Terms of Service
The information, products, and services (“Services”) hosted on and from forexfactory.com are provided by Forex Factory, Inc. (“FF”), located at 100 North Tampa Street, Tampa, Florida 33602, United States. By using FF’s Services, users of the Services (“Users”) are agreeing to all of the following terms.
Users must follow any policies made available to Users within the Services.
Users may not misuse Services. For example, Users are not permitted to interfere with Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that FF provides. Users may use Services only as permitted by law.
FF may suspend or stop providing Services to Users who do not comply with terms or policies, or if FF is investigating suspected misconduct.
Using FF’s Services does not give Users any ownership of any intellectual property rights in the Services, or the content Users access. Users may not use content from FF’s Services unless Users obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant Users the right to use any branding or logos used in FF’s Services.
FF’s Services are designed primarily for experienced forex traders. Trading forex is potentially profitable for educated and experienced traders, however, there is considerable exposure to financial risk when trading forex. FF makes no endorsement of forex trading, and does not intend to influence Users to trade or alter their trading approach. Forex Factory and its affiliates cannot be held liable for trading decisions based on information hosted on or from the FF website.
FF may email Users service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. Users may opt out of some of those communications.
Users may need to obtain a member account (“Account”) in order to use all Services.
Users are responsible for protecting their Account by keeping their password confidential. Users are responsible for the activity that happens on or through their Account. Users should not reuse their Account password on third-party applications. If Users learn of any unauthorized use of their password or Account, they should immediately contact FF.
Some Services allow Users to submit existing content. Users retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that they hold in that content. What belongs to Users stays theirs.
When Users upload or otherwise submit content to FF’s Services, Users give FF a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes FF makes so that User content works better within Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights Users grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if Users stop using FF’s Services.
If Users have an Account, FF may display their username, uploaded photos, and actions taken on FF. FF will respect the choices Users make to limit visibility via their Account settings.
FF’s Services display some content that is not FF’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. FF may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates FF’s policies, and FF may remove or refuse to display content that FF reasonably believe violates FF’s policies or the law. However, that does not necessarily mean that FF reviews all content.
FF responds to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminates accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
As an interactive computer service, FF is provided immunity by the United States Congress in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 from being held responsible for material published to the FF website by Users. Users will be held solely responsible for the content of anything they post. If a User posts libelous, defamatory, slanderous, or otherwise untruthful remarks about a person or company, they may be putting themselves in legal jeopardy.
FF is constantly changing and improving Services. FF may add or remove functionalities or features, and FF may suspend or stop a Service altogether.
Users can stop using FF’s Services at any time. FF may also stop providing Services to Users at any time, or add or create new limits to FF’s Services at any time.

FF may collect and store information locally on Users’ devices using mechanisms such browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches. FF uses various technologies to collect and store information when Users visit a Service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to Users’ devices.
Users may set their browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with FF’s Services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by FF. However, many Services may not function properly if Users’ cookies are disabled.
FF uses Information from all Services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect FF and Users. FF also uses Information to offer Users tailored content and ads.
When Users contact FF, FF may keep a record of Users’ communications to help solve any issues Users might be facing. FF may use Users’ email addresses to inform them about Services, such as letting Users know about upcoming changes or improvements.
FF uses information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve Users’ experience and the overall quality of Services. When showing Users tailored ads, FF will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.
FF will ask for Users’ consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this policy.
FF processes Information on servers in many countries around the world. FF may process Information on a server located outside the country where Users live.
FF does not share Information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of FF, unless one of the following circumstances applies:
FF may share Information with companies, organizations, or individuals if FF has a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
FF may share Information with companies, organizations, or individuals to enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations, detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of FF.
FF restricts access to Information to FF employees and contractors who need to know the information in order to process it for FF, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and will be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
