Terms of Service

Welcome to Stockstream.tv!

These are StockstreamTv's terms of service (stick with us here). We know that most people skim through terms of service statements because they're boring and go right over our heads, but we have done everything we can to make this easy to get through. At the beginning of every section, you'll see the biggest takeaway of the following portion. By using StockstreamTv, you agree to these terms and we will always tell you if we change them. These summaries are not legally binding, but they give you a short version of the terms. Summaries appear highlighted at the start of every section.

Stockstream.tv is a platform where Investors can support and engage with Analysts. These are Stockstream.tv's terms of service and apply to all users of the Stockstream.tv website. “We,” “our” or “us” refers to Stockstream.tv TM. StockstreamTv refers to this website and the services offered by us.

By using Stockstream.tv you agree to these terms. You acknowledge that you have read and understood these terms. You also agree to our privacy policy and any other policies we post on Stockstream.tv.

Stockstream.tv is a platform. We are not responsible for the quality, timing or legality of content.

We may sometimes make changes to these terms. If we make material changes that adversely affect your rights under these terms, then we will let you know by posting an announcement on the site or sending you an email prior to the changes coming into effect. Continuing to use Stockstream.tv after a change to these terms means you accept the new terms.

Account Creation

You must be at least 18 years old to register for an account, and to pay or accept money there are other requirements. You are responsible for your account.

When you register for an account you must provide us with accurate information. If you don’t provide us with accurate information then we may not be able to assist you with accessing your account.

To register for an account you must be at least 18 years old. To give or receive subscriptions you must be at least 18 years old. If you know a user is under the age of 18, please report them to us.

You are responsible for anything that occurs when anyone is signed in to your account, as well as the security of the account. If you believe your account is compromised, you must contact us immediately.


User Conduct

Don’t do bad stuff. Be responsible and use common sense.

You are responsible for all the activity on your account. If you do bad things we may terminate your account. For starters:

  • Illegal Activities - Don’t break the law or encourage others to break the law.
  • Abuse - Don’t harass or bully others, or promote violence or hatred towards others.
  • Personal Information - Don’t distribute others’ personal information or otherwise abuse it. Analysts with access to their subscribers’ personal information should not use it for anything unrelated to Stockstream.tv.
  • Fraud - Don’t post information that is false or otherwise misleading.
  • Impersonation - Don’t impersonate anyone. Don’t use another’s account, or allow others to use your account.

  • Reward Sharing - Don’t support a Analyst and then share their subscriber-only content without permission from the Analyst.
  • Reverse Engineering - Don’t take apart Stockstream.tv to figure out our secret sauce.

These guidelines are not meant to be exhaustive. If you find a new and creative way to hurt Stockstream.tv or our users we may take action to prevent it.


All About Being a Subscriber

Subscribers pay money to Analysts for creating content. Subscribers will be charged a set amount per month. Stockstream.tv is not responsible for the quality, timing or legality of content.

To become a subscriber, you must create an account, and upgrade your account to a trader. This will in turn update your preferred payment method, and allow you to subscribe to any Analyst!

You may cancel your subscription(s) at any time.

We may grant refunds at our sole discretion in exceptional circumstances.

In certain situations you may lose access to an analyst's subscriber-only content. These include when you cancel your subscription, your payment method fails, the analyst blocks you, or the analyst deletes their account.

We have no control over the quality, timing or legality of content. We do not grant refunds for failure to deliver content. We do attempt to screen for fraudulent analysts pages, but cannot guarantee the identity of analysts or the validity of any claims they make. We appreciate your help reporting suspicious analyst pages so we can improve Stockstream.tv.


All About Being an Analyst

Analysts launch a page that allows traders to subscribe to them. You appoint us as your agent to collect and process payments on your behalf, and our fee is 0% of your subscriptions. You are responsible for any taxes you owe based on the payments you receive. You must also follow our rules about content.

To become an analyst, you may convert your regular account to an analyst account or directly make an analyst account, and launch the page.

We may block or hold payments for violations of the terms or compliance reasons, including collecting tax reporting information. When payments are delayed or blocked we try to communicate the reasons to you promptly. In order to protect analysts, we may block subscribers' payments if we believe them to be fraudulent.

Our fee to process transactions on your behalf is 0% of processed subscriptions.

We do not handle tax payments. You are responsible for reporting any taxes.

We restrict some types of content. You cannot:

  • Create any content with real people engaging in sexual or violent acts.
  • Create any content with nudity, or realistic depictions of sexual or violent acts.
  • Create content using others' intellectual property, unless you have written permission to use it, or your use is protected by fair use.

If your potential subscribers are under the age of 18, please report them. Anyone under the age of 18 cannot have an account.

We are not party to the agreement between analysts and subscribers. If a subscriber requests a refund from us, we only grant it in exceptional situations. We deduct the refunded amount from future payments to you.


Stockstream.tv’s Role

While Stockstream.tv supports content creation, we do not legally endorse any content on our site. If content is reported we may remove it, but we do not take that action lightly.

We only provide a platform for analysts and subscribers to interact. We do not screen or endorse any content on Stockstream.tv. If you see content that violates these terms, then let us know and we may remove it.

Removing content or terminating accounts is not an action we take lightly and we may take a while to investigate or open the issue up to further discussion with the community.

We are constantly testing out new features with the goal of making Stockstream.tv better. We may add or remove features, and often test features with a random subset of our users. If we believe a feature is significantly different from these terms, then we explain those differences in the test.

With your permission, we may give other websites or services the ability to verify information about your Stockstream.tv account or perform actions on your behalf. This permission is asked for when you connect your Stockstream.tv account to these other websites or services. Information can include the existence of your account, subscription amounts and length of support. Actions can include creating, editing or deleting subscriptions and any other interaction with creators such as posting messages or liking posts.

You can permanently disable your account at any time by sending an email to team@stockstream.tv.
