Terms of use for the AJ Bell IOS mobile dealing app

AJ Bell Limited and its affiliates, AJ Bell Management Limited and AJ Bell Securities Limited ("AJ Bell" or "we") license the AJ Bell Youinvest Dealing App ("the Dealing App") to you in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions together with the terms and conditions applicable to the SIPP, ISA, Junior ISA or Dealing Account you have with us (each a "Product") ("Product Terms and Conditions"), the Privacy Policy  and the Legal Policy (collectively "the App Agreement"). You can view Product Terms and Conditions, the Privacy Policy and the Legal Policy at http://www.youinvest.co.uk.

You should read these Terms and Conditions carefully. The App Agreement contains all the terms and conditions relating to the licence of the Dealing App and the provision of Services. By downloading and using the Dealing App, you accept the App Agreement.

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


AJ Bell does not provide financial or investment advice and no content or information on the Dealing App or accessible via the Dealing 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-transferable licence to use the Dealing App on any authorised iPhoneT, iPadT or other Apple device that you own or control and as permitted by (i) the rules governing the use of your device and the iTunes App Store Terms and Conditions (the "Usage Rules") and (ii) the App Agreement. You must not:

  • use the Dealing App on any iPhoneT, iPadT or other Apple device that you do not own or control;
  • distribute or make the Dealing 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 Dealing 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 Dealing 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 Dealing App).

If you breach these Terms and Conditions, you may be subject to legal action and damages. These Terms and Conditions 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 software updates, product support and other services to you related to the Dealing App ("Services"). We may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify you, to improve our products or to provide services or technologies to you.

Access to and use of the 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 of 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 licence granted by these Terms and Conditions is effective until terminated by you or us or upon the withdrawal of the current Dealing App. Your rights granted by these Terms and Conditions will terminate automatically without notice if you fail to comply with any term(s) of the App Agreement. Upon termination of the licence, you must stop using the Dealing App and destroy all copies (full or partial) of it.

Nevertheless, you agree to use the 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 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.
