to Company with an electronic communication, regardless of whether your original communication with Company was via electronic communication. Any electronic communication Company sends to you will be considered received within one (1) calendar days after the date such communication is sent by computer servers utilized by Company to the email address you designate in your account profile or posted to Company’s online message center (if applicable).
