As further described below, in using the Site and Services, you may choose to: (1) make your Content available to all Members as Shared Content; (2) make your Content available to selected Members as Collaborative Content; or (3) make your Content available only to you as Private Content. xridge will use reasonable best efforts to safeguard and use your Content as described in this Agreement and Privacy Policy.

If you choose to post, display or otherwise make your Content available in the Common Areas, such Content is considered Shared Content. By so posting any of your Content in Common Areas of the Site and Services, you hereby grant to xridge, users of the Site or any other xridge platform, and other Members a worldwide, sublicensable, assignable, royalty-free, fully paid, perpetual, irrevocable right and license to make, have made, use, reproduce, modify, translate, distribute, transmit, create derivative works of, perform, display, import, and otherwise exploit, without the requirement to make any payment to you or the need to seek any third party permission, such Content in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter devised or developed, and to allow others to do the same, but at all times, in accordance with xridge’s Privacy Policy.

The license you grant to xridge, as described in this paragraph, continues even if you stop using the Site and Services.

By contrast, when you choose to keep your Content private, we will use reasonable best efforts to keep your Content private. All Content that you do not post, display, or otherwise make available in Common Areas or share with any other selected Member(s) is treated as “Private Content,” unless expressly noted otherwise; this includes your account information, algorithms, datasets, and other Content that only you can access. xridge will not review, share, or otherwise make use of Private Content except as specifically provided in our Privacy Policy or this Agreement. With respect to this Agreement, xridge may access, reproduce, store, delete, review, share, or otherwise make use of Private Content in the following circumstances (including in source code or similar form):

  • In order to comply with any applicable legal or regulatory requirements or order of any court order or governmental authority;

  • In the event that we consider, in our discretion, that such Content may present a security risk;

  • In the event that we consider, in our discretion, that such Content may be relevant to xridge’s defense in any legal proceeding.

Additionally, in accordance with xridge’s efforts to support the creation of high-quality strategies in which to invest, we may review the results of your backtests and the performance and other \“data exhaust\” of your Content. Such performance information includes, but is not restricted to, returns and risk measurements of any backtest executed with the Content. We may generate additional performance data from your Content for the purposes of (a) verifying that software platform changes do not change or break your algorithm or (b) analyzing standardized performance results. You further agree that xridge may reproduce, store, and create derivative works from your Private Content or other Content necessary to evaluate your algorithm. Any testing, evaluation, reproduction or other use will be done with the spirit and intent of protecting your Content. We may also share anonymized and/or aggregated algorithm performance statistics with third parties. Any such external or third party usage of performance data will not be authorized to the extent such usage of performance data would reveal the details and workings of the underlying Content.

With regard to your Private Content, you grant xridge a worldwide, sublicensable, assignable, royalty-free, fully paid, perpetual, irrevocable license to use your Private Content as described in this Agreement, including as discussed in this section. Further, with respect to your Private Content, you represent that: (i) you have the necessary rights to grant xridge the license to use your Private Content as described in this Agreement; and (ii) the Private Content does not violate any of xridge’s Terms of Use. The limited license you grant to xridge regarding use of your Private Content continues even if you stop using the Site and Services.
