You agree to pay all taxes that are applicable under your jurisdiction, along with payment for the Service.
The payment is made for the ability to access our Commercial Services, therefore all fees, charges and applicable taxes depend on the lack of restrictions to access a particular content or service (as specifically expressed on the respective enrollment screens) - regardless of whether these services, content, information, or websites are used or not.
The beginning date of all Services (including Free Services and Commercial Services) is the day, on which you obtain access to the particular Service or content. In case of Free Services available to Registered Users that is the day of your registration. In case of Commercial Services the beginning date is the day that Sunshine Profits acknowledges the receipt of your payment.
Sunshine Profits refunds payments only if the request is received within 30 days from the date on the receipt, and the maximum refund amount is limited to the amount on this particular receipt. Sunshine Profits will refund only payments for Subscriber's first 3 requests.
As long as you do not cancel the subscription, you are required to pay any and all applicable charges for the Services.
If you pay by a credit card or conduct online money transfer and you do not receive confirmation that the money arrived within 48 hours, you are obliged to contact us in that matter.
In other words: Subscriptions are renewed automatically, however this is done for your convenience, not the other way around - you have 30 days from each payment to request its refund for whatever reason.
You may cancel your subscription at any moment, however, Sunshine Profits refunds payments only if the refund request is received within 30 days from the date on the receipt, which corresponds to the date of the payment for which a refund is requested. Sunshine Profits will refund only payments for Subscriber's first 3 requests. Sunshine Profits does not prorate any payments, charges, fees or taxes (if applicable) on any type of Service, regardless of the term for which the Service has been paid.
Sunshine Profits will process cancellation requests made via e-mail or the contact form on the website within 2 business days. The cancellation that you can do on your own on the website will come into effect immediately.
In other words: If you canceled your subscription but didn't receive a confirmation email from us - it means that we didn't receive your request and your subscription was not canceled. In this case retry or contact us by using either the contact form (http://www.sunshineprofits.com/help/contact-us/) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, be sure to give us some time to cancel the subscription for you - we usually do it within a few hours, but it could take up to 2 business (!) days. If you want to cancel a subscription, it's generally best if you do it yourself on the website - it will cancel the subscription immediately and you'll see it right on your screen.
The pricing of our Services may change. The price that you pay for the Service is valid only for the period that you have paid for. The price may change during your Subscription period. In case of an automatic renewal of subscription, the next payment after the price of Services changed will reflect that change. Your credit card charge or other form of payment will be automatically charged or debited unless you have cancelled your account. To avoid being charged for the next period under new terms, you shall cancel your subscription, prior to the renewal date.
All subscriptions on Commercial Services at Sunshine Profits are provided on a continuous renewal basis. Your subscription shall be renewed for the same period that you were subscribed to, prior to the date of the renewal.
7. Lifetime Subscriptions
The payments for all lifetime subscriptions are non-refundable unless indicated otherwise.
Only one person may use the account. Third parties (family members, business partners, friends etc.) could be added to a given account at preferred terms, but in each case the terms, on which the account could be shared, will be confirmed in writing. Unless a clear permission is given, it is not allowed to share the account information with any third party.
Sunshine Profits or individual authors cannot and do not guarantee the continuity of any service. The payments for lifetime subscriptions will be partially refunded for individual products only if all of the following conditions are met:
- the product that the subscription was provided for ceases to exist (this does not cover changing the author of the publication)
- the refund is requested in writing (e-mail or using the contact form is sufficient)
- the refund is requested within the first 3 years after the payment for the lifetime subscription.
In other words: In general, there are no refunds when it comes to the Lifetime Subscriptions (it might be a good idea to initially subscribe to a regular subscription to try a given product before subscribing to its lifetime version). Even though we’ll strive to provide the service as we do when you subscribe (or provide more after some time instead of providing less), we can’t guarantee anything because “lifetime” is a very long time and since our work is mostly analyst-dependent, a lot can change. For instance, if your favorite author falls into a coma we don’t want to risk breaking company’s liquidity in case there are multiple refund requests at that time. We will strive to make sure that you are happy with our services, but since we can’t know what happens in a few years, we can’t legally guarantee everything.
8. Risks and warranties

In other words: We prepare our analysis and tools based on data from sources that we find trustworthy, but as they don't legally guarantee the accuracy of their data, neither can we. We will serve you to the best of our abilities, but it will be you who makes the investment decisions and makes the trades/investments. More importantly, we are not responsible for anything what you do or don't do based on our services. You are responsible for your investment decisions (and investments/speculation are risky) - not us.

You agree that Sunshine Profits may not be liable for damages, harms or injuries resulting from such events.

You fully and explicitly agree that any claim shall not exceed this amount in any event.

Complaints shall be considered by Sunshine Profits within 15 business days upon receiving the complaint in the aforementioned form. Confirmation will be sent when a complaint is received.

The person submitting a complaint shall be notified on the manner of considering the complaint by e-mail, to the address corresponding to the provided login. Only under special circumstances, will other e-mail address be used. Such e-mail address shall be provided by the User in the content of the complaint.
In other words: It usually takes us between 0 to 2 business days to reply to a message, but we guarantee a reply to a complaint within 15 business days.
11. Priority of transactions
Mr. Radomski provides investment management services for his private gold investment fund and managed trading service, and the results of his work may benefit the clients of these services before they are presented in any analysis or alert via the Website. Mr. Radomski further manages his own capital through these services, and therefore may benefit personally from his work prior to any analysis or alert being made available via the Website.
In other words: We may be placing trades before writing about it. However, it's not done in order to trade before our clients, but rather to trade along with our clients. Naturally, this applies to the clients, who wanted us to manage their capital – in the case of our alerts, we can’t know if our analysis is used to manage one’s capital or not (or perhaps it is used along with some other source of signals or perhaps only to a limited extent etc.). In the case of both the private fund and managed trading, the capital of our clients and our own is treated in exactly the same way. In other words, we treat our clients’ capital as our own.
12. Other provisions
If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect.
