Subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Running Alpha Investments, Inc. hereby grants you a single user, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable and revocable right to view or receive Running Alpha Investments, Inc. Content on your compatible computer or device solely for your own investment research application use in connection with the Service and solely as authorized by Running Alpha Investments, Inc. in connection with the Service. Running Alpha Investments, Inc. reserves the right to revoke this limited license at any time in its entirety or with respect to any Running Alpha Investments, Inc.
