The use of the website is usually possible without providing personal data. If personal data (such as name, address, or email addresses) is collected on the website, this is always done on a voluntary basis, if possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g., communication by email) may have security vulnerabilities.

Complete protection of your data from access by third parties is not possible. The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly prohibited.

The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.

General information on data processing

1) Scope of processing of personal data

We generally only process personal data of our users as far as this is necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly carried out only with the user's consent. An exception applies in cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Where we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of a contract.

The provider offers subscriptions to the "optionearner" as a digital product (PDF file, emails) on its internet platform Please note the special revocation instructions in Section III for digital products.

1.2. Conclusion of Contract

For orders of subscriptions as a digital product, the contract is concluded upon receipt of the subscription confirmation via email to the customer. The product presentation on the internet platform is not a binding declaration of intent by the provider, but an invitation to submit an offer. The customer submits a binding offer by registering and completing the ordering process by activating the "Order now for a fee" button. Before activating the "Order now for a fee" button, the customer is asked to review the data provided by him/her once again. In addition, in case of input errors or incomplete information provided by the customer, the data is displayed again before submission. The customer has the right to cancel the ordering process at any time without stating reasons. The subsequent system email from the provider merely confirms the receipt of the offer and is not yet an acceptance declaration. If the provider is unable to fulfill an order or rejects the order, the customer will be informed immediately. There is no entitlement to conclude a contract. In particular, the seller explicitly does not address customers in countries where publication of information or distribution of the securities depicted is prohibited or restricted by law.

Only the payment methods offered during the ordering process will be accepted. Upon receipt of the invoice, the respective subscription price becomes due for payment and must be transferred to the account specified in the invoice. When paying via PayPal, the payment process must be completed promptly by the purchaser. The provider is entitled to reasonably increase the price after the contract term of the subscription has expired. The purchaser shall be notified of this with reasonable notice and explicitly given the opportunity to object and terminate. In case of objection, the provider is entitled to terminate the subscription for important reasons.

1.4. Delivery and Performance

For orders of digital products, the provider shall provide the delivery, and the purchaser shall be promptly notified thereof. In the event of delivery disruptions due to force majeure, including strikes and lockouts, the obligations of the purchaser and provider shall be suspended for the duration of the delivery disruption. The purchaser shall ensure that the delivery of the stock newsletter to their specified email inbox is ensured. If the inbox is full, unreachable, no longer available, or if delivery is blocked by email system settings, the provider's obligations shall be suspended.

1.5. Subscription Period and Termination

Subscriptions generally begin at the next possible date, unless a later date is specified during ordering. Detailed information on the subscription period is displayed directly with the respective subscription offer within the product description.

No guarantee is expressly given for the realization of forecasts. There is no obligation to update previously made assessments or analyses. 2.

Before making any investments, professional advice from your bank is essential. The statements are based on sources that the publisher and its employees consider trustworthy. However, no liability can be assumed for the accuracy of the content. No guarantee is provided for the accuracy of the charts and data presented by OptionEarner regarding options, commodities, foreign exchange, and stock markets. Especially stocks with low market capitalization (small caps) as well as all listed securities are subject to significant fluctuations, and the liquidity in the securities may be correspondingly low. Therefore, liability for financial losses that may result from using the information presented here for one's own investment decisions is categorically excluded. No advisory contract is concluded between the subscriber and subscribers of OptionEarner, as any assessments relate only to the company itself, not to the reader's investment decision. Furthermore, authors, employees, and presenters may hold both long and short options and shares of the companies discussed.

VI. Final Provisions

1. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction:

These terms and conditions as well as the relationship between the purchaser and provider shall be governed exclusively by German law. The place of jurisdiction is the domicile of the provider, insofar as this is permitted according to the German Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO) and the Regulation on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Decisions in Civil and Commercial Matters (EuGVVO). This is especially the case if the purchaser does not have their domicile or habitual residence in Germany, or if they move there, or if the purchaser is not a consumer within the meaning of § 12 of the German Civil Code (BGB).


2. Setoff Reservation:

The purchaser may only set off claims that are legally established or acknowledged in writing by the provider. The purchaser's right of retention is excluded.



3. Written Form and Amendment of the Terms and Conditions:

Agreements deviating from these terms and conditions between the provider and the purchaser require written form for their validity; this also applies to a waiver of the written form requirement. The provider is entitled to amend these terms and conditions at any time with effect for the future. The terms and conditions deposited with the order shall apply.


4. Contract Language and Contract Texts:

The provider primarily addresses German-speaking purchasers. Therefore, the contract terms and consumer information are available in German and English.


5. Severability Clause:

Should any provision of these terms and conditions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. In such a case, the parties shall replace the ineffective or unenforceable provision with an effective provision that comes as close as possible to achieving the economic purpose of the ineffective or unenforceable provision. The same applies in the event of a regulatory gap.


6. Assignment Prohibition:

The assignment of claims to the customer arising from the business relationship with the provider is excluded.


7. Risk Disclaimer:

The provider points out that investments in securities, money market instruments, derivatives, or other financial instruments are generally associated with risks. The total loss of the invested capital cannot be ruled out. In special forms of trading (such as CFDs, futures, spot market), there may be margin call obligations in extreme cases, so that losses can exceed the invested capital. Reliable statements about the future performance of the financial instruments presented cannot be derived from past performance. The information provided by the provider does not in any way replace expert advice tailored specifically to the personal and financial circumstances of the customer.
