These Terms may apply to you individually, the business or other legal entity user you represent, or both. If you are entering into these Terms, or using the Site or Services, on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you hereby represent and warrant that you have the authority to enter into these Terms on behalf of such entity. By ordering, accessing, registering for or using the Services, you: (1) acknowledge that you have read and understand these Terms; (2) agree to be bound by them in their entirety, and (3) are entering into a legally binding agreement with us. As used in these Terms and unless separately identified as applicable to either an individual or entity, “you” and “your” refer to both you individually and the entity on behalf of which you are entering into these Terms. In the event you have entered into a separate written agreement with Polygon regarding the Services that contemplates terms that are inconsistent with these Terms, the written agreement shall control and these Terms will not apply to you to the extent inconsistent with such written agreement, or, if such written agreement is contemplated to be in lieu of these Terms, these Terms shall not apply at all.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SERVICES. YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES REQUIRES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AS THEY MAY BE AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME, INCLUDING THE POLICIES INCORPORATED
1.1. Overview of Services. Polygon provides a financial data platform, together with related services and content. The Services may include access to various financial data feeds, as well as related applications. In addition to the terms set forth herein, each data feed or application may describe its own restrictions and limitations (e.g. redistribution restrictions and API usage limitations) during the selection process, and such terms are hereby incorporated into these Terms by reference to the extent you select or otherwise access or use the corresponding data feed or application.
1.2. Services Content. Excluding User Content (defined below), all content made available through the Services (including, without limitation, all information and infrastructure, associated financial tools, data, investment write-ups, user information, data, newsletters, blog posts, general text, graphics, and their selection and arrangement, collectively, the “Services Content”) is the proprietary information of Polygon. No Services Content may be modified, copied, distributed, reproduced, republished, downloaded, posted, transmitted, or sold in any form or by any means, in whole or in part, without Polygon’s prior written permission in each instance. Provided that you are eligible for use and access of the Services and subject to the conditions of these Terms of Service, you are granted a limited license to access the Services Content and to download or print a copy of any portion of the Services Content to which you have properly gained access solely for your own use, provided that you keep all copyright or other proprietary notices intact. You may not upload or republish Services Content on any Internet, Intranet or Extranet site or incorporate the information in any other database or compilation, and any other use of the Services Content is strictly prohibited. You agree to abide by all additional copyright notices or restrictions contained in the Services Content.
2.1. Overview. As noted above, Polygon provides a financial data platform. Through such platform made available as part of the Services, you may order certain data feeds or applications. Each data feed and application may have its own specific terms applicable to such data feed or application (“Product Terms”), which are set forth in corresponding links presented with the data feed on the Site and also made available for review during the ordering process, and such Product Terms are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this Agreement by this reference and you automatically agree to such terms by ordering or otherwise accessing the corresponding data feed or application. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and Product Terms, the Product Terms shall control. One common data feed-specific term within the Product Terms specifies whether such data feed may be redistributed or not. Absent Product Terms to the contrary, the respective rights applicable to non-redistributable and redistributable data are set forth below in Sections 2.2, Sections 2.3 and 2.4, respectively. Another common data feed-specific term is the API Call Limits, which sets the maximum number of times an API call may be made at a certain time interval with respect to such data feed. A third common data feed-specific term within the Product Terms specifies whether such user of the data feed is a Professional or a Non-Professional. Absent Product Terms to the contrary, the respective rights applicable to Professionals and Non-Professionals set forth below in Sections 2.2 and 2.3, respectively.
The data feeds and applications may include data made available by Polygon or third-party publishers distributing data through Polygon and the Polygon Data Applications available on the Site (collectively, “Polygon Data”). Accordingly, certain data feeds or applications may require you to enter into an agreement directly with the third-party provider of such data feed or application. In such event, you may not access such data feed or application without agreeing to such terms, which shall constitute a direct agreement between you and the third party. You acknowledge and agree that Polygon is not a party to such agreement, and you hereby hold Polygon harmless from all liability arising out of or relating to such agreement. “Polygon Data Applications” means the Polygon API, Polygon Excel Add-In, and Polygon Screener for Excel, and other web or software services or applications developed by Polygon and made available to you that utilize or interact with the Polygon Data, as well as any related documentation, source code, applications and other materials related thereto.
2.2. Non-Redistribution, Professional Use Parameters. With respect to all Polygon Data identified as being provided with no redistribution rights, you may not redistribute such Polygon Data. Your use of such Polygon Data is exclusively for professional research purposes and may not be utilized to build an application intended for use by end users other than for you. You may not share your access to the Polygon Data with other individuals. You must disclose in any printed or shared document containing the Polygon Data either the Polygon logo or reference that the data is from Polygon. For example, you may use the data to create reports (e.g. analyst reports), provided that the data is presented in a static manner and repackaged in a form that adds additional information or analysis of the data beyond basic sharing of the data itself in isolation. You may not, however, include Polygon Data identified as being provided with no redistribution rights in any application or otherwise provide or display the data to a third-party in a dynamic manner (i.e. frequently updating the data being displayed (through technological means relating to an API call or otherwise) as opposed to presenting the data within a certain set once as it exists at a specific moment in time). In the event the Product Terms include additional or conflicting terms with respect to the non-redistribution use parameters, such Product Terms shall apply and supersede these Terms where they conflict.
2.3. Non-Redistribution, Non-Professional Use Parameters. With respect to all Polygon Data identified as being provided with no redistribution rights, you may not redistribute such Polygon Data. Your use of such Polygon Data is exclusively for personal or research purposes and may not be utilized to build an application intended for use by end users other than for you. You may not utilize the Polygon Data for professional purposes for which you are compensated. You may not share your access to the Polygon Data with other individuals. You must disclose in any printed or shared document containing the Polygon Data either the Polygon logo or reference that the data is from Polygon. For example, you may use the data to create reports (e.g. analyst reports), provided that the data is presented in a static manner and repackaged in a form that adds additional information or analysis of the data beyond basic sharing of the data itself in isolation. You may not, however, include Polygon Data identified as being provided with no redistribution rights in any application or otherwise provide or display the data to a third-party in a dynamic manner (i.e. frequently updating the data being displayed (through technological means relating to an API call or otherwise) as opposed to presenting the data within a certain set once as it exists at a specific moment in time). In the event the Product Terms include additional or conflicting terms with respect to the non-redistribution use parameters, such Product Terms shall apply and supersede these Terms where they conflict.
2.4. Redistribution Use Parameters. With respect to all Polygon Data identified as being provided with redistribution rights, you are permitted to receive, process, and display the Polygon Data in your own application to individual end users of your application, provided you or your End Users use the data in such a way as to not resell or otherwise commercially exploit the Polygon Data (provided that you may commercialize your application so long as such commercialization and the demand for such application is not directly or primarily tied to the Polygon Data itself and material, substantial functionality and/or analysis is provided in connection with such Polygon Data). You are also permitted to systematically query the API with respect to such data (subject to applicable Daily API Call Limits). You must disclose in your application, website or software (on any page where Polygon Data is used) either the Polygon logo or reference that the data is from Polygon. In the event the Product Terms include additional or conflicting terms with respect to the redistribution use parameters, such Product Terms shall apply and supersede these Terms where they conflict.
2.5. Restrictions. Regardless of whether the data is redistributable, you shall not repackage or resell the Polygon Data or Polygon Data Applications in any form, including, without limitation, bulk form (subject to your limited rights to use and display the data as set forth in Section 2.2, Section 2.3, or Section 2.4 as applicable, and provided further that an entire data feed may be used within a report provided it is repackaged and accompanied by additional analysis as opposed to general republishing). If you reach your Daily API Call Limit for your subscription (which is set forth in the applicable Product Terms), your service will be shut off until the next day, which resets at 12:00am Eastern Standard Time US. Additionally, as noted above, your access and use of each Polygon data feed or application is subject to any restrictions and limitations (e.g. redistribution restrictions and API usage limitations) set forth in the Product Terms for each such data feed or application.

Excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief, for any claim where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online or be solely based on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration each party waives any right to a jury trial.
You acknowledge and agree that Polygon may provide notices and other disclosures to you electronically by posting such notices or other disclosures on Polygon’s website or by emailing it to you at any email address provided to Polygon by you. Such notices or other disclosures shall be considered received by you following the posting on the website or twenty-four (24) hours following the email being sent to you, as applicable.
