IB Terms & Conditions

Interactive Buyside LLC ("Interactive Buyside", "IB", "we," or "us") provides its website, Interactive Buyside (www.InteractiveBuyside.com) to you, an individual user ("you") for your individual usage, subject to compliance with the terms and conditions set forth herein.


1. Agreement

By using this site, you agree to be bound by our Terms & Conditions.


2. Overview and Disclaimer

Interactive Buyside is a platform dedicated to breaking down financial barriers and providing value-add investment research to the everyday investor. IB acts soley as an intermediary platform that matches up a community of Investors ("Investors", who have an interest in reading investment opinions and analysis) with a community of Analysts ("Analysts", who have an interest in providing such analysis). IB expresses no opinions with respect to any investment recommendations, as we are soley a platform through which individuals and analysts can connect, interact and communicate. To the extent that any of the content published on IB may be deemed to be investment advice or recommendations, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment strategy of any specific person.


3. No Guaranteed Investment Recommendation or Performance

The research reports, which are provided and sold through the IB platform, are simply opinions of the IB Analysts and are not guarantees of any sort. The Analysts writing said research are not guaranteed to be registered investment advisors, nor are they deemed to all be investment professionals. The research follows a certain IB template and each report is reviewed by IB management for the sole purpose of ensuring that the reports follow the IB template guidelines. IB does not ensure the validity or accuracy of any report and makes no guarantees as to the outcome of any investment recommendation. We cannot ensure that all Analysts have been 100% truthful in their investment experience or education as it pertains to their bios. IB will not be held accountable for any losses or gains arising out of investment actions by its users. Users understand that any investment in any security is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.


4. Privacy

If you choose to write anonymously, then IB guarantees your anonymity. No Analysts or Investors will be able to identify who you are if you specifically choose not to disclose your identity. We at IB respect the privacy (if desired) of our Analysts. Please see our privacy policy page for more details.


5. Payment Options

If you choose not to receive sale proceeds for your published research, then we will guarantee that you will not source any income from the IB platform. We understand that some Analysts may be conflicted (with their current jobs) in terms of receiving other outside income, therefore Analysts may choose to forgo any and all monetary proceeds on any report they publish. We at IB want to keep the doors open to all of those who are eager to write, no matter the conflict.


6. Pricing Structure

One of the numerous benefits that the IB platform provides to Analysts is that they will be compensated financially for the sale of their reports. That is to say, whenever an individual report is sold on the IB platform, the Analyst of such report will receive 50% of all net proceeds of that specific report sale (a "point-of-sale" transaction). The company is still in the initial phases of development, so we cannot guarantee that the initial pricing structure will hold in perpetuity. As we continue to collect feedback from Analysts and Investors, IB reserves the right to modify, change, or delete the current IB pricing structure at any point in time if we feel as though it will encourage more Investors to access the Analysts' research reports. IB also reserves the right to change the current point-of-sale pricing structure to (a) a weekly, monthly or annual subscription, or (b) remove pricing altogether.


7. IB Report Distribution

Any purchase of an IB Research Report will strictly be for the use of the individual who purchased said report. Once you purchase an IB report, the you will not be allowed to copy, print, email, or distribute your IB Report at any time whatsoever. Doing so will be a violation of the IB Terms & Conditions.


8. User Conduct
