Terms of Service – Conditions of Use
This legal page is one of a family of legal documents that, collectively, define our relationship (“Agreement”) with you as a web visitor, web user, and/or customer. Use of this web property requires you to access, read, and agree to ALL legal pages published on this website. Until or unless you agree to the provisions of all legal pages, you are forbidden from this site and should exit instantly.
The following describes the legal Terms that apply when visiting, using, or purchasing from/through our website, etc.. These may include a waiver of legal rights you otherwise might have and, as such, are important to know. Know that “website,” for these purposes, means not only the root domain in the url, but also any sub-domains or add-on domains on the same. It may also refer to any website, presently or in the future, that merges with or replaces the current website. Using, and merely visiting, our website imposes upon you the provisions in these Terms. If you do not agree, please leave the site immediately.

THIRD PARTY NOTICE
You understand, acknowledge, and accept the fact that we are not affiliated with any company, person, or organization of any kind mentioned on this website in any way. Company names, products, logos, trade marks and any other proprietary intellectual property or otherwise belongs to the rightful owner, which is not us. You should not assume, even if a company name is in the website/domain name of this website, that there is an express, implied, or otherwise agreement, joint venture, partnership, or other relationship between us as website proprietors and any of these companies that are discussed merely for educational or other purposes.
The opinions, estimates, expectations, and projections contained in any disseminated information are accurate as of the date of release and are subject to change without additional notice. We do our best to ensure that the research has been compiled, obtained, discerned, or interpolated from reliable and trustworthy sources, and therefore believe the positions and beliefs shared are accurate and complete, though obviously not all material known or obtained will be contained, as distilling information into manageable quantity is in large part a goal. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions contained in any disseminated material and are not liable for any loss incurred as a result of using the material in any way. The intent is merely to provide useful information, products, and services, some of which we may be compensated for.
Nothing offered by us should be considered personalized investment advice. While our employees and/or contributors may answer your general customer service questions, they cannot help you with specific investment questions and decisions, as they are not licensed under securities laws to deal with your particular investment situation. No communication by our employees and/or contributors to you should be construed as personal, individualized investment advice. Investors should not rely on the information given by us to make investment decisions. Rather, investors should use the information only as a starting point, at most, to do additional independent research so that the investor is able to make his or her own investment decision. You should consult with competent, professional help and read any available Prospectus or Public Company information.
This website contains or may contain “forward looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21B of the Securities Exchange Act of1934. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, goals, assumptions or future events or performance are not statements of historical fact and may be “forward looking statements.” Forward looking statements are based on expectations, estimates and projections at the time the statements are made that involve a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those presently anticipated. Forward looking statements in this action may be identified through the use of words such as “expects”, “will,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “believes,” or statements indicating certain actions “may,” “could,” or “might” occur.
Just as our website content does not constitute investment advice, and you should therefore consult a trained professional of your choosing, the same is true of other disciplines where expertise is gained through education, experience, and skill-building. Thus, nothing on our website or otherwise disseminated in conjunction with it should be taken as medical, legal, accounting or other such advice. When in doubt, consult the hired help of your choosing, as you are ultimately responsible for your own affairs.

Access to certain areas of this website may be restricted. Access to certain features and/or functionality of this website may be restricted. We reserve the right to restrict access to other areas of the website, or indeed the entire website, at our discretion, at any time. We reserve the right to restrict access to additional features and/or functionality of this website, at our discretion, at any time.
Restrictions: Other, Connected/Related Web Properties
Similarly, we may utilize a third-party solution (stand-alone platform, etc.) or even link out to another website from this website, in which case the same parameters for restricting access apply.

Restricted Access: Registration & Login Credentials
Access to restricted portions of this website, or features & functionality of this website, may be throttled by requiring user registration and the issuance of Login Credentials. User registration often includes, but is in no way limited to, a Username (also referred to as a “Login ID” or “User ID” or otherwise) and Password (“Login Credentials”). Usernames are often simply a unique identifier, such as an email address, but may also include unique, user-created data points. You must ensure that your Username and Password are kept safe and confidential. If we provide you with a Username and/or password to enable you to access restricted areas of our website or other content or services, we encourage you to change your Password if the technology allows you to do so. We also encourage you to change your Password regularly, and use a strong Password that you only use for our website.
Restricted Access: Scope of Use & Duty of Care
Unless otherwise expressly stated in writing, your Login Credentials are issued for your personal use only. As you are responsible for the protection of your Login Credentials, you are likewise responsible for all use that occurs pursuant to those Login Credentials. We encourage you to log out from your account, where possible, at the end of each session. You are responsible for notifying us if your account is thought to be compromised in any way including, but not limited to, unauthorized use. Any damage to, or loss of, your account as a function of your negligence or vulnerability to hacking of your Login Credentials is your responsibility and in no way covered by us.
You may not share your user ID and/or password with anyone for any reason, either directly or indirectly. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your user ID or password.
Restricted Access: Replacement Accounts
We may, at our sole discretion, change, modify, upgrade, downgrade or otherwise alter the restricted access component of this website or any associated web property. This may involve you having to create, or being issued, new Login Credentials. Any rights you have are to the material (products, services, or otherwise) and not to a specific user interface or platform.

Restricted Access: Rejection

Restricted Access: Termination
We may disable your Login Credentials, at our sole discretion, if you breach any of the policies or terms governing your use of our website or any other contractual obligation you owe to us. Grounds for termination include, but are in no way limited to, providing false registration information, sharing Login Credentials (directly or indirectly), defeating the “protected” nature of the restricted material, etc.. Upon having your account terminated, and future access denied, any product, service, information or otherwise previously downloaded or otherwise appropriated from the website, member’s area, or otherwise shall remain subject to these Terms.
You understand that, except for information, products or services clearly identified as being supplied by our website, our website does not operate, control or endorse any information, products or services on the Internet in any way. Except for information identified by our website as such, all information, products and services offered through our website or on the Internet generally are offered by third parties that are not affiliated with our website, and we may be compensated.

Doing so will be considered a violation of our intellectual property and dealt with accordingly. If you wish to seek an exception, you must request written permission from us.
You are allowed to create text hyperlinks (outbound links) to the public portions of this website, so long as the context is appropriate to the destination on this website, your text hyperlink does not state or imply any endorsement or approval of your text hyperlink (or the website or person/entity creating it), and your text hyperlink does not in any way suggest a relationship (partnership, joint venture, etc.) between us.
Our website contains links to third party Websites. Our website makes no representations whatsoever about any other website which you may access through this one or which may link to this website.

We do not necessarily endorse, recommend, suggest or otherwise make any overture or prompt for action regarding any product or service offered. You should assume we are compensated for any purchases you make. Again, any income claims should be construed as atypical results and you assume the risk that inferior results obtain, including losses, for which we carry no responsibility or liability.
User Posts, Communications & Submissions
This section covers any and all material (information, data, written word, images, videos, sound clips, etc.) posted, communicated, submitted, or otherwise by you to us. This section applies irrespective of the conduit or the destination of the tendering. Accordingly, it applies whether the material is tendered through or to our website, discussion board, forum, other internet interface, email accounts, third-party storage devices, text messages, uploads of any kind, social media platforms and accounts, in person, via mail, or otherwise.
As a user of our website, you are responsible for your own posts and are responsible for the consequences of their posting. As a user of our website, you are likewise responsible for your own communications and are responsible for the consequences of generating them. You are likewise responsible for you own submissions and are responsible for the consequences of tendering them. You must not do the following things: post material that is copyrighted, unless you are the copyright owner or have the permission of the copyright owner to post it; post material that reveals trade secrets, unless you own them or have the permission of the owner; post material that infringes on any other intellectual property rights of others or on the privacy or publicity rights of others; post material that is obscene, profane, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, or embarrassing to another user of our website or any other person or entity; post a sexually-explicit image; post advertisements or solicitations of business; post chain letters or pyramid schemes; impersonate another person; post in violation of any law that forbids online activity of children, minors, or others proscribed by law from participating.
You are provided the opportunity to tender material by, through, and to us (in any way noted, without limitation), but we are under no obligation to allow you to do so, or allow you to continue to do so. You have the right to participate in this manner, but we have no responsibility to sustain any public display of your efforts. We have the sole, exclusive right to allow your material to display if and as we wish, and may terminate such display at any time without recourse, for any reason, or for no reason whatsoever.
Material posted, communicated, submitted, or otherwise tendered is done so with the understanding that you are providing us (or our representatives, employees, agents, anyone so delegated authorization, etc.) a non-exclusive, but irrevocable, royalty-free and perpetual worldwide license to use your material without restriction. Use includes, but is in no way limited to, copying, reproducing in any format, modifying (including creating derivative works), selling, leveraging for any gain, trading, otherwise transmitting or distributing, displaying in any setting, in any context, for any purpose. This granting of rights supersedes any proprietary and/or intellectual property rights you may have (including, but not limited to, patents, trademarks, etc.) is said material. Use of such material may also involve us identifying you as the source of said material, and such disclosure could include your name, website, or more personal information you have provided to us.
Pursuant to U.S. Copyright law requirements, you are hereby notified that any original material you produce & deliver to or through us (or any technology we own or use) is considered “work made for hire.” Accordingly, we exclusively own the copyright and all other intellectual property rights pertaining to this original material from the point of inception. As such, we have worldwide, never-expiring rights to leverage such original material as we deem appropriate. Should any original material not be construed as “work made for hire,” you nevertheless agree that you have freely assigned all rights conceivable, without compensation, in said material. In the case of non-original, or pre-existing, material you reproduce will be construed as owned in tandem with us.
Social Media Warning (Divulgence of Personal & Private Information)
Social media has provided a platform for internet users to disclose much personal information about themselves, in a way that seems innocuous, if not proper and expected. However, more than a few folks have already lived to regret personal information that was shared either by them or others. This has long been true of simple email. It is exponentially true of social websites and applications for social media on any other website, including this one. You are cautioned against carelessly disclosing information.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless our website, its members, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to our website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any use of our website or violation of this Agreement (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing our website.
4. Third Party Rights.
The provisions of paragraphs 2 (Use of the Service), and 3 (Indemnification) are for the benefit of our website and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third party information providers to the Service. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on its/their own behalf.
5. Term; Termination.
We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of these Terms and to take any action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any data necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses, usage history, IP addresses and traffic data.
This Agreement, in whole or in part, may be terminated without notice at any time for any reason. The provisions of paragraphs 1 (Copyright, Licenses and Idea Submissions), 2 (Use of the Service), 3 (Indemnification), 4 (Third Party Rights), 6 (Hiring an Attorney / No Attorney-Client Relationship), and 7 (Miscellaneous) shall survive any termination of this Agreement, in whole or in part.
6. Hiring an Investment Advisor, Attorney, or Medical or Other Professional / No Attorney-Client Relationship or Fiduciary Capacity.
Choosing a lawyer, doctor, or investment advisor is a serious matter and should NOT be based solely on data contained on our website or in advertisements.
The law is constantly changing and the data may not be complete or accurate depending on your particular legal issue. Each legal issue depends on its individual facts and different jurisdictions have different laws and regulations. This is why you should seriously consider hiring licensed, professional counsel in your jurisdiction.
Medical issues are complex, and can often stem from both organic and psychological factors. Never should a website be used as a source of diagnosing or treating medical problems.
Financial matters are highly individualistic. Risk tolerance is just one factor to consider before making any investments or financial decisions. For these, and other, reasons, you should look to the guidance of a trained professional, not a website.
You may send us email, but in no instance will this communication in any way be construed as initiating an attorney-client relationship, or other professional relationship, and so the contact should not include confidential or sensitive data because your communication will not be treated as privileged or confidential.
You hereby agree that you will make any and all purchases, so-called “internal” and “external” (as herein expounded upon), in good faith and fair dealing. You affirm that you only make purchases you can afford, intend to pay for, and can stand to realize no return on investment from. You agree that every purchase carries a risk, markets can change (sometimes rapidly), and that products and services can become obsolete – either through natural atrophy or by design (i.e. – planned obsolescence). You agree that your purchases are being made solely for yourself and your own purposes, or on behalf of another as described henceforth. If you are making a purchase on behalf of another, and are submitting their personal data to us or a third-party, you affirm that you have the express permission to do so.
For the sake of this section, “internal purchases” refer to those purchases made from this website, or associated shopping carts or secure checkout pages (not to exclude other approved payment arrangement), that involve you buying the rights to products, services, or otherwise that are offered by us (whether generically, by company name, “doing business as,” trade name, or otherwise).
Purchases are made in the currency designated. Typically this will be evident in a shopping cart or checkout page, although other payment arrangements can be made where agreed upon. You are responsible for any currency conversion or other bank or third-party fees as a function of using a credit card, debit card, PayPal, crypto currency, or other acceptable payment form or financial service. You agree to operate with good faith and fair dealing when making purchases, and to satisfy all financial obligations to third parties you interacted with in the course and conduct of making such purchases. The preceding provisions apply whether you materially participate in the purchase yourself, someone assists you, or someone acts on your behalf.
Refunds/Returns: “Internal” Purchases
Any refund or return policy applicable to any product or service offered by us or out website would be made known at the point of, and certainly prior to, purchase. You should therefore refer to the specific policy applicable to each given purchase. As a general rule, digital products cannot actually be returned, and refunds are thus a bit of a legal fiction. Consequently, purchases (especially digital products) should be made after careful decision and with the intention that a refund would only be sought in extraordinary circumstances. Moreover, if no explicit refund or return policy is cited, you should assume that none exists and all purchases are final.
Refunds/Returns: “External” Purchases
Refunds, if any, for external purchases are governed by the third parties from whom you made the purchase.
This Agreement shall be treated as though executed, set in force, and performed in the State or Province or Region of our address on record (in the contact information area of this website) by default, or else by designating a “Governing Law” jurisdiction plainly on this website here, in parentheses (San Jose, CA, USA). Any designation made here in the preceding parenthetical entry takes priority. No parenthetical entry defaults to the location identified in the contact information of this website. Accordingly, these Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with those laws, without regard to conflict of law principles.
Class actions (class arbitrations, combined or consolidated arbitrations/actions, merged arbitrations/actions, private attorney general actions, etc.) are prohibited, and you thus waive your right to participate in any type of representative, consolidated, class or similar action. You may, of course, seek to resolve disputes on an individual basis.
