ShareMaestro Terms and Conditions

By viewing or using ShareMaestro you are accepting these Terms and Conditions in a legally binding contract. This ShareMaestro website page shows the latest version of the ShareMaestro Terms and Conditions which supersede any previous versions.. "ShareMaestro" means any part of the ShareMaestro software, system and weekly valuation spreadsheet, including without limit its components and associated documentation such as the ShareMaestro User Manual. Do not use ShareMaestro if you cannot accept these Terms and Conditions. It is your responsibility to verify that you are legally entitled to use ShareMaestro in the jurisdiction to which you are subject.

 The ShareMaestro licence entitles you only to personal use of ShareMaestro and does not entitle you to use ShareMaestro in any professional or advisory capacity. The ShareMaestro licence does not entitle you to use ShareMaestro in any trustee or fiduciary capacity nor to use ShareMaestro in any way on behalf of other individuals or organisations. ShareMaestro is designed for use only by individual private investors who understand the concepts and terminology of investment in equities and stock markets. You may not transfer your ShareMaestro licence to other users. 

 You should read the ShareMaestro User Manual fully before using ShareMaestro. The latest version of the User Manual is available from the ShareMaestro website at www.sharemaestro.co.uk/Resource-Centre.shtml . It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that ShareMaestro is suitable for the purposes for which you use it and any representation, whether express or implied, about ShareMaestro and its performance is excluded.

 You will not use ShareMaestro for illegal purposes nor to bring into disrepute either ShareMaestro Limited or its employees, agents and authorised representatives.

 The ShareMaestro system is protected by copyright and any publication, copying or distribution of all or part of the ShareMaestro system, including without limit ShareMaestro valuations and the User Manual, requires the prior written approval of ShareMaestro Limited. Your subscription will be terminated immediately without any refund if you are found to have breached this condition and you may be liable for the direct or indirect costs and losses arising from the breach.

 ShareMaestro is designed to provide intrinsic valuations and other related information only for the FTSE 100 index or for the ordinary shares of listed UK companies, excluding equity investment instruments. The individual shares must be priced in the UK stock market in the £ Sterling currency and have paid a dividend in the financial year prior to the date of the ShareMaestro valuation. ShareMaestro is not suitable for collective investments such as unit trusts, investment trusts and OEICs. 

ShareMaestro has been developed to cover positive annual UK inflation rates (using the Retail Price Index – All Items) of up to 10.5%. ShareMaestro should not be used when the actual or projected inflation rates fall outside this range. The projected investment growth figures (1 and 2) produced by ShareMaestro software are based on the UK personal basic and higher income tax rates respectively which were current at the date of the software version release. These projected growth figures exclude share dealing costs and any capital gains tax or other taxes payable. You can customise the new spreadsheet version of ShareMaestro with your own personal tax rates.  The current intrinsic valuation of the FTSE 100 or individual share is based on a 5-year investment period. The weekly bulk share valuation file will normally be available by noon (UK time) on the Saturday following the end of the trading week but this timing and frequency is not guaranteed. Planned variations to this timing will be notified to clients. Unplanned variations may be caused by telecommunication or third-party problems outside the control of ShareMaestro Limited.

 Investment in equities and stock markets involves risk. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Stock markets are volatile and can be driven to extremes by fear and greed. ShareMaestro valuations are dependent on the variable data which is input – both actual market data and the judgement-based factors. ShareMaestro Limited accepts no liability for any inaccuracies in the information sources which are used to populate the input fields of ShareMaestro. The ShareMaestro valuations will change according to changes in any of the input values, including, for example, changes in the market conditions and changes in the assumptions about the prospects of dividend growth for the FTSE 100 and for individual companies. The ShareMaestro valuations do not constitute any form of investment advice from ShareMaestro Limited. Your specific needs, investment objectives and financial situation need to be taken into account before making investment decisions. You are strongly recommended to consult a qualified financial planner or investment advisor before acting on any information provided by ShareMaestro.

Any data made available to clients for downloading is for your personal, non-professional use only and should not be redistributed. The data is provided "as is". ShareMaestro Limited and its employees, agents, authorised representatives and information service providers do not guarantee the accuracy of the data and exclude all liability for any loss or damage, including indirect, special or consequential loss or damage, arising from the use of this data for any purpose including but not restricted to the production of share or index valuations, whether or not caused by any negligent act or omission.

ShareMaestro Limited, and its employees, agents and authorised representatives exclude all liability for any loss or damage, including indirect, special or consequential loss or damage, arising from the downloading, installation or use of ShareMaestro or from any information produced by ShareMaestro, whether or not caused by any negligent act or omission. Any liability of ShareMaestro Limited to you under this contract or otherwise is limited to the sum of charges paid by you to ShareMaestro Limited or to its authorised agents.

 ShareMaestro Limited accepts no liability for your inability to use ShareMaestro as a result of technical problems with the computer environment, including without limit hardware, software, communication links and third-party services. ShareMaestro Limited does not warrant that ShareMaestro is compatible with any computer system, including hardware and software and third-party services, which you may use.

 By providing links to other websites via the ShareMaestro User Manual, ShareMaestro website or elsewhere, ShareMaestro Limited does not approve, guarantee or endorse the content or products of these websites.

 The Terms and Conditions of this agreement will be construed in accordance with English law and will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
