Terms of use for the AJ Bell Android devices mobile app

AJ Bell Business Solutions Limited and its affiliates, AJ Bell Management Limited and AJ Bell Securities Limited (“AJ Bell” or “we”) licence the AJ Bell Youinvest mobile app (“the App”) to you in accordance with these terms and conditions (“App Terms”). These App Terms together with the terms and conditions applicable to the SIPP, ISA, Lifetime ISA, Junior ISA or Dealing Account you have with us (each a “Product”) (“Product Terms and Conditions”) and the privacy policy (collectively “the App Agreement”). You can view Product Terms and Conditions and the privacy policy at youinvest.co.uk.  

You should read these App Terms carefully. The App Agreement contains all the terms and conditions relating the licence of the App and the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you related to the App (“App Services”). By downloading and using the App, the App Agreement will automatically apply to you, so you should make sure that you read the App Agreement carefully before you download and use the App.

We reserve all rights in and to the App not expressly granted to you under the App Agreement. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

AJ Bell does not provide financial or investment advice and no content or information on the App or accessible via the App (whether provided by us or a third party) is intended to, nor does it constitute, financial or investment advice. You should contact a financial adviser if you need financial or investment advice. In addition, investor relations materials and other content are not offers to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy, underwrite or convert any security.

Scope of licence

We grant you a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to use the App on any authorised Android™ device that you own or control and as permitted by (i) the rules governing the use of your device and Google play™ (the "Usage Rules") and (ii) the App Agreement. You must not:

  • use the App on any Android™ device that you do not own or control;
  • distribute or make the App available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time;
  • rent, lease, lend, sell, redistribute or sublicense the App; or
  • copy (except as expressly permitted by this licence, the Usage Rules and the App Agreement), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the App, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open sourced components included with the App).

If you breach the terms of this licence, you may be subject to legal action and damages. The terms of the licence will govern any upgrades provided by us unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate licence.

Use and security of your data

You agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including (without limitation) technical information about your device, system and application software and peripherals, which is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of the App Services. We may use and store this information, which may personally identify you, including your IP address, in order to provide services or technologies to you and to improve our products. 

Access to and use of the App Services provided by us via mobile networks may also involve the electronic transmission of personal financial information across the networks of mobile operators. Because we do not operate or control these networks, we cannot guarantee the privacy or security of data sent over them. Additionally, the wireless device browser is generally pre-configured by your mobile service provider. Check with your service provider for information about their privacy and security practices.

The App enables access to our and third party services and websites (“the Web Services”). Use of the Web Services requires Internet access and use of certain Web Services may require you to accept additional terms. 

You understand that by using any of the Web Services, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language, and that the results of any search or entering of a particular URL may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Web Services at your sole risk and that neither we nor our agents shall have any liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.

Certain Web Services may display, include or make available content, data, information, applications or materials from third parties (“Third Party Materials”) or provide links to certain third party web sites.

Financial information displayed by any Web Services is for general informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as investment or financial advice. Before executing any securities transaction based upon information obtained through the Web Services, you should consult with a financial or securities professional who is legally qualified to give financial or securities advice. Location data provided by any Web Services is for basic navigational purposes only and is not intended to be relied upon in situations where precise location information is needed or where erroneous, inaccurate, time-delayed or incomplete location data may lead to death, personal injury, property or environmental damage. Neither we, nor our agents, nor any of our content providers guarantees the availability, accuracy, completeness, reliability, or timeliness of stock information, location data or any other data displayed by any Web Services.

No portion of the Web Services may be reproduced in any form or by any means. You agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Web Services, in any manner, and you shall not exploit the Web Services in any unauthorised way whatsoever, including but not limited to, using the Web Services to transmit any computer viruses, worms, trojan horses or other malware, or by trespass or burdening network capacity. You further agree not to use the Web Services in any manner to harass, abuse, stalk, threaten, defame or otherwise infringe or violate the rights of any other party, and that neither we nor our agents are in any way responsible for any such use by you, nor for any harassing, threatening, defamatory, offensive, infringing or illegal messages or transmissions that you may receive as a result of using any of the Web Services.

In addition, Web Services and Third Party Materials that may be accessed from, displayed on or linked to from your device are not available in all languages or in all countries or regions.
