Terms & Conditions
Welcome to Equity Research Insights! We hope you’ll enjoy our Equity Research Insights Reports (Reports) (the “Service,” and collectively, the “Services”).
By using the Services, you’re agreeing to be bound by these Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions” or “Terms”) INCLUDING THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER DETAILED IN SECTION 9. These Terms govern your use and access to the website and all our Services. We may change these terms at any time, but we will post a notice on this website of any material changes. Your continued use of Equity Research Insights and its Services means that you accept any new or modified terms and conditions.
Some Services are works in progress. We reserve the right to change or even eliminate them with no notice, at our sole discretion.
Except as expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions, members may only maintain one active registration with Equity Research Insights. Any use of multiple accounts or aliases on our Services, including attempts to mislead, defraud, confuse, or otherwise trick us or our members, is a breach of these Terms and Conditions.
If you subscribe to one of our Subscription Plans (Plan) you will be asked to create a password, which you’ll need to access the Service and you’ll also be required to choose a username.
As a registered user, you can update your account settings, including your email address, by going to the Account Settings page, where you can change your password and your username, make changes to the Services you receive.
2. Subscription Plans (Plan)
When subscribing to a Plan you will need to provide us with your name, email address, as well as your credit card information. You agree to pay the applicable subscription fee as set forth on this site. Sales taxes may be charged in addition to the subscription fee. You certify that all information you provide is accurate. You also agree to maintain and update your information as necessary so that it remains accurate and current. In the event that any information you provide is inaccurate or not up to date, Equity Research Insights reserves the right to cancel your subscription. We reserve the right to refuse or discontinue the supply of a Service to any user at any time at our sole discretion.
Unless stated otherwise, membership to any Service is for online and/or electronic access only. Our Services generally deliver their content, web links to the content and Reports via email, including newsletters that do not necessarily require a subscription to a Plan. Users can always opt out of newsletter emails on the Account Settings page or via the Unsubscribe button at the bottom of every email.
You may cancel your Plan at any time in your Account Settings page. Alternately, you may email us via the contact form on the website to confirm that you wish to cancel your Plan. Once a Plan has commenced after the user has paid for the Services the cancellation policy is effective from the start of the following month. Subscription fees paid monthly cannot be canceled as no payment is due to us after that prepayment and availing of Services. Your Plan will not automatically renew at the end of your subscription period. However, we will notify you of the impending expiry of your subscription and invite you to renew your subscription. Equity Research Insights reserves the right to increase a Service’s fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice. Service fees are due in advance.
Please review the specific terms of your offer before signing up as you are agreeing to be bound those terms. If you are unsure of your cancellation rights, please contact our support team via the contact form on the website. There is no refund offered for Service fees that the user pays monthly. User on a yearly Plan will be refunded for the remaining portion of their yearly subscription, calculated on an unexpired monthly basis, but excluding the month of cancellation, for which there will be no refund.
Transfer; Discontinuing a Service
You cannot transfer your subscription to someone else, except through bequeathment or by a court order. In the event a subscription is transferred, it will continue through the end of its term and can be renewed at the then-current price and conditions. In the event that we discontinue a Service, you agree that Equity Research Insights may transfer your subscription to another Service of equal or greater value.
3. Change of Plan – upgrade or downgrade
Our Plans provide the option to upgrade or downgrade to another subscription plan. You may do this yourself in the Account Setting page. The change of Plan will be effective at the start of the next month. The (discounted) monthly rate will be used to calculate the portion of the annual subscription ineligible for the refund and the remaining portion will be applied against the new upgrade or downgrade to the Plan chosen by the user. Should there be a surplus because of this exercise, and if a refund is due, the surplus will be applied to the user’s wallet. The user may utilize this surplus to purchase other services from Equity Research Insights or the user may request a refund which will be returned to the initial payment card used to subscribe to the
If you are unsure of your Change of Plan rights, please contact our support team via the contact form on the website. If you take advantage of a Change of Plan, please also note that you will lose access to any Services included in the original subscribed Plan. From time to time, we offer Reports that require a one-time purchase. You may use any credit in your wallet to purchase these, but you must have enough credit to cover the full list price of the report.
Equity Research Insights reserves the right to disallow the Change of Plan into certain services depending on insufficient credit or a member’s history of transfers or prior refunds, or for any other reason at Equity Research Insights’ sole discretion.

9. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
If a dispute arises in connection with your use of our Services or in relation to any of these Terms (collectively, “Disputes”) our hope is that we can resolve the matter informally. Accordingly, in the event of a Dispute, we agree to first contact each other via email with a description of the Dispute and any proposed resolution. You will email our support team via the contact form on the website with your concern and Equity Research Insights will contact you via the email address we have on file for you. If a Dispute cannot be resolved informally, we each agree that except as provided below, the Dispute will be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a panel of three arbitrators of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in a location convenient to you. Either party may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for ConsumerRelated Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. We will pay all of the filing costs, including arbitrator fees. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action
or any class-wide arbitration.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following will not be subject to arbitration and may be adjudicated only in the state and federal courts of Virginia: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim related to or contesting the validity of our proprietary rights, including without limitation, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, patents, or trade secrets; or (ii) an action by a party for temporary, preliminary, or permanent injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief. You may also file an individual action in a small claims court in lieu of arbitration.
You will have thirty (30) days from the date you submit your personally identifiable information to opt out of this arbitration agreement. To opt out of arbitration, you must contact us at Equity Research Insights via the website contact form. If more than thirty (30) days have passed, you are not eligible to opt out of arbitration.
