Extent and availability of the services offered
Deep Alpha Research reserves the right to change the structure, the extent and the functionality of the website and the app anytime. If important features which were still available when the contract was concluded, are cancelled, the user has an extraordinary right of dismissal. Deep Alpha Research strives for the highest availability possible. Yet, the availability can be limited due to maintenance work or technical difficulties. With his/her consent to the terms of service, the user agrees to these short-term deficiencies, no matter if they are attributable to Deep Alpha Research or arise from the sphere of influence of third parties. Furthermore, the user is required to use technologies [e.g.,regarding his/her browser, his/her operating system etc.] which are up to date. Otherwise, some services provided by Deep Alpha Research may not be able to be used.
Paid functions / Premium subscriptions / Subscription cancellation
The user account can be cancelled and subsequently deleted by the user or Deep Alpha Research anytime. Such deletion can be requested by text or in writing [fax, e-mail, or letter] to Deep Alpha Research. Deep Alpha Research will comply with this request within 48 hours. In this case – as with the cancellation of paid subscriptions – the exact address or e-mail address of the customer is required, so that his account can be assigned without doubt. Conversely, Deep Alpha Research is also obliged to comply with these formal requirements. In case of termination of the account by the user, the claim to any chargeable functional extensions already purchased shall lapse; however, the means of payment shall also no longer be debited on the next billing date. The same applies to a termination on the part of Deep Alpha Research, provided that the user is responsible for the reason for termination. If this is not the case, the user shall be entitled to a refund of the purchase price for the activated chargeable functions, insofar as these can no longer be used.
Further obligations of the user
Procedure in the event of a breach of the terms of service
In the event of a violation of these terms of service by the user, Deep Alpha Research is entitled, depending on the severity of the violation, to issue a warning, to block the user temporarily or permanently or to terminate the contractual relationship for cause and to prohibit a repeated registration. If damages occur due to the intentional or negligent breach of duty by the user, the user is obligated to compensate Deep Alpha Research.
Liability of Deep Alpha Research
Only such damages are compensable, which are caused by culpable violation of the major contractual obligations or significant accessory contractual obligations, or which are due to gross negligence or intent on the part of Deep Alpha Research. If the liability is based on the violation of a significant contractual obligation without intent or gross negligence, the liability of Deep Alpha Research is limited to those damages that could have been expected at the time of the conclusion of the contract due to the respective circumstances. Loss of data as well as the recovery of data will only trigger liability if the loss could not have been prevented by regular precautions, in particular the regular [48-hour] making of backup copies. Deep Alpha Research is not liable for the accuracy and timeliness of capital market data obtained from external service providers. Deep Alpha Research does not provide investment advice, but provides a tool to give the user transparency to compare and self evaluate performance metrics of assets across industries. The user remains fully responsible for his investment decisions. Furthermore, the liability does not extend to damages that can bet attributed to the sphere of the user. Liability for consequential damages [in particular: damages to third parties and loss of profit] is excluded. Statutory liability which cannot be waived by contract – e.g., under the German Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz] or regarding damages resulting from injury to life, physical integrity, or health – shall not be affected by the limitations of liability mentioned in the terms of service of Deep Alpha Research. All limitations of liability stated in this part of the terms of service also apply to the legal representatives and vicarious agents employed by Deep Alpha Research.
Possibility of changes to the terms of service
Deep Alpha Research is entitled to amend the terms of service at any time. If such a change occurs, Deep Alpha Research will inform the user of this via e-mail. If the user does not object within two weeks, this shall be deemed to be his/her consent in the sense that he/she agrees to the application of the amended conditions to already existing contracts. Again, the period for objection starts the day after the notification e-mail is sent to the user. In this e-mail, the user must be informed of the possibility of objection, the applicable deadline, and the consequences of failure to object. If the user objects, he shall have a contractual right of termination, which entitles him/her to terminate the contract immediately.
The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS platform). This can be found at: www.ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. Deep Alpha Research is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
Applicable law, jurisdiction clause
All contractual agreements between Deep Alpha Research and the contractual partner are subject to the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. This also applies to users outside of Germany. If the user has his habitual residence in a member state of the European Union, the terms of service do not restrict him/her from invoking mandatory local law or a court jurisdiction that is not at the contractual disposal. If such a case exists, the invalid provision shall be replaced by a provision which is compatible with the law and which comes closest to the economic intentions which the contracting parties originally pursued with the invalid provision. In the event of disputes arising from the contractual relationship, if the contractional partner of Deep Alpha Research is a business as defined in the German Commercial Code [HGB], a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the action must be brought before the court having jurisdiction for the registered office of Deep Alpha Research.
BaFin Registration and Adherence to Standards
Deep Alpha Research adheres itself to the highest standards when calculating metrics and using machine learning to make the financial markets transparent. As such we have registered with the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority "BaFin" and pledges to uphold the highest industry standards.

Final provisions, severability clause
Any amendment or supplement to the contract must be made in text or written form. The same shall apply to collateral agreements. The text or written form requirement shall also apply to the waiver of the text or written form requirement. If there are differences between the German or English language versions, the German version shall prevail. In case of invalidity or impracticability of a provision before or after conclusion of the contract, the validity of the rest of the contract shall remain unaffected. Invalid or unenforceable contractual provisions shall be replaced by a provision that comes closest to the originally intended provision. This shall also apply if the contract should be incomplete.
Right of withdrawal, scope of application of the right of withdrawal:
Deep Alpha Research grants all users – regardless of whether they are residents of the European Union or not – the consumer right of withdrawal applicable in Germany for paid subscriptions.

If you have requested that the performance of the services should commence during the withdrawal period, you shall pay us a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of the services already performed up to the point in time at which you notify us of the exercise of the right of withdrawal regarding the contract, compared to the total scope of the services provided for in the contract.
