BLUECHXP is a safe place to practice picking stocks without risking a single penny. We believe in giving access to the market to everyone, without the need for capital.
We intend to use the User Data in connection with BLUECHXP’s affiliated entities’ proprietary trading and for other commercial purposes, but how we use the User Data may vary, so sometimes we may use trading ideas based upon aggregated User Data and sometimes we may not. Regardless of how affiliates of BLUECHXP chose to trade, we believe that the User Data generated by you and other App Users will be such a valuable resource that if you demonstrate the ability to unlock the Pro Level and actively and positively build your Wallet, we are willing to pay a portion of simulated profits in real money to help make sure our Users take their trading as seriously as we do.
We believe access to the User Data we collect may better equip you in your picks and trading education.

27. Restrictive Covenants
28. Other Important Terms
These Terms are in addition to any other agreements between you and BLUECHXP.
Nothing in these Terms shall create or be deemed to create a partnership, agency, trust arrangement, fiduciary relationship or joint venture between you and BLUECHXP. Neither you nor BLUECHXP shall have any right, power or authority to act, or to create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party.
You agree that breach of the provisions of these Terms would cause irreparable harm and significant injury to BLUECHXP which would be both difficult to ascertain and which would not be compensable by damages alone. As such, you agree that BLUECHXP has the right to enforce the provisions of these terms by injunction (without necessity of posting bond), specific performance or other equitable relief without prejudice to any other rights and remedies BLUECHXP may have for your breach of these Terms.
We reserve the right at any time in our sole discretion to:
· modify, suspend or discontinue our Sites or Services or any service, content, feature or product offered through our Sites or Services, with or without notice;
· charge fees in connection with the use of our Sites or Services;
· modify and/or waive any fees charged in connection with our Sites or Services; and/or
· offer opportunities to some or all Users of our Sites or Services.
You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of our Sites or Services, or any service, content, feature or product offered through our Sites or Services.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
We may terminate these Terms at any time without notice, and accordingly may deny you access to our Sites or Services, if in our sole judgment you fail to comply with any term or provision of these Terms. The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of these Terms for all purposes.
